Overview

Philipsburg Villa Rental Photos and Description

2BR, 2 full baths, 1/2 bath, Oceanfront Rental. St. Maarten, sleeps 6

This two bedroom, two and a half bath villa is situated right on Great Bay Beach in a small complex of twelve individual villas with a lovely beach front swimming pool and breath-taking ocean views. This gated complex with on-site management is the perfect place to relax around the pool or to just lounge on your private lanai or elevated deck overlooking our beautiful beach. It is remodeled inside and out with new furniture and king beds.

The location is ideal because it is on the opposite side of Great Bay from the bustling Philipsburg Cruise Port, so you can enjoy the wonderful views of the cruise ships' comings and goings without the crowds! There are as many as six cruise ships in port at one time and watching them is a favorite past-time of just about everyone who stays at our complex.

There are endless activities available in Saint Maarten/Saint Martin and the surrounding islands if you are interested in something other than vegging out on our gorgeous beach or beachside pool and patio

Recently remodeled: Tastefully decorated with all new beds and bedding (600 thread count silky sheets!), sleeper sofa and living room furniture. All 3 bathrooms were entirely remodeled with the 2 private upstairs bedroom baths each receiving new round showers and rain showerheads with handheld shower wands. A new viewing deck is available through patio doors from the ocean side bedroom which overlooks the beach, ocean, and cruise ship dock. The entire kitchen was remodeled including a new stove, full sized microwave, dishwasher, plenty of cabinet space, and granite tile. We repainted the entire interor and fully stocked with dinner ware, cooking supplies, spices, blender, and bar accessories. There are even little drink umbrellas waiting just for you!

Short walk to everything: There is a local convenience store a half block away for the last minute necessities. Your favorite restaurants, shops, piers, and people watching is just a short 5-10 minute walk down the beach or boardwalk. This is one of the best locations on the island as you can have peace and quiet when you want it or walk just a few minutes to all the shopping, restaurants, and beach activiity your heart would ever desire.

About Doug

This is a picture of my wife, myself and our two sons. We live in Topeka, KS and love going to warm beach weather. We love all the activities, shopping, and wonderful food on the island. We have been going to St. Maarten for almost 20 years and finally decided that this was the perfect location to keep coming back to. It is the perfect location as the access to the beach and town cannot be beaten. Also, you are a short walk or drive away from grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping.

Doug purchased this villa in 2010

Why Doug chose Philipsburg

We discovered St. Maarten 20 years ago and this villa almost 8 years ago. We know you will enjoy this beautiful location with great views of the ocean and a short convenient walk to shopping, beach activities, restaurants, and ice cream shops! We're proud of our vacation property and know that you will want to keep coming back.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My Wife, my son and myself had a wonderful time at your villa. It was clean, comfortable and full of supplies. The location was great and we felt very safe.



Everything we needed was in the kitchen. The TV and wireless were nice. The bathrooms were beautiful. Frank and Sandy, your onsite managers, were also very helpful and kind.



I can't think of any improvements we would suggest.



We would definitely recommend your villa to our friends and family. Once we travel a bit more and explore the world I'm sure we'll realize that your villa will be one of the best and come again.

outstanding location & quality villa on Great Bay

  • 5 of 5

I have to say that the communication and support from the owner Doug was superb making us feel really confident that the villa would more than meet our expectations. The location on the beach could not be better . Far enough down the beach to keep it quiet and close enough to walk into town for bar, restaurants and shopping.

the villa furnishings were beautiful with everything we could possibly need and more. it was so relaxing just to walk out the door and either sit by the pool or walk out the gate into such a quiet beach.

Jim, who looks after the site was a tremendous help with information and sorting out minor problems that came up.

All in all I would highly recommend the Villas . You could not fail to enjoy the villa, the site and location in Phillipsburg

Most Enjoyable and Relaxing Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We would like to Thank Doug & Becky for sharing their "Home Away from Home" with us. It is everything we expected and more. This is our 2nd time at the villas. We opt to just relax and enjoy our vacation by the pool & villa this time. There was no need to travel around the island when everything was right there in front of us.We enjoyed grilling out with our guests. Went to the Bakery a few blocks over for our daily fix of bakery goods. And Suki's had the essentials we needed. It is close to shopping and restaurants. Jim, the property manager is so friendly and helpful in arranging taxi's and tours if needed.Becky has did a great job with the inside decor. The rooms are very quiet and comfortable each with their own bathrooms. We could not of asked for a better place to spend our vacation.And that view that we woke up to every morning was simply breath taking. We hope to return soon. Thanks Again! Nancy & Charlie Keller, Rochester, Mn

Owner's Response: I agree with you. While our villa is a great place to branch out and enjoy the island, there is nothing more relaxing than reading a good book, enjoying the view, and dipping into the pool from time to time to cool off. Thank you for all your compliments and we hope to see you again soon. Doug

Excellent accomodations

  • 5 of 5

The time spent at your villa was excellent. You have thought of everything to make it a very enjoyable vacation. The unit was super clean and well organized. The location is perfect and very quiet.

Jim does a fantastic job. He is always working around the grounds. For example he cleaned the edge of the pool, nearly every day. Also besides being very personable, was very helpful in arranging some things for us.

Also he has lots of information on things happening in the area.

Thanks!

Our stay at Villa # 2 Villas at Great Bay

  • 5 of 5

Villa #2 is in my opinion one of the better villas located on the property. Not that there is anything wrong with the other villas. I say this because this villa has its own little grass courtyard and the furnishings inside the villa couldn't have been nicer or cleaner. This property is absolutely gorgeous. The convenience to the boardwalk, restaurants, small grocery stores and Front Street are a very short walk away.

I had the chance to meet the owners, Doug and Becky, and they were very nice and helpful with suggestions on things to do. Jim the property manager was also very pleasant as well as helpful. All in all this is a very impressive vacation villa with a awesome pool, beach and killer views.

The property is small enough so it is not overran with other guests like at a large resort. Judging from what I saw on my beach walks I would have to say this is probably the nicest and best located place to stay on the beach. I would recommend this property if you want to get away from it all or if you want activities, it is a short walk to restaurants and the boardwalk.

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to stay at your beautiful villa.
