Multiple outdoor entertainment areas at Happy Days were designed to kick back, relax and enjoy the commanding sea view on 180°.

Fantastic stay
My wife and I visited St. Martin for the third time to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Each trip to St. Martin we’ve stayed in a villa. Once in Terres Basses, once in Orient Bay and Villa Happy Days. Villa Happy Days is simply spectacular with 180-degree view of the Caribbean looking toward Antigua. One of the best things about choosing this villa was the Q&A with Melissa, the booking agent. Melissa is simply fantastic, answering all questions and helping set up additional activities. Melissa is not only great leasing agent, but a fantastic concierge. She met us with a wonderful welcoming basket and was available during the entire week for any follow up questions about the villa and about St. Martin. Villa Happy Days is in a perfect location for the French side of the island. About 10 minutes from Marigot, 10 minutes from Orient Beach and 5 minutes from all the great restaurants in Grand Case. The villa itself is well laid out – kitchen, family room, 3 outside sitting areas and a beautiful infinity pool. There’s also 2 hot tubs, one at the pool and one downstairs. It would be nice if the pool hot tub had variable temperature control – it stays a constant “warm”. The family room and kitchen open up making the downstairs a part of the outdoors as well. There are 2 master bedrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs and a third bedroom, which we did not see as it was kept locked. And, the AC was extremely good – if you like to crank it down at night, the windows and sliding doors have hurricane shutters making it completely DARK! We were there from Tuesday to Tuesday and there was maid service on Saturday. Towels for the pool and beach are provided. The kitchen is pretty well stocked and we even had a chef, arranged by Melissa, come in one night to cook dinner. The pictures of the villa on this web-site are very up to date! The family room has a great TV with DIRECTV. There is a power strip for all your phones and tablets for charging; however, if you want 110-volt plug-in in other areas you should bring adapters. This area is quite secure as there is a security gate to enter the sub-division and another security gate for the villa. Melissa will supply opening “clickers” once you arrive. We love St. Martin! Villa Happy Days is a 10-minute walk to Friar’s Bay Beach and a 10 minute walk to secluded Happy Beach! We prefer the French side b/c my wife likes shopping in Marigot and Grand Case. We also spent one day on a private catamaran…

Exceeded our very high expectations!
Villa Happy Days was absolute paradise. On the initial drive through the gates when you see the elaborate stonework and lush landscaping it feels like the most elegant of resorts. Then enter the extremely well planned home and see that jaw dropping view, it is magnificent. The home is on several levels so photographs make it appear smaller than it is. This would be ideal for several couples/families traveling together as there is some separation and therefore privacy among each of the bedroom suites it seems (there were 2 of us and 2 of several bedrooms were opened, both equally lovely, spacious and well appointed). The upper master has a large and lovely sitting room as well. These savvy owners thought of everything, every light switch is where you need it, hurricane shutters are all automatic and make for a cool dark bedroom when you want it, nightstands flank the gorgeous 4 poster bed and lamps have a hand toggle so you don’t even have to stretch to reach, just a few examples of attention to detail often lacking in rental properties. The master bath has dual shower heads with a nice sprayer interesting uplighting and is so pretty in it’s blue and white tile and sparking sea blue glass sink. Toilet is in its own separate space. You can watch boats and the lights on Anguilla from the Master BA, BR, LR, KIT, Lower Master and probably a few other rooms we didn’t see! Views were absolutely stunning and the boat traffic was really fun to watch, far enough to still be private and quiet, very secluded yet views in all directions were impossibly pretty. I am usually the person saying, “Where do you want to go next?” I found myself completely enchanted and mesmerized by Villa Happy Days. My husband and I skipped a lot of tourist attractions as we lazed in the glorious pool watching the boats and jetskis, etc. go by and thinking for once, that we would rather be here than anywhere else and that they must be looking up wondering who was lucky enough to be in such a wonderful place. The pool was warm and you could see the ocean while swimming, we often hung on the edge, glasses posied nearby and just watched the activity in the water, the birds, lizards and butterflies, swaying palms and breezes blowing the tropical landscape below. The jacuzzi worked well and the gazebo was one of our favorite places to spend an evening, very comfortable. Stone paths lead through beautiful tropical plants, my husband told me the fragrance was incredible but I seemed to only check it after a rain. We watched maybe an hour or two tv while there, they seem to have a lot of premium channels through directv. There were plenty of towels, the house cleaner came once and pool service was, both unobtrusive and efficient, floors were even mopped during our stay. There are several safes, lots of closets, plenty of hangers, hairdryers, etc. Booking, arrival and checkout were a breeze with Melissa’s patient help. She was on call and at the ready for us, though we didn’t mean to call her at 4:00 am (sorry!). She is a delightful, patient and considerate young woman. We found the walk to Happy Bay slightly more rugged and sunny (read HOT) than that to Friar’s. Both were easy for the sure footed and interesting as we saw plenty of iguanas, lizards and butterflies along each path. Both beaches were lovely, some of the nicest. Merci Beaucoup to both Melissa and the wonderful owners for letting us experience the nicest place we have ever been to (30 years of travel to the Carribbean and Central America) and the only place that stops the wanderlust, we will long to come back. We are so very grateful for this experience.

Stunning!
Villa Happy Days is such a wonderful property. The photos really don’t do it justice and we could not be happier with our choice of rentals and its location. Removed enough to provide absolute privacy but close enough to Grand Case, Happy Bay, and Friar’s Bay to give lots of options for shopping, dining, and beaching. The majority of our time was spent simply enjoying the property and the sunshine. Everything was clean, the kitchen was very well equipped (I was surprised how many useful gadgets I found!), washer & dryer were a nice bonus, and the huge wine fridge worked out well for overflow beer storage. Also, having the big gas grill, the two hot tubs, the infinity pool, the easy walk (5-10 minutes) to your choice of two breathtaking beaches, crazy beautiful sunsets, the list could go on. Thanks to Melissa who walked us through the reservation process. She was waiting for us with a starter supply of food and drinks when we arrived. She was accessible throughout our stay, although we had zero issues with the villa. We had such a great vacation. Thank you Melissa for helping us throughout the process. You are a delight, and hope to visit Villa Happy Days again soon!

PERFECT GETAWAY!
My wife and I stayed at the villa near the end of August 2014. We were amazed at the house and property. It was the perfect location and the house is completely clean and well maintained. The pictures represent the house very well but you have to see it in person to believe it. Happy Bay Beach is just a short 15 minute walk away and was never crowded by at any time of day in fact, some mornings, we were the only people on the beach until about 10:00 am. Melissa, the property manager, was great. She met us at the villa when we arrived and made sure we were comfortable and happy with the arrangements. She was always accessible and showed genuine concern that we were pleased. Which we were. Prior to our arrival, she kept us up to date constantly and made sure we knew what to expect. Thank you Melissa for making our stay such a pleasure! The island itself was beautiful and there was too much to see in just a week. The truth is the house was so wonderful we spent most of our time there except to run to nearby restaurants to get a bite to eat! We will definitely be returning. Chris and Tina

Amazing Vacation at Villa Happy Days!
My husband and I visited Villa Happy Days the end of April for nine days and I can honestly say we truly got to experience staying in paradise!! The photos of the villa are beautiful, but do not even compare to how incredible the house and property is in person. Let me start by saying that the completely unobstructed view of the Caribbean took our breaths away when we walked through the front door. The pool is a lot bigger in person that we thought – there is also a great poolside Jacuzzi as well as a separate hot tub in the garden area. We spent many evenings in the pool and hot tub watching the amazing sunsets and gazing at the stars. The property is on several levels and is covered with beautiful palm trees and flowers. The property is also very private – there are other houses in the development, but none are close enough to see into the backyard pool area. The inside of the house is also very clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is fully equipped with anything you could need (we prepared a few dinners at the house during our stay!). We felt extremely safe at the house – in order to get on the property you had to go through two electronic gates and there is a large wall all around the perimeter of the home. We were able to walk to Happy Bay Beach (which is the most beautiful beach on the island) as well as Friar’s beach. There is a dirt trail from the street by the house to both beaches – about a 10 minute walk down a rocky dirt road, so bring your sneakers! The walk is certainly worth the trip – beaches are great!! Make sure you have some of Danny’s BBQ at Happy Bay!! The house is also only a 5 min drive to Gran Case where we enjoyed some really fabulous dinners. There is no shortage of great French restaurants in the area! There is also a really good grocery store about 10 minutes from the house and they also had a great wine and beer selection too! We also wanted to thank the property manager, Melissa – she is an absolute pleasure to work with! This was our first trip to St. Martin and we had a million questions about the island and the house. Melissa was always very fast to respond to my emails and provided us with everything we needed to know in advance. They day we arrived at the house she also greeted us with wine, cheese, chocolates and other goodies to get our trip started. This vacation was truly amazing and we hope to have the opportunity to visit Villa Happy Days again soon!! Don’t miss the chance to stay in paradise!

Happy Days Villa = Happy Days Vacationing!
Happy Days Villa IS exactly as described. The sunsets were to die for and the infinity pool completed the view. You can NOT go wrong staying here. The villa is perfectly situated for privacy and you are on the best beaches on the island are steps away. Melissa was a pleasure to work with and was very accommodating. I would definitely return to this villa for a relaxing and private vacation. 5 stars!!! Sincerely, Dr. Thompson.

The villa made the vacation!
Villa Happy Days is everything captured by the photos and more. You feel on top of the world with the 180 degree views overlooking St Maarten, Anguilla, Happy Bay, etc. Most evenings we watched the sunset from the pool or hot tub…..spectacular. It’s an easy walk down to Happy Bay and Friar’s Bay. Melissa, the site manager, was helpful and efficient getting us scheduled, checked in and out, and answering our countless questions. We spent way more time in the villa than we had planned as it is just so relaxing and captivating. We will definitely be back. Thank you Happy Days for sharing this amazing space.

Great
The weather was fantastic. The views will keep our time at Happy Bay always on our mind! Thanks for your well appointed kitchen. We had many delicious meals right here at the villa! We hope to return some day!
