AWESOME EXPERIENCE!!

  • 5 of 5
Our trip to St. Martin Villa Steel Magnolia was a graduation trip for our granddaughter. We had 11 family members that made the trip to celebrate this big accomplishment in her life. The villa was in a great location, accommodations were exceptional with the 6 bedrooms. Each bedroom was very spacious and each had its own bathroom which is very important. Even though St. Martin had several outstanding beaches having a pool at the villa was a very nice touch! The groundskeeper was there each day to manage the day to day business of the villa. He did an exceptional job as well as the housekeeper and the villa chef who cooked an awesome meal for us the first night we arrived and then again on our last night at the villa. I can say that we all are honored to call these three special people friends! We would go back in a heart beat!!

THE BEST VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5
This was a beautiful villa. I like some others was worried that there must be something wrong because the price is so reasonable but believe me it is just a great deal. It is like a 1min walk to the beach but the pool is so great I tended to just hang out by it a lot. The owner was wonderful and was able to send someone over very quickly when our TV in the bedroom got disconnected. The view is amazing the property is well manicured and there was so much room we switched bedrooms twice just for fun. We will be coming back! I just hope it is still available for my vacation next year!

The house and pool were fantastic...clean, great location, spacious bedrooms, bathrooms, etc...kitchen a little small but we had 11 people 1st week and 9 the second week...The outside grill area, however, more than made up for it...very large covered space which is where we ended up making most of our dinners when we weren't dining out. Great restaurants close...house staff wonderful and friendly. The only reason my rating was good and not excellent was low water pressure in the detached master bedroom, which they identified the problem and were fixing. The main house had no problems...we loved it overall and will return next year!!!!!!

A beautiful house with a wonderful view and about 15 min from the airport. The property was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The owner responded quickly to our questions. We would definitely recommend this property. It is very spacious and perfect for large groups.

ELEGANT BUT COMFORTABLE HOME

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from vacation. It was a trip with my husband, one sister, two brothers and spouses. We had enough room that we could have easily brought another couple. Everyone had a beautiful bedroom with their own bathroom and two of the bedrooms were master suites with one of them being in a separate guest house. The pool was large and the grounds were pretty with beautiful views. If I return to St. Maarten with a group I would definitely stay here again. The staff was great and the owner was very quick in replying to our emails.

VILLA STEEL MAGNOLIAS + VACATION = FABULOUS

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a fabulous, one week family vacation--14 of us, 8 adults and 6 children aged from 9 mos to 11 years. Villa is just as described and we were instantly pleased at what we saw: a large living-dining area, very suitable kitchen, 3 pool side large bedrooms, 1 non-pool side large bedroom, and a separate upper level large bedroom suite in an attached building, plus a separate TV-game room (which we used as another bedroom). All of us, but especially the kids loved the pool. The ocean beach (Baie Rouge) was just behind the Villa with about a 3-5 minute walk, and large bay was in front of the Villa with a great water view. Baie Rouge was never crowded and was the prettiest of the beaches we visited with really fun wave action. There are rocky areas, but also sandy approaches, excellent for adults, challenging for young children.

The Villa is very well and amply appointed: plenty of very nice furniture, dining table that easily seats 8, large bedrooms with bathrooms/showers, security system, two double fridge/freezers, kitchen well supplied with needed pots, glassware, dishes, utensils, etc., and some leftover cooking supplies from prior guests. Also, wi-fi, sound system with pool area speakers, large TV’s, and more. We ate more than 1/2 of our meals at the Villa, with the balance at beaches and restaurants. We treated the property with the respect we we would show our own homes.

Villa Steel Magnolias is very close to Princess Julianna airport and about 10 minutes from Marigot. It fronts just off the major road between the airport and Marigot, so easy access for sight seeing travel. While Baie Rouge is a public beach, it is gated at the main road and closed at night. The Villa has a separate security gate and a security system. Housekeepers Jonas and Jetta, his wife, provided services which mimic our own housekeeping: adequately clean, even with our large group, and almost invisible in their work. We amply tipped them for their services, as well as tipped Marlon, property manager. Based on its size, location, and quality of the Villa, I would say the Villa is moderately priced within the range of prices a person would find on St. Martin for a similar villa.

Was everything perfect? -- close. Local phone service was out for a couple of days, area electric power was out briefly one night, kitchen could use some better no-stick fry pans, bedrooms opening to the pool could use screens to bring the fresh ocean air in without any thought of bugs.
