Property description

On Island Time is a new, luxury villa in the gated community of The Villas at Oyster Pond. Designed with living space that flows seamlessly from inside to the exterior terraces and balconies over marble floors, this vacation villa makes the guest feel at home in the beauty of a Caribbean hillside. From the moment you drive through the automated driveway gate, every amenity and our concierge will afford you the comforts of home, yet make you feel as though you are truly on ''island time.''

A short drive to the bottom of the hill brings the convenience of Dawn Beach (traditionally described as one of the island's best snorkeling spots), the Westin Resort and Casino with spa, and several bars, restaurants, and small markets.

Within the villa, each large bedroom features a king sized bed, luxury bedding, air conditioning, ceiling fan, large closet with shelving, safe, marble/stone bath with walkin shower, and direct access to the pool deck and living room with 42in. HDTV/DVD/stereo.


Comfort Time: All bedrooms offer sliding doors to a private terrace on which to read or enjoy a morning cup of coffee as you watch the sun rise. Local original artwork throughout the house completes the sense that you are relaxing in a Caribbean oasis.

Every bedroom suite in Villa On Island Time affords a spectacular 4-island view, its own private terrace for ''alone time'' but with direct access to the large infinity pool with swim up bar via two exterior marble staircases. The living area floorplan allows for both private time for couples, yet offers plenty of open space and access for family time as well.

The generous infinity pool boasts a wide view of 4 islands as you float on the plush rafts or swim up to the tiki bar and enjoy the serenity of the breeze whispering through the palms. Relax on the exterior canopied bed, read a novel on one of the cushioned chaises, or dine at the outside table with umbrella to the music of the interior/exterior speakers and the built-in iPod dock after cooking in the gourmet kitchen or grilling snapper from one of the local markets. Our amenities offer vacationers the difficult choice of a 'stay-cation' On Island Time or venturing out to the island's 37 beaches and world-class dining choices. A First World problem, to be sure!

Luxury Time: On Island Time comes with a local cell phone (guest can purchase prepaid time cards at any grocery), wifi access, LCD TV in living room and all bedroom suites, beach towels, emergency standby generator, wine refrigerator, iron and ironing board, front-loading washer/dryer, hairdryer in each bathroom, housekeeper weekdays, and a property manager on call 24/7 after meeting you at the airport to ensure you remain on island time throughout your stay. Activities, spa treatments, grocery delivery, restaurant reservations, car rentals, or any other special requests can be catered to at an additional charge.

On Island Time is protected from rodents and other pests by 3 island cats that are exclusively outdoors on the grounds. Monekys, iguanas, geckos, butterflies, and assorted birdlife have all been routinely spotted about the grounds and in the neighborhood.


On Island Time: Why spend your vacation dollars at another pricey, generic resort when you can enjoy the privacy, space, and luxury of your own private tropical estate without compromising on personal services? Instead, choose to make this luxurious, staffed villa designed by vacationers FOR vacationers your Caribbean Holiday home! Check out our many 5-STAR Reviews from discriminating guests like yourself!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

Why the Owner Chose Oyster Pond:
Villa On Island Time was constructed to specifications honed over years of renting various properties on St Maarten myself. I attempted to take the best features of each villa and incorporate them into On Island Time, with the end result a comfortable home that respects the nature around it, and provides guests with a great setting to spend time with their group, but still find space and layout for private times, as desired.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
On Island Time is carved into a peaceful hillside, cascading toward the limitless ocean views below. The house was designed with seamless indoor/outdoor living in mind, yet bringing the luxuries of home to covered and uncovered living spaces. The grounds boast some of the best landscaping in the area, even offering a lawn, quite unique on St. Maarten! The manicured grounds enhance the privacy and serene nature of the property, as well as the villa's oneness with the surrounding natural beauty. All bedroom suites have direct access to the outdoor terrace and pool area, as well as limitless views across St. Martin, the ocean, and neighboring islands. This allows family members and couples alike the privacy they need for an early morning cup of coffee and swim, or a late-night glass of wine on the pool terrace without disturbing the rest of their party. A newly-constructed swim-up tiki bar removes the need to leave the inviting infinity pool, even to find some shade or to make a frozen cocktail. A local cell phone is available for guest use to make contacting the property manager, restaurants, and activities bookings convenient. $150 free grocery promotion is currently offered for rentals of at least 7 nights. Villa On Island Time also offers peace of mind in a dedicated, individual property manager (not a large management company with varying contact people) who is located within the neighborhood, an ADT security system, its location within a gated community protected by 24/7 on-site security and mobile response, and hurricane-rated glass doors/windows.
