A vibrant blue gate sets the stage for mesmerizing sea views, photogenic sunsets, unique water features and stylish tropical living straight out of a design magazine. Entering through the courtyard, a pebbled tropical stream flows invitingly around the upper level. Walk through the blue front door and a panoramic vision in brilliant greens and blues flows all the way from the turquoise pool to the sea and beyond to the horizon. The scene is dramatic, magical and serene.
Open, airy interior and exterior rooms, with high vaulted ceilings and creamy stone floors, blend seamlessly to create a chicly contemporary, comfortable space. Expansive floor to ceiling glass walls and sliding glass doors open wide to the sea view, the upper pool and spacious outdoor terraces for al fresco dining and lounging. Soft white walls, colorful modern art and accessories plus sleek furniture in off-white and taupe are complemented by dark woods for an inviting and relaxing style. Off the dining area, facing the sea, is a modern, open kitchen in white, grey, steel and black granite.
The four bedrooms are housed in two wings. Every bedroom is equal size with sea and lower pool views. The interiors are sleek and tranquil in whites and neutrals accented with color pops; each room distinctive in blue, turquoise, brown and red. The beautiful spa style marble and stone bathrooms feature spacious walk in showers with sea and pool views; one has a private outdoor shower.
3 bedrooms are off the main space, past the open air, sea view gym. The upper bedroom terrace has views of the sea and beautiful lower pool. Downstairs are two pool level bedrooms each with views, private terraces and ladders so you can dip in the pool from your room. The fourth bedroom, with direct lower pool access, is across the upper level river and downstairs with its own private entry just off the upper level pool.
Although very secluded, you are very close to amenities. Walk to Plum Beach. Drive 5 minutes to Baie Nettles new culinary stars; Le Sand, Dreams and Mezza Luna. 10 minute drive brings you to the charming French capital of Marigot with restaurants, shops and galleries, historic buildings and the Creole Market. Drive 25 minutes to Grand Case; 30 to Philipsburgs shopping haven and a mere 10 to the airport.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Internet on the island can be inconsistent and signal strength is generally lower than in developed cities. As our guests in St. Martin, be prepared to work less and relax more.
Satellite television in St. Martin can be spotty so remember to set your DVR to record your favorite shows before leaving home.
You can take a dip into the lower level pool right from three of the bedrooms. Enter and exit easily with ladders right off the sliding glass doors.
Fully enjoy the outdoors. Floor to ceiling sliding glass doors open the main living space and kitchen wide open to the covered verandahs. Only ceiling fans keep these spaces cool during the daytime apart from the tropical breezes.

We rented Grand Bleu for a week early March with another couple for our 15th wedding anniversary celebration, and it was absolutely fantastic. The view was incredible, excellent service by everyone at Luxury Retreats as well as our lovely housekeeper Mercier. The layout and bedrooms of the house were perfect. Pools were fantastic. Great music system, kitchen was well equipped, etc, etc, etc!
If I'm being super picky I will say that the house needs some love. A fresh coat of paint, the strip lighting in our bathroom was broken, some broken floor tiles, etc. Just regular wear and tear that could be easily remedied. But overall I'd highly, highly recommend this property!!
All was good. Villa was very nice. One complaint is that all exercise equipment was outdated and broken. Pictures show a gym which was important to me, but nothing worked at all, and machines are all very old an broken. Pics should be removed as terribly misleading.
We had an amazing stay. Wonderful assistance by Emma as from the first contact. We travel a lot and this has been one of our best experience at all. Upon check in we were greeted by the driver to take us to the villa complimentary. The first impression has been absolute delight with a perfect view. Villa is in amazing condition. The only down part was a bit cold pool water yet this hasn't been any big issue.
A fantastic villa - a fantastic vacation - we enjoyed the villa, the view and the pools.
We stayed at Grand Bleu for my son's high school graduation trip. My 18 year old son and 15 year old daughter each brought a friend. We had an absolutely fantastic time! The villa is huge and modern with a beautiful hilltop view. The open air living room, open dining area, and pools are awesome. The bedrooms and bathrooms are huge and posh.
Our chef, Jerome spoiled us. We took turns choosing meals for him to prepare, and they were all SO delicious. The presentation was straight out of a French restaurant.
Luxury Retreats did a great job from beginning to end. The planning process by email leading up to our trip was super easy. We planned our entire itinerary ahead of time, which made the trip go very smoothly. Dominic helped choose a villa, and Emma was on top of everything before we arrived. We were picked up at the airport in a super nice Mercedes bus and whisked away to our awesome villa where our rental car was waiting.
St. Martin is full of things to do. Loved every min
We had a terrific time in St Marteen as always, but not necessarily due to the villa. Villa was lovely, but not supplied well for home entertaining, or food prep. Constant problems with the gate locking us in provided unnecessary frustration as it was easily solved and we weren't clued in to solution until problem had occurred 4 times leaving our friends constantly waiting outside for us.
Terrific on rainy days to have the living room feel like inside but outside. However stairs to rooms slippery in rain and had to get soaked going to the rooms in frequent downpours.
Ping pong table and bikes a bonus, rooms outfitted beautifully.
