  • 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!"

  • Absolutely Wonderful!

    "I honestly cannot say enough about what a fantastic time we had in St. Maarten. We love this villa and will definitely return! My husband and I came here for our annual adult escape and the property was perfect, the location is perfect, you can walk to the beach, bars, restaurants and the local store if you need anything small. We rented a jeep and explored the island every day. The people we met were so friendly too! When we arrived, the villa was clean, the pool was clear and Jill arrived with a welcome gift for us. Gordon was so nice to stop by and walk through everything, and gave us tips on places to go. Jill was excellent with helping us make all of the arrangements, thank you again! Next time we will return with friends! I highly recommend Captain Neil with the Celine Too, any of his trips will not disappoint. We ate all over the island, loved Orient Beach and Great Bay Beach. A few of the places we went to: Buccaneer Beach Bar, Greenhouse, Café Atlantico, St. Maarten Yacht Club, The Sky's the Limit, Skipjacks, Pineapple Petes, Dinghy Dock (drinks), Busby's Beach Bar, Calmos, Sunset Beach Bar, and Taloula Mangos! Definitely try the lobster at Skipjacks, and the Guavaberry Coladas at Sunset Beach Bar and Taloula Mangos. The food was excellent, the service was much slower but that is expected in the islands. Also, the dive master who lives below is extremely quiet, we rarely knew he was around. The cleaning lady was so nice to come in midweek to clean up and the pool man was also very friendly! Take the time to enjoy this amazing island, visit as many beaches as you can! We didn't like Mullet Bay Beach, but that was just us. Found it too quiet, and didn't like sliding down the sand to get to the water, but it was very popular for families. We truly had no major issues, loved running around all day and coming back to this beautiful villa. Stay away from the time share scams, they will just waste your time and believe me nothing is free! Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home, we will definitely be back and will recommend this to our friends! I am not sure about staying here with kids (ours would need a hotel with other kids and activities) but the room for the kids is fabulous and the pool is excellent!"

  • Perfect Place to Relax in Comfort on Vacation

    "This was our third vacation in St. Maarten and the first at AquaMarina. The unit and grounds are as advertised; just bring your swim suit and sun glasses as Bruce & Joyce have equipped the unit with everything you need!!! We will definitely be staying here on our next visit to the island and recommend to all couples looking for a quiet place to relax while still being close to the beaches & restaurants. Thanks Bruce & Joyce The Jackson's"

  • Great property in excellent location

    "My family of 10 have returned from a 2 week stay at this great property. A wonderful 2 week stay and we really appreciated the speedy response to some of the minor inconveniences we experienced at the start. The property overall is in a great location, convenient to Phillipsburg and the beaches with amazing views. Natasha was a pleasure to deal with and very responsive to our texts/calls and a big thanks for escorting us to the property on our night of arrival. Bedrooms and bathrooms are large with all you need. You will need a vehicle to get around on the island and make the most of a visit. Would definitely stay here again."
