  • Gorgeous beach, large pool, great place

    "Very nice place with a large enjoyable two-section pool and great view of a gorgeous beach right from your room or deck. The town is about a ten minute walk up the beach, so if you're looking to be in the middle of things this is not it. But if you want to be away from the hubbub or just don't mind walking or driving when you'd like to go to a bar or do watersports, it's perfect. Swimming conditions were great. The beach has quite a bit of seaweed on it at this location since it's not raked by the beachfront bars up the beach. If you walk a couple of minutes up the beach you can get to a part that's taken care of. Kitchen is nice but lacks any real counter space or cutting board. We somehow were not provided with toilet paper, but we just picked some up when getting groceries. Other convenient amenities like beach chairs, towels and an umbrella were provided. There are tennis courts, but it seemed like bringing your own racket and balls might be required. In any case it was way too hot for that until it was dark, though morning play might be a fun possibility. You'll need to do a bit of hilly walking to get from the parking areas to the rental. This didn't bother us. Overall this location was a tremendous value and highly enjoyable."

  • Beautiful setting/great property.

    "We benefitted from previous reviews and for the most part everything that was said was spot on. First a few negatives; parking is very tight, pool deck had screws that were raised (I was told they would be taken care of, as well as the grille which hadn't been cleaned in some time) and the gate to the beach wasn't always working, the entry to the ocean in front of the condo is rocky--but 100 yards down is perfect, the journey to get to the condo saw the higher end beach side and the mostly run down opposite side of the street--some chickens and dogs, but never bothered us. Now for the rest of it nothing but positive!! Gorgeous views from both levels. All sorts of boats parked in front and very few jet skis zipping by. The beach is pristine. We were there over Easter and never felt crowded. In fact, the mile long stretch rarely had more than 20 or 30 people in the water at the same time. Water is crystal clear--snorkeling is okay. Pool was also nearly unoccupied--we often had it to ourselves and at 5 feet deep was great from our 8 and 11 year old. Sunsets came directly to the outside patio attached to the condo. Gorgeous! The unit is very well maintained and has everything you need to cook in. Second floor master with the balcony is stunning. The four of us spent many a night sitting out the oversized couch and enjoying the breeze and the night view of the area. We arrived and had the tour given by Gordon--very helpful. We also had 4 cold beers and 4 cold sodas waiting in the fridge for us!! While it is only a short hop from the airport and a 10 minute walk gets you to some good restaurants and a little grocery store, we had a car and were happy to have it. Simpson Bay Beach is great--we also went to the far more busy Orient Beach and found it touristy, but nice. If you want to relax with great views, ocean and beach--you don't have to move an inch it is all there!! Atlantic Bakery (walkable), Beruit restaurant (walkable) and Palms (walkable) were among our favorite spots. I'm sure the issues I mentioned above will be dealt with--so I would recommend this property without reservation."

  • Paradise

    "This home is beautiful and the view spectacular. My husband and I and our 4 girls, ages 4, 7, 13, and 15 stayed for 10 days and all had the best time. It is in Cul du Sac, a very tranquil part of St. Martin, very close to Orient Beach and Grand Case. The owner provides 3 kayaks that we enjoyed daily, heading over to Pinel Island. The beach there is spectacular with 2 delicious restaurants and excellent lounge chair service. Villa Pinel is beautifully decorated with super comfortable beds. The owner, Veronique, offered us wonderful recommendations during our stay and was at our beck and call. There is a neighborhood grocery store having everything we needed and next door to that, Ponch Villa, a quaint and delicious mexican restaurant. There isn't a working TV in the villa which allowed us to disconnect and just enjoy each other. In the evenings, we played games and listened to music. The villa has the kitchen and living room open to the outdoors , with only air conditioning in the 3 bedrooms and separate in-laws suite. So, if you are looking for air conditioning and TV, this is not the villa for you. My only negative about the trip were the mosquitos. We had to keep ourselves coated in OFF the whole time and still got bitten, especially the 4 and 7 year old. With that said, we plan to return to Villa Pinel next year. I would highly recommend this villa."
