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."

"We came to celebrate both oour birthdays, the location was great. Check in was a breeze with Jean Pierre. Loved the beaches on the island and will definately return to see the other 34 beaches we did not get a chance to see. Location was right on the beach and we loved listening to waves daily. Thank you again Jean Pierre and Martine!!!!!"

"This was our second stay at Villa Jade! Two couples each with a full master bedroom and bath. Used the kayaks 3 times to visit Pinel, used the kitchen to prepare two great dinners, and used the pool daily for a relaxing cool down. Villa's air conditioning provided a nice change from outside and each bedroom is individually controlled for your preference. Julie(the owner) was awesome while making reservations and was very accommodating to changes we had to make. Banana Location car rental contacted Philippe(our contact during our stay) when we arrived and made sure we made it to the villa safely. We loved every second of our stay here. Restaurants, shopping, activities are all a short drive away. You are never at a loss for things to do and if your are...just ask someone and they will point you in the right direction. Just one note for some...there was a lot of seaweed in front of the villa that sometimes resulted in a seaweed smell. Nothing you can control and something that never bothered us. Sad to leave, but there is always hope of a third return!!!"

"My wife and I have been to St. Marteen 3 time now and this villa was the best value so far. It does not have five star hotel quality but it does have the working man quality, its not the top of the line but it works. Just as stated on VRBO 3 bed, two bath with pool. During our stay the the brackets for the handheld shower heads fell off the wall, for both showers, the hardware just rusted away. The pool is small but it was clean and very nice for floating around in the evening trying to cool of the sunburn from the day at the beach. The things that happened to use while using this villa are the third that happen to you while living at home. The deck around the pool could use some TLC and the ladder was not secured well enough for me to use. The top step fastener was missing one of its nut.
Just a little while before getting there the previous renter brought a cat and it had kittens while there. I did not realize that cats came with the place when I rented it. I'm sure that they will become more strays for the island.
The location to the beach from here is awesome, 5 min walk. There are shops and restaurants just down the road. You could actually stay at this villa without a car. A nice little market is on the way to the beach.
All in all it was clean, decorated, well equipped and charming. If I were to go back with a group of people or family this would be the place."
