Relaxing Hideaway in Paradise
"My wife and I spent a week at Starfish Villa recently. Everything about the place was gorgeous - the interior/exterior décor, the built-in pool, the enclosed gazebo, the view from the deck, etc. The deck speakers allowed us to listen to the reggae cable station all day, and the nighttime breezes were perfect for sipping JW Blue. We ate at all the local restaurants, and tried a few further away, and they all were excellent. Busby's is only a short walk down the beach, and their pizza is a good option for lunch. This is our second stay at the Starfish Villa - the first time we didn't have a car, this time we did. Whether you rent one or not is based on how much of St. Maarten you want to see. Being a few steps from the beach is what makes this place perfect. We hope to be back again soon!"

"We have rented this home for 5 straight years and have every intention of continuing to do so. Bob and Polly continue to keep this home in tip top shape, in fact it has never been in better shape from new dishes, appliances, gardens, beach goods, pool furniture to a new very attentive house keeper. You really cannot beat this home or its owners. Bob and Polly are tremendously generous in sharing their home as well as offering suggestions on where to go and what to do. There has never been a question they could not answer! hands down, this is the best place to stay!"

"Villa Vita was an absolute dream! Our annual girl’s trip was a complete success on the beautiful island of St. Maarten. Patricia and Richard went out of their way to be accommodating; first by meeting us at the car rental and then by giving us wonderful tips and recommendations for places to eat, visit, shop at, and just general information about the island and surrounding islands. The pictures and description of the unit were spot on. It was clean and well-maintained. There was plenty of room for our group of five. The views from both inside and outside on the patio were magnificent! Although there was construction in the area, it was never a bother. The mosquitos were a nuisance, but a service came on Thursday to spray outside the unit and, after that, they were not a problem. In fact, Richard informed us at the end of our stay that they had just started the bug spray service so the mosquitos shouldn’t be a problem for future guests. Regardless, the bugs did not prevent us from enjoying the beautiful views.
The location of the unit was perfect, near to everything. Having security at the entrance day and night was an unexpected bonus. We felt safe at all times. Kokomos Restaurant was not open during our stay, but should be opening very soon if it hasn’t already. Of course, there were plenty of restaurants to choose from with only a very short 5-10 minute drive.
If you want to call or text people back home or even call or text Patricia or Richard, you can use Skype or Viber from your cell phones using the WiFi at the house. We used Viber and it worked wonderfully!
Should you be considering renting Villa Vita, we would definitely recommend it to anybody. It is a little slice of paradise!"

"My wife and I have vacationed three times in Grand Case (including the Grand Case Beach Club, which [although beautiful] was quite expensive and a ten minute walk out of town), and this was certainly best of the three stays. The apartment is beautiful and well appointed, with a terrace overlooking the water. Fresh baguettes looking out at the beach in the morning, and stunning sunsets sipping on a fresh rose before dinner every day. Doesn't get better! The location couldn't have been better either, right in town and directly on the beach. At least a dozen or more excellent restaurants within a two to five minute walk from the apartment, and several groceries and bakeries minutes away. Plenty of botiques and art galleries if shopping is your pleasure. Anna, the caretaker was really friendly, and very helpful. She set up lounge chairs and umbrellas on the beach for us, called taxis for us on several occasions, and was always around for assistance and advise. We would not hesitate to reccommend staying here, and will certainly be back ourselves."
