BSV was exactly as advertised. 10 days in villa#8 with two other couples and 50 yards too the ocean. Cleaned daily, cold air conditioning, hot water for showers, soft as all get up towels, fridge kept beers cold, 24 hour security and ALL the staff personable and helpful. Comfy beds, satellite tv etc etc. Quiet beach with great views, walkable access to bars and restaurants. Observation deck to watch the flights is a nice place to hang out until you need to cool back down in the ocean. Beach dogs will stop by to share a snack with dog lovers in between their hunting for lizards. Easy check in process and the booking process with Tracey was easy peezie. We will Definetly be back!

Apr.21-May1. Just had the most perfect vacation with 11 great friends and family. Rented 2 -3 bedroom villas!! Wow. They are absolutely perfect . I have travelled all my adult life and I have to say this is top of of the list!! Sure it has a lot to do with great travel buddies but it also has a lot to do with the place and the hosts. Right from the planning stage till our last minutes on departing day. We had many changes in the planning stage and our hosts were soo accommodating to each and every request!! The villas are magnificent and contain everything you need. You just have to pick up some groceries and beverages and you are good to go!! Even had some welcoming beverages waiting in the refrigerator upon arrival! Very nice and appreciated touch! Villas are huge and bright and so beautifully decorated. Sitting right on the stunning beach of white sand and breathtaking turquoise waters. It is within walking distance to loads of hotspots and entertainment and when I say walking distance I refer to walking distance even with a bum knee and feet LOL Grounds are beautifully landscaped as well. It seems that the villas are smack in the middle of everything, even the airport which was really cool and planes don’t land or take off from early evening until the AM . The airport was more of an entertainment for us than a distraction!! And the sound of the ocean drowned out everything anyway. They provide daily housekeeping services . Don’t want to speak of any issues because we really didn’t have any but a cpl minor things that when a call was made they were tended to within minutes!! Thank You so much!! It was our first time to St. Maarten but definitely not our last! Will definitely be returning and in fact I believe our group travel planner already has us booked in at BSV for 2023!! Thank You so much Tracey, Drew and staff❤️ We are from Cape Breton and well known for our hospitality but I must add that the people of St. Maarten are right along side us❤️❤️❤️

Finally! I have always wanted to stay at BSV and timing and availability worked in our favor. We are two women, late 50s (# only) rented the bedroom unit and a bathroom in each room. Place was impeccable from the minute we drove through the gate (key code). Grounds were beautifully manicured with gorgeous palm trees and flowering bushes. Units are bright, airy and super spacious. Tastefully decorated with an island feel. I didn't want to leave. Open sliders from master bdrm or living room onto the super long deck with tables/chairs/loungers and take a few steps onto to most gorgeous stretch of Simpson Beach. A long, walking beach that I took advantage of daily and got my steps in. The staff goes above and beyond. Emmanuel, property manager is great too. We had a late flight out and luckily no one booked our room so we were able to do a late check out and enjoy a full day on the beach. We enjoyed the full kitchen and had some meals in as well as made our coffee and tea each morning. Kitchen has everything you need. Refrigerator came with some complimentary water, soda and beer waiting for us on arrival which was a nice personal touch. Will only stay here for all future visits.

Between myself and various members of my family, we’ve stayed at BSV at least a dozen times over the last 3 years. The location and privacy is unbeatable - each unit is beachfront, with direct access to the beach and your own chaise loungers on the sand and on the porch. It’s incredibly relaxing to fall asleep and wake up to the sound of waves! The property sits on a long stretch of beach - so if walking or running is your thing, you have the opportunity to greet the sunrise with a nice 1-1.5 mile walk along the shore. Or just watch it from the comfort of your porch - it’s the most peaceful way to start the day! Houses are well equipped with full kitchen, living room, multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, and even a grill delivered to your porch, if preferred. Housekeeping comes daily to clean up, replace towels, etc. During the evenings and overnight, security walks along the beach to ensure privacy. It’s also an ideal location for family with kids - on days that the ocean might be a little rough, there’s a pool and they provide floaties and toys for kids. Tracy is always super responsive when arranging accommodations, and while at the villas, Vicki and Emmanuel are always helpful. ALL of the staff take great care of their guests. They genuinely care about their guests and will go out of their way to accommodate any of your needs. To be clear, I was not solicited or asked to provide any feedback whatsoever … I was just compelled to write this because I saw the previous review alluding to intrusion of privacy and nothing can be further from the truth. BSV is a piece of heaven on earth and we’re so lucky to have found it!

After many vacations to this property we are very disappointed by the on property management at this property in the owners absence. Vicky and his wife have the intrusive habit of walking the property video taping vacationers every move for the property owners back in Michigan. It is hard to enjoy a vacation when every time you turn around their manager is recording someone on their phone who what reasons one could only imagine. We found this property many years back managed by the Mascrin's parents Telly and Yolanda looking back 15 years or more. The current point of contact being there son Drew and his now separated wife Trixie has turned this property into a true intrusive vacation. On our most recent visit the owner Drew's past wife was on property and made us feel so uncomfortable we wanted to relocate. We decided to ride out our stay and find a new vacation spot for future vacations. There is a uncomfortable feeling while on this property of a alternative lifestyle being present involving the management and owners. Please be advised there are many other places that are worthy of your vacation dollars than this great vacation location under the past owners Telly and Yollanda.

Response from Drew M, Owner at Beachside Villas
Responded Apr 4, 2022
This entire review is almost not worthy of a response considering you have not been a guest for quite some and did not have a reservation for your stated ‘date of stay’ but we do have a reputation to uphold so we are happy to address your other lies as well. Unfortunately for us, you seem to have some weird vendetta against Beachside Villas ever since we were unable to accommodate your last request to return because we were fully booked….strange coincidence that you THEN started writing completely false and insulting reviews (which you seem to enjoy doing evidenced by all your other negative reviews of various properties, restaurants, etc) A few examples that you are not a reliable source of information: We don’t know anyone named Trixie. Our staff has been with us for over 20 years and is beloved by all of our guests (see every other posted review). Our staff has never taken a video of a guest…perhaps it was a requested photo by the beach or gardens that you witnessed or you just made this up. Our guest’s security and privacy is, and always will be, a priority. Please do us all a favor and find somewhere else to vacation and to direct you misguided anger and hostility.

Thank you so much Drew and Tracy for another great stay at Beachside Villas with our family and friends. Our Grandchildren are torn between the ocean and the pool as they love both. One of the best beaches on the island for sure. We have always been well taken care of by your staff who are so friendly and attentive to any small issue. We do believe it is our favorite place to be in the world. We have rented Villas, and Condos elsewhere on the island in the past but once we found BSV, we never looked anywhere else. Best vacation ever.

This is our second time staying at Beachside Villas and we can't get enough! Our accommodations are spacious, clean and situated on one of St. Maarten's finest beaches. Beautiful sunrises, turquoise waters and a wonderful patio to relax on when you've had enough sun. The unit has everything you need! Staff is friendly, accommodating and available at all times. If R&R is what you are looking for, this is it!

My family and I decided to rent a beachside villa unit in December 2021. We’ve visited sxm many times in the past and decided to pull the trigger on these villas. I don’t write reviews but I felt obligated to write this one because of the great experience I had. The location is perfect, about a 5 minute car ride from Simpson bay which is where all the restaurants and bars are. Each unit is on the water with some of the best beach frontage on the island. The beach is long and I would consider it private because it felt like we had it to ourselves. Waking up in the morning to the waves crashing on the sand is such a peaceful experience. Our unit was very clean and welcoming and the staff was friendly, professional, and accommodating. I will be returning annually for much needed r&r-hopefully at beachside villas if they’re available. Overall, St. Maarten is thriving at this time with many new restaurants and hole in the wall spots for great food. My only complaint is that I couldn’t stay longer, these villas felt like home to my family and I and the staffing made it even better.

We came down to beachside villas last week for the 2nd time since December 2020. There aren’t enough amazing things to say about the staff, location, views, overall experience. We feel like family here. The pool is a perfect afternoon spot. The constant waves crashing at the slider drown out any questions of airplane noise. Security cameras throughout the property to make our feel secure about leaving for a day. If you love a spot you can make your own for a week, cook meals in your kitchen and enjoy ocean front - OR drive to Maho (4 minutes) or Simpson Bay (9 minutes) - then this spot is for you!

How could you not love Beachside Villas? The Villas are located directly on Simpson Bay beach so you have oceanfront accommodations. A nice deck where you can sit and read, dine or catch some sun or walk down a few steps and lay out on the lounge chairs provided and then take a swim in the ocean. The villa is fully airconditioned with a full kitchen, 2 or 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. The decorations are very Caribbean and villas are well kept. They refresh and update every couple of years. The same friendly staff is with them year after year. The GM has been with them several years now and is friendly and quick to respond to any issues you may have. The resort held up well during IRMA although there was a lot of damage to the fauna which they replanted and added so it's back to being very lush. We were there twice last year and are lucky enough to vacation twice with them again this year. They also have a lovely pool with floats, comfortable lounge chairs, tables, outdoor shower and Gazebo should you want some shade.
