“Best Value within walking distance of Phillipsburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2007

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at Great Bay Villas. The oceanfront villas are the best. Short walk to Phillipsburg via the brick road or the beach. Close to restaurants and the management are the best. Arranged a car rental both times at a wonderful price. Great view of the beach, Great Bay and the pool. Hope to go back for a whole month. 1 or 2 weeks isn't enough. Food, liquor prices are some of the best in the Carribean with an amazing selection. Shop at the Grand Marche for best selection. New airport is very effiicent complared to the old one. Fun beaches to visit and bargains on jewellery. Day trips galore and super scuba diving operation Scuba Fun at Dock Maarten.

  • Liked — Location, pool, convenience to shopping and restaurants and its a home away from home with friendly management
  • Disliked — No complaints
  • Stayed January 2007, travelled as a couple

Townhouse Villas are now named Villas on Great Bay. Wonderful place to stay. Twelve villas, manager uses one, all are two bedroom, two bath.
Great view of Great Bay Harbor from nine of them. Have stayed there three times and love the place. Have no qualms on staying on Front Street!
