Our villa is located on Guana Bay in St. Maarten, Netherlands Antilles. The area surrounding the villa is nestled between the foot of a large hill and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. We are 3-1/2 hours from New York and 3 hours from Miami. Both Continental and American Airlines service the island. We are on the Dutch side of the island, 25 minutes from Juliana Airport and 15 minutes from Downtown Philipsburg. Philipsburg has shopping, fine restaurants, medium and expensively priced. This is where the cruise ships dock. We are on the tradewind, or windward side, which offers great winds 12 months a year. We are 25 minutes from Marigot, the capitol of the French side, and 20 minutes from Grand Case where many of the finest restaurants are located.
Mud Baths: You have to try the mud baths on Tintamarre Island; a short excursion from Saint Maarten! You can then run into the ocean au natural to wash off the mud and feel like your skin is baby smooth!
Celine Party Cruise: Try an evening cruise of the lagoon on the Celine; a beautiful catamaran where you can have an open bar and make stops at 3 restaurants to sample their food and drink....a great deal and a lot of fun!
Golden Eagle Round The Island Cruise: This usually leaves only on Friday but is a must do! It's only around $100 but well worth the price. You will spend the whole day on a 65' catamaran and have open bar, visit the mud baths at Tintamarre Island, snorkel at two locations and stop for a sit down lunch in Grand Case, the culinary capital of the Caribbean on the French Side. You should not miss this adventure!
