We had a fantastic stay with Neil & Marilyna. The photos do not do this place justice. Beautiful view & great spot to watch the airplanes. Private, spacious, quiet, safe neighborhood & use of their beautiful pool & courtyard. Fantastic hosts, You couldn't ask for more.
Neil and Marylena went out of their way to make us feel at home in their extremely comfortable apartment, and helped us with everything we asked for. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in, and huge, and the pool is massive and well maintained. The view from this apartment has to be seen to be believed - looking out over the lagoon and the airport provides endless interest. The location of this apartment couldn't be better, but you definitely need a car. It is a short drive to Simpson Bay (Dutch side) which is a great place, and 10 minutes drive to Marigot on the French side which has good restaurants and shops. This apartment has the added advantage of being in a gated community with 24 hour security. As a general tip for visiting the island, I would recommend newcomers to listen to Island Radio on 91.9 FM. The adverts are hilarious, and it is always topical, and gives you a good insight into island life. Don't miss La Bamba beach bar, Karacter, Sushitto and Lagoonies and Pineapple Pete's. For a great day out you cannot beat Loterie Farm and Pinel Island on the French side, or Dreams on the Dutch side. If you stay in this apartment you are ideally placed to enjoy all the best that SXM offers at the same time as having a super place to call home. I would highly recommend this property.
Great place - Neil & Marilyna were very friendly and welcoming. The place was spacious and comfortable, and we felt like we had our privacy the whole time. The only downside was that without a car it is hard to get to things, but with a vehicle it is a perfect place!
Neil and Marilyna are the perfect hosts! No exaggerations here. Very informative about restaurants (Johnny Bs, Rosemarys), culture, beaches, etc. Friendly, accessible with two great dogs and even turtles. They set up a rental car for us. Accommodations were better than described. Views outstanding. Just 10 minutes from the airport and convenient to all points on St Maarten/Martin. Beach towels and umbrella available. Secured neighborhood and parking. Here's a tip for you…Check out Plum Bay, near Long Bay for one of the most beautiful and uncrowded beaches you will ever see.
We had an excellent time in St Maarten, with many thanks to Neil and Marilyna - their pictures really didn't do the place enough justice: full kitchen with all necessary cooking utensils, living/dining room, very spacious en suite master bedroom with huge walk-in 'closet room' and a back deck facing the sunset with pool overlooking the bay. As advertised, the house was in a gated community and felt very safe, and there was a large grocery store conveniently located near the entrance to the neighborhood.
Marilyna was on-site most of the time to take care of any needs, and the only potential problem (small miscommunication with airport ride) was solved before we even arrived. While there was some renovating going on at the property during our stay, it was not invasive and the resulting improvements will be appreciated by future guests.
This was our 3rd trip to St. Maarten in the past four years. We decided to try something new and rent an apartment for 3 nights of our 7 night vacation. We were not disappointed. Neil and Marilyna have a beautiful, private entrance apartment attached to their house in a private community in Cole Bay. The view from the balcony, overlooking Port de Plaisance and the southeast section of Simpson Bay Lagoon is amazing. The apartment was nicely furnished, very clean and accommodating. One of our concerns whenever we are on vacation is a comfortable nights rest; the king sized bed made it hard to not want to sleep-in while on vacation, extremely comfortable. We spent multiple evenings watching the sunset, sitting in the gazebo on the patio drinking wine and sitting poolside with the incredible views. Neil and Marilyna are very friendly hosts and were very responsive whenever we had questions. Upon returning from our vacation, we highly recommended to friends to check out this rental when visiting the beautiful island of St. Maarten, we will definitely look to rent this apartment on our next trip to the island.
Everything was perfect! Beautiful apartment and beautiful view! I really suggest this place!
