Make a self catering villas or holiday rental in Terres Basses, St Maarten your home away from home

The lovely Caribbean island of Saint Maarten is divided between Dutch and French rule with two different currencies, languages and even an international telephone system between the two neighbours. However it provides two delightfully different cultures with the very best of French cuisine and boutiques and charming Dutch architecture on the southern side.

Things to Do in Terres Basses, St Maarten

The community of Terres Basses is on the western side of St Maarten at the end of Simpson Bay lagoon. It is perfect for swimming, sunbathing and watersports in the clear warm waters. Surfers enjoy the strong surf at the two-mile Long Beach while Plum Bay is a more secluded local beach with no amenities. Baie Rouge, the third beach near Terres Basses holiday rentals offers views across to Anguilla. Snorkeling and diving are popular along with sailing, kitesurfing, windsurfing and other watersports. Fishing charters and boat trips are a great way to see dolphins and other marine life. St Maarten has several golf courses including the challenging Mullet Bay Golf Course.

Places to Visit Around Terres Basses, St Maarten

For days out, head to the French town of Marigot, which has delightful duty-free shopping in boutiques and designer jewellers and a good selection of French bakeries and cafés. Philipsburg is best visited when the cruise ships are not in port as narrow Front Street can get very crowded. Once again the main shops sell clothing, perfume and jewellery making for great window shopping. Near the waterfront there is an outdoor market selling local crafts. Visit the local churches and museum in Philipsburg and enjoy a flutter at the casino.

Travel to Terres Basses, St Maarten

Best vacation experience in years!

We were referred to Rental Escapes by a friend. What a WONDERFUL recommendation. Every aspect of the process was easy and enjoyable. From finding the villa, securing rental cars and delivery food, to assisting with dinner and SCUBA diving reservations, I would wholeheartedly recommend using this amazing team for your next travel plans. We most definitely will!
