OCEAN'S EDGE, AWESOME VIEW OF ST. BARTS FROM THE POOL

Dawn Beach Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths plus patio shower (Sleeps 6)

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
"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!

Thanks,

Chris M.

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.

AWESOME INDEED

  • 5 of 5
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.

Owner's Response: Hello, and thank you for your review, which is much appreciated. I am happy that you enjoyed your vacation and that staying at Villa Sea Watch was instrumental in making your vacation a most memorable one. Probably the biggest problem people have is deciding whether or not to stay at the villa's ocean-side patio and pool, just steps away from the full service wet bar, watching St. Barths, looking for dolphins, swimming, or walking to the beach or Busby's Beach Bar! We get it. We have the same dilemma too! Hopefully part of your enjoyment was getting up to watch the sunrise from the patio, with a cup of joe, listening to the surf and the sugar birds. I hope so, it's soooo peaceful.

Once again, I thank you for your compliments and hope to you come back to our awesome Villa Sea Watch for your next vacation or special occassion. Until then, enjoy your summer.

RELAXATION

  • 5 of 5
I have only one complaint - our stay was much too short. The home is very comfortable. The pool terrific and the views outstanding. The weather perfect. My wife and I along with another couple were very much in need of a break from work and this year's miserable winter. Villa Sea Watch provided everything necessary to enable a truly relaxing vacation. The villa is also just a short drive to great beaches and excellent restaurants like Canoa.

We were happy to have you as our guests at Villa Sea Watch and hope to have you again, I am also glad to hear that you had such fun, which is easy to do from Sea Watch. I am sure you enjoyed the patio and pool right on the ocean, with its turquoise waters and view of St. Barts. As you know, Dawn Beach, one of the most beautiful on the island, is a short walk away. And did you enjoy the Westin's beach bar with snack food and drinks, right on the water? I hope you also took advantage of eating on their fabulous patio that overlooks that magnificenet palm lined pool and ocean. So glad you all had a great time.

Thank you for taking the time to send this review. We love it when our guests truly enjoy the awesome views and amenaties of Sea Watch.
Hope to see you again,

GREAT VACATION, ONE OF OUR BEST

  • 5 of 5
Me and my husband were staying at this amazing villa for 5 days. When we came there was a welcome basket with goodies and vine awaiting us!
The villa and swimming pool is great. Villa has everything one needs, really everything. It is very beautiful, comfortable, with big bedrooms, each has its own bathroom. We were staying in master suit on the second floor - huge room with king size bed and big beautiful bathroom. Kitchen has everything you need for your stay.
There is a library in the house - you can find any book of your choice to read. Or you can watch TV at night sitting comfortably in the living room. Or the best way to spend evening is to go for a swim in the great swimming pool. Most of our time we spend by the swimming pool, morning- having breakfast at the patio area by swimming pool, then sitting in the shade during the day, when it gets hot, and then evening swim. The best part - there is nobody around, just you, your companion (s), and the sound of waves from the ocean. We were watching beautiful St. Barth facing the pool and small yachts passing by somewhere far in the horizon. It looked like a fairy tale. The location is perfect - is very private in the secure community and at the same time it is very close to the town and near hotels with restaurants, and shops. I would 100% recommend to stay at this place to anyone - you won't have any regrets.
Thank you Cherie
Sincerely
Olga

GREAT GETAWAY FOR A COUPLE OR A GROUP

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a fabulous getaway at Villa Sea Watch. It is very relaxing and has a beautiful and convenient location. It provided a quiet time for the two of us to escape from our busy work life. The location is beautiful and scenic, the seaside is relaxing and the patio and pool are wonderful. The feel of the breezes on the patio and through the house were fabulous. What could be better than a breakfast of tropical fruit, great cheese and juice overlooking the sea with a fresh breeze in your face? The location was also convenient for many activities including the many beautiful beaches on the island (you can walk to Dawn beach) and the excellent restaurants. We liked being near the border of the Dutch and French sides. We also took advantage of access to St Barths and Anguilla by ferry and of the opportunities for snorkeling. We also had great fun at Grand Case which has excellent restaurants and a mini Mardi Gras. The villa has three comfortable bedrooms all with great views, balconies and great airflow. It will easily accomodate three couples or a family group. Access to internet, having a washer and dryer and having a fully functional kitchen made our vacation very easy and realxing. It also has a large TV (which we did not watch). We cannot wait to go back!

WE NEVER WANTED TO LEAVE!!!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a wonderful week at Sea Watch in Dawn Beach Estates over Christmas week 2012. The pictures on the website did not do the location and house justice as the real thing surpassed the description. Our family of 5 (3 teens) had more than enough space in the three bedrooms and the common areas of the house which allowed for many comfortable and relaxing days of enjoyment. The air conditioning in the bedrooms worked great and allowed for comfortable sleeping though we did leave the windows open as well to hear the roar of the surf. The house location perched on the edge of the ocean with incredible vistas and “killer” morning sunrises, made this house a real winner!
The house’s location just around the bend from the main portion of Dawn Beach allowed for easy access when the kids wanted to go solo to the beach or to grab a bite to eat.
The security in Dawn Beach Estates made us feel very comfortable but we never felt there would be any issues, which there were not.
The house’s location between the Phillipsburg and Dawn Beach/Orient Beach areas allowed for easy car access to all the good eating spots on the island including Grand Case and Marigot but the best part was the lack of traffic in the area of the island where the house is located. There are a number of local food stores and restaurants within a mile or two from the house including the cluster of places around Oyster Pond but the larger supermarkets were also just a 5-10 minute drive away. We got great use of the kitchen as it was well equipped for preparing all meals.
The best part was the pool and deck where our family spent most of our time. The Wi-Fi and Cable TV worked great and allowed our teenage kids to stay connected while still being far away from things. We felt we were in someone's comfortable home and not just in a bare-bones rental unit.

We will most certainly return to Sea Watch in the future.
Thanks Cherie!!
