Charming Apartment in a Great Location

Booked a last minute Christmas trip to escape the cold to St. Maarten. I looked at some of the hotels in the vicinity of Cupecoy and found some but none impressed me. I found this great apartment on homeaway.com. The apartment was exactly what I needed and strategically located to all the activities I wanted to do while in St. Maarten. The apartment is modern, has all the amenities to cook and have your own food if you like. It has a sweeping view of the lagoon and has great fresh air at night to cool the apartment (note it also has an air conditioner that works very well in the bedroom). The apartment was very comfortable and cozy, well maintained and very clean. Being strategically located - short walk to Mullet Bay, Cupecoy (for sunsets), and the Atlantis Casino. A slightly longer walk to Maho (say 15 minutes) and access to Simpson beach to see the planes land. It is a great apartment to have if you like to drink, as you don't really need your car. The apartment is close to all the beautiful beaches that are predominantly in the French side (Prune Bay and Baie Longue) and a 30 dollar cab ride to the great restaurants of Grand Case. It was SO convenient to get to the airport for my day trip to St. Barths. Everything is convenient here, including a short drive to supermarkets. Marigot is a 10 minute drive with a lot to do. The apartment is a great great value for its reasonable price.
Equally as gratifying to me as the apartment, was the congeniality and kindness of the host, Toufiq. He picked me up at the airport (on Christmas Day!) and was always available for calls/texts on suggestions on restaurants, things to do, how to make international calls, ... He was so generous by providing me with snacks and water in the refrigerator, knowing that markets would be closed on Christmas.
The clean and pleasant room, coupled with being located walking or short drives to everywhere I needed to be, AND the graciousness of the host makes this an great place to stay and a bang for the buck! I had a tremendous time there.
