Belle Etoile is a stunning estate villa with a French Caribbean style. It is quietly grand, yet a comfortable and relaxing space filled both inside and out. It is gorgeously landscaped and dramatically positioned on a cliff just above the sea; very private. The panoramic views are filled with limitless shades of blue from the pool that appears to flow directly into the sea and beyond to Anguilla and the horizon. You can see Marigot and Creole Rock in Grand Case. Sunsets and nights are romantic perfection. This is a perfect villa for tropical weddings and equally suited to getaways with good friends.
The shallow entry, heated pool features a unique Jacuzzi floating like an island in the water; accessed over an Epi wood bridge. Edged in native stone, the pool blends naturally into the landscape. Other amenities include a pool table, fully equipped gym and office with 360 degree views.
The interiors are spacious and stylish. Tropical shutters in dark wood trim the doors and windows. Columns and arches define the multiple lounging and dining areas, all furnished with high end furnishings. Rattan, teak and upholstered pieces with colorful fabrics all mix beautifully. The color scheme is refined naturals accented with beautiful tropical lime, hot pink and taupe. Well curated art and accessories compliment the dcor. The state of the art chefs kitchen is tastefully appointed in bleached woods, black granite and high end appliances. The space is open to the views. The villa comes with a private chef from morning to evening and property manager to facilitate your stay.
Four of the five bedrooms face the ocean. Each is a large, airy suite with interior private seating. The large spa style bathrooms feature tumble marble tiles with mosaic trim, walk in showers and high end touches. One bedroom is set in a private cottage.
Although secluded, you are close to amenities. It is a short 2-minute drive to Baie aux Prunes beach and only 5 minutes to new culinary stars; Le Sand, Dreams and Mezza Luna. A further 10 minutes and you arrive at the charming French capital of Marigot with restaurants, shops, historic buildings and the Creole Market. Only 10 minutes from the airport and 25 minutes to either Grand Case or Philipsburg.
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.

6th visit; good as ever
Great villa; great staff, good food, and we love the dogs.
Most Relaxing Vacation ever!
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.
I can't put into words how perfect this vacation was.
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.
beautiful villa, spectacular view
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.
