About the property

2 bedrooms one Bath Condo in an exclusive quiet neighborhhod set on the ocean

The Waves is a beautiful 2 bedroom condo set directly at the ocean's edge in a private, secure residential neighborhood known as Guana Bay.

This condo has genuine cararra marble floors and bathroom walls.The all glass oceanfront window wall makes the experience of this condo like no others in Guana Bay or, for that matter, Sint Maarten.

Both Bedrooms offer queen beds. One bedroom offers unobstructed ocean views. You can fall asleep to the moonlit ocean and awake to a spectacular sunrise every day.

As you enter The Waves, the kitchen and dining area are to your left. The living room is in front, along with the most amazing view of the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. You feel like you are actually in the water on a ship; without the rocking!

The door off of the dining area provides access to the one queen bedroom. This bedroom has direct access to the marble clad bathroom with shower. There is a 2nd door from this bathroom that provides access to the glass enclosed master queen bedroom. This bedroom is also accessesd from the livingroom.

Off of the living room is a private patio with a bronze swordfish sculpture and classic concrete baluster railings that both frame your personal panorama of the windblown waves and St. Barths in the distance.

For those of you that like to have a quiet place to retreat to but still be only 10 minutes away from all of the shopping, dining and entertainment that the capital city of Philipsburg has to offer, The Waves is a great choice.

There really is no other quality oceanfront 2 bedroom condo in all of Sint Maarten that offers what The Waves does considering location and price.

For air arrangements, fly into Princess Juliana Airport, Sint Maarten. You will want to rent a car at the airport. The Waves is a 20 minute drive.

For larger groups, The Waves can be rented along with Villa Leone Sint Maarten; Homeaway listing #173339 ,

to accommodate up to 6 more guests.

If you are staying for a week, the following are my recommendations for a few activities:


Have breakfast at Chesterfield's in Philipsburg; a 10 minute drive. This restaurant is set directly on Bobby's Marina with fantastic water views. After breakfast, do a loop of the island to get a feel for what you may be interested in seeing during your stay. I recommend stops at Friar's Bay Beach as well as Marigot during your island loop. An afternoon stop at The Sunset Beach Bar near the airport is also nice. You can watch the large jumbo jets land just feet in front of you!

You will be tired after your long day circling the island, so, go back to The Waves for cocktails on your oceanfront patio.


After breakfast on the oceanfront patio, take a walk next door to explore Gibbs Bay Beach and then cross back by The Waves and walk down to Guana Bay Beach. There is a trail head at the end of Guana Bay Beach that will take you along the oceanfront into Philipsburg. If you are hikers, this would be a great way to spend the morning.

At night, a drive to Simpson Bay for dinner at Lee's and after for karaoke at Toppers could be fun.


If you like to snorkel, on day 1 or 2, make a reservation on one of the catamarans that go out of Bobby's Marina. Breakfast at Chesterfield's again. It's right near where the boats leave from Bobby's Marina.They have all day sails that have open bar, lunch and snorkeling at two or three spots. A great day!

At night, if you have any energy left, dinner and drinks at the Greenhouse; also near Bobby's Marina, is a good choice.


After breakfast on the patio, drive into Phiipsburg, park at the lot across from Windward Islands Bank and spend the morning walking along Front Street shopping and along the waterfront Boardwalk. The shopping for jewelry and electronics is very fun and can result in a great deal for the educated consumer. You can buy two beers and a Cuban cigar for $3 from the street vendors. You can rent Segways and ride along the Boardwak. One stop that I recommend is the Guavaberry store. Their shakes are delicious and thirst quenching. For lunch, try Kangaroo Court. Many local business owners eat here for lunch. Sit in the back by the huge old tree. Very nice setting!

At night, try Bamboo Bernies in Maho if you like sushi. Be sure to make a reservation though. They are always packed! After dinner, nearby is Soprano's piano bar; always a fun time.


One day on the French Side can be a nice experience.

In the morning, you can drive to Marigot, park and walk around the town. There is a nice hilltop fort to visit.

Be prepared to pay for everything in Euros on this side of the island. You can even hop on the ferry and go to Anguilla; a 20 minute ferry ride. There are nice beaches there and you can chalk off another island.

At night, continue on to Grand Case. This is a small town on the French Side that is home to a few exquisite French restaurants. Dinner can be pricey but the experience can be unforgettable!


A visit to Orient Beach on the French Side is a possibility for today. You can turn right at where the road from Guana Bay intersects the main road and continue north to Orient Beach. The beach is divided into nude and bathing suits required. The decision is yours!

For your last dinner in Sint Maarten, I recommend combining your new knowledge of the island with a search in Tripadvisor and trying a new place in Philpsburg, Simpson Bay or Maho. You can then return to your favorite nightspot to finish off your week on this very fun island.

About Frank Leone

I am a retired Civil Engineer from Pennsylvania.

Owner's Response: Hello Dee, Happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and happy, as always, to have you back at The Waves. We appreciate your returning to The Waves and always try to add a few new things each year to make your stay more enjoyable. The little portable Bluetooth speaker is a favorite of mine when I stay at The Waves. I just bought that at Music Man in Philipsburg on my last visit. It has amazingly big sound for a box that fits in the palm of your hand. The wifi booster was also added at the same time. I never had wifi in the bedroom until I just added that. Hopefully, that worked well for you. I'll have a couple new additions waiting for you next year! Hope to see you back soon! Ciao, Frank

Great, relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. We spent most days traveling around the island, shopping and hitting the beaches. In the evening it was great to come back to a more private area and listen to the waves crashing on the rocks. Extremely relaxing.

Great Getaway Right on the Water

  • 5 of 5

This is the first condo we have stayed which was directly on the water and I'm hooked. The sound of the waves ( they can be loud) was so calming.....could sit on the deck for hours and was lulled asleep every night. We never used the pool as the beach was well within easy walking distance. The beach was never crowded, maybe 10 people at the most. The condo is away from all the hustle and bustle but it doesn't take any time to get to restaurants, shopping or sightseeing. The Waves had just what we were looking for, solitude but not isolated.

Owner's Response: Hello Phyllis, I feel exactly the same way about The Waves! The Waves is the closest residence to the ocean in all of Guana Bay. As you have experienced, it's practically like being in a yacht in the ocean but without all the rocking. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your kind comments. We hope to see you back soon. Ciao, Frank

Lovely, secluded and restful

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for crowds, nightlife and action - this is not the place for you. But if you are seeking a quiet lovely place where you have choice of two beaches all to yourself and a wonderful swimming pool just steps from your front door, if you enjoy the sound of waves crushing on the beach and love the feel of the ocean breeze blowing through you hair then don't think twice, sign up today to stay at "The Waves". We couldn't have been more delighted with our stay. The place is very clean and offers every amenity you will need for the meals and lots of extras like beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels and even an ice chest. We really enjoyed eating our meals on the secluded patio and very much appreciated Frank's quick response to any inquiries. As secluded as "The Waves" is you just short drive away from any tourist attraction and many fine restaurants on the island. We very much enjoyed our stay and would happily return again.

Owner's Response: Hello Phyllis, I feel the same way about The Waves, as I stay there often. I feel it's like staying on a private yacht without the rocking and seasickness. The solitude and peaceful feeling of the area is what drew me to Guana Bay 14 years ago. Even though there are a few more homes around, the peaceful nature and calm character of the area has never been compromised. Thank you for sharing your experience at the Waves. We hope to see you back soon. Thanks again for staying at The Waves. Ciao, Frank

Breathtaking ocean side villa

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely beautiful location right by the ocean side. The glass windows gave the ambience of being on a yacht on the ocean with beautiful views of the sunrise every morning.

The location itself is about 25 minutes from the airport but this is a perfect getaway for those wishing to get away from the crowded beaches and resorts on Simpson bay and closer to town. It is just 10 minutes from Phillipsburg which is where the ships dock and there is a wide variety of restaturants. The view on the drive to and from the location makes up for any time spent!

There are two absolutely beautiful, pristine and quiet beaches just 3 minutes walk from the villa- alternately one could simply relax on the balcony watching and listening to the ocean.

The owner Frank was extremely responsive to messages and sent a detailed welcome letter of activities which was very helpful

The island is truly friendly with the staff Dalia and Lynn embodying that

Overall it is a perfect island getaway in an absolutely beautiful and exclusive location!

A Perfect Place; the best of Guana Bay

  • 5 of 5

Villa Leone is a beautiful unit in the Guana Bay Villas. The unit sits right at the waterfront. We chose to stay on the first floor, "The Waves" . With the drapes open, we could wake to see the ocean, and go to sleep in the moonlight. The villa looks exactly as the pictures portray. It is bright, immaculate, and has all the amenities one could desire. The queen beds were new, sporting the softest of sheets and a cozy comforter. The unit had plenty of towels and the kitchen had everything we required. We chose to grill one evening, and dine on the patio by moonlight. Very romantic! The area is quiet and secluded. This is not the typical hotel/resort atmosphere. If you are looking for crowds you won't find it here. But, if you like privacy, and don't like to share your space with a huge crowd, you will love this villa. The pool is clean and well-maintained. And, the beach-access is just a short walk. You must have a car to access the area, and it is best to shop on your way in. The villa is a short ride to Phillipsburg, where you can walk along the "boardwalk" and enjoy local restaurants, shopping and the beach. For a lavish treat, take a ride to Pinelle Island, where you will find a beautiful beach, crystal clear water, and the best spiny lobster, as you dine right at the water!! Yummy. And, you may want to stop in at Topper's in Simpson Bay for a casual meal and lots of fun at karaoke. This was a fifth trip to St. Maarten, and the villa offered a different perspective to staying in a resort. We so enjoyed this trip, and look forward to next year.
