"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!"

"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!"

"This is the second time I have rented from VBRO in St Maarten. This was a great until and a great value! Perfect and tons of privacy for 2 couples. I would stay here again in a heartbeat
Views- ground and second floor- Incredible!
Beds- the most comfortable ever! Last place I rented was way more high end but the beds were uncomfortable. This bed and feather pillows made my trip
Ocean- Some say you have to walk down a way to get into the water. Not true. Some parts look like rocks but are actually just plants and you can walk right in
Hurricane shutters- We felt secure at night with these things closed. They also made the room fairly dark. I have realized that rentals on VBRO don't believe in block out shades. We stayed in Anguilla before we came here and no block out shades/shutters meant they room was unbelievably bright at 6am. People want to sleep in on vacation, right?
Gordon- Great property mgr. Even left us some goodies at arrival (water and beer) Thanks Gordon!
Phones- Free cell phone so people at home can call you at no charge, and the VOIP phone in the condo meant we could call home at no charge
The only, and I mean only con I had for this property was that the internet is really, really slow. If you need to be connected or have teenagers with you that need to be connected, you might want to chose another rental. We really struggled with this
PS. Worst meal was Karataker (beach bar you can walk to) Last time I was in SXM I tried it out and it was the same. Don't go.....cool atmosphere but the food isn't good. Don't know why so many people recommend it
- Pizza Galley- Simpson Bay. Best Pizza I have ever had
- Izi- Great Italian in Simpson Bay- Try their mix and match pastas and sauces
- Crave- Great gourmet food in Simpson bay. Casual but elegant
- Best beach bars (Buccaneer in Simpson bay and Rainbow Cafe in Grand Case)
- Best Bakery- Cafe Atlantico- You can walk to it. They also serve full breakfast and amazing and cheap sandwiches"

"My wife and I have been going to SXM for 6 years now and have stayed at various parts of the island. This is the second time we have stayed in this resort, and it's really a great place to be. Scott is very easy going, and Mary makes the booking process completely painless. the place is very well appointed, and Scott has thought of all the little extras that make it comfortable. Even after 5 weeks we weren't ready to leave, and we have already booked for the upcoming season. Unfortunately i was a bit slow on the draw and couldn't get this same unit again, but we will definitely book with Scott again. Thanks again for the use of your piece of paradise."
