  • Looking for a romantic getaway? This is it!!

    "Villa Leone is a beautiful unit in the Guana Bay Villas. The unit sits right at the waterfront. We chose to stay on the first floor, "The Waves" . With the drapes open, we could wake to see the ocean, and go to sleep in the moonlight. The villa looks exactly as the pictures portray. It is bright, immaculate, and has all the amenities one could desire. The queen beds were new, sporting the softest of sheets and a cozy comforter. The unit had plenty of towels and the kitchen had everything we required. We chose to grill one evening, and dine on the patio by moonlight. Very romantic! The area is quiet and secluded. This is not the typical hotel/resort atmosphere. If you are looking for crowds you won't find it here. But, if you like privacy, and don't like to share your space with a huge crowd, you will love this villa. The pool is clean and well-maintained. And, the beach-access is just a short walk. You must have a car to access the area, and it is best to shop on your way in. The villa is a short ride to Phillipsburg, where you can walk along the "boardwalk" and enjoy local restaurants, shopping and the beach. For a lavish treat, take a ride to Pinelle Island, where you will find a beautiful beach, crystal clear water, and the best spiny lobster, as you dine right at the water!! Yummy. And, you may want to stop in at Topper's in Simpson Bay for a casual meal and lots of fun at karaoke. This was a fifth trip to St. Maarten, and the villa offered a different perspective to staying in a resort. We so enjoyed this trip, and look forward to next year."

  • Love, Love, Love Villa Valhalla!

    "We could not have picked a more perfect place for our group of 8 adults (three families, all related). Perfect style-casual & comfortable; perfect layout-open & easy; perfect setting-gorgeous views & superbly located. Daphne was a pleasure to work with, as were Ken, Catherine and Catherine's assistant. As to the VRBO review questions: the listing description was accurate, the pictures reflect the property (only we think it feels larger than the pictures show), the property was clean and well-maintained (it is a rental property), the owner was more-than-helpful in answering questions (above and beyond), and we would all recommend to family and friends. As for things to do; hanging out at the Villa is hard to beat! We liked Sunset Bar/Maho Beach to watch the planes, snorkeling at Dawn Beach and Mullet Bay Beach. Mr. Busby’s/ Daniel’s was the best food we had - although the service was sub-par all four time we were there... and yes, some of us kept going back! (Note that patrons were visible frustrated with the lack of service, and I have to wonder if this was an anomaly? We did not experience this at any other restaurant.) The Marigot open market was nice and we picked up fresh Mahi-Mahi and Lobster early one morning. Opens at 7AM-go early for fish, and they will hold it for you if you want to shop just a little. I loved the very spicy, delicious, fish tacos at Dinghy Dock (Tue night special), and the 21-year-olds liked the fish & chips, but the "old" guys would not go back for the food! All of these things to do, and places to eat, are so subjective – just suffice it to say that you will not go wrong with Daphne, and her family's little piece of paradise! Can’t thank Daphne, Catherine and Ken enough! Three Families from Minnesota"

  • Beautiful property, directly on beach, perfect!

    "You want to stay here. Hands down the most perfect location in NBBC. Directly on the only perfect stretch of this beach which is between two huge rock walls and really, it's your own, you will be likely the only people on it as we were. Walk right out of your huge open wall of doors into the sea, gorgeous clean sand, no rocks, no seaweed, crystal clear water. Let the waves lull you to sleep in your comfortable bed! For a rental, this place was incredible, every item you need, tons of towels, the furniture clean and comfortable. Plenty big for our family of 4. The entire back and side open up to let in the gorgeous sunshine, sea air and view. Oh did I mention the view? Anguilla to one side and Marigot and the mountains of the St. Martin the other. You have never seen a more beautiful sunrise. NBBC itself is quiet and close to everything, parking plentiful, people were friendly and the grounds well taken care of and lovely, the pools looked nice but we didn't use them due to our perfect beach. NBBC is gated with a guard and you can't get onto the beach without coming through the gates. We felt very safe here. Lots of local Europeans living in NBBC who keep their own apartments beautiful with flowers, etc. It's really magical. There is a little french cafe for bakery and espresso a few steps from NBBC, a grocery store and a some really nice restaurants also within walking distance. For all else you will need a car. We will always go back here. Sylvie (the owner) is beautiful as well. Friendly, helpful, checked on us to be sure everything was ok and became a dear friend. A perfect compliment to the villas and apartments she owns. She is truly concerned with having lovely rentals and keeping them nice and taking care of her renters. The microwave broke while we were there, we told her and went to dinner. When we returned, there was a new one. She owns other properties here which are also just as gorgeous, you absolutely cannot go wrong with any of them. Worth every penny and more, just let Sylvie help you choose the proper one for the size of your family/party. She knows what she is doing and wants you to be happy! This is a long review but I can't say enough about this place. I expected so much less and was blown away by what we got. I've stayed at a lot of rentals by owner and this is by far the best, especially for the price. If you want more info on this place from me ask Sylvie. I'm happy to share our experience and she can put you in touch with me."

  • Exceeded All Expectations

    "Completely agree with the previous review: this is one of the few times a place turned out to be even better than the photos. Stayed just shy of a week with some friends and it was hard to walk away from the house each day. Amazing views, spacious house, clean, and the pool - the pool is just an incredible addition. We got lots of recommendations from the rental manager and she was very easy to work with, not to mention quick to respond to each inquiry. The property manager was friendly, offered to drive us into town the first night for groceries, and gave us a phone to call him if we needed anything. Being way up on a hill has the advantage of feeling remote from everything - but it was a short drive to anything we needed. You can walk to bars, beach, restaurants in about 20 mins. Just be prepared for a steep hike back up. But any cab driver can take you up for a few dollars. Everything about our stay here was perfect. We will definitely stay at Casa Linda when (not if) we go back."
