Recent St Maarten reviews

  • More than we had imagined possible

    "My husband and I arrived at this beautiful villa for the 2nd week of our 2 week vacation stay in June 2013. Joelle had left a note for us to call, as she didn't know what time to expect us. She arrived right away, and showed us through the fantastic villa, explaining everything as she went. She very thoughtfully stocked the fridge with all of the essentials, which came in very handy. We loved the incredible views, and the villa was simply magnificent. The pool with the lights that changed colors was quite a surprise as well. The openness of the villa was great, and since the gate was locked, we just left everything open, even at night. The kitchen was well stocked, though I would suggest the addition of a blender (more of an American thing, as we like our frozen drinks). Shower was incredible, and all linens, etc. were good quality. Our only issues were that we had problems with the safe now working, and were not made aware of the location of the washer/dryer, so we did not get to use either. Joelle and Tony's granddaughter was sick and in the hospital at the time, so we did not want to bother them to ask. Looking forward to another great stay as soon as possible. Thank you again for your hospitality!"

  • What a wonderful start to our honeymoon

    "We are so happy to have had the chance to stay at Villa Sara Bella. The private pool directly on the water was so relaxing. It offers US phone service, this was a very good choice for us, as we needed to use this service due to family emergency in the US while we were away. Without this, we would have had to end our vacation and go home early. The remoteness away from the bars and restaurants was wonderful for us. Being remote means we needed to drive to them. You will need to rent a car when you rent this property. All of the appliances worked very well. Preparing for our trip, Janet the property owner was quick to respond and we truly thank her for all she did for us. Constance was a wonderful addition to the property. She came a few times to clean and we got to talk with her quite a bit. She is such a wonderful person and gave us excellent advice on what to see and when. She helped us avoid the crowds! Some of the restaurants recommended in the guest book were great, but one that is highly recommended everywhere, turned out to be a huge disappointment. If you find yourself bored in St Maarten, St Maarten is not the problem. There is way too much to do there to be bored. Villa Sara Bella is in an excellent location to serve as a base to get out and enjoy all St Maarten has to offer you. If you don't want to go anywhere, you will find yourself relaxing in or near your private pool. We had a wonderful time and we can't want to schedule another trip in the future."

  • Exceptional view, perfect host.

    "My wife and I have been to St. Maarten many times but we've always stayed on the Dutch side. For this trip my wife wasn't coming so I decided to try the French side. This condo proved to be the perfect spot for a great vacation. To begin with, Jay is the perfect owner/host. He has great communication and, in addition, provides a wealth of information about the condo, the local restaurants and shops, places of interest, the entire island. Following Jay's suggestion, I ate at several restaurants I'd never been to and they were exceptional. Make sure to try Le Cottage and Bacchus...tell them Jay sent you and you'll get phenominal treatment. The view from the condo is unsurpassed. You're looking out the glass door across the Caribbean to Anguilla. The condo itself felt safe and quiet. You can go out the back and walk down the beach to a variety of restaurants. The back bedroom is a little tight and and has a pullout sofa but since I was alone, I used it to store my luggage. That bedroom does get a little street noise but it's not bad. The front bedroom gets the sound of the surf lapping on the beach. The condo isn't huge but plenty big for 2-4 people. The kitchen has everything you need. If you have any challenges you can call Anna, the property manager and she's minutes away. I had zero problems during my stay. My thanks to Jay for a wonderful time. I hope to return soon."

  • THE PERFECT CHOICE

    "To all the outstanding reviews submitted by those privileged to enjoy this truly fantastic island home, we say a hearty AMEN ! For our family gathering of ten, six adults and four grandsons age 15 to 6 , a more perfect place to spend a memorable week would be hard to imagine. Our delightful odyssey began with the unending pre-arrival assistance graciously offered by the home's ever accommodating owners , Bob and Polly. No question or concern went unaddressed. How helpful it was to know that they were willing to regularly go above and beyond to respond to whatever we asked. WOW is the first word that comes to mind when , upon arrival , we explored all Villa Bougainvillea has to offer . What is depicted in the photos and more awaited us. You really must experience this abode personally to grasp fully it's beauty and splendor. We never tired of soaking up the incredible vistas that this hillside dwelling provides from each and every room and deck . We found the location to be ideal , close and convenient to everything we wanted to visit. A better home base for those who like to explore or a more blissful place to simply chill out and relax would be hard to find. Take your pick or blend the two. We thoroughly enjoyed the Dawn Beach/ Oyster Pond environs but also ventured out to Orient Beach, Pinel Island, Grand Case, Marigot and Simpson Bay . Whatever one's preference, VB is the perfect launching pad from which to begin. Rather than repeat what others have already said about their stay here, we simply offer the following thought for you to ponder - if you are looking for an outstanding, top of the line home to rent on a beautiful, fun-filled tropical island, that will treat you and yours to an unforgettable sojourn, look no further. Villa Bougainvillea will not disappoint."

St Maarten Travel Tips

St. Maarten Resorts Present a Personal Holiday

Do you want a personal stay, where it feels like the owners have set everything up just for you? If you want a kitchen for home-cooked meals, a centrally located home, and the sunrise outside your bedroom window then St. Maarten lodging is precisely what you need. Act now as every year, more and more people find the little gem that holds St. Maarten resorts. You will have your pick of St. Maarten rentals along the coastline on Antilles.

The Antilles and St. Maarten Lodging

Antilles is a large island in the Caribbean waiting to greet you with perfect St. Maarten rentals. The island is owned by the French and the Dutch which peacefully share the land. St. Maarten is the Dutch side of Antilles, which is also the smaller portion of the landmass. The French spelling of St. Maarten is St. Martin, which helps you locate the proper St. Maarten lodging when you plan your vacation. The climate at St. Maarten resorts is a sunny and balmy 80 degrees Fahrenheit virtually year-round, so you can visit at any time of year.

St. Maarten Rentals near Ruby Bute’s Studio

A true delight for many vacationers to St. Maarten rentals is visiting Ruby Bute, one of the most famous island artists. She creates botanical landscapes and images of island life through her paintings and poetry. Her studio and gallery are open in Marigot, north of downtown near Friar’s Bay. You might want to call first to make sure she is welcoming visitors for the day you plan the trip, and bring local currency to come home with one of her reasonably priced prints.

Island Gambling at St. Maarten Resorts

St. Maarten lodging is conveniently located near the island’s 12 casinos. All of these casinos are located on the Dutch side and with gaming in the European mode. Spend your late nights inside the St. Maarten resorts' casinos, and your days along the various beaches.
