Villa Comtesse is a Hidden Jewel in Orient Bay!
"Villa Comtesse is a wonderful place to stay while on vacation in St Martin! We rented the villa for ten days for just the two of us but it is big enough for a large family or two couples. Everything we could possibly need was there and it was such a comfortable place to stay and relax. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need to cook a nice dinner and we grilled out in the back garden a few times while we were there. There is a very nice garden area right outside the back door and we sat out there every morning for coffee and every evening just to relax and talk about our wonderful day. The pool is within footsteps of the villa, although it was always very quiet and only a few people taking advantage of it. The beach and restaurants/shops at Orient Village are within a 5 minute walk and it was nice to know we never had to go far on any given day. The small grocery market(Casino is the name) was wonderful and the prices compared with the large grocery store which is only about a 5 minute drive away going towards Grand Case.
If you are wanting to watch television with English as the language, instead of French, there are about ten channels that are in English. We brought our Google Chromecast adaptor and plugged it into the side of the tv and we were able to watch Netflix or Hulu at night after returning home from dinner.
Greg(and his wife), our concierge for the owners, were there to meet us immediately upon our arrival and helped us with any questions we had on our vacation. There were never any problems with the villa the whole time we were there and that was a wonderful thing!
The owners have taken great care of this property and I highly recommend this to anyone wanting a relaxing vacation. My only hope for giving such a wonderful review of Villa Comtesse is that it is not booked the next time we want to go down there. It's a little hidden jewel:-)"

"Great break from Canadian winter! Our first family vacations since the birth of our baby were close to perfect thanks to this amazing accommodation. The house is clean, comfortable, well equipped and we enjoyed very much the pool and outdoor facilities. The little village of Orient bay is at walking distance so is the beach. Having a car is however necessary if you wish to see the most of St-Martin. Sonia and Martial were very welcoming and helpful hosts. We recommand this proprety if you are looking for casual, relaxing and amazing vacations. Thank you again Sonia! Sabine, Simon and Alexandre
Une belle façon d'échapper à l'hiver canadien!
Des premières vacances en famille quasi-parfaite avec notre bébé de 3 mois grâce à ce magnifique logement! La maison est propre, bien équipée et nous avons bien profité de la piscine et des installations extérieures. Le village de la Baie d'Orientale et la plage sont à quelques minutes à pied. Une voiture est toutefois fort utile pour visiter Saint-Martin. Sonia et Martial sont des hôtes chaleureux,courtois et avenants. Nous recommandons fortement cette propriété si vous désirez passer des vacances relaxantes sans souci. Merci encore Sonia et Martial ! Sabine, Simon et Alexandre."

"We loved the villa and the location. Anna was a pleasure to work. Three adults and 2 kids. Perfect space with 3 bedrooms, the pool and hot tub were perfect with the kids. When the adults wanted to relax, the kids had the pool and hot tub to keep them occupied. 1 minute walk to the beach and the Waikiki beach bar. We had been to the islands many times, but 1st time with the kids. Anna is a wealth of information and pointed us to new restaurants which we enjoyed. The villa is as described, no complaints or recommendations, maybe 1, an automatic ice maker, ran out of ice for the cocktails a few times. My family and I thank you Anna for making it a wonderful vacation."

"We recently stayed at Villa Belle Vue and had a wonderful time. The home is clean, comfortable, and private. It has a wonderful huge pool with an amazing 180 degree view of the island and ocean. We did have an issue with the A/C going out in one bedroom, but with as cold as the main part of the house gets... we just left the door open and used the fan. It wasn't that big of an inconvenience. We truly enjoyed all the amenities of this home. If a quiet private vacation home is what you are looking for... then this fits the bill. We will definitely be returning.
Pauline, the property manager, is wonderful and a joy to speak with."
