This is villa Joie de Vivre in Terres Basses, St. Martin. This beautiful 3 bedroom vacation rental is an absolutely amazing place to spend your next vacation.

I was lucky enough to spend some time inside this property to film it for St. Martin Sotheby’s Realty. Here’s their description of this wonderful home.

“Nestled within 4 acres of prime beachfront on beautiful Baie Rouge, Joie de Vivre is a multi-level 3 bedroom villa set in lush tropical gardens with a superb ocean backdrop.

The Mediterranean feel of the house with its cool white arches and warm terracotta hues are beautifully framed by the turquoise waters of the bay. The villa has a picturesque flower-lined path to the beach and a large classic pool with terracotta tiled terrace and stylish poolside lounging. A comfortable poolside gazebo provides shaded lounging and a BBQ area.

Upper levels house the main living spaces including an elegant outside lounge with ceiling fans and a fabulous panoramic view over the ocean and the nearby island of Anguilla. An arched balcony runs the length of this level opening out from a dining and living area and a large, well-equipped mahogany kitchen with generous counter space and a central island.

The 3 air-conditioned bedrooms each have king size beds, satellite TV’s, ceiling fans and elegant en-suite bathrooms. Other amenities include a stereo sound system throughout the villa and wifi.

Joie de Vivre offers comfort and elegance, excellent amenities and relaxed beachfront living all within minutes of the island’s best restaurants, shopping and nightlife.

Some of the things I love about this villa are the separation between the rooms and the amount of space there is on the property. When you first get to the property you would believe it’s a 5 or 6 bedroom home, but it’s only 3! Each room is on a different level and has it’s own benefits.

The gazebo on top, is an amazing place to hang out. The views are spectacular and since it’s covered, it’s a spot you can hang out without overheating. The breeze flows right through it.

The pool is large enough for all to enjoy and has an additional gazebo so everyone can feel a part of the party. And speaking of party, there are speakers throughout the house so the music fills the entire home. The seating area and grill will make this the spot to be!

And the best feature of this house is the walkway to the beach. This spot on the beach is rarely visted by outsiders, so it will feel like your own private getaway. The water here is perfect for cooling off and the sand is beautifully white and clean. AND the Wifi even reaches the beach, so you can get your Instagram stories going without a flaw!
