Overview

Happy Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

It's all about the view...

It’s all about the view!

Friar’s Blue Villa is a newly renovated Villa located in the Happy Bay gated community. A few minutes walk from the last secluded beach of St-Martin.

The three bedroom and three bathroom villa has all the amenities needed for a Villa vacation in the Caribbean.

Upon entering the Villa from a private entryway, you arrive in the upper level of the house with a large American kitchen, living room all overlooking the stunning Friar’s Bay Beach. This Caribbean blue view serves as the impressive background to a large terrace with outdoor dining area, comfortable lounge seating and two modern lounge chairs.

The upper level also boasts a sunny room with an ensuite bathroom. The room opens trough a large glass door on the terrace overlooking this beach.

Down the stairs is the lower level featuring two bedrooms (with ensuite bathrooms), both connected to the Pool terrace with its dining area, lounge chairs and BBQ.

Friar’s Blue villa is also a perfect location for beach lovers. A three minute drive to the Friar’s Bay beach with its restaurants, it is also a 10 minute walk to Happy Bay, the last secluded Beach of the island. It is also a 10 minute drive to Grand-Case, the gourmet capital of the Caribbean with the best restaurants as well as the famous Mardi de Grand-Case during the season.

Friar’s Blue really has it all for Caribbean vacation goers. The incredible view, the closeness of all the entertainment you want and the seclusion of your private villa.

Reviewer Comments:

This was the 2nd year that six of us stayed at this villa for a 2-week period, and we likely plan on returning again in the future. The view over Friar's Bay is spectacular and fun to watch even at night, but the villa is just a short walk to our favorite and isolated Happy Bay, as well. The nice open kitchen allows for meal preparation as well as socializing space with fellow guests, and the two terraces (upper one shaded and lower one with sun and private pool) were a great plus. The perfect spot to enjoy sunsets. There were a few deferred maintenance items that need attention, and this was disappointing given the cost of renting this villa: There were no lights working on the upper terrace, and they all had to be rewired to get them functioning (this was actually taken care of for us); the microwave did not work and was never replaced during our stay although we notified the manager about this several times; the DVD player is a very old one and does not function, and we had planned on using this; the satellite TV remote did not work, so it was very difficult to operate; one of the bathroom sink faucets was very loose and required two hands to operate so this needs attention; the sliding glass door in one bedroom did not lock (so we had to use the hurricane shutters to secure the room) and several other light fixtures either did not work or had burned-out bulbs (including the pool light). We encourage a little bit of work to improve the maintenance on this property, as it is otherwise very spectacular at a fair price.

Improvement suggestions: upstairs bedroom replace the old noisy air conditioning system with a new, efficient split system that would be much quieter. (This was done in the other rooms but needs to be done here.) On the upper terrace, a privacy curtain on each side (like the neighbors have) would block out some adjoining parking. An indoor table and chairs would be nice, and there is ample room for it.

Reviewer Comments:

After many visits to St. Martin we were looking for something truly special and we found it. No. 5 exceeded our expectations in all regards. The location is perfect for a 10 minute walk to two of the nicest beaches on the island and is perfectly located between Marigot and Grande Case for dining and other activities. The view is perfect for the prettiest sunsets in the Caribbean. The maintenance and cleanliness were by far, the best we have seen in many trips to the islands. Amazingly, the three bedrooms/baths are all very nice and no one will feel slighted with their private outdoor access. Everything is perfectly set up for 6 guests - sofas, up and down dining, lounge chairs, cooking and serving dishes. Every appliance you might want and thoughtful details such as coffee filters, paper towels and almost everything you need to enjoy the comfort of the villa is provided. The only disappointment was that we couldn't extend our stay another week.

Reviewer Comments:

Although we have been renting villas in this area of Mt Choisy for several years, this was our first visit to Friars Bay Blue. Overall we enjoyed our stay. The villa was clean but there were several maintenance issues that the management company took care of ASAP. They were very responsive. When we arrived the sliding glass doors from the living room were off track and did not close; the oven did not work; the AC in the master bedroom did not work (the compressor was shot). All these items were taken care of. We used another bedroom and opted not to have the Master AC repaired while we were there. However the power went out for a short time at the end of our stay and the oven did not work again. One thing that they do not have control over is the roosters. They begin crowing at 3 or 4 in the morning and it is very difficult to get a restful sleep. This property is not as private as other places we have stayed in the same general area. Part of this was due to tree damage from hurricane Gonzalo.

Quiet Retreat, Great Views.

  • 5 of 5

Quiet retreat. Perfect for recharging the batteries. The private pool is bathed in sunshine throughout the day. Full kitchen and modern bathrooms in all bedrooms. Highly recommended if you need an escape from the world.
