About Tim McArtor

My wife and have been coming to St. Maarten for 23 years and we fell in love with the island and people of St. Maarten. We wanted to spend more time 'on-island' and purchased our condo so we could spend more quality time on St. Maarten.

Tim McArtor purchased this condo in 2006

Why Tim McArtor chose St Maarten

We owned a timeshare in the area and found it to be an area that offered beautiful beaches, numerous restaurants and convenience to anywhere else on the island. Now that we have owned the property for 8 years we know we know we made the right decision.

What makes this condo unique

You will be hard pressed to find a condo with a better view or one located in a easier location to hit the beach. Each time you look out the totally glassed in front of the unit you have a spectacular view of the Caribbean and white sandy beach. Watch the yachts and cruise ships from your patio as you sip on a tropical drink. Located in a 5-Star Resort with every amenity you will ever need. Kick back and enjoy the good life.

We have stayed at Tim's place two years in a row and plan to spend time there again. First, Tim is a pleasure to deal with. The condo was repainted from our first year and some of the furniture upgraded. If there is a problem, Tim will make sure its fixed (even calling you from the US). As far as location, you are within walking distance to several restaurants, and beach bars; as well as just steps away from the beach. Nothing beats sitting on the patio with my morning coffee or afternoon cocktail. Happy Hour starts at 2 at the Royal Palm and everyone there makes sure you are having a great time. I HIGHLY recommend this unit anytime of year!

A week in Paradise.

  • 5 of 5

The entire experience of dealing with Tim was excellent from start to finish. The condo was exactly as described, and morning coffee on the deck watching the boats was amazing. Will definitely try to return and book again.

The Perfect Place for the Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We came to St. Maarten with our friends last year and knew we wanted to come back! We rented Tim's beautiful condo at the Royal Palm and thoroughly enjoyed the whole time! The spacious condo is just like the photos shown and everything you could ask for, including all the amenities you need and actually, just steps away from the beach. The location is perfect as it is within walking distance bars & restaurants and even the grocery story. So really no need to rent a car, but if going farther around the island, the taxi or bus service is really reasonable & reliable.

The owner, Tim, was a real pleasure to deal with and also provided prompt responses to all of our questions. We definitely want to do this again - Tim, you have our highest recommendations! Thanks So Much!!

Wonderful, Relaxing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from St. Maarten ! We were two girlfriends celebrating our 60th birthday together. What a great week we had here at Royal Palm. Tim's condo was perfect for us. Literally just steps from the beach, 2 bedrooms each with it's own bathroom. Full kitchen, patio. I agree with other posts here, photos are completely accurate . Very close to airport. Staff at Royal Palm all very friendly and helpful. Very good restaurants across the street, Skipjacks, and Lee's BBQ. Cugini's Italian Restaurant down the road. Tim is a very personable , and responsive owner. Would love to visit St. Maarten again in the future, and hopefully Tim's condo will be available! Thanks again Tim, we had a great birthday celebration!
