We have stayed here 3 times over the past couple of years and have loved it each times. Staff is always helpful and friendly. They can provide information on what the locals like to do and where to go. Beautiful views from the villas and each has its own pool. And in the three different villas that we stayed in the pools were very private. Easy walk to the beach, which we did each early each morning to walk it. After breakfast we drove down with all our beach gear as we did not want to carry it. Bedrooms are large and comfortable. The bathrooms in the bedrooms don't have a stand up showers, but there is a separate bath room that does, which I preferred to use. Only draw back is kitchens were small and the main family room and kitchen was not air-conditioned (except for 2 villas). No real problem though with ceiling fans and breeze. And you can always sit out under the stars or jump in the pool if it get too hot inside. When we go back to St. Maartin this is where we will stay.

My husband and I stayed at the Green Cay Villas 5/5/05-5/9/05, and had a spectacular time! I spent MANY late nights on the Internet researching which island and hotel we should go to, and I would whole-heartedly recommend the Green Cay Villas. After driving all over the island (in a rented jeep, which was the best move for St. Martin), we felt that Orient Beach was the best place on the island to stay. We almost stayed at Le Petite Hotel, but are so glad we didn’t. It was right on the beach just outside the main strip in Grand Case, and it just isn't nearly as nice as Orient Beach. Plus, you don't have a private pool, which was AWESOME!

Green Cay Villas are 10 villas located up on a hill, and you walk down the path/street past numerous other villas to get to one of the most beautiful beaches imaginable...soft, white sand; turquoise warm clear water; all of the usual water sports, and plenty of comfortable chairs & umbrellas available for rent (two chairs & umbrella cost $15 for the day, but we were able to get them for $10 when we told them we were only going to use them for an hour or two). Plus there are tons of beach bars all along the beach, so a Mud Slide or Strawberry Colada is always easily accessible. There is some nudity on Orient Beach, which I wasn't accustomed to, but it really wasn't a big deal.

As for the villa we stayed at: We booked through a travel agent, who booked us a studio, which I mistakenly believed was a small villa--wrong! Not even close!! We were shown to our studio which was NOTHING like what I was expecting…no view, no pool. Fortunately, I went down to the office, and was able to pay to upgrade to a villa the following day (they almost didn't have one available, in which case I would have insisted on moving elsewhere). The staff was extremely accommodating and friendly (Bridgette was great).

The villa was exactly what you've heard from the other reviewers...very private, plenty of space, beautiful pool with decks and lounge chairs all around it, a deck overlooking the pool with a view of Caribbean-colored rooftops down to the ocean. Loved having a villa that had housekeeping and breakfast. It was such a pleasure to come out of the bedroom to fresh-brewed coffee, French pastries & bread, the morning paper (Miami Herald), and fresh-picked flowers~ and enjoy it in paradise! (Oh, but pack the mosquito spray for morning and dusk, or you can buy some at the local store. We made sure to keep the door to our bedroom closed w/ the AC on so we never had a problem w/ bugs at night.)

I do agree with the other reviewer about the initial signs of age in the villas. A couple of the bedrooms had some moisture damage in a couple of spots on the walls. Although the management should address this issue, it would never keep me from completely recommending Green Cay Villas.

We spent our mornings sight-seeing, afternoons at the beach, then went back to the villa for a dip in the pool and happy hour, then headed out to one of the amazing restaurants in the area. Sitting on the deck with that view with some munchies and a cocktail (I packed some munchies & was really glad I did), it was hard to drag ourselves away each night, but the restaurants are so wonderful I wanted to try as many as I could in the four nights we were there.

The best restaurants are in Grand Case (kind of a dingy town, but had some neat shops and food was unbelievable!), which was a 10 minute drive away. If you're not up for driving, you can walk down to a small variety of restaurants in Orient Beach (there are 5-10 to choose from). Le Cottage in Grand Case was my favorite. Also loved L'escapade. also in Grand Case--incredible service, delicious food, and our table was practically on the beach.

All in all, it was an amazing, romantic getaway. Every day we would say that our kids would have the greatest time here…we’ll bring them next time when they are a little older (they are 1, 3 and 5 now). Green Cay Villas was everything I had hoped it’d be.

We stayed at Green Cay Villas for 10 nights in late February - early March. Green Cay is a great location with many features. It is very convenient to Orient Beach, less than a 10 minute walk. The views are beautiful from the villas and the location is very private. There is a nice size pool at each villa, the service is fine, the grounds are well kept and a continental breakfast is served each day in your villa. We were two families sharing a 2 bedroom villa and it worked out great. My one issue is with the appearance of these villas for the cost. They appear to be starting to show their age a bit. But overall, I would stay there again.

This place was simply awesome!!! Well-maintained villa. It was very spacious and very private. We went there with friends and thought it was spectacular. Each morning breakfast was prepared by the staff so when you woke coffee, croissants and french bread awaited you on the terrace. The tables were set with beautiful linens outside and overlooked the Orient Bay. And, the pool, well, that was beautiful and maintained well. This is as close to paradise as one could get. If you plan to go with a group and want your own privacy too, this is the place to be!!

We traveled Feb 14-21, 2004. The villa was 3 large bedrooms 4 baths. Very large and comfortable. Private pool and deck. Every morning the maid arrived between 7 and 8. Made coffee, set the table with linens and china, fresh flowers wonderful bread, and pastry. Later in the day the entire villa was cleaned even the windows were washed. Plenty of fresh towels for bath and beach. Beach chairs and umbrellas were included with the villa. They arranged for a driver (Winston) who took us anywhere we wanted, and then was there to bring us back. Took the Lathuna for snorkle day-just great. Lunch provided and open bar. Food was excellent Sabatinos, LaVie en Rose great experience.
