One Key, a unique alternative to traditional destination clubs, has added another property in St. Barth’s to its ever-expanding portfolio of luxury homes and villas around the world.

MANSFIELD, MA (January 7, 2008). Often called the jewel of the Caribbean, St. Barthélemy Island, or simply St. Barth’s, is the latest destination expansion for One Key. With a presence of three homes last year, the Travel Card company recently made the decision to expand its luxury home portfolio on the island due to increasing membership demand as well as the outstanding luxury service infrastructure found on the island.

“We have been fortunate to secure some of the island’s top level residences for our members. The majority of our homes are situated on the island’s volcanic hillsides, which afford them spectacular 180-degree ocean views, but remain close enough to Gustavia and St. Jean to provide easy access to restaurants and shopping,” said Joel Schoen, Senior Vice President of Acquisitions for One Key. When asked about the design and features of the luxury homes, he commented that “each home has unique features, and most boast unobstructed views of the ocean, comfortable yet luxurious island-motif interior designs, infinity edge pools, casual indoor/outdoor living areas, bungalow-style floor plans, and private master bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms.”

“St. Barth’s is one of the few Caribbean islands that has it all: beautiful beaches, high-end shopping, fine culinary experiences, and quality night life,” said Mr. Schoen. In a short walk or drive, One Key members can experience the charm and character of St. Jean and Gustavia Harbor, access any of the 22 beautiful beaches, browse the casually elegant boutiques of Gustavia, or choose to dine on cuisines from the traditional French, to Portuguese and even Japanese fare.

“It is a pleasure to have the flexibility to react so quickly to the increasing member demand for St. Barth’s,” said Jay Sapovits, CEO and Founder of One Key. He continued, “We now have access to 25 quality homes on the island that have been personally inspected by One Key representatives. With that kind of availability and home choice, as well as our pre-existing relationships with local vendors and service providers, I am confident that each One Key vacation to St. Barth’s will be an unforgettable experience.”

One Key is a fresh approach to luxury destination club membership. One Key offers discerning travelers the option of either 15, 25 or 45 nights that may be used in any increment to get away with family and friends in the finest homes in the world. One Key members receive the joys of second home ownership without the burden, and convenience of belonging to a destination club without the long term contract or high cost of entry.
