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.

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!

Had a wonderful time at Royal Palm. The condo is exactly as shown and you couldn't ask for a better location . Tim was great to deal with and after talking to him , I felt like I'd known him for years. There is lots going on at the resort and within walking distance. Would definitely rent again... Beautiful !!!!!!

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Tim's place was great. His place is clean well maintained and looks just as pictured on the Internet. Tim is a great owner very easy to work with and answers all your questions in a timely manner. There are great restaurants right across the street with great happy hours and food. If you want to cook your own meal there are 2 grills right by Tim's place. The unit is well stocked with all you need for a fun and stress free week

Great Condo

  • 4 of 5

This was our second trip to Sint Maarten and again we had a fantastic stay. The condo complex is in a great location (we stayed in the same are on our first trip). You are walking distance to the grocery store and many restaurants.

The unit within the complex is also in an ideal location. Steps to the beach with the grill (which is top notch) right in front of your room! The view from the living room/kitchen is stunning! The kitchen and bathrooms can use some work as they are starting to see their days, however, this would not deter me from staying here again.

Tim, the owner of the unit is a terrific host. He definitely makes sure his guests will and are having a good stay.

Staying here makes renting a car unnecessary, unless you wish to explore the island daily. The bus system is also really great and we used it throughout our stay.
