  • An amazing place to stay on the French side

    "We (6 friends from Germany, Italy and Belgium) had a great stay in this property in Nov/Dec 2013. Everything is matching the descriptions given here and all photos are showing the actual situation, it is actually even better in my opinion... First the location, I usually always prefer the better view over the house features, but this one has both - a magnificent view, located on almost top of the hill overlooking the orient bay and the majority of the other villas in this gated community, and great features. The owners made a great decision to build the terrace railing completely of glass, so you can enjoy the spectacular view from every spot on the dark wooden (!) terrace who is divided into a lovely pool (not super large but still completely sufficient) and a chill-out/ dine area with a little mini bar. Inside the house you have a two floor layout with 3 bedrooms on the upper and a pool view bedroom on the lower floor. All rooms were clean, are designed with taste and not just a bed + chair and thats it. Kitchen is fully equipped including Gas BBQ outside, huge freezer etc. We also loved the washing machine + dryer and the little Roulette-/ Poker-table setup that gave the extra Casino atmosphere :-) The villa is surrounded by a huge lovely green garden with a big fan palm right in front of the terrace. There is an additional apartment right below the villa (as a under-ground floor so to speak) due to the hill side construction, it was booked for one week during our stay but we didn't notice anybody as it has its own access to the garden, also with independent parking outside. The French side is great and we were so happy to have chosen it over the Dutch part which way more touristic and noisy. Great and very fast communication with Claire the owner, who lives in France and provided us a great deal for the 3 weeks. Minor drawbacks (not for us) were pay-TV not working properly during our stay (but honestly who needs this, you are in TV yourself in the Caribbean) and Phillipe, their great and friendly housekeeper and gardener, only speaks a few words in English, but this was also no problem since we had someone with us who is a native speaker. Overall a great choice of property in one of the best areas on the French side. Recommended. Alex from Germany"

  • Private paradise indeed!

    "My boyfriend and I just returned from a week at the villa and we had a fantastic time. From the first interaction, the whole process was simple and easy: the contract, making the payment online in USD, they provided a travel kit of information on things to do and see, places to eat, maps, etc. The view is stunning, and though there is a main road that you can see from the patio, it really doesn't affect the privacy at all. It was easy to get to anywhere on the island from there within 30 minutes. The pool/patio area was maintained on the days that we were out of the villa midday, which was perfect. There were lots of animals around which we took the opportunity to feed while we were there: a dog, a couple of cats and a monkey! I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone. Thanks, Janet!"

  • Daughter's College Graduation Gift/Family Vacation

    "My family & I recently returned from SXM & Paradise Beach Villa. This villa is so beautiful & offer every amenity of being at home. The villa is in walking distance to restaurants & bars we rented a car to see the island. Everyone that I came in contact with at SXM Vacation Rentals was so nice Jill, Gordon, Aubrey & even the owner. If your thinking about renting this condo you won't be disappointed. We are already planning our next vacation to SXM The Mills"

  • Very nice, stunning view of the beach, marina and Marigot harbor.

    "We stayed in Chris's condo for 2 weeks in February. He was easy to communicate with and replyed promptly via e-mail with answers to all questions we had. Titi, the caretaker who lives in the buding, was very pleasant and was always available during our stay. We had no issues with payment or deposit. Everything was as agreed. Condo itself is very specious, with two big areas, one living room and kitchen with balcony with absolutely stunning view of the beach, marina and Marigot; and bedroom with balcony facing pool and a road. We never went on that second balcony or used the pool. Bed was ok, not a luxury resort quality but comfortable enought. Kitchen is well equipped with appliances and anything you might need for cooking. There are no granit countertops or stainless still appliances, but everything is functional and in good condition. Shower room (spacious and has a lot of shelfs) is separate from toilet. The grocery store is within 5 min walk as well as a couple of bakeries (different direction). Marigot downtown and Royal Marina with a lot of options for dinning and shopping are 10-15 min walk from condo. Beach is small (just for this apartment and nearby hotel) and though there are some narrow areas of sandy entree to ocean, there are a lot of rocks and corrals. There are a lot of gorgeous beaches within 20-30 min drive from the condo. Our two favorites: Grand case bay and Long bay. Both on French side and an easy drive. Wi-fi worked great. Overall we had great time and were happy with our logging choice. Some small issues you might want to clerify if they are important to you: we thought that this site said that sofa in the living room sleeps 2, but it seems to be for one (we didn't need it for sleeping, but clerify if you are counting on this sleeping space). There are multiple cable channels in French and none in English. If it's important to you, maybe ask Chris in advance to connect some channels in English if he can."
