                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2014

                  Why Simpson Bay:
                  I have worked for years handling vacation rentals in St. Maarten and I always enjoyed assisting people to find their perfect rental property on the island and making their holiday a success. I believe that with Le Papillon I have found the perfect rental. There are many beaches on the island however there are very few that are over a mile long and this white and beautiful. I like the fact that you can walk from one end to the next, take a dip, stop in one of the 3 bars/restaurants that are on the way to get a refreshment and continue to have fun without driving anywhere. Or if you are a sports lover you can play volleyball by one of the restaurants or take a ride on jet ski, or go kayaking or do any other water sports on this beach. And if you do not want to do anything you can sit and watch the boats on the water or how they pass through the bridge and still have an amazing time. Or watch a sunset from your terrace or the beach. I think you too will realize that you have found your own paradise. That is what I like about this place.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  Le Papillon apartment is the perfect beachfront getaway place that has been PROFESSIONALLY DESIGNED to offer the most amount of comfort and luxury. It has a view of crystal blue sea, lagoon, mountains, boats, top of the palm trees, you name it. It has a terrace right above the Caribbean Sea which provides an amazing view of nearby islands and passing cruise ships. It is a brand new & fully equipped with a great taste.
