About Jackie

Dear Prospective Renter,

Our goal is to provide you with a great vacation experince, at the very best price. Whether its Halloween, joining 'The King & I' for great fun with his beautiful wife Thelma and friends @ Cherri's cafe,

your wedding anniversary, any special occassion, or just tired of life, your job, the cold, or searching for the perfect get-a-way; St Maarten/St Martin may rejuvenate your Soul!

Bios: I am Terry S. Tamblyn'The Captain'

a happily-married retired Charleston, SC Harbor Pilot. I'm a world traveler,avid golfer,cruiser, fun seeker & like to be where the action is; hence The Caravanserai Beach Resort in the Maho area of St Martin (my spelling for the whole island) I will be handling all contact and rental information.

Mike King: 'The King', Retired from the insurance & printing business, and is an entrepreneur exstroidinare. He is also happily -married, loves the island, and spends a great deal of time there, as his 2nd residence is in Coupecoy. He has also been one of my best friends for over 20 years.

Jackie purchased this condo in 2009

Why Jackie chose Maho

After traveling the Caribbean extensively for over 30 years, St. Maarten/St Martin became my overwhelming favorite destination. The Maho Bay area offered everything I was looking for: fabulous beaches, sun, fun, incredible restuarants, bars, nightlife, and gambling. With almost anything else your heart desires, among varying cultures, being only a short drive away. The people are among the friendliest, courteous, and helpful of any island I've ever visited. It was an easy choice for my destination wedding 7 years ago. My wife and I return several times a year. When Caravanserai Beach Resort started new construction, purchasing was a no-brainer. My partner loved the Island so much, he also purchased a magnificent 2nd personal residence in Coupecoy. We would like the opportunity to show how we can put our experince to work, making your vacation a memorable sensation.

What makes this condo unique

Location, Location, Location: Proximity to all of life's pleasures, wants, and desires in a first class resort, located on an island that must be the closest place to Heaven on earth.

Great condo!

  • 4 of 5

Great location. We walked to Simpson Bay beach, Maho Bay beach, & Mullet Bay beach from the condo! Dollar bus is awesome and they stop wherever you want to get off. Tons of great places to eat nearby. The pool and property was awesome. Jackie was great and very helpful! The only down side to the condo was that it had ants. We had to keep every food item in the fridge. They were just little ants so not a huge deal to us. Awesome holiday!!

Great Budget Rental for Couple

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in Maho at this rental! The room was just big enough for us (a couple) and we loved the property. The resort was very nice and the pool/bar area was very conveniently located on the property. We took a taxi from the airport to the resort, but took the local buses around the island for the rest of the trip (for about $1.50/person each way to wherever we were going), which was very convenient and economical! Buses run nearly all day and we could get one any time we needed by walking over to Maho Village. We visited a few places around the Dutch side of the island and never needed a car for anything we wanted to do or see. We went to Phillipsburg for some duty-free shopping (but make sure to go on a day when shops are all open and there is at least one cruise ship!) and jet skiing for only $50/half an hour for two people on a jet ski. We ate at The Blue Bitch Bar and it was excellent. We went to Simpson Bay and went on the Aquamania Lambada Boat Tour to Prickly Pear and Anguilla--HIGHLY recommend this day trip with a great barbecue lunch and open bar on the boat!! We went to dinner at Lee's and lunch at Topper's in Simpson Bay, which were both great. We had great french pastries and desserts at La Sucriere and The Taste Factory, also in Simpson Bay. In Maho, we went to the Casino Royale, which was the best casino on the island. We ate at Sunset Beach bar, Sopranos, and Fashion Cafe, and had great drinks at The Dream (at the resort) and Driftwood Boat Bar (strongest rum punch we had!).

The listing for this rental was very accurate. The condo was small, but we knew that when we booked the property. The rental was exactly as pictured and included all items listed in the description, which was great. The property was very clean and uncluttered, leaving us room to fit all of our things in the condo. Terry was very helpful in answering our questions about the island and provided us with a great list of restaurants, shopping, casinos, recreation, etc. before the trip so we could plan ahead. He was readily available when I called with questions before and after we booked with him.

I will definitely recommend this property to anyone going to St. Maarten. Terry was great to work with and I would recommend any of his properties to friends and family!

nice place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

I NEEDED A PLACE TO GETAWAY FOR A FEW DAYS, SO WE WENT TO ST. MARTIN TO RELAX. THE CONDO WAS JUST WHAT WE NEEDED. TRANSPORTATION WAS RIGHT THERE. WE DID NOT NEED TO RENT A CAR. RESTAURANTS WERE WITH IN WALKING DISTANCE. THE APARTMENT WAS CLEAN, BUT THE PILLOWS WERE FLAT. THERE WAS NO DISH WASHING LIQUID IN THE APARTMENT WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN HELPFUL. THERE WAS NO GARBAGE BAGS IN THE ROOM. THERE WAS ONLY TWO BATH TOWELS, AND NO WASH CLOTHES WHICH WE COULD HAVE USED.THE BEACH WAS RIGHT THERE, AND THE VIEW WAS THE BEST. THE PEOPLE AT THE CONDO WAS VERY HELPFUL. BUT THE INTERNET WAS DOWN THROUGH OUT THE WHOLE BUILDING FOR our FULL STAY. WE WILL RETURN AGAIN ON OUR NEXT VACATION. THIS PLACE WAS RELAXING.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a nice stay overall. Hope internet is back up, as I head down tomorrow for 2 weeks,. Maids should provide wash cloths, dish soap , and garbage bags with check out cleanings. I'll check & provide essentials when I arrive, if they are not.. There are only 2 towels(for this very small unit) supplied with each cleaning, but you may request linen & towel exhanges for a $15 fee, and there are also nice pool towels in the lobby you may exchange for free anytime.

Modern, Clean and Affordable in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We rented from the Captain March 29 - April 5, 2014. We loved it. The studio is small - but it's big enough. It was modern and clean and the front desk was very helpful. The view is amazing - so close to the ocean it was like being on a cruise looking off the balcony. Overall our rating:

The Good:

Location, location, location. Literally 2 minute walk to half a dozen restaurants and a few bars, including the famous Sunset Beach Bar. We watched planes coming in every day from the balcony and the beach. Just a 5 minute walk into downtown with shopping, restaurants, and clubs. Literally next to the airport. You could walk if you wanted - taxi charged us $4 per person. You can walk to Sunset Beach-2 minutes, Maho Beach 10 minutes, Mullet Bay Beach 20 minutes - we walked to all of them with all our beach gear with no problem.

Affordability - Oceanfront at this price is a steal. And it's not just this rental but the entire island is affordable. We found food and beverage prices to be the same or less expensive than our hometown (Rehoboth Beach, Delaware). Bucket of 5 bottle beers $10-$15 depending on the bar/restaurant. Seafood dinners $10-$40 depending on where and what you order.

Transportation-We canceled our rental car and walked or rode buses with some taxies. Public bus to Simpson Bay - $1.50 per person. All the way to Phillipsburg $3. per person from the resort. The buses run constantly - never waited more than 5 minutes for one. And they were safe. Tourists and locals ride them. The island 'buses' are privately owned 15 passenger vans with signs on the front of them. We took a taxi from Marigot back for $25 (French capital on the other side of the island).

So Much To Do: Tours to St. Bart's and Anguilla, Market Day in Margot, the Boardwalk in Phillipsburg, Orient Beach - did them all and loved them.

Room has a Keurig and traditional coffee maker. Free American coffee and Croissants in the lobby every morning. Swim up pool bar was fun.

The Bad: Resort needs some attention. Our room and view were perfect. Our elevator worked but we saw the time share side needs attention. Bring mosquito spray. No beach at resort but literally 2 minutes walk to Sunset Beach. Bring extra hangers.

We will be back. We've been all over the world - Sint Maartin is our new favorite!

Great condo for a couple

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on st Maarten and took a taxi ($4 per serson) to the resort. Check in was easy, the room had great amenities for us. We mostly ate out during our stay on the island as the food is wonderful, but the microwave was great for leftovers. Bed could have been more comfortable, and the nightclub next door was loud and blaring music until about 3 am on two nights, but the room was very clean and otherwise great. I will say however, that the group of travelers staying at the resort was "older" so there are not great activities for younger travelers. The view was excellent though, and overall the room fit our needs well, especially for the excellent price. We would stay here again.
