We are a super busy family with 3 growing boys looking for the perfect place for our vacation and when we first saw this property in 2010 we knew it was the perfect vacation home for all of us with the large open spaces and oversized terraces and close proximity to the beach. It has something to offer each one of us.
The Owner purchased this villa in 2010
We have always loved the Oyster Pond and Dawn Beach area of St. Maarten. The very secluded and quiet “Dawn Beach” is the perfect getaway yet close enough in proximity to all the excitement you want and it has one of the nicest beaches with great snorkeling. St. Maarten is one of the few Caribbean islands left where you can still get a beer right on the beach for a mere few dollars, or have lunch, a burger, fries and a cold beer for under 10 USD.
The villa has all the comforts of a private luxurious vacation home with high standards of upkeep and attention to detail, making it an ideal instant vacation. Spend your days lounging by the pool or go for a stroll to the beach. At night you can dine at five star restaurants on the Dutch or French side in St. Martin, both a very short drive away. If you decide to stay in, we can have one of our private chefs whip up a delicious personalized meal for you or pick up a fresh lobster at Captain Olivers and create your own magic... Watch stunning sunrises over Dawn Beach and watch the luxury yachts come and go from St. Bart's. Bring your binoculars; you never know what you might see...If you’re up to some shopping you can go to Philipsburg where you will find plenty of deals. Watch out for the little monkeys on the side of the road on your way to Oyster Pond, they are adorable...

walk to beach, snorkeling, great restaurants or beach bars made for a
perfect week. also just a short drive to great shopping, orient beach
and our favorite street in Grand Case. Thanks for sharing your little
piece of paradise!! Mark & Karen
Another perfect vacation on St. Maarten!! Our second time staying at Twin Palms and again hated to leave!
The experience from the owners accommodating our mid week schedule, Rosey always keeping the villa perfect and Vikki making sure everything was right - made for a perfect week. It was truly a pleasure to rent there!!
I would also recommend "shop and Drop" for groceries, a great way to start the trip!
Thanks for allowing us to rent your Villa!!!!!!!!!!!
Villa Twin Palms is everything the reviews say it is. We were there during an extremely windy week in St. Martin. As the villa is on the windward side, the wind made Dawn Beach a bad spot to be; but the French side provided some break from the winds, and it turned out to be a wonderful week of mostly sunshine. If you do go to Dawn Beach, take the blue towels, as you will not be bothered by the Westin staff; don't order anything, or they'll ask for a room number.
The house is wonderful for a familiy with teenagers - SO roomy and livable. You get up and just want to hang out in sun by the pool. Two of the security shutters broke and there were some other minor issues, but a quick call to ReMax got things fixed quickly. We didn't have the security system code, and the key fob for that didn't work, so make sure you resolve that before coming. The sound system in the home is getting old, so the CD player basically doesn't work; and there was no place to plug in an iPod despite what the writeup says. Highly recommend having the fridge stocked wtih basics; that was a nice service, especially if you are arriving late and don't know the lay of the land. Having the cats stop for some food and attention was really fun. There is literally everything you need in the house, so don't sweat the small stuff. Poke around and you'll find everything. The minor complaints (above) were really minor. This is an incredible home, with very gracious owners, property managers and a wonderful maid. One would be very hard pressed to find anything better on the island.
If you have never been to St. Martin, or to a Caribbean island, heads up for the road situation. The roads are all narrow and in lousy condition, especially on the Dutch side by the villa. Make sure you get a 4x4 and take your time! It only takes a day to get the hang of it - everyone is really polite and careful on the road, but it's nerve-wracking at first.
For activities, look up Captain Bob Soualiga for a six-hour boat ride with only a few others on a 39-foot triple-outboard, Just an amazing way to see the island on day one or two - check out their reviews on Trip Advisor. Octopus Diving in Grand Case for the novice snorkler is incredible - ask for Sam and Jack if you can. Cherie's Cafe for a fun night of music and a wacky show at Maho Beach is awesome. And don't miss a day trip to Pinel Island.
Villa Twin Palms - a huge value over any resort, and much more 'soul!'
What a beautiful home! We loved this house. Loved the views. Loved the breezes. Loved the kitties that would come visit us daily. Loved the cleanliness. Loved meeting Rosalie. It was our home away from home for the week of Thanksgiving. Felt very safe and comfortable.
I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone!
We loved this home inside and out! The pool was a treat every morning and evening! Bed was very comfortable. Kitchen, fully equipped unlike some homes we've rented. Neighborhood is very safe and has a security guard 24/7.
We loved this home away from home. The location and home were beautiful! The pool was great every morning and evening. Kitchen was fully equipped unlike some of our prior rentals. Security guard on duty 24/7 and home has some serious "lock down" shutters. We traveled everywhere on the island and never had any problems anywhere. We were in grand case at night, when some people say it's unsafe-it was safe...pretty sure the people that say certain areas are unsafe are very sheltered.
Bed was very comfortable and breezes were great! Loved loungers by the pool as well. If we were to return to st maarten, we would stay again! Thank you!
Centrally located and a quick trip anywhere you need to go on the island. House is amazing, and a short walk to the beach, although not fit for someone who struggles with walking. Kitchen is filled with everything you need, including some food, spices and beverages from past guests, so be sure to see what you have before you go shopping. Pool is fantastic, and is a popular place for the stray kitties. View is incomparable! The only thing I recommend is when you are met at the airport/car rental, don't load up on groceries. There is a supermarket in Philipsburg, about a 20 minute drive from the airport, that has EVERYTHING. If you can get the host/ess to stop there, I recommend it. Good restaurants and bars near the home as well.
Twin Palms is convenient to the newest casinos, restaurants and spa on the island. There is also Zip Lining at the Loiterie farm with a obstacle course.....fun for all and a must.
