Just returned home from a fantastic 10 night stay at the beautiful Le Papillion penthouse. Everything was perfect!

We arrived at the villa and we were greeted by Simona, our fabulous host and property manager. She gave us a tour of the property, showed us how to work all the windows, appliances, doors, locks, air conditioning system (separate settings for each room) and gave us a brief "lay of the land.

The property is located right on Simpson Bay and in my opinion, the nicest stretch of beach on Simpson Bay. Beautiful crystal clear water at your feet. Le Papillion rest inside a gated wall and includes private parking. The penthouse villa boasts a very modern contemporary design with lots of open space and tons of windows and sliding glass doors which really give the feeling of being outdoors and "on the water". For convenience the property has a good size elevator that makes carrying groceries and or luggage up and down a breeze.

We were a family of 4 adults and two children (12 & 14). Each of us had our own spacious bedrooms (3 in total) each equipped with large private bathrooms with double sinks and large tiled showers. Each bathroom was fully stocked with toilet paper, organic shampoo, and towels. Lorraine, the housekeeper came to restock, clean and replenish every other day and she was a delight!

We spent several days just hanging out in front of the villa because of the beauty and convenience of where we were. There were always plenty of beach lounge chairs, upright chairs, beach towels, noodles and tubes to float on and a convenient outdoor shower to hose off sand before heading back inside.

We did rent a car, but you don't need too. This was our second time visiting SXM in ten years, so we wanted and did quite a bit of exploring and driving around the island. We visited several beaches such as Maho, Mullet Bay, Orient, Friar's Bay, Gallon and Happy Bay (our favorite). We also spent half a day zip lining with our kids at Loterie farm and swimming in their fresh water pool. The kids loved it. We're not big shoppers, but we spent a little time in Philipsburg walking the strip and also spent half a day at WISP, the outdoor waterpark/ jungle gym...another great activity for the kids.

Eats...We had many great nights eating in at Le Papillion in their well equipped kitchen. Plenty of plates, bowels, glasses, cutlery, pots, pans, blender, coffee...etc. We also had some great dinners out in Simpson Bay, Grand Case, Philipsburg and Anse Marcel.

The views from the multiple decks of this villa are pure picturesque! We spent many a night in the roof top hot tub watching planes land and take off. Truly spectacular views and space.

Simona and her crew were incredibly responsive and excellent to work with. The property is very modern, clean and you can tell, well cared for!

Thank you for such a warm and memorable vacation! We look forward to coming back soon!

“Stunning Views & Ambiance”
Reviewed March 3, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

The place is even more beautiful than the pictures. There were 3 couples that shared a wonderful vacation at La Papillion . It was so spacious, comfortable and with fantastic views that we all enjoyed. We enjoyed many dinners using the modern kitchen & elegant dining room. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms well designed. We spent much of our time on the third floor enjoying the hot tub, sunshine and the 360 view of Simpson Bay or the beach which was right outside our door. Simone met us & showed us around the condo and answered any questions we had for her. It is a wonderful penthouse and we highly recommend it! We hope to stay there again in the near future.

Went with my wife and 3 boys for 7 days and could not ask for a better villa.
New construction, amazing views of beach and island. Rooftop Hot Tub. New Years 2017 we could see almost all the fireworks on the entire island. This was our 2nd time in SXM in 13 months as we stayed just down the beach at Aqualina in 2015.

The beach is steps from the property and it is the best beach sand along the entire Simpson Bay Beach.

This is an expensive place but well worth it.

100%

Go there..........you will not be disappointed.

Great place for two couples. Close to lots of restaurants and great beaches. Condo had everything we needed and expected. Building was secure & private, had reserved parking space. Cleaning lady came every other day. Would recommend. Hard to top the location and unit.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property? Overall condition of the property

My extended family of 8 adults and 1 child just came back from our trip to St Marteen. The condo was exactly how the picture portrayed it to be... Just amazing! I was skeptical at first because there were no reviews for this condo but after the trip I'm glad I took the leap of faith. The each room had a king sized bed and in the master room it had a sofa bed as well. The plates, cups and silverware were very nice. Basic needs for cooking such as seasonings, pots, pans and etc were all available. The beach is literally foot steps away! There was a open shower to clean up before going back into the condo which was very nice. In the master room you can hear the waves come in and out.. So nice! The air plane sounds really did not bother me inside (the building is sound proofed) or outside the condo. In the evening we used the jacuzzi on the roof top and saw the sun set and you can also see air planes lift off right before your eyes! Everything in the condo was very new and very modern, just how I like it! I would highly recommend this condo!
