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.

Weather in Terres Basses, St Maarten

Visitors to Terres Basses holiday rentals can enjoy the warm tropical climate that St Maarten enjoys year-round. The island has more rain showers between July and November, peaking in early September. Terres Basses has sunshine all year round with average temperatures between 78-80°F (25-26°C) in winter and 82-84°F (28-29°C) in the summer. There are refreshing sea breezes particularly during the winter months.

Travel to Terres Basses, St Maarten

St Maarten has just one international airport serving Terres Basses holiday rentals. The Princess Juliana International (SXM) Airport is on the south (Dutch) side of the island. It is about 7 miles (11km) from Terres Basses and is easy to reach by taxi or hire car along Airport Road. The airport is served by many international airlines including Delta, Air Canada, Spirit and KLM. The airport runway is parallel to Simpson Bay Beach giving bathers and airplane spotters a somewhat noisy view of each arrival and departure just yards away. A hire car is not essential for enjoying a beach vacation in St Maarten but it is necessary for exploring the more remote villages and secluded beaches.

New Year at Grand View

5 of 5
The Villa is beautiful with, not surprisingly, grand views. Excellent en suite bedrooms. Lots of public spaces to relax in. Beautiful pool. French restaurants on the island have amazing food, whether you want fancy or casual. We rented two cars and it was easy for our group of 10 to get around. The concierge team was incredibly helpful and responsive. Highly recommended!

New Years Eve Getaway

4 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the villa but there were a few things that could use improvements. 1) Due to air traffic control, our flight arrival time was moved. We relayed this to our concierge but the taxi driver who transported us to the villa made several comments about having to wait for us which was uncomfortable. 2) Our pre-arranged rental car was not there upon arrival as promised. Thrifty showed up later in the evening with the wrong car and promised a new one by the next day, Friday. By Saturday we still never received our car and went to Thrifty ourselves. They got us the original car, a four door jeep, and said we would receive a discount. We did not. 3) Upon arrival to the home, one of the bedroom's air conditioners was broken. While the owners fixed this by the next day, we would hope this would be checked prior to the guests arrival. Once the new unit was fixed, the unit in the living room stopped working. We did not report this as we were trying to just enjoy our vacation. 4) The dishwasher had pieces falling off which the housekeeper was able to fix but this would be another point to have the villa inspected prior to check in Positive items to note: 1) We loved the pool area at the home, very relaxing and comfortable 2) We very much enjoyed our on island concierge who checked in on us 3) The housekeeper was outstanding! 4) The chef was very enjoyable as well but the menu did not match the one emailed to us
