We modernized this very charming Villa with all the comfort you need for a perfect vacation. The marbled deck with the Jacuzzi is your ultimate place to be.

Overlooking the spectacular Azure Sea, you have a view of the island of Saba and on clear days, the islands of St. Kitts & Nevis.

The perfect place to be with a cocktail in your hands and waiting for the sunset!


Relax and enjoy whatever you desire….a stroll this evening, maybe?

You’re having dinner at one of the various restaurants within walking distance; or maybe even dare at the casino, or a peek in the very popular nightclub!

Planning trips to St. Barths, Anguilla, or Saba? The boats are in walking distance from your Villa waiting for you.

Coming back after a long day of exploring, CARISMA is welcoming you to a cozy, peaceful and perhaps you are ready for a nice barbecue on the terrance.

The French side of the island is just over the causeway…Welcome to France, “Bienvenue”…more beaches and more beautiful foods.


2 large bedrooms 1 Master upstairs and 1 large guestroom downstairs both each with it own bathroom and both enjoyed with plenty of storage space.

Open Plan Living/Dining Area view to the ocean and Island of Saba.

We stayed at Carisma from Dec, 2 to Dec. 13, 2016. There were two couples and if we tried we could not find anything to complain about. When we arrived we found the fridge stocked with soda, beer, wine, champagne and snacks. I have been to St. Maarten many times and rented at many different places. Finding the fridge stocked as it was was an all time first. I have been vacationing on the Island for over 20 years and, for several years, owned a Time Share at the Simpson Bay Resort when it was called Pelican Resort. During the first years of my ownership Pelican was considered one of the best on the Island. Carisma has it beat by a longshot.

Paul and Carmen could not do any more to make it a fantastic home away from home. There is nothing missing and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Carisma on the beach. The most wonderful Attribute is that one is right beside the sea with direct Access for a morning swim before breakfast. Evening with a glass of cool wine looking at the sun going down and the boats Fading into the distance.

Close enough to Restaurants and bars that one can walk but far enough to have quiet and peace.

Beautifully laid out house. We did not use the air conditioning once during our stay. The sea breeze was enough to Keep us cool.

Thanks Paul and Carmen, not just for being wonderful Hosts, but allowing us to enjoy a Piece of your paradise.

Beautiful views from condo right on the ocean - loved hearing the sounds of the ocean waves!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was updated, clean and in a convenient location on the island, walking distance to a few restaurants. With a rental car, it is a very close drive to the nearest grocery store and the main road. I loved the way the condo was decorated. Very modern and the kitchen updated and well-stocked with utensils and glassware. Loved the view of the ocean right outside the back porch! There were private stairs from our back porch to get down to where the ocean meets the sand, but there were too many rocks adjacent to our staircase covering all the sand to really walk out from the bottom of the staircase. Not really a beach you can sunbath on at the condo. But that was fine, as it was easy to drive to nearby beaches and enjoy the island. Really love the drive into the French side of the island to nettle bay. The waves were much calmer there than the beaches closest to the airport.

Loved that this condo also had a small pool with jets (not a heated hot tub) on the porch, so when we got tired of the beaches, we could just stay at the condo, sun ourselves on the wide porch, and when we got too hot, just step into your private tub with cool water. Very refreshing! Love that part of the outside porch was covered if it started to rain or if you just did not want to be in 100% sunshine.

The only negative to the condo is that if you are someone who needs to be in 100% air conditioning all the time, only the bedrooms are air-conditioned and cooled. The living room/dining room kitchen stay cooler with ambient air as long as you have the front door and back screen doors open to allow the ocean breezes to blow through. If you close the front door, it can get very warm in the living areas even with the fans on the ceilings running.

Paul and Carmen were perfect hosts and made sure we understood where everything was and how to operate things like the TVs, the air conditioners in the bedrooms, etc. Paul checked up on us his mid week to ensure all was fine.

I would recommend staying at his condo and would stay there again if I'm visiting again in the future.

Tip - ensure you rent a small rental car, as parking for the condos are on a very narrow side street with tiny parking spaces. I found it a bit challenging to get even our tiny rental car backed out of the space and up the hill to the main road (Billy Folly). Not much room to turn the car around to drive up the hill to Billy Folly road if you don't want to back up all the way out.

Owner's Response: Joanne, It was great having you as our guest, glad you enjoyed our villa. On your next trip, to keep the place cool, the bedroom doors and windows should remain open in order for the ocean breeze to blow thru the villa. Carmen and Paul

Best place to stay on the island!!!

  • 5 of 5

My new husband and I stayed at Carisma for our honeymoon in October 2016. We have been to St Maarten before and knew that we wanted to stay in that exact area. We were so pleased to find a private villa on the water within our budget. And even better, it was an absolutely beautiful villa! Carisma is beautifully decorated and makes great use of the space, especially the outdoor area. Everything is provided right down to the bug spray and tanning lotion!!!! Paul and Carmen live close by and are always willing to suggest a good restaurant. ( check out Sale & Pepe for the BEST Italian food on the island...its right around the corner) We will definitely be repeat renters and are so happy we had the opportunity to stay at this lovely villa!!!!!

Nice villa, direct ocean front. The villa has a large patio on the waters edge that had room for loungers and table seating for those who are in SXM for the sun and the weather. It s convenient and within walking distance to several restaurant's, a small grocery store and a nightclub for entertainment. Paul and Carmine make you feel welcome and comfortable when you arrive showing you everything you will need and also give tips to local dining spots. A great three day mini vacation and we would do it again!!!!!!
