Rotem from New York, NY
Luxurious Caribbean stay
This has been our second visit to Villa Rainbow (previous one was on December 2009, originally set to celebrate my partner's 30th birthday). We've decided to come back here after traveling to other destinations in Mexico and the Caribbean in the 2 years following our first visit, but every time we found ourselves comparing these sites to Villa Rainbow and St. Martin. No site we've been at has reached our level of expectation after staying at Villa Rainbow. This is the most luxurious, friendly, relaxing vacation that we've experienced at this price range.
Chris runs the villa with the highest level of courtesy and sensitivity to details. Any question we or the other guests may have had was answered thoroughly: what beaches to visit, where to eat, information about activities, where to shop - all was fully detailed, including maps and clear instructions. Even when we needed to see a doctor on the island Chris called in for us to set an appointment.
The villa itself seats at a marvelous spot, with beautiful views, especially for sunset - when Chris brings out wine, snacks and home-made rum drinks, and there's a chance to meet Chris' lovely partner - Jean Louis - and have conversations with everyone that's around.
The drive up to the villa is steep on unpaved roads, and on both times we've rented a high 4WD car, though our next door neighbors settled for a simple economy size car and were just fine. Depends on which beach you're going to (our favorite was 'Happy Bay' - ask Chris for instructions), the drive down takes 10-20 minutes. You can stop by at the supermarket on the way there or back to stock up with drinks, cheese, fresh baguette and some snacks. If you must feel the water right when you wake up you can always jump in the beautiful pool up at the villa. Breakfast always includes fresh bread and pastries that Chris brings in daily, fruit, yogurt, cheese and juice, tea and coffee. WiFi is available at the main house, which makes you crawl out of your comfortable room and interact with the other guests. On both our visits, we spent our time at the beaches and having dinners out with our next door neighbors - everyone seem to be in a very friendly state of mind once they get to this place, and the atmosphere is always friendly and welcoming. The beds are huge and the showers are spacious and beautiful.
I can't speak more highly of Villa Rainbow - after this visit we set up our minds not to bother and explore other destinations in the Caribbean anymore, as we seem to have found our number one spot right on the first hit. We will definitely come back here for all of our future beach vacations.
