  • A great vacation!

    "This was our sixth vacation on the island but our first time staying on the French side. On all previous trips we stayed in a time-share near Cupecoy. The booking process was easy. The owners, Tony and Brent, were very responsive throughout, including providing us with directions, information and even recommendations for dining and things to do on the island. We had a little trouble finding the property. Laurence, the owner's representative on the island, was very nice and met us at a nearby pharmacy and led us to the property and gave us a quick tour of the unit and explained how things in it worked. The unit was exactly as it appears in the pictures - clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. All of the appliances, both large and small, worked and the unit is fully stocked with dishes, glasses, cookware and utensils. We've stayed in timeshares with refrigerators that froze everything, stoves that didn't work and had a a dozen spoons and no knives, so this was a very nice experience. It was also wonderful to have a washing machine in the unit and there is a drying rack provided. There had been a storm in October that impacted the cable and phone lines for large areas of the island. As a result, the TV reception was limited to a couple channels with very grainy pictures but clear audio. We had WiFi the first day but not afterwards. The owners were very responsive to our inquiries and tried to do what they could but we understood that these things were beyond their control. We made good use of the library of DVDs they have but also brought some of our own. We were able to access WiFi in some restaurants to check emails. The view from the balcony is gorgeous and because the condo faces east we were treated to a spectacular sunrise every morning. We had no problems with hot water per a previous reviewer's complaint. Tips - Rent a car. The complex is a distance from the nearest grocery store and quite a walk down the beach to the nearest restaurants. The complex is also quite hilly with a lot of stairs so pack lightly. On a personal note to animal lovers - the island, like much of the Caribbean, has a problem with homeless dogs and cats. We make a point to buy food to give them. It doesn't solve the problem but hope that it gives them some relief."

  • Third stay here and it's still perfect.

    "I am a regular visitor to SXM and consider myself very fortunate to have stayed here three times now. I know that myself and previous reviewers have stated over and over how great this place is, but it can't hurt to mention it again...especially if it's true! From the moment you arrive, it just feels like home. The unit is spotless, the furnishings are modern, tasteful, and comfortable, the kitchen has everything you could need, and having your own washer and dryer is a major plus! Also provided for your use are beach chairs, a cooler, beach towels, and umbrella. The fantastic view and refreshing breezes make the balconies the perfect place for your morning coffee. The location is very quiet and secure, yet close to everything the island has to offer. Beaches, grocery stores, restaurants, clubs, bars, etc are all just a couple minutes away. On top of the condo itself being great, Bruce and Joyce are absolutely fantastic to work with. All communication is friendly and prompt, no question goes unanswered, and you'll feel like you are renting from a friend! Thank you again Bruce, Joyce, and Robert!"

  • We've returned five times!

    "Hope cottage has become our favorite spot in the Caribbean. While my wife can sleep as late as she likes because shutters keep the bedroom dark, I awaken, make coffee and enjoy breakfast and view on the deck next to the private pool. When she gets up we read or play Scrabble until driving a short distance to a beach or Philipsburg. Marigot and Grand Case are a bit further. Hope Cottage is convenient, relaxing, and beautiful. There are many wonderful restaurants near by. The only thing we miss is that before the Westin Hotel was built, Dawn Beach had a wonderful beach bar named Scavenger's. We've recommended it to friends."

  • 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!!!!"

St Maarten Travel Tips

St. Maarten Resorts Present a Personal Holiday

Do you want a personal stay, where it feels like the owners have set everything up just for you? If you want a kitchen for home-cooked meals, a centrally located home, and the sunrise outside your bedroom window then St. Maarten lodging is precisely what you need. Act now as every year, more and more people find the little gem that holds St. Maarten resorts. You will have your pick of St. Maarten rentals along the coastline on Antilles.

The Antilles and St. Maarten Lodging

Antilles is a large island in the Caribbean waiting to greet you with perfect St. Maarten rentals. The island is owned by the French and the Dutch which peacefully share the land. St. Maarten is the Dutch side of Antilles, which is also the smaller portion of the landmass. The French spelling of St. Maarten is St. Martin, which helps you locate the proper St. Maarten lodging when you plan your vacation. The climate at St. Maarten resorts is a sunny and balmy 80 degrees Fahrenheit virtually year-round, so you can visit at any time of year.

St. Maarten Rentals near Ruby Bute’s Studio

A true delight for many vacationers to St. Maarten rentals is visiting Ruby Bute, one of the most famous island artists. She creates botanical landscapes and images of island life through her paintings and poetry. Her studio and gallery are open in Marigot, north of downtown near Friar’s Bay. You might want to call first to make sure she is welcoming visitors for the day you plan the trip, and bring local currency to come home with one of her reasonably priced prints.

Island Gambling at St. Maarten Resorts

St. Maarten lodging is conveniently located near the island’s 12 casinos. All of these casinos are located on the Dutch side and with gaming in the European mode. Spend your late nights inside the St. Maarten resorts' casinos, and your days along the various beaches.
