Welcome to Villa Sea Watch, an elegant Mediterranean villa with Caribbean décor. Nearly 3000 square feet of Caribbean open views, its pool and patio sitting sentinel right over the ocean, with amazing views of St. Barths, St. Kitts and St. Eustatia. Sea Watch has three bedrooms, three and a half baths, and is newly remodeled, inside and out. Private, private, private! Caribbean splendor describes Villa Sea Watch, enveloped by lush tropical gardens, plenty of private parking, and every room enjoys ocean views. Every bedroom is en suite and has its own private balcony over the sea.
If you do feel like tearing yourself away from this luxurious villa for happy hour, gorgeous Dawn Beach, is just a short walk away. It’s the five-star Westin Resort and Casino's beach bar and seaside pool, lined with tall palm trees on both sides. Gorgeous… and fun. A must see. Mr. Busby's Beach Bar and several other four star restaurants also nearby.
After a day at the beach, the peace and serenity of Sea Watch are so very welcome. Party or relax in the sun’s rays and refresh yourself in the pool, perched on the cliff's edge. The full service wet bar is right next to the patio! Make yourself a frozen drink, turn on the stereo, sit on a lounge and relax. Enjoy outdoor dining with unbeatable ambiance. El fresco dining is easy, too, with our fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Or enjoy grilling fresh seafood or steaks on the patio with the spectacular views all around you, the sound of the surf and a summer breeze. If you are not into al fresco dining, the large formal dining room, sunny breakfast room also overlook the sea. All dining areas enjoy spectacular views. Afterwards, relax and enjoy the piece and thrill of stargazing. Shooting stars are common from Sea Watch's patio.
PRIVACY is provided by your own tropical gardens of palm trees, fig trees and bougainvillea, that envelop one side of the patio, and wrap around the rest of the villa. Tropical gardens and turquoise sea! Privacy is also due to the dead end road. Your unparalleled views are the turquoise sea, St. Barths and tropical paradise; the sounds are the lull of the surf and the sugarbirds in the morning.
Conceived for those who truly enjoy luxury and getting away from it all. Come to relax, romance and play. Come and listen to the sounds of the sea… Come to Sea Watch.
We first fell in love with Villa Sea Watch, in Dawn Beach Estates, in 1992, after falling in love with St. Maarten/St. Martin in 1983. We enjoy the privacy of the estates and Dawn Beach, only steps away. We have stayed on other parts of the island, but nothing beats the feel of community here, surrounded by mountains and turquoise ocean, and some of the best food anywhere! We truly enjoy great food and drink, and we can stay right in our own area, nestled between Dawn Beach and Oyster Pond with its lovely European looking marina, a short distance to French St. Martin. We absolutely LOVE romantic, fun, SXM!
Cherie Santasiero purchased this villa in 2005
Living luxury right over the ocean! A short walk to Dawn Beach and Westin Resort and Casino, and 4 & 5 star restaurants everywhere right in the neighborhood, yet peaceful and quiet, away from the noise. From Villa Sea Watch, you can walk to Dawn Beach, one of the most beautiful displays of turquoise water anywhere. Sleep or relax to the soothing sound of the surf. If you like snorkeling, Dawn Beach has a live coral reef! Busby's Beach Bar is the best, day or night, among other great restaurants, right on Oyster Bay. Walk to The Westin for happy hour, also right on the beach.
We have stayed in different villas and luxury resorts, but Villa Sea Watch is conveniently located to great food, beach, great beach bars and the best, tremendous views of St. Barth's, and the most incredible turquoise ocean. It feels like home. We wanted to be on the ocean, but not right on a beach, because we like more privacy. The villa sits atop lava rock, so it is protected, yet only a few feet from the ocean. Every room overlooks the sea. The pool hangs over the ocean's edge, and there is always a breeze. We eat and live on the patio! Of course, the pool and patio just happen to be a few steps away from the fully equipped wet bar! The people of St. Maarten are sweet and friendly, too.
This is in an elite, private, quiet gated community. People know each other and are friendly. This somewhat off-the-main path community has everything: glorious beach with a live coral reef, fantastic beach bars, Westin Resort within walking distance, which has a full service casino, and several restaurants. We can drive to 'the action' if we like; what's best is that we come home to a peaceful evening. The tropical gardens surround the villa and patio/pool. We enjoy peaceful nights sitting on the patio watching a magnificent sky loaded with stars we never get to see at home (and we live in the country!). We also have the most incredible photos of the full moon over the ocean. You can see St. Barths, St. Kitts, Nevis and Eustacia in the distance. Heavenly.
"Cherie, what a fab trip we had. The house was just as we remembered it to be (had been there last in 90's). Our friends truly loved it as much as we did. Hopefully we can return next year! We have some great photos as well as memories. Too bad we lost so much money at the Westin ;( Good fun!
This beautiful oceanfront home with lovely grounds and pool has it all. The home's three bedrooms with private baths are spacious and comfortable with beautiful ocean views. The view from the patio looking out over the mountains and ocean is spectacular. It is very close to a sandy beach down the road and the property it is located in a safe and quiet gated community. Enjoyed hours in the pool and sunning on the patio. Morning breakfasts looking out on the ocean were relaxing and memorable. Kitchen is perfect for meal preparation with plenty of kitchen ware. Loved exploring the Island and it's location is an easy ride to both Phillipsburg and Marigot. Plenty of grocery stores, shopping, and great restaurants close by. Already planned my next vacation with Cherie who is wonderful and easy to work with and accommodating to our vacation needs.
Five friends and I just returned from a wonderful two-week stay in St Martin at Sea Watch. We spent a lot of time just hanging around the pool. It was hard to leave such a perfect location - beautiful view with warm breezes and super comfortable accommodations. Great sleeping too with surf in our ears. All the arrangements for the Villa rental and transportation to and from Sea Watch were easy thanks to Cherie. The property caretakers were most helpful and very friendly. Thanks to the owner's suggestions, we spent fun times at Dawn Beach, Busby's, Grand Case, Marigot, Phillipsburg, Captain Oliver's and on a snorkeling trip to several islands. Definitely our best vacation so far. All the great things everyone said below are true.
We stayed for 10 days in January 2015. This was our best vacation ever. The villa felt like home immediately and the view was wonderful. Cherie, the owner was very helpful and gave us suggestions for things to do and places to see. St. Maarten is a beautiful island with great scenery but we soon realized our favorite place on the island was at Sea Watch by the pool. We decided to save some excursions for next year and spend more time at Sea Watch. We will be coming back.
My family and I rented Villa Sea Watch for a 10 day stay in August of this year to celebrate my 50th birthday. After many weeks of research online, Sea Watch moved to the top of my list of choices and I can only say how glad I am it was my final choice. The villa couldn’t have been more comfortable and everything about it made the vacation a very memorable one.
The villa location is unbeatable. It’s centrally located on the island, within walking distance of beautiful Dawn Beach and yet it’s just secluded enough for the perfect private vacation. The view from the patio and pool is spectacular and we spent the majority of our time at the villa basking in the outdoor area enjoying the pool and the ocean breezes.
In addition to the location, one of the best things about the villa is the layout. All three bedrooms have a spectacular ocean view and their own private baths. The large master suite is on the upper level and the other two bedrooms are on the main level with the kitchen and main dining area. The lower lever has the living area, a bar and a smaller dining area with a spectacular view and easy access to the pool area.
We were very impressed with the supermarkets on the island and had no problem finding everything we needed to prepare meals at the villa. The kitchen is well stocked with everything needed and the bar located on the lower level was very handy for making frozen drinks for the long days by the pool.
The villa was our main focus for the vacation as we really wanted to get away from it all – but we did do a few other things during out stay including visits to Dawn Beach & Orient Beach, a day sailing trip to Prickly Pear and Anguilla (beautiful) and an afternoon on Pinel Island – highly recommended for relaxing!
My last mention has to be the fantastic owner/manager Cherie. She promptly answered every question I had prior to our trip, made the rental process easy and had a fantastic gift basket waiting for us upon our arrival. The support staff was also great, including Alain (suggested by Cherie for our car rental and highly recommended); Alice, who guided us to the villa and gave us the information we needed to start our stay; and Paul, just a phone call away and very helpful for any questions about the villa.
We’re definitely hoping to return to St. Maarten in the future and without a doubt Villa Sea Watch will be our home away from home. After our experience there I can’t imagine staying anywhere else!
We love love Villa Sea Watch. We were speechless when we arrived at the Villa. The Villa was located on a sea cliff and the views were to die for. The home is beautiful and comfortable. All the bedrooms were spacious, had a bathroom and a view. The kids love swimming in the infinity pool everyday. Everything was convenient to the Villa. We love walking to Dawn Beach and swimming in the warm waters. We visited Marigot on the French side and enjoyed the views from Fort St. Louis. The kids had a blast doing extreme Zip-Lining at Loterie Farm. My husband and I enjoyed the Treehouse Lounge at Loterie Farm. We had lunch at Busbys and the food was great. We also visited Friar's Bay Beach and love the white sands. We enjoyed the French side more than the Dutch side. However, I did go shopping on Front Street in Phillipsburg. There were so many things to do in the island but our favorite was just hanging out at the Villa having our meals, enjoying spectacular views, swimming in the pool and feeling the cool ocean breeze. Lastly, Alain, Roselia and Hippolito were helpful they gave us great information about the island.
Thank you again for renting your beautiful Villa to us we had a memorable vacation and will definitely recommend your home to family and friends! :-)
Despite the fact that our vacation in St. Martin was 3 months ago, we constantly reminisce how wonderful it was, in very large part due to Cherie’s house. Beautiful lodging, well-positioned on the hillside with dream-like views. Absolutely ideal for my family to gather from our varied lives and spend time together. My 20-year old son declared this to be best vacation ever. I have to agree. Thank you Cherie for being a wonderful hostess, and letting us live in your lovely home in Dawn Beach.
Beautiful Dawn Beach short walk and Westin Resort and Casio, great beach bars and restaurants right in our area. Awesome! Beautiful Butterfly Farm nearby; Orient Beach nearby/nude optional, lots of great beach bars, Phillipsburg 10 min away with tons of shops, beach/boardwalk; Close to some of the best restaurants and beach bars.
