It is one of the best places to savour the serenity of Caribbean life on the French side of St Martin at very step inside your private three bedroom, two and a half bath villa and take in the relaxing, warm and friendly atmosphere.

The architectural style is Mediterranean, the interior is a perfect mix of Caribbean, European and Asian styles with exotic woods, leather, beautiful, handmade decorative pieces, and special terra-cotta floors throughout.
Situated on the hillside in French Cul de Sac, half way between Orient Bay and Grand Case, Villa Côté Sud is a peaceful oasis.

ReviewsWrite a review
My wife and I stayed here in July for a week, and loved it! The villa was just even better than pictured, and we will no hesitate to stay here again. The concierge, Greg, took wonderful care of us, and was able to answer all our questions and handle the very few minor issues we had with no problems. Before and after booking, Gilles was very helpful, attentive, and fast to respond to any questions I had. The location is very convenient to both Orient and Grand Case, and has a beautiful view of Orient Bay. The well appointed kitchen made it easy to prepare our own meals when we wanted, and the grocery is very convenient, which allows you to do so. My only suggestions at the time would have been to add an AC unit in the main living room (the main room can get hot in the summer, although the rooms stayed cool if you keep the doors closed, but it seems the owner has since installed one), and to have longer beach towels, and the ones provided were fairly short.

Owner response: Hi Matt, thanks for your reply and advises. Effectively we have set a A/C in the living room in last July. In the same time, we have purchased larger beach towels. We have also enhance the pool deck. Hope you can come back soon. Best. Daphnée and Gilles
My husband and I stayed at the villa for a week in Sept. Having stayed in villas in the area for more than 15 occasions in the past, it was just what we were looking for. Fully stocked house with every appliance you would need. Although we only cooked one dinner at the villa, it was nice to have all the conveniences including the large French supermarket in a 2min drive. The descriptions and photos are accurate, so you can not be disappointed. Perhaps not the luxury elegance you may be accustomed to finding in a 4 or 5* hotel, but very comfortable, clean, and what you would expect as superior standards for island living. If we come back to the island again, we would definitely stay here again. (Also note, I have never written a review in the past, however I am a well seasoned traveller and have stayed from budget hotels to some of the best +$1000/night hotels in the world, but for the first time felt compelled to write a review as I was quite satisfied with our stay.)

Owner response: Dear Clara, thanks for your review. We really love Saint-Martin and our villa Coté Sud and we are happy to share it with respectful and exclusive travellers just like you. We will be happy to see you again next year. . Last summer we have installed an air conditionner in the living room as well as nice lightings in the garden ; we have also enlarge the deck. And we will continue to improve the villa over the next months. Best. Daphnée and Gilles

Spectacular property and service
Spectacular property and service
This property is amazing with service to match. The owners of Villa Cote Sud really took care of us, especially considering that this was our first trip to St. Martin. The rental car agency that they recommended to us met us at the airport with a sign displaying our name, walked us to the car and then drove ahead of us to lead us to the villa. When we arrived, Greg, the concierge, was waiting for us and gave us a tour around the house. He even made dinner reservations for us, checked in with us later in the week and delivered a couple electric adapters to us quickly after our request. The property is a bit of heaven - remarkable views, privacy, very well decorated, nice pool and well maintained. We (my wife and I) highly recommend Villa Cote Sud.

Perfect villa in an ideal setting
Perfect villa in an ideal setting
My husband and I stayed at this beautiful villa three weeks last month. It was our eighth trip to St. Martin and our third stay at Villa Cote Sud, and we have already booked it for three weeks next February. We cannot imagine staying anywhere else now. It is very easy to work with Gilles to arrange the booking, and Greg and Nelly, the caretakers, are extremely attentive and easy to reach by phone or email in the event we need them during our stay. They leave nothing to guess-work. We were able to dictate when we wanted maid service, and the villa was kept clean and neat. The location is ideal; it is a short drive to either Orient Bay or Grand Case, where the selection of wonderful restaurants is amazing. The villa overlooks the ocean, and the view from the villa is breath-taking whether it is the sunrise at dawn or the brilliant white sailboats. The neighborhood is quiet, and the pool and deck area is private. The garden plants produce brightly colored blossoms that attract the most fascinating birds and insects. The accommodations of the villa itself are comfortable and spacious for us. The kitchen is adequately furnished to prepare complete meals at the villa. Having a washing machine is incredibly convenient; we can stay three weeks, but pack for only a few days! The master bedroom and bathroom are comfortable, and it is especially nice to have an extra "powder room" down the hall. One aspect of this villa that was lacking in the others where we have stayed is the open-air quality. There are a single sliding door in the kitchen that opens onto the deck, a quadruple sliding door in the living room, and a double sliding door in the master bedroom (the other bedrooms have them also). On the opposite side of the living room is another sliding door. So the effect is a cross-ventilation that keeps the villa very comfortable. If nature doesn't provide enough breeze, Gilles has recently installed two large ceiling fans in the kitchen and living room, and the bedroom has an air conditioner. The description and the photos on the website are accurate. We would definitely recommend this villa to friends and family. We recommend mid-morning walks on Orient Beach, lunch at Waikiki (have dessert -- Greg is the pastry chef), dinner at Le Pressoir, Bistrot Caribes, Il Nettuno, L'Astrolabe, and Le Tastevin. We also like the Grande Marche on the Dutch side, but the Super Marche in Hope Estate, a couple of minutes from the villa had great fresh tuna.

Owner response: Thank you for taking time sending this review and for returning to Villa Coté Sud once again. We are very happy to share our villa with you every year. Daphnée & Gilles
The property was exactly as advertised, and we had a fantastic stay in December. The location was perfect as we were only a 5 minute drive from beaches, fantastic restaurants in Grand Case and a big grocery store. The kitchen, living area and decor was well organized and the outdoor area was beautiful! We spent many afternoons lounging by the pool while enjoying the garden, the view and the breeze. Very relaxing! The property was also very private and the caretaker, Greg, was always available if needed. We'll definitely return to St. Martin, and hope to enjoy this house again!

A great place to spend a vacation in St. Marteen !
This is our second stay at Villa Cote Sud and will not be our last. After visiting St Marten and Anguilla every year for 10 years, we have stayed in many villas on theses islands. Villa Cote Sud is well appointed and has everything you need - ocean views, total privacy, a well appointed kitchen, a large swiming pool etc. The villa is lovely and decorated with care, and is well maintained. The view is outstanding. This villa is well located, very easy to get to, close to beaches and restaurants etc. The new furnitures are great addition this year etc. A great place to spend a vacation in St. Marteen !

About the owner: We are a family of 5. We are living near Paris in France and are working in the events business.
Why the Owner Chose Orient Bay:
We've been visiting Saint-Martin since 1997. We've renting several villas in different places before buying our own one. We now definitely prefer to stay in a villa up on the hill with the great sea view, fresh air and almost no moskitoes.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We first loved the unique sea view from the villa, from Pinel island to Saint Barth with Orient Bay beach in the middle. The colors of the the sea are tremendous from dwan to dusk. We secondly enjoyed the architecture of the villa, having every rooms with a driect access to the terrace with its swimming pool and its wide sea view. We lastly appreciated the location of the villa, close to the places we are going everyday: Pinel island, Orient bay beach , le Gallion beach, Grand Case restaurant area and Hope state shopping area.
