'It's the holy grail of villa rentals: A home smack on the beach, where your terrace is just a shell's throw from the sand and where the first thing you see when you sit up in bed in the morning is an unobstructed expanse of turquoise sea.'

About The Owner

I live every moment to the fullest, plan everything down to the smallest detail, and cherish all that I have before me. By noticing every painstaking detail and experiencing every comfort, you will understand that this is more than just your average villa. When you stay here at Starfish Villa, and gaze across the serene open ocean from your personal and private BEACHFRONT gazebo, it will sink in that this place is truly your home away from home!!

The Owner purchased this villa in 2007

Why The Owner chose St Maarten / Saint Martin

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!!

What makes this villa unique

We have taken our time to make sure that you will be transported to a lavish beachfront paradise the moment you step into the door. The only thing you will wish you had by the end of your stay.....was that you had more time to be pampered in pure bliss!!

Amazing Hosts, Perfect Beach, Perfect Villa, Perfect Area,

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at the Starfish Villa (April 8-15). I planned this vacation in August. We had never been to St. Maarten. After talking with Anna, I hoped that the vacation would be all she described - it turned out to be far more. This was an absolute dream come true vacation. Not one of us was disappointed in any way - and we had very high expectations.

First the villa itself is perfect. It is so well designed. The 3 bedrooms are really all master suites. They are spacious and the beds and linens are wonderful. The common area with kitchen, dining and living room is set up to give everyone enough space, but encourage togetherness. The flooring is travertine - why isn't this in every beach villa? It is beautiful, forgiving and not slick when wet. The air conditioning works well, the water tastes great, and it is just a beautiful home to be in.

Now the outside. How do you even put words to perfection? The back veranda and pool are spectacular.

But the beach - oh this beach. The sand is white powder sand. The water is exactly like the photos. The ocean floor is perfect sand - not a rock in sight. No need for water shoes at this beach. The water is simply perfect. Some days the water was flat as glass - other days there were enough waves to body surf.

I was really concerned as we were traveling with four teenagers. I wanted an area that had plenty to do - but not too much! The ocean was perfect and the kids went snorkeling, kayaking, body surfing, boogie boarding and just had a great time.

Down the beach just a few yards are several different restaurants. I was blown away by the quality of the food. All of these restaurants obviously know their money is in repeat business and they got ours. Mr. Busby's was our favorite, though Kanoa (sp??) was a close second. The kids loved the pizza. Most nights, the kids ate by themselves and my husband and I had a wonderful dinner. The kids found plenty to do. There is a small grocery store on site with very friendly folks working there.

Anna was exactly right. Plenty to do and when the kids wanted to jet ski, etc., we went to Orient Beach - just 15 minutes up the road - for the day.

Anna knows the area and I cannot thank her enough for her guidance. I talked to several owners before booking, but felt like she really cared and wanted to make sure it was the right place for our family. It was.

Owner's Response: I cannot thank you enough for taking the time and posting such a detailed review! We really do want to provide you and family with all the things that our family and friends enjoy at the villa. It is our pleasure to share with you the benefit of our years living on this gorgeous island. However, we must give Mother Nature the credit for our spectacular beach but the pristine sand is due to our dedicated staff that daily grooms the entire beach quietly at sunrise. I know the memories you and your family brought back will be cherished for many years to come. Please let us host you again! Regards, Anna

Stunning villa - picture perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a trip to Villa Starfish with two adults and four almost grown kids. There is nothing missing here. The villa has absolutely everything anyone could want or need from a fully stocked kitchen and spacious, comfortable living area to three huge master bedrooms. The largest bedroom has sliding glass doors to the amazing patio, pool, and beach. Waking up to the sound of the crashing waves was a great treat. The location is great - very centrally located on the island. The local restaurants were excellent (Big Fish, Canoa), Orient Beach and Loterie Farm were fantastic day trips, and Grand Case was another beautiful beach with many delicious restaurants. We had a wonderful vacation. The villa is very well maintained and all of the staff members are friendly and helpful. The villa owners were very nice and helpful as well. Highly recommend this property for a truly memorable vacation!!

This is paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough positive about our families' week stay at Starfish Villa. The home is just perfection. The kitchen is very well equipped, the bedrooms and baths are lovely and comfortable with great linens, the pool and ocean views are spectacular. There was a good bit of seaweed on the beach a couple of days but the staff worked hard to get it cleaned off the beach. While the seaweed was less than ideal, we felt like we we on the beach because the pool area is so comfortable and so close to the water. We enjoyed several of the nearby restaurants ...Big Fish was our favorite!! The staff at CBC is very friendly and helpful. Our AC went out and they had someone to repair within an hour (after 5 on a Friday)!! I can't recommend this beautiful home enough. It is paradise.

Starfish Villa is "Picture Perfect!"

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful! Pristine! From the moment we walked in we were speechless! This villa is perfect and every detail thought of from kitchen appliances, to fresh linens, to outdoor furniture/music. Having a private pool was amazing, perfect for our three teenagers! Every room in the home was spacious. Great size for our family of five: 3bed/3baths.

We planned this vacation to celebrate our oldest daughter's high school graduation. We have always vacationed in Destin, FL but wanted to try something different. St. Maarten and Starfish Villa was simply perfect! We spent every evening sitting in the pool gazebo, listening to music, and sharing quality family time.

Oceanfront and steps to the beach is this villa! The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Harry and Rob made sure we had chairs and umbrellas each morning. Loved the outdoor shower for washing off after the beach!

The restaurants were so close and convenient, just a few yards down the beach. We ate out each evening and really enjoyed each restaurant, but really liked the atmosphere at Beau Beau's. One night we had pizza at Mr. Busby's and it was definitely a hit with the kids. The night we ate at Kanoa's our kids took an absolutely breathtaking picture of the sunset, such a peaceful place to enjoy a meal.

John and Anna, we thank you for sharing your amazing villa and all the memories we were able to make during our stay in St. Maarten!

Perfect getaway for family of 4

  • 5 of 5

The Starfish Villa was perfect for our family of 4 including 2 teens. The owners are very communicative, and the property is managed on site. We had no problems checking in or out. There is daily cleaning service that takes care of the unit beautifully. The rooms are comfortable and the a/c is perfect. The view is as good as it looks in the pictures. This location is ideal for groups that don't want to spend every minute in the sun, but still want an ocean view. The pool and sunken gazebo were fantastic. Having a market and a chicken rotisserie take out shack down the beach was a huge bonus, as we wanted to enjoy the villa a couple of nights rather than go out. The only hiccup is the seaweed on dawn beach. They clean the beach really well, but it's not great for swimming. We still would rent this beautiful villa despite the seaweed, because there is very nice swimming up at Grand Case about 15 minutes away, and the comfort of this home is worth it!

Owner's Response: We will be staying at the villa next week and will certainly tell Victoria , who has been our housekeeper from the beginning , your kind words! It is certainly our pleasure to speak with our guests as this ensures a vacation that the entire family will enjoy! I am glad you were able to take advantage of the restaurants and take out places that are just down the beach. They are close but do not intrude on your privacy or the breathtaking views of St. Barth's and the ocean. Villa Starfish is our home also and we are happy you and your family had a very comfortable stay. We look forward to hosting you and your family again very soon, Anna

Beautiful Villa

  • 3 of 5

The villa is gorgeous and very well appointed. We particularly appreciated the surround sound and the wifi connection. We also really enjoyed the comfortable patio furniture and outdoor shower. There are several fantastic restaurants on-site. However, the beach was so covered in seaweed we could not use it. I know this is beyond control, but really not what I was expecting from the description and photos, and had I known I would have booked a different property as other beaches were not affected by the seaweed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful comments regarding our villa. Mother Nature seems to have just recently sent some sea weed to our gorgeous beach. Our management, as always , is on top of this situation and has brought in larger beach cleaning equipment to address the issue and we expect this will return the sand to its pristine state. Mother Nature's currents are fickle and the currents can bring sea weed to different beaches on different days. We are glad you enjoyed all the wonderful restaurants and other beaches on our beautiful island. Regards, Anna
