Villa rentals on St. Barts recently renovated 'New Season, New Look'

LONDON, ENGLAND, SEPTEMBER 2004: As the weather here gets colder and we leave summer behind us, the Caribbean is heating up in preparation for its peak season. Many of the villa’s on St Barts, which are exclusively represented by Wimco International have been renovated and there are several completely new properties to tempt visitors away from the cold, grey winter in Britain.

The recently completed Villa MIC basks in the sun all day and the view from the hill in Lurin, where it is located, takes on a magical quality in the evening with the twinkling lights of Gustavia and the harbour below. This modern, spacious, 3-bedroom property provides its guests with every comfort. Hand-made beds and sliding glass screens are just some of the features of the bedrooms, and the spacious pool area has a BBQ and weatherproof billiard table for outside entertainment. Prices from £5,917 per week.

Another new property on Wimco International’s books is the unusual 4-bedroom Villa Au Soleil. Just a few minutes from Gustavia and the beach, this one-level villa is semi-circular in design, giving all the rooms the advantage of a beautiful view. The front of the villa looks out over St Barths and an endless ocean and to the back there is a lush, tropical garden with a gazebo overlooking a lily pond and waterfall. Each bedroom also has its own private terrace, ensuite bathroom and outside shower. From £11,834 per week.

One of the larger houses on St Barts, Villa Sky, in Petite Saline, is blessed with some of the best sunset views on the island. Sky’s new owners have had all the rooms redecorated in luxurious style and vibrant Caribbean colours. The 4-bedroom villa already has a 44 foot swimming pool (one of the largest pools on the island), 8 foot of which is shallow and so perfect for small children. The pool also has its own underwater ledge enabling guests to enjoy cocktails whilst facing the stunning views. A pool gate is provided for families with small children should they require it. From £4,615 per week.

The three bedroom Villa L’Etoile du Berger (Northern Star) has recently been refurbished. Perched high up on the Colombier hillside with sweeping views over the bay des Flamands, this high-tech villa has three master suites, all equipped with Dish network TV, a DVD player and an incredible view. The central living area has a full-entertainment centre, internet access, air conditioning and even remote controlled windows. The kitchen is fit for the most gourmet of chef’s and there are both indoor and outdoor dining areas. From £6,509 per week.

The elegantly re-furbished, 3 bedroom, Villa BJJ offers its guests amazing 180 degree views of the sea from its covered seating area. The new, sleek, custom made, hardwood cabinets hide an entertainment system and a zoned sound system with speakers indoor and out. The entire house is now also wired for internet access. One of the three bedrooms is in a separate villa with a private terrace, there is a 15 metre infinity pool which cascades over the front and side of the villa and the whole property is surrounded by lush gardens. From £5,325 per week.

All prices include accommodation only and daily maid service. For further information and reservations contact Wimco International on 0870 850 1144 /
