Photos and Description of the Oyster Pond vacation villa rental

One bedroom villa with separate sleeping area for two other family members.

Hope Cottage is hidden away at the top of the hill overlooking Oyster Bay. The views of the Atlantic Ocean and the surrounding islands are spectacular.

Architect designed just for us as a year-round vacation retreat, this neat 1000 square foot villa and its lush gardens is the perfect vacation getaway for any couple or small family and is ideal for a honeymoon or a holiday with a special friend. We wanted to accommodate family and friends so our living room features two couches that convert to single beds with a full bathroom attached.

Gentle ocean breezes keep us cool while sunning ourselves at our lovely private pool. At the same time, you are only a short distance from some of the best beaches on the east end of the island.

Out of love for 'his' garden, our gardener sprays our property for white fly every week. That this also kills Mosquitos is of little interest to him but it pleases us as we go to Sint Maarten in the summer to get away from them.

A few years ago, a guest commented that while Hope Cottage was lovely, the bathrooms were dated. So, we closed our villa for three months in 2014 for a major renovation of both bathrooms. When we returned, we were greeted with full European style modern bathrooms with the master bathroom featuring dual showers, regular and rain, with sleek, wall-hung toilet and bidet.

In 2016, we again closed the villa and replaced some of the many french doors with windows featuring screened openings improving ventilation while keeping mosquitos at bay.

While we use our villa in July/August and November/December, we welcome guests during other periods. Our villa is usually fully booked for High and Holiday Seasons and we are taking reservations for the Hope Cottage's 2017 High and Shoulder Seasons (Jan 7 - Apr 22 and Apr 22 - May 27) for $2485 and $1995 respectively.

Although Hope Cottage is located in a gated community, we have taken extra measures to make ourselves and guests feel safe and comfortable by installing a mechanized gate at the top of the road leading to just three villas. Mechanized hurricane shutters can let in some light and provide air circulation. If guest choose, these shutters can be closed when leaving or during the night to provide an extra sense of security. Skylight and all windows have custom, fitted screens.
