A dramatic, winding hillside road delivers you to Terrasse de Mer, set high above the beach and civilization. Its an exotic and private oasis. The moment you enter the large courtyard; you are in the midst of a stunning 360-degree view. Behind you are neighboring mountains; in front of you is Anguilla, so close you can touch it. Enter the front door and a brilliant, variegated scene flows before you, painted in greens and blues. Within your scope are the verdant island peaks, Baie Rouge Beach and Marigot with its poetic marinas. The sightline stretches to Creole Rock in Grand Case and beyond to the Atlantics horizon. The sapphire sea is everywhere.
Expansive terraces and covered spaces, for dining and lounging, surround the beautiful heated pool perched at the terraces edge. The natural vistas from the pool create a secluded atmosphere. A wall of sea side columns anchors the view and frames Anguilla. Parallel to Anguilla, above Baie Rouge Beach, is a long terrace with two gazebos, each with sliding glass doors; one with a Jacuzzi. The villas red zinc roof and white walls create a peaceful Caribbean backdrop to the natural beauty.
The spacious main living area, featuring new furniture, is comfortable and stylish. The view is amazing! The dcor throughout the interior has a romantic, elegant attitude in white, cream and Indonesian teak accented with charming exotic accessories. Just off the main room, the inviting French county kitchen looks out to the sea connecting the chef to nature. Dine inside off the terrace or at the high kitchen counter. Work in the office space off the living room or hit the private gym.
The four bedrooms with en suite bathrooms are equal size and air conditioned. Two are connected to the main house. One is off the terrace and the other in a private casita off the courtyard. The bathrooms are spacious with garden or sea views.
You are secluded yet close to amenities. Its a short drive to Baie Rouge Beach and a few minutes to Baie Nettles new culinary stars; Le Sand, Dreams and Mezza Luna. In 10 minute you reach the charming French capital of Marigot with restaurants, shops and galleries, historic buildings and the Creole Market. Drive 25 minutes to Grand Case, 10 minutes to the international airport and 30 minutes to Philipsburg's shopping haven.

Beautiful villa, perfect vacation
We were there with some friends and family (7 people in all) in May 2017 and Terrasse de Mer was perfect for everyone. There is enough space for everyone to have their own space, both inside and out. The kitchen and dining areas were more than ample for everyone to cook/eat. The villa is close enough to pretty much anything there is to do: jet skis, beaches, patisseries/boulangeries, restaurants, etc., but private enough and quiet at night. All of the bedrooms are essentially the same with the exception of the completely separate bungalow. The pool is wonderful, the hot tub is great, and the views are spectacular. Paula takes care of everything at the house and is a wonderful woman, so kind and helpful. We've been here twice now and wouldn't hesitate to return with a large group.

Comfortable, convenient, with a beautiful view!
Terasse de Mer is a beautiful 4-br villa overlooking Baie Rouge in Terres Basses. Two of the BRs are connected directly to the house, 1 is accessible from the outside patio, and the 4th is a completely separate cottage. The kitchen is large and well-equipped w/ a gas stove and plenty of seating. There's a large tv and in/out sound system. There's a large couch and plenty of places to sit. The large pool is heated and there's also a small hot tub. It's not an infinity pool, but you can hear the waves from the beach below, and the outdoor space is spectacular. The only suggestion would be to add an umbrella or 2 for shade. The bedrooms are comfortable and large, each with a tv, but no outdoor showers. The wifi is better than average and worked all over the house and outside as well. Paula is a lovely woman who helps with the house and left us as many beach towels as we needed. For a family requiring multiple bedrooms, this house is perfect: comfortable, private, the view can't be beat!
Another Great Trip to SXM
We have rented several villas on St. Martin and Teressa De Mer is one of our favorites. The vies of Bay Rouge is one of the best in the Caribbean. The house is very functional and the pool deck is large. The furnishings are a little antiquated but serviceable. I would opt for the view and the excellent layout over and newer house with no view. Paula the house keeper is the best. It was just my wife and I on this trip and she respected our privacy. I would definitely rent this villa again.
Experience met or exceeded our expectations.
We have been fortunate to have stayed at many different villas in St. Martin and other destinations. All have been at the top end with incredible views but this one is hard to beat. The panoramic view of the Caribbean, Anguilla, Marigot, and the mountains of St. Martin is second to none. Add the night time view of the Anguilla lights shimmering in the distance and the lights of Marigot, and you have an unbeatable combination.
However, from the spectacular view, the villa is a bit of a step down. Let me say that most people would say I am being picky, and they might be somewhat right. For me, at this price the villa should have had some updating years ago. The kitchen is large but needs updating as does the furniture in the dining room, living room, and bedrooms. The best way to describe it is serviceable but “tired." I left the best for last, Paula. She is the housekeeper and is a major deciding factor as to why we come back to this villa’s sister property Nid d'Amour. She is the BEST
