Maho Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Luxurious 1 bedroom apartment in Maho resort on the Dutch side

The apartment is on the third floor of the La Terrasse Suite Hotel. Its situation within the resort offers you maximum privacy with minimum disturbance from other guests or noisy elevators. You have a breath taking view on the Caribbean Sea and the flight path of arriving aircraft.

It comprises a large living with a fully equipeed kitchen, bathroom and a bedroom with a king size bed. The balcony is so large that you can comfortably dine there with 4 persons.

The total surface is 775 sq ft. From the living and the large balcony you have spectacular views of the Caribbean sea, the pool, tropical garden and…. the touch-down area of the runway of the airport.

Living and bedroom have separate airco’s.

The view of the landing aircraft is sensational. Although there is of course sometimes some noise when you have your cocktails on the balcony, the apartment is very well insulated, so inside all is quiet. There are no night flights.

Our guests have free access to the chairs and umbrellas on the beach of the Sonesta resort and their fitness center.

About Len Swierstra

We live on Saba Island, Dutch Caribbean, at 12 min flight from St. Maarten. The apartment is our pied-a-terre on St. Maarten. The apartment is available in periods that we are not using it ourself.

Len Swierstra purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Len Swierstra chose Maho

We are residents of Saba, a small, volcanic island at 12 min. flight from St. Maarten. We have been looking for a long time for the perfect place to spend time for shopping and relaxing.

The apartment is very comfortable, offers a lot of privacy and is suitable for an extended stay. It has a fantastic view over the Caribbean see, the tropical garden and the flightpath of aircraft into St. Maarten.

Because the apartment is situated within a hotel resort, it provides all the facilties that one may expect. The key cards, beach towels, etc. can be collected at the front desk.

There is an underground garage with security, a supermarket which is open 7 days/week till 12pm.

Public transport to Philpsburg stops at the frontdoor. Restaurants, casino, beaches, golf course, etc are all within walking distance. A real place for a dream vacation.

What makes this apartment unique

The large apartment, great balcony and the sensational view at the Caribbean sea take care of an exceptional holiday experience.

The availability of an in-house supermarket and underground parking take away a lot of common holiday trouble.

The numerous restaurants and bars in Maho Village give you plenty of choices for night entertainment. The largest Casino of St. Maarten is next door. 24 hour security in Maho Village let you safely stroll the area at night.

You can save a lot on local transport costs. A rental car is only required if you want to make a tour around the island or want to visit the beaches on the French side. For your other transport needs you can make use of the public transport busses that stop in front of the resort. A ride to Philpsburg costs you $2/pp.

Still in need of a rental car? A Herz agency is on site.

not very happy with this unit

  • 2 of 5

We stayed here for a week and were very surprised to find out that we needed to supply our own toilet paper in the bathroom, and bags to take out the garbage. we paid extra for a third person and it was only set up for two people. all linen was stained and well worn. service is only after you leave (which you pay for) and the towels were pretty rank by the time 7 days went by even after airing them out every day on the balcony. the hide a bed was not set up to use even though we paid extra for a third person. we found linen in a drawer that we could use but there was a note that stated "do not use this linen-it belongs to the owners". we had to pay $50.00 for internet for the week and that was only for two devices...which there was three of us, all with our own device.

location is good and close to a small grocery store. we have travelled a lot in the last 20 years in all kinds of rentals, much of it on st maarten, and have never experienced anything like this place. would not recommend this to anyone

Owner's Response: From the review I understand that the guests expected to stay in a suite with hotel service. In the advertisement, we describe that the suite is a privately owned unit in a resort. We make it clear that housekeeping is not provided every day, but once per week. This includes the change of linens and towels. Beach towels can be exchanged daily. In the ad it is indicated, that extra housekeeping can be provided, but at additional cost. If required this can be done on a daily basis. We, as owners, share the use of the apartment with our guests. We expect our guests to use the unit in a similar way as we do ourselves. Toilet paper is provided, but when used, we expect our guests to buy as much as they need. We advertise the suite for use by two persons. Before booking, we had an extensive communication with these guests about the sofa bed she refers to. It is not the king size bed that is provided in the bedroom. However, if the guests decide to go ahead nevertheless, that is their decision. It is a pity that the unit did not meet the expectations of the guests. But then, there are many returning guests that have a different opinion.

Great View from Balcony

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in this condo and enjoyed it very much. The balcony is huge and offer a great view on the Maho Beach, the Saba Island and the pool. The pool area is nice and never crowded. A must for plane spotters : the pool area has an elevated deck from where you see the planes landing right in front of you (no planes landing between 10 pm and 7.00 am). Would stay there again without any doubt.

This is THE place to stay in Maho

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 4 days of vacation to hang out and watch the planes at SXM. I have stayed at 2 other places in Maho, but this was by far the best. Great location and staff more than eager to assist in any way. Check in and check out was simple and smooth. Everything you need is in the condo when you walk in, and anything you might want can be found downstairs a the local market. You are just a few hundred yards from the airport terminal, a few steps from the runway threshold (a must see for aviation lovers), the casino is right next door. Good food is within steps of your door. The world famous Sunset Bar is less than a 5 minute walk down the beach and you must stop and try the Driftwood Boat Beach Bar.

The pictures and description of his property will give you a basic feel for this condo, but in reality, the condo is much nicer than you would expect. It is clean and well maintained and after I figured out how to work the light (your room key fits in a slot in the entrance way wall) I felt completely at home.

Len, the owner, was extremely easy to work with and was prompt in answering questions about my visit. I had a change in dates that I needed to stay due to airline scheduling and Len made it happen with one simple email. The security deposit was refunded in just a matter of a few days.

I can't wait to get back to St Maarten and this will be my new vacation home.

What a view!!!

  • 5 of 5

I am a regular visitor to St. Martin. It is a great place in the Caribbean, fantastic food, nice and clean beaches and friendly people. But, like many travellers, there is always the problem of the high cost of a good location or the quality of the less expensive ones.

Now I found the right place. This apartment has the view you can only dream of, it is roomy, top sleeping facilities, an in-house garage, an in-house supermarket that is open till 12 pm, public transport at the front door and a very friendly front desk staff. The owner, Len, has been very helpful and "What you see is what you get!" Not any of the unpleasant surprises I had in my other locations.Len delivered what was promised. So this is the place to return to.

John.

Excellent endroit!

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement était en très bon état et aucune surprise. Excellente communication avec le propriétaire. Huit jours de soleil, de plaisirs et de repos. Le village de Maho est sans aucun doute l'endroit le plus intéressant à découvrir. Tout près de l'aéroport, il est fascinant de voir décoller les avions mais sans être pour autant incommodé par le bruit puisque l'appartement est très bien insonorisé. We cannot wait to go back and for sure we will rent this apartment again. We certainly recommend this property.

Thank you to the owner for sharing there «pied à terre» with us!

Mooi appartement op de ideale locatie

  • 5 of 5

Wij hebben genoten van ons verblijf in dit appartement.

Ruim, prima verzorgd appartement, dat van alle gemakken is voorzien.

Balkon is een geweldige plaats om vliegtuigen te spotten en lekker groot.

Zonaanbidders kunnen tot laat in de middag nog zonnen op het ligbed op het balkon.

In het appartement hoor je niets van het vliegverkeer.

Het complex waartoe het appartement behoort, heeft veel pluspunten.

Vriendelijke receptie, handdoekenservice, lekker rustig, mooie tuin.

Altijd een ligbed beschikbaar bij het zwembad.

En bij het zwembad een prachtig uitzichtpunt op het vliegveld.

De aanwezige parkeergarage is ook handig bij het huren van een auto.

Binnen een paar minuten lopen is veel beschikbaar, zoals supermarkt, restaurants, bars, casino, Winkels zijn er ook, maar niet zo veel.

De contacten met de eigenaar/verhuurder van het appartement zijn super!!

Wij kunnen ons voor de gevraagde prijs geen beter appartement voorstellen.

Ook de locatie is geweldig.
