We thoroughly enjoyed a week in Villa #1 over the Christmas holiday. The villa was as advertised ... clean, very nice decor, recently renovated, efficient air-conditioning, comfy beds, and facing the ocean. The owners were always quick to respond to any emailed queries prior to our stay. The supervisors, named Jim and Gina, were very helpful, no matter what the problem or question. The town of Philipsburg is a lot of fun to explore on foot, especially when the cruise ships are in. We rented a car and explored the rest of the island a bit. Lunch in any oceanside restaurant in Grand Case is particularly memorable. Also a visit to the beach by the airport is exciting when the big jets are taking off. We travel 2-3 times a year and try to go to different places rather than going back to the same place every year. In the Caribbean, we have previously visited Cuba, Jamaica, Mexico, Barbados, Bermuda, Bahamas, Puerto Rico, and Aruba. The Villa at St. Maarten is at the top of our list for the best accommodations that we have experienced in the Caribbean.
