'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!!

We Loved Starfish Villa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for a week in this lovely villa. We have rented quite a few villas on many islands over the years and Starfish Villa was probably the nicest villa and best location for a beach lover. Steps from the ocean, a pool, everything very clean, looks as pictured, kitchen is great, beds comfortable, and a lovely beach. The grounds are manicured and well care for, lovely blooming bushes along the walkways. The staff was wonderful and helpful in booking day trips and dinner reservations. It was also nice to have restaurants within walking distance, we loved Big Fish and Canoa. The market was so handy we could walk over and grab fresh baguettes and croissants each morning. This market carried so many grocery items as well as a full selection of wine, beer, and liquor. We were even able to order cocktails and buckets of beers while on our patio, as the beach staff from Mr. Busby's Beach Bar would pop by while patrolling the beach and take drink orders from us. This was a fun service to have as an option, but the kitchen had a huge Viking refridgerator, ice maker, an array of glassware and a blender for frozen drinks. The Oyster Bay Beach Resort was up the beach and was nice for breakfast (we didn't get a chance for dinner)and we had fun at the casino at the Westin, other end of beach. Mama's pizza was a short drive and had delicious brick oven pizza in a very nice outdoorsy setting. Starfish Villa was by far located at the prettiest area of St. Martin (my opinion), the nearby homes & vacation homes were well maintained. I highly recommend this villa and the owners are a very nice couple. You don't really need to rent a car to stay here but taxis don't hang out here. A cab can certainly be arranged for with the office during business hours. As a family of 6 (21years and up) we preferred having a car, more freedom to explore island. We were picked up at the airport upon arrival and the rental car was waiting for us at the villa parking area. The paper work was brought to us for signatures, we never had to hang out at a car rental office. Quick note, the plunge pool is about 4' deep and beautifully situated on the patio. Little ones that don't swim would be tough and kept in some sort of floatation jacket. I will forever miss seeing the sunrises, at the foot of the master bed, each morning. Two emotions that probably best described how we felt while staying at Starfish Villa would be Spoiled Rotten and Grateful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to add such a thoughtful review.

Owner's Response: I wish we could take credit for the beautiful views but Mother Nature was at her best when she created Dawn Beach! I will say our staff does an outstanding job keeping the beach well groomed which is something you will not find anywhere else. Our staff treats all our guests as family which makes you feel right at home. Thank you for your glowing review and we hope to see you soon. Anna

We travel the world and have stayed in extraordinary accommodations. From the cleanliness, roominess, location, to the updated facility..The Starfish was perfect. Diana in the front office was nothing short of spectacular. Made everything as smooth and headache free as a vacation should truly be.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at villa starfish was perfect for our family. We had 2 small children and the villa exceeded all of our expectations. The amenities and the staff at the coral beach club were great. Being steps from the beach and your own pool was perfect for our 3 year old. We would highly recommend the villa to any families looking for a very low key and relaxing vacation.

We and the entire staff pride ourselves on providing a safe and secure vacation experience. Please visit us again soon, Anna

Beautiful Villa by the beach.. Everybody courteous and helpful.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was beautiful and perfect for 3 adult couples. Everyone had their own bathroom. The only problem was the lighting in the bathrooms were not good if you needed to shave or apply makeup..the beds and pillows were excellent. The restaurants in the area were great. Best food on the island was right here on Dawn Beach.

Stephanie the concierge was fabulous. We went to Mr. Busby's everyday for Happy Hour and visited with Grey and the staff. Very relaxing vacation! Definitely do it again!

Owner's Response: Relaxing is what vacations are all about! They call St. Maarten the "Friendly Island" as everyone tries to make you feel welcome. We have LED lights and large mirrors in all the bedrooms and bathrooms so I am sure you all looked fabulous for your nights out! We look forward to welcoming you again, Anna
