A great Stay, Highly Recommend.
It was our second time at Villa Cote Mer and be able to stay there really drove our decision to return to St Martin. There is so much to see and do in St Martin and this villa offers the perfect starting point to enjoy the island. Located a few minutes drive from every thing you need, its really not a hassle to enjoy the area. Cul de Sac is by far one of the prettier parts of the island. While Orient Bay (next door) and Grand Case's great restaurants are only a 5-7min drive away as are many beaches. But overall we found the best beach in St Martin to be right in front of the house at Pinel Island and the house kayaks provided the perfect way to get there. Reserve your chairs and lunch spot at Karibuni and there not much left to think about.
The house itself is airy, modern, well appointed and very inviting. Just like the pics and more. Bedrooms are large, comfortable and kept spotless. Everything you need is available incl, TV (didnt turn it on) wifi, ipod speaker, fully equipped kitchen, BBQ and AC in the BR should you need it. Once you open the large sliding doors to the deck, the house takes on a new dimension. A very nice space indeed. My favourite time was taking an early AM plunge in the pool followed by nice cup of Nespresso. A great way to start the day.
The greeting, support and assistance were also top notch and professional. Henri and Dominique are wonderful hosts. The Pool and house were cleaned during our stay and they helped us out w/ car rental, restaurants and attractions. Help was never more than a phone call away. (Note get a roaming package for your cell phone as we got hit w/ exorbitant charges on our return,)
Overall it was a perfect vacation experience and Villa Cote Mer certainly had a lot do with it. Congrats guys.
Comment. We had read one review above commenting about the area around the villa. It is not run down at all. nor dangerous, we felt safe all the time. Also no AC needed unless you don't like the gentle ocean breeze. Enjoy.
Owner's Response: Dear Louise and Ralph, We are so happy you enjoyed our place again. We love it too ! Calm and nice and so close to activities. We were in Pinel this afternoon, great lunch, nice sun, good atmosphere! It was a real pleasure receiving you ! Next year (?) bad new for your phone operator no need for a roaming package we have instalated a phone which permit you to get in touch for free with anybody on the island ! Have a nice winter, thanks again, Henri and Dominique.
