My wife and I stayed in Villa #9 for a week for our honeymoon and had a blast. The villa was in great condition, had AC, a full kitchen, wifi, and direct beach access for a very reasonable price. The kitchen allowed us to save money by cooking a few of our own meals (local grocers are a great value).... More

Hello Ken, we are so sorry you did not enjoy your stay at the villas. Let me clarify some of your points: 1. Philipsburg and Front Street specifically aren't absolutely a "high crime area". In the last years no one of our guests suffered any safety issue in our neighbourhood, in addition we are a small community that is highly... More

My wife and I were lucky to be the first ones to stay in Villa #4 following a complete renovation. The owners did an incredible job with the updates. Both bedrooms now have full ensuites and the main level is completely open concept with all the modern amenities. Everything you could possibly need comes in the villa and all the... More

The villas are an amazing place to stay. The rooms were gorgeous, the whole place is fully stocked with any accessories and amenities you could ask for. There is a local market right across the street perfect for groceries. There is also plenty of food, shopping and entertainment within walking distance. The beach is fantastic. We will definitely return!

Had a great time again at the Villas on Great Bay (stayed July 6th-13th). Second time visitor. Stayed in Villa #4 this year and Villa #5 last year. Came back because of the great location, easy walk to downtown Philipsburg shops, markets, and restaurants. Just far enough down the beach to keep the beach in front of the villas nearly... More

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... More

From our first email interactions it was clear that this would be a friendly and "fun"villa destination. Even so, it exceeded our expectations. We loved the privacy, but yet plenty of restaurants, bars, markets,and shopping was a brief walk in any direction.The villa is well equipped, and the outside grill was clean and ready to use. Comfortable beds,closet space,and dining... More

Wonderful place and friendly staff! Rooms were right on the beach and walking distance to shops and restaurants. Would highly recommend! Not a cookie cutter hotel, very charming fun place to stay! I would also recommend eating at honky tonk! It was our favorite meal!
