    Searching for 60!

    I have a milestone birthday coming up in December.

    We are looking at St Barths and also Mustique.

    There are references to Mustique here but not much detail.

    Looking at The Cotton House.

    Any intel?

    Thanks!

    Big dilemma, Dennis! However, having celebrated 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th, 70th, & 80th (oh! wait a minute . . . I'm getting ahead of myself!) birthdays on SBH, I think the right answer is to do both! Mustique would be wonderful, I'm sure . . . though, I suspect, a bit "vanilla" compared to SBH. Even if it's not on THE birthday, I recommend planning time on St. Barths in celebration of this very special birthday. Meanwhile, I suspect that many of us would look forward to a report on Mustique (after all, if it was good enough for Princess Margaret and is a home to Mick Jagger, it must be very nice).

    You didn’t ask about it but you might consider the Queens Garden Resort in Saba. They are located in a great place offering wonderful views, a highly reviewed spa and a french restaurant on site. There is a rainforest and the island apparently offers good skin diving. Friends went recently and loved it saying it reminds them of the St. Barthelemy of old.

    Years ago on a Windstar cruise, we sailed on a 45' sailboat from Bequia over to Mustique for lunch @ Basil's followed by a taxi/truck tour of the island to see beach & Cotton House, then it was lovely, but hard to get to Mustique. Remote !

    Yes...decisions, decisions, right?

    I spent my 50th on St Barths and although my wife says "anywhere you want to go", I think she wants to check out Mustique. Who am I to cause problems, right?

    We're looking at both options, St Barths being the cheaper option which would make the old boat Cap't that used to live here happy.

    We shall see.

    Getting to Mustique is AUS-MIA-Barbados then a Cessna Caravan.
    Getting to St Barths is AUS-CLT-SXM then a Cessna Caravan.

    Thanks, Hop. Saba is not on my list at this time.

    Dennis,
    If the spouse want Mustique, you might as well book it today.

    I join the others in recommending Mustique.
    It's the best place to have a one time visit off of St. Barts.
