Simpson Bay villa description

Villa Velaire is your home away from home, only better! Be sure to check out our website at www.VillaVelaireStMaarten.com for more information.

Perched along the ocean cliffs just above Simpson Bay in Pelican Key, St Maarten, stands Villa Velaire - a private two bedroom/2.5 bath rental villa. The Villa, recently renovated and completely redecorated in September of 2013, uses an eclectic mix of British West Indies and Balinese design to harmonize with both the Caribbean style architecture and the tropical location.

Just inside the entry at Villa Velaire, off to the right is the fully equipped gourmet kitchen featuring granite countertops. Should you choose to stay in and prepare breakfast, an afternoon cocktail or dinner - it won't be such a chore, as you will find all the comforts of home - a full size refrigerator, four- burner range/stove, dishwasher, blender, sauté pans etc.

Just past the kitchen stands the open floor living and dining area, the heart of this villa. Casual fabrics were used for a more relaxed feel, focusing on quality and comfort. The porcelain floor tiles in the living area were dressed with a fun nautical designed rug. Many of the furnishing in both the living and dining area were brought in from Bali with added wicker accents to define the transitional style.

Just beyond the living and dining room stands a 10 foot deep covered outside terrace. The covered terrace serves as a sitting and dining space, perfect for a respite from the afternoon sun or alfresco dining with the most magnificent views. For the sun worshippers, there are four teak lounge chairs to enjoy relaxing by the private pool, watching the cruise ships sail away or just listening to the sound of breaking waves along the cliffs. By night, enjoy a favorite glass of wine, stretch out and stargaze, or watch the moonrise from the Terrace.

Back inside the villa, on the second floor, you will find the two air-conditioned king suites widely separated for exceptional privacy (perfect for couples traveling together). Both bedrooms feature en suite baths and custom designed four post king-size beds. The high vaulted ceiling imparts a grand sense of scale and spaciousness. Attached to the second bedroom is the meditation/massage room and private balcony overlooking the pool terrace and Caribbean. Call one of the many island massage therapists for your private in-home massage - Can you thing of a better way to start your vacation.

Villa Velaire is furnished with your comfort in mind without sacrificing its artful elegance and style. This rare oceanfront villa, located on the beautiful island of St Maarten, will fulfill most vacation wish lists.

                                This lovely home by the sea is in a spectacular location, perfect for viewing all the sea faring vessels that go by! It is close to all amenities that you could need and it is filled with many amenities you want in a vacation home! The housekeeper is a delightful woman who takes great pride in making sure this lovely space will be in tip top shape for your stay! There are very few place on the island that offer the amazing location that this one does! I highly recommend it!

                                I stayed in this beautiful home with 2 friends and enjoyed every minute of my 8 day stay! The view from the pool is stunning and the house is stocked with absolutely everything you could ever want or need to make you feel at home. The neighborhood is very quiet and sleeping with the windows open to only the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep in the beautiful, comfortable bedrooms is an added bonus. The notebook with information about the house and the area is extremely useful and packed full of terrific recommendations. The only drawback is that there was not enough time in the week that we stayed to get in everything we wanted to see and do ... guess that means we'll have to come back! I look forward to it and would very highly recommend this lovely property to anyone visiting St Maarten.

                                What an amazing stay we had in St. Maarten! The perfect getaway for us. We traveled with another couple and had such a great time. Not only was the house beautiful but so comfortable. We really had to motivate ourselves to even leave. With the private pool, amazing views, perfect kitchen for homemade meals there was no need. Of course, very glad we did as we were able to find some wonderful spots nearby for dinner and drinks and you really must walk round and see the beauty. Perfect stay! Thank you...we look forward to next year! We are already picking out 2014 dates!

                                My wife and I just got back from a week at Villa Velaire and it was one of the best trips we have ever gone on! We are new to the whole rental home thing and VRBO, but Kim made the process so seamless. From calling her on the phone, to answering all our questions, to the car rental - it was perfect. The home was recently purchased and redecorated and you can tell the owners put a lot of thought into everything - the kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, pan, anything that you would need to make a nice dinner - we actually only cooked breakfast a few times at the house, we had several breakfasts at Bon Appetite (they have the best coffee) and had some great dinners in Maho and Grande Case. We went to the beaches most days, but being able to come home to our private pool was fantastic, that was one of the reasons that my wife and I decided to not stay at a hotel and explore the home rental aspect. We were tired of screaming kids and not having an escape. The massage rooms was also a nice touch. I have never seen anything like it before, so it was really great to be able to get a massage overlooking the ocean - we both got a massage with Brain at a Touch of Hands - highly recommend him! All in all, this was a perfect trip, we would definitely recommend Villa Velaire to any traveler visiting St Maarten. Thanks again Kim for making this so memorable!

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2013

                              About the owner: Our names are Ron and Kim. Ron is in the Hotel/Restaurant business and I am in the marketing/advertising business. We purchased the house with our good friends Steve and Meredith. Steve is a General Contractor and Meredith works for the state. Steve and Meredith recently welcomed their first son.

                              Why the Owner Chose Simpson Bay:
                              You will love the views of the Caribbean Ocean - the house has such a good feel, you never want to leave

                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                              Love the private pool overlooking the Caribbean. The location is also fantastic, close enough to all the action in Simpson Bay (you can walk to the Red Piano, Bon Appetite, the Hollywood Casino), but far enough away to enjoy some quiet relaxation.
