Guestbook comments from the owner

A quick note to share that this villa is one of the finest experiences we have had on the island. We have been renting villas for the past 8 years and we can report that this is a true find and a value.

The condition of the villa is impeccable and the views of St. Barts Island and the Atlantic are world class! We enjoyed the location as it is close to several beaches and great dining options.

St. Maarten at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent travelers and St. Maarten has always been our choice island destination. Villa Dolfijn is a gorgeous, well appointed and clean villa. The views from every room are breathtaking. The gourmet kitchen is a cooks dream. All granite, stainless appliances and plenty of pots, pans & dishes. We spent much time out by the infinity pool over looking the crashing waves and boats. Great for outdoor dining and plenty of comfortable lounges for sun bathing. Located in a gated community, you are minutes from the casino, restaurants and marina. After a glorious day of sun, shopping or gaming on the island, you can retire in a king size memory foam mattress, nice linens and drift off to the sound of oceans waves. What a wonder, relaxing week!!!

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 arrived at Villa Dolfin in August 2013. I have 4 children in their 20's and we have outgrown hotels so we now have rented homes in Hawaii, Costa Rica, NY and NJ beach resorts etc. It's always a bit nerve racking because I always worry that house won't live up to the photos or description, or if the house even exists. The house does exist and its simply beautiful and in great shape; nothing outdated or in need of repair. I emailed the owner that the pictures don't actually describe how nice the house is. The house is decorated very beautifully including one of our favorite photographers prints. There is a local person who was there when we first arrived and stopped by a few times to make sure that all of needs were taken care of. In our dealings with the owner it was very easy and very professional.

We always rent homes on the ocean' but its hard to describe the view morning noon or night. Standing on the terrace and watching the waves break would have been enough of a vacation for me, but the house was so comfortable for our family that this was an unforgettable vacation. We liked the location being a short drive to Dawn Beach where we enjoyed a few meals at Mr. Busby's restaurant and we also had a great dinner at Canoa restaurant. for breakfast there is a crepe restaurant on the French side that was delicious. Orient beach is a beautiful beach to go to, but I'm sure when its in season it must be very crowded

We rented a car which is pretty interesting since many of the roads are not paved but it is very easy to get around especially because it was off season and not so crowded which added to our pleasure. Our best day was a trip to Ile de Pinel. It's a short boat ride on the French side where we had barbecued lobster on the beach. One of our family's best days ever.

We felt very safe the entire time there and have already recommended the Villa to our friends. I miss the time there already.

The Name Says It All

  • 5 of 5

Villa Dolfijn was the best! If you love the ocean, then this is the place to stay. The views from the fabulous ocean view windows accentuate the quality of this classic villa. Each room is exquisite and tastefully decorated. Most of us spent our time in the pool that seemed to flow directly into the ocean through the dolphin statues. A must see to believe! Our family had a vacation of a lifetime. Thank You!

My husband and I stayed at this Villa for 2 weeks. We abandoned our planned itinerary for a couple day trips to St. Barts & Anguilla...unlikely that anything could surpass all this home offers! Unbelievable view, privacy, comfort, complete kitchen - to find a tea kettle was the icing on the cake for us! Familiar with the island's cuisine offerings, we have a list of favorite restaurants...ended up at half of those planned because we so enjoyed just hanging out in this home. The owners are easy to work with, the house manager is available when needed. Highly recommend.

My wife and I recently spent 7 nights at this beautiful villa for our honeymoon in Jan. 2013. As this was our first trip to Sint Maarten, I was a little unsure of the location and the check-in process, and also if the villa would live up to the expectations. With a good map of the island, this is not difficult at all to locate. The manager of the property, a very nice gentleman was there to greet us when we arrived. EVERYTHING was clean and organized. The (2) kitchens are beautiful. The view is truly unbelievable. Excellent view of neighboring island St. Barth. Beaches are the best in the caribbean in my opinion. The french side is truly the worlds capital of cuisine. BEST food Ive ever tasted!! A vacation to remember forever. I cant wait to go back

Very nice three bedroom villa in dawn beach! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our group thoroughly enjoyed our 7 night stay at this luxury three bedroom villa in dawn beach. The villa was in perfect condition. We were very impressed with the furnishings and room sizes. The pool and patio area was awesome! We could hear the ocean and get to the beach in less than 30 seconds. Truly an amazing villa. The manger was very nice and easy to communicate with. Very private and in a high end neighborhood. We were very happy with our choice in villas as there are many to choose from. We made a super choice!!!!
