About Linda Tucker & Jamie Lear

We've been vacationing in St. Maarten (always on Simpson Bay) for 30+ years. Now that we're retired, it's great to be able to spend more time there.

When the La Siesta Residence complex was built in 2006, we purchased Sea Place (2nd floor/2 BR which is unit B2). We loved it so much that when the A Building was completed in 2007, we purchased Sea Belle (ground floor/1 BR which is unit A3).

Jamie likes the A3 unit for the convenience of walking directly out to the pool. My favorite is the B2 unit because I like the view from the 2nd floor balcony and I like that the master bedroom also has a great oceanfront view.

Using the Internet made it very easy for us to share our vacation homes with other beach lovers. We now have many repeat guests, who like ourselves, have gotten hooked after one visit and keep coming back. Vacationing in St. Maarten is a pleasurable addiction that you just can't kick.

Linda Tucker & Jamie Lear purchased this condo in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Linda, Once again our holiday was Tres Magnifique! This was our third trip to St. Martin, and the second time we have stayed at Sea Place. (It was reserved last year) Sea Place is spectacular, you have thought of everything. Each morning we would walk the few blocks to Atlantica French Bakery for fresh pastries then return and have breakfast on the veranda. One day, we took the beach chairs and lunch to Orient Beach and spent the day. Another day we took the ferry to St. Barts. We used Great Bay Express in Philipsburg (Bobby's Marina) The fare was $80 round trip. Parking was easy and plentiful. Late afternoons would find us at the Yacht Club Marina to watch the yachts coming and going. In the evenings we would enjoy dinner out, Marios Bistro on Christmas night, and Il Nettuno, in Grand Case on Christmas Eve. This year we found that Restaurants in Grand Case, Marigot, and Sandy Ground, that charge in Euros, no longer accept "tips" charged to credit cards. They ask that tips be in cash. Each evening we would choose a restuarant from your list and were not disappointed. Perhaps one of the best kept secrets in Cole Bay Sint Maarten is Cafe on the Bay. Great food and service. They also have happy hour. We spent many hours on the beach or at the pool just relaxing. It doesn't get any better than that.

Thank you so much for sharing Sea Place with us. We are already looking forward to next year.

Stunning, finely appointed, serene and close to all the best!

  • 5 of 5

I have used Homeaway for almost 10 years now and this is the FIRST time I was excited about writing a review. This property is stunning. Beautiful views, excellent location and the unit has everything you need - full kitchen, washer/dryer, coffee maker, a parking spot, access to a pool and the beach, etc. The condo is spacious and cool. No need for a/c much! The ocean breeze wakes you up in the morning and puts you to sleep in the evening. We walked to the nearby store and even walked to a nearby church service. Safe and quiet neighborhood and the cleaning staff was par excellence. I HIGHLY recommend this condo. My sister, fiance and I had the time of our lives. We will be back again!

Nice Place with a Fantastic View

  • 5 of 5

If we have the chance to return to St. Maarten, we will definitely prefer to stay here again. The place was very clean and was setup to have everything one could need during their stay. The balcony is a perfect place for a cup of coffee in the morning. We liked the view so much we usually tried to make it back in time to have a little happy hour while the sun set. Linda is organized and provided additional information about the current state of the island. While there was a lot of damage last September, there has also been a lot of progress already. The beaches are still gorgeous and water activities are available at some of them. There are plenty of restaurants open as well. We had a wonderful week there!

Amazing location and view!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this property and for good reason! The property is in great shape and, being situated right on the beach, the views from the large balcony are spectacular! It is within walking distance to many bars and restaurants so there is never a lack of choice as to where to go next. We came to celebrate a special birthday and Linda was a gem to deal with again and is very responsive. Would recommend this property to anyone!

Absolutely a wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time trying VRBO and I can't tell you what a wonderful experience it was for us. After Irma we didn't really know what to expect of our home away from home, but this place was beautiful. Had everything you needed to feel you were at home. Only thing we wish was different was the fact that we didn't stay there longer!!!

Spectacular Unit in Simpson Bay!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a 13 night stay at Sea Palace Villa. If you are a St. Maarten lover, like us, and your normal accommodations were destroyed by last fall's hurricanes, then Sea Palace is a great option. The unit is extremely clean, and is well cared for by two very special housekeepers that due an awesome job. The patio is just as the pictures show and is really the best feature. The kitchen is well appointed - the owners have gone above and beyond to make it very easy to use....just like home. Bedrooms are well sized, with comfortable bedding. Bathrooms are really only meant for one person at time, but who didn't hamper our stay, we weren't looking for a spa. The unit is centrally located in Simpson Bay, which makes it perfect for getting out to all of the great restaurants, beaches and shopping - it's worth pointing out that it is located on a mainly "local" residential street- meaning, fewer tourists (which are located at least several 100 yards away). Booking arrangements were easy!!! Linda was great to work with.

We look forward to returning again soon.
