Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Orient Bay - Villa Côté Sud - Orient Bay

Luxury villa, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The Villa Côté Sud offers peaceful privacy and serenity at an immaculate home for the discerning travelers of French Saint Martin. Allows 'au naturel'.

The tranquil Villa Côté Sud rides the gentle curves of rolling green hills overlooking an expanse of azure and sapphire blue sea beyond. This private hillside retreat boasts fantastic views from the pool and terrace, from almost every room of the house. Côté Sud gives the opportunity for privacy, intimacy, independence and relaxation.

It is one of the best places to savour the serenity of Caribbean life on the French side of St Martin, inside your private three bedroom, two and a half bathroom villa and take in the relaxing, warm and friendly atmosphere. The French owners achieved an outstanding, peaceful ambience and harmony that you can feel everywhere in the house.

The villa is exquisitely decorated, has fine linens, glassware, handmade Italian tile baths and a terrace and deck with a very private swimming pool. The architectural style is Mediterranean, the interior is a perfect mix of Caribbean, European and Asian styles with exotic woods, leather, beautiful, handmade decorative pieces, and special terra-cotta floors throughout.

Situated on the hillside in French Cul de Sac, half way between Orient Bay and Grand Case, the Villa Côté Sud is a peaceful oasis. The view is amazing, there is a calm and tranquil ambience; the location is far from any noise of cars and roads. This home has this special touch that makes it unique, and a truly wonderful villa experience.

Very private swimming pool, deck and lounge (allows 'au naturel'). A/C in every room. Three air-conditioned bedrooms (two king, one double bed). Two bathrooms with hair dryer.

About Daphnée and Gilles KELAIDITES

We are a family of 5. We live near Paris in France and work in the events business.

Daphnée and Gilles KELAIDITES purchased this villa in 2010

Why Daphnée and Gilles KELAIDITES chose Orient Bay

We've been visiting Saint-Martin since 1997. We've rented several villas in different places before buying our owning one. We now definitely prefer to stay in a villa up on the hill with the great sea view, fresh air and almost no mosquitoes.

What makes this villa unique

We first loved the unique sea view from the villa, from Pinel island to Saint Barth with Orient Bay beach in the middle. The colors of the the sea are tremendous from dawn to dusk. We secondly enjoyed the architecture of the villa, having every room with a direct access to the terrace with its large swimming pool and its wide sea view. We also appreciated the location of the villa, close to the places we go to everyday: Pinel island, Orient bay beach , le Gallion beach, Grand Case restaurant area and Hope state shopping area.

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

Villa Cote Sud was a spectacular place to stay in St. Martin. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this our stay. We arrived on a late flight and was met at the villa by Greg who showed us around and where everything was located in the home. Everything worked perfect, from the appliances in the kitchen to all the electronics. There was English and French satellite TV (which I actually had fun watching as I'm learning French currently). The location is perfect. It's close to a grocery store that has everything you need, and it feels like it is literally 10 minutes away from everything, including Orient Beach, Anse Marcel, and Grand Case. Oh, and who can complain about having a private pool?! This is my #1 choice for any return to St. Martin and it makes me sad because now all the reviews are so positive, it may be hard to book, but that's for a reason. it IS the perfect place to stay. Thanks Gilles and Daphne!

Paradise on St. Martin

  • 5 of 5

I wish I could give this villa and its management more than 5 stars. We have stayed here five years and have already booked next year. It's private, perfectly located close to great restaurants in Grand Case and to Orient Beach. We were delighted with the new range in the kitchen and the new outdoor furniture. It is truly a wonderful experience year after year. It is amazing to speak with people who stay at the new Westin who spend way more money per night and have to pay to eat out every meal. We love the fact that we can stop at the Grande Marche in Cole Bay on our way to the villa from the airport and stock up on supplies for at least a few days. The new Super Marche in Marigot is closer and still carries everything we need (just a tad more expensive). For those day to day necessaries, Simply in Hope Estate is just great and extremely convenient. We have always had more than adequate bath/hand/beach/kitchen towels. Greg and Nelly take wonderful care of us, making sure that we have water, beer, toilet paper, paper towels, and coffee filters each visit. This year we also had bottles of body/hair gel and body lotion, small bars of soap, tissues, and a welcoming bottle of wine. They are lovely touches for a rental property. This is not a hotel, Joe. See previous review. I don't expect these amenities in a rental property. They are all just nice touches by nice people. We always shop for these things ourselves and always leave more than we found for people like you, Joe. My husband and I were the guests who stayed at this villa immediately before you, Joe. We left at least 2 and 1/2 rolls of toilet paper, 1/3 box of tissues, coffee filters, coffee, at least 5 bottles of water, vodka, etc. for people like you, Joe. Like Joe, we saw cat food in the laundry room when we arrived. Like Joe, we saw cats around the deck area of the villa. We have been coming to St. Martin 10 years. We always see "island kitties". They don't do anything to offend us, and they don't bother us. None of them was "mangy". Mosquitos - yeah, welcome to the islands, Mon. Get some insect repellant/insecticide, and you're good to go. We had one very minor issue this visit; we missed the old sound system. Greg contacted Gilles immediately, and Gilles contacted us to address it, asking us for additional feedback. What more could you ask of management and owners? You can please some of the people all the time, all people sometime, but not all people all the time.

Owner's Response: Hi Donna and Bill. Thanks for your review and thanks from returning every year. You are the perfect guests too. With people like you, our Managers Greg and Nelly, as well as Daphnée and I, want to go the extra mile to improve your stay from year to year. Best Daphnée and Gilles ps : I've wished you would be happy with new wireless speakers which allows to listen chill out music on the deck with a book and a nespresso under the palm tree shadow by the pool (my favourite place when my family is out for surfing). But I haven't realised you don't have the buletooth on your iPod. I'll sort that out next July.

Recent rental

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and pleasant décor, updated appliances. The view and landscaping in private back deck and yard is amazing and beautiful!! Loved having a totally private area. Wished that there were screens on all slider doors to let the beautiful breeze in. Mosquito's were a problem as well and the sick, mangy cat that kept coming in. Found cat food in the laundry room, disappointing. Obviously the previous renter was feeding it. Need for strong language concerning feeding strays. Also, when renting a villa of this level, it is very cheap to leave only half a paper towel roll and two half rolls of toilet paper, and no tissue. There were no extra and we had to go to the store within a day.

Owner's Response: Hi Joe, Thanks for your review and helping us to improve our guest experience. We are happy you had a nice stay in Villa Côté Sud and sorry for the small inconvenience with the mosquitoes, cats and the paper toilets. Villa Cöté Sud is certainly on the place in Saint-Martin having the less mosquitoes. But only a few of them can bother you especially at dawn and dusk. We advise our guest to close the sliding windows at dawn and dusk and use the ceiling fan or the living room conditionners during these short periods of time. We always remind to our guests not to feed the animals but we repect our guest privacy and don't look after them during their stay. > I'm going to ask our manager to remind it more clearly. Here is the list of what we ask the manager to provide you upon arrival, taking into account your are 2 persons : linen for your king bed 4 towels each 1 beach towel each 3 paper toilet rolls 3 tissue rolls Tea 10 Nespresso pods per person Coffee fiters Sugar,salt, pepper, vinager, olive oil Herbs, chilli pepper, oregano, nutmeg, papprika, cinnamon aluminium / clingfilm 1 bottle of water per person 1 bottle of beer per person Soap and shampoo in your bathroom 10 garbage bags Matches > I'm sorry our manager hasn't fullfilled our requests about paper toilets number of rolls to provide you with, > and we are going to increase the number of rolls per persons, not a problem > except the rolls, do you remind if something else was missing ? All the best Daphnée and Gilles

AS ADVERTISED

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently returned from this lovely villa and awesome week in St. Martin. The villa is as advertised and the pictures are right on. The following would be our pros/cons on the villa.

I will start with pros:

Very clean and well appointed. The location is wonderful and provides all the privacy you need.

Kitchen is American style and well appointed. A/C works perfectly.

Views and sunrises are spectacular. Very good location close to numerous restaruants and activities.

Greg checked on us a few times but we were unable to return calls since there seems to be about 15 numbers associated with making calls. Never quite figured out.

Wifi worked flawlessly, can't say about TV. Never used it

Cons:

There are no screens on any of the patio doors so you really can't open up the house and enjoy the breezes without inviting in the nasty small mosquitos. Gets pretty stuffy forcing the use of the AC

No cushions for the chaise lounges on the deck

Gate for the villa on drive is down affording entry in villa area..small security concern

Mosquitos can be bad in early morning and dusk but burning the coils seemed to help tremendously

Overall a wonderful place to stay all week and never leave or to use as the base of your vacation in St Maartin and the only thing that would improve it would be the addtion of some sort of screened area.

Definitely not a home for families with small children as the pool abuts directly to the deck on three sides without any type of barrier. Rental car is essential for this location and basically any trip to St. Maartin. I highly recommend using Michael and his company. Info is in the rental package.

Owner's Response: Hi Mitch, thanks for your review and for visiting Villa Côté Sud. Regarding the gate for the villa ; it's been ripped off by a storm in last October and we are waiting the export report and the insurance payment to install a brand new automatic one. Regarding the mosquitoes at dusk and dawn, it's something normal on the island even if Villa Côté Sud location is one of the safer place on the island thanks to the ocean breeze and the absence of swamp in the surroundings, unlike Orient Bay village for instance. Nevertheless, we are thinking of installing net screen throughout the living room sliding doors to even more improve our guests comfort. Hope to accomodate you next year. Kind regards Daphnée and Gilles

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to St Martin so we weren't certain what to expect. Villa Cote Sud was better than we ever imagined. The home was beautiful, comfortable, and private and so conviently located to beaches and outstanding restaurants. The views from the are deck incredible. The home is stocked with everything you need and is also close to the grocery store and pharmacy. Gilles was very responsive and answered all of our questions. Greg and Nelly checked in on us throughout the week to see if we needed anything. We traveled with our college age children so having wifi and satellite TV was a great bonus. I highly recommend this villa and we would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful place to relax

  • 5 of 5

The villa was even better than the pictures. It was well stocked with everything we needed. The deck and pool area were the best! The size of the deck was amazing! The pool was a refreshing place to cool off in the morning and again at the end of a long day at the beach. Our kids absolutely loved the villa! We also really enjoyed the privacy of the villa.

We would definitely recommend this villa!
