    Thanks, but we live in KY. The nearby airports-Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Nashville-have had cutbacks for their CBP stations and do not currently offer walk in service.

    We recently applied for Global Entry status, and have been conditionally approved. All we need for GE now is a live interview. However, most of the sites which provide this are shut down, apparently...
  3. Re: There must be a great villa experience recently

    Pretty quiet. Nothing to obscure the fine view of Saba, Statia and Gustavia.

    Le Gros Ilets. Stayed there twice before.
  5. Re: There must be a great villa experience recently

    Had a great villa experience a few days ago. Rented a nice place up in Lurin for a week in January. Would like to stay longer, but that is basketball season

    Carl Gustaf renovation

    How is the repair and renovation of the Carl Gustaf proceeding? Will the noisy work be finished by January and 'the season'?
    Need to decide on a villa in Lurin within earshot of the hotel.

    Re: First trip to St Barts in July

    Do not "tackle" the island so much as embrace it. The feeling you get in return will be much the better.
