Turtle Nests vibrant tropical garden entry sets the stage for a specular Caribbean view. Set on a slight rise at the edge of Baie Lounge Beach, the villa delivers a mesmerizing panoramic vista painted in sapphire and turquoise. The island of Saba rises in front of you followed by Statia, Kitts and Nevis flowing into the western horizon. In the distance are ships, yachts and sailing boats. Planes quietly descend. It is pure entertainment, yet a serene oasis.
Stylish and contemporary, the architectural design takes advantage of the view and tropical atmosphere. Interiors and exterior spaces seamlessly flow inside to outside. Glass doors disappear into the walls. Sand color tiles flow throughout the house seamlessly connecting to the beach. Large covered terraces provide generous seating for dining and lounging.
At the shoreline, you are steps from the beach and the stunning infinity pool edging the sea. The expansive pool terrace is filled with oversized daybeds and loungers for total relaxing. The gazebo at oceans edge is a great place to gather with bar style seating, dining space and barbeque.
The open plan interiors harmoniously blend with the exteriors. The look is elegantly sleek yet comfortable; a beautiful mix of contemporary style with elegant old world Caribbean touches like the handcrafted shuttered doors and windows. The spacious formal living and dining area seamlessly connects with the beautiful modern, well equipped kitchen. A soothing color scheme blends cream, taupe, and white with pops of vibrant colors. High vaulted ceilings create an airy feel. For entertainment, choose a flat screen TV with Netflix, Wi-Fi or the outdoor sound system.
The four bedrooms are of equal size; two at each end of the main house, all with sea views. Two have private terraces. Spacious and serene, each rooms dcor blends a neutral palette with vibrant art and accessories. Spa style bathrooms, in taupe and creamy tones, have walk in showers and designer accessories. One has an outdoor garden shower.
You are secluded, yet very close to amenities. You are steps from Baie Longue Beach. Its a short drive 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 and Philipsburgs shopping haven. A mere 10 minutes to the international airport.
Please Note: Long Bay Beach may be affected by shifting seasonal currents and weather patterns. For the best swimming renters are recommended to walk down the beach near the La Samanna resort where the waters are more protected.

Very good experience as imagined through our previous expectations with Luxury Retreats!
I've stayed in villas in Terres Basses on three other occasions, and Turtle Nest was my favorite so far. Everything that I wanted was in one place (beach, pool, entertainment space, easy access to points on the island). My family and friends loved the experience as well, and we're all looking forward to visiting again in the future.
However, there were several mechanical problems while we were there that were not resolved during our stay. We had electrical issues with the roofing and lighting on the patio and the microwave that weren't repaired, internet access was not consistent, none of the televisions in the bedrooms worked, and the television access in the great room area did not work for the last 2-3 days that we were there (it was working again just as we were checking out).
The villa was beautiful! We really enjoyed easy access to the beach and our very own private pool. There was ample space for all 8 of us.
Turtle Nest is a truly magical place with its vast and spacious grounds and the individual villas that accommodated our entire family. We loved the amazing views that allowed us to enjoy sunrises and sunsets sitting by the ocean and enjoying some rum punch, beer or champagne. The decor of the villa was also something we really enjoyed since the contemporary and modern vibe is something our entire family loves. The pool most definitely was the highlight for the family and we spent most of our time cooling off in the gorgeous blue water and enjoying the wonderful view of the ocean.
Perfect for adults-everyone has privacy AND wonderful indoor and outdoor space for gathering the crowd.
We enjoyed the solitude and beauty of the location - we had some bumps in the road as far as things being scheduled appropriately but Jasmine quickly helped to get things resolved.
