"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!"

"We were looking for an up to date, well maintained location with easy access to the beach. We were not disappointed, as this rental was all of that and more. Everything was as advertised in the listing. The unit is secure, well maintained and has a great kitchen. It was so easy to walk in from the beach to grab a snack and be able to walk right back out. The beach is large, clean and quiet. On most days we felt like we were the only ones out there. The water was calm, free of seaweed and no rocks to worry about. We took our 14 year old and the three of us had plenty of room. The local cell phone, wifi and internet phone that were included were all a plus. The property manager did a great job in the 'orientation', giving us many valuable tips for enjoying the island and getting settled (groceries, dining, excursions, etc.)."

"We stayed in Van's unit with our family over Christmas and New Year's two years ago and it was one of the most memorable family vacations we have had. I beg to differ with the ONE negative review. Van is EXTREMELY attentive to the needs of his renters. Any issues we had were dealt with immediately by Van and the staff. We have nothing but wonderful things to say about the property and his attentiveness to detail. We have been to St. Maarten many times and our best trip was spent in his unit."

"Sucks to be home - miss my lovely/beautiful Ocean's Edge condo on Simpson Bay! Yet another wonderful week of a release from reality of the cruel world came to an end. Gordon and Jill - thank you for making us feel like royalty. As usual, the condo was in pristine condition and truly feels like "my home" for a week. The condo has everything you need from A to Z. Upon arrival, Gordon briefs you on how everything works in the condo, where to shop for groceries, where to go for the best places to eat, updates on what is happening on the Island and much much more. Additionally, the team is but a phone call away (they even provide a local cell phone) if you need anything!! The beautiful beach is three steps down from your back deck and the ocean is 20 yards after that - is this not heaven????? If you are looking for 5 star digs and all that goes with it (including outlandish prices) look elsewhere. If you want to have a relaxing romantic (I'm lucky my lady loves this place) getaway, Ocean's Edge is the place for you! As from my last review (see below) - there is so much or so little to do at Ocean's Edge. Am I a cheerleader for Ocean's Edge and the company that manages the condo - you bet I am - they are a huge part of making your vacation so special. We will be back in June for a 2 week stay! Thanks again gang - you are the best!"
