Can you recommend a 2 Bedroom Villa in St. Barths? Any to avoid?

Four of us (two couples) are going to St. Barths (St. Barts?) in November. I've looked on several websites...searching through the many 2 bedroom villas for rent. Can anyone recommend the "perfect" one? Are there any to avoid? The pictures all look beautiful...but sometimes pictures can be deceiving (from prior experience).

Also...the same villa can be listed on different websites for different amounts!?!

We had a really bad experience with St Barths properties. The agent we worked with did not know a lot about the villa we rented and was NO help in directing us the right way. Be careful of who you work with. Rent a hillside villa as many of those are nicer than those closer to the beach. GL

Oh...thank you! Right now I've been dealing with French Caribbean International. They seem very knowledgable and helpful. I've also been checking on those that are rented directly by the owners.

We rented Villa Santal through French Caribbean International and were very happy with it. The bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house, which is good for your privacy. There is a small pool and hot tub with a fantastic view over Lorient and the sea. Reasonably priced as well.
