  • FABULOUS!!!

    "Our first time to this lovely island and we have NOT one complaint. The condo is beautiful and equipped with everything that you need plus! The location is great...enjoyed being able to walk to nearby restaurants/bars and grocery stores. Fun to walk across street and watch the boats/yachts come in at night. Our guys brought their fishing poles and tried to catch one of those tarpens which was a simple walk to the bridge. The beds are so comfortable and love the deck, but most of all 10 steps and your on the beach!!! Our trip was truly one of our best and we hope to return soon!!! Thank you Tim for sharing your beautiful condo!!!"

  • Perfect spot. Great Condo.

    "Our family of 4, (Mom, Dad, 2 teenagers) stayed here for 2 weeks for our family vacation and we just couldn't have asked for a better setup. I'll start with a bit about the condo itself: The condo is perfect for a family like ours, with a master suite downstairs (privacy!), and 2 bedrooms upstairs, (1 large, one smaller) with a full bath on the 2nd floor. It also has a half bath off the living room for convenience. The balconies on both floors offer great views of the ocean, and our kids really enjoyed sitting outside and watching the yachts go by, and in the distance occasionally a cruise ship on its way to Phillipsburg. Pretty cool. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything you need for a quick breakfast, as well as the kitchen tools you'd need to make a full-on meal, (which we did on a couple of nights). The condo has wi-fi, (which all of us really appreciated) as well as a DVD player, Bose dock and all the comforts of home. Everything was exceptionally clean and we really appreciated the little touches like abundant baskets of beach towels and brochures of local restaurants and activities. Now for the location: AMAZING!!! Simpson Bay Beach is a real gem. It seems to be primarily a locals beach, as it is quiet and mostly used by the folks that live or rent along it, this gives it a real relaxing and fun vibe... The beach is just a few steps from the condo, just past the beautiful pool and through the privacy gate. The sand is white, and the beach is about 2 miles long... perfect for a walk in the morning or as a perfect vantage point for taking in the incredible sunsets. (We did this most nights!) Just down the beach to the right is a fantastic beach bar/restaurant called Karakter, which you really shouldn't miss. We spent a LOT of time there, and our teens really liked strolling down there on their own to meet up with new friends and grab a bite. It was a fan favorite all around, they have a tapas and jazz night every friday which my wife and I really enjoyed. We had a wonderful time at this condo and hope to stay here again on our next trip to St. Maarten. It was everything we needed, and much more than we expected! Two thumbs up!"

  • Marvelous!!!

    "My family and I absolutely fell in love with Bella Mare and St. Maarten. The condo is wonderful and very safe. It is also convienent. There are many restaurants and shops close by and the view is amazing. One of my favorite parts of the trip was to wake up and go outside on the lanai and have breakfast while listening to the waves. The sunset at night is so relaxing. The condo is well-equipped and very roomy. My husband is disabled and appreciated the single story accommodations. Would highly recommend this villa!!! We can't wait to come back!"

  • 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 : )"
