Just got back from a two week stay at the Amazing Runway Villas on the Lagoon, Mullet Bay/Maho Beach area. What a WONDERFUL hostess and situation. Privately owned villas, gated community, each meticulously maintained and extremely private. Some were on the market for 1.2 - 1.7 million dollars. The hostess, Daniella, was suberb. Very informative, pleasant, friendly and very helpful. There is the villa that she lives in and then two separate bedroom/bath suites that she rents. Each has it's own front door and back door leading to a spectacular open air/outdoor kitchen, dining, sofa/chair area that is totally covered and equipped with full fridge, huge gas grill/cooking surface, micro, coffee/espresso maker, sink, cabinets with everything you need to cook, make a snack, drink, etc. That open air/concept kitchen is open to a very clean and inviting private pool. Pool is only used by the two rooms of guests. When we got there our vacation overlapped with a single man in the other suite. He was ending his vacation and we only bumped into him once when we offered him a Caribe beer. Then there was a female who was only there for a few nights ending her stay on the island. Was introduced to her and only saw her at a beach bar. When we were leaving another guest was checked into that second suite but only saw him briefly. Since we stayed for two weeks we utilized the pool, sun deck, kitchen more than others but we would have coffee and breakfast outside, use pool and then be out for the day. Was great to come back, sit outside under the stars or take a night time dip in pool and have complete privacy. There is a private garage to put your car into and I would suggest renting a car on the island as there is much to see on both Dutch and French sides. Our room had AC that worked well, huge overhead fan, tv, cabinets, shelf with tv and safe. Bathroom had stand up shower. We were in the "purple" room--the "blue" room has a larger bathroom. Very clean. Very convenient to Maho and Mullet beaches, shopping downtown Maho and the beach at the end of the airport runway where all go to watch the planes land and take off. I almost hate to write such a great review as I want to keep this place a secret. For the area, amenities, price you cannot go wrong.
