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.
The villa is located down a private gated road from the Baie Rouge Beach public entrance. Take advantage of the proximity to this fantastic beach only steps from Maison de Reve.
The placement of the six bedrooms creates a sense of privacy and tranquility. Two are off the main living room; two on the lower level and two in private casitas. Its an ideal arrangement for multigenerational families, large groups of friends or corporate retreats.

The house was wonderful, we really enjoyed our stay in the house. The only thing that might have been better was to clean the swimming pool more often. The Island and the people was beautiful and very nice. Everybody in our family loved the holiday and we would recommend it for others to go there.
We went with all employees in our small company to set a plan how to develop until 2022.
The premises was perfect for our purpose, it grew us tighter and we used the fantastic kitchen to make food in the mornings and in the evening.
Our housekeeper Lilly was an absolute star. Friendly and very helpful.
What could be improved is the sound-system, it did only partly worked (two loudspeaker was silent)
The original booking service was seamless and accommodating of our day constraints, the selection of villas was great too. But what really did it for us was the concierge Emma that took care of us every step of the way. The trip was a surprise bday trip for my wife so she gave great recommendations for our group of 12 people, and made the arrangements for all accommodations a breeze. Love that we actually got to meet her upon arrival and that everything turned out as planned. Having her check on us daily was an extra special surprise too. I don't know if all concierge's are as great as Emma, but if not, they need to take lessons from her! Oh yeah, and the house was superb. What we arrived to was actually reflective of what was found in pictures and online.
Our family enjoyed a 10 day Thanksgiving Holiday at Maison de Reve. We arrived with children and grandchildren. The villa was perfect. It allowed us to be together but also afforded wonderful space indoors and out. We have been coming to St. Martin for many years and this is the 3rd time our family has joined us for a holiday. To be able to prepare our traditional feast was something that was very important to us. The kitchen was very well equipped and finding our supplies was easily accomplished at the Gourmet Marche and Carrefour. Your staff was accommodating and responsive. Our housekeeper Lili was lovely and took wonderful care of our rooms.
I would say that overall it was a fantastic experience!!! The attention provided by Julie Zefrani during the booking process was outstanding. Emma Brooks also provided excellent service. The quality of the villa surpassed our expectations. It was very beautiful, luxurious, clean and well maintained. The pool was so amazing...a perfect place to relax.
There are 3 observations that I want to point out in order to make the stay at this property truly perfect:
1) There were too many small cockroaches in the kitchen area. Every time that we opened a drawer we found them and had to clean every utensil before using them (forks, knifes, dishes).
2) The door of the house was painted very recently before our arrival so many times we got our hands and clothes dirty and damaged with the fresh paint.
3) The water volume in the showers was very low.
We would definitely return to this property and have already recommended it to many friends.
Thank you for a memorable vacation!!!!
