STUNNING OCEANFRONT 1 OR 2 BR VILLA W PRIVATE POOL, SIMPSON BAY/PELICAN KEY AREA

Simpson Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 BR, 2.5 Bath, Spectacular Views Of Caribbean Sea (Sleeps up to 4)

Villa Velaire is your home away from home, only better! Be sure to check out our website at www.VillaVelaireStMaarten.com for more information.

Perched along the ocean cliffs just above Simpson Bay in Pelican Key, St Maarten, stands Villa Velaire - a private two bedroom/2.5 bath rental villa. The Villa, recently renovated and completely redecorated in September of 2013, uses an eclectic mix of British West Indies and Balinese design to harmonize with both the Caribbean style architecture and the tropical location.

Just inside the entry at Villa Velaire, off to the right is the fully equipped gourmet kitchen featuring granite countertops. Should you choose to stay in and prepare breakfast, an afternoon cocktail or dinner - it won't be such a chore, as you will find all the comforts of home - a full size refrigerator, four- burner range/stove, dishwasher, blender, sauté pans etc.

Just past the kitchen stands the open floor living and dining area, the heart of this villa. Casual fabrics were used for a more relaxed feel, focusing on quality and comfort. The porcelain floor tiles in the living area were dressed with a fun nautical designed rug. Many of the furnishing in both the living and dining area were brought in from Bali with added wicker accents to define the transitional style.

Just beyond the living and dining room stands a 10 foot deep covered outside terrace. The covered terrace serves as a sitting and dining space, perfect for a respite from the afternoon sun or alfresco dining with the most magnificent views. For the sun worshippers, there are four teak lounge chairs to enjoy relaxing by the private pool, watching the cruise ships sail away or just listening to the sound of breaking waves along the cliffs. By night, enjoy a favorite glass of wine, stretch out and stargaze, or watch the moonrise from the Terrace.

Back inside the villa, on the second floor, you will find the two air-conditioned king suites widely separated for exceptional privacy (perfect for couples traveling together). Both bedrooms feature en suite baths and custom designed four post king-size beds. The high vaulted ceiling imparts a grand sense of scale and spaciousness. Attached to the second bedroom is the meditation/massage room and private balcony overlooking the pool terrace and Caribbean. Call one of the many island massage therapists for your private in-home massage - Can you thing of a better way to start your vacation.

Villa Velaire is furnished with your comfort in mind without sacrificing its artful elegance and style. This rare oceanfront villa, located on the beautiful island of St Maarten, will fulfill most vacation wish lists.

Our names are Ron and Kim. Ron is in the Hotel/Restaurant business and I am in the marketing/advertising business. We purchased the house with our good friends Steve and Meredith. Steve is a General Contractor and Meredith works for the state. Steve and Meredith recently welcomed their first son.

Kim Gilbert purchased this villa in 2013

You will love the views of the Caribbean Ocean - the house has such a good feel, you never want to leave

Love the private pool overlooking the Caribbean. The location is also fantastic, close enough to all the action in Simpson Bay (you can walk to the Red Piano, Bon Appetite, the Hollywood Casino), but far enough away to enjoy some quiet relaxation.

THIS WAS PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
It was out first time in St. Maarten and we truly enjoyed our stay. The villa more than met our expectations. The bedrooms were very spacious, the family room was homey and the view from the pool was incredible. Plus, you could not have stayed at a better location. It was close to great restaurants but far enough away you could enjoy the peace and quiet. The staff was also extremely friendly and made our stay very pleasant. Thank you again Kim for making our trip possible. It will truly be a vacation we will never forget.

A wonderful place to stay. The property is immaculate and very well maintained. Above average amenities as well. Kitchen very cook friendly. But, what makes this property is the private pool that looks out to the ocean. 2 of the 6 days we were there, we did not leave the property.

UNBELIEVABLE GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Me and my husband (along with another couple) just returned from Villa Velaire, and let me tell you, it was difficult to leave! In hindsight, I wish we would have booked for another week! The villa is absolutely breathtaking! As soon as you walk in the door, you are hit with a view of the patio overlooking the ocean. We spent countless hours on the patio... coffee in the morning, dips in the pool in the afternoon, and cocktails before a night out on the town. Since we traveled in June, the temperature was a little hot and sticky. I was worried that the villa would also be hot and sticky. But the air conditioners worked great, and I actually needed a blanket to cover up because I got a little chilly! The villa has all the amenities you could ever need, and then some. I was surprised to find the kitchen completely stocked so we could make our own breakfast in the morning. We preferred to eat most meals out, but it was nice to cook up some eggs in the morning so we had more time to relax on the patio taking in the beautiful view. The villa is in very close proximity to lots of beaches, restaurants and bars, food markets and shops. We rented a car for the week to make getting around a little easier, but everything you could ever want or need is just minutes from the villa. There is honestly not one negative thing I could say about the villa, or our trip to St. Maarten. We were on a beautiful island, in a stunning villa and we felt like we were right at home. We will absolutely be returning to Villa Velaire as soon as possible! I am trying to talk my husband into making it a yearly trip for our anniversary! I would HIGHLY recommend this villa to anyone who is thinking about renting! I wish I could give it more than 5 stars because it really was that good!

THE BEST VAVATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived at the Villa we wereimpressed with its quietly stated elegance! It litterally "hugged" us with it's charm. We immediately outside to the pool dewck and were amazed at the scenic beauty of the views, and, just on que, a beautiful cruise ship was pulling into the harbor! The kitchen and bathrooms were fabulously appointed and the bed rooms were once again quioetly stated elegance. Everyone on the island from the time we arrived umtil the time we left were friendly and curtious, willing to help us with directions to beautiful hidden beaches. The snorkling was great and the scenic beauty of all the beaches we visited were breathtaking. Having morning coffee at the pool was just one of the many highlights of our trip. We many found many hidden treasure of places to dine and one of the most fabulous French pastry shops of all time! (the eclaires we out of this world!). We can hardly wait to book our next trip back to Villa Valarie next year and every year after that! Jeff and Phyllis, Buckingham, PA. USA
