St Barths Villas...most desirable location?

We've narrowed our choices down to 4 villas which are in 3 different areas of the island. Is one location better than the other? For instance, we want to be perched on the hillside for the ocean views. Colombier seems closer to the ocean and Vitet and Lurin seem more inland. Are the maps deceiving?
Colombier
Vitet
Lurin

We prefer the villas on Flamands beach. It is by far the nicest beach on the island, and there are some lovely villas with ocean views available.

You might want to post your question on www.sbhonline.com

That's a very active forum for St. Barth's lovers with literally hundreds and hundreds of post regarding rental villas on that island.

Your maps are correct. Colombier will be closer to water than Vitet or Lurin. But there are some great views from up high in Vitet.
Go to the villa website and check it out. They usually have pictures with the views. If they don't show the view, consider you do not have a great one.
Go to www.sbhonline.com for extensive villa reviews.

Thanks for everyone's input. I actually stumbled onto the Forum section of the sbhonline.com last night. I have the red eyes this morning to prove that I couldn't stop reading it...I became possessed!

After reading the many praises about Rosita (the owner) and Villa La Balleine, I booked it this morning. It was one of our final 3...and it looks fabulous and reasonably priced!
