Concierge.com's insider take:

The only thing better than being a tourist on St. Barths is being a local. Since there are few hotels on the island, about 80 percent of visitors to St. Barths rent a private villa and play house—renting a car, stocking up for the fridge at local French grocery stores (the cheese is to die for), and lying out topless by the pool. WIMCO, an international luxury villa rental company based in the United States, partners with Brook and Roger Lacour's Sibarth Real Estate, the largest rental agency on St. Barths. There are some 250 properties to choose from, ranging from the Japanese-style one-bedroom Villa Iku overlooking Marigot Bay to Villa Wik in Gustavia, which has six bedrooms and an infinity pool. High-season rates start at $1,600 per week for one-bedroom villas; two- and three-bedroom villas start at $2,500 and range up to $29,000. While Sibarth handles all on-island arrangements, reservations are made through WIMCO; WIMCO also provides concierge services and can arrange staff (nanny, private chef, etc.) for your villa. Housekeeping every other day is included in the rate.—Cathay Che
