  • Great Family Vacation!

    "We rented Seaside Retreat January 16-26! Yes, 10 days of Caribbean bliss! There were 8 family members in our group; all adults along with a 11 year old niece. The villa provided all the necessities of home. Each couple had their own bedroom along with its own bathroom which was a plus! The views from the patio were stunning day & night! The airport landings & takeoffs were tolerable & by the end of the time there it was something that you really didn't notice to much. The villa was close to attractions & some within walking distance. Jenny, the housekeeper, did a great job cleaning 3 times while we were there. She washed bedding, towels & cleaned bathrooms. There was plenty of hot water for the group at all times. All the kitchen appliances worked well. It might be a good idea to print off an online detailed map of the island before you come because there were not any to be found on the island. They did provide one but was very vague on street details. I would like to throw in a few things that may need attention. Not trying to be picky - just saying. *Internet was not very reliable at all. For the most part it was difficult to get connected. *Patio/pool were wonderful, the balcony could be a hazard to smaller children due to gap width in the railing. *Bathroom, kitchen & beach towels were getting thin. *Washing machine did not spin out the water. We informed Jenny & she seemed aware of the issue. *Would be nice to have lids for the frying pans in the kitchen. *Patio door screen looked like someone had fixed them in the past however they were in need of some attention as there were open gaps in them. Not good to keep out mosquitos and other bugs. Attractions we visited: *David's Pocket-beautiful! *Maho beach-cool watching airplanes land & takeoff plus good food at Driftwood beach bar. Plus shopping in Maho & eating at the 3 Amigos-good Tex-Mex. *Mullet Bay beach-stunning sunsets & relatively calm bay. *Pinel Island-relaxing & great snorkeling on the other side of the island. *Shopping in Phillipsburg-specifically visiting Juggie's Place "smallest bar in the world", his deal was 2 beers & a Cuban cigar for $2.99. The guys in the group this & enjoyed visiting with Juggie while the girls shopped in the nearby store. *Little Bay beach-nice & not many people. All in all Seaside Retreat did not disappoint. If we ever get the chance to return to Sint Maarten we would stay here again. Thanks Rick for sharing your villa! Stay well!"

  • Love the place would go back in a heart beat

    "We've been to St. Martin several times staying mostly at resort properties which meant small rooms and not very comfortable. This was by far the most enjoyable place we stayed, great view, lots of room and excellent condition. You won't be disappointed!!!"

  • this property is a fabulous treasure

    "We spent a week with 3 adult children and my husband myself and my 3 siblings and a spouse. The house is comfortable and roomy and easily accommodated all 9 of us. Once you step outside the back door you have stepped beyond nice to absolutely fabulous. The house is right on the sea. The sandy beach is steps from the back door. Right outside the back door is a well furnished covered patio where you can sit and watch the ocean and the sunsets. We ate most of our meals here. A stone path leads to a small pool overlooking the ocean and a setting of patio furniture fronting the ocean. The beach is amazing! St Marten is fairly built up and on many of the nice beaches you will find rows of beach chair and lots of people. Plum beach is secluded and there are very few people at this beach. It feels like you have a private seaside paradise. There is nice snorkeling just in front of the house ( enter the water a couple hundred yards down where the rocks are smooth and flat and entry is easy). I cannot believe that we lucked out and were able to rent this very private very nice house in the most amazing setting you can imagine!"

  • Wonderful location, clean, updated and lovely owners

    "I was a bit skeptical renting due to the lower cost, boy was I rewarded for going ahead with it! The unit was so clean, updated and had wonderful air conditioning. In addition, the water pressure was great, towels were plenty and the kitchen had all utensils you could need (not a stocked pantry however... No sugar, oil, dry ingredients.. Just salt and pepper) Our unit also included beach chairs, an umbrella, cooler, and snorkeling gear! My ONLY issue was the pillows, they were rock hard! No one else in my party had issues, but I get headaches very easily and the pillows were a nightmare for me. Luckily, I brought a neck pillow for the flight and it worked out. Wifi was constant and good as well, although my goal was to leave the phone alone! Now, this is not a resort nor is it on the beach with the rest of the resorts.. It is located on the opposite end of 'the action' on Orient Beach (that is exactly what I was looking for). You can walk to get to the more populated part of the beach, if that's your desire. In addition, the pool was great! A nice dip after spending all day in the ocean was the perfect end to the afternoon."
