  • 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!"

  • Beautiful home in a great location. You will love the pool and view.

    "We enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend the home and come back again. The communication in advance was so helpful. We had never been to St. Marteen before and had all of our questions answered promptly and thoroughly. We were met at the rental car pick up and escorted to the grocery store and then the house which was very helpful. Any minor issues that arose resulted in someone coming to the house to respond immediately. The pool and outdoor area is so lovely that we found it difficult to leave some days. The walk to the Westin only took minutes and was much easier than described. The beach is gorgeous, although we preferred our beautiful pool that was well stocked with pool items and the like. We went to the very nearby Oyster Pond area for great dining almost daily. Everything on the island is so close that we found the quiet and beautiful location to be perfect. But our rental Jeep was a must I would say. There were a couple of minor items on our list. The ice maker in the wet bar and second fridge were both removed. Only one ice maker in the heat made buying ice necessary. The kitchen has a beautiful and huge granite topped island. But it is counter height but has too high bar height stools (that are also lovely). You sit so high you cannot use it for dining! There are also a few items around the property that should be picked up bht nothing that interferes with a 5 star rating. For example, a discarded welcome mat sitting in the garden outside the downstairs suite. Minor items that the managers should be tidying outside. But the housekeeping inside was impeccable and the housekeeper a jewel. We loved the house and out stay. We have already recommended it to others and will look at it again."

  • Second stay and planning a third...

    "This week-long stay found us back and enjoying ourselves from the moment we got off the plane having gotten our bearings from our first trip. Taking Judith's advice on car rental allowed us to enjoy Maho, Marigot and Phillipsburg with ease. Fave beach? Mullet Bay Beach, barely 15 minutes from the villa by car. Some resorts feel like they are just that. But here, we felt as in a home away from home and right on the sea! Forget resorts where maybe you can glimpse the sea; here the home is literally on the edge of the sea and from the verandah you can see, hear and smell the surf crashing on the shore. The pool area has been nicely upgraded and is lit for a night swim. This community/enclave consists of about 23 homes and has an exclusive feeling to it without being over-the-top. Having been there twice, I can assure you that the cleanliness and condition of the home is consistent and reliable. This means much to those of us who have had our hearts sink when opening the door to less-than-pleasing conditions. That just won't happen here. Simple, tidy, clean with enough touches that let you know the owner has you and your enjoyment in mind. My Significant Other, who was also here with me the first trip and who has more experience than I holidaying says this home is her fave of all places she has stayed in the Caribbean...and that is saying a lot! Sylma is the local lady to call who, aside from keeping the property well-managed and clean, can assist with other issues when you may be unsure of who to call. While the airport is close enough to observe planes coming in, there is no noise issue. Indeed, it really is a quiet and relaxing home. Being just off the road, it is very low in both vehicle and foot traffic.And this enhances the privacy and calm aspect as you can imagine. I should also add that it has a safe feeling to it, always a concern when trying out a new place to relax. In closing, I am not surprised this home is popular and books well. This villa deserves it!"

  • Beautiful, large villa, few issues

    "When we arrived at the villa, it was stunning even in the dark! Since we rented the entire villa for ourselves, it was huge! Pauline was amazing! Very on call whenever we needed her, and we did, I'll explain later. If you want seclusion with an amazing view, this house is for you! It made us not want to go anywhere because it had everything! However, there were some things that we had issues with that people should be aware of. But even with these issues, I feel that we would stay here again since we go to SXM 1-2 times a year. We haven't found one villa on the island that is 100%, but this comes pretty close! 1. Air conditioning in one bedroom didn't work. Since we rented the whole house, we expected everything to work. 2. The two front bathrooms had sewer issues. And it only happened when it rained. It smelled the whole house like a sewer! Pauline told us how to fix the problem. I feel that this should be addressed when arriving or in the book and not have to wait for an hour for her to respond with the solution. And it happened multiple times, so that was frustrating. 3. I feel the gardener didn't need to be by your particular bedroom so early in the morning. On vacation, you want to be able to sleep late, and not get woken up by 7:00. 4. The cleaning service was great, but took some of our beach towels and never replaced them. The same with the bath towels and washcloths. I feel that if you're staying there for two weeks, everything should be there at your disposal until you leave."
