Oyster Pond Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Start each day with stunning views of St Bart’s and gentle ocean waves from the comfort of your own suite with all the amenities of this luxury boutique condo hotel. Travel magazines and web sites have rated this condo hotel as one of the top experiences on the island.

Situated on the east side of the island, minutes away from the French border, you will be spoilt by the convenience of local beaches and amenities. Dawn beach, providing the shade of palm trees and glorious white sand is a short walk, or drive down the hill. Numerous other nearby beaches on the Dutch and French side of the island, which include Orient Bay, Le Galion, Friars Bay, Baie Rouge, are very accessible by car and equally stunning. Maho Beach provides a unique experience of low flying planes passing directly overhead on approach to Princess Juliana International Airport.

Unit 503 is furnished with the discerning vacation traveler in mind. This one bedroom luxury suite has a fully furnished living area, bedroom and kitchen. The bedroom suite has a king size pillow top mattress, light blocking drapes and a flat screen TV. An en-suite bathroom has a jetted tub and shower. The living room is designed in a warm neutral palate with a Caribbean touch. A large flat screen TV with Blu-ray DVD and an IPod docking sound system provides all the entertainment you may need. The queen size pull out sleeper sofa has an eco therapeutic mattress. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, including a coffee maker and blender (essential for Island Piña coladas). The condo has marble floors throughout, a large terracotta tiled balcony including a bistro table and chairs, and two sun loungers. The balcony can be accessed from the bedroom and the living room.

The island boasts many world class restaurants. Grand Case, on the French side, is the gastronomique capital of the island. Locally, you can head down to Oyster Pond and enjoy Big Fish, Daniels by the Sea, Captain Oliver’s, or join some of the boating folk who have moored for a few drinks and dinner at Dinghy Dock.

Alternatively, you can relax on your own large covered balcony, enjoy the breeze of the trade winds and the singing of the tree frogs and fix something on the BBQ located on the 4th floor at your own leisure.

In addition to all the conveniences such as luxury linens, hair dryer, in room safe, iron, internet, your friendly hotel staff will be pleased to assist you with any of your other needs or requirements during your stay, including a Cell Phone for rental if needed.

About The Owner

We bought our condo in 2010 after we enjoyed a totally stress free vacation there. We both work, live the vida loca and travel frequently on business. Having the comfort of a full kitchen, living area and bedroom not to mention a covered balcony with great views offered us the indulgence of choice and complete relaxation. We love to go out to the great restaurants - we also enjoy the odd evening of staying home, opening some French wine and enjoying a relaxing barbeque.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose St Maarten / Saint Martin

We chose St Martin for a number of reasons. The weather is warm all year around. It is served by the most modern airport in the Caribbean. Direct flights come in from the United States, France and Holland on a regular basis. It’s very easy to get around the Island The people are friendly and helpful. The flavour of the island is a unique combination of Caribbean charm and European delight. Half the island is Dutch and the other half French. Everyone speaks English. US dollars are accepted everywhere or you can use Euros or NAF. There are numerous restaurants – some just a few minutes away from our Condo. Grand Case is certainly well worth the trip.

What makes this condo unique

All the beaches have a different and unique charm. Dawn Beach is our favourite. It is quiet, relaxing and all the amenities of the Westin right there for your convenience. You can snorkel, or pull your sun lounger under a palm tree and relax. Other guests have enjoyed Orient beach. Five minutes away by car it offers jet skis, para-sailing and many other water sports. Also, Baie Rouge is great fun if you enjoy body surfing to mention a few.

Guestbook comments from the owner

503 is a great condo,a great balcony; blackout drapes were a huge plus. Mr. Busbys by day and Daniels By The Sea after 6pm are excellent places to eat and/or happy hour at Dawn Beach The Los Los food at The Sky's The Limit in Grand Case is delicious and the price is very reasonable.

Love the place would go back in a heart beat

  • 5 of 5

We've been to St. Martin several times staying mostly at resort properties which meant small rooms and not very comfortable. This was by far the most enjoyable place we stayed, great view, lots of room and excellent condition. You won't be disappointed!!!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

After a long day of travel we were pleasantly surprised and relieved to see that the condo was so nice. It was comfortable and the view is the best! Loved waking up to the sunrise and the water and the sounds of the birds and having coffee on the balcony every morning! It s very quiet and not located in all the tourist spots. We were very happy and would definitely rent here again! Thank you

comfortable, great view, nice owner, good location.

  • 3 of 5

We stayed one month at this condo and had a wonderful time. I would note to anyone with limited abilities that it is up two flights of stairs with no elevator. We knew that before booking but it seems not clearly advertised and would be terrible for someone to book it and arrive to find that as a surprise, if they were not able. For us it was great exercise. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The condo was comfortable, bed was SUPER, view outstanding, and pool very good too. It is not close walking distance to anything because it is such a hilly steep area but we loved the location because it was more quiet than near airport, and great to be near French border. With so much time, we did a lot of fun exploring on both Dutch and French sides, then loved coming back to our serene condo. However some nights were loud and unpleasant when the Westin nearby had their beach parties - we could not sleep when the loud "music" rocked our place. The condo staff were very friendly and nice but not really very helpful on most things. Some requests were ignored or just dropped. The condo lacked kitchen pots and pans and things, that one needs when staying that long and doing actual cooking there. It was also very short on towels, we had to go buy some to supplement. Also it would have been nice to have a throw blanket. AC was great. Overall would recommend. I do not think it is accurate to describe it as a luxury type of accommodation but it was nice. St Martin has a lot to see and do, beautiful beaches and lovely native people. We would highly recommend Grand Case area and Orient beach.

Wonderful stay at Princess Hights condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family travelled to St Martin and stayed at the Princess Hights apartment from Feb 2 to Feb 12. What a great vacation!

Booking this unit was a pleasant experience. Roy has been prompt in his replies and he gave us plenty of tips before the vacation. The staff at Princess Hights was very helpful and always nice.

The one bedroom apartment was well maintained, clean and the kitchen was well equipped. The views from the balcony were amazing. It was hard to leave! Waking up each day with that view was a treat! Our daughter started crying on our last day that she didn't want to leave.

The island is beautiful. Plenty of beaches and restaurants. We did not have one bad experience. We tried various restaurants and the culinary experience we had on this island was unique.

Our favourite beach was Anse Marcel and our favourite restaurant was at L'Auberge Gourmande in Grand Case.

All in all a great vacation. We would definitely come back!!

Truly Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue and has been on my " to do " list for months. Princess Heights and renting from Roy were so wonderful, that I knew I needed to write! The condo is lovely and the kitchen is well stocked. Everything is clean and neat. The bed was quite comfy and having the second 1/2 bath was great when we were getting ready to go out for the evening. The balcony is large and airy, well furnished, and has a nice view. We spent several evenings enjoying our dinner and wine there. During one of those nights, we used the laundry room to wash our beach and bath towels, so the towel issue was no big deal for us. Roy ( the owner) was very professional and easy to work with. He responded promptly to my emails and addressed my many questions. I would highly recommend this rental property and would rent here again!!
