Renting just five rooms, Normand Viau and Louise Boucher—owners (since 1995) of this delightful inn high on the southern hillside overlooking the entrance to Marigot Bay—treat you as their personal guests (adults only). The million-dollar view of the bay, the sea, and the constant comings and goings of beautiful yachts is sensational from both the guest-room balconies and the pool. Cool sea breezes preclude the need for air-conditioning. You won't mind the absence of a TV either. Breakfast is prepared by Louise and served in the kitchen whenever you're ready. Walk down a hillside path, through thick jungle, to a small white-sand beach. And if you need a lift to the village, a short but very steep walk, Normand is happy to oblige.
