Villa Prana April 2015
We had a wonderful time staying at Prana. The views were magnificent and the villas amenities were outstanding. We plan on returning soon for another stay.

Perfect getaway location
The home is not the easiest to get to be sure to rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle. But the hills are worth it for the scenic views and idyllic location. The house of set up perfectly for a group of 6/7. The rooms each have their own bathrooms and are separate from the common areas so you have complete privacy. The pool is perfect with a view of the ocean. The house is completely equipped. I would hit the grocery store on your way to the house because it’s a great kitchen for cooking. You are a short jaunt to the beach, restaurant sand resorts so it’s the best of all worlds.

Sunrise view in Paradise
Prana Villa was amazing! It was paradise! We loved the location, waking up to the sound of the ocean, and the view from the pool balcony which was breathtaking. It was very convenient to have Dawn beach just a short walk away. The house was clean spacious and all the amenities we needed were all there. The villa is located in a gated community along with the actual villa having a gated entrance of its own. The main part of the house has a half bath, kitchen, utility room, dining room table and living room area. They have three bedrooms that are located off of the pool area. These three bedrooms are not directly connected to the main kitchen/living room area. There is a separate AC unit for each the main kitchen/living area and another for the bedroom. We slept in the green room which had two seperate sliding doors with ocean views. Some of the amenities in the room were a TV, DVD player, two ceiling fans, a safe, beach towels, wireless internet,and an armoire for hanging clothes and storing belongings. The balcony area had chairs, tables, beautiful greenery,the infinity pool and a pergola which covered a small portion of the pool. The infinity pool was nice and clean. The palm trees blocked some of the view while in the pool, but I’m sure once they grow taller the view will be even better. There is an area near the balcony rails which overlooks dawn beach and the Westin hotel. This area is also great for catching an amazing view of the sunrise. Our visit to St. Maarten will be one we will never forget. Some of the places we would recommend were Mullet Bay beach, Maho Beach, shopping in Philipsburg,Fort Saint-Louis,St. Maarten Zoo,The Butterfly Farm, Big Fish for Dinner, Crave for Dinner, Lazy Lizard Beach Bar & Grill for lunch, Calmos Cafe for lunch, Pizza Galley, La Sucriere for breakfast and for desert The Belgian Chocolate Box.

Villa Prana – A wonderful villa in Dawn Beach Estates
This is our second time at Villa Prana and already looking forward to the third. The Villa is outfitted with everything your could need. The only limitation we found is that the Green Bedroom really should have a Queen size bed.

Villa Prana – Paradise
Wonderful villa. Great views. Beautiful gardens. If only the road between the villa and Oyster Pond harbor were fixed up a little.

Stunning home, wonderful escape
We just returned from a week at Villa Prana. What a lovely home. From the beautiful views to the immaculately maintained home and garden, this house exceeded my expectations. The kitchen has every gadget we wanted, the cabinets were full of great spices and the space…the space was perfect for gathering together and relaxing. The house is perched on a cliff above the Westin. The beach access to Dawn Beach is a bit of a walk, but not difficult. It takes about 5-8 minutes and involves walking down the road about 500 feet and then down a set of stairs to the back of the Westin timeshares. Not okay for young children or people with disabilities or challenges with walking; the stairs are pretty steep and it’s all uphill on the return. Because of its cliff location the house is very safe. There’s an alarm, the gate has a remote and all of the doors and windows have hurricane shutters that close with remotes. The A/C is wonderful at keeping the house cool. The owners provide daily housekeeping during the week (what a treat) and the gardener, Marc, comes in as needed. The house is lovingly decorated with beautiful island treasures and the house is surrounded by a Zen garden, complete with bird feeders, tropical plants and statues. It’s lovely. The only drawback to this house is its fourth bedroom, which is on a level below the main house and accessed from the driveway. This bedroom has its own bath but it’s physically separated from the house and not nearly as nice. All the other rooms open onto the pool deck are are much lighter, airier and more open. Also, because of security concerns, the main house is locked down at night. This created, for us, a situation where the people on the lower level couldn’t get in in the morning! We worked it out but it wasn’t ideal. Dawn Beach is gorgeous and mellow. Oyster Pond has restaurants ans snorkeling and the Westin is a beautiful property. They SAY you can’t use/rent their chairs but it’s amazing what $20 will buy! Villa Prana is nicer than these pictures. With a steady breeze, fabulous views in several directions and the owners’ dedication to making the stay comfortable it’s well-worth the trip.

Prana villa in Dawn Beach Estates
My wife and I stayed at Villa Prana in March 2009. We had an unbelievable stay and the Villa really exceeded our expectations. The owner is gracious and easy to work with. The house looks straight out of a Pottery Barn catalog. I really can’t say enough about how enjoyable and SAFE our stay was at Villa Prana. Please do not confuse this villa with La Perla or other rentals in Dawns Beach Estates because most owners do a very good job of keeping their properties safe and well-maintained.
