Happy Bay, St.Martin - 6 bedroom villa
Villa Ocean 5 - the Hidden Jewel of Happy Bay
Ocean 5 sits high on the slopes of Mont Choisy, an exclusive ocean view neighborhood, on the northern coastline of French St. Martin and enjoys an unobstructed panorama of the Caribbean Sea with the neighboring island of Anguilla in the distance and just below the beaches of Friar’s Bay and Happy Bay. The contemporary and asymmetrical lines of the residence follow the slope of the land and offer beautiful ocean views from each of the 3 levels, from the expansive open-plan living area and all six bedrooms.
A striking blue ocean vista awaits you as soon as you step through the main entrance of the ground floor into a light-filled living space with large glass sliding doors stretching the entire length of the room and opening out to a large pool and flower-lined sun terrace. Calming aquatints and natural wood accents feature throughout the house. A large dining table takes center stage of the living area. A very well-equipped and beautiful light wood kitchen makes for convivial mealtimes for large families or groups of friends. There are comfortable seating areas both within the air-conditioned living room and also in the lounge area of the outside covered terrace, just to the right of the pool. The terraced gazebo makes for an ideal spot for sunset lounging. There is a sunken living area with a TV, just off to the right of the main living space.
This ground floor level also houses two bedrooms: the master suite with a very large walk-in closet and a spacious bathroom with a raised tub and a second bedroom with a bathroom with access in the hallway. Both bedrooms have a terrace with ocean view.
Overlooking the living room, the upper mezzanine level offers a fitness room and houses the third bedroom with en-suite bath and a private rooftop terrace with a sunbed.
Two staircases descending from the pool terrace lead you to the three remaining bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own terrace with an ocean view and an en-suite bathroom with an open shower. Two of the bedrooms are connected by a door which is ideal for families with young children.
Ocean 5 is within walking distance of the beautiful natural beach of Happy Bay and a short drive to the charming seafront village of Grand Case; the French side’s gourmet destination and home to some of the best restaurants on the island. The popular beach bars, restaurants and water sports of Orient Bay are just a 15 minutes drive away and Friar’s Bay with two beach restaurants is just down the road.
