Recent Oyster Pond reviews

  • 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"

  • Fabulous Villa

    "We recently spent a week in this beautiful villa, a special vacation for our whole family; daughter, her husband and my son and his fiancée. My son actually proposed to his girlfriend on Prickly Pear island. Right from the start Todd was prompt to answer all our questions and there were many, having never rented by owner before. He was most helpful with details such as renting a car, discounts on a catamaran trip to Prickly Pear Cay, etc. It was wonderful to have John, the manage meet us at the car rental place and then take us to food shop and give us the tour of the villa. He is such a delightful fellow and even went back to the airport in the evening with my husband to pick up my daughter and her husband. Jesula the housekeeper was great and kept the villa spotless, even did a load of laundry for us. We had her come every other day. The gardener even opened a couple of cocoanuts for us that had fallen off the trees. The grounds are lovely and the view of oyster pond and the surrounding hills is so calming. We especially enjoyed the pool, just soaking up the sun before and after the beaches.. Can't tell you how wonderful it is in the morning to have coffee on the veranda with the sun and breeze. We just loved the openness of the villa with the French doors, like living outside. Loved the closeness of Oyster Pond with the Dinghy Dock, great food and drinks, not to mention the good meal we had at Capt. Oliver's with the sand and surf in front of us. I must mention I felt much relief having a safe and a security system as we did have an engagement ring with us! I know I have written quite a bit but I did read the reviews which helped tremendously with our choice of Todd's villa. You can not go wrong, we had a fabulous vacation here! Hope to return one day! Thank you"

  • 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."

  • 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!"

Oyster Pond Travel Tips

Oyster Pond Vacation Rentals Give You Access to Two Countries

St. Martin is an island territory of both France and the Netherlands, and boasts the unique feature of having an unpatrolled border between each country's "side." What this means for travelers is the ability to soak up the sun on the French side (perhaps at one of the nudist beaches like Marigot's Orient Beach) during the day, change from your swimsuit to your party clothes at your Oyster Pond vacation rental, and then hit the Dutch town of Philipsburg for a delicious dinner and hopping nightlife.

Oyster Pond Vacation Rentals Offer Close Proximity to Philipsburg

Philipsburg is the Dutch capital of St. Maarten. As a port town, cruise ships often dock here releasing people hungry for the tax free shopping. Everything from imported electronics to handmade island crafts can be found here. With all the money you'll save choosing Oyster Pond villas as accommodations, you'll be able to purchase more souvenirs. If you're not a shopaholic, Philipsburg offers more options. You can check out the views and learn local history at two Dutch Forts dating back to the 1600s. Not far from the city is the Zoo, with over two hundred animals and botanical gardens. After the sun sets behind these shimmering blue waters, the city really comes to life with music and clubs and a reputation for some of the most energetic nightlife in the whole Caribbean.

Land and Sea Fun Surrounds St. Maarten Resorts

The southern beaches of St. Maarten are sunny with white sand under your feet and blue sky above your head. Spend your days hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, swimming, fishing, snorkeling, or simply enjoying the view. After a day of island fun, eat delicious seafood in a quiet, unique atmosphere at local favorite Big Fish, or dance the night away after a buffet meal at Captain Oliver's.
