Everybody can access the sales and rentals and wanted sections without registering. However, if you wish to post a week or find out more about the Resorts or the Island, we ask that you register.

Registration autmatically sets you up for a subscription to our general newsletter which is published half a dozen times a year or more. If you would like to have access to certain sections such as the Newsletter archives, detailed news stories or the Owners section with details on resort management including finances, you need to become a Premium subscriber at a cost of $10 per year or less if you subscribe for a longer term.

Most of the listings on this site are for fixed weeks. As Sunterra no longer sells fixed weeks and does not guarantee a particular unit when renting, buying or renting through this site is your best option for obtaining a particular unit during a particular week of the year. Sunterra continues to sell time through a trust in its Sunoptions system.

The St. Maarten section is under development. Come back later to see what information we have added based upon the experience and advice of hundreds of people who regularly call St. Maarten home!
