Activities/Attractions: The Friendly Island of Sint Maarten/Saint Martin is the smallest piece of land shared by two countries - Holland and France. "It's a little European with a lot Caribbean." St. Maarten/St. Martin offers a delightful array of entertainment for families to honeymooners. In the 36 square mile area, you will find yourself swept away by:
"Showers in and outside! Lots of privacy - only 8 units. Great palm trees in front of your unit. Wonderful, uncrowded beach steps away, Casual wear-bathing suits, shorts, no shoes, Cookout facility - fun, saves money on food. Maid service - the ladies were so nice to talk with. Covered patio for those of us who shouldn't get too much sun. Magnificent view at all times, rain or shine. All the boats, the drawbridge activity, etc. Intimacy - you serve as our friend in a foreign land as opposed larger hotels which are very nice but sterile and impersonal. The neatness and cleanliness - beach is raked, property cleaned up each day. Restaurants - good, inexpensive ones within walking distance. Transportation - don't need a car. Beautiful water, great swimming. Plenty of chaises and chairs. Laundry service available."
General Information: The Horny Toad is a deliberately small and distinctive guesthouse in St. Maarten, Netherlands Antilles known for its congenial and unpretentious atmosphere. The original building is a former governor's house tastefully renovated into spacious, fully-equipped apartments.
Each of the eight apartments is delightfully different, displaying a personality of its own. All of our units are in the former governor's house on Simpson Bay with the exception of one which is set back off the beach.
The ground floor units have direct access to the beach and a view of the beach through floor to ceiling windows bringing the beauty of tropical flora to your room. The second story units have balconies overlooking the beach. Units are cooled by soft breezes and fans. Some units are air-conditioned.
Payment Accepted: Personal checks, travelers checks, cash, and MasterCard or Visa.
Rates: (Prices quoted in US Dollars).
"We wanted to write you and say thanks so much for the wonderful few days we spent at the Horny Toad guest house! Having the kitchen and private balcony helped us feel almost like we had our own place right on the beach. It was just perfect for us, especially after just returning from St. Kitts, where we'd had to eat out for every meal, which gets exhausting and expensive. Thank you, and the rest of your staff, for making us feel right at home! The individual attention, and spacious, spotless accommodations, make your guest house much more of a "luxury" vacation spot than any upscale large resort. We'll recommend you to anyone we encounter who's heading to St. Maarten."
