Oyster Pond House Rental Photos and Description

Marina Home with Spectacular views - 2 bedrooms, 2.5 full bathrooms, 6 sleeps

Are you looking for perfect, private accommodations while you explore and enjoy the island of St Martin and enjoy all the beautiful beaches? Love a beautifully furnished place with all the creature comforts of home and one that also affords spectacular waterfront views? Would you like a retreat that is on the quieter side of the island and yet close to plenty of recreational activities and great restaurants? Enjoy lounging at infinity pool? Look no further - Corinne's Town Home has it all!!

Picture this - Returning from a lazy day on the silky sands of Dawn Beach (a few steps right across the street), you anticipate relaxing on one of the two private decks of your large, luxurious duplex Town Home, cool drink in hand, a gorgeous view of gently rocking yachts in the harbor, and suddenly you see pelicans diving for their dinner. This spectacular view renders my new property in the Coral Beach Club a heavenly place to rejuvenate, revitalize and refresh yourself.

Super comfortable, tastefully and luxuriously appointed, my 1800 square foot, fully air-conditioned home offers it all - privacy, comfort, lovely water views, daily maid service, concierge service, private gym and garage.

Cool Travertine stone floors throughout and the 9 1/2' ceilings provide a gracious feel. Town Home features large living room, dining area, fully equipped kitchen, two outdoor decks, 2 master bedroom sites with full baths, plus powder room on the lower floor In addition, there is a small office complete with desk, printer and office supplies. Wifi throughout the home.

Four excellent restaurants are with a minute walk and the marina is at your doorstep if you wish to book a boat excursion. Food can be delivered to the home prior to your arrival. Just bring your clothes and personal items because everything you need is here - robes, bath necessities, beach towels, cooler, etc.

After a day exploring the island or other beaches or perhaps a boat trip, you return at day's end to enjoy the spacious living room that invites you to lounge in plush designer furniture while you view 55' LCD TV or watch movies on blue ray DVD player. For your listening pleasure there is an IPod dock with disc player and good selection of music. If you decide to move out to the comfortably furnished deck, a portable IPod player is available for use outside. Grab the ice bucket, chill down your wine or whip up a pina colada in the blender and choose glassware from the large selection in the bar and enjoy the harbor lights and twinkling hillside.

Dining area boasts large glass table for 6 with all necessary dinnerware, flatware, and serving pieces. A bar holds appropriate glasses for all your drinks. The bedrooms boast euro-topped mattresses, 800 thread count sheets and can best be described as sleeping on a cloud as one of the guests mentioned in her review. Modern, stone tiled baths with abundant towels and bath supplies - soaps, shampoos, conditioner, lotion, etc.

If comfort and convenience is king with you, my home will not disappoint!

About Corinne Margulies

My husband and I fell in love with St. Martin 20 years ago and have been vacationing there ever since. We bought Villa Corinne which is a beachfront property across the street from this new Town Home over 6 years ago. When this home in the same Coral Beach Club became available, we decided to buy it and have two places to enjoy and also rent to discriminating guests.

We live in New York City and the island is our favorite get-a-way. In addition we have a home in Naples, Florida where we spend some winter months. We are definitely 'sunshine' people. My husband recently retired and we plan to enjoy all of our lovely homes but especially our Town Home and Villa Corinne.

Corinne Margulies purchased this house in 2011

Why Corinne Margulies chose St Maarten / Saint Martin


What makes this house unique

Gorgeous views of the harbor. Dawn Beach across the street. Beautiful new pool. Three restaurants a minute's walk. Close to shopping in Phillipsburg. Twenty minutes to the French side and great restaurants. My home is spacious and designer decorated and offers almost anything you need for a great vacation - BBQ, gourmet kitchen and all appliances plus Euro topped mattresses with 800 thread count linens. Comfortable, beautiful and convenient.

Beautiful villa in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in Corinne's villa. When we walked in we immediately were blown away by the massive gourmet kitchen and the beautiful glass dining room table and tastefully decorated living area. We were then led out to a beautiful outdoor patio with tons of seating and a beautiful outdoor picnic table which we enjoyed breakfast each day as we gazed out on the marina. The bedrooms are lovely and each has its own balcony, one which also looks out at the beautiful marina. I stayed in the villa with just my girlfriend but it could comfortably fit another couple or two as there's so much space. The location is pretty ideal in that it's away from the craziness and is tucked away in a really beautiful part of the island called oyster pond. We had such a wonderful time and would highly recommend this villa. I am a frequent Airbnb user and this was one of the best stays I have had. Corinne was so helpful and responsive she even helped my girlfriend plan a surprise birthday cake for me ahead of our stay. She also offered to have us stay an extra night free of charge as there was a hurricane approaching New York around the time we were heading back. It was such a nice and warm offer but thankfully we made it home after the storm. All in all 5 stars. Thank you for such a wonderful experience Corinne.

still perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth time staying at Corinne townhouse and it was as perfect as the previous time. The townhouse is still in great condition and we continued to enjoy the proximity to three great restaurants just steps away. The view of the bay and looking at the boat leaving is wonderful while having your coffee in the morning. The townhouse is perfectly located so that all our favorite beaches on the island ( dawn, bikini, Pinel) are just a few minutes away. Victoria is still there (maid) and does a great job. I can conclude by saying that my wife and I are very sad when our vacation dates to St Maarten does not fit with the avaibility of the townhouse.

We have been there 14 times now and this is our favorite place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I love having you enjoy my home and the very special island of St. Martin. As you mentioned, the beaches are in close proximity, restaurants nearby and having your coffee on the deck facing the marina is a great way to start the day. Please continue to consider my home as " your home away from Home" when you are in the island. Corinne & Richard Margulies

Fantastic town home!

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering Corinne's town home, the first thought is WOW!. Everything is modern and clean. All of the pictures posted on the listing are accurate. It is a beautiful town home. All you have to do is explore and find anything you are looking for from sunscreen, aloe vera, laundry detergent, batteries all the way to shampoo and conditioner. The town home is clean and very welcoming upon arrival. The gourmet kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal. The beds are comfy with wonderful sheets and pillows. If you can't find something, just ask! Corinne is a quick email away and the staff of the Coral Beach Club is just a phone call or quick step away. Daily maid service is wonderful. There are wonderful restaurants within walking distance (Canoa, Big Fish, Daniels by the Sea, Mr. Busby's and Beau Beau's) with an expanded convenience store since our last visit in 2011 that has fresh baked croissants each morning at 7:00 a.m. Get there first thing or they are quickly gone. The chocolate ones are to die for! Also you can get a deal at the jewelry shop beside Canoa. The town home is a very short walk to the beach with the Coral Beach Club setting up beach chairs for your use. The marina side is beautiful and was fun watching the sailboats come in and out of the marina. The PYC boat company had a busy week while we were there. During our stay, the semi-private infinity pool was our private pool. We loved it! We also enjoyed the afternoon shade on the upper and lower levels of the town home with the marina view. At night, it is beautiful with all the lights shimmering on the water. Easterly winds provided a wonderful breeze. My husband and I would highly recommend Corinne's town home to anyone wanting to relax, sit back, read a good book, and enjoy life! Thank you Corinne for a wonderful visit. Looking forward to the next visit!

A wonderful Town House in a great location

  • 5 of 5

While this town house is rather private, it is convenient to the beach, casual and fine dining restaurants, food & wine store. The decorations are second to none. The staff was VERY accommodating. We plan to enjoy it again.

My family of 4 just returned from 6 days of heaven at Corinnes Townhouse. I wish every vacation was as good as this one. You will be spoiled rotten and will never be able to stay anywhere else- they house is stunning, the ammenties are incredible, the Coral Beach Club is wonderful and it was just the BEST. We have visited ST. Maarten many time, we will never stay anywhere else again. It was also the best VRBO we have ever rented. Nothing was overlooked. groceries ordered online and delivered.Complimentary pick up at the airport. Restaurant reservations made- just every detail taken care of from start to finish. Just go- it is a slic eof heaven

Amazing Week

  • 5 of 5

This was the best trip my wife and I have ever taken together. The amenities were top notch and if you can imagine the activity you can find it on the island. Corinne's townhouse was absolutely perfect..It had everything you could imagine and truly sets the tone for your vacation. We would love to make this trip an annual occurrence..
