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, 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 St Maarten / Saint Martin

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.

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

Paradise in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This place is beautiful! Everything you can ask for and more. Mark was a great host and the pets on site were wonderful(especially cargo we miss him already). Beach is so close and gorgeous. Don't hesitate to book your stay there if available. The open top of the building is where the best views are as you can see the island at its best. Thanks for everything!

Perfect Sint Maarten Location!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a great 5-day stay on the island at Mark's place. The airport is indeed close but the noise didn't really bother us as we were up and out by the time planes started landing. Great views from the rooftop deck. The condo was quiet, clean and comfortable. Highly recommended. Great location on the island.

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mark and Roshitha's condo a few weeks ago and had a wonderful time. The condo was just as pictured. It was modern and clean. We enjoyed taking evening walks in the neighborhood and along the beach collecting shells and sea glass. We felt the neighborhood was safe. The condo is just a few steps to the beach. We loved being greeted by all of the animals daily (especially Cargo-he was our favorite). We had coffee on the patio or roof deck in the mornings and a cocktail at night...we liked hearing the tree frogs in the evenings..our hosts were excellent and we hope to be back one day. We would also recommend Al Pasha Lebanese food, Bombay bites, La Sucriere Bakery and The Dock which were all on the main road close to the condo. We did a day trip with Billy Bones Charter and swam with the turtles. This condo was a fabulous find and we feel very grateful to have stayed there. Thanks again Mark and Roshitha!

Warm regards,

Nathan and Nicole

We visited for 4 nights in March 2016. This is an absolutely great place! Mark and his wife, Roshitha were very nice and very helpful. We would recommend this place to anyone. Very short walk to a beautiful beach. Convenient location for dining, gambling and plane watching!! If we get the chance to visit St. Marteen again, we will definitely contact Mark! Thank you!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this property. It was everything it said it was on the website. It was clean ,modern and had everything we needed including a smoothie maker. .It was in the perfect location for us , we hired a car from round the car at a reasonable price . Mark was very helpful and I am sure if there had been anything we needed he would have tried to get it for us. His dogs were very friendly and no bother at all. We were allowed to stay in the property right until we left for the airport so Mark was very accommodating. We definitely intend to go back next year . Mark thank you very much indeed. We will be in touch as soon as we have checked holiday dates for 2017...x

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,
