La Bastide combines a contemporary attitude with the exoticness of Moroccan design, perfectly suited to Caribbean lifestyle. Through the gates, you arrive in a private tropical paradise. Lush gardens and beautiful columned entry welcome you into a stylish villa with a breathtaking view. As your eye wanders through the cool interiors to the covered terrace, your eye draws you to the azure Caribbean Sea and brilliant blue sky. Between the interior and sea is a fabulous, very unique double pool that combines a large horizontal infinity pool set with a beautiful oversized vertical lap pool that almost disappears into the sea. Surrounding this oasis is a glorious garden filled with palms, tropical shrubs and flowers.
The outdoor spaces seamlessly flow from the interiors to the large poolside terrace, visually connected by soft taupe and faux wood tiles underfoot and beautiful columns that separate the covered loggias from the open deck. The spacious terraces provide lots of cover for al-fresco dining and lounging.
Each interior room has a sea view. The large open plan great room, fully open to the terrace by floor to ceiling sliding glass doors, has a serene attitude. Comfortable seating in taupe with soft pops of color is accented with light woods and interesting accessories. Arched doors and windows add an exotic touch. The beautiful French country style kitchen looks out to the sea and the pool area. Its an inviting space for a professional or amateur chef.
Three equal size bedrooms are on the upper level on either side of the great room each with a sea and garden view. The attitude is softly modern in rich neutral tones accented with interesting art, charming touches and comfortable furniture. The en-suite bathrooms are simply beautiful in exotic mosaic tiles, granite counter tops, flattering lighting and stylish cabinetry. The very private fourth bedroom is on the lower level with a large private terrace; the view encompasses the lush garden. The colorful en-suite bathroom is outfitted in exotic Moroccan blue tiles.
You are close to amenities. Two minutes to Baie Nettles culinary stars Le Sand, Dreams and Mezza Luna. Wonderful gourmet food and wine stores are just a short drive in Cupecoy along with the Starz Casino and fine dining options Escape and Temptation. A short 15-minute drive and you are at the International airport or the nightlife of Maho. The French Capital, Marigot, is only 15 minutes from the villa where you can enjoy Duty Free shopping, boutiques, bakeries and the Creole Market.
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.
La Bastide has a very unique double pool. The larger pool is an infinity pool surrounded by an expansive sun deck. Just beyond is an oversized vertical lap pool, perfect for your morning exercise.
The fourth bedroom is on the lower level with private access and its own terrace. The layout works well for parents or grandparents who want quiet time.
A SONOS wireless sound system allows you to listen to your music from your iPhone, Android phone or your tablet. Simply download the SONOS app and you can be listening to your music from the multiple zones both inside and outside the villa.

Overall, we had a terrific experience and vacation at the villa, the villa itself though could use some much needed TLC. The walls are in much need of a paint job. For the price that we paid for the 2 week rental, our group thought that there would be more high end furnishings as well as kitchen supplies. The coffee pot was too small and leaked, there were no cutting boards, or sharp knives for food prep, the appliances were old and stained. I think that the owner of the villa would benefit his guests if he were to invest a little more into such simple things as mentioned above.. The maid Thelma was terrific as well as the pool guy and Angus the groundskeeper. Hassan and Peter our drivers for the 2 weeks were fantastic.
The house clearly has undergone some investment
The villa is beautiful, quiet and relaxing. The open kitchen is great for cooking and entertaining and the open air dining area was a fantastic place to gather for family meals. The pool was great for the kids and adults. A perfect set up for families and groups who can enjoy the open spaces, living room, deck and pool and then have the privacy of their own room with private bath. The location is convenient to many activities and the close proximity to some of the best beaches was great.
