La Villa Méditerranée, Vos Vacances de Rêves aux Caraibes.

Sunset

We had our fair share of great moments in this villa. The villa is spacious, secure and fresh as it is located on a hilltop overlooking the striking Orient beach. The house is tropically decorated and refreshing. Huge rooms and balcony. Plenty of attractions and activities to indulge in. We cannot thank you enough to the pleasant owner and staff who helped us big time.

We loved our week at Villa Mediterranee. The house sits up on a hill, the views are breathtaking and the property itself is quite lovely (especially the outdoor patios). It was the perfect vacation for me, my husband and our 3 adult daughters and their husbands. We spent our days down at the beach (only a 5 minute walk) and would return late afternoons to lounge around the pool and enjoy cocktails. It was wonderful to be able to “eat in” some nights – the kitchen is very traveler friendly and they even have a grill! All of the rooms and bathrooms are very spacious. Our week at Villa Mediterranee was probably the easiest and most relaxing family vacation we have had – thank you for sharing your beautiful property!

We just got back from our trip to St. Martin and all I can think about is planning our next trip back! My family has vacationed in St. Martin for several years, however, this was our first time staying at Villa Mediterranne. We loved it!!! It was absolutely perfect for our two families. The children (ages 3 and 5) loved the pool area and we all felt very safe at night. The villa has a gate and security system. The view from the villa of Orient Beach is breathtaking! All of the four rooms are very spacious and have everything you could want/need. The kitchen is also very spacious and looked to be updated recently. The hot tub was not working the week we were there, which was fine. The property manager and staff all were very nice and helpful. The owner, Alain, was also very helpful, sending us places he recommends and things to do. Like I said, we travel often to St. Martin so we have our favorite places to go, especially traveling with young children. However, this time we ate at a couple of the places the owner, Alain, suggested and they were great! There is a little grocery store very close by that has a lot of things you may need, which we found very convenient. My husband and I have fallen in love with St. Martin and now we are enjoying building lifelong memories with our two girls. We love that we know the island pretty well and we love that you have the ability to take day trips over to PInel Island, Anguilla and St. Barts. This trip was amazing, from the Villa to the friendly people we encountered along the way. We cannot thank you enough for a great week!

Previous guest have already identified what a great place this is. Villa is (as the crow flies) about 3 blocks up from the beach and at the start of a hill, thus we have a great view down to the water and the three surrounding small islands just off shore. In reality we have to walk two blocks down the hill (paved road) West, then three blocks North to the beach. Our maid came every day except Sunday at around 10 am and immediately went about cleaning and changing bedding and towels. Excellent location based on a trade off of not being directly on the beach, but with a breath taking view. There was always a soothing breeze at this location. Quiet neighborhood. Very solid structure thus it was very quiet inside at night. Wireless Internet connection is very fast, but works faster if you bring along your own Ethernet cable. Lots of room for four couples. Big bedrooms with walk in showers. Excellent security system within our own large gated yard. Quick response from the villa manager on anything we had issues with. Very good maid service. WOW all bed linens and bath towels were changed every day. We always bring along a small 220-110-volt transformer to foreign countries, but we found this house has this large 20 pound 220-110 V transformer that nicely servicing our needs within outlets in just about every room. The house has an excellent air conditioning system with large modern individual units in every room. Any and all negative items were quickly corrected by the local manager, other issues were address directly by the owner back in the states. Only negative: the pool pump was Out Of Service, but the owner noted they are in the process of totally overhauling the pool system in the next few weeks. Great luxury for four old naturist couples (two retired and two still working) from Wisconsin spitting the overall cost of this very grand accommodation. The owner is very informative towards answering any of your questions.

Our stay at the Villa was outstanding. We were a group of 2 families and everyone, including the kids, fit comfortably in their bedrooms. We enjoyed all of the seating both inside and outside of the villa, the kitchen (super helpful when you have hungry kids), and the pool/hot tub. We stocked the kitchen early in the week (“Simply” grocery store is nearby) and many nights we would grill, play music, and have a pool party. Most of our days were spent at the glorious beach (La Playa rocked!) and we all enjoyed the water sports. Highlights of the trip included: Captain Alan’s snorkel tour (2 thumbs up), dinner in Grand Case, shopping in Marigot, a beautiful sunset cruise to celebrate a family member’s birthday, and fresh baguettes, cheese & wine every day. Alain was wonderful to work with, the maid was efficient and sweet, and we even had a white cat visit us every day that we named “Sunshine.” 2 small negatives: Magali was rather rude to us and the pool guys took our dive toys when they were cleaning it. But we are all madly in love with St Martin and can’t wait to return. Moreover, we will definitely rent the villa (which we lovingly called “the compound”) again because it exceeded all of our expectations! Thanks, Alain!

We just returned from our annual trip to St. Martin and absolutely loved staying at this location. The home is great for three couples and is very well located on the island. If I had any negatives it would be the satelite television should offer more stations for Americans – only 3 English stations. Other than that incredible views and very nice accomodations.
Underwoods – Tennessee, USA

My wife and I stayed at Villa Mediterranee for two weeks and our adult children joined us for part of the time. It was our 4th visit to Orient Beach and we throughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the Villa. The staff of Cab Caribe were very helpful and housekeeper was great. Walking to the beach and several of the Village restaurants was very convenient. The complimentary use of umbrellas and chairs at La Playa was a very nice benefit. There were only 3 english channels on the cable, CNN, ESPN and Disney. All in all a beautiful home with a stunning view of Orient Bay.
Pennsylvania, USA

This was our 3rd time staying at the Villa Méditerranée. We stayed one week every year for the last 3 years. This place is a paradise and I can only say that you have to come and experience for yourself. The villa is walking distance to Orient beach and to the shopping centers and restaurants of the Village d’Orient. Everything you need is right here. The pool is awesome and very private. The view form the patio and veranda is spectacular: you can see all three islands of Tintamarre, Pinel and St Barth at the same time. The bedrooms are terrific but however my favorite is the upstairs bedroom, from which you have a view on the pool and the green preserve of St Martin. My kids loved every minute. Many thanks to the villa manager and staff for being so gracious and making our stay so pleasant!
Candy – New York, USA

One of our best vacations. This was our first time to the island and thankfully we did not go wrong with the location. The villa is everything and more. Great views, great privacy and most of all good friends to enjoy it with. All 4 couples raved about how perfect the house was for their vacation. Staying in Orient Village is by far the best place on the island if you are looking to get away from high rise condos. The villa is close enough to the village to walk and we did so almost every night.
Mobile, AL

We acutally stayed here twice in 2010. Cannot recommend it enough! Fantastic location. Very well maintained. Has a great built in hot tub on the patio. Very private. Great maid service. Walking distance to orient beach. Fantastic view. Gated entry for security. You can’t go wrong.
Charles – Tulsa, OK

My family and I had a wonderful time in St. Martin this past October! I had been once before a few years ago and stayed in an average hotel on the Dutch side, but this time was truly exceptional. The villa has ample space for a family of five (or even more) and is in excellent condition, and with the very helpful maid, we didn’t have to lift a finger! The grill by the pool is also a great feature – we picked up fresh fish at the market in Marigot for a delicious lunch. Thank you very much Alain for your hospitality and helpfulness!
Joe – New York, NY

The villa was everything it is advertised to be. The pictures do not do it justice. The owner was a pleasure to work with. The location is fabulous as well. The best recommendation we can give is we are already planning a trip back and would never consider any other accommodations. We were a party of three couples and all of us thought the villa was marvelous.
Tulsa, OK

My friends, my wife and I stayed there for 10 days. We had an amazing time. The villa is overlooking Orient Bay and is as gorgeous as the views! You are walking distance from the beach were you will find everything you need. From kitesurfing to scuba diving or fantastic restaurants it’s all there!
Vincent – New York, USA

If you are going to St Martin and want to stay in Orient Village, look no further. This 4 bedroom villa is ideal for 4 couples and is exactly what you are looking for if you want space, views, location and style. All of the beds are kings and sleep really well… I had 7 greats nights of sleep while we were there and that’s hard to do (away from home). The floor plan is perfect and the views really are exactly like the pictures! The pool is large and well-kept with comfy lounge chairs to enjoy laying out in the sun or reading a book. The jacuzzi is not heated, but will give you a good “bubble massage”. The kitchen is very modern and has everything you need if you decide to eat some meals at home. There is also a grill that works great (and was perfect for grilling the mahi mahi that our guys caught on their fishing trip). This home is clean, cool (AC works well) and has great Mediterranean architecture and decor. It completes your island atmosphere!! The walk to the beach is 7-10 minutes. It is very easy (1 hill coming home) and the beach is right off of a postcard. Crystal clear water with mountains surrounding you. As part of the Villa Mediterranee deal, you will receive free chairs and umbrellas at La Playa, which is a beachfront resort that includes a bar and restaurant. This is a HUGE perk as renting chairs and umbrellas will cost $10/day anywhere else. While you enjoy your free umbrella and chair, a waiter from La Playa will serve you drinks and food. You never have to leave your chair… until you want to take a dip in the turquoise water! How amazing is that!? We just got home and I am already missing sitting on the veranda, reading my book and enjoying the view. I searched for 6 months to find the “perfect” island experience and I can honestly say that I wasn’t disappointed. Thanks Alain!!
Lori – Charlotte, NC

We had a fantastic time at the Villa Mediterranee! Just a two minute walk from Orient beach and a short ride to Grand Case, Marigot, and Phillipsburg, we couldn’t have asked for a better location. The view from the villa is also to die for! The house itself is very spacious and comfortable, with four large beds and four large bathrooms (huge walk-in showers!). Kitchen seemed very modern, though we ate out every night so I can’t comment there. The maid was also very nice and helpful, too. Finally, the renter was great with communication and gave us a well-appreciated list of suggested places to visit (Friar’s bay – highly recommended!). We will definitely stay here again!
James, Mary, Steve & Jess – Danbury, CT

We have been coming to St Martin every year since the 80s. We had a fabulous time at your house. The pool is a real delight. The view is spectacular. The villa is awesome, the best accommodation we have encountered in our travel to the island so far. Thank you for your hospitality.

We just returned from a two weeks’ holiday on St. Martin in the Villa Mediterranee. We’ve had such a wonderful time there! The villa is very comfortable, spacious and beautifully decorated. The garden is lovely, during the day when relaxing at the swimming-pool, but also at night with all the garden lights on. We’ve also enjoyed the verandah with the big table and the comfortable chairs. The villa certainly lived up to all the expectations the website suggested! The villa is also situated in a very attractive part of the island, Orient Beach is just a few minutes away and we found quite a few nice restaurants there. We also liked Gallion Beach which is also very close to the villa and is an ideal place for children. We’re already looking forward to return to the Villa!
Willem & Christine – The Netherlands

Life is a journey and our trip to St. Martin and this home made it more incredible! The beach scenery and flowers were fabulous! From the jewelry peddlers on the beach to the festival in Grand Case, we loved all of it. Our housekeeper Juanita was the best! Friendly, trustworthy, helpful. She is an asset to “our” villa! We’ll be back!
Steve & Sharon, Rhonda & Tom, Steve & Maragret, Jane & Harry – Kentucky, USA

St. Martin just gets better and better. This is our third stay and we really enjoyed the island and the house! It’s a beautiful house – the pool is heaven! Thank you for sharing your home with our family.
The Wallace Clan

This is our first trip to fabulous St. Martin. Lucky for us the weather made it a beautiful location to spend our honeymoon. Your home is beautiful! Thank you so much for your hospitality – there are so many welcoming touches here. Thank you!
Katie & Bryan

Your home is lovely. Thank you for sharing it with us and our friends. We will tell everyone in Dallas, TX and Washington, DC about your lovely and welcoming home. We look forward to returning some day soon. We visit St. Martin every 2-3 years since the early 80s. Your pool is really delightful. The best we have encountered in our travels.
Linda & David

We have looked forward to our stay ever since we toured this wonderful villa last year. It did not disappoint! A great place to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary. The location is spectacular – as are the views of the gardens. Juanita treats this home as if it were her own! She is truly a gem and you are most fortunate to have such a loyal and trustworthy person caring for the home. She is very special and rare! Looking forward to our next trip!
Joyce & Matt – Janesville, WI

Thank you for the best spring break we could have hoped for. Ten close friends, seniors at Georgetown with too little time before graduation, came to St. Maarten and made memories that will last a lifetime. From Davidou to scuba bays to Nigel to horseback riding, we will never forget spring break in St. Maarten 2008. Thanks Alain!

A beautiful villa! The view is outstanding – private yet easily accessible to Grand Case, Fryar’s Beach, Happy Bay…even Marigot. New discovery this trip…Sunset Cafe. A must! No better sunset watching and the food is fabulous! Lucia and Stephen were great and very helpful. Between the two couples this is our tenth trip to St. Martin. Always French side, always a villa. This ranks up with the best!
Ralph & Wendy – Hershey, PA

This was one of our FAVORITE vacations! We LOVED the house, the food and the relaxation. The house is absolutely gorgeous and is the best house we have stayed in! We wish we had stayed longer to do more things. From jet-skiing on the beach to sunset cruises we had a wonderful time and can’t wait to return! The weather couldn’t have been better. This was our first time at St. Martin and I’m sure we will b back soon! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! Merci!
Frank, Patty, Frank, Gina & Nick

La maison était extraordinaire. Les vous étaint superbes. Lucia est fantastique. Nous avons bien mangé. Nous avons mangé trop. Merci pour tout. Nous bien amusés. La belle plage est si près!
Dan & Jacqué, Tom & Terry, Dick & Nam – Fremont, OH

Vivent les vacances! We’ve spent an idyllic week here, soaking up the sun, lounging on the beach, walking in the sand, losing sense of time, so graciously hosted by Alan and Lama. On this island paradise the magic hat saw to all our earthly needs. Eating mega gambas and sardines at Friar’s Bay, drinking precious rum, Caribe, Red Stripe, indulging our every whim and fancy. Turkish coffee scented the morning air and Tommy’s daily expedition to the village brought fresh baguettes and croissants. Roulette and blackjack at the casino roused us briefly from our island dream and our boys revelled in their triumph. Now the time has come to say goodbye, each one of us renewed and refreshed and eager to return. Thank you Shikanis!
Sally, Tommy, William & Benjie

Walking out to the veranda and seeing Orient Bay for the first time from the villa was spectacular!! Our group of 8 could not have had a better experience on our week-long trip. The view, spaciousness, amenities, location…everything was amazing. We loved walking down to the beach (5 min), watching the sunrise and grabbing a quick swim before heading to Good Morning for croissants and lattes. Everything is convenient to the villa! The bedrooms were spacious and well appointed, and the bathrooms were fantastic. The kitchen was great for cooking and serving; we ate at the table for 8 outside and inside several times. We also used the outdoor grill once, worked just fine. The Jacuzzi tub does not get hot but does bubble. Our favorite gathering spot is overlooking the pool from the veranda in the four wooden side chairs around the square table. Many conversations were had there! The villa is a 10 minute drive to Grand Case, 15 to Marigot (and the grocery store U Spend) and 20 to the airport. Pro tip: turn off the water when you are done with the washer so it won’t drip :) Overall, best 7 days of our lives!!!
Leigh A

Loved the convenience of being walkable to restaurants and Bikini Beach, which had great bars and gorgeous blue water. The amenities, including the pool and hot tub were top notch and really made the trip. Great views of the water from the house. I highly recommend anyone visiting the Caribbean to stay at Villa Méditerranée!
Logan H

Villa Mediterranee was absolutely beautiful! The house sits on a hill with views that are absolutely gorgeous. The kitchen and bedrooms are VERY spacious along with multiple bathrooms throughout the house with walk in showers. The beach and restaurants are about a 5 minute walk from the villa, which makes this place even better!! The villa is in great condition and includes AC, Wi-Fi, and a fully equipped kitchen. I will definitely recommend this wonderful place to friends and family!
Kristin B

I had the luxury of staying at Villa Mediterranée earlier this month and wish I had never left! From the second the gates opened to the property I felt a slight wave of euphoria and knew right away that it was going to be an amazing trip. The gorgeous villa is located in such a convenient, safe & friendly area – I didn’t feel much of a need to explore the island much further . Just minutes from the beach, stores & shops, needless to boast about the picture-perfect views (especially from the upstairs balcony) – I highly recommend a stay at this property, and can’t wait to go back.
Frank B

My stay at Villa Méditerranée was absolutely incredible. The home is beautiful – with panoramic views of the ocean and surrounding mountains. Great for large groups, with multiple spaces for entertaining and relaxing. In very close proximity to the beach and a small chain of stores that have everything you need for your stay (walking distance!). Will definitely recommend to friends and family! Loved everything about the house and my trip!
Kelly M

What a wonderful villa. Absolutely Beautiful. The view exactly as depicted. Well equipped kitchen.
We had four couples celebrating various major life events. All the bedrooms are lovely with king beds and en suite bathrooms. The view is exactly as depicted. Very nice pool, area with ample seating for all, and a spa as well.
We were walking distance the the restaurant circle, a plus after a long day of beaching or shopping. The manager Philippe was excellent and readily available. Would definitely be a place to return to.
Therese H

My husband and I, our three adult children and my in-laws spent a week here this past December. The backyard/pool area is beautiful, the villa is very spacious, and the location has everything you need nearby. The manager, Philippe, was always available and very helpful. You definitely need a car to get around. I highly recommend NoNo car rental. They provided transportation to and from the airport and had a vehicle waiting for us at the villa. Overall, we loved St Martin, especially the French side where the villa is located.
