Recent St Maarten reviews
"The place was really great - just as advertised, really well laid out and thoughfully equipped. Dora and Phillipe are great to deal with.
For getting around the Island - figure out the Minibus - Taxis are VERY expensive. Hilda's Windsor Castle in Simpson Bay is the Bomb! and Elvis at Sky's the Limit in Grand Case - big thumbs up for local, or "LoLo" food. Take cash if you're exploring the island - not all machines work. The French side is more Lonely Planet style traveler - bit more earthy. Check out SO French near the apartment. It lives up to the name. Some of the best Foie Gras I've had on 3 continents.
The walk up the hill? Sure, it can be a bit of a thing if you're sunstroked and tired at the end of the day. But truly, it wasn't that bad. If it weren't for that hill, I'd have gotten fat with all the good French food I ate.
For god's sake remember to wear sunscreen and a hat, and like anyone who's read Hitchiker's Guide to the Universe knows, know where your towel is. They cost 4 Euros on Orient beach. I know where mine is: I left it on Dora and Phillipe's railing :D"

"Another perfect vacation on St. Maarten!! Our second time staying at Twin Palms and again hated to leave!
The experience from the owners accommodating our mid week schedule, Rosey always keeping the villa perfect and Vikki making sure everything was right - made for a perfect week. It was truly a pleasure to rent there!!
I would also recommend "shop and Drop" for groceries, a great way to start the trip!
Thanks for allowing us to rent your Villa!!!!!!!!!!!

"My husband and I stayed here for a 11 nights and had the best time ever! We're both in our mid 30's and found the location perfect for partying and relaxing. It's walking distance to the beach and watching the planes fly in was great! We kept an eye out for our friends plane and when we saw them land, we had enough time to walk to our car drive to the airport and pick them up!
Additionally the captain and property manager were super on point and attentive. We definitely plan on staying here again!"

"The studio is wonderfully located in Orient Bay. You are near coffee, lunch/dinner, desserts and a grocery store. In addition, the Village of 5 wonderful restaurants (French, Italian, Thai) is only a 1 minute walk from the apartment. Lastly, the spectacular Orient Beach is only a 2 minute walk from the apartment. All you need to experience Orient Beach/Bay is within a 2 minute walk in either direction, but if you feel like exploring, it also offers the opportunity to be close to Grand Case, Dawn Beach and Marigot. Delphine was great and very accommodating. She also gave excellent local recommendations. Fantastic vacation!"
