A great balance of relaxing and activity!

  • 4 of 5

The location is one of the best in philipsburg...close to the shopping, bars and restaurants if that is your thing, but also has a semi-private beach steps from the condo and away from the crowds. The building manager Ankie sets up chairs and umbrellas each morning quite early so that you can immediately hit the beach. The water is clean and calm (no seaweed at all!). We used Michael, a driver recommended by Mya, for any times we wanted to visit other parts of the island and he was always prompt, courteous and knowledgeable. The condo is clean and quite comfortable. The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars was the very narrow circular stairs inside the building to the beach, which is the most direct route, are a bit of a challenge if you are at all unsteady on your feet or impaired. No worries however as you can always exit the street side and access the beach quickly that way! I recommend this unit and Mya was a pleasure to work with...and my test is always at the end of an experience to ask myself if I'd do it again, and most definitely yes, if we had the need to visit St. Maarten again, we'd consider it!

Owner's Response: Dear Brian, thank you for many of your kind words about your stay in our home. We are glad to hear that, like all of our guests, you had a great time and we passed your "end-of-experience" test. It is very important to us to provide a 5-star experience for our guests so we take each review very seriously. We were saddened to see that you took away a star due to the less comfortable steps from the balcony to the beach as there are 2 signs on that door advising guests NOT to use it and that it is an extra emergency exit only. Wherever you travel and stay around the world, we encourage you to follow directions and signage posted by owners/management as they are done so with your safety and enjoyment in mind.

Best rental ever! Right on the Beach.

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely speechless. The condo is beautiful beyond words and so nicely appointed. Mya is amazing. She says in touch all the time, you can tell she truly cares about her home and the guests. We would definitely recommend to others and hope to be back one day.

Great spot to chill

  • 4 of 5

As advertised, this condo is RIGHT on the beach (Great Bay). The onsite manager, Ankie, was fabulous and made sure our lounge chairs and umbrella's were put out every morning. The unit provides a view of the ocean and we spent many a morning and afternoon just watching the boats come in and go out. The boardwalk is 2 minutes away and on the boardwalk plenty of restaurants and shops. Great Location.

The unit was very clean, tidy and secure. Everything as advertised and it has everything you need as far as dishes/cookware/appliances. I would suggest the owner invest in new bedding and upgrade the indoor/outdoor furniture. For the price of unit, we were expecting more than plastic chairs on the balcony and the indoor couches were very uncomfortable. These are the only negatives with the unit.

I would recommend a few things: toilet paper, paper towels, and garbage bags should be restocked after every change of guests. Nobody wants to check-in at 8pm at night and find out there is no TP. For people who are staying more than a week, it would have been nice to have had the cleaners come and do a cleaning (I'd have gladly paid for it) - perhaps this could be an option.

The owner contacted us prior to leaving and, when we had any issues, was very prompt to deal with the issue. Again, the onsite manager was fantastic. Also, they put us in touch with a local taxi driver who we could trust and call upon to drive us around with minimal notice.

Overall, we look forward to coming back and enjoying our 2 weeks of chill and recommend it sincerely.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. There's is a whole bulk box of TP in the storage area of the Laundry closet, it's unfortunate that you did not mention that to the onsite manage or myself since as you mentioned both of us were very responsive. I'm sorry you were expecting our balcony chairs to be something other than exactly what is depicted on the pictures of the property when you made your reservation. Despite both of our desires to have a more stylish balcony furniture set, the chairs have to remain as is due to the close proximity to the Ocean in this beachfront unit and the effect salt water has had on other patio furniture we have had in the past (i.e. corrosion, etc). Certainly, we would be happy to accommodate your next stay with two newer non-plastic balcony chairs set out for your enjoyment, but I wanted to make sure you knew why certain choices were made for the unit. We look forward to having you again in the future. We will make sure to earn that 5th star next time :)

Adventure in Sint Maarten is as endless as your imagination. Add excitement to your days on the beach with many land and water activities and excursions offered on the island. This true Duty-Free island also offers endless shopping on both French and Dutch sides with widely circulated USD and EURO Currencies.

While boredom is truly a forbidden emotion on the island, with Sint Maarten as your home base, adding more stamps to your passport has never been easier with convenient day and overnight trips to neighboring Caribbean islands. The islands of Anguilla, St Barths, Saba, St Kitts and Nevis, and Puerto Rico are only a short ferry or flight away.

As the smallest island split between two nations, this island offers easy access to both French (St Martin) and Dutch (Sint Maarten) sides of the island with an invisible border. Public transportation is frequent and inexpensive, and affordable taxis are always around.
