Why Kim Gilbert chose Pelican Key
You will love the views of the Caribbean Ocean - the house has such a good feel, you never want to leave
What makes this Villa unique
Love the private pool overlooking the Caribbean. The location is also fantastic, close enough to all the action in Simpson Bay (you can walk to the Red Piano, Bon Appetite, the Hollywood Casino), but far enough away to enjoy some quiet relaxation.

Fantastic villa - gorgeous view
We absolutely loved our stay at this villa. The photos are realistic - it really is that amazing, especially the view. Having a private pool to relax in in the evening was beyond compare. The information regarding restaurants and beaches in the binders at the villa was very helpful. The kitchen is very well stocked and extremely clean. We loved everything about our stay and hope to be back very soon.
A client for life!
Everything was exactly as advertised - No, that’s not correct - Everything was better than advertised!!
Had a wonderful stay and wouldn’t think of staying anywhere else on the island. We never wanted to leave the villa. The decor was lovely, and the view was spectacular.
Hi Elana: I am so glad that you enjoyed your time in St. Maarten and at Villa Velaire! Thank you for your wonderful review and for being such great guests! If your travels ever lead you back our way, I would love to have you stay with us again! Wishing you a great summer ahead! Kim
Amazing vacation at an amazing Villa!!!
Me and my husband just got back from an amazing vacation at Villa Velaire! Everything was perfect from the minute we got there until the minute we left! Thankfully the villa was only 10 minutes away from the airport so we got to enjoy our stay almost immediately after we landed. The villa is decorated beautifully and has all the amenities you could possibly want or need to make breakfast, lunch or dinner. The kitchen was stocked with more items than I have at my house at home! The keurig machine was a huge bonus for a coffee lover like me! The bedrooms and bathrooms were all decorated very nicely and also had everything you could ever need. The beds were large and very comfortable! The best thing about Villa Velaire is the view! As soon as you step into the villa, you can see outside to the private pool and the beautiful Caribbean sea! It is so peaceful to sit outside on the patio and watch all the boats come and go. The best thing is seeing all the cruise ships pass by at the end of the day! The villa is less than 5 minutes away from a really cool beach with a beach bar. There are TONS of restaurants, bars and shops within 5-10 mintues of the villa. There is also a grocery store/market right by the villa so you can pick up any items needed to keep at the villa during your stay. Villa Velaire exceeded our expectations and we have already been talking about when we can come back and stay here again. Wonderful experience all around!
Hi Meredith: I am so glad that you all had a nice time in St Maarten and at Villa Velaire! Thank you for being such wonderful guests and for such a great review! If you travels ever lead you back our way, please look us up, we would love to have you stay with us again!
Wishing you a fantastic Spring season!
Best Vacation for the third time
We enjoyed another fabulous stay at the Villa. This was our third time at the Villa, and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Each time we come to the island we rent a car and drive to one of the many beaches on the island. We love hanging out at Karakters, which is a hidden gem and one of our favorite spots in Simpson Bay! If you have a drink or have a breakfast, lunch or dinner (the food is fantastic) the beach chairs/umbrella are for free.
Orient Beach is also fantastic, since there is a constant sea breeze at this time of the year.
The Villa is oceanfront so there is a constant refreshing sea breeze. We would sit out in the morning for breakfast, enjoy the view, and take a dip in the pool. Then we have the same routine in the evening dip in the pool and cook out on the grill or you can go out to one of the many restaurants located in Simpson bay. Try the grilled lobster at Lees!
The Villa is in a perfect location; it is just a few minute drive to a lot of stores, restaurants and bars!
Hi Susan: It was so nice having you and Richard back with us again - always a pleasure!
Thank you again for being such wonderful guests and for the great review!
Have a great rest of your summer and hopefully we will talk soon,
All the best,
The ABSOLUTE BEST place to stay!! We will be back! Kim and staff do an AMAZING job!
I really can't say enough how wonderful our stay was here! From the moment we landed we were taken care of and the Villa was beautiful! It looks just like the pictures!! The view was amazing and hearing the waves every night just makes you so relaxed! The bed was comfortable, the kitchen stocked with any utensil you could need, and the pool outside was such a bonus!! Kim and her staff do an incredible job! We have traveled a ton and stayed at many VRBO's but this one was by far the best! Thank you Kim and company! We can't wait to come back and stay again on the beautiful paradise of St. Maarten!!!!
Hi Ty: I am so glad that you and Matt enjoyed your anniversary stay in St. Maarten at Villa Velaire! Thank you both for being such great guests and for the wonderful review!
If your travels ever lead you back out way, please look us up, we would love to have you stay with us again!
Wishing you both a great summer!
The best villa on St. Martin
This was our 5th trip to St. Martin. After staying at this villa last year we were so impressed with Kim and her staff that at the end of the 2 week stay we called her and booked this year's trip. To anyone who uses VRBO it is always a little bit of a crap shoot as to whether the photos actually represent the property or are 10 year old photos. Kim keeps this place up better than any we have used anywhere. It is hard to find an ocean front with your own private pool at an affordable price. This unit has it all. Both bedrooms are true master suites that adjoin the private massage room. It has indoor and outdoor dining rooms a modern living room and fully stocked kitchen. Kim's staff from your personal greeter who takes you from your rental car station to the villa, the maids who do a remarkable job to your pool boy are all discreet and professional. Kim even leaves you with a cell phone to use on the island so you don't get stuck with international call billing on your cell phone. The Wi-Fi works great so for those who feel; they must keep in touch you can. I am a senior contributor on both VRBO and Trip Advisor. I don't sugar coat my reviews. This is a villa you will love with an ownership and staff that take pride in this wonderful villa. Mike & Barbara. McMinnville, Oregon
Because of its stunning scenery, Pelican Key is a prized location for many residential homes and resorts. As you drive up along the main road (Billy Folly Rd), you will notice some of the most exclusive villas on the island.
