Your panoramic ocean view encompasses not only the sunsets, but the islands of Saba, St. Kitts, and Nevis, together with an occasional cruise ship creeping across the horizon on its way to or from Philipsburg, and the sizeable sailing yachts and megayachts which have chosen St. Maarten as their winter home.
Tres Belle Villa is a private, romantic waterfront villa with a gentle breeze, quiet surf and exquisite sunsets. Located in Coral Shores, Pelican Key, it is one of 27 Villas of which eight are Oceanfront.
Your 40-foot covered deck is so close to the water you can toss a coin into the sea and see the fish swiming. Truly, this is the perfect place for outside waterfront dining or just relaxing.
Hello Bob and Pam,
We had a lovely time at your villa in St. Maarten. The pictures were so accurate. Your information was very helpful and Mark’s Place had the best ribs on the island. We ate there twice. The weather was good, very few showers, however, it was hot as to be expected during this time of the year. The only disappointment was the French pastries I purchased at the market down the hill (I missed the bakery shop across the street) the signage is not the best and can be easily missed, which is what I did. The apple turnovers were filled with applesauce! I had to throw them out.
The island is a beautiful one! It reminds me of maui, the water is sooo beautiful. It’s a treasure and I certainly see why it’s your home away from home. If we didn’t love to travel and explore so much, this is second to Hawaii.
Again, it was a pleasure to stay at your well equipped villa.
Greg, Linda & Josh
We have just returned from two wonderful weeks at Tres Belle. The only complaint that I have is that we had to return home. The villa is bright and cheerful. Very clean. LOTS of good towels. On site staff (Lillian & Olive) were wonderful, very accomodating and full of helpful hints and good cheer. The location is wonderful - close to everything and yet actually it's quite tucked away and private. During our visit the pool was being repaired - we hardly missed it. We were in the ocean everyday, just a quick few steps down the ladder and there you go. We didn't even connect our cell phones. There is a phone in the house for local calls. We kept up with home via our laptop (thanks to the connection in the house) I would suggest this house to everyone I know looking for a really peaceful and refreshing vacation (or maybe not - let's keep it a secret 8-). One last thing.. I had been having a problem with my knee, the villa is on one level and is very easy to manuever around. No problem with steps or difficult walks up hills to the parking area. It's great, bring sunscreen and have a fabulous vacation! Watch out for the speed bumps in the roads.
We have been to St Martin several times, and stayed at different locations each time. This was by far the best place. As soon as we opened the door to this villa we fell in love. The view is spectacular - and the covered deck runs the full length of the unit. Never needed the A/C, lots of fans and ocean breezes, and it was lovely to go to sleep with the sounds of the waves and the tree frogs. Coral Shores is a great little complex. Beautifully landscaped - flowers everywhere, and the pool is gorgeous - and not at all crowded. Plenty of lounges, with sun or shade. Well stocked villa, with everything you need - blender for those tropical drinks, gas grill, even binoculars for observing the boats going by. Very nice housekeeping staff who meet you and explain everything you need to know, and they keep the unit very clean. Already thinking about when we can return.
This place is truly perfect...we couldn't have asked for more! The villa is modern and tastefully decorated - every amenity one could ask for is provided. You are steps from the pool and from
snorkeling. Sunsets from the deck are spectacular! The staff is extremely helpful and accommodating...the entire experience was wonderful. Our hosts kept us updated on the Island's
activities which we greatly appreciated. We absolutely will return to this villa and would highly recommend it to anyone who might consider a vacation here. You won't be disappointed
Just wanted to say what a wonderful place you have and Coral Shores is so beautiful!! Selma and the lady that cleaned the unit are fantastic people, we enjoyed our stay very very much, you have everything a person could need in your villa. I hope you're still renting next year because your place has become my new home away from home!!! Love that location much better then my usual location/rental. Truly paradise!!!
This Villa is truly Paradise!! We never left only to go to dinner!!! Sylma was a love and the Kearns' were delightful!! I can't wait to go back -- I miss it so much!! Everybody should experience this Villa once in their life!!
This villa offers almost every convenience that you’d want in a rental. The owners obviously spend time here and have created a truly pleasant experience. Whether you want to stay in the shade, fun in the sun, or lounge inside with your favorite movies this villa will meet your needs. The shaded deck with padded deck chairs, lounges, and outside dining table are comfortable and the view and sounds of the bay are simply beautiful. It’s 40 steps to a clean pool and wonderfully maintained area for tanning and lounging. Despite the rocky coast the villa does have access for ocean swimming right next to the pool. Beach access is a bit of a walk down the street but it is accessible if you need sand.
Bedrooms are comfortable, particularly the master bedroom that overlooks the deck and the ocean. Beds are large and restful, furniture is new and the bathroom facilities are clean and updated.
The kitchen is very well stocked and had every plate, pot, and dish that we needed during our stay. The living room area has new, comfortable furniture and all chairs recline! The extras in this villa are an unusual, nice addition; flat screen TVs in all rooms, bluray DVD player, Bose iPod speaker system, and secure WIFI accessible from all rooms are all uncommon for a rental. There’s even a nice supply of family friendly DVDs and several books. There’s a grill and laundry facilities for your use as well.
In all, this villa exceeded all of our expectations. These owners understand customer service and have invested in all the right areas to create an enjoyable, restful vacation environment.
Lastly, the Kearns provide you with detailed, local information about restaurants, sites, and directions around the island. After all of my online reading I found their information to be the most helpful and accurate. We printed their info and simply carried it with us in the car and enjoyed all of their recommendations.
A word about driving; to experience the island you need a rental car. Invest in a medium size car or small SUV to get a better suspension. The roads in Simpson Bay are simply terrible and you’ll appreciate better shocks and springs. Local drivers are generally patient with tourist drivers and the roads improve greatly outside of the Simpson Bay area.
In all, this rental experience was the best we’ve encountered in the Caribbean. When we revisit St. Martin we will be staying here again.
