Lovely property but we had problems
Not my first trip to the island...first, let me say this property is beautiful and well managed. We arrived on 7/14, a group of 5 ladies for a girls trip. On the first night, we locked up, but did not put the hurricane shutters down on the living room (all other shutters were closed). We locked the sliding glass doors which have 3 separate locks. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to us, the lock on the far left side was faulty. We went to sleep around 1am on our first night there and arose around 7:45 am, only to discover within the next few hours that someone had entered the home while we were sleeping and taken our belongings from the living room area. It was early in our stay, (less than 24 hours) and the internet router was giving us problems so we couldn’t communicate immediately with the property manager. To our good fortune, housekeeping arrived and made contact with the owner and property manager to alert them of our robbery. Both, the owner and property manager were immediately available and gave excellent attention to our situation... the maintenance guy, David, who was just a precious Man, came and worked on fixing the faulty lock on the glass doors for us as well. We ended up recovering from the invasion, and I cannot say how thankful we were for the attention we received following this incident. For the next 6 days, we kept all hurricane shutters down, and didn’t sleep well, but made it through the week. We literally spent the week like we were in a bunker, unless we were on the deck by the pool, watching the surroundings. While this is a beautiful property, the surroundings are just not safe at all. The occurrence put a damper on our vacation, but we managed to make the best of it. Just wish we could have enjoyed all that this beautiful villa had to offer....maid service 3x week was awesome.....management oversight was awesome...and they went over and beyond to assure we were assisted throughout our ordeal. If you book here, just be safe and put the hurricane shutters down if you are not out on deck. Dont trust that because the pool and deck are too high to climb over that you are truly safe. Will we come back to St Maarten? Not sure right now....but Severine, Carole Et Alex, and David were such nice people, and truly took great care of us thru all of this... thanks so much...Trish
Villa Topaze-June 2019
Villa Topaze is absolutely beautiful. When you walk through the front door, you will see the magnificent view of the ocean. The bedrooms, bathrooms, and living areas are gorgeous. If you like to cook,the kitchen is well stocked and the barbecue grill is great. The pool area is very private. The owners are wonderful. If you need anything, they are there for you. Also they installed a generator in case the electricity goes out. We will definitely go back. One of our best vacations on the island.
Unbelievable vacation villa
Three couples stayed at this amazing villa. Everyone loved it. It was well-equipped, clean, extremely comfortable, and had an amazing view. Severine and Alex were amazing hosts who were there if we needed anything. They also went above and beyond, providing us with some beer/water/and breakfast items. We all felt like we were staying at a fancy resort--only this was much better!
Our week at the villa was extraordinary. The place was perfection. Alex and Severine were thoughtful and always helpful. I had a week with my two adult children and their girlfriends that I will always remember. I feel very grateful.
Beatiful villa with amazing view
We stayed for a week in this amazing villa, and are already planning on returning on a future trip!
The villa was just as beautiful as pictured (if not more so!), very clean, with no real issues to speak of, has maid service three times a week, very comfortable beds, great air conditioning, and a fully appointed kitchen with Nespresso machine, coffee maker, good non-stick pans, and plenty of plates and utensils. Good quality toiletries were provided in all the bathrooms (soap, shampoo, bodywash, etc.). A gas grill is also out front, but we didn't use it on this trip.
USB ports in in a couple rooms are handy that you can use to charge devices without using adapters, and there are programmable safes in each bedroom. There was also a Bluetooth speaker that came in handy for playing music inside or out by the pool. The storm doors/shutters are also electric which makes it easy to fully secure the villa, help keep it cool while you're gone during the day, or block out any light if you choose.
The villa is in a great location and gated neighborhood that felt very safe, overlooking Orient bay from the hillside, and gets a good breeze that kept any mosquitoes away. Just a couple minutes drive to Orient Beach or Orient Village, and a few more minutes to Grand Case for great restaurants. The Leader Price grocery is also close by (just a couple minutes on the way to Grand Case).
Severine was friendly, attentive, and quick to respond to any questions we had. Can't wait to go back!
Honeymoon in St. Martin
Very clean, wonderful location in the nicer area of the island. Owner was helpful. We would stay here again.
