One bedroom / bath studio with king size bed, satellite tv / internet, kitchenette, garden view, separate entrance and parking. You're welcome to enjoy the rest of Villa Ever Summer with my husband Juny and I, we'll share some islander folklore! The villa is designed so that your vacation can be as private or as friendly as you like.
Villa Ever Summer is a villa overlooking Orient Beach and the dotted islands, bays and mangrove of the St. Martin Reserve Naturelle. This is a view with no public access; it's only accessible from a few homes. Enjoy this ocean view in many hues of green and blue surrounded by the rolling hills of both Dutch and French sides, right nearby several magnificent beaches and restaurants, including one-of-a-kind Pinel island. If you like occasional company and want to get to know St. Maarten and the surrounding islands' most magical spots, those which take decades to discover, there is no better vacation than Ever Summer.
The villa is located in the 24/7 gated community at the very summit of the Vistas in Oyster Pond Estates. The hilltop breeze is constantly wafting through the house for an experience of luxurious oxygenation. Yes, Ever Summer offers many unique luxuries.
As an American living on a small Caribbean island, and married to a wonderful man from Statia, an even smaller island (he's my favorite Statian) we welcome friends from all over the world. As a decorator, Ever Summer is lovingly designed to be the ideal Caribbean vacation abode.
There is no formal meal plan because we have a very laid back lifestyle. If you're hungry you can take something from the fridge. Usually when guests like to hang out with us, we invite them for dinner one or twice during their stay. Sometimes we cook - sometimes they do, so we can get a taste of the food where they're from. It's all fun. Keep in mind your apt. has a little kitchenette, so convenience is taken care of.
Concerning the route to get here, I do offer detailed instructions to ensure you can find us.
Some of my guests asked me to recommend beaches and restaurants. With 36 beaches and over 400 restaurants, St. Maarten has plenty to choose from...
Pinel Island, Mullet Bay beach, Rouge Beach, Plum Bay, Karakter at Simpson Bay beach, Palm Beach at Orient Bay, Le Galion aka Baby Beach because of its calm water, Sunset Beach bar next to the airport has the low flying 747 jet blast tossing volunteers around, but it also has good music and beautiful sunsets.
Grocery store: Grand Marche at the roundabout next to Texaco.
Bamboo Bernie- Japanese Sushi at Maho beach resort. There's a nice lounge upstairs called the Buddha Lounge.
Bajatzu- really good steak house also at Maho beach resort
Loterie Farm at Peak Paradis
Grand Case- Le Pressoir, an upscale french dining experience. Also in Grand Case: Cottage
Marigot Marina - Cafe de Paris, good food, fun staff, nice marina setting.
There is sometimes traffic on the roads. It depends where on the island and what time of day. During rush hour in Simpson Bay and coming towards Philipsburg, there is some wait, but our new causeway has been effective in alleviating this. Sometimes a bridge is opening, and that causes delays as well. My advice to guests is to stay on a beach on whichever side you're on between 3:30 and 6:30 pm.
You need a car, a small compact will do fine.
Guests are welcome and encouraged to use the main kitchen with us, anytime after 9 am. Before 9 and late at night the guest kitchenette is available. In the main kitchen we have a beautiful mirror fridge and anyone can use it creatively, but there is no meal plan. We can improvise on grocery shopping, cooking, etc...
