A Little Slice of Paradise!

  • 4 of 5

The villa was amazing, beautiful views, nicely equipped, and wonderful communication. We are a group of friends (two couples and three additional friends).

Sam, the rental agent, met us at the airport and helped us get to the villa.

The villa was set up perfectly for our needs - you walk into the living space (kitchen, dining area, and living room) and immediately have a beautiful ocean view - to the right is the master suite - to the left is a small staircase that leads down to two additional bedrooms and bathrooms (one with a queen bed and one with two twin beds pushed together). If you proceed out the sliding doors towards the pool area, there is an outdoor dining space under a roof. To the left of the pool is another bedroom/bathroom that is accessible by a sliding door in the patio/pool area. Beds were comfortable and plenty of towels.

Communication with both the hosts and rental agent was timely and clear. Every question was answered and the one small issue that occurred during our stay was tended to quickly (AC note working in one of the bedrooms).

The island itself has amazing beaches and the villa is a bit "off the beaten path," so I would highly recommend renting a car to be able to explore all of the surrounding areas. A couple of things to be aware of when renting a car: The road as you are approaching the villa is a VERY steep hill and the driveway at the villa is also a partially paved hill, wide enough for two cars. Some of the drivers on the island are aggressive and impatient - passing on the left on very narrow roads. Many scooters pass down the middle of lanes (between you and oncoming traffic). Lastly, if you are leaving the villa and heading for the french side of the island, it's better to brave the hills you came in on than try to take the shortcut to Oyster Bay, as that road is quite bumpy and only partially paved.

We arrived on a Sunday when all of the major grocery stores were closed - there are some smaller, local shops where you can get essentials, but beware, they are cash only (or so they said, while two credit card machines sat unused on the counter) and will likely charge you in the local currency when all you have is dollars. Be sure to visit either the Fresh Market or Grande Marche for better food shopping options.

All in all, we had a fantastic time, loved the villa, and couldn't have asked for better hosts. Thank you to Vincent, Celine, Sam, and the Villa Tamarind Team for a wonderful week!

Beautiful villa with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from St. Martin and loved staying in Villa Tamarind. The villa was very clean and had many amenities. The kitchen was more than well stocked with kitchen supplies and cooking utensils. We ate outside for all meals and enjoyed the amazing breeze. The view of St. Bart and Guana Bay were fantastic-we were able to get some fantastic sunrise pictures. We had rented a car and explored different beaches each day. If anyone is traveling with small children, La Galion is one of the best beaches for them! We went twice as my 4 year old could run and play in the shallow water. Dawn beach is very close and just as beautiful. We had a memorable stay here and would definitely visit again!

Beautiful and convenient location. Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful 4 bedroom villa with unbeatable views. Excellent location that was <15 min from the best beach (Orient), best shopping (Phillipsburg), and best restaurants (Grand Case) on the Island.

Wonderful and Peaceful home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to St. Martin and it was a delight. What a view to wake up to and enjoy for the entire day. We travelled with our five children ranging from 19 years old to 10 years old. This home was the perfect set-up to enjoy the downtime in otherwise hectic schedules. The kitchen is fully stocked with the all appliances you would need to make all of your meals at the house and the local supermarkets did not leave us lacking for anything. The home seemed rather central to all of the activities we wished to do on the island and certainly felt like home as we returned after hours in town. We would surely request this property again for future visits.

Very nice house and view, but with a local problem

  • 4 of 5

A very nice house, good ambiance, great view. Rental car(s) are a must. Bring your own map (rental car ones are poor). Be aware that the beds are quite hard (mostly no box springs), which was OK for us (we often sleep on boats), but not for some of our group. Spraying for mosquitoes in the bathrooms between tenants would help. Only real negative was that for the second time in 6 months, demonstrators blockaded all the border crossing roads. The Gendarmes deliberately stayed away. We were not told, so we ran into a blockade, they demanded money and we got stoned when we turned around. Still no interest by the Gendarmes for 5 more hours. A real shame since the best restaurants and beaches are on the French side. So only stay on the Dutch side (like Tamarind), so you won't risk getting trapped like those at Orient Bay did. And be aware there's usually no cell phone coverage. Wi-Fi at the house works fine.

Owner's Response: Dear Ben, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. Your input and feedback are important to us and we're glad you enjoyed our beautiful home. We are very sorry you were caught in those unforeseen political developments on the French side and were shocked to hear about them. We do hope you'll come back. Warm regards, The Villa Tamarind Team
