Your kind patience is a gift to them. Thank you! *** OTHER NEWS: As of this date, To Villa Alabaster's best friends ~ a heavy, sad heart for Alabaster & community, and devastating damage throughout special St. Maarten. As the communication slowly is able to be sent, the reality to all has set-in and reports are still coming in, and will for quite some time, of extent, and restoration, when that is able to begin - structurally - for the buildings. Utilities are still sporadic. The Dutch Army has ships there, to aid. Some flights are coming to the airport for supplies, and local flights to carry folks to / or from nearby larger airports such as Puerto Rico. Otherwise the airport tower and system is still down as of this date, so it takes experienced pilots to get the nod to fly in / out. Check back for further updates, warm regards, Lisa & Villa Alabaster


UPDATE (Sept 8th) *** Hurricane Irma situation *** Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for the greatest people on this island *** Good news and Bad news: As more information comes in, here is the situation: Those of you who have visited, (as well from the photos), will see that along the back of all of the terraces is a deep sea wall.

Literally Oceanfront Villa Alabaster on Dawn Beach ~ 5 Stars ~ Owners' listing
average rating of 5.0 based on 18 reviews


  • 5 of 5

Perfect vacation spot for my wife and I and our youngest son. The unit is beautiful. We woke up each morning and jumped into the ocean. The kitchen is fully stocked and so is everything else about the unit. The living room is large with plenty of seating. Concierge service was very helpful and we did rent a car. If you are here more than a few days we think a car is necessary. However, there are a number of restaurants only a short walk from the villa. We have been to the island a number of times before but still like to visit Marigot and have dinners at one of the LoLo restaurants in Grand Case. We own homes that we rent through Homeaway/VRBO ourselves and could not have prepared the unit any better. A perfect, wonderful place and we expect to return. Hats off to the owners from guests that appreciated it.

Alabaster Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had the PRIVILEGE of staying at the CBC, Alabaster Villa in April 2016. The Villa is amazing and immaculate...modern and stylish with a perfect beach setting. We stayed there for 2 nights after leaving the Westin and could only wish we had more time there. The plunge pool was perfect for our 3 year old son, and being beachfront was a great treat. I have so much love for this property...Thank you Lisa for a wonderful memory!!

A Great Place to RELAX

  • 5 of 5

What a superb Villa! This is our first time using VRBO; very easy and great results! We

do want to take time to thank everyone! We have travelled to many island destinations over

the years and this one will be a highlight…at the top of the list! We'd not been to St. Maarten

in years and a friend recommended we go, so we checked out VRBO and found Villa

Alabaster. It is everything and more that the website photos illustrate! Lisa, the Owner,

was so pleasant and helpful, providing many very thoughtful and helpful suggestions; in fact, she coordinated all of our booking with Anju' and Victoria, eliminating any oversights! I think the operative word is “EASY!”

Josette, the concierge/hostess at Coral Beach Club, contacted us and arranged for their airport greeter to meet us at the airport, assist with the rental car and luggage and lead us to the Villa… NICE! We were 2 couples coming in on separate flights; Josette coordinated all the arrivals and departures, making them

smooth and simple! Arriving at the Villa we were warmly greeted, provided a detailed tour through the Villa and given the “lay of the island”!

Josette was readily available for any of our needs…reservations, directions, where to buy things, etc.; her office is a minute’s walk from the Villa (or dial "0" from the Villa)…our thanks to her for her thoughtful and most friendly guidance.

The Villa was immaculate and right on the beautiful beach. The ocean breeze, enjoyed from the terrace, was very refreshing, as was the pool and “in-pool” sitting area.

The staff is attentive, from the early morning pool maintenance to

Rho, the housekeeper, who quietly goes about making the beds and keeping things

sparkling clean.

This is a very private, quiet villa-community with bars and restaurants literally a 100 yard walk down the beach! What a great place to relax!

And, a short drive to Grande Case produced fabulous water front dining with unbelievable sunsets! We look forward to another trip Fall!

5-stars all the way!

Owner's Response: AWE!!! yeahhh! Just love to hear your sweet review, and adventures! Thanks a bunch for mentioning the family-staff !! They'll be right there this Fall to give a warm welcome back, we are indeed a little community ! Love to hear about Grande Case tucked away as it is, and a discovery what's on the beach side of those restaurants! We'll touch base before your next trip down - so much to do (or nothing at all works too, huh?) LOL 8-) Thanks again, Lisa en Rene'

My son and I wanted to find Heaven on earth for my birthday and we found it! He went snorkeling almost every day and found the MOST amazing fish right around the bend. He is a very strong swimmer (a requirement), but he told me about the clown fish, puffer fish, and scads of blue fish. We had a great time going to ALL of the local restaurants: Big Fish, Canoa, Mr. Busby's, and Beau Beau's. They are all amazing. My favorite is getting the pastries at 7AM from the Pier Grocery. All of these things are literally within a 2-5 minute walk. I LOVE this place!!! Of course the BEST part is that the beach is RIGHT there and you can soak in the most beautiful beach and beach sounds you have ever heard in all of your life. So GO and treat yourself!!!

Why stay anywhere else?

  • 5 of 5

This villa was absolutely amazing! My husband and I stayed for 2 weeks and loved every minute! Everything is so convenient and if you don't want to venture out you don't have to! The marina market is a short walk away, as well as 3 wonderful restaurants... all just around the corner from the villa. Everything in the villa was clean and the housekeeper and pool guy were very friendly. The rooms are very spacious and extremely comfortable! We have stayed in many villas all throughout the Caribbean, but this is by far one of the best! The owner was very helpful with recommendations and addressing any questions we had. We will return soon!

Owner's Response: So thrilled for you all ! It is so exciting for me too, since our Villa is such a "find" and lived up to your expectation... Thank you for visiting again, and keep on coming down! Warmest Regards, Lisa

A beautiful home and wonderful island!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back to NYC from an amazing week in St Maarten. The Villa was 5 star and a great choice for our family- 4 adults with kids 9, 8 and 6. With easy access to the beach and breakfast at Mr. Busby's we were very pleased. I suggest chartering a boat (right by the marina across the way) and going for a day trip to Pinel Island and Tintamarre. I also recommend going to Grand Case for dinner. We will definitely be back and highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Great recommendations ! Yes, indeed Mr. Busbys is so neat the way it is right there on the beach & relaxing. So glad you went to Pinel, and there is also a 'boat taxi' up at the top of Anse Marcel. Love it you all enjoyed the cuisine over in Grande Case n Marigot. Sint Maarten is known as the "Gourmet Capitol of the Carribean" for all the right reason. Just great food everywhere ! Well I hope you come back soon, with a beach-hug and warmest regards, Lisa ;-)
