About Daphne Firth

My husband is retired and I still work in the private equity business. We hope to gradually spend more time at the house as I get closer to retirement. We are thrilled with our vacation home which we built in 2004 - our kids (now 26 and 28) have spent many memory filled spring breaks at this wonderful villa.

Daphne Firth purchased this villa in 2004

Why Daphne Firth chose Dawn Beach

We loved St. Martin because of its international flavor and european feel. Wonderful French restaurants, warm friendly people, easy flight connections and dependably beautiful weather

What makes this villa unique

To us, our house is Viking Heaven - hence the name. We still are amazed by the views and our French architect did some amazing things with the lighting and design to make this house warm, relaxing and very comfortable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Daphne,

Just a quick note to tell you that we had a wonderful time

at Valhalla. Everything was just great.

Catherine was so nice as well.

You have a beautiful house there. You should be enjoying it more yourself!

I won’t hesitate to call you the next time we are planning a vacation.



Thank you for everything.



Sincerely,
Apr 2014

Paradise with a view!

  • 5 of 5

Tremendous cliff side villa with multiple ocean views and the continual sounds of waves crashing were just the beginning of a phenominal week long vacation here. Easy access to the Westin resort (short downhill walk) and an extremely friendly staff catering to all your home away from home needs made this a trip to remember for a long, long time. A simple step down into the pool from the kitchen area was truly refreshing after a blistering day in the sun. Bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious, comfortable (A/C and celing fans) and clean. Catherine, the housekeeper made a mouthwatering 3 course meal that we ate outside on the patio late into the evening. (highly recommend this!) as the background lights along the opposite cliffs at night were an awesome sight as were the closeness of the stars up above. Nate DeGrate (or as he likes to say "The Great") was our cab driver that Catherine recommended and he did not disappoint! Inexpensive, all over the island and available anytime, we felt like we were royalty on the island. We did day trips to St. Barth's from Oyster Bay and Anguila from Marigot, both spectacular! Visited Orient Beach, Grand Case (favorite Rainbow Cafe & Beach), and Marigot inner harbor, all trips well worthwhile. We were a party of 6, 3 couples and always felt comfortable and relaxed. A must see vacation spot! We will gladly revisit many times!

Simply Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough fantastic things about our stay. From the absolutely stunning home, to the views, to the perfect location....our vacation was tremendous. Our group spanned a wide range from ages. Each and everyone in our group found the Villa to their absolute liking. The pool was very child friendly. We frequented the Westin Hotel to enjoy some of their amenities. The location of the villa also made for convenient trips to the French & Dutch side. We are already planning our next stay!!!!

The house is exactly as described by the owner. Fantastic view, beautiful pool and deck area and a number of good restaurants within 5-10 min drive. And the Westin is indeed just minutes away by foot.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had the best time on our week-long girls trip to this villa. The house is situated up on a bluff overlooking the ocean with continual warm ocean breezes. The pool and deck were fantastic for swimming, tanning and eating meals, and everything was extremely clean and felt very new. The views were beautiful! ALl the sliding doors open to the outside which is great. The house is quiet and peaceful, but within short walking distance to the Westin Hotel (which was convenient if we needed to use an ATM, rent a second car, etc.). The housekeeper, Catherine, was very helpful in helping with anything we needed, and we highly recommend the Caribbean meal she prepared one night! A must-do. The house is in a nice gated community, so it also felt safe.

Other activities to do in St. Martin: Pinal Island, Grand Case, Simpson Bay Beach, boat to St. Barths for the day. Highly recommend, and will go back again next year for sure.

great place!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was amazing!! Wonderful views, great location. It was spacious and well kept. It was great to have Ken meet us at our car rental to assist us in getting to the property!! Ken and Catherine were very helpful. We greatly enjoyed our stay as it was a wonderful place to be. Would definitely love to go back! We loved the amazing views!! The only drawback was the pool was a little deep for my 2 boys (ages 6 & 8) to really enjoy, but they were happy body surfing at the beach!!

Wow both day and night

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent our first Christmas away from the usual winter rains and instead basked in the sun. The location, the rooms and the views from the deck were exceptional. Put this together with the friendliest two house assistants - Catherine and Ken - and your holiday is second to none. We Skyped the families back home, who were all envious, and we were thankful to stay in touch. We relaxed for the day and went out for dinner at the next door hotel as a Christmas present to all of us - we are all chefs and took the day off. Our experience was even better than planned with the help and information package supplied by the owner, Daphne, and reading all of the comments both on-line and in the comments book at the house. The soaring frigate birds and pelicans were an added bonus. We would recommend this villa from our point of view for those looking to relax and have a home base for touring around the island.
