Last month we had the opportunity to travel to the Caribbean to the island paradise of Saint Martin. (or Sint Maarten if your on the dutch part of the island)

A paradise filled with both Dutch and French culture, St. Martin has two very different but familiar sides of an island both catering to those who love adventures, culinary and exotic beaches. We had the chance to stay on the French side of the island in the highlands of Mt. Rouge at the very beautiful, Maison de Miki.

A multiple story villa with 270 degree views of Marigot, Simpson Bay & Mullet Beach Bay, this wonderful castle style environment was perched on the side of the cliff overlooking most of the south part of the island. Big thanks for the hospitality Maison de Miki!

Thanks Maison de Miki!

Saint Martin is filled with adventures from the beaches to the mountains and out into the ocean, there is never a dull moment while exploring both sides of the island. Some of our favorite moments below capture our very first trip to the Caribbean, again big thanks to Maison de Miki and enjoy the pics!
