About the property

Exotic wooden villa: living room, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, terrace, and sea view

First year of rental: nested in the green exotic garden planted with trees and flowers, this Creole exotic wooden villa is located close to the village of Deshaies, a charming fishermen’s village. Its huge covered terrace overlooks the beach of Grande Anse, the most beautiful one in Basse-Terre. Around a large colonial living room, it offers 3 bedrooms (one of which has a toilet), a bathroom, and a fitted kitchen opening onto the covered terrace, where the living room and dining room are located. Bedroom 4 is located on the garden level. It has a private bathroom and opens directly onto the pool. An outdoor red wooden shower nested in the vegetation will give you the opportunity to play Robinson. Fences and gates secure the pool, which is surrounded by a huge deck. The environment is residential. The village and its shops are within 3 minutes by car and the beach within 10 minutes on foot. Rates are indicated with bedroom 4 included. A discount of € 150 to € 230 per (week according to the season) will apply for guests choosing the option without bedroom 4 (2/6 people). There is no Sargassum at all at the villa’s location on the Caribbean coast.

About Daniel and Isabelle Stoffaes

Recently retired from a senior executive position in the trading of materials and from a literary translator position, we split our time between Guadeloupe and France. We love travelling the world (USA, South America, Asia, Australia, New Zeeland, and, of course, Europe). In spite of that, we are always impatient to go back to Deshaies, where we spend 6 months a year. Here, we split our time between swimming, hiking, river excursions and nice times with friends.

Daniel and Isabelle Stoffaes purchased this villa in 2007

Why Daniel and Isabelle Stoffaes chose Deshaies

As retirement approached, we started looking for a place where we could find a counterbalance for our stays in the Parisian region. We naturally thought of Guadeloupe, where we spent our childhood. We both fell in love with Deshaies, its stunning Grande Anse Beach, and its small postcard-like village. Our dream house was waiting for us; it was made of exotic wood with stunning views of the Caribbean Sea. In order to maintain it, we chose to rent it during our stays in France.

What makes this villa unique

The infinite blue of the sea as a horizon, the green tropical vegetation as a setting and the soft exotic wood for a total change of scenery. In addition, we live in this house for a large part of the year and we equipped, furnished and decorated it for feeling great. Our guests will find much more than the strictly necessary.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent New Year at Villa Maya and enjoyed every minute. This villa is outstanding. Perfectly designed so that the breeze blows through the house and the terrace shades you from the sun so you can sit outside and enjoy the views. It is set in tropical gardens and we spent a large part of our week watching and feeding the birds, especially the humming birds. The kitchen is well stocked, like a proper family kitchen rather than a rental house and we all loved the outdoor shower. Beware of the hill if you are renting a car! Very small engines with fully loaded car will struggle! Just perfect - hope to return!

Beautiful villa close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Villa. Daniel and Isabelle were very good host and provided everything we needed and even went to get an extra pack n play for our 2nd baby. They were very accomodating and nice.

The villa is exactly like described and we enjoyed dinners and breakfast on the terrace.

I highly recommend this place close to so many beaches. We liked the one right down the house (Grande Anse) but also a lot Petite Anse beach a few kms away.

Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup pour votre appréciation. Vous avez été également des locataires parfaits. Nous sommes très heureux que vous ayez apprécié la villa et les plages alentours. Je ne sais pas si vous avez pu faire un peu de tourisme ou si vous avez surtout profité des plages. Isabelle et moi vous présentons nos meilleurs vœux pour cette nouvelle année et espérons vous accueillir de nouveau. Bien à vous

Beautiful villa with amazing ocean view

  • 5 of 5

This place is wonderful - beautiful wooden villa with tropical garden and an amazing view. We were 2 families staying there (4 adults and 4 children) and the place was just perfect us. We spent most of the time on the patio so the detached bedroom (on pool level) wasn't really a problem. The kitchen is very well equipped and served us well when we decided to cook. Every morning we went to Deshaies to buy freshly baked baguettes so our breakfast was a long meal.

The beaches: Grande Anse and la Perle are really close and they are both beautiful. Plage de la Perle has bigger waves (and our children liked it). We also visited the other part of the island (Grande Terre) but we were really happy to choose Deshaies because it was less crowded, the beaches were so beautiful and Basse Terre is more lush. We got some nice advice from Philip - he is a great source of local knowledge.

To summarize: beautiful location, clean and well equipped villa with amazing view and exotic garden. Highly recommended!

Merveilleux !

  • 5 of 5

Quel séjour de rêve à la villa Maya ! Tout y est pour passer des vacances authentique à l'abris du tourisme de masse. La villa est absolument magique, bénéficie d'un environnement luxuriant et d'une vue fantastique sur l'océan Atlantique. La piscine est parfaite pour les jeunes enfants.

La plage de grande anse est à 2 Minutes de voiture et le village de Deshaie à 5 Minutes. La voiture est obligatoire. Merci de nous faire profiter de votre coin de paradis.
