Offering an expansive interior, stunning terrace and panoramic sea views, this exquisite villa in Terres Basses is one of our favorite St. Martin villas. Perfectly blending Caribbean hospitality and European sophistication, the island of St. Martin is an ideal choice for a memorable tropical getaway.
Backing onto the cliffs of Terres Basses, this home enjoys sweeping ocean views from its terrace and manicured grounds. Equally impressive is the lagoon-like pool thats chlorine free and includes a shallow end for children. During the day, relax with a cold drink on one of the decks many loungers while in the evening go for a soak under the stars in the hot tub located in the center of the pool and accessible via a wooden walkway. Serve meals alfresco under the covered dining area, then work off the calories in the fully equipped gym that includes cardio and weight machines.
Inside, the spacious interior features soaring ceilings, modern decor and tiled flooring throughout. The open-concept main living area opens up to the terrace through glass doors and boasts dramatic lighting, plush, neutral-toned furnishings and a flatscreen TV. The airy kitchen is fully equipped and includes a large center islanda chef and housekeeping service is also included in the rental.
Comfortably sleeping up to 10 guests, each of the villas four bedrooms have been individually decorated and offer king size beds, en-suite bathrooms and ocean views. A private guest house is just steps away from the main living area and includes a queen size bed with a private en-suite and TV.
Youll be just one minute away from the beach during your stay! Whether you choose to stretch out on the white platinum sand or go snorkeling, its sure to be an unforgettable experience. A 10-minute drive takes you into the capital city, Marigot, where youll find gingerbread houses and sidewalk bistros as well as boutique shopping and excellent dining.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Internet on the island can be inconsistent and signal strength is generally lower than in developed cities. As our guests in St. Martin, be prepared to work less and relax more.
Satellite television in St. Martin can be spotty so remember to set your DVR to record your favorite shows before leaving home.
This beautiful, resort style estate provides loads of luxury including a villa manager, who lives on the property. Not only does he manage your stay, he prepares breakfast for you and your guests every morning. A separate chef arrives to prepare your lunch and dinner.
The four main bedrooms face the ocean. The fifth bedroom is set in a private cottage in the garden, a perfect location for teenagers looking to get away from the buzz of the villa.
For the workaholic who still wants to enjoy the tropical setting, a roof-top office with 360 degree views and business center amenities, awaits your laptop. Additionally, a fully equipped state of the art gym (with ocean view) is available to help you manage the benefits of a private chef.

The Villa was perfect! The Views spectacular! The best of over five villas we have rented in the last seven years. I have always wanted to rent this villa because of the cliff setting. The breezes and the technology they are using not a person of our 9 person party complained about mosquitos! I might have seen two the whole week.
The Villa had so many spots to get away from the crowd, the gym, The Koi pond, the suites and the walking trails.
JP was great! It was our first time to rent with a chef and in the end it was about the same as eating out for breakfast lunch and dinner and soooo hassle-free and easy. Stephane did the evening dinners, Donna kept things spotless each morning with bed services, laundry and clean up from the prior evening fun!
Julio was perfectly on call with his services. We had a Diabetic whose insulin was out of whack, required a night in the hospital to stabilize. He got done what we needed!
Thank you all for a marvelous week!
This was our sixth visit to Belle Etoile. We have been to many villas around the world. This is the very best. Jean and his team are the very best. We ate all of our meals at the Villa, and they were outstanding. We are animal lovers and adore the dogs at the villa. They are very well trained and are well behaved. The must be high-quality and excellent people. The property is well-maintained and they have had the same qualities staff for years. We will be back many times in the years to come.
When we first walked into the Villa, we realized Belle Etoile was more beautiful that we had imagined. It was the perfect vacation experience for our family of 11. JP and Donna took such good care of us. The food was delicious and the villa was very clean. The location was beautiful. Hopefully we will be able to return.
Villa was very comfortable and well appointed. Bedding was super comfortable. JP was very helpful and attentive to our needs. I must say that for the time of year and the caliber of home the Villa was understaffed. Cups, bottles, ash trays were never cleaned or refreshed. the table was not usually set before meals. The cook was sweet and kind, but seemed inexperienced with what would be basic skills for a chef. JP had to wear several hats to keep the kitchen running as did I. Also, when our son had to leave unexpectedly, due to a death in his wives family, their room was stripped of bedding, towels and toiletries. We still had several nights at the villa.
Amazing villa, great house manager Jean Phillipe, very clean well appointed. Wonderful pool, Jacuzzi, location, a near perfect property. Only one substantial problem. The air conditioning in the living room is not connected and the house manager commented that it's not effective. So at this juncture the home is NOT fully air conditioned. The bedrooms, kitchen , gym, and office are air conditioned, and effectively, but the main sitting area is not. It gets very warm inside. There is a nice ocean breeze so outside sitting is bearable . However, at nearly 3000 dollars per night off season and $42,000. Per week high season, this must be attended to. It's very solvable. Put three AC units on the living areas.
