Simpson Bay condo description

Spacious penthouse one bedroom suite in the luxurious Aqualina Beach Club directly on beautiful Simpson Bay beach. Unit 401 is the ideal property for a romantic getaway. With over 1300 square feet of air conditioned space and two private terraces, you will enjoy the comforts of outdoor living in this spectacular unit. New to the rental market and recently furnished. The spacious master bedroom (16' x 22') opens up to a large wrap around terrace with stunning views over the beach and out over the blue Caribbean Sea. Relax in your king size temperpedic bed with luxurious Hotel Collection 600 thread count linens and gaze out over the ocean to the Dutch island of Saba on the horizon. Enjoy amazing sunsets from the large beachside terrace where you will find chaise lounge chairs and an outdoor dining table for eight. One step in the master bathroom and you will be amazed. Both the Jason Hydotherapy AirMasseur tub and the large walk in shower with Kohler Rainmaker system open up to a private garden area open to the elements. Here you will find two chaise lounge chairs making it the ideal place for sun tanning in total privacy. A separate water closet and dual Kohler lavatory sinks makes this a perfect couple's bathroom. After a relaxing bath, slip in to one of the Hotel Collection fine robes and enjoy the rest of your day in paradise. The unit is fully air conditioned (central air conditioning) yet has fans throughout and due to the corner location on the prevailing winds side of the building, allow for one to not use the air conditioning if this is preferred. Other amenities include in room hotel safe, gas BBQ grill, powder room for guests, seating for 18 throughout the unit for entertaining (beach side terrace: 8, dining room table: 4, lagoon side terrace: 4, bar counter: 2) The fully equipped kitchen is just large enough to prepare an elegant meal should you wish to dine at home. With all of the island's many fabulous restaurants, this area tends not to get used often. One will find a coffee maker, blender & glassware for entertaining. For just one couple, you will not find a better property for your island holiday.

Looking for more space? I am adding my second unit at Aqualina Beach Club to the vacation rental market. Unit 402 (directly adjacent to unit 401) is a two bedroom and will be available as of August 2013.

                          The key advantage of Simpson Bay beach is the spectacular beach with its breathtaking ocean views, however the location is a main plus as well. Simpson Bay is a quiet old fishing village and the beach is not well know and hence always quiet, yet drive out to the main road and you are close to everything. A few minutes drive West and you are in Maho, the entertainment center of the island where you will find casinos, restaurants, shops, spas, beach bars, golf, tennis, etc. Drive the other way and you will come to marinas with ferries to other islands, water sports and more restaurants and casinos as well as a movie theater. The capitals of Philipsburg and Marigot are not far and offer many activities including duty free shopping.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: I was lucky to be born and raised on the island of St. Maarten. My father comes from the small French town of Grand Case. He moved to the Dutch side at an early age and later in life met my mother who had moved down from the US to work at a hotel on the island. My grand parents had sold everything in Connecticut and moved the family to the island in the 60's to open Mary's Fancy Plantation hotel. Back in those days it was the place to stay. I attended American University in Washington DC and love the lifestyle St. Maarten allows.

                          Why the Owner Chose Simpson Bay:
                          Since graduating from university in 1992, I have worked for years handling vacation rentals to St. Maarten / St. Martin. I always enjoyed assisting people find the perfect rental property on the island and making their holiday a success. Aqualina Beach Club unit 401 is the first property that I own and do vacation rentals. I started in January of 2013 and the property has rented very well. I meet most guest personally and everyone seems to love staying in the unit. I have tried to create a Four Seasons / Ritz Carlton guest experience in the unit. Everything from the Temperpedic mattress, to the luxurious Hotel Collection linens, to the bath robs, L'Occitane bath products etc is just a level of quality not found in other rental units.
