“Great view of the bay, good location, and very helpful staff”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

My wife and I stayed here for one day on our way back home from Dominica, and we had a wonderful experience. Our room was set directly on the beach, maybe 20 steps from the ocean. They do a great job of maintaining the beach right outside, so you're guaranteed a pretty view.

That was all great, but the best part of the stay for us was how helpful the manager was. We wanted to plan a day activity, and she dove straight in to help us, even assisting us plan out what would eventually become an unforgettable day-trip to Anguilla (side-note, DEFINITELY consider this if you have time, as the beaches are about as pretty as you will ever see)

So very nice lodging, great views, good value, but the topper for us was how friendly and involved the management was in making sure we had a good trip.

Room Tip: As best I could tell (verify with them) all the rooms were lined up with beachfront access

This was our second time staying at Beachside Villas - the facility is still well maintained by all staff members - I believe they take pride in their work as the units and grounds are kept spotless.

We again enjoyed the fact that we could sit on the deck and walk right into the clear blue of the ocean and the beach is almost private meaning there are basically only the people staying at Beachside villas who are swimming on the beach -

Once again a great stay and I would have no hesitation in recommending Beachside Villas to anyone looking for a great non-hotel vacation in St Maarten.

Just returned home from my second stay at this great villa. The water was extremely rough but it didn't matter the pool is a wonderful spot to be if you are like me and afraid of the ocean. There were days where the water was very calm and very enjoyable. The villa's are kept immaculate the staff are wonderful. I can't say enough things about these villa's for me this is the only place to stay while on the island. I love watching the planes take off and land to me it is back ground noise and the beach is great to walk if you are into that. Overall once again it was a great vacation still seemed to short even though it was for 2 weeks. Can't wait to return to the Beachside next year. Sometimes I am afraid to write such a good review too many people will find out about this and there might not be anything available when I go to book. :(

Just returned from 5 nights at beachside villa's. The place could not be better. If there is a better beach on the island I would be surprised. It is on the Dutch side a short way from the airport. You can walk to the famous Sunset Bar. That place is a real treat, it is located at the end of the runway and people gather to get sprayed by sand when the planes take off. The hotel has housekeeping every day except Wednesday. They all have grills and there is a swimming pool. The beach has the finest of sand.

If you are looking for paradise, look no further. From the moment we walked through the front door and saw the beautiful blue waters of the Caribbean in front of us we knew without a doubt we had made the right choice when we selected the Beachside Villa's for a 3 day stay prior to our Caribbean cruise aboard the Windsurf out of St. Maarten. The Villa showed the pride of ownership that you would expect when you were possibly staying in "the owners unit". Clean and beautiful. It was truly a joy spending time on the beach in St. Maarten.
Super staff that made you feel like a honored guest.

We just returned from our trip and had a wonderful time. The villas are a few feet away from the ocean and it was so relaxing sleeping to the laps of the waves. I read the complaints about the planes flying over, and we didn't think it was bad. I could see where it might scare young children, but adults should be fine. My husband is an airplane buff, so we went in viewing the airport as being an attraction. It is down the road from the Sunset Beach Bar and there are unique eateries right on the beach just down from the villas. The staff was friendly and the maidservice came every day we were there. We took friends with us and they aggreed that the villas were perfect. The common areas do not have air, but the breeze flows in from the ocean. The bedrooms are equipped with air and they cool quickly. All in all - we loved it and are even planning a return!

If you're looking for the best beach on the island, plenty of space (we rent the three bedroom villa), and a central location, there's nothing that can beat Beachside Villas. This is our second time at Beachside and third stay on the island. We'll never rent anywhere else. We have two children, six and thirteen, and it is so awesome to have the doors to the villa open and see them so close on the beach. The villas are located perfectly to where the porch has a good breeze and shade all day. This is great for my mom who cannot be in the sun for long. She can stay on the porch while we are in the ocean and still feel a part of the fun. As well, the pool area has a large, covered space with views of the pool and beach. It's perfect for drinking coffee when the kids want an early swim. We also love the close proximity to Maho beach and Sunset Bar. We enjoy watching the planes and have never been bothered by the noise. Planes start taking off around 7 am and finish around 10 pm. We're usually up early and only the largest planes are even noticed. The staff are also tops. They seem to love their job and wanted to do their best to make our stay even better. After my son asked about the coconuts, the groundskeeper brought us over 1/2 dozen and helped us harvest the coconut water. We loved it! Thank you Yolanda and Telly for making Beachside a wonderful family memory. We can't wait to return!
