We liked the proximity to be able to buy some groceries, as well as to be able to walk (8 min) to Mark’s place for dinner ( delicious, great service and so much variety). This property was very relaxing and clean. We would return.

A Very nice stay
We really enjoyed our stay for a night before a cruise. Service was excellent and the staff even picked us up at the airport. So very nice - bed extremely comfortable, a nice kitchenette. A lovely pool! We will definitely return the next time we are in St. Maarten.
