It was the best vacation. The service from the concierge department was excellent.
We typically do snow/ski vacations but this year, the family voted the Caribbean. We decided on St. Martin because of the diversity of activities and the ease of airfare as well as the two countries on one island. That gave it a world/global feel. Once we found Luxury Retreats, we decided that this would seal the deal and indeed it did. They took care of us from beginning to end. The concierge service is extremely well done and takes so much stress out of the vacation. Everything they recommended was right on target!. The Villa was just like the picture-it was not embellished in the least. The local concierge and transportation people rounded out the package. This was the perfect getaway!
The house was just as the pictures showed and more -- the rooms were spacious, the lap pool was wonderful as well as the other pool. We enjoyed the ping-pong and the exercise machine. What made it really nice were the multiple seating areas.
As far as what was needed that was not there: This is a large house with a large kitchen, the utensils in the kitchen as well as pots and pans were very lacking. Also, since there was not a lot of wind, the mosquitoes were bad which made it uncomfortable during the day and the evening because all of the house is open-air. Also, the floors in the common areas got VERY SLICK when it rained (which it did quite a bit). I know there are some things that you cannot change, but I would restock the kitchen with cooking utensils as well as have on hand when guests arrive mosquito repellant as they may not have brought with them.
I was a recent guest at this fabulous villa in Oct 2013. It was a girlfriend trip consiting of 8 women. Normally, its hard to satisfy this many personalities at one time, however, I did niot have one complaint from these women regarding our accommadations. The place was clean and all the neccessities to run a home away from were on hand. The scenic view was absoulutely stunning from any area of the house. Our chef Emmanuel from Fabulous Feast was extremely nice and his food creations were a shear treat to the pallette. Special request were accounted for at every meal. My overall experience out of 5 is definitely a 5.
Monica Allard convinced us to rent this property rather than a few others our group originally had in mind. This was an excellent choice by Monica. We would not have found the marvelous villa without her help. She also recommended renting vehicles, which was definitely helped make our vacation more enjoyable. The villa was magnificent - far exceeding any pictures or reviews that we had seen. Plum Bay and Terres Basses were also exceptional. Our excursions on the Scoobitoo and the dinner cruise also went well. Eddie make two excellent recomendations for dinners at the Tropicana and Mario's Bistro. Everything we needed was easily within a short driving distance of the villa.
