“Beautiful La Casita”
Reviewed 14 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

As advertised- La Casita is a wonderful 3 bedroom 3 bathroom villa located a stones throw(or less than) from the turquoise water of the carribean. Fantastic home layout offers great kitchen dining and living room, 3 private bedrooms, and amazing outdoor living spaces for dining or just relaxing by the private pool. Location is superb- easy to access, close to all of the attractions, yet very quiet and private. Owner and housekeeping(daily service) are very responsive, kind and easy to work with- always available to help if needed. I highly recommend La Casita- the property is delightful and conducive to couples, friends, or families. Book it and enjoy!

This villa is located nearly at the end of a peninsula facing west overlooking Burgeaux Bay. You will be lulled to sleep by the soothing sounds of the surf (we loved it) and that sound is unavoidable as the surf hits the large rocks just below the bedroom. The locked and secure villa door from the driveway opens up to a covered outdoor eating area overlooking the private pool with two separate buildings both of which also have their own secure locks. The main building is on your left and is a long building with the kitchen at one end and the bedroom at the opposite end. Between the two rooms is a living room with steps that lead down to the bathroom and bedroom (bathroom is an open concept with a wooden vanity that has two sinks, a separate tiled shower, and a small toilet room with a door--no exhaust fan but louvered window). The air conditioning, propane gas stove, microwave oven, coffee maker, TV, wifi, etc. were all in good working condition and made for a pleasant stay. The BBQ (nice feature) had one small issue where the ash door has seized up making removal of the ashes and venting from the bottom difficult. The private pool deck and private outdoor shower are excellent for relaxing in the hot sun and staying cool. You will want to rent a car for getting around and we highly recommend driving to Orient Beach for a day to experience the beach, restaurants and bars which is much different from Simpson Bay and Maho Beach.

My wife and I have been renting villas in St. Maarten for nearly 10 years and we have come to expect that all villas must have tile floors throughout to protect against water damage and any wood furniture will have a slight mustiness from the humidity--that has been consistent with all villa rentals. We loved our stay at this villa and will likely stay here again but we had a few minor concerns we would like to share. The road to the villa is sometimes temporarily blocked by construction or emergency vehicles near Maho Beach or near the villa where you may have a choice of navigating around the obstruction. The owner of the villa has an internet phone connected to a USA number so that is a great feature for calling the US, but there should be a way to quickly dial for local emergency medical/police assistance in the event of an emergency (beware slippery tile after drinking around the pool). Lastly, while the housekeeper was friendly and did a great job of keeping the villa spotless, she and the local property manager both did not respond to telephone voice mails and the housekeeper showed up over 1 1/2 hrs late for our check-out. Lucky for us we were not flying out that day but we did miss another scheduled appointment on the island which was quite frustrating. It should be noted that the US owner of the villa did respond to our phone and email with a solution to that issue within approximately one hour of our calling him (after failing to get in touch with the housekeeper or local property manager). I imagine he was frustrated as well. With all that said, we highly recommend this villa rental. It does not have 5-star modern amenities but the kitchen is modern, and the overall villa is a lot nicer than nearly all of the hotels and condo rentals at a similar price--throw in the privacy of having your own villa, your own private pool, kitchen, BBQ, etc. and this is a great value!
