    Family Villa in St Jean

    We are finally returning to SBH next summer and this time will bring our kids. We have stayed in St Jean (Villa Azu) and LOVED the view of Eden Rock and the airport. This time we were looking at Villa la Maison (WV MAI) but the agency told me there is a construction site right below (?) the villa and they don't know when it will be finished. Does anyone have any details on that? Or other suggestions for villas with 3br, killer views and a nice pool in the range of max $8k/week in the summer?

    Hi Anne! We’ve stayed in villa Suite Maison in the past. The views are stellar with beautiful sunsets, and watching the planes take off and land is always fun. The villa is very nice, but only the bedrooms have A/C, which is fairly common. You do get some traffic noise from the main road from St Jean to Lorient below, but not unbearable. Somewhere in this villa forum is a picture of the exact crane sitting in front of the villa in question…I’m certain I’ve seen it. I will try to locate it for you. The ack ack noises can be annoying, IMO, and would probably be a deal breaker for me. Everyone is different though. Have fun villa shopping!

    The noise from the new Hotel L’Etoile construction should be going on for a while.

    Thanks Gayle! That’s very helpful. Maybe we should stay clear of St Jean next summer just to be safe…

    I checked out the Villa La Maison online and back on our first visit, we actually stayed at the former villa (AUM) that is now the construction site you reference. The two are, or rather were, a stones throw. We drove up to it post Irma (so sad) and then this past May. Here's a picture we took just over four months ago. I can't imagine it will be substantially finished. The views were great, the road noise not too bad, but the access to the main road wasn't much fun - Line of sight and traffic.

    Villa Maison is just behind the larger trees (to the immediate left of the pole) in the picture.

    Wow, this is super helpful, thank you! I agree the state of this plot does not look like it will be finished anytime soon and if the shortage of materials and labor in SBH is anywhere near as bad as in mainland Europe, it will probably be 2023 before this is finished. We'll look for something else for next summer and keep an eye out for the construction site - it's still our favorite view!
