Tres Belle Villa is a wonderful property. I could very easily start to ramble in talking about it, so I'll try to organize my comments a bit.

Location: It's very convenient to the airport and only a few minutes off the main road, allowing you to easily get to almost any place on either side of the island. We explored virtually the whole island, so this was great for us. If you really want to be convenient to Marigot's shops or restaurants, or plan to spend a lot of time in one area, you might want to locate yourself there. The island does have a fair amount of traffic, and driving to the French side through Marigot can be time consuming, although not terrible. The location of the villa itself on the Coral Shores property is awesome. It's right on the water, 30 seconds to the pool, surrounded by beautiful landscaping, but you feel like you could be the only ones there. We hardly ever saw our immediate neighbors next door and the people we saw at the pool were very friendly and relaxed. There's great views - cruise ships, sunsets, etc.

Things to do at the villa: The pool is very nice and cleaned almost daily while we were there. I went snorkeling in the ocean almost every day from the stairs near the pool and saw lots of different fish, starfish, and a barracuda. The water was quite rough for a few days while we were there, but for the most part, it wasn't an issue - just dramatic as it splashed. If you love plants, you could spend a while walking around the gardens and looking at the different flora and fauna. We didn't walk or bike around the neighborhoods (because we were always going somewhere or having downtime after going somewhere), but many people did. Of course, it's easy to relax, watch TV or movies that they have there, read a book, etc.

Furnishings: This is a great place to relax, from the comfortable chairs on the deck to the loungers in the family room, the nice TV/DVD, well equipped kitchen, laundry, spacious bedrooms and baths. We have two kids and they loved their room with twin beds and their own bath. Our master was super comfortable and always in range of the ocean's sounds. A/C units worked very well. Decent size safe, although won't hold a laptop. Wireless internet worked great too. Gas grill was out of commission during our stay - a minor disappointment that's probably fixed now. Great quantity of fresh towels! Also water toys for the kids.

Safety/Security: We received a full briefing on how to keep the place secure when we arrived. This frankly put us a little ill at ease at first, but (although we followed the directions) we felt very safe here. The island in general gives off a positive vibe in terms of the people and their friendliness. We spoke to many people throughout our stay and they were always friendly and helpful. There's very little (obvious) homelessness or vagrancy. Coral Shores felt very safe and tucked away. We never had any issues with our car being bothered, and we went all over.

Owners: Bob and Pam were really wonderful to correspond with. They were very helpful and responsive.

Things to note: St. Martin does have its share of mosquitoes - bring repellent.

Management Response

We have had over 70 guests at our villa with never a complaint about mosquitoes, inside or out. We took Mr. de Ridder's issue to heart and made changes with the cleaning process, so the screens will not be left open while cleaning. The villa is sprayed monthly for pests. Additionally, we provide mosquito repellent in the villa for the comfort of our quests.

We are sorry Mrs. deRidder had a bad experience with mosquitoes and strive to maintain the highest standards possible.
