|Minimum Stay||5 - 7 nights|
Welcome to paradise, this new and unique beach-side Villa Namaste – an ultra luxury, multi-faceted dream house which is being described as resembling 'a hundred million dollar yacht on land'. Villa Namaste’s sea deck and pool area are unequaled in the Caribbean and St Maarten - well known for world-class yachting – yet the villa suffers NO bumpy seas - so it might well be ideal for people who put up with the latter – in order to enjoy the former..!
Villa Namaste is tastefully decorated with a modern 'beach feel', oversized windows, huge palm trees and an infinity pool that blends directly in with the ocean.
We draw inspiration from the islands’ natural beauty and culture, utilizing only the necessary elements in order to avoid competition with the unsurpassed location. Using naturally rustic materials and patterns in a modern way allows the beach house to exude sophistication without feeling ostentatious.
Features include a chique ultra modern European state of the art kitchen and oversized chefs cooking island, wood grained floor tiles, marble in bathrooms, extensive international art collection that compliments the decor, fully covered pool deck, 2 oversized concrete tanning benches, 3 outdoor showers, coral stone columns and modern features throughout.
The Master suite has its own 'birds nest' 'Zenazium' rooftop and private viewing deck. All 3 bedrooms are en-suite with an additional outside shower under the palm trees and stars.
The property is private and secure, with its own entry onto a long quiet beach of white coral sand.
There is none other like it! We guarantee that you will like it!
The Meaning of 'Namaste'
Namaste means me and you !
Namaste is an International greeting – Welcome to Villa Namaste
The Namaste Symbol is a ring of Dolphins.
Viewed from the inner to the outer ring, the symbols displayed in this mandala include: 'Earth', 'Peace', Dolphins and 'Mir' - peace. The symbol is blue which means peace and wisdom!
On the odd occasion or if you are lucky (or patient) you will see dolphins from the pool deck !
Namaste has a profound spiritual significance. It is the acknowledgement of oneness. When two people greet each other with a “Namaste”, it is an act of recognizing the presence of divinity in the other as it is in oneself.
I honor the place in you, which is of love, of truth, of light and of peace.
'The Spirit within me salutes the Spirit in you'
Namaste is an especially deep form of respect. Conceptually, speaking 'Namaste' pays homage to the inner light in all living beings.
Besides all the spiritual significance and deep meaning, Namaste also has a social relevance. Namaste crosses all barriers.
Namaste allows individuals to come together energetically to a place of connection and timelessness, free from the bonds of ego-connection. If it is done with deep feeling in the heart and with the mind surrendered, a deep union of spirits can blossom. There is no better place to make that connection than on the beach with the ocean breeze at Villa Namaste in the Dutch Caribbean.
That we guarantee !
We are regular travellers to St Maarten and enjoy our time on this beautiful 'cosmopolitan' island. After many years of searching , we found our perfect 'piece of paradise' - now fully updated the exclusive 'Villa Namaste'. Transformed into our ideal beachside vacation Villa with every feature that you could wish to have. There is no Villa closer to the beach and the ocean than this!!!!

Which is more important to you: form or function? At Villa Namaste it won’t matter, as this villa is spot on in both aspects. The presentation of the home is absolutely amazing and while renovating, the owners gave great attention to details. We were especially impressed with the stellar craftsmanship of the installation of the lovely ceramic floors. However, their best renovation feature, by far, was the removal of the sea wall and installation of the lip pool. Being able to sit in/near the pool and look at the ocean was a huge plus! Further, when members of our party were paddle boarding or snorkeling in the water, we felt that we still had a connection with them. Although there were only two poolside lounge chairs, they were plenty since the owners provided two additional and comfy Fatboys for lounging and napping.
The color scheme was beautifully carried throughout the living area and kitchen. The bright apple green cabinets were mimicked not only in the accessories (such as the pillows on the couch) but were carried through in the dishes. Even the storage containers and travel coffee carafes sported the cheery green!
The kitchen was hands down the best appointed kitchen we’ve ever found in a rental! The kitchen cabinets were supplemented by the island, which offered large storage drawers on both sides—which allowed us to keep everything neatly tucked out of view.
We were also impressed that the owners supplied us with all of the cleaning utensils and supplies that we’d normally be expected to purchase (paper towels, garbage bags, dishwashing and dishwasher soap, etc.) that we needed to help keep the villa clean. However, that wasn’t a problem, since Olive (Housekeeper Extraordinaire!) arrived daily to tidy up. The owners also allowed us free access to the laundry room and detergent. Amazingly, they even provided liquid soap for showering!
Just in case you’re wondering, we are well-seasoned travelers who’ve been renting villas in both the USVI and BVI since the early ‘90’s. As such, be a bit difficult to impress. Nonetheless, we easily ranked Villa Namaste at the very top of the long list of beautiful homes in which we’ve stayed. If you have a chance, you should definitely treat yourself to at least a week there!
Villa Namaste from the elegant decor through out and the sunset views every night this villa had it all. Walking distance to restaurants,shopping and grocery store quick car ride. Housekeeper Olive absolutely lovely and helpful with any of your needs. My only negative is that we couldn't stay longer..it was a dream holiday. Thank you Sandy and Kim for sharing your amazing villa with us..Namaste
Our vacation at Villa Namaste couldn't have been more perfect. We made the trip to St. Maarten with our adult children to renew our wedding vows on the beach. The unbelievable views and sounds of the crashing waves from the deck and infinity pool are breathtaking. This villa far exceeded our expectations. Kim and Sandy have thought of every comfort (the beds are awesome!!). And...Olive is the bomb!! We had so much fun visiting with her. When we hugged her goodbye on our last day we knew we would be seeing her again. I can't imagine staying anywhere
else on the island. Villa Namaste is the one place we've stayed on vacation that we know we will be going back to. Thank you Kim and Sandy for sharing your beautiful island home with us. You were fabulous to work with and we can't wait to go back. P.S. We loved La Vie en Rose - one of the oldest French restaurants in Marigot. Excellent food and service.
We had such a fabulous time at Villa Namaste it is hard to know where to start!! This place is a true gem – the views from the private deck are unbeatable. They must be seen to be believed – even your beautiful pictures cannot do the incredible views from the infinity pool justice!
The location was a dream – just hidden enough from the crowds to feel secluded, but within walking distance of great food and drinks. All the recommendations that you provided us with were spot on – we especially enjoyed a visit from Chef Mariana. It was such a treat to have an amazing meal prepared for us on one of our last nights at the house! And last but certainly not least, we can’t forget to mention Olive, the villa’s housekeeper, who always kept us laughing and made us feel right at home! We cannot imagine staying anywhere else on St.Maarten now that we have stayed here.
Thank you again Kim and Sandy for letting us stay in your oasis – we can’t wait to book our next trip!
Until next time,
Greg, Melissa, Sebastian, and Lauren (Connecticut)
Excellent home, well kept plenty of room. kitchen , appliances, are all up- to date and fabulous. Patio and pool are so relaxing. Olive is great, all her recommendations are spot on, close to the all the bars and restaurants. Perfect for group trip, a few couples or a family.
My friends and I highly recommend villa Namaste! I would pick this place again for the ultimate vacation experience; you will be impressed! We were thrilled arriving at the gorgeous Namaste, we were in awe as we first walked in. It was even more beautiful than the pictures online capture, and Olive’s enthusiastic welcome was warm and heartfelt, and the excitement started right then!
Namaste has a perfect balance of luxury matched by comfort. It offered us (three couples) adequate space to relax, yet the intimacy to celebrate together the birthday we went for. The setting was unreal. The beach is steps away and it was quiet, clean and perfect. We couldn’t stay out of the luxurious pool! When they say well equipped kitchen they mean it! Spices, condiments, appliances and a large space to cook together and share meals.
What an ideal location; we were close to groceries, great bars & cafés. And the best parts of both the Dutch and the French sides were easily accessible (by car). We spent our days happily at the house but we also discovered the many beaches of the island. The recommendations provided by Kim & Sandy were thorough and really helpful. They were great to deal with, prompt and helpful, and we ended up staying in their other location afterwards as a result!
Upscale neighbourhood of Pelican Key, close to all amenities including beaches, bars, restaurants, fitness clubs and boating activities. Close to the airport to save travel time but not too close that you hear noise ! We have a FAQ sheet for all guests - ask for the FAQ when comparing St Maarten locations !
