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.

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!
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.
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.
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.
From travel planning with Mark, to pre trip coordination with Emma, to airport pickup with Julio, to the concierge waiting in the villa, we were treated like VIPs! The villa was exactly as pictured. We had an issue with hard beds and the AC. Mattress toppers were in place and the AC guy were on the scene in hours, and a bottle of champagne for our trouble was delivered. Jasmine, Donna, Emma, and Meghann were top notch. Nothing was too much trouble. The villa is stocked with most everything needed. The bedrooms are spacious. There is enough outside seating to host a dinner party! We absolutely loved Melissa--our housekeeper. She even blew up our pool floats! Great sound system with speakers located outside. The view is breathtaking; especially while dangling our lings over the end of the infinity pool! We felt secure knowing the guards were at the gate. We will return soon!
Amber villa is a lovely property. However, the first day we arrived, the remote controls to operate the property gate did not work. So when one of the guests tried to leave the property, he could not. The remote controls were quickly replaced. Also, there were a number of small issues, i.e., the outside bathroom did not have a light bulb and we had guests so we used candles; the pool lights didn't work and when they were fixed a wire was left exposed in the pool which we considered a danger so we did not swim until it was fixed. Most importantly, the only television that operated was the living room television. The television in one guest room was made operable on our last day. However, whenever an issue arose, it was quickly addressed. by Melissa, the grounds keeper and Jasmine who worked quickly to fix any problems that occurred. We suggest a checklist beforehand to ensure that all is in working condition before guests arrive. With that said, we enjoyed our vacation at Amber.
