About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Once upon a time Dutch Queen stayed in two adjacent villas (one was Villa Moderna) during her royal visit to Sint Maarten. Since then this stunning villa underwent extensive renovation in 2014 and was offered for rent early in 2015 for the first time. Totally beautiful, privately owned, fully air-conditioned 2,400 sq.ft. (250 sq.m.) oceanfront villa is located right on the beach. It has all the amenities one could wish for including private pool at the covered front balcony. The privacy and the beauty of this Villa are unsurpassed. Maximum occupancy is six persons.

Park your cars in the gated, covered parking garage (there is space for two cars) and a few steps away you enter another world: spectacular open-concept living room/dining room/ kitchen area with breath-taking views of the Caribbeans and the islands of Saba, Statia, and St. Kitts.

Pass by a contemporary kitchen and peak into the refrigerator/wine cellar, make a stop at the bar and proceed to the living/dining room welcoming you with the beauty and convenience of a luxury accommodation. The living room has 50' smart TV with easy access to Netflix and Platinum package cable channels, the DVD player and the sound system to create the experience of a movie theater.

The fully equipped kitchen will impress you with beautiful quartz counters, island, and a modern bar for convenient dining.

The dramatic stairs will glass railings will lead you to 2 almost identical bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, flat screen TVs, and access to the balcony with stunning unobstructed views of the Caribbean and the island of Saba. Each bedroom has an over sized closet on the way to the modern bathrooms.

There is a full bathroom and a separate laundry room on the ground floor.

The living room has a sectional sofa sleeper which can be used to sleep two people separately, or can be converted into a king size sofa sleeper.

Villa Moderna is privately owned and operated, however all the amenities of the Beach Club are available, including the activities desk with concierge, Olympic size pool with an island and gardens, gym, and car rental desk. Cupecoy Beach is within 5 min walking. You can also walk to Citrus restaurant and Atlantis Casino with all its restaurants. Just after that is the Mullet Bay Golf Course. It will take you 7 min to walk to the Blue Mall and Porto Cupecoy with its restaurants and gourmet Grocery store.The airport is about 15 minutes by car. It is about the same 15 minutes by car to southeast and Marigot, the French side capital, and to Philipsbourg.

About Anna

I like to travel and I like to share my 3 vacation houses with my guests hoping they will enjoy them as much as I do. All three of my vacation properties are close to the body of water: the Ocean Colony development in Half Moon Bay, California, the shores of Lake Tahoe in California, and the latest one is right on the beach in Dutch side of St. Martin island in Caribbeans.

Anna purchased this villa in 2014

Why Anna chose St Maarten

If Dutch Royal family chose this location then you can not go wrong. These days it is practically impossible to find a property of exceptional quality and with a private pool on the balcony right on the private beach . Villa Moderna will exceed your expectations.

What makes this villa unique

Everything is absolutely new with high end furniture and total renovation with a modern style. On a private beach, with a private pool you can treat yourself and your family and friends as royalty. Short distance to all parts of the island.

Dutch Royalty's choice beachfront Villa in Cupecoy Bay, Sint Maarten
average rating of 5.0 based on 11 reviews

We had an amazing time staying in the elegant modern place overlooking the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

The place was very easy to find and instructions provided by the owner were very precise. Kitchen and bathrooms had everything that was needed and made us feel at home. Easy access to the beach and walking distance to shopping and restaurants make it the stay very enjoyable. Kids loved variety of cable channels. The property is immaculately maintained where every small detail was thought through by owners. We loved it.

We have just returned from a week at this villa, and simply put, it was fantastic. My husband, daughter and I enjoyed the privacy, the plunge pool, and all of the amenities. A modern yet comfortable place with everything you need for a luxury vacation. Large terrace from both bedrooms that overlook the sea. The concierge at Sapphire is at your disposal, including tour desk, car rental and nightly entertainment. You could walk 10 minutes to hit restaurants and groceries. We ventured out to St. Barts for a day, but could not wait to return to Villa 8! Anna was a pleasure to deal with, attentive to any questions. Thank you Anna!

Took my breath away when I walked into this Villa

  • 5 of 5

I spent an unforgettable week after Thanksgiving at Anna's Dutch Royalty's Villa.

I remember that first moment when I walked into this place and opened the shades to the patio overlooking the ocean. The beauty and serenity of this place made me instantly happy and peaceful.

The magic remained with me for the entire stay. The Villa is so comfortable and thoughtfully designed that nothing disturbs your peace of mind and makes a vacation truly relaxing. It tastefully decorated, with beautiful lighting, quiet air conditioning and contemporary upscale facilities. Bedrooms are large, all with ocean view, comfortable beds and plenty of dressers. Bathrooms are spacious and renovated with the most upscale European fixtures. Each bedroom has a private patio.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all tools a cook might need. But for me the pleasure of vacation is to rest from cooking and enjoy the variety of local cuisine. The Villa is centrally located with only a short driving distance to fabulous French restaurants and shopping areas.

Swimming on the island is fantastic, but what makes this place special is that you don’t need to go or drive anywhere. You walk 10 feet from the front door to plunge into the ocean.

My favorite place in the Villa was the main patio with the pool. In the evenings we would sit there sipping cocktails and enjoying spectacular sunsets, then would go out for dinner and would end our day swimming in the pool before going to bed.

There are some places you may want to visit just once, but really don’t feel the pull to come back. Dutch Royalty's Villa is one of the few places I would go back in the heart beat!

Right choice to make your family happy!

  • 5 of 5

We spend 7 unforgettable days at Villa 8. We loved everything about this place.

Elegant contemporary modern house decor with room accessories, furniture. Luxurious dream!

What stood out to us the most was attention to details and amenities making out stay a pleasure and unbelievable value. Everything you read about this villa is true and when you see it is even more impressive. Both bedrooms and living room had a spectacular ocean view. Morning coffee on the balcony next to pool... Walking distance to the beach and to the Blue Mall plaza with all you may need - restaurants, gourmet Grocery store, live music concerts, movie night under the stars.

Arrangements with the owner were easy and the owner is a pleasure to deal with.

Looking forward to coming back!

Thank you

Maagnificent time in paaraadise

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 lovely days, 5 nights, in St. Maarten. One of the largest highlights of our trip was our stay at the beautiful and luxurious Villa 8. The views and location are ideal on top of the safety and security of the neighborhood and surrounding area. From the balcony you can see an unobstructed view of the lovely Cupecoy beach which is 5 minutes away by foot. The house was ideal for our family of 3 adults with room to fit 6, with enough bathrooms, closet space and living space for everyone. The villa was well equipped with all the necessary kitchen utensils and equipment which we used daily. The appliances and facilities are high end. The house has as a very modern and contemporary feel, it was very livable, functional and homey – fit for Royalty. We enjoyed the open concept space since it allowed our family to gather together communally but perform different activities at the same time. One family member could swim on the patio, while the others watched TV, cooked dinner, etc. The house also comes with a washer/dryer which can be helpful for families with younger children and those staying for longer periods of time. We were able to enjoy the best of both worlds with since the villa is tucked away, yet very accessible to the hotel amenities and beaches. The owner is very responsive and pleasure to deal with. Our family enjoyed our time in paradise and is looking forward to coming back! - JoseD

Incredible stay in St. Maarten!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time to St. Maarten and we were blown away by Villa 8. First class accomodations in every way. We loved the outdoor area with the private patio and pool. Beyond the patio the ocean is right there. Incredible views and sunsets every night.

The villa is very luxurious and is well stocked with everything that you could need. The bedrooms are both very well done with incredible ensuites. The pictures of villa 8 are amazing and when you walk in you are still blown away with how wonderful everything is.

Arrangements with the owner were easy and she was very accomodating to our changing travel plan. Thanks so much and we will be back one day!
