“Look no further...great villa!”
Reviewed February 20, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Our group of 4 couples just rented Casa Sunshine in Guana Bay for a week. We had a great time. The villa is huge & beautiful, certainly the jewell of Guana Bay. Often we have a hard time renting a villa where all of the rooms are fairly equal, as we split the rental cost equally, 4 ways. Here we really didn't have any issues...3 rooms faced the ocean, and the 4th one was still quite large, so all were happy. We were met at the airport and driven to the villa...it couldn't have gone any smoother. Our rental cars were waiting there, along with the property manager, who answered any and all of our questions. We were given a local cell phone to use during our stay which was very handy for making dinner reservations. For most of us it was our 1st trip to St. Maarten, and we had a ball. The outside pool/deck area is quite spacious and gives a beautiful view of the bay. It was pretty windy while we were there so the surf was up, but we went in anyway. No much you can do about that...We ate in town 3 nights, Simpson Bay several nights, and stayed in twice. We also have lunch several times at the Sunset Bar/Restaurant by the airport...we had a ball! We had no major problems at the villa at all...but keep in mind that there is no bottled water (we were told it was best not to drink the tap water by the manager) or salt, pepper, coffee, etc., so we went shopping right away. There is a very large supermarket about 15 minutes away that everything you could want. Overall, our trip went quite smoothly, and I would not hesitate to return to Casa Sunshine on a return trip to St. Maarten! Rent with confidence!

“Beautiful Home right on the beach”
Reviewed January 30, 2015 for a stay in October 2014

This is a beautiful property right on the beachfront. We stayed with 6 other couples and had a great time. We were there during a tropical storm which was the downside of our trip. The home is well taken care of and the owner is very nice.

“Put's the Saint in Maarten!”

Wow. A week of pure beauty and luxury. We were a group of 10 with plenty of room. Loved the openness of the villa, with ocean breezes plentiful. The 360° views from this villa are beyond description. Beautiful ocean from the front, St. Bart's off to the right, and mountains out back. The location to great dining is a short 10 minute ride.

The house is very clean, with attention to detail. All very attentive to our needs.

This villa is a must for your next trip. We have been traveling together yearly for 20 years, and this is by far the nicest home we have rented. In addition, the local people are very friendly. No wonder why it's called the 'Friendly Island'!

“True ocean front luxury- rent with confidence ”

Our family stayed at this large ocean front home. The location is true ocean front and the quality of the beach/sand was stellar. The fit and finish of the home was nice and the flow served our large group well. Seating for 14 at one indoor table and large outdoor areas allowing you to soak up the steady ocean breeze! The property caretaker was very helpful and attentive. Highly recommended for families or groups of couples. This was an easy rental experience from SKY !

“Wonderful home right on the beach, it was fantastic”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

Everything went smoothly from beginning to end. Adam, and his team were great in putting everything together for us from beginning to end. We were met at the airport by Paul, with a car, a van, and a cooler with drinks. Paul picked up our luggage, and we were off, he got us to the home quickly, and there we met the home caretaker, Mr. Miller. Mr. Miller let us in, showed us around and gave us the keys. Mr. Miller checked on us about every other day, and both Paul and Mr. Miller gave us cell phones to call them if we needed anything. One day an A?C unit went out, we called Mr. Miller and he had an A/C company out to fix it in less than an hour. Great customer service. The location of the home is perfect, close to almost everything, yet on a very private, quiet beach. The kitchen had everything we needed, and we used it quite a bit. We called Paul several times for suggestions and rides to various places on the island. He was a great help. We loved St. Maarten and will be back next year...In this same house.
