we had a terrific experience renting this unit from Francois. no issues with payment, check-in was simple and attending any time share sales efforts were voluntary.
the access to pool and beach facilities at the neighboring Westing was terrific. location was excellent if you are looking for a relaxing time [the more partying types should look for something nearer to philipsburg i believe] while reasonably convenient to the fine french dining in Grand Case [be careful if you do go there NOT to take the winding road to the right when you exit the entry road from the hotel, which some gps units will suggest!]. The DBC is convenient to ferry to St Barts from nearby Oyster Pond, but do allow plenty of extra time if you are linking up to any sailing activities out of Simpson Bay.
the DBC staff provided lots of extra towels above and beyond the once a week full room cleaning and the central staff was very helpful in providing a few small items for the kitchen. the staff there was also helpful with directions and other advise on activities.
the unit itself was terrific. beds were very comfortable and large. kitchen was well appointed and appliances were modern and efficient. the dining and living room areas were very comfortable. the unit was nicely decorated with typical seashore motif items. the view (from our 2nd floor unit) was lovely as we were high enough even if not 'oceanfront' to not be entirely blocked by the intervening buildings.
all in all a wonderful experience.
This was a beautiful spacious condo with a spectacular view over Dawn Beach and high enough to see over to Oyster Pond. Lots of room, very spacious rooms Possibly the most comfortable bed and pillows that I have slept in during thirty plus years of traveling. The balcony was a little narrow, adequate for two people to sit and read, but difficult to move around on. Easy access to hotel and beach, but the entire area is a bit off the main drag. A rental car is a necessity for getting around and almost essential if you want to buy food in a grocery and eat in the condo. Good restaurants in the area
