About the property

The Cottage in St Maarten, ideal for truly romantic, peaceful Caribbean vacation. The St Maarten Cottage at Oyster Pond Estates is part of the Estate Chateau Jeca, a fully gated property in secured gated community . The Cottage offers privacy and beauty. Styled after an old West Indian cottage every detail is included; lap board siding, and traditional wood shutters painted in Caribbean colors.

Don't be fooled by the old traditional style, the cottage contains a modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances; micro wave, wall oven and cook top. The entire cottage is air-conditioned. There is cable with 2 flat screen TVs, 2 stereos, Ipod docking station, wireless Internet. The bathroom is built into the hillside with exposed rock and includes large vanity, sink and self contained shower all from Travertine stone. Amenities include outdoor jacuzzi, sculptured pool bordered with stone and views of Oyster Pond, the Atlantic Ocean and Anguilla.

Three private terraces allow for plenty of relaxing time. Also, you can take time to meander in the lush gardens using one of the many stone paths, or maybe chat with Tina the African Grey. Annie,a pomeranian, that will greet you everyday.

Dawn beach is minutes away and about 20 minutes to Orient Beach (our nude beach) on the French side.

Robert-





The Cottage is an indoor/outdoor architectural masterpiece. Robert has done an amazing job creating this very unique environment and the view from the deck off of the bedroom is fabulous. The interior of the cottage is nicely appointed and very interesting. You are provided with a private entrance off of the road by way of an electronic and secure gate and can park your car just a few steps from the front porch.



Robert is very responsive to emails and was even kind enough to look into what happened to an old friend I had met in Grand Case some years ago. Sadly the news was not good.



The daily morning walk into Oyster Pond is a great way to start the day but be aware that the walk back can be a challenge! Our only disappointment was that Robert was stateside during the first part of our stay so we only had one opportunity to sit down and chat with him. This is a very nice place!

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We've been back home for a little over a week now and I'm still gushing over our stay! When planning, I looked at what seemed like hundreds of rentals and decided upon Robert's cottage based on other reviews. Best decision I made because this truly added to an already perfect vacation. It felt luxurious, but with a very modest rate! Arrival was a breeze. Robert emailed detailed directions and we had no problems finding the house (car rental is a must, in my opinion). He showed us around the cottage and explained how everything worked, and then provided us privacy for the remainder of our stay. I must admit, I was a bit unsure of staying on someone's property. I worried that it would feel intrusive. However, it wasn't that way at all! We felt completely comfortable at the pool and hot tub, grilling out, and hanging out around the property. Speaking of the property, the pictures do it no justice! A true tropical feel with lush plants and flowers all around, a nice view of the surrounding mountains and beach, and we even spotted an iguana in the trees! The cottage itself is clean, comfortable, and equipped with everything you would need. Robert even starts you off with some drinks in the fridge (soda, water, beer, wine) and mosquito repelling bracelets (though, if you're like me and particularly enticing to mosquitoes- you'll need spray). The location of the property is very convenient, close to restaurants, grocery stores, and beaches. In fact, the entire island itself was very manageable in June, so although we favored the beaches on the west side of the island, the drive wasn't bad. Most importantly, the property and surrounding area felt safe. With a guard at the main gate, gated property, and two dogs (not to mention Robert right next door), we felt at ease. Overall, we would very highly recommend a stay at Robert's cottage! We certainly hope to return one day!

Best place to stay in Sint Maarten!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot describe how beautiful Chateau Jecca was! My boyfriend and I stayed there for six days and enjoyed every minute of it! After touring the island and seeing the many resorts we felt we did not miss out at all. The private pool and the hot tub were the icing on the cake! The location of the cottage was perfect and close to the most prestine beaches we have ever seen.

Robert was a gracious host and stocked the cottage with all of the comforts of home. We couldn't have felt more welcomed during our stay and enjoyed being greeted by Robert's furry friends Bella and Angelo. If you are looking for a romantic getaway Chateau Jecca will not disappoint! We hope to come back and stay here soon!

Absolutely loved our stay. The cottage is fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved returning to the cottage in the evening and drinking a glass of wine while soaking in the view. Such a beautiful and quiet place to return to each night. Guests have private use of hot tub and pool. Robert is so accommodating- there to help if needed otherwise gives complete privacy. He has thought of everything to make the guests stay wonderful. Will return some day. LOVED IT!

Perfect Break from a long Winter

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been to the island four times in the last five years and really enjoyed our stay at Robert's cottage. He has thought of everything and it was just as advertised, clean, quiet and simply perfect. The view is wonderful from the top deck, beverages to start our stay and a comfortable bed. It was nice to have plenty of beach towels and even the chairs. Thanks Robert, we really enjoyed our stay. Kris & Ralph

Amazing Once Again

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough good about Chateau Jeca. This was our second time enjoying the cottage and we wouldn't do SXM any other way unless we came with a larger group. The views of Oyster Pond, the ocean and Anguilla are so welcome to wake up to. We brought a bag of our favorite coffee from home and enjoyed that on the deck every morning. The pool is refreshing and the hot tub very relaxing during the cool of night. The entire property is gorgeous and everything is set up for visitors to have maximum relaxation. Also, Bella and Angelo were very friendly and greeted us every morning while we had our coffee.

Thanks again, Robert, for sharing your beautiful property with us. We hope to return again soon and will never forget our time at Chateau Jeca.

AMAZING ANNIVERSARY TRIP

  • 5 of 5

We spent our honeymoon on St. Martin and had not been back so we were excited to find a great place for our 25th anniversary. We also had not ever used VRBO so that was a new experience for us. After arriving, getting car and driving to Chateau Jeca, we were a little nervous about what to expect.... then we arrived at the gate and entered heaven. Richard was there to meet us, along with the very friendly dogs, and proceeded to show us the cottage. As other reviews have mentioned, the pictures only hint at how awesome the entire property is. Everything was so perfect it was almost unbelievable. Then, the icing on the cake. Several of my wife's best friends had contacted Robert through VRBO and asked if he could provide something special for us. Robert went out of his way to get a nice card, fresh flowers and champagne, this on top of the beer and wine he normally provides. It was so unexpected. This trip was in one word, perfect. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing, romantic visit to St. Martin.
