Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in St Maarten/Saint Martin, Caribbean your home away from home

St Maarten- Saint Martin is the smallest landmass to be shared between two nations. The French territory of Saint Martin consists of two thirds of the tiny Caribbean island whilst the other portion belongs to the Netherlands, although the border is only marked by a few sign posts and a handful of modest monuments. However, St Maarten / Saint Martin is an absolutely idyllic little Caribbean island surrounded by warm tropical waters, known for having some of the best dining, nightlife and shopping in the whole of the Caribbean.

Things to do on holiday in St Maarten, Caribbean

Despite its tiny size, St Maarten is a marvel of diversity. From the pure white sands of St Maarten’s beaches to the rugged terrain of the mountain range of the centre, the untouched landscape of the island is adorned with tiny villages, lush vegetation and the Caribbean’s largest lagoon. The mixed terrain of St Maarten means that when you first arrive in St Maarten accommodation, taking a tour of the island on foot, horseback, bicycle or even in the harness of a hang glider is a fantastic idea, but only if you can resist the lure of the famous Caribbean beaches for a few hours!

St Maarten has become the sailing capital of the Caribbean. The largely landlocked Simpson Bay Lagoon is home to a huge fleet of yachts, protected from the conditions yet with excellent access to the open ocean, there is nowhere better to take a Caribbean sailing holiday than from self catering St Maarten accommodation, letting you explore the archipelago with complete freedom.

Aside from lazy days on the beach, there is plenty to keep you entertained during your stay in St Maarten accommodation. The warm waters of the Caribbean provide a veritable playground for anyone who doesn’t mind getting wet. Almost every water sport imaginable can be enjoyed from St Maarten accommodation, ranging from surfing to jet skiing, scuba diving to kite surfing, and almost everything in between.

Known as the gourmet island of the Caribbean, St Maarten attracts many ‘foodies’, and the nightlife is both vibrant and varied, offering a huge range of clubs and nightclubs alongside twelve casinos.

Places to visit on holiday in St Maarten, Caribbean

The French side of the island is the more elegant and laidback side of the Island. Saint Martin has a wealth of secluded little beaches, luxury holiday villas and the most highly regarded restaurants in the whole of the Caribbean. There are also a huge range of top class fashion boutiques and a large selection of pavement cafes which benefit from unbelievable views over the coastline and the impossibly blue waters of the sea.

The Dutch region, St Maarten, is a fantastic centre for activity and beach holidays, with a large cruise port, plenty of sports, delightful beaches and bustling commercial centres. Wherever you decide to take self catering holiday accommodation in St Maarten, the whole island is exceedingly accessible, being just 36 square km in size, and you may not even notice when you cross the international border which runs across the island!

Weather in St Maarten, Caribbean

Rain is rare at any time in St Maarten, and you would be incredibly unlucky to receive a poor week of weather during your stay in St Maarten accommodation. Average monthly temperatures vary only a few degrees from the coldest month, January to the warmest, August, with monthly averages varying between 28°C and 31°C respectively.

Travel to St Maarten, Caribbean

You may well have seen pictures of aeroplanes arriving into St Maarten’s Princess Juliana Airport (SXM) which are memorable due to how amazingly low the planes fly over the beach in order to land. The airport receives regular flights from the UK too.
