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.'

"HAPPY" Villa Corinne

  • 5 of 5

Not sure where to begin singing the praises of Villa Corinne. My husband and I had the pleasure of spending two wonderful, memorable weeks at Villa Corinne. The villa is just as pictured if not more. Everything you could possibly want or need is there for you. Corinne takes great pride in her property and it shows. The location is unbelievable - restaurants in walking distance, small grocery store right across the street and a wonderful staff at your service.

Victoria took great care of us; we looked forward to seeing her every day and sharing a laugh with her. She keeps the villa absolutely spotless; always making sure to never interrupt your privacy.

We took advantage of the ShopNDrop online grocery service and were so happy we did - they did a wonderful job with grocery shopping and delivering every single item as ordered.

If you are considering this villa - you will NOT be disappointed. We have rented many villas throughout the Caribbean using VRBO and this is by far at the top of our list. The location, the view, clean beautiful pool, kitchen with every amenity you could ever need, wonderful comfy beds and my favorite - the outdoor shower!! This villa is truly everything you dream of in a vacation spot.

We rented a car for the entire time of our stay; want to add that the garage that accompanies the Villa is a great addition. We explored the French side and enjoyed Grand Case in the evening for dinner. One of our favorite spots for dinner was Le Tastevin' - amazing food and staff.

The Dutch side (Phillipsburg) is great fun during the day , the boardwalk is very lively when cruise ships are in. Had a great time "people watching" and enjoying the beautiful scenery. Then there were several days where we just relaxed and enjoyed the deck, pool and beach at Villa Corinne - Incredible!! There is a great beach bar - Mr. Busby's - just steps from the villa and they will bring frozen drinks, sandwiches, salads etc. right to you. Who could ask for more ,,,

The island of St. Martin is appropriately called "The Happy Island" and Villa Corinne is our "Happy Villa"

Thank you so much Corinne for the opportunity to spend our vacation in your beautiful villa and for being so wonderful to work with thru the booking process. We are currently checking our calendar and planning a return visit real soon.

Always a Unique Experience - Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Villa Corinne for years and each time it just gets better! Love everything about it, from the beautiful decor, fully stocked bar, gourmet kitchen, ( love to cook and every appliance you can imagine is there) as well as the abundance of everything you need (towels, toiletries, night lights, cooler basket, suntan lotion, etc) for the most comfortable perfect vacation we've ever had.

The ocean view greeted us in the morning as we had coffee. A quick swim in the pool and our day began. My husband enjoyed snorkeling and I loved reading my book in the afternoon and enjoying the peace.

The fact that you can walk to three great restaurants (love Big Fish) in the evening just made it so convenient. We also enjoyed a boat trip from the marina next door. Captain Alan provides great excursions, whether to swim with the turtles or snorkel on the other side of the island.

We will return again and again.

Stop your search - this place is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this property. They have thought of every detail. We were there on a family vacation and we found the condo to be spacious and very well appointed and so clean and fresh! The condo is absolutely true to the photos. We truly could not have been happier with the property and Corinne. She is a magnificent host. The condo has a washer/dryer, tons of towels and linens. There is even an inventory of snorkel gear, office supplies, Wi-Fi, a concierge and daily cleaning service.

Location: Right on the border between the French & the Dutch side. Convenient to explore the island from, if you can force yourself to leave. It sits right on the beach with access to the beach directly from the condo. There are restaurants, a small grocery/wine store, shops and some boat excursions (I recommend Captain Alan's!) in walking distance.

Beach: Beautiful smooth sand, the water is gorgeous, clean and clear shades of blue and green. There are beach chairs and umbrellas. The restaurant down the beach will also come by and take orders for drinks.

Pool Area: So lovely to have the pool, good for laps as well as just hanging out. The inset cabana is also a treat. There is a lot of furniture, chairs, tables, ottomans, lounge chairs, and an outdoor dining table with umbrella. Everything is in excellent condition. There is a grill which we made lots of great use of. A great detail is the water basin for cleaning off your feet when returning from the beach!

Kitchen: The kitchen is incredibly well stocked. Every kitchen gadget and appliance you can think of, coffee makers, waffle maker, blenders and more. There are tons of dishes and glasses, including an entire second plastic set for using poolside. There is a nice stock of condiments left from previous tenants for the next. I highly recommend the Shop N Drop grocery service. You can order groceries online in advance and have them delivered to the condo prior to your arrival.

Living/Dining: A great open space, lots of comfy seating and doors out to the pool. TV, DVDs, Dish, desk, board games, Bose, and a bar that like the kitchen has a pay it forward unspoken system.

Bedrooms: Each bedroom is tastefully and thoughtfully decorated with a full bath. The "master" has an outdoor shower attached to the indoor shower. Two of he bedrooms are beach side with direct pool access. It was great to have each bedroom individually temperature controlled as we all have such different preferences.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Look no further this villa is perfect! We walked in and were blown away with the view. The villa is loaded with everything you could possibly need and is so tastefully done. We did have a problem with an AC unit that was identified before we arrived and was being repaired as we arrived. A little warm the first night in one of the masters but parts arrived the following day and were installed. Once repaired worked perfectly.

We had a beautiful basket of treats when we arrived and the fridge was stocked with our initial favorites thanks to Corinne.. so straight to the deck with a drink in hand we went! Plenty of comfortable deck chairs & loungers for all. PERFECT!

All the bedrooms & baths are wonderful, impeccably outfitted and the beds were very comfortable. Plenty of beach towels too.

She has thought of everything possible to make your stay perfect. We will be back for sure and are planning to stay longer because it is really hard to leave.

Things we learned...this place is a slice of heaven- we went to other beaches and found ourselves asking why did we leave home-base upon our return. Loved restaurants in Grand Case, but found that BIG FISH on property was one of the best meals we had on the island. Sad we waited until last night to try because again we would have probably gone there multiple times. The chicken shack on property is awesome and fresh croissants in the morning from the convenience store were my daughters favorite.

Get a car and explore. Loved the grocery stores on the French Side near Grand Case. We heard there is a new market near Marigot but we never made it. Wine selections on French Side are amazing and cheap. Great butcher on French side in route to Grand Case.

Restaurants - Big Fish - a must; La Villa - tasty with really great service; Spiga- good with great service; Le Shambala just go for drinks & view food not great; Rosie's for Ribs & Chicken a must, better than Lolo's and but we think there are some street vendors that would put everyone to shame. Going to try that next trip. Pizza from the truck in Marigot is amazing!

Corinne thank you so much for creating such a wonderful place that allowed our family to have a perfect vacation in St. Martin. We can't wait to come back!
