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!"

Amazing house with spectacular views! Best experience in St Maarten!
"My husband and I spent two amazing weeks in the Villa Vita at Indigo Bay.
Almost every night we sat by the pool watching the Sunset enjoying this beautiful bay.
The house is brand new, fully equipped and the pictures on VRBO shows well the perfect accommodation and views. Even having the development in progress with some construction, we had no issue with noise because the area is big and the building in construction is at the other side of the bay. The beach is very private with a wonderful beach bar & restaurant Kokomos.
The development has 24 hrs security and during the entire time we were there we saw the security cars around the development checking all places every hr during the night.
Very central at the Dutch side, close to all restaurants, Simpson Bay and Philipsburg as well. The owners are very nice couple from USA that moved to the Island one year ago and gave us all information and support we needed to boat trip, restaurants and activities.
If you come St Maarten you need a car, because it is a mountain Island that you can't walk between places. Also is nice to be able to go around the different beaches in your car. Taxis are very expensive there.
Definitely we will be back next year to Vila Vita!"

"This is the second time I have rented from VBRO in St Maarten. This was a great until and a great value! Perfect and tons of privacy for 2 couples. I would stay here again in a heartbeat
Views- ground and second floor- Incredible!
Beds- the most comfortable ever! Last place I rented was way more high end but the beds were uncomfortable. This bed and feather pillows made my trip
Ocean- Some say you have to walk down a way to get into the water. Not true. Some parts look like rocks but are actually just plants and you can walk right in
Hurricane shutters- We felt secure at night with these things closed. They also made the room fairly dark. I have realized that rentals on VBRO don't believe in block out shades. We stayed in Anguilla before we came here and no block out shades/shutters meant they room was unbelievably bright at 6am. People want to sleep in on vacation, right?
Gordon- Great property mgr. Even left us some goodies at arrival (water and beer) Thanks Gordon!
Phones- Free cell phone so people at home can call you at no charge, and the VOIP phone in the condo meant we could call home at no charge
The only, and I mean only con I had for this property was that the internet is really, really slow. If you need to be connected or have teenagers with you that need to be connected, you might want to chose another rental. We really struggled with this
PS. Worst meal was Karataker (beach bar you can walk to) Last time I was in SXM I tried it out and it was the same. Don't go.....cool atmosphere but the food isn't good. Don't know why so many people recommend it
- Pizza Galley- Simpson Bay. Best Pizza I have ever had
- Izi- Great Italian in Simpson Bay- Try their mix and match pastas and sauces
- Crave- Great gourmet food in Simpson bay. Casual but elegant
- Best beach bars (Buccaneer in Simpson bay and Rainbow Cafe in Grand Case)
- Best Bakery- Cafe Atlantico- You can walk to it. They also serve full breakfast and amazing and cheap sandwiches"
