Our first stay at the villas (#5) were the result of the TA reviews and they were right on the mark! The villas are well appointed, convenient to the boardwalk/shopping/cruise ship docks but yet isolated enough to enjoy piece and quiet. This is the type of vacation location where you can do anything and everything you want when it comes to water sports (parasailing, jet skis, snorkeling, boat tours, etc. are right on the Great Bay beaches) or do nothing at all but lounge around. The two story, two bedroom villa was spacious and had all the comforts of home. From the well stocked kitchen to the flat screen TV's to the sleep number king sized beds, it was everything I was looking for in a relaxing vacation. The managers, Jim and Gina, were a pleasure in every respect...helpful, insightful, informative and made us and everyone else there feel like part of their large extended "family". The view is like candy for the eyes. You wake up every morning and look forward to seeing the amazing Great Bay views...better than a postcard. The people of St Maarten are extremely courteous and our regular taxi driver/new best friend, "Uncle" James, was kind, genuine and a pleasure to learn from when it came to his island knowledge. We are looking forward to making these villas our island destination year after year. It would be a mistake not to visit the Villas on Great Bay at least once just to see why this location is a #1 rated destination on St Maarten.
