The villa agencies we use are St. Barth Properties, Wimco, Sibarth and Missimmo.

There is a tremendous variety of villas available. They range in size, amenities, location, and price. Over the years we have become familiar with many of the villas. If you need any advice feel free to contact us.

Wimco is offering attendees who book with them either a complimentary massage for one person, or a complimentary first night gourmet foods package from Mayas to Go.

The SBDA earns commissions from each hotel, villa and car reservation we make and these fees help to fund the cost of organizing the conference and keeping the registration fees low. If you reserve accommodations or a car rental directly; use a villa agency other than one of the four we recommend; or reserve through a travel agent other than Epic Experiences, you will be charged a $2100 event registration fee.
