  • The Best Ever!

    "Arrived to cold beer and waters in our fridge, a fully equipped kitchen with many of the basics already provided, accommodations emaculate and nicely furnished, and Gordon to orient us to our surroundings. Finished our day off with our neighbor, Alex, and his frozen margaritas on the beach! What a fantastic welcome! Nearby tenants very pleasant as well. And the good kept on coming thruout the 2 weeks of our stay! It was ALL GOOD! Will definitely return. P.S. Both Jill and Gordon were of an immense help in handling all of our needs from beginning to end. THANK YOU THANK YOU!"

  • 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 : )"

  • Honeymoon in a Heavenly Space!

    "My husband and I had a wonderful time on our honeymoon here! The apartment was extremely spacious with a fantastic view of the ocean and all the amenities needed to enjoy an evening at home watching the sunset from the balcony. We had a great time exploring the neighborhood too. The apartment is very close to many delicious restaurants, delectable bakeries and several good markets. We felt very safe walking to and from the apartment after dinner and would often be greeted by the neighbors. We could walk right onto the beach from our building whenever we felt like it or go swimming in the pool. My husband loved snorkeling right outside the apartment and I enjoyed the long walks on the soft sand. We had an absolutely fabulous time."

  • Lovely Condo

    "We stayed here for one week from 12/9/14 to 12/16/14. The villa is exactly as pictured in the new pictures. Everything worked as it should and the house was well stocked. The beds were comfortable and the living room furniture was functional. The two TV's worked well and the internet service was adequate enough to get emails easily - surfing the web was slow though. It was very convenient to the new causeway which made getting to the French side a breeze. Access to the beach was easy and secure. There were several well stocked grocery stores close by - all great pluses. We had only two issues with the unit. First was parking. The designated spot for this unit is the end spot in front of the building. There is a concrete wall on one side and the spot next to it was occupied by a full time resident with a very large Ram pickup truck with a motorcycle parked in front of it. It stuck out very far making swinging into the spot from the one way street extremely difficult. It always took multiple back and forth swings with one person directing from the street especially if a local resident parked across the street from the parking spot. Our car was on the larger side for island rentals so it might not be as bad with a compact car but it really wasn't fun getting in and out of the spot. We often dreaded going out for that reason. The other issue was the lack of shade. Some might love this but we were hoping that the covered patio and balcony would have offered shade for more of the day. There was no shade after 10:30AM until sunset on either the ground floor patio or upstairs balcony. There are no umbrellas on the pool deck so if you cannot tolerate continuous sun you are out of luck. There are beach chairs and sand umbrellas available but there was no real beach in front of the unit the week we were there. That changes throughout the year but was not good when we were there. Despite our two issues we still had a lovely week at the condo. We might not stay there again but would recommend it to others as long as the parking and sun/shade were mentioned ahead of time and everyone was okay with it. The views of the boats on the bay overlooking Saba were tremendous and the sunsets awesome."
