  • Our perfect, long awaited, family vacation!!!!

    "We chose The Jewel because our two grown children requested a tropical paradise for our long awaited family get-together . . . . . . and it didn't disappoint!!!! What a gorgeous, private, and perfect property!!!! The pictures do not do it justice, although they are what sold us to begin with. Having Ursula, as an on-site housekeeper was amazing. Besides making sure we had everything we needed and were as comfortable as possible, she was a fabulous resource for dining, shopping, beaches, and how to get around. This is one of those houses that you expect to see in Beach Resort magazines!!!! Amenities galore and beyond perfect location!!!! Please consider The Jewel for your next tropical paradise vacation and you will be highly rewarded!!!"

  • Gorgeous ocean views

    "The photographs don't do this property justice. Overlooking the sea, with a view of St. Bart's, everything was as advertised. We had a wonderful week in St. Maarten/St. Martin. Oyster Pond is located right on the border between the Dutch and French sides of the island, a 10-15 minute drive to Phillipsburg and a 20 minute drive from all the restaurants in Grand Case. We also enjoyed visiting the local creperie and enjoyed meals at Big Fish, Mr. Busby's, and Beau-Beau's. This condo is well-maintained and the owners appear to be conscientious and available. There is a current seaweed problem on the beaches found on the entire Atlantic side of the island (yes, even on Orient Beach), but hopefully that is temporary. There was ample parking on the property, even if you did occasionally have to park some distance from the unit due to high season volume. Overall, a wonderful experience; we hope to return some day."

  • Unbelievable View

    "We just returned home from a beautiful vacation at this villa in St. Maarten. The view is absolutely breath taking, overlooking Dawn Beach and Oyster Pond. The pool situated between the main house and the master suite, was an added bonus, allowing you to relax with a beverage and look out over the Carribean. The children enjoyed swimming at night. All bedrooms have AC for night time but the Caribbean wind keeps the main house cool during the day. The kitchen is well equipped, as we cooked breakfast each morning and made lunches as needed. Bernard and Eudora were so helpful, providing overall care of the house daily. The villa is within walking distance of Oyster Pond and Dawn Beach, which have chair and umbrella rental, a small grocery and great restaurants. Our favorite restaurants at Dawn Beach were Mr. Busby's and Big Fish and favorite restaurant on Oyster Pond was Dinghy Docks. Beautiful Orient Beach and the French Cul De Sac are a short 5-10 minute drive from the villa. Our family spent 2 days at Orient Beach. Brother's Beach Bar had great food and chair and umbrella service. Our kids enjoyed the huge water trampolines. The adults enjoyed very affordable beverages and people watching. We also took the ferry from the French Cul De Sac to beautiful Pinel Island for the day. We ate lunch on the island, rented chairs and umbrellas and snorkeled in the National Geographic underwater trail. Simpson Bay is also a short drive from the Villa. We did 2 excursions from this bay - Catamaran to Anguilla/Dolphin Discovery and off shore fishing. We also ate at Dinghy Docks on Simpson Bay after a long day on the beach. Overall an unbelievable vacation on the Dutch side of the island. We hope to return again soon."

  • Beautiful home and ocean view

    "Villa Sea Watch is named correctly. It sits on top of a rocky cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, with nothing to block the view. The pictures on the website accurately show the home, and it's even better in person. Each of the three bedrooms are very large, with comfortable beds, terrific sunrise ocean views, air conditioning and private bathrooms. The master bedroom is alone on the upper level with a balcony overlooking the pool and ocean. The home would work well for three couples. The main level has a dining room, living room, kitchen, wet bar, breakfast area, and two bedrooms. The open-concept dining/living/kitchen areas are not air conditioned, but are screened in and get a constant breeze when all windows are opened. The pool is large and deep, and the deck has both sunny and shaded areas, plus a propane grill for outdoor cooking. It's a great spot to watch and listen to the ocean. The home is in a private gated neighborhood, so traffic is nearly non-existent - no road noise at all. The area is a near the Westin hotel/casino (a five minute drive on a truly rotten road - but it's passable if you go slow and pick your spots), and several beach bars and restaurants. Cherie, the owner, was a delight to work with. She responds quickly, and went above and beyond what we would expect to make our stay a memorable one. We highly recommend the home, and would definitely return."
