Holiday Rental House
Located in a private gated community, perched along the ocean cliffs in Pelican Key (just above Simpson Bay) St Maarten, stands Villa Velaire - a private two bedroom/2.5 bath rental villa. The Villa, recently renovated and completely redecorated in September of 2013, uses an eclectic mix of British West Indies and Balinese design to harmonize with both the Caribbean style architecture and the tropical location. Just inside the entry at Villa Velaire, off to the right is the fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Should you choose to stay in and prepare breakfast, an afternoon cocktail or dinner - it won't be such a chore, as you will find all the comforts of home - a full size refrigerator, four- burner range/stove, dishwasher, blender, sauté pans etc. Just past the kitchen stands the open floo...Located in a private gated community, perched along the ocean cliffs in Pelican Key (just above Simpson Bay) St Maarten, stands Villa Velaire - a private two bedroom/2.5 bath rental villa. The Villa, recently renovated and completely redecorated in September of 2013, uses an eclectic mix of British West Indies and Balinese design to harmonize with both the Caribbean style architecture and the tropical location. Just inside the entry at Villa Velaire, off to the right is the fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Should you choose to stay in and prepare breakfast, an afternoon cocktail or dinner - it won't be such a chore, as you will find all the comforts of home - a full size refrigerator, four- burner range/stove, dishwasher, blender, sauté pans etc. Just past the kitchen stands the open floor living and dining area, the heart of this villa. Casual fabrics were used for a more relaxed feel, focusing on quality and comfort. Many of the furnishing in both the living and dining area were brought in from Bali with added wicker accents to define the transitional style. Just beyond the living and dining room stands a 10 foot deep covered outside terrace. The covered terrace serves as a sitting and dining space, perfect for a respite from the afternoon sun or alfresco dining with the most magnificent views. For the sun worshippers, there are four teak lounge chairs to enjoy relaxing by the private pool, watching the cruise ships sail away or just listening to the sound of breaking waves along the cliffs. By night, enjoy a favorite glass of wine, stretch out and stargaze. Back inside the villa, on the second floor, you will find the two air-conditioned king suites widely separated for exceptional privacy (perfect for couples traveling together). Both bedrooms feature en suite baths and custom designed four post king-size beds. The high vaulted ceiling imparts a grand sense of scale and spaciousness. Attached to the second bedroom is the meditation/massage room and private balcony overlooking the pool terrace and Caribbean. Call one of the many island massage therapists for your private in-home massage - Can you think of a better way to start your vacation. Villa Velaire is furnished with your comfort in mind without sacrificing its artful elegance and style. This rare oceanfront villa located on the beautiful island of St Maarten will fulfill most vacation wish lists. Villa Velaire can be booked as a 1 or 2 bedroom, depending on your needs, There is an additional charge of $43/per night for use of the 2nd Bedroom. PLEASE NOTE: if you only need ONE Bedroom, the 2nd bedroom is closed (it is NEVER rented out to anyone else).More

Interaction with guests
I am available via phone or email. I am recommending to all my guests that they download the WhatsApp on their cell phone prior to leaving If there is anyone in the US that you would need to talk to frequently, have them download WhatsApp, as well. Anyone who has WhatsApp can talk to each other for free, no matter where you are in the world. Our Island Contacts (as well as most of the people on the island) have WhatsApp and use this to communicate. If you need to contact your Island contact by phone, this is how you would need to call them.

About the neighbourhood
Because of its stunning scenery, Pelican Key is a prized location for many residential homes and resorts. As you drive up along the main road (Billy Folly Rd), you will notice some of the most exclusive villas on the island. Visitors will find the world famous Red Piano - a hotspot with locals and visitors alike offering live music every night. The local supermarket, albeit small, is Peli-Deli and you can find pretty much anything you would need for the week, groceries, beer/liquor/wine, sundries and it's surprisingly affordable. All of these businesses are located less than 0.5 mile from Villa Velaire, an easy walk.
Getting around
While there are several restaurants/bars and shops less than a mile away, a car is recommended.
