Why choose Villa Caribella? The views of the ocean are just magnificent. The villa is meticulously clean and refreshing with an open floor plan. Proven track record of very happy guests. References are available. Owner managed with additional on-island manager who also constructed the villa. Safe, secure, gated community away from crowds yet only minutes to restaurants, beaches, a marina and boating/water sports.

Wake each morning to the spectacular sunrise, when the dazzling tropical sun dances on the crystal clear turquoise sea, creating an ever-changing array of tropical blues. Imagine waking to the tranquil sounds of the sea lapping upon the shore.

On the horizon, the infamous island of St. Barths glistens in the sun throughout the day; at night the distant city lights and brilliant starry sky collide. Other islands in view include St. Kitts, Nevis and St. Eustatiius — even the distant volcanic island of Montserrat twinkles on a clear Caribbean day.

CAPTIVATING 180 DEGREE VIEWS OF THE OCEAN

Villa Caribella boasts soaring ceilings, perfect views of the ocean, and welcoming interiors. The villa blends an organic mix of wood, stone, glass, water, and air into a West Indies style with a touch of tropical flair.

A seamless transition between inside and out, the spacious living area opens to the sea air. An eleven foot, built-in sofa facing the horizon invites hours of relaxation and entertainment.

Granite-topped counters accent the modern gourmet kitchen with everything you need to prepare meals that you can enjoy from the elevated dining area or from the adjoining terrace. The opulent master bedroom with luxury bathing area completes this main level.

Next to the kitchen, are two guest rooms, each with a private bathroom. Accessible by a separate entrance, the lower level comprises a private studio suite complete with kitchen, private bath, and an outdoor lounging area. A sprawling veranda, featuring additional outdoor living space, connects the studio to the other guest rooms. ALL BEDROOMS HAVE OCEAN VIEWS!

The villa has floors, bathrooms, and terraces of Italian marble. All rooms have ceiling fans that gently coax the constant sea breeze through the house. For added comfort, all bedrooms have independently-controlled air conditioning.

Surrounded by banana trees (pick your own when ripe!), coconut palms, bougainvilleas and oleanders, Villa Caribella welcomes you to live your dream and leave with a taste of the Caribbean.

Why Deborah (Owner) chose Tamarind Hill

The villa is custom designed and built and I am the original owner. I wanted it to have a true island feel, like it is part of the island and belongs there. The building lot was love at first sight and our view will always be there....and so will the sound of the ocean waves. Having both the French and Dutch culture is amazing and it is located on the Dutch side near the French border. St Maarten is 'the friendly island'.

What makes this villa unique

The view, especially at sunrise is absolutely spectacular; it is fabulous. It is hard to decide weather to have coffee and breakfast by the pool, or take an early morning walk to Red Pond beach (great workout). The established neighborhood is quiet and very safe. It is a place to escape the real world, away from traffic, noise, neon signs and tourists, yet only minutes to restaurants, beaches and the marina.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our 2nd visit to St. Maarten and we really enjoyed it again. The villa is amazing and very well equipped. The food, the people, the beaches are what makes this place, a place you want to come back again and again. Thank you for opening your villa to us.

Just what the doctor ordered!

  • 5 of 5
Villa Caribella was the perfect getaway for peace and quiet and listening to the ocean waves. The photos very much represent the Villa and the deck overlooking the ocean is much better than expected. The owner was very helpful with written information about the villa as well as suggestions for restaurants and excursions. The villa is very private and perfect for a couple or a group who want relaxation. James, the on-island manager, met us at the car rental location, and we followed him to the villa. I would have never found it on my own. We visited almost every beach on the island, and our favorites were Friar's Bay and Pinel Island.

We enjoyed the lobster lunch at Le Galion restaurant in Marigot, and Caribbean Creole in Grand Case, Mr. Busby's, Pineapple Pete's, Skipjack, and Loterie Farm's Hidden Forest Cafe'. If you go to Pinel Island, the restaurants are extremely expensive on the small island. I followed the advice of another vacationer and ate at the roach coach when returning to our car from Pinel. A Dominican mother and daughter provide great food. And don't forget the French bakery on the road from the villa to the French Quarter. Great food and pleasant staff.

We took the Aqua-Mania Lambada catamaran to Prickly Pear off Anguilla. The crew was great, as well as the lunch on the beach and the unlimited rum punches! And the captain, crew, and fellow passengers celebrated my wife's birthday on the cruise to make the day so special. We also took the Rhino Safari tour around the island and enjoyed the great snorkeling at an island north of Grand Case.

We did some hiking in the neighborhoods around the villa and enjoyed the pool. It was a wonderful vacation and we look forward to staying at Villa Caribella again.

Paradise on Earth!

  • 5 of 5
We are a blended family of 2 adults and 4 "kids" ranging in age from 19-25. It was perfect. The views of course,which are indescribable...At the risk of sounding cliche, the pics don't do it justice. Don't forget to wake up to watch the sun rise! It is very private and could be perfect for a honeymooning couple as well. The space and the beds were comfortable and luxurious .Because it is on the Atlantic side and quite breezy, we were able to spend lots of time on the beautiful terrace and it was always comfortable. The kitchen well equipped and there is everything you could want/need to prepare meals, but the island beckons with it's amazing food. We loved Calmos Cafe in Grand case, Dinghy Dock in Oyster Pond for drinks and happy hour, the Lolos in Grand Case for authentic Island grilled meals. Check out the Freedom Fighter's Ital Shack, esp if you have a vegetarian/ vegan in the group. Highly recommend Capt Alan's 3 Island Tour, and a visit to Pinel Island. Our favorite beaches are Orient and Le Galion. Love the Weds/Sat market in Marigot, and you MUST stop at Sarafina, the best bakery on the island, lunch at Rosemary's and its worth the fairly short climb to Ft St Louis to be rewarded with the views. Just go !!

Perfect for Relaxation and Solitude

  • 5 of 5
I want to thank you for sharing your gorgeous home with us. I felt completely spoiled and unworthy. It was hard to leave it to go do other things. The solitude and views were spectacular. It was exactly what my husband and I needed on this vacation. We came back very rested and relaxed. Your place was simply perfect for us and we plan to return and maybe bring friends with us the next time.

One of the best ever

  • 5 of 5
Vialla Caribella and St. Maarten are both fantastic. The Villa was very clean and, James, the property manager was very easy to deal with. The property owner was great! Deborah made sure all my questions were answered prior to booking with her and she was quick to respond as I was planning our week. Her recommendations about restaurants and beaches were very helpful.
While on the island, renting a car is a must. The view from the villa is incredible but I strongly recommend seeing a different beach every day. Our favorite was Pinel. You have to take a very short ferry to the island. Palm beach at Orient bay was also great and the lunch was fantastic. The hidden forest café had great food for dinner and is one of a kind.
We used shop n drop groceries and they had the kitchen stocked with food upon our arrival. A great service for those who are not familiar with the island and the grocery stores.
We had four couples in the villa to celebrate a 40th birthday. The villa was a great place for us and we all had a great time.

WOW - what a view!

  • 4 of 5
Villa Caribella was a wonderful stay this year during the New Year's week! Extremely relaxing. As my son in law said, it will be hard to ever go to a hotel again. The pool isn't heated but being from Michigan and Minnesota - it was warmer than we're used to. A couple of things that folks should know - the roads are like Highway 1 in California WITHOUT turnouts. When it rains, our car couldn't go up the hill - we just had to wait - next time - 4 wheel drive. While it's generally wonderful to be on "island time", this also applies to the St. Maarten airport which gives no priority to commercial airlines over the private airlines and with 1 runway for incoming and outgoing, chances are your flight will be delayed so if you're making a connection, don't schedule the closest one - leave plenty of time on the return to whatever country you're going to. We also had a nocturnal Gecko visit which some caulking took care of :) - they like bugs you know...and should be expected in the Caribbean. Would we come back? Absolutely! IT's the only place we would stay on St. Maarten/St. Martin. We preferred the French side because the food is far superior and while we were there, the French folks were treating Euros and dollars as equal if you paid with cash almost everywhere. We also liked the French supermarket - lots of different things from the states. The dutch side food stores look just like a Publix or bodega depending on the size of the store you go to. The service from James to Pauletta was outstanding and informative. Kudos to James as he had to wait an additional 4 hours for our flight from the states and he expedited things with the car rental and the evening food because he knows who and how to move things along. The pictures on the site don't do the place justice - until there's holograms, it's just not possible to communicate the beauty of the place!

Villa Caribella

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this villa for 12 days (November) and had a great time. The photos were accurate--villa was well-maintained, clean and beautifully furnished, bedroom suites very comfortable and private. Especially liked that the kitchen and great room fully opened up to the deck and pool area. Spent many an hour relaxing on cushy outdoor furniture reading and enjoying the view of the ocean, sailboats, and St. Barths in the distance. We did enjoy several day trips. The harbor of Marigot (French side) was very scenic--they have an outdoor market every Wed and Sat, selling everything from fresh-caught fish, veggies, and spices to clothing, artwork, and jewelry (lots of shopping opportunities at the French boutiques as well.) Enjoyed lunch across the street at a wonderful French bakery--food very good and prices reasonable (be sure to take some pastries home for later!) A trip to Grand Case is a must--great restaurants and little boutique shops. Many beaches--one for every day of the week--we especially liked Orient Beach. Also, visit the Lotterie on the French side--wonderful pool and spa-like atmosphere (cabanas, no less) and luscious food. A trip to the main drag in Phillipsburg is also a nice day trip--known for the many jewelry shops (NICE) and boutiques, and several bars and restaurants for a leisurely lunch (we chose one by the water). A short trip near the villa takes you to the Dawn Beach area--Busby's is right on the beach and great for lunch--and Busby's morphs into Daniel's by the Sea at night with soft lighting, good food, and reasonable prices. For meeting locals, try the Dingy Dock nearby--just ask anyone for directions. Renting a car is a must. Grocery stores I would recommend--Costplus, Grand Marche, Fresh Market. The villa owner was very helpful--gave us directions, recommended activities, and answered any questions we had. We definitely would return--our stay was wonderful!!! There are steps leading down from the parking area to the villa--this may pose a problem for someone with physical disabilities. Also, I would not recommend this villa if you have young children--the railings on the deck are not built to US code, and the pool could be a problem also.
