  RENTALS ARRANGED THROUGH THE OWNERS GROUP

We provide you with our simple rental agreement  which covers full details dates, unit # and costs involved and the policy on cancellation options 

Renters Cancellation Policy

RENTERS.   Please understand you are renting from another owner who will pay  the  annual maintenance fee and has committed to rent the unit to you.  Your reservation  IS SUBJECT TO CANCELLATION  under the one  specific condition defined below.

If the rental period cannot be used because  the Resort is closed as a result of a  Hurricanor  the Island of St Maarten or the Resort is closed to visitors  due to COVID  all payments made will be refunded less our administrative fee of $100 per week.   Transportation issues are not a  valid reason for a refund.

In the 2017/18 season when the Resort was suddenly closed due to Hurricane Irma damage and in 2019/20 due to COVID   we refunded prepaid rents  to over 155  renters in excess of $200.000

WARNINGS AND SCAMS IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR OWNERS WHO RENT OUT THEIR OWN UNITS AND HANDLE ALL ARRANGEMENTS THEMSELVES

Never accept any rental, or exchange offer from anyone who sends you a cashier’s check or money order or any other negotiable instrument for an amount in excess of what you’re charging, then demands you pay them the difference in a hurry. There are Internet scam artists who make a living by presenting stolen or counterfeit checks and getting real cash refunds from you for their “overpayments.” Don’t be a victim. The FBI’s cyber crimes unit investigates these incidents. If you receive such an offer, do not respond, do not delete the offer, and contact FBI’s office nearest you so you can give them the information they need to apprehend and punish these criminals. (Do not assume that “collected cash” in your account means a check is actually good. Often banks credit deposits and then go to collect from the banks, which may be overseas [recently both England & Spain]. When they find the check is stolen or counterfeit, they charge the entire amount of the check back to you plus fees. Never accept any payment in excess of your price.)
FYI Unscrupulous real estate agents are contacting our advertisers and offering to sell or rent their units. Our sense is that any real estate agent that has to pirate prospect names off the Internet probably has no clue how to market and we suggest you avoid them and their exorbitant fees, which are often several hundred dollars payable up front with no assurance or guarantee of success.
If you are approached by anyone by phone or email to buy outright weeks you are only renting — and the person claims hearing problems as a reason for dealing only by email — hang up and do not reply to the emails. This is a scam

IMPORTANT ADVICE TO RENTERS OF UNITS DIRECTLY FROM ANOTHER  OWNER

You should always get a rental agreement signed by both parties so you can be sure you understand the owners refund policy before you rent their unit. Ensure the agreement also covers full details dates, unit # and costs involved and the renters policy on cancellation options if any. The owners should give you a copy of a formal reservation acknowledgement from the Resorts Reservation department.

Please note we show many listings and we do try and be as accurate as possible but  keeping them up to date is a ‘herculean time challenge’ for a one man operation.   Our experience shows owners  have a habit of changing their minds and we are  not always advised of these changes. 

We always recheck with owners before making a firm rental commitment.
