About Mark Maidwell

Growing up here in the 70s and 80s was a great adventure for me. After spending 7 years in St Louis and San Antonio for college and work I decided to return to my island.. and my family.

I am an aircraft engineer, an avid cyclist and love snorkeling the crystal waters. I live adjacent to the apartment in a separate house and am usually always around to assist you in any way.

Mark Maidwell purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Mark Maidwell chose Simpson Bay

I grew up in Simpson Bay from the age of three years old. My dad used to build large catamaran boats on this same beach but the company moved to Cole Bay. I have always loved this area and jumped at the opportunity to buy here.

What makes this apartment unique

In St Maarten, the electricity and / or water service can at times be disrupted. This apartment is hooked up to a standby generator that automatically comes on if the city power does go off. The apartment also has a cistern and pump in the event that there is a city water disruption.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mark, thanks you for an incredible stay. The apartment is beautiful and truly relaxing. We can't wait to come back to st martin and stay again. Best of luck with the cycling and perhaps some spearfishing.

sincerely Adrienne, Ngumen and Julien.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Mark's place for six nights. The place is just like the photos and is in a great location near the airport.

Kitchen is fully stocked with whatever you'd need to cook (we didn't) and having the washer/dryer, wifi, and dish network were great extras.

Rent a car...its a great spot to explore the island from. It isn't needed, but it definitely gives you more freedom to move around.

Don't worry about being too close to the airport it's actually pretty cool seeing the planes up close right from the balcony. Plus, there aren't really many flights after sunset anyway.

Thanks Mark and hopefully we will make it back to SXM.

VERY NICE STAY...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at TopDeck apartment towards the end of march, actually we just got back. Let me tell you a few things about the place, it is clean and modern. Mark is a very nice guy and his wife was also. The location in Simpson bay was great, easy ride to town and to the french side. We visited many places, including Mullet bay beach which we loved, also Baie Rouge beach, Indigo Bay Beach. Our favorite was Mullet, get there early cause there is no parking if you are late. We also spend time in Philipsburg for shopping. Our favorite restaurant was Capuccino in Town across the street from the french bakery on the dutch side, the food there was great and daily specials are under 7 dollars for Chicken Breast, Rice, and plantains, they have a different special every day, highly recommend this restaurant.

We also had lunch at the Indian Restaurant above McDonalds recommended by Mark the owner of TopDeck. Food was spicy and very nice, loved it.

Now, we should mention that the traffic is horrible and you could be stuck between topdeck and the simpson bay bridge for hours, so have a back up plan just in case, we also need to mention topdeck is next to the airport, so planes are landing and taking off right next to it, it is very noisy at times.

Having said all that, we will book Marks apartment again with no problem, we were up early and gone most of the day having fun and none of the CONS mentioned above bother us.

St. Maarten is a beautiful island, friendly folks and VERY CLEAN. WE LOVE ST MAARTEN AND WE LOVE TOPDECK :-)

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. The traffic was unusually bad at the time you were here. Rush hour at around 4 to 530 pm can get a bit slow. Usually the one really bad time for traffic is the week of the Heineken regatta each year in March. Hope to see you again.

Super Spot to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just finished a 2 month stay at this property, this was one our best trips ever. The accommodations were everything the pictures show, very clean, good location and good service when needed. The Simpson Bay beach is as good as they get on the island, walking distance of the main Simpson Bay restaurants. We highly recommend this

icredible, love the planes passing by

  • 5 of 5

an excellent stay, Mark is a great host and has answers for your questions. He doesn't impose at all. The place is beautiful and modern and 15 seconds from your own beach. We felt like it was just us alone everyday relaxing. You don't need a car but it is cheap to rent once you arrive, public transit is easy and you can walk to Maho beach to see the KLM747 take off, and walk down the strip in 5 minutes. The groceries are cheap, everything is cheap. The property comes with great 3 dog security and 3 cats all friendly and sweet. I miss this place already!!! Thanks again Mark

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the listing and photos are accurate. As members of Marriott timeshare we appreciate quality. This property would qualify for category 4 in their system. The most impressive feature is the kitchen utensils and cutlery. The owners were most helpful. All our concerns were addressed. We also enjoyed the dogs and the cat which occasionally visited us. Anxious to return. Rubin and Ellen.

Simpsonbay Beach
Car: recommended

The Simpson Bay beach is a spectacular almost 2 mile beach with its breathtaking ocean views and white sands. Simpson Bay is an old fishing village. The the beach is not as well know and therefore usually fewer people.

A short drive and you are close to everything. There are so many things to do in less than a 15 minute drive. Just past the airport here is the famous Sunset Beach Bar where the planes practically land on your head Youtube has so many videos.

There is a newly opened causeway bridge that crosses the lagoon from end of the runway at simpson bay to almost at the french border. You will no longer have to drive in the traffic to Cole Bay..All around much less traffic due to the addition of this new road.

This means that now a drive to the french side takes about 5 minutes.

Numerous restaurants and bars, casinos, water sport/ fishing activities, bicycle/ kayak rentals at Trisport with further info on eco type tours. There are shops, spas, golf, tennis,marinas with ferries to other islands, water sports and a movie theater. The capitals of Philipsburg on the dutch side and Marigot on the french side offer many interests including duty free shopping and restaurants,
