About Roberta Valins

We have been living on the island as owners or visitors since 1970. We have worked as visiting medical specialists during 20 of the past years. We love the island and decided to invest in a home on our first visit. Several changes of properties have occurred over the years and we decided to have a villa rental business in addition to our professional interest on the island.

We live in the states and have been able to enjoys many years of vacationing with our large family and friends.

Roberta Valins purchased this villa in 1990

Why Roberta Valins chose St Maarten / Saint Martin

We felt that Beacon Hill was extremely well located for our interests. Beaches and shops were important in making our decision and we have enjoyed many years of fun in the sun with our children and grandchildren. They love the neighboring beaches but really enjoy the activities at the villa. The pool is ther favorite. Cocktails on our magnificant terrace is the best time of day for our adult family.

What makes this villa unique

Privacy, service and fun are our goals for a fabulous vacation that you will never forget.

Wonderful housekeeper, the best views on the island, proximity to nightlife, shopping, restaurants and the best of St Maarten.

Try our villa, You will not regret it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

-February 11

I just wanted to drop you a note, now that we're all back from St. Martin, and tell you what a wonderful time we had staying at Casa Boco. The setting is picturesque and you have the best sunset view of any place I've been on the island - right outside the door. We loved staying there. The room was perfect, the pool was wonderful, and we had everything we needed and more. As you know, my 88 year old mother who'd never been out of the country, my sister who turned 50, and a some relatives and friends who'd never been to St. Martin, were all going to come to my timeshare at the Towers. I decided I needed more room so I found your website and decided to stay at Casa Boco with one of the gang. My family thought I was being nice when I let them stay at the Towers. Then they came over to Casa Boco for cocktails at sunset and they all offered to swap with me so I could stay at my timeshare. Needless to say, I didn't. I would recommend renting from you to anyone, without reservation, and I hope I can do it again sometime. I feel very lucky to have found your website and even luckier to have stayed at your lovely villa. Thanks again to Claudia who is an outstanding site manager. Thanks again, Paula, Glen, Marybeth, Mom, Lisa,

Beautiful oceanfront home

  • 5 of 5

We were in St. Maarten for the AUC med school graduation and wanted accommodations for two families to share comfortably and be convenient to all the festivities. Casa Boco fit the bill on all fronts! The property is well maintained and very well equipped, with a well-stocked kitchen (including basics for clean up, trash bags, paper towels, etc so we didn't have to buy those items). The views are beyond compare- the pictures capture a fraction of the beauty of the glorious sunsets on the patio! Also the nice wide patio area and smaller outdoor seating areas allowed everyone to have their own spot without feeling crowded - even with 10 adults staying together. The crystal clean pool was a wonderful addition and was enjoyed by all! The rooms are nicely appointed and individually temp controlled - so everyone was happy with their particular preference for AC or not! Each room has its own bathroom with shower, which was a blessing with 10 people trying to get ready to leave at the same time. Having fresh bath or beach towels available daily was a nice touch as well. The property is a few minutes drive from the airport, Sunset Beach for plane watching, the village of Maho and also Simpson Bay - everything was so close by it was great. It is a easy location for traveling to the different favorite spots on both the Dutch and French side. Claudia (the house manager) is a delight! She was so pleasant and accommodating and was not at all intrusive, even if we were home during her daily visits. The neighborhood has night security and the house is also nicely secured including individual safes in each room - so no concerns about valuables while out and about (which can be of concern in some areas in the islands). I would definitely recommend this property as a vacation home in St. Maarten and would love to have a chance to stay there again in the future~

Delightful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Casa Boco Villa was pure heaven! So relaxing to get up every morning sit outside looking out over the Caribbean Sea having our coffee. We then walked to the best beach on the island, Karacter Beach. Not to mention lots of other great beaches close by.

We then started our evenings having drinks by the pool watching the beautiful sunsets. We were enjoying the atmosphere at the villa so much that several nights we brought dinner in.

One of the best vacations we've ever had! Would definitely go back again!

Poolside, Bay Front Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in one of the studios at Casa Boco. It was absolutely perfect for us (a couple in our 20s). Having the beautiful poolside patio overlooking the bay made us want to just stay home most days, but there were so many things we wanted to do on the island instead we enjoyed evening poolside relaxation sessions watching the sun set over the bay after day trips. The location is close to a lot of attractions on the Dutch side, while still being only a short drive to the French side.

I'd recommend St. Maarten, The Villa Lady, and Casa Boco to anyone who wants to have great access to all the island has to offer while also valuing the simple joys of relaxing in the tropics

Absolutely loved my recent revisit to Casa Boco !

  • 5 of 5

Have been back to Casa Boco at least 10 times ! So conveniently located- not far from Airport, beautiful beaches, and fine restaurants.

Feel so relaxed there with lovely pool overlooking the ocean and has a great layout, outdoor atrium, terrace by rooms and pool, and beautiful sunsets. The property is well maintained, always newly painted, with working cable, wifi, and air conditioning when needed but the cool ocean breezes allow beautiful ventilation naturally. We are walking distance from beautiful beaches as well as several restaurants and the famous Sunset Bar- a gathering place for delicious food and drink and close proximity to airplane take-off and landing.

St. Maarten feels like home to us and Casa Boco has amenities that also make one feel at home with fully stocked kitchen, indoor sitting area, spacious bedrooms, and a wonderful housekeeper who has been there for many years and welcomes us back whenever we come.

We love the island beaches, casual and fine dining and options for eating at villa, friendly native islanders. We also enjoy days spent at the villa relaxing at the pool.

Looking forward to more great times at Casa Boco- a lovely waterfront villa on a beautiful, peaceful island.

Amazing week and unbelievable view

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to stay and enjoy the Island.

The house was well maintained and clean.

The sound of the waves breaking at night was so soothing. We ate dinners at the outside dining table and loved having morning coffee sitting outside by the pool. The bedrooms were comfortable and all amenities of home. Three nice size bedrooms in the main house, with comfortable sitting area and nice size kitchen. The bathrooms had everything you need and the kitchen was well equipped . All the rooms had air conditioning plus ceiling fans. In the evening we sat on the patio and listened to the sound of the ocean. Plenty of lounge chairs by the pool. Took morning walks and were able to walk to Character Beach.

The sunsets were fantastic. There were 3 families with adult children. They slept at the studios located by the pool, which included microwaves, tv and refrigerators. The caretaker was wonderful and kept the house very clean. Would definitely recommend the house.

Our most wonderful vacation, ever

  • 5 of 5

St. Maarten turned out to be the perfect vacation island for me and my wife. We were celebrating 17 years together, and hadn't had time to ourselves in ages. We've stayed in private residences before, but never have we felt so at home as we did at Casa Boco.

The property is immaculately clean. The kitchen was stocked with pots and pans, plates and utensils. It was great, taking our time getting up in the morning and making a real pot of coffee, then taking our breakfast on the lanai - the most spectacular part of Casa Boco. The owner, Roberta Valins, even had a bottle of wine waiting for us to help celebrate our anniversary.

The view from the lanai is pure serenity. Just beyond the pool is the Caribbean Sea. The view of water and sky put us in just the right mood for the day, and relaxed us in the evening after long days of sightseeing, picture-taking, and water activities.

Although we didn't know much about St. Maarten's geography going there, we soon discovered we were in one of the best locations on the island. We were ten minutes from the airport, grocery shopping, and Simpson Bay - banking, great dining, movie rentals, were very close by and easy to find. All main roads connect in the area, so getting to our daily destinations was a no-stress event.

The way Casa Boco is situated on Burgeaux Bay allows for complete privacy, which made it easy to rekindle our romance, swimming under the stars, or enjoying the luscious sunshine. Our villa was one of the best parts of our vacation.

The customer service was excellent. Roberta Valins, owner of the property, made all of our arrangements easy and simple. The concierge was waiting for us when we got there and made us feel quite at home. Maid and laundry service couldn't have been better. There was never a worry or a hassle our whole time there.

Dining out, we were expecting seafood, seafood, and more seafood, but surprisingly, the island's specialty is ribs, barbecued creole style. A ten-minute ride from Casa Boco took us to the best ribs on St. Maarten, at Lee's Roadside Inn, located on the main road in Simpson Bay.

Our two favorite daytime activities were water sports and sunbathing at Orient Beach, and hanging out in Philipsburg, capital of the Dutch side. Every evening we looked forward to returning to our cozy villa on the sea, where we often cooked our own dinner, just the two of us, and enjoyed the sunset over the Caribbean. Casa Boco is the place to stay on St. Maarten!
