The Insiders Guide To St Barthélemy
Launched in October of 2002 by Bob & Kara Brooks SBHonline is a culmination of their longtime love affair with St Barts.
Like many others, spending a few weeks a year on the island just wasn’t enough. They wanted to commune with the island all year.
In creating www.sbhonline.com, and the St Barts discussion forums, they created a home away from home for St Barts devotees around the world.
In 2003, The Brooks wrote Paradise Found: The people, restaurants and recipes of St. Barthelemy. Paradise Found tells the stories of
eighteen of the most popular restaurants on St. Barts complete with recipes from each. The hardcover book contains over 140 color photos
and 18 dinner menus featuring over 70 St Barth’s recipes.
Their love of fine cuisine, with a French flavor, culminated in the opening of the
Still River Cafe in Eastford, Ct in 2006.
There they host fans of St Barts throughout the year, except for the 6 weeks they close each winter so they can escape the cold
and bask in the warm embrace of St Barts.
In 2008 the Brooks decided to sell the website so they could focus full-time on their restaurant. They chose to sell to
St Barts villa rental pioneer WIMCO,
West Indies Management Company who are committed to maintaining the forums as a vibrant, independent online community.
The SBHonline forums are now moderated by three long-time forum contributors – Tim, JEK, and Dennis.
These moderators do a fantastic job assisting site visitors and helping to maintain a spirit of friendly, independent dialog.
We all hope that you enjoy the website, the forums and your virtual vacation to St. Barts. The site is supported by advertising from
