The homes elegant entrance, with lush tropical gardens and stunning native boulders, creates an inviting stage for this classic French Creole home dressed in soft yellows and trimmed with elegant dark wood details.
Entering the villa, the stunning panoramic views dazzle with a brilliant sweep of tropical green mountains and endless blue sea and sky. Anguilla is on the horizon. Just below the deck you see waves crashing on the beach. Surrounding the villa are colorful gardens filled with tropical flowers as well as papaya and banana trees. The blue endless heated pool connects the amazing view to the villa. The spacious horseshoe shaped epi wood terrace is filled with outdoor dining and seating to enjoy the view and wonderful breezes. Little seating niches and a large covered gazebo offer quiet places to relax.
The interior great room, with spaces for seating and dining, is fully air condition or opens fully to the tropical breeze. Floor to ceiling glass doors bring in the view. Travertine floors run throughout the interiors. The recently renovated dcor has an open and airy attitude in a mix of contemporary and exotic furnishings and accessories in teak woods and soft taupe and cream colors.

Everything was wonderful! Only recommendation is for the welcome package to have a few more basics like salt and pepper.
Happy Bay Villa was incredible. It was a dream waking up with the views from every room. The landscaping was magnificent! The outdoor space, where we spent 90 % of our waking hours was just perfection. It truly was difficult to leave this home.
We could not have been more pleased with our villa. From the moment I booked our trip it has been great customer service. Our concierge Emma was awesome. She made sure everything was in place for our arrival and met us there. Handled our requests efficiently and offered suggestions for places to visit. I have stayed a few times on St. Martin but never had such a great experience. Our housekeeper Lydia was amazing!!!! Happy Bay Villa exceeded our expectations and will absolutely recommend using Luxury Retreats to everyone!
We had a great week at the Happy Bay Villa.
Overall the villa was in good working order and is well maintained. Not to mention it is in a great location and has amazing views. We did find a dead mouse in the kitchen on the first morning but this was not a big deal. And one of the A/C in the living didn't work but again we kept the doors open so this too wasn't an issue for us. However, the barbeque grill was a mess (left over fish skin burnt on). It was out of gas, though this was quick replaced. The barbeque overall was in very poor working condition and our private chef was not even able to use it for one of our dinners. We found that the the kitchen utensils could use updating and some attention (e.g., all the knifes we dull and require sharpening).
