From MA. Early sixties. Fly Jet Blue with a stopover down and direct back. Late April to Early May. Been going to SXM since 93. Stay on French side. Rent villas as couple or with another couple. Stay in Orient Bay Park. Spend most of our time on French side except when we arrive and eat at Mark's Place and shop next door.

Southern MA on RI border 67 (me) and 62...I forgot exactly when we started coming to SXM but it has been just under 20 years. We started as exchangers into Pelican and then 8 yrs ago we inherited two January weeks on the 5th floor of SBR upper B bldg and absolutely love it.
Big tennis following of 15-20 players every year makes it even more enjoyable.

We're 68 & 69. First trip to SXM in 1984 then every year from 1990. Originally from the Boston area but couldn't take the winters anymore so we moved to SXM nine years ago and love it!
We're in Boston now and are having the same worries about the flight. We'll see you at Logan David!

We are 66 and 67. We started coming to St. Maarten from western Mass in 2001. We started with one week and are now up to four. Our family owns four weeks in the F building at SBR, we can't wait to see the renovations. Our adult children all want to vacation with Mom & Dad so we have more St. Maarten lovers.

RicknGrace_LI_NY are from LI-NY in case you couldn't guess. We are 64 and 63. Discovered SXM in 1993. Owned at Pelican but let it go a few years ago. We own a week in Cabo that we bought on E-Bay for $100. Never been there. Just use it for trading.

My wife and I are late forties. We are currently on our 4th visit to the island in 5 years. Every visit I get closer to convincing my wife we should retire here.

I've been a lurker of this forum for many years. First visited in 1986 and have returned many times since then. Often staying in the Orient Bay area.

We alternate beach/island stays with barefoot sailing - and sometimes being just plain beach bums.

Wife and I are in mid-60's

Wife and I are in our early 50's - from the prairies in Canada, so we deserve a winter vacation! Went to Orient in 2015 and heading back with 4 friends this winter - can't wait!

I'm in my (very) late 50's and hubby turns 60 this year. We're from Northern NJ and have been coming to SXM for over 15 years, always staying on Orient Beach area, except for our very first time at Guana Bay. If we're lucky, we get to SXM twice a year, but always come in early November. Started with a week, now up to 2 weeks. We just LOVE getting together with the people we've met over the years, many of whom have become great friends that we travel with and visit outside of SXM. It's become an opportunity to see other parts of the US too!

We are in our 50's and live in Iowa...we usually drive to Chicago and fly out from there but this year it looks like we will be taking a farther drive to Minneapolis as we can not find a decent rate on a nonstop flight...after flying nonstop for the first time last year we just can't go back to running through an airport to catch our second flight!

Younger than Carol and Eric Hill and from southwestern OH. First trip on a cruise in 1991 and over 40 trips to SXM so far. Being from OH we get all 4 seasons, multiple times a year and also have the pleasure of never having a non-stop flight and always high airfare.

"50 something", from the east end of Long Island, NY. First trip was in 2001 with a friend, and every year since then has been with girlfriend(s). This is my annual "girls' trip" and keep telling my husband it saves my life and our marriage <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/jester.gif" alt="" /> (he's a good man!)

Jon & Peaches from Detroit. Just booked Christmas flights on Delta for a fortune. We've been visiting SXM since 2004. We are late 30's and early 40's.

Interesting question David.

Yes, this post seems to have opened the floodgates ! Wife & I are 64 from Nawthern Virginia. Visited St. Martin first in 2005 and have been going back each year since. Stay at Club O, started with 1 week and now up to 2, usually Spring/early Summer but will be there December this year so we'll see what the Holiday season is like sans clothes.
