  • Perfect Retreat

    "Fabulous St Martin rental. Just returned from 8 wonderful days. Location is perfect just a few minutes walk to beach and to shops and restaurants, but still very quiet and private. Nice to be able to have wine with a wonderful French meal and not have to worry about driving. Anna, the owner of the villa, greeted us on arrival and gave us a grand tour of Orient Bay. She is extremely helpful and very welcoming. The house is very comfortable with excellent AC, refreshing pool and everything we needed. We toured the entire island, but enjoyed Orient Bay best. Nicest beach with quiet places or full service restaurants. We kayaked out to Green Cay on several occasions for excellent snorkeling. Excellent windsurfing on Galion Bay (SXM Surf), but cash only and beware Westin time share scammers who flag down cars and give you scratch cards with winning numbers. To summarize, fantastic place to relax on St Martin. Can't recommend more highly and looking forward to repeat visit."

  • IT WAS EVERYTHING WE DREAMED ABOUT

    "This is definitely a luxury villa, which is what we were looking for on this trip. Yvan called us promptly and was constantly in touch via phone and email making sure we knew exactly what we needed to know to make our stay perfect!!! He provided telephone numbers of friends should we have a medical emergency, thankfully we did not. When we arrived following his perfect directions, Lionel was there to greet us and show us around, he was so helpful to us during our stay. The fridge was full of goodies and ohhhh in the morning those croissants were so fine. The view is cherished and many of the local people have never seen it as this is a gated community and we felt very privileged to have this opportunity. The walk down to the beach was good exercise and we loved Happy Bay and Friar's Bay was fun too!! There is a cooler and much more provided and a shower downstairs to get rid of the sand. My husband and I, our 2 son's and thier wives enjoyed the spacious home and there was alot of space for everyone to enjoy together or privately, Our favourite in the morning was having French Press coffee while sitting in the shaded area watching the boating activity on Happy Bay. Hummingbirds, butterflies flitted around us, too beautiful for words, most days Frannie the turtle would appear and make our day!! We used the BBQ and the kitchen was stocked with quality dishes and pots ect. We found the plastic wineglasses ect. for outside and loved having champagne in the Jacuzzi or the pool. Everything was spotless and the bedding was lovely, I highly recommend ths beautiful retreat. We had a rental car delivered to us and it was very nice to go and dine in Grand Case, see Orient Bay, shop at Bacchus and see Phillipsburg but most of all we loved staying at the villa. The kids did a snorkeling adventure out of Grand Case one morning but coud not wait to get back to the villa. We left there feeling rested and relaxed, it was the perfect vacation. Thank you Yvan and Carole and Lionel and Yvenotte"

  • Nothing like this Beauty

    "if you're thinking twice...DONT....trust me, you will not be disappointed. PROS: The view was absolutely breathtaking. The house was beautiful, everything was so unique. The master bedroom has a twin bed, which was very comfortable for our 12 year old. Each room has air conditioning. The market surprisingly had a lot of the foods and snacks that we love and it's about 5 minutes away. There are also some absolutely delicious restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner that are less than 5 minutes away, driving. Bruno and Corrine are such hard workers and were such a delight. My travel party included my 12 year old, husband, 2 of our best friends and my mom. It was just perfect. Bring your own snorkel gear as there is a ladder that leads to the sea and there is plenty to see. You will catch cruise ships coming and going. At night, the stars look amazing. Lizards and Iguanas for your viewing pleasure throughout the property. CONS: Mosquitoes were quite prevalent. We spent a lot of money purchasing mosquito repellent but I guess the mosquitoes loved me. I was bit at least 40 times. Thankfully, my daughter didn't get bit, probably because she stayed in the pool. My husband only got bit a few times. SUMMARY: All in all, I would stay here again, no question. La Calanthe is very Tranquil, peaceful, clean and absolutely stunning. I recommend a rental car. We've traveled to many places and often do not rent cars and rely on cabs, however, if we had taken a cab everywhere, we would have spent a ridiculous amount of money. Seriously, if you don't rent a car, you should probably plan on staying in your home or resort. The directions to get around are very easy, Surprisingly. Very Private! I can't wait to go back."
