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.

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 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.

Excellent condo

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Roy's Princess Heights condo for a week in March when my wife had a conference at the Westin which is a short walk down the hill from the condo. This worked out great for us. The condo was quiet, clean, and comfortable and the staff was excellent. The kitchen was fine and we cooked a number of meals there. The downside is we had to drive everywhere except for the Westin and the waters at Dawn Beach were too rough to swim in. Several people said that it is not calm very often there. A highlight during our trip was going to Pinell Island where the swimming and snorkeling was great. Also, be aware that there are no elevators at Princess Heights and there are 3 flights of stairs to get to the condo from the parking lot.

Great location, great accommodation, great stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely visit. Roy was fabulous providing very useful information prior to arriving. The condo is well equipped and beautiful with gorgeous patio vistas overlooking the ocean at Dawn beach. the location was great; just a short drive to great beaches and locations on the NE and NW sides of the island. All in all a wonderful experience that we would recommend for an island get away!

Terrific location with incredible view

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time on the Island. Roy was very helpful throughout the booking process and provided valuable information about the Island and things to do. The views from the unit are spectacular and remember to bring sunglasses - you'll need them each morning to watch the sunrise while you sip your coffee. The unit is large and clean and the building overall is very quiet. The pool is very nice and also has a great view of the ocean. The beach is a short walk and the area is also generally quiet. Close by are some great restaurant options - we love The Big Fish. Rent a car so you can explore the Island: lots of great beaches, restaurants and things to do. We will definitely be back!
