Superb accommodation, comfortable, furnished with heart and taste, quiet and perfectly equipped with lots of little extras (parking, air conditioning, dishwasher, washing machine, associated products, vacuum cleaner for the car …). At the arrival, a small bottle of rum and “planteur” to give the smile. The swimming pool and the garden are really pleasant, especially in the evening, to enjoy a magnificent sunset with partial view on the sea. The accommodation is very well located, 2 minutes from the center of Deshaies by car. We can even go there on foot, but be careful on the way back, it climbs. Our hosts, Karine and Philippe live just next door, which is really very practical in case of need. For all that, they are really very discreet. Don’t hesitate to follow their advice for excursions, they are precious (special mention to Philippe – another Philippe 😊 – and his boat trip on the Cousteau reserve, from Deshaies). Thank you again for this wonderful stay to which you have very largely contributed.

A magnificent place, discreet and charming hosts who take great care of us …. So much so that we feel more like friends than customers. The annex, which is just like an independent villa, conforms to the description and is even better because we found a washing machine and a dishwasher …. The garden is exceptionally beautiful with a view of the port of Deshaies, in a calm that reminds us that we are not far from what is called paradise. I highly recommend the Coco-Cannelle villas and it is without hesitation that we will return. Not to mention that geographically, Deshaies is very well located for the many activities that our hosts are willing to book for us.

Arriving at the Coco Cannelle Villas is like arriving in a garden of Eden where Karine and Philippe welcome you in their different villas. For us, it was the 2 bedrooms villa, and  the Annex also equipped with 2 bedrooms, all very well equipped, they each have private pools which is very nice! The location is just ideal, we were able to visit the whole of Basse-terre at less than an hour’s drive from any destination. The welcome provided by Karine and Philippe is just fabulous, warm and everything that could follow… One of the best accommodations we have rented in Guadeloupe so far, for a sixth time staying more than a month each time it’s really a must. See you next time, which should be sooner than expected for us…

Perfect stay at Coco Cannelle Villas with friends (we were 8). The villa is very pleasant and equipped as it should be, we feel at home. Karine was very kind and made herself available whenever we needed it! The accommodation in Deshaies allowed us to tour the island without difficulty during the 12 days! We recommend 100% and in our wildest dreams, we will return to this address

Paradise with no deaths.

We had 23 wonderful nights at Coco Canelle in Deshaies. The villa was fabulous only bettered by the hospitality, friendship, and total commitment from Karine and Philippe to help us have a great holiday. They were GREAT. Thank you. The village had a wonderful Caribbean charm with many good/very good French, creole and even Thai style restaurants. Our hosts helped with recommendations and arranged “a special occasion lunch” at Habitation du Comté And transport there and back. Many beautiful beaches as well.

We had a truly exceptional stay at Villa Coco Cannelle. The property is beautiful, well decorated, and very conveniently located a short (although steep) walk or very short drive from the center of Deshaies. It was a perfect fit for our group of 4 adults and 3 children. We loved the open-air layout of the house, the refreshing pool, the harbor views, the beautiful and lush landscaping, and daily visits from local chickens. But what really made our first trip to Guadeloupe so special was Philippe and Karine’s warm hospitality. Philippe gave us stellar restaurant recommendations (and even made reservations on our behalf since we do not speak much French), connected us with a wonderful babysitter for a parents’ night out, and even connected us with a local doctor who came to the villa to do the COVID tests that were required for our return to the US. I could go on and on… We are so grateful, Philippe and Karine! The villa, location, and host all get our highest recommendation.

Wonderful and peaceful days

We live in Guadeloupe. When we are locals, the beach and the sun are not enough for us because we have access to it all year long. We found the comfort of our home but in “farniente” mode. It is in fact a cosy villa, spacious, without opposite, with all the comfort wished in a well thought garden. The villa is located above the village of Deshaies. In 5 minutes you are on the beach of Grande Anse, and in the town (in less time), you have access to small and exotic restaurants and other activities (gardens, walks…). Karine and Philippe are very pleasant, cultured, punctual for breakfasts. I would say that: ‘without watching us, they watched over us’. The communication with them is simple and without fuss. What is said is done and well done. It is very clean. The individualized pool is a real plus when the beach is inaccessible at certain times due to the confinement. 10 days really quiet and just for us. Thank you Karine and Philippe

We confirm what has been said in previous posts, namely that they are exceptional hosts. In addition to having given us an excellent welcome, they have accompanied us from the booking to the end of our stay. They know the archipelago and the Caribbean context very well and are very good advice for holiday activities. For example, we stayed in regular contact from our reservation in February 2020 until our arrival. They kept us regularly informed about covid-19 developments in Guadeloupe, among other topics. As far as accommodation is concerned, the Annex that we rented for 2 weeks is fully equipped with all the comforts. All the interior and exterior decoration and fittings have been thought out down to the last detail and in very good taste. The kitchen is fully equipped with more than what is necessary for a holiday rental. We are talking about a Premium rental… rare in Guadeloupe. We recommend +++.

We don’t even know where to start, so many superlatives and positive adjectives would be needed to describe these 9 nights spent at Karine’s Coco Cannelle Villas from August 3 to 12, 2020 in the big house for 8 people. We were 2 families so 4 adults and 4 children (between 4 and 8 years old). As soon as we booked in February we were informed of everything that was happening in Guadeloupe during the covid and Karine reassured us by her emails. The contact was regular for 6 months. When we arrived, we were welcomed in person and with a very complete booklet with lots of information about the good addresses. We were speechless when we visited the house. It was beyond our expectations. Incredibly beautiful, clean, practical, in short, nothing was missing! 4 air-conditioned bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 3 WCs, a kitchen and a magical outdoor terrace. A top-of-the-range and tastefully decorated exterior and interior layout ideally located in Deshaies. We travelled all over the Basse Terre from this unusual and atypical accommodation . We were in the middle of the trees like in the jungle. No opposite, no noise from the other houses of the Coco Cannelle villas, functional and very well thought out accommodation. Communication with the hosts was perfect, they listened to our questions and thanks to their good tips and kindness we spent a day at “l’ilet caret” with their contact Joseph who delighted us. Very nostalgic already for these 9 days, we had to leave the place for St François… Ps: washing machine, dishwasher and outdoor shower very practical.

The ideal stay.

We stayed three weeks in one of Karine and Philippe’s Villa. Everything was at the top! The Villa is very comfortable: everything is clean, new, well-equipped, nothing is missing… and Karine and Philippe are taking good care of everything. A question about a walk, a restaurant? We had the answer a few minutes later. The air-conditioning works well and it’s nice to have a good night’s sleep to gently get used to the climate of Guadeloupe. The Villa is located close to the heart of Deshaies: you can get there in less than 10 minutes on foot. Every morning we went to get our bread at the bakery of Deshaies (whose bread is excellent). We liked the view of the Gros Morne from the swimming pool. We enjoyed refreshing ourselves there in the evening, enjoying the scents of the flowers in the garden, while watching the sunset. In short, the service was largely up to our expectations. If you wish to take a holiday in this corner of paradise that is Deshaies, the Coco Cannelle Villas are a sure value.

The accommodation is very functional and tastefully furnished by Karine, an interior designer. The view over the bay of Deshaies allows you to fully enjoy, by the pool, magnificent sunsets. The downtown of the village, typical and peaceful, is accessible on foot and includes all the shops and restaurants necessary for your stay. A Leclerc Supermarket is also a few kilometers away. On the beach side, the superb beach of Grande Anse is one kilometer away from the rental property but you will also find several other beaches nearby for snorkelling. Concerning the visits, staying at Deshaies is ideal: the Cousteau reserve is close as well as the “Route de la Traversée”. You must also spend a day in the lagoon of Sainte Rose and if you have time, leave from the port of Deshaies to discover the cetaceans. Of course, don’t forget to go to the botanical garden. The access to the sites of Grande Terre is also easy if you leave for the day. The big plus of Coco Cannelle is the very warm welcome you get from Karine and Philippe. They will be able to give you the right advice and addresses to make your stay unforgettable. We’ll be back.

A little corner of Paradise

The Coco Cannelle villas are ideally located and set in the heart of lush nature. Karine and Philippe have created with accuracy and good taste functional houses, in the Creole spirit but irremediably ingrained in the contemporary world. A real feast for the eyes that immediately puts us in the atmosphere of a holiday that can only be announced well! We add that Karine and Philippe are always available when it comes to letting us benefit from their good addresses, whether they are culinary or otherwise. Thanks again to them for their welcome and bravo for their achievements!

We would like to thank Karine and Philipe from Coco Cannelle for the quality of their welcome and their sympathy. We found here a beautiful villa.

Karine and Philippe welcomed us in this small villa for 4 people with private pool in Deshaies in Guadeloupe. A villa built with great taste, very easy to use and well isolated from other villas. Karine and Philippe are very considerate people taking care of our every wish while remaining very discreet during our 3 weeks stay. The good weather was not always there, but this villa in the middle of a luxuriant nature and a refined garden (with the good care of Karine) allowed us to live this stay with a lot of pleasure.

In the beginning we thought it would be strange to have to go from the room to the bathroom going out to the terrace, but it is even pleasant. It is an open house concept that we loved.

Karines and Phillipe’s house has everything the vacationer’s heart desires. It was spotless, perfectly equipped with washing machine and dishwasher, kettle and coffee machine, a large fridge and freezer. The two bedrooms can be optimally regulated with air conditioning. The laundry dries on the leash behind the house in a few hours. The large pool is for single use and we had our complete privacy. For any question our hosts were always on the spot and extremely friendly. There was nothing to complain about! One of the most beautiful beaches is less than 1 km away by car. We went swimming there once or twice almost every day. The climb to the volcano Soufrière was one of the highlights of our trip. Deshaies is a very cute little place and has a “Spar” and another shop, a bakery, an ice cream parlor and many small bars and restaurants. This is definitely the most beautiful corner of Guadeloupe and we visited almost every corner and many beaches. Conclusion: fully recommended!

We have booked a great many rental houses and every one has, in some ways, failed to live up to the photographs or descriptions given. Not this one! We stayed in the three bed villa for two weeks and everything was either the same or better than we had expected. These are very well designed and constructed villas and, most importantly, they are owned and run by a charming, helpful husband and wife team who simply cannot do enough to make your stay complete. The position is also excellent as it is set back from the town allowing for partial views of the sea but still only 6-7 minutes walk down to the centre of Deshaies. We genuinely cannot fault this property.

We rented the Annex for a week from July 20 to 27, 2019 and we were 4 (2 adults and 2 teenagers). We can only recommend this rental. Everything is upscale and very well thought by Karine, the owner, interior designer, down to the smallest detail especially in terms of decoration. Deshaies is a beautiful little village in the north of Basse-Terre, much more authentic and pleasant than Le Gosier, Saint-Anne or Saint-François for those who like a change of scenery and a quiet holiday. Deshaies has many small beachfront restaurants offering good quality and cheap Creole food. The owners will be able to give you good advice on this subject. Deshaies is also a good starting point for beautiful excursions: the “Grand Cul de Sac Marin” in Sainte-Rose, the falls of Carbet or the Saintes Island.

We recommend this rental and will not hesitate to come back another year in one of Coco Cannelle Villas.

Absolutely successful holidays on a dream island, away from mass tourism, with nice hosts.

The breakfast from Phillipe was very good. Balanced breakfast, fresh local produce, ham, homemade delicious jam, yoghurt, baguette and croissants, coffee all lovingly served. The location of the villas is the best on the island. We drove a total of 1000km on the island, no region is more beautiful than Deshaies (Déhé). Although St. Anne has its charm, it is too touristy and artificial for us, the landscape is flat and less green. Near the property are the 2 best beaches on the island of “Grande Anse” and “Plage de La Perle”, the dream beach of “Death in Paradise” where the ninth season is being filmed. The film crew was seen in Deshaies almost every day. The villas are located on a lush green hillside. From time to time the chickens of the neighbor and 2-3 iguanas come to visit you. La Perle and Grande Anse beaches invite jogging and walking. In the middle of Grand Anse is also a lagoon, which can be explored by canoe. On both beaches you can really still alone on the beach. It is fantastic. We have been to Asia many times and have had enough of mass tourism and littered beaches, such as some in Thailand. In Guadeloupe, it does not exist. Definitely recommendable is the snorkeling and diving at the Jacques Cousteau Reserve, 30min. from the property. Very close to the accommodation, almost around the corner there is also the botanical garden, very nice, worth it. Furthermore, in 15min. reach the Rum Museum at Sainte Rose (worth seeing only because of the large private collection of giant insects) and the Cocoa Museum.

Absolutely Amazing

We absolutely had an amazing time at Karine & Philippe’s villa. The villa was so relaxing that we sometimes felt bad having to leave the villa for the beautiful beaches or nature of Guadeloupe #luxuryproblems. The villa and all the equipment are brand new. The fact that Karine has been an inside architecture clearly stands out looking at the design of the villa. They absolutely have given the whole house a great deal of thought. Besides this, the chosen equipment is all very luxurious. Normally with an Airbnb, the owners select the cheapest, less qualitative equipment. Karine & Philippe did the opposite. From a very broad range of cutlery, plates and glasses, to amazing devices such as a Nespresso coffee machine. Everything you need is there. As the icing on the cake, Karine & Philippe provide an outstanding service. They provided us with great tips of the activities and beautiful spots in the area. Without them we would never have founded things as the local brewery and the zip-lining track. These activities made our vacation even more unforgettable. On top of this, they are there for you at any time. If you have any questions or any issues, you know that it will be fixed immediately. At the same time, they respect your privacy. We highly recommend this villa and will definitely return. Thank you again for this wonderful time Karine & Philippe.

The most, the supply of the all the necessary for our daughter, baby chair, baby bed , tableware for children, toys … We took advantage of the private pool, a relaxation place, incomparable with a shared pool. Internet worked, which is not the case everywhere in the West Indies. Our hosts, Karine and Philippe, very welcoming, have done everything to ensure an excellent welcome, the villa was ready to receive us, a ti-punch for the arrival, and even some shopping for our first evening. Always  good tips for restaurants and tours. It is definitive, we found our address for our next stays in Guadeloupe. You will understand, we recommend this rental, do not hesitate.

We had a great time at the Coco Cannelle Villas, the services are excellent.

Karine and Philippe are charming and attentive hosts. The villa is very well placed, on the heights, and you will definitely findcalm and nature here. The sunny pool will seduce you. The small town of Deshaies is very nice. There are plenty of points of interest nearby.

We can only recommend you to stay at Coco Cannelle Villas.

Superb villa!

The house is very convenient for a large family / group of friends because there are several living areas (large dining table, terrace, garden furniture next to the pool, open kitchen …) and well-distributed rooms for a little more privacy. The accommodation is clean and well equipped.

Nice view of the sea and mountains. Karine and Philippe are very available for any question …

In short, to recommend!

Excellent stay in Deshaies

Very pleasant stay in the Coco Cannelle Villas. Karine and Philippe are attentive hosts who have given us a very warm welcome, “Planter” in support! The villa is tastefully decorated, impeccable cleanliness and the pool offers a magnificent view of Deshaies.

The place is peaceful and quiet, go with your eyes closed!

In Addition: private parking and excellent Wifi connection

We were already provided with helpful information before our vacation start by our hosts. On site there was  then enough food available to us to prepare a cozy dinner and a first breakfast. On a Sunday we did not have to find a supermarket that would be opened. The rooms were all super clean and decorated with attention to detail. We felt comfortable all around. We had the guesthouse with our two children inhabited. At no time did we feel disturbed or restricted by the presence of the hosts !! The location provides a good starting point to explore this part of the island. In addition, there are many great beaches in the immediate surrondings as“the Grande Anse”.

We definitely want to come back. Thank you Karine and Philippe for the great time !!

The apartment (The ANNEX) is very stylish and comfortably furnished. From the terrace you have a wonderful view of the bay of Deshaies. Everything was very clean, the technical equipment is great! Everything was there, what you need … from a Nespresso coffee machine, a small gas grill, washing machine, dishwasher.

The hosts are very nice and extremely helpful. The beautiful coves of “Grande Anse” and “Plage de la Perle” are only a few kilometers away.

We highly recommend the Coco Cannelle Villas!

Thank you very much for the wonderful holiday week, which we were able to spend in Deshaies!

A very nice surprise

We had a great time! The annex is just perfect; interior decoration … everything is thought with taste. You will find much more than a rental; Karine and Philippe are exceptional guests.

You can book with your eyes closed!! Not to mention the small town of Deshaies,which  is a gem of Guadeloupe!!

Beautiful and very rare on Guadeloupe

Exceptional stay in a beautifulsetting. We booked the 2 bedrooms villa for 8 days after spending several days on the Marina du Gosier. We were greeted by Philippe and Karine who were throughout our stay very attentive hosts with only one goal to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The villa is just perfect, very tastefully decorated by Karine who makes us share her passion for her profession of interior decorator, elegant and refined calls the villa, perfectly equipped nothing misses for our comfort. The private pool will allow you to relax after spending time discovering the beautiful bay of Deshaies and its surroundings or activities are not lacking. You will enjoy the most beautiful sunset of the island just beautiful. Karine also thought of a very comfortable hammock facing the pool. Our daughter particularly appreciated !!!! Many attentions, our guests also thought to provide the few food and other products necessary for those who arrive late or and  to mention the “Ti-punch” and “the planter” for  welcoming us. We will come back with immense pleasure. Guillaume Isabelle and Clara

We rented the Annex of the Coco Cannelle villas and we are more than happy.

Everything is beautiful. The environment is magic. The villa is furnished and decorated with great taste. The services offered are of high standard for a price more than reasonable. Everything is done to feel at home with a warm welcome by Karine and Philippe. We arrived late at night and we were able to make us eat and have breakfast thanks to the food provided. Without forgetting the planter and the Ti punch … We came as a  family and we also used the plancha to taste the local sausages and various fish while enjoying the sunset of Deshaies.

Just fabulous we will be back without any doubt.
