Feb 2020 family vacation
Villa Tamarind was great. The house was accurately depicted and we enjoyed that each bedroom had it’s own bathroom. The separate suite off the pool area was helpful for our friend traveling with us didn’t mind being away from our kids who woke up so early each morning! House was very well stocked and Celine had fantastic communication throughout the rental process and while we were there. We were greeted at the airport by one of Celine’s staff who was very friendly and escorted us to car rental place and then to the house so we wouldnt get lost. We had placed an order for food with a delivery service Celine recommended which made arriving to the house easy as we had snacks and things to prepare a first dinner and breakfast. The supermarkets on the island are great and convenient so don’t spend too much on the delivery service - prices are better at the supermarket directly. When we arrived Celine had provided some welcome beers and rum which was a welcome touch! The view is lovely and renting a car is crucial so you can navigate to the different beaches on the island. Celine’s recommendations were spot on. The key for us was finding beaches that didn’t have the cruise ship folks and we definitely found them. Note that the French side isn’t shy about going topless and some (typically older folks) nude on the beach. But that added to the local flavor. Food on the island is expensive but very tasty. Great beach side restaurants. Laid back atmosphere everywhere we went. Villa Tamarind is well located with access to any point you wish to visit on the island. Usually we reached the beaches within 30-45 minutes depending on traffic any way we drove.
Alexandra, thank you for the great review! We're glad you had such a wonderful vacation with your family and enjoyed Villa Tamarind thoroughly. We look forward to having you back!
Most Wonderful Family Vacation
We were there as a couple and then with our adult children and spouses. It was perfect in all respects. The welcome and package and people were outstanding. Alix did a wonderful Caribbean BBQ the first night that set the scene for every night of in home dinners and wonderful experiments with the wood fired oven! Perfectly appointed kitchen with everything you need for serving and entertaining. Cleanliness of property and amenities were over the top. The view is second to none. Perfect for four couples with and privacy and great communal space. Home owner was very attentive and very interested in our enjoyment of the villa. Security is superior with a guard and entrance gate. We rented a car but taxis are available. Owner helped us when we had a problem with our car. Outside Dining areas are not to be missed. We would lift this property and take it anywhere.! Hated to leave!
Hi Marvin, it was a pleasure hosting you and your family. We're glad you had such a wonderful time and loved our Villa and the views! We'll be happy to Welcome you back anytime!
We had an amazing time at Celine's villa. Excellent communication pre booking and throughout the entire trip. She's well versed in the island and gave us plenty of tips and recommendations in addition to offering options for extra villa services such as grocery stocking / personal chef. Her and her team took great care of us including meeting us at the airport as well as keeping us updated on where to avoid during the protests on the French side. We had some minor issues that had to be addressed and she sent her maintenance team right away. It's great to see a host that is so involved and cares about the experience of their guests!
The villa itself is clean and better than as pictured. We felt very safe as it's located in a gated community with 24/7 guard. Gorgeous views...we were able to catch sunrise and you can see all the way to St. Barts. We loved spending our days lounging outdoors, swimming in the pool, using the spin bike,..the house really has everything - outdoor fridge for easy access to drinks, board games, netflix, etc.! Lovely breezes outdoors, screened windows, wifi throughout, ample lighting...AC worked well in the bedrooms. Nice touches such as welcome gift/beverages.
We really found no need to be out and about much as the villa was such a wonderful escape for us.
For those that enjoy cooking you will truly appreciate how well equipped the kitchen is. We made our grocery runs at Carrefour and made use of the commercial grade dual fuel gas range...stand mixer & scale for baking...blender for smoothies..these were just a few of the kitchen toys on hand. Outdoors you have the charcoal grill and pizza oven..materials supplied for both. A lot of thought and care have been taken to make your stay as relaxing as possible...a mid week cleaning is included as well as plenty of supplies (well stocked pantry, paper supplies and dishwasher tablets etc).
We absolutely loved our stay at this villa and the service is top notch! Highly recommend!
Hi Andrea, thank you for the lovely review! We're glad you and your family enjoyed our beautiful Villa so much and appreciated the level of service we offer to all our guests. We look forward to welcoming you again!
Heaven - best VRBO experience in 6 years
In 6 years and 30+ rentals in 4 countries i (we) have never had such a thoughtful home owner and property manager.
We had a party of 7 (4 adults, 9,8 & 5 year olds) and making sure the house is safe, comfortable and well equipped is first priority.
The homeowner has created a book (and digital pdf) that details how things in the house work, best restaurant, bars, beaches, excursions etc. we basically had our research done for us.
The property manager helped us set up the provisions, managed the delivery and put them away for us. She then met us at the rental car location and escorted us back to the house and showed us around.
The home is beautiful main living and kitchen and dining great room. Master to the left, and the the right 1 bedroom with en-suite , 1 full bath and 3rd bedroom. There is another full bed and bath accessible from the outside only which was great to have the adults separated and the kids in the middle rooms. But that patio and pool... the pictures don’t do it justice. You can see st Bart’s easily and there is a constant breeze which cools the main room of the house.
The AC in the bed rooms is cold, separate towels for the beach & showering. She had coolers & umbrellas for us. Fantastic water pressure, never ran out of hot water even though i was last to shower.
There are plenty of covered and uncovered outdoor spaces, bbq grill and a wood fired pizza oven which we used several times.
We would all go back in a heart beat... the home was wonderful but the service level, attention to detail, pool and house cleaning 2x in 7 days, knowing exactly what spices were there, full sized washer, Dryer and Dishwasher...priceless.
And on the very last day the owner made a point to come see us off, not to rush us out but to make sure we liked / didn’t have any questions. Since we had a later flight but had all of our bags we wanted a safe / secure place to go that was kid friendly. She threw out several awesome places which we enjoyed.
You will not be disappointed
Quiet, lush, beautiful, comfortable, great for families or for couples...
Thank you so much Amish. It was a delight having you stay with us. We are so glad you enjoyed all the villa has to offer. We hope to have you return next season!
What an AMAZING Villa! My group of 7 couldn’t have picked a better spot to stay! Incredible location, 5 Star views, very clean and the entire staff from the owners, property manager, pool maintenance and maid service were exceptionally nice and helpful! We are so sad to be leaving but will 100% be booking this Villa again in the near future.
Hi Brandon, it was a pleasure to host you and your family. We always aim for our guests to have a memorable vacation and to help them build memories. We're glad we could contribute to you having such a pleasant stay. We'll be happy to welcome you back anytime!
Great place to stay.
Had a wonderful week at the house. Sam was so helpful with everything. Check in, check out were easy. The pool was wonderful. We spent hours basking in the sun and watching sail boats go by.
Thanks for the awesome review, Fawn! We're glad you thoroughly enjoyed the house and the gorgeous views. We look forward welcoming you back!
Our property is located in the Tamarind Hill Estates, close to Dawn beach Estates and Oyster Pond. It is situated on a hill, which allows for amazing views of the Caribbean Sea and Saint Barts in the distance.
