My husband, mother and I stayed at this beautiful villa May 16-26, 2013. The drive to the villa was daunting, at first, but we quickly got used to it. The house was very nice with a beautiful kitchen and wonderful master bedroom and bathroom. The place was hot when we first arrived so next time we will request that the air be turned on before we get there. My mother had one of the bedrooms upstairs and especially enjoyed her private balcony.
The outside was gorgeous but I agree with the previous comment about the pool. You step off of the last step and the water is over your head. Should be marked for safety reasons. Kanesha took great care in the housekeeping and was very accommodating. We did not encounter any dogs but were annoyed with the cats. They were the only downside to our stay.
We look forward to returning next year. Strongy recommend this villa.
"Fantastic villa with a majestic and a few minor caveats"

For my wife and I's 10th anniversary, I chose St Maarten. Beautiful island with dozens of unique and beautiful beaches(we hit 9 in 7 days). Getting around the island is easy enough. The drive up to villa was fun.
The villa is amazing. It was just the two of us, but this villa will easily accomodate 8+. The entire upstairs went unused. The kitchen was far larger than the pictures let on. Dining room was nice, but only used for some board games, since we chose to dine poolside. The family room was largely unused as well, but since we are from Louisville, it was nice to have DirecTV to catch the Kentucky Derby. The master bed is the comfiest bed we've ever slept on.
The pool is beautiful and refreshing during the day, but quite chilly(not heated) once the sun sets. It took some getting used to. That cut down on the midnight swims. Is the Mrs. expecting to cut loose and catch some rays sans tan lines? Not at this "private" pool. What the photos don't show are the villa being built next door. The workers have a great view of all pool activities during the day. Not a recipe for a timid wife.
Our plane arrived a couple hours late so it was dark by the time we checked in. Not a big deal, we grabbed a Busby's pizza (Philly cheese, A+) and hung at the pool. I proceeded to walk down the steps into the pool and proceeded [unexpectedly] to go right under. That got a good laugh out of both of us. The entire pool is about 8' deep, so don't expect to stand around the pool admiring the view of St. Barts.
Other downsides; A washer/dryer is listed as an amenity but they must be behind a locked door. We were told the maid could do laundry at $10 a load. Pass. Every morning we were treated to a couple dogs poolside. Unwanted but tolerable. Not so tolerable are the 3 noisy cats hanging out by the grill and sleeping on the patio table.
These are all minor complaints that wouldn't keep us from renting again, but just felt these things should be noted for future vacationers.

The summer winds villa is a little taste of paradise. Every room in the villa itself is gorgeously decorated, and kept clean and beautiful by a woman who cleans five days a week. The beds are so comfortable, the views from every room are stunning, and the outdoor area is unparalleled by anything we've seen before. The fully stocked kitchen has everything one could possibly need. The pool area overlooks the crystal clear ocean, with couches and chairs underneath a gazebo a few feet away, and chaise lounges next to the pool. The waves can be heard softly in the background. Overall, a great place to enjoy a vacation.
