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

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.

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a Group of 6 and this place is simply amazing! From the moment you walk through the door and out to that view you feel like your in a dream. Whether it be the spectacular sunrises or the amazing service Catherine and Ken the provide, you can't go wrong! It simply doesn't get any better than is. Although a wonderful honeymoon setting, it also sets up Perfectly for groups with two large dining tables and a kitchen complete with an island counter for serve yourself type dinners when you decide to cook in. If you can find time to visit pinel island on the French side you won't be disappointed. It has a wonderful quaint beach with two open air restaurant/bars and it's only $13 american to take the 5 minute boat ride round trip. It's a perfect beach for wading around while having a drink or two as it is shallow crystal clear calm waters. I can't say enough about the wonderful week we had here and we will most certainly be back next year as we have already locked up our week of bliss.

The Best Place We've Stayed in St. Maarten!

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled to St. Maarten 5 times in the past 8 years and this was by far the best place we have ever stayed! Everything was wonderful and we felt perfectly at home in this beautiful villa. The breeze kept all the bugs away and the views were breathtaking. Make sure to get up for at least one sunrise over the ocean!

One note as the layout was a bit confusing to us based on the pictures. There is a main section to the house that has the master bedroom upstairs (off the kitchen) and two bedrooms downstairs. One bedroom downstairs has a king bed and attached bathroom and the other bedroom downstairs has two twin beds. The third bedroom is on the same level as the master bedroom, but is only accessible by going outdoors and walking by the pool. This layout was perfect for us as we have kids and were traveling with the grandparents as well.

We LOVED this villa and plan to go back as soon as we can!

Love, Love, Love Villa Valhalla!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have picked a more perfect place for our group of 8 adults (three families, all related). Perfect style-casual & comfortable; perfect layout-open & easy; perfect setting-gorgeous views & superbly located. Daphne was a pleasure to work with, as were Ken, Catherine and Catherine's assistant. As to the VRBO review questions: the listing description was accurate, the pictures reflect the property (only we think it feels larger than the pictures show), the property was clean and well-maintained (it is a rental property), the owner was more-than-helpful in answering questions (above and beyond), and we would all recommend to family and friends. As for things to do; hanging out at the Villa is hard to beat! We liked Sunset Bar/Maho Beach to watch the planes, snorkeling at Dawn Beach and Mullet Bay Beach. Mr. Busby’s/ Daniel’s was the best food we had - although the service was sub-par all four time we were there... and yes, some of us kept going back! (Note that patrons were visible frustrated with the lack of service, and I have to wonder if this was an anomaly? We did not experience this at any other restaurant.) The Marigot open market was nice and we picked up fresh Mahi-Mahi and Lobster early one morning. Opens at 7AM-go early for fish, and they will hold it for you if you want to shop just a little. I loved the very spicy, delicious, fish tacos at Dinghy Dock (Tue night special), and the 21-year-olds liked the fish & chips, but the "old" guys would not go back for the food! All of these things to do, and places to eat, are so subjective – just suffice it to say that you will not go wrong with Daphne, and her family's little piece of paradise! Can’t thank Daphne, Catherine and Ken enough!
