Doug and Becky have provided the perfect home for their visitors in Villa #2. It has everything that you would want and require to make your stay relaxing and stress free. There is no need to bring anything except some food items as they have provided everything you will need. We brought some frozen meats (turkey, roast, ground beef, back...

This Villa and it`s situation can only be described only as"a little piece of paradise" We have been traveling to the Caribbean for the last 30 years and have visited most of the Islands,some many times over. As there are no direct flights from the UK to St Maarten we had to fly to Paris and change planes there but...

Love it there. All the amenities of home but you're on the beach!! Each villa is different bc they're individually owned and furnished. The complex is gated and locked at all times. They've got security on staff day and night. All villas are equipped with all you need. Best part is you walk out your gate and you choose the...

This is my ninth trip to St. Martin and I must say that this is the nicest condo that we have ever rented. It is right on Great Bay- the best swimming beach on the island- the water's edge was about 50 feet from our deck. The view was fantastic- almost hypnotic. Made me want to never leave the deck...

Yes, my friends, this is our fourth year here at the villas. We are still debating whether to renew for next year. My wife and I heard through the grapevine that there are other Caribbean islands that we may want to explore;). I don't know if that's true...not when you have all this at the Villas. Being a small piece...

Had a wonderful stay in Villa #12. Didn't need the third bedroom and the two upstairs bedrooms were perfect for the three of us. Nice to have two sinks in the master bedroom and the kitchen was well equipped for any type of cooking you may want to do, even a dishwasher! Jim the Manager greeted us immediately upon arrival...

I have been a long time reader of Trip advisor and plan my holidays based on reviews posted. I realize that there are negative people who are never happy and for some reason derive joy from trying to tarnish someone’s hard efforts to try and make their stay as enjoyable as possible. As a result I will I ignore these...

We just returned from a terrific week in St Martin. We stayed at The Villas unit # 5 and had no complaints. The air-conditioning was working fine throughout the place. The kitchen is very well equipped for everything we needed. The blender and Martini shaker got a very good workout. Only criticism could be that the unit is a little...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

Our nine beachfront villas have spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, while the remaining two overlook our tropical gardens.We know how to make your visit to our beautiful island everything you’ve hoped for and expected. ... more   less
