Van is the man!!!

  • 5 of 5

Do you want all the amenities of home, while enjoying a front row view of the ocean from your bed? If the answer to this question is yes, then you MUST stay at Van’s place. “Van is the man” is the statement that was uttered constantly during our stay in his condo.

I don’t know where to begin to describe this wonderful experience! Well, let start with the fact that it is an oceanfront condo and you are literally steps away from the beach. Now for those of you who may get home sick, Van has a solution for that . There is wireless internet as well a computer available so you can update your Facebook and brag to all of your friends about all the fun you are having. Are you not a technical person, Van has a solution for that as well! You have free calls back and forth from the US and Canada!!! Where else can you find that in another country?

The kitchen was stocked with ample appliances, and about 3 coffee makers. In addition there are ample pots and pans, to create everything from eggs Benedict to Lobster(which you can get from a lobster shack next to the resort). You will find plenty of cork skrews, matches and candles to ensure your visit is a pleasant one.

Did you forget to bring your bug repellant, well Van has a solution for that. He leaves citronella candles under the sink to be used during your stay! Finally, the most pleasant item for me as a fan that was located in the bedroom that did not have a ceiling fan! Clearly Van thought of all the things that he wanted on vacation, and ensures that he housed them in his condo for his guest. We will be back, and I can not stop telling people who wonderful our time was.

Van, you are the man!!!!! :)

Van Newmans beach front Condo 80463

  • 5 of 5

Five friends and I stayed at Mr. Newman Condo for a 60th birthday. Our stay was amazing.

The Condo was well equipped with every everything we needed for a enjoyable vacation. It included a full kitchen ,internet, Wi fi, telephone, air conditioning and all the linens we needed.

Phone call to the Us are free. There is even a cooler to take on the beach . I forgot my bug spray, however there was some available to use. Mr. Newman thinks of everything to make his guest comfortable. The beach is 3 steps away from the door. The views were amazing as we look across the ocean. The water was clear, blue, warm and inviting .

There was no shortage of beach chairs . I love the pool with the swim up bar. Restaurants and buses are across the street. One mention, Condo can be use for people age 55+.

I have visited several Islands, ST. Maarten is one of the best. I will be bring my family back to this beautiful place.

Best 7 Weeks in Paradise! Mr. Newman's Condo is Everything Anyone Could Ever Want or Wish For!!!

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost I'd like to thank Van for trusting me with his amazing Condo. I woke up each morning to the most beautiful sunrise for 7 weeks! July and August 2016. Truly, it wasn't enough. Everything you could possibly need is provided to you by Van ~ from a computer, complimentary phone to make and receive calls to/from the U.S.A. to an ice cooler for the beach and everything in-between. It's the perfect location - in the heart of everything. Restaurants, entertainment, the sea is literally right outside the patio...right down the steps. Breathtaking! I did not want to leave. I felt more at home at The Royal Palm, than I do in N.Y. I took care of the condo as if it were my own 😊 Loved getting up to make the bed(s), had to keep the condo immaculate because it is so beautiful! Loved cooking everyday because, hey with that view cooking and cleaning seemed like a pleasure! By the way, I don't cook or clean my own condo at home, lol. I can't express how magical, relaxing and luxurious it is. The entire staff is extremely friendly and helpful with all your needs.There are plenty of activities on site also. The onsite pool bar and restaurant are a great way to spend your days & nights. Walking on the beach and watching the sunrise and set were two of my favorite daily activities, simply majestic. There are so many restaurants within walking distance with nightly entertainment in almost all of them. The choices are endless. Free laundry right outside the condo door, great perk! All the comforts you'd want plus the luxury of a beach front condo-how could you possibly go wrong! Great neighbors also; Tim and Patricia. Love seeing them each year. There is something for everyone at Van's condo, but be warned - like me, you will not want to go home when the time comes. Staying at Van's has spoiled me for life❗️ The only downside, ... I wish I owned the Condo 😃. I'd never return to NYC❣ Thanks again Van. "Thank You", just doesn't seem sufficient to express my gratitude. I hope to return next summer ~ that thought is what keeps me smiling and motivated to get up each morning and go to work. Ahhhh, St. Maarten, I miss you terribly😢 My home away from home. 💖

location location location. what an awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Where to start?? WOW!! This place is amazing and Van's unit is the perfect unit. Its right on the beach on the bottom floor with beach literally 10 steps from the back door. We went out with our friends everyday and had the best time ever. The unit had everything in it that you would need. There is a grocery store we walked to about 3 minutes away. Also there are resteraunts right across the street however i thing the resteraunt at royal palms is the best kept secret there. we ate at several places but I think the resteraunt at Royal Palms was great. I would strongly urge anyone looking to stay in Van's unit. It is awesome.

Great location. Right on beach. Condo was nice but needs to be updated. Beach was not crowded and the people at the resort are very hospitable. Location is so close to airport and many great restaurants and bars

Simpson bay was isolated from most winds

We stayed in Van's unit with our family over Christmas and New Year's two years ago and it was one of the most memorable family vacations we have had. I beg to differ with the ONE negative review. Van is EXTREMELY attentive to the needs of his renters. Any issues we had were dealt with immediately by Van and the staff. We have nothing but wonderful things to say about the property and his attentiveness to detail. We have been to St. Maarten many times and our best trip was spent in his unit.
