We had the best time at the Horny Toad Guesthouse. We had room #6 which is right on the beach. You literally walk out of your room and your feet hit the sand in one step. There was a separate living room and a bedroom. The bathroom was kind of weird because it was not a room at all, but... More

We are still here at The Horny Toad Guesthouse and we would not think of staying anywhere else on St. Martin. Each of the eight units is different but all units include a kitchen and sitting area. Each has a king bed. This is not a resort, just a perfect place for a single or couples who do not need... More

My wife Judy and I had the extreme pleasure of staying at the Horny Toad Guesthouse in October and even got to experience an unexpected and uninvited guest...Hurricane Gonzalo! This place has to be the "best bang for your buck" on the Island. Cherry, the on site manager was very kind to us during our stay and was always there... More

I have TripAdvisor users to thank for this recommendation. THTGH was an excellent price for the two nights we stayed during the off-season, the view was amazing and Cherry was incredibly hospitable. We stayed on the second floor overlooking the water. I have to admit we were a little caught off guard by the layout of the property. With the... More

If Grandma just so happens to live on a crazy beautiful beach! I have family that lives in a very small town in Nebraska. This guesthouse could have easily been located in that little backwater community. It is outdated,there is no TV, the owner is annoyed if not apprised of your late arrival. (Even if your late arrival is completely... More

If you are looking for something off the beaten track. The Horney Toad Guesthouse is great. A small intimate place that has efficiency apartments on the property. Step out your door onto the beach with beautiful views of Simpson Bay. The property has 2 floors, free parking, security, an out side cooking area for barbeques (gas grills), very clean, safe....

Fantastic location--right on the beach, which stretches about a mile to the west and almost as far to the east-- so plenty of good beach walking. Yes, a good stretch of this beach borders the airport, so you do get some plane noise, but think about it! This means there's not a row of high-rise hotels spewing people onto the... More

Found this guesthouse due to great reviews and it did not disappoint. Room, although dated, was perfectly clean. Owner was not there but manager was and she was very warm and welcoming. You are right on the beach here. Walked to several very good restaurants. Did not cook, but kitchen was fully equiped. Refrigerator in room was great. We walked... More

I stayed here for a long weekend in May. I was in a downstairs room - or really two rooms, a large bedroom and a large kitchen/dining/living area. The building opens out onto the beach. I only wish I had had more time to sit outside in the lounge chairs, as it's a beautiful location. The property is very secure,... More

I stayed here in December 2013 for one night before a cruise and one night in early January 2014 after. I felt completely safe here as a woman traveling alone and the owner, who is from the United States, went out of her way to make my stay enjoyable as did the pleasant staff. The other guests were folks who... More
