Better for you, your significant other and/or your family!]
Go ahead----Lose yourself in the serenity away from the noise and haste daily life serves up by making memorable moments in this tropical paradise!
On the Caribbean island of St. Maarten, Sea Star #24 is an intimate seaside retreat with 1,047 square feet of well-appointed living space---just footsteps from Dawn Beach via private walkway (no hikes or streets to cross!), the Pool and the Oyster Pond Marina. Within the clicker- or keypad-activated gated, secure and renowned boutique-residence Coral Beach Club, Sea Star #24 provides guests with a quiet, pristine, desirable setting just over four miles removed from the cacophony of the crowds, bars, airport traffic, tourist enticements and high-rise or spartan accommodations that might not have air conditioning in E V E R Y room. A hidden gem at the beach club, Condo Sea Star #24 has gained rave reviews from guests who return year after year to enjoy this exquisitely-appointed and ideally-located condo. Ideal for couples, solo travelers, sibling getaways, families, au-pair arrangements and business travelers who need a break from their routine, or corporate enterprises who wish to acknowledge the contributions of their key personnel with an island vacation.
The exterior gallery (balcony) provides a serene, sunny morning northeastern view of Oyster Pond Marina and the inspiring backdrop of mountains and lush tropical foliage. Located on the windward, east coast side of the island, you will enjoy constant breezes from the beach or three-sided wrap-around balcony and year round average 78-88 degree temperatures to soothe your body, mind and spirit.
SeaStar 24 provides five-star amenities (including all linens, toiletries and bathrobes) to ensure your ultimate comfort and convenience and is located with easy access to several favored restaurants, other beaches, spas and fitness facilities, numerous water sports, entertainment venues and excursion opportunities to neighboring islands. Despite being away-from-it-all, guests who so choose have FREE high-speed wireless WiFi (Netgate) to stay in touch with family or business operations back home.
The island consists of two parts---the Dutch side and the French side, identified by border markers but requiring no passport for passage. Conveniently located on the Dutch side near the French border within the pristine, affluent quarters consisting of the Dawn Beach/Oyster Bay area, Condo SeaStar 24 provides the safety and security guests seek while traveling to the islands with gated parking outside and private walkway access to Dawn Beach (no hikes, drives or streets to cross to get to the beach!). Electrical current is American, so there is no need to borrow an electrical-current converter for your personal electric shaver or hairsetting appliances.
The condo sleeps four with a king-sized plush Euro pillow-top bed in the master bedroom, an en suite full bath and a queen-sized sofa bed in the living area, with a half bath conveniently located right off the living area. Private, in-condo washer and dryer are provided for guest use. The exterior three-sided wrap-around gallery (balcony) has a teak bistro table, two chairs and a small gas-grill. The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen has everything you need for that perfect meal. The condo has central air (2014-installed Daiken SEER 24.5 high efficiency inverter system) to ensure your comfort in EVERY room.
English is the predominant language on the Dutch side, and many ex-pat Americans call St. Maarten home. Dutch Gilders (NAF) is as readily accepted as is American currency and exchange is readily translated at point-of-purchase at shops. restaurants and grocers.
Currency on the French side is predominantly Euros, but many shops accept American dollars at the same rate as Euros while others will facilitate a conversion and, sometimes an upcharge (depending upon market value).
There are many wonderful eateries on both the Dutch and French sides of the island that your hosts and other guests have enjoyed. Menu samples are arranged in a notebook reference guide located in the Condo or you can ask the concierges, Diana, for other recommendations. The universal favorites consistently remain #1-rated BIG FISH, right on site, Canoa Restaurant, Mr. Busby's on the beach or Mama's Pizza or Captain Oliver's is just a short scenic walk or drive over the border across the harbor. Experience the local island flavors at Fatboy Jimmy's BBQ (across from GEBE Electric in Philipsburg, right in the public parking lot), and other local fare including all-you-can-eat ribs at Mark's Place in Phillipsburg, or delightful breakfast fare at La Sucrere, or try the Taste Factory in Simpson Bay or at Sarafina's in Marigot (Mar-e-go) where merely viewing the extensive showcase of fare is certain to pack on the pounds. Don't miss the baguettes offered at numerous bakeries--including the best FRENCH bread at Compal Le Fruit a Pains in Quartier D'Orleans---and share any leftovers, if any, with the local fish.
Discerning travelers make it a point to thoroughly assess the various parts of any island to insure their choice is a GOOD one, and to avoid the disappointment of learning that the photos didn't tell the whole story about location, amenities, lodging comfort and cleanliness, security, local restaurants, the overall environs and easy beach/pool access. Choose well; choose wisely! Choose SeaStar #24 at Dawn Beach/Oyster Pond for all the RIGHT (and GOOD) reasons, as our guests attest! Make it an adventure YOU'LL come back for year after year, too!

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Capt. and Mrs. Jon hail from the New England States and have, for years, enjoyed travelling throughout the Caribbean and decided to make St. Maarten their second home. Delighted to share SeaStar #24 with their extended families, friends and guests, they enjoy hearing about the varied adventures and special memories made by all during their stay.
Why the Owner Chose Oyster Pond, Sint Maarten:
After having been to all of the other islands, Capt. Jon and Louise were especially taken with the beauty of the island, the its friendly people, and the variety of beaches to choose from---37 of them! St. Maarten/St. Martin is home and favored vacation destination for many cultures! Avid boaters and snorkeling fans, the owners enjoy exploring the reef at Dawn Beach while their guests say that the water sports, zip-lining, horseback riding, hiking around the island, island hopping and shopping are among their favorite things to do when they are not just relaxing or frolicking in the surf at Dawn Beach or taking pictures there at sunrise. Rather than choose a more serene bayside setting on the island, Jon and Louise preferred and selected the open ocean windward beach setting where breezes are constant and the surf is refreshing, invigorating and ideal for swimming, floating around with a styrofoam noodle or jumping through the gently rolling waves. You can see the neighboring island of St. Barthelemy (St. Barts) in the distance from the beach---who could ask for a better place to take a vacation or spend a special holiday? While there are a great many other lodging options to choose from on the island, Jon, who is a credentialed Maritime Captain having retired from corporate life as an accountant for a multi-national components manufacturer and Louise, who is an accomplished sales and marketing professional and an avid writer, enjoy the beachfront setting and amenities Dawn Beach provides while still having a short-drive access to tourist enticements, shopping, nightlife and the other island attractions. Family and guests enjoy footstep access to the pool and beach versus steep-hill driving or major mountainside sweaty hikes in tropical weather encumbered with tote bags, towels and other beach implements to gain a days enjoyment in the crystal clear waters. All appliances and electrical outlets are U.S; no need to borrow a bulky current converter.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
SeaStar #24 provides the perfect romantic getaway for couples and busy career-minded professionals who need to recharge and relax. It is an ideal, well-maintained, clean, fully air-conditioned (not just the bedrooms as is the case with some other options) location for discerning or seasoned travelers who are seeking that something special away from the hustle and crowds of multi-location, high occupancy, chain hotels or minimalist, sparsely-appointed accommodations. Bathrobes, all luxury bath amenities, towels, premium linens and private washer and dryer are provided for guests. Beach towels, canvas tote, some sunscreen products, beach chairs, SPF-rated beach umbrella and two small coolers with refreezable ice packs are also provided. The modern 24.5 Seer High Efficiency Air-Conditioner provides TOTAL COMFORT throughout the condo. Ideally situated for privacy, comfort and security, Sea Star #24 is proclaimed PERFECT and the reason guests return year after year! SeaStar #24 features U.S. National Sleep Foundation approved LIGHTBLOCK TECHNOLOGY darkening drapery to enable every guest's perfect slumber to help ward off the effects of jet lag. Everything for your own convenience and entertaining is here, including a Viking wine cooler, teak dry bar, outdoor teak bistro set for two, gas grill, premium cookware, select spices/condiments, appliances, dinnerware, flatware, beverage glasses and stemware. In addition, the beach club provides complimentary beach chaises for guest use on Dawn Beach (umbrellas can be rented for the day). Maid service is provided daily. There are NO "pre- or post-stay cleaning charges!" Courtesy pick-up at the airport at arrival is optional, as is car rental reservation---simply let your hosts know your preferences. Car rental options are plentiful, but most guests utilize their corporate discount preferences or the owner's/club's recommendations. Come indulge and unwind and find yourselves home away from home, at SeaStar #24!!
