About Goran Strokirk
We are Swedish but moved to Chicago many years ago. It did not take long until we realized that to survive the Chicago winters you needed a Caribbean vacation. To find St Barts, we kept sailing and exploring most of the Islands in the Lesser Antilles. After a long time in finding St Barts we kept returning and we never looked back. It is a beautiful place where you feel welcome which makes it a unique experience in the Caribbean.
Goran Strokirk purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Goran Strokirk chose St. Barthelemy
As we kept returning to St. Barts for it's beauty and serenity we started to look around for a more permanent place than a sailboat. Villa Skrutten is located on the North side of St. Barts at Pointe Milou, one of the more desirable areas on the Island. With breathtaking views, located in a residential area with beautifully manicured gardens and very close to Hotel Christopher with all it's amenities right by the Ocean.
What makes this Villa unique
Villa Skrutten was totally renovated with a small infinity pool, Italian designed gourmet kitchen and refurnished with B&B Italia and Eero Saarinen furniture. We added 2 more bed-rooms on the lower level, with a shared bathroom and a small living room, which allows us to bring more people (family & friends). Hotel Christopher is located less than 2 minutes walk from Villa Skrutten. The Hotel, located directly on the Ocean, has been newly renovated and refurnished and has a great restaurant, bar and spa.

Family Holiday in St Bart
Great location in Pointe Milou while being quiet area, you are close to everything in St-Bart whether you want to spend the day at the beach or enjoy the pool & terrace from the villa. Well equipped kitchen , nice living area with great views & nice bedroom with private bathroom. The 2 bedrooms downstairs share a smaller bathroom which was nice for our young adult sons. The villa is just behind Hotel Christophe and overlooks the bay. Good support from the manager Francois & Celia coming everyday for the cleaning. We took the ferry to get to the island and Francois was waiting for us to guide us to the villa. We have rented villas in the Carribean in the past and we would definitely come back in St Bart and Villa Skrutten. Property owner always provide timely response. Other reviews were mentioning mosquitoes which is common in the Caribbean based on our experience unless you have a more open area with less vegetation. Great stay!
Goran was very easy to communicate with and provides an excellent concierge for the property. The house is beautifully decorated and is very comfortable for a family. I would definitely rent again!!
Private with gorgeous view
This villa is lovely. The living space is beautiful and comfortable with a gorgeous view. It is extremely private, yet walking distance to Christopher Hotel. The property managers are very responsive and a pleasure to deal with.
Loved our vacation here at ST Barts. The villa is beautiful and well equipped. . I only gave the property 3 stars for cleanliness because of the mosquito problems. We had countless mosquitos in each private rooms , kitchen, and living space. Therefore requiring us several trips to the pharmacy. The villa is open living therefore requiring frequent spraying. When The property manager was contacted he said “we sprayed once before our arrival” Although we cannot prevent nature, the villa manager could have exercised additional precautions. Or additional spraying. Overall, we had a great time and st barts is a must visit! Positive side, we had daily cleaning service, fresh towels and clean sheets! Washer and dryer was a plus!
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Villa Skrutten! Unfortunately, although mosquitoes typically are not a major problem, they can be more difficult to completely remove after a big rain system (which was the case during your stay and therefore we sprayed a 2nd time on Thursday). We do try and take all measures by spraying before arrivals to make sure your visit truly is like paradise! Thank you for your stay and your feedback, we hope to see you again.
St Barts Still the Best
Perfect house for us
Will be back as often as possible!!!
Excellent villa and location!
This was our 9th trip to St. Barths, so we've stayed in many villas in various parts of the island. This was our favorite villa thus far. We found Point Milou's location much quieter, and the views were amazing. The villa was also perfect for us and very clean and nicely furnished.. Although in the tropics, we still enjoy watching movies and the living room was perfectly situated so multiple people could sit comfortably in the evenings to visit and relax. The view is also amazing from the living room. Kitchen was beautiful and nicely appointed as well and bedrooms were comfortable. Would highly recommend Villa Skrutten and everyone we worked with was professional and pleasant. Will definitely stay here again when we return to St. Barths.
Villa Skrutten is located on the North side of St. Barts at Pointe Milou, one of the most desirable areas on the Island. This is on the least windy side of the Island.

Christopher Hotel a 5 star hotel is located right by the Ocean and it is very close to Villa Skrutten with it's Restaurants, Bars, and Spa.
