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
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.
You will not find another property on St. Maarten that offers such a spacious private rooftop area complete with large professional bar (with True 2 door glass cooler, stand alone ice machine, dual sink, 60' Samsung flat screen Smart wifi TV, and all the glassware to host a party for 100 people), hot tub over looking the beach (with seating for seven and built in stereo and fiber optic light system), chaise lounge chairs, out door dining for eight persons, covered seating area off bar, beautiful air conditioned bathroom with step down shower with rain system shower head, a BBQ area complete with sink and copping board counter space, and more importantly the spectacular 270 degree view of the yachts in Simpson Bay lagoon, the hills of St. Maarten, down the beach and over to the island of Anguilla. This unit is the highest structure on the entire beach and offers 100% privacy for you and your guests. No other unit in the building has access to this rooftop area which is accessed by an interior stairway from the unit's living room. There is no better place to work on your tan, enjoy a cocktail in the hot tub while the sun sets or for hosting small parties. During New Years Eve, you can watch the fire works from multiple areas on the island. The unit itself is the best you will find on the island. The kitchen is a chef's dream with Viking and Miele appliances. The appointments are all luxurious from Temperpedic mattresses, Hotel Collection linens, towels and robes. If you want the best, there is really little choice.
