Beautiful location in Pelican Key
Beautiful! We loved sitting on the veranda watching all of the boats and listening to the crash of the waves below. It is a very relaxing setting and the pool was amazing after some time in the sun. Bruno and Corinne were wonderful and made sure we had what we needed. They do not speak much English so we used a translator app on our phone when necessary. It is a 20 minute walk to most bars and restaurants, but we used a taxi often. I would highly recommend a stay at this ocean front villa.
Would definitely stay again
We didn’t rent a car as we were going on a 7 days island cruise after our stay here. We did not need to rent a car as you can walk just about everywhere you need to go. It was also very relaxing and beautiful. Bring no see um spray though if you’re the kind of person that is a magnet for biting bugs. It was a $7/pp for the 3 of us from the airport. Small deli nearby for essentials and plenty of places to eat.
Relaxing poolside sunsets with yacht parade daily
We have stayed at many places in the Caribbean always looking for the awesome sunset with a pool. La Calanthe is it !
The pictures and property description are Excellent and the property is just as advertised. We spent most of our time on the large outdoor covered living area which lays between the pool deck and the home. This was our location for sunset cocktails and daily relaxing. There is plenty of shade if you do not want direct sunlight but plenty of poolside chairs if you want some sun. The property has both French and U.S. cable TV systems with music channels with outdoor speakers.
The caretakers Bruno and Corrine are just steps away if you need help with something (like ordering Thai food delivery on night 1) but also give you plenty of privacy. They are not present unless you want them to be (perfect).
The home is located just up the hill (5 minute drive) from what could be described as the Simpson Bay Strip. A popular location for bars and restaurants. We rented a car so we could explore well beyond Simpson Bay. Our favorite restaurant was the Sint Maarten Yacht Club which sits at the draw bridge into the lagoon. At regularly scheduled times (3pm, 4pm, 5pm, etc) you can watch the multi million dollar yachts parade in and out of the narrow lagoon entry.
If you are into watching yachts, La Calanthe's infinity pool is a great spot all on its own. There is just a constant flow of mega yachts and sailboats parading in front of the home all day and night. Great relaxing view!
Thanks Bruno, Corrine and Olivier, hope to be back soon !
Heaven on earth
This is my 2nd time staying here and it was perfect!! Bruno and Corinne are lovely and helpful. Thank you for the chance to stay in paradise!
We absolutely loved La Calanthe! Beautiful home and property with views that are better than what you see in the pictures.
Corine and Bruno, the property caretakers were also great.
