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

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.

What an incredible location. Very private and steps away from what felt like a private beach. Everything you need at your fingertips. We loved the gazebo by the beach and spent lots of time there lounging, reading and playing cards. Perfect way to stay outside even if it's too hot for some people in the afternoon. The whole place was perfect and have nothing bad to say and highly recommend.

Breathtaking from the moment we walked in. Stunning views and welcoming faces made me melt immediately into a chair to relax and Siam it in
