We were very pleased with our decision to stay at Carisma. The condo was beautifully decorated and was very comfortable and truly had anything we needed. It was close to many fabulous places to eat and markets to get any sundries you may need. The fully stocked kitchen had everything we needed plus much more. It was very clean which is important to me. We enjoyed the deck most of all with its great views of the ocean and passing boats. We enjoyed snorkeling and beach combing right at the end of the stairs. The owners were easily available for any concerns, but there were not any. I highly recommend this place if you are looking to stay on the Dutch side. This is the one you want.
This villa has everything one could want for a fabulous beach get-away! The location - directly on the water - provides magnificent views from the patio/hot tub. You can look out over the water and see Saba and on clear days, St Kitts and Nevis. Sunset views are breath-taking. Great beaches and restaurants are a short walk away.
The unit was immaculate (thanks Paula!), beautifully furnished and very well equipped. The drinks and snacks we found on arrival were a great treat! The owners are close-by and were very responsive to our questions and needs. We highly recommend Carisma for a stay in Simpson Bay.
We recently returned from a two week stay at the beautiful Carisma villa. From the start the owners, Paul and Carmen made us feel so welcome. Refreshments and snacks in the refrigerator (a lovely touch) were provided on our arrival along with a beautiful, immaculate home that made us feel like we were at home. Everything possible we needed was provided! This villa is so cozy, comfortable and lovely. Waking up everyday to the marvelous Caribbean view is a memory not to be forgotten. Our happy hours around the hot tub on the terrace while gazing at the Sea was indeed another highlight of our stay at Carisma on stunning St. Maarten. We highly recommend Carisma to anyone visiting St. Maarten (great location) and we are very thankful to Carmen and Paul for providing us with this grand vacation spot and for being such delightful hosts. If you want paradise perfect, do not hesitate to book this villa!
Carisma is an amazing villa, located right on the beach. This trip was a 35th birthday present for our son who had never been to St. Martin. My husband and I have been going for 16 years, but this was our first time at Carisma. The villa has everything you could imagine or need and if it wasn't there, the owners, Paul and Carmen would get it for you. Top of the line kitchen that even the most experienced chef would enjoy and a beautiful patio overlooking azure waters to enjoy that meal or simply a glass of wine.
Looking forward to going back in a few months!
We could not have asked for more. We were with another couple that had never been to St. Maarten and we all hated to leave. Great location, beautiful villa, the fridge was stocked with drinks and snacks when we arrived (VERY UNUSUAL) and there was everything we needed in the villa for our 10 day stay. It was everything advertised and more. Paul, the owner was great to deal with.
We have stayed at many places in St. Maarten over the years and this was the absolute BEST! I It is just is not possible to say enough good things about Carisma.
THANKS PAUL AND CARMEN ! !
We thoroughly enjoyed your villa and all of its amenities and especially the personal care provided by both of you. It was appreciated. The decor is beautiful and provides wonderful comfort and convenience and everything you could possibly wish for in a beautiful seaside location. We will certainly be recommending Villa Carisma to our friends who travel in the Caribbean and when we travel again to St. Martin we would not wish to stay any other place.

Had a wonderful time at Villa Carisma for our honeymoon. Doesn't get get much better than a private villa with jacuzzi pool right on the beach! Beautifully decorated and fully stocked with everything you need. We will definitely be repeat renters.
