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!"

"Our family stayed at the Sandpiper for a week and enjoyed every day of it. The view was spectacular. Pool was quiet and relaxing. The property was well maintained and beautifully decorated. The property manager was very conscientous in providing suggestions on restaurants, activities, etc. The only minor annoyance were the chickens across the street, but by Day 2 we kindof enjoyed them. The bedroom facing them kept the air conditioning on at night to avoid that noise. Would definitely stay here again. It was a slice of heaven!"

"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!"

"This was our second stay in this unit and it was just as good as the first time. Tim is a great owner and very responsive to all questions from the time we contacted him to book until we just returned.
The unit is clean, spacious and well stocked. It is right on the beach with steps to the sand. While everyone was running to the bar for happy hour to buy overpriced drinks we were walking a few steps to our fridge.
The location of this hotel is amazing as there is literally everything within walking distance from restaurants, bars, and food stores.
We do rent a car and enjoy driving the island to explore and are very happy with the secured parking lot and the security staff at the hotel.
You cannot go wrong with renting this unit. Enjoy."
