We were lucky enough to stay at Villa Corinne for 7 nights recently and we could not have had a more wonderful experience. From the beginning planning stages and throughout our stay, Corinne graciously answered all our questions promptly and kindly. We were met upon our arrival at the airport by a friendly transport agent and had a pleasant and scenic ride to Coral Beach Club. This was set up prior to our arrival by the CBC concierge. Once we arrived to CBC, check-in was very quick and seamless, and we were thankful for that. Upon walking into Villa Corinne, we were amazed at the stunning views out the wall of glass in the living room. The place is just full of light. The concierge gave us a tour of our villa, explained how things worked and helpful hints as well. Awaiting us was a bottle of champagne, a box of gourmet chocolates (with pictures of the villa on the chocolate pieces) and a beautiful arrangement of flowers from Corinne and Richard. Very unexpected and very appreciated! The rest of our week was full of impressive moments and realizations. Villa Corinne is impeccable. All the furnishings are very high quality, it's sparkly clean and amazing views from every window/door. The kitchen is completely stocked with every thing you could possibly need, quality appliances, fixtures, gadgets and tableware. We appreciated having some plastic glasses too to take outside. Outside there is a grill and it was great to be able to use that to cook our food. The patio furniture is very comfortable and of great quality. The beach towels were so soft, big and superior quality. It was nice to have a washer and dryer as well, a good perk. Our bed was very comfortable and the master shower has a glass door in it that leads outside to a private outdoor shower. Now that was cool! Lotion, shampoo, soap, makeup remover towelettes, hangers, robes, iron plus board and a hairdryer were provided. On our first day there we were out swimming in the pool and Victoria, the maid, brought us some rafts. We really enjoyed having the rafts for our use. And there is a cabinet filled with beach toys, snorkeling gear, beach shoes, games and more for your use while there. We loved how there were multiple iPod/iPhone docking stations around so we could have music throughout the villa and outside. This villa offers great views of the sunrise and ocean. You have a private pool right on the beach overlooking the ocean. It's beautiful. Plus the sunken gaze

This truly is a perfect paradise! We usually stay at all-inclusive resorts, so this was our first time renting a villa off VRBO and we couldn't be happier with the experience. Starting with the airport transfer to the villa, it was seamless, quick and easy. Check-in was equally fast and without problems or delays. The grounds here are very pretty, love all the white. Stepped into the villa and the view took our breath away, it is so amazing. The wall of glass doors in the living room that totally open to create an open air living space, is remarkable. All the rooms were very clean and well decorated. The amenities Corinne and Richard have stocked their villa with is very impressive. Very high quality beach towels, kitchen appliances, gadgets, patio furniture and all is top notch. A very comfortable place to stay on vacation for sure! The sunken gazebo in your own private pool right on the beach is impeccable. What a view! It is great to have daily housekeeping service too. Victoria was a sweet lady and did the laundry (sheets-towels) and dishes daily. The very short walk to the market was great. The market had everything we needed to grill out for lunch or dinner and their pastries were delicious. We really enjoyed the tasty pizza right next door as well. Plus breakfast and lunch at Mr. Busby's was great. Good food! And dinner at Daniel's By The Sea was fantastic also. Their garlic bread is the most delicious I have had. Our group of 4 had a great dinner experience at Canoa, at the marina, steps away from Coral Beach Club. We were also able to eat at Big Fish just outside the Coral Beach Club gate and we loved the atmosphere (very South Beach) and the food was tasty too. So many good places to eat, all within steps from this fantastic villa at Coral Beach Club on Dawn Beach St. Maarten. Throughout our stay, we had a few questions, so we emailed Corinne and she promptly and kindly responded to us, which was very helpful. She has been so very kind throughout our whole process from the questions we had before we rented, so the questions we had while here, she is a fantastic and sweet person to work with. Thank you Corinne and Richard for this well-kept, luxurious, stocked, beautiful, relaxing and fantastic villa. We love it and do NOT want to leave. We would definitely love to return!

I have traveled the world and stayed in at least 12 VRBO properties. However none of them have ever received a review like this. This property is fantastic. The views you see are not photo shopped or taken with wide angle lenses. It is as the pictures show it. Magnificent views, beautiful beach,well equipped kitchen, if there is paradise on earth this is it. Beach is beautiful,secured and well maintained. House is clean and well kept. You will not want to leave. Wonderful places to eat and beach bars a short walk down the beach. Water is amazing, perfect temperature and clear, clear clear. Fishing was off season but still a good day. Captain Allen's snorkel trip was beautiful. If you don't have a great time here and relax and enjoy yourself here you should have stayed home. Your hostess is a gem. In all of my VRBO stays she is the only owner who has ever emailed me to make sure everything was ok. This is a must go stop. Dan B.

It is so gratifying when discriminating guests who are well traveled like you really enjoyed their vacation in my home. We love it and truly love sharing it with those who appreciate all the amenities and great location. Thank you so much for posting this terrific review. Please return again soon! Corinne
I am still in awe! We take a family vaca every August and have stayed at some amazing villas.... but Corinne's villa tops them all! AMAZING views, furnishings, location and maid service make this villa the place to be if you are going to visit St Martin. Loved waking up to the views of the ocean right from my bed. Private location - yet close to everything. Corinne is very thorough and quick to respond. She made booking easy peasy. There is so much I want to tell you about this place but I am going to make it short and sweet.... I am a spoiled brat and usually find something to complain about but not here! I walked around in awe the entire time. LOVE LOVE this place.

Fantastic Week! Can't wait to return!
Fantastic Week! Can't wait to return!
Our week at Villa Corinne was amazing. The Villa is stunning! The moment we walked in we knew the week was going to be great. In our opinion the villa is more beautiful in person than in the photos. It's hard to capture the details of the villa on film that make it so great. Also; the location of the villa was one of the best features. We were steps away from the beach, walking distance to two hotels, fantastic restaurants (Big Fish) and the best part for our family was our multiple trips daily to Mr. Busby's. Mr. Busby's was a less than a 2 minute walk on the beach and proved to be a great "hangout"...great breakfast, lunch, drinks and dinner and all for very reasonable prices. It was a low key place that made us feel like locals! The staff at the Coral Beach Club were kind and helpful. The villa was always clean and we were never disrupted. I must mention Dawn Beach provides an excellent backdrop for an engagement. Our daughter was proposed to at sunset on the beach and that was the highlight of our trip! This vacation was relaxing, fun and allowed us to create lasting memories. We are eager to return!

Owner response: So pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Villa Corinne and all the amenities as well as Busby's on the beach. We love it also and make that our first stop upon arrival. And, what a marvelous memory - your daughter becoming engaged on that gorgeous beach. I love romantic stories and this is a first for us. We've had honeymoons, anniversaries but never "the proposal." Best of luck to her and her future husband. And, thank you for such a wonderful review - we appreciate it very much.
Terrific time at the property as a family with two children in their twenties. The condo was amazing in terms of location, amenities, space, cleanliness and ocean view. The only complaint would have been that the pool is not good for children due to its depth (there is no shallow end). However, the view sitting on the back pool patio is spectacular. It can be quite breezy if the wind is up. The restaurants in the area were amazing, especially Canoa across the street, Tropicana in Marigot and Mario's Bistro. I would highly recommend a car to be able to visit all the different towns and beaches. We had a very relaxing time as a family and enjoyed making our breakfasts, lunches, and pool drinks at the condo.

Owner response: Thank you, Laura, for your comments. So pleased you had a good time at Villa Corinne and St Martin. Yes, that view is amazing and gazing out from the patio to the ocean is what I call "instant serenity." The pool is great for lap swimming. We do have pool floats for the children if they need them, but you're right, for the little ones, bring the water wings! Please return again soon. Best Regards, Corinne & Richard
4 days was definitely not enough. Well appointed villa had eveything we needed & a perfect location. Felt very welcome & all of the nearby restaurants were great. Going to book for next year right now. Looking forward to our return trip. Thanks Corinne for sharing your beautiful villa with us.

Stayed at Villa Corrine for a week and had a wonderful vacation. Villa was beautiful. Just as described in listing and photos. Walk out your door to your own personal plunge pool and then just a few steps more and you're on Dawn Beach. Can't get much better than that. Walk to Mr. Busby's for breakfast (homemade jonnycakes) and Happy Hour. Walk to Big Fish and Conoa for dinner -- both excellent! Villa Corrine is in an excellent location for a great beach vacation. Corrine was great to work with and answered all our questions right away and gave us great information about things to do and places to eat. We will definitely be returning and I highly recommend Villa Corrine to anyone looking for a very beautiful, well-maintained villa on the beach.

Owner response: Thank you for your review! It's nice to learn you enjoyed your stay in our villa and everything met your expectations. That is our mantra: Our guests should feel like they are in our "home" and are taken care of as if we were there. There is nothing like taking a cool drink out to the terrace and watching the sunset or taking a midnight swim in the lap pool. It certainly sounds like you enjoyed all the attractions of St. Martin and especially our location near restaurants, the marina, beautiful Dawn Beach. We look forward to your return next year.

Villa Corinne is a beautiful beachfront villa both inside and out! We loved the high end furnishings and the private pool. It was elegantly decorated. Dawn Beach is fabulous! It is not very crowded and more quiet than others on the island. There are great restaurants within walking distance and a small grocery store. The scenery is breathtaking! We can't wait to return!

About the owner: We have homes in Connecticut, New York and Florida, but Villa Corinne in St. Martin is our favorite. We truly relax there when it's just the two of us but enjoy bringing our children and grandchildren for vacations. We enjoy great dining and St. Martin with the French influence never disappoints. We also love the beach so having it at our doorstep is wonderful. All in all, we have been blessed in many ways for which we are grateful. Come and enjoy our home when we are not using.
Why the Owner Chose Dawn Beach:
We've been going to St. Martin for 20 years and love it more each time. After renting many Villas in Dawn Beach we decided to buy one because it was oceanfront, and designed for the discerning client. Designed by a French Architect, it is the ultimate in comfort and beauty. The island is friendly, safe and boasts great French food. Villa Corinne is our 'dream come true.'
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The proximity to the beach is perfect. I step from my living room to the terrace and pool and walk a few feet to the beach. It is furnished with beautiful designer furniture and amenities. When I open the door each time I arrive, I am still amazed at how gorgeous it is. The Villa is a one minute walk to three excellent restaurants and 2 minutes by car from the Westin Hotel where one can gamble, enjoy a dinner or shop. It truly is a divine location.
