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 a wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time trying VRBO and I can't tell you what a wonderful experience it was for us. After Irma we didn't really know what to expect of our home away from home, but this place was beautiful. Had everything you needed to feel you were at home. Only thing we wish was different was the fact that we didn't stay there longer!!!

Spectacular Unit in Simpson Bay!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a 13 night stay at Sea Palace Villa. If you are a St. Maarten lover, like us, and your normal accommodations were destroyed by last fall's hurricanes, then Sea Palace is a great option. The unit is extremely clean, and is well cared for by two very special housekeepers that due an awesome job. The patio is just as the pictures show and is really the best feature. The kitchen is well appointed - the owners have gone above and beyond to make it very easy to use....just like home. Bedrooms are well sized, with comfortable bedding. Bathrooms are really only meant for one person at time, but who didn't hamper our stay, we weren't looking for a spa. The unit is centrally located in Simpson Bay, which makes it perfect for getting out to all of the great restaurants, beaches and shopping - it's worth pointing out that it is located on a mainly "local" residential street- meaning, fewer tourists (which are located at least several 100 yards away). Booking arrangements were easy!!! Linda was great to work with.

We look forward to returning again soon.

Beautiful condo, fast owner response, well appointed kitchen, close parking, sweet cleaning lady

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this condo. We absolutely loved sitting on the terrace, watching the amazing cruise ships go by, seeing the huge yachts and small sail boats in the gentle waters of the bay. The sound of the waves is so soothing. Beach is not wide but the sand is fine and water is so clear! There are plenty of supplies (towels, beach towels, toilet paper, paper towels, hair dryer, close-up mirrors in bathrooms, even sun tan lotion and bug repellent), the kitchen is well appointed with fridge, ice maker, oven (we didn't use), microwave, coffee pot, dishwasher, dishes, pots and pans (nice ones!), silverware, everything you could think of. Beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms were small but clean. They were really too small to share, though. You have to take turns (especially because there is no separation between shower and toilet). There are instructions, helpful tips, recommendations for dinners in the condo. Linda is very responsive to email requests for information. We bought bottled water but found the local water to be very drinkable too. We walked down to Mary's one day for breakfast but usually drove our rental car (get a small one - roads are narrow) around the island to various restaurants. Food on the island is amazing. Even the beef was tender and delicious. The fresh fruit and vegetables are delicious. This condo is located in a great, quiet neighborhood. When we first arrived we were a little concerned with the appearance of the houses and poverty in the area but the whole island is like this. Very poor and very rich living side by side. The people were pleasant and the security precautions in the condo were great (just in case). The location of the condo is nice - very drive-able to the whole island.. We would definitely recommend you stay there!!

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolutely the best place we have ever stayed! The condo was beautiful and clean. The view from the balcony was breathtaking. Beautiful sandy beaches, close to bars and restaurants, and lots to do. We rented a car and toured the island. We will definitely be back!

Heaven on earth !

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 4 days , 3 nights in this beautiful ocean front condo ! It was perfect . This seller was so thoughtful about leaving notes and recommendations, every draw was labeled with the contents of it. The soap, shampoo included in the beautiful bathrooms. Great thick towels and Bath mats, beach towels , everything you would want or need. The view is amazing and we loved the huge balcony and did not want to leave !

The only negative is we couldn't stay longer 💚💚💚

As good as we remembered!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Sea Place over Christmas. The unit is very clean, extremely well stocked and a good location in Simpson Bay. The beds and pillows are just as comfortable as we remembered them from last year. The location is good for accessing Dutch or French side beaches and restaurants. We could also walk into town within a few minutes. Every morning and evening was spent on the huge balcony watching cruise ships, yachts, sailboats and catamarans. Wonderfully entertaining! Linda is easy to rent from and supplies you with a wealth of information. We will definitely rent again.
