Property description

White Sands Retreat (aka “Bowie Place”) is a private 2 bedroom 1 bath cottage just 50 yards from Simpson Bay Beach on Dutch Sint Maarten. Located in a neighborhood of other private homes where your privacy is assured. You are renting the exclusive and private use of the entire property.

The spacious cottage has been updated and is equipped with modern appliances. High Season stays now INCLUDE free on-site WiFi and internet access. The property features a one minute walk to the beautiful two mile plus long pristine Simpson Bay beach, secure parking and an onsite caretaker. This spectacular beach has no ocean undertow, gentle waves for swimming and soft pearl white sand. You can walk the entire length of our beach and visit the small beach cafes and restaurants.

You can stay in or go out and enjoy all the island activities that are very nearby like world class restaurants, night clubs, beach bars and casinos.

You are booking directly with the owner, so our rates are extremely low for beach side accommodations.

Accommodation details:

Two private bedrooms with queen size beds and choice of firm or plush mattress. Each bright and airy bedroom has individual controlled air conditioning, dresser with mirror, closet, personal room safe and share a full bath with large walk-in shower. Both are supplied with fresh towels and all linens.

There is an air conditioned full size living room with cable TV, DVD player and stereo. The dinning room seats six at a casual round table with tropical inspired designer place settings.

The kitchen has a full size gas range & oven, microwave, dishwasher and full size refrigerator with automatic ice maker. There is a full supply of gourmet pots & pans, designer plates, glasses, tableware, cooking utensils, as well as toaster, blender and drip coffee maker.

The back deck is partially covered and has an additional table and chairs. For the outdoor chief there is a stainless steel four burner gas BBQ grill. The front porch is a great place to sip your morning coffee or enjoy your end of day cocktail.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Taxes Not included

Notes:

Rates are based upon time of year and number of guests/bedrooms occupied. One bedroom rate is for 1 to 2 persons. Two bedrooms rate is for 2 to 4 persons. PLEASE NOTE: The additional "per person" rate is added to the weekly rate to get the TOTAL RATE FOR SECOND BEDROOM. It is not a "per person" add-on but an add-on for renting the second bedroom. Example: Winter 2 bedroom (4 person) rate is $1350.

A $295 non-refundable deposit for up to a 2 week booking and $600 for longer bookings is due within 2 days of booking and your reservation is only confirmed upon receipt of this deposit. The balance is due at least 45 days prior to arrival date (60 days on long term bookings). If booking is made less than 45 days prior to arrival then the total fees are due to confirm your reservation.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Have lived in Florida for 40 years now and traveled to St. Maarten over the last 25 years.

Why the Owner Chose Beacon Hill:
After traveling throughout the Caribbean since the early '80s I found St. Maarten to be the best location. I have owed multiple timeshares but sold them all off and bought this home. So much better to truly own a vacation home. Will retire here someday.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Besides all the island has to offer, and all the beach has to offer and all the friendly locals. It can just be the best thing to sit on the front porch with a glass of wine in the evening and listen to the distant soft sound of the waves on the beach. Priceless.
