Home in St Barts - luxury villas

On the Island With or Without Children

While the island of St Barts is both madly expensive and packed with tourists over the holiday season, it turns out that August is the perfect time to go; lower rates and uncrowded beaches.

Although it is possible to find some good hotel options, renting a house is definitely the best choice for a relaxed holiday, particularly when kids are around.
By booking through Home in St Barts you will enjoy the privilege to select your exclusive accommodation among the best on the island.
