About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 And 1/2 Baths, Close To Beaches, Shopping, Restaurants

Our Princess Heights condo is a one bedroom, one and a half bath, fully equipped new stainless galley kitchen, living room/dining room unit located on the ninth floor, (the penthouse apartment), with panoramic views of the sea and of St Barth. We are the only condo on the ninth floor, so you will have no one above you or on either side of you. The marble floors and bathrooms, as well as the granite kitchen counter tops, ceiling fans in living and bed rooms, all give this condo a feeling of luxury! We are in a gated neighborhood and you will be given a gate opener at check in. Princess Heights has a security guard at night so you can feel as safe in our condo as you do in your own home.

The master bedroom has a four poster king sized bed with a Westin Heavenly mattress and a flat screen TV. The master bath has a jetted tub/shower combination. A Juliette balcony off of the bedroom allows for ocean breezes and perfect views of the sea.

The living room also has a flat screen TV, a queen sized sleep sofa as well as a twin sleeper chair, which were shipped in from Italy and are quite comfortable. The balcony has a small table and two lounges. The dining area has a glass top table with seating for four, and the granite counter has two bar stools.

Free parking is available on the 7th floor level so there are only two short flights of stairs to reach this dream condo. We have complimentary wireless, an in-room safe that will hold a laptop, and a direct dial phone. Fresh linens including beach and bath towels await your arrival! Any guest, at their discretion, may contact the office to arrange for housekeeping or fresh linens. There is a nominal fee for these services that the guest will pay directly to the office upon checkout.

A large swimming pool with diving board, an outdoor shower on the seventh floor, a laundry facility and small exercise room are all available for you. There is a a grill on level five. We have an on-site office that will check you in and out. They will also gladly answer any questions you might have or help you with anything you might need during your stay. Our office staff is very knowledgeable and friendly!

This condo is located within 15 to 20 minutes of Philipsburg (Capitol of Dutch Sint Maarten), Grand Case, or Marigot, (Capitol of French St Martin). Easy access to 110 jewelry stores, over 400 restaurants, or one of the many beautiful white sanded beaches.

About Larry and Nancy Miles

We've been visiting Sint Maarten/St Martin for over 12 years, we are retired and usually visit our island home at least 4 times a year. We have traveled extensively throughout the carribean over the past 41 years of our marriage and SXM is easily our favorite island! I was born and raised in Savannah, Ga and have always enjoyed beaches, warm weather, friendly folks, good food and of course shopping! This island has all that and more. My husband was born and raised in New Jersey and spent his summer vacations as a youth at 'the shore' in a family owned beach house in Bay Head, NJ. Owning this condo really has been our dream come true.

Larry and Nancy Miles purchased this condo in 2005

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nancy & Larry,

Just got back to St. Louis last night. Temp is zero this morning. We had the best time in St. Maarten. We really enjoyed our time at your place at Princess Heights. Everything was just perfect. We visited all the beaches you said and enjoyed our time at each one, especially at Baie Rouge. We would love to come back again. Thank you again!

Beautiful Views- Comfortable Room

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed on the ninth floor of building one and enjoyed the beautiful view. The rooms were large and very well decorated. The four-poster king sized bed was perfect. We spent every morning out on the balcony with our coffee and breakfast looking over the ocean and towards St. Bart's. The pool was large and had just enough seating for the 12 to 15 guests usually there. We rented a car and I would highly recommend it because of all the steep hills around there. There are restaurants and a casino down the hill at The Westin. There are also several excellent restaurants within a fifteen minute walk ( up and down rather steep hills). The only real down side to this marvelous place are the many steps ( no elevator in that building) and this was an issue for my wife. Parking was two floors away, the pool five floors away etc. However if you are in good physical shape and enjoy a little exercise this probably would not be an issue. Stan S

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

The title is no joke, that is what it felt like to us. Beautiful and comfortable furnishings. Well equipped kitchen. Large kingsized bed that is extremely comfortable. Being on the top floor with no one to your right or left was nice too. If you don't like A/C , no worries, as you will not have to use it all the time. There is a great breeze that comes thru this unit. A lovely front balconey and also a back balconey makes the unit feel very spacious. Also a balconey off the bedroom~There is a beautiful large pool, not the kidney shaped ones you find, this one you can actually swim in! The owners are wonderful and fun to work with. You will get a quick response to all of your questions. You will have to walk up approximately 36 stairs to get to this well worth it unit~, we did not find that a problem.

"It Doesn't Get Much Better Than This"

  • 5 of 5

This lovely condo met all our expectations and was exactly as advertised. The pictures do not do justice to the remarkable actual view (front & balcony) and the sounds of the water and the gentle breeze that is present throughout the evening. We had a wonderful time celebrating our 40th Anniversary in St. Martin and this well maintained and beautifully decorated condo played a significant part. The nearby restaurants and parking at the Westin or the quick walk to the beach prove to be extremely nice. The cooperative efforts and ease to work with the owner as well as the sage advice on getting around St. Martine was on the spot and greatly appreciated.

Outstanding Rental, Great Price

  • 5 of 5

For a condo rental in the Caribbean, this has to be one of the best for this price. I'd definitely refer this condo to a friend.

When we arrived we were incredibly impressed with the view from both balconies - it is spectacular. The condo has all of the comforts of home as well as extras like pool accessories, coolers, and books.

It's very spacious, kitchen is well equipped, and bedroom/en suite is large. Because it's on the hill you have a beautiful breeze that you don't get on road level. It can make a huge difference on those really hot muggy days.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. No hidden costs or charges.

The beach is across the road, but you must walk through the Westin Hotel property to get there. This wasn't a problem for us, the Westin people seem very kind and the beaches are all public so everyone has a right to use them. (However, you can't use the Westin chairs). There are quite a lot of other hotel/condos around Oyster Bay/Pond and Dawn Beach.

My sister was staying at Oyster Beach Resort but I think this condo was nicer because of the view and the generous size.

The clincher? The property's resident orange cat. One of the most welcoming, affectionate guys I've ever met, just dying for attention.

There's a restaurant called Canao near Oyster Beach Resort - very good food.

**DON'T GO TO MR. BUSBY'S! We experienced extremely rude, intimidating behaviour by the men there, especially on the beach. They charge $11/day for a chair in front of their hut/restaurant. I got violently ill after eating there.
