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.

Daphnée and Gilles KELAIDITES purchased this villa in 2010
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.
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.
superbe maison !
les photos sont exactement ce que l'on retrouve sur place!
jardinier, femme de ménage, pisciniste tout y est! quartier très calme ! une vue magnifique!
vraiment nous sommes très content et nous avons passé un très bon séjour!
Just got back to the Canadian winter...Stayed with my husband in January to celebrate his 60th Birthday. We have rented many Villas around the world, found pictures to be accurate, booking and communication process first class. Greg the concierge was super helpful and assisted us in booking the most amazing couples massage in the privacy of our villa deck with the sea as the backdrop. Villa is very private and secure and has all you need for a villa and beach vacation. Highlights to note were the wild horses seen grazing on the hill just 20 feet away from the deck, location is optimal in cul de sac which has several good restaurants, a grocery store, pharmacy and 5 to 10 minutes to several beaches. A car is necessary to get to the beaches but if you are ambitious you can walk into the Main Street of cul de sac in about 15 minutes. The only negative to share are the Mosquitos. Despite taking all precautions including spray and coils the bugs were relentless inside and outside the villa deck. I was bitten well over 100 times which made the stay for me less enjoyable overall. As for day trips we visited Pinel Island by kayak (our favourite day), Anse Marcel, Friars Bay, Happy Bay, Orient Beach, Grand Cayes, Grand Case, and le Gallion. Best swimming beaches by far are Pinel and Gallion with shallow calm clear waters. We also spent a couple days just lounging by our pool in the sun. Cul de Sac restaurants we reco are Al Dente (best restaurant on the island) Villa Pizza and Pancho. We tried every restaurant in cul de sac and all are good. We would highly recommend this villa and loved the Island of St. Martin.
We spent one week here as a family of 4. We thoroughly enjoyed the home. The views are fantastic and I just love how the sliding doors open wide so it feels like you are essentially living outside. The breeze up there was very refreshing so you never felt too hot. It also keeps most of the bugs away. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are large. Each bed has a bug net. But honestly we kept the doors closed at dusk which kept any mosquitoes out of the home anyway. The rest of the time from morning to late afternoon we had al the doors open wide. The breeze enters the home and just feels so tropical. The concierge service was great. We arrived late on dec 31 so we asked them to pick up grocery items to get us started. They also made sure we had some appetizers and sweets to enjoy for New Year's Eve. The villa is also very private. We always felt as though nobody could really see us. Th location is close to drive to major sites and beaches. Close to orient beach. And 10 minutes to dine at grande case area. This villa definitely needs a car as there is not much to walk to. Enjoy renting this if you like privacy and quiet and a great view of the sea.
Very neat and clean, we loved our stay and we will definitely go back to this villa, the best in St-Martin
This is our 9th trip to St. Martin and we have rented Villa's every time. This villa is probably our favorite so far. The huge sliding doors open up and there is a wonderful breeze day and night. We never turned the AC on in the living room, in fact we left the front door open most of the time also. The neighborhood is quiet and we felt very safe. The deck is huge and the views can't be beat. The location is absolutely perfect. 5 min drive to Grand case and 5 (ish) mins to Orient Beach. Greg and Lilly were very nice and welcoming. We had a minor crack in the shower head and Greg was out first thing the next morning to fix it. We didn't arrange maid service so if that is something you want make sure you ask about it.
There is a gas grill outside and big gas stove top, which pictures didn't show. There is just about everything you could want already here. All the cooking pots/pans you will need and plenty of plates and cups. coolers and chairs to take the beach...etc
The only minor thing we wanted was a dryer. There is a small washing machine but you have to air dry everything and that was alittle bit of a pain. (SUPER minor for a beach trip).
We had such a great time and we hope to be back next year. Thank you to the owners for sharing their fantastic house with us!!
Just a few words to say that the property is everything that it says it is, we've been coming to St Martin for the past 14 years and this was the best accommodations we have had to date. In fact, we have already sent a request for 2017, nothing compares to coming in from the beach and then getting into the pool to watch the sunset. Also, we always like to have a few meals other than eating out, this kitchen and pantry were stocked with every pot, pan, etc that you would ever need.
Only 1 semi-issue; had no ABC, NBC, CBS or FOX News, so had to watch CNN to get the news - this won't be a problem next year as I'm sure all the networks will be covering something other than Clinton / Trump!
Thanks for sharing your vacation home with us, it's easy to see that it is well cared for by Greg....

We stayed here for our honeymoon and couldn't have had a better time. The weather was beautiful and the people were so accepting and helpful. However, we did have issues trying to contact the people who were in charge of letting us in the house, as the number provided did not work for us, and we didn't realize we would have zero service. Once in the home they were somewhat helpful with showing us around, but they didn't speak very good English. I would just suggest maybe some written forms showing what there is in the home and which keys go to what! With that being said we had a wonderful time, the pool was beautiful and the lights in the pool even better. The views were even better, we spent most of our time on the deck, which was gorgeous. There were wild horses down below on the beach as well, which made the experience really set in. We rented a Jeep, which I recommend any 4-wheel drive as the hill for the home was quite steep. There is a store just down the road where you can find a few supplies. Again, the house was perfect for the week, the neighborhood was quiet and tucked away and right within a drives distance of the beaches. I would ask that for future tenants that you get an iron that isn't rusted, we went to iron some clothes and couldn't because the iron was rusted on the bottom! Thank you for opening your home to us, we will be back.
