“INCREDIBLE place...right on the ocean!”
Reviewed 22 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Just returned from a six-night stay at Carisma on the Beach and can't say enough about it. It truly made our family vacation unforgettable. As noted in other reviews, Paul is an incredible host. He answered several island-related questions in advance of our arrival, then had snacks and drinks ready when we did get there. He also checked on us throughout the week to ensure we had everything we needed. The location was perfect. Easy access to Simpson Bay restaurants, yet with an absolutely stunning view of the ocean. We would venture out during the day, then couldn't wait to return and enjoy the view from the back deck. This place has all of the conveniences of home, including modern kitchen appliances, pots, pans, utensils, washer/dryer, etc., but with beachfront access that can't be beaten. Teen and pre-teen kids also appreciated the access to wifi and Neflix. Highly recommended by everyone in our family!

“Perfect Home with welcoming hosts!”
Reviewed 8 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

The Carisma was a perfect choice! The view was spectacular, it is at a central location and the layout of the house was perfect! Carmen and Paul were so welcoming and friendly hosts. Staying at this house is like being at a home with many of the amenities of our home, but with an amazing view. We will definitely stay at the Carisma on our next visit to St. Maarten!

Me and my wife recently spent our honeymoon at Carisma and loved every minute of it! This place has everything you need. The owners are wonderful people and live very close by. Paul and his wife went above and beyond to ensure that we had a great time. It was wonderful to have snacks on arrival and even a bottle of champagne since it was our honeymoon. Paul was very helpful with Beach and restaurant recommendations and even provided us a cell phone to get in touch with him while we were out and about. Wonderful property! Wonderful hosts! I would definitely love to make a return trip and stay here again.

“It’s just paradise!”

We had two glorious weeks at Carisma and it just gets better and better. The condo is so comfortable, the kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly think of but our favorite is relaxing on the patio, soaking in the jacuzzi, watching the cruise ships sail by on the beautiful Caribbean waters and taking in the sunsets. Although Irma has not been kind to parts of the island, where Carisma is located the beaches are picture perfect, there are plenty of wonderful restaurants and night life. You have everything just a short walk/drive away. Thanks Paul and Carmen you’ve thought of everything and we can’t thank you enough, see you next year.
