About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Chez SoColisa is an elegant 2 BR condo located on the 4th floor, Suite D4, of The Cliff at Cupecoy.

SoColisa was developed as a residence for its owner, not as a vacation rental property. Therefore, the best of design, decor, furnishing and technology was deployed to evolve what is now among the highest quality vacation properties you can experience. Examples include high quality contemporary furnishings shipped from Cantoni Furniture Store located in Orange County, California; custom made tables and consoles; designer selected backsplash in kitchen; the best in A/V including 3 flat screen TVs, iPod docks built into the walls in each BR, custom built A/V command center with iPod dock, CD/DVD player and satellite with extensive programming.

SoColisa can be rented as a one bedroom utilizing the master bedroom which is equipped with a king size bed & 1 1/2 baths, or as a two bedroom with 2 & 1/2 baths. The 2nd bedroom offers two double beds and can sleep four.

The moment you enter SoColisa you will know you have secured the right accommodations for the high quality vacation you seek and deserve. Your comfort and convenience while vacationing have been the focus of our planning......and we have succeeded! You will experience high quality and custom built furnishings throughout; a breath taking unobstructed straight on view of the Caribbean Sea; a back terrace overlooking the lighted tennis court; a custom built entertainment center; a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances for those who wish to cook; a Keurig coffee/tea center with complimentary coffees and teas. The master suite has been modified to replace the standard bathroom door with a sliding shoji screen for the bathroom and closet. The master bathroom has double sinks and a Jacuzzi bathtub. Both BRs have custom-made blackout window coverings.

SoColisa is equipped with a central sound system throughout, including the BRs, 55” TV and a DVD/CD player in the living room and 32' TV's in each of the bedrooms. The BRs also have iPod docks built into the walls that will override anything being played through the central sound system.
Free wire less Internet access is provided as well as free local and international phone calls. A USA area code has been incorporated so you can receive calls from the USA with no international charges to the caller.

Located in The Cliff at Cupecoy, SoColisa offers 24 hour security, secured on-site parking, outdoor pool & Children’s pool, indoor heated olympic size lap pool, weight room, aerobics room, exercise equipment such as treadmills and cycles, lighted tennis court, steam room, sauna, and the stylish Christian Dior® Health Spa to further indulge your pleasures. The Cliff Cafe, a lunchtime delight, provides wonderful French food to further enhance your Chez SoColisa stay.

Cupecoy is ideally located just 5 minutes from Juliana International Airport and within walking distance from casinos, quality international restaurants and St. Maarten's only golf course. It's a 10-minute drive to Marigot, the French St. Martin's capital, and a 20-minute drive to Philipsburg, Dutch St. Maarten's capital.

For those who enjoy getting around the beautiful and culturally diverse island of St. Maarten/St. Martin, a fully loaded 'Suzuki Grand Vitara i' is provided free of cost. Your only obligation will be to replace the gasoline used during your stay at Chez SoColisa. We also provide you with a free cell phone for your use while renting Chez SoColisa.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I retired in late 2006 following a 37-year career in human resource management. I retired in California from a company in the energy sector. Prior to that I had a long career with one company in a number of geographical locations including Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, Chicago and Cleveland. The majority of the year I reside at Villa Bahari located at the Villas of Shore Pointe, Cupecoy. Therefore, if you rent Chez SoColisa the chances are very high that I will be on island and personally help get oriented to the property. When I am not in St. Maarten I reside in Atlanta, Georgia and Washington, DC.

Why the Owner Chose Maho, Sint Maarten:
I bought some timeshare weeks at the Sapphire Beach Resort and therefore started coming to St. Maarten annually for a couple of weeks. I feel in love with St. Maarten and the convenience of Cupecoy. Therefore, when I learned that The Cliff at Cupecoy was going to be developed I bought in pre-construction. As they say, 'the rest is history'!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I lived at Chez SoColisa for the first 15 months while it was being furnished and decorated. I love the building and its amenities. There is a strong sense of security due to the design of the complex and the quality and stability of the security staff. The underground parking you will enjoy at Chez SoColisa is located on the top floor of the garage and directly across from the elevator that will take you up to Chez SoColisa, suite D4. There is a great air conditioned fitness center and pools available for your use at your discretion. Many residents of St. Maarten have expressed a desire to buy memberships to the gym. I served as Chairman of the HOA board at The Cliff for the first 4 years of its existence. We consistently rejected these revenue-generating proposals to preserve the privacy and convenience of the fitness center for the owners and their guest, including renters. I love the convenience to a variety of beaches within walking distance (including the beach at The Cliff) and on the French side of the island. This includes both traditional beaches and clothing optional beaches. I love the variety of excellent restaurants in the building, across the street and a couple of minutes away by car in Maho and at Puerto Cupecoy. I enjoy playing blackjack and can frequently be found across the street at the Atlantis Casino. By the way, you will never see the casino complex from Chez SoColisa as you do from many other condos at The Cliff. A feature I appreciate.
