About Corinne Margulies

My husband and I have been going to St Martin for 25 years and rented many villas in Dawn Beach. When we saw the beachfront villas at Coral Beach being built, we looked at each other and said

'this is the one!' We have homes in New York City, Naples, Fl, and the villa. My husband recently retired. What that means is we now can travel between our places and enjoy each one anew.

Corinne Margulies purchased this villa in 2005

Why Corinne Margulies chose St Maarten / Saint Martin

Villa Corinne is special in so many ways. It's beautifully built and I designed and decorated it as 'my home,' so there is nothing missing when we stay there. The terrace leads to the pool and then steps to the beach. How perfect is that! I love that I can share it with guests and my reward is when I receive reviews from people who had the best vacation of their life and return again and again. It's just a little piece of paradise in the Caribbean.

What makes this villa unique

In addition to all the amenities including airport pick up, daily maid and concierge service, 24-hour private gym, garage and food delivered to the villa, I provide snorkeling equipment, pool floats, toys for children as well as crib, pack and play and booster seat. So if you are on a romantic vacation, the bar is complete and the gazebo awaits. If you have children, you don't have to bring all that gear because I provide it for you free of charge. My goal is to treat you as a guest in 'my home.'

Beautiful Villa, Relaxing Escape

  • 5 of 5

Villa Corinne is truly a 5-star villa -- beautifully furnished and maintained, well-appointed and well-stocked. For families, couples, or small groups seeking privacy and an escape from the hustle-and-bustle of other resorts on the island, you can't do better. Though it's quiet and private, a mere 2 minutes on foot (either on the beach or to either side of the driveway) is all it takes to find a variety of good restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Sunrises (and moonrises) to the east are glorious, and the beach is lovely. Just offshore are reefs bustling with colorful marine life, great for snorkeling. The owners of Villa Corinne have not crimped on anything -- a well-stocked bar, every appliance you need in the kitchen, towels, robes, slippers, games, snorkeling gear, beach bags, cable TV in every room, and a generous medicine cabinet should you need anything. The concierge, maids and groundskeepers were friendly and attentive to our every need. We will return to Villa Corinne!

Top shelf!

  • 5 of 5

Let me begin by stating that all properties such as this are only as good as the oversight and attention of the owner. Not sure that anyone else looks after their property as well as Corinne. Using her first name comes easily to me, because over time, this business transaction felt like we were simply staying at the home of a close relative - and one that cared deeply that our stay would be perfect in all ways. Everything about the property was as described or better, including amenities, location, cleaning and pool service. We simply loved the fact that very good restaurants were but a short walk away. When we mentioned to Theresa, the owner of "Big Fish", that we were staying at Villa Corinne, she informed our server that our first round of drinks were on the house. We also enjoyed Canoa's, another very good restaurant within walking distance. Other reviewers suggest renting a car. We did not. When we wanted to go elsewhere on the island, we simply asked the concierge to order us a cab. Not cheap, but very convenient and hassle-free. Victoria dutifully cleaned the villa every day, washing the towels, making the beds, etc. Others have spoken of the seaweed - yes, it was there, but NOT a show stopper. Every day we would spend a few hours at our pool, then relax on the beach on the provided chairs, an afternoon drink was steps away from Mr. Busby's or our own bar. Unlike others, we have found that if you treat the employees with respect, they will, in turn, endeavor to make your stay as nice as they can. Such was the case with Victoria, who cleaned the premises, our concierge, and even the pool man. The owner, Corinne, kept in touch almost daily via email, even to the point of offering the use of her own clothes (in the Owner's Closet) to one of our group who had lost their luggage.

The cost for our 12 day stay was very reasonable. Our travel group has stayed in villas and houses around the globe, and we consider this home a great value for the money, especially when you consider the high end amenities (including EVERY Cuisinart appliance ever made!), free transportation from the airport, food credit, pool, and proximity to the beach and fine restaurants.

All in all, we sincerely enjoyed our stay at Villa Corinne and plan to visit again in the near future.

Outstanding Villa, Perfect Location & Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 total people (including four adults and two children 10 & 13) visit this residence over Spring Break. It truly exceeded our expectations on almost every category...and you could hear that in our children's voice from the time we checked-in as they screamed loudly when they first walked in the door and saw how awesome the villa was and views were...all the way through to check-out.

Beyond the amazing location with a private pool and beach right in front of you, Corinne outfitted the villa inside with all the right amenities, including extremely comfortable beds and Egyptian cotton sheets, full kitchen, great TV's, etc. The outside lounge chairs also were so comfortable that it was hard to choose whether to hit the beach or simply hang out in the pool area and admire the beach views.

We also liked the location, which had great restaurants, a ferry around the corner that takes you to St Barth's (45 mns) for a day trip, and an awesome Caribbean outdoor bar (servicing lunch and dinner) a short walk down the beach.

Finally, the owner was so very pleasant to deal with. There is always a slight risk with any rental property getting what you expect (sight unseen), but the extra attention she provides making certain you are prepared to come there and have a blast (and feel knowledgeable about options and amenities) was exceptional. Thank you Corrine!

Owner's Response: I am always gratified when I receive such a nice review because I truly want my guests to have a great vacation in my home. Delighted that you appreciated all the amenities and comfort provided. When I decorated it was to be "my home." It wasn't done as a rental. We don't get there as often as we'd like, so I decided to rent and let others enjoy what we love. . As you say, the location is perfect with the beach, restaurants, marina at your doorstep. Thank you again for your review and I hope to host you again soon. Corinne

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Villa Corinne and wont be our last!!! My husband and I took my mother who is 75 and our 2 teenagers for a week over New Years. We had the most fantastic stay with all the comforts of our own home and more. The beautiful beach views, state of the art kitchen, most comfortable beds ever, and wonderful restaurants within walking distance, made it hard to leave and explore other parts of the island!! We enjoyed having drinks on the deck, watching the sunsets and using the grill in the evenings. The staff at Coral Beach club was extremely helpful to make or stay top notch ( making recommendations, reservations and answering any questions we had). We love this place and can't wait to return again!!!

It confirms that we succeeded in giving our guests what we ourselves enjoy about the villa - a beautiful, comfortable, restful vacation to build great family memories. Our little piece of paradise there on Dawn Beach with the great resturants, marina, beach and amenities make it hard to want to go anywhere else, thats for sure. You were wonderful guests and we hope you return soon. Alll the best, Corinne & Richard Margulies

Absolutely WONDERFUL AND PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

I am very happy to write this review regarding our family vacation that we took over the Thanksgiving Holiday Week (November 2015). Our family resides in Iowa, and we LOVE the Caribbean! (A lot!) St. Martin is our 5th Caribbean Island to visit. Nine months prior to our vacation taking place, I was on the VRBO.com website looking at options of homes to rent, and the picture of Corinne’s Three Bedroom Beachfront Villa on the VRBO website just really caught my eye. I immediately contacted the owners, Corinne and Richard Margulies, and inquired on whether their rental property would be available the week of Thanksgiving. Corinne replied to me immediately, using her personal email account to contact me. I knew right away that Corinne was a very kind person; and was so energetic about the Island of St. Martin, and acted very excited that I showed interest in renting her and her husband’s Beachfront Villa. After my husband and I reviewed all of the details, and looked at the beautiful photos on Corinne’s Caribbean Luxury Homes website, we did lock in our reservation within about five days of my first contact with Corinne. We knew this would be perfect for our family! As a perk to Corinne’s guests, Corinne and her husband kindly put an attractive sum of money towards the purchase of food and beverages for their home. There is a really neat Shop-N-Drop Grocery store in St. Martin, where a couple of gals own this business where those who are vacationing in St. Martin, they offer a service where they will come to the home that you are renting, and they will deliver food and beverages to your fridge and cupboards. It is the neatest thing, ever! You go on their website and you order what groceries and beverages you would like, and the day before you fly into St. Martin, they deliver the goods to the home you are renting! Corinne is so sincere and wants your first impression and your first evening to be perfect, and this is a “perk” that she provides to her guests. She wants you to enter her front door of her home; grab a beverage from the fridge that Shop-N-Drop delivered to the home, and jump right into her pool and start your vacation off RIGHT!! So basically Corinne and Richard paid for our food and beverages to get us through the first two or three days. Not every “renter” would do such. When the concierge did unlock the front door to Corinne and Richard’s home, our mouths just about dropped to the floor! Instantly IN LOVE!!!

Family Vacation at Villa Corinne

  • 5 of 5

It is my pleasure to write a review for one of the most wonderful vacation places I have stayed at.

I have always wanted to take my entire family away on a wonderful vacation. With busy schedules, it took over a year of planning. I rented Villa Corinne hoping that it would be at least half as beautiful as the photos made it seem. I wasn't disappointed.

From the moment I spoke with Corinne on the phone, and then subsequent emails with Josette, the concierge, my trip was as easy and seamless as could be. The condominium is impeccably decorated, equipped with every appliance you could ask for and is ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC.

The suites are stunning and overlook an amazing pool and ocean.

We had the most wonderful vacation and it was all due to the absolutely wonderful condo and amazing help from Corinne and Josette.

Can't say enough...definitely recommend renting there for a vacation of a lifetime. I plan to return!!!

Owner's Response: One of my greatest pleasures is hearing from my guests whose expectations were met and hopefully exceeded. It's particularly gratifying to me when it is a family vacation because this is where memories are made and I love providing the home where that occurs. You were wonderful guests and I'm delighted you are planning to return. Corinne
