This place is indeed spectacular. The house is huge , new and has all the necessary amenities plus tons of extras. The terrace has humongous accommodation area for a party of ten, with hammock, table, coal grill and sofas . And the house is divided in two family areas , very convenient. Kitchen is fully stocked. The owner Christian was extremely helpful. We had five little kids with us and he had the house ready with pool toys , milk in the fridge and fruit /cookies/juice and homemade bread. It felt so welcoming! When we couldn’t find something he offfered to come in the middle of the night to help! And when we needed a vacuum cleaner to clean the cars he brought it in as soon as we asked. Very courteous .
The view from the villa is unbeatable , the most beautiful sunsets over Carribean , and we saw rainbow quite a few times. There are not many bugs and hardly any mosquitoes because of the breeze.
The pool is great too, it has a night light as well. you can relax in the pool and watch the sunsets. The only thing about the pool is that the one non-fenced side drops two meters down to the ground, so we had a kid fall down from it first day. No injuries thankfully , but pretty scary. So parents of kids need to make sure not to let kids climb on that other side of the pool(our kid wasn’t allowed but didn’t listen to us , so he learned his lesson the hard way!)
The drive up to the villa is very hilly, and parts of the road are Unpaved, but we had a beetle car and it made it well up and down, no issues.
Basse Terre is a gem on its own so you have to visit, you didn’t really see Guadeloupe if you weren’t on that side.
The area has two big supermarkets very close and dozens of French bakeries as well as fish market , fruit stand on the corner and some of the most beautiful beaches in the island. We hiked up the volcano, saw botanical gardens, zoo, the falls, Museum if cocoa etc.
this area has a lot to offer and the villa was just the best location to relax . Kids had a blast in the pool every night. Thank you for this truly special accommodation!
Blue Haven villas is beautiful and Jo/Patrick are great hosts. Although we could have had better weather, we found Guadeloupe to be a beautiful island of friendly people and tons of things to do. Brushing up on your French is a must! Thanks for the memories...hope to be back soon!
