We had a wonderful time staying at Villa Zen in Petit Bourg. We wanted to be close to the airport and in the middle of the island during our stay and this villa was perfect. The villa is clean and decorated cheerfully. The kitchen is well-stocked, so we could cook our own meals. On our night of arrival we took advantage of the possibility to have a ready-made dinner waiting for you. Sonia had prepared the most delicious authentic French/Creole dinner for us, that lasted us for the next day as well.
The pool was right in front of our villa and our kids loved it. With a family with three small kids, the washing machine was great.
Carrefour and other supermarkets and a bakery were a five-minute drive away.
We had such a good time and it was a joy to be able to practice our French. I appreciated how Sonia and Kevyn checked in a couple of times during our stay to see how we were doing. The owner was always quick to respond to any inquiries.
The reason I am rating it 4 stars instead of 5 is because inside the villa there are some minor things we noticed. We could only get one stove burner to work, the Wi-Fi would quit working randomly and then start up again. Also there weren’t any smoke alarms or fire extuinguishers inside the house. There is nothing in walking distance of the villa.
However, if you have access to a car, and are looking for a secluded accommodation to really get away from it all, I highly recommend staying here. You won’t regret it.
We had such a wonderful time staying at Henri and Anita's place. Even before our arrival, they reached out to us offered help in setting up/organizing some activities for us on the island. They met us upon arrival and welcomed us with dinner and breakfast the next morning. The home and property are absolutely beautiful and practical. We, my husband and I, vacationed with our 2 younger daughters (2 and 8) and my parents. Everybody was very comfortable in the home and there was plenty of space. It was clean, inviting, very well equipped, and the entire decor and ambiance was of natural elegance.
Because the owners live upstairs, they were readily available to help us with anything (e.g. trying to book a local attraction, translating...) or in case something needs maintenance, but the layout of the property and house is also designed in such a way, that one could have complete privacy.
The location was perfect for us, too. It is centrally located and great if you are looking to explore (as we did) different parts of the island. Most destinations were within a 45 minute drive. There is also a small local bakery in town and grocery store a few car minutes away.
We had an incredible vacation! Thanks to Henri and Anita, we got an authentic experience of this beautiful island and its charming local life. Our expectation were far exceeded and we hope to go back again some day.
