The condo is clean and well appointed with everything you need. Edgar, the owner was very accommodating and provided a BBQ and coffee maker replacement. He also had a wealth of information of the island, places to eat, grocery shop and sightsee. The condo is in the hills overlooking the cruise ship terminal and Philipsburh to the north and the ocean and St. Bart's to the south. Only disappointment was discovering no air conditioning upon arrival but the ocean breezes kept us cool.
Excellent dining in Philipsburg and the restaurants on the French side of the island are a delight.
Driving is an adventure, two lanes of traffic but the motor scooters and motorcycles use the small space between lanes of traffic. Scarey when someone suddenly appears beside the driver's window! Only problem is that there are few street signs to guide you.
All in all, an excellent place to stay.
And yes, the large structure on the top of the hill on the other side of the valley is a prison.
Nice view and lots of space
Great place to stay, nice view, and close to the centre of Philipsburg. A little bit windy but I can imagine very welcome during summertime... Cleaning could be a little bit better. A lot of sticky spots in the kitchen area.
Thank you so much for your kind comments. We are glad that your entire family had such a great vacation. Next time I will make sure the painter cleans up.
Till next time!!
Great location at an affordable price !
I was dreaming to have my coffee with such a view and from the first moment we arrived , this is what i did ! and it was simply great .
The condo has everything you need , although the road up there is a bit scarry as it is very steep. Renting a car is really mandatory not only to reach the condo but also to enjoy at maximum the holiday on this great island ! We were lucky to choose this destination for our winter holiday ( at home were -5 degree).
Thank you Edgar for the good condition of the condo.
Thank you so much for your stars and kind comments, Cristina . I am glad you had a great time and we look forward to having back in the future.

Edgar & Dessi
A spacious and modern condo with a superb view
Located atop a hill in Point Blanche overlooking the cruise ship terminal and the town of Philipsburg, this two-story condo offers everything we were looking for. It stands in a very quiet environment with a superb view and is located only a few minutes drive from the downtown activities and shops. Although we walked down and up this very steep hill to exercise on a regular basis, you definitely need a car to get around. If you like hiking along beautiful cliffs and uniques sceneries on footpaths that are not crowded, this is the perfect location for you.
In addition to being close to amenities and to the town core activities, the location of the condo facilitates traveling to all eastern and northern destinations on the island. With the inauguration of the new bridge off the airport (going around Simpson Bay), we also found travelling across town from the condo (going west) improved tremendously during our stay. So this location allows you to be close to the action, but at the same time benefit from a quiet environment when you come back home at the end of the day or the evening.
Edgar was a wonderful host who ensured all our needs were met and who provided great advice and recommendations on places to see and things to do during our one-month stay. We now consider him and the members of his family personal friends.
The amenities were well-kept and perfect for a family of four or for two couples to share, as each bedroom features an adjoining bathroom. We had family members join us during our stay and the condo provided ample space to accommodate four adults comfortably. As it is located atop a hill, air conditioning is not required (although one of the bedroom is equipped with it, we seldom used it). However, expect the breeze to be omnipresent on your balcony and you are likely to experience a few days with strong winds (a good way of beating the hot temperatures). Finally if you are dog lovers, you will adore Lady, Spotty, Moppy and Suzy who live just next door and are extremely well behaved.
In summary, I would recommend this condo without hesitation to any couple or family or four who would like to discover this beautiful island.
Many thanks for your great hospitality Edgar.
What a view!
Booked this condo pretty much last minute when I was forced to use some vacation time or lose it. Edgar promptly responded to my inquiry and everything was arranged via email and then PayPal. Edgar also referred me to a local rental car establishment and I got a rate that was much better than the larger corporate chains. When we arrived Edgar greeted us at the condo and gave us a few suggestions on sights to see and things to do, this being our first time to the island. I had an unexpected gout flare up in my toe and forgot my medicine for it at home. When I asked Edgar where the closest open pharmacy was at the late hour he got on his cell phone, called a pharmacist friend of his, and 40 minutes later the meds I needed were delivered right to the condo. Talk about service! The condo sits pretty much at the top of a hill on the southeast corner of the island, Point Blanche. The view really is breathtaking...the pictures don't do it justice. The property sits high enough on the hill that the winds coming off the ocean are constant and a VERY welcome relief on some of the warmer days. Overall it was an excellent experience and I plan on staying again on my next visit to St. Maarten!
Thank you so much for your stars and kind comments Dan. We are so pleased you enjoyed yourselves and agree that the location is at a perfect spot and hard to beat on the island of St. Maarten.
Thank again Till next time!!
This beautiful villa is situated high on top of the hill on the San Marcos side of Pointe Blanche just over the hill from Philipsburg and the new cruise ship terminal. Philipsburg is located close to the bottom of the hill and is within less than a five minute ride. The constant trade wind that keeps this condo cooled (along with A/C if needed) makes this location very desirable and the views from your main floor balcony are absolutely engulfing. This is also the perfect location for government or business access to the Philipsburg area.
