My husband and I had the most amazing family vacation at La Perla. The house is designed so each family has their separate sleeping quarters. My husband and I stayed in what was called Madame Gucci's private quarters. Private deck, gorgeous ocean view with a glorious morning sunrise. It's a wonderful family setup for families with little ones.
The location is unbeatable with crazy views of St. Barts and beautiful harbour views off to the left. Definitely don't miss a day trip over to St. Barts!
Nicely and newly decorated, with a designers eye to detail, includes all the high tech amenities, so easy for large family entertaining. Although, my husband and I have rented just the main house for the two of us and had one of the most scrumptiously romantic weeks ever!
Walk down your private steps to your own silky white sand beach. Also just a short walk down the beach to a great restaurant, surburb breakfasts and the Carribean Lobster or the Spaghetti Bolognaise is a definite must have with a little Rum Punch for dinner. Then it's a nice stroll back to the villa for an after dinner drink in the gorgeous infinity pool with the warm breezes and island lights of
St. Barts off in the distance, so romantic!
Staying at La Perla is definitely like taking a page from Life of the Rich and Famous, with the old world style that only The Gucci family could provide.

We prefer Dawns beach side of the island

Nice of you to ask us how we enjoyed our vacation on St. Martin, so we're happy to report it was a great stay.

In years past we usually stayed in the high rises near the airport, but that place is now looking like Miami Beach and is too crowded and noisy.

We always liked Dawns beach for a day trip so this time we decided to stay there and found your house listed on Homeaway.

Dawns beach is quiet, the people very friendly and that little beach bar Ms. Busby's got a workout from us, sometimes at breakfast, often at lunch, every day at happy hour and one night for dinner. At night they put tableclothes and move the tables onto the beach which is very romantic with little lanterns for lighting.

Your house has a magnificent location and walking down those few stairs to go swimming in the ocean you get very spoiled.

The kitchen is pretty small but equipped well enough so we used the gas grille on the patio most nights.

One night we had a caterer come you had recommended and they did a great job.

One bedroom had an issue with the air conditioning but we called your caretaker who came over and fiddled with it until it started working.

the ocean breezes were pretty good so we probably didn't need the A/C

Appreciate the brand new sheets your cleaning lady brought over along with a bunch of oversized towels.

Yes, our vacation was restful and everything we wanted it to be so while we've been to other Caribbean islands, I think St. Maarten has more to do and more to offer than the Virgin Islands

For people who've never been to SXM, staying near the airport may seem convenient but the hustle and bustle destroys the slow pace of Caribbean living. We now prefer the Oyster Cove section of Dawns beach so your house is certainly well sited.

Many thanks for the enjoyable stay at your lovely home.

Please keep us on your mailing list as we may be able to take advantage of a cancellation special on short notice.

Great spot on the beach

  • Submitted: Jan 2, 2014

Hi John, You asked me to write a review of our stay so I'm happy to say we enjoyed the house and island of SXM immensely.

The highlights of course is the fact that we're right on the beach at your house and the stairs were easy to navigate as they were not steep. It's only about 60-70 feet from the pool deck to Dawns Beach where the waves are generally pretty gentle and there's no undertow at all.

The pool got a lot of usage as well and though we stayed a few years ago in another house on Dawn beach that only had a dipping pool, having a larger pool where you can swim laps is very nice.

The house furniture you recently purchased is just OK but I understand you pointed out in your information packet that wet bathing suits destroyed the former leather furniture.

Computer was nice with the Magic jack for free calls. Wifi coverage was a bit spotty throughout the house but worked well on the patio where we parked ourselves much of the time.

I must say the views are just as you said they were, and the ocean views are panoramic from every one of the 6 bedrooms.

We enjoyed the food on the island, eating in one night and then going out for dinner the next. Captain Oliver's which is very close to your house was quite good though it's technically on the french side it was more American in menu style but the seafoods and salads were excellent so we went there twice.

Another night we went to one of the many fine French restaurants in Marigot though I forget the name, it was excellent.

You say there's 37 beaches on the island and we probably visited most of them. After Dawns beach, we liked orient beach the best though if nudity bothers you, then the french side beaches might not be to your liking.

The girls did lots of shopping on both the Dutch and French sides, often bargaining and some high fashion clothing on the French side they enjoyed.

The new airport is easy to get into and out of so we rented a car right there for a bargain price of just $ 400 for the week for a suv type of vehicle.

All in all a great and relaxing vacation and we'd like to return to your house and the island in the spring when rates drop again.

We had a total of 10 guests to split the cost so it was quite affordable.

Best regards, Tom and Lucy

enjoying our stay

hi Carrie,

I'm writing this on your computer here, and wow is it hot here today. I'm in the bedroom with the A/C on so it's not bad, but the ocean breezes seem to cut down the humidity so Jim and I are going for a long walk along the beach, then hanging by the pool.

We love the house and location. We did have a problem with the refrigerator so Alvo had the repair guy come and fill it with coolant so thankfully we have cold drinks and ice again. He's very helpful by the way. And his wife did a nice job cleaning the house since we arrived early.

The house is nice and spacious so we've eaten outside on the patio every night and you're right about the ocean views. They are panoramic and beautiful. The island is a great place, people friendly, many beaches we've explored and tomorrow we're following your guide word file and going on a snorkeling boat trip with free cocktails of course. This has been a bargain vacation since your fall rates are so much less than other times of the year so we think we'll make November a regular time to take a week off. Cheap airfare this time of year also and we were able to get a direct flight so we were on dawns beach by noon. Thanks again for sharing your lovely home with us and please post these comments on your website.

Sincerely, Susan R.

Just an amazing location and terrific beach-front

  • Submitted: Oct 4, 2013

Inside this big 6 BR house is nothing super luxurious though the caretaker did inform us we were sleeping on sheets he just bought which were nice and silky, along with big new fluffy towels which we took to Dawns beach, just a few steps away from the pool as they say. And what a beautiful beach that is. One of the very best in the Caribbbean and we've been to many island.

the house is well equipped though the kitchen is small but very functional though we did much of the cooking outdoors on the new gas grille which worked very well.

You want to rent this house for the amazing views, sleeping of up to 14 people even though we were only a party of 4 we paid much less as your fee is determined by the number of guests so it is a bargain for a small group like ours. We only used two of the master Bedrooms as the house actually has 4 masters.

The views are everywhere as advertised on their website, with 180 degrees from the patio where you could hold a huge function if you wanted to. The lounge chairs were comfortable, the house very clean though a few more outdoor umbrellas would have been nice (the caretaker said they often blow away in storms as it can get pretty windy being right on the ocean).

Each bedroom also has excellent ocean views, and 2 of them have a private patio and most bedrooms have their own bathroom which is very convenient.

The Westin hotel is a short walk away if you want their amenities though at $ 8 per beer, no thanks.

A better bet is to walk on the beach to the left of the house and visit Ms. Busby's beach bar where you'll meet some interesting characters and they serve 3 meals a day. They go gourmet at night with tablecloths and it's very impressive food, especially the lobsters. it's bunk that Caribbean lobsters don't taste as good as cold water ones up north. One night we went to Grand Case a 20 minute drive for an outstanding French meal with reasonably priced French wines (which is amazing to get a good wine for 35 bucks)

We had a wonderful relaxing vacation, and this location simply cannot be topped anywhere on the island. The interior is a bit worn in some places but who cares as you'll spend your time outdoors on the patio, reading your Ipad as they have wi-fi, relaxing, and swimming in the generous sized pool which was sparkling clean as the guys came twice that week to add chemicals and didn't notice our wives laying their topless. I guess they're used to nudity on SXM !

This is a large ocean-front house right on Dawns Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. we're right on the border of the Dutch-French line. Views from our huge patio over-looking the ocean are spectacular, over sized swimming pool and views of the ocean from every room. just a few steps down to Dawn Beach. we're right about in the middle of Dawns beach set up atop some rocks for incredible views.
