Outstanding Family Trip
Our group of 4 adults and 4 kids (ages 8-12) spent an incredible week in St Maarten in mid March. We loved everything about the villa - the view was breathtaking, the indoor and outdoor amenities exceeded all of our expectations. It was quiet, private and we felt extremely safe in the Upper Prince’s Quarter neighborhood. We rented a car (which is required given the location is at least 10 mins away from the nearest restaurants/groceries) and quickly adapted to driving the island roads. We have travelled to several Caribbean islands and St Maarten/St Martin is by far the most welcoming, comfortable and safe island that we have visited.
Celine and her local property managers were extremely responsive and offered many fantastic suggestions of places to visit/dine on the island. We enjoyed exploring but also enjoyed staying put at the villa to lounge by the pool and explore the local beach. As the COVID-19 crisis started to escalate globally, Celine reached out repeatedly to check in and ensure we were able to get home. We are extremely grateful for her concern and support at this unprecedented time.
I would highly recommend this villa and the island of St Maarten to all travelers - gorgeous beaches, delicious food, modern conveniences, lovely people.
Thank you for sharing your slice of paradise with us Celine and family!
SPECTACULAR Tamarind Villa in Sint Maarten!!!! Celine is an AMAZING host!!
This was our first time in St Maarten (family of 6).
Celine and her villa EXCEEDED our expectations.
The house is located in a beautiful, gated community that sits on a small hill. The neighbourhood is very quiet. The gate guards are very friendly. The path to the villa is lined by beautiful flowers and trees, and many beautiful houses.
The villa itself is HUGE & GORGEOUS. There are 4 very spacious bedrooms: 1 master BR on one side of the villa; 2 separate BRs on the other side; and 1 separate BR off the side of the villa. Each of the BRs has its own LARGE full bathroom, and each has air conditioning.
The living room is huge, and fully equipped for entertainment (TV, netflix, wifi, Alexa sound system). The sectional couch was huge: we could enjoy the whole family sitting together (with each person having their own space).
The kitchen and pantry is fully equipped+++.
The views from the villa are BREATHTAKING. You can see the sun rise and set. The ocean is calming, with soothing sounds of the distant waves.
The infinity pool is spectacular. Just cool enough during the day to be refreshing without being cold, and warmed up in the afternoon by the sun. The deck is equipped with everything you could possibly need: Lounge chairs so that you can bask in the sun at any time; a large dining table in the sun; and another large dining table that is covered.
Celine is an AMAZING host. Her team welcomed us at the airport, brought us to the car rental place to get our van, and accompanied us to the villa.
In the LARGE walk-in pantry, Celine has a board organized with many of the worthwhile places to visit: Top 5 beaches; Top 5 places for Lunch; Top 5 places for dinner; etc. There is also a homemade book with details on the house and the surrounding areas. And, Celine is VERY responsive by email (she responds almost as soon as you hit "send".... very attentive to whatever questions you may have!).
The villa has 2 private parking spots, so no worries if you rent a vehicle. There is also an outdoor "living room" space, next to an elegant old-style oven (and a smoker, and a BBQ). Admittedly, we did not spend very much time there, because we were too enamored with the deck area, with the constant warm, soothing, soft tropical winds blowing, which is very relaxing.
The beaches are great. Our favorite was Orient Bay.
Grand Case has excellent restaurants.
The villa is INCREDIBLE!! Our family LOVED it! Celine is a GREAT host. VERY HAPPY we chose it. RELAXING
Don, thank you for the amazing review! We work hard to provide our guests with an experience that exceeds their expectations and we're glad we could deliver such a result for you! We would love to welcome you back.
Feb 2020 family vacation
Villa Tamarind was great. The house was accurately depicted and we enjoyed that each bedroom had it’s own bathroom. The separate suite off the pool area was helpful for our friend traveling with us didn’t mind being away from our kids who woke up so early each morning! House was very well stocked and Celine had fantastic communication throughout the rental process and while we were there. We were greeted at the airport by one of Celine’s staff who was very friendly and escorted us to car rental place and then to the house so we wouldnt get lost. We had placed an order for food with a delivery service Celine recommended which made arriving to the house easy as we had snacks and things to prepare a first dinner and breakfast. The supermarkets on the island are great and convenient so don’t spend too much on the delivery service - prices are better at the supermarket directly. When we arrived Celine had provided some welcome beers and rum which was a welcome touch! The view is lovely and renting a car is crucial so you can navigate to the different beaches on the island. Celine’s recommendations were spot on. The key for us was finding beaches that didn’t have the cruise ship folks and we definitely found them. Note that the French side isn’t shy about going topless and some (typically older folks) nude on the beach. But that added to the local flavor. Food on the island is expensive but very tasty. Great beach side restaurants. Laid back atmosphere everywhere we went. Villa Tamarind is well located with access to any point you wish to visit on the island. Usually we reached the beaches within 30-45 minutes depending on traffic any way we drove.
Alexandra, thank you for the great review! We're glad you had such a wonderful vacation with your family and enjoyed Villa Tamarind thoroughly. We look forward to having you back!
We loved Villa Tamarind for our 10 day vacation! The most amazing views we have ever experienced on any vacation...EVER! 3 of the 4 bedrooms open up to the pool deck which gazed out to St. Barths, and mountainous views of St. Maarten and it’s coastline. The pool itself was the perfect refreshing escape from the warm temps we had and the perfect depth for our 3 children, 8, 6, and 3 to enjoy. The rooms each had their own AC units except the main living area, which could be warm at times, but had plenty of ceiling fans to circulate the air. One of the units failed and needed to be replaced, which was done immediately and without annoyance, which is a testament to Celine, Bogdon, and Marko, our property management team. They made us feel welcome from the minute we stepped off our plane to the very last day! They offered a Caribbean BBQ for an additional cost, that was well worth the evening off of cooking for everyone. The array of grills and the wood fire pizza oven made for some exceptional dinners that my friends and I were able to prepare from local seafood and produce that was purchased from a couple of the grocery stores 15-25 minutes away.
Our children loved walking around in the evenings as we prepared our dinners, to take in the many hermit crabs and small lizards that scurry around at that time.
There were only a couple minor discrepancies from the listing that we found once we arrived and had time to explore from our villa. There is a small beach that can be traveled to that is near the villa. But none within walking distance for people with kids and beach accessories, or for people not wanting to walk for more than 45 minutes to a rocky beach. It’s best to just drive 20-30 minutes to Oyster, Orient Beach, or Mullet Bay where you will find amazing beaches, water sports, and restaurants. Things are fairly pricey, and expect to pay for beach chairs and umbrellas that fetch a cost on average of $30 for 2 chairs and an umbrella.
Overall, we didn’t mind the driving to different beach locations as we were able to see the amazing sights, local towns, and what St. Maarten had to offer. We were amazed by the wonderful accommodations and would recommend this tranquil villa to anyone looking for the most amazing and stunning views on the island! Thanks again to Celine, Bogdon, and Marko for a truly blessed experience for our family and friends!
Thanks for the awesome review, Ian! We're glad you thoroughly enjoyed the house and the gorgeous views with your family and friends! It was a pleasure hosting you.
I'm afraid you might have missed Gibbs Bay, which is a small sandy beach, and can be reached within 10/15 minutes (the walk back will take you c. 20 minutes as it is uphill!). It's a small beach with a reef (best in settled weather), and devoid of any facilities, but perfect for a relaxing early morning walk and chill with the family.
We look forward to welcoming you back next year!
Most Wonderful Family Vacation
We were there as a couple and then with our adult children and spouses. It was perfect in all respects. The welcome and package and people were outstanding. Alix did a wonderful Caribbean BBQ the first night that set the scene for every night of in home dinners and wonderful experiments with the wood fired oven! Perfectly appointed kitchen with everything you need for serving and entertaining. Cleanliness of property and amenities were over the top. The view is second to none. Perfect for four couples with and privacy and great communal space. Home owner was very attentive and very interested in our enjoyment of the villa. Security is superior with a guard and entrance gate. We rented a car but taxis are available. Owner helped us when we had a problem with our car. Outside Dining areas are not to be missed. We would lift this property and take it anywhere.! Hated to leave!
Hi Marvin, it was a pleasure hosting you and your family. We're glad you had such a wonderful time and loved our Villa and the views! We'll be happy to Welcome you back anytime!
We had an amazing time at Celine's villa. Excellent communication pre booking and throughout the entire trip. She's well versed in the island and gave us plenty of tips and recommendations in addition to offering options for extra villa services such as grocery stocking / personal chef. Her and her team took great care of us including meeting us at the airport as well as keeping us updated on where to avoid during the protests on the French side. We had some minor issues that had to be addressed and she sent her maintenance team right away. It's great to see a host that is so involved and cares about the experience of their guests!
The villa itself is clean and better than as pictured. We felt very safe as it's located in a gated community with 24/7 guard. Gorgeous views...we were able to catch sunrise and you can see all the way to St. Barts. We loved spending our days lounging outdoors, swimming in the pool, using the spin bike,..the house really has everything - outdoor fridge for easy access to drinks, board games, netflix, etc.! Lovely breezes outdoors, screened windows, wifi throughout, ample lighting...AC worked well in the bedrooms. Nice touches such as welcome gift/beverages.
We really found no need to be out and about much as the villa was such a wonderful escape for us.
For those that enjoy cooking you will truly appreciate how well equipped the kitchen is. We made our grocery runs at Carrefour and made use of the commercial grade dual fuel gas range...stand mixer & scale for baking...blender for smoothies..these were just a few of the kitchen toys on hand. Outdoors you have the charcoal grill and pizza oven..materials supplied for both. A lot of thought and care have been taken to make your stay as relaxing as possible...a mid week cleaning is included as well as plenty of supplies (well stocked pantry, paper supplies and dishwasher tablets etc).
We absolutely loved our stay at this villa and the service is top notch! Highly recommend!
Hi Andrea, thank you for the lovely review! We're glad you and your family enjoyed our beautiful Villa so much and appreciated the level of service we offer to all our guests. We look forward to welcoming you again!
