The Horny Toad

2 Vlaun Dr., Simpson Bay, n/a St. Maarten, St. Maarten

Because of its stupendous view of Simpson Bay and the simple but comfortable rooms with creative decor, this lovely guesthouse is widely considered the best on this side of the island. Its virtues are many, but what really keeps guests coming back is the hospitality of owner Betty Vaughn (ask her how the inn got its name). She is so welcoming that you simply can't resist her charms. Ditto her high school beau (and husband), Phil, reunited after 52 years after both lost beloved spouses. You may feel like you are visiting the beach house of your favorite aunt. Book early, because the Toad fills up fast. Smoking is not allowed. The ground level is wheelchair-accessible.
