Friends have been staying here every year, and now we see why. Right on the beach, walking distance to market, studio kitchen, and optional cocktails on the beach with other guests make this like staying in our own neighborhood. Comfortable bed, clean, and nice to have a sitting room. Hosts are super accommodating, and provide a downstairs shower & changing room so you can enjoy the beach as long as possible after checking out but before heading to the airport on your last day. Other plusses - hammock, plus community room with computer & TV.
Quiet except for the occasional planes flying nearby (which we loved, thought it was a bonus to get to see them close up and the noise was never when we were trying to sleep).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Horny Toad is a deliberately small and distinctive guesthouse known for its congenial and unpretentious atmosphere. The original building is a former governor's house tastefully renovated into spacious, fully-equipped apartments. Each of the eight apartments is delightfully different, displaying a personality of its own. All rooms have fully-equipped kitchens, king size beds, complete baths with shower, and daily maid service. Fresh flowers are arranged in the units every day. 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.
