We are a super busy family with 3 growing boys looking for the perfect place for our vacation and when we first saw this property in 2010 we knew it was the perfect vacation home for all of us with the large open spaces and oversized terraces and close proximity to the beach. It has something to offer each one of us.
The Owner purchased this villa in 2010
We have always loved the Oyster Pond and Dawn Beach area of St. Maarten. The very secluded and quiet “Dawn Beach” is the perfect getaway yet close enough in proximity to all the excitement you want and it has one of the nicest beaches with great snorkeling. St. Maarten is one of the few Caribbean islands left where you can still get a beer right on the beach for a mere few dollars, or have lunch, a burger, fries and a cold beer for under 10 USD.
The villa has all the comforts of a private luxurious vacation home with high standards of upkeep and attention to detail, making it an ideal instant vacation. Spend your days lounging by the pool or go for a stroll to the beach. At night you can dine at five star restaurants on the Dutch or French side in St. Martin, both a very short drive away. If you decide to stay in, we can have one of our private chefs whip up a delicious personalized meal for you or pick up a fresh lobster at Captain Olivers and create your own magic...

First let me preface that I am very seasoned traveller- taking ~20 business trips a year in addition to my vacations. I have a high standard for lodging as I spend so much time in hotel rooms. I’ve also travelled all over the world and St. Maarten ranks #1 or #2 for beauty, amenities such as nice grocery stores, and dining. I’m not a big shopper, so I can’t really comment on that (I only bought food on this trip)
This was our first time staying in Dawn Beach. I can’t tell you how much our family loved the Twin Palms Villa. The house is amazing. Lots of open space to hang out and relax with a view is to die for. Our favorite thing about the house was sliding doors that you can open and make the entire living area indoor/outdoor.
We were a family of 3 with our best friends joining. We all love to cook, so we thoroughly enjoyed the kitchen (gas stove!), dishwasher, microwave, blender and almost anything you could want. I’ve never had a rental that had knives that were sharp enough to actually cut things so we were delighted- pineapples? No problem ☺ We all drank the water from the house- tasted great and no issues.
The pool on the terrace was a big hit and a highlight for our son. I loved that I could be making a meal or cleaning up the kitchen and he could be playing in the pool just steps away. He loved the assortment of noodles & pool things for guest use. As others have noted, the beach is just a short walk down the hill and everything you need is in the house- we used the beach chairs and umbrellas several days. We also visited Orient Beach and Mullet Beach, we loved them all, the day at Mullet was quite rough- the waves were very strong so my young son did not enjoy it as much as Orient which has a nice gradual slope so he could play easily in the gentle surf.
The house is kept immaculate- the housekeeper is a sweetheart and a very hard worker (I think depending on how long you stay is how often she visits). The bedrooms are very comfortable- views are (again) amazing. The beds are super comfortable and the AC is nice to use in the evenings but you can also leave the windows open. Towels and bedding is very nice-
The owner, Lia is a gem to deal with – she is very responsive online and all recommendations she provided with the welcome letter were spot on. Lia, thank you for sharing your beautiful home – we would rent again in a heartbeat!
Our travel plans got cut short but the owners and staff members were incredibly accommodating and helped our trip go smoothly. The house was beautiful and had nice greenery with several fruit trees. Overall a lovely place to vacation.
Just got back from a week at Twin Palms and was very happy with our choice. It was perfect for two couples to share and the home had all the amenities you could ask for. Wonderfully stocked with the essentials that you need (t.p, paper towels, sugar, spices, laundry detergent, soap, etc.) and was very clean. You can tell the owners know how to be good hosts. Pool was small but nice and the pool guy came a couple of times during out stay. Location was great - we liked being so close to the Westin Casino and spent many nights there as it was an easy drive home. Owner's were great to work with although sometimes a little slow to respond - understandable as the Wi-Fi is always on island time and doesn't always work - just be patient. The views from the deck and bedrooms are to die for and waking up every morning to the sound of the surf was great. The home is located within a gated community and also has an alarm system so we felt very safe. I would definitely recommend this home.
This villa was great. My husband and I rented it for 4 nights. It would be perfect for 2 couples.
To be super critical... I wish it had been a southern facing view. We only had sun on the deck before 9:00am... and thus the pool was cold for afternoon swims or evening dips. The owner said the house had a heater for pool - but they never came to unlock it. Never saw the downstairs apartment but it's not something you'd want to stay in - no view all overgrown.
We loved bikini beach at orient. Went to pineal island one day / lovely but go early to get a front row chair- land by 11am. Dined at oyster pond Daniele ( mr buzbys) and la shambala ( killer view) and Le pressoir in grand case- all great.
Rented car from Avis- we had a little sand on seats and they charged us a sand fee of $10 - so beware . Overall Great trip - great people great food great villa.
We enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend the home and come back again. The communication in advance was so helpful. We had never been to St. Marteen before and had all of our questions answered promptly and thoroughly. We were met at the rental car pick up and escorted to the grocery store and then the house which was very helpful. Any minor issues that arose resulted in someone coming to the house to respond immediately. The pool and outdoor area is so lovely that we found it difficult to leave some days. The walk to the Westin only took minutes and was much easier than described. The beach is gorgeous, although we preferred our beautiful pool that was well stocked with pool items and the like. We went to the very nearby Oyster Pond area for great dining almost daily. Everything on the island is so close that we found the quiet and beautiful location to be perfect. But our rental Jeep was a must I would say. There were a couple of minor items on our list. The ice maker in the wet bar and second fridge were both removed. Only one ice maker in the heat made buying ice necessary. The kitchen has a beautiful and huge granite topped island. But it is counter height but has too high bar height stools (that are also lovely). You sit so high you cannot use it for dining! There are also a few items around the property that should be picked up bht nothing that interferes with a 5 star rating. For example, a discarded welcome mat sitting in the garden outside the downstairs suite. Minor items that the managers should be tidying outside. But the housekeeping inside was impeccable and the housekeeper a jewel. We loved the house and out stay. We have already recommended it to others and will look at it again.
We are a family of four, with an 8 year old and 5 year old, and could not have been happier! The booking experience with Lia was very easy and we received quick communication from her when we had questions.
I can't say enough about St. Maarten!!! The island is beautiful and there are MANY things to do. But Twin Palms was such a great retreat to return to after a long day at the beach. The villa was well equipped, from the kitchen to the pool/beach toys. Our boys loved the pool and we loved the amenities and the fantastic view!!!
We rented car and explored the island. With children, we especially enjoyed La Galion Beach and Pinel Island. Both with very calm water. Most of our favorite restaurants were in the Oyster Pond area (Big Fish, Dinghy Dock, Canoa).
Roselia, Paul and Alice were a pleasure to work with and most accommodating!
Thanks to Lia for renting your beautiful villa! We hope to return soon!!
Twin Palms is convenient to the newest casinos, restaurants and spa on the island. There is also Zip Lining at the Loiterie farm with a obstacle course.....fun for all and a must.
