“The Best Ever”

We could not have asked for more. We were with another couple that had never been to St. Maarten and we all hated to leave. Great location, beautiful villa, the fridge was stocked with drinks and snacks when we arrived (VERY UNUSUAL) and there was everything we needed in the villa for our 10 day stay. It was everything advertised and more. Paul, the owner was great to deal with.
We have stayed at many places in St. Maarten over the years and this was the absolute BEST! I It is just is not possible to say enough good things about Carisma.
THANKS PAUL AND CARMEN ! !

“Beautiful decor, comfortable, convenient, awesome location, lovely owners”
Reviewed November 3, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed your villa and all of its amenities and especially the personal care provided by both of you. It was appreciated. The decor is beautiful and provides wonderful comfort and convenience and everything you could possibly wish for in a beautiful seaside location. We will certainly be recommending Villa Carisma to our friends who travel in the Caribbean and when we travel again to St. Martin we would not wish to stay any other place.

“Great villa in perfect area”
Reviewed October 28, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Had a wonderful time at Villa Carisma for our honeymoon. Doesn't get get much better than a private villa with jacuzzi pool right on the beach! Beautifully decorated and fully stocked with everything you need. We will definitely be repeat renters.

“Exeptional vacation in St.Maartin”

We just came back from a week vacation in St. Maartin. This condo is exceptional. 2 spacious bedrooms and baths, beautiful kitchen with everything you can possibly need during the stay. When we arrived we were greeted by Barry and Paula, they explained everything and gave us a cellphone just in case we would need anything else.The fridge was stocked up with cold drinks and snacks. Great wine and beer. Thank you very much, after 8 hrs of traveling this was absolutely wonderful. The condo is beautiful, location couldn’t be better. Paul and Carmen have thought about everything what you may need to make you stay great. The view is breathtaking. Walking out of the living room you see the beautiful ocean. No crowd, this piece of paradise is just for you.There are many restaurants in the walking distance, however, in my opinion car rental is a right thing to do. We have used Hertz (if anybody would ask), no problems. We have visited french side as well. Nice restaurants, 30 min travel by car. Thank you again, we will keep you in mind for our future travel plans . Yes, I would highly recommend this beautiful condo. Damian, Barbara and Joanne June 11-18, 2016

Everything about our stay was perfect. Carisma is spacious, clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated and has all the comforts of home. The photos accurately depict the furnishings and amenities, but the serene luxury needs to be experienced. The spacious patio looks out over the sparkling Caribbean; just walk down the stairs and you are on the beach. The bedrooms are comfortable, roomy and air conditioned. They are separated from the other living areas and have their own bathrooms, ensuring privacy. There is Wi-Fi, cable television, washer dryer, grill and a telephone. Absolutely everything we needed or wanted was available. Our hosts were friendly and accommodating, and gave us lots of tips for places to visit, eat, etc. Staying at Carisma made this a dream vacation.

My three friends and I stayed at Carisma for a long weekend, and we could not say more about the experience we had. Paul and Carmen were the loveliest and most helpful hosts, and their villa is superb. The pictures on the website are accurate but Carisma, in reality, is so much more. It is beautifully updated and maintained, it is very spacious, and there is no detail left undone. Obviously, Paul and Carmen take great pride in Carisma, and it shows. In short, Carisma is/has:

-perfectly maintained
-luxurious
-a full kitchen with every pot/plate/glasses/flatware/appliance etc., you could ever need
-2 beautiful and comfortable bedrooms and 2 adjoining bathrooms
-full wifi/phone/tv access (don't watch tv in SXM!)
-parking space
-stunning patio with jacuzzi tub, lounge chairs, mood lighting ...and the VIEW!!!
-direct ocean access

Paul and Carmen enthusiastically greeted us, showed us the ropes, gave us excellent island recommendations (even making a dinner reservation for us at a delightful Thai restaurant), and they also generously gifted us wine/beer as a welcome - along with a pineapple!

The entire weekend was a joy, and we can't wait to return. A million thumbs up.

The condo is in a wonderful and quiet location on a secluded beach. The bedrooms are separated and have their own bathrooms. The kitchen is well appointed with new dishes and flatware. But the best is when you step out the living room to the expansive terrace– all you see are the gentle waves of the turquoise Caribbean right in front of you. The terrace faces southwest, giving you gorgeous sunsets. There’s plenty of sun and they’ve allowed for shade as well– which is great if you like reading outside all afternoon like I do. We’ll be back!
