About Mark Maidwell

Growing up here in the 70s and 80s was a great adventure for me. After spending 7 years in St Louis and San Antonio for college and work I decided to return to my island.. and my family.

I am an aircraft engineer for American Airlines, an avid cyclist and love snorkeling the crystal waters. I live adjacent to the apartment in a separate house and am usually always around to assist you in any way.

Mark Maidwell purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Mark Maidwell chose Simpson Bay

I grew up in Simpson Bay from the age of three years old. My dad used to build large catamaran boats on this same beach but the company moved to Cole Bay. I have always loved this area and jumped at the opportunity to buy here.

Here is a walk to the beach.

What makes this apartment unique

In St Maarten, the electricity and / or water service can at times be disrupted. This apartment is hooked up to a standby generator that automatically comes on if the city power does go off. The apartment also has a cistern and pump in the event that there is a city water disruption.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for having us. We had a great time at Top Deck and look very much forward to staying here again.

Warmest regards, Bobbi and Rick

We love staying here and Mark and Roshitha are lovely hosts. They're always available for any little thing. The ocean is at our doorstep and restaurants and grocery stores are close by. We'll be back! Linda S.

Great location and property

  • 5 of 5

My wife, adult son and I spent a week at Mark's place as we got our daughter settled into AUC (medical school), and it was great. Location is convenient with beautiful Simpson Beach about 100' away. Proximity to conveniences (markets, restaurants) are within walking distance, or a few minutes by car. We felt very safe, and the property is in great condition. With our daughter now on the Island, "We'll Be Back..."! Thanks, Mark and Roshitha, for letting us stay in your place!

Describing it as wonderful would be an understatement!

  • 5 of 5

Our third time staying at this apartment and it's just perfect. It almost feels like a home away from home. It's clean, quiet, convenient and peaceful and just a second away from everything. We will certainly be back for stay #4. Since our last visit, they added a rooftop deck which is lovely for having coffee in the morning or cocktails at night. Couldn't ask for better hosts!

Greatest place to be, Wonderfully Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I can´t agree more with all the precedent reviews. This is like home (with absolutely everything you need) but in paradise. All of the pictures, descriptions, and amenities listed were 100% accurate. The owners (Mark & Roshitha) have literally thought of everything to make you feel like a welcomed guest in their home. All beach gear as described in their listing and all beauty appliances are provided. Just bring a toothbrush, swimsuit, and let the beauty of the island and condo surround you. Also appreciated was a welcome binder full of valuable information.

Hope to be back again.

Two weeks in paradise!

This was our second time staying at Topdeck and we reserved for 2018. The apartment and location are perfect. The beach is nice and close and almost deserted. Lots of restaurants near by as well as grocery shopping. We love it!

Simpsonbay Beach
Car: recommended

The Simpson Bay beach is a spectacular almost 2 mile beach with its breathtaking ocean views and white sands. Simpson Bay is an old fishing village. The the beach is not as well know and therefore usually fewer people.

A short drive and you are close to everything. There are so many things to do in less than a 15 minute drive. Just past the airport here is the famous Sunset Beach Bar where the planes practically land on your head Youtube has so many videos.

There is a newly opened causeway bridge that crosses the lagoon from end of the runway at simpson bay to almost at the french border. You will no longer have to drive in the traffic to Cole Bay..All around much less traffic due to the addition of this new road.

This means that now a drive to the french side takes about 5 minutes.

Numerous restaurants and bars, casinos, water sport/ fishing activities, bicycle/ kayak rentals at Trisport with further info on eco type tours. There are shops, spas, golf, tennis,marinas with ferries to other islands, water sports and a movie theater. The capitals of Philipsburg on the dutch side and Marigot on the french side offer many interests including duty free shopping and restaurants,
