  • Family of 10 from Philly enjoy Sunrise

    "We just returned from a weeklong stay at Sunrise in St. Maarten. It was the perfect size for our group of 10. We were three couples and four children. The house was very spacious and impeccably clean. The pool was great fun and deep enough to jump and dive in to. Norma, the housekeeper, went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. She was nothing short of pleasant and helpful. She even cleaned and pressed my husband’s very dirty white pants (without asking)- they looked brand new! Our kids, two aged 11 and two aged 16, had the time of their lives and loved having their own rooms on the lower level. They had ultimate privacy. Overall, the trip was exactly what we hoped for. My husband and I hadn’t been to St. Maarten since our honeymoon eighteen years before. The island is as beautiful as ever. We preferred to go to the French side, which was far less crowded and congested. We also loved the secluded feel of the beaches especially Bai Rouge (about a 30 minute drive). Be warned: the Dutch side has lots of traffic. One day we made a wrong turn and drove across the Dutch side to get home and it took us over an hour! We also went out to dinner on the French side- very pricey though! The one pleasant surprise was Big Fish Restaurant on Dawn Beach, just down the hill from the house. The atmosphere was lovely and the service was top notch! I highly recommend. The only criticism about the house was the weak Internet signal and we could not figure out how to use the televisions, but if we really had cared, we would’ve asked Norma. It was kind of nice to check out for a week. Our teenaged girls had the room with no Internet signal at all, which was refreshing since they actually had to talk to each other. ;) We would definitely return to this house- it was a great value for the quality and beauty!"

  • Absolutely breathtaking views!

    "We are world travelers and very picky when it comes to our accommodations... Not just with our rooms, but the entire property. This property had it all!!! The moment you step inside the condo you can relax...it smelled very clean, looked clean and had all the necessary housekeeping and kitchen items you need and then some! Our kids enjoyed making grilled cheese sandwiches with the grilled cheese maker, there was also a toaster oven, blender and all sorts of extra kitchen gadgets! Two large screen TVs meant nobody fighting over what to watch! One in the bedroom and another in the living room. The grounds are maintained very well... This is island living at its finest. From the balcony you overlook the garden, pool, Maho Beach and one of a kind view of the iconic St. Maarten runway! You don't even have to leave the condo to experience it all... This unit has a larger balcony than most units which has a table and chairs and chaise lounge!!! The pool area is super clean and also offers a hot tub tucked into a palm tree setting and a platform for viewing the runway that is literally just feet away. This is a better view than anywhere else in Maho!!! There is also a full bar with daytime/early evening bar tender service for resort guests and members only! You cannot find a better lodging option than this! We also found the location to be most convenient with a grocery store just beneath the pool area. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping along the side streets. We also rented a car for a day, the car rental is just across the street, however, we found it cheaper and a very short walk to the airport. You almost don't even need a taxi ride to the airport if you are traveling light on luggage, however, the taxi ride is just $4 per person. Don't mess around looking elsewhere... This condo is PERFECT!! Hoping it doesn't become so popular though that when I want to book again it is already taken!!"

  • Fantastic condo, perfect location

    "Stayed at the Sandpiper with my husband and my sister to escape the winter in the north, and to relax after the holidays. The condo is huge, with very high ceilings - both bedrooms very spacious, and well furnished. The view is stunning - we all enjoyed just siting at the table on the very large balcony and watching the sailboats and mega yachts come and go, especially when the drawbridge opens in the am and pm. Pool deck is spacious, and we mostly had it to ourselves and very few condos were occupied when we were there. The french Bistro Alantico was fantastic, and we retrieved danishes and crepes there every morning - its a 5 minute walk away to the commercial area, with bars (Dingy Dock, Yacht Club), restaurants, and several small grocery store to provisioning. Prices were fantastic! Gordon was a bevy of information, and suggested we rent a car from a local vendor near the airport, Empress rentals. They came to pick us up, and drove us to the airport after the rental return - all at about half the price of the major rental firms. You can walk to the fun beach bar Karacter, which has amazing meals and drinks. The airport is right behind the bar for some added excitement. Condo is perfect, really, and the beach very private. Kitchen well stocked with pans, etc., and we stayed in two nights to cook on the grill. Large grocery store only a ten minute car ride away. Liquor and beer just a 5 minute walk away at the Chinese grocery store (and $15 cheaper per bottle than at home in Washington, DC) We took an island tour via rental car one day, and enjoyed some of the best french food (and very affordable) we have had outside of France! Three course lunch with steak and bernaise, including drink - $20 in Oyster Bay."
