The wide range of accommodations in St Barts comprises 70% luxury villas and 30% hotels. In contrast to most other Caribbean tourist destinations, St Barth has an extremely active rental market for private villas, cottages, and apartments.
The local authorities were smart and understood a long time ago that large-scale development was not in keeping with the size of the island, and seriously controlled the scale and style of building permits for hotels. As a result the island’s hotels are intimate, with a relaxed ambiance and natural elegance.
Prices range from moderate to extremely expensive, with a corresponding level of service, from good to excellent. From mid-December to mid-April, prices are considered “high-season,” and decrease considerably in “low season,” during the summer. However the prices go up and are the most expensive during the Christmas holiday season.
For the past several years, the St Barts villa rental market has continued to expand, with an inventory of almost 635 high-quality villas available for seasonal rental. They are finely appointed and designed to appeal to a clientele seeking a private, personalized vacation experience.

Small clusters of cottages, often family run, can have a very personal character. Very popular, these cottages fill an intermediate category between hotel and villa, yet always with a touch of St Barts style.
