Guana Bay

Guana Bay is blessed with a long, wide beach with excellent sand and great views towards neighboring St. Barth. Although only a short distance from Philipsburg, the beach is little known and therefore very quiet. It faces the Atlantic Ocean, same side as Orient Bay, but without the beach bars and restaurants. At times, some stronger surf can challenge less experienced swimmers. More beach impressions in our beach section!

Guana Beach has only very limited beach facilities, only one bar/restaurant, no groceries. Although situated off the beaten tourist path, Villa Star is at a very short drive from main attractions and the supermarkets of Philipsburg have all you wish.

Beautiful view of Guana Bay, St. Maarten
Marlene, the owner, went above and beyond to help us have an enjoyable stay. She sent us a 14-page package of information, with tips and recommendations, on places to eat and things to see which really added so much to our vacation. We communicated several times before actually arriving at the villa. The pool and grounds were well cared for and everyone we met was very friendly. We enjoyed using the pool very much and it was right outside our villa. We enjoyed eating breakfast and several dinners out on the deck which had a beautiful view of the bay and nearby islands. The kitchen was well-equipped and we used the BBQ often. The whole house was clean and very nicely decorated. There are 2 bathrooms on the main floor so the people that slept upstairs in the second bedroom had to come downstairs at night to use the bathroom. (That is the way the whole complex was built). We were happy to have wifi right in the Villa. Guana Bay was beautiful to look at and we walked along the beach. There were many other beaches that we were able to drive to and go swimming. The stars were great to view at night. I know why they named it Villa Star! We did see some spectacular sunrises too. Marcella, the housekeeper, did an excellent job. She greeted us when we first arrived and showed us all around the Villa. She came in everyday to clean, make the beds, and run the dishwasher. (We were not supposed to run the dishwasher because it was "temperamental"). There was no washer or dryer that we could use, but we could pay $20 a load to have the housekeeper do it for us. We did have a problem with lots of ants in the kitchen daily even though we put food away in the refrigerator and loaded our used dishes into the dishwasher. We sprayed Raid on the floor and bleach on the countertops to kill them . Marcella cleaned up the dead ants everyday. (I think this is a common problem there at certain times of the year just because it is an island and right near the water). All in all we had a delightful vacation! Thanks Marlene!

Sweet place on a fabulous island
Thank you Marlene for a wonderful holiday adventure. The Villa Star was the perfect size for our group of three. The house had everything we needed. Marlene was quick to respond from the initial reservation till after the vacation. The house had fantastic views of the ocean and was also steps away from a private beach that probably has the best waves on the island. It is centrally located for easy access to the entire island. While we did not spend much time at the villa the complex had a nice pool also with great views and many nice neighbors. Look forward to returning as there is so much to do one can't possibly do it in one go!

Loved our stay
We really loved our stay at the villa! It was perfect for us and our children. We really liked the cozyness and at the same time the luxury and convenience of the villa and the complex with the nice pool for our children. Marcella was really helpfull. The view on the ocean and St. Barth is beautifull. Thanks for all the tips, we really explored the island with its many beaches, nice places and restaurants. We would definitely love to come back one day.

The best 3 weeks!
We rented Villa Star for 3 weeks and couldn't have asked for more luxury or relaxation. The Villa was immaculate and the items provided in the unit were exactly what we used. We enjoyed being just steps to the sea and near the pool as well. The suggestions you made for dining and excursions were spot on and we met great people along the way. We didn't have any issues other than our plane was delayed upon departure... but other than that, it was 3 weeks of BLISS! How soon can we book again? Am messaging now to check availability before year end. Would love to visit over the holidays!

EXACTLY WHAT WE NEEDED! THANK YOU!
Marlene and Al's Villa Star was exactly what we needed- the comfort and luxury of the villa, the proximity to the beach, we lacked for nothing! We loved being so close to the ocean and feel the ocean breezes in the villa. Your choice of decor was perfect for our home away from home. We were so comfortable in the villa. We did call your staff as needed and they were so attentive and meet all our requests. We didn't want to leave! We could have used one week solid just to enjoy the villa and another to venture out during the day... we did however venture out and visit several of the restaurants and places of interest that you suggested in the welcome packet you sent us prior to our trip. A+ holiday for us! We hope to get back before year end!

RELAXING, SIMPLY DIVINE!
My husband and I just came back from the BEST vacation of our lives! We loved everything about it.... most of all the luxury, privacy and sheer beauty of both Villa Star and the surrounding area. Just steps from the sea... we had everything at our fingertips. We took advantage of many of the suggestions the owners, Marlene & Al, had provided and we delighted in the most wonderful meals and met such lovely people around the island. We are booking our next visit! It can not come fast enough!

Beautiful apartment
We stayed at this apartment for two weeks during Christmas and New Year's Eve. The apartment is in a complex that is well kept with manicured lawns and everyday care of the swimming pool and private security.. We were a party of 2 adults and 2 children ( 6 and 8). We loved to be able to go to the beach right next to the complex and then be able to finish with a good swimming in the pool. I would strongly recommend to rent a car as this would allow the renter to shop for any groceries as the walking around the neighbourhood is quite steep and not quite right next to a main road as it is precisely next to the shore. The beds are so comfortable with very comfy pillows. We had a lady cleaner coming in everyday and we usually went down early to the beach, then the pool and out of the apartment by 10:00 am so that this would allow her to clean without people in the property. She left the apartment spotless and she pointed out all the different hints we needed to know about the property. It is a delightful place. We would strongly recommend it to other people.

Ideal Honeymoon Villa
We travel quite a lot and use VRBO extensively. For this trip, we wanted amazing, romantic views, and a secluded quiet location. Villa Star and its owners delivered perfectly. Booking was easy, information was detailed, prices were excellent, and the villa was exactly as pictured and described. Very romantic location and very quiet. All in all, the perfect villa in the perfect location.

Villa Star
The Villa was clean & well maintained; the photos were very accurate of the Villa's appearance & amenities; the weather was great, the people of St. Maarten were pleasant & helpful. The only area of concern was the traffic which was heavy, the roads which were narrow & in poor condition and the lack of street signs - but once you become familiar with the island, traveling becomes easier. Driving at night is an adventure. The restaurants are on the expensive side but the food was excellent. Give yourself plenty of time to get to the airport and process through security when returning. We checked our luggage at the airport before returning our rental car and planned to get some lunch before returning to the airport but checking our luggage took so long we had to return the rental car and head directly back to the airport.

Great for Young Families
We spent a week here in March, 2013. It worked out very well for us - we have 2 young children (6 and 4), and the apartment is ideal for a family our size. It was very quiet, and the kids loved the pool (which we had almost to ourselves). We rented a car (as everyone really should), and explored the entire island and its many beautiful beaches daily. We enjoyed having the east access to nearby Phillipsburg, as there are several good restaurants there. All in all, we'd recommend this trip/location/villa to anyone.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU WHAT A WONDERFUL VACATION!
MARLENE, You out-do yourself! Thank you for the most wonderful stay at Villa Star! It was EXACTLY what I needed! Your villa is so beautiful and relaxing! You provided everything I needed and some! I love the location and it is just as you describe, just steps to the sea! I appreciate the tips you gave me on local places to go and things to see. I can not wait to return!
