About Daphne Firth

My husband in 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 23 and 25) have spent many memory filled spring breaks.

Daphne Firth purchased this villa in 2004

Why Daphne Firth chose Dawn Beach

We loved St. Martin because our its european feel. Wonderful French restaurants, warn 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

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

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!

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!

Property Owner is Extremely Helpful

  • 5 of 5
I would like to commend the owner for going above and beyond to re-rent their home after a family emergency necessitated a change in our travel plans. The owner made extra effort to re-rent the property and once that was successful she returned our deposit. She did not need to do this and I am grateful for her kindness. My experience with her has been very positive through a difficult time for me. I hope some day I can still rent from this owner.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5
Our family of seven could not have stayed at a more wonderful place. The moment we landed in St Maarten our tip went smoothly. Catherine and Ken the house managers met us at rental car agency. Directed us to grocery,then on to Villa Valhalla . Catherine graciously explained all details necessary about the home. The villa is extremely clean, very well maintained and comfortably furnished. The kitchen is well eqipped. We cooked several meals in and had all the necessities at our fingertips. The views from the outdoor living space are too beautiful to describe. We sat for hours on the awesome teak furniture and watched the boats sail and people swim in the gorgouse blue/ green surf of Dawn Beach. The location was perfect. Easy to reach Dawn Beach,close to French side of island. My four sons loved the pool and spacious yard area. My husband and I loved the amazing views. Daphne the owner was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Villa Valhalla .

This house was amazing with breathtaking views. With two of our kids in college this was most likely our last family vacation with the five of us, and this house was the perfect choice. In fact we loved hanging out at the pool so much we chose to forgo a day trip to Anguilla in order to have more family time at the house. We love St Maarten, and when we go back would love to rent this house again, but next time for more than a week because it was so hard to leave!!
