Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Nestled into a lush hillside on the east coast of St. Maarten at Dawn Beach is a lovely boutique condo hotel. It is just minutes from the French side of the island and the community of Oyster Pond. Specializing in personalized service and spacious suites, Princess Heights is ranked by travelers as one of the top ten places to stay in St. Maarten.

Our top floor Unit 501 has beautiful ocean views from its large, covered balcony with lovely trade winds. Enjoy your morning coffee there as you watch the sunrise over Dawn Beach with St. Barths in the distance. There is a seating area with two arm chairs and a Frontgate cafe dining set which seats four. "Perfect, especially for watching part of the Heineken Regatta", comments our guest from March, 2016.

Our spacious, 1000 square foot, fully air-conditioned condo has a master bedroom which has been upgraded with a king size Serta I-Series mattress, new pillows, flat screen television, bedroom furniture and luxurious bed linens. Pottery Barn blackout drapes and rods have been installed. The view from the bedroom balcony is well worth waking up to.

The en suite bathroom is tile, marble and granite with a tub/shower combination. There is a half bathroom conveniently located off the hallway to the bedroom.

The spacious living room has been newly furnished with a queen size Italian sofa bed featuring the 'rapido system' with a Simmons mattress, comfortable chairs and reading lamps. A LG 50-inch LED flat screen television with a Blu-ray disc player is on the contemporary media stand. Choose what to watch from the collection of 60+ DVD/Blu-ray discs. There is also a premium wireless Bluetooth speaker for listening to music. The eating area has four dining chairs surrounding the glass top table with reupholstered bar stools at the eating counter. There are also Pottery Barn blackout drapes convenient for the guest who is sleeping on the sofa bed. Both the bedroom and the living room have Hunter ceiling fans.

The kitchen has granite counter tops and has been upgraded with stainless steel appliances including a new convection range, microwave oven, dishwasher and refrigerator. The kitchen has been fully equipped with all new cookware, blender, toaster, Cuisinart coffee maker, kettle, dishes, glassware, flatware and cooking utensils. This is a kitchen where one can make breakfast, a quick snack or a gourmet dinner.

In addition, all of the conveniences such as a hair dryer, in room safe and iron/ironing board are available in the unit along with free wireless internet.

Our guests (two sisters) from February, 2016 said it best. "We had such a wonderful time and truly enjoyed your home so very much! It's absolutely perfect."

Not only do we have Dawn Beach, with its beautiful turquoise water within walking distance, guests can also enjoy several other beaches just a short drive away; Le Galeon, Maho, Guana Bay and Orient Beach which is famous for its water sports and beachfront restaurants. Pinel Island is a ten minute ferry ride from French Cul-de-Sac and there are day cruises to Anguilla, St. Barths and Saba.

The island is renowned for its European influence from both its Dutch and French ancestry. There is an international flavor to the island shown by the shops, markets and restaurants which flourish here. Nearby is Oyster Pond which is home to a picturesque marina with restaurants and bars. At Dawn Beach you will find restaurants, shops, spa and a casino. The Dutch capital of Philipsburg is just a fifteen minute drive away with its boardwalk, restaurants and shopping on Front Street. The gourmet capital of the Caribbean, Grand Case and the French capital, Marigot are also easily accessible.

Princess Heights offers an onsite pool with lounge chairs and umbrellas, a private gym and laundry facilities for your use at no additional cost. We have also provided two Tommy Bahama beach chairs, both a soft and hard cooler and ice packs for our guests.

There is ample parking available at either the main parking lot or the upper level gated parking lot. Our unit would either be two flights of stairs up from the main level parking lot or two flights of stairs down from the upper level parking lot.

We are certain that you will enjoy your time in St. Maarten with friendly hotel staff to assist you, a wonderful island to explore and a lovely condominium to serve your needs.

About Tim and Janet Matthews

We first came to St. Maarten as a family in 2004 and have returned to the island frequently since then. We enjoy the lovely beaches, both the gourmet and casual restaurants and the laid back atmosphere.

Tim and Janet Matthews purchased this condo in 2014

Why Tim and Janet Matthews chose Oyster Pond

We have stayed at Princess Heights many times in the past ten years and decided that this was a good time for us to buy our own getaway place. We enjoy staying on this part of the island as it is convenient to Philipsburg, the French side and wonderful beaches.

What makes this condo unique

We chose Princess Heights for its location and wonderful views. Our condominium is private with it being at the end of a top floor. Our balcony has a whitewashed loft like ceiling which gives it a true Caribbean feeling. Since purchasing our condo in 2014 we have refurnished it and updated necessary elements such as the air conditioning, ceiling fans, shower fixtures, ceilings, windows and doors thereby significantly improving its comfort level.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

I would like to thank the owner Janet for her availability and kindness. She was always available for any question we had and she was very helpful. Princess Heights was absolutely amazing. We rented an apartment (unit 501) with a great view, very clean, fully equipped kitchen, and good A/C.

The staff in reception welcomed us warmly and were very helpful in any request we had.

We would return to Princess Heights and I highly recommend it.

A no fault!

  • 5 of 5

We would like to thank our hosts for their availability, the quality of our exchanges and their kindness. Everything was in line with our expectations. The apartment was clean and very well equipped. Very up-to-date and well maintained (which is important in the islands). The pool was greatly appreciated by the whole family. The view is magnificent and the location is ideal if you wish to spend a holiday in complete tranquility. And what about the staff on site, the customer service was outstanding! I recomand without hesitation this rental.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for allowing my fiancé and I to stay at your wonderful condo. We come to St.Maarten several times per year and have always stayed in Simpson Bay. This time we wanted to venture out an stay somewhere new. WOW! We have been missing out. Absolutely loved this side of the island. Your beautiful place is very convenient to beaches and restaurants. Loved the beautiful view every morning and evening from your balcony. The pictures of your condo are exactly what you posted. You didn't miss a beat on providing everything we needed for our stay. We will definitely come back and stay at your condo.My opinion the best restaurant on that side of island is BIG FISH at oyster pond. and for laid back atmosphere with great food and cocktails. DINGHY DOCKS. tHE OWNER , Seth is very personable and Alan, the bartender rocks! We made fast friends.. lol! Hopefully we will be back sooner than later... Cheers, Robin and Craig

well appointed condo with tremendous views

  • 5 of 5

As advertised. The condo was furnished with top quality furnishings and gourmet kitchen. The marble floors and counter tops added to the sense of quality. Flat screen TVs are available in the bed room and living room and the balcony is spacious. The beach is accessible by a short 5 min walk or even driving over to the adjacent Westin. Several very good restaurants are within a 3 minute drive. Would highly recommend.

Brilliant Condo

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed on this property for 8 nights. We were thrilled with our stay. The view from the balcony overlooking Dawn Beach, with Saint Barthelemy in the distance, was absolutely stunning during sunset.

The bang for your buck is going to be hard to beat on this island. The bed was comfortable, the appliances were up to date, and the entertainment systems were all new and in good working order. There was a pool on the property that would be perfect for the family with kids. On our way out of town we stopped at a local eatery, a gentleman at the bar was complaining about the noise of the planes due to the proximity of his hotel to the airport. This certainly was a non issue for us, we had the luxury of sleeping in the peace and quiet.

I would highly recommend this condo, we plan on returning!
