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.

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.

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.

Condo of our dreams! Truly Paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Where do I even begin? We stayed here back in May 2016, and from the second we walked in, we were blown away. The condo itself was absolutely gorgeous. A mix of modern and "caribbean/beachy" vibes. The views are magnificent, truly something to see. But our favorite part was the humongous balcony in the back that spanned the entire width of the condo/building. We probably spent more time on there than anywhere else. Theres a large table out there to eat your meals and several lounge chairs to relax and watch the beautiful sunsets. There's actually two ways to get onto the balcony, one through the living room and one through the master bedroom. Can't beat that view from your bed! At night we would leave the shutters open so we can see the stars from our bed and allow the natural sunlight to wake us up in the morning. I don't know why a couple reviews complained about the area. Obviously these people haven't been to the Caribbean much. The local residents are actually very friendly and would wave to us, especially the young kids. Theres several dogs that hang out on the block that belong to the locals, so drive slow. They are also friendly. I think the location is perfect. Less than 3 minute drive to many resturants and supermarkets. About 8 minute drive to the Maho casino area. 15-20 minutes to the Cruise terminal area/Great Bay. (amazing views on the drive there, going up hills and seeing the ocean) But back to the condo itself, I loved the bathroom, it was very modern and the rainfall shower was great. Kitchen had every appliance you need and also washer/dryer. I couldn't say more good things about this condo and island.

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!!!

Sea Place Villa was by far the best place we have ever stayed in our entire lives! The unit is absolutely amazing and the views leave you speechless. Everywhere there is amazing views from the bedrooms to even the shower. The condo is incredibly well equipped, from the kitchen to all the equipment provided to enjoy a fabulous time on the white sandy beach which is just steps from the door. Very comfortable beds and furniture. We enjoyed sitting every evening on the balcony listening to all the waves. The ocean water was so warm and clean we spent most of our time in there, although the pool next door is also a nice way to cool down. The house keeper and building managers were so friendly and professional. The condo is in a very safe neighborhood all the locals are super friendly. We rented a car but you can easily get by without one, many stores are within easy walking distance, to do some more island sight seeing I would recommend a car. Be prepared for narrow roads. The restaurants in Saint Maarten are fantastic. Such amazing food! If you are into airplanes you have an amazing vantage from the condo to watch all the planes come in and take off. I would rent from Linda again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend 5 stars
