Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: Our first visit to Sint Maarten in October of 2008. After falling in love with the island, we began to search for a vacation home. We discovered 'Chateau Jolie Vue' in late 2009 and made a purchase. HGTV followed us on our search for an 'International House'! We purchased the home because it was in a great location, had plenty of room for our family and friends, and had the best view on the island! We bought it as a fixer-upper and knew we had a lot of work to do, but when it was finished it would be worth it. Now, we have built our dream house and enjoy traveling to the island frequently!
