Great stay, but some things to note...
I stayed at this property for two weeks, to attend my medical school graduation on the island, and have a vacation. I enjoyed my stay very much. Everything looks just like in the pictures, and is clean and well maintained. The villa overlooks Simpson Bay Lagoon, and the views are breathtaking, especially with the huge window in the living room. The villa is located on the second floor of a three storey building, and there is a long set of stairs leading down to it (much easier going down then coming back up, but this didn't bother me at all). There is parking available, and the community is gated. Having lived in SXM for two years previously, I find this location to be the best for those wanting to vacation.
Toufiq, the owner, is friendly and welcoming. He greeted me personally upon my arrival, and gave me a brief tour. He is easily reachable by email, and is very quick to respond if you need anything. Housekeeping was provided once during my two-week stay.
Two things I wish I would have known, however, are that the living room does not have air conditioning (just in the bedroom), and that the "sofa bed" in the living room is not really a sofa bed (just a regular sofa).
The huge window in the living room does open quite a bit, so if there is a breeze, it's perfect. However, on some days, when the air is almost still and the sun is out, it can get very hot! Overall, this didn't bother me tremendously, but I definitely do wish that the living room had an air conditioner. The A/C in the bedroom works perfectly, though, and cools the bedroom very well.
My mother came to attend my graduation, and stayed with me for a few days. I had assumed that, like the listing states, the sofa bed would be a sofa bed. But this was not the case. Toufiq was very accommodating, however, and first promised to bring a single bed before her arrival. Later, he opted to instead to get a private bedroom (small with sink and A/C, no bathroom) in the building next door. To get to this bedroom, one must hike all the way up, enter the gate next door, and hike down. My mom opted to sleep on the sofa instead (despite the fact that it wasn't a sofa bed), and found it be be comfortable (she is rather small, though). So I think this apartment would be perfect for a couple (the bed in the bedroom is a large, king sized bed), but less suitable for families.
I did enjoy my stay overall, and highly recommend this apartment, as long as you are aware of the caveats I mentioned.
