The Villa HensonWhy this is one of the best...
The villa is approached by a long private drive and is very secluded. St Barts is a very safe island. The land below the villa and to the right (100 acres + !! ) is occupied by a few sheep - that's all! The villas to the left are well hidden. Parking is right by the villa.
One of our St Barts vacation clients said,
"This is our 2nd visit to Villa HENSON Only the heart, soul and spirit can know and express the beauty, serenity peace, love and joy felt and lived here! We've visited the island many times stayed at (list of villas!). While all are beautiful in their own right none are as beautiful, peaceful and private as this villa. "
Villa Henson is about 70 meters (200 ft) above the Caribbean sea and in the mornings you can sometimes see turtles swimming below. There are no other villas below Villa Henson.
We have probably one of the best views of any villa on the island. The view is due west so the sun sets virtually opposite between Saba and St Martin, depending on the time of year. On the horizon you can see (north to south) St. Martin, Saba, St. Eustache, St. Kitts and Nevis and the entrance to the port of Gustavia. I have even seen Montserrat further south!
The swiming poolnow heated, is perfectly placed on the terrace in front of the living room. It is 6 meters by 4 and 1.5 meters deep. The far side is edgeless giving the impression that the sky and the pool are one. On the near side is an underwater bench, just the right height for sitting in the cool water and having a cooling drink at the same time.
In addition there is a super 5 person Spa. It's heated, has 85 jets, a unique bubbling system that feels like you are sitting in a champagne bath and we love it! An idylic place to watch the sunsets that take place in front of the villa all year round.
A short film of the Villa and St BartsWith music!
This video shows the Villa Henson in Colombier St Barts. It also gives glimpses of the island.
The large airybut also air-conditioned, living room, with comfortable loungers and settees, is about 60 m² and comprises :
A fully fitted kitchen imported from France with blue granite work-tops
The Sunset Bar
A guest washroom
The music and video centre with a Media Hard disk and hundreds of films (English and French) plus tons of music.
Easy connection to it for your MP3 player, iPhone or computer with Apple TV, Bluetooth or direct.
US satellite TV DISHNETWORK with HBO (same in both bedrooms) Surround sound in the living room and terrace speakers outside
There are numerous books to read and a few games in the cupboards
There are two large fully opening doors that lead onto the pool area and one more opening onto the parking.
The large terrace has hammocks, teak tables and chairs with four very comfotable loungers. The terrace is covered in front of the lounge and bedrooms and hammocks are provided for that little siesta. Terrace speakers make it all perfect.
Then in a separate building are the two identical fully air-conditioned bedrooms both with lovely big shower rooms.
The first bedroom is a large double and the second bedroom can be two singles or a large double. Ask before you arrive what you want. Both bedrooms and the lounge are NON SMOKING but you can always have a puff on the terrace!
You have access to our high speed internet connection. It is configured as an open Wi-Fi. Or just plug in with the USB lead provided (CAT 5). There are only two villas nearby and neither is near enough to pick up the Wi-Fi.
There is a Weber gas barbecue for the occasion when spare ribs seem unavoidable. (There is a great recipe in the kitchen)
Behind the villa is a utility room that our housekeeper, Martha uses but if you need the washing machine or dryer etc. do not hesitate to ask. Please only use them when she is not needing them. We can also store a few of your personal items here such as beach chairs if you intend to return next year as many clients do. Bear in mind that the St Barts sea air corrodes metal very quickly. Below the terrace is the pool pump room with additional storage area if needed..

Pool and Terrace
The infinity pool overlooks the Caribbean sea. Our new loungers - more like comfy beds, almost make the bedrooms redundant! All we can say is the panoramic view from here is breathtaking.
Our spa has 85 jets that massage your neck, back and legs and a bubbling system that feels like you are sitting in a champagne bath. Facing the setting sun, the spa is the perfect place to relax after a long day at the beach before rolling out the Barbeque or dining out.
Webber Barbeque for dining under the stars.
And if all else fails just lie down in the hammock.
Nearly 700 sq feet of space with very comfortable settees and antique furniture. A media center with US Dish Network + HBO satellite TV, a hard disk with nearly 500 films and lots of music, Apple TV to connect your computer/iPod etc. and play your music on the terrace speakers! A luxury open plan kitchen with everything you need should you feel inclined.
