My family and I rented Chalet Woodhaven for my wedding weekend. We wanted a house that was large enough for my family and bridesmaids. There were plenty of beds for everyone (20 people). When my mother and I found Chalet Woodhaven and started chatting with the homeowners, we knew this was the house for us. Kelley was very prompt in her replies, and attentive with anything (emailed her about parking) when we were at the property. She is forth-coming about the property and amenities.
We specifically liked that the downstairs was like a separate home... we used the downstairs for the bridesmaids, so we could have our dance parties and all sleep together in the "community" room. The downstairs also proved to be helpful for us when it was time to get ready. There was plenty of room for our makeup artist and personal stylist. Myself, along with the bridesmaids loved that we were able to relax in the hot tub, and enjoy everyone's fellowship.
The only challenging feature of the house, is the driveway. It's steep. Definitely helpful if you have four-wheel drive, otherwise you have to use the lowest gears your car will let you. However, we had about 20 people in the house and about 8 cars in the driveway, and we all fit.
If we are ever in the Black Mountain area, we would not hesitate to rent with Kelley again!
My niece had a dream…. Experience a destination wedding in an sunny, warn, exotic location….
In July 2014, that dream came true thanks to the help of a lot of people on the island of Sint Maarten but especially the owners and their staff.
My family along with several friends stayed at the Villa Vista for the entire week and hosted a wedding on our last full day on the island. The wedding could not have been more perfect.
The villa was simply amazing. The villa was surrounded by lush tropical landscaping. An unspoiled, quiet shore was close by as was fine restaurants and exciting water activities. Basically, the location of the villa was centrally located for everything we needed from beaches, to grocery stores, to Casinos, to restaurants, to sailing and to many tour companies. I cannot say enough about how the accommodations made us feel like we were on a magical island. From the well equipped kitchen, to the pool, to the furnishings, to the sound system, to the tiki hut on the veranda, to every detail that the owners provided to make sure our vacation would be perfect and that we would remember this family event forever. At the end of our family vacation, my niece and more family and friends arrived by cruise ship to have her destination dream wedding. Starting several months prior to the event, The owners worked with us to make this a fantastically unique experience at the Villa Vista. The wedding was held on the pool deck overlooking the coastline which provided the perfect turquoise backdrop. The support staff that work with the owners on a regular basis were essential to the success of this event. The villa was fantastic as a place to stay for a vacation and it was even more fantastic as a wedding venue.
Thank you for sharing your tropical paradise.
