Stayed: January 2013
We booked last minute for a work trip for my wife, and this villa was miraculously available due to a mix-up because their VRBO email had been hacked (MAKE SURE you are dealing with Andy in your correspondence!!), and what a blessing that turned out to be for us!
First of all, Andy could not have been more helpful and friendly. He personally guided me to the villa from the airport, no small chunk of time out of his day. He had wonderful recommendations for restaurants, beaches, and attractions. He was the perfect liaison between us and the owners, Joelle and Tony, since sadly we speak not a word of French. (Wait, 'liaison' is maybe French?) He generally went way above and beyond his duties to make sure every aspect of our stay was perfect. And it was.
Joelle and Tony, who are wonderful people themselves, have a truly beautiful, one-of-a-kind place. As others have mentioned, the pictures -while gorgeous- don't do it justice. You just can't fully appreciate it until you take in the panoramic view from the pool, or are looking at the beach from your shower (yes, the shower!). Upon arrival, lovely Joelle had stocked the fridge for us, and cheerfully showed me around the villa. She obviously takes great pride in it, and she should. It's dreamy and charming from top to bottom.
Highly recommend for couples. It feels secluded, yet you're just a five to ten minute drive from the best restaurants and beaches St. Martin has to offer. Can't wait to go back!
Owner's Response: Wow, what a great review guys. Thank you so much for your honesty. We definitely cannot wait to have you guys stay with us again in the hopefully near future. It was a pleasure having you! Take care, hope it's not too cold up there!
