"My wife and enjoyed Island Mermaid as it is a spectacular condo in an awesome location. The views from the balcony of the passing yachts onto Simpson Bay harbour, hills to the left that remind you of Italy with the colourful villas and a view of the bay all the way to left where you can see the airport. The condo itself is like visiting an art museum, so much eclectic collecting has been done by the owner if it is a rainy day you can still be entertained without leaving. Yes the back alley is another world, nothing but a plus in my mind. If you are new to the caribbean it may be a shock, but for those who know it is a way of life and another experience to enjoy. Roosters and friendly stray dogs provide a nice change form cars and other urban noises and we enjoyed them thoroughly. Walking down the beach to Karaker a converted school bus awesome beach from restaurant was a daily routine if we stayed in Simpson Bay. Not to mention the close proximity to all the restaurants in Simpson Bay made it at ought decision to stay in and cook dinner with a beautiful view from the balcony or head out. So we usually had wine and cheese until sun set and then off to a nice restaurant. Pineapple Petes may have had the best rack of lamb I have ever had. I would absolutely recommend this condo, and if you find anything you don't like stay another week because you are not relaxed enough yet : )"

"We have been traveling to St Martin every year for the last 20 years or so staying at various places within the Orient Bay vicinity. This year as the villa we normally stay at was booked we stayed here. The villa is absolutely gorgeous - very spacious with plenty of room and amenities. With one bedroom upstairs and one down - it affords privacy for all! There are a total of 2 1/2 baths, a fabulous kitchen stocked with all tools necessary and even those you did not think you needed. The deck/ pool area is again terrific - we enjoyed using the Jacuzzi every night! Consider eating at Rancho del Sol - we ate there twice and the food was great and reasonably priced."

"We had a fabulous vacation in St. Maarten and this property was excellent. The view was spectacular and the home was very well appointed. We could not have asked for a better experience. The owner was wonderful to work with and had great recommendations for activities.
We were traveling with our teens and they loved all the room this property offered. We would absolutely return and stay here. One of the many advantages is the location--we traveled all over the island and enjoyed all St. Maarten has to offer.
Thank you Owners for taking such pride in your home and allowing others to share."

"C'etait vraiment parfait, avec une vue extraordinaire. We had a wonderfully relaxing visit and enjoyed cooking in the very well-equipped kitchen. We've already booked our return visit in a couple of months!!
A few things to be aware of:
- It's on the top floor, so you need to be able to climb a lot of stairs
- The internet is manageable, but not quite fast enough to work remotely
- The building is a little run down, but the condo itself is amazing
Martine and her husband are both so helpful and friendly!!"
