                        We were blown away by this property! The pictures look amazing but the house is even better in person. It's in great condition and is laid out in a way that everyone staying has ample privacy. It was so refreshing to wake up to a great pool and breathtaking view. Lee was great to deal with and we had no problems setting up the reservation. Rhonda and the groundskeeper were so nice and helpful and we even enjoyed the "friends" that visited us on the deck each day. We love the Oyster Pond area and the location of La Brise is perfect. It's only a few minutes away from Mama Pizza, Captain Oliver's Marina and Mr. Busby's which are some favorite spots. There are definitely a lot of stairs on the property which is part of the charm! That's just something to consider depending on who is in your party. We will definitely stay here again!

                        If you are looking to renting in St. Maarten, La Brise is the place for you! This home was magnificent, the pictures really don't do it justice. My experience form beginning to end with renting this home has been nothing short of fantastic. Lee, a true professional made my first VRBO rental experience one I will share for years to come. She hands down made myself and my family feel at ease about this sometimes questionable experience when renting abroad. Lee, was easy to talk too and I am sure she is busy, always made me feel that I was a top priority. Upon our arrival we were greeted by the on-site concierge, Rhonda. She greeted us with a warm smile and immediately made us feel at home. We walked through La Brise, the views are magnificent, kitchen amazing, bedrooms (each unique). We couldn't wait to get this vacation started. La Brise for sure met all of our needs. As our first family vacation in awhile, let alone having not lived together in years, La Brise provided that home environment but gave us the space we needed. Perched on top of hill it overlooks the beautiful Oyster Pond. It sits literally on the border of the Dutch/French side. We cooked many family meals, enjoyed cocktails by the pool in day and evening, and quite frankly didn't want to leave. We felt safe as La Brise is gated and the several iguanas we spotted in the trees kept us a ease too:) Overall, I can't say enough great thing about La Brise and its staff. You truly made my Mom's 60th Birthday a memorable one, thank you, thank you. We will be back!!

                        Oyster Pond was the place to be, and this beautiful villa was the icing on the cake! We loved the unique stonework throughout the villa and grounds. Especially the pool area and the cute stone bridge over the pool that seemed to go on forever! Loved the bright colors and spacious rooms inside that were very well decorated. All we needed was there for us. Your full time staff is the best! If you love the beautiful views and mountain breeze as much as we do, then this is the place to be. Till we meet again!!

                        We have rented many VRBO's villas and this one was top-notch. The layout of the bedrooms allowed for a high degree of privacy when desired. Each came with it's own bathroom. The kitchen was well equipped and one of the cleanest we have used. The descriptions of the villa are accurate, down to the friendly guard dogs - Woofie and Bo Bo. The owners gave us a nice list of "Things to Do", which we took great advantage of. The concierge Rhonda, was the best! A short hike away was a local resort and small, well-stocked grocery store - where you could find fresh croissants daily. If we were to return to St. Maarten, we would definately rent this villa again.

                        First of all, I'd like to apologize for neglecting to write our review for so long. Life just gets in the way! My husband and I have been visiting Saint Martin frequently since 2006 and we love Oyster Pond. It was a dream of ours to bring some of our family members with us one day. La Brise made that possible. We traveled with my husband's three younger children (who are adults now) and their significant others; ages ranging from 25-18. We had a blast! The house is beautiful and well proportioned to give just the right amount of space to have quiet time and enough room for a full fledged party! The view is breath taking and the pictures posted of the house and grounds are completely accurate. We made 5 of our 7 dinners at the house because the kitchen/dinning area is extremely functional and we just enjoyed the house so much that once we returned from a day of adventure, we didn't want to leave. Between the view, the pool and the general open lay out of the main house design, it's all there for a fun vacation. We look forward to chance to spend another vacation at La Brise!

                        This was our first time at La Brise - but it won't be our last. The property is a clean, sprawling, multi-level "Hollywood Hills" type of home with great views and top-notch amenities. The photos in the ad undersell the vistas. We woke up every morning to watch the sun rise over St. Barth's on the horizon (we had planned a day trip to St. Barth's but there was too much to do on St. Maarten.). The on-site concierge was gracious, friendly, and helpful - we had total privacy but felt "looked after" too. Oyster Pond is easily accessible, and is one of the few areas that doesn't get cruise ships, so it felt more like a neighbourhood and not too tourist-y. (that said, there were still restaurants within walking distance). We ordered pizza in a couple of times from the local independent, "Mama's Pizza", which was always good. "Big Fish" ( 400 yards from the front gate) was another favorite for dinner. We mostly ate on the French side. The food on the island was easily the best I've ever had. Our only dissappointing meal was the Radisson Blu, where the food was just "OK", but after a week on St. Maarten, you get spoiled for quality and even name brand resorts can't compete with these French chefs! The property was clean and well-maintained with lots of closet space. There are four bedrooms, each with en-suites. Two are in the main house. One is attached to the main house, but has a private entrance and the fourth is in a second house, higher up on the hill with the best views of all. We considered taking that room for ourselves, but our 19-year old daugher talked us out of it and claimed it for herself instead! The owners were easy to deal with and very professional. This house, and this island are a lot of fun.

                        To celebrate my husband 60th birthday we decided to take our 5 young adult children (ages 21, 22, 24, 25 and 28) on vacation with us. After the first day at La Brise all of our children changed their Face book page and added a picture of the house and the view from the patio. That says it all!! La Brise was more that we could have imagined, the house is set up on a small hill overlooking Oyster Pond and the ocean with a view of St Bart’s. It is magnificent! The pool area was gorgeous and felt like a resort. One morning my husband and I went out for coffee and croissants and came back and our daughter was leading an exercise class on the deck with music…it felt like our own personal resort. In addition to the beautiful well keep home, with the lovely Rhonda to call if you needed anything, it is a short walk to Dawn Beach and three great restaurants. All the other reviews were accurate, only the pictures don’t do it justice it is more beautiful than the pictures.

                        My husband and I stayed at this villa for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We fell in love with the pictures on the website and when we actually got to St. Maarten and walked through the house we were not disappointed! This villa is HUGE!!!! Rhonda was great, the two dogs are sweethearts and all the extras that are found throughout the home is a nice touch. Lee was a pleasure to work with as well. The only complaint that my husband had were the stairs because he had to carry the bags up. Also, there was a lot of wind when we stayed but Rhonda said that it in December it was expected. I would most likely stay at this same villa again if we visit St. Maarten in the future. Also, Maho beach is a must to see the planes arriving and departing!!!!

                        For us, value is a function of price, quality and service. We have stayed in villas for more than twice the price that did not provide the value of LaBrise! Privacy, security, view, location and amenities are all important to us. We had all of these at LaBrise. We asked not to be disturbed and Ronda, the property manager, honored that request completely. At no time did we feel unsafe. The view is to die for: you gaze across the marina and ocean....my husband's picture of the ideal caribbean setting! Wonderful breezes most of the time. Two minutes to great restaurants and a few "quick-mart-type" groceries not to mention Dawn Beach. Excellent location to reach anywhere else on the island. The villa is well-equiped and spotlessly clean! Dealing with the owners is a joy...we booked far in advance and our every request was accomodated. And we fell in love with the dogs, Wolfie and Beau Beau....they quickly became companions! Our only caution: if you have any joint or mobility problems, there are lots of stairs here. Having said that, if you are into architecture, LaBrise is quite interesting, with its stone and tile work, multi-levels, and various other details that make it unique. The pictures are accurate but you cannot appreciate the lay-out until you get there! We feel most fortunate to have spent 15 unforgettable nights at LaBrise!
