About the property

An Italian-architecturally designed villa, Casa Linda is nestled high on the prestigious Oyster Pond hillside. Wake up to the sunrise and Atlantic breezes overlooking St. Barths, Atlantic Ocean, beautiful Dawn Beach, and Oyster Pond Marina. The open floor plan of the kitchen, living, and dining area take full advantage of the view. There is a customized wood bar also off the living/dining area. Float in the private infinity pool surrounded by the sunbathing deck overlooking the spectacular views. Enjoy the view of the sail boats, rainbows, nightly shooting stars, and full moon reflecting on the Atlantic Ocean. Casa Linda is beautifully decorated with the colors and style of the Caribbean.

About Ms. Sam Rigney

We are an active couple who enjoy boating, fishing, and the relaxing Caribbean lifestyle.

Ms. Sam Rigney purchased this villa in 2006

Why Ms. Sam Rigney chose Oyster Pond

After vacationing at Captain Oliver's Resort for a number of years, we made many friends living on the island as well as from other countries. Enjoying the beach, snorkeling, and the spirits of MaDoDo kept urging us to look at houses in Oyster Pond every trip.

What makes this villa unique

Waking to the sunrise overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is a spiritual and serene feeling. Watching a squall in the Atlantic with a rainbow is a beautiful scene. Sitting on the deck at night star gazing and seeing shooting stars is a unique experience.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Casa Linda is spectacular - all that it was advertised to be and more! Talk about the million dollar view - this is it. Just gorgeous. The house is huge, beautifully designed and decorated, clean, appliances all work. Oyster Pond is a great area - things to do but not crowded. All of the local restaurants were wonderful, especially Le Planteur. I'd go back in a second. Capt Alan's snorkeling charters out of the bay are reasonably priced and very enjoyable. I'd go with the Jeep next time, though - the access road to the house is extremely steep. Even that got to be fun after a few days. We even saw a monkey right by the house. You won't be disappointed with this rental!

Exceeded All Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Completely agree with the previous review: this is one of the few times a place turned out to be even better than the photos. Stayed just shy of a week with some friends and it was hard to walk away from the house each day. Amazing views, spacious house, clean, and the pool - the pool is just an incredible addition. We got lots of recommendations from the rental manager and she was very easy to work with, not to mention quick to respond to each inquiry. The property manager was friendly, offered to drive us into town the first night for groceries, and gave us a phone to call him if we needed anything.

Being way up on a hill has the advantage of feeling remote from everything - but it was a short drive to anything we needed. You can walk to bars, beach, restaurants in about 20 mins. Just be prepared for a steep hike back up. But any cab driver can take you up for a few dollars.

Everything about our stay here was perfect. We will definitely stay at Casa Linda when (not if) we go back.

A little bit of heaven perched on a slightly larger piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

To be honest, Casa Linda felt too good to to be true. I kept waiting for the catch. It never came.

This place is simply sensational. And for once, the pictures actually do paint an accurate picture. Casa Linda really does look and feel that good.

It is designed to comfortably accomodate 3 couples. It has three bedrooms with attached double bathrooms.

My wife and our three kids found it more than spacious. It is really well built and designed by an Italian architect for his Dutch client. Therein lies the magic perhaps.

Casa Linda is blessed with a great view of Dawn Beach and, in the distance, St. Barths. The view alone is heavenly. And you'll have a great deck with an infinity pool from which to contemplate this magical vista.

St. Maarten is a small island with a lot of great beaches. You'll figure out the beaches pretty fast. But I have to say, having the option of driving just five minutes to Dawn Beach proved really useful.

Casa Linda is in a gated community. Which is nice and safe. And it's manned 24 hours a day.

That view doesn't come entirely free though. It's a steep climb to Casa Linda, so rent a Jeep type vehicle. Midwestern Americans are in for a really interesting ride! But the view is worth it and it's a fun ride.

Your jeep will also come in handy on the rest of the island. Lots of potholes and speedbumps. it's a small rural island. No highways.

Casa Linda wildly exceeded our already wild expectations. Staying here was easily the best family vacation we have ever had. And we fully hope to be back because why would we do anything else?

Casa Linda is kinda perfect.

Excellent location, fantastic views!

  • 4 of 5

Or group of 4 adults and a 2 year old stayed at this beautiful villa in Feb 2013 for 5 nights. Its the best possible location you can ask for with amazing views of the ocean. We spent a lot of time on the pool deck! All 3 bedrooms are comfortable with nice bathrooms.

Great Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Our second week on the island and moved to a different villa we never stayed before "Villa Casa Linda" We absolutely loved this home. The view is unbelievable! The design of this home and decor is very cool! Loved how everyroom is ocean view and the pool seemed as though it was indoor/outdoor. You could actually get in the pool from inside the villa. Our kids thougth that was really neat. We recommend this villa to any family. You will have a very nice stay here!

Very nice villa and property!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay at Casa Linda. This was our second trip to the island and just love the Oyster Pond area. We wanted a place with a great view. This villa has the most beautiful view I have ever seen. The sunrise every morning was amazing. We had a nice breeze from the ocean with the large sliding doors kept open. The pool was great. Our kids very much enjoyed their stay. The bedrooms were large and private. We loved the house decorations. The beach is just about 2 min away along with a lot of good restaurants. We will stay again our next trip.
