    Re: Les Islets In The News

    Same here, but we did stay a single night (pre-IRMA) before the villa was ready. Stayed in the beach cottage and the article captured our feelings exactly. Surprisingly quiet given the proximity to...

    Re: May visit 2019

    Hah!

    Going though the just finished trip and caught the reference. We're children of the LATE 70's, so Baker street is our connection to Gerry Rafferty. Stealers Wheel was middle school and a...

  4. Re: 1st time poster, frequent lurker - June trip questions

    Hello back from Houston. What part of Texas are you from? We just got back after two weeks, mostly on Flamands, but also four nights in Lorient.

    1) We were in Villa Bikini, just a bit west of...

    I can see that. We upgraded our seats and had the opportunity to hang out in the "global lounge" on the way back. Ugh! Other than free WiFi and wine/beer, nothing special. Kind of like the free...

    Did you spend the previous night in SJU? Given the ticket price difference, we almost did that.

    Thanks, although I think the pilots had more to do with the steadiness. Much smoother than the other propeller planes we've been on. Just booked the villa for next year, so hopefully we can make...

    Sunset Tradewind landing over the beach

    First time landing over the beach. Add in the sunset and the pass over the Saline area, which really shows how brown the island is, and I thought I'd share it. Would have done it earlier, but since I...

    or lack of.

    Noticed a lot of the Jimny's this year didn't appear to have ever had a spare on back, including ours. Wondered why. Cost savings? Rash of thefts in previous years?

    What am I?

    Had several "Where am I's" also taken at Maya's, but after the quick response on "Mr Fiona" (my personal favorite of the two), I figured they'd be too obvious. I was going through the pictures and...

    Got it, but did me one better as I didn't know there was a "Mr". Only Fiona. Was the cat originally Fiona until someone realized it was male? Maya told us the cat was transgender.

    No, but most of our visits have been spent on Flamands. Doesn't sound like you hang out by the south congress bridge much.

    Re: Colombier hike

    We did too and it was one of the highlights of the trip. Morning was still pretty sweaty though. Water is a must. Caution with a sunset visit is the hike back with less light.

    Re: First trip to St Barts in July

    I agree with Lil' Rock. Really enjoyed it. Felt like an upscale La Gloriette and without the chic-y vibe of the other two neighbors.
