This will always be our most cherished vacation as a family, in large part due to this wonderful property and the very warm welcome of our hosts. From the moment we were met and greeted at the airport until we were dropped off there two weeks later, we felt like we truly were at a home away from home -- which is not an easy feat with a 6 year old little guy and a teenage girl in tow. The property is fantastic and very much allows you and your family to not feel like you are living out of a suitcase. The house is very well-furnished, very clean, has everything you need to stay even for as long as we did. My husband and I had spent several months researching where to stay on the island, as it was new to us, and as it turned out, not in vain. After seeing much of the island, we were convinced that we had found the absolute best location on the island (Orient Beach), and what is probably the best location on Orient Beach itself. The beach is literally a two-minute walk from the condo, walking leisurely. The beach during our stay was spectacular in every way -- we have never seen such pristine and beautifully-colored water anywhere in the Caribbean. There is a free public area right next to a strip of clubs, which are all great. There is a cute little plaza with a handful of really good (somewhat expensive) restaurants within a 5-minute walk, a couple more slightly beyond that area. The area is populated and the business are run mostly by very nice and welcoming French ex-pats, which only contributes to the cultural feel of staying on the French side. The Dutch side is fun to visit, but, let's just say we are very grateful we didn't end up finging a place to stay there. It is very commercial, has a Vegas feel to it, excessively touristy and is teeming with time-share agents, who are quite possibly the most obnoxious people in this world. Whatever they offer you -- say NO and run! Anyway, to sum up, Moune and Dominique are very warm yet professional and competent landlords, and just seem like really wonderful people. Furthermore, they turned out to be very gracious and understanding hosts, as I had the awful misfortune of accidentally knocking down one of their charming and tasteful wall decorations, which was very upsetting and mortifying for me, but they were very understanding and reassuring, for which we are very grateful. My husband and I plan to come back without the kids and stay at one of Moune and Dominique's properties.

The apartment was very clean, fully equipped with lots of extras. It matched the photos on line perfectly. Mourne, our host, was a delight and very helpful, with advice on the area, things to do and lived very locally for any assistance needed. Dominique, her husband, arranged a good value car rental for us which was delivered to the apartment. The car fitted our needs and was in very good condition. He was a pleasure to deal with . The apartment is fully equipped with loads of extras, extremely comfortable and stylish. The bed and lounge were both very comfortable and the patio is spacious with loads of furniture. The kitchen has everything you need including all modern conveniences. The stunning Orient Bay beach is less than a 2 minute walk. The Village restaurants are a 3 minutes walk, giving you a good variety of quality food. Mourne can arrange a deal for the beach chairs and lunch. One word of warning is there are no ATMs in Orient Bay. We would highly recommend this apartment for anybody except those with a mobility problem as it is on two levels.

Cote Mer is a wonderful condo, with all the amenities! It couldn't be more perfectly situated to the beach, which is practically in your back yard. Moune, the owner, is very pleasant and helpful and provided informative hints about the island!! This was our 1st time in SXM and we are already planning our next visit. We will definitely be looking to stay in one of Moune's properties again!!

Cote Chic is a fantastic unit to stay in. Very comfortable and extremely clean and well kept. Moune and Dominique are terrific hosts and make sure your stay is very enjoyable. Either helping with a transportation, rental car or restaurants and activities to do, they are a wealth of information. The unit has a nice kitchen, perfect for cooking a quick meal between beach time or after a sight seeing or shopping adventure. The balcony off the Master Bedroom is about the greatest place on earth! So comfortable and such a beautiful view of the pool and ocean in the background. You could spend all day there, just relaxing. All the furnishings are perfect for the unit and give a nice clean modern appearance to it. We will be back many more times and you can't go wrong staying in any of Moune's units.

We were picked up on time and it was easy to find them. While driving back to the condo, Moune was great, asked us about how many times we've been to the island and let us know about some other places to go. The unit is in a great location, just a few minutes walk from the beach. There is a kitchen, nice living room, great balcony and all-and-all everything was as we had expected. We would absolutely go back and stay here, again.

So Chic Villas is "one of a kind", "the precious gem" accommodation service in the Orient Bay area of SXM island. Whichever you go for, (there are 3 varieties of accomodation), "Côté Mer", "Côté Rêve" and "Côté Chic"...you CAN'T GO WRONG !!! This is our second consequtive year with them, and everything is just great. Very distinctive and admirable family operated business, run by its owners the way every hospitality business should be managed. Amazing people, beautiful locations, stellar rental units for 2...4...or more people. Clean, functional, stylish, spacious apartments and literally 150ft from the warm Caribbean waters...TOP. Convenience of airport pickup / drop-off shuttle service to make you stay totally "stress less" from it's very beginning. Also, the most competitive car rental offers for the whole duration of your vacation are managed by your hosts as well, upon request. Go check their website, get in touch with the owners and book your "spot in heaven". That's what we did 2 yrs ago and it was the most phenomenal and enjoyable decision we have made in a while.

One of our favorite vacations in this beautiful part of the world. Moune & Dominique were fantastic hosts (we did almost all that they recommended and loved everything!). The apartment is gorgeous, super convenient and within walking distance of great restaurants, a scrumptious bakery, grocery store and your choice of idyllic beaches. Amazing isn't the word for this. We will definitely be recommending to friends. :) A huge benefit to this listing is being picked up and dropped off at the airport and having the car included with the room - your hosts have thought of everything!

Cote Chic is a wonderful villa for your vacation. The villa is very clean and well maintained. Located within walking distance to the beach, many restaurants and shops, you will never need to leave Orient Beach area unless you want to explore the island. Owners, Moune and Dominique were very helpful and gracious. We loved our stay and look forward to returning to Cote Chic this winter!

We stayed for a week's holiday with a family of five. While having been to other locations in St. Martin/Maarten on multiple occasions, our experience at this property was our best island visit to date. The accommodations were spot on and the location outstanding. Best of all are the property owners, Moune and Dominique - who are fabulously helpful. Their advice on the best beaches and restaurants gave a great "insiders" view of the island. They did everything possible to ensure we had a great stay - and we did!

Cote Chic is exactly as the pictures shows it as. And yes, you are literally a 2 minute walk to the beach. We stayed at KonTiki bar during the day on Orient Beach and our waiter Aurelien was the best. He helped make our trip what it was. You can actually make Cote Chic an all inclusive if you wanted too. 2 minute walk to the beach (many places to eat lunch on the beach), the village square comes alive at night with many restaurants for dinner and shops that are open along with a grocery store and places to purchase pastries and several places for breakfast as well if you choose not to cook. Our Villa came with a safe and all the doors have solid locks on them so I felt we were secure and safe. Moune was very nice and showed us how to use everything in the villa including the washing machine at is in French...lol There were a total of 4 of us. 2 couples. We have been staying on the Dutch side and wanted to be closer to Orient Beach. None of us would hesitate to come back to Cote Chic for another visit.

Orient Bay is like a paradise, plenty of nature, beautiful beaches, calm people and enough away from big centers. The best we can say about Cote Chic is that it fits perfectly with Orient Bay.

This property was even better than we expected. The place was so clean. Everything you could ever need. We stayed for 2 weeks....it was perfect. Moune & Dominique were so very helpful. They picked us up at the airport. After our 1st week we decided to rent a car. They arranged for our car rental & delivered right to our door. The location was steps to the beach...as stated. Orient Village is within walking distance....has everything! Best restaurants, beach bars, bakeries and a very affordable market. You really do not need a rental car....but is nice to see all that St. Martin has to offer.....beautiful beaches not to miss. We made so many friends with the locals....can't wait to return.

Moune & Dominique were absolutely wonderful hosts for our one week vacation! We cannot wait to go back. The apartment was exactly as advertised...extremely clean, beautiful and conveniently located. We were able to cook in the kitchen or just steps to many restaurants, or quick cab ride to Grand Cas. The beaches are just steps away from the apartment...But, we never felt it was loud or too close. It still seemed very private. We can't say enough how much we appreciate the hospitality of Moune & Dominique and we highly recommend it.

Cote Chic is a clean modern condo with a fantastic location a 1-2 minute walk to Orient Beach and restaurant and stores within walking distance. The spacious unit had an upstairs and downstairs patio with a small yard area all with ample furniture. A full kitchen was well stocked with utensils, dishes, etc. The owners add many extras such as a washing machine, umbrella/folding chairs for beaches without services, fully stock bar, Wi-Fi... This is a great value considering what hotel rooms cost in Saint Martin.
