About Bob Capps

Polly and I built VB for our own personal use to entertain friends and relatives. Now retired, we spend a large amount of time on SM, and try and keep our home in immaculate condition with a full-time Manager, Housekeeper, Gardener and "'living'" in our large pool, and climbing the trail of rock behind our home for panoramic views of the scenery- we call it "'Pelican's Perch'". We virtually live in bathing suits, and even when we go out for dinner, the attire is very casual here- which we love!

Let us prove to you what we can do to make sure you have a fabulous vacation!

Bob Capps purchased this house in 2006

Why Bob Capps chose Oyster Pond

Dawn Beach Estates has a nice breeze all year, and it is very convenient to the French side, for the best beaches and restaurants-with only a 10 minute drive!

However, we ususally dine out in the evening right here in Oyster Pond because of the convenience and wide variety of exqusite food. Even the pizzas,

which can be delivered are excellent! We never tire of watching the Moorings and Sunsail charter fleets coming and going out of Oyster Pond.

And at night, the lights of the village and distant Islands are stunning! We do a lot

of star watching too, because the air is so pure and clear- just beautiful! And it's only a short distance to drive or walk down to the Beach and not even leave Dawn Beach Estates- and the Westin offers several restaurants, , casino, and spa. Lots

of things to do if you get bored with the serentiy of our home!

What makes this house unique

I'm so glad we installed stereo speakers in every room of the house- even by the pool. You can play your I-Pod, and bring your favorite CD's and have music throughout the house and pool. And our fitness room is first class with wall mirrors, rubber flooring,

built in tv, hand weights, stair stepper, eliptical and other equipment. And the pool is large enough to swim laps for a cool down after a good workout. Our TV room is seperate and has a large sectional sofa with wetbar and 60' TV. We have Cable TV and receive most of the US channnels. Wi-Fi is almost everywhere.

We cook a lot and the kitchen has just about everything you would need! We now have access to a private cook who will come in and prepare a gourmet meal for your group.

We like the boating available down at Oyster Pond, and can also put you in touch with the best boating for visits to Baarts, Pinel, Tintamare or Anguilla-

a great day on the water with captain and mate.

Our home also has a complete security system with ADT.

An Excellent New Year's Week

  • 5 of 5

This review is late, but not because we didn't have a wonderful week. (Life got in the way). Our group of six adults and four kids had such a fun week at Bob's house, and Bob was, far and away, the most helpful and informative owner we have ever encountered. (We've rented 20 or 25 houses in the past 15 years.)

The main living floor had plenty of space for our group -- dining, reading, hanging out. There was a lot of wind the week we were there, so we didn't eat any of our meals outside, but we didn't really miss it because the large, open space was a pleasure to be in, and the breeze through the house was lovely. (I imagine the wind is seasonal.) We spent plenty of time around the pool during the day, though, and didn't mind the wind then at all.

The bedrooms and beds were very comfortable, and one of the women in the group stayed in the downstairs apartment, which was fine. Perhaps not quite as nice as the main bedrooms, but not an afterthought in comfort or design, either. She worried she might feel isolated there, but didn't.

We loved everything about the house and our week there!

12 Girls and a Guy

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great VRBO experience

  • 5 of 5

Great for family or families, plenty of room for sleeping and gathering. Great indoor and outdoor spaces. Well appointed, well constructed house with all the amenities of home, and then some! Was great for our family with grown kids, considering a couples trip at a different time of year. great for 5 couples, plenty of king beds and bathrooms for all. Pretty much have to drive everywhere, which was not an issue for us...or just hang by the pool. Quiet area of the island which we like, but really close to everything. will gladly recommend to others, hope to return! Bob was easy to deal with.. zero hassles and totally responsive to our needs, which were very few.

Wonderful Home on beautiful, friendly St. Maarten/St. Martin

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to St. Maarten and we traveled with our two children, ages 14 and 8, along with another couple and their 8 year old son. The island is amazing and the views are spectacular from Villa Bougainvillea, Dawn Beach below, Tintamarre to the left, St. Bart's to the right! This home has all the comforts of home and then some. The kitchen is perfect, the pool, porches and decks divine, you never want to go inside. Bob and Polly will give you great tips and information about the island before you ever depart, this makes the trip so much more enjoyable. The house is well equipped for everything you need, beach towels, masseuse on call, wine storage, martini shaker, elevator for the large items. Claudette, the housekeeper, is wonderful and comes over every other day. No need to over pack, you have a full sized washer and dryer available. I recommend renting a jeep as the roads are a little rough. On Bob's recommendation we rented a catamaran for one day, it was our best day there, PYC is the company and Pierre is the person to contact. It is a beautiful way to see the island and get some great snorkeling in, lunch on Pinel Island was a highlight! This is an excellent place to stay and St. Maarten is a friendly, enjoyable island to visit.

THE PERFECT CHOICE

  • 5 of 5

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.
