About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4) $1,750.00 to $3,500.00

Take in a relaxing day or evening swim in your own very private pool overlooking the Caribbean Sea. You will love the spectacular sunsets and watching the magnificent cruise ships set sail each night while enjoying cocktails and dinner pool side. Bring your fishing and snorkeling gear (or rent it nearby) there is fantastic fishing and snorkeling directly in front of the villa. If you are looking for entertainment on the island, there is a fabulous piano bar just down the street and wonderful restaurants at your finger tips, no need to go far.

Constance will keep your villa very clean and take wonderful care of you 6 days a week. She will even cook a traditional Caribbean meal for you should you desire (for an additional fee). My guests love speaking with Constance as she is full of stories and suggestions as to what to see on the island. She can also arrange a tour of the island for you if you wish.

We look forward to sharing our very special villa with you and know once you stay at Villa Sera Bella, you will return, just ask the majority of our clients. References available upon request.

About Doug Nichols

After being annual renters of this Villa, my wife and I were given the opportunity to purchase from the wonderful previous owners (Janet and Don). Of course, we could not pass up the chance. We have vacationed all over the Caribbean (and to some extent, the world), and had made a point to come back every year to "our home away from home." Our hope is to provide the same experience with our guests that we have grown accustomed to.

Doug Nichols purchased this villa in 2016

Why Doug Nichols chose World

Pelican Cove is a private gated community with 17 villas at the tip of Pelian Key Estate. Our villa is one of 10 villas located directly on the ocean. Beautiful sunsets, yachts galore, sunshine and a private pool. What more can I say?

What makes this villa unique

The view of cruise ships sailing by while the sun sets is one of the most beautiful sights you will ever see.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Week without Kids

We had a great visit. Place just as photos show. It was very peaceful, and the location was great. Constance was wonderful, and we were able to extend our stay by a couple of days. Don't hesitate to stay here.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here based on the photos and reviews, and were very happy with our decision. The place is exactly as described. Overall, we found St Maarten to be an excellent vacation island, and this villa could not have been better located. The owner (Doug) was very easy to work with. Highly recommend.

Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a great two weeks at this property. Although the villa is in a gated community, it has enough privacy, that you feel completely alone. The view is spectacular, and while we did go to t the beach one day, we felt that there was really no reason to leave the villa. We only needed one bedroom, which was fine. The master bedroom is right off the pool and the ocean. Cracking the window and hearing the ocean during the nighttime was a great experience. Constance was great, although we really didn't need her that much. She will come as much or as little as you need. Doug was easy to work with and checked in to make sure everything was going smoothly. Overall, we had a great experience and have no complaints.

Excellent Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5

Our flight arrived a little later than usual, so we had the keys arranged to be left in a secure place. As a result we had no issues with getting situated. The property is located in a great location on the island. It gives you the feeling that you're the only people around with your own ocean oasis. When we did leave, we were very close to the heart of Simpson Bay and only a short drive to most other areas of the island. We had dinner on the French side several times, and the drive was only about 15 minutes. The villa is well suited and located for people wanting to get away, but still stay within reach of you typical Caribbean vacation spot.

Better than a Hotel

  • 5 of 5

You are renting a private residence fully furnished and stocked. It is very private and right on the water with its own pool. The villa location is very quiet, but as mentioned in other reviews, it is quite close to the action of Simpson Bay. The layout is open and allowed us to keep the doors open and feel the breeze through the villa during the daytime. Overall, it was a much better experience and value than a hotel would be. Be sure to go the Yacht Club for breakfast or Happy Hour."

"Great Location, Great Pool, Great View"

  • 5 of 5

"We just got back from a wonderful week in St Maarten. The Villa was perfect and exactly as pictured. The location was good, and we could not get enough of the view. Of course, having you own pool only makes it that much better. Constance and Doug were easy to work with. The location is quiet, but it is a short walk or drive to many of the area restaurants and bars. Overall, we were very happy and recommend highly."
