The IDEA

In 2015, my mom and I decided to renovate our apartments to serve similar to a hotel. Different to hotels though, we want the service to be personalized and our guests to feel like they are at home. Our idea is to personalize each room to meet the different requirements and the difference personalities that you will eventually have as your guests. Statia has some really cheap places to stay but the service is crap and there are some really basic but beautiful places but the price tags are crazy for a tourist on a budget.Our goal is to offer an on budget stay with a warm and homey feel for any type of budget.

What we DID

We have a building that was used for medical students that was run down. We started renovating the first two rooms to establish if our idea would be a good one in the long run. Our first room that was renovated was for the more luxurious type of persons that are used to and continue to look for the complete hotel experience but would like a touch of home. Our second room was a more rustic type of room, completely opposite of our first reno. For our guests that really just want to unwind and feel the peaceful environment, this is the perfect room.

What's our next GOAL

Our next goal is to renovate our 3rd room and a breakfast area for our guests. We have a nice rooftop space that we would like to change over to a breakfast area (for starters) that has an awesome view of Saba, St Maarten, St Barths and also our airport. Our 3rd room will be a simple room that will be available for the very low budget travelers that would like a piece of paradise but would like to stay on budget.

With the funding received from this project we will

- Renovate the breakfast area - we'd like to keep it an open eating area on the rooftop to be able to enjoy all the different views the property has to offer. We would need to lay down outdoor tiling, appliances, bathroom, etc to be able to make it a comfortable area.

- Renovate our 3rd guest room for the guests that prefer not to spend too much in accommodation but still want the peace and tranquility. We already provide bicycles for accessibility but would like some more bikes. - We are going to offer free walking tours. Any extra funds we raise will go towards this.

- Marketing – So far we’ve relied on word of mouth to promote our destination and our Inn. If we do really well with this campaign we’ll spend the money on some added marketing. We have several ideas we’d love to put in place if we had more funds.
