The Jewel box is located in Cayhill, on the Dutch side of St. Maarten island.  It  overlooks Little Bay and Great Bay, facing South East,  with a clear view of St. Bart’s.  Fantastic sunrises flood the house with early morning sun,  gentle breezes blow almost continually, and the sun passes behind the house in the afternoon providing much welcome shade. With the beautiful garden surrounding the house and the outdoor shower, you will relax in a real tropical hideway!

The house is conveniently located, a few minutes drive from several supermarkets, several great beaches, the movie theater, and less than half an hour from the airport, Phillipsburg, and Marigot on the French side. The area is secluded and very quiet, with few neighbors around. You will meet dog walkers on the way, and you will often see birds, monkeys and iguanas around the property.

The jewel box house is gated with a spacious driveway that can welcome several cars. This is a single story home with a lot of Caribbean caracter.

The house features a large living area with a brand new kitchen. Fully equipped and furnished, the kitchen has a large island and quartz countertops. The living room leads to the covered porched with hypnotizing views the hills and turquoise water.

The master bedroom offers a queen size bed and a large closet with a safe. The second bedroom has access to the porch. It includes a single bed and a pull out bed, for 2 children. The third bedroom includes another single bed.

The bathroom has been completely renovated with a double sink vanity and a shower with rainwater shower head.

A laundry room with a washer and dryer and plenty of storage space is also available off the kitchen.

The house has three air conditioners (living room, master bedroom and 2nd bedroom) which are more than adequate to cool the entire house on even the hottest summer day. There are also ceiling fans and heavenly breezes when the windows are open, that naturally moderate the temperature inside the house.

The outdoor area is perfectly relaxing with lounge chairs and an outdoor shower. A BBQ is available for delicious meals with the beach in the background.

This is the ideal rental for a family with 1 or 2 children!

Small dog or cat accepted.


History of the house:

The house was built by Glen’s parents, Hope and Henry Jacobs.  Hope and Henry, both native New Yorkers,  started coming to St. Maarten in 1965, managing the legendary inn, Mary’s Fancy for several years before building this house in 1975.  Hope was an avid gardener, and while she lived here, the grounds were awash in color. After Hope and Henry passed away, their son Glen and his wife Robin retired and decided to renovate the house in 2017 but kept some key features of the house that makes it so special and unique. Glen and Robin decided to name the house the "Jewel Box", which is the name of their favorite painting, featured in the living room.
