Overview

About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

In response to Hurricane Irma:

Our repairs will be done soon and our villa will be back better than ever!

At Villa Suzanne you can begin your day with a stunning sunrise viewed from the spacious terrace with panoramic views of the crystal blue ocean, Dawn Beach and the island of Saint Barth’s. During the day you can take a dip in our spacious pool or stroll down to Dawn Beach, one of the Caribbean's most beautiful beaches, or perhaps snorkel on its spectacular coral reefs.

Dawn Beach is located on the quiet side of St Maarten so you really feel like you are on a true Caribbean Island; some actually call it the Caribbean side of the Island.

You can easily travel to some of the most desirable beaches on the Island, such as Anse Marcel, Palm Beach or Friars Bay, all within 20 minutes.

In the evening Villa Suzanne turns magical with its soft lighting on the terraces and in the pool. Dine on the terrace and enjoy the gentle trade winds and the swaying palm trees. If you choose privacy or solitude you can retreat to the pergola and enjoy the gardens and exotic flora; perhaps, read a book or just relax.

Our terraces provide some truly beautiful views of the ocean and at night the lights on the hillside are lovely.

There are many fine restaurants available within a 5-minute drive or you can go to Grand Case, the epicurean capitol of the Caribbean, with many world class restaurants just 25 minutes away.

Villa Suzanne was designed by Francois Jaulin, a very talented and highly respected architect on island. He was instrumental in selecting all the materials and design of the custom made doors, windows, and cabinets all which were made on Island by a premier cabinet maker. He also selected the porcelain tile used throughout the villa, along with the travertine design patterns used in the bathrooms. His attention to detail was extraordinary and the results are a design that will stand the test of time with old world charm.

When you first enter Villa Suzanne you will walk through an arched door framing the view of the spacious pool and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Beyond the entrance way is the spacious living room/dining room. From the living room there is a 26-foot glass door that slides into the wall which opens up to the outside terrace and pool with breathtaking ocean views. The living area of the villa has beautiful furnishings that are comfortable and have a Caribbean vibe.

The kitchen has great views of the water, Dawn Beach and St Barth’s. There is plenty of granite counter space, plenty of cabinets, and it is fully equipped with dishes, serving pieces, pots, pans and glassware. Appliances include refrigerator/freezer/icemaker, dishwasher, microwave, oven, and a gas cook top located on the island.

You have your choice to dine outside on the terrace enjoying the beautiful views and listening to the breaking waves or inside with a more formal setting where there is a long table that can seat 8-10 people comfortably. There is an excellent selection of table cloths and napkins to give that elegant touch.

The outside terrace has ample room and furniture to enjoy the beautiful Caribbean weather. Whether you want to swim in the pool, relax in one of our 8 chaise lounges and get a tan or sit on one of the many plantation chairs under the covered terrace out of the sun to read or catch a nap.

The villa has 4 spacious bedrooms. Each bedroom has a king size bed, built in closet space, 2 safes, ceiling fans and an ensuite bathroom. The bedrooms are air conditioned, and for those who do not like ac we have found by opening the slats on the custom doors and windows, it allows the trade winds to keep you very comfortable. The bathrooms are spacious with travertine on the floors, shower and walls. Every bedroom has amazing views of the ocean.

Catherine (our housekeeper) is a true treasure; her sunny disposition and beautiful smile are a great way to begin the day. Many of our guests want to take her home. She’s available 2-3 days a week to tidy up and is very helpful and knowledgeable about the Island.

Catherine has been asked to prepare local cuisine dinners which guests have really enjoyed. We highly recommend it but be warned it’s a lot of food so prepare to have leftovers for several days.

Upon your arrival on island, should you need someone to show you back to the villa, please let us know.

Catherine will be at the villa to greet you, show you around, answer any questions you may have, and give you the keys and remotes.

There is a grocery delivery service so you can arrange to have some provisions brought to the villa. They even put the groceries away for you!

There’s a generator that kicks in automatically in case there are power outages.

A gardener and pool service are also provided.

About Susan Lydon

John and I live in the great city of Portsmouth,NH.

We are kept busy with family; a son and his family who live in Portsmouth and a daughter and her family who live in Bethesda, Maryland.

John travels world wide for his business collecting, buying and selling luxury and vintage watches.

I keep busy with Villa Suzanne!

Why Susan Lydon chose Oyster Pond

Villa Suzanne was designed by Francois Jaulin, a very well respected and talented architect on the island. He said the location was 'magical'.

We also were very fortunate to have a highly regarded

builder who typically was involved with bigger projects on the island. He was able to build our home using poured concrete, no cinder blocks here!

What makes this villa unique

The uniqueness to our home is not only does it have beautiful views, but it is ony a 3-4 minute walk to Dawn Beach.

Amazing as Always

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th visit to the Amazing Villa Suzanne. There are not enough positive things I can possibly say about this home. The owners are incredible to work with and so helpful with restaurant and beach suggestions. Our favorites being Spiga Restaurant in Grand Case (a must do) and Palm Beach.

The Villa is kept immaculate thanks to Catherine, she is so warm and friendly and the grounds are maintained beautifully. There is truly never a reason to leave the villa. The 4 king size bedrooms and en suite bathrooms are wonderful but the time spent on the patio and in the pool are truly amazing. The views of Dawn Beach from the pool are simply breathtaking and there is always a great breeze. The kitchen is fully equipped with anything you could possible need which makes eating some meals at home after a trip to the local grocery store a must. We always look forward to our relaxing vacation at Villa Suzanne. If visiting St. Martin there is no better place to stay! We consider it a true blessing that John and Susan share their home with us, truly paradise.

Dreamy vacation

  • 5 of 5

Villa Suzanne is wonderful! The photos of this place do not do it justice. It is absolutely dreamy. The views are spectacular, the walk to the beach is easy, the weather is perfect with a slight breeze all the time. Catherine was wonderful - so sweet and helpful!

Once we got use to driving on the steep, winding roads, we were grateful we had rented cars. We explored Orient Beach, Maho beach, Grand Case, Marigot and a few of our group went to Loterie Farm for ziplining (which was a workout). Our favorite meals were at La Shambala, Daniels and Calmos to watch the sunset. Mama's Pizza was very good for when we didn't feel like leaving the villa. The locals were all super friendly and nearly everyone we encountered spoke English. The wifi is not reliable anywhere so plan ahead for that. We did a fun boating tour, Eco-Tours for snorkeling and lots of rum punch. We've been to many Caribbean islands and St. Maarten is our favorite. Tip would be to avoid Phillipsburg between 3-6pm - the traffic is at a stand still. We will definitely return some day. Many thanks to Susan for the use of her beautiful villa.

Four couples in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Four couples from cold Illinois rented this villa for a week. It was fabulous! It was everything the pictures on VRBO showed and then some. Their are no words to explain the view from the pool and patio. It is breathtaking. The four king bedrooms and ensuites were beautiful. The beds were very comfortable and we appreciated the air conditioning in each bedroom. When you opened the doors to the bedrooms you could see the ocean, and feel a beautiful breeze. The living area was tastefully done. The kitchen was lovely and had a nice assortment of dishes, glasses, cookware, spices, paper products, etc. We cooked most of our meals and there was plenty of room for the four ladies to navigate. The villa was immaculate thanks to Catherine, our new friend! She is a joy to work with and is very accomodating to any wishes you may have. We shared a lot of laughs with her. She was very helpful when we had questions or wanted her opinion on what beaches to visit or where to eat. She was truly a beautiful person inside and out.

The owners were very easy to work with and prompt in correspondence.

We would all stay here again and our group of eight would like to thank Susan and John for sharing their blessings with us!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Susan!

EVERYTHING was AMAZING!

Thank you so much for giving everything we expected and more. The location, the property and the house were perfect for the four couples who enjoyed it last week. Of course Catherine and Big Daddy were extremely helpful with everything we needed. We walked to the beach many days, enjoyed the spa and restaurant at The Westin, went to Anguilla for a day, had dinner at Grand Case, spent an afternoon at the beach bar and a night at the piano bar as well. The warm breeze was so comforting and kept us a good temperature all week. If any of your guests ever ask about taxi service we strongly recommend Farid at Big Time Taxi as he definitely was very efficient and priced right.

My morning coffee will never be the same..........

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends (4 adults, 10 year old, 9 year old & 6 year old) have recently returned from a week at the Villa. This was our first experience with HomeAway, so we were cautiously optimistic about what to expect. Needless to say, Villa Suzanne has set the bar very high. The house is exactly as it appears in the photos. The breeze and the sounds of the ocean permeate through the entire house; the views from the main living area are unforgettable.

As promised, Ken met us at the airport and welcomed us just as he would welcome his own. We were thankful for the escort to the house, as some roads were very steep and narrow; literally breathtaking ;) Catherine greeted us at the home and it was like she knew us for a lifetime. She was very helpful, but never got in the way. Our pre-ordered groceries were delivered as promised (although some brands were swapped out) and the week was ours to enjoy.

We rented a car and saw as much as we could. Daniel’s by the Sea was our favorite dinner. Our second favorite was Canoa’s, which is across the street from Daniel’s (Both are a 10 minute drive from the house). We went to Maho Beach, saw the planes land, and had lunch (must do for young children); we spent a day at Loterie Farm, rented a cabana and completed the 1400 foot hike to Pic Paradis (Highly recommended). We rented a catamaran (PYC - The Mojito) and sailed to Tintmarre & Pinel Island; bad weather and rough seas killed our spirit on the way out (some fell ill), but it was still an enjoyable experience……Had the weather cooperated, I think it would have been an awesome day. We went to Phillipsburg and Marigot (climbed up to Fort Louis), and enjoyed local bakeries, grocery stores and restaurants.

All that remains are our memories and some photos (lots of photos), but we are grateful to the Lydons for sharing their paradise………A most enjoyable stay for sure…….

Best VRBO Experience!

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 6 who almost always stays in a VRBO property whenever we travel as well as having owned 2 VRBO properties myself, I have pretty exacting standards for my lodgings! Villa Suzanne hit it out of the park. The whole experience could not have gone smoother from start to finish-not one little hiccup. And then the property itself was truly exceptional. Beautiful, clean, comfortable, and fully stocked with everything we needed (right down to pool floats and a crib for our littlest one)! With four kids, we don't want to bring more than absolutely necessary plus we require a good kitchen set-up! And the the location!! Amazing views from the kitchen, living room and pool deck. Being on the Atlantic side ensured a constant breeze; i.e. it wasn't sweltering hot and no mosquitoes. Dawn Beach was indeed a close walk but we prefer to beach-hop in the Caribbean and Villa Suzanne was well-positioned for us to do just that. The final "cherry on top" were the owners and the housekeeper Catherine. Wonderful wonderful people who are truly excited about St. Martin and want you to have the best experience possible. And we did!
