This trip was filled with “Kodiak” moments. But seriously, this bear loved every moment spent in this beautiful condo nestled on the semi-private Simpson Bay Beach!
When we arrived at the Las Arenas complex (which was just a 5 minute drive from the airport), we were greeted by the on-site security guard as we pulled into our designated parking space for the week. When we rounded the corner, we had a truly picturesque view – an infinity pool with lounge chairs overlooking the beach and cerulean waters of the Caribbean Sea. I could “bear-ly” believe my eyes! The beach was semi-private and is arguably the quietest (but one of the most beautiful) beaches on the island. Waking up to go running along the beach, which was just a few steps away from our condo, was a nice treat…better than a pot of honey!
The island of St. Maarten is a bustle of activity, with so many fun activities available including horseback riding, ziplining, and parasailing. I had to “paws” and look around at the beautiful scenery with every stop! The owner provided all the materials needed to settle in, including a cell phone to make local calls (supported by a phone card)! We also had a list of recommended restaurants and activities from the owner, which we took full advantage of. It was a very fun adventure and my thanks goes to the owner for “pre-bearing” us for our vacation. It was “paws-ibly” the best trip this bear has ever taken!

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: I've been traveling to the beautiful island of St. Maarten since 1982. I owned and handled vacation rentals for two beachfront villas during the 1990's.
Why the Owner Chose Simpson Bay: I've been visiting the beautiful island of Sint Maarten/St. Martin since 1981 and it remains my favorite of all the Caribbean Islands. I've seen A LOT of changes during those 30 years!
I owned 2 villas just down the beach from Las Arenas during the 1990's and slowly developed a year round vacation rental business which I sold in 2000. Now that my kids are almost grown I decided it was time to spend some more time on this wonderful island and found this special gem 'Paradise Found'.
I visited 'Paradise Found' last January while on vacation and fell in love with the stunning property of Las Arenas, the magnificent beachfront location and stunning residence. It is tucked away on picturesque Simpson Bay Beach, a two mile, white sand swimmable beach which most people have no access to unless they are staying there.
