Terres Basses Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Beautiful Beach Front Villa featuring a beach side patio and pool. Spend your day on the secluded Baie De Prunnes (Plum Beach). This 2 acre home offers plenty of privacy. Plum Beach Retreat is ideally situated on the beach of Plum Beach. The villa is just steps from the calm, blue waters and white sand beach. It's a perfect property for families, honeymooners or romantic get-away. Maid Service 3 days a week Included in Rates.

Relax on the Patio under the shade of our many Coconut Trees. If you can get one, our gardener James would be glad to open it for you. Take a swim in the ocean and come back for a rinse in the beach side fresh water pool. NOT A PLUNGE POOL *** But a Stand-up and Swim Pool with Depths from 3.5ft to 4.5ft *** (remember plunge pools are deep and most folks cannot stand up in them). This pool is very child and adult friendly. Step out to the ocean side patio and flop down on the lounge chairs, and look up to coconut trees and out to the beach and ocean, then read a book, hop in the pool and watch the ocean. Walk out and swim in the waves and stroll along the beach. It is a top shelf, picture perfect setting.

Start your day with Breakfast on the patio. Take a drive to Marigot (less than 15 minutes) to shop the many French boutiques. Have a Café Latte at one of the boulangerie-pâtisseries. (French Bakeries that look like they are right out of Paris) Take a walk or run on the lightly traveled local roads. Go shelling on the beach. Go Snorkeling in the clear water right out front. Spend the day by the pool and ocean. Enjoy happy hour and sunset on the patio or 2nd floor screened in deck. Prepare a feast at the house or head out to the hundreds of restaurants in St Martin with offerings ranging from Pizza to Most Excellent French Cuisine.


The master bedroom suite is located on the second floor with screened covered deck overlooking the Caribbean Sea, patio and pool. (the master suite has king size bed, single day bed and two folding cots) The screened in deck is the perfect place to set up cots for the kids or additional guests. Two air-conditioned bedrooms off the main floor share a full bath. Full bath and shower off the dinning room. (front bed room has king size bed and the rear bedroom has queen and small day bed) Ceiling fans in all rooms through out villa.

Two dogs are on the property. The dogs are Island Mutts that belong to the caretakers who live in a house away from the main house. Island Mutts are gentle non aggressive passive dogs that a guest would have little or no contact with if they did not want to. But for dog lovers who pet and feed them they would become your best friend. (I am not much of a dog person and don't even notice that they are there.)

What our guests say:

Pictures do your home NO justice! Being here on our honeymoon is easily compared to seeing a glimpse into heaven! The beach is son beautiful! We slept upstairs every single night falling asleep to the sound of the waves. It seriously is a relaxation medication for your soul! This has by far been the BEST vacation either of us have ever been on! We’ve has an amazing honeymoon!

We spent the week simply enjoying every minute here. It was so nice to wake up and have coffee at the beach ever morning. We came to the island for our sons graduation and were so glad to find such a lovely home someone was generous enough to share with us. Daily walks on the beach with the family were priceless. The food is pretty good here too. Now I can say we seen the most beautiful sunset from our very own beach for this week. Wish someday to be able to come back with the rest of the family and enjoy the lovely home and beach again. This home home was enjoyed by all.

this property is a fabulous treasure

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week with 3 adult children and my husband myself and my 3 siblings and a spouse. The house is comfortable and roomy and easily accommodated all 9 of us. Once you step outside the back door you have stepped beyond nice to absolutely fabulous. The house is right on the sea. The sandy beach is steps from the back door. Right outside the back door is a well furnished covered patio where you can sit and watch the ocean and the sunsets. We ate most of our meals here. A stone path leads to a small pool overlooking the ocean and a setting of patio furniture fronting the ocean. The beach is amazing! St Marten is fairly built up and on many of the nice beaches you will find rows of beach chair and lots of people. Plum beach is secluded and there are very few people at this beach. It feels like you have a private seaside paradise. There is nice snorkeling just in front of the house ( enter the water a couple hundred yards down where the rocks are smooth and flat and entry is easy). I cannot believe that we lucked out and were able to rent this very private very nice house in the most amazing setting you can imagine!

Great outdoor space!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this villa. It was so nice to be able to eat breakfast outside each morning looking out at the beach. The outdoor space is really wonderful. We wondered about the one bedroom without air conditioning, but my sister and I shared that one and were perfectly comfortable--we got a nice breeze! Also just want to give a shout-out to the great bookshelves! Read a few good books while we were there and left some of our own behind for future travelers!

Lovely villa on the beach, great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great, relaxing family vacation. The villa was spacious, airy and comfortable. It was lovely to roll out of bed, make a coffee and head down to the pool or the beach for a walk. Tim was very helpful and addressed any questions or concerns immediately. He was even able to provide us with a highchair and pack'n'play for our youngest! We felt very much at home, with internet, satellite TV, fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, bath and beach towels, and North American type of outlets. The villa is located in a secure gated community and located only a short drive to Nettle Bay or Marigot and other amenities. But as other guests have said- we rarely wanted to leave! We would definitely consider this villa again for subsequent visits to St Martin- although we might bring another family with us next time too- there was lots of space for everyone, and would be a great place for large family meals or to relax by the poolside. The screened in deck upstairs was the perfect place to enjoy an evening glass of wine while the kids played.

Just a few tidbits of general advice, especially for those with small children, none of which would affect our decision to return, but was handy to know : the tile floor can be slippery when wet, especially for little people running around/dripping from a swim, so use caution or or put down a "beach towel carpet" as needed. St Martin does have some mosquitoes, nothing major, but bug spray at dawn and dusk is a good idea (or just hang out in the screened in porch in the early evening). The beach is lovely to walk on, build sandcastles, listen to the surf, and dip your toes in the water, but there are also some rocks, so need to be aware if young children want to go swimming in the ocean- there are some spots that are more clear to enter than others (not a really a problem for adults). On the entire island of St Martin, there are only really 2 beaches calm enough for very young kids, one being Friar's Bay (Anse des Peres), which was a short drive away from the villa. We mostly used the pool to swim, which great to relax in. We loved having our own pool!

Overall, we had a great stay, and would recommend this villa to family and friends. We will definitely keep it in mind for our next visit to St Martin!

We just got back from our wonderful stay here at Terre Basse. The location is amazing and you would never have to leave except to get groceries!!. Very private views amazing, especially sunset. Sharlene was good about checking on us during our stay.

We rented car to check out island. Best restaurants are on French side.

The home was very comfy and had everything you would need at your finger tips. The only way you could improve is if you included us on your trip.

This place is GREAT!!!!!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with a group of 5 adults and 1 child and we all fell in love with the house! While one of the fun things about St Martin is exploring all the amazing beaches, it was SO wonderful to have our home-base right on a beautiful beach with our own private pool. The house is older but was super clean, nicely decorated and had lots of comfy furniture. We pretty much lived on the covered porch and by/in the pool! Sharlene stopped by every few days to clean for us and was super nice! You will need your own car for transportation but its a good location for getting to both the Dutch and French side of the island. Definitely recommend!!

Absolutely the Best Location on St. Martin

  • 5 of 5

While the Terres Basses Villa may not be as modern or as flashy as other island properties, its total privacy, comfortable bedrooms, ocean front pool and location on Plum Beach MORE than compensate. We would not hesitate to recommend the villa to anyone travelling as a couple, or with a small group of friends or family. The villa is within easy reach of the new grocery store in Cupacoy Beach, and its clubs and casinos; and is only a short 10 minute drive from the main airport. But be warned, while your intentions may be to tour and explore the island, the charms of the villa, and the incredible sunsets, make it a hard place to leave. As we said in the review title the location of this villa simply cannot be beat. Thanks for a great stay.
