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
Why Luke chose Philipsburg
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.
What makes this villa unique
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?
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!
