Villa #5 was not well supplied ( no soap, or paper products except toilet paper). A number of lights did not work. The oven did not work and toaster oven was broken. The bed in the larger of the two bedrooms was uncomfortable. Front Street in Philipsburg is run-down and I would not feel comfortable walking there at night. The...

It's difficult to find a spot that ticks all the boxes. Warm weather, beautiful clean accommodations, pool and fabulous view, walking distance to great bars and restaurants. The Villas have that covered. What will really blow your mind though, are the great people that you meet and will always remember with a smile there. Starting with Wally the Property Manager....

Staying here is truly wonderful. The Villa 7 is clean, very spacious,nice decoration. Fully equipped with everything you need for a marvelous time. We enjoyed sitting on the Lanai having our morning coffee watching the ships come in, looking at the beautiful beach in front of us. The Villa is air conditioned if you wish or you can be open...

This was our fourth time in St Martin and our second time staying at The Villas and we cannot wait to return. The small gated complex is perfectly located, just a few minutes walk to Phillipsberg and directly on the beach. We did not rent a car, but opted for local buses which were easy and inexpensive. The Villas are...

The villas are absolutely beautiful. The location is excellent on the turquoise waters of Great Bay, just close enough to downtown Philipsburg but far away enough to be quiet and peaceful. The pool is a wonderful addition and provides a great opportunity to be able to swim at nighttime or relax without getting in the sand and being close to...

We booked this place for a week while we were on the island. The villas were beautiful and right on the beach. A short walk to town on the beach then the boardwalk. Quiet location with a pool. We will always go back to book this holiday spot for my family and I.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Villas on Great Bay are located on Great Bay Beach in a quiet residential neighborhood of Philipsburg, the Dutch capital of St. Maarten, and about 20 minutes’ drive from the island airport. Within easy walking distance you’ll find restaurants, world class duty-free shopping, casinos and nightlife, and the lively boardwalk.We are a small, gated property with a security guard on duty throughout the night, and an on-site property manager to ensure your vacation is hassle-free. Each of our villas is privately owned, but each has the same basic layout – two bedrooms upstairs (some with ensuite bathrooms) and 1½ to 2½ bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, private lanai, and each comes supplied with linens, including beach towels. Our nine beachfront villas have spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, while the remaining two overlook our tropical gardens.We know how to make your visit to our beautiful island everything you’ve hoped for and expected. ... more   less
