Photos and Description of the Almond Grove vacation villa rental

Unique Caribbean Style 4 Brm Villa With Pool In Peaceful & Secure Almond Grove

Your home away from home is set at the end of a cul-de-sac on a hill overlooking the Caribbean sea and Simpson Bay Lagoon. Whether you love sunbathing on the beach (some of the islands most beautiful beaches are on this side), dining in a different restaurant each night, gambling, dancing, tasting exotic Caribbean cocktails, snorkeling, diving, sailing, fishing, visiting the neighboring islands of St. Barth's, Anguilla or Saba - all are only a few minutes away - or you may just want to sit back and relax, lay in the hammock with a good book, go for a refreshing dip in the pool while you gaze out over the stunning view, sunset, or stars at night - it is magic to swim under the stars (the pool is equipped with a swim-jet for distance swimming). Here you are removed from the crowds - but have a captivating view from above of all the action of yachts and planes coming and going from a comfortable distance in the privacy of your own pool deck.

Built with beautiful Brazilian hardwood in the traditional Caribbean style with high ceilings, spacious rooms, and many doors & windows for open air living - the gentle Caribbean breezy flows freely through every room - (the bedrooms are air conditioned as well) - and it is fully mosquito screened - this is a very unique vacation rental home on St. Maarten / St. Martin.

Upon your arrival we will arrange to show you the way to the villa, and there we can give you any and all the information you would like about our lovely island.

Renting a car is the best way to get the most out of your visit. Your car park (has room for 3 cars) is right outside your entrance door, walk in to the open plan kitchen & living room looking straight out over the stunning view, continue on out to the pool deck with its salt chlorinated pool (only as salty as your tears, and no harmful chlorine) - here you can sit, relax and just take in the shimmering colors of the Caribbean while the odd humming bird pays a visit, and the breeze gently moves through the privacy giving tree tops surrounding the property.

Make yourself a drink (or some food) in the well equipped kitchen - modern fridge with ice-maker, dishwasher, corian counter tops and lots of space to move around. Take one step down into the comfortable living / dining room, turn on the ceiling fans and let the beauty of the Brazilian wooden structure surround you with its sense of tranquility.

All 3 bedrooms on the main floor open out onto the pool deck, have beautiful high beam structured ceilings, air conditioning & en suite bathrooms. The master bedroom is very large, with a king size bed, and its bathroom opens up to your own little private terrace with morning sun and afternoon shade.

The 2 other bedrooms are located facing the pool, each come with a skylight in the ceiling where you can watch the starry sky at night from your queen size bed, an en suite bathroom - each with its own toilet but a Jack'n'Jill (shared) shower.

The 4th bedroom is located on the ground floor with its own separate entrance, surrounded by garden - it is also en suite, spacious with a queen size bed and opens out into the garden.

The ground floor also has a small studio which is currently occupied by a friend of ours who helps to look after our home in our absence. He has his own driveway and entrance, and is very quiet so you'd most likely not notice him at all.

Included in your rental is a weekly maid service with change of linen & towel for stays over 7 nights. If you require we can arrange for more frequent maid service at an additional charge, just let us know well in advance.

The garden is lush and green - a bit on the wild side - with splashes of color from flowering bougainvilleas and more. Orange jasmines line the walkways and when in flower their delicate scent fills the air. Sugar birds, hummingbirds and the cute dainty ground doves, are all around. On rare occasions you can even spot an iguana in one of the surrounding treetops. In the evenings you hear in the background the tropical night 'music' made by the 'invisible' native tree frogs.

We look forward to hearing from you - and please, feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

Included in the rate: Mid-week half day housekeeping for stays over 7 nights. Final Cleaning is no extra charge as long as villa is left in a decent state.
The Base rate is based on 4 persons using 2 Bedrooms and the $40 additional per person/night is based on double occupancy of additional bedrooms - Room rate per additional bedroom is $80/night even when used by a single person - we have chosen to structure the rates to be 'as per bedroom used' in order to make the villa available at a lower rate for fewer people – and not charging everyone the full rate for the use of all 4 bedrooms, even if they don't use them.
