Overview

Dawn Beach Estates House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2 with option to add

La Palana (“Ocean” in Carib) is nestled in a quiet Dawn Beach residential area on the Windward Side of the island and requires only a ten minute walk to the beach. Breakfast is served every morning on your terrace. Choose from a gourmet selection using our own garden and local produce where we can. Eggs benny, coconut crusted french toast, pancakes or local eggs, bacon and toast, are a few of our choices. We are a family-friendly B&B where you can read a book on the terrace, have a nap in the hammocks swinging from the coconut trees, bask in the sun or just find a shady spot in the garden to enjoy some cooling sea breeze. Whatever pleasure St. Maarten holds for you, La Palana is a perfect getaway.

We have an ocean view towards St. Barth’s but our main focus is our lush organic gardens which provide serenity and beauty as well as many edibles ripened by the warm Caribbean sun. Your hosts are avid gardeners and also trained chefs. We prepare daily a sumptuous breakfast, something new for every day of your stay. When possible we use produce from our organic gardens and always have something in our harvest basket. We try to be green here, watering our gardens with rain water we collect and solar heat our hot water.

La Palana is a spacious one-bedroom suite with full kitchen and bathroom. It is perfect for couples alone or with small children. The suite is newly-built in 2013. We provide daily housekeeping service, beach towels and there is 24-hour security. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves and wake up to gentle birdsong. Plan your day as the sun begins to warm the air and the gardens awake with you. We look forward to welcoming you to St. Maarten and La Palana. Please email us with any requests, concerns or questions. We are most happy to help.

Great B&B

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Palana's for two nights and it was just wonderful. It's situated in a nice quiet and gated residential area with beautiful views of the ocean and St. Barth's. Jennifer's lush garden with its nice supply of fruits, which we got to enjoy some of at breakfast is an added bonus. Breakfast was outstanding. Jennifer was also very helpful in providing us with tips what to see on the island.

Amazing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Jen was such a wonderful host. Her breakfasts were amazing and she was always so accommodating. She sent us directions and a menu of the breakfasts prior to our arrival. She cleaned and tidied up every day which was an unexpected amenity and a definite benefit to staying here. Her knowledge of the island was helpful and allowed us to experience the island. With the property being located in a gated community, we always felt safe. Being a mom and not traveling with my kids, we were able to use the WI-fi to video call our children. Jen has two amazing well behaved children who would always say "good morning" to us which made us feel closer to our children at home. I highly recommend this property to anyone traveling to the island. If ever I get a chance to return to St. Maartin, I will be staying here.

Superb!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week of delicious breakfasts, 24 hour refreshing breezes at Dawn Beach Gourmet Bed and Breakfast! We would highly recommend this guest house belonging to a lovely family!! The view is exquisite for breakfast-served-at-home and made for getting the day off to a lovely start. The grounds are beautiful to walk through, the neighborhood is perfect for early morning walks. The bed and breakfast is very neat and clean and offers all one could ask for and more. There is even a clothesline to hang clothes out in the sunshine and fresh air, if needed.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay here. Great breakfast every day. Away from the hustle and bustle of town, but still close enough to drive there if we wanted to hit a restaurant. Great place to be based to explore the island.
