  • A Trip to Paradise!!

    "Paradise Found was all we could have hoped for when traveling to St. Maarten. The owner went above and beyond our expectations with this beautiful unit and helping us plan a wonderful trip. It was fully equipped with everything we needed as well as very attractively decorated and spotless. We enjoyed the lovely view from the balcony which overlooked caribbean blue waters and the infinity pool below. There were so many activities to enjoy on the island so it was a treat to come back to relax at Paradise Found. We can certainly recommend this rental for anyone looking for a beautiful place to enjoy and relax in St. Maarten."

  • 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!"

  • Great place!

    "We just got back from this lovely condo. There was 4 of us in our party. The condo is in a gated area. Which we were surprised and happy to know how safe it was. I've been dealing with Sam (property manager)back and forth thru emails with questions and she responds back right away. She has been a great pleasure to deal with. The condo is huge, we never felt cramped like a hotel room. all the amenities listed were all there. If you rent a car, there's a parking spot right out front. There was an elevator to get to the 2nd floor. The balcony was spacious. Everything is walking distance from the condo. The balcony faces the pool. The beach is right across the street which we used everyday. There's beach chairs to rent from Buccaneers beach bar but lf you are ordering something from them it's free. There's a supermarket across the street. (Be prepared, prices were quite high but it's more for the convience) We didnt use the kitchen for cooking, but everything U need is there. The condo is very clean. I must say that we were very pleased and will return!"

  • Beacon Hill Seaside Retreat is truly a Gem

    "This is my second stay at this home in Beacon Hill. All of the rooms in the home are well apportioned. The kitchen has every gadget a cook could want, the bedrooms are all roomy with plenty of space and cabinetry, and updated beautifully. Love the auto shutters that were within the windows, not only to help darken a room, but to cool off the sun on days before we might turn on the air conditioning for an hour or so. The landscaping around the home is something I really enjoyed, need a little greenery to get me relaxed with a little wine at dusk, and the windex blue ocean waves really bring you into that relaxation zone, add a little music to the mix with the outdoor speakers were the icing on the cake. We love walking in that area,we tend to walk for one or two hours every morning, and it is easy to pick up a quick breakfast at the Maho Market to get your breakfast "fuel". We had one couple with us on this trip, had our first drinks at the Driftwood bar, then enjoyed watching some sporting events at Three Amigo's restaurant in Maho and had some really good appetizers there. Our favorite restaurant this trip was at Chesterfields in Phillipsburg, we all enjoyed our seafood dinners there, and shared a wonderful brownie and ice cream sundae afterwards. Spent a nice afternoon at Karakters, first enjoying some tapas, then went swimming for awhile, that was our favorite "beach" day. Can't wait to return to SXM, and all 4 of us agreed, Seaside Retreat is a place that they want to come back to."
