Long Island, New...
posts: 4
reviews: 5

I am considering renting a villa in February. I'll be travelling with my husband (a golfer) and two teenaged girls (16 & 17). I've never been to St. Martin/St. Maarten before. From what I've researched, it looks like a great island for beaches, shopping, & dining.

I'd love to hear feedback/advice on villa rentals and which side of the island is best.

I'm inclined to stay on the French side and traveling by rental car to the Dutch side for their various activities.

Thank you.

1. Re: Villas

I actually think you may be better off on the Dutch side...and travel by car to the French side...The French beaches are great but moneywise and activities the Dutch side can't be beat...If I can be of any help e-mail me at Carol RNCT@aol.com...am very familiar with St. Maarten and places to stay..and I live across the sound in Milford, CT !!!!
