Villa 'Joie de Vie' is a privately owned, 3 BR, fully air conditioned, detached villa with privacy fence, private pool, outdoor shower/rinsing, and sunbathing areas, (no clothes, no problem!) and just steps from Orient beach.

There are 2 king bedrooms which share one double sink- full bathroom. One queen bedroom with sliders adjacent to pool, and with semi-private full bathroom. Additionally, there is a powder room just off the living room area. All furnishings are mostly wood, and very high quality. There is a full kitchen with numerous amenities, and table/bar seating for eight. Also, there is wireless internet access and 120 volt power strips for your convenience in this 220 volt region of the island. A safe for your valuables is also included. This villa is in the heart of the Baie Orientale community which has 24 hour security for added safety. Additionally, this community is gated with manned security at night. There are about 20 restaurants all within walking distance of the villa, and in all price ranges.

About Dan and Nancy

We like to travel mostly to beach destinations, which is why we bought in St Martin, and locally in Ocean City, Maryland USA.

Dan and Nancy purchased this villa in 2006

Why Dan and Nancy chose World

We've been to most of the popular destinations in the Caribbean. Since first traveling to SXM in 1986 we loved it better than the others. The island was so beautiful it continually drew us back, so we bought here. Every time we return to the island we fall in love with it again!

What makes this villa unique

It's nice knowing the beautiful soft white sand beach is a short stroll away, and the finest restaurants are in Grand Case, a 5 minute drive from the Villa. There are also no less than 20 restaurants with a complete variety of menus and price ranges within walking distance from the Villa.

Thanks for a great 8 days...We will be back

  • 5 of 5

Dan..thanks for sharing your place.

When we arrived we tried to call the management company but their phone was broken but we did get in touch with them relatively quickly as we have dealt with them in the past. We drove quickly to the villa and had a brief tour of the essentials as we are familiar with the area.

The villa is very well maintained and has a big block of 110Volt outlets so you can charge everything near the kitchen. It also has wireless internet and satellite TV in the living room. The rest of the unit has the normal 220 volt outlets so you will need converter in those rooms if you want to charge anything in those rooms or need to plug anything in there.

The rooms with the two kings share one bathroom and the room with the queen has a bathroom right outside it's door. The living room has a large hurricane shutter you can shut at night for security as well as the shutter in the queen bedroom.

The area felt very safe and people live on both sides of you. The mosquito's where biting when we where there so be careful at dawn.

Be sure that the management company turns the water on. We had to call them back as there was no water!

Be sure to try Le Peminent in Orient village it is AWESOME.

A gem

  • 4 of 5

We just got back from St-Martin and stayed at the Villa Joie de Vie. This house was great! It was spacious, clean and had all the amenities anyone can ask for. The beach was steps away and the pool was as you see in the pictures. It would have been an added bonus if the pool was heated! We were very happy with our stay and Magalie from the rental company was very helpful and available. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone and would go back!

Five Run Away to Saint Martin

  • 4 of 5

Five retired friends had lots of room in this pleasant villa only minutes walking along a leafy path to Beach La Playa on Orient Bay.The location is certainly a big plus.The villa's well-maintained pool is lovely.We enjoyed eating at the excellent restaurants in "the village" only 5 minutes walk away as well as beside the villa's pool under the veranda.The owner's agents in Saint Martin are very helpful and will answer any and all questions and deal promptly with any concerns.

Our recent trip to St Martian Villa Joie De Vie

  • 3 of 5

Everything was good upon our arrival . After unpacking we decided to go tothe market for groceries . We put down the electric metal "roll up" doors. Upon our return all the electricity on our side of the island had go out . we could not get into the home for many hours ,and most of the food spoiled do to the heat.

The front yard needs to be upgraded and the "Green canvas cover" between the next house and yours looks very out of place .A new fence would go a long way towards upgrading the yard . The inside was good and worked well for all of us . THE SAFE BOLTED TO THE FLOOR UNDER THE SINK IN THE SMALL WATER CLOSET IS THE THE DUMBEST IDEA I HAVE EVER SEEN . ITS A REAL HEAD KNOCKER WHEN YOU GET UP . This would not work for someone who has a disability.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry your vacation got off to a bad start with the power failure, sometimes these things happen unexpectedly on this small island. I know there are some things that can be improved upon, but my main focus has always been on the overall vacation experience for those who choose to rent my villa. I strive to provide all of the creature comforts people have come to expect. That's why i made sure that there are screens on all windows and doors, and cooling in the entire villa. Again, i apologize for the bad things about your vacation experience. Sincerely, dan.

Wonderful Time

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Joie de Vie was Wonderful! Once we arrived we called and were escorted to Joie de Vie.

We had to call the next day to get hot water but that was not a big deal. No TV for the week. No problem because the wifi worked great so we could keep up.

It was nice to have all the amenities (Full Fridge, Coffee maker, Microwave,Stove with hot plate etc.)

The pool was well maintained as was the interior. Maid service was there mid week and Saturday.

Joie de Vie is the perfect place to relax and enjoy life. The walk to the beach is very short.

Thank you Dan for sharing your Wonderful Home with us!
