The Keys village on Sint Maarten is working on bringing fort it’s first Green Community and Eco Neighborhood. The focus is becoming THE green community while providing a low-cost, very affordable, primary residence or vacation home. Plans are for future residents to live in self-sufficient homes built to withstand hurricanes and earthquakes. These Eco Tiny Homes are built to be fire resistant and will provide own renewable energy sources (e.g., electricity, biogas). Each home is hooked up to a waste-management and waste-water management system which in turn is connected to surrounding landscaped “kitchen” gardens providing this little neighbourhood own and home-grown vegetables, herbs, flowers and various fruit. This project landscaped park combined with community gardens spans the entire location providing a getaway within the already gorgeous community. Greenhouses, solar panels, chicken coops, and any other green aspects are more than welcome in this community. It is our mission for all Tiny Homes to be net zero!
About the Neighbourhood
This Eco Tiny Homes neighborhood located in The Keys, gives easy access to one of Sint Maarten main ring road called “Sucker Garden road”. Via this road reaching Philipsburg (capital city) and its harbour industry, companies and shopping district is just a 5 minute car drive. To reach both Airports (Dutch and French side) it’s a 20 minute car drive. The nearest beaches within a drive range of 5 – 15 minutes are Dawn Bay, Guana Bay, Great Bay, Little Bay, (Dutch side) and Le Gallion and Orient Bay (French side). Tiny Home residents will have access to several roof top terraces with absolute view of Philipsburg city-, the Salt Pond and Great Bay ocean. Besides being a suburb from Philipsburg, The Keys village has a mini-supermarket, a bakery, a hair salon, and a hostel (Guest House). At the Sucker Garden ring road there are several bars and restaurants with dancing options, supermarkets, car service garages, and car rental companies.
This location becomes a gated community facilitating a community pool, onsite services for housekeeping, maintenance, gardening, and private parking also furnished for electrical vehicles.
The Keys Market
The Keys Market which is the neighborhood local market and food garden provides not only fresh produce, but has several local food selling eateries providing leisure activities, jobs and business opportunities.
The plan for this location is also to construct a Health and Wellness Center and boutique hotel and more business location options to cater to The Keys village community and its visitors.
