About Laurence and Debra Smith

We have been coming to St Maarten for the last 21 years. Since the first time we came to the island we always knew we wanted a second home here. It wasn't until we saw Vista Royale did we immediately decide that this was going to be our paradise. While we work to make this our home we wish to share it with others so you to can find paradise.

Laurence and Debra Smith purchased this condo in 2013

Why Laurence and Debra Smith chose St Maarten

This property is unique in that you can enjoy all that the island has to offer yet still have a serene place to come and relax. It is away from the hustle and bustle yet close enough to be within minutes of the action. At the end of a day at the beach to sit and enjoy a cocktail and the spectacular views makes this a real gem.

What makes this condo unique

Privacy, serenity and security

Beautiful

We had a wonderful time in this appartment with the beautiful view of the see with the ships, the setting sun and the very beautiful skies. We loved to swim in the pool while watching the cruise ships.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 nights in this villa and absolutely loved it. The view was spectacular and we could have easily spent the four days out on the terrace dipping in the pool and watching the action in the harbour. The villa itself was equally enjoyable. It had all the comforts of home plus some. We enjoyed the local artwork throughout the villa and the decor/bedding in the master bedroom was lovely and romantic. The villa was spotless and very well equipped right down to having spices etc in the kitchen to use for those meals prepared at the villa or on the BBQ. We actually preferred to pick something up for dinner and bring it back to the villa. We lit the candles, opened up a bottle of wine and enjoyed dining out on the terrace. You do need to use bug spray as there were a few mosquitoes. Deb had spray available under the bathroom sink.

The owners, Deb and Larry, were easy to work with, quick to respond and very accomodating with arrival and departure times.

We would very much recommend this villa and will definitely be returning the next time we visit St. Martin.

Outstanding Venue

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at VistaRoyale under previous ownership at least twice before. The new owners have completely refurbished the property which, by itself, is impressively located above the Port of St. Maarten. The unit has new appliances and everything we needed. All appliances, tvs, and air conditioners were working (unlike the "previous administration"), and served us well. We met the owners who were very hospitable and eager to make sure we were happy with everything. Their property manager too was kind and responsive. We decided to return to this villa because of the enticing view of the harbor and we were not disappointed. This vacation venue and its new owners have our enthusiastic endorsement.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind endorsement. We have tried very hard to make Vista Royale the kind of place that you would have fond memories of. As time goes on we hope to make it even better. We hope you will consider us on your next vacation to Sxm

Still Awe Inspiring

  • 5 of 5

I wrote a review of this place last year because it took my breath away. This year when we decided that we would take a much deserved vacation, my wife and I both said, "Let's go back to St Maarten and Vista". So this year, with our 13 year old in tow this time, we headed back to SXM. I was worried that the kiddo would be a bit bored. I love that it is not on the beach and away from it all, but would he? Well, I could not get him out of the pool all week. He loved watching the ships come in and out of port. It was actually awesome seeing him get as much enjoyment from being there as we did! The hardest part for him were the tears he let go when it was time to leave. We have been back for about 4 weeks now and he cannot stop telling EVERYONE the great time he had.. I mean everyone, from the neighbors, to the mail lady, to the random person in the grocery store. This spot may not be for everyone, it is away from the action and off the beaten path, but it is perfect for us and our special family memories. Thank you Larry and Deb for your wonderful home and welcoming nature. Thank you even more for all the special family memories we get to make here!! See you next year?

Great location with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Who would have believed that the photos of the view from this home were actually as colorful and picturesque as the website shared? We descended down a flight of stairs to the main floor and were in awe of the beautiful views of the Phillipsburg Boardwalk and Great Bay. If you are looking to come home for a mid afternoon siesta after a morning workout or day at the beach, this home is it. Each afternoon we enjoyed the private pool , outdoor shower and rested every day before heading out for an evening of great food or entertainment on the island. Try eating at the Lazy Lizard on the boardwalk and make sure you take a trip to Anguilla. We kept the guard at the gate entertained with our 3-4 trips a day up the hill and no matter how late we arrived home, he greeted us with a wave and a smile. The home was clean, the beds were comfortable and the sliding glass patio doors made each day of the week so relaxing. We were able to navigate back to the home from anywhere on the island in our rental car as we learned to trust and follow the signs back to the cruise terminal. The location was great and we felt welcomed by all. Come visit this home and know that it was designed with great care to be a wonderful vacation destination!
