The villa boasts a custom kitchen with modern stainless steel appliances and brightly colored blue tile which nicely compliments the white shutter cabinet doors. The living and dining areas are truly indoor/outdoor.

Car: Not Necessary

Quite frankly, the location of BEACHHOUSE GIANNA is in the perfect spot for someone who is looking for the real St MAARTEN/ST MARTIN. Unspoiled beauty, romantic European feel, wonderful local restaurants, and many stores for provisions. From the moment you drive up... and then down this incredible mountain to get to the Gated Community, DAWN BEACH ESTATES, you will see the incredible blue water, St. Barts in the distance and nothing but the blue blue sky. You will know you have found a very special hidden place. When you arrive at GIANNA, we guarantee your first reaction when you walk up to the living and deck area, with its glass doors slid open leaving nothing but open air, sea, views and sounds of the ocean, will be simple....... Wow! Make a quick island cocktail or fresh fruit drink and sit on the deck and let your stress and worries float away. You're on Beachhouse Gianna's time now :) Usually, our first day we relax and enjoy Gianna and then get ready for an early dinner. We normally stay local and go for a 5 or so minute drive into the Dawn Beach/ French Oyster Pond region. Depending on your tastes, our favorites are Le Pavillon, (Elaine & Christian are the owners) and always give VIP service to Gianna guests. The grilled local fresh snapper crusted with pistachios is the best. Likewise, Le BZH Creperie, with great local French food, crepes and pizza too and a wonderful local hang-out bar. (Helen is owner and she loves Gianna guests as well). Other great locals restaurants we frequent are Canoa (great grilled calamari with Italian sausage and unbelievable Caribbean conch stew). Another regular place for us is Le Planteur, with its great views and wonderful grilled lobster and French fish soup. Pizza Mia is always a great fun meal as well. Lunch at Mr. Busby's Beach Bar is always perfect and low key and it is on Dawn Beach. Also, in Grand Case, Camos Cafe is a favorite for lunch or fun dinner. Its on a great quite beach and you eat right on beach. I often swim there while enjoying my mixed fresh grilled fish salad and my chilled Cote to Rhone. One last place, and its an all day event, is Palm Beach on Orient Beach. Great lunch and scene. Owners are so nice and the beach is unbelievable as is the lobster salad with fresh fruits for lunch. Again always mention you are our guests at Gianna. They all will take great care of you. Again, we do urge you to force yourself to leave GIANNA, with its amazing decks and pool and frequent our local favorites for lunch and dinner. Also, there are great local provisions you can pick up for Gianna in French Oyster Pond. We often stock up with fresh fruit, cheeses, wine, dark rum, coffee, water, baguettes, and the like at one of the three wonderful stores. It certainly helps that there are direct flights from Paris to St Marten everyday :) Of course, after you have snorkeled and enjoyed Dawn Beach, and the options at the Westin Resort, Casino and Spa, please do try the other amazing beach spots in our area. Although, you don't need to we do recommend that you rent an auto and explore this amazing island. Vic at thrifty will give you a great deal as Gianna Guests. Enjoy Gianna and its surroundings. :)

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My wife and I married very young and we have now celebrated our 31st anniversary. We have two incredible children. Our daughter marrried this past July and our son is currently in college. I met my wife the first year of Law School and have been married ever since. I am a real estate attorney in NY and CT and have been coming to St Martin/St Maarten since I was 12 years old and have always dreamed of having a place here. Well 38 years later it happened. And what a place!!

Why the Owner Chose Dawn Beach Estates (Oyster Pond, Sint Maarten):
Ready for the story, well here it is. In 1987, my wife and I stayed at the original Dawn Beach Hotel. We were married only two years with no children and I had just finished law school and was starting my practice. Dawn Beach Estates was just being developed (that's the gated community where Beach House Gianna is located). There were no homes yet, just lots being subdivided to be sold. Well, we walked right in front of the lot, again just green and hills, where Gianna now stands. I have pictures of my wife right in front of the rocks right where our house now stands. Same waves..... Same big boulders...... Really amazing. Fast forward 22 or so years later, and I see Gianna on the internet for rent and sale. Its our 25th anniversary, I book it and don't highlight it is also for sale to my wife. Why worry her and the next thing I know we are there. We both walked up to the deck and we were stunned. The most magnificent view ever. Maybe it was a slight mid-life thing because I was hooked and ready before we got there, But my wife was hooked as well when she saw that view. BINGO. That's all I needed. We purchased the home, COMPLETELY renovated it and made it deserving of its location. We feel so honored to have such a home and want to share BEACH HOUSE GIANNA with as many people as possible. I am of Italian decent, and when I saw the name GIANNA which in Italian means GOD'S GRACE, we knew the name was perfect! Hope you get the opportunity to enjoy the GIANNA experience. OUR BEST TO YOU!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Everything, the view, the special locations, the pelicans flying above, the sunsets, the sunrises, the 'quicksand deck' with the pool. Why quick sand because once you lie on the deck you cant get leave :) Great breakfasts and French coffee on the deck. Great wine and cheese at night on the deck. The great stairs to the sea. Waking up to the sound of the ocean, seeing it so close. Swimming and snorkeling in the sea right in front of our property. Watching the boats in the distance. Looking at the horizon on the sea, or the blue, blue water or the long stretch of sand on Dawn Beach. The modern clean feel of Gianna. The history of the area. The still quaint town and wonderful local people here. The great nights out for wonderful meals in French Oyster Pond and Grand Case. Like you are on the French Riviera. So, so special.
