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 Simpson Bay

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.

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!!

The unit needs urgent renovations.

  • 2 of 5

The 1st impressions are great. the view is excellent and the location as well. Unfortunately if you take a closer inspection the condo is old and is not as fancy as it looks like in the beginning. The staff in the resort are very unpleasant and they don't have a clue how to go around with customers and customers satisfaction. We were also not informed about renovations during our stay. I can't believe that the owner was not aware. We would love to recommend the condo, but sorry due to the overall impression we can't. Begging for cleaning and begging for beach towels every day is not what you may expect. Cleaning was done only once and on the agreed day, there was nobody. We had to investigate and arrange it ourselves. We would go somewhere else next time.

Owner's Response: Our unit actually looks better in person as we have replaced and updated many of the furnishings. We have always received praise regarding the Royal Palm staff. They go above and beyond to accommodate guests if they are treated nicely and with respect. Occasionally they do run out of beach towels when resort is busy but are normally available again in a couple of hours. Staff will even bring them to your room. Our unit is normally scheduled for cleaning Wednesday's. In this case our maid was out sick and the unit was cleaned on Thursday. The resort does not notify us when they do any outside maintenance. In this case they were painting the outside of the unit above ours. We had no prior knowledge of that and it should have taken less than a day. The renter had to leave two days early due to family matter. Requested a refund for those two days which we denied. Could possibly be the reason for this negative review.

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.
