About Casey Johnson

Our first visit to Sint Maarten in October of 2008. After falling in love with the island, we began to search for a vacation home. We discovered 'Chateau Jolie Vue' in late 2009 and made a purchase. HGTV followed us on our search for an 'International House'! We purchased the home because it was in a great location, had plenty of room for our family and friends, and had the best view on the island! We bought it as a fixer-upper and knew we had a lot of work to do, but when it was finished it would be worth it. Now, we have built our dream house and enjoy traveling to the island frequently!

BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is AMAZING and the island is BEAUTIFUL. Took our parents and spent 7 days. We probably spent almost as much time sitting on the balcony as we did exploring the island. The views, breeze, and comforts of home make the villa the place you want to be! And you even get to hang out with the iguanas at the pool as they are there every day and hang out in the corner of the pool deck watching you swim or lay out in the sun. Kim Sha Beach is right at the bottom of the hill and although there are many beaches on the island, we never made it past that one. :-) Buccaneer Beach Bar on Kim Sha Beach, and Keanon (our waiter every time) was perfect for food, drinks and service! We ate at several restaurants and every one of them was great, no bad food anywhere. The owners have a list of their favorite beaches (of which we didn’t make it to), restaurants, activities, etc. and they are spot on! Will definitely go back and stay at Chateau Jolie Vue again.....hopefully this time next year!

Amazing Trip. the house wasa perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

Great location, amazing views, perfect layout. Beware of the hill. If you rent a vehicle you should consider a JEEP.

I would recommend this property to anyone.

Trip of a Lifetime! Views are Endless!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a trip of a lifetime for my wife and I (recently married). We had never experienced such a relaxing atmosphere and the Villa is just AMAZING!!! We sat out on the roof and balcony almost every night just to watch the wonderful sunsets! We actually created a video of our trip, feel free to check it out. You really get a feel of how wonderful the views are! We've already booked a return trip!!!

Do Yourself A Favor....Stay Here!!!!

  • 5 of 5

It's never easy choosing a vacation rental from a website, but we hit a home-run with this one. What an amazing home with breathtaking views of Simpson Bay, the airport, and the marina. We spent hours on the rooftop and the balconies with friends, enjoying the sunsets and watching the yachts and airplanes arrive and leave. The house, while high on a hill with ample privacy, is within walking distance of many of the best restaurants and bars on the island, and Kim Sha beach is at the bottom of the hill. We have found our home away from home on St. Maarten and will be staying at this property again and again.

Spectacular Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun! Your home is spectacular and fits our style perfectly. We spent many mornings out on the balcony drinking coffee and the same amount of evenings on the rooftop or balcony having a beer or a cocktail. The weather was really quite nice except for one windy day, and the island was as spectacular as it is every time we go down there. You will hear from us again, we would love to stay there again. We are thinking we'd like to bring our children down to stay. We have 6 kids and they would have a blast! Thanks for all of your help and for helping us have a spectacular vacation.

One word…VIEW!!!

  • 5 of 5

Having traveled to many destinations throughout the world and the Caribbean, few places can compare to the island of Sint Maarten/Saint Martin and Chateau Jolie View! Just like its namesake states, the views from the house are priceless. Kim Sha Beach, located at the bottom of the driveway was voted one of the most amazing sunsets in the world, and you have that sunset everyday here. We have rented this house a few times now at all times throughout the year and have had fabulous stays each time. The island is unlike anyplace you have ever been. In 38 square miles, you can pure beach bar it all the way to a white glove gala on a multi-million dollar mega yacht…all within walking distance!!! The crew at Ocean Explorers are the best on the island for diving and are right out your doorstep. Our favorite thing to do after a day of beaching or diving is to pick up some fresh catch from Skipjack's, ice down something good to drink and grill out on the porch while watching the boats come in and out of the harbor. The sounds from the activities below you on the beach make the perfect background music to an always changing "Jolie View" -The Payton's, Dallas, TX

Located in the heart and soul of Simpson Bay! Sits upon a cliff overlooking four countries and everything in between! Under a 3 minute walk down to Kim Sha beach were beach chairs await you! Grab a snack and frozen Piña Colada at Buccanear Beach Bar! Within walking distance to several grocery stores, fish markets, a pharmacy, two casinos, a movie theater, and over 75 restaurants/bars! The perfect location for everyone! Relax on the porch and enjoy watching the yachts go in and out of the Marina as the bridge goes up and down. Go scuba diving with Ocean Explorers located on Kim Sha Beach. Either cook dinner at the house or go out to eat at one of the many gourmet restaurants. Watch the sunset on the rooftop deck. Or rent a jeep and enjoy discovering some of the islands 38 beaches! And if that's still not enough to keep you busy, head to the Red Piano late night for dancing and Mojito's!
