Simpson Bay condo description

One of the most luxurious and desirable beach-front residences in Dutch Sint Maarten, Paradise Found is located on lovely Simpson Bay Beach. Each of the two master bedrooms and large living area offers spectacular direct views of the cerulean Caribbean and Isle of Saba.

The relaxing, romantic atmosphere of Paradise Found fulfills all your dreams of the ultimate Caribbean vacation! Situated on undisputedly the least-crowded beach on the island, this exquisite two-bedroom villa is part of elegant Las Arenas, a new, attractively-appointed twelve-unit building with infinity swimming pool, gated premises, secure covered parking, rich landscaping, and unparalleled construction details.

Both individually air-conditioned master bedrooms offer a large walk-in closet, digital flat screen television, personal safe, marble-tiled bath, king-sized bed, and fine mahogany furniture. The gourmet kitchen features GE Monogram appliances, including an Advantium oven, cook top, wine cooler, and dishwasher; as well as Jenn-Air French door refrigerator/freezer with icemaker; Keurig Cofee Brewer (bring your favorite K-Cups), Cuisinart Coffee on Demand coffee maker, coffee grinder, and toaster; deluxe Gorham stainless flatware; George Foreman Grill, Dansk porcelain dinnerware; and a full array of kitchen utensils.
If dining out is preferred, near-by options run the gamut from formal candlelight to Caribbean casual. More than 300 fine restaurants island-wide make Sint Maarten the gourmet capital of the Caribbean.

Superior conveniences include the following: ' Large high definition flat screen television with surround sound and CD/DVD player. ' Disappearing sliding glass doors, providing an outdoor ambiance indoors and maximum enjoyment of the constant trade winds. ' Private washer and dryer. ' Designer paddle fans and air-conditioning throughout. ' High-speed wireless internet and cable television. ' Maid service. ' Elevator or outdoor stair access. ' Re-chargeable cell phone. Paradise Found is less than five minutes from Princess Juliana International Airport, French bakeries, banks, drug stores, grocery stores, gyms, hairdressing salons, ice-cream parlours, massage centers, theatres, video stores, casinos and water sports. Daily-or-longer car rentals are available within walking distance.

                          A picture perfect vacation! 06/24/2013

                          VRBO Bear stayed here:


                          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!

                          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.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          Location, Location, Location! Paradise Found at Las Arenas in Dutch St. Maarten is situated on a stunning stretch of uncrowded Simpson Bay Beach. Close to everything, yet tucked away from the masses, our fully equipped home away from home is, indeed, Paradise.
