We stayed at this property in St Maarten in 2016 and had a wonderful time on the Island. We are amazed to see the upgrades to the Villa, it is even more beautiful than before. There are new steps to the beach that make access so much easier. The side patio has been re tiled and enlarged, perfect for tanning and enjoying the cooling breeze from the ocean. So nice to walk outside from the living area into the sunshine and feel the warm breeze on my body. We loved the island even more than before. The beaches are not crowded, I guess this is what St Maarten was like 20 years ago, and the people so pleased to welcome us. We had the best meals ever, Thank you Emilio's restaurant, celebrating our friends birthday. The only down side, returning to a frigid NY!.
