A spacious family villa, this property is ideally suited for multi-generational vacations.

The private pool on the deck allows for quick dips day and night. Just a 5 minute walk down to Dawn Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, will give you access to some of the best snorkeling on the island. At the far end you can walk to a gourmet dinner and gambling at the Westin Hotel.
All the beaches on Saint Maarten have public access. Some are deserted, but many have both beach bars as well as activities, including a variety of water sport equipment rental. Every day you can go to a different beach.
A duty free port, SXM has some great bargain shopping. Phillipsburg has a large selection of beautiful jewelry and watches as well as a long boardwalk on a lovely beach.
Things to Do: Margot, on the French side has European designer shopping as well as a large outdoor market. This is also where you can get the ferry to Anguilla for a day trip.
Saint Maarten has many excursions available from sailing on a 10 meter America's Cup yacht to a tour on a Pirate Ship. Fishing, sailing, windsurfing, Jet skiing, snorkeling and scuba diving and para sailing are all easily accessible on the island. There is an activity for everyone.
A minute drive away is the best baby beach n the island, Galion Beach/Coconut Grove. As we affectionately call it, Coco Lobo is just past the Butterfly Farm, where you can witness an impressive display of Lepidopterology and botany in the early mornings as the butterflies break out of their cocoons. Coco Lobo is also a popular kite sailing local; always exciting to watch.
House has spacious living areas including a dinning room table that seats 12, everyone can come together in the evening to share their various adventures. A beautiful view across the ocean to the twinkling lights of St. Barths, even at night the view can't be beat.
Born in the USA, we moved to Montreal, Canada in the 1960's. We have the splendid privilege to enjoy some of the best skiing on the East coast and then fly down to Saint Maarten to some of the best beaches in the Caribbean! We custom built this villa so that we can accommodate all of our 4 children and their families. An added bonus has been that we can travel with our dogs too. Life is good!
Situated on the eastern border between Dutch/French Saint Maarten we are located in an area developed for villas. We avoid the extremely tourist areas without losing any convenience. Just 10 minutes from Phillipsburg everything we need is nearby. The French side has great restaurants and excellent convenience stores; French baguettes, croissants and pain au chocolate every morning.
With a spectacular view of the beach and ocean and the gentle trade winds our home is a true paradise. Even at night we have the twinkling lights of St. Barths in our sites. A private garden behind the house is a great place for morning coffee and if you are lucky maybe you can find some fresh lemons or limes. Even visiting several times a year there is always something new to discover on the island of Sint Maarten - St.Martin. This is truly a tourist paradise with an endless variety of activities and so many beautiful beaches it is impossible to 'do it all' in one trip.
