This tiny cottage colony tucked away in the far corner of beautiful St. Jean Bay is just secluded enough to earn the designation of a hideaway, but it’s close to the island’s most happening beach scene and the fashionable village of St. Jean. In short, you know you are in St. Barth. At Les Îlets de la Plage there are eleven bungalow-style villas in total and they include one, two and three bedroom options. Of these, four (all one-bedroom) are located directly on the beach, and seven are set back and nestled in a tropical garden setting that includes a pool and cabana. Guests here love the sense of community that the pool area affords and gather to sun and chat – and in the evening to enjoy cocktails. The cabana has satellite TV if you need to keep in touch with the outside world or catch the game. Additionally they offer the basic amenities – telephone, radio and CD player.
The villas are comfortably furnished in the traditional style, simple but elegant, and include the prerequisite whirling ceiling fans. The bedrooms are air-conditioned. Fully-equipped kitchenettes, spacious open-sided living areas, terraces furnished in teak: all add to your comfort level. And as a special treat you will awaken each morning to pastries delivered to your doorstep - croissants, baguettes, pain au chocolat - all fresh from the nearby boulangerie. Put the coffee on and enjoy.
At Les Îlets de la Plage you’ll find a casual vs. a chi-chi ambiance. You can spend a morning in your hammock reading, lunch on your terrace and then saunter to the beach – just a few steps away for a lazy afternoon. Your stay here can be as quiet and laid-back as you like, but all the trendy bistros and boutiques are close enough and beckon whenever the spirit moves you to “step-out.” You have the best of both worlds.

Who Would Just Love it Here
Honeymooners in those beachfront one-bedroom bungalows. Families would love the garden villas where children could split their time between beach and pool.
