Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Simpson Bay - HEAVEN

Luxurious living space with unsurpassed ocean views

Simpson Bay is bordered by a beautiful 2-mile long, lightly-populated curved beach; Las Arenas is a very high-end 12-unit condominium complex right in the middle of Simpson Bay Beach (and one of the finest in St. Maarten); and this third-level unit, “Heaven”, is a premium unit within Las Arenas. It fronts on the beach and overlooks the entire bay and beach from the third floor, with floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides (and the ceilings are high) and a view of the Island of Saba off in the distance.

The aqua color of the sea, which is so sought after in the Caribbean, completely surrounds you. There are magnificent views from all rooms—living room, dining room, kitchen, and both master bedrooms. In the living room and dining areas there is more than a 200-degree panoramic view of the sea and the beach, and on the wrap-around deck—where you can just lounge and listen to the waves or have a meal any time of day—there is a 270-degree view. You feel one with the sea.

There are usually large yachts and sailboats tied up in the bay; and in the evening you may see huge cruise ship off in the distance. It’s an imposing sight. And after the sun sets, the many lights at the East end of the beach, from the “Village on the Hill”, provide a lovely and romantic evening view.

The weather is temperate year-round—even in the summer—and there is always a sea breeze to keep you cool. St. Maarten is truly a lovely place to visit in any season.

Heaven is a luxurious unit: marble floors throughout, marble baths, high ceilings, a modern high-end kitchen, beautiful furnishings, glass doors that can be slid out of sight, and electric shutters on the outside of all windows. The thick concrete walls, ceilings, and floors provide excellent sound proofing and security. The Las Arenas complex is gated, very secure, and impeccably maintained. The freshwater infinity pool right next to the beach provides a lovely and pleasant respite from a day in the sun. And the seawater is warm, clear, clean, devoid of seaweed, with moderate waves due to the protection of the bay. It’s an ideal place to swim, and the beach could not be any closer.

There are many amenities: large digital flat-screen TV in the living room with Bose sound system, flat-screen TVs in both master bedrooms, cable service, high-speed wireless internet, GE Monogram appliances in the gourmet kitchen including dishwasher and a wine cooler, a safe for valuables, secure covered parking, and daily maid service (except Sundays and holidays). Access is either by elevator or by spacious outdoor stairs.

Not far off are many restaurants offering wide-array of sea foods and various ethnic foods. It’s a short drive to a number of markets and supermarkets carrying the usual stateside choice of foods and beverages, but also offering wonderful French pastries, breads, cheeses, pates and wines. Bakeries, pharmacies, gas stations, car rental agencies, and the airport are all reasonably nearby.

There are many activities available including sailing, snorkeling, diving, deep-sea fishing, riding wave-runners, boat tours, touring the French side, visiting the butterfly farm, and traveling to neighboring islands to sightsee and shop.

Heaven is a no-pet and no-smoking unit.

It doesn’t get much better than this. Heaven really lives up to its name. Come and be one with the sea for a week or more—it is very renewing. If you do, there is a very good chance you will want to return!

Why Janet Johnston chose Simpson Bay

We have been traveling to St St Maartin for the past 4 years and we have always stayed at 'Heaven'; when the unit went on the market we were so afraid that we would not find another unit as perfect for us as this one is, we decided to make it ours. The contemporary design of the unit which is surrounded by the crystal clear turquoise water of the Caribbean sea made the unit quite irresistible.

What makes this condo unique

Beautifully architecturally designed and landscaped grounds!

3000 sq ft of living space (including balcony)

Panoramic views !

Gated property!

One of the Island best beaches; no crowds and great for long walks or jogging!

Six person elevator as well as outdoor stairs!

Back up generator and storm shutters!

Water sports, hairdressers, restaurants and bars, duty-free shopping, casinos, and night entertainment are within a few minutes drive!

We were hesitant on renting as this is a new owner and there were no reviews yet. Did see the one before we arrived and we had no issues with cold pool water, it was very refreshing. The infinity pool is by far the best on Simpson Bay! Condo was very sound proof, you could not hear anything outside or even in other rooms. It was clean, spacious and had a nice big wrap around balcony. We very much appreciated the welcome basket with cheese, crackers, OJ, wine and beer! There were beach towels and bag chairs to take to the beach. Yes directly in front there are big rocks in the water but a few yards down, the beach was rock free for swimming in the gorgeous water. Watching the planes take off and land never got old to us, we enjoyed it. Yes there are strip clubs at the end of the runway but you are in a more residential area not a resort. We felt very safe and usually walked down the beach to a couple restaurants and bars that were on the water. There is a grill we also used a few times. Cora the housekeeper was great also! Can't wait to go back again!

you will need a car here. the immediate area is a little seedy ie adult entertainment place on main corner beautiful well kept apartment. spacious clean & amazing
unobstructed views over ocean
airport is very close though & saturday it can get v busy with large planes taking off throughout the day.
the pool is freezing which may explain why it was empty most days. it is shallow so i had expected it to be like bathwater but even my husband who usually doesnt notice the cold was shivering!
it was a shock to get in (even at the zero entry point )
some good local eateries a few minutes drive away
beach is quiet. & really lovely. at least a mile long. beautiful sound of ocean waves from the apartment.
highly recommend this for families (our 4 yr old & 3 yr old twins loved it)

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Heaven and thanks for your separate email. You said that "The airport noise mostly didn't bother us; however Saturday is very busy... but really a small price to pay." The proximity of the airport has never bothered us, though we thought it might, because the unit is so soundproof. Re. the pool, apparently it seemed cold to you. We've never heard that complaint before. Usually the sun keeps it quite warm, so maybe there were a couple of cloudy days and/or the gardner was running fresh water into the pool at that time. Usually it is very pleasant.
