  • Fifth visit to La Mirella

    "Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: There are many things that make La Mirella the villa we choose to return to. The 180 degree view can not be beat. The housekeeper pays close attention to detail so the villa is always clean and fresh. The staff from the rental agency and the house manager ensure everything is working properly and respond quickly if something goes wrong. Even the standby generator responds quickly - when the electricity supply is disrupted. This year, we hired a taxi from the airport ($50US), rented a car that was delivered to the villa before we arrived and ordered groceries that were also at the villa before we arrived. The pool is large, a comfortable temperature and sheltered from the wind by the villa. The entire villa is very private."

  • Paradise found!

    "What a beautiful well kept villa! Very clean and tastefully decorated, and it really had everything you would need, in your home away from home! It was hard to decide if we should explore the island or stay and enjoy the magnificent view by the pool! We did manage do to a little of both! Everything was as promised and Deborah is wonderful to work with, She was always quick to respond from the beginning of the rental process to the end. The area is very nice so much beauty just driving around Oyster Pond. We loved feeding Iguanas at the bottom of the hill by the Westin, they live near a little pond there. The restaurants were all wonderful in that area with our favorite being Busby's by day & Daniels By the Sea in the evening. This is the same place but they change into a fantastic Italian restaurant in the evening. The view is gorgeous by day and evening and they have a wonderful breakfast! Mama's Pizza was a fun place to dine as well & Dinghy Dock! We watched the Cleveland Cavs win the 2016 NBA title at the Dinghy Dock, so if you want to watch a favorite sporting event that is the place! They have a make your own drink special and you really do make your own! We did visit Isle of Pinel and Anguilla, both were fantastic and we would recommend both! So much to do.. We wished we had more time. All of the beaches are wonderful but our favorites were Cupecoy and Nettle Bay. Mullet Bay is wonderful calm water to swim in as well. You have to take an afternoon to have drinks and lunch at the Sunset Bar and watch the planes come in at Maho Beach! If you are wondering where to stay, do not hesitate to stay at Villa Caribella! Everything was as promised and more and the Island of St. Maarten is fantastic! I will say the French side was incredible, St Martin!! Check out Rancho Del Sol, cozy, outdoor seating with a view and a wonderful menu & drinks! We loved our vacation and Villa Caribella!"

  • 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!"
