Le Rocher is a private oasis within one of the exclusive gated communities of Terres Basses, on the French side of St-Martin. High on a hill, the setting, with its manicured grounds and view, is spectacular. The entrance is set in a tropical garden with tall palms and colorful plantings. Stone walkways lead up to the picturesque entrance reminiscent of Mediterranean estates. A beautiful carved door, in an enclosed courtyard, leads you into the villa and its panoramic views. The villa overlooks almost 360 degrees of St-Martin. The full expanse of Simpsons Bay Lagoon, the Caribbean Sea, the beautiful green island mountains and the outer islands of Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Kitts Nevis spread before you like a magnificent painting. From sunrise to sunset, it is breathtaking.
The completely remodeled interior and exterior spaces, spread over 10,000 square feet of eclectic French West Indies elegance, blending a contemporary attitude with exotic touches. Beautiful arched windows, high vaulted ceilings and built-in banquettes create an old world Caribbean charm. Comfortable furnishings define the dining and lounging areas throughout the open plan. Interesting textures, patterns and colors in soft grey and blue, gold and cream accent the dark woods. Collectables and object dart complement the dcor. The interior spaces and covered loggias flow seamlessly with the exterior. A French country style professional kitchen opens to the view and the tropical breezes. It is an inviting place to enjoy the efforts of a private chef.
The outdoor rooms are simply amazing; from a huge outdoor living room to the spacious pool terrace, centered on a gorgeous infinity pool, providing options for enjoying the beauty of the island. An outdoor kitchen and table provide a relaxed setting for al-fresco dining. Terracotta and limestone floors flow throughout the inside rooms to the outside rooms and terraces. Up a stone path lies an observation deck for viewing Caribbean sunrises and sunsets.
The four bedrooms are dotted on the hillside accessed via a stone path. The private layout creates a perfect place for large families and groups of friends to vacation together. The 700 square foot master suite is spectacular. A private terrace opens to amazing views; the large en-suite bathroom features a natural rock tub plus indoor and outdoor showers. A unique rock tunnel leads you to three more bedrooms all with stunning views, private outside seating and beautiful en-suite bathrooms in mosaic tiles. The mood of each room is romantic and tropical. The villa also has a small gym plus access to a private tennis court and marina.
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.
Set high on a hill, Le Rocher commands a unique 360-degree view. Every location in and outside the villa offers a spectacular visual. The breezes are amazing and keep the bugs at bay.
The master suite, situated on the main living level, is an oasis of solitude and peace. The other three bedrooms are located below the main house, dotted on the hillside. Although the villa is perfect for multigenerational families, the lower level bedrooms are not ideal for individuals with mobility issues.
Boasting a larger interior living space, open from the kitchen to the living room and into the connecting TV room, this space is cooled by the larger sliding glass doors and ceiling fans.

Shane, our Villa specialist was wonderful and the villa was beautiful. Our concierge, Jasmine was wonderful. We had a truly awesome vacation. Thank you so much!
Outstanding service from the first email till the end. Very professional and highly trained staff. Amazing villa, even better than we expected. It's our 4th trip to St. Martin and the second stay on the villa. Le Rocher is the "rock" by all means with perfect location, view and privacy. Thank you Luxury Retreats for everything, we had the best vacation ever.
Le Roche was everything that we had hoped for it was even better in person. The photos of the view did not do it justice. Georgina the house keeper was such a pleasure she was extremely helpful and very friendly she made our trip even more enjoyable. the house is perfectly situated on the cliffs overlooking Marigot the Sunrises were spectacular. The house itself was perfect for 4 couples with each having a kings size bed, en suite bathroom, and each having a spectacular view from their private balcony. We are all chefs and the kitchen and outside grill area were set up perfectly and well equipped. The villa was just remodeled and everything was spot on the layout was great for both privacy and everyone gathering all at once. Perfect vacation and house. We already have plans on visiting next year.
