Recent Oyster Pond reviews

  • 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"

  • La Brise, more than we could of asked for!!!

    "If you are looking to renting in St. Maarten, La Brise is the place for you! This home was magnificent, the pictures really don't do it justice. My experience form beginning to end with renting this home has been nothing short of fantastic. Lee, a true professional made my first VRBO rental experience one I will share for years to come. She hands down made myself and my family feel at ease about this sometimes questionable experience when renting abroad. Lee, was easy to talk too and I am sure she is busy, always made me feel that I was a top priority. Upon our arrival we were greeted by the on-site concierge, Rhonda. She greeted us with a warm smile and immediately made us feel at home. We walked through La Brise, the views are magnificent, kitchen amazing, bedrooms (each unique). We couldn't wait to get this vacation started. La Brise for sure met all of our needs. As our first family vacation in awhile, let alone having not lived together in years, La Brise provided that home environment but gave us the space we needed. Perched on top of hill it overlooks the beautiful Oyster Pond. It sits literally on the border of the Dutch/French side. We cooked many family meals, enjoyed cocktails by the pool in day and evening, and quite frankly didn't want to leave. We felt safe as La Brise is gated and the several iguanas we spotted in the trees kept us a ease too:) Overall, I can't say enough great thing about La Brise and its staff. You truly made my Mom's 60th Birthday a memorable one, thank you, thank you. We will be back!!"

  • 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."

  • We've returned five times!

    "Hope cottage has become our favorite spot in the Caribbean. While my wife can sleep as late as she likes because shutters keep the bedroom dark, I awaken, make coffee and enjoy breakfast and view on the deck next to the private pool. When she gets up we read or play Scrabble until driving a short distance to a beach or Philipsburg. Marigot and Grand Case are a bit further. Hope Cottage is convenient, relaxing, and beautiful. There are many wonderful restaurants near by. The only thing we miss is that before the Westin Hotel was built, Dawn Beach had a wonderful beach bar named Scavenger's. We've recommended it to friends."
