  • Great Place at a Great Location

    "This was my first time renting through this service so I was not exactly sure what to expect. I am a former resident of St Maarten so I know lots about the island and the location, just didn't know so much about this service or the owner. Typically when I go back to the island I either stay with friends or in a hotel in the Simpson Bay area. I will say that this is definitely the way to go - the villa is exactly as it is described and the photos are 100% accurate, what you see is what you get. For this trip there were 2 adults and 2 children aged 12 and 15, and Bob's villa has everything you need for a perfect stay. Admittedly we did not cook at all while we were there (it is vacation after all), however all the amenities are there for those who choose to do so. The location itself is in a nice area in Beacon Hill, a residential neighborhood close to the airport and located right on the ocean. Needless to say much of the time spent at the villa was spent on the deck by the pool and the ocean. Since the Maho area and Simpson Bay are so close, getting to any number of great restaurants or beaches (or beach bars) is quick and easy to do. When I return to the island I always rent a car because there is so much to see and do (and because I visit old friends in different areas of the island), and I recommend anyone visiting does the same. Bob recommended a rental agency to me that he uses (I typically would use another one but thought why not try something different) and they were on hand waiting for us when we arrived at the airport to pick us up and get us on the road. The rental agency is just minutes away from the villa so it worked out perfect - pick up at the airport, get the vehicle paperwork done and then right to the villa to unpack and get vacation started. The rates were good, the car was clean and newer (not all rental places in SXM can say this!) and we had no issues from pick up to drop off. And on the last day once we dropped it off at the rental agency, they took us back to the airport for our flight. Bob was the perfect host even before we arrived by answering lots of questions before we booked the villa, to arranging the car rental, to checking in on us to make sure we had everything we need during our stay, and for conversation over a beer. So with all that said, the summary is simple - if you are looking for a great place in a great location with a great host - this is the place to be. Thanks Bob for everything - I will be back!"

  • Better than expected!

    "We had a wonderful 12 night stay at Sea Belle. Close to airport, but didn't hear many flights. Very open floor plan with a wonderful view. The sliding doors open almost the entire wall to the pool and the sea. VERY well equipped...floats, chairs, umbrellas, floats, TV, CDs, bug spray, suntan lotion, coffee pot, coffee filters, foil, plastic wrap, spices, good variety of pots, pans, dishes, paper towels, shampoo, body soap, a safe, W&D, almost daily housekeeping, etc. The bath is new and contemporary. The king bed is very comfortable. Their are two chest of drawers and the closet has hangers. There's even an almost daily gardener that keeps the grounds perfect, washes down the deck and pool chairs. Then dries the chairs off. He even rakes the beach. You are walking distance via the beach to Karakter Beach Bar and Mary's Boon Guest House. Both have good food. The neighborhood is a little run down, but the neighbors are very friendly. We did have a problem with someone parking in our spot. A quick call to the manager soon had that resolved. Not having to have keys was great, every door, gate, etc is coded...couldn't lose key😊򒨊𘀠. If you want to stay on the Dutch side, we would strongly recommend Sea Belle."

  • Wonderful and relaxing place to stay!!!

    "Mary's Boon is the perfect place to stay if you want to relax and be able to walk to the beach in 2 mins or less. My husband and I really enjoyed staying in this villa. It was clean and well appointed. The owner is very easy to work with and alway's answered my many questions right away. The king size bed is very comfortable and the bathroom is spacious. The staff was very accommodating and extremely nice. The beach is beautiful and we liked that the chairs and umbrella's were complimentary. We had all the amenities of the hotel even though the villa is privately owned. Our favorite thing to do was to get our coffee, walk out our door and onto the beach for a long walk. Normally we stay across the bay and go to a different beach each day since we really don't like the beach they have, but not here. We only left to go to a different beach on 2 days because we loved this beach so much. The planes were a bit loud the first day but after that you really don't pay attention to them unless it's the KLM 747 taking off. Then you just have to watch!! Lots of restaurants and night life in Simpson's Bay and Karakters restaurant is a walk down the beach. With the new causeway it was less than 10 minutes to Marigot or 20 to Grand Case. We went to Grand Case for Carnival Night on Tuesday and ate at LeTastivan. Excellent service and delicious food. They close off the street that night for vendors, dancers and music. A must if you come to the island. I would definitely recommend Mary's Boon to anyone that loves to relax and enjoy the beach!"
