St. Barth Properties, which is affiliated with Exceptional Stays, offers the ultimate collection of luxury villas on an island steeped with perpetual legend, sun, and sand. The company is known for its personalized service as well as having a concierge team that services guests in the most detailed way from the moment their St. Barth Commuter plane touches down until they leave. St. Barth Properties offers a friendly team in the United States and on the ground in St. Barth to make clients’ stay seamless, easy, and truly relaxing. We experienced this firsthand with a five-night stay at Villa Sunrise Sunset in Pointe Milou – one of the most serene parts of the island.
Villa Sunrise Sunset sits on a private perch of rock overlooking a wide stretch of The Caribbean Sea. The sunsets are so beautiful and intense, they informed the name of this villa which has views from Lorient and over to St. Jean – including the famous airport landing strip. The villa feels, immediately upon entering, like it’s set in a secret garden, tucked away. The open-air concept offers three bedrooms with their own bathrooms and ample outdoor areas for taking-in the spectacular views.
There are two bedrooms inside the main home and another located in a separate pavilion with its own garden space. This makes the perfect stay for family members of different age groups or a group of friends looking for togetherness and, also, a little privacy.
Bathrooms are clean and white, with granite countertops and rain showers. St. Barth Properties makes sure to have all necessary things set for guests upon their arrival. This can include extra towels, sheets, daily housekeeping services, and even pre-shopping services to stock the villa for your arrival. For island first-timers, this is a fabulous service as there a several grocery and market options on the island and navigating them can take away from your precious beach time.
The largest bedroom in the main house is sizeable and boasts phenomenal views over the sea from a private terrace. It’s the perfect spot to have morning coffee and listen to the ocean waves in the distance.
The kitchen inside Villa Sunrise Sunset is large and elegant. The space includes a large refrigerator, plenty of cabinets for snacks, a Nespresso machine, and an endless selection of plates, cups, wine glasses, and more for lunches or dinners at home.
The coziest area of Villa Sunrise Sunset, to me, is the little TV nook which is perfect for a late-night chat with friends or family over a glass of wine. The television, for those who choose to watch it while relaxing, offers satellite television as well as most smart TV applications.
But, far and away, the most magical spot for a meal is at the outdoor dining table. There is also an outdoor living area, but the table is perfect for breakfast with the iconic views. If desired, St. Barth Properties can book a private chef or have their concierge team deliver breakfast each morning to your group – so you can simply wake up and enjoy.
The pool area at Villa Sunrise Sunset is serene and special. Surrounding the sparkling waters that cascade over an infinity edge is comfortable lounge chairs with towels. You can spend hours here sipping a cocktail and soaking up the sun, loaded-up with SPF of course. And, with no noises except the chirping birds overhead, you won’t find a more relaxing spot.
I spent much of my time at Villa Sunrise Sunset here by the pool. Of course, I left for a dinner here and there, or a quick errand. But, when you have all of this in one place, who needs to leave? St. Barth Properties not only curates a fabulous selection of villas on this incredible island to choose from, but they really do offer many different price points and styles. They make your stay so easy and eliminate the need to think much beyond what you’re going to wear to the beach. This, in all actuality, is truly vacation – and they know how to give their guests that very valuable feeling.
