  • Simply the best!!!

    "Our family of 8, just returned from our 9 days in St. Martin.....the Jewel is everything you expect and more! The villa is breathtaking and spotless. Booking this vacation couldn't have been any easier - Ginny is amazing. She answered all of my questions and I loved her tip sheet. We were a busy bunch -we did 4 boat trips - one to swim with the dolphins in Anquilla on the Tango, one to St. Bart's to tour the island on ATV's, a snorkeling trip with Scuba Fun Dive shop and than a speed boat around the island to see sea turtles and stop at Pinel Island and Creole Rock. We had a great dinner at Daniel's by the Sea and than another night had lots of laughs for the show at Cheri's. We spent a relaxing afternoon at Loterie Farms and also did shopping in Philipsburg and Marigot. We still had plenty of time to relax at the house and enjoy the pool and the decks to enjoy the amazing view! Ursula made us her famous ribs, rice and potato salad, which was enjoyed by everyone. We loved feeding the iguana's and seeing numerous monkeys around the island! Thank you Ginny for sharing your amazing home with us!!!"

  • 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."

  • Perfect vacation spot

    "My family and I stayed at this unit over Christmas. The unit is beautiful with everything you could ask for. The furnishings are very comfortable . Sam is wonderful to deal with. He is always available for questions or problems . It can easily sleep five people even though we were only 3. Easy to get to the French side as well as Mullet which is our favorite beach"

  • Magical Vacation!

    "This place is beyond words as to the beauty and location of it. Perfect location. Quiet and it felt very private. But what made our vacation 100% better were the wonderful (previous) owners of this beautiful place! Jean-Pierre and Martine were THE most amazing hosts we could have ever asked for! They told us all the most fun places to visit, as well as to eat. They responded to our every (many!) questions throughout our trip and were always accessible. Thank you both so very much for making our vacation the best it could be!!!"
