All we can say is WOW!

  • 5 of 5
What a spectacular villa.

From the moment we drove through the impressive entry gates and walked through the front door, we knew that we had arrived at some place special.

As we entered the front door, we were greeted by Heather & Aldrin with cool, scented towels, which were amazingly refreshing after our cross country journey to get there.

But then it got even better. Walking down the stairs (which are covered with a glass ceiling) and stepping in to the main salon, we were captivated by the sweeping sea view and the expansive outdoor terraces.

Although the pictures on-line are beautiful, they don't begin to compare to the reality of being there in person.

The villa is furnished with impecable taste. We have rented other villas in the past which were nice, but they did not have the same level of sophistication as Mille Fleurs. We were impressed with the furnishings in each of the bedrooms and the beautiful artwork everywhere.

We were told that the villa dates back to the late 80s. But with its French Colonial style and grand spaces, it feels like it has been there much longer. It looks and feels exactly like what you would expect a grand old Caribbean home to be like.

There were eight in our party and with all the various sitting areas around the pool, it was easy to find your own space to relax or read a book by yourself if you wanted.

Of course, our favorite place to be was in the infinity-edged pool watching the boats go by during the day and the amazing sunsets in the evening.

Watching the big cruise ships glide past the villa in the evening with their lights on was also a sight to behold.

We were pampered all week by Heather who does an amazing job maintaining the villa.

And Aldrin does a great job maintaining the gardens--which are extensive (the property is over two acres). He was very nice and we ejoyed talking gardening stories with him.

We had some wonderful meals at some great restaurants (Tropicana was our favorite), but to be honest, our favorite meals were the ones we prepared and enjoyed together at the villa. The dining table is outside under a covered roof and we enjoyed dining alfresco in the warm evening air.

The week went by much too quickly. And as we were saying our goodbyes to Heather & Aldrin, we wished that we could have had more time to enjoy Mille Fleurs and this wonderful island.

We're already thinking about our return.

Amazing property, very private. Immaculately clean and well maintained, the property is even more beautiful in person than in the photographs! The owners were extremely helpful with suggestions of where to visit and explore as well as recommendations for delicious dining experiences. We visited a different beach everyday and returned to the villa every evening for a relaxing swim in the pool while watching gorgeous sunsets. We would highly recommend this property to anyone planning to travel to St. Martin.

ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!!!
Everything was absolutely wonderful. The Villa is beautiful and spacious with the most beautifully appointed interiors and stunning patio. Every meal is a treat with a gorgeous view of the ocean, sail boats and leafy palms.
The Villa is the perfect picture of the listing description, even better with the Caribbean breezes and the smell of tropical flowers. Everything was sparkling clean and Heather was so friendly and sweet and so helpful with any requests. The eternity pool was a favorite spot to watch the sunsets and cool off.
Jack and Byron were great and ever ready to help with any advice for great restaurants and places to visit or if you have any requests. The restaurants they recommended were perfection with the best French and Dutch cuisine. We also had our daily visit to Serafina for fabulous french pastries. If you want to host a dinner party or private romantic dinner(they have a chef available) the setting couldn't be anymore perfect.
Our vacation here will be remembered fondly with plans to return!!!

Summer family vacation at Mille Fleurs

  • 5 of 5
Have you ever wished you could put yourself in that scene from "The Thomas Crown Affair" where they escape to that beautiful mountaintop villa? This is sort of like that but this place is larger and prettier inside and out! My wife and I took her parents and our 9- and 11-year-old children for a week in July and thoroughly enjoyed it. Precious time off well spent! My in-laws are in their 70s, healthy, and were able to navigate the grounds with ease.

Having lived in St. Maarten long ago for two years, I wanted to return and stay in this particular area of the island. This entire "Terres Basse" region is guard-gate protected, very secure, and very quiet. Additionally, this Villa has its own remote-controlled access gate within the gated community.

The owner is very kind, easy to communicate with, and prompt in every way. Through his prior experience, he picked an ideal location for his Villa based on characteristics such as wind and weather. He stays here himself frequently and is very willing to share advice on fine dining, day trips, and the like. He also provides a nice binder on site to look through for these and other excursions.

There are many thorough reviews below so I will only add that we have suffered no ill effects whatsoever from the chikungunya virus which is getting so much press these days. As a physician myself, part of me wants to contract it just so I can get it over with! But no such "luck" on this trip.

Thanks again for such a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Michael,

So glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Mille Fleurs-- and that you had a good time reconnecting with the island.

Happy to hear that the mosquitoes were not much of an issue at the villa. We do have the property sprayed every week before our guests arrive-- using an all natural, plant based product. It's very effective and does a very good job of keeping the mosquito population down to a minimum so our guests can enjoy their time outdoors at Mille Fleurs.

We hope to welcome you and your family back to Mille Fleurs for a future vacation.

Best,

Jack

The main concern when arriving at Mille Fleurs is that it wouldn't live up to all the pictures and videos that we had poured over for months before we arrived. However, all of those concerns melted away the minute we walked down the stairs into the gorgeous main room with an even more gorgeous view of the infinity pool overlooking the bay. From then on, we knew that we made the right choice to honeymoon at Mille Fleurs. The location simply can't be beat. The villa sits up on a hill in Terres Basses and overlooks Plum Bay which is within walking distance if you want to make a beach trip. We are mostly pool people but Plum Bay is a beautiful beach and the water is crystal blue and perfect for watching sunsets. We had the best of both worlds, however, as Milles Fleurs can't be beat in terms of pool lounging. We were exhausted after our wedding weekend and the pool area was the perfect place to recouperate.
Once we got out and about, we were amazed at how many great restaurants St Martin has to offer. We tended to stay on the French Side more than the Dutch for eating out and you literally could eat at a different great restaurant every night for several weeks. We loved Marigot and Grand Case the most but had great meals in Sandy Ground, which is very close by, as well.
For day trips, we we recommend Pinel Island which is a bit of a trek, but worth the trip,even though it rained on our trip there. We also loved Loterie Farms in the mountains which has a natural pool and a great restaurant for lunch,
More than anything, we just like being at the villa. Heather was there everyday and made us feel comfortable and at home from the very first minute we arrived. We also hired a chef for our breakfasts which I HIGHLY recommend and you really can't beat waking up to breakfast cooked by a French chef overlooking Plum Bay. Another huge plus for us was the interior of the villa which we both loved. The bedroom was totally plush as well, and air conditioned so you can get an escape from the heat if you need it (our trip was in June and it was HOT!).
All in all, we highly recommend Mille Fleurs and can't wait to share it with our friends on a trip sometime soon.

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had one of our best vacations ever staying in Mille Fleurs! From the moment you walk into this gorgeous home, you will feel special and that they have thought of your every need. Even the reservation details were personally handled by the owner, Jack. Heither, the housekeeper, is so personable and helped us with whatever we needed. The concierge service was available for questions and to book day trips. We had our four adult children with us celebrating a college graduation, and completion of a tough year in graduate schools for the others. None of us wanted to leave the incredible pool area, with the infinity pool and fabulous views of the ocean! What a place to feel pampered and relax, while having the privacy of just your family. We are still talking about our time there and can't wait to come back!
