Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Cul-de-Sac - 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.

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 St Maarten / Saint Martin

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.

Beautiful Experience

  • 4 of 5

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.

Spectacular Romantic and Private

  • 5 of 5

Just like many others have stated, everything about Villa Cote Sud was spectacular. As my wife and I are pretty autonomous on the island, the only interruption we wanted and had during our entire stay was the landscaping and pool service, which we totally expected after reading the reviews of others . Fabian, who works with Greg, was wonderful in having a cold beer and a warm welcome when we arrived. Fabian was very helpful in giving us the details of the surrounding area and at which markets to shop. His beach and dinner recommendations were spot on. Greg was very helpful in in assisting us in getting a day charter to Anguilla. The villa itself was spotless. Everything you need to cook yourself is readily available. The wifi was flawless. The audio system supplied entertainment when we were on the deck. I can't say enough good things about our stay and the accommodations. One pleasant surprise we discovered during our morning walks through the neighborhood was the fresh croissants and baguettes stocked by Clark at the neighborhood Cul De Sac market (extra bonus for operating on US currency) as well as some other surprising staples that provide a nice local alternative to the Coci market. The entire stay made for a wonderful 10th anniversary. We can't wait to come back with our children to share the experience. My wife is already looking to plan a girls trip as well. Daphne and Gilles were extremely responsive throughout the booking process. As someone whose career is in Hospitality, with many years working for 5 star resorts, this vacation oasis rivals any experience.

Fantastic week at Ville Cote' Sud

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed a week at Daphnee and Giles home the week of 28 May to 4 June. What a great week. This was our fist experience using VRBO and also our first non-cruise visit to St. Maarten. It won't be our last. It was just fantastic.

The house itself is just like the pictures display. Gated drive for privacy and beautiful landscaping surround the entire house. 3 big bedrooms with plenty of room for 3 couples for a week. Roomy kitchen with enough pots and pans to eat-in when wanted. But, the deck is where you'll spend most of the time and it doesn't disappoint. Hard to believe you can have this view and still be private.

Greg and Lilly checked on us and responded quickly to just one small issue we had. My only recommendation would be, as others have suggested, to coordinate for the house visits. I knew from other reviews that the pool guy shows up on Wednesday. I was expecting him to come through the gate so it did surprise me when he popped up from the house down below. Just know he works both properties. Also, twice we were on the deck laying out and apparently did not hear the front door. So it was disconcerting both times to hear Lilly knocking on the glass deck door just behind us inside the house. You just assume you are on the property alone inside the locked gate so perhaps knowing the managers are stopping by in advance would be nice. Or, add a gate bell and/or front door bell that can be heard on the deck. Not a huge deal however.

We can't wait to go back. As others have said, things are just close here. Back to the beach at Orient in minutes, or eating at Grand Case in 10 minutes. Again, we will be back.

We stayed at this house for a week with another couple. You walk in the door and get a panoramic view right away. We had one side of the house and the other couple had the other side, with the common living room and kitchen in the middle. Everything opens onto the pool deck with a beautiful view of the sea. Everything you need is in the house.

Lily and Greg were great to deal with. Very friendly and not intrusive. A guy comes to clean the pool on Wednesday and he is also friendly.

We went to orient beach one day which is very close. The restaurants in Grand Case are also 5 minutes away. There is a very nice pizza restaurant in Cul de Sac which is about 2 minutes away.

If we ever go back to St. Martin I would love to rent this place again.

fantastic villa and visit

  • 5 of 5

villa cote sud was everything....and more........that i had hoped for...............beautiful house; spectacular views........warm breeze all the time............although we did get out to see other things, walk on the beach, etc., we all mostly enjoyed hanging out on the veranda and in the pool (my 4-year old grandson learned to swim!!). grande case was close by for shops and restaurants. hevea hotel was also nice, and where some of my guests stayed. very convenient....ate many breakfasts at the rainbow cafe across the street from the hotel and right on the beach. recommend.

i would definitely recommend cote sud to my friends. my conversations with gilles and greg were always prompt, reassuring and direct.

thanks for a wonderful vacation.
