Vakay 2014

We booked our vacation for December and we are psyched! We wanted affordable, on the beach, with a pool, and a "home" atmosphere instead of a hotel. We have been very lucky with VRBO in the past, so we went searching there again and we found what appears to be a gem.

As we are traveling during a holiday week (darn school calendar) the prices that begin as semi-affordable go WAY up and out of site. Bummer. But after much searching and comparing we found a reasonably priced villa on St. Maarten on Cupecoy Beach. Here's the description:

Cupecoy Villa Description
This villa is located in the Heart of St. Maarten’s Gold Coast Cupecoy Beach and is one of only 8 ocean front villas in the complex known as Ocean Club Villas. This ocean front villa has the most spectacular views of the turquoise Caribbean Ocean the island of St. Maarten has to offer along with a personal sand beach at your feet.

The villa has three generously large air conditioned bedrooms, two on the second floor level and one that encompasses the entire third floor, all with private patios enjoying spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea as well as some of the most spectacular sunsets. Each bedroom features bathrooms en suite with ceiling fans throughout.

In addition to an excellent beach for swimming, and snorkeling, there is a large freshwater pool for the exclusive use of the Ocean Club residents. There is a private beach walkway to experience one of the islands best kept beaches known as Cupecoy Beach. Guests are well looked after by a friendly and efficient staff. And for those who want to take in the true beauty of the island, a rental car is highly recommended.

The villa is just a 5 minute ride from the airport and within walking distance to the Atlantis Casino as well as many shops and boutiques at the Porto-Cupecoy which is a Mediterranean style marina village and Italian plaza. You are just a 2 minute walk to the largest indoor shopping mall on the island known as the “Blue Mall.” This mall is now open with 85 Retail Shops, 10 Restaurants, and a Supermarket.
You can watch the cruise ships sail in and out, view the neighboring islands of Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Kitts, and on a clear day Statia. Or just enjoy the breath-taking sunsets all from your own patio. So, create the vacation of your life here at “Blue Water Paradise!”

This past year has been very challenging with a couple of tragic family losses as well as the stress of building the new house. This trip should be prescribed by a doctor and paid for by health insurance :)

The photos look amazing:
