Trip canceled due to Covid-19!
Unable to check N/A as we were unable to enjoy this vacation as Covid-19 arrived. Celine has been very accommodating and flexible and was willing to transfer our reservation to March 2021. Looking forward to another try!!
Peggy, thank you for your review! Being flexible with our all our guests and letting you reschedule was of course the least we could. At Villa Tamarind, we always look out for guests and we look so much forward to hosting you in 2021!
Outstanding Family Trip
Our group of 4 adults and 4 kids (ages 8-12) spent an incredible week in St Maarten in mid March. We loved everything about the villa - the view was breathtaking, the indoor and outdoor amenities exceeded all of our expectations. It was quiet, private and we felt extremely safe in the Upper Prince’s Quarter neighborhood. We rented a car (which is required given the location is at least 10 mins away from the nearest restaurants/groceries) and quickly adapted to driving the island roads. We have travelled to several Caribbean islands and St Maarten/St Martin is by far the most welcoming, comfortable and safe island that we have visited.
Celine and her local property managers were extremely responsive and offered many fantastic suggestions of places to visit/dine on the island. We enjoyed exploring but also enjoyed staying put at the villa to lounge by the pool and explore the local beach. As the COVID-19 crisis started to escalate globally, Celine reached out repeatedly to check in and ensure we were able to get home. We are extremely grateful for her concern and support at this unprecedented time.
I would highly recommend this villa and the island of St Maarten to all travelers - gorgeous beaches, delicious food, modern conveniences, lovely people.
Thank you for sharing your slice of paradise with us Celine and family!
SPECTACULAR Tamarind Villa in Sint Maarten!!!! Celine is an AMAZING host!!
This was our first time in St Maarten (family of 6).
Celine and her villa EXCEEDED our expectations.
The house is located in a beautiful, gated community that sits on a small hill. The neighbourhood is very quiet. The gate guards are very friendly. The path to the villa is lined by beautiful flowers and trees, and many beautiful houses.
The villa itself is HUGE & GORGEOUS. There are 4 very spacious bedrooms: 1 master BR on one side of the villa; 2 separate BRs on the other side; and 1 separate BR off the side of the villa. Each of the BRs has its own LARGE full bathroom, and each has air conditioning.
The living room is huge, and fully equipped for entertainment (TV, netflix, wifi, Alexa sound system). The sectional couch was huge: we could enjoy the whole family sitting together (with each person having their own space).
The kitchen and pantry is fully equipped+++.
The views from the villa are BREATHTAKING. You can see the sun rise and set. The ocean is calming, with soothing sounds of the distant waves.
The infinity pool is spectacular. Just cool enough during the day to be refreshing without being cold, and warmed up in the afternoon by the sun. The deck is equipped with everything you could possibly need: Lounge chairs so that you can bask in the sun at any time; a large dining table in the sun; and another large dining table that is covered.
Celine is an AMAZING host. Her team welcomed us at the airport, brought us to the car rental place to get our van, and accompanied us to the villa.
In the LARGE walk-in pantry, Celine has a board organized with many of the worthwhile places to visit: Top 5 beaches; Top 5 places for Lunch; Top 5 places for dinner; etc. There is also a homemade book with details on the house and the surrounding areas. And, Celine is VERY responsive by email (she responds almost as soon as you hit "send".... very attentive to whatever questions you may have!).
The villa has 2 private parking spots, so no worries if you rent a vehicle. There is also an outdoor "living room" space, next to an elegant old-style oven (and a smoker, and a BBQ). Admittedly, we did not spend very much time there, because we were too enamored with the deck area, with the constant warm, soothing, soft tropical winds blowing, which is very relaxing.
The beaches are great. Our favorite was Orient Bay.
Grand Case has excellent restaurants.
The villa is INCREDIBLE!! Our family LOVED it! Celine is a GREAT host. VERY HAPPY we chose it. RELAXING
Don, thank you for the amazing review! We work hard to provide our guests with an experience that exceeds their expectations and we're glad we could deliver such a result for you! We would love to welcome you back.
Feb 2020 family vacation
Villa Tamarind was great. The house was accurately depicted and we enjoyed that each bedroom had it’s own bathroom. The separate suite off the pool area was helpful for our friend traveling with us didn’t mind being away from our kids who woke up so early each morning! House was very well stocked and Celine had fantastic communication throughout the rental process and while we were there. We were greeted at the airport by one of Celine’s staff who was very friendly and escorted us to car rental place and then to the house so we wouldnt get lost. We had placed an order for food with a delivery service Celine recommended which made arriving to the house easy as we had snacks and things to prepare a first dinner and breakfast. The supermarkets on the island are great and convenient so don’t spend too much on the delivery service - prices are better at the supermarket directly. When we arrived Celine had provided some welcome beers and rum which was a welcome touch! The view is lovely and renting a car is crucial so you can navigate to the different beaches on the island. Celine’s recommendations were spot on. The key for us was finding beaches that didn’t have the cruise ship folks and we definitely found them. Note that the French side isn’t shy about going topless and some (typically older folks) nude on the beach. But that added to the local flavor. Food on the island is expensive but very tasty. Great beach side restaurants. Laid back atmosphere everywhere we went. Villa Tamarind is well located with access to any point you wish to visit on the island. Usually we reached the beaches within 30-45 minutes depending on traffic any way we drove.
Alexandra, thank you for the great review! We're glad you had such a wonderful vacation with your family and enjoyed Villa Tamarind thoroughly. We look forward to having you back!
We loved Villa Tamarind for our 10 day vacation! The most amazing views we have ever experienced on any vacation...EVER! 3 of the 4 bedrooms open up to the pool deck which gazed out to St. Barths, and mountainous views of St. Maarten and it’s coastline. The pool itself was the perfect refreshing escape from the warm temps we had and the perfect depth for our 3 children, 8, 6, and 3 to enjoy. The rooms each had their own AC units except the main living area, which could be warm at times, but had plenty of ceiling fans to circulate the air. One of the units failed and needed to be replaced, which was done immediately and without annoyance, which is a testament to Celine, Bogdon, and Marko, our property management team. They made us feel welcome from the minute we stepped off our plane to the very last day! They offered a Caribbean BBQ for an additional cost, that was well worth the evening off of cooking for everyone. The array of grills and the wood fire pizza oven made for some exceptional dinners that my friends and I were able to prepare from local seafood and produce that was purchased from a couple of the grocery stores 15-25 minutes away.
Our children loved walking around in the evenings as we prepared our dinners, to take in the many hermit crabs and small lizards that scurry around at that time.
There were only a couple minor discrepancies from the listing that we found once we arrived and had time to explore from our villa. There is a small beach that can be traveled to that is near the villa. But none within walking distance for people with kids and beach accessories, or for people not wanting to walk for more than 45 minutes to a rocky beach. It’s best to just drive 20-30 minutes to Oyster, Orient Beach, or Mullet Bay where you will find amazing beaches, water sports, and restaurants. Things are fairly pricey, and expect to pay for beach chairs and umbrellas that fetch a cost on average of $30 for 2 chairs and an umbrella.
Overall, we didn’t mind the driving to different beach locations as we were able to see the amazing sights, local towns, and what St. Maarten had to offer. We were amazed by the wonderful accommodations and would recommend this tranquil villa to anyone looking for the most amazing and stunning views on the island! Thanks again to Celine, Bogdon, and Marko for a truly blessed experience for our family and friends!
Thanks for the awesome review, Ian! We're glad you thoroughly enjoyed the house and the gorgeous views with your family and friends! It was a pleasure hosting you.
I'm afraid you might have missed Gibbs Bay, which is a small sandy beach, and can be reached within 10/15 minutes (the walk back will take you c. 20 minutes as it is uphill!). It's a small beach with a reef (best in settled weather), and devoid of any facilities, but perfect for a relaxing early morning walk and chill with the family.
We look forward to welcoming you back next year!
Onze woning is gelegen in de Tamarind Hill Estates, dicht bij Dawn Beach Estates en Oyster Pond. Het ligt op een heuvel en biedt een fantastisch uitzicht op de Caribische Zee en Saint Barts in de verte.
