Though, the villa is very private, and it is surrounded by a wonderful lush tropical garden.

Just returned home from spending 18 days at this beautiful villa !! Had a wonderful time !! This is the second year in a row that we stayed in this great villa . This unit is very clean inside and out , can easily handle up to six adults due to fact it has 3 bebrooms and two inside baths and one outdoors shower . Two great outdoors sitting areas under roof and a beautiful pool . walking distance to fine food and beautiful beaches , only would need car if you wanted to explore island . We will be returning next year 😎
Positives are location and its proximity to the beach and the pool at the property. You can not have a better location. Basics are also in place-- air con, netting, washing machine. However, there are some significant points for improvement. House is quite dated inside: pillows are flat and do not look clean and need to be replaced, lounge chairs by the pool are moldy and we couldn't even use them, decor could use some updating as well, dishes and coffee maker are old. One of the big selling points for us was a ramp that leads to the property-- we have a little baby and needed a ramp for the stroller. However, the ramp was blocked off and we were simply told that is no longer functioning so we had to carry to stroller up and down the stairs a few times a day.
Additionally, there were some communication gaps. The cleaner was scheduled for Thursday of the week and she didn't show up. We inquired and only then were told that it's now the next day. No advance courtesy notice was given. There was also a problem with a boiler and communications around it were quite poor-- we were expected to wait at the property waiting for the plumber. The plumber also didn't show up and this cost us a whole day of holiday. Very little was done in terms of apology for this.
My wife and I just returned after two weeks at Villa Du Voyageur. The pictures on the website are accurate. The pool is beautiful and private. The villa is very well appointed, comfortable and safe. It was a perfect home during our vacation. The villa is located a five minute walk to the village, which provides access to a number of restaurants and a new and improved grocery store (Casino) as well as the beach. To the extent we had any questions or concerns, Frank and Nathalie were incredibly responsive and helpful. They are sincerely nice people and making their acquaintance was an added bonus. We have stayed in St. Martin on seven prior occasions, often at significantly greater expense, and we have never had such a relaxing and enjoyable experience. We could not recommend Villa Du Voyageur more highly. We will be back.

This is an amazing villa. It wasperfectly spacious for the 4 of us and would have been fine for 6 people since there was a third bedroom we didn’t use. The villa had everything we needed to make dinner on a few occasions including a propane grill. Frank and Nathalie were very welcoming and helpful and even came to take care of the pool midweek. They also provided a lot of information on what to do in the area as well as other things like car rental etc. The villa is in a gated community that has many shops, bars and restaurants and they are all very good. The beaches that you have access to all have bars and restaurants along them with chair/umbrella rentals. We rented a car to do some exploring and although the rest of the island also has interesting things to do and beaches to see Orient bay(where this villa is located) is one of, if not the nicest beach. All in all we had an amazing time and will definitely be returning.
We just came back from a wonderful 1-week getaway at the Villa Du Voyageur, and we're missing it already. It was an amazing vacation, and we have Frank and Natalie to thank for it, as they went out of their way to ensure a comfortable stay for us. We traveled with our 5 year old and 6 months old sons, and had all the things we needed right there in our beautiful villa. The owners provided a baby crib, towels, pool toys and even bought a brand new high chair when we mentioned we might need one for the baby. They also arranged for a cleaning lady to come midweek, which was a nice touch. We couldn't have a more comfortable and smooth stay.
The villa was calm, spacious and beautiful in every way, with a pool just outside the door, full kitchen, nice A/C, TV and wireless internet. The pictures really don't capture all the beauty of the place, it is very roomy, with huge cathedral ceilings and nice decor throughout. It even had an outdoor shower (in addition to 2 indoor baths) that we used after we came back from the beach. Our 5-year old had lots of fun playing in the pool every day, we rarely had to think about other entertainment for him while we were in the house. And the outdoor dining area is simply gorgeous!
The place is very private, and is located very close to the Orient bay. It made for really nice relaxing evening strolls down to the Orient Bay village and further down the beach. We did not get to try all the restaurants over there, but Le Piment made a great impression. Oh and what a delight it is to start a day with a short stroll down the morning sun lit, peaceful lane to get a cup of latte and freshly baked baguette from the cafe down the street...
It is hard to find the right words to describe this piece of paradise. Frank and Natalie - thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sharing your lovely place and for making it such a memorable trip. We will surely be back!
