Beacon Hill Seaside Retreat is truly a Gem
"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."

"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."

"Sucks to be home - miss my lovely/beautiful Ocean's Edge condo on Simpson Bay! Yet another wonderful week of a release from reality of the cruel world came to an end. Gordon and Jill - thank you for making us feel like royalty. As usual, the condo was in pristine condition and truly feels like "my home" for a week. The condo has everything you need from A to Z. Upon arrival, Gordon briefs you on how everything works in the condo, where to shop for groceries, where to go for the best places to eat, updates on what is happening on the Island and much much more. Additionally, the team is but a phone call away (they even provide a local cell phone) if you need anything!! The beautiful beach is three steps down from your back deck and the ocean is 20 yards after that - is this not heaven????? If you are looking for 5 star digs and all that goes with it (including outlandish prices) look elsewhere. If you want to have a relaxing romantic (I'm lucky my lady loves this place) getaway, Ocean's Edge is the place for you! As from my last review (see below) - there is so much or so little to do at Ocean's Edge. Am I a cheerleader for Ocean's Edge and the company that manages the condo - you bet I am - they are a huge part of making your vacation so special. We will be back in June for a 2 week stay! Thanks again gang - you are the best!"

"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!"
