Guestbook comments from the owner
For selfish reasons, we are hesitant to tell the world what we think of the Villas on Great Bay in Saint Maarten. If everyone knows how TERRIFIC it is, everyone will want to stay there! We would like it to stay just as it is.....the best kept secret in the Caribbean! We have stayed there every year for the past four years and we have already booked a seven week stay for next year! We feel so comfortable there that we really do consider it our “home away from home”! At the Villas you will find what you will NEVER find at your average resort – turquoise blue Caribbean water with an uncrowded white sand beach at your doorstep, an uncrowded swimming pool, lounge chairs galore with lots of room between them, peace and quiet, privacy, and.....best of all, a management team (Frank and Sandy) who know you by name, actually CARE about you, and consistently go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable! The Villas have everything you need and, if you are missing something, Frank and Sandy will take care of it. The little nearby grocery store (Suki’s) is a great convenience and the prices are reasonable. It is great to have Philipsburg within walking distance but far enough away that you don't even notice the hustle and bustle when cruise ships are in port. Watching the beautiful cruise ships from your waterfront patio is amazing! Driving on the island is a breeze - don't hesitate to rent a car (we highly recommend Leisure Car Rental) and see the sights, visit the many beautiful beaches, experience the dining and shopping on the French side (St. Martin), and......don't miss a feed-up of ribs at one of the seaside BBQ's in Grand Case! Yummy and cheap!

A couple in their 50s who had the incredible luck to buy this small piece of paradise. We're glad to share it with our guests from all over the world.

Luke purchased this villa in 2010

We felt in love with Saint Martin during our honeymoon. We started looking for a property to purchase and we finally found this secret jewel, a villa laying on one of the best island beaches.

Our villa is inside a wonderful gated small complex called 'The Villas on Great Bay' located in a Philipsburg quiet neighbourhood but only 5 minutes walking from shopping, restaurants and beach activities.

What we love more? You can wake up in the morning sorrounded by nothing else than a perfect silence, have the breakfast in your ocean front private lanai, have a swim in the cristal waters of the bay, get sun tanned, refresh in our infinity pool and then in just 5 minutes you can be in the middle of the caribbean sparkling capital of shopping and world cuisine. Not to mention the other 36 beaches and more than 200 restaurants of the island... What are you waiting for?

ABSOLUTE PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
I cant say enough good things about The Villas On Great Bay! After researching where to stay we decided on The Villas because of all the great reviews on TripAdvisor and they were right! We traveled as a family. Myself, My husband and our 2 sons.

We were right on the beach - literally about 15 feet from the ocean! My sons went down to the water and we could keep a safe eye on them from our balcony. We were outside on the balcony/deck ALOT! It was so lovely in the evenings. We went to the local grocery store (which is about a block away) on nights we just didn't want to eat out and to save a little cash and this is where we ate! It was postcard perfect every night! We had local visitors, such as big crabs! And the local sweet dog nearby who was just as sweet as can be! Yes there was locals walking by (all friendly btw) and there were security measures (locking of iron gate, and making sure your doors are bolted) but it is and should be like that everywhere you go. We felt very SAFE!

The beds were very comfortable and the villa was just perfect for us and what we needed. The bathroom was a very good size and the water was always hot for us even at night when the 4th person went to shower!

Jim (the property manager) went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and happy. I had alot of questions and never felt like i was being a bother to ask him advice on things to do, eat, or just questions about the locals etc. He was more then happy and interested in making sure we had a great time! He gave us great tips on things to do and see. He also hooked us up with (in my opinion) the best cab driver on the island! James! We felt very safe with him and everytime we rode with him we all learned something new!

We used the pool (VERY clean) and we enjoy the garden area also at the Villas. We even saw the resident iguana that lives there! My boys had fun searching for him each day.

THANK YOU so much for making this vacation simply great. It is a family memory we will take with us forever!! And we will definitely be back soon to stay at The Villas!!!

LOVELY VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful and very relaxing vacation at the villa, it was well equipped and in a perfect location for walking to shops and delicious restaurants. We spent most of the days relaxing on the front deck, walking the beach and going for a swim. The deck was perfect it had both sun and shade all day which was great for those who like to sit in the sun and those that like to hide from it. Having the side garden was a nice addition and we always had a lovely cross breeze that kept the living area nice and cool during the day. We rented a car but had no problem finding parking on the street in front of the villa. Jim and Gina, the property managers, were very helpful and friendly and gave us some great recommendations.

EXCELLENT VACATION RENTAL!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at the Villas Feb 11 thru 19. By far one of the most relaxing vacations I have had. The villa is clean, directly on the beach and in proximity to many walkable attractions. We used the shop and drop grocery service (on the Villas on Great Bay website). That was extremely convenient, beers and breakfast food in the fridge from the get-go. Reasonable prices too. We started off the first half of vacation relaxing on the front deck and sitting on the beach. Didn\'t go to the pool once as the view from the Villa is captivating. We walked down the boardwalk (10 min walk) to eat lunch in Phillipsburg almost everyday. The food was amazing and the drinks are dirt cheap. (2 bottles for $3 and all kinds of specials). You can stay here, never need a car, and eat at a different restaurant for a month, no kidding. Jim and Gina (property managers) were fantastic. Very friendly and knowledgeable. The rest of the vacation we took taxis out to airport beach, Orient Bay, Grand Case, etc. Very beautiful island. We will be back!!

PERFECT SPOT ON THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Villa in January 2014 was wonderful - great location for walking the beach, people watching and cruise ships. An easy walk to downtown where we discovered yummy restaurants and delightful shopping areas. We had pastries from a local bakery, fresh Gouda cheese, and cooked white fish and shrimp on the furnished barbecue grill. With the perfect weather it was easy to lounge around on the deck drinking coffee in the morning and relaxing with a good book. All of our expectations were met with very hospitable hosts! Do not hesitate to take a taxi tour of the island if you don't want to rent a car. But be sure to take time to soak up the sun and warm weather.
