About the property

This two bedroom, one and a half bath townhouse Villa #6 is situated right on Great Bay Beach in a small complex of eleven individual villas with a lovely beach front pool and breathtaking ocean views.

This Villa #6 is one of only two Villas that has a fully unobstructed view of Great Bay on the second floor deck.

This gated complex, with full time on-site management, is the perfect place to just lounge around on your own private lanai or on your elevated deck overlooking the beautiful beach, or just to relax around the pool.

The location is ideal because it is only a short walk into the shopping area by using either the street or the beach. There are nightclubs and casinos within walking distance so you do not need to rent a car for the whole week, but a day trip around the island is highly recommended.

This is the only Villa that you can wake up in the morning and watch the cruise ships from your bed! What a view!

Besides relaxing by our gorgeous beach or beach-side pool and patio, you can travel to St. Barts or Anguilla, which is a short leisurely walk to the marina and a quick 30 minute boat ride away!

Our upgraded Villa provides you with all the amenities of home while being steps from the best shopping in the Caribbean and arguably the best beaches! Philipsburg is renowned for its duty free shopping which includes but is not limited to jewelry and fine Cuban cigars (which can be obtained for under $10 each).

If there is no availability during your desired timeframe, please see our sister Villa #5's calendar (VRBO # 447282) located directly beside this unit (especially if you are travelling with family/friends).

About Doug

We are Canadian and have been traveling to St Maarten since 1982 and most recently have been staying at other spots on the island but fell in love with the quaintness of the gated community concept and decided that this is where we want to spend our retirement years when that happens in the future.

Doug purchased this villa in 2011

Why Doug chose Philipsburg

Where in the world can you walk 8 steps and be on your own sandy beach? In addition to this, you can walk into town for fine dining or walk around the corner to the store and pick up a couple of steaks and kick back. You have the best of all worlds!

What makes this villa unique

This unit provides a panoramic view of the Bay! If you want to get out of the sun you can enjoy the soft Caribbean breeze that flows through the Villa!

The Villas on Great Bay are close enough to the lively boardwalk and restaurants that St Maarten has become famous for and just far enough away for those restful times with family and friends.

Didnt know what to expect

  • 5 of 5

We have always went all inclusive and we were not sure what to expect, we arrived early since we were already on the Island and Jim welcomed us let us put our luggage in his villa till ours was ready. We quickly knew that we had made the right decision on renting unit#6. Jim made us feel as though we were at home from delivering us a basket full of crackers and cheese to delivering my husband a newspaper everyday. We can honestly say it was the most relaxing vacations we have ever had, throughout the week we had befriended most if not all of the other guest at the villas and we quickly made the decision to return for two weeks for March 2016. It says a lot when our 13 year old son did not say he was bored once, We are looking forward to our return and also looking forward to seeing everyone that was there this past March. Thanks to Jim for helping us with things to do places to eat and getting us a ride to the Airport

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa 6 for 2 wonderful weeks. We loved everything about the island and villas. Jim and Gina took great care of us. Gave us lots of great information. They added to our vacation in so many ways. We got to know the area very quickly and I bought fresh bananas and mangoes from a nice lady on the street and made amazing daiquiris daily! We rented a car to tour the island and always had a parking spot when we returned. We were there during carnival and thoroughly enjoyed the parades right outside the villas!! The facility is spotless. Planning to return in 2014 for another 2 weeks!!
