My family has a tradition of spending Thanksgiving in St. Barth and this year we were not sure what to expect arriving only 2.5 months after Hurricane Irma struck. Our first decision was where to stay and Cecile with Elan Immo, a partner of Frankie’s, helped us find just the right villa to suit our needs. Upon arrival, we were happily amazed at how much St. Barth had recovered. The island was vibrant and full of life, stores were open, and people were working hard to get the island repaired. We typically have a family and friends Thanksgiving party and this past year was no exception! Frankie helped us organize an amazing lunch for everyone as well as having our favorite local singers and band play for us and then conclude the evening with karaoke. This very special memory could not have happened with out Frankie. As always we were sad to leave the island and it’s beautiful people, but knowing that the St. Barth spirit is still alive and well makes us happy to plan our next return! Thank you for everything Frankie !!

F Connection have done a great job looking after us on our two week stay. We felt everything we needed was taken care of superbly, from meeting us at the airport to stocking up the villa and booking restaurants. Frankie seems to know everyone on St Barth and, as relative newcomers, that’s a great bonus for us. We look forward to returning and will definitely be using F Connection again. And if the wind allows, we may be more adventurous out on the water, which I’m sure F Connection would help with brilliantly.

FRANKIE NEVER FAILS ! Our first Thanksgiving in St Barth’s at wonderful Villa Vitti. Frankie handled everything from being re-routed from SXM to St Barth’s by boat to having a traditional turkey and pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving day. Frankie and his team are the most ethical, hardworking, well connected and friendly concierge team in the world.
Thank you Frankie!

Frankie was really engaged and focused to make sure our stay was enjoyable. He was always able to secure us great reservations and great seats wherever we went. In addition, we were greeted with warmth and kindness everywhere we went, clearly reflecting Frankie’s strong relationship with local restaurants and other venues
We were impressed with the great care and time Frankie took to make sure we knew our way around the island, the best places to go, and so forth. This greatly eased any stress we had associated with coming to an island we had not been to before.

Thank you so much for making our first trip to St Barths such a wonderful experience!
Your personal commitment to every detail was exceptional, and we will always remember how special you made us feel. F Connection took care of everything from arranging the amazing sunset sailing experience, securing the best tables at the most prime establishments, planning our amazing villa chef, engaging the best in-villa spa service we could imagine, to selecting fine wine and Champagne to enjoy daily! What a celebration for us!
It feels good to have made a new and trusted friend in St Barths!
Thank you for everything and we will be back soon!

Frankie was such a great help during our stay on St. Bart’s. He made sure we had everything we needed all the way from shopping in advance of our stay, to meeting us at the airport on arrival and departure to make sure things went smoothly. He also helped coordinate some really great experiences for us while on the island (SeaBob tour, massages, private chef, etc) and recommended the best beaches, restaurants and “must see” spots. Our trip was amazing, but we would never have been able to see the best spots as efficiently without his guidance and assistance along the way. Can’t wait to come back and will definitely seek Frankie’s guidance once again.”

Perfect vacation in paradise with our family! New to St Barts, Frankie's assistance in planning our vacation was invaluable!! His expert knowledge of the island and his engaging personality quickly made us feel at home! Frankie does it all from car rentals, restaurant reservations, activity arrangements, to pre-stocking our villa with food and beverage. His tender loving care while we were on the island insured that our vacation was fun, exciting, and hassle free! We are already dreaming of our next trip to St Barts, and Frankie will be our first contact once our dates are set.

Frankie : we cannot thank you enough for your generous hospitality! You are simply THE BEST!!
It would've taken endless hours of digging through the vast interweb and tedious travel guides to gain maybe half of the info that Frankie was able to provide us solely on the 15-minute drive to our villa from the airport! Not to mention, the time and money wasted lost in translation trying to reserve all our wants and needs. We literally spent five minutes while stateside writing to Frankie regarding preparations for our trip.
While in paradise, Frankie shared with us myriad tips and tricks that only a local would know (and even think of!), always got us the "best seat in the house" and never spared a minute when answering a query—all with the laid-back ease and sunny warmth of a great friend. We honestly wish we could have Frankie with us on every trip we take from now on!
Without a doubt, this was our favorite birthday trip thus far; it's going to be nearly impossible to top this one next year!!

Once again another perfect stay in paradise thanks to Frankie !
Frankie helped us with everything - securing villa, mini, reservations at restaurants, and lots of activities, such as surfing, scuba and Sea Bob, all of which will always be very special memories for our family. Even on last minute notice Frankie secured us a wonderful chef ! We can hardly wait to get back to St. Barts !!! Thank you for everything Frankie !!!

How special to learn upon arrival that our Villa greeter was Frankie, who we remember from years ago coming to St Barts. Frankie knows the island inside and out, so it is only natural that he provides the best Concierge services on the island. We are delighted to be reunited and look forward to seeing him again next year to help us with special plans during our stay.

"We highly recommend Frankie and his concierge service! Frankie took care of us and our two teenage boys on the craziest night of the year in St. Barth's - New Years Eve. His drivers were professional and attentive, and they made sure our 17-year old and 19-year old had a ride throughout the night until the wee hours of the morning. They even texted us to alert us when our boys were safe at home. Many thanks to Frankie and his team - you are a parent's dream!

F connection is the ultimate in concierge service. It offers everything you can imagine you may need while visiting the island of St. Barths in the most professional and efficient way. Over the many years of visiting the island Frankie of F Connection has helped us with an array of events, reservations, child care, private drivers, a private physician, private plane charters and offers a private helicopter charter – these are just a few things that come to mind instantly.
The first phone call that is made once the decision is made to visit St Barths,with no hesitation, is to F Connection. F Connection jumps in immediately helping with villa accommodations/hotel options, plane charters, car rentals, restaurant reservations, activity planning, child care needs and any and everything you can imagine. Once accommodations are decided upon grocery lists, wine selections and any special occasions being celebrated are discussed. We have explored both options of staying in a villa and hotel and the services provided by F Connection are as elaborate either way you may choose!
Frankie has helped us organize several events while visiting the island and we have also attended several parties he has orchestrated for friends. everything is taken care of in the most immaculate of manner. Every event has its own touch of spectacular - a feel of such complexity yet such an island feel of relaxed. We have celebrated several of our birthdays in St Barths with the help of Frankie. A brilliant 40th at our private villa with private chef, DJ, and full wait staff. A wonderful and intimate evening of fine food, wine and the closest of friends. On another birthday occasion we decided to plan our celebration at one of the hot spots on the island. This was a party of 60 plus, a menu of a whole roasted pig, whole baked mahi mahi, selection of sashimi, hot and cold appetizers, private DJ, champagne, rum punch, and any mixed drinks desired. There were sea bobs for the guests to enjoy as well. To our and everyone ‘s surprise and compliments of Frankie, he threw in a surprise fire show for the birthday boy! Again, perfection!
F Connection also helped us find the finest child care one could wish for. Available twenty four hours to a few hours a day these ladies were engaging and entertaining. From fishing, to tennis lessons, to equestrian horseback riding, to French lessons – or whatever your desires may be – these ladies are superb!
Being in St. Barths for two months, many excursions were planned for our family. A quick trip to Anguilla to swim with the Dolphins was a favorite. Frankie coordinated a private plane charter, hotel reservations, a private driver and acquired the tickets for the swim. This was awesome! Private day boat excursions, fishing trips - reef fishing for the kids and also deep sea fishing for the adults were organized. Upon request, these outings can be accompanied with a gourmet selections of sandwiches, wines and any sort of personal requests you may have. Gym memberships were also set up for us. Although we tried to plan ahead and make reservations for all of our events, dining, etc. . There were always changes and Frankie always handled them with ease and a smile.
F Connection not only made our stays in St. Barths seamless, but made memories we will have for a lifetime. We thank Frankie and F Connection for showing us this amazing island and experiencing it in a way we would not have without the gracious and superb concierge service provided by our friend Frankie of F Connection.

You found the perfect, FABULOUS villa, scheduled everything for us, let us know of fun local events, and dealt with all our changes with speed and cheer.

As frequent visitors to St Barths, we would highly recommend using F Connection by Frankie. This service is indispensable for setting up all reservations, whether for chartering a boat, finding the best restaurants, private yoga lessons, car services, he even accompanied our teenagers on a night out to make sure they would be safe. The fly-boarding activity he set up for us was the highlight of our trip and we never would have known about it without Frankie. If you really want to relax in St Barths, use F Connection - you won’t regret it!

Merci à Frankie pour sa gentillesse et sa réactivité ! Il nous a trouvé une superbe villa avec vue sur la mer en moins de 24h alors que tout était complet sur l'île pour la Bucket.

Grâce à lui nous avons passé quelques jours fabuleux et Saint Barth et cela nous a donné une grande envie de revenir plus longuement !

A chance meeting with Frankie on our first night in St. Barth’s changed what would have been an excellent vacation, into an unbelievable vacation. Frankie is your ticket to the best tables, at the best restaurants and clubs on the island. He knows where to go on what day, and handles the behind-the-scenes coordination so that you only need to show up ready to have a great time. From restaurants to clubs to villas to boats, Frankie is your connection. He does this all with style and class, not to mention a smile.

Frankie was absolutely amazing and delivered a level of service that surpassed all our
expectations. He could get anything we needed and would often personally
deliver it within an hour. He got us every reservation we wanted on extremely
short notice despite it being peak season. His recommendations were flawless.
He is friendly, fair, and easy to work with. Our only regret was that we couldn't take him back home with us !

His knowledge of all things St Barts from staffing to transportation and logistics in the end he was the perfect person. And real pro.

A true insiders guide to St. Barths,
my family and I would never have had such wonderful island experiences without Frankie!! Frankie helped us initially with drivers, car rentals, chef for our villa, and restaurant reservations. We
were so impressed with him that we decided to plan my husband’s 40th birthday on the island. During the birthday week, Frankie assisted us with dining reservations for our guests, secured a wonderful
a private party at our villa, aided in the charter of a yacht to do a day cruise with lunch around the island to all the fabulous beaches and then ended the week with a delicious beachside dinner, including dj, dancing, and fire spinning. On other trips, Frankie has helped us secure a babysitter, horseback riding and wonderful SCUBA diving adventures. Frankie assists us in all our
needs while we are on St. Barths and makes it all very easy so we can enjoy our time and relax. We can not say enough great things about Frankie! We love Frankie!!!

There is so much to say about F Connection.
The minute we contacted Frankie at the F Connection about our arrangements to St Barths he was there making everything easier and better.
From restaurant reservations, perfect table placement, drivers, yacht and private plane charters, private party arrangements at our villa or anywhere else on the island - chefs, waiters , bartenders and everything else you may want. - Frankie organized and completed everything thing for us. His selection of chefs and their culinary style are immense - there were all styles and tastes to suit our needs and likes. From the finest desserts, cheeses, wines and champagne he had it covered, effortlessly. The options are limitless - from the organization of a lovely party at Eden Rock to an amazing private beach party – lobster grill, dance floor, DJ and all the amenities.
For all of the wonderful things Frankie can coordinate for you, he makes it happen. While we were in St. Barths we attended several events and hosted a birthday party. We were truly impressed with all of Frankie's work.
If you can dream it and want to do it - F Connection in St. Barths can definitely make it happen.

We have known Frankie for many years. He can work magic ! One year we arrived in the height of the holiday season without a car or a villa to rent after an awful stay at another island. St Barths was booked as usual for the Christmas peak. Frankie showed us the only 2 villas in our price range left on the island and the last car to rent. We have contacted him every year since to help us out. We will always use the F connection as a reliable source of information and we highly recommend anyone who is traveling on St Barts to consult with Frankie. Our family members have used him for years and he is a well respected and well established member of the community.
Villa Vanille, Joe & Margie N. (VA, USA)
We would have no hesitation in
strongly recommending Frankie’s concierge service – F Connection – the truly
outstanding concierge service on the island.
Our family have been visiting the island every year for many years and during this time have built up a wonderful relationship with Frankie.
Our experience with Frankie has always been perfect – he is totally reliable, always available and goes out of his way to really sort out everything to the finest detail.
Frankie is the easiest person possible to communicate with and has a natural ability to deal with everything effortlessly in his own inimitable charming and friendly style.
We could not recommend Frankie and F Connection more highly.
