JusMarNa Penthouse is an elegant one-bedroom condominium located on the top floor of Building 12, suite 4B, at Porto Cupecoy, in Cupecoy, (Dutch) St. Maarten.

JusMarNa Penthouse was acquired and established as a one-bedroom condominium alternative or accompaniment to Chez SoColisa (VRBO 352757), a two-bedroom condominium located nearby at The Cliff at Cupecoy. JusMarNa Penthouse continues the best of design, decor, furnishings and technology that is the hallmark of Chez SoColisa. Like Chez SoColisa, it provides a high-quality vacation experience with reliable trustworthy service and a free car to enjoy during your stay. JusMarNa Penthouse is rented as a one-bedroom unit that comfortably sleeps four people by utilizing the king-size bed in the master bedroom and the comfortable queen size sofa bed in the living room.

Inside JusMarNa Penthouse you will experience the tranquility provided by the confluence of the majestic Simpson Bay Lagoon, the mountain range beyond and the nature preserve on French St. Martin that is literally outside of your window. It is located as close as you can get to French St. Martin while residing in Dutch St. Maarten.

About Fred J. Grigsby, Jr.

I retired in late 2006 following a 37-year career in human resource management. I retired in California from a company in the energy sector. Prior to that I had a long career with one company in a number of geographical locations including Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, Chicago and Cleveland.

The majority of the year I reside at the Villas of Shore Pointe, Cupecoy. Therefore, when you rent JusMarNa Penthouse the chances are very high that I will be on island and personally help get oriented to the property. I have engaged someone to provide meet and greet services for first time JusMarna Penthouse clients if I am unable to do so.

When I am not in St. Maarten I reside in Atlanta, Georgia and Washington, DC.

Fred J. Grigsby, Jr. purchased this condo in 2013

Why Fred J. Grigsby, Jr. chose St Maarten / Saint Martin

I bought some timeshare weeks at the Sapphire Beach Resort and therefore started coming to St. Maarten annually for a couple of weeks. I feel in love with St. Maarten and the convenience of Cupecoy.

Next I purchased a two-bedroom condo at The Cliff at Cupecoy intended as my SXM retirement home. In 2008 I moved to a villa at Shore Pointe and began to market Chez SoColisa as a one or two–bedroom rental property. Due to the success we have had promoting Chez SoColisa the need for a complimentary one-bedroom property became obvious.

We searched high-end condo properties in hoping to find a very nice one-bedroom to compliment Chez SoColisa. This search included a one-bedroom at The Cliff and three one-bedroom condos available at Porto Cupecoy. JusMarNa Penthouse simply put was the best property available on the market. It like all of the Porto Cupecoy condos has been finished with high-end cabinetry, appliances and other appointments. Located at the end of Porto Cupecoy, JusMarNa Penthouse provides the tranquility provided by the confluence of the majestic Simpson Bay Lagoon, the mountain range beyond and the French side nature preserve. Many condos at Porto Cupecoy enjoy the beauty of the Marina and its vessels but few enjoy the view offered by JusMarNa Penthouse.

What makes this condo unique

Porto Cupecoy is a unique development in St. Maarten with its Mediterranean inspired design. The plaza surrounded by restaurants and unique boutiques promotes a lively environment with consistent family oriented activities. Security was clearly a priority in the design of Porto Cupecoy. Indeed you can’t walk or drive to JusMarna Penthouse without a security escort or without possessing a remote control to drive into the well lighted secured garage or a key fob to walk through secured gates. The covered garage parking space that is reserved for JusMarNa Penthouse residents is only four spaces removed from the elevator that will take you up to JusMarNa Penthouse.

Porto Cupecoy provides a state-of-the-art air-conditioned fitness center overlooking the outdoor pool available for your use at your discretion. These wonderful facilities and the tennis courts are reserved for the exclusive use of Porto Cupecoy residents and guests.

I love the convenience to a variety of beaches within walking or short driving distances on both the Dutch and French side of the island. This includes both traditional beaches and clothing optional beaches.

I love the variety of excellent restaurants surrounding the plaza, down the street and a couple of minutes away by car in Cupecoy and Maho.

Lastly, JusMarNa Penthouse is very competitively priced against other high-end one-bedroom one & one-half bathroom options available in SXM. Additional, it includes the use of a car during your stay. Your only obligation is to replace the fuel you used. JusMarNa Penthouse has been designed to comfortably sleep 4 with no “up-charge” for the 3rd and 4th persons.

FANTASTIC! I HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RENTAL!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is fantastic! The condo is beautiful and beautifully furnished. The view is spectacular from both the balcony and the condo. It was wonderful to sit on the balcony and have a morning coffee and see the beautiful bay and mountains. The host is very attentive and has made the condo very visitor friendly. He has provided a vonage phone for free long distance calls to the States, an island cell phone for your use as well as included a car. The car is new. It was wonderful to not have to worry about booking a rental car on the island as I had heard some of the companys were very unreliable. The host sent us information about the activities taking place in the complex on the dates of our stay as well as responded to all our inquiries during the booking process immediately. The location is phenomenal with all you could ask for right within the complex: pool, tennis courts, gym and a plaza in the complex with a number of very good restaurants and shops if you do not want to venture out, but also conventiently situated to go sight seeing all around the island. There is a very nice shopping mall within a 2 minute walk from the complex. I cannot say enought good things about this rental. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this property.

Perfection Personified!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited St. Martin in September 2014 and stumbled across Porto Cupecoy. I told him, "this is where we are staying next year." So I got on VBRO and found this amazing condo JusMarNa. This condo is simply stunning and the owner has thought of everything to make this an enjoyable experience. The pictures are true to the interior of the condo and the furnishings, dishes, linens etc. are top notch. The decor and supplies have been carefully thought out by the owner. Porto Cupecoy itself is a gorgeous area and this condo overlooks the beautiful marina area. The fact that the owner provides a car with this condo is extremely helpful and generous. The property manager is very professional and informative and made arriving and departure a breeze.

We have stayed at many VBRO properties and this unit by far exceeds all of the other properties. I am a real estate broker and see a lot of properties and I can assure you a vacation at this condo will be one of your best experiences to date!

A Wonderful Place to Call Our Temporary Home

  • 5 of 5

For our seventh trip to St. Maarten in 2015, we chose to stay at JusMarNa, Fred's penthouse at Porto Cupecoy after he so graciously met with us in the Plaza at Porto Cupecoy on the day of our departure while on our last vacation in 2014. Fred's penthouse unit is everything as stated in the condo description and so much more. Photographs do not accurately reflect the amazing views of the lagoon, the lowlands, the French hills, to Marigot and beyond. We enjoyed the fireworks in Marigot on Bastille Day from the comfort of JusMarNa. The accommodations were incredibly spacious for a one bedroom unit, quite comfortable, and immaculately clean. The housekeeper visited twice during our 11 day stay washing the bedding and tidying up a bit. There are plenty of beach towels, wash cloths, bath towels, etc. and there were even a couple of cooler bags for the beach as well as a beach umbrella which proved to be much needed on the beaches such a Plum, Long, and Cupecoy. Fred has added some beautiful new artwork not shown in the pictures of the unit. The art features the paintings of a local artist and are quite striking. Additionally, Fred has a new car included with the rental of his unit which made getting around the island more pleasurable. Fred met us in the plaza on the day of our arrival and personally introduced us to his property taking the time to explain all of the features of his unit. Fred was an extremely gracious host who kept in contact with us via e-mail throughout our stay. My husband and I would not hesitate to stay at JusMarNa anytime we need a one bedroom unit. It was a lovely experience from beginning to end!

Best yet! A Class Act!

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in SXM for years and were ready for a change of pace. We found it and more at JusMarNa at Porto Cupecoy. Every detail was taken care of. For starters.. the use of a car exclusively for us with an assigned parking space. Stunning décor, appliances and furnishings. 24/7 security. Wifi. QUIET and peaceful. Just beautiful. Fred was always just a phone call away. This was just a spectacular vacation for us and yes, we will be back. We really were able to relax at this beautiful villa.

JusMarNa -- Amazing Stay

We have been vacationing to St Maarten for over 20 years and this year we found a beautiful property at JusMarNa penthouse at Porto Cupecoy.

It is a spectacular location, the appliances, furniture and decorating was lovely and certainly makes you feel like you are at home...very comfortable. The sound system,wifi, and telephones and car was a bonus. Beautiful views and easy access to shopping and beaches nearby. Our vacation experience this year was special as we celebrated our 40th Anniversary and we are looking forward to returning next year. Hopefully we will get to meet you Fred!!! Thanks for all your assistance while we were there. ...Cheers, Brian & Ruth

A Month in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a month on island and stayed at JusMarNa. Fred has a well-maintained penthouse unit which was always quiet and a great home after a day's activities. We enjoyed walking the grounds and marina at Porto Cupecoy. Everything described in the earlier reviews is reliable. We had a maintenance issue arise during our stay and both Fred and Porto Cupecoy were very prompt in quickly addressing the issue. We were totally pleased with our stay and have already scheduled our time in 2016.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to submit your review. We much appreciated your immediate notification of the maintenance issue so it could be immediately addressed. JusMarNa Penthouse is located at the back of Porto Cupecoy so it is away from the noise associated with the businesses and entertainment in the courtyard. It is a short walk to and from the activities centered in the courtyard. We look forward to your return in 2016.
