Corinne’s Two Bedroom Marina Townhome
Picture this – Returning from a lazy day on the silky sands of Dawn Beach (a few steps right across the street) you anticipate relaxing on one of the two private decks of your luxurious duplex Town Home, cool drink in hand, a beautiful view of gently rocking yachts in the harbor, and suddenly you see pelicans diving for their dinner. This spectacular view renders my new property in the Coral Beach Club a heavenly place to rejuvenate, revitalize and refresh yourself. [/accordion]
Tastefully and luxuriously appointed, my 1800 square foot, fully air-conditioned home offers it all – privacy, comfort, lovely water views, daily maid service, concierge service, private gym and garage. Cool travertine stone floors throughout and the 9 ½’ ceilings provide a gracious feel. Town Home features large living room, dining area, fully equipped kitchen, two outdoor decks, 2 upstairs master bedroom suites with full baths plus powder room on the lower floor. In addition, there is a small office complete with desk, printer and office supplies. Wifi throughout the home.
There are four excellent restaurants within a minutes walk and the marina is at your doorstep if you wish to book a boat excursion. Just bring your clothes and personal items because everything you need is here – robes, bath necessities, beach towels, cooler, etc.
My guests have special privileges at the Oyster Bay Hotel where they can use all their facilities and services: restaurants, gym, spa and pool with a 20% discount.
When you return at the end of your day, the spacious living room invites you to lounge in plush designer furniture while you view 55″ LCD TV or watch movies on blue ray DVD player. For your listening pleasure there is IPod dock with disc player complete with varied selections of music. If you move out onto the comfortably furnished deck, there is a portable IPod player to take with you. Grab the ice bucket, chill down your wine or whip up a pina colada in the blender and choose glassware from the large selection in the bar.
Dining area boasts large table for 6 with all necessary dinnerware, glassware, flatware and serving dishes.
As you ascend the stone staircase to the second floor you will be mesmerized by the huge glass floor to ceiling window framing the waterfront. At the top of the stairs, for your convenience there is a small refrigerator, 1-cup Cuisinart coffee maker, cups and accessories so when you awake in the morning, you need not descend the stairs to the kitchen. Pour your coffee and return to bed where you can enjoy the view. Or, relax on the outdoor deck and watch the bird life.
The home features two beautifully furnished master bedroom suites each containing 800 thread count bedding, plush Euro topped mattress, black out curtains, IPod Dock, televisions, DVD players, large closets and en suite baths.
Do you like to BBQ? If so, you will enjoy my new stainless grill and accessories on the deck. An outdoor table for 4 awaits your feast and my home is stocked with lovely tableware, place mats, napkins, dinnerware, etc.
If you enjoy cooking, the fully equipped and spacious kitchen offers most anything you require to prepare a gourmet meal or just a simple salad and sandwich. In addition to the cookware and all equipment, I provide a Cuisinart grind and brew coffee machine, electric teapot, waffle maker, panini maker, blender, toaster oven, microwave and serving platters. There is also a 32-bottle wine cooler.
Cooking on vacation not your thing? St. Martin is known for fine dining especially on the French side in Grand Case. Want to stay close by? Conveniently situated right outside the home are three excellent restaurants: Big Fish, Daniels, and Canoa. Two minutes by car takes you to the Westin Hotel and their Aura Steak House is highly recommend. And across the Marina, Captain Olivers serves lunch and dinner while you watch the yachts coming and going.
Recommended as a romantic get-a-way, couples traveling together, and families. Corinne’s Town Home is suitable for everyone looking to have the finest accommodations in St. Martin while they explore the island.

Corinne’s Marina Townhome Reviews
Beautiful property directly on the beach
Guest: Dillon W.
Date of Stay: May 24, 2017
Corinne’s was an amazing place to stay to relax with friends. Everything and anything we needed was provided and made our stay so enjoyable. The property was beautiful and so close to the beach and many delicious restaurants. During our trip, Corinne helped set us up for a catamaran cruise around the islands and snorkeling off nearby reefs. She also helped us set up reservations at a restaurant on an island offshore. There is no experience like that anywhere else. I would 100% recommend this property to anyone who was looking for the perfect vacation getaway. We will certainly be coming back time and time again!
Perfect Family Vacation
Guest: Viviane D.
Date of Stay: Mar 1, 2017
We just spent 10 days at Corrine’s Townhouse and it was absolutely perfect! We’re a family of 5 and there was plenty of room for us to spread out and enjoy the comforts of home in the beauty of the Caribbean. The townhouse is beautifully furnished and has all the amenities you would need and more. The location is ideal. You’re just a stroll away to stunning Dawn Beach and wonderful restaurants but being by the marina, it is very private and quiet. We loved starting our day with fresh croissants from the grocery store or Johnny Cakes from Busby’s. Corinne was quick to answer all our questions and the Concierge and Housekeeping did an excellent job taking care of us. We will definitely return. Thank you Corinne for sharing your beautiful home with us.
Absolutely WONDERFUL AND PERFECT!

I am very happy to write this review regarding our family vacation that we took over the Thanksgiving Holiday Week (November 2015). Our family resides in Iowa, and we LOVE the Caribbean! (A lot!) St. Martin is our 5th Caribbean Island to visit. Nine months prior to our vacation taking place, I was on the VRBO.com website looking at options of homes to rent, and the picture of Corinne’s Three Bedroom Beachfront Villa on the VRBO website just really caught my eye. I immediately contacted the owners, Corinne and Richard Margulies, and inquired on whether their rental property would be available the week of Thanksgiving. Corinne replied to me immediately, using her personal email account to contact me. I knew right away that Corinne was a very kind person; and was so energetic about the Island of St. Martin, and acted very excited that I showed interest in renting her and her husband’s Beachfront Villa. After my husband and I reviewed all of the details, and looked at the beautiful photos on Corinne’s Caribbean Luxury Homes website, we did lock in our reservation within about five days of my first contact with Corinne. We knew this would be perfect for our family! As a perk to Corinne’s guests, Corinne and her husband kindly put an attractive sum of money towards the purchase of food and beverages for their home. There is a really neat Shop-N-Drop Grocery store in St. Martin, where a couple of gals own this business where those who are vacationing in St. Martin, they offer a service where they will come to the home that you are renting, and they will deliver food and beverages to your fridge and cupboards. It is the neatest thing, ever! You go on their website and you order what groceries and beverages you would like, and the day before you fly into St. Martin, they deliver the goods to the home you are renting! Corinne is so sincere and wants your first impression and your first evening to be perfect, and this is a “perk” that she provides to her guests. She wants you to enter her front door of her home; grab a beverage from the fridge that Shop-N-Drop delivered to the home, and jump right into her pool and start your vacation off RIGHT!! So basically Corinne and Richard paid for our food and beverages to get us through the first two or three days. Not every “renter” would do such. When the concierge did unlock the front door to Corinne and Richard’s home, our mouths just about dropped to the floor! Instantly IN LOVE!!!
You will absolutely love it!

We stayed in Villa Corinne for my 50th birthday in 2011 and returned to her 2 BR townhome on the marina this May. It was equally done. Both amazing rentals and we would not rent anywhere else in St. Martin. The homes are luxurious, everything you need is provided, the location is perfect, the restaurants within walking distance are all delicious, the activities on the water will fully occupy your days…what else could you want? Corinne is a gem and she has made her homes very accessible to others who want to enjoy the Caribbean lifestyle in style! We will be back for a third visit…and next time we will stay longer. We were NOT ready to leave after a week!!

Corinne’s town house exceeded all expectations! The town house was incredibly clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. The deck that over looked the harbor is the perfect place to quietly read a book or have a bbq dinner. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and the washer/dryer makes it easy to pack light! A beautiful new pool is located steps away with comfortable lounge chairs and tables. The town house is within walking distance from the beach as well as many lovely restaurants and bars. The staff is very kind, helpful and professional and I always felt safe. I would definitely recommend this town house and would love to come back someday 🙂
Our response: Thank you Megan for sharing your experience with future travelers. I am so pleased that you thoroughly enjoyed your visit in my home and it exceeded your expectations. That is always music to my ears. Please return again soon. Corinne Margulies
Another Wonderful Vacation

Date of Stay: 03/30/2014
This was our third time at Corinne Townhouse and we again truly enjoyed ourselves. We were with my in-laws and they enjoyed the proximity of the beach and restaurants. it was great to be able to just read a book on the deck on by the new pool. It was also fun to be able to see Canada beat Sweden for the Gold medal at Hockey, while enjoying the great weather.
We recommend highly Corinne Townhouse.
An amazing Stay on an amazing Island!

Corrine’s Townhouse at the Coral Beach Club will give you everything you want on an island getaway. The townhouse itself is very nice. It has top-notch amenities, great views, and is spacious. You can leave the back doors open and let the breeze flow through the house. Corrine’s townhouse is only seconds away from Dawn beach, a very quiet and pleasant beach, which is home to Mr. Busby’s and Beau Beau’s that serve food all day. Corrine’s townhouse has multiple nice restaurants in walking distance such as Big Fish, Canoa, and Mr. Busby’s. The staff at the Coral Beach Club come every day and tidy up the house including doing laundry so when you come home from the beach it is as though you are just arriving! Overall, this was an amazing vacation and I would go back today if I go.

Third time is the charm. Actually, all three years that I spent in this townhouse have been magnificent. For three years, a group of my best friends travel to this exact town house for a week to escape NY and the tri-state area. We would never stay anywhere else, that would be crazy because we have everything we can dream of right there…beautiful, newly-built, private infinity pool. A gorgeous non-crowded beach, 5 star restaurants in walking distance, a large/safe casino less than a mile away and ample activities also walking distance. The Townhouse’s staff could not be more helpful and available. They were able to answer each and every question we threw at them. You’d be silly not to stay at this wonderful townhouse paradise.
Immaculate town home in excellent area of St. Maarten
Guest: Chris, Toronto
Date of Stay: 02/20/2014
Corinne’s town home is exactly as described – immaculate, bright and beautifully decorated. Steps from three excellent restaurants and Dawn beach, one of the nicest beaches on the island. Every detail was taken care of, right down to welcoming bottle of wine and towels for the beach. We’ve stayed at this property twice now, and look forward to visiting again!
Absolutely Perfect Location!
Guest: Paula B (Halifax, NS)
Date of Stay: 05/15/2013
We stayed at Corinne’s Town Home from April 18th to April 26th, 2013. It was nothing short of the perfect vacation spot. The actual town home is spacious and very well decorated, she didn’t forget a thing! It was inviting, comfortable, classy, stylish, quiet, safe, very clean, etc… I can’t say enough about it, really. Plus, the staff at The Coral Beach Club were nothing short of tremendous… from the airport pick up, checking in, the 10 day stay, and departure process, they were very helpful in every way! Super nice people!
As for the physical location, we thought it was perfect! Great

Perfection beyond words!!!! Corrine’s attention to detail for the comfort of her guests is truly amazing! There was not one thing that we needed that wasn’t provided. We have been coming to St.Martin for many years, staying in Simpson Bay. This year was a special year for our family celebrating some milestones and I could not think of a better place than the island that we love! Finding Corrines Townhouse was the icing of the cake! The home is beautifully decorated with every amenities you could possibly need or want. We frequented all of the restaurants, but our favorite was Big Fish! The beach is lovely but our favorite morning ritual was having coffee on the deck overlooking the marina and watching for the family of Iguana’s. We love going to Orient especially Palm Beach and then returned to Antoine’s Table for one of the most wonderful dinner. Thank you Corrine for an absolutely delightful week at your Townhouse!
My Response: Hi Eileen: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I am thrilled that you had a great time in my town home. St Martin is such a special place with experiences to please everyone – the beaches, food, entertainment and just the fabulous Caribbean vibes. We’ve been going for 25 years and I am still awed when I arrive at my home and grab a Margarita and sit on the deck to watch the harbor. It’s my pleasure to share with my guests my home and all the amenities I try to provide. So happy you appreciated everything. Please return soon. Corinne & Richard Margulies

Another Wonderful Vacation at Corinne’s townhouse
Guest: Alain Miroux
Date of Stay: February 7, 2013
This second time around was as great as the first time. Being so close to the beach made that we use the townhouse a lot more as we were going back for lunch almost everyday. This year we also took advantage of ordering take out from all three restaurants that are across the street and had romantic dinners on our terrasse overlooking the marina with some great bottles of wine. The townhouse is so comfortable and well equiped that it makes you feel like you are in a six stars proprety. The addition of the pool is a nice touch, my wife would spend the later part of the afternoon reading by the pool. It is truly a pleasure to stay at Corinne’s townhouse. We are looking forward to go back next year.
My Response: Dear Alain: Well, you know they say “the second time around” is best! ha So pleased you and your wife were again able to take advantage of the romantic setting offered in the Town Home. Being able to order food from the 3 restaurants within a shell’s throw adds to the pleasure since kitchen duties don’t call. And, a good bottle of wine to enjoy while watching the harbor lights makes for a perfect evening. Thank you so much for your nice review and just remember that the spot is open for your third visit whenever you choose. The addition of the pool really completes the experience and so happy France was able to enjoy it. Best Regards, Corinne & Richard
Great home in St Martin
Guest: Michael Yassa
Date of Stay: January 16, 2013
The townhouse is very spacious and extremely comfortable. The views on the marina were great. We would not change anything from our 3 week stay. We appreciated all the little details that Corinne’s townhouse provides from the welcome at the airport, to the daily cleaning service to the the fully equipped kitchen (better than my kitchen back home!). We will definitly be back!
My Response: Thank you, Mike, for your very nice review. We are so pleased you and your family enjoyed our home and all the amenities. We hope you returned rested and with fond memories of St Martin that will entice you to come back again soon. Corinne & Richard
Second Time Back! Unbelievable!
Guest: James Yeates
Date of Stay: January 8, 2013
This was my second time staying in Corrine’s waterfront townhouse. My stay here in January was unbelievable. The weather was great as it ranged between 80-85 degrees. It was never too hot and it was NEVER cold! The townhouse itself was amazing. Upon arrival, everything you needed was there. It was very clean and everything you needed was available. The kitchen was full of all different appliances and there is a huge grill out on the porch that’s perfect to sit and eat and enjoy the view! Within walking distance of the beautiful Dawn Beach, Mr. Busby’s Beach Bar, and other very nice restaurants, this is the perfect spot for a vacation getaway. Dawn Beach is a great beach because it is never too crowded and you will always find a spot on the beach with your name on it! There are several nice restaurants in walking distance that always provide for a nice evening. The great thing about St. Maarten is that everything is within a short drive. Orient Beach, the famous Airplane Beach, and the Westin Casino are all in close proximity to the townhouse! This time around, my group took a ferry to Anguilla! This was one of the most fun times we have had on vacation. All of the beaches on Anguilla are public and there are plenty of resorts to hang out at for the day and use their beach. This time around we went to Orient beach where they offer a full range of water sports that include jet skis, banana boats, and parasailing! Fun for everyone! Finally, on to the owner. Believe me when I say that you won’t rent from a more welcoming owner than Corrine. Corrine is the type of woman who will put all of her focus on her renters to make sure that they are happy 100% of the time they are staying in her townhouse. If there is ever something you need she will help you out and if she happens to be away at the time, the staff at the Coral Beach Club is always there to make sure you get what you are looking for. This vacation was amazing and I wouldn’t change a single thing about it. I cannot wait to go back next year!!!!!
My Response: Dear James: Thank you so much for your great review. I am so happy you and your friends enjoyed our home and found it met all your expectations. That is always my goal – my guests should leave St Martin with wonderful memories, a beautiful tan and ready to face the “real world” again. I hope you return again next year to enjoy the new pool we have built. Best Regards, Corinne & Richard
Third Trip to Corinne’s town home and each more wonderful than the last!
Guest: Sebastian Word
Date of Stay: January 8, 2013
This was my parties third trip down the island and our third consecutive stay in Corinne’s town house. This is true luxury. The town home is beautifully decorated with top of the line appliance, and when we arrived the food that we had ordered was laid out immaculately in kitchen with beers in the refrigerator and wine chilled in the cooler. We spent a lot of time on the beach that is ACTUALLY 1 min from the door. The beach was wonderful, great sun, light waves, and almost never people on it! Breakfast was always a treat at Mr. Busby’s which is right on the beach, food is great, breakfast had huge portions! There was so much to do on the vacation that we didn’t get to everything. We would go out to casinos at night, various beautiful beaches with water sports by day, one day we even took a ferry over to Anguilla to visit the amazing cuisinart resort. As a young group I can confidently say that our favorite day was when we drove to the beach by the SXM airport. At that beach there are plenty of drinks, entertainment, and the planes fly 30 ft overhead when they land! All in all amazing trip, worth it in every way, and made perfect by a perfect host in Corinne and her Town home
My Response: Dear Third Timer: We loved having you and your group in our home and it sounds like you loved being there! Thanks for sharing your experience and activities with us. Having guests enjoy a great vacation in our home is music to our ears and it certainly appears you took full advantage of all the special offerings in St Martin. I am certain future guests will look forward to trying out some of your suggestions. Mark your calendar because the town home is waiting for your fourth visit!! Best Regards, Corinne & Richard Margulies

My family recently had the pleasure of staying in St Marten for a week at Corinne’s TownHouse #19. We had been to St Marten several times before but always on a cruise ship, staying for just a day at a time. This was our first air/land trip to St Marten. After spending 7 days in this paradise the question is not IF we will return on another air/land vacation, but WHEN. One other point that is for sure, is we will reserve one of Corinne’s properties. I would like to make it clear that prior to two months ago, Corinne was a complete stranger. I have no relation to Corinne, nor was I provided any incentive from Corinne for the content of this review. My sole intent in writing this review is to share with others, the excellent vacation which we just experienced in St Marten. First, let me say a few words about Corinne. Being a detailed person (an Engineer), I had many questions regarding the TownHouse rental and island of St Marten. On all of our cruise stops in St Marten, we had always either taken a Taxi to Orient Bay or spent the day in Philipsburg. For 2 months leading up to this stay, I conversed with Corinne many times over e-mail and telephone. While it was obvious she leads a busy lifestyle, Corinne always responded quickly to my questions and provided very complete, concise and helpful information. It became clear to me that Corinne has a genuine desire to make sure your vacation is as enjoyable to you as are her stays on the Island. I got the feeling from Corinne that she takes great pride in the properties which she owns on the Island…that they are not just income-generating properties, but her homes. She views your stay as coming to her home. As such, she makes sure everything in the Townhome/Villa that she uses, is made available to you as a guest. The TownHouse was fitted with just about anything you would need for a beach vacation (and then a few things). There are plenty of bath and beach towels, shower outside, and a washer/dryer. There is also daily Maid service. Corinne’s long-time Assistant, Victoria, is a sweet lady who works hard to ensure you are having a perfect vacation. Victoria was always there when we needed her, and unseen the rest of the time. She was integral in making us feel welcome at the TownHouse. All in all, this was one of our best vacations ever! Certainly a good part of our enjoyment came from having such a great place to recover and sleep at night. Thanks Corinne!
Everything You Need and More For a Great Vacation

The Town Home has everything that you need for a great vacation whether you are a couple or a family. It is quiet and peaceful with a fun, two story decked view of the marina cove. The apartment itself is immaculate. If you wish to cook your own meals, the kitchen is equipped with enough tools for a good chef. You may not want contact with the outside world but the Town Home has wireless internet and cable televisions in the living room and bedrooms to keep you in touch if you want to. The management and people who come to clean are very friendly and efficient. And if you’re running out of ways to relate to kids in their teens and twenties, come here! The island offers enough for everyone of any age, whether you want to just rest and relax or get out for adventures. We spent some part of everyday on the great beach by the Town Home swimming, playing volleyball and sunning away the hours. An impending ocean wind can determine the fact but the waves on this part of the island were big enough for experienced swimmers to have fun in, yet not overwhelming for younger kids. And a cool drink or lunch is available right on the beach at Mr. Busby’s. There are also several other great restaurants right by the Town Home, including ‘Canoa’ and ‘Big Fish’, an excellent seafood restaurant that serves, among other things, delicious crab cakes. We took a trip to the beach and cafes on the French side at Grand Case where the water was crystal clear and very gentle for little folks who are 7 and under. And if you rent a beach chair for the day (reasonable fee), the people who own the beach fronts there wait on you hand and foot and you can order things to drink and eat while taking in the ocean views. We also chartered a catamaran and had a day of sailing and snorkeling at one of the smaller island coves. St. Martin has nice shopping areas and a vibrant nightlife and we spent one night at a casino, trying our hand at roulette. One can have fun and hang in the game for a while with a little money (if you don’t put too many chips in one spot) and our older boys came out ahead. We quit once $30 dollars down and just enjoyed watching them play. At the end of the day we looked forward to returning to the Town Home which had all of the comforts of home and more. (The beds are truly worth mentioning, we slept so well). And at vacation’s end we realized that if we could do it again we might not go anywhere else as all that you could wish for is near at hand.

Fantastic Island Vacation!!

Corinne’s Town Home was absolutely gorgeous!!! In person, the condo looks exactly the same if not better than it does in the pictures. The decorations were classy, the property was impeccably clean and the staff was extremely friendly/helpful. The town home was equipped with all the amenities one could possibly want or need. Not to mention the beds were SO comfortable! The view from the back porches were absolutely gorgeous. It was so serene to sit on the porch at all hours of day and look out onto the water – from watching the pelicans dive for fish in the morning to the magnificent view of the stunning boat lights at night. The beach is only about a minute walk from the front door of the townhouse. The water was absolutely perfect for snorkeling – there are so many fish and interesting coral reefs to explore! Also, unlike most other parts of the island, there were actually some waves here which always makes a day at the beach that much more enjoyable. At night, there were many spots to choose from. For happy hour, Busby’s Restaurant is a great place to go ($1 dollar beers, half price drinks, etc – I recommend their homemade banana rum!) For dinner, I recommend Canoa, which is one of the restaurants located right next to the Townhouse, for an absolutely delicious meal. Their seared tuna was one of the best dishes I’ve ever had. Right down the road is the Weston, which offers a very fun casino scene that has a lot of table games (a lot of the casinos on the island only have machines games). I highly recommend this vacation spot for anyone looking to have a great Caribbean vacation. Whether it be a relaxing vacation or a vacation packed with adventure, this is definitely a great place to stay. I can not wait to go back to Corinne’s Town Home!

Beautiful Home & Amenities

From the moment you walk into Corinne’s townhome it is like walking into a high-end South Miami Beach residence – complete with travertine, leather, top end appliances and ocean friendly colors. Truly, the views are exquisite from every deck and balcony. As a traveler who is on the road 3 – 4 days every week, I am accustomed to staying in hotels of all levels and know that pictures on websites are frequently photo shop fixed to where there is little or no resemblance to the actual place. Well, for the first time in years, I was astounded to see that Corinne’s townhouse actually looks even more wonderful in person than it does on her very polished website! It was absolute heaven to be picked up promptly at the airport, delivered to the townhome with a warm welcome from Coral Beach Club staff, have food waiting in the refrigerator and the rental car delivered within 15 minutes of arrival. This is all due to Corinne’s incredibly attentive hosting skills in advance. There is nothing that was disappointing in this entire process. I’ve stayed in St. Martin before with friends at a time share on the Dutch side and have always loved the island for its diversity and food. Corinne’s location on Oyster Pond was nothing short of perfection. We usually choose ocean front views, but were so delighted with the boats on Oyster pond encompassing a morning through night spectacular view that we have now changed our minds! In addition, Corinne’s townhome is on the border between the Dutch and French side, making it ideal for going to Orient Beach, Pinel Island and the gourmet capital of the Caribbean, Grande Case! Pinel Island was a new find for us, recommended by the extremely knowledgeable Ingrid, Manager of the property, who also gave us many other savvy tips shared below. We absolutely loved Pinel Island – only a short 5 minute boat ride from Orient Bay and a measly $7 US Roundtrip! The water there is like St. John’s – aqua blue, white sand and very private. For restaurants we went to three of Corinne’s recommended: Spiga, L’Auberge Gourmand and Big Fish. All were exceptional in their own way and the service was superb every time. Several times, because the view and ambiance was so perfect at “home” we ordered out from Big Fish and ate on the lower deck of the main floor overlooking the pond with our own bottle of Grand Cru purchased on the French side for next to nothing, compared to US prices. For wine lovers like us, don’t bother to bring any with you.

Our stay at Corrine’s Town home couldn’t be nicer. Corrine thought of everything. The unit was even nicer in person. We have stayed at many rentals before but this was by the nicer unit we have every stayed in. Housekeeping came in every day and they did a really nice job. We are familiar with St. Maarten and chose this location based on Dawn Beach. If you want a pool you need to rent Corrines Ocean view villa, but we were in the ocean everyday. Phillipsburg is much closer to drive to. If you are looking to go to Simpson Bay or Marigot it is a longer drive (about 30 minutes in total depending on traffic). There are a few restaurants in the immediate area and that would include the Westin which is a 2 min. drive. St. Maarten has many different beaches to go to between the French side and Dutch. Each has its own charm. If you want to go for a day trip, Anquilla and St. Barts are only a boat ride away. Pinel island is great for snorkling and also a quick ferry ride. The restaurants on the island are all good for the most part, some better than others. We like Marios Bistro in Sandy Ground, Busbys is across the street great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. If you are craving home made pastas go to IZI in Simpson Bay. If you like clean grilled food, Skip Jacks in Simpson Bay is great(Loved the grilled Wahoo, Mahi, Grouper and the fried calamari). Weather was gorgeous. Enjoy Corrines. Linda NYC

The townhouse is just perfectly located with a beautiful view of the marina and across the street from the beach. The townhouse is as the pictures, just gourgeous, it is very well appointed and the owners have great taste. The bed was so comfortable that my wife wants us to change our at home now. We had breakfast every morning on the terrasse overlooking the marina and watching vacationers taking one of Captain Allan boat tour. This was our 7 times in St-Martin and I can tell you it was the nicest place we stayed. You have three great restaurants just accross the street, which we did eat at each one, Big Fish, Canoa and Daniel by the sea. We ended up ordering out from Daniel by the sea and enjoying our dinner on the terrasse with a good bottle of bordeaux. The housekeeping staff is very professionnal. There is also a small convenient store by the townhouse with mostly what you need if you do not have time to go to town. Back to the townhouse, it is so well decorated, it was obviously done by a designer our Corinne as great taste (probably both). We had friends who were staying at the Westin and they could not beleive how luxurious our place was. In previous trips to St-Martin we use to spend most of our time between Orient Beach and Pinel Island, but with the Townhome so close to Dawn Beach we ended up spending our time mostly between Pinel Island and Dawn Beach. It was great to walk back to the townhouse at lunch time have some lunch and a good bottle of Rose and than walk back to the beach for the rest of the afternoon. Little secret for the Lobster lovers, just by the Townhouse there is a gentlemen ( he has a small pick up truck and boat) who every morning goes fishing, you tell him how many lobsters and how big and he will get them for you at the price you would pay at the market in Marigot without having to go at 7am to get them. They were awsome. Thank you Corinne for the opportunity to stay at your Townhouse. Alain & France

My week at Corrine’s Townhouse was nothing short of amazing. Let me start by saying that the townhouse itself was fabulous. The two-floor space is beautifully designed in every way including extremely comfortable outdoor furniture (great for naps!). The bedrooms are great sizes and have very nice bathrooms and the kitchen appliances are state-of-the-art. The view of the marina is very pretty. The townhouse was spotless! Corrine provided great customer service while I was there and if there was ever a question regarding anything, the staff at Coral Beach was around to answer it. The listing description was very accurate, just a short walk out of the townhouse and you are in the ocean. The Coral Beach Club offers some of the best island food I’ve ever eaten (and I’ve been to the Bahamas, Jamaica, and Aruba). The first night me and my company were there we went to Busby’s, a mellow and delicious place to dine with the family. Two other restaurants in walking distance of the townhouse are Big Fish and Canoa, which boasts some of the best seafood I’ve ever had. These restaurants also have a very lively staff who want you to enjoy your stay as much as you do yourself! As I said earlier, the beach is only a minute walk away. A beautiful and small beach that offers privacy and relaxation for all. With a few quiet beach bars, it’s the perfect way to spend your day! While in St. Martin, there are many activities one can participate in, most notably water sports. At night, the island offers a pretty boardwalk with many restaurants as well as casinos (13 in total). St. Martin is a small island which is great because everything is within a reasonable driving distance. I would unquestionably recommend this property to a friend or relative. Corrine’s Townhouse gave me a week of memories that I will look back on for a long time. Starting with the property decor and amenities, the townhouse itself offered a very comfortable living experience. A short walk to the beach explains itself and the food was top notch. Having personally met Corrine I can tell you that she is a very warm and caring person who only wants to help others. By staying in her luxurious townhouse, you know that you will be taken care of as if you were her own kin. One can’t go wrong by choosing to stay in Corrine’s Townhouse!

Just spent 3 glorious weeks in Corinne’s townhouse. It is a designer’s dream home with everthing conceivable at your fingertips from her lush towels to her well-equipped designer kitchen. Gorgeous marina views to enjoy. Townhouse is impeccable, comfortable and excellent staff to help out with any requests. We would definitely recommend staying here for your next vacation.
