Recent Oyster Pond reviews

  • 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."

  • Great Location, awsome view and friendly people!

    "The location is perfect for those who want to be a little away from the action but not to far out of reach. The condo was just as it shows in the pictures and the view from the terrace over the marina was just wonderful. Watching the boats come and go and the sun rise was great. Plenty of places to walk to for lunch/dinner on days we just wanted to hang out around the condo. We were so glad we shared this with our friends who not been to St. Martin. The condo had everything we needed and plenty of room for everyone."

  • Wonderful vacation

    "We stayed in the Villa Victoria with 2 couples. The home is very large and we had room for more. The pool and outdoor areas are GORGEOUS. We loved the house. It was also very nice to have a chef come cook. We highly recommend Ramon. The housekeeping and rental company were both very nice and hospitable. The only negative, is it is a long drive up hill to get to the house. But it pays off with gorgeous views!!!"

  • 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."

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.
