  • 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!"

  • 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."

  • Private studio in Cul de Sac

    "We really enjoyed our second stay in this wonderful, private studio. Our stay was longer this time since last years holiday was so enjoyable. The studio is fully equipped with everything you may need, the lovely outdoor kitchen has been improved and enlarged, and there's two new lounges on the deck in the private garden. We made use of the salt water swimming pool and cooked out on the grill many evenings. The hosts are very welcoming and make sure you have everything you need. The only downside is that we had to leave and come home"
