Reservations Villa Canoua  
This St. Martin villa is one of those rare "dream come true" vacation spots that travelers are seeking once they decided to go for the Caribbean. The two bedroom 2 ½ bath fully air-conditioned, very private and secluded vacation home sits on a privileged hillside location at the exclusive villa community of Mont Choisy, better known as the Happy Bay community. This is a quiet, secluded, gated residential area highly sought after by people looking for peaceful vacations to enjoy a high degree of privacy and serenity.

The villa has a million dollar view of Happy Bay and the Caribbean Sea towards Anguilla Island. Yet the spectacular view is not the only draw card of this popular property. Villa Canoua has a very high number of return guests and they do not only come for the unobstructed ocean views on 180 degrees. The villa is peaceful, very secluded, comfortable and cozy.

Villa Canoua is located at one of the best spots on the slope of Mt. Choisy/Happy Bay allowing you to take in unobstructed, spectacular views at day and marvelous views of gorgeous Caribbean sunsets.

Enjoy the beauty and serenity from the privacy of Canoua's terrace or pool deck overlooking the sea.

Unlike the other huge luxury villas in this exclusive neighborhood, Villa Canoua with 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths is smaller, yet just the right place for 1-2 couples or families who don't want to spend a fortune.
