Philipsburg villa description

This two bedroom, two and a half bath villa is situated right on Great Bay Beach in a small complex of twelve individual villas with a lovely beach front swimming pool and breath-taking ocean views. This gated complex with on-site management is the perfect place to relax around the pool or to just lounge on your private lanai or elevated deck overlooking our beautiful beach. It is remodeled inside and out with new furniture and king beds.
The location is ideal because it is on the opposite side of Great Bay from the bustling Philipsburg Cruise Port, so you can enjoy the wonderful views of the cruise ships' comings and goings without the crowds! There are as many as six cruise ships in port at one time and watching them is a favorite past-time of just about everyone who stays at our complex.
There are endless activities available in Saint Maarten/Saint Martin and the surrounding islands if you are interested in something other than vegging out on our gorgeous beach or beachside pool and patio


Recently remodeled: Tastefully decorated with all new beds and bedding (600 thread count silky sheets!), sleeper sofa and living room furniture. All 3 bathrooms were entirely remodeled with the 2 private upstairs bedroom baths each receiving new round showers and rain showerheads with handheld shower wands. A new viewing deck is available through patio doors from the ocean side bedroom which overlooks the beach, ocean, and cruise ship dock. The entire kitchen was remodeled including a new stove, full sized microwave, dishwasher, plenty of cabinet space, and granite tile. We repainted the entire interor and fully stocked with dinner ware, cooking supplies, spices, blender, and bar accessories. There are even little drink umbrellas waiting just for you!

Short walk to everything: There is a local convenience store a half block away for the last minute necessities. Your favorite restaurants, shops, piers, and people watching is just a short 5-10 minute walk down the beach or boardwalk. This is one of the best locations on the island as you can have peace and quiet when you want it or walk just a few minutes to all the shopping, restaurants, and beach activiity your heart would ever desire.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: This is a picture of my wife, myself and our two sons. We live in Topeka, KS and love going to warm beach weather. We love all the activities, shopping, and wonderful food on the island. We have been going to St. Maarten for almost 20 years and finally decided that this was the perfect location to keep coming back to. It is the perfect location as the access to the beach and town cannot be beaten. Also, you are a short walk or drive away from grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping.

Why the Owner Chose Philipsburg:
We discovered St. Maarten 20 years ago and this villa almost 8 years ago. We know you will enjoy this beautiful location with great views of the ocean and a short convenient walk to shopping, beach activities, restaurants, and ice cream shops! We're proud of our vacation property and know that you will want to keep coming back.
