About Janet Huculak

We had visited St. Maarten several times and love the island and this vacation destination! We are originally from Canada and now reside in the US. Being in the airline industry, it is unbelievable watching the planes fly in over your head at Maho and even for non airline buffs. You don't tire of watching the range of aircraft, from KLM 747, Air France, to the small interisland aircraft buzzing in between. Whether you enjoy the beaches, duty free shopping, casinos or sightseeing, there is so much to do, yet the opportunity to sit back and relax with a good book! We hope you will enjoy our home during your vacation stay!

Janet Huculak purchased this condo in 2009

Janet was excellent , very quick in answering any questions. The condo was clean, great views and in a great location near everything in Maho.

Thanks Janet!

Beautiful, spacious, tones of convenience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this gorgeous condo for 10 days. This was our second time staying in Maho. This location is perfect and safe for walking down to the strip for dinner, live music, or the casino.

The condo itself is gorgeous! the decor is nice, the beds are very comfortable, and there is no shortage of Windows. There are 2 very large bathrooms so if you are there with friends or family, everyone has lots of personal space.

This condo is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need!

There are 36 beaches on the island so we travels around visit is as many as we could. The pool was in great condition. We had a really nice relaxing day there. No fighting for pool chairs either!

... Side note, take the ferry over to Anguilla. You can catch it in Marigo and it leave s every 45 minutes. We went to Shoal Bay which is on the top 10 of beaches in the world. Just breathtaking.

I will absolutely stay again and I would recommend this to any one, any age group, and type of travel.

Definitely staying here again!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for us from the beginning. Janet was a pleasure to deal with and the place was amazing. You can tell that they are expert beach goers by the chair and umbrellas that were left for us to enjoy. We definitely got great use out of those staying on Mullet Bay until sunset.

The unit was the perfect locations and just far enough from the Maho strip to maintain a nice level of quiet. We love everything about the unit and location and would highly recommend staying here. We will definitely ask to come back.

Great stay in St. Maarten

  • 5 of 5

Super convenient location near Maho nightlife and Mullet beach was perfect for our stay. We also found it very quick and easy to get to the French side. The condo was super clean and furnished with every thing that we could possibly need. We spent many hours is the pool which was maintained in perfect condition. Highly recommended!!

simply the best, better than all the rest, as the saying goes!

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples traveling to St. Martin and Janet's condo was perfection. You could not ask for more! Clean, modern, extremely well equipped, comfortable, a place we would love to call home. The location was great, walking distance to Maho shops, restaurants casinos, and YES it is safe! Close to the airport but never heard any planes , building was very sound proof. Pool and hot tubs were right out the front door always quiet and peaceful. Great pool and patio area to relax and enjoy. Janet was great to work, even emailing during our stay to make sure everything was ok. We have been many times to St Martin and we will definitely be returning to Janet's condo. Do not hesitate to book this outstanding property, you will not be disappointed. A TRUE GEM with great owners! Thank you for a delightful stay!

Very well furnished condo, just a little disappointed

  • 4 of 5

The condo itself was very nice--clean, extremely well furnished with everything you could need, and big. It was a very large condo and would be quite comfortable for two couples or a family. There were three negatives that keep me from giving it a 5 star review. First, is that the pools, hot tub, and outdoor showers were not working. While they were not "closed", they were only partially full, and very dirty. The pools and hot tub were part of the appeal of this location for me, so when I arrived and saw the letter from building management, that they had been working on the pool drain for over a month prior to my arrival, I was a bit frustrated. The property manager also stopped by and told us that we could use the pool, but the reason they looked dirty was that the vacuum wasn't working. Second, I found the bed in the master extremely uncomfortable. I like a plush or a pillow top bed, and it was very firm. Great if you like firm beds, but I had a hard time sleeping there. We did not use the second bedroom, but it seemed to have a similar bed.

Lastly, I have a mixed reaction on the location. It was very nice in that it was a 5 minute walk to the Maho area with shopping, restaurants and nightlife, and a 10 minute or less walk to the Sunset Beach Bar. The problem was that it's a very secluded walk. I wouldn't have felt comfortable making the walk at night by myself or even with a girlfriend. The first thing you see when you get to the edge of the Maho area is a bunch of taxi drivers, buses, and security officers at night, which made me question the area. That being said, we were very glad that we could go out and have a few drinks at night and not have to worry about driving in the crazy St. Maarten traffic at night.

Owner's Response: Pam, we take a great deal of pride in our 5/5 star rating and ensuring our guests have a wonderful vacation and stay in our condo and I apologize that you weren't 100% satisfied with your stay. I appreciate your feedback so we can address the issues and ensure that all our guests experience a 5 star stay! To clarify on the pool - when you advised me of the pool situation I had reached out to our property manager who then had stopped by to explain to you that there were issues with the drain and yes, the water was below the skimmer while they continued to troubleshoot and because of this the pool couldn't be vacuumed, however it was usable and it was about a 10 day period for this to be fixed. She did also brought you flowers to help celebrate your anniversary! There was a similar issue with the showers that has now been fixed. With our communication during your stay you had not mentioned anything about your concern with the bed to me or the property manager. We could have provided a pillow top mattress cover which may have addressed your specific concern on the comfort of the bed. Regarding your concern on the location I would reference the other reviews from previous guests where this has not been a concern. There are street lights from our entrance for the short 5 minute walk to Maho and yes, the taxis, bus and security people are at the corner in Maho since this is the main parking area for everyone going to Maho. Again, thank you for your feedback and we will continue to work to make every guest have a 5 star experience!
