Recent Simpson Bay reviews

  • A wonderful week!

    "A wonderfully relaxing week as we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. Linda has provided nearly everything you could possibly need. This is a lovely 1st floor condo in a quiet, local neighborhood (not resort). We prefer to explore neighborhoods and local culture when we visit new places. I was worried that this might be too close to the airport, but that was not the case. This is within walking distance to karakter and cafe atlantico - both wonderful! I think Simpson Bay is perfect location, somewhat protected on the south side, and a favorite mooring place for yachts and sailboats. The beach directly in front of the condo is rocky and has lots of sea grass...walk just a few minutes for a nice sandy beach. We hired a local photographer to take sunset pictures in Mullet Bay https://www.facebook.com/LiliPetersonPhoto and a local professional massage therapist atouchofhandz.com for a couples massage in the condo. Good local options if you are looking for things in the "romantic category" We spent a day on Celine Too...a wonderful trip to Tintamarre - snorkeling, mud baths, swimming, awesome food and drink and the crew is really top notch. Highly recommend. Come back home to a peaceful condo, beautiful walkout view of simpson bay and the best vacation ever. Thank you Linda!"

  • Better than All-Inclusive resort Suite

    "We stayed here from 04/04/15 to 04/11/15. This was my first Vacation Rental booking and one of the best vacation experiences I have had. We met up with Gordon for a quick property orientation with valuable recommendations. After the orientation, we immediately went to Le Grand Marche (Supermarket) in Cole Bay and bought groceries and essentials. There are grocery stores nearby but if you have a car and want to save money, Le Grand Marche in Cole Bay is your best bet. Liquor is very cheap in Le Grand Marche. I love the kitchen, fully stocked and with very sharp knives. Good blender for Piña Coladas or any frozen drinks. I’m a foodie and I love cooking; the kitchen was perfect for me. Place is very clean and neat. Very comfortable bed, my wife and I slept like babies. Waking up and walking out to the terrace and seeing the catamarans, sailboats and yachts docked was a bonus in terms of relaxation. We enjoy the beautiful sunset as well. We felt very safe and the people around the area are friendly. There are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby including a McDonalds. During the week we drove to The Rainbow Café in Grand Case for lunch, to Riu for a day pass in Anse Marcel, Maho Bay, Mullet Bay and Little Bay. Don’t Bother with RIU day pass, skip it and go to a nearby beach club instead. If you don’t mind cooking and love great accommodation then don’t waste money on All-inclusive resorts or over price hotels with mediocre accommodations. In fact, Paradise Beach was a much better place and deal than one of Sandals Resort I went to. And if you are planning to stay in the new Riu All-Inclusive resort in St. Martin, you will most likely spent more than double the amount for a week stay just because food and beverages are included, and the type of room will most likely be a tiny garden view. That’s double the amount plus tax. That’s insane! Just cook your own food, buy your own alcohol, make your drink, and once in a while dine out. The experience will be much better and cost effective. Please note Internet service in the island is slow and at times not reliable, both on the Dutch and French side. Good enough to browse, read and send emails. I highly recommend this place and definitely come back to this place in a heart beat! Thank you Jill for making our vacation perfect! Thank you, Gordon for the valuable recommendations."

  • Very friendly place

    "Spent 2 weeks in a 1 bedroom unit It was perfect for myself, husband & our little dog "Roxanne". We rented a car for the 2 weeks, however, didn't really need it everyday. The beach was lovely & the staff outstanding. Also, met lovely people from Australia and Connecticut we enjoyed hanging out with. Big hello to Ricky & Mark (whom was not there in our time period ). Will definitely try to return one day! !! Thanks to everyone! !!"

  • Marvelous!!!

    "My family and I absolutely fell in love with Bella Mare and St. Maarten. The condo is wonderful and very safe. It is also convienent. There are many restaurants and shops close by and the view is amazing. One of my favorite parts of the trip was to wake up and go outside on the lanai and have breakfast while listening to the waves. The sunset at night is so relaxing. The condo is well-equipped and very roomy. My husband is disabled and appreciated the single story accommodations. Would highly recommend this villa!!! We can't wait to come back!"
