Five star vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing two weeks we just spent in St-Martin! Sylvie and Antoine's house was absolutely perfect. Beautiful, very comfortable, well equipped and the indoor-outdoor living and dining rooms make you want to stay there forever. We highly recommend this vacation rental. Sylvie and Antoine are the nicest hosts and made us feel very welcome.

Paradise by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Villa L'Ancre Blue in June of this year. We rented the home for 13 days with our 3 daughters. We were greeted upon our arrival by both Sylvie and Antoine which was a wonderful touch. They took the time to show us their home and even had the fridge stocked with drinks and food for breakfast. The home is beautifully decorated and very clean. The home sits on the mountainside and has a marvelous view of Pinel island across the bay that you can see from most of the house including the master bedroom. Waking up every morning with the view from the master bedroom was definitely a treat for my husband and I. The pool sits off the master bedroom and the main deck was a good size for the 5 of us and the kids enjoyed it nearly every day of the trip. The covered deck surrounding the living room was a perfect spot to sit every evening either reading or playing games with the kids. The bedrooms are air conditioned which we only used during the evenings as during the day there were steady breezes throughout the house from the bay. The villa is conveniently located on the French side of the island near restaurants (Grand Case is only a 10 minute drive), grocery stores and Orient beach. We tend to spend a lot of our days at the beach so with Orient Beach only a few minutes away by car, it was a perfect location for getting to the best beaches on the island easily. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, cooking utensils and dishes and all of them are in excellent condition. We tend to cook on our vacations and the kitchen and grill had everything we needed to make dinner and breakfast. The house is situated in a quiet, gated area of the island which allowed us to relax and enjoy our time on the island and our evenings on the deck. The house has a private parking spot which was right next to the house. They also have some kayaks which we had a great time using to go to Pinel Island for swimming and snorkeling. Kayaking to Pinel Island was a short 15 minute trip which was easier than we thought it would be and was a great beach to swim, snorkel and have lunch. Overall, we had a wonderful time at the home of Sylvie and Antoine. They were wonderful hosts and checked in with us throughout our stay to ensure all our needs were met. We look forward to staying there for our next trip to the island.

L'Ancre Bleu - A Saint Martin Gem!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa L’Ancre Blue. The villa feels like a real home and the owners, Sylvie and Antoine, make you feel welcome and attend to any needs or questions. We truly appreciated after a long day traveling to arrive with nice stock of food and beverages in the fridge.

The villa is clean, well-furnished, comfortable and beautifully decorated with an assortment of art and nautical pieces. The wood floors and wooden windows and shutters, combined with the collectibles and custom furniture give the home a rustic elegance.

The kitchen is cozy and well-appointed with new appliances, and we enjoyed preparing meals and cooking with the gas grill located off the terrace. All three bedrooms have air conditioning and bathrooms with showers. The Wi-Fi in the villa worked great and there is a nice flat screen TV in the den. Although the satellite TV was French, we were able to plug in our laptop and stream our USA Netflix account for movies and other programming accessible through the internet. There is also a nice desk area next to the kitchen and the mini stereo system with an iPod dock sounded great for both the den, terrace and pool area.

The views of Cul de Sac and Pinel Island are amazing, particularly from the master bedroom, pool area, and covered deck. The pool overlooks Cul de Sac and is lovely at nighttime with a pool light that continually changes colors. The villa is located in a quiet, gated community, and is very close to the island’s best beaches, Orient Bay, Anse Marcel, Grand Case and its fabulous restaurants, along with the fact it is very close to the Pinel Island beaches. You can easily walk to the dock to access the Pinel Island ferry or kayak launch point. The villa has its own kayaks; however, we opted for the ferry as the return trip would have been a little too adventurous after spending several hours drinking and dining at the beachside bars on Pinel. There are several restaurants within walking distance, along with a very nice little grocery and pharmacy.

The great part about the location of the villa is that you can drive to all the best locations on the French side without getting into traffic that you can often encounter on the Dutch side or going through Marigot. L’Ancre Blue can accommodate 6 people comfortably, and is a good size for families. In our case, my wife and I found it cozy and perfect for just a couple. We highly recommend and plan on returning.

C'était magnifique!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect stay at this villa. The photos don't do it justice. It is even more special than it looks, and the photos look pretty great. Stayed 12 days and it was barely enough time to relax and enjoy the house, discover the island and take some day trips to St. Barths and Anguilla.

The villa is perfectly appointed and very thoughtfully designed. Once you get the lay of the land, everything is accessible: baguettes, rosé, chevre, sand and sun. DO NOT MISS the caramel souffle at Le Cottage in Grand Case. Extraordinary!

Sylvie and Antoine were the perfect hosts, and we feel very honored they chose to share their piece of paradise with us. Merci beaucoup from us to you, Sylvie and Antoine - we will return to L'Ancre Bleu!

Love, Love, Love!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Sylvie and Antoine's villa. It is beautifully decorated with simple beautiful pieces of art, including lovely paintings and carvings done by Antoine. We enjoyed many beaches when we were here; Anse Marcel, Orient (twice), Pinel Island (where we took the ferry once and used their kayak another time) and Maho to see the airplanes.

We had several great meals at Pancho Villa, Villa Pizza, Jam Rock and L'Effemar in Grand Case. You will even see Antoine's artwork displayed at the lovely restaurant Effemar. We especially loved the chicken nachos at Pancho Villa and the extremely gracious owner Joey.

We also enjoyed spending the week with Antoine and Sylvie's cat! He was a great little companion.

We will miss the amazing views of the bay and swimming in the pool in the evening. Hope to return soon!!!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Villa Blue Anchor was the perfect place for our family from Toronto to spend a week away. We have three kids ( ages 16, 15 and 11) and the villa was perfect for us. The three bedrooms were beautifully decorated with ample space and lovely cute bathrooms. Sylvie and Antoine have wonderful taste and the villa is decorated with interesting collections and stunning pieces of artwork. The lighting is thoughtfully placed to highlight the artwork while giving the house a wonderful glow at night. The master bedroom is unique, spacious and has a beautiful view that you wake up to every morning. The kitchen was well equipped and we ate full cooked breakfasts at home daily and BBQ at night twice- staying in for the evening. There are many quaint areas to get together and hangout as a family or separate to read a book, nap or play cards. We used their kayaks to paddle to Pinel Island and found the villa located in great area, quite close to all you need. We felt safe at Villa Blue Anchor. It was amazing and would love to come back.
