Magnificent villa beautiful sea view for this little gem located on the heights of Mont Choisy.
Between the beautiful beaches of Happy Bay and Friar's Bay, you will stay in a little cocoon.
Equipped with a swimming pool and sun beds, the villa is fully equipped for your comfort.
The 3 air conditioned rooms have king size bed (200 x 200cm).
A terrace with sitting area, a garden for your meals will make you enjoy beautiful sunsets.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed to prepare meals.
The pictures of the villa do show the lovely setting on the coast. The villa was nicely furnished and lovely; however, each bathroom in the house had an opening that had no glass covering or window. One bathroom's opening was located near ground level next to shrubs. The mesh screen was damaged and a slat for the metal screen was missing. This resulted in a constant flow of mosquitos into the villa, which were then transported throughout the house via the air conditioning system. A glass window that could open and close and a screen without damage would solve the problem. One expects mosquitoes outside but not a constant flow into an airconditioned villa. Reliable, high quality Internet was also a problem. When Internet was available only one person could use it or the connection would be lost. Many times we could not get any internet connection. We could never get an Internet connection that was good enough to allow for streaming on Netflix or to get onto many Internet sites. Occasionally we could get to email.
It is unfortunate that the above noted issues existed, given that the villa was quite lovely otherwise. It is important to know these issues prior to renting because for us it meant that we could not enjoy our vacation.
The house couldn't be in a better spot. The view from the outdoor living space is fantastic. The house is located on a hill between Friar's Bay and Happy Bay. Friar's Bay has restaurants, beach chairs to rent, and music. Happy Bay has none of that. Be aware that the walk up and down the hill from the house is rocky so be careful.
There are three bedrooms but the upstairs one must use the toilet room in the hall which was a bit inconvenient at night. There were only four of us so we used the more spacious bedrooms on the ground floor. The kitchen is supplied with very basic tools; we ate out so it didn't matter to us.
The food in Grand Case is wonderful and only a short ride up the main road. There is a delightful bakery for morning treats and fresh bread just as you enter Grand Case on the right as well as a small grocery store and a great pizzeria (when you need a break for the rich French food).
We traveled around the island one day visiting many beaches but decided we were staying in the best spot. There is a lot of traffic especially during morning and evening rush hour. Why spend your time in a car?
We were there for 10 days with the family and enjoyed it a lot.
The villa is very spacious and probably better than the pictures can show, everything is new and fully furnished.
Just a glitch with the dishwasher: it took a while to be fixed.
The view from the portico is stunning and the kids loved the swimming pool, accessible from their room!
Friar's bay and happy bay beaches are within 10 min walk: probably the most beautiful of the island, ideal if you love to stay away from glamour and chaos.
Excellent support from the renter agency: we also rented the car through them and had our car delivered directly to the villa.
The villa completely fulfilled our expectations and we highly recommend it.
Stunning views--probably among the best views on all of the Island. Defintely the best sunset views anywhere. Villa was nicely decorate and quite comfortable. It is in a very upscale neighborhood. Thet covered upstairs deck area is a great place to spend most of your time . The villa is a 5 minute drive to Grand Case. There are other homes near by which you can sometimes hear because the lots in this area are small (everyone wants this view) but that is a small matter and not overly bothersome. The Villa is about a 10 minute walk to either Happy Beach or Friar Beach. Happy beach is wonderful --that is why we booked this villa. We only saw 2 of the 3 bedrooms in the Villa but they were very similar in size and features which would make sharing the Villa easier because no one has to take a smaller room. We did not share the Villa and it was still fairly close to the prices of hotels on Orient Beach where we also stayed for a few nights.
Our real estate agent ( Gabriel MONTIGNY ) was VERY helpful. I would also recommend using this agent for other properties.
Everything about this house is wonderful-the view, location, rooms, beds, etc. the house is much better than it seems in the pictures. We recommend this house to anybody, we loved it!
