Recent Simpson Bay reviews

  • Great place - loved it!

    "The pictures online don't do it justice. This is the best condo we have ever rented. The finishings were top notch - beautiful travertine tiles line the floor and the stone in the shower was just gorgeous, not to mention the lovely paintings all over the condo. This place would be great for 2 couples as both bedrooms have king size beds, walk in closets, ocean views and insuite bathrooms with huge showers with rain shower head above as well as a shower wand. Having a washer dryer was nice, and laundry soap was even provided. Nancy has great taste and the decor is spectacular. The towels were lush Ralph Lauren and there were plenty as well as large colorful beach towels. In the closet by the door were beach chairs and floats which came in handy. We have stayed on Simpson bay twice before, but liked this location best as it was closer to Karakters (great to hang day or night) and the view is great since it is past where the beach curves a bit so you can see the mountain and lights at night better. We rented a car and usually spent each day exploring the many great beaches of St Maarten. We came back in the late afternoon and relaxed at the pool or took a walk on Simpson bay before getting ready for dinner. Some of our favorite meals this trip were Cugini (Italian) and the Greenhouse (casual outdoor beachside). We always walk to Atlantico Bakery for breakfast or pastries and have drinks at the yacht club next to the drawbridge once or twice during our trip. There are countless great restaurants in Simpson bay so you don't have to drive far at night for a great meal. We also love The Red Piano for music especially on Monday nights when they have a band. We also took a cataraman tour around the island on Spellbound with adventure sports sailing with snorkeling and lunch - it left from the yacht club. As you can tell we had a great trip, just wished we had more time to enjoy the beautiful condo. I would recommend it to anyone."

  • Beautiful - New York Visitors

    "This is the 3rd time , I have used home away for booking trip to the Caribbean. We are arrived and met Alice at Avis and she was pleasant and escorted the nine of us to the Villa. It was spacious and the pictures represented the home and the group was pleased. Our housekeeper Inrid was accommodating and adjusted her schedule to our needs. I would recommend the home to other guest because it's near the airport, nice view of the ocean, beach and private. The next time, I would stay near Orient Beach and highly recommend the area as well"

  • Bill and Cindy

    "We have stayed in Simpson Bay area many times and thus know advantages of area, especially ability to walk to a great bakery and some fine restaurants. Our stay in this condo was especially enjoyable. Owner and property manager were most cooperative. The condo is in excellent condition. The resort is very compact, but at the same time very comfortable and friendly. We made some good friends and will definitely be looking to return. The grounds are well maintained ."

  • 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!"
