“Minutes to Beach....very nice.”
Reviewed 10 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Recently, my family along with close friends of ours travelled to St. Maartens to Orient Bay. We stayed at Villa Mandala for one week and extremely enjiyed our well kepted and updated villa. Natacha the owner was there to meet us upon arrival with our keys and gave us a small tour. There are 5 bedrooms 3 with queen beds and 2 with twin beds which only kids can sleep in. They are small. Perfect for families travelling with small children. Two bedrooms are downstairs outside on pool level. you can not access them from inside the house. The other three bedrooms are in house. There is a large porch with large table that canseet up to 10 people for dinners and entertaining. We enjoyed all our meals when staying at the Villa for non restaurant nights. The kitchen is updated with a gas stove as well nas a full size fridge. There is also a dishwasher which was handy for saving time to do other things lijke go to the beach. The pool is clean and spacious for kids to play and adults to chill.Convient outdoor shower when you have just come from the beach to rinse off and a gate to villa to help with privacy. The approximate time to get to beach from Villa is lkess than 10 min. Very easy. There is also a small outdoor square consisting of 4-5 restaurants ranging from French cuisine to Italian to fusions. LePimento was very good and carries a very large menu. Orient Beach was very nice and there is a charge for beach chair and umbrella rentals for the day. Try to wager a deal with places running rentals. Sometimes they will work something out with you and maybe even throw a free beverage in with the deal. Sand is like brown sugar, water is turquoise and warm. We enjoyed travelling everyday in our car rental because everything was within a 20 min drive. Marigot, Grand Case and Philipsburg. We had a wonderful time. Thank You Natacha!

“Great villa”
Reviewed 5 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Came here with a group of classmates (graduate school) for spring break. Loved that it was near Orient Beach. The rooms were nice but fair warning the twin rooms are def. for kids. The villa was really nice, high end, and spacious. Good for 6 adults (2 per bed).

“Perfect house in an ideal location”

My family and I just returned from our week long vacation in St. Martin and we are so pleased that we chose to stay at Villa Mandala. The house was very clean, well maintained and had all the amenities we could ask for. We were six adults, one teenager and three children and we had plenty of room in the house and surrounding pool area that we never felt too crowded. All the rooms are beautifully decorated and the house looks like it has just been completely updated. The location of the house is perfect as well. It is about a 5 minute walk to Orient Beach and a 5 minute drive to a super kid friendly beach with great snorkeling. The small village at Orient Beach has a bakery, small grocery store, pharmacy, ice cream shop and several really good restaurants and bars. We walked down to the bakery every morning to get fresh bread and croissants which were delicious. Natacha was a pleasure to meet and she was very easy to communicate with during our planning. If we plan another visit to St. Martin I would not hesitate to stay at Villa Mandala again. Thanks Natacha for a fantastic week!!!!
