Maho Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms ~ 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6) ALL 30 FIVE STAR REVIEWS *****

As of October 23rd there are only thirteen (11) available weeks now through next May. Check them out and compute the discounted rate ~ for example, the 2017 Winter High Season Saturday to Saturday seven night rate is $2,975, and after the discount the rate is only $2,380! We believe you will agree that the cost shared with another couple makes our penthouse a great value for your vacation base on Sint Maarten / St. Martin!

We invite you to rent a week (or more) at our penthouse - Palme d'Or (Golden Palm,) on the Island of Sint Maarten/St. Martin. We accept bookings on a Saturday to Saturday basis with a seven night minimum. The island, known as the Friendly Island, has a lot to offer couples or families. The vista from the penthouse is enchanting with a 330 degree radius thanks to our two separate balconies. The full-on view of the Caribbean, Cupecoy Beach, the comings and going of the finest cruise ships in the world, the best Island sunsets and four Islands within the near distance are just the start of your relaxing vacation. Please check out our "27 FIVE STAR ***** Reviews," as they will give you an idea of how relaxing our guests find the penthouse.


Elements of privacy or togetherness

The Master Bedroom Suite consists of a Basset furniture including a king bed along with a large dresser and two side tables and lamps. The TV has a built-in DVD player as well. Also, there is a full bathroom with two vanities recently fitted with new faucet sets. It has its own balcony known as the Sunrise Balcony overlooking the resort pool, Coconut Palms and back toward the French side and the lagoon.

The second bedroom is furnished with new Basset furniture including a king bed, dresser and two side stands with handmade lamps.. There is a TV in the bedroom also.

The bath by the queen bedroom can be 'locked out' to provide privacy for your guests in the room as there is also access from the main hall. This was just furnished with new handmade Teak furniture since the winter of 2014. The bathroom also was recently fitted with new faucet sets.

A powder room is adjacent to the sunroom. The sunroom is between the two balconies and again offers the full Caribbean view, along with a reading area and the main dining table should there be the occasional rain during dinner. A computer stand and printer are placed in a corner of the dining room, and free wireless Internet service is provided throughout the Penthouse. Sliding doors allow for a breeze whenever desired.

This condominium penthouse is greater than 1,550 square feet and along with the amenities already mentioned, it has washer/dryer access, a kitchen complete with china, flatware, glassware and standard appliances. The great room has two settees and a queen size sofa bed, a side table and lamp along with a coffee table that matches one of the settees. There is a 42' HD Flat Screen TV with cable and a DVD player. A game table/breakfast table is also in this large area.

The art throughout the penthouse is excellent with local artists reflecting the feel and charm of the Island.

The balcony off the great room also offers three chaise lounges, side table, a dining table with four chairs and another with two. A kettle grill is situated here as well. This is where you can share 'Sundowner' cocktails as you watch the Sun set over the Caribbean along the Cliffs of Cupecoy. Although smoking is not permitted in any part of the Tower, these two balconies do address that desire.

As our property is on the Dutch side, the electrical systems are as we know them in the US and Canada. The currency is the Dutch Guilder which is pegged to the US dollar at $1.78 to $1.00; therefore, when you are in the market, although the pricing may seem 'steep,' it is likely in Gulders "NAF" that will be converted at the register. The French side of the island is tied to the Euro, and that is presently $1.00 US to the Euro at $1.07 (as of 11/15/16,) the best it has been for US travelers in more than ten years! However, many restaurants offer US Dollar for Euro parity when paying cash, keeping in mind that they may have 'tweaked' the menu pricing some to allow them to do that.

There is an upscale market at Porto Cupecoy, just 1/8th of a mile from The Ocean Club with a number of enjoyable restaurants. Our latest discovery is the Simply Market by the small Lagoon Bridge in Marigot. It is offering a true 1USD = 1 Euro and the wines, cheeses, meats, rotisserie chicken, pates` are all exceptional, both in price and quality. We suggest that you go pass the airport to the new Lagoon Bridge then cross over and take the round-about leading you left to the French side. As you enter into Marigot, take the first round-about left and follow that road, which leads you to a left turn only. From there proceed two short blocks, then left. Passing the cemetery on the right, proceed through that round-about and the Simply Market will be on your right just before the small Lagoon Bridge.

Assigned enclosed parking is on the ground floor with an elevator to the penthouse.

The staff at the Ocean Club reflects the small, intimate quality of the Club. Cheryl and Noreen at the front desk are always accommodating with a smile, and our personal housekeeper, Mildred, will see to your every housekeeping need.

About Brian Tremain

I am a portfolio manager for UBS Financial Services, Inc. and the creator and manager of The Lambda Strategy.

My husband, Phil Dunn, a former restaurateur, caterer and is currently teaching cooking classes in Lexington. Phil also serves as the chef for tours to Ireland, Italy, Germany, Austria and Great Britain. Phil is a professional chef who has been recognized for his catering Queen Elizabeth's two visits to Lexington, KY.

Spending time with our children and their spouses and our three grandsons in Ohio is always great since they are nearby. Travel, along with cruises, art exhibits, Broadway and opera keep us active.

We have been 'phasing' into retirement since 2013, and the Penthouse is the realization of one of our goals.

As I update this on 10/3/16 I am in the Sunroom overlooking the Caribbean Sea and Cupecoy Beach where recent weather brought a beautiful, long and wide sandy beach ashore!

These past five years have brought us many fine guests to our Penthouse, enjoying the island and respectful of our island home.

Brian Tremain purchased this condo in 2002

Why Brian Tremain chose St Maarten / Saint Martin

We had owned three weeks at this resort in one of the beach front Villas, and felt that this was the time to 'lock in' the best location and unit in this intimate and charming resort.

What makes this condo unique

I have been going to SXM since 1986 and Phil began joining me in 1994 and we are especially fond of the French side - the food - the ambience - the wine - the cheese and, of course, the beaches. Being an eighth of a mile from the French border works very well for us, and now with the Euro so much lower (below 1.12as of 10/4/16) dining on the French side is very wonderful and affordable!

Spacious, Easy Access from Parking, Great South View of Ocean, Well-equipped, Will Return!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, I have been to St. Martin many many times, but this penthouse and its wonderful space and fully equipped kitchen with the easy access to the garage made me want to stay here for months, not weeks. Great view of the ocean AND sunset from the wonderful balcony -it faces south so you can see half of the east and all of the west as the sun lazily moves across the brilliant blue sky from the east to the west. It is a large penthouse with many rooms and two full baths that have double sinks. The condo was truly ovely and completely equipped. Obviously the owners take pride in their property and it shows. It is fully furnished and the kitchen is great with lots of plates, glasses, pots, pans, and utensils. There were instructions and notes all over that made operating all the gadgets very easy plus books and guides to the Island laid out perfectly including the owners own lists upon lists of things to do and where to eat. I could not ask for anything better. I am repeating myself, but was repeatedly impressed as to how easy it was to get to the garage from the gate and then to elevator to penthouse, the cleanliness of the parking garage (exclusive only for the three penthouses - so it is neat, tidy and private), and the elevator just a few steps from where your park your garage - so easy to get your luggage up and down, to bring your groceries and to brings all your juices, water, and bottles of spirits up to your condo - and only 4 floors on the elevator and your are right at your door. Needlessly to say, I really enjoyed the place and the condo made my stay at St. Martin all the more enjoyable. I highly recommend this unit, it is located in an ideally safe area and close to everything. And staff is exceptional in their respect, kindness, and assistance - all of them!

I sure would to come back to this very unit/condo for a month, not just two weeeks.

Owner's Response: Well, from talking with our guest during the booking process I thought he would find our three bedroom, two and one half bath penthouse very much to his liking, and he certainly did! It appears the garage parking was a much appreciated bonus as well. Beyond that, what can I say other than this kind review now represents the thirtieth FIVE STAR review from our great guests. I believe I mentioned in an earlier review that our guests have always treated our island home as though it was theirs, and for that, we truly appreciate them all.

A trip of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

We (myself and five girlfriends) had the time of our lives at the Ocean Club's Palm D'or last week. We were so well taken care of by the on-site staff from the front desk wizard, Noreen, to the housekeeping staff. They were gracious and so accommodating to our no-too-fussy needs. The penthouse was spacious and very well appointed. We felt very safe and secure in our little home away from home. And don't miss the Green Monkey restaurant located next to a fabulous pool. Saturday nights = giant rib eye steaks! And listen to Margory who will tell you the best places to go and how to make your island home incredible for the duration of your stay. I just can't say enough about this past week. It will live on through our stories and pictures. And thank you, Brian and Phil, for all of the information going done good!

Owner's Response: What a kind review from, what appears to me while speaking with Sandy during the booking process, a rather discerning group of longtime friends. It is always great to hear from folks enjoying our penthouse and generally loving the island in all its unique qualities. We have found over the fifteen years we have owned at The Ocean Club that we so enjoy the French sense of calm. There is beauty not just in the Sea and surf, food and wine, but also in the kind folks who live their daily lives there. It is a welcome feeling that is not always found when one travels these days. We are so glad our island home was yours for a week. Brian

Everything We Needed, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The Palme D'Or Penthouse was the perfect vacation home for our group (8 guests 25-35 y/o). The three bedrooms with three baths worked out great, with two sharing the pull out couch in the great room. The views from the two large balconies were perfect. There are also two separate dining areas with a table in the kitchen/great room and a large glass table in the sun room, which lies between the two balconies, also offering a spectacular view. The green monkey bar down by the pool offered us a complimentary rum punch upon arrival, it was just the first of many throughout the week. The food was quite good and fairly priced. All you can eat ribs on Wednesday for $15 was well worth it. The beach at the ocean club was probably the nicest beach we visited all week! We visited towards the end of low season and it was our very own private beach for the week. The location of the penthouse was ideal for our large young(ish) group as we were quite close to Maho, where much of the top nightlife options are on the island. The penthouse is also located very close to Mullet Bay, a very nice large beach.

I would definitely recommend the Palme D'Or Penthouse and would stay there again on our next trip to SXM!

The Real Deal

  • 5 of 5

There is a reason that every review is 5 stars- the condo is wonderful. It was a final family vacation before our oldest starts college this fall, and it was the perfect choice. Clean and spacious, three large bedrooms, a great sun room and an outdoor balcony. Each day we explored a different area of the island. Some of our top choices:

1. Rent your SUV from Unity (Brian connected us with them)- nothing better than having your vehicle delivered to you at the airport and then dropping it off in the departure lane.

2. Orient Beach was our favorite beach- we loved the water and casual restaurants- Parking was easy. Other top beaches- Cupecoy- right outside the condo and a private little beach by Little Bay. (There is public parking right next to the Belair Beach Hotel.)

3. We did 2 snorkeling trips. One with Octopus Diving- 3 out of 5 stars: The Creole Rock site is excellent. The other trip was with Captain Alan's Snorkeling- 5 out of 5 stars. A little more expensive, but well worth it. We did the 1/2 day tour and enjoyed every second. Got to see the sea turtles.

4. Croissants at Sarafinas.

5. Beachfront dinner at Grand Case, but just as delicious was a crepe stand near the parking lot.

6. Loterie Farm. My son and I did the hike and saw wild monkeys

7. Card games at night in the sun room overlooking the sea.

The internet worked, but was slow for international work. My VPN connection kept getting dropped. Don't plan on doing a lot of remote work, but who really wants to anyway?

Dawn beach- too much seaweed. Glad we were not staying there.

Philipsburg- we are not big shoppers, so this was a wasted 2 hours. Too many tourists and bad restaurants.

Unexpected memorable event: Used google maps on the cell phone while driving, and it worked fine. Occasionally it would route you through "short cuts" that you would not ordinarily plan on taking. One time a wrong turn and inability to take a U turn had us go over one of the highest points- the grade was over 15% and it felt like the SUV was going to tip over backwards. More exciting than any roller coaster- a highlight that even the teens didn't want to repeat.

We highly recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: As always, it is so good to hear that our guests enjoyed our 'home away from home' and found it to be clean, spacious and with excellent amenities. It appears that they read a number of my recommendations regarding beaches, restaurants and places to discover around both the French and Dutch sides of the Island. Orient Bay is very popular with teens and college age folks as there are many water activities to enjoy. Not so much, if you wander to the right beyond Pedro's Snack Shack as the famous Orient Naturist Club can catch some unaware! I enjoy Orient for the calm, shallow waters caused by the reef just out from the coast. Glad their inquiring minds and spirits led them to do some adventurous snorkeling too. Dwane at Unity Car Rental is a great guy, and his manner of treating his clients sets him apart from the others. It is not unusual to be at the Ocean Club an hour earlier than if you booked with the other agencies that take you in a van to their off-site location, then leave you standing in line and go through the paperwork then wait for your vehicle! A first for me is to hear of someone using Google maps on their smartphone to navigate around the island. Too bad that Google wasn't around when Columbus 'discovered' St. Martin/Sint Maarten and the Carib natives.

Lovely apartment, lovely owner

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our time here. It's an embarrassment of riches to have not one spectacular deck, but two to hang out on. We spent almost every evening on the one off the living room having a drink and watching the sunset (but put some bug spray on at this time just to ward off those skeeters, please!). The owner is kind, communicative, and reasonable. Someone else on here mentioned the current of the local beach, and I agree that it's quite strong, so if you're looking for one to just lazily float in I'd suggest driving elsewhere. There is a decent grocery store down the way that even has a fair bit of gluten free offerings, which came as a huge shock to me. The Green Monkey is awesome for breakfast and/or drinks (it was off-season I can't speak about lunch or dinner as it was closed) - ask for Marjorie, she's from Texas and is just the loveliest. There are also some great restaurants down by the grocery store which are kinda/sorta walkable, but because there are no sidewalks it's a little wonky to do so as all SXM streets are narrow and this particular part of the road is not well lit at night. Very easily driveable (as in 2-3 minutes). The mall nearby (the Blue or something?) is alright - clean and modern with a couple good restaurants on the outside, but the inside seems a little vacant...maybe it was the time of year or maybe they don't have enough tenants. This latter info is kind of unnecessary I suppose, but when I read reviews I like to have a good idea as to what to expect. There is no question about loving the apt - you'll love the comfort of it and the balconies, the balconies, the balconies.....did I mention the balconies?

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you found the balconies some of the best spots to spend your relaxing vacation time! I have often said that the Sunset Balcony is my 'favorite room' in the penthouse. Extra special when you catch the "Green Flash" but still great any evening. The beach in front of The Ocean Club Resort can have its calm moments, then the next day you can see a dozen or more surfers catching the waves! I am not as steady on the legs as I was thirty years ago when I discovered the beaches along the Cliffs of Cupecoy, and now I prefer either Mullet Bay or Baie Rogue (Red Bay) on the French side about two miles from our resort. It is a great idea to rent a car so that you can discover the entire island if it is your first trip to SXM, or handy to go back to your favorite haunts. (There is covered, dedicated parking for our guests at the base of the O C Tower.) Across the road from us is The Blue Mall which has never met its potential as a day-trip with busloads full of cruise bunnies shoppers, but the recent news is encouraging in that the Marriott Hotel chain has acquired the third and fourth floors of the Mall to convert it into a JW Marriott Four Star hotel. As with many island nations, only time will tell ~ BTW, I so appreciate these folks and their love of the balconies, and it was said so poetically stated.

Honeymoon Haven

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with the location of this condo! Very convienient to airport, markets, beach, and shopping. It is impecably clean and has every ammenity that any traveler could need. The views are spectacular! We loved both the balconys as well as the view from the kitchen/living area.

Each day we adventured more into the island--and came to love it more each day. A car would be a must to see the island, but I can imagine a week not leaving the property as well. We found amazing dining in the local restaurants. We visited many of the beaches--all with a bit of unique flavor and took a day trip into Aguilla---all very easy destinations from the condo location. The ocean front area is a special very private escape.

The Ocean Club staff was very friendly and helpful. We especially enjoyed the local poolside cafe.

We are so grateful to the owners for sharing this paradise--and look forward to a return visit! Thank you!

Owner's Response: WOW, it appears the honeymooners liked our penthouse for its views, location and ambience! They covered a lot of territory while on the Island during their 9 days including what we always enjoy ~ a day trip to the former English colony of Anguilla. The coral beach at Upper Shoal Bay has been recognized by the National Geographic as one of the top twelve beaches in the world! From the many reviews we have received often there are kudos for the kind and efficient staff at The Ocean Club and I imagine should a potential guest reading this review were to choose to stay at our "island home" they would agree.

We have recently had cable installed in the penthouse with all the primary US, Canadian, French, Spanish and BBC stations. Cable is available in the Great Room, the MBR and White Bedrooms.
