  • 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!"

  • Experience of a lifetime...cannot wait to come back!

    "We spent a wonderful family time with our 3 teens agers at Villa Pom. A wonderful setting in front of Pinel Island. A house with all the amenities you can think of with beautifully decorated bedrooms, a superb kitchen, a great covered deck that we enjoyed tremendously at sunset around a nice aperitif. And a pool with pool deck that I enjoyed fully, doing yoga practice at the sound of waves and the feel of the breeze. We went to Pinel Island and enjoyed the Karibuni restaurant, its slow pace, great food and perfect location. We used the canoe to go there and we paddled too. We went to Orient Bay with great beach activities, perfect turquoise waters, fun waves. Quick access from Cul de Sac like it was also easy to go to Grand Case and its shopping area. Finally, we celebrated a 50th birthday at a great restaurant, Sol Y Luna, very close to Villa Pom. We came back feeling rejuvenated from a vacation in the perfect setting for our family. We will come back with friends as the house can easily accommodate another group. All in a safe gated community."

  • 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."
