This large Villa has three private bedrooms and two full bathrooms with showers.

This Villa is located right on the beach in a small gated community. The Villas on Great Bay combines the best beach location on the island with the best mix of amenities. This quiet, secure, gated, and private hideaway is only steps away from all the exciting activities of the Great Bay waterfront, the Philipsburg Boardwalk, and all the shopping, restaurants, watersport activities and beachfront hangouts that Philipsburg is famous for. It is a daunting task each morning while sitting poolside to try and decide what the day will bring. Will you try and take it all in and do everything? Or stay right where you are and enjoy the relaxing pleasure of doing nothing at all!

Choose your Vacation Villa carefully. Our 12 unit villa complex is on the beach. Not near the beach, not a view of the beach, not six floors and two elevators above the beach, but on the beach. Walk out your door, take thirty steps, and your feet are in the sand. Or enjoy the swimming pool while visiting with the other guests. The view from poolside is of the entire Great Bay area, the cruise ships in port, yachts and sailboats at anchor, and the islands of Saba and St. Kitts in the distance. You won't need to drive to the beach, find a parking place nearby, lock up the car, and walk to the sand; you will already be there if you choose the Villas on Great Bay. If your party is greater than 4 people each additional person will be charged $ 25 per nite.

Beautiful Villa and Location~ A MUST!

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is one of #12 located in the gated complex of Villas on Great Bay. Villa #12 is huge, clean and very well maintained! Perfect for a family or more than one couple! Very private and GEORGOUS views of the garden and ocean! Doug, the owner, is WONDERFUL and is very helpful from the moment you reserve this villa!! The Villas on Great Bay is within walking distance of two small grocery stores, great shopping and the boardwalk where you will find plenty of restaurants for great food and drink. The outdoor pool is perfect for spending the day watching the cruise ships come into port, reading a book and having your favorite cocktail. It is THE BEST place to stay in Philipsburg!!

Where dreams are made of & the soul can rest!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say that I have been to the Carribean before, however, this time the experience was different in that it was better for having stayed @ the Villas on Great Bay on Sint Maarten! Have found the best & only place I want to vacation. Will be referring everyone I know & strangers, to come & check out this piece of serenity!

We were 2 families (could've brought the in-laws as we came to find out that this is the only Villa (#12)with a 3rd bedroom... next time:)) & never had to worry about bumping into/stepping over/around each other. It was tastefully decorated to feel on vacation in the Carribean.

The well stocked kitchen was large enough to host more than 1 cook in it simultaneously :o

Enjoyed many home cooked meals as there is also a bbq. Otherwise, within walking distance, there is a large & wide variety of authentic restaurants which Sint Maarten has become known for.

The large/separate living space from the other villas allowed us to feel a part of a community yet @ the same time feeling like we were in our own island oasis! Really enjoyed the covered balcony(only one of 2 villas to have, otherwise all units have the private lanais) during the couple off weather days due to Tropical storms Danny then Erica. Safety was never a concern as we had been given enough warning so that we could secure supplies. Get your cross stitching out ladies;D

A big Hello to Veronica (your friendly nighttime security guard)

I highly recommend that if you are looking for a place to get the best value for your hard earned money on a vacation, that you come to The Villas on Great Bay!

Location and amenities are the key to a successful and enjoyable vacation and the Villas on Great Bay are the perfect combination of both. Literally right on the beach, you walk out of your door and find yourself poolside, or a few more steps and your feet are in the sand.

The Villas are in the middle of Great Bay, with the Sonesta Resort a short walk to the West and downtown Philipsburg with its shops, restaurants, and the boardwalk a short walk to the East. The view of the cruise ship dock is directly across the bay; a favorite pastime is watching the cruise ships come and go. A rental car is absolutely not necessary unless you want to explore the other parts of the island including the short 20 minute drive to the French Side.

Our Villa is the largest of the twelve villas in the gated community with over 1600 sq.ft. It has two king-size bedrooms with two full bathrooms (one located upstairs and the other located downstairs). The extra queen bedroom acts as a third separate bedroom and is located on the main floor opening to the enclosed lanai or covered patio, where the view is directly to the pool area and the bay beyond. Two more individuals can be accommodated on the pull out couch in the living room, if required. Please note that extra nightly charges apply beyond 4 persons. Consult the Rates Section.

The on-site Property Manager will welcome you to your villa and will make sure everything is in order so that you can enjoy a perfect vacation. They will make recommendations for restaurants and activities, point you to the nearby quickie mart, and generally ensure your comfort.

Our location is free of the airport noise, loud clubs and traffic congestion that affects the Simpson Bay area. If your idea of a great vacation includes endless leisure activities and a great night's sleep we offer our villa as your perfect choice!
