Villa Mapai, Cul de Sac, St Martin. 

Villa Mapai offers visitors to St. Martin a remarkable location along the northeastern coastal region on the French side of the island. Gazing out at charming Pinel Island and Petite Cleff, it is part of the Terrasse de Cul de Sac community and is a remarkable, six-bedroom property that is ideal for those who want to make the most of an oceanfront setting. Set only steps from the ocean, it is supplied with amenities that make it a perfect choice for those eager to savor water sports like kayaking, swimming, and exploring. It has a private dock and beachfront along with boat rentals and a supply of kayaks to enjoy. It has a lawn for sunbathing, too.

A beautifully and elegantly designed property, it features a central pool terrace that frames the stunning scenery that surrounds the entire property. The pool terrace guides the eye to the islands nearby and features an enormous sun deck furnished generously with oversized sun chairs and lounges. It also features full-sized, canopied sunbeds, and an array of upper and lower-level sun decks along with stairs to the beach. It backs up to the stylish outdoor spaces tucked beneath the expansive verandah. At one end of the home is a massive outdoor lounge with banquette sofas and non-stop views. Nearby is a gorgeous alfresco dining suite, which is near the breakfast bar that opens into the gourmet kitchen inside.

Indoors, the great room features a mostly white and natural wood palette accented by bursts of color and airy design. The high ceilings and oversized floor-to-ceiling doors bring in the sea breezes and sea views. The living room offers a banquette sofa around the entertainment system, and this space opens into the deluxe kitchen with its premium appliances and gear.

The five-bedroom home features four king-sized suites, and each offers a private terrace, an ensuite bath, a premium entertainment system, and a working or sitting area to enjoy. There is also a charming bunk room with a terrace and bath.

Ideal for a large family gathering or group of travelers eager to savor a bit of luxury, the Villa Mapai is a perfect destination. Whether it is intended to serve as a base for a wider exploration of St. Martin or it is the only destination, it is sure to delight all who visit. With its watersports, comfortable spaces, and premium amenities, it is going to become a fast favorite whether a visit is only a short one or an extended one. 

Can be rented as a 4-5 or a 6-bedroom villa!

What a truly stunning villa. The layout is perfect for a big group, with privacy, yet large comfortable common areas. The indoor outdoor space and the infinity pool are incredible. We traveled all around the island and without a doubt Cul de Sac has the best views. Proximity to Anse Marcel, Grand Case and Pinel Island are an added bonus. Thiabaud will make your stay extra special, helping with any day to day requests. Our group of 9 was ages 7-70 and there was something for everyone. We hope to go back one day.

The house is beautiful and very well maintained. The view is unsurpassed. Beautiful grounds, dock, and pool. It was great to be able to kayak to Pinel Island. Thibault, the concierge, made the trip memorable and gave us a level of service I have never before experienced. He arranged rides, taxis, dinner reservations upon request, and even deliveries to the house. He was always available for help. We would definitely book again!

Another member of our family communicated with St. Martin Blue, but everything seemed to be easy and smooth.

Nadine Jul, 2023

The house was beautiful. Very impressed by the attention to detail. For example, speaker system, every kitchen utensil you would need, hand soap in bathroom, and bathroom spray. All the comforts of home and so much more. I would definitely return.

We stayed with a family of 12 at Villa Mapai in July 2022. The villa is truly amazing, spacious, and decorated very nicely. The pool is great, and everybody was hanging out there and having fun. The canoes were great for paddling to Pinel Island and making some tours in the bay. Leonard and Max welcomed us all and were terrific at working with us. They organized transportation, replied to questions with the speed of lightning, a late checkout, and helped in general make our stay unforgettable.

A great organization, they were very flexible as we needed to postpone our trip twice due to the pandemic. Leonard and Max were fabulous hosts, and I would recommend St Martin Blue to anyone!

Michael May, 2022

Villa Mapai was most definitely the nicest villa we have rented thus far. It was equipped with all the necessities and much more. Housekeeping did a terrific job keeping it spotless. Our concierge, Tribaud Martin was awesome and always there for anything we needed. The villa itself was amazing with the most beautiful views you could want. It was equipped with 5 kayaks and a paddleboard which we used daily to visit Pinel Island. The floorplan of Villa Mapai was perfect with its true indoor/outdoor living spaces and views. Highly recommend! A+++++

St. Martin Blue was the ultimate vacation villa management company. They handled everything for us from COVID travel requirements, airport pickup, housekeeping, rental car delivery and so much more. Housekeeping kept the villa spotless. The villa concierge, Thibaud Martin was fantastic. He was always just a call or text away from handling anything we needed from resturant/beach bar recommendations to anything we needed. 5 Star concierge and villa management company. St. Martin Blue and Thibaud really set the bar higher.

Margaret Apr, 2022

The house was fabulous. It was very clean and new. The rooms and bathrooms were great and the deck and outdoor living space was amazing. You can kayak five minutes to a little island with beautiful clear water and small little beach or ten minute kayak to pinel island. It is a five to ten minute drive to the restaurants of Grand Case, a five minute drive to orient beach and those restaurants, and a three minute drive to Super U and a fabulous french bakery. Everything in the house was superb. Thibaud, the manager, and the housekeeping staff were great too. I highly recommend this house. We had three families (2 kids and 2 adults each).

Great company to work with. They were very responsive.

Greg Apr, 2022

Great villa on the ocean. Clean. Well appointed. Beautiful pool. 6 great bedrooms all en suite baths. On the ocean, and easy Kayak to Pinel Island for first class beach.
Great service too. Rental cars delivered to villa. Daily maid service. And villa manager’s restaurant recommendations and reservation help was impeccable. Also brought a nurse over in second to last day for mandatory Covid tests for re-entry to US. Fabulous trip

"I would like to thank you for the wonderful vacation we had on St Martin in Le Caprice. Rob, I already mentioned this to Kate, thanks for your advice which villa to rent. I did not understand what you meant by rocks when you send the email but was happy we followed your advice for the sandy beach! House was fantastic (although some minor things needed repairing) and staff was nice and professional. Again we had a splendid week with the family for which I thank the both of you. "
