Gorgeous views, great accommodations
What a great place to stay and enjoy life! Casa Del Sol is simply the perfect place for some friends or families to get together and enjoy the beauty of Saint Martin. Gorgeous views, great accommodations, has all the amenities one could possibly need all accompanied by a gracious hostess and that friendly island feel. Want to feel pampered, comfortable, safe and part of the island experience..this is the place to go!

Fabulous house, fabulous views, fabulous host (Veronique) with lots of attention to detail!
Perfect first Caribbean vacation and great experience at Casa Azul with Veronique. Niece’s graduation present (Dec. from Marshall College) as always wanted to “swim with the dolphins” (took ferry to Anguilla), her 24th birthday was New Year’s Eve (Veronique got us reservations), and it was our 25th year wedding anniv. Was us, my sister & her husband and children age 18, 21, 24, who loved everything about the week. I couldn’t have scripted it better. Veronique plugged our number into her cell phone when we met. She checked in by text, and we’d text with questions. She was responsive. She left us a great fruit basket and stuff to start with (Guava jam, coffee, milk, etc.). Lots of attention to detail, from noodles/toys for the pool, to nice, large, beach towels, to a large cooler with ice packs for day trips/beach, to mosquito repellant. to 110/220 V adapters for the cell phone chargers. Best stocked rental kitchen. Lots of dishes/glasses of all types, three sets of silverware, so didn’t have to do the dishes immediately, and dishwasher. Electric juicer and heavy-duty blender were appreciated, with good selection of pots, pans and knives. Kitchen had a old island feel to it with tiled counters and heavy wood cutting boards, functional, with nice frig with lots of ice cube trays (or buy ice by bag), and great opening to pool area. Very casual, comfortable house, with character and nice covered outdoor sitting and dining area, w/crank down side tarps for wind. Bathrooms have great tile work and you feel like you’re in an island villa. Toilets off the hallways. Very nicely decorated. Views incredible. Open stairway to second floor (no rail). Great day trip to Pinel Island (ferry 9 – 5, don’t miss leisurely 30 min walk to smaller peak, or longer hike to the top, with incredible 360 degree view). Close to butterfly farm (go when sunny as more activity, you can get a pass for your entire stay, w/new butterflies born every am). Not far to Parrot Villa where you can feed them (skip if bird phobia). Favorite restaurant by far was Le Piment in the village. Paradise View 5 min away. Mosquitoes are “small but mighty” so bring favorite spray and close up house at night before turning inside lights on. Were trying to do without rental car, but it gives you more flexibility so Veronique coordinated one on short notice. Opted to remove fragrance sticks to front porch. We’ll definitely be back! See guest book for more info.

A Family Vacation to Cherish
What a gorgeous villa, and gracious hostess. Villa Pinel overlooks a beautiful bay, and comes stocked with kayaks to explore it with. The villa itself easily accommodated our family of six adults, with very comfortable beds. It was well stocked with drinks, and even a welcome basket of fruits and breakfast treats. Veronique also offered us some great recommendations for exploring the area and sampling the excellent cuisine of the region. She was very responsive to any requests we made. Our group included some people who are very active and some who aren’t; with all the secluded and peaceful sitting areas, the pool, the beach and kayaks, and close access to hiking trails, everything worked well for us all. We’re already planning when we can return.

Lovely stay at orient beach
We just recently returned from a lovely stay at Casa Azul. We have rented this villa several times with friends and also other families, and this past trip, two families with four young children. Veronique has always been very responsive and helpful, and this time she left a basket of beach and pool toys, and supplied two cribs and two high chairs for us. She also helped us find an English speaking babysitter so we could enjoy two nights out to dinner away from the kids. The village is very convenient to shop and get croissants and baguettes. We always have a lovely time and can’t wait to come back!!

Paradise with a view
Our stay at casa Azul was fantastic. We have stayed at Veronique’s properties a number of times before, and have never been disappointed. The house is always clean, and the fridge comes stocked with drinks! The location can’t be beat. Whether you want to hang at the pool or head to the beach, casa Azul can accommodate both. Cleaners come twice a week, and pool guy comes once a week. We saw chickens, lizards, and turtles on the property which the kids loved!

Spring Break Getaway!
We had a wonderful week at Casa del Sol! The villa was beautiful with plenty of room for all and the pool and views were amazing! We all enjoyed the iguanas as well – you don’t see those in NJ! Veronique covered any questions for us and also had great recommendations for places to go and things to do. The warm welcome was especially gracious. I would definitely recommend Case del Sol!

Wonderful villa – fantastic views
We just returned from 10 nights in Casa del Sol. Veronique was lovely to deal with and the villa was exactly as advertised. Very private and spacious. The pool was lovely and cleaned regularly. Our girls especially enjoyed the daily visits from the iguanas! We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone and will stay there again. Thanks again Veronique from your Canadian friends!

Million dollar views… Priceless service
Last week four of us (two middle aged couples) spent a week at Casa del Sol. The villa was as advertised, and outfitted with all the necessities for our week (including 2 refrigerators, a 2 bottle wine cooler (temperature settings for red and white), nicely equipped kitchen, etc) The pictures do not do justice to the views. Every angle affords unbelievable views of orient bay. Although up on a hill, my wife and I walked down (and back up) to the bakeries in the morning , and walked back down to the beach after a relaxing breakfast in the outdoor dining area at the villa. Most of all, the experience was greatly enhanced by the owner, Veronique! From the first email, throughout our stay, and even after we checked out, Veronique took great care of us. My wife and I extended our stay on the island, and Veronique continued to be a great resource for recommendations and information. THE PERFECT * Veronique * covered outdoor entertainment area with seating for more than 10. *pool and deck area.. Plenty of lounge chairs, beautiful pool, all overlooking orient bay *fully equipped kitchen * PRIVATE *walking proximity to shops, restaurant, beach. THE NOT SO PERFECT (very minor) * the beautiful and roomy great room needs some type of whole room fan or cooling for evenings when the doors to the patio are closed. *the bathroom door in second master doesn’t close. Overall, not only would we highly recommend Casa del Sol to our friends, we would definitely return next time we visit St Martin! THANK YOU VERONIQUE!

Absolutely awesome vacation home!
Stayed in March 2014 — This villa was EXACTLY as portrayed in the pictures. Truly amazing home for our 3 generation family’s visit; it far exceeded our expectations! owner of this villa has thought of everything, including pool toys and beach toys for the little ones. We will be returning to this piece of paradise!
Joni T., Pataskala, Ohio Mar 2014
We were very impressed
You can’t beat Casa Del Sol. The location is great, the amount of space is great and Veronique, the owner, is wonderful. My family and I travel quite a bit and were very impressed with Casa Del Sol (it is up there as one of the top places we’ve stayed). The house is in a gated community, allowing privacy and comfort. The pool is very nice, not to mention the patio which opens up to the house with sliding glass doors. Casa Del Sol is the full package.

We had a fabulous week at Casa del Sol!
My family, including 5 kids, stayed at Casa del Sol for a week. The house was even more beautiful than the pictures and Veronique attended to every detail. The kids really enjoyed the pool and the beach was amazing. It was a fantastic vacation and Veronique was a wonderful hostess!!

Everything you expect in a vacation home!
The house turned out as everything I’d hoped for: clean and updated; comfortable and open design perfect for families; air-conditioned rooms and nice bathrooms; daily cleaning service kept the place fresh; and a private pool with spectacular views of St Barths. We had 7 adults and an 18-mo old baby, and the place was plenty spacious for us. Private gate into the small community provides added security. Nice 10 minute walk to Orient Beach (hilly on the way back up, but pleasant); 3 min drive to grocery store; 5 min drive to butterfly farm; 15 min drive to Grand Case. Veronique’s hospitality was great: local mobile phone provided, chef recommendation, and responsive to our needs. Being the first time renting a villa online, naturally I was unsure of how the experience would go. Casa del Sol did not disappoint. Thanks V!

Rooms were over the top
Absolutely beautiful. All the rooms were over the top and the that’s just the beginning. The view of Orient Bay is stunning! The nice welcome basket made coming home to St Martin even better!! Thank you for a wonderful stay.
