1 BEDROOM CONDO WITH SUPERLATIVE VIEWS OF ST BARTS

Dawn Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

'Superlative views of St. Barts' is how one renter described the view from Princess Heights unit 402.

And a visitor from November 2011 wrote, 'We are back home now. It was the best vacation ever!!!! Your condo is awesome - spacious , clean , tastefully decorated....It felt like an expensive hotel and a home at the same time. I took so many photos of the sunset and sunrise from the balcony-the views are amazing ....I am so glad I rented it. '

From the time you walk in through the mahogany front door, you'll know why this luxury boutique hotel with its granite counter tops, recessed lighting and marble floors, is consistently rated by visitors as one of the top rental experiences on the island.

Unit 402 is a spacious, 1000 sf, 1 bedroom, 1 and 1/2 bath condo. Our condo has been repainted, a new central a/c unit has been installed and the kitchen has been upgraded with stainless steel appliances, blender, and a coffee/cappuccino machine. New living room furniture includes a queen size pullout sofa and an over-sized single pull out chair, both with extra plush mattresses. There is a flat screen TV and DVD player and free broadband internet. The bedroom has a king size pillow-top mattress, 500 thread-count duvet comforter, flat screen TV and DVD player. There are also 2 beach chairs and an umbrella for your use at the beach.

A short walk or drive down the hill will put you on Dawn Beach which you've already seen from the balcony. Rated by many travel magazines as one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean, you can relax under the palm trees or find great snorkeling right off the beach. However, there are many world class beaches a rental car drive away! Visit Orient Beach, the most famous on the island with many bars, restaurants and activities. Pinel Island, a 10 minute ferry ride from French Cul-de-Sac, with warm, calm crystal clear water. Plum Bay (Baie aux Prunes in French) and Baie Longue are both beautiful nearly deserted mile long beaches. There are many more beaches to discover as well, each as beautiful as the next! You may want to take a day to cruise to Anguilla, St. Barts, or Saba, beautiful islands which can be seen from St. Maarten/St. Martin.

After a long day at the beach, take a dip in Princess Height's Olympic size pool, which is never crowded, or relax on the large covered balcony with a cool exotic drink.

With a full kitchen, you can easily eat meals in, though the island boasts many world class restaurants. Grand Case is well known throughout the Caribbean and the world for its restaurants. But there are many other fine restaurants throughout the island.

We take pride in our condo and want to make your visit as comfortable and as memorable as possible. Never hesitate to ask a question or let us know if there is something we can do to make it more enjoyable.

PLEASE NOTE: There are no elevators in the building. We are one floor above ground level. There are 24 steps to our level and about 5 steps further to our door. Though we'd love to have you stay, if you have difficulties with stairs you may want to consider another option. Also, as Barbara and I can both attest, if the stairs are wet, it is safer to descend barefooted rather than wearing flip flops. It's very slippery!

PLEASE NOTE: There have been reports in the press about phishing with regards to rental properties. We will NEVER ask you to wire money to us. If someone should do so from our rental unit, refuse to do it and contact VRBO immediately!

Barbara and I have been coming to St. Maarten for over 20 years. In 2004, we were looking to purchase a condo and just happened by. Even though there was no for sale sign, Barbara insisted on checking it out. It just so happened they were selling the individual units. As soon as we walked in the door and saw the beautiful view, we knew we wanted to buy.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2004

The first time we came to St. Maarten, we felt like we were home. The first place we stayed was the old Dawn Beach Hotel, so we always liked this part of the island. We've always dreamed of living or retiring here.

Stayed one week in this condo with my husband. Enjoyed the terrace with the wonderful views. Condo was just as described on VRBO. Owner was great to work with. Definitely need a car to see the island. Taxis are very expensive. Condo is in a remote area which we liked very much. Only a 15 min drive to Orient and Philipsburg. Oyster Pond a 5 min drive from the condo. Great restaurants close by. Small store for essentials close by. Staff was very helpful with any questions we had. If you like peacefulness this is the place to be. Do your research on restaurants, there is something for everyone close by from moderate to expensive. Would definitely stay here again.

Gorgeous condo in Dawn Beach

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 15, 2014

I loved the condo in Dawn Beach. It was tastefully decorated and the kitchen was well-stocked -- important for somebody like me who likes to cook now and then. The terrace was my favorite part of the condo as it overlooked the ocean and St. Barts. Perfect place to catch the sunrise. My only issue with the condo was that the water pressure in the shower was very low but I'm surmising that had more to do with the island than the condo itself.

It was a good location for us. There's Dawn Beach a 5 minute walk away. Grand Case (where we did most of our dining) was 25 minutes away by car. And it was quiet at night so we could get some sleep.

Rick was super prompt with responding to my Emails and any questions I had. It was a pleasure dealing with him. I only wish other condo owners can be as responsible.

I will have to warn you that the staff of Princess Heights, as nice as they are, are mostly comprised of hospitality students doing their internship. As they are learning the ropes, you may encounter some issues that you probably wouldn't at a hotel staffed with people who know what they're doing. For example, some of the workers didn't know how to set up a room key properly. This caused me to have four instances where the room key wouldn't work. And it wasn't the batteries on the door or anything like that -- it was because the keys weren't properly coded by the students. There were other issues as well, but I don't really want to get into that here.

Nevertheless I had a great time here and would probably stay here again if I decide to visit St. Maarten in the future.

Not much else to say after my two previous reviews. Rick is still easy to do business with and the condo is still as nice as it was the first time we used it. All thumbs up!

Absolutely stunning views from balcony. Perfect from morning sunrise to evening sunsets. Great beaches nearby and on-site pool was a great way to cool down before venturing out again. Happy Hours at Oyster Pond and close to excellent restaurants to satisfy everyone. Our family enjoyed every moment.
