Villa, 1-4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
LUXURY REDEFINED lux•u•ry (noun) 1: a condition of abundance or great ease and comfort: a sumptuous environment 2: the state of great comfort and extravagant living For twelve years, Villa Mille Fleurs in St. Martin has embodied the very definition of luxury-- elegant, comfortable, sumptuous and extravagant. In September 2017, Hurricane Irma came along, devastating the island of St. Martin and severely damaging Mille Fleurs. For the next two years, we took the opportunity to consider how we wanted to rebuild and re-imagine Mille Fleurs in a way that our returning as well as our new guests would find completely updated, yet every bit as comfortable, elegant and yes, luxurious as before. All the while preserving the timeless architectural style of this Grand Dame of the Caribbean-- and, of course, the comfortable indoor/outdoor lifestyle that is so much a part of Mille Fleurs. The new Mille Fleurs has been furnished in a lighter, more transitional style-- an elegant and timeless design that combines new and old—in a fresh way. Comfortable furnishings, but without the fuss of traditional styling.

Home Away from home
This was our second trip to Mille Fleurs. We enjoyed this trip even more than the first one! We had a better feel for the island and loved exploring the beaches and restaurants. We have already booked our next trip and know it'll be just as great as our first two!
So Wonderful We Came Back Again
We first visited Mille Fleurs three years ago and my husband and I and our daughters couldn't wait to return. The photos don't do it justice. Everything is so beautiful AND clean, the view is breathtaking, the pool and super comfy lounges are fabulous, the pool floats are heaven, the beds are comfortable and the sheets are so nice (and ironed by the incomparable Heither.) What more could you want? Maybe a fully stocked kitchen with 2 refrigerators,covered porches, cool breezes blowing in from the Caribbean, a view of Anguilla (which you must visit), sunsets that rival a National Geographic photograph, privacy in a guard gated community with a gated wall around the property, ocean breezes blowing through the house day and night as the back of the home is never closed, and an owner who is so caring (about the property and his guests) that he answers every email promptly and meticulously. If you come you will return. That is the true measure of a wonderful property--you love it enough to come back again.
From the moment you enter the door and step down the steps into the grand parlor, you are captivated by the spectacular views of the surrounding ocean. The parlor itself is tastefully decorated with somewhat of an opulent decor. Three oversized open french doors seem to beckon you forward to draw you out onto the magnificent columned terrace where you are greeted by an unbelievably panoramic view. The rest of our party, which included my family of 5 and 2 very dear friends, continued on to tour the estate while I remained on the terrace taking it all in. I sat down in a shaded pavilion overlooking Terres Basses and all it has to offer while listening to breeze blown palm leaves and doves cooing all about. It resembled a dream or romantic movie from long ago. Unbelievable! I decided to rejoin the group and explore the villa. The master bedroom was magnificent, fit for a king and queen with its 4 post canopy bed including an amazing amount of closet space - I only wished we had packed for a stay of several weeks. The remaining 3 bedrooms were all located on the far right wing of the villa and were equally splendid in decor and comfort. A super equipped kitchen with 2 refrigerators and a stocked bar were our next visit on the tour. It was at this point that we decided to reconvene on the terrace and begin the relaxation portion of our vacation by comfortably lounging around the pool, swimming and floating in the cool waters and having cocktails under the pavilion. We were notified that it was Easter Monday (rendering many businesses closed) which only further solidified our decision to remain at the villa. As the sun set and the peepers began to sing to us, the lights magically lit up the pool and outdoor living space, enhancing the experience to an even higher level. And we lived like this for 7 nights and 7 days!
The owner, Jack, worked with us on many aspects of our trip in a very professional yet personal manner. He was quick to respond to any inquiries and very thorough with the information he provided. Thank you, Jack, for allowing us to share your beautiful estate in all of its exuberance and grandeur. What a magnificent vacation!
Awesome Mille Fleurs Villa
What a beautiful Villa this was! I would definitely come back to this home in St. Martin. Absolutely great views from all around. The owner is the best I have ever worked with. He answered every question I ever had, and believe me, for months and months I emailed him with questions! He always answered me back right away with everything answered! Thanks so much Jack for being the Best! Heather, who is the housekeeper was also very good and was always there for us. She kept the Villa so clean! The pictures really don't do justice at all! We arrived and just where all in Aw! We just got home on Sunday and we are all missing the lovley home already! We have all said, when we do visit the Island again, we will stay at Mille Fleurs! I really could go on and on about this place, but it would take me forever because there is way to much to praise about. Who wouldn't want to stay in a place that was once owned by Diana Ross!! We even listened to her music! They also supply great CD's to listen too. We hired a Chef on our last night and that was such a great experience for all. I would highly recommend that. The pool was fantastic and enjoyed watching all the cruise ships go by and boats! We walked the grounds and walked down to the beach by the Villa. That was also beautiful to see the sunsets! You must go to this Villa to see what I have said and experienced. You won't be disappointed at all. The only thing that we did have to get used to was that all the doors are open! Its like living out doors. We got used to that real quick and actually thought it was neat! NO BUGS or Creatures! Enjoy...
AWESOME FIVE STAR PROPERTY
The pictures don’t even do justice to the villa. Wherever you look is a pleasure for the eyes, whether it is the villa itself or the view. Every moment is magic.
It starts at the airport where a taxi is sent to drive you to the house where the housekeeper, the gardener and the representative of Sotheby’s - who manages the house on site - greet you and give you all the information necessary to make sure your vacation starts immediately.
The house is tastefully decorated and in excellent condition. The extremely comfortable beds meet a five star hotel standard. Each bedroom has its own TV and ensuite bathroom. Plenty of comfortable areas to sit inside and outside. There is a stereo system with adjustable speakers for the living room, kitchen, dining area and swimming pool. Plenty of DVDs and CDs are even provided. The location is safe in a gated community, actually in the most secluded area of St. Martin. Plum Bay beach is exactly 450 yards from the house. The swimming pool is not heated but around 80°F in December.
Heither, the housekeeper, comes 4 hours each day – except Sundays – to clean the house, make the beds and change the towels. Lots of supermarkets with French and American products a short ride away. Private catering can also be arranged. Altogether it is like renting a private villa with the service of a hotel, staff being at your disposal if needed.
As the house was not rented until the next day, we could even stay until our plane departed mid afternoon and enjoy an extra and last day of vacation!
Jack the owner is very responsive and will check that everything goes smoothly, even when you are back home. Our deposit was returned within 48 hours.
We are used to renting properties but this one was definitely the best. We can’t wait to go back!
