  • 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!"

  • 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"

  • 11 Days in St. Martin

    "My wife and I along with three other couples stayed at Villa Coccinelle in early February 2016. The pictures of the villa are true to life. This property is more laid back and island style house. Villa Azul just above this property has a more modern feel but less outdoor space. Bruno was a pleasure to work with. Each room was very clean and we had everything we needed. Only complaints were the mattresses are a little on the hard side and the outdoor shower has been turned of by owner. The outdoor space and view are the best part of this villa. There is a large dining table and a separate sitting area. Almost all of our time on the property was spent around the pool and outside sitting areas. Had a great BBQ using the charcoal grill. You must visit Pinel Island using the kayaks. Would definitely go back."

  • Property is as lovely as the pictures!

    "Spacious living/dining area. Kitchen had all amenities (2 refrigerators, dishwasher, stacks of dinnerware, et al) Ample parking. Convenient location. Gated community. Stunning view while you're enjoying the ocean view or dining outside next to the pool. Definitely a home one would want to repeatedly return to. (Thanks to Philippe for ensuring our stay was perfect!)"
