We just had the pleasure of staying at this apt for a week. The location was great because I had a conference at the westin which was walking distance. The unit was clean and well maintained. The staff were very helpful and nice. Our 3 year old loved the pool, where were we spent a lot of days cooling off. The location was nice cause it was within a 15 - 20 minute drive to Phillipsburg, Simpson Bay, Orient Beach, and Grand Case. Good restaurants like Canoa were within walking distance. Roy was very helpful and responded immediately in booking the unit. Would definitely recommend to others. FYI no elevator, which we were fine with and there is not a washer or dryer in the unit, but the building has one washer and dryer for renters to use free of charge.

Superb Condo Experience!
Superb Condo Experience!
Feelings of total relaxation swept through us within an hour of entering this beautiful condo. The owners have pulled out all the stops to ensure each guest has everything they need to enjoy a wonderful trip. The condo itself was spotless and beautifully decorated. And I must mention the bed. It was so comfortable and has such a gorgeous view of the sea I have to confess it was difficult some mornings to drag myself away for another relaxing day at the pristine white sands of Dawn Beach. There were so many wonderful places to dine and most within a five minute drive from the condo and it some within walking distance too. Amongst my many favorites was Canoa.....delicious. There is also a great bbq area within the complex and it is very close to this particular condo and it was great fun to dine on the huge lanai and look out at all the twinkling lights surrounding the cove and enjoy the stars too! For anyone who has not ventured to St.Maarten and also those who wish to return I would not hesitate to recommend this great condo. I for one will be back! P.S. The owners photos of the property are very true but the physical property is even better.

Dealing with the owner was excellent. Timely E-mails and reponses. Great directions to unit. It was spotless and well represented in the pictures. The onsite staff was efficient and freindly. The pool was clean and warm. Parking was safe and plentiful. Very minor details: There is a two flight climb to the unit. We could not keep the doors to the very large deck open because of mosquitos. Dawn beach was too rough to snorkel though I tried. ( not the owners fault) Mr. Busbys was a great find! The unit is close to Captain Alan's snorkeling tours was great. ( check the weather before booking!!!!) If going to Phillipsburg, go on the weekend and park by the main road and walk the short distance to front street. Big parking lot.

Before arriving, the property owner was fast with responses and provided very helpful and useful resources. He provided an excellent contact for a rental car. Description is accurate and unit was spotless! Well appointed including a couple nice TV's and an iPhone docking speaker (We loved to stream internet radio). Fridge had a few beers and sodas when we arrived and everything was clean including sheets, towels, bathrooms, etc. There was a nice pool we used once after a day at the beach. Plenty of parking, gorgeous views and was right near Big Fish and a few other very nice restaurants. We stayed a week with our 2-year old and would stay again. Would highly recommend this unit and location!

What a Treat
What a Treat
We enjoyed our seven night stay on the island. Our self-proclaimed "relaxation retreat" was an absolute delight from the start. Directions to the Princess Heights, in our rental car, were easy to follow and allowed us to get a good feel of the island. The condo exceeded our expectations, the marble floors…palace-like. The condo at the Princess Heights was spacious and accommodating. It was great to relax on the balcony watching the sunrise, then head to the beach and visit the Westin's pool-bar during the day, then head over to the Sunset Bar & Grill just in time for sunset. The "Fly Zone" zip line excursion was one of our favorites. We enjoyed dining over on the French side in Orient Village. There was quite a variety of restaurants to choose from, and we loved the patio dining atmosphere. Would recommend this place for all, it has something for everyone. We consider ourselves fortunate to have found this jewel at Princess Heights, and plan to return for another go at it!

Great CondoGuest comment entered by owner
503 is a great condo,a great balcony; blackout drapes were a huge plus. Mr. Busbys by day and Daniels By The Sea after 6pm are excellent places to eat and/or happy hour at Dawn Beach The Los Los food at The Sky's The Limit in Grand Case is delicious and the price is very reasonable.

A Memorable Place

My husband and I have stayed at several VRBO properties, but this apartment in Princess Heights was by far one of the best experiences. Roy was prompt in answering emails, and once we decided on the property, provided clear, specific details on all aspects of the booking, And, his driving directions from the airport were spot-on--no small feat on this island where there are few street names. When we arrived at the reception office, all paperwork was in order and we were escorted to the suite. The apartment is spacious, comfortable, and homey. We enjoyed several home-cooked meals reflective of the many cultures represented on the island: French, Indian, and Dutch. Enjoyed those meals on the spacious balcony looking out onto the ocean. When we weren't cooking, we enjoyed $1 beers at the Phillipsburg boardwalk, local grilled ribs at La Taverne (also on the boardwalk), and a local Indian restaurant called Jonhan. Excellent food at both places, plus great prices. For us, Princess Heights was the perfect location. Far enough away from the traffic and congestion, but close to Phillipsburg. My husband liked having a casino just down the road at the Westin. If you are considering this property, you won't be disappointed. It was exactly as described, offered at an excellent price, and straightforward in every way. No unpleasant surprises or disappointments. Our 5-day stay in this beautiful apartment will remain one of our cherished vacation memories.

This is our fourth visit to the island and our accommodations this time were the best of any of the previous ones. The photos do not do justice to the quality of this property. The interior was stunning, spacious, beautifully appointed and meticulously clean. From both the kitchen/living room and the bedroom we had unbroken views of the ocean. We loved the comfort of the bed and the bathrooms included the extra amenities such as shampoo, etc. There were plenty of towels and large beach towels. The kitchen included any item that you needed for meal preparation. We spent probably too much time on the balcony but it was hard to get motivated when we had such comfort and, did I mention the view? Other than the cars on the road, it was very quiet. The owner could not have been more helpful as were the girls in the office. The Dawn Beach is lovely; the Westin has two excellent restaurants - we ate at Aura - and a smoke free casino. Within a quarter of a mile are three more restaurants; we ate at Daniel's/Mr. Busby's, and Canoa twice - both were very good. We also ate in Marigot at Torpicana - this is our second time within five years and the quality was as superb this year. In Grand Cas we had an incredible lunch at Le Tastevin. Do not forget to watch the show and the sunset at Sunset Bar next to the airport. Overall, we could not have been more pleased with the entire experience. We will absolutely return to this condo.

Relaxing stay in Sint Maarten
Relaxing stay in Sint Maarten
My husband and I enjoyed our first trip to Sint Maarten, Roy the owner was very helpful .The condo at Princess Heights was just what we wanted. Beautiful view from the large deck, large, clean comfortable living space and a nice swimming pool. We had to climb a couple sets of stairs to the condo but we did not mind the exercise. Every morning we would take a walk to Oyster Pond and every evening before dinner we would enjoy the view from the deck. There are many restaurants on the Island, the ones we went to were Mama's Pizza, Daniels By the Sea, Il Nettuno in Grand Case, Lol in Grand Case and Pineapple Pete's. Everyday there was a different beach, Orient Bay, Frar's Bay, Le Gallion, Dawn Beach and a day trip by ferry to Anguilla. renting a car was a good way to see the isand and get a feel for the local people who were very friendly. Harmony Nights in Grand Case should not be missed. Great trip, great condo and location. Would visit again!

I stayed in the condo for a week this summer and had a wonderful time! The condo itself was great. Very spacious (even with four adults staying) and with all the amenities I am used to at my own home: internet, phone, TV, and Blue Ray DVD player. I thoroughly enjoyed the large deck outside. Sitting on the lounge chairs and staring out at the waves and palm trees below was one of my favorite views. (Yes, the Westin Hotel is below the condo, however I did not find it to be a disturbance to my view.) The condo was also very quiet, and the staff was helpful. One thing I liked at the condo that I have not experienced elsewhere is the outdoor barbeque on the first floor. I barbeque often in my home in the states, and so being able to pick up food at the grocery store and grill some of the nights while on holiday was great. The island itself was relaxing. Dawn Beach is the closest to the condo, only a short walk downhill and across the road. The beach is gorgeous and the Westin Hotel is very accessible for use of restrooms, or for an AC blast! Orient Bay was my next favorite beach, a 10 minute drive from the condo. There were lots of water activities available at Orient Bay, including a banana boat ride, a water trampoline, and wind surfing. The famous Maho Beach, next to the airport, is fun to eat lunch at to watch the planes arrive and depart, however it is not my first choice for a relaxing beach to lay on. Overall, Dawn Beach and Orient Bay were my ideal beaches to visit. Beyond the beaches, I liked going into Philipsburg, the shopping hot spot. Word of warning: travel to Philipsburg on days when cruise ships are not docked. When the cruise ships are in, vendors will not lower their prices as easily as when cruise ships are not in. The butterfly farm was also a nice place to visit. I never knew so many beautiful butterflies exist! A nice local bar to visit near the condo is "Mr. Busby's" or "Daniels by the Sea." All in all, I had a great stay in the condo and enjoyed a relaxing time on the island. I would definitely stay in the condo again; the owners were great and have obviously taken time to appreciate their property!

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We bought our condo in 2010 after we enjoyed a totally stress free vacation there. We both work, live the vida loca and travel frequently on business. Having the comfort of a full kitchen, living area and bedroom not to mention a covered balcony with great views offered us the indulgence of choice and complete relaxation. We love to go out to the great restaurants - we also enjoy the odd evening of staying home, opening some French wine and enjoying a relaxing barbeque.
Why the Owner Chose Dawn Beach:
We chose St Martin for a number of reasons. The weather is warm all year around. It is served by the most modern airport in the Caribbean. Direct flights come in from the United States, France and Holland on a regular basis. It’s very easy to get around the Island The people are friendly and helpful. The flavour of the island is a unique combination of Caribbean charm and European delight. Half the island is Dutch and the other half French. Everyone speaks English. US dollars are accepted everywhere or you can use Euros or NAF. There are numerous restaurants – some just a few minutes away from our Condo. Grand Case is certainly well worth the trip.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
All the beaches have a different and unique charm. Dawn Beach is our favourite. It is quiet, relaxing and all the amenities of the Westin right there for your convenience. You can snorkel, or pull your sun lounger under a palm tree and relax. Other guests have enjoyed Orient beach. Five minutes away by car it offers jet skis, para-sailing and many other water sports. Also, Baie Rouge is great fun if you enjoy body surfing to mention a few.
