Simpson Bay is bordered by a beautiful 2-mile long, lightly-populated curved beach; Las Arenas is a very high-end 12-unit condominium complex right in the middle of Simpson Bay Beach (and one of the finest in St. Maarten); and this third-level unit, “Heaven”, is a premium unit within Las Arenas.
Simpson Bay is bordered by a beautiful 2-mile long, lightly-populated curved beach; Las Arenas is a very high-end 12-unit condominium complex right in the middle of Simpson Bay Beach (and one of the finest in St. Maarten); and this third-level unit, “Heaven”, is a premium unit within Las Arenas. It fronts on the beach and overlooks the entire bay and beach from the third floor, with floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides (and the ceilings are high) and a view of the Island of Saba off in the distance.
The aqua color of the sea, which is so sought after in the Caribbean, completely surrounds you. There are magnificent views from all rooms—living room, dining room, kitchen, and both master bedrooms. In the living room and dining areas there is more than a 200-degree panoramic view of the sea and the beach, and on the wrap-around deck—where you can just lounge and listen to the waves or have a meal any time of day—there is a 270-degree view. You feel one with the sea.
There are usually large yachts and sailboats tied up in the bay; and in the evening you may see huge cruise ship off in the distance. It’s an imposing sight. And after the sun sets, the many lights at the East end of the beach, from the “Village on the Hill”, provide a lovely and romantic evening view.
The weather is temperate year-round—even in the summer—and there is always a sea breeze to keep you cool. St. Maarten is truly a lovely place to visit in any season.
Heaven is a luxurious unit: marble floors throughout, marble baths, high ceilings, a modern high-end kitchen, beautiful furnishings, glass doors that can be slid out of sight, and electric shutters on the outside of all windows. The thick concrete walls, ceilings, and floors provide excellent sound proofing and security. The Las Arenas complex is gated, very secure, and impeccably maintained. The freshwater infinity pool right next to the beach provides a lovely and pleasant respite from a day in the sun. And the seawater is warm, clear, clean, devoid of seaweed, with moderate waves due to the protection of the bay. It’s an ideal place to swim, and the beach could not be any closer.
There are many amenities: large digital flat-screen TV in the living room with Bose sound system, flat-screen TVs in both master bedrooms, cable service, high-speed wireless internet, GE Monogram appliances in the gourmet kitchen including dishwasher and a wine cooler, a safe for valuables, secure covered parking, and maid service (except Sundays and holidays). Access is either by elevator or by spacious outdoor stairs.
Not far off are many restaurants offering wide-array of sea foods and various ethnic foods. It’s a short drive to a number of markets and supermarkets carrying the usual stateside choice of foods and beverages, but also offering wonderful French pastries, breads, cheeses, pates and wines. Bakeries, pharmacies, gas stations, car rental agencies, and the airport are all reasonably nearby.
There are many activities available including sailing, snorkeling, diving, deep-sea fishing, riding wave-runners, boat tours, touring the French side, visiting the butterfly farm, and traveling to neighboring islands to sight-see and shop.
Heaven is a no-pet and no-smoking unit.
It doesn’t get much better than this. Heaven really lives up to its name. Come and be one with the sea for a week or more—it is very renewing. If you do, there is a very good chance you will want to return!
