ST. MAARTEN TO BE FEATURED ON HGTV'S 'HOUSE HUNTERS ON VACATION'
Rescheduled For Friday, Oct. 5, 2012, 6 PM
PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten (Oct. 4, 2012) - HGTV's hit show House Hunters On Vacation was recently filmed at various properties and locations around St. Maarten for an episode that will air Friday, Oct. 5, 2012 at 6 PM on HGTV. The episode, which follows two couples who have been surprised with a vacation to the island, was rescheduled from its original air date of Sept. 16. The later air date will generate more interest in both the show and vacationing in St. Maarten during the impending winter months.
The host of the show, Taniya Nayak, will escort the four travelers to three villa rental properties around the island. The vacationers will ultimately choose their favorite property out of the three to enjoy for the duration of their trip.
Filming took place throughout both the Dutch and French sides of the island, including Maho Beach, Pic du Paradis, Mullet Bay, Front Street, Rue de Republique and the Grand Case area.
"We're thrilled that our beautiful island will be featured on HGTV," said Augusto Priest, acting director of tourism for the St. Maarten Tourist Bureau. "Viewers will see the many attractions St. Maarten possesses, along with the variety of properties the island offers to accommodate all tastes and budgets."
Viewers are encouraged to check local listings to confirm when the episode will be featured in their area.
