1 BEDROOM APARTMENT WITH LARGE BALCONY IN DREAM LOCATION - 775 SQ FT

Maho Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Luxurious 1 bedroom apartment for max. 4 pers. in Maho resort on the Dutch side

The apartment is on the third floor of the La Terrasse Suite Hotel. Its situation within the resort offers you maximum privacy with minimum disturbance from other guests or noisy elevators. You have a breath taking view on the Caribbean Sea and the flight path of arriving aircraft.

It comprises a large living with a sofa bed (queen size), fully equipeed kitchen, bathroom and a bedroom with a king size bed. The balcony is so large that you can comfortably dine there with 4 persons.

The total surface is 775 sq ft. From the living and the large balcony you have spectacular views of the Caribbean sea, the pool, tropical garden and…. the touch-down area of the runway of the airport.

Living and bedroom have separate airco’s.

Besides the pool deck and tropical garden, the building includes a large supermarket (open 7 am – 12 pm – days/week), a secured underground garage, 2 restaurants and shops. Laundromat facilities are inside the La Terrasse building..

The view of the landing aircraft is sensational. Although there is of course sometimes some noise when you have your cocktails on the balcony, the apartment is very well insulated, so inside all is quiet. There are no night flights.

Our guests have free access to the facilities of the Royal Islander Club-La Plage (except their pool area) and the Sonesta Beach Hotel across the street, including its health club, beach, bars and restaurants.

Maho Village has 24 hour security.

Look for our website: For more information on the apartment, its location and the amenities in the area have a look on our website. Google for 'rent our condo in Maho'. Be surprised and prepare for a fantastic time on St. Maarten. This will be a super holiday!

The suite has sleeping accommodation for 4 persons. However the bed in the living is a sofa bed. We do not recommend this for use by adults for extended periods of time.

We live on Saba Island, Dutch Caribbean, at 12 min flight from St. Maarten. The apartment is our pied-a-terre on St. Maarten. The apartment is available in periods that we are not using it ourself.

Len Swierstra purchased this apartment in 2010

We are residents of Saba, a small, volcanic island at 12 min. flight from St. Maarten. We have been looking for a long time for the perfect place to spend time for shopping and relaxing.

The apartment is very comfortable, offers a lot of privacy and is suitable for an extended stay. It has a fantastic view over the Caribbean see, the tropical garden and the flightpath of aircraft into St. Maarten.

Because the apartment is situated within a hotel resort, it provides all the facilties that one may expect. The key cards, beach towels, etc. can be collected at the front desk.

There is an underground garage with security, a supermarket which is open 7 days/week till 12pm.

Public transport to Philpsburg stops at the frontdoor. Restaurants, casino, beaches, golf course, etc are all within walking distance. A real place for a dream vacation.

The large apartment, great balcony and the sensational view at the Caribbean sea take care of an exceptional holiday experience.

The availability of an in-house supermarket and underground parking take away a lot of common holiday trouble.

The numerous restaurants and bars in Maho Village give you plenty of choices for night entertainment. The largest Casino of St. Maarten is next door. 24 hour security in Maho Village let you safely stroll the area at night.

You can save a lot on local transport costs. A rental car is only required if you want to make a tour around the island or want to visit the beaches on the French side. For your other transport needs you can make use of the public transport busses that stop in front of the resort. A ride to Philpsburg costs you $2/pp.

Still in need of a rental car? A Herz agency is on site.

EXCELLENT ENDROIT!

  • 5 of 5
L'appartement était en très bon état et aucune surprise. Excellente communication avec le propriétaire. Huit jours de soleil, de plaisirs et de repos. Le village de Maho est sans aucun doute l'endroit le plus intéressant à découvrir. Tout près de l'aéroport, il est fascinant de voir décoller les avions mais sans être pour autant incommodé par le bruit puisque l'appartement est très bien insonorisé. We cannot wait to go back and for sure we will rent this apartment again. We certainly recommend this property.
Thank you to the owner for sharing there «pied à terre» with us!

MOOI APPARTEMENT OP DE IDEALE LOCATIE

  • 5 of 5
Wij hebben genoten van ons verblijf in dit appartement.
Ruim, prima verzorgd appartement, dat van alle gemakken is voorzien.
Balkon is een geweldige plaats om vliegtuigen te spotten en lekker groot.
Zonaanbidders kunnen tot laat in de middag nog zonnen op het ligbed op het balkon.
In het appartement hoor je niets van het vliegverkeer.
Het complex waartoe het appartement behoort, heeft veel pluspunten.
Vriendelijke receptie, handdoekenservice, lekker rustig, mooie tuin.
Altijd een ligbed beschikbaar bij het zwembad.
En bij het zwembad een prachtig uitzichtpunt op het vliegveld.
De aanwezige parkeergarage is ook handig bij het huren van een auto.
Binnen een paar minuten lopen is veel beschikbaar, zoals supermarkt, restaurants, bars, casino, Winkels zijn er ook, maar niet zo veel.
De contacten met de eigenaar/verhuurder van het appartement zijn super!!
Wij kunnen ons voor de gevraagde prijs geen beter appartement voorstellen.
Ook de locatie is geweldig.

WONDERFUL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This is a long due review, but I want to give my feedback anyway, as this was one of our nicest Christmas vacations.

This was the first time that we visited the island and we definitively fell in love with it.
We rented Len’s apartment at La Terrasse and didn’t know what to expect with our choice. Turns out that it was one of the best choices possible. One of the best locations on the island at a bargain price.
Len was from the beginning very helpful and fast in answering all the questions and very efficient in making all the arrangements as smooth as possible.

Few things about the apartment: nice size, with kitchen fully equipped for self-catering, 2 TVs, excellent phonic isolation from the aircraft noise, steps to Maho Beach, very close (10 minutes or less walk) to Mullet Beach (one of the best beaches on the island), groceries store few yards from the entrance, nice pool and hot tub, very friendly staff, nice view of the sea, gardens, pool and … landing aircrafts, conveniently located at about the same distance from Phillibsurg and Marigot … in short a very nice home away from home.

The first time you enter the condo you might be scared of the noise from the airport. Fact is, once you close the door to the terrace, there is no noise inside. Also, after 10pm, there's no aircraft landing or departing at all. Truth is that at our departure we realized that we didn't get too many photos with landing planes in the background, we didn't get to get the photos with the planes on Maho beach, the time is so little when you have so many things to do and see.

Loved the island and its diversity. Being our first time on the island, we rented a car (from SIXT - highly recommended) to get to see as much as possible and we were on the move every day.

Thank you Len for sharing with us this little corner of paradise! We would love to come back!

GREAT VALUE AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Everything in the listing description for this well kept one-bedroom condo is "as advertised." This unit has to be one of the best bargains on St. Maarten. We loved the close proximity to Maho Beach and the Maho shopping area, and watching the landings/take offs of the big jets at the adjacent Princess Juliana International Airport. When you're inside, the jet noise is not a problem. The owner, Len, was very helpful and cooperative

IT IS A DREAM LOCATION !

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just stayed at Len and Sip condo at Royal Islander La Terrasse in Maho. It was a great week. The condo is exactly as described and pictured and the owners were very accommodating to our needs and questions. The location is fantastic and we enjoyed watching the planes landings and take-offs  from the balcony...what a show!.  It is comfortable and had all that we needed in the kitchen. The large bedroom has a king size bed and a 32" flat screen Sony TV. The pool and the surrounding gardens are inviting. Just across the street, is Maho beach and there are restaurants and boutiques all around.  We were pleased to be able to use the Sonesta Resort pool and beach facilities. Even a food market is just down below La Terrasse building. But most of all, it was very affordable for the quality condo we had. Thanks again Len and Sip for the great time we had renting your condo. We are looking forward to be back again !

FÜR FLUGZEUGVERRÜCKTE WIE UNS DER PERFEKTE PLATZ

  • 4 of 5
Schöne gemütliche Wohnung am Ende des Ganges, damit kaum Störung durch andere Gäste. Es war alles vorhanden, was man braucht, von Gewürzen zum Kochen bis hin zu Badespielzeug. Der Ausblick vom Balkon ist grandios auf die einfliegenden Flugzeuge und die größten Kreuzfahrtschiffe fahren morgens und abends auch noch vorbei. Die Anlage sehr gepflegt,fast leer zu unserer Zeit, den Pool hatten wir meistens für uns allein, und der dortige Aussichtsbalkon bietet den Blick auf das komplette Flugzeuggeschehen. Die Angestellten sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Ein kleines Manko war der Schacht im Schlafzimmer, der ab dem 3.Tag Geräusche machte, leider konnte das niemand beheben. Ansonsten war es toll, wieder diese Insel zu erleben. Vielen Dank an die Eigentümer, ihr seid sehr nett und habt uns viele Tipps gegeben. Wir werden Euch sicher weiterempfehlen.

The apartment is on the third floor of the La Terrasse Suite Hotel. Its situation within the resort offers the best views and minimum noise from other guests and elevators.

Maho beach is across the street, but within seven min. walking you can be on the golf course or the beaches of Mullet Bay or Simpson Bay. The famous Sunset Bar and the Bliss are even closer.

Maho Village is 1000 yards from the airport terminal. The public bus connection Philipsburg – Mullet Bay has a stop in front of the building. Thanks to 24 hour security you can safely stroll through Maho Village at any time during day or night.

Frontsteert in Philipsburg is world famous for its many, tax-free shops. Along the way you pass by the many mega yachts that have their mooring in The Lagoon.

Going the other way, in the direction of Marigot (French side of St. Maarten) you pass by the luxury indoor shopping center The Blue Mall and the large yacht harbor of Cupecoy.
