Key West Bed and Breakfast @ 415 Williams Street is amazing!!!!!!! I have stayed there about 10 times over the years. The house is beautiful ~ very Caribbean décor and feel. It is in a great part of town. The people who work here at some of the nicest people I have ever met.
I found that the rental prices were less than I have had in the past, starting in November into December. As for renting a car, we are actually going to start our trip for the first 3 nights with out a car staying in Grand Case before we pick up a car for our next 3 weeks. Goal is to bring down our heart rate to "barely fog a mirror" levels to start the trip. Cheers!
So happy to hear this; we might actually keep up with you two for the three weeks that follow.....nah.....
I swim here in STT most days -- except for the earlier weeks when all the cruising// traveling boats inundated our local anchorages the waters are clear and corals have been very healthy and the grasses and turtles abundant.
There is the Cousteau marine park pn Guadalupe worth a stop. The Saintes are beautiful, you could spend 2 days there just enjoying the culture, food and beautiful beaches. My European friends say it's closer to a small French village than a Caribbean island. We usually spend 3 days on Dominica, but I haven't been there post hurricane. The river tour near Portsmith is fun. Trafalgar Falls is doable by bus from Roseau. We use Sea Cat for moorings and tours in the Roseau area. Victoria Falls is a nice hike as is boiling lake if you're in shape for the arduous hime.
I have done the covid test , 4 days to get result . Depending your departure day , this could be an issue . The provided documentation from the Health dept does not meet Sxm published Requirement . In fact the document which is printed online doesn’t even identify your name or what particular test was given . Lots of questions
We use to own timeshare at a smaller SXM property and was very happy with it. Got in a great price and used the heck out of it for a fair maintenance fee. Worked out about 40% less over the years than paying the normal hotel rates. It really comes down to history of the property and knowing who your doing business with. That Alegria location seems like its had lots of bad history for at least the last 20 years. Never been even appealing to me, no beach really and to big. Its what you make of it..... Different people can have much different experiences .
Sounds like a fun trip. On Guadeloupe make sure you get to Deshaies. Really lovely place with, when I was there, a great atmosphere. Setting for the vast majority of the BBC TV series 'Death in Paradise'. I went to Marie Galante once and didn't see a reason to go back. I may have missed something so if someone else says it's great then go for it.
