Typically, St. Barts Villas require a minimum stay of 14 nights during the festive season, although a few owners might consider shorter stays based on travel dates and availability. Restaurants and beach clubs organize fantastic special events, including themed beach parties with live bands and dancing beneath the stars. Mega yachts illuminate the Gustavia Harbor, while beach bars host festive evenings. On New Year's Eve, the Harbor dazzles with a spectacular firework display, attracting celebrities and a diverse mix of people who dance under the stars to renowned bands or DJs.

Villas, car rentals, water sports, and restaurants are usually booked months in advance during this time, so we highly recommend making reservations as early as possible.

One of the most popular times to visit St. Barts is from early January to mid-April. Repeat guests often secure their bookings well in advance due to preferential repeat booking programs, and almost all beachfront villas are reserved early. Thanksgiving week is also considered part of the high season with many villas offering special rates during this period. The island hosts prestigious regattas such as the Saint Barths Bucket and Les Voiles de Saint-Barths, with vibrant beach parties throughout this period. Typically St. Barts Villas require a minimum stay of 7 nights during high season unless there is a gap between reservations. Beach clubs with weekly theme nights, evening restaurants, private chefs and activities fill up quickly during this period.

Low Season:

From mid-April to September and November to mid-December St. Barts experiences the low season.

This is a favored time for many visitors as the weather is wonderful and most areas remain open. The ocean waters are calm making it ideal for diving and boat excursions.
