The house was perfect. Tucked away with a perfect view. It was everything we wanted and more!
Perfectly located for food and the view was perfect. Great for sunbathing and the pool was refreshing. We brought in a masseuse and did a couples massage on the deck. It was perfect.
Great view, tastefully decorated, fully equipped
We loved being in a neighborhood, yet a few minutes drive to Grand Case & it terrific restaurants ( Cottage, Villa, Spiga. President, and especially Rainbow with the water view). Hope Market & L’Express Boulangerie are even closer. Steep access road & driveway, parking a bit tight. Rooms are spacious & the outdoor area, including pool, are great.
Medical Conference in St. Maarten x 1 week
Overall, we loved this VRBO villa. I was in St. Maarten for a Medical Conference for 1 week. I received an itinerary for the villa ahead of time along with 2 maps, and directions. I was traveling with my sister, our husbands, my nephew, niece, and her boyfriend. We encountered a couple issues, beginning with the directions. They were confusing. If you go to this VRBO, when you leave the airport and if you get to the beach road, you've gone the wrong way. When you leave the airport (SXM), go RIGHT. I highly recommend printing or obtaining a road map BEFORE you go to St. Maarten, the island DOES NOT HAVE GPS. We thought it was an option with our rental cars, it is NOT. Second issue: there were tiny ants/bugs in the kitchen. No matter how much we cleaned crumbs, food, and dirty dishes, they were present on counters, floors, and cupboards. The kitchen was clean and well-stocked, but we had ants the entire time. Third issue: 2 days we went without water. Julie, our hostess, was apologetic and sent bottled water and a hand-pump shower to help accommodate. There was construction down the road and we think that is why water was out, and it was several houses, not just ours. However, this happened 2 days prior to departure and the day of departure. This hindered our ability to do our laundry and shower prior to a long day of travel. In any case, despite these 3 main issues, we absolutely loved the villa. We had to be sure to park along the wall with the villa to not hinder our neighbor from parking, and the cats next door would walk into the villa if we didn't keep watch, but the pool was refreshing and cool in the evenings, all appliances worked, beds were comfortable, plenty of space and dining areas for any occasion, grill worked nicely, it was easy to clean (sweeping out sand, dishwasher for dishes, etc.) and everyone was exceedingly comfortable. Though the villa was a little difficult to find, it was located in a gated community and had an amazing view of the ocean, second to none. We felt secure and safe, neighbors were polite and quiet, and I would definitely stay here again in the future. There were 3 showers (no bath tubs) and 2 toilets (master bedroom had its own toilet, other 2 bedrooms shared a toilet, but had separate showers). I think Julie and Fred (he met us at the villa to answer any questions and to welcome us) did a great job in making this trip wonderful, I thank them both, we will definitely be back!
We had a beautiful stay at Cul-de-sac.
Perfect for 2 couples. The home had everything we required for cooking at home however close to great restaurants. Never tired of the amazing views.
Living like a Local!
We loved this house. We stayed for 2 weeks in low season. The house is in a gated community and is very secure. It is located directly in between Grand Case and Orient Bay so both places are only a 10 minute drive away. There's also a grocery store (Price Leader) and restaurants within 5 mins away. Both the house and the pool were cleaned twice while we were there. Just FYI if you're allergic to cats - The neighbor next door has 7 cats and they became our porch cats while we were there. We ended up loving them and looking forward to their visits.
We really loved the private pool. It has disco lights inside the pool! We loved watching the sunset while taking a swim. The management company was very good and answered our calls immediately. We left 2 days before the hurricane hit so I pray that this area is still as beautiful as it was when we were there.
We had a wonderful time staying at Villa Caraibes. The house is as presented in the pictures. Updated and nice to have the pool with great views. Staying in Cul de Sac was convenient for beaches such as Anse de Marcel, Orient Bay, and Ile de Pinel. Good restaurants in Orient Bay and Grand Case closeby.
