Down the long driveway lined with coral stone walls and flamboyant, you arrive in the courtyard of this elegant Creole style villa. It is a quiet, private oasis that sets the stage for relaxing outdoor living and a lush tropical view that begins the moment you enter the villa. The large turquoise pool, accented with a visually pleasing sculpture, draws your eye straight to the stately palms and beyond to the cerulean sea.
There is a beautiful flow to the house; an almost seamless connection inside to outside. Although very open, it is private. Large covered galleries create multiple options for dining, lounging and sunning. It also creates a cool space for firing up the barbeque. Sleek, yet comfortable, new loungers surround the pool.
The dcor is serene and tasteful, both inside and outside. The open plan interior living area contains comfortable oversized seating and inside dining. Adjacent to the main living area is the well-equipped, modern kitchen in sleek white, steel and black. All the interior living spaces open to the terrace and the view. The dcor is eclectic, contemporary and relaxed in white, beige and taupe accented with driftwood and dark woods. Beautiful paintings, sculpture and exotic African art adds a very distinctive designer touch to the space.
Four bedrooms are set off the pool terrace. The dcor is in the mood of a luxe boutique hotel; elegant and serene, each room in a different, yet connective, rich neutral color palette; taupe, cream, charcoal, driftwood and metallic. The en suite bathrooms are works of art with travertine tiles, dark stone, marble countertops, sculpted sinks and beautiful fixtures. Several bathrooms overlook the gardens; one overlooks the sea. For larger gatherings, the sister villa, La Nina, shares the same lot and provides an additional two bedrooms. The two also share a tennis court and gym.
Although secluded, you are close to amenities. Its a short drive to beaches such as Plum Bay and Long Bay. You are ten minutes to the airport. Baie Nettles new culinary stars; Le Sand, Dreams and Mezza Luna are 5 minutes away and a further 5 minutes you reach the charming French capital of Marigot with shops and galleries, historic buildings and the Creole Market. Drive 25 minutes to Grand Case and Philipsburgs shopping haven.
Additional Information Please note that this villa is equipped with a mosquito repellent system around the house, using only essential oils. However, it is not guaranteed that there will not be any mosquito, but the system would help to prevent mosquitoes around this property.

We stayed at this villa several times. This villa has everything you need for a complete vacation.
The villa was spectacular. Even if we were not on the beach, we were so close by, that it wasn't a problem at all. From our pick up at the airport to the welcome by the concierge at the villa, everything was perfect. The daily service of Mona Lisa was also perfect. We had the service of Fabulous Feast on Wednesday night. Comments were sent to the concierge because the service hasn't met our expectation.
Every single thing and detail from booking to end of holiday left nothing to be desired. Our villa was perfectly appointed and services provided by Luxury Retreats were simply excellent. We usually use a combination of services over our holidays but it was quite convenient to have just one source for all our wants and desires, the wonderful concierge. It was refreshing to arrive and see everything as we requested, especially after flight delays and traveling with a 6 year old. We thoroughly enjoyed the tennis court and swimming pool. Our fondest memory was the fantastic poolside massage booked by the concierge. The missus was very happy with such a treat. Emma's suggestion of Pinel Island made for a lovely day trip.
We had a great time. Julie Hutton was marvelous to work with before the trip and while we were there. The villa was just as the pictures showed. Very nice. The only problem was that we lost the internet connection the last three or four days and even though the internet repair people came out to the house four times to fix it, they could not get it fixed. Since I absolutely needed the internet for work, it really created a huge time problem as I spent so much time trying to figure out how to get internet. In the end I would not be able to come back unless the internet problem within the villa was fixed. I understand that St. Martin's internet was spotty, but that was not the problem, the problem was for that particular villa.
This is one of the nicest villas in which we have ever stayed, and we've travelled the world. Each room was tastefully decorated and comfortable. But the ultimate delight was the pool. There were ample seating areas and poolside chairs. Mona Lisa was a pleasant and efficient housekeeper. The pictures on the website are true representations of the rooms and spaces. The bathroom windows with no coverings was a little bothersome. There were plenty of supplies easily available if you needed to restock, such as towels, toilet tissue and paper towels. Overall, it is simply a relaxing, tranquil place to spend time. It was hard to leave.
