Oyster Pond villa description

A spacious family villa, this property is ideally suited for multi-generational vacations. Equipped with a variety of children's toys and books as well as an extensive beach library for everyone else. This property is sure to have something to amuse everyone. The private pool on the deck allows for quick dips day and night. Dawn Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, is just a 7 minute walk away. This is a downhill walk and is quite quick, but the walk back is up hill and will take at least twice as long. Dawn Beach will give you access to some of the best snorkeling on the island. At the far end of this beach you can walk to a gourmet dinner and gambling at the Westin Hotel.

All the beaches on Saint Maarten have public access. Some are deserted, but many have both beach bars as well as activities, including a variety of water sport equipment rental. Every day you can go to a different beach. Remember to pick up the most recent Discover magazine in the airport when you arrive. There is usually one at the villa if you forget.

A duty free port, SXM has some great bargain shopping. Phillipsburg has a large selection of beautiful jewelry and watches as well as a long boardwalk on a lovely beach. You can swim and shop and go to happy hour all in one spot. Marigot, on the French side has European designer shopping as well as a large outdoor market. This is also where you can get the ferry to Anguilla for a day trip.

Saint Maarten has many excursions available - from sailing on a 10 meter America's Cup yacht to a tour on a Pirate Ship. Fishing, sailing, windsurfing, Jet skiing, snorkeling and scuba diving and para sailing are all easily accessible on the island. There is an activity for everyone. Ferries leave from various locations to the islands of Anguilla and St. Barth. Both islands are fun for a day trip. The St. Barth ferry leaves from Captain Olivers, just across the pond, every Wednesday. The Anguilla ferry leaves from Marigot daily.

A minute drive away is the best baby beach on the island, Galion Beach/Coconut Grove. As we affectionately call it, Coco Lobo, is just past the Butterfly Farm, where you can witness an impressive display of Lepidopterology and botany in the early mornings as the butterflies break out of their cocoons. Coco Lobo is also a popular kite sailing local; always exciting to watch.

Fiddler's Green has spacious living areas including a dinning room table that seats 12, everyone can come together in the evening to share their various adventures. The villa boasts a beautiful view across the ocean to St. Barths. Even at night the view can't be beat twinkling lights of this French island.

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 1996

                      About: Born in the USA, we moved to Montreal, Canada in the 1960's. We have the splendid privilege to enjoy some of the best skiing on the East coast and then fly down to Saint Maarten to some of the best beaches in the Caribbean! Building our own house meant that we can travel with our dogs too. Life is good!

                      Why Oyster Pond:
                      Situated on the eastern border between Dutch/French Saint Maarten we are located in an area developed for villas. We avoid the extremely tourist areas without losing any convenience. Just 10 minutes from Phillipsburg everything we need is nearby. The French side has great restaurants and excellent convenience stores; French baguettes, croissants and pain au chocolate every morning.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      With a spectacular view of the beach and ocean and the gentle trade winds our home is a true paradise. Even at night we have the twinkling lights of St. Barths in our sites. A private garden behind the house is a great place for morning coffee and if you are lucky maybe you can find some fresh lemons or limes. Even visiting several times a year there is always something new to discover on the island of Sint Maarten - St.Martin. This is truly a tourist paradise with an endless variety of activities and so many beautiful beaches it is impossible to 'do it all' in one trip. The villa invites you to relax and enjoy your stay. You will find complimentary 'starter' groceries in the kitchen, milk, eggs, bread, butter so you can enjoy your arrival with breakfast for your first morning already at hand.
