Villa Lucie at Happy Bay & Friar’s Bay – St. Martin – ID:27

Villa Lucie is a peaceful, luxury, yet affordable vacation home located in the exclusive Happy Bay community on the French side of St. Martin. The 3 bedroom 2 bath villa offers a wonderful relaxed modern setting to experience an exceptional vacation for one to three couples. It is one of only very few rentals in this upscale gated residential neighborhood, blessed with breathtaking views in all directions.


The quiet and secluded location at Mont Choisy, better known as Happy Bay, has become trendy in the recent years with a refined class of St. Martin visitors, both for its secure location and the close proximity to two pristine tropical dream beaches – Friar’s Bay and Happy Bay. The short distance to the gourmet village of Grand Case and to popular Orient Bay Beach is another great advantage of this location.

Villa Lucie is close to smooth hilltop of Mont Choisy, overlooking Happy Bay and Friars Bay. It is situated on the southern side of Mont Choisy. Villa Lucie is situated in a very exclusive gated purely residential villa community. It features 3 spacious bedrooms, modern open living inside with lots of comfort, and extremely well appointed outdoor living topped by superb panoramic views.

Quiet Place
The villa is same as it looks on the pictures. We were satisfied with our stay. It is in quiet place just few minutes away from restaurants and shops.

Magnificent View
The wonderful view of Friar’s Bay and Anguilla from Villa Lucie was as we had remembered it from our first visit 5 years ago. The villa remains in wonderful condition and is extremely comfortable. The location on Mont Choisy is great and an easy walk down the hill to either Friar’s Bay beach with its trendy Friar’s Bay Beach Club or the more secluded Happy Bay beach. The restaurants of Grand Case and the other beaches on the island are a very easy drive.

The most spectacular sunsets!
Stayed in February — We have just retuned home from St Martin and our 3rd visit to the lovely Villa Lucie. The views from the villa are breathtaking both morning and night. We saw rainbows and stars as if we could touch them! And every night at 6pm we raced up from the beach to see another spectacular sunset. The villa is comfortable and easy to live in. The bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms are well designed and pretty. We love how each room has its own balcony. We often prepared dinner at home with the barbecue or some pasta and salad and ate on the veranda. We love how close the villa is to our favourite beaches: Friars Bay, which has a calm beach and very good restaurant, and Happy Bay, which is breezy, wavy and a little wild. The little town of Grand Case is a short drive away and is an Island-wide destination for fine dining, drinks on the beach, and the famous “Carnival” on Tuesday nights. I suppose the best thing we can say about Villa Lucie, is that we have booked again for 2015! Susan
