Just came across this which may be of interest to some on here... Aqualodge Houseboats moored around Guadeloupe and Martinique. On Guadeloupe, the options include boats moored in Isles des Saintes which sounds wonderful to me. I don't know anything more about the company, just found the link while on Dream Yacht Charters site.

Those things are cool - and they have the best moorings in all of the Iles des Saintes. They are basically a little lodge on the water, with real "rooms". I've moored next to them in the past and thought that this would be an ideal rental. And since they are on the water you have breeze and no mozzies.

I thought they were a "drag"...anchor that is!(In joke).I think all our crew fell for the Saintes in that (too) short stay..Love this idea...

Great times in a great location Laura and Mal. Will never forget searching for Jeannius while dressed in garbage bags.

Nothing like waking up to find your anchor fouled in an abandoned, huge, anchor chain (at least we didn't drag any more during the night!) A few years later Kit and I stopped again in The Saintes and had lunch in that same restaurant where we all had that stormy dinner.

There is one of those chains in the bight near Pirates. Ask me how I know!
