|Minimum Stay||5 nights|
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 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 sight-see 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!
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.

We can't say enough about your fabulous place. Everything was just perfect, right down to the perfectly colored beach towels that match the color of the ocean right out of those beautiful windows. It feel as if you're on the most fabulous yacht looking over the railing right into the water! My favorite view is from the master shower - just so fabulous!
We so appreciate you allowing us to share this beautiful place of yours- we have places too and know it's hard to share. Cora was friendly and helpful and made us feel comfortable. Thank you Cora!
Our hope is that we can come back again! Thank you so very much.
What a fantastic condo! This unit exceeded all our expectations and more!
We couldn't have asked for a better vacation property.
Great location, beautiful and elegant interior.
Just minutes to a shops and restaurants.
This might be the most beautiful property I've ever stayed in. The photographs don't do it justice. it is a peaceful, tranquil with the most breathtaking views you will ever see-- still very conveniently located to the things we wanted to do, but it still feels "away from it all".
The owner is very responsive. The housekeeper is also great. She was kind enough to stock the unit with food for us so we did not need to rush to the supermarket.
Thank you for a memorable stay. We highly recommend this unit and will definitely will return.
We visited this unit on December 2nd overall It's a very nice unit and very close to the airport. We stayed at the unit for 3 nights and Cora the housekeeper didn't clean the unit the entire time. They do not clean on Sunday and I was aware of this, but I'm not sure why it wasn't cleaned on Monday. After 3 enjoyable days we leave St. Maarteen and return back home and receive a very upsetting email from Janet the owner stating we damaged her chairs. I emailed Janet immediately stating under no circumstances did we damage her chairs or anything else in the unit. Janet claims her housekeeper found the chairs scratched after we left the unit and that she recently purchased the chairs.We had insurance so if we damaged the chairs I would have no problem admitting this. I feel we are being falsely accused of this and Janet has filed a claim for the chairs for something we did not do. I would advise anyone who rents this unit again to please take pictures before and after you leave the unit.
It has been twenty seven years (27) years since I have had a vacation....and then I went to Heaven, and No, No, No, I did not die. I went to Heaven in St. Maarten, Las Arenas on Simpson Bay. The view from this condo welcomes you as soon as you make an entrance, and the peace and comfort is beyond anyone,s human expectation. This is where rekindling of friendship and memories reunited, and if you need to experience or taste what Heaven on earth is like then come and enjoy, yes I am talking to you, and you who are thinking about your next vacation.....You will never, I say never be the same, and if your are wondering if Heaven comes with an angel, yes it does and her name is Cora, who will attend to all your heavenly needs.
You cannot go wrong staying in Janet's Condo. The condo beautiful, is well equipped and exceeded our expectations. From the living area you get the feeling that you are on a ship. The location right on Simpson Beach was perfect. Close to a number of great restaurants. There is rock formation right in front of the condo that is great for snorkeling. We plan on booking with Janet the next time we go down.
I could not have asked for a better location to spend my vacay, Heaven at Las Arenas is just that HEAVEN! The day we arrived we were greeted by Ms.Cora, and she bought us back to the condo, as soon as we entered the condo our eyes lit up and our jaws dropped I mean this condo was beautiful beyond words and Ms.Cora was SO helpful and willing to help us with anything we needed, she told us all we needed to know about the resturants and activies around there. So the next morning we caught a taxi to Philisburg to take an 3 and an half hour ATV tour around the whole island stopping at beautiful attraction spots, then went home to relax and walked down to the beach, got in the clear blue water and laid in the warm soft sand. We got ready for dinner and walked down to Mary's where the food was excellent, after dinner me and my loved one walked on the beach under the beautiful night sky all the way back to the condo. The next morning, we caught a taxi (and Ms.Cora has a taxi guy she will introduce you to.) So he bought us up to Aqua Mania where we rented jet skis for half an hour, we rode past our condo and did alittle sight seeing, and then walked home and stopped at The Roasted Chicken King and went back and ate lunch before we had to catch our flight back home, the airport is exactly 5 minutes away from the condo! We had a little piece of heaven right here on earth and we will never forget!
The view was as if we were on a cruise ship . Great balcony. Perfectly clean and modern. Wonderfully nice housekeeper who actually picked us up at the airport. She could not have been any nicer. Would gladly stay here again.
