  • Best Vacation Ever!

    "My fiance and our two daughters recently had the privilege of spending an amazing 7 days at Villa Esmeralda and to say we were completely blown away would be an understatement. The property itself is simply breathtaking. The way that the home is built is beyond compare; it was like staying in a modern day Middle Eastern palace. The rooms were truly exceptional in size and very well appointed. Our daughters had there very own separate quarters as did my fiance and I. This home is designed for large groups seeing as though it offers so much privacy. The pool area was beautiful and the breeze from the bay made relaxing outside very comfortable. Roy, the gentlemen in charge of maintaining the property was so very polite and helpful. Some very good places to check out is Sunbeach Club on Orient Beach...be sure to ask for shots of love. Also check out Pineapple Pete's. You are sure to have the most enjoyable vacation when vacationing at Villa Esmeralda."

  • AWESOME 5 NIGHTS..ROOM WITH A VIEW

    "Joined by another couple, we enjoyed 5 fabulous nights at the OBBR in late April 2014. The condo was perfectly suited for 2 couples. The bedrooms were quite large and the bedding/ mattresses were hotel quality. The kitchen was fully stocked with all of the utensils and dinnerware you could ask for. The bathrooms were more than adequate and linens/towels were plentiful. The location was great. Easy to cab to Grand Case, Orient Beach or Philipsburg for dinner/ beach. But lets face it..the selling point of this condo is the rooftop pool/kitchen. The roof was completely private day,... and night, and you had great views of St. Barts on even the cloudiest of days. The pictures do not do the rooftop pool justice. You could easily get your sun up there all day while enjoying your own beverages from the kitchen. Irene was very attentive to all of our requests prior to landing. She replied almost always on the same day and was extremely easy to work with. We could not have been happier with her service. A great place to stay and we someday hope to be back! Thanks so much Irene. This review was easy to write."

  • Incredibly Wonderful

    "This condo lacks nothing! So comfortable from the instant you walk through the door to falling asleep. It is larger than the pictures suggest with incredible views just as stated. Sipping morning coffee or cocktails on either of the balconies will be a favorite for sure. All 3 have very comfy seating! Each bedroom offers very nice beds/bedding with plenty of closet space. The en suite baths are luxurious - with soaking tubs, double sinks, huge showers with double shower heads, plenty of towels, multiple blow dryers and even a curling iron! The gourmet kitchen is well stocked for prepping any meal. My husband was delighted to prepare several meals and was not disappointed. We did eat out as well and found the food fresh, tasteful and reasonably priced. The staff at Oyster are to be commended for their professionalism and friendliness. All are extremely helpful - just ask! We had a great family vacation..want to come back and would hands down stay here again! The owners have this rental unit well thought out, equipped and you'll hate to leave just as we did!"

  • Beautiful setting

    "My family of six, children ages 18,16,14 and 11 stayed for a week. Great setting and we never got tired of the view. The house is spacious and the pool/deck is wonderful. The pictures are accurate. It is very comforting having a staff on site and Maureen was great. The house is on a hillside which provides the great view, so there is a bit of a steep walk to the beach. The beach at Oyster Pond is very small and we would highly recommend the beach at Orient Bay which is a short drive. Busby's is a great little beach bar with good breakfeasts. Would also highly recommend a yacht rental at SXM. Pricey, but worth it and Pinel Island is a great place for lunch. The location was great as it was also a short drive to Phillipsburg. The only minor downside of the house is that the family room was very warm even at night. It is not air-conditioned which is understandable given the shortages on the island. The ocean breezes never seemed to cool the room down which during the day didnt matter as we were never inside, but, at night it was still very warm. May have just been the week we were there. I would recommend some larger fans in that room. Suzanne was an absolute joy to work with"
