With its manicured gardens, excellent location on Plum Bay Beach, ocean views and private terrace, the Soleil Couchant is one of our top St. Martin vacation rentals for a family vacation or two couples traveling together. Known for its unique mix of European and Caribbean culture, as well as its fantastic beaches, agreeable climate and lively nightlife scene, the island of St. Martin is sure to impress.
You can relax in privacy on the villa’s large terrace thanks to its surrounding tropical vegetation that includes swaying palm trees. Here you’ll find plenty of lounge chairs surrounding a freeform pool that features a lovely rock structure (the pool also lights up for night swimming). Under the covered portion of the terrace you’ll find additional seating in the shade, as well as a dining table where you can enjoy an alfresco meal. When you’re finished, take in a tropical sunset while sipping a cocktail in the gazebo on the far edge of the terrace.
Originally built in 1980 and then renovated in the early ‘90s, the home has been beautifully maintained with white wooden ceilings, terracotta tiled flooring, charming furnishings and plenty of natural sunlight. The great room features an open-concept design with a large sitting area that steps out to the terrace through French doors, as well as a formal dining room and a fully equipped kitchen.
Comfortably sleeping four guests, the villa includes two king size bedrooms. Both rooms are equally spacious with vaulted ceilings, air conditioning, private en-suite bathrooms and access to the terrace through large sliding doors.
The villa is just steps away from the intimate Plum Bay Beach, which is a popular location for surfers. Here, you can sun tan on the white sand or enjoy a swim in the water. Grocery stores as well as restaurant options are located only 10 minutes away from the villa.

I\'m sure we\'ll be fine. - Kathy B., Pennsylvania, USA
