Villa Happy Blue is situated in the exclusive and gated hillside community of Mont Choisy, better known as the Happy Bay Community, half way between Marigot and Grand Case. This new upscale community on the French side of St. Martin has become the most trendy area with a refined class of Saint Martin visitors in the recent years. The villa is at the northern side of the hill (towards Grand Case), the closest you can get to Happy Bay Beach.

The villa is a 5 min drive from Friar’s Bay, 5 min from Grand Case, the “gourmet capital”, 10 min from Marigot or Orient Beach.

Happy Bay, the last untouched beach on St. Martin

The breathtaking beach of Happy Bay is known by only few people and very little visited. This pristine and secluded beach is also one of the best snorkel spots of the island. Happy Bay can only be reached by foot or by boat. You can either walk along the coast at Friar’s Bay, or take the shortcut at Mt. Choisy.

Friars Bay

Unlike Happy Bay, Friar’s Bay can be reached by car (5 min. from the Villa) and offers two casual beach bar restaurants and some services such as beach chairs & umbrellas, and of course chilled drinks! Friar’s Bay is a very pleasant, relaxing and laid-back beach with a fair amount of powdery white sand, fringed by sea grapes and palm trees. The bay is well protected from the swells and attracts also a few boats and yachts, especially on weekends.

For its calm waters, Friar´s Bay is ideal for a relaxing day on the beach enjoying the French ambience, best at Friar’s Bay Beach Cafe! This beach bar is in the middle of the beach, offers fine French Caribbean cuisine and a wide range of special menus, plus a friendly and efficient service. A great place to hang out and enjoy life!

Fabulous villa overlooking Happy Bay
Villa Happy Blue is a beautiful property with an even better view! The location is fabulous as it is closest to our favorite beach, Happy Bay. The proximity to Grand Case is another benefit, as we enjoyed several nice dinners there. The hills provided a natural “workout room,” as we took a walk each morning, a couple of times down into Grand Case to the bakery for chocolate croissants. Ooh la la! And worked them off walking back up the hill. Enjoyed drinks on the patio watching the sun set most evenings- Paradise!!! We cooked in for breakfasts and a couple of evenings as well. As mentioned in a prior review, the grill was not quite what we were expecting, as it was an older, charcoal variety, but we made the best of it by collecting wood on the way back from the beach, and enjoyed our fresh-grilled fish from the Marigot market. Villa was very neat and clean and everything was in working order, except the hot tub. It was locked, but we wouldn’t have used it anyway. Good quality bath towels, though I would suggest better quality beach towels, and hope they are an addition before our next stay coming May 2017. We, too we’re very nervous about wiring funds for deposit, and this time our bank was even hesitant to do it, but feel secure since we have stayed before. Stephane is very responsive, which is helpful. We stayed as a couple of two, but it would be tight for more than four people, I think.

Villa strepitosa

Just wonderful
We spent a week at Villa Happy Blue and found the villa to be just wonderful. It is just as the pictures on the website depict it The villa is in a very quiet location, although a bit remote if you are looking for nightlife and shopping. The access to two beautiful beaches (Happy Bay and Friar’s Bay) is via a walking trail (it is a bit uphill on the way back). The view from the villa is stunning and the outdoor eating and lounging areas of the villa are incredible. With two couples the villa has plenty of space. The kitchen is modern and well stocked with plates, utensils and cooking pots. There were some spices and coffee filters but make sure you bring anything you really want. There was housekeeping once during the week, which was a very thorough cleaning of the whole villa with new sheets. The area seemed safe although we were told to completely shut all the storm blinds and doors when we left. Air conditioning is via units in each room, which worked very well. Each bedroom had a nice private bath and the king sized bed was comfortable. We would definitely stay at the Villa Happy Blue if we vacation in St Martin again. We did not rent a car and managed, but next time we would rent a car for part of the time Walking to Grand-Case is possible but is a very healthy 20 minute walk with quite a hill on the way back. Taxis have no idea where Villa Happy Blue is located and getting a taxi in Grand-Case turned out the harder than we had thought. The Villa requires cash payment, no credit cards. We were a bit nervous about this and did not want to carry cash for final payment so we arranged to pay the full amount up front via personal check. The property managers were very nice and responsive to requests (although as we found for everything on St Martin it was on island time and very relaxed). There is a gentleman who lives in the ground level of the villa. Friar’s Bay is the more developed beach with two places to rent chairs and eat (we preferred the Kali’s Beach Bar). Happy Bay was more remote and beautiful (there is a guy that rents chairs and runs a stand for beer and BBQ). The only thing that was a disappointment was the BBQ, for some reason we thought there was a gas grill but there is only a very cheap charcoal grill. Another hiccup was a water main issue that was not fixed until our second day so we only got to stay 6 days at the villa. Stephane was able to arrange a villa in Orient Bay for our arrival night.

Best location at Happy Bay
The view from the lanai is amazing, a one million dollar view! Really great! We enjoyed to sit outside, but the last week of our stay we had a lot of mosquitoes. We spent two and a half week there in the Villa with 2 persons. We think with six persons it would be a challenge to cook, because the cooking equipment is not enough. The rooms and space inside and outside of the Villa are big enough. The lanai is much larger than on the photos. It has now an additional wooden patio with deck chairs behind the large table. The other 4 houses did not have that, so that is great. Also the view from the pool is great. Normally it´s a quiet location during the day, but we had every (early) morning some wake up calls from a wild rooster, which has his sleeping place nearby. Other problems in the house, we could not open the kitchen window, the oven did not work and some water gets inside after a heavy rain, in the master bath behind the mirror. The internet is sometimes working and some times not, but during a vacation you do not need it every day. We think this is a problem on the whole island. One evening we had a short power breakdown and after that we had no water for some hours, but the next morning the water problem was fixed. Anyway, Stephane the manager was very nice and very helpful during our stay. Thanks again for that! Hope for the next renters that the other things will be fixed and repaired by the owner. The very beautiful beach of Happy Bay is only 5 min. from the home. We loved it there, very clear water and less people. Also the iguanas in all sizes, which were at the beach and around the Villa were great. The Villa is close to the supermarket in Grand Case (Hope Estate) or to the supermarkets in Marigot. If the traffic to Marigot is horrible, you should go to the market at Hope Estate, 10 min. from the house. You can get everything there, the prices are OK, not really higher than on the Dutch side. Anyway we had a great time there and maybe we will come back some day.

Everything about it was perfect
This place was the best better than the web site shows. Everything about it was perfect, pool was great, jaquzzi was perfect bedrooms were great nice kitchen, eating on the deck watching the sunset or floating in the pool watching the sunset was the best. Friars beach we walked to and also drove to happy bay beach was great.Close to everything orient beach, restaurants etc. You need to rent a car and i would recommned leisure car rental, i travel alot and this was the best car rental for ease. Stephane who handles the villa was very nice and a great help with all kinds of suggestions and met us and directed us to the villa. Can’t go wrong here. I went with the 2 person rental but if you were renting for 6 plenty of room and privacy. Go for it ! Tom and Jean

Great week in Happy Bay!
We stayed there with another couple the week of June 2-9 and had a great time. Everything was just as described and the pictures are a very accurate represenation of the villa. This beautiful villa is in a great neighborhood and the gated entrance gives you added piece of mind. We were close to everything we needed……beach, restaurants and grocery stores. We didn’t have any problems with the villa except we didn’t realize that the electrical outlets were european (220V). Bring a converter if you’re traveling from the US. The owner of this villa does not accept credit cards so we had to wire our deposit to bank in St. Martin which made us a little nervous having never rented a villa before. Stephane, the property manager, manages and owns other villas on the island. We would definitely rent from Stephane in the future.

Happy Holiday
Spacious, comfortable villa.Spectacular view of the Caribbean .Great amenities, beautiful grounds. All the above made for a memorable holiday. The balcony is large with a table and chairs and the perfect place for morning coffee – especially with the wireless internet, it makes the perfect home(away) office. The kitchen is well stocked with toaster, coffee maker and other appliances – as well as basic spices and condiments for a great colombo chicken !!.It also has a washer and drier. Very secure we would recommend this to anyone looking for luxury in St. Maarten.
