This was one of the best condos we have ever rented.
The apartment had any and all amenities that you
could possibly need. The ground were beautiful and
the sunsets spectacular. I would definitely
recommend to family and friends.

My family stayed here in January of 2012. We had a
great time! Vicki's description of the condo was
very accurate and she went out of her way to insure
our vacation was perfect, down to the very smallest
detail. It was a pleasure renting from her. The
pools and ocean were great! I would also recommend
you visit the Sunset Beach Club where you get to see
the planes land right in front of you! Great for
people watching and the food was way better than you
would have expected, definitely a must see.

We just returned from a
12 day fun filled trip. We thoroughly enjoyed our
luxurious stay at this well maintained, well stocked
and very clean condo facing the Carribean Sea. We
certainly appreciated Vicky's helpful nature, quick
responses and fantastic suggestions that all helped
make our vacation in Sint Maarten a truly relaxing and
enjoyable experience. When we return to this island,
we hope to be able to stay at this condo again. We
will highly this condo to any family or friends that
will travel to this island paradise.
Condo, with great customer service to match !!

We had a great stay at
Rainbow Beach club, Vicky was very helpful with every
detail and eliminates all of the "unknown"
issues before you even arrive. The condo was
beautiful, clean and well supplied with the things you
need to enjoy your stay. We liked the Cupecoy area to
stay in - close enough to everything you need and far
away from everything you don't (like the cruise ship
crowds) Vicky's customer service however is what sets
this rental apart from any other condo on the island
or Resorts for that matter. If you have any issue what
so ever, she will do anything within her ability to
help you have a wonderful stay.

We stayed over the Easter
holidays and greatly enjoyed the island and the Rainbow
beach club. Comfortable unit with all the amenities you
need for a family with 2 children. Great pools with a
scenic view. Vicki was very helpful in suggesting
restaurants and activities for us to do as a family. Many
of the owners there are also quite friendly in giving tips
about the island. A week wasn't enough, next year 2 weeks!

We just recently came back
from staying at Rainbow- it was by far the BEST vacation
ever! The unit was more than we ever expected- beautiful!
The area was quieter and cleaner than the entire rest of
the island- was the perfect place to return to after a day
of site seeing. Vicki was the perfect host she gave us so
many wonderful tips and was always just an email away if
we had questions. We are looking forward to returning to
the Rainbow for our next vacation to Saint Maarten and
would HIGHLY suggest this rental- for all types of
vacationers, couples, families any group visiting the
island would be very comfortable and pleased with this
rental!!! Thanks again we had a wonderful time and can't
wait to come back.

Our family of 5 had a great
vacation! We have three young children and the condo met
all of our needs. We felt like we were at home. The
security was great. We felt very safe. The layout was
perfect and spacious and it was nice to be able to see the
ocean. The location was about a five minute drive from our
favorite beaches! The owner was so easy to work with. We
would definately return.

This is a lovely condo with
just about every amenity you could hope for. It is
beautifully furnished and has tons of little extras that
make vacationing here a breeze. The location is very good,
close to restaurants, shopping, etc. and the complex is
very secure. The gym facilities are the best I've seen in
more than 15 years of visiting St. Maarten. The owners
were a pleasure to work with and made sure that every
detail was taken care of.

We are a family with a
teenage son so this condo was spot on; two bedrooms with
own bathrooms and plenty of space for all. The apartment
was in good condition and with quality furnishings so we
enjoyed every bit of our stay. The pools (and a small
beach) are handy to have close by, altough we mostly went
to explore the island's many beaches. We had no issues and
can recommend this apartment, thank you for Vicki and all
the staff at Rainbow Beach Club.

We just returned from our
vacation in St. Maarten. This was our fourth time in St.
Maarten and our second time at the Rainbow Beach Club.
First of all, let me say that I have dealt with many
fantastic owners on VRBO, however, Vicki exceeds them all.
From the very beginning she was quick to respond to any
question I had. She has a wonderful booklet that she gives
you that has all of the tips you could possibly need
regarding the condo, the area, beaches, restaurants, etc.
I also became ill on our vacation and she responded to me
in minutes by email and directed me to the nearest clinic
and pharmacy. I truly just cannot say enough about Vicki.
I am a stickler for customer service and she far exceeded
my expectations. Now, to the condo. It is beautifully
furnished, great location in the complex, and very well
taken care of. It has everything you need. It has a great
balcony to sit and watch the sunsets. The beds are
comfortable and the condo and complex are very quiet.
Regarding the area, I have stayed in other parts of the
island, but Cupecoy and the Rainbow Beach Club has become
my absolute favorite. There is a casino and restaurants
within walking distance. The restaurants range from casual
to high end and they are all excellent! There are two
grocery stores that are very close and a beautiful beach
(Mullet Bay) within walking distance. I could go on and on
about the Island, the area, Vicki and the Rainbow Beach
Club. The Rainbow Beach Club has become my home away from
home and I will definitely be checking with Vicki and the
availability of her condo the next time we return to the

What an excellent time we had
at this property. Located near the American Univ of the
Caribbean Medical School it was home away from home during a
visit from our family to our daughter in the med school. Vicki
was fantastic to work with and was super fast responsive on
our questions/concerns. The condo is beautiful, well equipped
and lacks for nothing. The property is beautiful with 3 great
pools and beach access. The unit is clean, cool and has all
the comforts of home as well as beach gear. The price is
superb and compares with with local hotels but you get a whole
lot more. We could not have been happier and will use this
property again someday if the opportunity comes up. Have no
hesitation to rent this unit.

this place from Vicki was a fantastic experience from start to
finish! She was extremely quick and effective in getting the
rental agreement signed off. She went out of her way to let us
know what to expect with both the condo as well as things to
see and do on the island. When we arrived in St. Maarten, we
were very impressed with both the condo and the amenities at
the property. Our children loved the pools and the small
beach! The location of the condo was perfect, as it was not in
the middle of hustle and bustle. Our car gave us the
flexibility to see and do all we wanted. Speaking of a car,
Vicki even helped to arrange that for us! The property was
beautiful and Vicki made the whole experience smooth and easy.

property exceeded our expectations. From the moment we
initiated contact with the owners, we were treated extremely
well. The owners were informative, timely, friendly and
professional. The condo was clean and in great condition, and
the pictures most definitely do not do it justice. Even with a
slight hiccup with the water temperature being cool upon our
arrival, upon notification, the owners rectified the situation
immediately. The owner was even kind enough to call from the
U.S. to ensure we were enjoying our stay! They left us
brochures, and even a VIP card that gave us discounts on
restaurants, car rentals and entertainment on the island. The
views from the pools and the private beaches are simply
breathtaking. The modern kitchen enabled us to feel like we
were in our own homes. They were additional perks; such as a
stereo system, dvds, video games and movies in case we were
waiting out a storm. The location
also allows one to travel easily to both the French and Dutch side.
I do suggest renting a car so you can travel all over the island.
There are so many hidden treasures, such as one of our favorites,
Baie Rouge. It is relatively easy to navigate and the locals were
very helpful if we had any additional questions. I do recommend
taking a boat out to Prickly Pear, Anguilla. That was definitely a
high point of our trip. If you're wondering who would benefit from
this location, I'd recommend couples of any ages as well as small
groups of friends and families. I traveled with three other
professional women in their late twenties and they raved the entire
time about the trip and condo. I cannot thank the owners enough for
the amazing experience we had in St. Maarten. I hope that everyone
else that stays at the amazing Rainbow Beach Club creates the same
wonderful memories that I will always treasure.

First - the
pictures are not accurate...the condo is much more spacious and
impressive in reality! The furnishings are lovely, the kitchen has
everything you could possibly need, even my fourteen-year-old son
was impressed with the gaming options and the massive movie
selection available; between the DVD player and the PlayStation, I
knew he was set when he commented, “I could live here!” The view
is wonderful…we thoroughly enjoyed relaxing on the balcony in the
peace and quiet - watching the sailboats go by as the sun set and
believe it or not, one morning there was a rainbow outside over the
sea – which all sounds like an advertisement – but it’s true!
Most importantly to me, it was immaculately clean! The bathrooms
were spotless! Ms. Vicki was so helpful with providing detailed info
about where to get groceries ahead of time, where to eat, best
beaches, etc., and as first time visitors to the island, it was most
beneficial. We had read on the internet of the utility problems on
the entire island ahead of time, so we knew this was not limited to
any particular location. We NEVER lost power during our stay and
were only without water one morning, but Ms. Vicki has prepared for
that and we easily adapted and overcame that issue. Having already
made plans to spend the day around the island, we left - and with
perfect timing, the water came back on within a few minutes of our
return that evening, so it wasn’t a problem. The condo is also
well located – it is only a few minutes to Maho and the airport -
and anything you need is just up the road. Check-in with Ms. Myonie
was very easy, the security guards were very accommodating with our
comings and goings, and Ms. Elaine was a very hospitable neighbor!
Oh – and don’t let me forget the beach! It is like having your
own private beach. We were down there several times and always
alone! It was glorious! You really could not ask for anything more
here – there are pool toys, coolers, beach towels, games, etc.,
the only thing I regretted not having – was more time! Greg,
Zachary and I thank ya'll for sharing your splendid vacation home
with us and for making our first visit to St. Maarten so memorable!

Thank you very much for all
your help in making our stay a wonderful experience. Your condo is
breathtaking. I stopped by your friends unit, but they were
out and we never did see them. The little convenience store is real nice
and great sandwiches. We went to Paniel Island, very nice, if you have
not been to Pineapple Pete's the lobster therm is to die for. Did well
at the casino also. Thanks again for everything. Chuck

We were very
happy we selected Vicki's condo at Rainbow Beach Club. The condo was
clean and very nice and exactly as advertised. We enjoyed this
location as it was close to everything and had a almost private
beach. Facilities were great including the pools. Vicki was very
helpful and the staff at Rainbow Beach were friendly and helpful. We
will go back another time.

My husband and
I just returned from 13 days at Rainbow Beach Club. We rented from
Vicki and what a joy it was. From the on set she was wonderful to
work with and everything she told us came through. The unit was very
well furnished and very well taken care of. Every night we had plans
to g out for dinner but, ended up cooking in where we could enjoy
the sun set from the balocony or by one of the pools. The kitchen
has any utensils we needed to prepare dinner. We enjoyed that the
unit was not a smoking or pet unit. The security was very tight and
ever employee you came across was very kind. When it is time to pick
our dates for next year Vicki will be the first person I call.
