  • Big expectations met!

    "My husband and I along with another couple rented this condo from 3/1-3/8/14. Tim was great to be in contact with. Always answered emails in a timely fashion. It was our very first experience with a vrbo and am really happy it was such a good one. From the time we pulled up out front till the morning we had to leave, the service/place was wonderful. After seeing the pictures online, we had some high expectations. We got to the door and my husband entered first and said "close your eyes", then preceded to lead me in. Wow! Was wonderful to open my eyes to the beautiful view out the living room window. Just like the pictures! We made our breakfasts every morning. There is a nice variety of pans, skillets, glasses, plates, etc. The tile floor is so nice to sweep up with sand being impossible to keep out. We enjoyed our stay tremendously. We ate at several places close by, with my favorite being Izzi's Italian Restaurant. We spent many hours right out front on the beach. It was 12 "man size" steps from the patio to the water! Can't get any better. We met many other nice people on the beach too. The pool was great and seemed like they took very good care of it. The people at the desk were wonderful, introducing themselves upon arrival. All in all, it was a great place! We hope to return again one day! It was really a treat being on the first floor. We don't think it would have been the same to be up a few floors. Thanks, Tim, for letting us call your place home for a week!"

  • Absolutely Fabulous

    "That was the best vacation ever! The property is amazing and exactly as pictured, however, pictures of outside cannot fully express how fabulous the location itself is! It is literally on a beach with just 30 steps to the water. You have everything you need there to enjoy your stay. We highly recommend this place and hope to be back there again. Thanks a million to the Owner! It's just simply perfect!"

  • Another wonderful relaxing stay in Bella Mare

    "Our second stay in the condo. Pictures can lie, or in the case of Bella Mare, not even come close to showing the true beauty of the condo, both inside and out. The condo contains everything you need - and more - for a week plus stay. For our second stay we brought our favorite coffee and fewer clothes - in a role on each! That is how well self-contained the condo is. The staff makes your entire stay seamless - from A to Z. Special thanks to Lori & Gordon - you folks are wonderful. They provided all kind of tips from shopping, eating and my favorite - beach bars! If you are a go-go-go person, get a hotel. If you want to relax, enjoy your heavenly surroundings, feel at home and most importantly, like each other's company - go for Bella Mare! The worst part of the stay - was leaving! Many thanks to the owners for providing a piece of paradise."

  • What a wonderful piece of paradise!

    "We spent a very enjoyable and relaxing 10 days at the Seaside Palm Beach condo in March. The condo was so comfortable and had absolutely everything we needed. The internet and cable TV were appreciated. We especially enjoyed our morning walks on Simpson Bay Beach, which we found to be the most beautiful beach we saw during our visit to St. Maarten. The turquoise blue ocean was super warm as was the pool so we made good use of the beach and lounge chairs provided with the condo. The veranda was a great place to enjoy our morning coffee and sip wine during the sunsets. We also walked to several restaurants and supermarkets which were anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes away. Richard was very helpful and made this vacation arrangement really easy. Vanka, the condo manager, was really nice and was always a phone call away using cell phone provided with the condo. She recommended several restaurants and sightseeing sights to us during our visit."

Simpson Bay Travel Tips

Simpson Bay Resorts on Antilles Island

Envision horseback riding along a sandy shore with the sun setting on the horizon, and you will have the ideal image of your Simpson Bay resorts vacation. Simpson Bay is located on the Dutch portion of St. Maarten, Antilles. The Antilles are broken into two sides, the Dutch and the French. St. Martin, Antilles is part of the western shore of the Greater Antilles Island. Though it is not a well-known fact, this island is the smallest land mass that two nations share peacefully. Long ago the two nations made an agreement that has allowed both to control portions of the Caribbean resort destination.

Yacht Sightings by Simpson Bay Lodging

Simpson Bay lodging sits above the largest lagoon in the western Caribbean. Simpson Bay Lagoon is shared equally with Saint Martin and St. Maarten. The larger land mass surrounding the lagoon is Saint Martin, the French nation. From St. Maarten rentals, you can watch mega-yachts come through one of the two draw bridges. The bridges are the only way to get into the lagoon as they sit over two narrow canals. Thousands of yachts visit Simpson Bay each year, especially during the summer months. You can also take the trip through the canal by booking a trip through Simpson Bay resorts.

Horseback Rides to St. Maarten Rentals

If you desire a glimpse of the sea around you from a higher altitude, leave your Simpson Bay lodging for the Seaside Nature Park. The nature park is on the Dutch side of St. Maarten, where natural beauty is only eclipsed by the amazing sunsets. Consider packing a picnic dinner at your St. Maarten rentals before going to the park. You can horseback ride, hike or stroll around Cay Bay which is part of the park before watching the sunset. Also consider spending the morning at the park to catch the sunrise.

Fun for the Family at Simpson Bay Resorts

Simpson Bay resorts are for the entire family with pirate treasure hunts, pizza, and soda offered in St. Maarten. Children can even take a pony ride along the shore of Simpson Bay Lagoon before relaxing by the pool at Simpson Bay lodging. St. Maarten rentals are close to many beach bars like Miss Lolo. Parents can feel secure in spending an hour or two at the bars after the children are asleep at this tropical destination.
