Beautiful, large villa, few issues

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived at the villa, it was stunning even in the dark! Since we rented the entire villa for ourselves, it was huge! Pauline was amazing! Very on call whenever we needed her, and we did, I'll explain later. If you want seclusion with an amazing view, this house is for you! It made us not want to go anywhere because it had everything! However, there were some things that we had issues with that people should be aware of. But even with these issues, I feel that we would stay here again since we go to SXM 1-2 times a year. We haven't found one villa on the island that is 100%, but this comes pretty close!

1. Air conditioning in one bedroom didn't work. Since we rented the whole house, we expected everything to work.

2. The two front bathrooms had sewer issues. And it only happened when it rained. It smelled the whole house like a sewer! Pauline told us how to fix the problem. I feel that this should be addressed when arriving or in the book and not have to wait for an hour for her to respond with the solution. And it happened multiple times, so that was frustrating.

3. I feel the gardener didn't need to be by your particular bedroom so early in the morning. On vacation, you want to be able to sleep late, and not get woken up by 7:00.

4. The cleaning service was great, but took some of our beach towels and never replaced them. The same with the bath towels and washcloths. I feel that if you're staying there for two weeks, everything should be there at your disposal until you leave.

A Great Stay In A Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa was perfect in every way. Not only was it fabulous, but also the villa came with support which was great--every other day housecleaning, landscape cleaning and maintenance, a local concierge. If you are looking for a place you will remember as "the best stay I have ever had", book this villa and don't look back.

Perfect for Quiet Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Villa Belle Vue and had a wonderful time. The home is clean, comfortable, and private. It has a wonderful huge pool with an amazing 180 degree view of the island and ocean. We did have an issue with the A/C going out in one bedroom, but with as cold as the main part of the house gets... we just left the door open and used the fan. It wasn't that big of an inconvenience. We truly enjoyed all the amenities of this home. If a quiet private vacation home is what you are looking for... then this fits the bill. We will definitely be returning.

P.S.

Pauline, the property manager, is wonderful and a joy to speak with.

"Above and Beyond"

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 couples recently visited St Martin (March, 2015) for two weeks at this incredible property. We were greeted by Pauline, our concierge who was fabulous. She was available for us 24/7 for anything we needed. This house is more than what you can appreciate in the photos. The spectacular view , the well manicured grounds. The house is well appointed for sharing with friends as everyone has their privacy. Fabulous common areas to enjoy morning coffee, a meal, or a cocktail. Large well equipped kitchen with lots of space for all the chefs out there. The pool area is beautiful with lots of furniture and space for the sun lovers and covered areas for shade when you need it. The property is close to restaurants (Orient Beach and Grand Case) a grocery store and the beach. It is only a short drive to Marigot where there is good shopping and great French cafes where you can get some amazing pastries.We would definitely come back and rent this property again.

Sadly disappionted

  • 3 of 5

I want to start by saying the villa was beautiful. Having said that we were sadly disappoint with the condition of the villa. I feel the owner’s representation that this villa is new is not accurate. We were given a tour of the villa and descriptions on how the operate the appliances. At that time we were informed that the coffee maker had an issue. There was a piece broken off of the unit so a plastic spoon was jammed into the unit so it would work. Unfortunately this jacked up fix did not always work as well as being unsightly. The next issue brought to our attentions was the broken air conditioning in a north bedroom. As with the coffee maker we were informed the parts were on order but were coming from France so it probably would not be fixed. During the tour we discovered that half the house did not have water. This was rectified but the pressure was low and the hot water in half the house almost nonexistent. We had several issues with the hot water and pressure though the week. Yes they sent a plumber out to fix it but it was still a major inconvenience not having hot water. The issue that sent us over the edge was the refrigerator. The freezer did not work at all. No ice, our frozen goods purchased spoiled. If the refrigerator was full it did not keep the food cold. This forced us to shop every day. I don’t know about you but when I’m on vacation I don’t want to go to a grocery store every day. When informed of this issue we were told that maybe if we unplug the unit for a couple of hours it might work. This was unacceptable and we asked for a repair or replace it. Neither was done. I can go on about the numerous light bulbs burned out. The security shade not working. The lack of basic items in the kitchen. After returning home we emailed the owners with these complaints. We received an initial response of apology but no other satisfaction.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing this as we welcome the feedback. Our track record of renting our home to other families has been impeccable to date. The experience you had is not acceptable. We immediately went into action when the issues surfaced and I can now report all issues have been fully remedied. 1) The plumbing issue was fixed within 12 hours 2) A new refrigerator was installed 3) The replacement part for the coffee maker arrived from France and was installed. 4) The water pressure was an anomaly and was island wide. 5) The security blind was off track and was fixed immediately. 6) The air conditioner has been replaced. Bottom line, I apologize for what you experienced although when a mechanical item brakes we are at the mercy of contractors. Our full time care taker was onsite immediately and tried to do everything possible to remedy each situation promptly. To be honest, we have never experienced such a bad string of malfunctions previously as our home is still like new. I look forward to your return visit next year!
