  • 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."

  • Great Week for 3 Couples!

    "Villa Santa Clara is a truly wonderful and beautiful home. It's location, in a very exclusive area of the island, is perfect for seeing the entire island. The 3 bedrooms are beautiful with great bathrooms featuring lovely rain showers. The pool and patio are spacious and comfortable. We especially liked the shaded seating area. The kitchen is well equipped, we had a great time making breakfast and drinks in the afternoon. We had a couple problems, but Greg the Manager was very quick to respond. We would highly recommend staying at Villa Santa Clara, you won't be disappointed."

  • Excellent Property

    "We are two couples who spent a week at the end of June at this great property. The condo is better than the pictures! It was easy to find from the airport. The area across the street from the condo are inhabited by very friendly locals. When we arrived, Gordon, the property manager, was there to greet us and gave us all kinds of great advice and showed us around the unit. A VOIP phone and a cell phone are provided for your use. The unit is well-equipped with fans and air-conditioning. The view out the back is fantastic. The beach is small in front of the unit, and you can snorkel around if you enter the water with some caution due to the large rocks. Just down the beach a little bit is a nice swimming area. There are a number of restaurants as you walk towards the airport that are nice to walk up to. Karakter Beach Bar was a nice treat and we had brunch and dinner there. Everything is within 40 minutes driving or less. All the previous reviews are spot on when it comes to the information. Everything is provided and more at Bella Mare. Be sure to take the advice from Gordon and Jill (who we worked with to book the condo). They had fantastic information and made the trip so much easier. Jill helped with booking a car which made it a lot easier for us. WHEN we come back, we will definitely stay at Bella Mare, again."

  • Fabulous Beach View

    "The condo was exactly as depicted in the photo. The studio was spacious, air conditioned with a large king sized bed, clean linen & sheets. The bathroom and shower was clean and well maintained with good water pressure. Bring your own washcloth if needed as those were not provided as the owner reminded us in his email. The exterior of the property is in need of paint and some maintenance but the view, location of Orient Beach and interior of the property was well worth it's lack of exterior appeal. There were plenty of supplies in the kitchen for preparing your own meals if you wanted however we chose to eat at the fantastic restaurants located minutes away in Grand Case. Grocery stores are located around the island but you will need a car. We dined at Bistrot Caraibes which is owned by Amaury and his brother and enjoyed an excellent meal there. We also had a great time dancing to live reggae music at Blue Martini after dinner one night! We enjoyed having coffee and croissants on our balcony every morning listening to the sound of the ocean and planning our day. In the evening we enjoyed a glass of wine outside before going to dinner. We also loved that we could walk down to the beach from the condo. Be aware that there are a lot of steep hills and steps on this property so if you have physical limitations it may be difficult to navigate. Amaury is friendly, gives great directions and is available if you should need his assistance. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and hope to return. We usually stay on the Dutch side but I can say I have fallen in love with the French side as well. You may want to consider renting a phone as our phones didn't work on the island and there is no phone in the unit. ."
