We had visited St. Maarten but only from cruise ships. The color of the water was always spectacular so we wanted to spend some time on the island. We found Seaside Retreat based upon the photos and descriptions. Rick was so accommodating and responded to my (numerous) emails within hours, we decided to give it a try. The photos of the pool and view do not do it justice! AMAZING views. The side facing east is the best view because of the bay and the amazing yachts that come and go all week. It is totally private and really is the highest point on the peninsula, but the pool guy just shows up in the morning, so be aware. The villa is within walking distance to the airport Hilo beach you have seen on You Tube and walking distance to the other side of Simpson Bay and Karakter's restaurant on the beach! But Rick was right, you need a car no matter where you stay. Then there is Jenny! Yes, wifi is not the fastest compared to the US, but what do you expect? Everything is on island time, as it should be on vacation. It is an easy .5 mile walk at night to several great 'Mexican' restaurants. We thought we would cook dinner but groceries are expensive yet restaurants are not (can't figure that one out, but true). If you go in March, realize the pools will be cold because day temperatures are in the low 80s. Driving to beaches on the French side is a must as is a meal at the Tropicana Restaurant in Marigot!!! The villa is very comfortable; plenty of towels and linens, etc.; we were 4 couples and had plenty of room.

Love Seaside Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were at this villa two years ago & liked it so much we returned with our two daughters & their guys this year. We all had a fantastic time! The villa is so comfortable & nice. We enjoyed all of the amenities! Jenny the housekeeper is so friendly & helpful. She is wonderful! The location is so wonderful for anything you want to do. We hope to return again! We stayed Feb. 11-18, 2017. Thank you Rick for another great vacation! We really like all the villa has to offer! The pool was nice to have & being so close to the bay to watch the yachts coming & going was nice as well. Everyone had their own bedroom & bathroom so it was nice when we wanted to get ready to go places.

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Seaside Retreat January 16-26! Yes, 10 days of Caribbean bliss!

There were 8 family members in our group; all adults along with a 11 year old niece. The villa provided all the necessities of home. Each couple had their own bedroom along with its own bathroom which was a plus! The views from the patio were stunning day & night! The airport landings & takeoffs were tolerable & by the end of the time there it was something that you really didn't notice to much. The villa was close to attractions & some within walking distance. Jenny, the housekeeper, did a great job cleaning 3 times while we were there. She washed bedding, towels & cleaned bathrooms. There was plenty of hot water for the group at all times. All the kitchen appliances worked well. It might be a good idea to print off an online detailed map of the island before you come because there were not any to be found on the island. They did provide one but was very vague on street details.

I would like to throw in a few things that may need attention. Not trying to be picky - just saying.

*Internet was not very reliable at all. For the most part it was difficult to get connected.

*Patio/pool were wonderful, the balcony could be a hazard to smaller children due to gap width in the railing.

*Bathroom, kitchen & beach towels were getting thin.

*Washing machine did not spin out the water. We informed Jenny & she seemed aware of the issue.

*Would be nice to have lids for the frying pans in the kitchen.

*Patio door screen looked like someone had fixed them in the past however they were in need of some attention as there were open gaps in them. Not good to keep out mosquitos and other bugs.

Attractions we visited:

*David's Pocket-beautiful!

*Maho beach-cool watching airplanes land & takeoff plus good food at Driftwood beach bar. Plus shopping in Maho & eating at the 3 Amigos-good Tex-Mex.

*Mullet Bay beach-stunning sunsets & relatively calm bay.

*Pinel Island-relaxing & great snorkeling on the other side of the island.

*Shopping in Phillipsburg-specifically visiting Juggie's Place "smallest bar in the world", his deal was 2 beers & a Cuban cigar for $2.99. The guys in the group this & enjoyed visiting with Juggie while the girls shopped in the nearby store.

*Little Bay beach-nice & not many people.

All in all Seaside Retreat did not disappoint. If we ever get the chance to return to Sint Maarten we would stay here again. Thanks Rick for sharing your villa! Stay well!

Amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Big thank you to Rick!! What a fabulous vacation we had. This was our second stay in St. Maarten and loved the location of this house! The view was nothing short of amazing! We were able to watch cruise ships come and go and flights at SXM take off. The villa is walking distance to Sunset Beach Bar and Maho, Simpsons Bay beach was really nice and quiet after the hustle and bustle of our visits to Phillipsburg, Orient Bay and Mullet Beach. There were 8 of us plus an 11 month old baby. Had everything there we needed. Bedrooms were all very roomy and such a bonus that each had its own bathroom. Upstairs bedroom/ sitting room is huge! Kitchen was great, with everything you could possibly need. We discovered the blender was cracked ( unfortunately while it was blending drinks..lol) and Jenny had a new one for us the next day. The pool and patio were awesome, (even the resident Iguanas)! We spent most of our time outdoors. Very thoughtful that Rick had supplied some mosquito repellant/citronella candles..fine during the day but we had a few bites at night. So to make a long story short, we LOVED our stay! Will absolutely look into staying again if we return.

Beacon Hill Seaside Retreat is truly a Gem

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay at this home in Beacon Hill. All of the rooms in the home are well apportioned. The kitchen has every gadget a cook could want, the bedrooms are all roomy with plenty of space and cabinetry, and updated beautifully. Love the auto shutters that were within the windows, not only to help darken a room, but to cool off the sun on days before we might turn on the air conditioning for an hour or so. The landscaping around the home is something I really enjoyed, need a little greenery to get me relaxed with a little wine at dusk, and the windex blue ocean waves really bring you into that relaxation zone, add a little music to the mix with the outdoor speakers were the icing on the cake. We love walking in that area,we tend to walk for one or two hours every morning, and it is easy to pick up a quick breakfast at the Maho Market to get your breakfast "fuel". We had one couple with us on this trip, had our first drinks at the Driftwood bar, then enjoyed watching some sporting events at Three Amigo's restaurant in Maho and had some really good appetizers there. Our favorite restaurant this trip was at Chesterfields in Phillipsburg, we all enjoyed our seafood dinners there, and shared a wonderful brownie and ice cream sundae afterwards. Spent a nice afternoon at Karakters, first enjoying some tapas, then went swimming for awhile, that was our favorite "beach" day. Can't wait to return to SXM, and all 4 of us agreed, Seaside Retreat is a place that they want to come back to.

Awesome Villa!! Wonderful Trip!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying at the property. We were a group of 4 couples that stayed for 2 weeks and had a wonderful time at this property! We were there from Jan. 31st-Feb. 13th. There was plenty of room with the rooms being furnished nicely and maintained wonderfully. We loved the view and having the bay right there to watch the boat traffic was an added bonus. We saw some impressive yachts moored right off of the property. We ate in sometimes and went out sometimes. The property is easy to get to and located in an excellent area. It was not far to bars, restaurants, beaches and the airport. Rick was so patient in answering all of my questions-there were lots as we had never rented privately before-we have always stayed at all-inclusive resorts in the past. The villa is described well on the listing and the pictures show it well. Jenny is the housekeeper and was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed visiting with her. There were no surprises which when you are traveling it is nice to avoid surprises. We spent plenty of time by the pool but also traveled out to different beaches and areas. Of course shopping in Phillipsburgh is a must for any woman traveling! It was nice to see the cruise ships coming in so we had an idea of the number of people that would be in town. We would definitely recommend this property to others and have already given information to some others. Thank you Rick for renting us this fantastic property. You do an excellent job of keeping it nice and comfortable for those of us coming in. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a beautiful, comfortable and easily accessible home on the ocean! My husband and I hope to come back again with our daughters when they can get away.
