Recent Oyster Pond reviews

  • Island Paradise

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our stay was fabulous. Lighthouse 3C was the nicest condo we have rented anywhere. The view is breathtaking from all windows in the unit and from the roof top infinity pool and deck. The unit is beautifully decorated in coral, green, brown and beige with very comfortable furniture. The bathrooms have incredible fixtures and beautiful tile designs. The bed is the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The kitchen is beautiful and fully stocked. The staff at Remax were wonderful to work with, and very helpful upon arrival which included a welcome basket of fruit, crackers and cookies. We certainly hope to return to St. Maarten and will stay in this unit only. We highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for an Island Paradise."

  • 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!"

  • 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."

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.
