About Fantasea

We are a family of 5 and absolutely love the caribbean! We handle all bookings ourselves and try our best for all guests to have a great experience. We also have a home in Nassau, Bahamas, click on all my listings to take a look

Fantasea purchased this villa in 2014

Why Fantasea chose St Maarten

As soon as we saw the views we were hooked and the old garden in the house, breath taking. 21 coconut trees in the yard! You can see St. Barts from the house! The views just blow you away. Not only is the house beachfront, has a really large mature garden, but also has the expansive views because it is on a hill.

What makes this villa unique

Yes there are many homes in St Maarten not many that are beachfront and you can walk to the beach. Westin is right next door with all the amenities of a 5 star resort

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

I was excited to invite 9 friends to celebrate a big birthday and wanted to stay somewhere we could all be together not in separate motel rooms. Wow! what a great time with plenty of room for everyone, plus! What more could you ask for with a pool, Jacuzzi, and steps to your private beach! It doesn't get any better than that. Everyone was impressed with my pick.

Isla was great greeting us and giving us all the information we needed to have a great experience. I don't think the pictures justify the experience you will have! Can't wait to go back.

Family of 13!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property with pool, hot tub and beach! Patio was enormous for outside

gathering and sunrises! Home is large and well cared for! Our family of 13 had tons of room to hang together inside and out. Each room had its own bathroom suite! Great location with alot of close activities! Beach, yard and Patio gave kids a lot of roaming room! Property comes with daily housekeeper (which was wonderful)! The best home we have rented! It was truly an amazing vacation!!

Beautiful Home, Fantastic Host!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 had an absolutely amazing experience with a Sonal. Everything was cleaned, easy to access and breathtakingly beautiful. Would recommend to anyone looking for an easy and relaxing retreat.

Owner's Response: Many thanks Kevin for your wonderful review. We love to hear that our goal of providing a relaxing vacation to guests was met. Having Isla doing daily housekeeping is so helpful. It's even better than staying at a hotel. You get better pricing than hotels. You also have someone who makes the beds daily, helps with the laundry, keep the floors clean, do the dishes. We look forward to you coming back, Sonal

Beautiful house, great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at FantaSea! We were a group of 15 people and the house is so spacious that it was totally comfortable. We loved the pool, the hot tub, the BBQ, the private beach access, the outdoor shower... Isla the housekeeper was really helpful and great to have around. Highly recommended - hopefully we can come back someday!

Beach front perfection!!

  • 5 of 5

This started out to be a 30th wedding anniversary trip but when our kids saw the pictures they were wishing they were coming so we turned it into a family vacation and brought our two kids and their spouses. When we arrived the house keeper was there to welcome us and show us how everything worked. The pool, hot tub, beach and local eateries were all top notch. Walking next door to the Westin resort to get a beverage at the beach bar was another plus. The house is better than the pictures can even portray. We will be back to this home and it can accommodate lots of people. Six of us only utilized half the house. The owner , the house keeper and the Poolman were all great and easy to work with. We chartered a boat one day from the marina at the bottom of the hill and spent the day snorkeling and swimming around remote islands. If you are a foodie you will be in heaven. Not only are big time chefs in the area, small unassuming places served excellent food at a reasonable price. The trip was everything we hoped for and more.

Owner's Response: Bob, 30th wedding anniversary is a great milestone to celebrate. The fact that you got to celebrate with your kids is priceless! Glad that the photo's enticed them to come. We are blessed to have so many great guests come and share our home. We look forward to you coming back. Regards, Sonal

Sad we had to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time booking a home, we were quite worried. We shouldn't have been.

The host and the house keeper made the whole process seamless and a vacation of a lifetime!

The house is great, the location is nice, the beach is quite and secluded enough.

The house was clean and had all the amenities we could want.

Loved the decor, the huge deck, we enjoyed a few glasses of vino.

We loved all the shopping on the french side. Better than the usual caribbean straw markets.

Got a lot of spices back from Marigot.

We would come back in a heart beat!!

Great value.

Owner's Response: Rachel, Glad you were able to enjoy our home, many of our guests come for celebrating special occasions. We try our best to give you all the answers prior to your arrival. Yes, Marigot has many special spice blends that have taken over my personal kitchen as well. Looking forward to you coming to our home in Nassau soon as well. Sincerely, Sonal
