Overview

About the property

New Design, Same View, Same Comfort With 4 Bed/Bath And 1 Studio

This magnificent new villa named Giselle is perched on a gentle hillside overlooking Plum Bay and the Anguillan Channel where the large cruise ships float by. Built in 2014, Giselle is located in Terres Basses, one of the few gated communities in the Caribbean featuring two-and-a half acre home sites. The community is gated as is the villa property.

This superb, newly-constructed private home has a 180º view of the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean and it is only 6 minutes walk to Plum Bay beach. Giselle has four equally-sized master bedrooms with walk-in closets and bathrooms en suite; there is no disputing as to who gets the biggest or smallest bedroom or the one with the best view. All four of these king-sized bedrooms as well as the kitchen, dining room and lounge have a spectacular 180-degree view of the sea. There is also a fifth bedrooms. The bedrooms are air-conditioned or you can enjoy the breeze. It seems there is always just enough breeze up here—one of the enormous advantages of being on a rolling hillside. Each bedroom/bath suite is like a separate cottage connected with a common roof and veranda opening into the pool and the terrace. As you enter the villa your view is across a wonderfully furnished lounge, through a 30-foot open doorway, across a sheltered veranda, a hot tub and a heated swimming pool. That’s right, heated, one of the very few on the island; you might need it if the temperature at night dips into the low 70’s. And the pool is large enough for some exercise if you are so inclined, or simply lounge by it and drink in the view.

The kitchen opens up to the outside. The dining room is outside under roof. There is plenty of space so everyone can go off for his or her own peace and quiet or gather in one of the lounges or at the kitchen counter for conversation.

The spacious indoor and outdoor living areas offer ideal opportunities for relaxing and entertaining, complete with the gourmet kitchen and covered outdoor dining area with gas BBQ. You can go to a different restaurant every night for a year and never repeat yourself, or on some nights you can hire a chef to prepare meals. There is a caterer nearby who delivers great meals prepared fresh daily as well (ask us for a referral).

Connection to reality is maintained with a WiFi internet connection and a US telephone line. There is a local phone line.

About Oversea

We'd like to help answer your question and tell you about our island.

Oversea purchased this villa in 2014

Why Oversea chose St Maarten

The benefit of villas over hotels is the space they provide over and above your bedroom. However luxurious a hotel lobby may be, it will still be thronged with strangers. It is perfectly possible for a group of friends, family or acquaintances to live virtually separate existences or to enjoy times together; you set the program. This villa easily sleeps 10 in considerable style, so a group of friends or an extended family can rent it even in high season, yet the cost to any of the individual couples would be about what they would pay for a week in a condo in Florida.

Villa Giselle - Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Giselle at the end of January 2017 and the pictures don’t do it justice. Absolutely stunning furnishings comfort you in the well-maintained and gated community of Terres Basses. Our stay was very tranquil with very minimal traffic and lots of silence to enjoy the spectacular views of Plum Bay, sailboats and Anguilla. The four suites are very well appointed, each with its own name, color theme, and individual air conditioning unit. This villa has one of the only heated pools on the island and has a whirlpool that flows into the infinity edged pool. The outdoor space is always very important to us on our trips to the Caribbean and Giselle offers multiple areas to relax, whether you want shade or sun. The kitchen area was great, clean, and left us with everything we needed to cook most of our own meals. We stayed for 10 days and only left the villa three times, one of which was a golf outing to Anguilla – also a wonderful and very relaxed island in paradise. All of the locals on both islands are as friendly as it gets and we really enjoyed everyone we talked with as they went out of their way to make our experience the best it could be. The Wi-Fi in the home worked well and most importantly the pool had no issues with heating.

The caretaking staff was exceptional! Lilly took great care of us on a daily basis for whatever needs came up and even delivered authentic French croissants and baguettes a couple mornings that were the best we’ve ever had! Greg, the main property manager was, along with Lilly, made themselves available to our every need and were so wonderful to work with. They offer the ability to get you what you need – whether that be massages (which were awesome, and fairly priced), chefs or provisioning. The villa has daily cleaning included, although we had them come in only a couple times. Again, a real nicely maintained and cared for Villa that we fell in love with. Plum Bay beach really is less than a 10 minute stroll down the private road and offered uncrowded waves and areas that were sandy enough to swim in. We chose not to rent a car during our stay and were happy with that decision. The roads are fairly narrow and we found a very friendly and accommodating taxi driver that took us everywhere we wanted to go (thank you Jose).

We have traveled to quite a number of islands in the Caribbean and are quite particular, but this is our favorite villa thus far! Overall, you don’t get better than this!

Villa Giselle is Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We just left Villa Giselle and Saint Martin and easily had our best vacation ever. We were two couples and six teenagers and the house was spectacular and perfect. If you think the pictures are nice then you are in for a big surprise because they don't do the villa justice. We were blown away at how beautiful, spacious and tasteful it was. Greg, Nelly and their assistant, Lilly were first class and provided everything we needed. The villa has four identical bedrooms on the main floor around the pool, and I do mean identical. They are exactly alike, which meant no master suite and everyone was equal. Our two older boys shared the 5th bedroom/studio apartment which had two king beds and a separate kitchen. This came in handy for storing food in the 2nd refrigerator. The villa is unusual in that it has both American and European electrical outlets in the kitchen and bedrooms, which is a great touch. We brought several converters, but didn't use many of them. The pool and hot tub are great and the control panel is easy to use. Our kids loved the family of iguanas that live in the stone wall. There is a beach at the bottom of the street that is spectacular for sunsets and we were there every night. The security in Terre Basses is top notch and the boys at the gate were very friendly and helpful. Also, there is a brand new french bakery on the road at Nettle Bay that is amazing. We spent all our time on the French side and loved every minute of it. Can't wait to go back.

Gorgeous House!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing trip! We were 10 people 2 couples and 6 kids. It was our first time in St Martin and we chose the right place to stay! The House is outstanding..... from the decorating to the property and was CLEAN! and it had everything you need in it! The Bedrooms were gorgeous with new bathrooms and great closets. No one had to fight over who was staying in the best room, because they are all equally beautiful. The Pool is great and we ended each day in the hot tub. Greg and Lilly were the perfect people to help you make your vacation perfect. We had jeeps waiting for us at the airport! We drove our self to the airport on the way home and just left the jeeps there! It was so convienaint. We ate at awesome restaurants....mostly on the dutch side. Greg recommended some great restaurants and a beautiful catamaran we took to Anguilla! We would recommend this house to anyone ! Greg even set us up with a chef that came over and made us a huge easter breakfast and a great dinner one night. Can't wait to go back!!!!

Villa Giselle

  • 5 of 5

Two couples and one 9 year old. We had a fantastic trip! The Villa was better than expected and very private. Greg, Lilly, and Michael were all very helpful and went out of their way for any of our needs. Walking distance to a great beach. Gated community and gated house we felt very safe, had no problems the entire trip. Heated pool and hot tub!
