"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!"

"We stayed here from 04/04/15 to 04/11/15. This was my first Vacation Rental booking and one of the best vacation experiences I have had.
We met up with Gordon for a quick property orientation with valuable recommendations. After the orientation, we immediately went to Le Grand Marche (Supermarket) in Cole Bay and bought groceries and essentials. There are grocery stores nearby but if you have a car and want to save money, Le Grand Marche in Cole Bay is your best bet. Liquor is very cheap in Le Grand Marche.
I love the kitchen, fully stocked and with very sharp knives. Good blender for Piña Coladas or any frozen drinks. I’m a foodie and I love cooking; the kitchen was perfect for me. Place is very clean and neat. Very comfortable bed, my wife and I slept like babies. Waking up and walking out to the terrace and seeing the catamarans, sailboats and yachts docked was a bonus in terms of relaxation. We enjoy the beautiful sunset as well.
We felt very safe and the people around the area are friendly. There are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby including a McDonalds.
During the week we drove to The Rainbow Café in Grand Case for lunch, to Riu for a day pass in Anse Marcel, Maho Bay, Mullet Bay and Little Bay. Don’t Bother with RIU day pass, skip it and go to a nearby beach club instead.
If you don’t mind cooking and love great accommodation then don’t waste money on All-inclusive resorts or over price hotels with mediocre accommodations. In fact, Paradise Beach was a much better place and deal than one of Sandals Resort I went to. And if you are planning to stay in the new Riu All-Inclusive resort in St. Martin, you will most likely spent more than double the amount for a week stay just because food and beverages are included, and the type of room will most likely be a tiny garden view. That’s double the amount plus tax. That’s insane! Just cook your own food, buy your own alcohol, make your drink, and once in a while dine out. The experience will be much better and cost effective.
Please note Internet service in the island is slow and at times not reliable, both on the Dutch and French side. Good enough to browse, read and send emails.
I highly recommend this place and definitely come back to this place in a heart beat!
Thank you Jill for making our vacation perfect! Thank you, Gordon for the valuable recommendations."

"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."

"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."
