Joie de Vivre, St. Martin villa review

We have rented villas throughout the Caribbean and Central America, and Joie de Vivre is at the top of the list. The location is great. We had the beach area in front of the villa completely to ourselves. The entire beach is very uncrowded with only some limited activity near the public entrance to the far right end of the beach. The villa supplies beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach towels. It is an easy walk from the beach to the villa. The villa itself is immaculate and very spacious. The three bedrooms are very large, comfortable, and have incredible views. The en suite bathrooms and closets are spacious as well. The kitchen is well appointed, with all needed cookware, dishware, and accessories. Between the pool area, pool gazebo, and upstairs porches, there are so many outdoor seating areas that the villa could comfortably accommodate dozens of guests. The villa grounds are well-kept, secured with fences and gates, and very private. There is convenient access to restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping. It is close enough to visit the more crowded beaches and tourist spots, but then quickly return to the tranquility and privacy of the villa. Best of all are Jennifer the housekeeper and Colin the groundskeeper. They are wonderful, friendly people and full of local knowledge.

I wholeheartedly recommend Jean, Lori and the WhereToStay team. They took care of every detail including airport greeter, airport transfers, car rental and delivery, groceries, and set up concierge services. Jean’s local knowledge and recommendations sets this company apart. Jean’s restaurant, shopping, and excursion recommendations were spot-on. Our concierge (Giovanni) was available at all hours and went out of his way to use his personal contacts to make reservations for us. Of special note is the villa reservation process. It was very nice to be able to speak to Jean and have her answer questions and confirm availability before paying for the villa, as opposed to other agencies that require a blind online credit card payment for a reservation without any initial personal interaction or human confirmation of availability.

This is a true five star Caribbean villa.

Joie de Vivre, St. Martin villa review

This Caribbean villa has all the right amenities.  The gardens are unbelievable, and the whole house is open to the ocean with surround sound music throughout the house. It is truly a surreal experience.

Joie de Vivre, St. Martin villa review

Joie de Vivre was more than we ever expected from the pictures we saw prior to our trip. 

The villa was wonderful with beautiful views of the sea and Anguilla.  The sunsets were amazing!  The beach was just beautiful, unpopulated, with great snorkeling right there! 

We highly recommend it.
