The location of Casa Islaya is very secluded, yet you won't have far to get to any of the 3 pristine beaches of Terres Basses: Plum Bay, Baie Rouge Beach, and Long Bay are all a 5 min drive away, or a 10 min. walk.

For your entertainment, shopping, dining, gambling... you can either drive to Maho or Cupecoy on Sint Maarten, or to Marigot on the French side. Both tourist areas are within a 10-15 min. drive away. The international Airport SXM is 5 miles away, and the island's busiest area (Simpson Bay) is some 6 miles from Casa Islaya.
