Property needs updates but view is amazing. Unfortunately one traveler’s passport was missing. We checked out and filled a police report. We were invited to come back and look for the passport. We were told that since the place had not yet been clean out of courtesy we could stay until our rebooked flight the next day. Upon waking up we were told that we should pay for an extra night. We did not bring any bags back on and stayed in town till well after 3AM. We met with the manager at 6:30 am. Since most of our party left we would have made more reasonable accommodations for one night had the owner said he wanted to charge us for the extra night. What appeared to be a nice gesture now feels like a blackmailing. Not a good experience.
You extra night stay was never authorized by owners or management as a courtesy.
You promised to pay, and then left the property without paying.
Sad to say you and fellow guests left the Villa in total disarray.
We have filed the report with VRBO, and have also submitted sample photos of the condition of the villa after your departure.
We wish you good luck in your future travels.
Pretty much love everything about the villa! The best location, easy access to Philipsburg for restaurants, shopping, and beaches. French side is a short drive away also. Property manager as well as owners were easily accessible. Wonderful vacation! Thank you.
VIEWS, VIEWS, VIEWS!!
My family (of 5) recently stayed at fleur de mer. The pictures give a completely accurate idea of what the location looks like, no surprises. What a great location, the views of the ocean are amazing, views from every bedroom. We never used the air conditioning, the breeze off the ocean keep us cool during the night. The main patio is a dream; we spent most of our time there staring out at the Atlantic. The villa has pretty much everything you need, as well as some great extra’s like pool towels and chairs for the beach. There is a ton of space, which is nice when when you come with a big group. Phillipsburg is only a 6 min drive away and the nearest grocery store, Mr K’s is literally a 2 min drive (try his ham and cheese croissants, so good). Marie the property manager was GREAT, always available when needed if anything came up. The owner is also very accessible and gave us an introductory phone call a week before we came, really great touch!
Some things to note: The island is still recovering from the hurricane, but most of the beaches, at least on the Dutch side are back in action. French side seems to still be struggling a bit, in Grand Case some structures that look pretty rough. With that in mind we still had an amazing time., we spent quite a few days at the pool, you really do not want to leave that view.
Mosquitoes were pretty aggressive while we were there, and due to the open concept of the villa we got bit pretty bad. The villa kindly provides repellant, but if you allergic like my sister is, you definitely want to make sure you have your medication with you.
Bring a sweater! The breeze is cooling during the day, and can get a little chilly at night, but that may be due to the time of year.
The accommodations are so nice, the views are spectacular and we are within 5 min. from stores etc..
There were 6 of us and there was plenty of room to not feel crowded. The pool was awesome. Always clean and refreshing in between sunning 😎� The kitchen has all the necessities as well as the bedrooms, bathrooms and family/dining room. One place of notewothiness is Chesterfields restaurant, about an 8 minute drive. We went there once on a recommendation from the property caretaker and went a second time by choice 🤠� And, speaking of the caretaker, what a pleasant, personal and professional person. She was always avalible, knowledgeable and Johnnie on the spot. We were also impressed with the owner of the property who contacted us a couple of times to make sure that we were pleased with everything and if there was anything we needed. This is day 4 and we're about ready to leave and we're reminiscing the memories already. Thank you to the caretaker and owner for making this a special time for us.
Wonderful Way to Have a Caribbean Vacation
Everything was spacious and clean; there were plenty of towels and linens; even a cooler and beach chairs for our use. The porch had the beautiful view you see in the photos. Marie was a great onsite host and was very welcoming and accommodating. Plenty of privacy here yet we felt connected to the owner if we needed to contact him for any thing at a moment's notice.
Villa is located in an exclusive area of Dutch Sint Maarten.
Private and secluded, yet only two minutes away from downtown shopping and fine dining both on the Dutch and French side. Great place to enjoy both worlds!
