  • Beautiful Villa! More than we expected

    "My girlfriends and I (8 of us) decided on Rick's Seaside Retreat for our girls vacation. This place did not disappoint, the Jacuzzi tubs were just what we needed after a day of sightseeing. The rooms were spacious and beautiful, the kitchen had everything we needed to make a meal. The only thing negative I could say was the gas took longer than what I'm used to with electric. The villa's view I feel is second to none, and I can't think of a better place to have spent my birthday. Jenny was a jewel and we were thankful for her insights and suggestions. Rick, you and Marie have a beautiful home and I thank you for allowing us to experience a bit of paradise."

  • Great Vacation at Villa Caribbean Jewel!!

    "My family and I just returned from a week at the Villa Caribbean Jewel. We had a wonderful time! The Villa is absolutely beautiful. The bedrooms are large and comfortable with a wonderful breeze coming through at all times. There are air conditioner units in each of the bedrooms that we used at night and it really cooled down. The remodeling of the kitchen is beautiful and has everything you need. We had a total of 10 people and everyone was extremely comfortable. All the linens and towels are provided in the house--even beach towels. The view from the pool area is breathtaking. Ginny, the owner, is wonderful to work with. And Ursula, the on-site housekeeper is great. She was so helpful, made us dinner one night, and had a ton of good information. We visited a lot of the beaches and restaurants that Ginny has listed on her info sheet and all were excellent recommendations. This was the perfect vacation and we'll definitely go back!"

  • Great Budget Rental for Couple

    "We had a fabulous stay in Maho at this rental! The room was just big enough for us (a couple) and we loved the property. The resort was very nice and the pool/bar area was very conveniently located on the property. We took a taxi from the airport to the resort, but took the local buses around the island for the rest of the trip (for about $1.50/person each way to wherever we were going), which was very convenient and economical! Buses run nearly all day and we could get one any time we needed by walking over to Maho Village. We visited a few places around the Dutch side of the island and never needed a car for anything we wanted to do or see. We went to Phillipsburg for some duty-free shopping (but make sure to go on a day when shops are all open and there is at least one cruise ship!) and jet skiing for only $50/half an hour for two people on a jet ski. We ate at The Blue Bitch Bar and it was excellent. We went to Simpson Bay and went on the Aquamania Lambada Boat Tour to Prickly Pear and Anguilla--HIGHLY recommend this day trip with a great barbecue lunch and open bar on the boat!! We went to dinner at Lee's and lunch at Topper's in Simpson Bay, which were both great. We had great french pastries and desserts at La Sucriere and The Taste Factory, also in Simpson Bay. In Maho, we went to the Casino Royale, which was the best casino on the island. We ate at Sunset Beach bar, Sopranos, and Fashion Cafe, and had great drinks at The Dream (at the resort) and Driftwood Boat Bar (strongest rum punch we had!). The listing for this rental was very accurate. The condo was small, but we knew that when we booked the property. The rental was exactly as pictured and included all items listed in the description, which was great. The property was very clean and uncluttered, leaving us room to fit all of our things in the condo. Terry was very helpful in answering our questions about the island and provided us with a great list of restaurants, shopping, casinos, recreation, etc. before the trip so we could plan ahead. He was readily available when I called with questions before and after we booked with him. I will definitely recommend this property to anyone going to St. Maarten. Terry was great to work with and I would recommend any of his properties to friends and family!"

  • Smiles from all three couples as we entered the property and saw the colorful patio and pool.

    "What a charming villa! The property manager greeted us upon arrival. The pool was sparkling, the sun deck large and all plants well manicured. We entered the villa and all bedrooms were excellent. Everyone commented on the comfort of the beds. The kitchen was well equipped and we had a washer and dryer. Although the villa had a nice dining room and living room; we found ourselves each evening sitting on the large terrace enjoying the view and having refreshments before going to dinner. The terrace had a grille and cooking area for the outdoor chef in the family on one end and a dining table on the other, but we enjoyed the couches with center table the most, as we sat and chatted about our day. As a home owner with a pool, I appreciated the sparkling pool water and the perfect upkeep. With just a few minutes walk to the village restaurants and beach; this villa was perfect! We enjoyed going for a short walk each morning for coffee and pastries at the nearby French restaurant. Vincent, the property owner, was quick getting back to us regarding any questions. Once the contract was submitted to us, it was very informative to protect the owner and the renter. We visited several VRBO villas before deciding on this one and are so happy with our decision. On our last day, everyone said "I am not ready to go back. I so enjoyed this villa. It was so close to everything." We will be back! Thanks to the owner and property manager for making our "vacay" a perfect trip!!!!"
