Cupecoy Bay, Sint Maarten, St Martin / St Maarten
Farniente is a contemporary villa at the edge of the sea located in the private community of Shore Point right on the French/Dutch Border. This luxurious gated enclave is like a stylish gleaming white village on a sunny Greek island. The entrance to Farniente is framed by lush tropical plantings and classic white columns. The front door opens to the dramatic descending marble staircase that transports you to the main living area and a stunning view of the blue sky, Caribbean Sea and outer islands.
The contemporary interiors flow through stunning glass and wood sliding doors right onto a spacious covered travertine terrace and deck.

The villa was nice, but for the price you pay for this, certain things should've been better. The bottom sheet on my bed continually came off, they need to get sheets that fit the beds properly. The deck furniture with cushions was very nice, but the lounge chairs you lay out in were very old and uncomfortable, they need to...

Thank you Farniente for a vacation to St. Maarten that we won't soon forget. The house was absolutely beautiful and met our expectations perfectly. The only regret is that we didn't have more time to enjoy it; we stayed a week and traveled around the entire island. The staff was very friendly, accommodating and willing to help with any questions...
