    Villa Les Acajous and Villa Suite Acajous Upgrades!

    I got word from the owner of Villa Les Acajous and Villa Suite Acajous, Marie-Claude Ledee, that all three of the Villa Acajous bathrooms have been renovated to include Italian showers and that the living room (with the killer view over St Jean) is now air conditioned! She also says that the pool of Villa Suite Acajous is now HEATED! Several of her clients who have experienced the upgrades are leaving her rave reviews.

    I know Marie-Claude has many friends and clients on this forum who will find this intel useful. If you've not yet stayed at either property, you're missing out!

    Congratulations on the upgrades, Marie-Claude!

    Italian shower? Andrea Bocelli sings to you?

    But, of course...

    Another name for an Italian shower is a "roll-in shower"; a shower with no curb or step between the shower and the bathroom floor.

    Thank you for the explanation. Does this create at all a risk of slipping on the bathroom floor?

    We love Marie-Claude. Anita and I stayed at Suite Acajous a few weeks after Irma. She is a sweet person and let us use her Red MINI Convertible. We had a wonderful time, the Heated pool is a welcomed addition. Thank you Missy for the updates. Villa Acajous received a new deck when we were there in October 2018. A/C in the living room will be SWEET!

    I liked watching from the deck the birds keeping busy at the pond.

    I do, too! I met her in 2002 when she was our taxi driver for a 'round the island' tour (on a sailing cruise day trip). I met her again and got to know her when I visited Phil and Amy during their stay at Acajous some years later. I've only stayed at Acajous once in 2017 with 3 gal pals and we made some amazing memories there! Suite Acajous was just recently finished and I recall thinking that I would LOVE to stay there one day. I, personally, never had issue with the non-air conditioned living room as the brisk cross breeze with all doors open was divine!

    That looks awesome. Thanks for posting. The 3 BR looks to be all on one level, correct? I may someday be on the lookout for a 3BR that could accommodate a not so very mobile older person (otherwise known as my Father). Would require a nice deck for him to sit out on for when everyone else goes to the beach and A/C in living space would be a bonus as well. This seems to check all of the boxes.

    Marie Claude is an especially lovely lady . . . we bought Villa CEC from her, & in all the intervening years, she continues to be helpful when some new issue (such as with the cistern) comes up.

    Cwater is right, Jim....and the deck and the amazing view it affords is AMAZING! In my opinion, you can't go wrong with Villa Acajous. I hope you (and your father) get to experience it soon.

    I was going to say something a bit more racy, but I remembered that Seņor Bocelli is a married man.

    I do. More often since Phyllis and Rosemond come to the forefront of my mind. This is not an easy island to travel to or to navigate for folks with disabilities. Good that people are becoming more aware and considerate,

    Anita and I made wonderful memories at your Suite Acajous. So nice now that the St. Jean pond is completed. We always walk the perimeter on the boardwalk every trip. You are a very kind person.

    As we have aged, I always check hotels for walk in showers or low step rise to get into, one floor villas. Pool entrance can be an issue too. No tubs especially in Europe, steps no longer my friends unfortunately. And give me a grab rail in that 'Italian' shower & railings along steps/stairs.

    A few photos from the pool area, such a peaceful retreat. We have so many wonderful memories of a great time we enjoyed Suite Acajous in November 2017

    We spent many happy trips there too. I loved watching the activity of the birds from that spot--the whole pond before there was a boardwalk-and also watching the planes
