Welcome to Villa Sea Watch, an elegant Mediterranean villa with Caribbean décor. Nearly 3000 square feet of Caribbean open views with a private pool and patio sitting above the ocean, giving amazing views of St. Barts, St. Kitts and St. Eustatius. Villa Sea Watch has three bedrooms, three and a half baths, an outdoor, pool-side shower, and is newly remodeled, inside and out. Private, private, private! Caribbean splendor describes Villa Sea Watch, enveloped by lush tropical gardens, plenty of private parking, and every room enjoys ocean views. Every bedroom is en suite and has its own private balcony overlooking the sea.
Note: We only charge our guests for the number of bedrooms used and/or number of people you have in your party. See the rates below for more information. This owner's listing provides actual guest comments and feedback. No other listing for OUR property has this important information to help with your vacation planning decision.
The whole villa is yours, whether one person or six.
The beautiful island of St. Maarten/St. Martin is busy rebuilding after Irma. As of early April 2018, more than 100 restaurants on the French side and 85% of the restaurants on the Dutch side are open providing their world-famous cuisine. Many businesses are open to greet you with their island friendliness and excellent deals. Search the internet for more information on how strong SXM is in its recovery. There you will find recent videos and photos of how much progress is complete. Contact me for more information on these web sites and a list of currently open restaurants.
A trip to St. Maarten/St. Martin during 2018 will not be the same as earlier times. The beaches in 2018 will be far less crowded, and you may have to pack beach towels (provided at Villa Sea Watch) to enjoy the sun, sand, and crystal clear water. Some lolos are open on the most popular beaches and others are busy rebuilding. It will truly be a trip of fun and discovery and you will have your run of the island. Now is a rare opportunity to experience St. Maarten/St. Martin beaches as they were in earlier times, before they became crowded. Remember your first trip to the island? You didn’t have a favorite beach or a favorite restaurant, but you discovered it. A trip in 2018 may take you to your old favorites or you might very well find new ones. Pack your camera and post your photos to share with others curious about how the island is recovering!!!
After a day’s exploration, return to your personal luxury accommodations to enjoy the best the Caribbean offers. The peace and serenity of Sea Watch are so very welcome. Party or relax and refresh yourself in the pool perched on the cliff's edge. The full service wet bar is right next to the patio! Make yourself a frozen drink, turn on the stereo, sit on a lounge and relax with the awesome ocean views. Enjoy outdoor dining with unbeatable ambiance. This is THE location for a cheeseburger in paradise!! Al fresco dining is easy, too, with our fully equipped gourmet kitchen with granite and stainless steel appliances and gas stove! Or enjoy grilling fresh seafood or steaks on the patio with the spectacular views all around you, the sound of the surf and a wonderfully warm breeze. If al fresco dining is not your preference, the large formal dining room and sunny casual dining area both overlook the sea. All dining areas enjoy breathtaking views. Afterwards, relax and enjoy the peace and thrill of stargazing. Shooting stars are common from Sea Watch's patio. And for those who love the night sky, you can see hundreds of constellations. My personal favorite is the Southern Cross found close to the horizon in the southern sky from late November (in the early morning) to the early June (in the early evening). If you enjoy star gazing, consider installing an app such as StarMap 3D on your smart phone. That will help you locate all the sky’s objects, including satellites. The sky is awe inspiring!
PRIVACY is created by your own tropical gardens of palm trees, fig trees and bougainvillea that envelop one side of the patio and wrap around the rest of the villa. Tropical gardens and the turquoise sea will mesmerize you! Privacy is also afforded by the cul-de-sac from which VSW is accessed. Your unparalleled views are the Caribbean blue ocean, St. Barts and the tropical paradise. The ambient sounds are the lull of the surf and the sugarbirds in the morning. Morning and evening walks are lovely as well in our friendly neighborhood.
There are large flat screen televisions in the Living Room and Master Bedroom; but there's no entertainment quite like star gazing over the ocean, watching shooting stars or the full moon over the water or counting the many constellations you can see. There's free cable TV, Wi-Fi, high speed internet, cell phone, high quality linens, beach towels, coolers for the beach, airport/car rental meeting with our local agent who will escort you to Villa Sea Watch, and will give you keys and show you how everything works. You will be greeted on arrival with a wine/beer and imported cheese-and-crackers basket to show how welcome you are. There's a large full service wet bar in the living room right off the patio... how convenient! And guests often leave liquors in the bar, as well as beer in the bar refrigerator (I never understand how this can possibly happen!) Make a drink and sit by, or in, the pool and watch St. Barts or the occasional dolphins. Our ocean-front pool patio is a blast... or you could just relax with a book and listen to the surf. Or enjoy the constant breeze and nap. The possibilities are endless.
Villa Sea Watch is THE location for those who want to get away from it all. But a short drive to the French side or the Dutch side of the island puts you in the middle of almost anything you might imagine.
