Visit Guadeloupe and stay in a pretty 3 room apartment located in Le Gosier for 2-6 people. There is an unobstructed view of sea and mountain. It has 2 air-conditioned bedrooms in a gated community with pool and parking. The city of Gosier is in the centre of Guadeloupe, ideally located to visit stunning places such as: Carbet Falls, La Pointe des Châteaux, The Gates of Hell, Pointe de la Grande Vigie, the natural park, les réserves du commandant Cousteau, the volcano of La Grande Soufrière, Îles des Saintes, Marie-Galante, or Petite Terre; as well as uncountable different stunning places. In just a wink of an eye, you will have the option of going from lush forests where the sun light can barely pass through to a beautiful and sunny white sandy beach with crystal clear water. You will taste, in the many local restaurants, the Creole cook that will delight your taste buds: their Accras de Morue, Boudin Noir, Columbo de Cabri, or even the famous Chatrou (local name for the octopus). The city is ideally served on a daily basis by 4 national companies like Air France and Air Caraïbes; Guadeloupe will leave you a pleasant impression of joy of living, and you will wish to come back again soon to continue discovering it. Not to mention the carnival periods when everyday is sunny and the magnificent costume parades that punctuates the island at the height of winter metropolitan. You will enjoy so much from the colours and the music that you will desire to take part of the Ash Wednesday parades, a day of complete emotional release.
I always listen to my clients; I make every effort to ensure that holiday makers who stay in my apartment become truly friends and have but one desire: Come back to Guadeloupe.
Didier Henri purchased this apartment in 2005
The apartment was rented yearly during 8 years, and then in 2013 was completely renovated. Ideally located in Guadeloupe's centre; it is naturally perfect for holiday rentals. Located 5 min away from Dacha beach, in front to L'Îlet Gosier, it provides me the opportunity to meet and to take positive advantage of the stunning island that is Guadeloupe
The main lure of this apartment is its unobstructed view of the sea, the Île des Saintes, and Dominica which is visible if there's good weather; also the mountainous of Basse-Terre domain by the La Soufrière volcano's mountain range. What is more beautiful than waking up in front of that panorama...? The pool is the cherry on top for the days you don't want to go and swim on the beach.
Guadeloupe. We were looking specifically for a French Caribbean island where we could experience French immersion. Guadeloupe is perfect for that. We had plenty of opportunity to practice our largely-high-school-learned French with the nice and welcoming people there. Also, the islands' infrastructure is well developed for a Caribbean island. We felt comfortable and safe and familiar going around on our own.
Le Gosier. Le Gosier is centrally located to explore both Grande Terre and Basse Terre. Plenty of stores to fill the cupboard, two miles to a beautiful beach and about 10 minutes from the Marina where there are good restaurants.
The Apartment. The apartment has a great view of the harbor and the volcano. It is situated up a steep hill, right off the main road. Our tiny rental car could only make it up in first gear, but once we learned that, we were fine. The apartment itself is a fairly modern, two bedroom condo in a well-gated, safe compound, with lots of permanent residents (mostly French ex-pats). It is a perfect size for two adults and a teen. The small kitchen was great for us–with a 4-burner stove (and nice pans, knives and utensils) we cooked full meals. Two grocery stores are within a short drive.
M. Henri. The major reason to rent this apartment is the remarkable M. Henri himself. M. Henri is a gracious host who fixed some serious errors that we had made. For example, we had not reserved a car on the busiest week, and none were to be had. Using his contacts, M. Henri called in a few favors and found us one at a more than reasonable price--what a relief!
He bent over backwards to make address our needs. For example, we arrived on the island from Boston the day before the Superbowl. M. Henri on his own found and paid extra to get ESPN to enable us to see the game.
He showed us several non-American quirks that we just would not have known. He took me on a little tour--to the Marina, the beach, and the grocery store--to orient me. We had his phone number for emergencies, and he checked in with us twice to see that we were OK. Our vacation would have been a disaster with our ignorance and without M. Henri. It is hard to imagine a more gracious host. He is well educated, a physical specimen as a 50+ year old triathlete, an outstanding community leader with lots of ties. If this is your first visit, and you're a little nervous, do yourself a favor and put yourself in his kind hands.
Didier welcomed us kindly and the appartment looked spotless. The location is handy, the quartier friendly and the host flexible (as we were delayed): a perfect stay.
