We are looking at renting a home on Beacon Hill Drive this coming summer. Is there a grocery within walking distance to that area? Are there restaurants? It looks like it is adjacent to where the planes fly over the beach but I cannot see what the buildings are around that on the aerial view. We have 10 people with us so trying to avoid having to rent a car for the week....if things are not within walking distance is it difficult to get a cab to come to a house? Thank you for your input!!

I am not to familiar with that area and just check on the map. It would be easy to get a cab. I would say that once you fly in get a cab to your house and then ask for a buisness card. However, with that said you would be really missing out by not renting a car. This island is great to explore and go to lots of resturants. As far as I know (correct me if I am wrong) but i do not think that the area you are staying has a lot of night life or the best beaches. 10 people will be hard to find a rental car that fits everyone though. There is a grocery store near by in simpson bay. Where the planes fly over is fun, but not the best beach to hang out at every day.

Hi Jennifer,

Yes there is a grocery store in the area, right next to casino royale which is about a 5-10 min walk- as for restaurants and nightlife, there's tons in Maho, sunset beach bar is great for happy hour and good bar food, there's a bunch of good restaurants within a 5 minute walk of there, different cuisines too- 2 casinos 2 night clubs pizza places, plenty to do in Maho- but if I were you I'd splurge and explore out a little- go to the French side which is gorgeous or even bai rouge which isn't more than a 15 min cab ride from Maho- or go eat down in Simpson bay, lots of great food there too- Lee's, and Buccaneer bar for bonfires at night--"" short cheap cab rides
