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.

Wonderful Vacay with the most amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at this villa and had issues getting in as the code did not work. Luckily, we were able to connect to the internet at the home and call the manager who showed up immediately to let us in! She was very nice and accommodating! Told us to call if we needed anything and gave us the keys/code and rundown of the home. The home is gorgeous! Plenty of space for 3 couples and you cant hear a thing through the bedroom walls. The view is just unbelievable and all rooms open up to it through glass sliding doors. So much to explore by walking down the stairs to the bottom or taking the road for a walk. Private, clean and top end. Even towels were provided! There are 2 kitchens which is nice if needed. Plenty of chairs outside to lounge in and a nice table to eat at. Gardner and Pool maintenance come 2x/week and keep everything looking fabulous. Everything about this place is top notch and we would go back in a heartbeat!

The Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Having traveled and stayed in several different places over the last 30 years I am excited to share my last 3 visits to St Maartin. This is absolutely the best accommodation EVER!

I did not want to go to the beach once!!!! The view from the pool is better and more relaxing. There is a marvelous infinity pool with bronze dolphins that overlook St. Bart's. The sound of the waves are so relaxing and the home is perfectly situated on a hill which is completely private.

Inside the home everything is updated and well decorated with more than you would ever expect. Amazedly enough there are 3 bedrooms with separate bathrooms and each are completely private.

The master has an amazing flow which includes a very large closet, bedroom, and a bathroom (with a whirlpool tub & shower), living area, and bar/kitchen. In fact, all of the living areas are large and very comfortable.

You can live both inside and outside while staying in this house due to all of the windows with a view. Its paradise! I relax, read, cook, and never get tired of the perfect view!

Don't miss out on the perfect vacation. Book it soon!!!!!!!

Paradise - Pictures don't do justice

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Villa Dolfijn for several days and I have to say as remarkable as the pictures look, the reality is so much more breathtaking. Everything inside is clean and updated - granite counter tops, gourmet kitchen, new appliances. The bedding is soft and with clean sheets and new matelasse coverlets. All bedrooms and living areas have patio access and sweeping views of the ocean. There are skylights throughout making everything bright, open, and spacious. The Master Suite has its own private living quarters and kitchen, and an expansive bathroom with jacuzzi tub and large walk-in shower. Really, though, as great as the interior is, the highlight of this property is the pool. Since the property sits up on a rocky cliffside and the pool has an infinity edge, the view from the pool directly overlooks the ocean with a clear view of St. Bart's. It was so enjoyable sitting out there sipping cocktails and watching the waves - one day we even got to watch a small storm roll across the ocean, engulf St. Barts, then roll past. There is only one other property visible from the patio and it was empty at the time we were there, so it was like having the island all to ourselves. The beach is very rocky with steep stairs down, but we had hiking shoes so we were able to venture out onto the rocks and watch the waves crash and bring in all the little sea creatures. Driving from the airport we stopped and bought groceries so we could cook a few nights (because why would you want to leave this place!?) But we did venture out a little to Oyster Bay to eat at some of the restaurants there. We rented a car because it was easier and really about as expensive as a taxi to and from the villa (you are about an hour from the airport), and it gave us freedom to do a little exploring, although really this is the perfect place to come and just sit for days. There are U.S. cable channels, WiFi, and some DVDs and board games. And a great sound system! I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a beautiful retreat - is SO affordable for what you get! I don't know if it would be ideal for very small children. It is more suitable for adults and families with teenagers or older kids, and it is GREAT for couples! My husband and I are already planning our return next year!

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.
