About Linda Tucker & Jamie Lear

We've been vacationing in St. Maarten (always on Simpson Bay) for 30+ years. Now that we're retired, it's great to be able to spend more time there.

When the La Siesta Residence complex was built in 2006, we purchased Sea Place (2nd floor/2 BR which is unit B2). We loved it so much that when the A Building was completed in 2007, we purchased Sea Belle (ground floor/1 BR which is unit A3).

Jamie likes the A3 unit for the convenience of walking directly out to the pool. My favorite is the B2 unit because I like the view from the 2nd floor balcony and I like that the master bedroom also has a great oceanfront view.

Using the Internet made it very easy for us to share our vacation homes with other beach lovers. We now have many repeat guests, who like ourselves, have gotten hooked after one visit and keep coming back. Vacationing in St. Maarten is a pleasurable addiction that you just can't kick.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Linda,



We just returned home from two weeks in St. Maarten and wanted to drop you a note regarding the terrific time during our stay at your Sea Belle Villa. The unit was wonderful and very tastefully decorated for the island. It was very clean thanks to Hermaine and had all the amenities anyone could want. The location, views, sunsets and weather made for a memorable stay. Thank you for renting to us and we will surely contact you next time we plan a holiday to St. Maarten.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The villa is exactly as described. Beautifully decorated with all the amenities you'd ever need on vacation. The owners have thought of everything! The information about the island they provide is so detailed it made planning our trip so easy and relaxing. The dining in Simpson Bay was excellent and no matter where on the island we were, we always ended up back there to eat and have drinks. Beirut, Toppers and Skip Jacks were some favorites. We went on an ATV excursion with Splash in the Sun for 5.5 hours that was fantastic as well. A+ and would highly recommend this villa.

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 12 night stay at Sea Belle. Close to airport, but didn't hear many flights. Very open floor plan with a wonderful view. The sliding doors open almost the entire wall to the pool and the sea. VERY well equipped...floats, chairs, umbrellas, floats, TV, CDs, bug spray, suntan lotion, coffee pot, coffee filters, foil, plastic wrap, spices, good variety of pots, pans, dishes, paper towels, shampoo, body soap, a safe, W&D, almost daily housekeeping, etc. The bath is new and contemporary. The king bed is very comfortable. Their are two chest of drawers and the closet has hangers. There's even an almost daily gardener that keeps the grounds perfect, washes down the deck and pool chairs. Then dries the chairs off. He even rakes the beach. You are walking distance via the beach to Karakter Beach Bar and Mary's Boon Guest House. Both have good food. The neighborhood is a little run down, but the neighbors are very friendly. We did have a problem with someone parking in our spot. A quick call to the manager soon had that resolved. Not having to have keys was great, every door, gate, etc is coded...couldn't lose key😊򒨊𘀠. If you want to stay on the Dutch side, we would strongly recommend Sea Belle.

Once again a fabulous, relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Sea Belle Villa and it was just as fabulous the second time around. This is a large, very well-equipped, luxurious condo. We love being able to just walk out onto the covered terrace and directly from there onto the pool deck and Simpson Bay beach. You have all the amenities needed to make a snack or a full-course meal, including a BBQ grill on the terrace.

Linda is a terrific owner and is always looking for ways to improve and update Sea Belle and make it easier for her guests. We noticed many small improvements from our last visit in March 2014 (see my previous review below). There were also some bigger improvements such as a remodeled bathroom, new bed and the addition of a small kitchen table for eating or working at indoors. All the bathroom and beach towels had also been replaced (and there are lots of each!!).

The addition of a new wi-fi system shows Linda's attention-to-detail. The old system was often slow and intermittent. Most of the other units at La Siesta are still on the old system. We were the envy of the other guests when they realized we had fast, reliable internet service, which is often a problem on the island. Well done, Linda!

We spent two-and-a-half weeks at Sea Belle this time. It was totally relaxing and reconfirmed the reasons why we chose to return. It is also in a great location for easy walks to amenities or to drive anywhere on this beautiful, interesting island. And Simpson Bay Beach is one of the nicest on the island, IMO.

This is now our go-to place when visiting St.Martin/Sint Maarten. Highly recommended.

Perfect place for our Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were married at the Sonesta Ocean Point in Maho, we had 34 guests there. We wanted to find a quiet place on the island to honeymoon after the wedding. I came across this villa on VRBO and thought it looked lovely in the pictures and was in a prime location for what we were looking for. The pictures and reviews did not disappoint. Everything is exactly how it looks in the pictures, great condition, great location. You do need to walk down the beach a short distance to swim without rock but it was no longer of a walk then I would of done at the resort. They supply you with everything you could need, towels, bedding, beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, floats etc. Having the pool a few steps from our door was fantastic. And if you are a fan of seeing boats and yachts you will be in heaven! They also supply binoculars to view some of the boats! I would highly recommend this villa and we would definitely love to come back :)

Just superb

  • 5 of 5

This condo is very spacious and superbly equipped. I have never seen such a great hairdryer and the makeup mirror was astounding! The linens are all top quality, including the beach towels. The kitchen is stocked with every manner of utensil, appliance, Crockery, etc, all top of the range.

The swimming pool is lovely and warm and close to the terrace in front of the condo. The only drawback is that when you open your curtains in the morning, there is likely to be someone sitting right in front of the unit. There are limited sun loungers around the pool and this made for a certain amount of 'towel draping.' Also, if you are not inclined towards conversation with your morning coffee, it can be hard to avoid. All in all, though, a very nice place.

Beautiful & Well Appointed. As Advertised!

  • 4 of 5

La Siesta looks exactly like the pictures in the ad. The view does not disappoint. In the way of amenities, the condo has everything you could ever want or need. The bed is extremely comfortable, the sheets and towels were very nice. Snorkel gear, pool and ocean floats, and games were all provided. We enjoyed our stay very much. The only downside to the entire place is the airport traffic. Almost every plane that takes off from the airport flies directly over this condo all day long. If not for the plane traffic, I would have rated five stars.
