Bay View Residence
Bay View condominiums are a small group of stunning luxury units that are always in high demand. Conveniently located in on an oceanside cliff in Beacon Hill, in southwestern St. Maarten, between Maho, Princess Juliana Airport, and Simpson Bay Beach. Main level outdoor patios and individual rooftop terraces with private Jacuzzis compliment absolutely breathtaking views of the sea, and of Simpson Bay Beach, from each unit. The contrast of the white, clean architecture over the dark and colorful cliff rocks is mirrored beneath by the bright white sand and azure water. Wild flowers and iguanas hide among the rocks at a closer look, while the sound of waves gently crash below. The building is also practical, fully furnished and equipped with hurricane shutters, individual washer/dryers, and completely outfitted kitchens.
At your back door, a few minutes walk down the road, is Maho, St. Maarten’s entertainment capital. Residential amenities include a grocery store, pharmacy, doctor’s office, ATM, salon, and day spa. Boutiques and art galleries line the promenade, alongside ample choices between award winning bars and restaurants. Maho is also home to the two biggest nightclubs on the island and Casino Royale. A 5-minute drive down the road to Cupecoy leads to even more dining and entertainment options, as well as the American University of the Caribbean Medical School and the Caribbean International Academy.
Walk down the path from your front door and find yourself at one end of the sprawling Simpson Bay Beach, a largely residential white sand beach with calm water. Head to Karakter Beach Bar and lounge for some great atmosphere, food, drinks, and music, or enjoy the undisturbed quiet along the rest of the beach. Out your back door lies the quiet, residential Burgeaux Bay, great for snorkeling. Down the street, Maho is home to the famous Sunset beach, where you can experience the thrill of small island hopper planes and giant international jets alike zooming in directly overhead for a landing just off the beach.
