Cant stop telling people what a great time we had here! Hosts Betty and Phil are awesome. By the time we left we felt like we were leaving home. Almost everyone staying there were repeat guests from past years and already knew each other and welcomed us as if we were old friends. Some high lights: Optional Happy Hour on... More

We loved our stay at the Horny Toad Guesthouse. The staff and regular guests were so friendly and made us feel right at home from the start. The daily cocktail hour was a great time to get the scoop on what to do and where to go. The beach in front of the property was beautiful and with a short... More

My husband and I had a great time staying here. We were in the upstairs room with a balcony and front facing to the beach. It was awesome. We spent mornings on the balcony with our coffee enjoying the view and lovely weather and evenings with a glass of wine on the balcony as well. Our room didn't have much... More

We have stayed at "The Toad" several times and will go back again. Steps away from the water, a short walk to the store, clean rooms with a well-equipped kitchen, a great staff and friendly neighbors. The warm Caribbean breezes flow right through your apartment! It's a perfect getaway and a good value. Beautiful sunsets, too!

I wanted a location that was safe, clean and well located in Simpson Bay. HT delivered on all counts. The Owners were very friendly and gave a good welcome/orientation. The cleaning maids were very polite and amenable. The little kitchen had everything we needed. Value was great as we were in the low season.

Betty and her staff are wonderful with the guests - friendly, approachable and helpful. The Horny Toad is within walking distance of several restaurants/bars and just a... More

Delightful ocean front guest house. Very clean and well kept, close to restaurants and grocery stores. Betty and staff very friendly, and a non smoking facility. Looking for a quiet relaxing holiday this is a great place.

Very clean and great service. Can't beat the relaxation factor of stressfree vacationing. Send them your grocery list and they will stock your favorites upon arrival. The friendly staff (Gloria and Cherry) are always a pleasure. The "social" sunsets are a nice way to get to know the other guests and build long term friendships. Simple and basic the way... More

The Horny Toad is a deliberately small and distinctive guesthouse known for its congenial and unpretentious atmosphere.

The guesthouse is on the beach and provides beach chairs, towels and floats. An outdoor barbecue pavilion with two Weber gas grills, table and hammock allow you to enjoy dining beach-side. Simpson Bay beach is a beautiful, uncrowded mile-long beach - just a few steps from each apartment - great for walking, swiming and sunbathing.The Toad has been awarded Fodor's Choice Award each year including the most recent in 2012. They called us the "island's best value" on the Dutch side of St Maarten.This is a No Smoking property. No children under seven years of age, please.
