About Daphne Firth

My husband is retired and I still work in the private equity business. We hope to gradually spend more time at the house as I get closer to retirement. We are thrilled with our vacation home which we built in 2004 - our kids (now 26 and 28) have spent many memory filled spring breaks at this wonderful villa.

Daphne Firth purchased this villa in 2004

Why Daphne Firth chose Dawn Beach

We loved St. Martin because of its international flavor and european feel. Wonderful French restaurants, warm friendly people, easy flight connections and dependably beautiful weather

What makes this villa unique

To us, our house is Viking Heaven - hence the name. We still are amazed by the views and our French architect did some amazing things with the lighting and design to make this house warm, relaxing and very comfortable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Daphne,

Just a quick note to tell you that we had a wonderful time

at Valhalla. Everything was just great.

Catherine was so nice as well.

You have a beautiful house there. You should be enjoying it more yourself!

I won’t hesitate to call you the next time we are planning a vacation.

Thank you for everything.

The house is very well kept up and was plenty of room for the 6 of us! The views were breathtaking! We were very happy with the overall experience and would highly recommend this property to first time visitors!

Relaxing and gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Daphne's villa. All of us had our own room and plenty of privacy. The view of the ocean and St. Bart's was breath taking. We walked down to the Westin Hotel twice and played in the casino and had dinner there. Ken, the property manager was very helpful during our stay and gave us a history lesson of St.Martin. We would highly recommend this property to friends and family.

Another Great Week at Villa Valhalla!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to St Maarten and Villa Valhalla. It gets better every time! Working with Daphne is a pleasure. She was working over seas and followed up and responded as if she was 10 minutes away. We never have any problems at Villa Valhalla. The home is better than the pictures! Great property, great owner, equals great time! We travel at least two times or more each year and this is our favorite villa to stay in! Catherine is always a pleasure to have and makes you feel at home. We took the children scuba diving at Grand Case this trip and will be returning within the year to get them certified. If you're going to St. Maarten, this is the villa to get!

We booked Villa Valhalla for a week as just a couple and WOW! There's so much to say, but will try to cover the highlights. We have been all over the Caribbean and this is the first time we really had no motivation to leave the house - for only good reasons! The house is extremely comfortable, well appointed, and has the most unbelievable panoramic view. The house and location are the perfect balance of being completely isolated to being close to all of the amenities of the island (beach, shopping, restaurants, etc). The pool is great for both lounging and doing short laps, and was the perfect temperature - a rare find. Although there is no air conditioning in the main living space, it does not need it (bedrooms have it). With the sliders open, the cross breeze through the house makes hanging out inside perfectly comfortable. The shade on the patio also provides plenty of relief from the sun. Being in a gated community was not an important factor for us, but does add piece of mind. Catherine and Ken (the local hosts) were extremely helpful in regards to answering questions and just all around good company for the week. They prepared an incredible four-course meal one of our nights there while we enjoyed the view from the outdoor dining area. The dinner was WELL WORTH THE PRICE. It was hands down the best meal we had on the island all week, and we had plenty of leftovers. Daphne was also very helpful in answering any questions prior to the trip - very responsive. This was hands down the easiest, most comfortable, beautiful, and convenient property we've visited. If we ever make it back to St.Maarten, we'll definitely be back!

Best Vrbo I've been to

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 couples and everybody had plenty of space of there own and living area/kitchen was equally spacious. Ken met us at the car rental and guide us to the villa where Catherine gave us a tour of the property. They cooked a meal for us one night and was well worth the money, with plenty of leftovers. The alignment of the house allow blocking of the afternoon breezes making hanging out around the pool very enjoyable . Easy walk to the Westin and beach below. Be careful of the 2 couches in the living area, they are so comfortable you met never want to get up. We have used VRBOs for years and this was the best experience so far

Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family of 8 spent the week of 2/14/16 at Villa Valhalla and could not have picked a better place!

Let me start with the Villa. We thought the pictures listed on VRBO were great and let me say that they do not do the house justice. The Villa is very spacious and easily accommodated the 8 of us and had a great Caribbean vibe. We could come together to hang or dine both inside or out easily as well as find separate space when we wanted it. The furniture is very comfortable and the villa has all the conveniences and amenities you would expect at a high end resort. The 2 upstairs bedroom suites were large and comfortable and opened up onto the pool deck with killer views of Dawn Beach.

We also thought the location was perfect located on the Dutch side but extremely close to the French side with great dining in Grande Case 15 minutes away. We took advantage of the Westin property several times. As advertised, it is a 5 minute walk from the villa and you can use their pool with the swim up bar as well as get lounge chairs and umbrellas free. We also walked down to the casino a couple of nights. It was really easy to get to anywhere on the island from this location.

Catherine and Ken are fantastic and go out their way to make you feel comfortable! Ken met us at the airport and offered to stop at a grocery store on the way to the villa so that we could stock up food and drinks. Both he and Catherine made recommendations of things to do and places to eat; take their advice! We also had Catherine cook us a delicious Caribbean meal for us one night. Daphne also made some great recommendations for dining and day trips (Don't miss Captain Alan's 6 hour boat trip) while planning our trip.

All in all, a truly great vacation! We can't wait to return.
