We had a group of 5 stay at Villa #9 July 13th - 19th and everything was perfect. The villas are located a short walk from the heart of Philipsburg...close enough to walk to everything but far enough away that the beach isn't crowded even when there are cruise ships in port. The villa was very clean with comfortable beds and well stocked with everything we needed. The deck right out on the beach is the perfect addition to the villa...we spent lots of time there just hanging out. The only negative is that there is some construction going on down the beach. It isn't noisy, but the city has allowed cars to use the beach to get to and from the site so occasionally there are cars driving right by the deck. Jim was very nice and helpful and was always around whenever we needed anything and gave us the name (James!) of a wonderful taxi driver that we used the whole time we were there. We will definitely be visiting again and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay in St. Maarten!
