  • We Wouldn't Stay Anywhere Else

    "This was our second stay at Son Risa. The condo is located on the Dutch side but is easily accessible to the French side. There are many great restaurants and beaches close by and the condo is beautiful and well-maintained. It was just my husband and I, but with the pull-out sofa bed in the living room it's big enough to accommodate four. We're bummed we could only stay 7 nights but console ourselves with the hope of returning in 2015. As far as we're concerned this condo offers the best amenities and value on the island. Many thanks for more happy memories!"

  • All we can say is WOW!

    "What a spectacular villa. From the moment we drove through the impressive entry gates and walked through the front door, we knew that we had arrived at some place special. As we entered the front door, we were greeted by Heather & Aldrin with cool, scented towels, which were amazingly refreshing after our cross country journey to get there. But then it got even better. Walking down the stairs (which are covered with a glass ceiling) and stepping in to the main salon, we were captivated by the sweeping sea view and the expansive outdoor terraces. Although the pictures on-line are beautiful, they don't begin to compare to the reality of being there in person. The villa is furnished with impecable taste. We have rented other villas in the past which were nice, but they did not have the same level of sophistication as Mille Fleurs. We were impressed with the furnishings in each of the bedrooms and the beautiful artwork everywhere. We were told that the villa dates back to the late 80s. But with its French Colonial style and grand spaces, it feels like it has been there much longer. It looks and feels exactly like what you would expect a grand old Caribbean home to be like. There were eight in our party and with all the various sitting areas around the pool, it was easy to find your own space to relax or read a book by yourself if you wanted. Of course, our favorite place to be was in the infinity-edged pool watching the boats go by during the day and the amazing sunsets in the evening. Watching the big cruise ships glide past the villa in the evening with their lights on was also a sight to behold. We were pampered all week by Heather who does an amazing job maintaining the villa. And Aldrin does a great job maintaining the gardens--which are extensive (the property is over two acres). He was very nice and we ejoyed talking gardening stories with him. We had some wonderful meals at some great restaurants (Tropicana was our favorite), but to be honest, our favorite meals were the ones we prepared and enjoyed together at the villa. The dining table is outside under a covered roof and we enjoyed dining alfresco in the warm evening air. The week went by much too quickly. And as we were saying our goodbyes to Heather & Aldrin, we wished that we could have had more time to enjoy Mille Fleurs and this wonderful island. We're already thinking about our return."

  • Thanksgiving 2014 in SXM at Tropical Beach Paradise

    "We rented this villa for Thanksgiving 2014, it was very clean, and private we loved it. The views are amazing, and we were just steps from the ocean. The pools are wonderful and the accommodations were just right for our family. There were 6 of us and we had a great time! The weather was perfect. The caretakers James and Pauline were very helpful, and always could direct us when we had questions on how to find a place. Also, Hans has 2 wonderful dogs that are around the property, on occasion one would keep us company and she was sweet, reminded us of our pups at home."

  • Great Budget Rental for Couple

    "We had a fabulous stay in Maho at this rental! The room was just big enough for us (a couple) and we loved the property. The resort was very nice and the pool/bar area was very conveniently located on the property. We took a taxi from the airport to the resort, but took the local buses around the island for the rest of the trip (for about $1.50/person each way to wherever we were going), which was very convenient and economical! Buses run nearly all day and we could get one any time we needed by walking over to Maho Village. We visited a few places around the Dutch side of the island and never needed a car for anything we wanted to do or see. We went to Phillipsburg for some duty-free shopping (but make sure to go on a day when shops are all open and there is at least one cruise ship!) and jet skiing for only $50/half an hour for two people on a jet ski. We ate at The Blue Bitch Bar and it was excellent. We went to Simpson Bay and went on the Aquamania Lambada Boat Tour to Prickly Pear and Anguilla--HIGHLY recommend this day trip with a great barbecue lunch and open bar on the boat!! We went to dinner at Lee's and lunch at Topper's in Simpson Bay, which were both great. We had great french pastries and desserts at La Sucriere and The Taste Factory, also in Simpson Bay. In Maho, we went to the Casino Royale, which was the best casino on the island. We ate at Sunset Beach bar, Sopranos, and Fashion Cafe, and had great drinks at The Dream (at the resort) and Driftwood Boat Bar (strongest rum punch we had!). The listing for this rental was very accurate. The condo was small, but we knew that when we booked the property. The rental was exactly as pictured and included all items listed in the description, which was great. The property was very clean and uncluttered, leaving us room to fit all of our things in the condo. Terry was very helpful in answering our questions about the island and provided us with a great list of restaurants, shopping, casinos, recreation, etc. before the trip so we could plan ahead. He was readily available when I called with questions before and after we booked with him. I will definitely recommend this property to anyone going to St. Maarten. Terry was great to work with and I would recommend any of his properties to friends and family!"
