Enjoy 2018 in St. Barts as the Caribbean Jewel Reopens to Guests

January 10, 2018 -

Bouncing back in typical St. Bart's fashion, this island and its amazing people have worked eagerly and tirelessly to make way for the grand reopening of their island in the wake of Hurricane Irma.

Repaired, restored and rejuvenated, the island once again opens her arms to travelers from all over the world, eager to wrap themselves in the splendor of St. Bart’s and partake in the shining jewel of the Caribbean.

The team at Private Villa Rentals is ready to welcome guests back to the Caribbean’s finest luxury travel destination just in time to kick off the 2018 villa season. To honor this joyous occasion, what better way than to showcase one of the most prestigious examples of St. Bart’s private villa rental properties that awaits: Villa Axel Rocks!

Villa Axel Rocks is nestled into the idyllic western-facing hillside of Gustavia, embracing the full beauty of St. Barts and the Caribbean beyond. Taking in the surroundings of Villa Axel Rocks, it feels as if the sea begins where the villa ends and the view - facing the open water - has several picturesque rock outcrops and is not to be missed. This chic and contemporary luxury private villa rental is sumptuously decorated in modern styling with white interior, accented by choice color pieces throughout, stainless steel appliances and an open-concept atmosphere that utilizes partition glass to stunning effect. Located close to beautiful Shell Beach and no more than five minutes from Gustavia, as well as restaurants, supermarkets and airport, Villa Axel Rocks is the best of both worlds – serenity and excitement!

Villa Axel Rocks

As guests enter the villa, the first thing that strikes the eye is the simple yet superb effect of the modern, open concept design and decoration, pulling the gaze to strategically wonderful pieces throughout the house all the while never distracting from the overwhelmingly beautiful natural view off the hillside.

The living room of Villa Axel Rocks is equipped with luxuriously cushy seating for ten, ocean view, air conditioning, television, dish network, and Sonos sound system is perfect for lounging in solitude, gathering as a group for cocktails and snacks or simply enjoying a glass of wine and a book with the view. The kitchen, fully equipped for ten people boasts every amenity one could desire in a luxury private villa, including air microwave, espresso machine, toaster, blender, dishwasher, cold room, bar, wine cellar AND conditioning for when things heat up, Caribbean style! Not even the most commanding family chef could look down their nose at the set up at Villa Axel Rocks.

The villa also boasts a billiards table and – the cornerstone of any luxury Caribbean private villa experience – a beautiful pool and pool deck, where guests can enjoy the most famous commodity of the Caribbean, the sun! Stretch out and soak up a tan, share cocktails with friends or steal a romantic dip in the pool while no one is looking – all are equally wonderful!

Villa Axel Rocks

Further, Villa Axel Rocks is home to four separate bedrooms, each as decadently stocked as the others. Most importantly for anyone traveling with a partner, each and every bedroom in the villa has a private terrace with a view overlooking the ocean. Facing west, as the villa does, an ideal suggested time to utilize these is in the evening, as the sun sinks into the Caribbean, casting shades of color that will leave anyone speechless. Further, each bedroom has a Queen sized bed, air conditioning, private safe, television, US satellite connectivity, bathroom and shower, Apple TV and mini fridge!

The pinnacle of St. Barts luxury private villas coupled with the chic modernity and open yet intimate concept of this location makes Villa Axel Rocks one of the most sought after locations on the island, and a wonderful place for anyone seeking a carefree and intimate escape from the world.
