Guana Bay Beach Villas is nestled directly on the surf, on the tradewinds side of Dutch Sint Maarten, overlooking the island of St. Barts. Rattan and natural wood furnishings highlight studio, one and two bedroom accommodations… all with an ocean view! The villas are air conditioned, each with a kitchen, and a large terrace overlooking a magnificent panorama of sea and secluded beach. Nightlife is abundantly available but Sint Maarten is also the ideal island for a quiet getaway. With 36 gorgeous white sand beaches, and equally scenic islands close by, when you're not just plain relaxing, water activities are the big hits on Sint Maarten. Snorkeling, swimming, fishing and sailing... from one beach to the next…can fill your days. Under sunsets as big as the horizon, cuisines as varied as the stars above tease gourmets from the Dutch side to the French. In Philipsburg, nightclubs, discos, bars and casinos play until 3 a.m., satisfying travelers looking for nightlife even hotter than the Caribbean day! Duty free shopping for goods from around the world gives Sint Maarten a certain European flair. Yet, West Indian crafts, jewelry and fashions will make any shopper's local treasure search a success. Language barriers aren't a problem with merchants as almost everyone is bilingual. Downtown Philipsburg is only minutes away by car.
Another beautiful resort nearby is La Vista. La Vista is a small, quaint resort nestled at the foot of Pelican Key. Done in an Antillean style, where all rooms have a fresh European look with a spectacular ocean view. Although a restaurant and swimming pool are on property, the nearby Pelican Resort provides watersports, casino, shops and a health spa. Personalized service and friendly ambiance have many people returning year after year. The beach is about a two minute walk (a quarter mile) from La Vista Resort.
