Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, 4 Sleeps

Amber is one of the most elegant and stylish villas in Terres Basses. The gorgeous tropical garden lined driveway delivers you to the beautiful front door, an entrance reminiscent of villas in Provence. Dazzling views and a chic interior greet you as you step inside.

It is a well thought out home. In front of you are the stunning views of the sea, Anguilla and mountains. The spacious and airy living room is decorated with custom painted cabinetry filled with well selected objects, antique furniture, soft beige travertine tile flooring and beautiful upholstered seating in white and tan. The attitude is inviting and serene.

The wide covered deck is filled with beautiful plantings and seating niches carefully positioned to create privacy. The heated endless pool flows seamlessly into the sea view. Elegant ironwork and columns blend with the terracotta tile roof creating a true French Caribbean exterior style. The kitchen, in soft painted whites and tan marble, reflects the villas Provence attitude. Just off the kitchen is the interior dining area; beyond is outdoor dining with views of the sea.

The four bedrooms are as elegant as the main villa. Each stylish room is decorated in beautiful French fabrics in soothing color tones; each one a comfortable oasis. The large bathrooms all feature painted wood and tan marble for a softer spa style attitude. One, on the upper level, connects to the living room; two upper level rooms are off the pool. The fourth bedroom is on the lower level accessed by a private walkway surrounded by beautiful tropical foliage. The views are stunning.

Although secluded, you are close to amenities. It is a short drive to the beaches and to Baie Nettles new culinary stars; Le Sand, Dreams and Mezza Luna. You are five minutes to the airport. In 10 minute you reach the charming French capital of Marigot with restaurants, shops, historic buildings and the Creole Market. Drive 25 minutes to Grand Case or Philipsburgs shopping haven.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

Internet on the island can be inconsistent and signal strength is generally lower than in developed cities. As our guests in St. Martin, be prepared to work less and relax more.

Satellite television in St. Martin can be spotty so remember to set your DVR to record your favorite shows before leaving home.

Please note that the third bedroom on a three room rental is located separately and down stairs from the main villa, with its own private staircase entry.

Each of the four bedrooms, three upper and one lower level, are only accessible from the terraces. The upper level master bedroom is only available when the villa is booked as a 4-bedroom.

The barbeque grill utilizes charcoal, not gas. With the brilliant La Cornue stove, you may never use the grill!

Bring your Julia Child cookbooks and indulge in cooking something amazing on a real French La Cornue stove. It is an incredible culinary experience whether you are a novice or experienced chef. Better yet, let us hire a private chef to cook a meal for you!

Amazing Time at Amber!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience at the Amber. From the moment of deciding which villa to use the process of booking this villa with a wire pay was so easy, from the deposit all the way to the final payment. Everything Laura did was handled immediately. Then was turned over to Daggi our concierge. She was able to book our massages and a boat cruise. Everything was planned perfectly with no hiccups! From the moment we landed in St. Martin, Phillip picked us up and took us right to our beautiful villa! Our jeep rental was already there so we did not have to do anything! We had pre-ordered food and were able to stay at the villa the rest of the evening. What a perfect process and stay for a week!

Perfect villa for 4 couples!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at villa Amber! It was the perfect setup for four couples, each suite equally beautiful! The views were spectacular and location was the best. Typically we like to head to the beach most days when we're in St. martin, but I had a hard time dragging our group from the Villa! Melissa was fantastic and took great care of us - she was a true pleasure to have around. I think we'll be coming back!!

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Villa Amber started from the moment we walked in to see the view surrounding the infinity pool and fabulous outdoor space. The staff could not have been more accommodating to our every request and needs. My only recommendation when renting three bedrooms is to utilize all three on the same level. My niece and husband had to utilize the third bedroom downstairs making it a little uncomfortable for them late at night to separate from the family. Other than that recommendation our week at your little piece of heaven could not have been better. Will definitely return. Thank you!

Memorable and special location with outstanding views from heated pool

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful location, outstanding views and a large fabulous heated pool. Villa was extremely comfortable and Malissa who looks after the property was caring, kind and fun but always professional. We intend to return to villa Amber.

Great family trip

  • 5 of 5

Overall, the house was great and our experience with Luxury Retreats was better than we hoped. The main problem we had was that we paid for the 4th bedroom and were not able to use it the entire trip. The bedroom was located separate from the rest of the house and since we were traveling with children, it was not safe for them to be on their own and we didn't want to stay that far away from them for security reasons. There was a groundskeeper on site for most of our stay, including the evenings, in a room immediate adjacent to the 4th bedroom. When we told our on site concierge, we were told he wasn't supposed to be there. We didn't have any problems, but we were still uncomfortable using the space. We played musical chairs every night so that the same person didn't have to sleep on the coach every night.

Tremendous

  • 5 of 5

Walking into Amber and seeing the very large living area with the large sliding windows that gave you the view of the Caribbean was worth all the time of planning and waiting to get there. Just to stand there and see the very large infinity pool that gave way to the Sea below was breathtaking. With our concierge, house keeper, gardener and our Luxury Retreats contact all there, we knew we were in great hands. All properties have their idiosyncrasies and small problems that occur. No matter how new. It is how the staff make it right. They did anything we asked and guided us to anything we wanted or needed to see. I can't say enough of their caring and support.
