After a very busy year for our business, we needed a restful holiday. Villas on Great Bay looked good but little did we know. It was fantastic!! Newly renovated, the villa was wonderful in every way. From the moment you walked into the front garden, you couldn't help but be relaxed and curious. There is an outside shower to wash... More

We have been on many many cruises over the past 18 years, only spending 1 day in port at St. Maarten at a time. I think we have visited almost every island in the Caribbean, but St. Maarten has always been our favorite. This year, we decided to vacation at The Villa's on Great Bay ! From the moment we...

This was our first stay at the Villas, but we already booked for next year. We were met by the property manger (Jim) when we arrived and it was perfect from that point until we left. The Villas are clean, comfortable, spacious, and everything works (which is not always the case in the Caribbean). The views of the ships at... More

For the second consecutive year we stayed for one week in Villa#2. Having 2 complete baths upstairs and a half bath downstairs made our stay with another couple very comfortable.

If you are an ocean lover like us, you will be thrilled to sit and listen to it every night from your private balcany. Easy to access Grocery Stores, variety of Restaurants, Tours.

We spent a lot of time travelling the island - could not imagine a better place to stay. We stayed in Unit #1, which for our family was the best in the complex - it was at the far end, the most private as no one other than those staying there have a reason to be at that end -... More
