About Norma

From the start of your inquiry booking, you will communicate directly with Norma, and she will walk you through every step of the way, either by email or by telephone, your choice.

Once you arrive at Villa En'Sea, Roger and his on-property staff take over and will make every effort to make your stay an enjoyable experience.

The staff at Villa En'Sea strive to give the most hands on and efficient service possible.

Please know that I will respond to you by the villa's email address

Info@VillaEnSea.SX not through HomeAway email.

Why Norma chose Little Bay

We take great pride in our villa and we like to make sure that our guests are comfortable at all times. Being an island, we often lose electricity, but no worries, we have a generator that carries the entire house, so unlike many other villas, you will not be left in the dark.

Roger lives on property in his own bungalow, should you have any issues, he is there to help you. You are not left to make phone calls back to your agent in the US or Canada to find out that they are closed until the next work day.

What makes this house unique

Villa with a view, day or night. Enjoy the beautiful harbor of Great Bay during the day and see the twinkling lights of Philipsburg at night. Many villas see the ocean during the day, but see but a dark pit at night.

one of the best holidays I've ever had!

  • 5 of 5

Tracy and I stayed at Villa En' Sea in 2015 with my dental staff ( 8 other females), and had a wonderful week. I was so enthralled by the house, location, service that I decided that just Tracy and I would rent the house, (ok more like mansion) for 2 weeks, and just be here on our own.

That was what we did, and enjoyed every minute of it, in and out of the pool, walking to town, reading, I making model planes in that wonderful veranda overlooking Great Bay and watching the activity in the Bay.

We made our own meals other than two that Roger totally spoiled us with, and I think we only left the house 4 times in the 2 weeks we were there. We didn't rent a car, and were totally relaxed the whole time. It really was paradise, and we look forward to staying there again. The house is spectacular, clean, and very private. The cleaning staff were wonderful fun when they were there, and Roger made sure that we were well looked after, and everything was perfectly maintained.

Literally breathtaking view!

  • 5 of 5

This family vacation was a dream come through. We were 8 adults and 3 children and the Villa was perfect for us. The first thing we saw as we came round the bend was the view and we had a simultaneous intake of breath...Wow! As others have said, it is true that the colours of the ocean and the view are even more impressive in person. We loved the fact that each of us had our own bathroom, we absolutely loved the fully equipped kitchen, the dining room is perfect and we loved feeling the evening breeze as we ate our dinner. There is a beautiful beach within walking distance and it practically feels like a private beach! We had rented cars for the first four days and were able to enjoy some of the sites and go over to the French side of the island. We went out for dinner only once and we chose to go to The Villa restaurant in Grand Case, which was one of Norma's recommendations...all of us enjoyed every bit of our delicious meal (most of us had the fish special and they even had a children's menu) and our waiter was truly wonderful (he went out of the restaurant and found a second highchair for us)! Although a car is definitely necessary for visiting the island, once we brought the cars back, we had access to groceries, alcohol, boutiques and the beach all on foot. The location of Villa en' sea is perfect! This vacation was a special dream of mine, I wanted to experience a special week with my children and grand-children. Such big dreams can create huge expectations and I can honestly say that every single one of those expectations was met! We will be dreaming about our vacation in St. Maarten and at Villa en' sea for many months. Thank you Norma for always responding so promptly to all my emails...and a special thanks for getting that ipad back to us in record time. Thanks to Roger for being available whenever we needed him and thanks to Daphne for keeping the Villa sparkling clean!

Incredible views, beauty and comfort!

  • 5 of 5

Six adults, an incredible house, and a beautiful island!! What more could you want!! The house was beautiful, comfortable and immaculate. We woke up every morning to the most incredible views and then the day was ours. Poolside, or a short drive to the incredible beaches of the island, a ferry to St. Barths, a bit of casino. There is something for everyone, and then you go home to the pure luxury of beautiful Villa En'Sea!!! The service was excellent!! We are planning to return next year for sure!!! Loved it!!

Loved our stay! Luxurious & breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

Villa en Sea offers service, luxury, and the most beautiful view you can ask for in St Martin.

We rented this house as a family, and all rooms had en-suite bathrooms, which was a true treat. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, and so we felt very comfortable and at home.

The house was very clean, and has the best open concept kitchen.

The location is one of the best features of Villa en Sea, as we felt we were really 20 minutes from anywhere on the island.

I definitely recommend this property for couples or a family.

Thank you for having us!

Centrally located on the mountainside of Little Bay Road, enjoying views of Great Bay Beach and its harbor, Little Bay Beach, the capital of Dutch Sint Maarten, Philipsburg, and the AC Wathey Cruise Terminal. Within a short 10-minute walk to the beach, or a 20-minute walk to Front Street, the shopping mecca of the Caribbean.

The capital of French Saint Martin, Marigot, is accessible through Link 1, and is only a 25-minute drive. Orient Beach is accessible by way of French Quarter, and is a 35-minute drive away.

The Philipsburg Boardwalk is a 10-minute drive away or a 20-minute walk, there you can enjoy one of the many restaurants or a cold beer to cool off.

Villa En'Sea is the perfect spot to view some of the spectacular events of the world renowned St. Maarten Heineken Regatta.

Come and enjoy the Sint Maarten Carnival Grand Parade, April 30th and May 1st. View the beautiful array of colors, feathers and bling, not to mention lots of island music.

Other Activities: For a relaxing day, take a catamaran cruise to Prickly Pear where the snorkeling is phenomenal, or a French gourmet lunch in St. Barths, or perhaps a beach lunch in Anguilla.

Why not jump-start your vacation by spending a day at the spa. Sint Maarten has several spas that offer an array of services to spoil you.

Need an adrenaline rush, transform yourself into a human kite and parasail over the clear Caribbean Sea.

How about some zip-lining at our eco park, Loterie Farm, a 135-acre private nature reserve. Enjoy lunch at their fabulous restaurant, which uses their own freshly grown produce.

Up for a reel fight? Try some deep-sea fishing – it might be your lucky day to hook the big one.

Feeling free spirited? Enjoy a day on Orient Beach where clothing is optional. Relax under an umbrella as the trade winds keep you cool. Try some kite surfing or a refreshing ride on a jet ski.

For the exercise fanatics, a workout at the gym will help counterbalance Sint Maarten’s great restaurants.

Golf: For the golfers, The Mullet Bay Golf Course is an 18 hole golf course. Clubs and carts are available to rent.
