Overview

About the property

CATHY’S CORNER GUESTHOUSE

This lovely guesthouse is in the heart of the residential section of St. Maarten called Oyster Pond. It is one of the best neighborhoods on the island because of the peaceful, serene, and stunning views of the pond and ocean. The neighborhood is unique because of its location on the border between the French and formerly Dutch, now Country St. Maarten, side of the island. Two beaches are within a 5-minute walk from the bungalow. Several restaurants are also within walking distance. The Westin, which offers a spectacular brunch, is only a 2-minute car ride away and Philipsburg, the capital of Country St. Maarten, is only a 10-minute drive.

The bungalow is located inside a safe gated community. Street parking is available.

- Air-conditioning

Peter was super! The cottage had exactly what we needed. The water pressure in the shower was amazing after a long day of beach.

Cute n cozy guesthouse!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a lovely, quiet stay at Cathy's Corner Guesthouse. It's a 2min walk to the beach, restaurants, and a small grocery store. The Westin is a 13 min walk up a pretty steep hill. Only ⭐️ off is because the guesthouse could be updated a bit, but was overall very charming.

CATHYS GUES HOUSE IN OYSTER POND

  • 4 of 5

On the deck you could see the bay which was beautiful. Inside the studio had wooden ceilings and antique wood work on the bed - very nice. It was a nice studio and Peter the owner was very helpful in any questions we had about the island or the studio.

LITTLE GEM OF OYSTER POND

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the island. The guest house was perfect and very private for a couple not to big or small,it is located outside the gate of main house. The fine gentleman name Peter, welcome us with a fresh fruit tray and cold Fiji water ,was very helpful with guidance since live in the island for 43 years, house it is located in the Dutch side 1 minute drive down the hill its the border French side,2 minutes drive to the marina a few restaurants a small convenience store early in the morning you can buy fresh baked baguette ,croissant and different tipe of gudies and very important buy a real street map it cost 13 dollars they sell it there,because you are going to need a car if you really want to get around the island and enjoy the beautifull beaches or enjoy the gourmet dishes at Marigot the very fine pastries at SaraFinas .Or if you want visit Anguilla a British Island ferry departs from there don't forget to bring your passport,if you really enjoy shopping drive around 25 minutes down to Philipsburg many many stores lots of jewelry.I usually leave the house in the morning and come back at night y forget to mention next to the convenience store ,a lady sell hole roostisiere chicken between 12 and 8 pm with 3 sides for 13$ a real bargain .Over all i really enjoy every minute and definitely I' m coming back,tanks for everything,process was smooth,hospitality excellent.Thanks again hopefully will see you again soon.
