After we stepped off the cruise ship and boarded a taxi to spend the day at Dawn Beach, we knew we were in for something special. After we stuck our toes in the sand, we knew this was where we would want to be. From that moment on, we have worked to create a truly captivating vacation home that literally transports you to an exotic island paradise. Dawn Beach in St. Maarten is something that needs to be seen and experienced to be fully realized. This was an opportunity in a lifetime that has yet to disappoint and we would hope that you feel the same way on your vacation in our home!!

A "Memorable" Trip and Destination
We just got back home from a week in St Maarten.
Our week was "memorable" to say the least! I will keep my comments to where we stayed and our impression of The Starfish Villa on Dawn Beach/Coral Beach Club. I pretty much always contact the owner directly to discuss their property and what they would recommend. I had the opportunity to call and speak directly with Anna (with John assisting) and she told us not only about her Villa, its' amenities, and condition-as we had some concerns about given the relatively recent Hurricane history on the Island. The Villa was exactly as she had described-was immaculate, everything new, all in working order (small problem with the A/C in the Master Bedroom for the first night - but fixed by the staff in short order). The Villa has some very nice features - including a blue tooth sound system both inside and outside to allow you to play your music anywhere you like. It has a very large outdoor patio, personal fresh water pool with a sunken covered sitting area to enjoy the outside in every way. The beach is simply a few - and I mean FEW steps away, great swimming and very clean, and if snorkelling is your thing, the reef starts about 100 feet out and we saw as many fish there as we did on a boat/snorkelling trip we took. (Around Anguilla with Captain Als-which was a great day and we saw so many different things. Our driver was exceptional-forgot his name sorry - did a great job of doing the things we wanted to do and also took us to a lunch spot on Anguilla that was on the beach and had great food. We could have eaten a shore lunch but chose to go this route.) The kitchen is well equipped, there is a new propane BBQ and substantial eating space both inside and out. The large living room area is very comfortable with large TV. The other bedrooms are large and have TV's as well. We are a family group-six adults-and this place was exactly what we were told it would be and fit our needs and wants to the letter. I would highly recommend this Villa as a destination in St Maarten-in fact we did a few trips around the island, and noted when we got back to the Villa that it was as nice a place and location as we had seen. The staff were great- and appreciated- and made us quite comfortable. The weather was as expected-FANTASTIC! Due to the Covid crisis the restaurants were closed-but the Big Fish (just a very short walk) made us a great meal to take out! Consider this place for your St. Maarten vacation!!
Carl thank you for spending the time to write a review for us! Exploring our nearby islands is a delight and being able to take a charter right down the beach is a pleasure! It is also great to be able to jump right into our gorgeous aqua water right outside your door and snorkel with our varied marine animals and fish! We hope to welcome you and your family back soon!
The first week of March was a return visit for six of us who first visited the property in February 2017, prior to hurricane Irma..We had enjoyed the property immensely at that time, and found it to be completely restored now, with no visible signs of damage whatsoever. It’s difficult to imagine a more beautiful upscale home on a more idyllic setting, with a view of Saint Barth’s when looking out across the water from the patio and lap pool. The house is enormous, with plenty of room and modern amenities for three couples. Daily maid service was efficient and very courteous. The kitchen is fully equipped so we were able to enjoy a leisurely breakfast each morning with provisions that we obtained from the massive modern new Carrefour supermarket, where they have everything you could want and more. There is also a bodega at the resort near the house where we were able to obtain fresh baguettes each morning to have for breakfast. There are two restaurants at the end of the beach - Infinity Restaurant in the resort hotel which was quite good, and Big Fish which was refurbished and even better than it was before. We had rented a minivan for the six of us, and it was quick and easy to find several wonderful restaurants in other areas of the small island.
We look forward to returning to this beautiful and tranquil space.
Thank you very much Carl for taking the time to review our villa! I am sure future guests will find your insights valuable and be assured that the island is the paradise it always was. It was pleasure hosting you and your friends again we and look forward to sharing our home with you all again soon!
Great family vacation!
We (6 adults) spent 10 fabulous nights (2/23/20-3/4/20) at Starfish. The villa is just as beautiful as the photos and then some. The view of turquoise water and the pool will keep you relaxed all day. The villa is luxuriously huge-- plenty of space inside and out for all of us to gather and sit comfortably. Repeatedly, I had the best night’s sleep on their comfy mattress and the bathrooms/showers are better than most upscale hotels.
The best part of this villa is the convenience of swimming in the ocean or your own private pool. The ocean was calm with small waves great for swimming or just floating with a great view of sail boats and St Barths. Our group was all adults but other villas had children and it was fun watching the kids play on the soft sandy beach and ride in the little waves on their boogie boards.
The villa is well appointed if you like to cook which I did for breakfast and a few dinners. The other nights, we liked the convenience of walking to the restaurants in the complex and we especially liked the French restaurant, BZH, which was a 5-minute drive. There is also a French grocery/restaurant, Oasis, close by that we frequented often for French baguettes, yummy pastries, the French version of pizza, produce & wine.
It was nice being able to use the amenities of the nearby hotel. My brother-in-law used their gym daily and we frequented their restaurant, Infinity, a few times. Monday night is the buffet and the bbq ribs and jerk chicken was a hit with the men so we went again the following Monday. The other days of the week they have an ala carte menu for dinner and my sister loved their pasta dish. We didn’t partake in Karaoke at the bar but very amusing to watch and listen.
The owners, Anna & John, are very accommodating to any requests and quick to respond. They even sent me a text during our stay to make sure we were enjoying our vacation.
Renting a villa is so much better than staying in a hotel and this one is exceptional!
Reading this makes all the long days of renovating the villa fade away! The only thing I would like to add is our thanks for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. We look forward to hosting you and your family again soon!
The Starfish villa was immaculate with beautiful decor and high end appliances. From initial booking to arrival the owners were responsive immediately with any questions. The transportation to pick us up was there and waiting for us at the airport. The pool and grounds were perfect. We chose this villa because it has a huge outdoor space and it did not disappoint. We had a great welcome basket upon arrival with fruit, snacks and wine. We used shop and drop to deliver basic necessities and they were there for us when we arrived. I would recommend renting a car because most of the restaurants are gone that used to be at Coral Beach Club. We ate at Big Fish one night and Infinity one night which are on property. For breakfast Bodega on the bay was excellent with fresh croissants, baguettes, and amazing apple turnovers. It is also a nice little store with alcohol and food. We love St. Maarten and the wonderfully resilient people who have persevered after hurricane Irma. Also need to mention the excellent housekeeping staff. Pandora and her staff took great care of us during our stay. Thank you for a restful and enjoyable week on a beautiful island.
Thank you so very much for your wonderful review! We love sharing our villa with appreciative guests such as yourself and are glad your vacation was both restful and enjoyable . St. Maarten is filled with many wonderful places to dine and new restaurants are opening all the time. I am glad you were able to explore all the new dining experiences the island has to offer. Your kind words mean a lot to us and we look forward to hosting you again soon.
