The island of St. Maarten lived up to ALL of our expectations and this outstanding home away from home even was over the top for anyone's expectations! The photos are beautiful but do not even do it justice. The views, the ambience, the layout of the home are spectacular! We had 7 people and used all 4 suites and had perfect privacy yet great fun together cooking, eating, swimming in the wonderful pool, and just enjoying the magnificent views. All bedroom suites have a dynamic view and deck or patio access. Donnamarie (owner) REALLY makes you feel right at home from the time you book your trip with her until you leave. She ensured all details including reservations at fabulous seaside restaurants were perfect. Her home manager Daryl is also outstanding and attentive. He is very knowledgeable about the area and the island and drove us safely with our rental van everywhere we went. He made our trip so much more relaxing just knowing he was there for us. Donna Marie was always available and her housekeepers were the best! They kept this home immaculate. Staying here is like staying at your own 5 star resort only complete privacy! We truly enjoyed Daniels by the Sea restaurant so much we went there 3 times- with our table right on the shore. We went to the French side-which is close and enjoyed a great afternoon on Orient Beach and had a wonderful lunch on the water at Palm Beach. Shopping at the French grocery store nearby was fun too. Wine selections there and at the Grand Marche where wonderful foods are plentiful and reasonable is a fun outing in itself. We had an outstanding dinner on the French side where Donnamarie reserved the best table for us--Sol E Luna. Highly recommend this restaurant for foodies and just classy-- Great ambience too. Closer by we also went one evening to Canoa, which was also wonderful right on the water. We splurged and had a private chef also make us a wonderful catered dinner served at home under the stars for my 60th birthday celebration! What a treat! The internet worked perfectly fine in many areas of the home and we had wonderful music playing by the pool all day! Walking to the beach every morning will put you in great shape and make you hungry!! What a spectacular home and trip. We highly recommend this home as your choice for the best place you could stay. We will be back again and Daryl will always be our driver! Thank you so much for your kindness, graciousness and thoughtfulness Donnamarie!
