This is not a NEW property. I have found reviews, going back more than 4 years, for this property. This property is also 1/2 of two properties that are owned by the same people and managed by the same property managers. They are listed as Mary's Beach Villa and also Mary's Beach Cottage. Mary's Beach Villa is a 4 bedroom & 4 bath unit and Mary's Beach Cottage is a 2 bedroom & 2 bath unit immediately next door to the Villa. Either unit can be rented independently or they can be combined together for a rental of a larger group.

These units have reviews going back just a couple of months and extending for years so they are currently being rented. Mr Lesley's comment might refer to the own'er desire to create a larger commercial enterprise on the location, but currently these homes are being rented out the same as many of the other homes in Beacon Hill.

These homes are listed on no less than 7 different listing sites which allows for some of the confusion and great disparities in rental rates. Some of the sites are AirBNB, VRBO, IsleBlue, St Maarten Villa, SXM Condo and quite a few others.

Aircraft noise should not be a major concern, but that is also an individual perspective. 30+ visits to the island all of it staying in the Maho / Simpson Bay(near Mary's Boon) and the noise from the airport has never been an issue for us.

If you like the location, then pit all the different listing groups against each other and fight for the best price. You need to put in a little sweat equity and possibly save a lot on the first price you have seen.

So, the listing is a lie, saying it's a new property?? Another reason to avoid the place.

Could mean it's a new property to that particular listing site.

It could be that the listing was posted a number of years ago and has never been updated.

I have been staying at the exact same place for the last nine years and the property description and listing have not changed in all that time. And I'm ok with that.

It is not uncommon for details and descriptions not to change on many of the websites, covering properties or businesses or even restaurants on the island.

** Your "Sainted" Beachside Villas has a video posted on their homepage that is 7 years old. Their location page also shows a map showing them next door to El Zafiro which no longer exists. Does that make them perpetrators of lies.

As I said earlier, there are more than 7 independent listings of the property on the internet. Each listing has a slightly different description of the property. It seems like it is most likely a failure to update the listing than anything. Also, if the property was constructed in the past few years than many might consider that newly built when many other properties in that area are much older.

I'm sure "14 at Mullet Bay" would consider their towers to be "newly built"

"newly" is an adverb with two of its more common meanings being "afresh" and "recently". Doesn't seem that description is far off base but some might want it updated.

bdeeley--as always, your only motive is to try to disprove anything I say.

This thread has run it's course.
