Renovated villa on St. Barts Welcomes families back after makeover

NEWPORT, RI, December 2005 – Tucking children into bed is more fun than ever for a family holiday in a St. Barts villa. Villa SIB PAR, a favorite for families in the past, has now been re-launched and is now even more inviting. While some villas accept adults only, the newly renovated Villa SIB PAR on Mont Jean on St. Barts welcomes families. It offers three bedrooms under one roof with the opportunity for a fourth, perfect for grandparents, in an adjacent accommodation with its own terrace and plunge pool.

SIB PAR is built on one level and has views in both directions, toward Pointe Milou and Marigot Bay. In the heart of the villa, on a covered terrace there is an open air living area with rattan furniture with bright colored cushions. The master suite is located off the pool area and is the largest with a dressing room, office and private terrace opening to the garden and the view. This bedroom is truly wonderful and gives the impression of a luxury yacht with its polished floors and the elegant, refined décor based on the ever-changing colors of the sea and sky. A king sized guest bedroom offers a private terrace with magnificent views. An enchanting second guest bedroom is medium in size and is recommended for teenagers or children. The villa has mature gardens with a little path leading to a barbeque area and views over Pointe Milou and St. Martin.

From Jan. 6-Apr. 14 the weekly rate is $10,500 and drops to $7,000 from Apr. 15-Dec. 14.

Janis Gordon, Wimco's Vice President of Marketing, says that Villa SIB PAR was off the market for five years but has new owners who have created a new, cheerful look for this family favorite.

"If you liked it before, wait till you see it now!" she says.

Many St. Barts villas that are exclusively represented by Wimco, the Newport, RI, and London-based luxury vacation villa and hotel reservations company, have been completely renovated; and there are several brand-new properties to tempt visitors away this winter.

Rates include accommodation only and daily maid service. Wimco can tailor-make the villa holidays to suit each client’s needs for private chefs, in-villa spa programs, yacht charters or simply a restaurant reservation.
