Overview

Philipsburg Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths (Sleeps 4)

Private and tranquil two story beachfront townhouse (end-unit) situated directly on the white sand beach and turquoise blue waters of Great Bay, in a quiet area of Phillipsburg, the Dutch capital of St. Maarten. Lovingly and tastefully renovated and redecorated by the owners in Fall 2011.

This is a small, intimate and friendly gated complex comprised of only 12 individual villas with on-site management, an infinity pool overlooking the beach, and surrounded by lush tropical gardens. There are several lounge areas for you to choose from every day, including right beside the pool, in the shady breeze way, or directly on the gorgeous beach.

Make yourself at home in this unit (Villa #1) which has a brand new fully-equipped kitchen, complete with dishwasher. On the second floor, there are 2 bedrooms, one oceanfront with a private terrace, and a newly renovated full-sized 'spa' bathroom with a large, luxurious glass block shower.

On the main floor is the spacious living room, kitchen, dining area and a powder room. The unit is fully air-conditioned for your comfort.

You have your own private lanai shaded by palm trees where you can enjoy meals and cocktails while watching the beautiful cruise ships come and go without experiencing the crowds (a favourite past-time of all visitors who visit our complex)!

Our on-site management team are our amazing ambassadors who will happily provide you with any assistance and information you may need to make your stay more enjoyable.

The complex is isolated from the hustle and bustle of Phillipsburg, but is located a mere 5 minute stroll away. So.....you can decide to spend a quiet day by the pool or on the beach or walk into Philipsburg and enjoy the myriad of shops, restaurants and casinos that it offers, or do a little of both! It is not necessary to rent a car in order to make the most of your vacation here as there are do many amenities and activities within close proximity. There is also a local bus service nearby that is an affordable and convenient way to get around. If you do choose to rent a car, navigating the 37 square miles of the island is a piece of cake. Including Great Bay Beach, there are 37 beaches on the island (1 beach for every square mile!) and they are all within a short driving distance.

Hopefully, you will discover that this is your 'home away from home', just as we did!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Villas of Great Bay is a fantastic location to stay in Philipsburg. This is our 4th time back and it gets better and better with each visit. We had the privilege of staying in Villa #1 which has been recently renovated by very motivated new owners. Villa #1 is an end unit and right on the beach. Nothing is better than opening the sliding glass doors on the upper level in our bedroom while laying in bed and having a view through palm trees that overlooks the water. Relaxing on the new very large patio just outside the living room or bedroom and watching the Cruise Ships come in each day but yet far enough away that you don’t have to be in the hustle and bustle of all the people. Actually you can see the ocean from any room on the first floor. We were there with another couple and had plenty of room to move around but also privacy if we wanted. The new bathroom is to die for. Very large with a double sink and an open walk in shower. There is a skylight in the bathroom that just makes the bathroom so bright and open. The kitchen is very well equipped and we also enjoyed cooking on the gas grill. Everything has been renovated with very high end quality. The four of us enjoyed laying by the pool and just watching the view. The other renters of the Villas are very friendly if you want to socialize but you also have privacy if you want it. You can walk into town in about 10 minutes from the beach or take about 20 minutes by sidewalk on Front Street. Mangers Frank and Sandy will help you with anything you need from car rental, restaurants, shops, and beach suggestions. Frank delivers a newspaper to your patio each morning so if you choose you can still keep in touch with the outside world while vacationing. We could go on and on we were very happy satisfied renters for 11 glorious days. This is a place that you will want to return to time and time again. We definitely would ask for Villa #1 again. I shouldn’t be saying that because I want it available the next time we come. We don’t want too many people finding this wonderful place.

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL VILLA

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon on Villa 1.

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful villa.

The location was great for both.

I still gave the villa a 5 Stars rating because of its location, view, privacy, clean house, very confortable, beautiful decoration....

Incredible views of the beach as well as the ocean from every where in the house. A TROPICAL POSTCARD!!!!!

We already thinking of who to invite next year when we book this Villa again.

ONLY ONE WORD: FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!

You call this paradise????.......YES YES YES

  • 5 of 5

Rose Marie and Gerard have a lovely villa (villa 1). All the pictures you see, yes, they are for real and more magnifique in person.

We cooked breakfast in every day on our time. It's been a hectic year right up to the day we left for PHL airport, so doing nothing for seven days to me was paradise.

Bed is comfy, shower is warm, love the light in the handheld shower head. The lanai is relaxing while having my first cup of coffee.

All the restaurants and stores needed are within walking distance.

We never felt unsecure, at the villa, at the deli or on the boardwalk in Phillipsburg. Everyone is pleasant.

Jim is always around somewhere if you need him. Thank you Jim!

Merci Rose Marie and Gerard partager votre maison.

WONDERFUL TIME IN VILLA 1

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here in st Maarten. After long days of touring the island and relaxing on the beach, it was nice to be able to return to your villa that we treated as our home for 9 days. Your Villa was ideal for us. The view, the decor, and the sense of being welcomed to use your home was amazing. I do believe we have found our favorite vacation destination....
