Recent Simpson Bay reviews
You cannot beat the view or the beach
"My wife and enjoyed Island Mermaid as it is a spectacular condo in an awesome location. The views from the balcony of the passing yachts onto Simpson Bay harbour, hills to the left that remind you of Italy with the colourful villas and a view of the bay all the way to left where you can see the airport. The condo itself is like visiting an art museum, so much eclectic collecting has been done by the owner if it is a rainy day you can still be entertained without leaving. Yes the back alley is another world, nothing but a plus in my mind. If you are new to the caribbean it may be a shock, but for those who know it is a way of life and another experience to enjoy. Roosters and friendly stray dogs provide a nice change form cars and other urban noises and we enjoyed them thoroughly. Walking down the beach to Karaker a converted school bus awesome beach from restaurant was a daily routine if we stayed in Simpson Bay. Not to mention the close proximity to all the restaurants in Simpson Bay made it at ought decision to stay in and cook dinner with a beautiful view from the balcony or head out. So we usually had wine and cheese until sun set and then off to a nice restaurant. Pineapple Petes may have had the best rack of lamb I have ever had. I would absolutely recommend this condo, and if you find anything you don't like stay another week because you are not relaxed enough yet : )"

"Just got back from our stay and already we are counting down the days until we go back. Condo was perfect! We have visited St Maarten 7 times and we always stay on Simpson bay beach but this was our first visit to this condo but definitely won't be our last. It had everything we could possibly have needed! Met some fantastic people in the complex as well. Communication with the owner was quick and pleasant and the condo was exactly as described. I dislike giving a good review though! I want to keep this place for myself!"

"My husband and I stayed 7 nights at Bella Mare in April, 2015. The unit was beautiful and well equipped. We had our own parking in front of the building and good security although we never felt unsafe. The views were amazing and the private terrace and deck complete with comfortable chairs made this the perfect getaway! Gordon was always available and grocery store, restaurants were very near by. It was very quiet and tranquil which was what we were looking for. If you are looking for nightlife within walking distance and lots of people around, this is not the place for you but if you are interested in rest and relaxation, Bella Mare is the best we have found in the Caribbean!"

"Sea Place Villa was by far the best place we have ever stayed in our entire lives! The unit is absolutely amazing and the views leave you speechless. Everywhere there is amazing views from the bedrooms to even the shower. The condo is incredibly well equipped, from the kitchen to all the equipment provided to enjoy a fabulous time on the white sandy beach which is just steps from the door. Very comfortable beds and furniture. We enjoyed sitting every evening on the balcony listening to all the waves. The ocean water was so warm and clean we spent most of our time in there, although the pool next door is also a nice way to cool down. The house keeper and building managers were so friendly and professional. The condo is in a very safe neighborhood all the locals are super friendly. We rented a car but you can easily get by without one, many stores are within easy walking distance, to do some more island sight seeing I would recommend a car. Be prepared for narrow roads. The restaurants in Saint Maarten are fantastic. Such amazing food! If you are into airplanes you have an amazing vantage from the condo to watch all the planes come in and take off. I would rent from Linda again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend 5 stars"
