About michelle

My husband and I have two sons and we all enjoy travelling. We live in Canada, and love being around water. I enjoy interior decorating and have had a lot of fun putting our own personal stamp on our villa. We look forward to taking our Yorkie

'Paige' with us on our next trip.

michelle purchased this villa in 2011

Why michelle chose Pelican Key

After visiting the island for more than 10 years, we are so excited to have a piece of paradise. Of all the islands we have visited, we kept coming back to St. Maarten and it's the one place in the world we are never ready to leave when it's time to go home.

What makes this villa unique

Having your own private pool on the oceanfront deck, one can be tempted to succumb to 'sand gravity', as referred to by the local residents. Sitting on the lounger and watching the boats sail by, enjoying a morning coffee or an evening cocktail, it is the ultimate place to relax and rejuvenate. A short stroll into Simpson Bay you will find everything from the local bakery with fresh croissants daily, to the healthy 'Top Carrot' option for fresh juices and snacks. The local supermarket has new produce daily, should you decide to eat in on your own patio. Piano Bars, Casino, or the local Beach bar all provide evening entertainment and are within walking distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just got home from a beautiful week in the villa. We thank you for the bottle of champagne – it was a real surprise and a wonderful treat – which we saved for our last night to celebrate our week in Saint Maarten. I’m sure you’ve heard all this before but…we truly enjoyed your villa, the location is perfect. We really fell in love with Marion. She is full of helpful information regarding places to eat, go, and background information on the island.

We hope your renovations move along smoothly, we will definitely check back to the web site to see the changes. Once again, thank you for your kindness and for sharing your villa with us.

WOW, WOW, WOW is right!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful, with one of the most well equipped kitchens of any home we've rented. We've rented places in Anguilla, St. John, Virgin Gorda, Tortola, and many places in the U.S. and this is, without question, one of the best homes we've rented. It is clean, wonderful kitchen, SUPER comfortable beds/pillows with a view worth a million dollars. Watching the boats come and go througout the day was so much fun. It was also great that you can walk to restaurants vs. always getting into the car, although, a car is neccesary to explore the island and check out different restaurants and beach bars. Thank you for opening your wonderful home to us & for being so incredibly easy to work with.

Perfectly Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The condo exceeded our expectations! This was our 6th stay on St Martin and this was by far the best place ever! The owner, Michelle was kind and very helpful and Marion, the housekeeper, spoiled us rotten! The condo was very well equipped and it was impeccably clean. The pictures do not do it justice, which is hard to believe! Can't wait to go back soon.

Even Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the gorgeous villa and in this area....convenient to restaurants, beaches, etc. It was every bit as beautiful as the pictures. Our two daughters (ages 17 and 23) were with us and appreciated the speedy internet. After all day on the beach, it was lovely to dip in our quiet, private pool before leaving for fantastic dinners in the area. I highly recommend and even hope to stay again this spring!

My husband & I had a fantastic time! The villa is very clean, decorated like a 5 star resort, and gives enough privacy to thoroughly enjoy yourselves. The views of the ocean and island are amazing. The private pool & patio are perfect. The location on the island is spot on - you are close to restaurants, food stores, anything & everything you need. It was the perfect place to completely decompress from the normal chaos at home. We very much look forward to our next visit!

Don't pass up this gem of a place.

  • 5 of 5

The reviews are right about this place as it is a private villa with a 180 degree view of the ocean WITH ITS OWN PRIVATE POOL! You cannot go wrong with staying here. It has been recently renovated with a modern touch and the owners did not skimp on ANY detail. It is in a secluded and private part of the island yet not too far from the main road, Airport Road, where several local restaurants and shops exist. My wife and I rented a car, grabbed local sandwiches and beer, and went to the beaches during the day. Afterward, we relaxed at the pool and watched the sunset and cruise ships depart from St. Phillipsburg while drinking the best Bordeaux wine we’ve ever had.

The owners are very accommodating and responsive to any inquiries you may have. This place has Wi-Fi if you really need it, cable TV, and the owners provide you with a prepaid cell phone. The kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, and plates giving you the option to cook at home and coolers for the beach or the local fish market. You also have a house keeper who cleans every day, and a pool keeper who comes twice a week.

It is definitely worth traveling around the entire island to experience the culture. This was our first visit to St. Maarten and it took about two days for us to get acclimated to the island. For some reason road signs hardly exist on the island so use landmarks for navigation (we think locals sold them to cruise ship tourists and the gov’t got tired of replacing them). Our favorite spots were Café Atlantico for breakfast, Karakter Beach Lounge and Restaurant, Baie Rouge and Cupecoy beaches, and Royal Food Store for French sandwiches (located 1 mile east of Baie Rouge beach on the left).

We are so happy with our decision to stay here as it turned out better than expected. This is the perfect destination if you just want to relax, enjoy the sun, and celebrate pina colada hour, every hour. Of course, if you are seeking adventure you can definitely do so as kayak, sail boat, and boat tours are available.

It is one thing to dream over the pictures and another to experience them. We are already planning our next trip back to St. Maarten, and Villa Libre is where we will stay again!

My new wife and I recently returned from the island of St. Maarten after having our wedding/honeymoon there.. After looking at many Villas to rent we decided to give this one a try.. We were so pleased with our decision! The pictures are great but when you see it in person you will be stunned. You can clearly see the owners love this place and take great care of it. Marion (the housekeeper) is amazing! We became friends as soon as she opened the door. She is a lovely lady and we consider ourselves very lucky to have met her. This villa will not disappoint.. We will be renting this again and again!
