  • Excellent family vacation

    "Our "extended" family--our 3 kids and 2 of their friends--spent a fabulous week at Villa Pom. We wanted to be close enough to a variety of activities, while not feeling boxed in by a dense resort. Maly was very helpful getting us off to a good start, and I texted her throughout the week for tips and recommendations. The beach out side the house is not really a lounging beach, though the pool is a great future. We took full advantage of the kayaks to get a bit of a workout on our way to Pinel Island, before plopping into a chaise to lounge away the afternoon with cold drinks and great food. The hammock was always occupied--the kids always got to it before I could. Easy access to Orient Beach and Grand Case. Lots of water sports. We were there in low season, so some places were closed. That said, we never had to wait for anything. Great restaurants in Grand Case, though they seem to collude on price!! Other than the barbecue joints, all menus were in the same range, so we ended up spending more than intended to feed our crew of 7. The house, itself, was well appointed, and the beds (at least the one in the master) was among the most comfortable beds in which I've ever slept. My wife and I would readily return, either with the kids or with a few other couples."

  • Property is as lovely as the pictures!

    "Spacious living/dining area. Kitchen had all amenities (2 refrigerators, dishwasher, stacks of dinnerware, et al) Ample parking. Convenient location. Gated community. Stunning view while you're enjoying the ocean view or dining outside next to the pool. Definitely a home one would want to repeatedly return to. (Thanks to Philippe for ensuring our stay was perfect!)"

  • Paradise

    "This home is beautiful and the view spectacular. My husband and I and our 4 girls, ages 4, 7, 13, and 15 stayed for 10 days and all had the best time. It is in Cul du Sac, a very tranquil part of St. Martin, very close to Orient Beach and Grand Case. The owner provides 3 kayaks that we enjoyed daily, heading over to Pinel Island. The beach there is spectacular with 2 delicious restaurants and excellent lounge chair service. Villa Pinel is beautifully decorated with super comfortable beds. The owner, Veronique, offered us wonderful recommendations during our stay and was at our beck and call. There is a neighborhood grocery store having everything we needed and next door to that, Ponch Villa, a quaint and delicious mexican restaurant. There isn't a working TV in the villa which allowed us to disconnect and just enjoy each other. In the evenings, we played games and listened to music. The villa has the kitchen and living room open to the outdoors , with only air conditioning in the 3 bedrooms and separate in-laws suite. So, if you are looking for air conditioning and TV, this is not the villa for you. My only negative about the trip were the mosquitos. We had to keep ourselves coated in OFF the whole time and still got bitten, especially the 4 and 7 year old. With that said, we plan to return to Villa Pinel next year. I would highly recommend this villa."

  • Unique villa with exceptional views and great location

    "We loved our stay at Villa Karibuni on our recent vacation with our 2 small children (aged 4 and 6). The view is incredible and we especially enjoyed our time lounging on the deck in the mornings or afternoon/evenings and enjoying the pool and the view. Another highlight was utilizing the kayaks and taking them to Pinel Island for the day. It was windy while we were there so the kayaking was a fun challenge to Pinel but it was effortless coming back! The property is waterfront - just a few steps off the deck and you can be in the kayak heading to the nearby sand bar (amazing for photos) or Pinel. When we are in the Carribbean we enjoy exploring different beaches and areas but you could happily go to Pinel each day. Pinel island has lizards and hermit crabs in a certain area away from the beach that the kids discovered and this made Pinel especially fun for them. The water there is very calm too. The beaches we loved other than Pinel were Anse Marcel and Happy Bay a short walk from Friars Bay. We had considered staying in various hotels and were SO glad we chose this villa because we spent our days out and about exploring and when we came home we didn't feel we needed to go out again (unlike being in a hotel room). Since we have small children it was great to hang by the pool sipping cocktails and use the charcoal grill to prepare dinner with the delicious French ingredients available locally. The local village does have some great restaurants which we enjoyed a few nights too. A few small items were missing from the house but Manon was very responsive and made sure we had all we needed. She also can book reservations or excursions and even babysitters. The house was very clean and although not brand new it was nicely and simply appointed. The air conditioning worked just fine for us in the bedrooms and the rest of the house didn't need it because of the ocean breeze plus there is a huge fan. The whole villa has black out shutters so we all slept in! Manon also kindly provided us with snorkeling equipment and kids sand toys which was so nice. The pool has an alarm on it should you wish to use it which is great if you have small kids. I recommend you stay here - we will be going back!"
