We loved our stay
We highly recommend you consider Villa Alanca when booking accommodations in Sint Maarten! The villa looks identical to the photos (except for the pool, which actually looks bigger in person!) and is a short walk away from a grocery store, bakeries, multiple restaurants/bars, and an amazing beach. Philippe was a breeze to communicate with and made our stay simple and easy. One of our favorite things about the villa was how much seating was available – tons of space for coffee by the pool, breakfast outside on the front deck, card games at the dining room table, two couches for watching movies, and the beautiful yellow lounge chairs for sunbathing all afternoon. We would definitely stay here again – we loved our stay at Villa Alanca and think you will too!

Blissfully perfect
Our group stayed at villa alanca for one blissfully perfect week. The home is in a gated community, within easy walking distance to St Martin’s best beach, Orient Bay. Near the beach are several restaurants, ranging from beach bar food to gourmet cuisine, also within walking distance. The location could not have been better. The home itself is clean, modern, well-furnished, quiet and secure. It has a fully stocked kitchen, an outdoor propane grill and a large supply of linens and beach towels. Philippe the property manager was helpful and available to answer any and all questions. I have already recommended this property to friends. It will not disappoint.

Villa Alanca — very comfortable and relaxing
We very much enjoyed our stay at this villa. Well equipped, beautiful views, and fully consistent with the VRBO listing and description. A short walk down the hill to Orient Beach (the best of the island!), and a very nice choice of restaurants. And Grand Cas, with its excellent restaurants, is a short ten minute drive. We have been coming to Orient Bay for years, and this will be our villa selection when we next return!

Nice guy, Philippe, really nice properties
Summer 2014 — Discussion in tripadvisor forum about St. Martin and Orient Bay. Member comment about real estate agents on the island: Get in touch with Philippe at this email address — I’ve rented through him multiple times at Villa Goyave and now Villa Alanca. Going to St. Martin tomorrow can’t wait! Really nice properties! He has many others. Nice guy and a straight shooter. He will work with you to meet your budget. Web site:

Beautiful views, great accommodations, nice breeze and sunny
Stayed in July — Wow, what a great place! Villa Alanca met all our expectations. We were 5 adults (my son and my daughter and their spouses and me) and had our own private bedrooms and baths. The kitchen and the living areas of villa were well equipped and furnished. WiFi a big plus and also that the villa had 220V and 110V electricity, easy for us to charge our phones and iPads. Safes in two of the bedrooms. We felt very secure: coded gate into the villa and shutters on all windows (including sliding doors of which there were many) which we could close and make even more secure. However, we felt very safe as the villa is located in a nice area with nice homes and 24 hour security/patrol. The views from the villa are fantastic, the outside pool very welcoming and well used by us, nice patio areas with lounge chairs, and so easy to walk to the beach and enjoy the ocean and the many bars and restaurants. Although we rented a car and ventured to other parts of the island, it was nice to know we were within walking of many places to eat. Cafe Calmos in Grand Case was fun (live music on Thursday nights). The best restaurant (and we could walk to it) in my opinion was the Astrolabe, excellently prepared food, at least 4-star. There is no shortage of wine and beer on the island, but food and liquor are expensive. We went to some grocery stores and everything is imported so, again, fairly expensive. We ate our breakfasts in and ate all our lunches out, one dinner we did at the villa but all other dinners we ate at various restaurants, most of which we could walk to easily. Oh, and besides the great villa itself and all its accommodations, and of course the view , there was a nice breeze, very important to us since we were there in mid-July. We definitely picked the right location and the right villa. I highly recommend it and can assure you that the listing description and photos are accurate. Philippe was great and very helpful. ( I have stayed on the island two previous times, both on the Dutch side, and if I go back to this island I definitely want it to be on the French side and stay at Villa Alanca.)

Wonderful and Relaxing
Stayed in March 2013 — My family and I arrived at Villa Alanca and stayed for 8 nights. The house is beautifully appointed and the view is absolutely spectacular. Philippe worked to provide our every wish and was there for us when we needed anything. The property is more beautiful in person than it is on the website. The cleaning staff was professional and did a wonderful job. Love the location – quick walk to Orient Beach and the beach restaurants. Also quick drive to the fabulous restaurants of Grand Case. Will be coming back for sure!
