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.

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."

Fantastic Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to this villa was fantastic. It has a large private patio area that gives you a choice between sun and shade all day. Having your own pool just above the Caribbean Sea was the best feature. The location is perfect, but it is best to rent a car in order to go explore the island. Our car rental was not expensive, although we really didn't leave the villa all that much. It was fully stocked from the towels down to the silverware. Overall, we had a great time and definitely return to this villa."

Private Pool!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time here, particularly having our own pool. It really eliminated the hassle of fighting for chairs, public restrooms, overpriced drinks... On top of that, the unit was exactly as the pictures show. Doug was great to work with and gave us some good tips. Location is quiet and private but close enough to all of the restaurants and bars. Looking forward to coming back.

Great Place! We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this house. It is exactly as described and shown. It is very private with all of the amenities, including its own private pool. The view is wonderful. In fact it is difficult to leave; however, when we did, there are numerous restaurants and activities very close by. We can't wait to come back next year.

Wouldn't Go Anywhere Else

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stay here every year. We used to travel all over the Caribbean. After finding this Villa we have made this our annual vacation spot. The house is perfectly configured. 180 degree ocean views with a private pool and sleeping to the sounds of the waves at night. You are literally 20 feet from the water. It's the perfect vacation spot. Besides the total privacy and tranquility, you are only a short walk/drive to all local restaurants, bakeries, casino, beaches. It's located in a quiet guarded complex. Every amenity one might need is provided including wifi, vonage phone service (US phone service), full kitchen, pool chairs, beach towels, you name it. Not to mention, Janet is a great owner to work with.
