At the end of a beautiful private Caribbean beach road is Le Mas des Sables, a unique and beautiful villa with a feel of a private country home in the South of France. The elegant entrance with its traditional iron gate, coral stone paved courtyard and stonewalls is the perfect showcase for this charming villa and its beautiful gardens. Exotic Moorish arches inset with wooden shutters and touches of Creole fretwork frame the entrance. The moment you approach the front door; the stunning panoramic views begin to unfold. With the advantage of a gentle hill setting, the view is a very intimate experience in an incredibly private setting away from the clamor of daily life. The green mountains, deep blue sea and sky, the sandy beach, Anguilla and tropical foliage flow like a painting, creating a perfect setting for communing with nature.
Built on multi-levels to take advantage of the setting, the design creates privacy from every angle. The mood is an exotic blend of Mediterranean with French Creole/Caribbean style. Beautiful native stone work flows through the structure and grounds. The terraces and pool area are dotted with spaces for seating and dining. The fully air-conditioned great room, open to the view and breeze, is a mix of exotic with contemporary lines and serene colors. Travertine floors run throughout. The fabulous French country kitchen is straight from a design book on Provence. Unique pieces like the antique French butchers table, charming accessories and stylish French stove create the perfect atmosphere to prepare gourmet meals. Garden and sea view surround the kitchen.
The three bedrooms, with en-suite bathrooms, are stylishly unique and exotic; each with a different design theme. All have sea views. One bedroom is on the first level, yet very private. The two upper level bedrooms each open to the terrace from both the bedroom and the bathroom. Both bedrooms have private terrace seating. Each of the bathrooms is a work of art in a mix of exotic tiles and fixtures.
Although quite secluded you are a short walk to Baie Rouge Beach and just steps from the snorkeling site, Trou David. You are two minutes to Baie Nettles fabulous restaurants and seven minutes to the charming French capital of Marigot with restaurants, the Creole Market, galleries and shopping. You are 10 minutes to the airport and 30 minutes to both Grand Case and Phillipsburg.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Internet on the island can be inconsistent and signal strength is generally lower than in developed cities. As our guests in St. Martin, be prepared to work less and relax more.
Satellite television in St. Martin can be spotty so remember to set your DVR to record your favorite shows before leaving home.
Set at the end of a private road that ends at the beach, Le Mas des Sables is super private and delightfully peaceful. Yet you are just steps from the sand and surf.
The fabulous French country kitchen is a talented amateur cooks dream; complete with antique French butchers table and stylish gourmet French stove.
The barbeque grill utilizes charcoal, not gas and is tucked around the backside of the living space, just a few steps from the kitchen. The view from this BBQ area; however, is spectacular with the town of Marigots night lights on display.

The Villa was exactly as portrayed on the website and the Luxury Retreats staff took care of anything that we asked of them. One instance of note was that we had an electrical problem and the villa caretaker was on vacation. We called our Luxury Retreats rep and the issue was addressed immediately. The first response was within 5 minutes and the repair was done within 2 hours.
Lovely villa with a beautiful view, and charming caretaker. Very conveniently located.
We had a great vacation, appreciated the timely vacation pick up and efficiency of having our car rental on site. Appreciated the arrival care package and the service of our concierge.
We enjoyed massages and a chef's dinner as well. Philippe the onsite Caretaker and Anise the Housekeeper were very accommodating.
Our stay at Le Mas des Sables was really fantastic. This is our fourth year using Luxury Retreats and staying here for 12 days was perfect. Philipe is a great addition. His charm is infectious and we really appreciated his attention to detail. The home feels like you own your own luxury resort and the views are the absolute best on the island. The only suggestions I would have would be for better/faster WiFi since we couldn't even Skype home to visit with our kids.
This villa is amazing. My fiance and I have stayed at many villas throughout the Caribbean, and we both agree that this one took 1st place. It is impeccably maintained, in pristine condition, and in an amazing location. I can understand why there are so many repeat customers that return here multiple times. Phillipe, the caretaker, lives on site and is there for any and all needs. At first, I was a bit reluctant to have someone else on site as we really like our privacy, but Phillipe has perfected the art of being available without being constantly present. It was nice to know if we needed something we could just pop in to their apartment (like matches, we can't speak French and didn't realize they were clearly marked in a tin in plain sight, LOL). We loved the fact that the Villa is double gated- one main one for the road, and one at the villa itself.. It allowed a sense of security which is unusual in the Caribbean, and was greatly appreciated!
The villa was exactly as advertised. The pictures give a very realistic sense of what the villa looks like (both inside and out) and of its view of the water. The staff was great and the bedrooms and main house were clean. I would recommend this house to friends and family in a heartbeat.
