About the property

3 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6, rooftop pool, full sea view

The Dutch side has been working hard in its recovery from the effects of hurricane Irma with work on the island going on around the clock.

Driving through the SImpson Bay area, most business's are open with many new ones popping up. There is little evidence of the hurricane's September visit in this area of the Island.

Many restaurants have rebuilt bigger and better than before. Sunset Beach Bar and Driftwood and our own Dany's Beach bar are operating full swing! Porto Cupecoy is quite lively and the restaurants are providing the exceptional food and service level as always. The island is green, palms returning, and flowers are blooming!

Shore Pointe, which is the community that Villa Sea Esta is in, has been brought back up to speed and is even more secure than ever.


Villa Sea is in its name. Postcard sunsets, everchanging shades of turquoise reflected within the spectacular ocean view, newly furnished and decorated with comfort and relaxation always in mind. This paradise villa rents to a maximum of 3 bedrooms and allows both space for entertaining and little nooks for quiet time. The main entry level holds the laundry room, 2 spacious air conditioned bedrooms with quality king-size beds, ceiling fans, modern en-suite bathrooms, walk-in closets and large patios doors leading to a shared over-sized covered terrace with quality outdoor furniture. Follow the curved illuminated staircase up to the next floor and you're welcomed to the open concept third floor holding the spacious kitchen,dining and living areas, along with a half bath. The kitchen and living areas both have over size patio doors opening up to a large covered terrace to enjoy BBQ, meals, and endless conversations. Continue up the staircase to the top floor which holds the large and relaxing master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, modern en-suite bathroom and gives a full ocean view This floor also has another half-bath and an incredible pool and fun pool deck with high quality loungers and bar area, complete with mini fridge and sink. There's also a covered comfy seating area in the 'Aquarium' for those who prefer shade.

If you can't bear to leave the pool deck, there are fantastic caterers on the island who will come to the villa, prepare an incredible meal, and leave the house as if they were never there. A must treat!

Right across the entry roundabout is Puerto Cupecoy complete with a Marina, restaurants, spa, shops, and a full service grocery store.

Shore Pointe shares a border wall with the famous La Samanna exclusive resort. Visit for an exquisite lunch or dinner and keep your eyes open for vacationing Hollywood stars and other famous people.

If you want to be adventurous, hop in your car and explore the islands multitude of beaches, snorkeling spots, shops, tours and end the day with a happy hour before returning back to your piece of paradise. If you want to stay close by, within 10 minutes from either side of the entrance, you can be on the French side exploring Marigot, visit 4 or 5 beaches or have the choice of two Casinos, shopping, nightlife, and the famous Sunset Beach Bar, where avid photographers, aviation enthusiasts, and thrill seekers try to get as close to the planes as they can for takeoffs and landings.

Simpson Bay is just 10 minutes away and it's full of great restaurants both higher end and those with a more relaxed atmosphere. Many tour bookings leave from this area as well.

When you holiday in St. Maarten, you will truly feel as if you've had a 'real vacation' and you will quickly find yourselves time.

About Sharon St. Hilaire

Having loved and enjoyed the island of St. Martin for many years, we have moved to a larger property in Cupecoy having previously owned and enjoyed a great condo on the Island. Our family is growing and we look forward to making many more great memories in Villa Sea Esta. We are certain you will as well.

Sharon St. Hilaire purchased this villa in 2013

Why Sharon St. Hilaire chose Maho

Villa Sea Esta is a newly renovated property within the prime beachfront community of Shore Pointe that was completed in 2008. If you can bring yourself to leave the private roof top pool and all the comfort and relaxation this Villa gives; nothing is very far away.

What makes this villa unique

This Villa has the view of the most beautiful sunsets on the Island and from the pool deck the incoming and outgoing cruise ships, and daytime party cruises can be seen in the distance.

The gated community provides the best security on the island while being only minutes away from some of the nicest restaurants, bars and night clubs that the Caribbean has to offer. Puerto Cupecoy with its marina, shops, delicious restaurants, and grocery store is right across the street!

Amazing Villa.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in the villa with our family, my daughter and her partner and husband and I travelled from Scotland and my other daughter and family travelled from Canada. The Villa is amazing, we had a wonderful time. Lots of space for everyone and the rooftop pool with its fantastic views over the ocean is idyllic. I wouldn't hesitate to book this villa again. I would say it's one of the best locations on the island.

Owner's Response: HI and we're so glad that you made some family memories at Villa Sea Esta. Sitting out by the rooftop pool watching the sunset and the boats come back from their day trips is hard to beat! Its also a great place to relax after a great dinner! We were there following your stay and it was hard to leave....really hard :) Looking forward to having you stay again!

Beautiful, Comfortable & Secure

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with 2 other couples, planned a two week stay at Villa Sea Esta Jan. 23 - Feb. 6. However, when the snow blizzard Jonas hit the east coast cancelling thousands of flights across the US, our arrival was delayed by 4 days! Sharon was extremely helpful and understanding throughout all of our email conversations regarding flight delays and cancellations. When we actually arrived on Jan. 27, Roger, the property manager, was waiting for us by the security gate (finally, things were going right!) and our vacation could officially begin! The villa was exactly as we anticipated, and was every bit as beautiful and clean (Rose, the cleaning lady was very good!) as shown on the VRBO website. All 3 bedrooms had comfortable king sized beds with ensuite bathrooms and balconies. The 2nd (main) floor had a fully stocked modern kitchen, although with so many fabulous restaurants nearby we did not do any cooking. The dining area and living room were tastefully furnished, but we spent most of our time together sitting on the deck where we had a great view of the gorgeous turquoise ocean and the passing ships. We spent many evenings at the sparking rooftop pool that offered a panoramic view of the ocean with many lit-up cruise ships and sailboats passing in the night. So relaxing! Friends staying elsewhere in St.Maarten who have been going there for the last 12 years met us at SXM & were so helpful in showing us their favorite restaurants, beaches and points of interest. We recommend renting a car, because there is so much to see and do on the island. Although there are SO MANY great places to eat, these were among our favorite restaurants: RENDEZVOUS:In Porto Cupecoy just behind the villa. Great breakfasts and dinners. IZZI: An authentic Italian restaurant next to the Multiplex movie theaters between Maho & Phillipsburg. Best lasagna ever! SINT MAARTEN YACHT CLUB: Next to the drawbridge Have a drink & grouper fingers & watch all of the yachts come and go. The bridge goes up at 3,4 & 5:00. LAYLAS: A little hard to find, but worth it! Just before Marigot it is on the left. Shaded outdoor bar/restaurant. As for beaches, Cupecoy beach at the villas is beautiful, but mostly nude (but friendly) in the evenings..still a must see. Mullet beach was our favorite. Don't hesitate to rent this property! Sharon was so easy to communicate with and the villa is truly one of the nicest places on the island! We will definitely be back!

We stayed in Sea Esta in early May. Loved the location, the multiple patios and mostly the rooftop pool. Drawing yourself away from the pool to the private access beach down below was a difficult decision each day. The master bedroom was comfortable and quiet, bathrooms clean and well stocked. Having a BBQ grill was a nice benefit after long beach days. It's only short walk each morning for fresh pastries and coffee in Porto Cupecoy. We found the security staff were all friendly and attentive. We can't wait to return next year.

Very Pleased Canadian renter

  • 5 of 5

Our friends and family have been going to St. Marten for the past 15+ years. We have had to change our place to stay as our villa was sold. We were very nervous to find a new location. We know the Cupecoy area so when we saw the Villa Sea Esta online we inquired about the property and had great response. There was no reason to be nervous about this property it was better than all the pictures and the owners were so nice to deal with. They made us feel like part of their family. Everything we had to deal with seemed so easy from booking the right week to paying. It is always scary paying people when you haven't met them before but it all went very smoothly. When we arrived they were there to greet us and show us around. It is a beautiful villa with views off every level. It is very clean and we felt right at home. The only thing that may be a concern to some is there are a lot of stairs but we found it great exercise after all the wonderful food and drinks on this island. The view of the cruise ships and sunsets every afternoon off the roof top pool deck were spectacular and I miss it everyday now that we are home. We really thank Villa Sea Esta for a great location that made our week so wonderful. Can't wait to return. Don't hesitate ever in booking this property it is beautiful and a great location in St. Marten. Thanks Sharon for a wonderful holiday and a great find for the future.

I have traveled extensively and often spend countless hours researching vacation home rentals. I did the same as we planned our trip to St. Thomas. My efforts paid off because this home is without a doubt one of the best! We stayed for a week with 2 other couples who have extremely high standards- it was my job to find the perfect place. Villa Sea Esta did not disappoint. The location is outstanding! It is a short walk to the Cupecoy marketplace which we frequented quite often. The views from the villa are incredible and we will cherish our memories watching the sunsets by the rooftop pool. The furnishings are well maintained and the villa is spotless. The owner, Sharon was incredibly responsive and professional. Do not hesitate to rent this villa. We plan to return to this beautiful island soon and will look no further than Villa Sea Esta.
