  • All we can say is WOW!

    "What a spectacular villa. From the moment we drove through the impressive entry gates and walked through the front door, we knew that we had arrived at some place special. As we entered the front door, we were greeted by Heather & Aldrin with cool, scented towels, which were amazingly refreshing after our cross country journey to get there. But then it got even better. Walking down the stairs (which are covered with a glass ceiling) and stepping in to the main salon, we were captivated by the sweeping sea view and the expansive outdoor terraces. Although the pictures on-line are beautiful, they don't begin to compare to the reality of being there in person. The villa is furnished with impecable taste. We have rented other villas in the past which were nice, but they did not have the same level of sophistication as Mille Fleurs. We were impressed with the furnishings in each of the bedrooms and the beautiful artwork everywhere. We were told that the villa dates back to the late 80s. But with its French Colonial style and grand spaces, it feels like it has been there much longer. It looks and feels exactly like what you would expect a grand old Caribbean home to be like. There were eight in our party and with all the various sitting areas around the pool, it was easy to find your own space to relax or read a book by yourself if you wanted. Of course, our favorite place to be was in the infinity-edged pool watching the boats go by during the day and the amazing sunsets in the evening. Watching the big cruise ships glide past the villa in the evening with their lights on was also a sight to behold. We were pampered all week by Heather who does an amazing job maintaining the villa. And Aldrin does a great job maintaining the gardens--which are extensive (the property is over two acres). He was very nice and we ejoyed talking gardening stories with him. We had some wonderful meals at some great restaurants (Tropicana was our favorite), but to be honest, our favorite meals were the ones we prepared and enjoyed together at the villa. The dining table is outside under a covered roof and we enjoyed dining alfresco in the warm evening air. The week went by much too quickly. And as we were saying our goodbyes to Heather & Aldrin, we wished that we could have had more time to enjoy Mille Fleurs and this wonderful island. We're already thinking about our return."

  • Perfect

    "Just returned from a 2 week stay. This is our 2nd time staying at Villa Santa Clara. The kitchen has been remodeled and it is amazing! We love the location, the layout and everything about this villa. Couldn't ask for anything more. Enjoyed meeting Lily. She was very accommodating and helped out with all of our needs. She brought us a great Bordeaux, which we enjoyed tremendously. Loved the new beach towels that were provided. We even purchased some to bring home with us. Can't wait to go back!"

  • A wonderful hideaway on a very busy island!

    "We loved our stay at this home! Located in Terres Basses, the home is on a peninsula that is probably the quietest part of what has grown to be a very busy, tourist-congested island, with a lot of traffic and cruisers. This home is an escape! With a lovely pool and lots of fruit trees, an outdoor kitchen, and the rooms and bedrooms in different little buildings, it's like a little Caribbean village, where the owner also has her home and art studio, and her sister has her home. The owner and her sister are around, but they're both very busy working, so you have the run of the place. However, the owner does take the time to help orient you if you haven't been to the island before and has lots of good advice should you require it. Terres Basses has its own beach, which is lovely, and there are good restaurants in Cupecoy, right down the road. You're not far from the French capital Marigot, and the spectrum of shops, restaurants and services there. You're also just a skip away from one of the best restaurants on the island, La Cigale. But mainly, this home provides the privacy, tranquility and space to breathe and relax, with warm and informed guides to help you plan your stay (or not). We had my 3-year-old daughter, and this was perfect for her, as one of the huts had a double and single bed, so she stayed with us. And then my Mom stayed in another hut with two bedrooms (she only used one). The owner and her sister are both artists, and a tour of the art studio to see and hear about their work is recommended. I would recommend this for the spectrum of travelers - families with young or older children, couples and groups - except those without a car/scooter, as it might be difficult to get around from here without one. The owner does have dogs and cats, all friendly, who mostly lie around under the bushes, but I'm not sure how she feels about pets. People with disabilities might have trouble getting up a flight of stone steps to the main pool landing. One room can be accessed from there, and another small flight of steps goes up to the other bedrooms. All in all, this is a Shangri-La!"

  • BEST VACATION EVER!

    "My group of 11 ladies celebrated my 50th birthday in St. Martin at Villa Steel Magnolia. The accomodations were fantastic and the location couldn't have been better. There was plenty of room for everyone, 6 bedrooms each with their own bathroom which came in handy with so many ladies:). The beach outside the back gate was beautiful, we were there each morning between 8-830 everyday until 4-430, having the pool at our own Villa was also a treat. Jonas, his wife and Marlon took care of everything we needed. We hired someone to prepare dinner for us 3 evenings, this was such an added benefit after a busy day at the beach:) We have decided as a group to come back every other year, I look forward to it! Thanks Mark your Villa is lovely. I have recommended it to others already."
