My new husband and I rented this property for a week in St. Maarten for our honeymoon. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!
We arrived on 3/31 from SJU to be met at the airport by one of the owners Isabelle. She took us to the rental car place then we followed her to the beautiful home. The pictures don't do this property justice. She took us through the property and showed us where everything was, which was very helpful. The master bedroom was truly amazing. She had also set up complimentary welcome drinks for my new hubby and I upon arrival on the terrace. The house is very open and all rooms overlook a crystal clear lagoon. We were able to sit on the dock in the morning to drink our coffee then take the kayaks out and look at all the fish. We tried looking for the eagle ray, that we named "Bob" but despite all our efforts he was very elusive...
Most of the time at the house was spent either on the terrace with the great breeze or in the pool, which was very well maintained. We spent a few nights there grilling and drinking cocktails out on the deck. However I would highly suggest taking some time to go to the amazing restaurants the island has to offer as well.
There was also snorkel gear and a wind surfing board provided, but we will have to get to that on our next trip...
The house is very centrally located on the dutch side. Maho beach was a short 2 minute drive. The island is small, but I would definitely suggest a rental car to explore all that it has to offer.
Upon check-out we were also able to meet the other owner, Capt. Francois Garcon. With my new hubby being a pilot as well, they immediately clicked. He was very friendly and had some great stories to share about his travels around the world. We got so caught up in conversations and cocktails that we almost missed our flight home (which would have been okay too!!).
All in all, this was a perfect place for out honeymoon!! The pool and terrace area is very private. We were able to sit out there and listen to music at night, but we also got a chance to meet the neighbors while hanging out on the dock chumming the water for Bob. Everyone was so nice on the island!!!
We would highly recommend renting this place!! It was great for our honeymoon, but with 5 bedrooms, would also be great for large groups!!
It was more than we could hope for and we will definitely be returning!!
Thank you so much for a very special and memorable honeymoon!!!
