    Maho: Studio, a single and double apartments ($950,1300, 1600)

    There are more large studio apartments coming open at the end of the year and can be reserved for January ($950 per month). They are fully furnished with storage areas, kitchen with gas cooking, washing machine, air conditioning and wired for internet and TV.

    One single apartment, easily big enough for a couple with lots of extra room ($1300) . Possibly a small single will be available at $1250. Fully furnished and with washing machine, gas cooking, air conditioning and wired for internet and TV.

    The larger single apartment is mine and if you need to move in early January I can move to a studio for a month since I will leave the island at the end of January and the family will be gone by the end of the year. Otherwise, if you are in no rush, it is available from the end of January.

    The double is 2 bedrooms and spacious. A less spacious double one may become available at 1500.

    For these apartments, there is a shared dryer in each stairwell. You pay extra for utilities, internet and TV (if wanted). Deposits are typical, rent, utilities and keys and you need a 1 year lease though if you move and replace with someone else, that is OK.

    The building is pretty new and very solid. It is not beach front and is up a hill so would not be likely to have hurricane damage caused by a water surge. It has hurricane shutters. There is off road parking on the premises. The apartments are on a secure road and are currently rented by a mix of families, students etc. The security probably explains why we have had not petty crime. Not really set up for violently loud music. The landlord lives on the premises so is available to deal with problems.

    Only a short distance from AUC but not bang next door. Nice walk or bike ride. The AUC secuirity service can drop you back at night when you do not have a car or ride but you will need a car eventually. These apartement are much more spacious than most you find at this sort of price range in Cupecoy around AUC. Compared to many rents the savings will let you have a car easily since 3rd party insurance and license charges are approx $600 per year and cars keep their value pretty well if you buy an older one and maintain it. The island experience is enriched substantially when you have your own transportation

    Photos are available that show typical apartments. Look up liverwort1 on Flickr


    Really, this is an excellent choice for St Maarten: not too far away and close to shops etc in Maho. We have lived here a year with no regrets. Of course, if I had wanted to pay another $1200 per month, there were some nicer choices, but most apartments in the price range were either not nearly so nice, or they were much further away beyond the Simpson Bay bridge, and we do have severe traffic problems associated with the bridge.

    If you are new to AUC, plan to arrive a few days before term and I can help with a tour of the island.

    Photos of typical units are on Flickr: Can't seem to edit to show them better
