My new husband is a busy attorney back at home but here he's RELAXED wearing this new shirt I picked out for him. This was our 2nd time to the villa, and it was even better! I took this photo midway throught our vacation at Flamands Blue. We did all the beaches, snorkeled, dined and shopped. This is a beautiful, serene place that's in our hearts 'till next time.
What made our St. Barts 10
day vacation paradise?
Hard to select one, but beaches, dining, snorkeling,
and the Jacuzzi any time of day or evening were at the top.
Jeff and his manager keep this villa in impecable condition. We highly
reccomend this place for
the views, location and professionalism of the staff. This photo
is of the us on the beach we enjoyed most, Flamands, just
down the hillside from Flamands Blue.
| "Flamands Blue was exactly right for our honeymoon. We considered
Europe, but on
St. Barts we had the beautiful beaches along with the flavor of France and Sweden. After talking with a prior Guest who told us what a great time they had we booked right away. There is not a single thing we would change. We wanted total privacy at a reasonable price - and that's exactly what we got! Jeff's directions helped guide us and we fell in love with this Island. We plan a return visit to celebrate our anniversary."
Kristen and Jeremy - Baltimore, MD.
| "We visited St. Barts by sailboat and liked it so much we
wanted to return and stay in a beautiful villa. In my wife's words, Flamands
Blue is simply fabulous!. The views are dramatic and the location is convenient
yet private. We visited all the beaches but most enjoyed just walking to
Flamands for the day, and returning when we grew 'tired' of looking out
on the turquoise ocean. After dinner we'd soak in the Jacuzzi under the
stars- and plan our next day. It was the first time in our many trips to
the Caribbean that we were actually HOMESICK to leave. We've already booked
for next year."
Don and Susan - Coppell, TX
| "We like to vacation with another couple so we
chose a spacious home where we could spread out. Jeff and his Manager took
care of every single item to make our stay easy and pleasant. The villa
is situated above one of the Island's best beaches with beautiful ocean
views from the large porches. We really had a lovely vacation at Flamands
Spalding and Sandy - Morehead City, NC
| We had a teriffic time on our 11 year anniversary at Flamands Blue. The views are beautiful, the villa is private, and we took advantage of the pristine beach by walking down for a daily swim. Gustavia and St. Jean were nearby for great shopping and we had excellent, romantic dining in the evenings. The staff is absolutely first rate. Just what we needed! We hope to return soon.
Anthony and Andrea - Columbus, Ohio
| "The inspiration for our St Barts vacation came at a Jimmy
Buffett concert where we heard him describe it's beauty, in his prelude
to 'Cheeseburger in Paradise'. Fran contacted Jeff to plan our family
vacation who was VERY knowledgable and enthusiastic in planning our trip.
With the great views from the two large terraces (you always want to be
outside) we were together but never cramped--even with all of us in the
Jacuzzi at night. The kids had their own large bath with double sinks and
Master Suite with the ocean view was perfect for us. No one wanted to return home."
Fran and Gerry - Harrisburg, PA
| "We're 2nd timers to Flamands Blue. We met Jeff on our first
St. Barts trip on the return flight (we'd stayed in a hotel) and chose this
Villa for our next one, a much better value - since it's an entire home
for us at the single bedroom rate. Business warrants that we both travel
extensively and we love the comfort and intimacy of this Villa. The Manager
called to check in on us during the week and we replied that everything
was perfect. This photo of us is at a romantic restaurant on what's become
our favorite island getaway.
Karen and Mario - New York City.
It's impossible NOT to love this place. The staff and dining recomendations
were perfect too. The days were spent on the beach of course and usually
ended with drinks on the villa terrace savoring the views, or at the Hotel
bar down below on the beach. Best vacation in years, we did not want to
Our St. Barts Honeymoon? Grade A+ from this teacher!
The entire EXPERIENCE started way before our trip, since Jeff helped
us with every detail in advance. We loved discovering the Island and
returning home to this gorgeous Villa. When planning the next trip we
know exactly where we'll stay.
| "We'd been to the Island before, booked by an agent in a
place that was more expensive, but not nearly as comfortable as Flamands
Blue. The girls rode horses on a trail overlooking the bay and all we swam,
snorkeled, dined and spent the days about equally between lounging at the
beach & back the Villa. We promised to have this wonderful vacation

|"We thoroughly enjoyed our too short vacation in
another place Jeff arranged (unfortunately Flamands Blue was booked our
week) but his Manager took great care of us there. Here we are the first
night dining with harbor view where our table was waiting. We were shown
the villa (prettier in person) which we promptly reserved for next time."
Pichata & Henry - Arnold, MD
| "This villa (an excellent value) is kept in sterling
condition by the owner, and the Manager is a delight. Getting fresh baked
goods for breakfast, spending the day on one of the Island's beautiful beaches,
having lunch at a seaside restaurant and returning to the Villa for an afternoon
nap is this city dweller's idea of heaven on earth. We plan to visit Flamands
Blue again this year."
Tom and Amy - Chicago, Ill.
| "Our St. Barts trip was to celebrate the completion of John's
Ph.D. Both of us were able to relax and unwind. This one's my favorite -
snapped early one morning on the terrace. It's great to see him engrossed
in a NOVEL (instead of science) listening to the ocean over his morning
coffee. We hiked, snorkeled, and even rock climbed right from Flamands Blue---and
prepared some memorable meals on the outdoor grill. We're planning the same
2 weeks next year."
John and Julie - Seattle, WA
| "Beautiful place, with plenty of room for us.
Toured the entire Island, and found Flamands to be the very prettiest location.
We never tired of the beach or excellent dining. We've rented vacation homes
many times before, some high end and you almost EXPECT something not to
work -- not here. My brother in law was the first one up and back from the
French bakery in the morning. This wonderful family vacation in paradise
will always be remembered."
Mike, Deb and Family - Bedford, CT
| "We'd already picked St. Barts for our honeymoon and chose
Flamands Blue mainly because the owner's enthusiasm was contagious! It could
not have been better. The villa was immaculate and ALL the views (like the
ocean from the Master Suite) were much prettier than the website photos,
in the evening as well. We're glad we stayed here instead of a hotel (the
cost is about the same) because of the privacy and wonderful ambiance--from
stepping into the Jacuzzi out the shower door, to the scent of Jasmine in
the gardens after a rain. We'll definitely be back!"
Jerry and Kristen - Madison, NJ
| "After viewing the website and talking with the Owner we
agreed Flamands Blue was the ONLY place for our 30th - then scheduled around
the open dates. We were not surprised that the Villa was beautiful and impeccably
maintained, but a bonus was the attention of Jeff and his Manager to help
us better enjoy our trip. Here we are after a wonderful day on a catamaran
that was arranged for snorkeling, excellent food, and very nice people.
We wreck dived a few days later. St. Barts is full of great views but the
one from the Villa terrace beats them all!"
Linda and Mike - New Albany, IN.
| "We always talked about a St. Barts trip but this year we
put it all together. It does not get any better. The Villa was perfect for
the four of us and Jeff and his Manager really make their feel Guests special.
We loved the beaches along with the dining and can't wait to return to Flamands
Gina & David, Potomac, MD
Scott & Stephanie, Reston VA
| "Our friends ask, 'So how was St.Barts?' Our response---this
photo says it all. Simply, we could not have found a more beautiful or romantic
setting than "our" own private hillside villa. With those VIEWS,
happily, it was in our price range too! We loved every minute of our vacation
and took lots of great pictures to get us through until next time."
Dee and Bob - Washington, DC
