Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, Private Pool, Large Deck, Total Privacy, Beautiful Views, Calm Beach

A beautiful new house in a private gated community, with a lovely secluded beach and 24 hrs security onsite. Yet it is just 5 minutes to great restaurants, duty free shopping, casinos, spas and grocery stores. Plus it is only 10 minutes from Princess Julianna Airport. Our 3 bedroom house comfortably sleeps 6 adults. There is free wireless internet, internet TV, air-conditioning in all rooms, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, wine refrigerator, coffee maker, washer/dryer, outdoor gas grill and very nice large deck with a private pool with complete privacy and amazing sunset views. Parking for 2 cars. This house is the last one on the hill with a full view of the beach and sea with no access or privacy issues from neighbors. It is the only house in this area with total privacy from both sides.

Indigo Bay is the most centralized point in St Maarten, but without airport noise or night life stress. However you can get to the center of the city to enjoy great restaurants, Duty Free shopping and live music within minutes. St Maarten is a mountain island with just one main road, so location is very important here. This house can provide you an easy way in or out to both the Dutch & French side of St. Maarten. The great Beach bar restaurant at Indigo Bay is Kokomos and provides an amazing food experience with a French/American menu. They also have cabanas, chairs & umbrellas and beach boys offering food & drink service on the beach . The beach is very calm and safe for kids and family. The house sits on the side of the huge bay with both sunset and mountain views. If you would like more pictures please ask us and we will be able to send you anytime.

About Rick & Patricia Robinson

We are world travelers that understand excellent customer service. Rick is originally from the U.S. and Patricia from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. After working many years in high level service businesses (including hospitality) and seeing many beautiful places around the world, in 2014 we decided to settle in the Caribbean and moved here to St. Maarten.

A great house in a. great location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay for people who like seclusion and independence on their vacation. It is located up on a hill with a fantastic view over Cay bay. There are several other condos attached to it, but because of the very steep hill, they are terraced and at very different levels. This unit, being at the end, has one side open to a lovely garden and natural hillside, with a large deck and a lovely mid-sized swimming pool.

The house was very comfortable for our party of 3 couples. Only one of the bedrooms has an ensuite bathroom, the other two smaller bedrooms upstairs sharing a large bathroom on the upper level. All three bedrooms have a fantastic sunset view over the bay. The house is well insulated for sound-- with the windows and doors closed you can't hear the neighboring unit, or even if there are people in the main area playing music or watching TV (so people with kids could safely tuck them in upstairs without fear of waking them up!)

The kitchen is well equipped, with a dishwasher, toaster oven,microwave, gas stove, refrigerator, and wine chiller. We ended up buying food from the local Cost-U-Less and making dinner most nights, because the view from the dining room table out on the balcony was spectacular.

The island being as small as it is, you will still definitely need a car. Driving in St. Maarten is easy... there's really just one main road. We used the the home wi-fi to google map our routes before we headed out. Kokomos beach resort is at the bottom of the hill, about a 5 minute walk or two minute drive away. Renting an umbrella and chairs is 15 USD, but it's a public beach so you can bring some towels and sun yourself for free if you like. Driving to restaurants at Simpson Bay, Phillipsburg, or going to the French side of the island are all easy drives, and we had a fun time exploring the beaches.

Rick and Patricia were great hosts. The condo was clean and they were a great help showing us around and making recommendations. That being said, the house, deck, and pool were so nice it was often hard to get motivated to head out and explore the island!

We had a great time. If you like independence and seclusion, are comfortable driving on the island, and want an excellent stay close to everything-- this place is fantastic. The photos don't do it justice. We would definitely rent again.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay! Patricia was a great host. I texted her a few times with questions about the island and she always responded very promptly. The beds at the villa were very comfortable. The kitchen had tons of pots and pans to make cooking very easy. It's very close to airport but you rarely heard any plane noise. The beach is a short down hill walk down the road, maybe 10 minutes max.

Amazing house!!! Private, & 5min walking to a great beach!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Villa Vita in Indigo Bay and had incredible experience. The views from the outside deck can only be described as…wow ! 180 degree views of Indigo Bay and it's beautiful secluded beach.

Since this is a closed development, the beach is never crowded. It took us less than 5 min down in a nice road walk to the beach from the house. It is very protected calm beach, turquoise clear water sandy beach. Kokomo beach restaurant is very nice with a great food and free beach chairs/ umbrellas with service on the beach.

The house is new, modern and well appointed with everything you need. With confortable beds that accommodates 6 adults. The outdoor deck is very large with a private pool, gas grill and covered dining area. .

We loved relaxing in the pool at the end of the day watching the beautiful Caribbean sunsets and at night with its lovely outdoor lighting while gazing at the stars. The landscaping is lovely with coconut palm trees, banana trees and flowering bougainvilleas. The house is the only one totally private, because is the last one in the line of 8 houses. The other houses are squeezed between each others. But his one has double land and the house and deck has an empty large land beside, what makes it totally private. You just can see the sea and green around you. We are glad we had choose this one!

The neighborhood is quiet and safe with 24 hour security.

We saw a negative review about mosquitos, but we did not have a problem during our stay. Maybe because we protected ourselves with spray and wrist bands. Also they said that beach is far what is NOT TRUE at all. Also the road is empty and beautiful to walk watching the views and birds.

You will need a car while you are in St Maarten, because there are so many other beaches to see and fun things to do (hiking, horse back riding, zip lining, shopping, cute villages on the French side, day trips to Anguilla & St. Barth and more. Taxis are expensive in the Island. All of the big car rental agencies are there.

The owners are very nice and helpful. They come to check you in and they will answer all you questions and guide you to the Island. Also a file is there with info for you.

This trip was truly a stay in paradise and we were sad to leave. We cannot wait to rebook next year once we confirm our dates. We highly recommend staying in this lovely home to anyone considering staying there.

Thank you Rick & Patricia!

Paradise in Indigo Bay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the vacation rental of Particia and Rick Robinson. The home is so beautiful and the views are incredible. The bedrooms are well appointed and the pool area is so private. The beach at Indigo Bay is also beautiful and pretty much deserted. It is a good beach to not only swim but also to snorkel. We enjoyed how private the home was yet so centrally located on the Dutch side and a short drive to desired places to visit. Less than a 10 minute drive to the Boardwalk, 10 minutes to the airport, 15 minutes to Mullet Bay, 15-20 minutes to Cupecoy, and about 5 minutes to the grocery store Le Grande Marche (nice store, great prices). Our hostesses Patricia and Rick are also so nice and accommodating. Rick greeted us at the house the 1st day and was very nice and brought fishing gear over and fished with my son. If you are looking for a nice beautiful oasis that is private but yet so close to everything then you should consider this property. We loved our 10 days in the home. Thanks again Patricia and Rick!!!!

Beautiful home, gorgeous.view!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 days and 7 nights in this beautiful home close to everything but far enough from the hustle of the city to enjoy the tranquil view. The pool was perfect day and night. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we would ever want and more. Patricia met us the day we arrived and graciously gave us directions to the best beaches, grocery stores and easiest ways to see the other islands. We met Rick during the week following a horrible storm on the island to ensure we had encountered no problems during the night. We've stayed in a lot of VRBO homes and often are only met by a management company so this was a real treat. They are hands on owners, wonderful ambassadors of the island and want theiir guests to have only the best experience. We appreciated the security at the entrance to the community and didn't find the nearby construction to be obtrusive at all. My only wish is that there would be a house number on the outside. All of the units look the same from the road, very few have house numbers and on day one it was a little difficult to tell which one was the right one! This gorgeous vila is definitely worth every penny!
