Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

I had a fabulous week at this caribbean villa. There are spectacular views from each window of the house. This villa could be placed in a Caribbean Magazine. It is so magnificent. This home has all the comforts of home plus the extra amenities that everyone would want of a dream vacation spot. There is top notch security and outstanding comforts throughout. I have already reserved my vacation week for next year. This exclusive gated community is one of the nicest on the island.I would not look any further for a vacation spot.This one tops them all!!!

Girlfriend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

St. Maarten was delightful for a group of friends. The patio and pool have beautiful views as does every window in the very lovely sprawling home. Great areas for gathering but special quiet places for privacy. All amenities were provided. The house manager, Ursula, is amazing.

The Jewel of the Carribean

  • 5 of 5

My first time to place myself in this jewel . This was the luxury supreme experience. The ocean views are spectacular!!! Heaven on earth every day . The housekeeper Ursula easily became our real treasure. She was spot on taking care of our requests and needs. Need to be pampered, spoiled and living the paradise life this is the place to call home. Traveled with six awesome girlfriends , celebrated our friendship , relaxed on the beaches and created many special memories. Cannot get any better !!! Go for it as you will be overwhelmed by the beauty and opportunity to enjoy paradise at its finest .

Exquisite villa on top of Tamarind Hill

  • 5 of 5

I come to this villa at least once a year. Its location is perfect for views across the water and amenities.

The name "Jewel "describes it to a tee from fabulous sunrises and sunsets, spacious master suites and bathrooms, upgraded granite and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen to infinity pool. This villa is luxury to the upmost degree. Having a housekeeper Ursula and a groundskeeper completes the attraction.
