Notes:
This is your dream villa if you are looking for quality, modern amenities and THE BEST location taking advantage of the closeness of Orient Bay, falling asleep to the sound of rolling waves and waking up to birdsong. Don't look for your car keys to go to the beach or the village for dinner, and don't loose time cleaning your feet before getting back into your car to drive back from the beach, just WALK home and take an outside shower in the garden. Hardly ever too hot because of a small breeze but never too windy to sit outside, on the porch or on your upstairs terrace to gaze at the stars. Spend a relaxing time in the hot tub surrounded by family or friends. An excellent romantic getaway for just marrieds. (Present offered) Put some sugar in the birdfeeder and you will soon know all the visiting hummingbirds by name ! Be as surrounded by others or a secluded as YOU choose in just a couple of minutes. This villa is part of a small residence surrounded by tropical gardens

C'est la Vie..Magnifique

  • 5 of 5

Anna's home was the perfect place to retreat into seclusion, yet be close enough to enjoy the very beautiful Orient Bay beach area. Anna promptly met us upon arrival and provided a grand tour of the local area including the all important local short cuts as well as her home. She was warm and welcoming and we couldn't have asked for a better hostess.

Her home was clean, comfortable, well appointed and inviting. The back yard is private, relaxing and meant to be enjoyed. She was prompt in making sure a leaking AC unit was repaired and periodically checked in with us to ensure we were ok and enjoying ourselves. I would recommend Anna's home to anyone wishing to experience the charm and friendliness of SXM.

The location is extraordinary!! You are a short 100 yard walk along the local sidewalk to Orient Bay beach as well as the center of Orient Bay's town center. I highly recommend you consider joining Anna in Orient Bay for a wonderful vacation!!

Decent Accommodations but Missed Opportunities 3.5 stars

  • 3 of 5

We had a family of 5 stay for week before Christmas and enjoyed St. Martin immensely. The property was pretty good overall but nothing to get crazy excited about. It is difficult to find as no real address is published (on purpose by owner) so you have to call when you arrive to get "talked in". This would be fine but we are from the US so phone calls are not simple, and there is some language barrier due to heavy accents - it would be better to have some directions to give the taxi driver. The house itself is in fine shape but not well kept up or cleaned; several cockroach bodies, pool had small amount of algae (not a ton), hot tub water was a bit murky. Also, there was no welcome book that had information about the house or area (normal to have this, no?). The owner wanted to walk us around the area for a tour, but after traveling overnight for 16 hours an immediate walking tour didn't sound very appealing. A simple book with house info, maps of the area, store and restaurant info, wi-fi log in, how to work the crazy door locks, etc is an easy thing to have. The wi-fi router works but is at least a couple years old and not consistent. Also, if you are used to 120V you better pick up some 208-120 converters because there is only one in the master bath so charging devices with 3 kids can be a battle. There is a washing machine for clothes but no dryer (this might be normal for the island but good to know). The house is about a 3-4 minute walk to the beach down a path so that was close enough but from the VRBO it sounded like it was closer. We bought some food at the local grocery and made simple meals for some of the days. There was enough kitchen items to do this but only if the meals are simple. Side note: Out of two of the bedrooms is a big, beautiful patio (no ocean view) but there is no furniture on it so it was something that was definitely missed out on. If you stay here you can definitely have a nice time but there are a lot of missed opportunities so it was not "amazing" like it could be.

Owner's Response: Dear, I m really sorry that your stay was not as successul as i thought , since you told me you where quite happy...Its usually easy to set things right when you actually do tell me since i was right nextdoor ... I did indeed offer to show you around to the beach and the village upon arrival but i would have done it just as well a bit later or the next day of course. I sent you a road description of a whole page which is the only way to do it since most of the roads do not have names in St , Martin and there is no road passing in front of the house which is why it is so quiet, yet central The pool is cleaned twice a week and the hot tub once, there was heavy rain that week so indeed it is possible that there was something less than perfect about that, just telling me i could have solved it ofcourse We are in the hot and humidCaraibean so those things go fast. But can be helped. I takes me 1,34 minutes to walk to the beach , of course everyone has there own pace... I m sorry you had a rough time locking up, in most houses the trick is to lift the handle before turning the lock and it usually does not seem to be a problem. Of course i m always ready to show you again in case you have a problem The wifi code and instructions were all provided in the contract , of course wifi is not the same speed as in the US since we are on an island, and this has nothing to do with the router but with the actual speed of connection available on the island, I pay for the highest possible speed ,and skype e mail whatsapp netflix etc. usually work fine. there was an issue however with a broken cable between St Martin and San Juan and I offered to let you use the other provider which i have in my villa, jbut then the problem was already solved again We do have 220 volt on French St Martin, remember this is a different country and not the US, simply asking for more adaptors would have solved this problem. My aim is to make your holiday as good as possible and i m always ready to help with any issues and it helps if i m told about them so I can actually solve them.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous St Martin rental. Just returned from 8 wonderful days. Location is perfect just a few minutes walk to beach and to shops and restaurants, but still very quiet and private. Nice to be able to have wine with a wonderful French meal and not have to worry about driving. Anna, the owner of the villa, greeted us on arrival and gave us a grand tour of Orient Bay. She is extremely helpful and very welcoming. The house is very comfortable with excellent AC, refreshing pool and everything we needed. We toured the entire island, but enjoyed Orient Bay best. Nicest beach with quiet places or full service restaurants. We kayaked out to Green Cay on several occasions for excellent snorkeling. Excellent windsurfing on Galion Bay (SXM Surf), but cash only and beware Westin time share scammers who flag down cars and give you scratch cards with winning numbers. To summarize, fantastic place to relax on St Martin. Can't recommend more highly and looking forward to repeat visit.

WONDERFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a wonderful vacation on St. Martin. This villa was a perfect choice for my family of four. Plenty of room, extremely clean and in the perfect location. Short, easy walk to beach, restaurants and shops. The owner was wonderful to work with both before and during our stay. She greeted us upon arrival and walked us to the beach and restaurants giving us a tour of the area. She checked on us periodically throughout our stay making sure we had everything we needed and offfered very helpful advise about the island. It was just like having a personal travel agent on site! We will rent from Anna again and again. Also if renting a car I highly recommend NoNo Car Rental. They pick you up at the APO, drive you to the villa and vice versa for your day of departure. And, Bubbles Dive Shop is amazing for snorkeling or scuba! Can't wait to go back!

Great location and villa!

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding vacation destination! The beach is a couple minutes walk down a paved path. The village is a few minutes and provides great dining, bars, groceries and wonderful morning coffee & pastries. The villa is very comfortable with a magnificent courtyard. It is very private and cozy with a pool and hot tub. But the privacy and lush greenery make it a wonderful relaxing place. We've stayed at many beach places and this one tops them all! We can't wait to return.

Anna the owner lives next door and is a wealth of information. She helped arrange snorkeling tours, cabs, dinner reservations, etc. An outstanding host!
