It is situated in one of the most beautiful locations in the Caribbean. Tucked away in an exclusive setting in Marigot Bay, it looks out over lush green forest and the bright aqua blue of the Caribbean sea. The house is a 15 minute walk from the main Marigot marina and neighboring La Bas beach, and only a 5 minute stroll down to the secluded cove of Trou Roland.

There are several new reviews.The White Turtle is a two bedroom villa with a private pool. It is situated in one of the most beautiful locations in the Caribbean. Tucked away in an exclusive setting in Marigot Bay, it looks out over lush green forest and the bright aqua blue of the Caribbean sea. The house is a 15 minute walk from the main Marigot marina and neighboring La Bas beach, and only a 5 minute stroll down to the secluded cove of Trou Roland. The villa is reached via a quiet road from the bay, shared with a small number of other private residences and rental properties. The entire first floor of the White Turtle is designed to create an indoor/outdoor entertaining space, to maximize the stunning sea views from the wrap around terrace. The high ceilings/ air conditioning and large sail fans ensure a cool relaxing interior, even during the heat of the Caribbean midday sun. Folding glass doors open out from the lounge area onto a wide veranda, perfect for enjoying an evening sunset cocktail gazing out at the ocean. Walk along the terrace, overlooking the azure blue swimming pool, and watch the local finches land beside you and chatter for attention. The bedrooms are located downstairs. The master bedroom redefines luxury, with space to spare. Stretch out on the American super king size four poster bed, and let yourself unwind on super soft 400 thread count designer Egyptian cotton bedlinen, supported by the deluxe memory foam mattress. Clean white walls, the cool tiled floor, air conditioning and a large ceiling sail fan create a fresh airy feel,.Light streams in through the floor to ceiling windows and glass doors that open onto a private garden balcony. Original wall art, created for the White Turtle, coordinates with the aqua color scheme, and complements the dark wood furniture. The large adjoining walk-in closet contains a drinks fridge and guest safe. The versatile spacious second bedroom can be configured as either one King size or two single beds, Two large closets provide plenty of space for clothing and accessories. Double glass doors open onto a small balcony, from which steps lead down to the main garden and to the pool deck. The large fully tiled bathroom is a place to relax, with a walk in rainfall shower, separate full length soaking tub, and hand basin topped with a well lit mirror. Luxurious white deep pile cotton bath and hand towels are provided. There is a separate toilet located next to the bathroom and another upstairs.Continue through the full bath outdoors to an outdoor shower with a view. Prior to our recent purchase of the Turtle a kitten was born on the property who lives at the villa…outside…to this day. You might say we inherited “Patsy” with the purchase of the property and did not have the heart to change that arrangement. She is a small, very sweet cat that most guests over the years have enjoyed as part of the villa’s atmosphere. She also serves several functions inherent to the island. Our personal experience with Patsy has been that she for the most part is hardly noticed and knows with a clap of the hands to remain that way. In fact my wife is allergic to cats and Patsy does not bother her at all. She does of course appreciate a meal, food provide by us. Thank you very much for taking the time to view our property. Please contact us with any questions you may have.More

Hi Danny, Thank you for your feedback. Firstly the property is far from a cheap build, the house is largely constructed using concrete rather than timber which is obviously a lot more robust. We have been congratulated on the roof design which is the closest...More

About the neighborhood
A small piece of paradise, tucked away from the main tourist centers of the island, but yet still able to offer everything that you could wish to enjoy the holiday of a lifetime. Yes – Marigot is a great base to explore the island from – but if you want to chill out and take in the Caribbean way of life, then there’s no need to look any further.
How to get there
We recommend taking a taxi or car service to the house. Car rental companies will drop off the car at the villa. Once a reservation is made we will recommend local car services and rental companies.
