We're looking forward to vacationing on St Barts with another couple (we're late 30's) and have made some decisions on what kind of place we want to stay. We'd also like to rent owner-direct since we're on something of a budget as well.
1st choice was Villa Flamands Blue (great owner, views, location, well maintained)--- friends love it on their regular trips...unfortunately it's booked our dates. Private would be nice since we all like to occasionally tan without suits. Maybe we are being too picky? Checking to see if anyone here has suggestions, thanks!
Otherwise, we just bag our preferred dates and book with Jeff the owner of FB.
