The Light House in Oysterpond Condos for Sale
The Lighthouse at Oyster Pond, located on the east coast of St. Martin next to Captain Oliver’s Marina, is a new and stunning architectural gem. 18 luxury apartments are available in this 6-story building. Only 3 spacious apartments occupy each floor so that each room gives the feeling of truly being at the ocean’s edge. Glass elevators continue the theme of oneness with the gorgeous surroundings of lush green hillsides and blue water. No luxury was spared in these units, travertine tile floors, granite counter tops, top of the line GE appliances, mahogany doors, 2 person soaking tubs in 5-fixture master bathrooms, wiring for CATV and wireless internet, endless windows, high ceilings, and private balconies with endless views all seamlessly come together for a truly high-end experience.
On one side lies Baie Lucas and the old Coralita Hotel, a natural beach great for snorkeling, backed by lush green hills, and peppered with quaint art galleries, French brasseries, cafes, and bakeries. A bit further up the coast is the St. Martin Nature Marine Nature Preserve, with a mangrove forest that harkens back to the St. Martin of years ago. Also here is Le Galeon, St. Martin’s premier spot for wind and kite surfing, as well as a calm bay for beach goers. Try Chez Pat for great food and drinks on the beach. On the other side of the Lighthouse is Dawn Beach, an absolutely gorgeous beach of fine white sand and glittering turquoise water. Enjoy a relaxing soak in the healing salt waters or swim further out to a tropical reef for excellent snorkeling. Mr. Busby’s Beach Bar and Grill at one end of the beach has been here for generations and offers you food, drinks, and chairs, while the opposite end is quiet and distraction free. Also close by is Guana Bay, the island’s surfer paradise.
About a ten-minute drive to both Philipsburg, the Dutch side capital, and to the Orient Bay area, Oyster Pond is convenient to every residential amenity, as well as to all the shopping, dining, and nightlife that these two bustling hubs have to offer. Tucked away just enough, peace and quiet can be found in the villas and condos of Oyster Pond, among lush hillside vegetation and stunning ocean views. The marina at Oyster Pond is serene and nothing less than picturesque, with residences, boutique hotels, food market, a dive shop, cafes, bars, and restaurants. Yachts and sailboats quietly cruise in and out, as the sea opens to the east, with views of neighboring St. Barths in the distance.
