Indulging in island spa treatments on your own private patio and succumbing to enchanting sunsets. Sunsets are mezmerising and magical every time - a perfect haven to relax unwind and sip cocktails and watch the ebb and flow of the tides as the skies change in unusual patterns each evening.

This is a perfect ocean paradise - you wont want to leave !

2. Private and hidden venue to enjoy your own well deserved vacation, and

3. Easy access to local food and culture.

This place has it all and more ! We have an FAQ list for you to help with choices and make an informed decision.

Villa Incognito - by Tim Robbins

Meet me Incognito baby,

We’ll soon leave our past behind us,

The present is always a mystery,

As the future never fails to remind us.

Once we’re alone Incognito,

We’ll remove our inhibitions.

But though we be free as jaybirds,

At no time will we take off our masks.

Cinderella went Incognito,

And it’s said that she had a ball.

It’s always fun at Incognito,

Incognito is our very best hope.

I’ll meet you where the sun always shines,

So do join me Incognito,

You know that I’ll never tell.

We’ll sneak in the back door of Heaven,

and Stroll unnoticed on the white Sandy beach.

InCognito

InCognito

There, every day’s a magical surprise.

Where truth tells all the best lies.”

Guest: Wendy and Thommy (Ontario, Canada )



Our family spent a week at Villa Incognito the beginning of May and loved it! The house was clean, beautifully decorated with lovely high ceilings in the living room and situated right on the ocean. We'd have a relaxing breakfast at the Villa, lounge around the pool, snorkel or go for a walk along the beach and then drive to various beaches. There is air conditioning in the bedrooms but we never used it because there was more then enough breeze to make sleeping comfortable. The bathrooms were a bit outdated but they are going to be renovated along with the kitchen which I have to say was very well stocked! Plenty of plates, pots, cutlery and cooking utensils, there was even a nice bbq grill out on the patio.

Although we were only about 8 minutes from the airport the odd plane that flew over was not disturbing at all. There were a number of restaurants to go to within walking distance from the Villa but you'll still want to rent a car for getting groceries and travelling around the island. Pelican Key beach is rocky and difficult to get into without beach shoes so if you have any bring them, otherwise you can still enjoy walking along the beach. We're not "resort" people so the privacy and quietness of the house was perfect for us.

THIS IS REALLY NICE!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Villa Incognito from Feb. 08 to Feb. 22, 2014. This was our first trip to St. Maarten - we were looking for something "different" for last month, and we were not disappointed.
The Villa is nicely decorated and well outfitted. It has plenty of space for a family or group, but it was just the two of us, and we loved the space. The private pool adds to the enjoyment of the property. It is nicely situated and we found it to be a good base for our daily "explorations". Most days found us leaving the Villa in the morning and heading out to one of the many beaches for most of the rest of the day. We particularly liked Pinel Island, Orient Beach, Baie Rouge, Grand Case and Friar's Bay. Lunch at Pedro's at Orient Beach was great - as was the live entertainment! In Grand Case, we highly recommend Ocean 82, which is relatively new. We enjoyed our first meal there so much that we just had to back the following week. The Oysters on the half shell had just arrived that morning on the Air France Flight and were fabulous. The entire meal on both occasions was fabulous and the service was friendly and unhurried. A great experience.
We found that on most days we would spend the later afternoon and evening at the Villa, enjoying the pool and the beach, the sunsets, and barbecuing our evening dinners. Perfect days!
Kim and Sandy have obviously given a lot of thought, and taken a lot of care, to the way that Villa Incognito is set up and looked after. The incomparable Olive looked after us very well when we were there - she is an incredible lady who makes you feel like one of her family.
We found this to be a real premier experience and are seriously contemplating going back again. The only thing that we would do differently is stay longer.

PIECE OF PARADISE IN ST. MARTIN!

  • 5 of 5
Definately Villa Incognito is the place in St. Martin, with excellent accommodations and exceptional view of St. Martin sea and sunset. Kim and Sandy were able to transport a small piece of paradise to St. Martin. Thanks guys for sharing it with us. I sincerely hope to get back there again!

GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
I loved this home- Felt like lifestyles of the rich and famous! I agree with everything other reviewers said, but there were a few things I wish I had known. Keep in mind I did love, love this home and would go back in a heartbeat

There are really 2 big bedrooms. The 2nd bedroom has a retractable wall that takes one bedroom and divides it in 2. Not sure there would be enough privacy for 3 couples but perfect for 2 couples

The bed downstairs is extremely comfortable. The bed upstairs is more firm. I much preferred the bed downstairs

The master bedroom doesn't have drapes and gets light very early. My husband had a mask from the airplane so that helped. If light bothers you, bring a sleeping mask

Wish there were screens on all the glass doors downstairs. We had to use the air more than we wanted to so the mosquitoes wouldn't get in

At night there are some sort of crickets that live in the vegetation and they make noise once it gets dark. Maybe that happens everywhere on the island, not sure. My sister in law is a light sleeper (she was downstairs) and she ended up getting some ear plugs and was fine after that

Again, these things are minor but thought I would share with other travelers so you can bring anything additional that is needed to help you enjoy this home even more.

The pool was warm and fantastic
The view from the plushy lounge chairs on the deck was amazing
There were tons of beach towels and floats to use in the pool and ocean



I hope to return one day

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback - im sure that guests will find it useful.
When you return there will be California Shutters on the bedroom windows. Presently the foilage (large banana tree) acts as a huge privacy screen. Not sure we can influence the crickets ! - at times they are all over the islands and the natural sound tends to blend in with the tranquility of the ocean.
We also have a "bigass" fan which provides the work of approx. 8 cooling fans in the living room.
We look forward to hosting you on your next trip.

COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER!!

  • 5 of 5
Kim and Sandys villa is just beautiful and was the perfect retreat for our girlfriend vacation. The location was super, beach was very nice and private, property was exceptionally clean and well maintained. We would highly recommend it. The VRBO information was accurate and complete - true reflection of what we found when we got there.

PARADISE FOUND

  • 5 of 5
We just came back from an incredible week stay at Villa Incognito. Coming home every night from a busy day touring the island was relaxing and truly a peaceful and beautiful way to unwind. Sandy and Kim's paradise retreat must be seen! I wish it were for sale. I could spend every day for the rest of my life here. We enjoyed being so close to so many wonderful places to visit. The island is the best we've been to, and since there is so much left to do, we shall return! Don't miss out on this rental. It is a perfect place to stay on your visit to St. Maarten. One week is not enough tho, try to make it two! There is so much to do.

Owner's Response: Thanks to you for embracing our beachhouse and looking after it as if it was your own! Our aim is for your experience to exceed expectations and we trust it did. We hope to have you back again (for at least 2 weeks).
We are continually upgrading the beach house - last month we built an outdoor bar area at the barbeque which has worked out fantastically well. We have a few more improvements in mind for your next stay !
Cheers to you guys.

VILLA INCOGNITO

  • 5 of 5
I would recommend Villa Incognito to anyone wanting an amazing vacation experience! Everything about this villa was on point. The pictures don't do it justice. The views and ocean access are beyond amazing. You can relax in your own private pool and you are walking distance from many great restaurants, bars and activities. Sandy and Kim were very helpful with booking and recommendations. They gave us a ton of good advice and restaurants to try out. Villa Incognito is up to date and provides all of the essentials that you need to have a great time. I felt like I was at a five star resort and their housekeeper Olive was awesome.
