A Summer Beach Escape

At Beach Escape Villa, tranquility is a shore thing.

Our family fell in love with Beach Escape Villa many moons ago, based on its location alone. A villa with chic beach house charm, Beach Escape is true to its name.

Set on secluded Sandy Point beach, at Beach Escape you are directly on sandy beachfront.

This stretch of sand affectionally called Sandy Point sits on the island's southern side, gazing out to breathtaking St. Martin.

It has long held a special spot in our family's hearts. Back in the day, my Dad and I would spend many afternoons sitting right on the beautiful "point of sand" that jets out towards St. Martin.

Beach Escape takes full advantage of its setting with beach chairs, umbrellas, a grassy front lawn overlooking the Caribbean Sea and even beach service.
