18 FIVE STAR REVIEWS ON PENTHOUSE OVERLOOKING CUPECOY BEACH FROM TWO BALCONIES

Cupecoy Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

We invite you to rent a week (or more) at our penthouse - Palme d'Or, on the Island of Sint Maarten/St. Martin. The island, known as the Friendly Island, has a lot to offer couples or families. The vista from the penthouse is enchanting with a 330 degree radius thanks to our two separate balconies. The full-on view of the Caribbean, Cupecoy Beach, the comings and going of the finest cruise ships in the world, the best Island sunsets and four Islands within the near distance are just the start of your relaxing vacation.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Elements of privacy or togetherness

The second bedroom is furnished with new Basset furniture including a king bed, dresser and two side stands. There is a TV in the bedroom also.

The bath by the queen bedroom can be 'locked out' to provide privacy for your guests in the room as there is also access from the main hall. This was just furnished with new handmade Teak furniture in December, 2011.

A powder room is adjacent to the sunroom. The sunroom is between the two balconies and again offers the full Caribbean view, along with a reading area and the main dining table should there be the occasional rain during dinner. A computer stand and printer are placed in a corner of the dining room, and free wireless Internet service is provided throughout the Penthouse. Sliding doors allow for a breeze whenever desired.

This condominium penthouse is greater than 1,750 square feet and along with the amenities already mentioned, it has free washer/dryer access, a kitchen complete with china, flatware, glassware and standard appliances. The great room has two settees and a queen size sofa bed, a side table and lamp along with a coffee table that matches one of the settees. There is a 42' HD Flat Screen TV with a DVD player also. A game table/breakfast table is also in this large area.

The art throughout the penthouse is excellent as are the rugs in the sunroom and the great room.

The balcony off the great room also offers two chaise lounges, side table and a dining table with four chairs. A second table and 4 chairs can be set up for a larger group. A new kettle grill is situated here as well. This is where you can share 'Sundowner' cocktails as you watch the sun set over Cupecoy. Although smoking is not permitted in any part of the Tower, these two balconies do address that desire.

As our property is on the Dutch side, the electrical systems are as we know them in the US and Canada. The currency is the Dutch Guilder which is pegged to the US dollar at $1.78 to $1.00; therefore, when you are in the market, although the pricing may seem 'steep,' it is likely in Gulders that will be converted at the register. The French side of the island is tied to the Euro, and that is presently $1.00 US to the Euro at $1.32. However, many restaurants offer dollar for euro parity when paying cash, keeping in mind that they may have 'tweaked' the menu pricing some to allow them to do that.

There is a new upscale market at Porto Cupecoy, just 1/8th of a mile from The Ocean Club with a number of enjoyable restaurants.

Enclosed parking is on the ground floor with an elevator to the penthouse.

The staff at the Ocean Club reflects the small, intimate quality of the Club. Cheryl and Noreen at the front desk are always accommodating with a smile, and our personal housekeeper, Mildred, will see to your every housekeeping need.

I am a portfolio manager for UBS Financial Services, Inc. and the creator and manager of The Lambda Strategy.

My partner, Phil Dunn, a former restaurateur, caterer and currently Phil teaches cooking classes in our home town of Lexington and provides duties as a chef for tours to Ireland, Italy and Great Britain. Phil is a professional chef who has been recognized for his catering Queen Elizabeth's two visits to Lexington, KY.

Spending time with our children and their spouses and our new Grandsons in California is always great, especially when we head to Sonoma and Napa. This travel, along with cruises, art exhibits, Broadway and opera keep us active.

We are 'phasing' into retirement in 2013, and the Penthouse is the realization of one of our goals.

As I update this on 9/29/13, I am in the Sunroom overlooking the Caribbean Sea and Cupecoy Beach where recent weather brought a beautiful, long and wide sandy beach ashore!

These past twelve months have brought us many fine guests to our Penthouse, enjoying the island and respectful of our island home.

Brian Tremain purchased this condo in 2002

We had owned three weeks at this resort in one of the beach front Villas, and felt that this was the time to 'lock in' the best location and unit in the resort.

I have been going to SXM since 1986 and Phil began joining me in 1994 and we are especially fond of the French side - the food - the ambience - the wine - the cheese and, of course, the beaches.

I forgot to give a star rating to my last review. Again: great location, amazing views! Swimmable beach. Nice sand. Private. Pool fun for kids! Definitely recommend.

Neglected to mention beautiful cave within swimming/rock climbing distance from main beach, also beautiful and adventuresome.

Overall prices on the island very reasonable. Gas <$5 a gallon when we were there. Groceries (compared to turks and caicos and barbados) very reasonable. Love the conversion on the dutch side. Recommend carrying cash on the french side bc they do sometimes honor 1 euro =$1 for cash.

We had initially booked another property in st. Maarten but on arrival to that property, we met the other group of ppl who had also booked the property. We had spoken to Brian (owner) when making our decision and actually managed to call him using skype phone from st. Maarten. By some fluke the penthouse was able to accomodate us, and Brian arranged for onsite credit card payment ... Absolutely amazing and saved our vacation. The beach was easy to get to, and beautiful. There were some naked male sunbathers (which my 3 year old is still talking about) but nonobtrusive. The pool had floaties to share for adults and children. The bar had a fantastic happy hour and food (wings and fries) for my husband and son who cannot eat wheat (mild allergy, nothing serious). Absolutely walking distance to the marche (5% coupon in the coupon book). We had dinner within walking sistance the first night at Basilico where they had a gluten free option and handmade pasta (for the rest of us). The veal scalopini was amazing. The nrxt night we had tapas at delights which was also amazing. Theres a brandnew blue mall across from the complex which we walked through. We did rent a minivan for a few days and went to mardigras at grand case and phillipsburg to do some shopping.... Maho has great restaurants but not recommended by staff to walk from the complex there late at night so we went with the car (5min).

Only downside was the broken elevator (went down 20 min before we got there) and which worked intermittently but inconsistently for the whole week. Of note many of the other guests at the complex had bren going there for years and had never experienced this issue. The staff were very accomodating, allowing us to keep our stroller in the office during business hours (9-5) so we didnt have to carry things up and down the stairs as often.

Penthouse was beautiful, amazing views of sunset from the 2 balconies and the breakfast room. AC worked. Towels were changed daily. We were a large group so used the dishwasher.
We were so lucky to book this place on such late notice. Indoor parking for penthouse guests!
Beach: waves r bigger here than other places (orient bay) but my husband and i r strong swimmers and loved it. And was coarse and beautiful. If u swim out from the right side of the beach, you can see the penthouse balcony.

Amazing vacation. Thanks Brian!

Owner's Response: Not only did the last minute arrangement work for Lorraine and her family, we were lucky to have them as guests for the week. It is important to us that the guests realize our little bit of paradise is as wonderful as the photos on the website depict it to be. Although Cupecoy Beach has always been known as clothing optional, usually that activity is along the beach north of the resort. I would say that over the more than sixty weeks that we have owned and stayed at The Ocean Club, probably no more 30 days have we seen nude sunbathers. Keep in mind though, should you wish to do so, it is your choice. An alternative nearby is Mullet Bay adjacent to the golf course.

wonderful vacation spot

We had a great time staying at this property. The condo was exactly as pictured, very comfortable and cozy. The property has a great pool with a little bar and restaurant next to it. They had daily drink specials and good basic food. Down a flight of steps and you are on the beach, which is usually very quiet. We have stayed here before in another unit, but the penthouse is by far the nicest place we have stayed on the island. The views from the balcony are so beautiful, we enjoyed sitting there in the morning having coffee and also in the evenings with a cocktail. I would recommend the penthouse to anyone looking for a low key, quiet place to stay while in St. Martin. Actually, the best day of our vacation was spent right by the pool with an occasional walk to the beach, with dinner at the restaurant, very relaxing…..can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: We were aware that May Lou was familiar with The Ocean Club and Cupecoy Beach, and we felt that her friends and family would be most happy enjoying our penthouse. According to her review, it is apparent that they were very pleased, which makes us happy as well since we enjoy sharing our "little bit of Caribbean paradise!"

Great Family Condo

We visited St. Maarten in June for the first time and had a blast. The condo was located in a great area near beautiful beaches, good restaurants, close to the airport and convenient access to the French side of the island which we loved. We were traveling with our two teenage children. The condo was set up perfectly with everything we needed giving us a home away from home experience. It was large enough for everyone to have privacy and even included underground parking and a very sweet housekeeper who came almost everyday. The view is truly amazing and is the stuff of dreams. We can hardly wait to return. Thanks to Brian for such a great experience.

Owner's Response: We are always appreciative of our guests who find those little special elements at our penthouse that make it all that it is. Our goal is to create the very environment that they can envision while looking at our photos. Cupecoy Beach, with its easy access to the French side, great restaurants within a short walk or easy drive, and all while enjoying the Sun and Surf along the Caribbean Sea.

Vacation in Paradise

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful condo! It was just as lovely as the pictures and the view is absolutely spectacular! The staff at The Ocean Club were very helpful and welcoming. We ate several meals at the bar and grill by the pool and the food was wonderful (especially the $8.00 breakfast). We wouldn't hesitate to recommend St. Maarten and this beautiful condo to friends and family who are looking for a place to vacation.

Owner's Response: We are always pleased when our guests find the penthouse just as enjoyable, accessible and beautiful as we have presented it to be.
The Bar and Grill recently changed ownership and it is great to hear that they are still offering the breakfast special. I hope they continue the Wednesday evening "All You Can Eat" Rib Special with sides for $12.00! You typically need reservations for that weekly event, and it is even more fabulous with the video of Jimmy Buffet and his band.
The Cupecoy beaches have enjoyed some additional sand over the past few weeks. Always good news to hear ~
