This was a lovely villa situated on the west end of Simpsom Bay. The view of the bay spectacular. We have traveled to a number of villas in the US and Mexico and this was our first experience with a villa in St. Maarten. On the website (luxuryretreats.com) it was listed as being in Terra Basses when in actuality it's in a small non-gated yet very nice neighborhood called Mt rouge and its villa 502. The pool is great and the furnishings are a lovely euro-rustic antique mix that works well. The place felt safe, but there were locks, gates and an alarm system. There is a safe in the bedroom. The three bedrooms are great, each with its own shower and bathroom and hair dryer. Each has its own AC. DON'T drink the tap water. Very nice grocery store just south in Porto Cupecoy. The kitchen was suited well for small amounts of cooking. The wifi was reliable. The Dish Network TV worked well in the living room.
