Great studio in the perfect location
We spent 3 wonderful weeks at Kim and Gert's Simpson Bay Yacht Club condo. We've been travelling to St Maarten for 30 years and had always wanted to stay at the SBYC. The condo is a roomy studio with a full well equipped kitchen and a nice garden view. It's an easy walk to either of the 2 pools which overlook Simpson Bay Lagoon. One of the pools is good for swimming laps as well.
Kim and Gert are very accommodating and hospitable. They live in the Yacht Club and are always available either by knocking on their door or sending a message through VRBO messaging.
The location is perfect with great restaurants and beaches in walking distance. There are two great sit down or take out bakery/breakfast places right in the neighborhood. At La Sucriere, one of the bakeries, you can also get yummy sandwiches to take to the beach for $6. Bavaria, across the street is a really good German restaurant that has a Friday night outside barbeque and happy hour that should not be missed.
This is a gated community with guards on duty 24/7 so security is not a concern. The guards get to know you and open the gate as you drive or walk up. We would definitely stay here again.
Perfect location in Simpson Bay
While trying a different approach after 25 years of visiting St. Martin, we discovered this little jewel among the Simpson Bay options. The location was perfect for walking to almost all our favorite breakfast, lunch and dinner choices. The Patisserie was a block away and the tennis courts were outside our front door! The condo itself had all the amenities, including a very comfy king-sized bed, a brand new flat screen TV (Kim will understand this), big enough kitchen, washer/dryer and ample bathroom. One of the two pools is right out the patio entrance as well. The living area faces east so it was dark inside as the day went by and we could have used stronger light in the evening. Kim and her husband were wonderful hosts and ready to help out in minutes.
Great little condo
I'd really like to give the condo 4.5 stars as there are only minor touch ups/upgrades that could be done to make it 5 stars. Kim was an incredibly hospitable and responsive owner, prompt and courteous responses to and inquiries I had.
I enjoyed my week stay here in the Simpson Bay Yacht Club, seems like the immediate area dodged any significant damage from the hurricane as all the amenities were in operating order and just some minor clean up/touch up work being performed in the neighborhood. Location is ideal for walking to many restaurants/bars in the area so you could just get away with riding a shuttle or taxi if you want to get out of Simpson Bay, no car really needed in my opinion if you stay local. Kitchen was adequately stocked and furniture was quite comfortable. The condo had all the linens one would need for pool, shower, bedding, etc. Internet was quick and reliable for the duration of my stay.
For constructive criticism as I mentioned before the place only needs a few things to be near perfect, some kitchen drawers can be finicky about opening and some fresh paint inside would update it's look. Lastly the screen/netting to allow the sliding doors to be left open is kind of ineffective, if there's a slight breeze the netting will blow in allowing bugs to fly into the condo. Would recommend finding a way to secure the bottom to the floor and perhaps use velcro on the sides to keep sealed around the opening.
Overall a great place to stay and would recommend it to anyone needing a conveniently located and well appointed place to vacation around Simpson Bay!
