My husband and I just spent a month at Villa Acropole, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This was our 5th time we have stayed at the villa. The view is breathtaking! The villa is spacious and the kitchen is equipped with everything you will need. The dining table outside is where we ate all our meals, so we could enjoy the fabulous view of the ocean. The pool is very large, and there is a small refrigerator for your beverages! The villa is just a 10 minute walk from Orient Beach, which is the best beach on the island. There are lots of bars/restaurants on the beach, and plenty of beach loungers for sunbathing or relaxing. The owners, ZouZou and Alain are always great help with anything we need during our stay. Orient Bay/Orient Beach in St Martin is our "Happy Place", and we absolutely love this island. We hope to vacation there every year!
We just stayed at Villa Acropole in July for our 2nd visit. It is a fantastic villa with the most amazing views. Just two of us so we had a lot of extra room, you could have a large group or several couples quite comfortably. Great amenities; air conditioning, ocean views with outdoor dining, satellite tv, Internet, housekeeping, etc.
I miss having my morning croissants on the beautiful terrace overlooking Orient Bay! Zouzou and Alain are wonderful if you have questions or need anything. They were very patient with us even though we set off the alarm and accidentally called the police station!
The beach and shopping are 5 minutes away, Grand Case incredible French restaurants are 10 minutes by car, Marigot about 15 minutes. This villa is so convenient to everything. But I have saved the best for last - the POOL is one of the largest and prettiest of any villa. Swim in the warm water looking at the beautiful Caribbean, mountains, and planes flying to St. Bart's.
Thanks Zouzou & Alain for an incredible vacation. We WILL be back!

Great villa with a spectacular view!
My husband and I just spent a month at Villa Acropole and didn't want to go back home! This was the second year we vacationed in this villa, staying a month each year. The view is breathtaking! It is just a 10 minute walk from Orient Beach, which is the best beach on the island. There are lots of bars/restaurants on the beach, and plenty of beach loungers for sunbathing or relaxing. The villa is spacious and the kitchen is equipped with everything you will need. The dining table outside is where we ate all our meals, so we could enjoy the fabulous view of the ocean. The pool is very large, and there is a small refrigerator for your beverages! The owners, ZouZou and Alain were great! Great place and we highly recommend it! Hope to return for our third year!
Beautiful villa with exquisite views!
We loved staying at this villa. It is walking distance to Orient Bay beaches as well as dining options in Orient Bay Village. We enjoyed coming back from the beach in the late afternoon and cooling off with a dip in the beautiful in-ground swimming pool. The kitchen is well equipped and we ate breakfast on the veranda each day. Zuzu and her family are gracious hosts and provided everything we needed.
Dont Go There!
The house is very nice, not near the beach, 10 - 15 minute walk but a great ocean view. Pool is unheated but bearable. The issue - the house was broken into on our 4th day. There is an alarm, we set it, but found out from the alarm company post-robbery the battery was dead and the owner's had no clue, duh. The owners have an apartment attached to the house but they could have cared less, seems the house across the way had been robbed the preceding week, happens all the time, no big deal. Everyone in the house had their mobile phones taken, several hundred dollars in cash and even one winter coat, go figure!
The French side of St Martin used to be lovely, safe, quite, great food but in their quest for the almighty euro the French side is now a cruise destination with all the crowding and crime that comes with it. There is now a guarded gate at the entrance to Orient Bay but they just sit in their little booth and let everyone come and go as they please, no real security there at all.
We went to Marigot one night for dinner and parked in what was once the very lovely town square, now just a parking lot for the cruise ship traffic and we were followed by some guys in a pickup obviously with the intention of robbing us. We let them know we were aware of them and they left for easier targets. My suggestion; don't go to Marigot after dark unless you're with a crowd.
Orient Bay is likewise not immune as busloads of tourists are driven right to the beach several days a week, likely as a planned cruise excursion for the day and it gets very crowded.
So if you stay at this house or any other in Orient Bay don't bring any valuables or cash. Use the safe for anything with any value (unfortunately the safe won't fit winter coats or laptops). Don't take your fancy iPhone, jewelry or cash to the beach or restaurants, you will become an instant target and believe me the thieves will know where you are staying because the bars and restaurants all have "spotters". And our final suggestion unfortunately is; St Martin, don't go there!
WE RENT THIS FABULOUS VILLA SINCE 2009,WE ALWAYS HAVE GOODS REVIEWS ,NO PROBLEMS & LOTS OF RETURN CUSTOMERS EVERY YEAR

(sorry for my english …)
My wife and I have been to villa acropole 4 years in a row. We just love it there. There is plenty of common space so when others are with us you can still relax in peace. The location in the orient village is very safe and is a short walk to the beach. Zouzou and Alan are always available to solve any problems. The view is to die for. Just sitting out each morning drinking coffee over looking the sea never gets old. We would recommend the villa to anyone . 2 or 3 couples is perfect plenty of space for all. We were last there jan 2015.great beaches and restaurants are all very close.
walking distance to Orient beach & orient bay village
lots restaurants , beach restaurants ,supermarket,hair dresser ,esthetic etc ...
