About Kelly

Owner is American, lived in St Maarten for 17 years and spared no expense investing in this property and maintaining as it was a primary home. Moved back to the U.S. for medical/family reasons.

Kelly purchased this villa in 2008

Why Kelly chose St Maarten

With extensive experience in multiple property ownership and developments on the island, we chose this home immediately (before the property was even finished) based on it's outstanding location, structure and luxurious amenities. The house is on the 2nd row overlooking the first row of houses and has a magnificent view, protection from big waves and blowing sand. All the benefits of a beachfront property without the risk and hassle. From the ground floor exit you are 50 yards away from the beach via garden path. Security in this community is outstanding with 24-hour guards, electronic surveillance with additional guards & dogs from dusk to dawn. The island is a safe place, and this community just freed our mind from any worry at all. The sunsets are incredible, especially sipping drinks in the rooftop pool. What can we say, it's just a fabulous home and we're glad to share it with you now that life has taken us back to the States. We lived in this home for 5 years and made sure is was fully up-to-date and well maintained as it was indeed our home, not conceived as a rental property.

What makes this villa unique

Because this was our home, we loaded it up with extra steps like dual (backup) hot water heaters as well as a solar heater on the roof for eco-friendliness. There is triple filtered drinking water from the tap. Island water is fine, but with a compromised immune system in our family we went above and beyond. Stairs are carpeted for comfort. All main windows have electronic storm shutters that are wonderful for blocking out light when you want to sleep in after a long celebratory night out. Enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had an amazing stay at Buttermoon August 17th-23rd! From the moment we arrived, we felt as if we had stepped into a dream. Kelly met us at the house to show us around and get us settled. This home is absolutely perfect with gorgeous views. The house was spotless and well appointed. There is a convenient internet phone for free calls to and from the States. A local cellphone was also provided which made it handy to plan excursions while on the go. The decor is very tasteful and modern. Beds and linens were very luxurious. You will definitely not feel as if you are staying in a rental. The gourmet kitchen has everything you need including a huge walk-in pantry with spices. The master bedroom is on the 4th floor with amazing views. There are 3 other king bedrooms, all are very large and beautifully decorated, each with it’s own large luxury bathroom. We especially liked the sunglasses exhibit in the 2nd floor bedroom. There are so many nice touches throughout the house that really make it an amazing experience. The house is 4 and a half floors with the pool on the uppermost level. There is even an elevator which made bringing your suitcases up four flights a breeze. Beach chairs and towels were ready to go in the garage and some kids snorkel gear was also available. The beach is secluded and nicely nestled between two cliffs. A local snuba outfit ( met us one morning on our beach and took us out diving in our own backyard. It was amazing, we literally walked out the garage, onto the beach, had a 15 minute instruction then were off diving!

There is a great marina across the street with outdoor restaurants and a small gourmet grocery store. Our favorite spot there was Earnest & Fidel’s, best mojito on the island! The owner grows his own sugar canes at his house and soaks them in rum for 24 hours. There is a also a brand new shopping mall across the street with lots of activities for the kids including a haunted house! We rented a car which is a must to explore all that the island has to offer. A short 7 minute drive towards Marigot brings you to 'Le Sand’, a perfect spot for a gourmet lunch right on the beach where they also provide you with a beach chair & umbrella. Other favorite spots were Coco's on the Beach at Orient Bay and Pinel island which is a short ferry ride to a secluded island with 2 beachfront restaurants.

Buttermoon gets our highest recommendation. We can’t wait to go back!

Perfect location in a perfect home. Quiet, safe, amazing views from the rooftop pool. Walking distance to Porto Cupecoy grocery and restaurants. The home was just as depicted in the photos and was very well maintained and very clean. Will definitely stay again

Top notch villa and service

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I rented the villa and will definitely be back. We have been coming to St Martin for years and decided to try something different and stay near Maho. We are glad that we did. The villa is gorgeous, clean, and comfortable. There is a great grocery store just across the street. This complex is extremely secure and it was nice to know that there are so many security measures in place for guests. Kelly was wonderful to deal with and responds extremely quickly- she even supplied us with a welcome gift of breakfast items. We will be back soon!

Perfect Travel Experience, Perfect Location, Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Let me first say that our October travels around the Caribbean and Latin America is a yearly occurrence for my friends and I. Of the 9 years traveling as a larger group this experience on St. Maarten and in this villa ranks top two of all locations and rental properties we've visited. The listing description was accurate for what it was but nothing written in words could ever convey the comfortably of this property on St. Maarten. As stated in the review title and after driving around the whole island while on vacation, in my opinion the location of this villa was perfect; walking distance from all that we would ever need shopping, entertainment and restaurant wise. Stumbling distance to the beach (fully nude, FYI). Walking distance from the largest mall I've ever seen on an island (five floors of retail space). Two minute drive from American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine. Five minute drive to the best nightlife I've ever experienced on an island for low season much less a Latin dance culture that rivals or is better than the city I currently reside in. Yes, and the gambling was the best (the craps table was scorching hot for four consecutive nights). An overall amazing time!

The property was clean and very well-maintained. You cannot ask for a better host than Kelly and the property security was friendly and abundant.

Porto Cupecoy right outside the Shore Pointe gates boasts a pretty nice supermarket, a handful of shops/boutiques, and a few restaurants. Cupecoy Beach is a few steps off the property grounds and is fully nude (so prepare yourself). I didn't make it to Mullet Bay but a few of my friends went missing a few times for a couple hours during the trip and had nothing but great things to say (beach empties out by 4PM). Blue Mall is exactly what its name says and as previously stated it's the largest mall I've personally seen on an island since I've been traveling around the Caribbean. The Maho area is a great way to pass time during the evenings and the nightlife and casinos kept us pretty entertained for the duration of our trip. Simpson Bay has a lot of restaurants, bars, and entertainment (great Latin dance scene if that interests you).

My recommendation to anyone visiting St. Maarten would be that if this property fits the needs of your travel group, look no farther for a extraordinary villa, location, and property manager that will have you planning your return visit while on vacation!

Could not have dreamed this vacation up! Buttermoon was everything we could have asked for and more. Kelly was also amazing getting everything set up for us. Wouldn't change a thing. Kelly even set us up with Elizee taxi service and he was available all week for everything we needed. Four couples one week in paradise we all agreed would not change one thing. AMAZING!!!

Amazing! Definitely stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

Such an amazing stay at the Buttermoon. We had four couples stay for a full week and couldn't have asked for a better location or Villa. We loved how there was a guard 24 hours a day and easy access to the beach. All of the bedrooms/bathrooms were beautiful and the beds were so comfortable. We had zero problems during our stay. You will not regret staying here.
