About Linda Tucker & Jamie Lear

We've been vacationing in St. Maarten (always on Simpson Bay) for 30+ years. Now that we're retired, it's great to be able to spend more time there.

When the La Siesta Residence complex was built in 2006, we purchased Sea Place (2nd floor/2 BR which is unit B2). We loved it so much that when the A Building was completed in 2007, we purchased Sea Belle (ground floor/1 BR which is unit A3).

Jamie likes the A3 unit for the convenience of walking directly out to the pool. My favorite is the B2 unit because I like the view from the 2nd floor balcony and I like that the master bedroom also has a great oceanfront view.

Using the Internet made it very easy for us to share our vacation homes with other beach lovers. We now have many repeat guests, who like ourselves, have gotten hooked after one visit and keep coming back. Vacationing in St. Maarten is a pleasurable addiction that you just can't kick.

Linda Tucker & Jamie Lear purchased this condo in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Linda, Once again our holiday was Tres Magnifique! This was our third trip to St. Martin, and the second time we have stayed at Sea Place. (It was reserved last year) Sea Place is spectacular, you have thought of everything. Each morning we would walk the few blocks to Atlantica French Bakery for fresh pastries then return and have breakfast on the veranda. One day, we took the beach chairs and lunch to Orient Beach and spent the day. Another day we took the ferry to St. Barts. We used Great Bay Express in Philipsburg (Bobby's Marina) The fare was $80 round trip. Parking was easy and plentiful. Late afternoons would find us at the Yacht Club Marina to watch the yachts coming and going. In the evenings we would enjoy dinner out, Marios Bistro on Christmas night, and Il Nettuno, in Grand Case on Christmas Eve. This year we found that Restaurants in Grand Case, Marigot, and Sandy Ground, that charge in Euros, no longer accept "tips" charged to credit cards. They ask that tips be in cash. Each evening we would choose a restuarant from your list and were not disappointed. Perhaps one of the best kept secrets in Cole Bay Sint Maarten is Cafe on the Bay. Great food and service. They also have happy hour. We spent many hours on the beach or at the pool just relaxing. It doesn't get any better than that.

Thank you so much for sharing Sea Place with us. We are already looking forward to next year.

Absolutely Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property and it's amenities are absolutely awesome!!! My fiance' and I stayed here for a week in August '07 and had the time of our lives!!! This villa is just gourgeous and everything that you could possibly need is there. The maid service was outstanding and oh so pleasant. We cant wait to return again and enjoy the comforts of this villa. The location is convenient and there's no other place that we'd rather stay. Highly recommended!!!

A Fabulous Celebration Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Sea Place for two weeks as our celebration/vacation for our 40th wedding anniversary. Most days our minds reflect back to wonderful memories we created during our visit to St Maarten. We found Sea Place as we searched for accommodations for our visit. From the very first inquiry of Linda, she provided timely information to help us plan our trip. Her condo is beautiful and very comfortable. She has made every effort to make your stay feel like you are at home. Anything you may need during your stay, she has probably provided. Hermaine and her sister will freshen up the condo for you. They are lovely ladies and will provide assistance if needed. We loved being on Simpson Bay. We enjoyed watching the cruise ships and airplanes arriving and departing. Even the many boats docked in the bay were a beautiful sight. We did rent a car and enjoyed exploring the island and visiting other beaches. Linda provides you with great information needed to enjoy your stay. We visited many of the suggested restaurants and renting a car with Martine was a breeze. Linda provides you with a wealth of information for your trip, probably more than a travel planner. She is just an email away for you. We hope to return to St Maarten in the near future and will definitely rent from Linda again. Thank you Linda for sharing your lovely condo with us and making our 40th Wedding Anniversary so special!

Honeymoon in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sea Place from May 12th to the 19th after our Destination Wedding at a nearby resort in St. Maarten. We were greeted with a bright, clean, beautiful space and a bottle of congratulatory champagne in the fridge :)

Sea Place has absolutely everything you need for a very comfortable stay. It truly felt like a “Home Away From Home”. The view of Simpson Bay from the balcony is spectacular, and the ability to open up the living room and bedroom sliding doors to merge the indoor space with the outdoor space was amazing. A private grill for cooking great meals, new stainless steel appliances, a very comfortable bed, and the a/c worked great too…Sea Place has it all!!!

Simpson Bay is an ideal central location to explore the island. Renting a car was a breeze and the onsite parking at the condo very convenient. We loved this place so much that we are returning next year to celebrate our one year anniversary!!!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!!!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 22 year old daughter and I stayed at Sea Place Villa for a week over Christmas. It was one of the nicest, cleanest, well stocked rentals we have ever stayed in. The furnishings, appliances, dishes, beds, linens were of high quality and everything was organized and labeled. We spent mornings and evenings enjoying the very large balcony overlooking Simpson Bay. Watching the boats, yachts and cruise ships was one of our favorite past times. Everyday we would venture out to a different beach. The location of the condo is good for traveling to either side of the island. You could walk the beach in front of condo but winds and tides were too high (while we were there) to put out a beach or lounge chair. Pool was nice but we only used it a couple of times. We usually ate a large lunch at one of the beaches we were at and cooked a lighter dinner back at the condo. The kitchen has everything you could ever need. We bought fresh seafood from Skipjacks seafood market just down the street and cooked it on the grill for dinners. On Christmas Eve we ate at the Charter House restaurant, which is also very close by. The service, food and view were wonderful. Linda was very easy to deal with and covered everything in detail. We would definitely rent Sea Place Villa again and definitely recommend to others. Only negative was the large grill boxes stored in my daughter's bedroom. There was no place to move them to so she just worked around them. Not that big of a deal compared to how wonderful everything else was!

Wonderful condo - okay location

  • 4 of 5

This 2-bedroom condo is very well appointed with top-of-the-line amenities, including a large deck with 4 lounge chairs and a dining table with 6 chairs. Daily maid service, which is unusual for condo rentals, is a nice touch. The owner was very responsive -- from initial inquiry to end of stay. The pool is located in front of the other building and is accessible through a coded security gate. The pool area is nice, clean, and secluded but has limited shade and is not ideal for children (somewhat small, limited space). There was a family with children staying in the other building during our stay -- most days, they were out; however, when the children were at the pool, it was quite disruptive. That said, there is a beautiful, unobstructed view of the sea from the pool deck. The only real downside is location, for a couple of reasons. The 2 buildings are separated by an empty, unkempt lot, and the surrounding neighborhood is underdeveloped, with some rundown houses on the street side. Further, while situated directly on the beach, the beach area is not usable (too small for sunbathing and rocks, etc at water's edge). A sandy-bottom swimming area is accessible, however, via a short (2-4-minute) walk down the beach. The Simpson Bay area is chock-full of restaurants, which - depending on your definition of walking distance - are close by. Overall, this is wonderful condo in a secluded area but not ideal for "beach people" who want a directly accessible sunbathing/swimming beach.

Great condo

  • 4 of 5

Positives - central location, great sunsets, great balcony, well-appointed interior, and most everything is pretty new and well maintained

Negatives - some mosquitos on balcony around sunset (repellent supplied at condo), 3 codes to keep track of for entry (pool-yard access gate, condo complex entry door and Sea Place entry door), neighborhood noise primarily noticeable from front bed room and kitchen with doors closed (roosters start before dawn, and music from clubs until 3:00 AM on Thursday through Saturday.

Recommendation - have a great time at Sea Place, but take some ear plugs and white noise generator if you are a light sleeper.
