Second stay, just as good as the first
"This was our second stay in this unit and it was just as good as the first time. Tim is a great owner and very responsive to all questions from the time we contacted him to book until we just returned.
The unit is clean, spacious and well stocked. It is right on the beach with steps to the sand. While everyone was running to the bar for happy hour to buy overpriced drinks we were walking a few steps to our fridge.
The location of this hotel is amazing as there is literally everything within walking distance from restaurants, bars, and food stores.
We do rent a car and enjoy driving the island to explore and are very happy with the secured parking lot and the security staff at the hotel.
You cannot go wrong with renting this unit. Enjoy."

"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!"

"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."

"Thank you Gordon and team for another wonderful vacation in our favorite location, Simpson Bay. The condo was immaculate, as expected, well furnished and well equipped. We take vacations to relax, unwind and be on "our" time. Can't beat being literally steps away from the sand and surf on a very deserted beach. No crowds, no fighting over chairs - just pure heaven being alone with the love of my life! What did we do for 12 days - not sure other then enjoying each others company! We did go to Karakter, about 100 yards on the beach west of the condo, a favorite of ours for over a year now. Had a stunning fish dinner, ate tapas one night and two delicious lunches and many many of their wonderful drinks. Go casual, the staff are barefoot! Atlantico, a French bakery about 1/2 mile away on Airport Road, has the best fresh baguettes, a daily trip for me to get our breakfast and eat on the back deck of the condo. In fact we never ate in the house - only on the back deck! The only planned activity was a sunset cruise on the sailing schooner Passaat. Not to be missed if you love sailing. Don't worry, Gordon will give you a detailed briefing after you arrive on how everything works in the condo and where great restaurants are, grocery stores and anything else you can think of. In closing - we are already booked in Oceans Edge for mid Sept - 3 months and counting - does that tell you something about the condo and how much we enjoy the property!!!!"
