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 againand 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.'

Villa Corrine is a perfect vacation spot! Our family loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful, well maintained, and the service was wonderful. Daily maid service, visible security, concierge service and the pool guy were all great! We loved the views from every room and the convience to the beach. The kitchen had everything you could possibly ever need but villa was also steps away from several restaurants and a small grocery. You don't even need to rent a car but I heavily encourage it for the week to see other beaches on the island. We loved exploring the island! We enjoyed staying at Villa Corrine and the overall experience was wonderful! We highly recommend it.

Great Vacation At Villa Corinne

  • 5 of 5

Corinne and Richard - Thank you very much for sharing your villa with us last week. It is such a beautiful home. The service and amenities were top notch. All the rooms are lovely and the pool is so nice. The area is great, we enjoyed all of the restaurants (Big Fish, Mr Busby's, Daniels, etc). We enjoyed the day trip to Anguilla as well. You were so great to deal with, we look forward to returning to St Maarten very soon. Thank you The Harris Family.

A dream location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a glorious week at Villa Corinne. We were with our 2 teenage grandsons, and their parents, who travelled from Australia, to spend time with us in St Maarten. We were met with a shuttle at the airport, and everything from then on, was as we had hoped for.

The staff could not do enough to help us, and any requests were handled promptly and to our satisfaction. The property is kept in immaculate condition, and the pool cleaned every day. The views are as per the pictures, and it was a "tough" decision deciding where to swim each day. The sunken gazebo was a perfect place for breakfast, enjoy a snack, or a enjoy a glass wine before dinner.

We enjoyed a day trip to St Bart's, which is just a 45 minute ferry ride across the water - another beautiful island to visit. We also spent a day at Pinel Beach which is a 15 minute drive and 5 minute ferry ride. Fresh seafood and cold beverages made for a very relaxing day.

Corinne was able to recommend many of the local restaurants, and we did our best to visit as many as we could - Big Fish, Mr Busby's Beach Bar, the charcoal chicken shack within the resort, Captain Oliver's, Ocean 82 in Grand Case.

A 20 minute drive to Quartier Orleans was in order each day, to get fresh pastries and croissants from the local patisserie. Highly recommended.

Corinne and Richard were wonderful in the lead-up, giving us plenty of ideas, and tips of things to do. They are excellent hosts.

This was our first trip to St Maarten, but it will definitely not be the last.

We highly recommend Villa Corinne to anyone thinking of a trip to St Maarten - it would be impossible to find a better place to stay or find better hosts.

AMAZING Family/Graduation Trip to St Martin

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in St Martin was nothing short of amazing. The condo is beautifully appointed and Corrine has definitely thought of everything!! The kitchen has every possible gadget and appliance including a Kuerig (so bring your coffee pods). I would definitely recommend using the grocery delivery service, it was really great to arrive to a fully stocked fridge and bar!! The pool was beautiful and relaxing and we took advantage of it every day for sure! There was a lot of seaweed in the ocean so we weren't able to swim there but that was ok because we got to enjoy some of the other beautiful beaches on the island. We went to Orient Beach for a day and that was really fun especially for the kids who were able to take advantage of the water trampoline, jet skiing etc. Probably the most fun thing we did was a private charter with Captain Alan to Anguilla. Our guide was amazingly knowledgeable, super fun and Anguilla is breathtakingly beautiful. We got to snorkel, swim with turtles, tube, take a mud bath and the kids even got to jump off a cliff! We also took a ferry to St Barts, that was amazing as well. We had a great meal at Big Fish and also enjoyed some of the other little restaurants right in Oyster Pond. The girls at the concierge desk were so patient and helpful and believe me we had lots of questions!! Corrine gave us lots of really great information before we went which was really helpful in our planning, she has definitely thought of everything (sorry I know I already said that but it's really true)!! Corrine has definitely made her mark on the island as well because EVERYONE knows her!! We are already trying to figure out how/when we can get back, hopefully sooner rather than later. Thank you Corrine for sharing your beautiful condo with us, it was definitely the trip of a lifetime!!

Can't be Beat!

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent travelers to St. Maarten, and this has been our favorite villa. The oceanfront location and private pool make this a clear winner. The Location is perfect: you have an exceptional private villa, with a variety of amazing restaurants in walking distance, and a world of restaurant and shopping options are within a 5 minute drive. The beach is clean and well maintained. The villa itself is spotless and everything is in perfect working order. We used the grocery delivery service, and arrived to a stocked pantry, fridge, bar. Excellent communication from owners and management staff. We give this our highest possible rating.

"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.
