Why Frank Leone chose Upper Prince's Quarter
The views from the deck of Villa Leone are something that words and photos alone can not adequately capture.

We had stayed at Frank's villa many years ago and with the hurricane we knew it would not be the same.The main issues we had were that the stove gas supply had not been turned on, but wasn't a big issue as we always eat out.
The hurricane doors were still screwed up tight upstairs so windows couldn't be open. The A/C in the upstairs quit on the 3rd day but will say Frank acted fast to having it repaired.
Frank was fair in dealing with the rental and the repairs as stated.
I would reccommend his villa
relaxing stay in St Maarten
Our stay at Villa Leone was relaxing and enjoyable. The hurricane has indeed damaged much of the accommodation on the island and we appreciate the effort that Frank has made to make the villa habitable while many of the other villa in the resort remain damaged. The beds were comfortable and the AC worked beautifully. The view is spectacular with strong winds daily on the oceanfront deck and the hot tub was used daily. Frank was attentive and emailed us several times to make sure all was in working order and that we were happy. Guana Bay is an easy drive to Phillipsburg 10 min, oyster pond 10 min, Orient Beach 20 min,and Simpsons Bay 20 min depending on traffic. We found nice restaurants for dinners and enjoyed breakfast on the deck with lounge chairs for reading in the sun. the beach had tremendous waves for body surfing and a safe sandy bottom. We had 5 "clean" days and then the prevailing winds deposited weeds to makes swimming less desirable. No problem because there are many beaches available only a short drive away. This villa is great for a quiet "get away from it all" vacation with the option to visit all that St Maarten has to offer with just a short drive. A rental car is a must. We would rent this villa again
The waves and the view
We stayed at Villa Leone for 8 days. We loved the view of the ocean and the sound of the crashing waves. While there were still signs of construction, it was by far the nicest/most recovered villa in the immediate area. Frank’s notes/suggestions on the things to do, items to eat, and places to visit was extremely helpful. Thanks again!
Thank you for your review and for staying and helping us rebuild by choosing to stay at Villa Leone.
We are continuing to make Villa Leone better, stronger and more comfortable for our guests. It never gets old to hear that our guests enjoyed themselves. We hope to see you soon back at Villa Leone Sint Maarten.
Great location right on the ocean with beautiful views of St. Barts and the regatta sailboats.
The villa was well equipped for our stay for a week. The community pool which we enjoyed daily was a few short steps from our door. We did not get to use the hot tub or charcoal BBQ (not enough time), but did spend countless hours on the balcony patio enjoying the Guana Bay vistas with a rum punch.
Frank was very open about the hurricane damage and repairs in progress to Villa Leone. We appreciated his attempt to get the shutters open on the upper bedroom.
St. Maarten is a beautiful island with welcoming people.
Thank you for taking your valuable time to review Villa Leone Sint Maarten! We appreciate your business and hope to see you back soon.
Frank was very responsive
I would return in a heart beat.
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Leone Sint Maarten.
Thank you for returning to Sint Maarten and helping support the people and businesses that need all the patrons and tourists to help them recover from the Storm.
It was a pleasure to be your host.
We hope to see you back soon.
Experience the Ocean
The ocean was so close that it was as much an experience as a view from the second level deck. We enjoyed watching the waves come in and the sound of them crashing on the shore. On clear days we could see St. Barth on the horizon.
The villa was bright with light and cozy. We spent more time there during our three-week stay than expected. It's in a very private part of the island. We saw very few other people. The beach was disappointing because it had not been cleared of mounds of seaweed. Neighbors told us the ocean scours it clean at times. We used it for metal detecting. The water was a beautiful shade of turquoise in the right light. However, the beaches in the touristed areas were pristine and only a short drive away. The pool was well-maintained and right next to the villa.
We had a few minor problems with conditions in the villa, which we're confident Frank will fix.. More serious to us, the floor of the upstairs bedroom was so slanted that we did not feel comfortable using it. Others might find it no problem. Clearly, the hurricane caused major damage to most of the surrounding villas, with debris scattered around, but this one has been nicely repaired. Repairs to the others are moving along. We liked the pink color. It fit right in with the colorful homes on the island.
We would have appreciated the weekly cleaning.
Frank always responded promptly to our questions and concerns.
There was no cable for internet or TV during our stay, although some businesses seem to have it. We relied on our phones. Make sure you have enough data through your plan and that the cost of adding international coverage is reasonable. An alternative is to buy a cheap phone there and buy data as needed.
We doubt there are many villas on the island just feet way from the ocean, especially at such an affordable rate. We highly recommend it.
Thank you for your time reviewing your stay. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Villa Leone. Of course we have a long way to go in Sint Maarten to fully recover from Irma.
The tv and internet do work in some areas but many of us are still without both with no certainty of it being re established in the near future.
The 2nd floor had settled years ago and poses no threat to safe occupancy. I agree to some it can be a little concerning.
We are continuing to recover and thank you for your support for Villa Leone and Sint Maarten. Thank you also for kindness,, understanding and consideration.
Thank you for staying at Villa Leone. We hope to see you back soon.
Villa Leone is located in the tranquil setting of Guana Bay; a pristine beach all by itself but yet only 5 minutes drive to the capital city Phillipsburg, where the cruise ships dock.
Golf: There is a beautiful golf course in Mullet Bay that is right next to the ocean!
