What can we say other than we loved staying at your beautiful Oyster Pearl Villa! You have a magnificent house and view. You have absolutely thought of everything to make your guests feel at home. This was our first trip to St Maarten, and we loved it! We cant wait to return.

We enjoyed meeting you and Fred and Blackie and Moonbeam came too! Thanks to Fred for meeting us at the airport - it was a big help!
The “Private Beach” outside your Villa was awesome, as was the pool right outside our door! We cannot tell you enough how thrilled we were to stay here and how much we felt at home and cant wait to come back to your little piece of paradise!

Thanks to You and Fred for being the perfect hosts.

This has been a wonderful experience for all of us. Some new to the Island, some not. The days got better as we went. The Villa was a perfect match for us. Close to the water, nice tropical breeze, able to listen to the waves, not to mention perfect accommodations.
The beaches were all different and beautiful. The shopping varied and reasonable. The sailing trip was more than expected and will always be remembered. We will be back to the Island and hopefully back to your beautiful villa. 

Ladies week

20 March 2011

What can I say? You have these 7 women a week of fun. comfort, relaxation, sun, shopping, a gorgeous view, fun a stunning Vill and a full Moon! We found your Turkish Music and listened to those old songs with fondness - even Kelly danced one night! Each day was more adventurous than the previous one. Will tell everybody about this paradise!

Lots of entertainment at Mardi Gras on Tuesday evening, watching the sunsets on the beach in Grand case, the delicious French dinners at “ Auberge Gourmande “.
We took hundreds of pictures to relive our memories.
Thank you very much and Fred for his help.

What a Fantastic Place

13 February 2011

Five of us gathered here to celebrate Sarah’s 40’th. What a fantastic place, view and relaxing time.we had. We drank and had a great time all over the Island and here at the Villa. We recommend the zip lining at Lotterie Farm. It was exhilarating and the food was to die for. We actually went back just for lunch the next day. Just down the road is Captain Allans snorkelling. It was fun and Allan and his wife Colleen were very accommodating people. Check out Mardi Gras Tuesdays in Grand Case. A lot of fun and cold Presidente’s. All the best to Fred. He is the eyes and ears of the Villa and repair man extraordinary . Thank you very much for your lovely home. It was everything that we saw and endless hours of relaxation and sun shine. We hope to be back some day, next time we will bring the kids!

P.S. There are 2 cats that visit. Don’t forget to feed them for us who ever comes next.

What an amazing vacation. This beach house is the most wonderful place on earth! We had a blast. Visited the Butterfly Farm twice, snorkeled with Fanceia down by Buzbys and picked out my own lobster for lunch! Weather was gorgeous all week- a few afternoon showers cooled us off and the cool breeze kept us chilled at the pool. Thank you for opening your home! This was the best family vacation we have we’ve ever had! We plan to make it an annual vacation!

What a very special place! Michael and I felt so at home, but all of the anxiety and worries were left in New York and we were immediately able to immerse ourselves in the beautiful view, the lulling waves, and relax relax relax.... We didn’t do much - a trip to Orient Beach one day, dinner at different locations at night [loved the Big Fish] and partied with Natalie at the Aloha Bar one night, but that was fine with us. We couldn’t have had a more peaceful experience. Ellen and Flow at the Dingy Dock were very gracious and fred, as always, very helpful and accommodating. Thank you for a wonderful vacation.

Arrived in Darkness did a bit of gambling and awoke to a GLORIOUS view!! Sunday was spent @ The Westin Bar pool with Jean - Claud hooking us up. Monday was a sailing trip with Captain Neil on the Celine - an AMAZING day! Finished up with a relaxing Dinner at Daniels. Tuesday brought more Westin Pool time and a home cooked pork dinner. Wednesday was lunch at Orient Beach {tourist central} and massages by Peter = HEAVENLY! Dinner was home cooked flank steak. Thursday was a day trip to Friars Beach {Bay} and Happy Bay = a must see! Dinner in Grande Case at L’escapade - delicious! So, so, so sad to leave, but we shall return!

David, Your Home was very comfortable. It was as advertised! great amenities. The pool is perfect, and the walk to the beach was an adventure. The view from the house is incredible. St Maarten is now my favourite island in the Caribbean. So many things to do and see: Orient Beach - European beach experience

Snorkelling trip to Anguilla - best of all!
Philipsburg - Funky and cool shopping
Grande Case - Quaint
Lottery Farm - Beautiful/ fly zone- great experience. Aquarium at Captain Oliver's restaurant.

We had a lot of good meals but Mr Buzbys [Daniels] was our best experience.
Our kids, friends and adults all enjoyed the St Maarten experience. We plan to come back!

I am in the party with Todd Sterling and family. I am Todds Mother. It has been fabulous swimming and ‘funning’ with my two sons and their kids. Your house is all that vacationers could ask. Love the upscale amenities in Kitchen and baths. The most perfect thing is that all bedrooms have their own baths!! How cool is that!! Our friends that stayed at Oyster Bay want to stay here next summer... They’ll be calling you. I am sorry we didn’t get to meet you, but Fred was so wonderful to us. Again please know how much we enjoyed our stay. We’ll be back!!

David, We had such a wonderful time !!
Your home was so beautiful and the tiles were magnificent. Fred was so gracious and helpful, we have adopted him into our family. we talked, drank, ate great food. [not a bad meal on the Island], swam and slept. It was a perfect vacation. I am just sorry we couldnt stay longer, but we will be back next year. Cheers!
P.S. The hotel roof disappeared after 3 days!

Its our best Holiday to Date

The Villa is beautiful and the views just amazing. To wake up each morning to the sound of the waves and a walk on the beach is our idea of Heaven. The kids loved the pool and played with the body boards in the surf. The owner answered all our questions promptly and dealt with us in a friendly but professional manner. Fred, who manages the Villa, met us at the airport and was on hand to help us. Dawn Beach is quiet , no clubs or late night bars, just rest and relaxation. The Westin Hotel has an excellent restaurant that we walked to along the beach. There is also Daniels and Daniels Pizza that gets a big thumbs up from the kids! And Big Fish. We plan to return very soon.

Great Property

My family stayed at this property from Jan. 30th, 2010 to Feb. 13th, 2010. We had a great time! The property and house is fantastic. We have young children - they loved the pool. Also, the very short walk down to the private beach was perfect for the kids. The snorkelling out in front of the house is great! This is an A+ property with A+ owners. Everything from payment to meeting us at the airport was first rate. Definitely recommend this property for anyone - especially families. We will come back soon.
