  • Beautiful, large villa, few issues

    "When we arrived at the villa, it was stunning even in the dark! Since we rented the entire villa for ourselves, it was huge! Pauline was amazing! Very on call whenever we needed her, and we did, I'll explain later. If you want seclusion with an amazing view, this house is for you! It made us not want to go anywhere because it had everything! However, there were some things that we had issues with that people should be aware of. But even with these issues, I feel that we would stay here again since we go to SXM 1-2 times a year. We haven't found one villa on the island that is 100%, but this comes pretty close! 1. Air conditioning in one bedroom didn't work. Since we rented the whole house, we expected everything to work. 2. The two front bathrooms had sewer issues. And it only happened when it rained. It smelled the whole house like a sewer! Pauline told us how to fix the problem. I feel that this should be addressed when arriving or in the book and not have to wait for an hour for her to respond with the solution. And it happened multiple times, so that was frustrating. 3. I feel the gardener didn't need to be by your particular bedroom so early in the morning. On vacation, you want to be able to sleep late, and not get woken up by 7:00. 4. The cleaning service was great, but took some of our beach towels and never replaced them. The same with the bath towels and washcloths. I feel that if you're staying there for two weeks, everything should be there at your disposal until you leave."

  • Couldn't Have Chosen a Better Place

    "We rented this villa for our family of 4, including our teen son and daughter, This was our first visit to St. Maarten, so we were nervous about every decision we made. Many times during our 10 day stay, we talked about how lucky we were to have picked the right place in the right location. Bruno and Patricia were absolutely lovely and very responsive, making themselves available to answer any questions. They met us when we arrived and the place was immaculate and just as beautiful as the pictures. It was very hot weather while we were there, but if the ceiling fan circulating the air wasn't enough to cool us (which it usually was), there were air conditioners in every room, including the living room. There was a nice washing machine and a clothesline in the backyard as well as a fold-away rack, so laundry was easy. The kitchen was well-equipped, including a few spices. Wi-fi worked well and we watched Netflix more late evenings than I'd like to admit. There was also a safe, where we stashed our passports and any cash or credit cards we didn't need. We spent quite a bit of time around the lovely salt water pool (so much better than chlorine), which they cleaned once during our stay, although it didn't really need it. It was even more beautiful at night! Orient Beach was a short walk away - maybe 5-10 minutes - so it was nice to come and go individually if we weren't all in the mood to be at the beach or to drive elsewhere. And there was a small grocery store along the way, where they were always nice, despite how pitiful our attempts at French were. (We became addicted to the fresh baguettes available there every day.) Looking at the pictures again, I'm reminded that after 10 days on the island, this relaxing villa was the hardest thing to leave behind!"

  • Lovely stay at orient beach

    "We just recently returned from a lovely stay at Casa Azul. We have rented this villa several times with friends and also other families, and this past trip, two families with four young children. Veronique has always been very responsive and helpful, and this time she left a basket of beach and pool toys, and supplied two cribs and two high chairs for us. She also helped us find an English speaking babysitter so we could enjoy two nights out to dinner away from the kids. The village is very convenient to shop and get croissants and baguettes. We always have a lovely time and can't wait to come back!!"

  • 5 Star location but needs a little TLC

    "We've stayed at many places in Orient and had a great time in Villa Comtese. Comtese is located 3 minutes away from the Bikini beach entrance to the beach which is great and even closer to the shops in Orient village. We arrived and the people before us had left late so the villa was not quite ready yet so we had to wait a bit for them to finish cleaning it. It's just as pictured on the website. Our biggest issues where the internet was as slow as dial-up and you have one cable channel in english (CNN). If you plan on renting to people in the states you should at least try to get some american channels. In addition, we had burnt out light bulbs, broken toilet paper holders, loose towel holders and a toilet that didn't always want to flush. We did enjoy our friendly cat that greeted us every morning and walking to get croissants every morning."
