Go ahead----Lose yourself in the serenity away from the noise and haste daily life serves up by making memorable moments in this tropical paradise!

OVERVIEW:

On the Caribbean island of St. Maarten, Sea Star #24 is an intimate seaside retreat with 1,047 square feet of well-appointed living space---just footsteps from Dawn Beach via private walkway (no hikes or streets to cross!), and the infinity pool looking out at serene Oyster Pond Marina PLUS neighboring beach resort privileges as of April 1, 2017! Within the clicker- or keypad-activated gated, secure and renowned boutique-residence beach club, Sea Star #24 provides guests with a quiet, pristine, desirable community and geographic setting just over four miles removed from the cacophony of the crowds, bars, airport traffic, tourist enticements and high-rise or spartan accommodations that might not have air conditioning in E V E R Y room. A hidden gem at the beach club, Condo Sea Star #24 has gained rave reviews from guests who return year after year to enjoy this exquisitely-appointed and ideally-located condo. Ideal for couples, solo travelers, sibling getaways, families, au-pair arrangements and business travelers who need a break from their routine, or corporate enterprises who wish to acknowledge the contributions of their key personnel with an island vacation.

The exterior gallery (balcony) provides a serene, sunny morning northeastern view of Oyster Pond Marina and the inspiring backdrop of mountains and lush tropical foliage. Located on the windward, east coast side of the island, you will enjoy constant breezes from the beach from the three-sided wrap-around balcony and year round average 78-88 degree temperatures to soothe your body, mind and spirit.

SeaStar 24 provides five-star amenities (including all linens, towels, toiletries and bathrobes) to ensure your ultimate comfort and convenience and is located with easy footstep access to several favored restaurants, short drives or taxi transports to other beaches, spas and fitness facilities, numerous water sports, entertainment venues and excursion opportunities to neighboring islands. Despite being away-from-it-all, guests enjoy FREE, reliable high-speed wireless WiFi (Netgate) to stay in touch with family or business operations back home.

The island consists of two parts---the Dutch side and the French side, identified by border markers but requiring no passport for passage. Conveniently located on the Dutch side near the French border within the pristine, affluent quarters consisting of the Dawn Beach/Oyster Bay area, Condo SeaStar 24 provides the safety and security guests seek while traveling to the islands with gated courtyard parking outside and private walkway access to Dawn Beach (no hikes, drives or streets to cross to get to the beach!). Electrical current is American, so there is no need to borrow an electrical-current converter for your personal electric shaver or hairsetting appliances.

The condo sleeps up to two adults and two children with a king-sized plush Premiere Euro bed in the master bedroom, an en suite full bath and a queen-sized sofa bed in the living area, with a half bath conveniently located right off the living area. Private, in-condo washer and dryer are provided for guest use. The exterior three-sided wrap-around gallery (balcony) has a teak bistro table, two chairs and a small gas-grill. The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen has everything you need for that perfect meal. The condo has central air (2014-installed Daiken SEER 24.5 high efficiency inverter system) to ensure your comfort in EVERY room.

English is the predominant language on the Dutch side, and many ex-pat Americans call St. Maarten home. Dutch Gilders (NAF) are as readily accepted as is American currency and exchange is easily translated at point-of-purchase at shops, restaurants and grocers.

Currency on the French side is predominantly Euros, but many shops accept American dollars at the same rate as Euros while others will facilitate a conversion and, sometimes an upcharge (depending upon market value).

There are many wonderful eateries on both the Dutch and French sides of the island that your hosts and other guests have enjoyed. Menu samples are arranged in a notebook reference guide located in the Condo or you can ask the concierge for other recommendations. The universal favorites consistently remain #1-rated BIG FISH, right on site, Canoa Restaurant, Mama's Pizza and Captain Oliver's is just a short scenic walk or drive over the border across the harbor. Experience the local island flavors at Fatboy Jimmy's BBQ (across from GEBE Electric in Philipsburg, right in the public parking lot), and other local fare including all-you-can-eat ribs at Mark's Place in Phillipsburg, or delightful breakfast fare at La Sucrere, or try the Taste Factory in Simpson Bay or at Sarafina's in Marigot (Mar-e-go) where merely viewing the extensive showcase of fare is certain to pack on the pounds. Don't miss the baguettes offered at numerous bakeries--including the best FRENCH bread at Compal Le Fruit a Pains in Quartier D'Orleans (on the corner of Coralita Road)---and share any leftovers, if any, with the local fish.

Discerning travelers make it a point to thoroughly assess the various parts of any island to insure their choice is a GOOD one, and to avoid the disappointment of learning that the photos didn't tell the whole story about location, amenities, lodging comfort and cleanliness, security, local restaurants, the overall environs and easy beach/pool access. Choose well; choose wisely! Choose SeaStar #24 at Dawn Beach/Oyster Pond for all the RIGHT (and GOOD) reasons, as SeaStar #24 guests attest! Make it an adventure YOU'LL come back for year after year, too!
