Overview

Simpson Bay Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 2)

Spacious penthouse one bedroom suite in the luxurious Aqualina Beach Club directly on beautiful Simpson Bay beach. Unit 401 is the ideal property for a romantic getaway. With over 1300 square feet of air conditioned space and two private terraces, you will enjoy the comforts of outdoor living in this spectacular unit. New to the rental market and recently furnished. The spacious master bedroom (16' x 22') opens up to a large wrap around terrace with stunning views over the beach and out over the blue Caribbean Sea. Relax in your king size temperpedic bed with luxurious Hotel Collection 600 thread count linens and gaze out over the ocean to the Dutch island of Saba on the horizon. Enjoy amazing sunsets from the large beachside terrace where you will find chaise lounge chairs and an outdoor dining table for eight. One step in the master bathroom and you will be amazed. Both the Jason Hydotherapy AirMasseur tub and the large walk in shower with Kohler Rainmaker system open up to a private garden area open to the elements. Here you will find two chaise lounge chairs making it the ideal place for sun tanning in total privacy. A separate water closet and dual Kohler lavatory sinks makes this a perfect couple's bathroom. After a relaxing bath, slip in to one of the Hotel Collection fine robes and enjoy the rest of your day in paradise. The unit is fully air conditioned (central air conditioning) yet has fans throughout and due to the corner location on the prevailing winds side of the building, allow for one to not use the air conditioning if this is preferred. Other amenities include in room hotel safe, gas BBQ grill, powder room for guests, seating for 18 throughout the unit for entertaining (beach side terrace: 8, dining room table: 4, lagoon side terrace: 4, bar counter: 2) The fully equipped kitchen is just large enough to prepare an elegant meal should you wish to dine at home. With all of the island's many fabulous restaurants, this area tends not to get used often. One will find a coffee maker, blender & glassware for entertaining. For just one couple, you will not find a better property for your island holiday.

Looking for more space? I am adding my second unit at Aqualina Beach Club to the vacation rental market. Unit 402 (directly adjacent to unit 401) is a two bedroom and will be available as of August 2013.

About Michael Deher

I was lucky to be born and raised on the island of St. Maarten. My father comes from the small French town of Grand Case. He moved to the Dutch side at an early age and later in life met my mother who had moved down from the US to work at a hotel on the island. My grand parents had sold everything in Connecticut and moved the family to the island in the 60's to open Mary's Fancy Plantation hotel. Back in those days it was the place to stay. I attended American University in Washington DC and love the lifestyle St. Maarten allows.

Michael Deher purchased this condo in 2009

Why Michael Deher chose Simpson Bay

Since graduating from university in 1992, I have worked for years handling vacation rentals to St. Maarten / St. Martin. I always enjoyed assisting people find the perfect rental property on the island and making their holiday a success. Aqualina Beach Club unit 401 is the first property that I own and do vacation rentals. I started in January of 2013 and the property has rented very well. I meet most guest personally and everyone seems to love staying in the unit. I have tried to create a Four Seasons / Ritz Carlton guest experience in the unit. Everything from the Temperpedic mattress, to the luxurious Hotel Collection linens, to the bath robs, L'Occitane bath products etc is just a level of quality not found in other rental units.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
I have had the pleasure of experiencing a number of high end resorts and hotels around the world, but I prefer to take the less beaten path at times and have the amenities of being at home, so I stay in vacation rentals often as well. Aqualina is easily one of my favorites. This residence is exceptional in quality and is comparable to the finest of 5 star hotels. The owner was modest in his listing of this unit's amenities, everything you can imagine and need is in the condominium.

The location is great, within walking and driving distance to a great variety of shopping and dining. I do, however, recommend renting a car to take in all the island has to offer. And there is a lot! If you never wanted to leave, that would be just as well, as the kitchen is fit for a gourmet cook and one can choose their pleasure whether its lounging in front of the flat screen television, sitting on the spacious balcony with a frozen drink overlooking the luxurious yachts or beach combing the quiet stretch of beach. On the couple of days we didn't leave the building, we didn't feel slighted at all because it was very relaxing. It is VERY easy to not want to leave! My husband watched the World Cup on the high tech entertainment system while I took a book onto the spacious balcony to lie out and sunbathe or nap. We spent lots of time at the pool, beach combing and enjoyed walks through the neighborhood to grab a bite to eat. The locals are very friendly and helpful.

Pet is a gem and we were able to contact her at anytime. Michael was also always available for any questions or concerns and made the visit to the island very easy. St. Maarten/St. Martin is lovely, there is something for everyone, and we are already planning our return, a week was just not enough time!

Excellent taste and the highest standards

  • 5 of 5
Just stayed at Aqualina unit 401 for 2 wonderful weeks. This one bedroom condo is in a very nice building with a garage, and the views from the long terrace are amazing. it is elegantly furnished and comes fully equipped. Michael has thought about everything to make his guests feel welcome and very comfortable. He is available by phone or email for any request or issue, and always very helpful. Pet comes every day (except week ends) to clean and is very nice. Out of curiosity, we also looked at his 2 bedroom next door, which Michael just renovated, and is the ultimate in luxury. This duplex condo is so beautiful and offers top of the line in everything. Michael provided us with a list of restaurants and activities for our stay. All his recommendations were excellent, and we really appreciated his help and kindness. We hope to come back in the future.

THE BEST VIEWS AND LUXURIOUS ACCOMMODATIONS

  • 5 of 5
This unit is spectacular, and the best getaway place imaginable. From enjoying the beach and gorgeous sea to watching the yachts come and go, it is a unique vacation paradise. The beds are very comfortable for the perfect sleep. Then waking up to the view of the sea is the perfect alarm clock. Different dining spots in the unit & in the patios provide views of the beach, views down the coast, and views of the island with constant entertainment! Both Michael and Pet made the stay so stress-free that we are returning next year.

5 Star Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I just returned from a relaxing week at unit 401 at the Aqualina Beach Club. We did not want to leave. The rental is even better in person than the VRBO images. This place is for people who require a high taste level in living. The view from deck is really spectacular. The location is very convenient to restaurants and gourmet grocery shopping in Simpson Bay. We enjoyed picking up fresh croissants daily at Cafe Atlantico a french bakery. Pet did a fantastic job keep the place clean daily. Michael provided a listing of excellent restaurants and things to do, prior to our arrival. I would highly recommend the restaurants Le Sand and Temptation. Of course the Sunset Beach Bar is fun too! You will need a car or SUV to explore the island and get to the many beautiful beaches. Check out the Palm Beach Club on Orient Bay, Dawn Beach, Baie Rouge and Mullet Bay. We did take a plane to St Barth for the day which was a lot of fun. Enjoy!

Perfect Perfect Perfect

  • 5 of 5
This property is gorgeous and exactly how it is depicted in the pictures. My husband and I went for our honeymoon and had a fantastic time. Much better than the typical resort by far!!! Michael was fantastic and always available as needed. We would go back over and over and stay here. When talking to locals at restaurants/bars, there eyes got wide with jealousy when we told them where we were staying. Recommend renting a car, it is needed, but there are plenty of things to do close by without leaving Simpson Bay. We traveled all over the island during the day, but this is the place to stay! The beach in front of the unit isn't huge, but it is absolutely gorgeous from the large balcony. We choose to be adventurous and head to other bays while on the island, but it would be very easy to never want to leave Auqalina. I would recommend this property to anyone. Our favorite spots for food were Phaalon (Thai, not sure on spelling) and Little Jerusulam for lunch. Barnacles was a great Greek spot, very casual, but all the food was fantastic!

The key advantage of Simpson Bay beach is the spectacular beach with its breathtaking ocean views, however the location is a main plus as well. Simpson Bay is a quiet old fishing village and the beach is not well know and hence always quiet, yet drive out to the main road and you are close to everything. A few minutes drive West and you are in Maho, the entertainment center of the island where you will find casinos, restaurants, shops, spas, beach bars, golf, tennis, etc. Drive the other way and you will come to marinas with ferries to other islands, water sports and more restaurants and casinos as well as a movie theater. The capitals of Philipsburg and Marigot are not far and offer many activities including duty free shopping.

The complex also has a cistern so water outages do not affect the residences.
