NEWPORT, RI, January 2007 –- Villa Le Reve (the Dream) is real. This is a brand-new, five-suite, self-contained private villa cum resort on its own secluded beach in St. Martin's select Baie Rouge area. Represented by Wimco Villas, the Newport, RI, villa rental and hotel reservations company. Le Reve is one of the most carefully thought out villas available for rental in the Caribbean.

Villa Le Reve (Wimco code C GLU) is in the highly private Baie Rouge Beach joining 9 other villas on this 1 mile long stretch of private beach. The villas here range from 1 bedroom to 6 bedrooms and are all private and secluded from each other. They are rented separately, but can be for rented at the same time to accomodate large family reunions and other gatherings.

'The idea that you can vacation in a private villa and yet have access to resort-level services and amenities is an emerging trend in the Caribbean,' says Stiles Bennet, Wimco's Director of Marketing. 'We are thrilled to be representing Le Reve which represents the highest end of this trend.'

Villa Le Reve is available for the first time in January '07. Sleek and stylish, this five bedroom villa is surrounded by a huge terrace, with sea views and direct beach access, Le Reve offers a private tennis court (semi professional surface) lit for night play, a heated infinity pool and Jacuzzi, a fully equipped gym / spa (elliptical machine, free weights and bench, boxing bag with gloves, pilates balls and yoga mats), exterior showers, a media room with mini-movie theater (with extensive movie library) and billiards, two screened beachside gazebos perfect for massages, and much more. Spa services can be requested when booking the villa resort.

In addition to tasteful décor, state of the art equipment and an Effeti Chef Kitchen make this villa an ideal choice for a group of friends or a family get together. The dining room seats 14 at a custom-designed Tucker Robbins wood sculptured table. The bedrooms are equally sized, and each has an en-suite bathroom. The villa is staffed with a chef and a butler who will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner upon request. Services of a wine connoisseur are optional. There is six-times weekly maid service.

Le Reverents rents for $55,000 weekly from Jan. 6 to Dec. 14, 2007.
