                      Located in the heart and soul of Simpson Bay! Sits upon a cliff overlooking four countries and everything in between! Under a 3 minute walk down to Kim Sha beach were beach chairs await you! Grab a snack and frozen Piña Colada at Buccanear Beach Bar! Within walking distance to several grocery stores, fish markets, a pharmacy, two casinos, a movie theater, and over 75 restaurant/bars! The perfect location for everyone! Relax on the porch and enjoy watching the yachts go in and out of the Marina as the bridge goes up and down. Go scuba diving with Ocean Explorers located on Kim Sha Beach. Either cook dinner at the house or go out to eat at one of the many gourmet restaurants. Look at the stars on the rooftop deck. Or rent a jeep and enjoy discovering some of the islands 38 beaches! And if that's still not enough to keep you busy, head to the Red Piano late night for dancing and Mojito's!


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: Our first visit to Sint Maarten in October of 2008. After falling in love with the island, we began to search for a vacation home. We discovered 'Chateau Jolie Vue' in late 2009 and made a purchase. HGTV followed us on our search for an 'International House'! We purchased the home because it was in a great location, had plenty of room for our family and friends, and had the best view on the island! We bought it as a fixer-upper and knew we had a lot of work to do, but when it was finished it would be worth it. Now, we have built our dream house and enjoy traveling to the island frequently!

                      Why the Owner Chose Simpson Bay:
                      THE VIEW.... enough said!
