About Daniel and Isabelle Stoffaes
Recently retired from a senior executive position in the trading of materials and from a literary translator position, we split our time between Guadeloupe and France. We love travelling the world (USA, South America, Asia, Australia, New Zeeland, and, of course, Europe). In spite of that, we are always impatient to go back to Deshaies, where we spend 6 months a year. Here, we split our time between swimming, hiking, river excursions and nice times with friends.
Daniel and Isabelle Stoffaes purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Daniel and Isabelle Stoffaes chose Deshaies
As retirement approached, we started looking for a place where we could find a counterbalance for our stays in the Parisian region. We naturally thought of Guadeloupe, where we spent our childhood. We both fell in love with Deshaies, its stunning Grande Anse Beach, and its small postcard-like village. Our dream house was waiting for us; it was made of exotic wood with stunning views of the Caribbean Sea. In order to maintain it, we chose to rent it during our stays in France.
What makes this Villa unique
The infinite blue of the sea as a horizon, the green tropical vegetation as a setting and the soft exotic wood for a total change of scenery. In addition, we live in this house for a large part of the year and we equipped, furnished and decorated it for feeling great. Our guests will find much more than the strictly necessary.

A chance to live in a treehouse
This is an absolutely beautiful property -- a chance to live outdoors in a tropical paradise! The kitchen and living area are all on a beautiful outdoor veranda, surrounded by a garden filled with hummingbirds. The house is all wood, smells wonderful, and feels like a treehouse with amazing views of the ocean. Overall, I highly recommend staying here. The only issue we had is that we were three couples, and because the house is so open, I recommend it more for a single family with children. Also, as the house is in a tropical paradise, mosquitoes are a bit of an issue, so be sure to use bug spray at all times. Finally, the property manager, Philip, is part of what makes the property so great - he will be available at all times to make sure you have a wonderful stay.
Beautiful property, great location and faultless service
We stayed in August 2018 as a family of six, plus friend, children aged 12 to 20, and the property was exactly as described, if not better. It is tastefully decorated and feels homely yet relaxed enough for a holiday. The views are amazing, especially at sunset and the area is my favourite in Guadeloupe. The owners were excellent in the booking and planning process and Philip handled every enquiry and question brilliantly on site. We were recommended to hire a car from Gwadloc and they were excellent too!
Thank you very much for your very nice review.
We will be very happy to welcome you again in our villa.

Beautiful, well-appointed, comfortable house with stunning views. A great way to experience Guadeloupe, its beaches and hikes, near the lovely town of Deshaies.
Merci beaucoup Karen pour vos efforts et pour votre appréciation.
Nous espérons vous accueillir bientôt de nouveau dans notre villa.
We spent New Year at Villa Maya and enjoyed every minute. This villa is outstanding. Perfectly designed so that the breeze blows through the house and the terrace shades you from the sun so you can sit outside and enjoy the views. It is set in tropical gardens and we spent a large part of our week watching and feeding the birds, especially the humming birds. The kitchen is well stocked, like a proper family kitchen rather than a rental house and we all loved the outdoor shower. Beware of the hill if you are renting a car! Very small engines with fully loaded car will struggle! Just perfect - hope to return!
We thank you very much for your so nice review.
You have appreciated all what we appreciate in our villa.
We would be very happy to welcome you again.
Happy new year!

Beautiful villa close to the beach!
We had a great time at the Villa. Daniel and Isabelle were very good host and provided everything we needed and even went to get an extra pack n play for our 2nd baby. They were very accomodating and nice.
The villa is exactly like described and we enjoyed dinners and breakfast on the terrace.
I highly recommend this place close to so many beaches. We liked the one right down the house (Grande Anse) but also a lot Petite Anse beach a few kms away.
Merci beaucoup pour votre appréciation.
Vous avez été également des locataires parfaits.
Nous sommes très heureux que vous ayez apprécié la villa et les plages alentours.
Je ne sais pas si vous avez pu faire un peu de tourisme ou si vous avez surtout profité des plages.
Isabelle et moi vous présentons nos meilleurs vœux pour cette nouvelle année et espérons vous accueillir de nouveau.
Bien à vous
Beautiful villa with amazing ocean view
This place is wonderful - beautiful wooden villa with tropical garden and an amazing view. We were 2 families staying there (4 adults and 4 children) and the place was just perfect us. We spent most of the time on the patio so the detached bedroom (on pool level) wasn't really a problem. The kitchen is very well equipped and served us well when we decided to cook. Every morning we went to Deshaies to buy freshly baked baguettes so our breakfast was a long meal.
The beaches: Grande Anse and la Perle are really close and they are both beautiful. Plage de la Perle has bigger waves (and our children liked it). We also visited the other part of the island (Grande Terre) but we were really happy to choose Deshaies because it was less crowded, the beaches were so beautiful and Basse Terre is more lush. We got some nice advice from Philip - he is a great source of local knowledge.
To summarize: beautiful location, clean and well equipped villa with amazing view and exotic garden. Highly recommended!
Thank you very much for your appreciation.
We will be very happy to welcome you again.
Many restaurants and caterers nearby. Lovely botanical garden 3 km away. Boat rental for navigating on the lagoon.
