Super accueil, Bruno est très charmant et désireux de faire plaisir à ses hôtes
La maison est très bien entretenue et parfaite pour 6 personnes. Cuisine hyper bien equipée. Situation idéale et à proximité de belles plages(le gallion) et de nombreux restaurants et du départ de plongée. Un petit Casino vient compléter l offre. Pas forcément besoin de louer un véhicule mais nécessaire si on veut visiter les autres belles plages. Conseil: îlet Pinel, baie rouge, le gallion, baie aux prunes Si vous voulez visiter des musées, passez votre chemin car sur cette île c est plage, snorkelling, plongée, plage, etc…

Couldn’t Have Chosen a Better Place
We rented this villa for our family of 4, including our teen son and daughter, This was our first visit to St. Maarten, so we were nervous about every decision we made. Many times during our 10 day stay, we talked about how lucky we were to have picked the right place in the right location. Bruno and Patricia were absolutely lovely and very responsive, making themselves available to answer any questions. They met us when we arrived and the place was immaculate and just as beautiful as the pictures. It was very hot weather while we were there, but if the ceiling fan circulating the air wasn’t enough to cool us (which it usually was), there were air conditioners in every room, including the living room. There was a nice washing machine and a clothesline in the backyard as well as a fold-away rack, so laundry was easy. The kitchen was well-equipped, including a few spices. Wi-fi worked well and we watched Netflix more late evenings than I’d like to admit. There was also a safe, where we stashed our passports and any cash or credit cards we didn’t need. We spent quite a bit of time around the lovely salt water pool (so much better than chlorine), which they cleaned once during our stay, although it didn’t really need it. It was even more beautiful at night! Orient Beach was a short walk away – maybe 5-10 minutes – so it was nice to come and go individually if we weren’t all in the mood to be at the beach or to drive elsewhere. And there was a small grocery store along the way, where they were always nice, despite how pitiful our attempts at French were. (We became addicted to the fresh baguettes available there every day.) Looking at the pictures again, I’m reminded that after 10 days on the island, this relaxing villa was the hardest thing to leave behind!

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour d’un mois dans cette très belle villa qui correspond tout à fait au descriptif. Très bien entretenue , et où les soirées étaient particulièrement agréables sur la terrasse au bord de la piscine magnifiquement éclairée. Merci à Bruno pour ses conseils qui nous ont permis de découvrir et d’apprecier cette très belle île.

Un séjour de rève
Nous avons passé un super séjour à Saint Martin dans cette maison ou l’on se sent immédiatement bien. Cuisine très bien équipée, salles de bain au top, literies confortables, terrasse zen, pulvérisateur anti-moustique efficace, piscine agréable… bref un petit coin de paradis. Cerise sur le gâteau, Patricia et Bruno sont très sympas et pleins de bons conseils pour l’organisation du séjour et fournir les bonnes adresses !

Awesome villa and location for a perfect holiday in St Martin
Stayed in June 2015 — My friends and I rented this villa for 2 1/2 weeks. The villa was the perfect place to unwind and use as a base to explore St Martin. The villa is well appointed, very clean, and has everything one would need to make it an awesome stay! It was exactly as described and as shown in the pictures. It was great to have a Nespresso coffee on the patio every morning! Orient Bay was ~1 block away and an easy walk to the village, beach and numerous restaurants. The private pool was an oasis and provided a great area for entertaining. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this villa. Bruno and Patricia were excellent hosts! I highly recommend this villa for the perfect holiday in St Martin. I will definitely be back!

Wonderful Villa and Location
Stayed in December 2014 — We rented this Villa for a two week family vacation. (6 adults). The villa was exactly as pictured. It was clean, well appointed and very nicely decorated. We were especially pleased to learn it has a backup water reserve tank. (As the island does lose water from time to time.) The two dedicated parking spots were a wonderful bonus. The fenced and gated pool and entertaining area gave us the option to stay around the pool and relax with our family; however all of Orient Bay is just a short walk away. Bruno and Sylvie are wonderful hosts. We will be back!

This was a superb home all we could wish for!!!
Stayed in June 2013 — We were absolutely blown away by this charming house! And honestly we are persons that usually do not return to the same location and country no matter what experience! However we will definitely comeback here! All our expectations were met and it is amazing how extremely friendly helpful the owners Bruno and sylvia are!! Loving and caring attending to our every need. The location is the best you can have just a couple of minutes walk to the beautiful beach of orient bay and so central for other beaches. The pool is a great way to start the day and end it. Wonderful house wonderful island wonderful people wonderful everything. A five star home for a reasonable price!!! Worth the money!! And once again I can recommend it to anyone!!! Kids or not young or older it’s really the perfect get away!!!! Thx for everything.

Villa magnifique et plages de reve
Stayed in June 2013 — Il est rare de mettre la main sur une villa aussi magnifique, fonctionnelle et comptant 3 chambres à coucher. Piscine privée, lumières extérieures avec une cour intime, vous y passerai de belles soirées. Positionnée tout près de la plage (moins de 10 minutes) cette villa a tout pour vous séduire. Et que dire des propriétaires … ils sont accueillants, sympathiques et toujours prêts à vous aider et vous conseiller. Pour nous c’est définitivement une belle découverte que nous n’hésiterons pas à relouer. Merci Bruno et Sylvie!

Fantastic Villa Rental in Orient Bay
Stayed in June 2012 — My husband and I with our 2 little kids had te pleasure of staying here for 10 days. We could not have asked for anything more! The unit was immaculate, and decorated very simple and modern but yet still cozy. The outside is to die for! We the privacy to enjoy or own private pool, and in the evening sitting pool side with the flood flight and palm tree light was truly a magical feeling. The location was perfect to the beach as well as a 7 minute drive to Grand Case for dining. We must also mention the little square by the beach in Orient also had superb restaurants that where extremely child friendly. Sylvie and Bruno made us feel like guests in their home and nothing like renters. We all have different standards and perceptions of “rating”, we are Platinum Spg members (used to 5 hotels), this villa deserves 5 stars as well!
