  • Excellent family vacation

    "Our "extended" family--our 3 kids and 2 of their friends--spent a fabulous week at Villa Pom. We wanted to be close enough to a variety of activities, while not feeling boxed in by a dense resort. Maly was very helpful getting us off to a good start, and I texted her throughout the week for tips and recommendations. The beach out side the house is not really a lounging beach, though the pool is a great future. We took full advantage of the kayaks to get a bit of a workout on our way to Pinel Island, before plopping into a chaise to lounge away the afternoon with cold drinks and great food. The hammock was always occupied--the kids always got to it before I could. Easy access to Orient Beach and Grand Case. Lots of water sports. We were there in low season, so some places were closed. That said, we never had to wait for anything. Great restaurants in Grand Case, though they seem to collude on price!! Other than the barbecue joints, all menus were in the same range, so we ended up spending more than intended to feed our crew of 7. The house, itself, was well appointed, and the beds (at least the one in the master) was among the most comfortable beds in which I've ever slept. My wife and I would readily return, either with the kids or with a few other couples."

  • Loved this place!

    "This was our first time in St. Maarten and we had a great time staying at Whispering Palms! The villa had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable: convenient parking, a fully equipped kitchen, two full bathrooms, two bedrooms, a cozy living room with a TV, a barbecue on a large balcony, WiFi, and AC. The location was very convenient – about 20 minutes away from the airport and minutes away from Guana Bay beach. It quickly felt like our ‘home away from home’. We enjoyed going to the nearby grocery stores and bringing things back to make our meals at the villa. The ocean view, which you can see from the parking lot, the balcony, and almost every window, is spectacular and the communal pool was beautiful and private. We liked that the villa wasn’t in a touristy location, yet we could get to any of the other beaches and tourist spots within 15-20 minutes. Eugene, the owner, was very helpful before and during the trip. He provided a detailed PDF booklet with directions to the villa and plenty of suggestions for where to eat, shop, and have fun. Everything we did was fun and memorable. The highlight of our trip was a six-hour tour around the island through Robinson Boat Tours. My friends and I would definitely go back to St. Maarten and to Whispering Palms. This was an excellent place to stay – safe, picturesque, and fun! Highly recommended!"

  • 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."

  • The best stay ever!

    "Only a couple of things I would change, one of the bar handles into the pool was extremely loose, I nearly fell onto the side of the pool. Made sure my 82 year old mother didn't use it. Also it seems the iguana swims in the pool at some point because there was always poop in the pool and around the pool every morning. The owner is awesome, very attentive to our needs and requests. The condo was everything that the previous reviews mentioned."
