Cupecoy Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 1-4)

JusMarNa Penthouse is an elegant one-bedroom condominium located on the top floor of Building 12, suite 4B, at Porto Cupecoy, in Cupecoy, (Dutch) St. Maarten.

JusMarNa Penthouse was acquired and established as a one-bedroom condominium alternative or accompaniment to Chez SoColisa (VRBO.com/352757), a two-bedroom condominium located nearby at The Cliff at Cupecoy. JusMarNa Penthouse continues the best of design, decor, furnishings and technology that is the hallmark of Chez SoColisa. Like Chez SoColisa, it provides a high-quality vacation experience with reliable trustworthy service and a free car to enjoy during your stay. JusMarNa Penthouse is rented as a one-bedroom unit that comfortably sleeps four people by utilizing the king-size bed in the master bedroom and the comfortable queen size sofa bed in the living room.

Inside JusMarNa Penthouse you will experience the tranquility provided by the confluence of the majestic Simpson Bay Lagoon, the mountain range beyond and the nature preserve on French St. Martin that is literally outside of your window. It is located as close as you can get to French St. Martin while residing in Dutch St. Maarten. Located at the very end of Porto Cupecoy, JusMarNa Penthouse is where the beauty of nature explodes in front of you!

JusMarNa Penthouse includes vaulted-mahogany ceilings, high-quality, modern furnishings, Bosch washer & dryer, and state-of-the art audio-video equipment including HD TV, two flat-screen televisions with over 200 satellite channels and DVD/CD player. A “Sonos” wireless-sound system provides the options to stream music from the Internet; the cloud; your hometown radio stations; or, from your iPod/iPhone. A Samsung Galaxy smart phone available to you during your stay controls the “Sonos” sound system and gives you local telephone service.

A fully-equipped kitchen with granite countertops, Viking stainless-steel appliances and a full set of dishes, pots pans, flatware, blender, toaster, air pop corn maker and coffee maker awaits those inspired to cook. Our exclusive concierge service can ensure that upon arrival, you can open the refrigerator/freezer doors and find your pre-ordered food and beverage items chilled and ready for your immediate consumption. Sunbathe or enjoy outdoor dining for six on the 300-square-foot-covered terrace as you admire the Porto Cupecoy 54-slip white-glove Marina, adorned with amazing yachts, sailboats and pleasure craft. JusMarna Penthouse includes Vonage telephone service for free international telephone calls to the USA and Canada. Calls can also be received from the USA with no international charges to the caller. You will also find a beach umbrella and two chairs that you can carry to the beach with you if you choose.

Located in Porto Cupecoy, JusMarNa Penthouse offers 24- hour-gated security, remote-controlled secured entry for covered on-site parking, pool, fully equipped gym and two lighted-tennis courts. Porto Cupecoy offers the ultimate convenience of luxury boutiques, six restaurants and a gourmet supermarket, steps away from your penthouse. Porto Cupecoy’s Mediterranean-inspired plaza is the sight of free outdoor activities including movies, concerts and other family events. You can walk to the Blue Mall that is conveniently located next to Porto Cupecoy or across the street to the renowned Cupecoy Beach located on the Caribbean Sea.

I retired in late 2006 following a 37-year career in human resource management. I retired in California from a company in the energy sector. Prior to that I had a long career with one company in a number of geographical locations including Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, Chicago and Cleveland.

The majority of the year I reside at the Villas of Shore Pointe, Cupecoy. Therefore, when you rent JusMarNa Penthouse the chances are very high that I will be on island and personally help get oriented to the property. I have engaged someone to provide meet and greet services for first time JusMarna Penthouse clients if I am unable to do so.

When I am not in St. Maarten I reside in Atlanta, Georgia and Washington, DC.

Fred J. Grigsby, Jr. purchased this condo in 2013

I bought some timeshare weeks at the Sapphire Beach Resort and therefore started coming to St. Maarten annually for a couple of weeks. I feel in love with St. Maarten and the convenience of Cupecoy.

Next I purchased a two-bedroom condo at The Cliff at Cupecoy intended as my SXM retirement home. In 2008 I moved to a villa at Shore Pointe and began to market Chez SoColisa as a one or two–bedroom rental property. Due to the success we have had promoting Chez SoColisa the need for a complimentary one-bedroom property became obvious.

We searched high-end condo properties in hoping to find a very nice one-bedroom to compliment Chez SoColisa. This search included a one-bedroom at The Cliff and three one-bedroom condos available at Porto Cupecoy. JusMarNa Penthouse simply put was the best property available on the market. It like all of the Porto Cupecoy condos has been finished with high-end cabinetry, appliances and other appointments. Located at the end of Porto Cupecoy, JusMarNa Penthouse provides the tranquility provided by the confluence of the majestic Simpson Bay Lagoon, the mountain range beyond and the French side nature preserve. Many condos at Porto Cupecoy enjoy the beauty of the Marina and its vessels but few enjoy the view offered by JusMarNa Penthouse.

Porto Cupecoy is a unique development in St. Maarten with its Mediterranean inspired design. The plaza surrounded by restaurants and unique boutiques promotes a lively environment with consistent family oriented activities. Security was clearly a priority in the design of Porto Cupecoy. Indeed you can’t walk or drive to JusMarna Penthouse without a security escort or without possessing a remote control to drive into the well lighted secured garage or a key fob to walk through secured gates. The covered garage parking space that is reserved for JusMarNa Penthouse residents is only four spaces removed from the elevator that will take you up to JusMarNa Penthouse.

Porto Cupecoy provides a state-of-the-art air-conditioned fitness center overlooking the outdoor pool available for your use at your discretion. These wonderful facilities and the tennis courts are reserved for the exclusive use of Porto Cupecoy residents and guests.

I love the convenience to a variety of beaches within walking or short driving distances on both the Dutch and French side of the island. This includes both traditional beaches and clothing optional beaches.

I love the variety of excellent restaurants surrounding the plaza, down the street and a couple of minutes away by car in Cupecoy and Maho.

Lastly, JusMarNa Penthouse is very competitively priced against other high-end one-bedroom one & one-half bathroom options available in SXM. Additional, it includes the use of a car during your stay. Your only obligation is to replace the fuel you used. JusMarNa Penthouse has been designed to comfortably sleep 4 with no “up-charge” for the 3rd and 4th persons.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
The description and photos that were depicted in this listing are very accurate. No 'bait-and-switch' here! It was exactly as advertised and had such great amenities a a king-size bed, hair dryer, washer and dryer (needed to Google what the slots in the dispensers meant - should have asked Linda!), safe, iron and ironing board, beach chairs with an umbrella, Satellite TV, a SONOS music system, free-to-use phone, a cell phone for use in the Dutch part, a fully stocked kichen as far as dishes, utentils, and pots/pans, dishwasher, microwave, and ceiling fans in every room. It also had a coffee maker which, once I figured out how it worked, worked beautifully for making hot water for my tea (don't drink coffee!). The views were amazing and the balcony was a perfect place to take them all in. There were four restaurants right within the compund with a market right outside. Although I didn't use the pool, it looked like a very nice one. There is a beach directly across the street and an extremely nice beach (Mullet Bay) about 10 minutes away.
If we come back here, I would definitely stay again. Loved it!
Only reason not to recommend for families for young children was that it was a 1-bed place. the couch folded out which would work for teenagers but not young kids (in my opinion).

JUSABSOLUTELYMAGNIFICIENT

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have travelled our fair share to SXM and thought we had found all the great perks of this beautiful island until we stayed at this condo. It surpassed all our expectations and was immaculate in every way. Fred was such a wonderful host and resource for all our needs. A dependable car was provided that has great gas mileage. The amenities included were far beyond what we could ask for the price we paid. Porto Cupecoy is such a great location for any traveller and the complex is secure with a beautiful pool and gym. The balcony and windows boast views of the Marina and city. We cannot wait to return to this property for all our SXM travels.

FAULTLESS FEW DAYS IN ST MARTIN!

  • 5 of 5
We booked three days at Fred's place, short notice for a long weekend. He was helpful from the start right through to the end of our stay. The apartment was faultless: spacious, well furnished, huge balcony, king-size comfortable bed, Sonos music system, 2x huge TV's and fully equipped with everything you would ever need... Location was perfect, and the car was a nice touch. TBH I never write reviews, but felt this was worth a mention. Highly Highly recommended.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS AND LASTING MEMORIES

  • 5 of 5
I am very particular about our vacation "home away from home". I do a lot of careful research before I even contact the owner to inquire about availability. I read the reviews. I was very pleased to arrange a 5 night stay at Jusmarna penthouse on our very first trip to St. Maarten. Even with all of the careful planning I did in preparation for the trip, I could not have been more pleased. Porto Cupecoy is an awesome location. All of the amenities of the Porto Cupecoy property are stated in the description. Read it carefully. Every single one of them is true. You will like it all.
But the very best part is Jusmarna penthouse. What did we like the best? That's hard to narrow down (although my husband started doing research on the Sonos systems before we even left St Maarten). Everything we thought we might need for our stay was already there. Everything we hadn't thought of is there too. Mostly we enjoyed the security and serenity, along with the beautiful views from the windows and veranda.
The Jusmarna penthouse is fabulously decorated and very well maintained. Fred Grigsby Jr has, because of the our total vacation experience, ensured that his property calendar will be the first thing consulted when we decide that we need to visit St. Maarten again.
Jusmarna is an amazing place that never failed to exceed expectations.

Owner's Response: Kelly, we thank you so much for your endorsement. The fact that you conducted front-end research on your rental choices and chose JusMarNa Penthouse is very meaningful. Having now experienced JusMarNa Penthouse and endorsed it is terrific and much appreciated.
I first invested in the Sonos Wireless Sound System for my home. I loved the quality of the sound and the flexibility of the system so much that when we were developing JusMarNa Penthouse we knew we had to invest in our second system. If you and Mark do invest in one I am sure you will enjoy it.
Thanks again and please come back!
