Between Marigot and Grand Case, short before Grand Case, the
gated community of Mont Choisy developed slowly with mostly upscale
villas. Villa Friars Bay Blue sits on the southern side of Mont
Choisy, on the West coast of St. Martin. The villa has a full view
of Friars Bay Beach,which is at a short distance down hill. Two
gorgeous Caribbean dream beaches are in the neighborhood of the
villa: Friar’s Bay and Happy Bay. Both are absolutely worth a
visit! For your culinary delights, a 5 minutes drive brings you to
Grand Case with the finest restaurants described in travel
magazines as the gourmet capital of the Caribbean.
– 3 min drive to Friar’s Bay
– 5 min drive to Grand Case
– 10 min drive to Marigot
– 10 min drive to Orient Beach
– 8 min. walk to Happy Bay Beach
– 20 min. drive to Casinos

Friar’s Bay is a wonderful, very relaxing, laid-back tropical
beach with powdery white sand, fringed by sea grapes and palm
trees. Well protected from the swells, the bay attracts also boats
and yachts especially on weekends. The beach can be reached by car;
parking is off ‘street” on the dirt road. Although there is a trail
to Friar’s Bay beach, we advise to get there by car as it is more
convenient than walking.
For its calm crystal blue waters, Friar´s Bay is ideal for
relaxing days on the beach in French ambience. Friar’s Bay is
serviced by 2 beach bars offering beach chairs and umbrellas to
their patrons. A great place to hang out and enjoy life!
Breathtaking Happy Bay is an unspoiled secluded beach, and
excellent for snorkeling. Happy Bay can only be reached by foot or
by boat. You can either walk along the coast starting at Friar’s
Bay Beach Cafe, or take a shortcut at Mt. Choisy. A few yards away
from the Villa is a gate to access the footpath down to Happy Bay
Beach. You will need 10 min. to walk down to Happy Bay and back up
the hill it’s about a 15 min. walk. Although not easy to reach, do
not miss out to visit Happy Bay beach. At least once during your
stay! See this enticing photo album of Happy Bay Beach or enjoy our
Friar’s Blue Villa has it all for Caribbean vacationers: The
incredible view, the closeness of 2 pristine beaches, space for
your entertainment, plus the seclusion and comfort of your private
Nice private villa near Friars bay
The villa is nice with a private pool and a large deck with a beautiful view. The bedrooms are split on 2 floors so it’s nice and private.furnishings in the living room are sparse but we didn’t sit inside much. The TV was all French if that is important to people, we didn’t want to watch tv. There were a few maintenance issues, the powder room sink didn’t work, and the lights in the master shower were burned out.but overall a great place to stay.

Friars Bay Blue Right For Us
This was our fourth year staying at this villa. Yes, it’s showing a little wear, but overall we still enjoy all it has to offer. It is just two of us, but certainly, with three bedrooms, it could accommodate six very comfortably. The manager called when we arrived to be sure everything was in order. We did need to purchase a few wine glasses, as there were none. The gas grill has seen better days, but we got it lit and it worked fine. Pool is awesome as always and we actually miss the chickens that used to roost nearby.

The villa was perfect for our family, ideally situated between two of the best beaches on the island. We explored the east side beaches, but wind waves and crowds made these less desirable for us. The unit is at the end of a row of houses, a “corner” view was better than most on the row. House was clean and well equipped.

A Wonderful Stay at Friars Bay Blue!
We enjoyed staying at this villa very much. Splendid view of Friar’s Bay beach & Happy Bay was easy to access. A great place to enjoy the setting sun. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare your own meals when we wished to do so. The bed in the upstairs bedroom was very poor. Also, we had expected the villa & pool area to have more privacy than what we were lead to believe in the literature. Adding a privacy blind to the one end of the balcony would help so much. Despite this, we would certainly like to come back to this villa again. CS – Ontario

Great property with great views
Loved our stay in Friars Bay Blue, gated community, property exactly as pictured very spacious and clean. Great views and sunsets

Very nice rental
Stayed in December 2015 — This is the 3rd time we visit the island and the 2nd time we rent this house. We enjoyed the house even more this time as a few additions, such as adding a bathroom upstairs, largely contributed to it. The house has a fantastic view, is functional, comfortable, and quiet.

Great property, view and location
Friar’s Bay Blue has been a great place to stay on the French side of St. Martin. This was our third year at this villa, and it remains are very nice property for the value. We love the pool and the upper balcony for dinners…the gas grill comes in handy. This villa does have a great view of Friar’s bay, and it is an easy walk down to Friar’s Beach Cafe and one of the nicest beaches on the island (we think). Also, Happy Bay is a quick 7-10 minute walk as well. This year, it is super dry, so not as lush as usual.

Great Stay Again At Friar’s Bay Blue
This was our third stay at this villa and we continue to enjoy the space and location, almost as much as the first time. The view of Friar’s Bay – the beach, the water, the activity is wonderful. The villa shows a little wear (was newly redone on first stay) but is fine overall. Management promptly attended to a few small problems at the start. We had another great week. The proximity (an easy walk for us) to both Friar’s Bay and Happy Bay are what make this the ideal place. Improvements – light is burned out in the pool and it didn’t seem like the filter pump was actively working, but pool was cleaned twice while we were there. Hope to come back again in the future.

Had a great time.
I would highly recommend Friars Bay Blue. Great location between Friars Bay and Happy Bay and in close proximity to Grand Case. Recommend the grocery store “Simply” market at north end of Grand Case and there are many great restaurant options in town. Villa had wonderful views, was clean, nice pool, BBQ, updated bathrooms and priced reasonably. We stayed with another couple and all of us agreed we would come back.

Great vacation !
We rent the villa from February 26, 2015 to March 9, 2015. It was very clean. You have everything you need. The view on the bay is fantastic. The toaster broke and Felicia, who is working hard for you, change it on the same day. One day, we had some problem with the water. Because of that, the property management company did to us an excellent offer that we can not refuse. They will doing their 110 % for satisfying yourself. You can trust the property management company : Saint-martin rentals. Thanks to Felicia and Lydia !

Quiet location, beautiful views. Walk out and enjoy your private pool. Close (5 min) from all of the fantastic dining options in Grand Case.
Greg F. Nov 2014
We will return!
Friars Bay Blue is perfectly situated between Friars Bay beach and Happy Bay beach. Walking distance down the trail to both = 5 to 10 min. Beautiful walk down! The pool and back decks are secluded and very private. The villa itself has all you could need including fully stocked kitchen (minus food that is). We will return!

This villa is in a great location. Very close to Grand Case where we ate dinner every night and within a short driving distance to Orient Beach and Marigot. We could walk to Happy bay and Friars bay with a little effort. The villa was very clean but we had maintenance issues. A sliding door lock didn’t work and we had workers there twice to fix this. Then we had a water leak from the air conditioner with workers another 2 days. Felicia the property manager was very kind and helped with all the issues promptly. I also would have like to have a dining table and some more furniture in the main living area.

Another Great Stay At Friar’s Bay Blue Villa
This was the second straight year we stayed at this villa. My wife and I enjoyed it as much a year ago. We were met at the villa to provide us keys and a quick tour. There had been a ton of rain so there was a small leak in one of bathroom ceilings, but someone was out to fix it the week we were there (we used one of two other bathrooms).
Pool was great…someone came to clean it twice during our stay. We used the gas grill also a few times. Spectacular view of course of Friar’s Bay. There was loud music Saturday and Sunday nights from the beach, but all part of the vibe. Yes, there are roosters that seem to crow whenever, but we take it all in with the plentiful sun and interesting all the other nature around us… hummingbirds, interesting hermit crabs, etc. We had no issues with burned out lights per other review, and we look forward to staying again sometime!!!

… Oh what a view and great value !
I generally don’t write reviews but Friars Bay Blue really deserves a high five. As an experienced Saint-Martin traveler (I’ve been coming for the last 10 years), FRIARS BAY BLUE far exceeded my expectations. The VIEW was extraordinary overlooking the perfect Caribbean sea.
We spent countless hours just taking in this variation of tones of blues. Really incredible! I love the Happy Bay area. Close to Friar’s Bay (with Full Moon party at Kali’s) and to Happy Bay (the last real beach of the island in my opinion).
It was my first stay in this villa.Owner rep was very helpful and speaks perfect English (Thank God). Each room has its ensuite bathroom, there is a large living room, a real gas grill by the pool, upscale lounge chairs. The house is realy fully equipped with all one needs. I got really great value for my money and I am coming back! Not suitable for wheelchairs though.
