Marigot Bay is an excellent location to purchase a Villa with Vacation apartments, with higher than average occupancy rates.
Pomme d’Amour is a Caribbean/South American-style villa built 15 years ago by its present occupant owners. Its warm colors, blend well with the lush vegetation surrounding it.
It is situated in the Southern ridge of Marigot with great views of the ocean and a lovely secluded cove, a 4-minute walk from the villa down a nature path for swimming and snorkeling.
The property can be used as a large family unit, able to sleep up to 16 persons, and also can be a rental.
The villa consists of a three-bedroom owner’s apartment ( which could be managed and rented in the owner’s absence), plus 2X two-bedroom, and 1x one-bedroom apartments.
The present owners are excellent hosts and have built up a good business over the years with many returning guests. There are Caribbean Sunset sea views from the apartments. Reviews on the vacation rental websites are many and all are excellent.
A typical review on VRBO:
“Beautiful property steps away from a secluded beach. Set in lush tropical gardens. Villa is impeccably kept with all you can ever need. Hosts are present and caring to your every need. Of the many places we visited around the world, Villa Pomme D’ Amour is right at the top. Will be back.”
The property has a very large private parking for 4 cars (well lit at night) and the villa is built lower for a better view of the ocean and easy access to the secluded cove. Wooden steps lead down to the apartments.
The owner’s apartment is composed of 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a good size kitchen that opens onto a large living area. The main bedroom and the living area open onto a 51-foot veranda with wide louver doors for meals and leisure time, overlooking the pool, the gardens, and on the right side the Caribbean ocean. The size of the apartment is approximately 2500 square feet.
Below the owners, the apartment is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment with a kitchen, lounge, and balcony. The size is 650 square feet
Next to the owner’s apartment are two identical two-bedroom, one bathroom apartments, each with a kitchen, lounge and dining area and a relaxing balcony. The size of each of these apartments is 750 square feet.
To the front of the apartments are a deck and pool. The pool is 32 feet by 12 feet and 3 feet at one end and five feet at the deep end. It is a salt water pool.
Within the garden area is an attractive tree deck area, which is used as a gym and additional relaxation area.
There is also a good-sized greenhouse for the easy growing of local vegetables and salads. The lush garden area has an abundance of flowers and fruit trees.
The property also has a good-sized host’s office area plus storage and laundry.
There is an 8000-gallon water tank but supplies of water from WASCO are never a problem.
The apartments have an excellent occupancy rate for 5/ 6 months of the year and approximately 50- 60% occupancy mid to low season.
The owners employ a gardener/caretaker and housekeeper.
The apartments have an excellent occupancy rate and good revenue, based on 3 rental apartments and if the owners rent out their accommodation and have the property managed it becomes a 4 apartment rental.
A very well maintained home, with a good feel factor close to the Marina and Restaurants in Marigot Bay, one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean.
For someone wishing to relocate to the Caribbean and have a good income from their real estate investment, this provides an excellent option.
