For our annual girls getaway I chose St. Maarten and we were not disappointed. We stayed in Villa #6 which is located directed on the beach front. The two storey unit was perfect. On the first floor there was a powder room, a kitchen with all the necessities of home, a dining area and living room where you could sit... More

I am just finishing up three weeks at the Villas on Great Bay and this is the 5th time that I have stayed here. Jim and Gina are like family and they make you feel that way. The location is really good as it is far enough away from the boardwalk, that it allows for peace and quiet but close... More

Second year in a row at the Villas did not disappoint. Same villa (#5), same beach, same beautiful island! It's exactly as we remembered but this year we stayed 2 weeks (Mar 9 - 21) instead of 1 week...it's that great of a place. The folks who were staying at the other villas are friendly and make it one big... More

My wife and I stayed in Villa 9 Feb 11 thru 19. By far one of the most relaxing vacations I have had. We used the shop and drop grocery service (on the Villas on Great Bay website). That was extremely convenient, beers and breakfast food in the fridge from the get-go. Reasonable prices too. We started off the first... More
