Visiting from Arizona

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week with our 3 Adult kids and their plus-ones. The penthouse was immaculate upon arrival and very spacious. Well stocked with everything you need and amazing gourmet kitchen. The views were spectacular and we really didn't want to leave. But when we did venture out we quickly found we were close to everything. Walking distance to a half dozen really good restaurants and the best beach on the island. The most important thing to us was the condition of the property. Very god shape with great linens and towels and maid service almost every day. Was our favorite VRBO by far. Just book it, you won't be disappointed. Finally, Alan the owner is a first rate guy. Very honest and easy to deal with.

Top location

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse is more amazing than pictures can capture. It is very well done in layout, and also decor. There was a lot of very nice features that we liked about the property. Location is amazing, and was beautiful at sunset. There was way too many things to list that we liked about our stay. It was a spacious home, and everyone we had with us loved it. I would definitely recommend and/or stay here again!!! Definitely worth the money.

Worth every penny

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular penthouse and location! I don't think you can find another penthouse like that in St Maarten. What you see in the photos is what you enjoy upon arrival, only better. We took our extended family of 10 on vacation. Everyone loved this property, its amenities, the private setting on the second floor, the beach in front and stunning sunsets.There are ocean or lagoon views from every room. Mullet beach is just a few steps away. The location is really convenient. There are plenty of private spaces as well as room for the whole family to hang out or eat together. You can sleep to the meditative sounds of ocean waves or opt for quiet air conditioning. The kitchen was well stocked. There was a big basket with snacks on the counter and drinks in the fridge when we arrived. We enjoyed delicious dinner at Blue Fin in front. This is a first class experience that is worth every penny!!

We created wonderful memories

  • 5 of 5

My family of 8 had an amazing time here creating wonderful memories that we will not soon forget. The condo which sits on a breathtaking beachfront, was the perfect place for cooking family meals together and eating around the outdoor dining table. Everything that we needed was made readily available to us. John, the manager and the concierge also made sure that we were well cared for throughout our stay. Now that we are all back at our respective homes, we long to go back to the sound of the waves, the gorgeous views and the warm breeze. We loved this penthouse and the island of St Maarten.

We all had an amazing stay thank you John :) Such a magnificent penthouse and stunning location that provided great space for all 10 of us. We loved watching turtles from the balcony and walking on the beach. Lots of relaxing and the perfect dinning table on the balcony to share a family meal. :) thanks so much we'd all love to come back!! :)

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse was the perfect getaway for our extended family of 9 in the perfect location of Cupecoy. The property looked exactly as the pictures, if not better. John, the manager couldn't have been more responsive and accommodating throughout the reservation and arrival process. The beautiful views from both balconies in front will forever remain treasured memories with the family. Located 2 minutes from Maho provided the perfect location to experience the local restaurants and shops. I would highly recommend this property to anyone and everyone and will definitely try to book this property for every return to the island.
