crowds,safety on Pelican Key, Beacon Hill

My family is looking at several villa rentals in Pelican Key and Beacon Hill. We do not want to be in a crowded/high traffic/noisy(airplanes) area. We would love to be near a nice, quiet beach.

Do either of these places fit our criteria? Any other suggestions?

I find Pelican Key to be very crowded, especially the villa area and quite hilly while Beacon Hill is nearer the airport traffic and may or may not be a problem. You'll need to drive to the beach.

Terres Basses is far more upcale and quiet with three top beaches.

I have stayed in Beacon Hill and there were no airplane noise issues. I have also stayed at several places right next to the airport on Simpson Bay and also had no problem as air traffic is almost non existent after dark. Where we stayed in Beacon Hill we were also able to walk to both Simpson Bay and Maho when it had sand. I understand after the latest storm that the sand is gone.

Will be back again in less than a month.
