Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 5.5 Bathrooms, 6 Sleeps

The approach to Mer Soleil sets the stage for an exotic French Creole villa with Mediterranean flair. Colorful mosaics embedded in whitewash walls hug the teak main gate further flanked by tall palms in oversized planters. Past the gate, the stone paved drive is edged with colorful tropical shrubs and palms. Arches, terracotta roofing, columns and ironwork define the entrance. The view dazzles as you enter the home. The turquoise pool edged by tropical foliage draws your eye to the Caribbean Sea and brilliant blue sky. Within view are the island of Saba, Baie Lounge Beach and the luxury hotel La Samanna. At night, sunsets are simply brilliant.

The villa flows seamlessly from the interiors to the covered terraces and onto the spacious pool terrace. The open plan great room mixes Caribbean touches with French style. Arched windows, doors and ironwork add to the exotic attitude. Rattan, teak, painted and tiled furniture accent the local art and interesting accessories. Cream and blue tones connect the seating and dining area. A large Provenal style kitchen, in beautiful wood cabinetry and marble tiles with high-end appliances, is a very elegant place to prepare a meal, whether by a professional or amateur chef. The main kitchen opens to the view and to a gorgeous blue tile Moroccan inspired covered outdoor kitchen and dining gazebo. It is a stunning place to cook and dine al-fresco. The gazebo also houses additional living room seating overlooking the gardens and ocean view.

Three bedrooms are in the main villa; two off the upper terrace and one at garden level. Two additional bedrooms are in a private cottage tucked behind the villa. All bedrooms have either sea or garden views plus private seating inside and out. Poster beds, rattan and teak furniture, charming Provence and tropical inspired fabrics in blues, yellows and white create a romantic feel to the rooms. The en-suite bathrooms are gorgeous in traditional Provenal tiles and mosaics, each room in a different color. Several bathrooms have either sea or garden views from their walk-in showers. The cottage bedroom suites each have a wet bar and fridge while also providing an interconnecting door, a great feature for families.

You are close to amenities. Two minutes to Baie Nettles culinary stars Le Sand, Dreams and Mezza Luna. Wonderful gourmet food and wine stores are just a short drive in Cupecoy along with the Starz Casino and fine dining options Escape and Temptation. A short 15-minute drive and you are at the International airport or the nightlife of Maho. The French Capital, Marigot, is only 15 minutes from the villa where you can enjoy Duty Free shopping, boutiques, bakeries and the Creole Market.

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.

Great Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The villa we stayed in was beautiful and well appointed. The staff, sales team and concierge did an amazing job. They arranged a chef, masseuse, jet ski tours and restaurant reservations. All were amazing. The location on the island was perfect to visit both the French and Dutch side. We took a flight out of Grand Case to St. Barth and a driver for the day was arranged. Another great experience.

we had a spectacular vacation!

  • 5 of 5

St martin is a wonderful island. Last year we rented Encore which was amazing with a professional staff who was available 24/7 for all our needs. This year we rented Mer Soliel which may not have been as luxurious however totally fit our family's needs with the indoor /outdoor setup! while the bedrooms and bathrooms were a little nicer at Encore, the bedrooms were certainly fine at Mer Soliel. Las year having all the bedroom situated around the pool was much nicer than having the bedrooms all spread out between the cottage and the downstairs this year, so if we could combine the 2 houses it will be absolutely perfect! Having said that we had an amazing week anyway! Eddie was our concierge once we arrived in St Martin. I cant say enough nice things about him! He was friendly, accommodating, helpful and always available for us! I hope next year he will be available for us as he was fantastic! Again, compare to last year, he was much more helpful than Isabella!

Amazing week long family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family - 8 adults and 4 kids stayed at Mer Soleil March 20 - March 27. We had an amazing time. From the moment we entered the front gate, we knew we picked the right vacation house for our family. The house is perfectly laid out. The kitchen, dining room, several seating areas are all surrounding the pool that we spent all our time in. The bedrooms were positioned in such a way that each smaller family group got their own privacy. The house is positioned so that each night you have a stunning, uninterrupted view of the sunset. I don’t think we missed a night waving the sun goodbye. We cooked at the house a great deal and found the kitchen to be very well stocked with plenty of cooking supplies. The caretakers - gardener & housekeeper did an outstanding job each day. The house also has access to some of the beautiful and limited access beaches in Terres Basses. Our family loved our week in paradise and can’t wait to return next year!
