My family just completed a wonderful vacation in St Maarten at Villa Corinne. If you are looking to vacation in SXM and this villa is available, book it! You will not regret it. The villa and the surrounding area have everything you need to have a great vacation. The villa is beautifully decorated and has all of the highest quality appliances and electronics you will need (including the grill!). The location of the villa is perfect, on a stretch of beautiful semi-secluded beach with spectacular snorkeling 30 feet off the beach (the villa has all of the snorkeling equipment you need). In addition, there are 5 great restaurants merely steps away from the villa, Island Pizza, Beau Beau's, Canoa, Big Fish and Mr Busbys By The Sea/Daniel's (the name changes at night). There is also a small, well stocked grocery store with delicious, fresh-baked pastries, 100 yards away. You can rent a car here, but you don't even need one. It is the one place my family has vacationed where none of us, even our two teenage daughters, wanted to leave the place we were staying to go do anything. The villa and beach are so beautiful and there is so much to do, there was no need or desire to go anywhere else! You will love this place if you stay here.
