Private and tranquil two story beachfront townhouse (end-unit) situated directly on the white sand beach and turquoise blue waters of Great Bay, in a quiet area of Phillipsburg, the Dutch capital of St. Maarten. Lovingly and tastefully renovated and redecorated by the owners in Fall 2011.
This is a small, intimate and friendly gated complex comprised of only 12 individual villas with on-site management, an infinity pool overlooking the beach, and surrounded by lush tropical gardens. There are several lounge areas for you to choose from every day, including right beside the pool, in the shady breeze way, or directly on the gorgeous beach.
Make yourself at home in this unit (Villa #1) which has a brand new fully-equipped kitchen, complete with dishwasher. On the second floor, there are 2 bedrooms, one oceanfront with a private terrace, and a newly renovated full-sized 'spa' bathroom with a large, luxurious glass block shower.
On the main floor is the spacious living room, kitchen, dining area and a powder room. The unit is fully air-conditioned for your comfort.
You have your own private lanai shaded by palm trees where you can enjoy meals and cocktails while watching the beautiful cruise ships come and go without experiencing the crowds (a favourite past-time of all visitors who visit our complex)!
Our on-site management team are our amazing ambassadors who will happily provide you with any assistance and information you may need to make your stay more enjoyable.
The complex is isolated from the hustle and bustle of Phillipsburg, but is located a mere 5 minute stroll away. So.....you can decide to spend a quiet day by the pool or on the beach or walk into Philipsburg and enjoy the myriad of shops, restaurants and casinos that it offers, or do a little of both! It is not necessary to rent a car in order to make the most of your vacation here as there are do many amenities and activities within close proximity. There is also a local bus service nearby that is an affordable and convenient way to get around. If you do choose to rent a car, navigating the 37 square miles of the island is a piece of cake. Including Great Bay Beach, there are 37 beaches on the island (1 beach for every square mile!) and they are all within a short driving distance.
Hopefully, you will discover that this is your 'home away from home', just as we did!
We are from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. We are newly retired and decided that we had to own a piece of what we consider to be the ultimate paradise! We are now proud new owners of one of the Villas on Great Bay and we are thrilled!
We spent 3 1/2 months in the Fall of 2011 totally renovating and redecorating our new 'home away from home'. We are EXTREMELY happy with the results of our hard work and we hope our guests love it as much as we do!
Our love affair with St. Maarten began when we went there on a cruise in 2007. When we saw how beautiful it is and found out how much it has to offer, we knew we had to go back! We stayed at the Villas on Great Bay in St. Maarten in 2008 and have been back every year since then. From day one, we have truly felt like it is our home away from home!
