'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!!

A Beautiful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at VRBO properties for many years. The Starfish rates as one of the best with us, not only because of the gorgeous views, the tasteful furnishings, and top of the line appointments, but also from start to finish, we received first rate service from the owners of the villa ,the car service , the ReMax crew , and our delightful cleaning ladies. Linens were changed daily, everything was nicely maintained.

We are a group who enjoys eating out, relaxing and playing dominos. Everything we needed was within walking distance, yet Our house seemed private and secluded.

Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Wow!! Starfish Villa has it all... View, private pool, upscale furnishings and the beach !

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the villa. Everything looks just like the pictures and we were not disappointed! We spent so much time outdoors and enjoyed the pool, comfortable seating and having music play on outdoor speakers. All the restaurants were great... Mr Busby' for breakfast, Canoa and Big Fish for dinner. Service was friendly, professional from concierge to pool man. We would highly recommend staying at Starfish villa!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We spent a lot of time trying to optimize the patio area to truly make it an extension of the villa with deep seating chairs, lounges and the sound system. The outdoor speakers can only be beat by the sound of the waves on the beach! Please come back and visit us soon.

GREAT VILLA

  • 5 of 5

John and Anna are so accommodating! The greeter at the airport was punctual, our car was waiting in our parking slip as promised and the check in process consists of 2 minutes.The staff showed us around the villa and we were off to our vacation without any stress or glitches!

Starfish villa is an oasis that is clean and well maintained. The cleaning staff accommodated us on our schedule. The house has all the necessary amenities and more. We felt very safe and comfortable that Coral Beach security surveillanced the villas at night.

The view of the ocean is breathtaking. We wanted to go tour the island but the warmth of the house and serenity of the location made it impossible.

John and Anna thanks so much for sharing your exquisite hone with us!

Cheers

Magnificent villa with stunning beachfront outdoor living space!

  • 5 of 5

Starfish Villa is a class act with it's beautiful décor and furnishings along with the amenities of Coral Beach Club. Starfish exceeded our expectations in every aspect including cleanliness, modern conveniences which were all in good working order and easy to use. The large deck/patio overlooking the gorgeous blue ocean was breathtaking, relaxing, with plenty of space for everyone! The winds off the ocean kept the temperature comfortable with the added bonus of no bugs (no spray and no bites all week). John and Anne were helpful and straightforward regarding the villa and surroundings, although humble regarding the quality of their unit. It truly is superb and fantastic with all the comforts of home (maybe more)!

Coral Beach Club is a self contained complex with several wonderful restaurants, a market, shopping, and even onboarding for catamaran private excursions. The complex is meticulously maintained, the property manager and caretakers are outstanding and happy to assist with any requests. This was our first stay on Dawn beach which did not disappoint in terms of location and the beach itself. Venture out to Pinel Island and dine at the wonderful restaurants in Grand Case (Spiga a favorite)!

Guaranteed warm, relaxing, and perfect accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

Everything is exactly as described and better! We love to travel with our young kids and this was perfect. The beach was very well groomed with no seaweed as opposed to other beaches we've visited. Kids had a blast going from pool to beach within seconds! Loved the constant ocean breeze on the 80 degree days. The entire property is well maintained along with friendly staff and security. I would consider us very particular travelers when it comes to great accommodations and this was a 10 out of 10! I also think it's important to note that there were ZERO bugs and mosquito's. This can be an unfriendly surprise. We will be back! Thanks so much for a great trip and making it so easy. I could go on and on...All restaurants were amazing too.

The grounds crew strive to keep the beach in immaculate condition and the warm ocean breeze helps keep all bugs at bay. We too are particular when it comes to accommodations which is why we have put so much care into the pristine condition of Starfish. We hope you come visit us again!
