La Bella Casa is a charming Caribbean estate surrounded by lush tropical gardens and sprawling green lawns. The views overlooking elegant La Samanna Hotel, Baie Longue Beach and the deep blue Caribbean dazzle morning to night. Sunsets are magical paintings in hot pinks and orange; a colorful backdrop for cocktail hour. Featuring 9 bedrooms, the villa is a perfect setting for large families, groups of friends or weddings. Although spacious, it has an intimate feel. You can be together or quite private.
The interior and exterior dcor is an exotic mix of Indonesian and French style. Neutral shades of white and cream are accented with pops of color in every room. Soft grey tiles run throughout. The exterior terraces and covered verandahs on the upper and lower level provide multiple spaces for relaxing and dining. The new terrace furniture is modern blending beautifully with the sea and large blue pool set in the center of the upper terrace. For fun, a ping pong table sits under a verandah. Throughout the villa, arches and iron work add design interest.
The interior great room is very spacious and casually elegant, perfect for gathering. Sliding glass pocket doors open the room to the view and breezes. New contemporary furniture in the living room include the colours of the sea sky and complement the rest of the interiors. The soaring ceilings are popped with blue trim, a design theme repeated throughout the villa. The pretty French Country kitchen in blue and white Provence tiles features a stunning French stove and beautiful views. A barbeque sits just off the kitchen.
Two bedrooms are in a private, self-contained cottage with its own pool. Seven bedrooms are in the main house. Each has private outdoor seating with either garden or ocean views. The overall mood in each room mixes Provence colors and fabrics in white with blue, yellow or red. Most rooms feature romantic four poster beds. Each en-suite bathroom is tiled in the iconic Provence tiles found in many Terres Basses villas. Several have ocean or garden views from the walk-in showers. A very large suite on the lower level is a quite oasis with its own large terrace and seating both inside and outside. The villa also has a fitness room.
You are well located. The fabulous food scene in Baie Nettle is a few minutes drive while you are 8 minutes to the French capital of Marigot, with its shops, restaurants, markets and galleries. In the opposite direction, you are only 10 minutes to the international airport of Princess Juliana (SXM). Grand Case and Philipsburg are also only 30-minutes away.

Satellite television in St. Martin can be spotty so remember to set your DVR to record your favorite shows before leaving home.
The kitchen is equipped with a fabulous professional French stove, a great culinary tool for the talented amateur cook. A large BBQ is located just off the kitchen.

The house is beautiful and very well maintained. The staff is very efficient and friendly. Mary and Ben were especially helpful and hard working taking care of both the house and the guests. The bedrooms and bath are very spacious, great storage, and nice air conditioning. Beautiful views from everywhere and secure. We had 17 people with us and all loved every minute of our trip. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
We loved the villa! It's very beautiful and relaxing.
We also loved the staff - the caretaker Roy was outstanding and all four people who work for the villa always were available to make everything comfortable and beautiful for us. Our family felt as though this was our second home. The view is gorgeous as is the pool and the accommodations are perfect!
18 of us, 12 adults and 6 children ranging in age from late 60's to 3 years old vacation together every year in a villa in the Caribbean. This year we stayed at La Bella Casa. It was a wonderful experience. The Villa is quite beautiful, the pictures on the website do not do it justice. It is an excellent choice for large groups. We had plenty of space for everyone. The pool is very nice and large many times all 18 of us were in there at once. There were two very large dining tables close to each other one in doors and one out doors on the patio, it was open to the outdoors with no walls or doors so our large group was able to all dine together at the same time which was very convenient. The staff were all very accommodating and extremely friendly. Our Concierge was outstanding. Any thing we needed was taken care of. The house, lawn and pool are very well maintained. Our visit left us with wonderful memories we will carry with us forever.
I've rented many vacation homes on the internet and have become very cautious and skeptical about what I might find. Nothing surprises me. At La Bella Casa, we were surprised in a good way - everything was above expectations. This place is fabulous! It is completely equipped with everything you need from kitchen utensils to pool supplies (nice loungers, umbrellas, towels, etc). The staff is great! They come every morning and make the place spotless again! Roy is a great guy and very helpful and Mary makes your room fresh and clean! We will be coming back!
A group of 4 couples shared this breathtaking home. We were welcomed by the concierge and the warm staff. The home is warm and inviting and the caretakers are excellent. They kept the property clean and well maintained. They were also accessible at all times. We truly enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming again.
The house was wonderful. Spacious and welcoming. A very comfrotable home to share with family. We had plenty of room to move around in and find quiet time when needed. Beautiful sunsets overlooking the sea. More then I expected.
The staff was warm and helpful. ALways smiling.
