Welcome to Le Mas des Sables, a Moroccan-style home located on the cliffs of Terres Basses, and one of our must-see St. Martin vacation rentals, thanks to its spectacular sea and bay views. Well known for its eclectic nightlife, white sandy beaches and world-class resorts, the island of St. Martin is a top tropical destination.
Spend some quiet time exploring the private tropical gardens and green space that surrounds the villa and leads down to the beach. You’ll discover a lovely terrace seamlessly integrated into the property’s wild surroundings, and complete with a mix of natural stone, light hardwood panels and swaying palm trees. Grab a cold drink and sit back on a lounge chaise while looking out over the coastline views. The free form pool sits on the edge of the terrace and is the perfect spot to cool down.
The interior of this two-level home is spacious and offers a distinct Moroccan influence with rich, wooden doorways, antique accents and red and white painted walls. An open-concept great room boasts tall ceilings with comfortable seating on red furniture surrounding a flatscreen TV as well as a dining area with a wooden table under a chandelier. Whip up a home-cooked meal in the spacious kitchen that comes equipped with modern appliances and antique furnishings and opens up to the outside.
The villa’s three bedrooms are located on the upper floor offering maximum privacy for up to six guests. Each bedroom has been uniquely decorated with different themes and features en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning. Two bedrooms feature a king size bed, while the third room includes twin beds.
When you’re ready for some time on the sand, the private exit on the villa’s property leads you down to Trou David where you’ll find excellent snorkeling and Baie Rouge Beach is only a 1-minute drive away. The capital, Marigot, is seven minutes from the villa and features many restaurants and craft markets.

The villa is absolutely fantastic! If i had a house near the beach, it would be exactly like this one! The rooms are very confortable, and the caretaker (Phillipe) was very friendly! This was my first experience renting a villa for my vacations, and after this week, i think i'll never stay in a hotel in my future vacations! I strongly recommend Les Mas Des Sables! And Luxury Retreats! - Carla P., , Brazil
Privacy on premier property

Beautiful open airy private villa. Quiet, well kept property. Felt at home immediately. The escort from the airport was a nice touch and proved to be a valuable tool to learn the directions to the villa. Working with Luxury Retreats was easy and painless. The caretaker was considerate and friendly. He did not intrude at anytime and left us to relax and enjoy the privacy. He promptly repaired a few minor pieces of chairs and windows that were cracked. He offered advice as to sightseeing and restaurants that were on point. No stress no worries was the atmosphere. - Erik P., ,

Beautiful beaches, great restaurants, and the perfect villa. We so enjoyed our view from the pool, the spacious bedrooms and bathrooms as well as the huge kitchen. The dual electric outlets were a huge plus for all the gadgets\" our kids travel with. Phillipe and the staff at Luxury Retreats did everything to make sure our stay was problem free. We have never stayed in a rental where the pictures on line were not as good as the real thing. Pictures don\'t do the property justice! There are porches everywhere, seating areas inside and out, beautiful pool with lounging furniture perfect for vacation naps and a gourmet kitchen fit for a chef. I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for the perfect vacation.\" - Julie M., Alabama, USA

The best escape we\'ve ever had
Left on 03/21/2013 for a stay in April 2012 | Debbie .
It is impossible to accurately describe the feeling we got the moment we walked in the front door of Le Mas des Sables after a long day of travel. Out the back was the Caribbean Sea and other islands and the view was breathtaking. Every morning we felt that same feeling waking up to the view. We felt so lucky we had another day at Le Mas des Sables. The decor was so perfect for the experience and the owners have thought of every detail. For a whole week, we forgot all our worries. Things I wish someone had told me: 1) bring bug spray, anti-itch ointment and anything else to keep mosquitoes at bay. We went at the end of April which is apparently the worst season for them; 2) bring those goofy water shoes because there is so much to explore right near the house but flip flops don\'t cut it on the rocks; 3) go to the Dutch side and shop at the Grand Markets there for substantially better products and prices; 4) rent snorkel gear for the week at a local shop for only $30/40 US. - Debbie L., New Hampshire, USA

Our Stay at Le Mas des Sables
Left on 05/19/2011 for a stay in March 2011 | A FlipKey verified reviewer
We enjoyed this lovely vacation villa very much. It had all the conveniences one could want. The view of the ocean is spectacular and the beach not far away for adults.\r\nThe pool was much enjoyed as was the shaded sitting area for reading or chatting.\r\nWe did have some very windy weather the first week of our stay, so did not do much sitting in the sun - probably wise in the long run as we did not suffer from sun burn.
