“Great location and lovely people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

A fantastic place to stay in beautiful st martin/st maarten. good location - next to a lovely resto/bar (great full english breakfast!) and corner shop (with lovely people) and walking distance from the strip and restaurants/bars etc. The rooms are alot bigger than expected with plenty of beds in one room to choose from! (2 of us in one room with each about 4 beds/sofas to pick from!). The kitchen is fully equipped (including sweets on the table) to use whenever needed (save a bit of cash for the night ahead!) and the lovely owner gave good advice and made the stay alot more comfortable and homely.
Thanks again and see you soon!

This is really set up like a hostel. Shared kitchen, shared shower. Separate keys for all doors. No office, you may need to find a local phone to call Bianca to meet you at the guest house. And ask airport taxi to take you to the lagune marina in simpson bay. Then call Bianca to meet you at the Guest House around the corner. Be sure you have phone numbers and address with you on arrival. Bianca provides a towel and top sheets. Fans in room, no AC. Advised to keep doors and windows closed between 6-9 pm to deter mosquitos. Otherwise very roomy, adequate in meeting one's needs. Room for 5 in one room, one big bed and 3 singles. Grocery and restaurant/bar quite near. In the local area which I liked, certainly not the touristy setting.

Room Tip: Prob only has 3 rooms. All on second floor as shower is on bottom floor. Must keep gate locked to ke...

This is not a bad deal for the price and location but make sure you understand what you are getting for your money. Also be sure to get directions as it is not easy to find, especially in the dark. The owner wasn't there to meet us so we had to borrow a phone and call when we arrived and were told to get the keys from the shop across the street. The other residents filled us in on the details (internet service, shower location) and were very helpful. Here are a few tidbits to share from our experience.
Our room was huge with lots of room to spread out and plenty of hangars in the closet area.
The shared kitchen was great for saving a little money on meals, but the kitchen lock required some finesse with the key to get it to open.
If you use the queen bed, the sheets are not large enough to cover the bed with 2 people in it.
The shower is shared with cold water only and is downstairs behind the green door.
There is no air conditioning and the ceiling fan near the queen bed didn't work while we were there. A floor fan was provided.
There are a lot of dogs nearby that bark at all hours and it is too hot to shut the windows.
There was a big gap on top of the door where the insects flew in. There was also a mosquito net around the queen bed but it blocked the breeze from the fan so we couldn't use it.
No Internet service on site. The bar next door has it but it is not accessible from the property.
We ran out of toilet paper while there and could not find a spare roll in the unit or kitchen area.
The bar next door, Lagunie's, has good, reasonably priced meals and free slow internet service.
There is a small grocery store right across the street.

Looking for a clean, comfortable, secure, and affordable hideaway/ getaway spot/ place to stay while on St. Maarten? Then "My Little Guest House SXM" is the place! I stayed there a whole week during the month of August and I felt so at home, and didn't even want to leave! I would stay there any day, any time. Clean, comfortable, and very affordable and walking distance to all the hot spots. Best part was waking up early in the morning for my morning run/jog to the Airport and back, and dip in the many beaches on my path...life couldn't get any better then that! Great value for your money! My little Guest House is my little St. Maarten secret!!!

Room Tip: Anything you need, Bianca is always on call and to deliver. I was on a solo trip but the rooms are g...

Spent one week at My Little Guest House SXM this month during my holiday on St.Maarten. Studio rooms are huge and great for groups, I don't believe that these prices can be matched! Basic ammeneties for anyone visiting St.Maarten who is just looking for a place to sleep and unwind while enjoying the island. Restaurants, Clubs etc are easy to get to from this location as well. Hostess was very friendly and ready to tend to any needs or questions. The setting of the rooms and guesthouse itself is very homey yet you can enjoy your privacy as well. It was a comfortable place to come "home" to after long days of beach, cocktails, dining and shopping in paradise.

The little guest house only opened recently, but should not be missed, if you're looking for low budget accomodation. The rooms are clean and cozy and the balcony is growing into a lovely little oasis. Located directly on the lagoon with a little bar/restaurant, cheap grocery store and laundromat less than 100 steps away from your doorstep. A 5 min walk takes you to bus connections to all directions of the island. From May to November you can rent you can rent your own room, from December to April you have the choice of renting a bed or a room. I truely enjoyed the quite and easy going athmosphere. Only little problem: there are only 4 rooms.
