This meticulously maintained guesthouse close to the airport is warmly welcoming, a favorite of repeat visitors who appreciate the location, rooms with fully equipped kitchens, and good value. They also appreciate the "social" sunsets, when guests gather for drinks and bonhomie—Horny Toad is right on the beach, with the island of Saba on the horizon. Once the home of a former governor of St. Maarten, the guesthouse has no restaurant, but the eateries of Simpson Bay (plus grocery stores) are minutes away, and you can grill your own meals at the on-site outdoor barbecue pavilion. Note that children 7 and younger are not allowed, rooms have no televisions or phones (but do have free Wi-Fi access), and the property has no pool.
