This stunning home located on the hillside of Terres Basses is one of our top St. Martin villas for larger groups of travelers, thanks to five bedrooms and spacious outdoor living spaces. The tropical island of St. Martin is dominated by bright reds, oranges and yellow trees and is well known for its eclectic nightlife, excellent diving and fine dining options.
The property’s expansive terrace ensures that even with 10 guests sharing the space, you will have no problem finding a great spot to relax. Grab one of the lounge chaises around the terrace with a cool drink and soak in the warm sun and calm trade winds. If you’re warm, go for a swim in the large pool that drops off dramatically over the hillside. Those seeking shade will adore the covered portion of the terrace that is outfitted with pillow-topped wicker furnishings, while a second seating area is located in the gazebo.
Inside, the home truly brings the outside in with huge sliding doors exposing the terrace. The living room features an eclectic mix of sophisticated and elegant furniture as well as a flatscreen TV, vaulted ceilings and terracotta tiled flooring. When you feel like a home-cooked meal, head into the large kitchen that comes fully equipped and offers a marble island that doubles as a breakfast bar.
A maximum of 10 guests can stay in the villa’s five bedrooms; each includes a king size bed and access to either the terrace or back gardens. All the rooms also boast air conditioning, a ceiling fan and private en-suite bathroom. Three of the suites are found in the main house while the remaining two are located in the cottage.
Restaurants, shops and markets of the capital city Marigot are located just 11 minutes away.

St martin is a wonderful island. Last year we rented Encore which was amazing with a professional staff who was available 24/7 for all our needs. This year we rented Mer Soliel which may not have been as luxurious however totally fit our family's needs with the indoor /outdoor setup! while the bedrooms and bathrooms were a little nicer at Encore, the bedrooms were certainly fine at Mer Soliel. Las year having all the bedroom situated around the pool was much nicer than having the bedrooms all spread out between the cottage and the downstairs this year, so if we could combine the 2 houses it will be absolutely perfect! Having said that we had an amazing week anyway! Eddie was our concierge once we arrived in St Martin. I cant say enough nice things about him! He was friendly, accommodating, helpful and always available for us! I hope next year he will be available for us as he was fantastic! Again, compare to last year, he was much more helpful than Isabella!

My family - 8 adults and 4 kids stayed at Mer Soleil March 20 - March 27. We had an amazing time. From the moment we entered the front gate, we knew we picked the right vacation house for our family. The house is perfectly laid out. The kitchen, dining room, several seating areas are all surrounding the pool that we spent all our time in. The bedrooms were positioned in such a way that each smaller family group got their own privacy. The house is positioned so that each night you have a stunning, uninterrupted view of the sunset. I don’t think we missed a night waving the sun goodbye. We cooked at the house a great deal and found the kitchen to be very well stocked with plenty of cooking supplies. The caretakers - gardener & housekeeper did an outstanding job each day. The house also has access to some of the beautiful and limited access beaches in Terres Basses. Our family loved our week in paradise and can’t wait to return next year! - Seema C., Georgia, USA

The house was beautiful. Shayne was excellent in helping to set everything up for us. We really liked Angus the caretaker and Brenda the housekeeper as well. Both were very friendly. Isabella the concierge for the house was nice but extremely difficult to understand. St Marteen was beautiful and we would definitely go back. Our next Caribbean island we will certainly use Luxury Retreats. - Jason R., North Carolina, USA
