Van is the man!!!

  • 5 of 5
Do you want all the amenities of home, while enjoying a front row view of the ocean from your bed? If the answer to this question is yes, then you MUST stay at Van’s place. “Van is the man” is the statement that was uttered constantly during our stay in his condo.
I don’t know where to begin to describe this wonderful experience! Well, let start with the fact that it is an oceanfront condo and you are literally steps away from the beach. Now for those of you who may get home sick, Van has a solution for that . There is wireless internet as well a computer available so you can update your Facebook and brag to all of your friends about all the fun you are having. Are you not a technical person, Van has a solution for that as well! You have free calls back and forth from the US and Canada!!! Where else can you find that in another country?
The kitchen was stocked with ample appliances, and about 3 coffee makers. In addition there are ample pots and pans, to create everything from eggs Benedict to Lobster(which you can get from a lobster shack next to the resort). You will find plenty of cork skrews, matches and candles to ensure your visit is a pleasant one.
Did you forget to bring your bug repellant, well Van has a solution for that. He leaves citronella candles under the sink to be used during your stay! Finally, the most pleasant item for me as a fan that was located in the bedroom that did not have a ceiling fan! Clearly Van thought of all the things that he wanted on vacation, and ensures that he housed them in his condo for his guest. We will be back, and I can not stop telling people who wonderful our time was.

Van, you are the man!!!!! :)

One Word...FANTASTIC!!!

  • 5 of 5
I would have to agree with the other reviews. Four of us spent a wonderful week in Van's unit at the Royal Palm. We had the best time during our stay. The location is GREAT...walked to dinner at the Pizza Galley, Lee's, Buccaneer and strolled to the Carousel Gelato shop after dinner one evening. The condo was perfect for us...ground floor walk out to the beach and palapas. We had everything we needed and then some. The cooler on wheels was perfect for keeping our refreshments cold on the beach. We would definitely stay here again.

Awesome time and accommodations! Everything needed was in Vans condo and more. Located within 20 feet of laundry room was nice. He even has a rolling cooler for the beach. For a first timer the places we enjoyed are...Sunset bar on Maho Beach, Skipjacks, great steaks at Pineapple Pete's, great Mexican at Jimbo's, Buccaneer Beach Bar was lots of fun and great music, Lambado day sail to Prickly Pear (PRICELESS) and food wonderful, Phillipsburg had great shopping and Blue Bitch Bar has great BBQ, ferry to Anguilla from Marigot (which is beautiful itself), Anquilla beautiful but pricey.....the place to go for peace and rest. I'm sure there is more but overall we had a great trip AND A GREAT place to come home to at night. Oh, MUST go to draw bridge bar and watch boats come and go. Food and drinks there are great also.

Exceeded our Expectations

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely LOVED this condo in St. Maarten, and had such a ball spending time with our family!! This condo is in a perfect location, is even larger than what the photo's are able to depict, and is literally ON the beach...being able to step out the patio onto the sand was perfect! The beach is beautiful, very protected, provides nice sunset viewing, and we had plenty of space under our favorite palapa. The pool and swim-up bar are tons of fun, too. Van Newman was so great to work with, was very helpful on the phone, and one of his suggestions to take the Prickly Pear excursion was one of our favorite events :) The location of this condo on Simpson Bay was a great starting spot for us to explore the island. We also often walked to the French bakery across the street to pick up delicious sandwiches for us to pack in our picnic lunch when we made a day-trip to other beaches. It's walking distance to a large grocery store, and there's a fun and delicious restaurant (with live music) right across the street. We went with our college age kids, and priceless memories were made!

Careful to assess STAR rating yourself. Ask more detail questions about condition..

  • 4 of 5
Wonderful location.. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Owner was wonderful in providing info and helpful info.. Unit is somewhat tired looking in interior paint and decor.. I was quite disappointed with this since rated As five star when I searched etc.. Sink drain did not work properly as plug broken....Mosquitos in unit when arrived and after couple says of bites we got notice it was time to spray for monthly prevention so we realized was due and explained what we thought...ceiling fan ...light battery dead ..windows so dirty outside could not even appreciate view until I wiped them... Otherwise loved st Maarten, great meals etc.. Do not like to ever complain but definitely would have been more excited if all above were fixed and updated for what we paid... Thank goodness location was beautiful so tried to spend most time outside...

Owner's Response: I am truly sorry that our condo did not meet your expectations. We have never had an unfavorable review and we will take your feedback very seriously.

I would have been happy to take care on the minor maintenance issues that you encountered if you had notified me of them during your stay.
I will discuss these issues with the housekeeping and maintenance departments to be sure that they are corrected as soon as possible. I do believe that the housekeeper leaves the door open sometimes when she is cleaning the condo , which allows mosquitoes into the condo. I will discuss this with the housekeeping staff as well.

We have also planned to refresh some of the décor in the condo in the near future.

As far as the five star rating in our description, Caribbean and European hotels and resorts do have a different rating scale than we are accustomed to in the United States. We did not intend to mislead you in your expectations. We do offer over sixteen pictures of the condo on the VRBO site so you can see what everything looks like before you make a reservation. I will edit that description and remove the reference to a five star resort so there will not be any confusion for our future guests.

Thanks for your feedback and I hope that you will give us another chance to ensure that you have a great vacation the next time you travel to St. Maarten.

Great unit with favorable rates

  • 5 of 5
Two couples stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit owned by Van Newman. The unit was on the south side, 1st floor walkout, only steps to the beach. What a great unit Van has. I highly recommend contacting Van as the unit is in great condition at favorable rates. It has all the amenities you want or need. The Royal Palm is centrally located in Simpson bay and you can easily walk to restaurants, bakery, market and bars. I always get a car though as we love to travel the island.

Back to the resort. The beach is great for wading and swimming as there are little to no waves in the protected cove. Stay on the south side of the beach as the north side has large sharp rocks and seaweed. The public lot on the very end of the south side attracts people to visit for a quick dip and also attracts lovers for evening make-out sessions.

The Cabana restaurant at the Royal is not owed by the resort. We only had lunch there but it was very good with reasonable prices. The bar served us drinks in thin plastic disposable cups and that kind of turned me off to drinking at the beach bar.

Overall I think you will have a great time if you stay at this resort.
