This was by far the nicest place we have stayed at in our 12 visits to SXM. The best part of this beautiful furnished condo is the location. It’s right on Simpson Bay Beach and a 5-minute walk to Mary’s Boon and Karakter Beach Bars. The beach was very private and some of the best snorkeling is just a few feet from the beach. Also, there is an abandoned barge that is partially submerged just off shore and an easy swim with fins, which affords some spectacular opportunities to see a large variety of fish.
The condo itself is perfect with two large bedrooms, extremely comfortable beds, 2 full baths, a well-equipped kitchen with plenty of dishes, cooking utensils and appliances. The furnishings are in great shape and very comfortable. We really did not spend much time inside during our two-week stay. Luckily, we had fantastic weather and most of our time was spent outside at the pool and/or beach. Though, the other occupants of this small complex share the pool and beach, and most of the time we were the only ones at the pool or on the beach. There is plenty of parking and we liked the security of the electric gate. We felt very safe and secure during our stay.
We did visit a few other beaches, Friars Bay Beach, Le Gallian, Grand Case and Mullet Bay. We also visited Marigot and climbed the hill Fort Saint Louis, Lotiere Farms, sailed to Tintamare with Captain Neil aboard the Celine, diving in Grand Case with Octopus Diving Center, and took Bluebeard Charters to Anguilla where we met the famous Bankie Banx at his Dune Preserve. Bankie is a famous reggae star that has performed with Jimmy Buffett. Wherever we ventured, we always looked forward to returning the condo, enjoying a cocktail, watching the boats pass by and listening to the waves on the beach. It is truly a very peaceful and relaxing location.
There are several restaurants that are close enough to walk to, although, we chose to drive. Places we dined at include, Pizza Galley, Jimbo’s, Pineapple Pete’s, Mary’s Boon, Karakter’s, Buccaneer Beach Bar, and the Ocean Grill on Wednesday nights for all you can eat ribs (YUM). For our farewell dinner we tried the new Sushiito Restaurant at the Princess Port de Plaisance casino. It was fabulous!!
We truly enjoyed this trip to SXM more than any of our prior trips and are certain that is attributed to the accommodations, location, and the fact that we were dealing with a very informative, responsive and caring owner. It was a pleasur
