our favorite hotel / condo choice, Summit Resort. It's quiet, romantic,
beautiful, comfortable, close to everything, and sensibly priced. Very well
managed, too -- in fact if you tell them you saw them on our site, and you
are a JMB member, you get a serious discount on your rate. See
www.everythingsxm.com/secret for details. Summit now accepts online
reservations: to reserve, click the link. Don't forget to tell them you
came from the JMB website. (More hotel info, links to villas, and links to
timeshare rentals are below.)
Consider a Villa: It's Less Than You Think
Villas are a great, sensible alternative particularly if you're traveling
with other couples or an extended family. They offer many amenities, more
privacy, none of the hassles you encounter at some hotels, and a price that's
less than you might imagine.
We have several recommendations, in different locations across the island:
VistaRoyale at Monte Vista in Point Blanche, just outside
Philipsburg at the most southerly point of the island, is an extraordinary
vacation rental. It offers spectacular panoramic views overlooking Great Bay,
Philipsburg and the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean, and has a private pool for
your exclusive use. It can be rented with one bedroom for two guests or two
bedrooms for four guests and has all the amenities including free wireless internet access and free local
telephone. Recently renovated. Gated area. For new photos and a 360° video tour, check out the
here. Use the online contact form to check for availability and discounts or
send them an email from the site. Mention that Jeff Berger's SXM Website suggested it! (Updated
8/1/2016.) Great place.

VILLA SEAWATCH is in the prestigious gated community of Dawn
Beach Estates, on the coast immediately south of Dawn Beach. With three
bedrooms, it affords outstanding privacy plus breathtaking views from every
room. The place is gorgeous inside and out, one of our top villa choices on the
island. Located at the top of a cliff overlooking the tropical Atlantic and St.
Barths. Very private pool. Virtually constant tradewinds. Owners Ron and Cherie
Santasiero have done a marvelous job here. Contact them at
firstname.lastname@example.org . Updated 8/2016. Highly recommended. Many pictures are here.

Villas By Location
Pelican Key (Simpson Bay, off Billy Folly Road beyond
Atrium, Flamingo, Pelican, and La Vista Resorts)
JUBELIBRA is an excellent choice, by Bobby Valins. We mentioned her
in the prior section. This is in Pelican Cove, a very lovely gated community.
All of the villas Bobby represents there have their own private pool and are
very well kept. Privacy is excellent and safety is a plus. No car break ins or
petty theft, Bobby reports.
Serabella at Pelican Cove and
L'Horizon at Pelican Cove and
Pelican Cove # 10 are additional choices from Bobby.

Dawn Beach / Oyster Pond Area
See Villa Seawatch listed
EMERALD COVE is a sponsor: Click the link, above.
Delightfully quiet, rustic location on the cove at Oyster pond, opposite side of
the sailing basin from Oyster Bay Beach Resort. When we visited, it felt like
New Hampshire, except it was 82 degrees in January and pelicans were diving for
lunch on the water nearby. An absolutely perfect place for a quiet getaway.
Comfortable; close to many restaurants and to Orient Beach.
SUNRISE ESTATE is at Dawn Beach / Oyster Pond on the
island's east coast. The main house has 4 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, and 2 half
baths, marble floors, and all imaginable amenities. Each bedroom has a private
bath and air conditioning. Three of the four bedrooms have their own entrances,
allowing for total privacy when traveling with friends. The separate guesthouse
hosts a large studio apartment, fully equipped with a bathroom, kitchen,
sleeping area, living room / dining room combo, and private patio and balcony.
The large pool and deck overlook Oyster Pond and Dawn Beach with some of the
most breathtaking views in the Caribbean. This property offers privacy and
seclusion, yet a short walk across the street takes you to Dawn Beach, one of
the best beaches for snorkeling. There are also bars, restaurants, and a small
market within walking distance. Located on the Dutch side at Oyster Pond
Estates, one of the most prestigious areas in the Caribbean. Rent this
magnificent villa for your private enjoyment. Contact

American University of the Caribbean Students (and others):
Sources of Long-Term Island Rentals
The American University of the Caribbean's beautiful new headquarters campus
in Cupecoy attracts many American medical students. We're frequently asked where
they can stay. Here are some answers. We appreciate Ric Hetzel's help in putting
this together for us:
1. Contact Walter Kassel at Tendal Real Estate N. V. 1-721-544-5383. Ric
told us "Walter is a regular customer at our place and he does help AUC students
get housing." Tendal is on the Web at
tendalsxm.com. Mention Jeff Berger's SXM website.
2. There is a ReMax office on the island and they too assist students with
housing. Call them at 1-721-544-4062.
3. David Mayhew manages Tradewinds Apartments next to AUC, which may be where
more students stay than everyplace else put together. You can email him by
4. The best place (and the newest) is the new apartment complex owned by
"Mark," a landscaper from Detroit who spends his winters in SXM. His newest
building is on the right side of Jordan Road in Cupecoy just outside the front
entrance to Summit Resort. More info:
Dear AUC students,
We are taking this opportunity to introduce you to Campus Village
Apartments, the preferred housing choice of the AUC students.
For those who have not had the pleasure to visit the premises, the
residence is located in the Cupecoy area; 5 minutes away from the AUC and
the Mullet Bay beach and golf course, 8 minutes away from the Princess
Juliana International Airport and in a booming area with everyone's favorite
restaurants, bars and clubs.
All units are set up identically: They all include ceiling fans and A.C.
in the living room and in the bedrooms.
All one-bedroom apartments have the same surface i.e. 650 square feet,
brand new and strong furniture and brand new and massive equipment selected
to last long.
Four units on the ground level at the corners of the building, however, do
not have a balcony and therefore are rented for USD 1,100 per month. The
reminder of the 1-bedroom apartments all include a very nice balcony and
therefore are for rent for USD 1,200 per month.
Looking for a two-bedroom apartment? Experience a luxury penthouse with
two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms with an incredible view from the top
terrace on the lagoon, the Mullet Bay beach and golf course and even the
French side. The penthouses have been built with a surface equal to three
times a one bedroom apartment for a rate equal to twice the monthly rate of
a one bedroom apartment (i.e. USD 2,400 per month). These units are also
fully and newly equipped and furnished.
The building is also running Cable TV and DSL Internet connections.
Therefore, it only takes a couple of days to get it set up from your unit.
To move in and feel comfortable right away in your apartment, we have
placed the following:
-Kitchen: Wooden cabinets, electrical stove and oven, microwave, 17 cubic
refrigerator, lamp, and some additional silverware, plates and glasses...
-Living room: mini bar with stools, two armchairs, a sofa, two living room
-Bedroom: Queen-size bed, and closet, bedside table, sheets, pillows, lamp.
All windows and sliding doors are equipped with blinds and all units
include an individual washer and dryer.
