  • TIMESHARE OWNERS OR EXCHANGERS considering a visit to any SXM timeshare resort (Simpson Bay Resort, La Vista, Sea Palace, Divi Little Bay, Royal Islander, Royal Palm, Atrium, Sapphire, Flamingo, Oyster Bay Beach Resort, and others) might need a timeshare calendar to check on when specific timeshare weeks fall in the years ahead. We now have a Timeshare Calendar, thanks to Royal Resorts. Some resort calendars differ, so check with your resort; but our understanding is that the dates you'll see here apply to most resorts.
  • On a hillside overlooking beautiful DAWN BEACH you'll find Princess Heights Condominiums, offering a gorgeous panorama of the Eastern and Southeastern horizon looking toward St. Barts. Visit their site. Email access is available online. Tell GM Emil Lee we say hello.

American University of the Caribbean Students (and others):
Sources of Long-Term Island Rentals

The American University of the Caribbean's beautiful new headquarters campus in Cupecoy attracts many American medical students. We're frequently asked where they can stay. Here are some answers. We appreciate Ric Hetzel's help in putting this together for us:

1. Contact Walter Kassel at Tendal Real Estate N. V. 1-721-544-5383. Ric told us "Walter is a regular customer at our place and he does help AUC students get housing." Tendal is on the Web at Mention Jeff Berger's SXM website.

2. There is a ReMax office on the island and they too assist students with housing. Call them at 1-721-544-4062.

3. David Mayhew manages Tradewinds Apartments next to AUC, which may be where more students stay than everyplace else put together. You can email him by clicking here.

4. The best place (and the newest) is the new apartment complex owned by "Mark," a landscaper from Detroit who spends his winters in SXM. His newest building is on the right side of Jordan Road in Cupecoy just outside the front entrance to Summit Resort. More info:

Dear AUC students,

We are taking this opportunity to introduce you to Campus Village Apartments, the preferred housing choice of the AUC students.

For those who have not had the pleasure to visit the premises, the residence is located in the Cupecoy area; 5 minutes away from the AUC and the Mullet Bay beach and golf course, 8 minutes away from the Princess Juliana International Airport and in a booming area with everyone's favorite restaurants, bars and clubs.

All units are set up identically: They all include ceiling fans and A.C. in the living room and in the bedrooms.

All one-bedroom apartments have the same surface i.e. 650 square feet, brand new and strong furniture and brand new and massive equipment selected to last long.
Four units on the ground level at the corners of the building, however, do not have a balcony and therefore are rented for USD 1,100 per month. The reminder of the 1-bedroom apartments all include a very nice balcony and therefore are for rent for USD 1,200 per month.

Looking for a two-bedroom apartment? Experience a luxury penthouse with two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms with an incredible view from the top terrace on the lagoon, the Mullet Bay beach and golf course and even the French side. The penthouses have been built with a surface equal to three times a one bedroom apartment for a rate equal to twice the monthly rate of a one bedroom apartment (i.e. USD 2,400 per month). These units are also fully and newly equipped and furnished.

The building is also running Cable TV and DSL Internet connections. Therefore, it only takes a couple of days to get it set up from your unit.

To move in and feel comfortable right away in your apartment, we have placed the following:

-Kitchen: Wooden cabinets, electrical stove and oven, microwave, 17 cubic refrigerator, lamp, and some additional silverware, plates and glasses...
-Living room: mini bar with stools, two armchairs, a sofa, two living room table.
-Bedroom: Queen-size bed, and closet, bedside table, sheets, pillows, lamp.

All windows and sliding doors are equipped with blinds and all units include an individual washer and dryer.

What more could we tell you about Campus Village?
We are a dedicated team that is committed to the tenants to make them feel comfortable and safe where they live. We understand your need to be able to focus on studies and not worry about anything else. We always stay available for our tenants and support them to the best of our ability by creating the right atmosphere.

We will be pleased to count you as a member of our Campus Village Team.

You can contact us at or at 1-721-552 0111 and ask for Erika or Michael. We will be delighted to answer your questions.

Till then, take care and hope to hear from you,

Campus Village Management Team.
N. B.: Prices have certainly changed since we obtained the above, a few years ago. And in summer, 2011, DeVry took over AUC; that may also mean changes. -Ed.
