About Nancy Gulbrandsen

I've been traveling to the beautiful island of St. Maarten since 1982. I owned and handled vacation rentals for two beachfront villas during the 1990's.

Nancy Gulbrandsen purchased this condo in 2011

Why Nancy Gulbrandsen chose Simpson Bay

I've been visiting the beautiful island of Sint Maarten/St. Martin since 1981 and it remains my favorite of all the Caribbean Islands. I've seen A LOT of changes during those 30 years!

I owned 2 villas just down the beach from Las Arenas during the 1990's and slowly developed a year round vacation rental business which I sold in 2000. Now that my kids are almost grown I decided it was time to spend some more time on this wonderful island and found this special gem 'Paradise Found'.

I visited 'Paradise Found' last January while on vacation and fell in love with the stunning property of Las Arenas, the magnificent beachfront location and stunning residence. It is tucked away on picturesque Simpson Bay Beach, a two mile, white sand swimmable beach which most people have no access to unless they are staying there.

What makes this condo unique

Location, Location, Location!

Paradise Found at Las Arenas in Dutch St. Maarten is situated on a stunning stretch of uncrowded Simpson Bay Beach. Close to everything, yet tucked away from the masses, our fully equipped home away from home is, indeed, Paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nancy, we had a wonderful time in St. Maarten. Your condo was everything we had hoped for. Waking up every morning to that view is something we will not forget...........thank you and hope to go back one day!

Everything we hoped it would be

  • 5 of 5
Thank you, Nancy, for allowing us to stay at Paradise Found. It's even more beautiful than in the pictures. We stayed with our three children and had the most incredible time. While we did spend time at Las Arenas swimming in Simpson Bay (which is one of our favorite beaches on the island) and in the complex pool, we also rented a car and spent most days out and about. Coming back to Paradise Found at the end of the day, opening the front door and walking straight into that amazing, amazing view, really just completed the total perfect package. At the end of the FIRST day, the five of is agreed: " Oh yeah. We're coming back next year." That said, we thank you again, and look forward to our return next July. The "slow season" on St. Martin suits us well, and we can't wait to come back. Thanks again.

An awesome Condo, just beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
Sometimes when you book a reservation online you never know what to expect when you arrive. Nancy's condo was every bit as beautiful as the pictures and more! Very neat and clean, modern appliances, comfortable bed, bathroom's were awesome. The view from the condo was incredible overlooking Simpson Bay. The beach in front of the condo was very nice, and there are a couple of beach restaurants that are a 5 minute walk. It also is in a very convenient location. We felt very secure also, a gated parking area and security guard on duty. Do not hesitate to rent this condo! I can't imagine any property being any better than this. My wife and I can't wait to come back in 2014. Nancy was very helpful with any questions we had for her. Thanks Nancy!

Paradise Found is just that! The Absolute Best Villa you can choose to stay in!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time staying at Paradise Found and it was even better than the first time! Everything you could possibly want is already here for you. There were 2 couples on our trip and having a 2 bedroom ensuite villa was just perfect for everyone. The location is perfect. You'll certainly have it easier getting around the island with a rental car; however, restaurants and grocery stores are within walking distance. The beach is beautiful and never crowded! If you want to hang out in the pool, you can watch the cruise ships go by and the planes take off and land. There's no other place we would stay on the island!

A perfect girls getaway

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at the condo for ten days and enjoyed every minute. The view is spectacular and Nancy provides everything you need to make you feel at home. Having a car is a must if you want to explore the Island but if you want to venture out by foot there are some great restaurants close by, grocery stores , pharmacy. If eating out for dinner is what you're planning I would try Pineapple Pete's and Lee's Bar and Grill. The chicken and ribs are amazing! Izi's was also very good for the Italian food lovers. Liquor is very inexpensive compared to the prices in Canada so we definitely took advantage. One night we had take out from Lee's and had it at the condo with a bottle of champagne. "Don't knock it till you try it". All in all it was a fantastic vacation. Thank you Nancy for letting us have your little piece of paradise for ten wonderful days. Too Constance who always kept the condo beautiful to come home too. It was our fifty and fabulous girls trip and we will always remember it. I will definitely go back. Thank you again Nancy.

Honeymoon at Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5
The condo itself is beautiful and very well maintained. Simpson Bay is a very quiet beach with a beautiful view. The airport is close by but does not create a problem...we hardly noticed the airplanes landing or taking off. We were glad that Las Arenas had a security guard because the surrounding area is rundown aside from the beachfront properties. We had not read this in any of the reviews before arriving at Simpson Bay so we were a little taken by surprise. That being said, we felt safe and loved spending time on the balcony each evening. The kitchen is well stocked, and we enjoyed staying in some nights and cooking our own meals. Constance, the housekeeper, is very nice and does a great job so tip her well! We loved the opportunity to stay in Paradise Found.

WOW! :)

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I just got back from our 8-day stay at Nancy's unbelievable condo, and it truly was an unforgettable experience. The condo has a wrap-around balcony with two lounge chairs, overlooking a pool down below which is just a few steps from the beach. The view is unlike anything we've ever experienced...it looked like a painting.

Nancy equipped us with everything we needed to hit the ground running in St. Maarten! And when we got back from activities ranging from zip-lining, to parasailing, to horseback riding in the ocean...the cleaning service (Constance & team) ensured the condo was kept tidy for us...they were extremely friendly!

I can only hope that my future rentals through VRBO are half as incredible as the experience that Nancy helped provide for my girlfriend and I. You will truly feel at home in paradise.

Highly recommend, 5 stars!!! :)
