Recent St Maarten reviews

  • Loved St Marteen & this Villa!

    "One of the best equipped villas we have rented. An incredible amount of detail was paid. My children (age 11 & 13) have only known gated country club living and were initially taken aback by the neighborhood. However, the next day, they were playing with the neighborhood kids and dog. Christmas Eve, we walked to a nearby church for service. We easily navigated the island - both Dutch and French side. We caught a ferry for a day in Anguilla. We chartered a speedboat w/ a skipper for a day in St. Barths and lunch at Nikki Beach. Each Christmas break, we select a different island to visit. This is one island and villa that I would definitely like to revisit"

  • Wonderful Villa and Location

    "We rented this Villa for a two week family vacation. (6 adults). The villa was exactly as pictured. It was clean, well appointed and very nicely decorated. We were especially pleased to learn it has a backup water reserve tank. (As the island does lose water from time to time.) The two dedicated parking spots were a wonderful bonus. The fenced and gated pool and entertaining area gave us the option to stay around the pool and relax with our family; however all of Orient Bay is just a short walk away. Bruno and Sylvie are wonderful hosts. We will be back!"

  • Perfect spot. Great Condo.

    "Our family of 4, (Mom, Dad, 2 teenagers) stayed here for 2 weeks for our family vacation and we just couldn't have asked for a better setup. I'll start with a bit about the condo itself: The condo is perfect for a family like ours, with a master suite downstairs (privacy!), and 2 bedrooms upstairs, (1 large, one smaller) with a full bath on the 2nd floor. It also has a half bath off the living room for convenience. The balconies on both floors offer great views of the ocean, and our kids really enjoyed sitting outside and watching the yachts go by, and in the distance occasionally a cruise ship on its way to Phillipsburg. Pretty cool. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything you need for a quick breakfast, as well as the kitchen tools you'd need to make a full-on meal, (which we did on a couple of nights). The condo has wi-fi, (which all of us really appreciated) as well as a DVD player, Bose dock and all the comforts of home. Everything was exceptionally clean and we really appreciated the little touches like abundant baskets of beach towels and brochures of local restaurants and activities. Now for the location: AMAZING!!! Simpson Bay Beach is a real gem. It seems to be primarily a locals beach, as it is quiet and mostly used by the folks that live or rent along it, this gives it a real relaxing and fun vibe... The beach is just a few steps from the condo, just past the beautiful pool and through the privacy gate. The sand is white, and the beach is about 2 miles long... perfect for a walk in the morning or as a perfect vantage point for taking in the incredible sunsets. (We did this most nights!) Just down the beach to the right is a fantastic beach bar/restaurant called Karakter, which you really shouldn't miss. We spent a LOT of time there, and our teens really liked strolling down there on their own to meet up with new friends and grab a bite. It was a fan favorite all around, they have a tapas and jazz night every friday which my wife and I really enjoyed. We had a wonderful time at this condo and hope to stay here again on our next trip to St. Maarten. It was everything we needed, and much more than we expected! Two thumbs up!"

  • The VEEEERY BEEEEST

    "We just got back from our wonderful stay here at Terre Basse. The location is amazing and you would never have to leave except to get groceries!!. Very private views amazing, especially sunset. Sharlene was good about checking on us during our stay. We rented car to check out island. Best restaurants are on French side. The home was very comfy and had everything you would need at your finger tips. The only way you could improve is if you included us on your trip. This place is GREAT!!!!!"
