Palm Beach Villa is a 5-bedroom residence villa on Lorient, St. Bart's, located right on the seafront of the beach of Lorient Bay, offering views of three islands, and St. Martin in the distance. The villa has views from any room in the house, including the bedrooms. It is the only villa to feature a deck on the seafront with deck chairs so guests can relax with the waves lapping the shore below. There is also access in to the water for good snorkeling or kayaking.
Guests love to dine-in and enjoy the kitchen outfitted for a gourmet cook. Four en-suite bedrooms are located in the main house and include two master (king) suites at either end; one connects to another (king) bedroom suitable for adults or children; this bedroom also connects to the living area as does the 4th (queen) bedroom. All have en-suite baths offering special features; the queen bedroom's bath has both a tub and shower. The 5th bedroom is housed in a private bungalow (10 feet from main house) ensconced in a garden setting. En-suite, it also features its own kitchenette, sitting area, and covered dining terrace. This bedroom offers a double four-poster bed.
The outdoor living areas are spacious and include a dining table that seats 12. A waterfront deck and private access to the beach add to the charm of the villa. Palm Beach Villa has two pools: a heated, infinity, mirror image and a shallow wading pool. What a great spot to sit and sip a Planter's Punch on a lazy afternoon. The sound of the waterfall provides a soothing soundtrack. There is also an air-conditioned mini-gym and a shady massage area just beyond the pool with an adjacent outdoor shower.

Palm Beach Villa, St. Barts reviewVisited: April 2013
The Palm Beach Villa was perfect for our group -- it was like having a hotel that was all our own. Every bedroom has a bathroom and the deck is the perfect place to gather as a group. The maid service came every day and lit candles at night (we felt so special). The villa itself was clean and extremely high quality (great architecture). It's also in a very peaceful and calm area -- just far enough from the loud busy streets of St. Jean.
The only small negative is that the beach is not accessible right in front of the villa, but just a short walk down the road for access. And the beach isn't as pristine as St. Jean or Flamands beach, but it's a beach none-the-less (more rocky and full of coral but good for surfing, running and looking at sea-life). The villa does have snorkeling access and boating access right off the front which is a big plus and lots of fun - so it made up for the beach being a tiny bit farther away. We still think it's one of the best villas on the island -- and we were so glad it wasn't up on a mountain (many other villas are very hard to get to -- with steep hills and frightening drives up vertical roads). This villa is easy to get to and close to lots of good restaurants (in St. Jean and just a 7 minute drive to Gustavia).
The little deck over the ocean is the perfect place to drink your coffee in the morning. And almost every bedroom gets an ocean view when you wake up -- you just can't beat it! The villa truly made the trip for everyone. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
