“Great Family Vacation in Guadeloupe”

The first review from the Americans. Even if you don’t speak French, Guadeloupe is still easily manageable. You may feel a bit isolated but everyone is very nice and patient while you use charades to explain what you need. Marie speaks enough English to help with some bookings and connected us to her friend who was great about helping us prioritize outings and adventures. The area where the house is seems to be a central location for foreign home owners and French tourists, so it has more of a French feel and less Caribbean than other parts of the island. This is neither a negative nor a positive. On the positive side it is very safe and has all the conveniences of home. The negative is that it is lacking a bit of the local Caribbean flare. I think if we go back, we would choose the same area, but the adventurous side of me would like something less European. You will need a car to get around.

The other reviews of this house are very accurate. The pictures capture it well. It is spacious and the outside space with the pool deck is great. The pool is pretty small, but great for kids or cooling off. The house opens up nicely to give you an indoor outdoor living experience. If you have had enough of the sun, you can relax under the covered portion of the deck, or in the living room and still look out at the ocean. The view is terrific and there was a wonderful breeze the entire time we were there. There is a very lightly traveled street in front of the house and there are other houses so the view is not completely unobstructed. However the hill is so steep that you are basically looking over the houses in front of you. We had our kids seven and four years old, and the house is child friendly for those ages. One of the charms is the ability to open the house up for the breeze but this may be a safety concern if your kids cannot swim because there is no way to close off access to the pool.

What the other reviews don’t make totally clear is this house is split into three flats. There is a three bedroom basement apartment, the three bedroom main floor apartment (with pool), and a two bedroom upstairs apartment. When were on the main floor with the pool, and the other apartments weren’t occupied. If you were traveling with friends and wanted to have your own separate space but meet in the middle for pool time and relaxation, this would be a fantastic option.

The Wi-Fi is good but not great. At times it was strong enough for the kids to watch a Netflix (only English option) but not always. We woke up one day without power but figured out the fuse box and then had a full day without water due to neighborhood construction. Marie brought us water and was always available to assist and yet very respectful of our privacy.

The other reviewers mentioned the beach and the restaurant, so I won’t go into it too much, but the food is very good for having your feet in the sand. The beach is beautiful and protected so the kids can play in the water without getting trounced by waves. You do need to walk a bit to actually get onto the beach and the hill coming back is steep. There are many great excursions to do from all parts of the island.
