i'm not familiar with the simpson bay villa but am with coral beach club. these are fabulous townhomes which are only a couple of years old. are you on the beach with the pool on your patio or do you have a marina view. the beach units with the pool on patio are 2 or 3 bedroom units and right next to mr busby's beach bar. you are on dawn beach. is the simpson bay condo on the beach or just a great view. these are things to take into consideration depending on your personal preferences.

the condo in Coral Beach is: Alabaster 3 br 3.5 bath suppose to be right on beach. The other condo/villa is on Simpson Bay that unit is the view2die4. I'm a beach bum & water girl so I have to be on beach, we are trying to split the trip up and stay half the time on a private catamaran. Thank you so much for your help!

I Googled view2die4. From the pictures it looks like it's right on Simpson Bay Beach. The web site never says exactly where it is located. But I know that view!!! Beautiful, nearly deserted beach 3 minute drive to restaurants and activities in Simpson Bay. Only downside perhaps, the airport runway is your back yard.

I am not familiar with Coral Beach Club but did a ton of research prior to my March 2010 visit. Las Arenas villas are very nice. I stayed in "Heaven at Las Arenas" and was very pleased. The view was phenomenal and the Villa had open doors all the way around.

This small Villa community is right on Simpson Bay Beach and you can't beat the view the water and the beach. It's close to everything also. I hope this helps and enjoy your trip.

the 3 BR on the beach at coral beach club do have pools on the patios on the beach. they are spectacular units on dawn beach with st bart's in the distance. this area is upscale residential vs commercial. it's one of the reasons i love the area as well as it's location on the dutch/french border making it easy to get anywhere. but if you are looking to be close to the nightlife simpson bay may be a better option because of it's closer to casinos and clubs.

The reason we always stay at Dawn Beach instead of Simpson Bay is the close proximity of Grand Case (great restaurants) and Orient (great beach). I am a water baby, beach girl and love to experience all the different beaches in SXM. Happy Bay is wonderful, Dawn Beach is a beautiful view of St. Barths.

We stayed at View-2Die4 in Simpson Bay and were thrilled by the experience. The condo is directly on the water so to speak. It's quite an experience being so close to the water front and hear the waves and enjoy a 360 view.

We visited Coral Beach and the housing is nice. If you want a nice villa, both will do but Coral Beach villas can't compete with the Las Arenas villas for views and beach experience. Although my husband and I are strong swimmers, we found Dawn beach to be difficult and very windy when we went.

All in all, I'd go back to View-2Die4 in a jiffy.

I noticed someone mentioned the airport runway is in your back yard; obviously they never went to Las Arenas.
