On St. Maarten in the district Sucker Garden in the village The Keys lies a little property called 'Vicky's Keys'. Currently the ONLY Eco focused Hostel on St. Maarten! Not only at Vicky's Keys you can experience real island living. It's also an affordable way to experience the easy way of life while staying among the local Caribbean. You should not be surprised if you are awakened by the roosters in the morning, or you suddenly see a herd of goats passing by, hear the cows lowing or even a donkey paying our yard a visit. This is all part of the daily and rural life in "The Keys".

Public Transportation / Gypsy

Public Transportation from the Airport/Harbor stops in Philipsburg and unfortunately does not continue to our little village - The Keys in Sucker Garden.

From Princes Juliana International Airport - right accros the airport you can catch the public mini busses that are going to Philipsburg. The bus fare would be about US$ 2. 00. Arriving in Philipsburg get out at the end of Cannegieter street infront of AFOO supermarket. Here you will be able to get a Gypsy (illegal taxi @ US$ 1. 00) which can drop you at Sucker Garden main road at the Kings of The Sea road entrance. From there you can walk into the Keys village by following our Vicky's Keys signs.

Some Gypsy's would know our location and would offer to drop you at our front door in The Keys @ US$ 2. 00. Unfortunately not every Gypsy know us cause they are mostly newly arrived 'illegal' foreigners from Haiti or Santo Domingo who are trying to make a living by transporting. : )

Nearest airport: Princess Juliana International Airport (12,6km)
