Me and 4 friends of mine (aged 28-39) have rented Tom’s villa for one week on late January.
The villa is beautifully located in a neighborhood on a small hill some 2km from the seaside. The nearest beach, Cap Chevalier, is windy, not the best for bathing but perfect for kitesurfers; there you will also find a couple of nice restaurants good for grilled fish, open at lunchtime. Other beaches –more suitable to bath in- are a bit more distant. Sainte Anne and Le Marin, the nearest small cities, are at 5 and 7km respectively, therefore a car is needed; indeed, rent a car is by all means necessary if you decide to go to Martinique.
The house is really nicely furnished, equipped with almost everything you need: tablet pc with wifi connection, a large flat tv (which of course we haven’t turned on being in such a beautiful place), hifi stereo with possibility to connect your music device to external loudspeakers beside the pool.. In the rooms, air conditioning works properly, and we found linens and bedrooms in general very clean and well kept. So were the bathrooms and toilets. The light comes easily in by the French windows that overlook the porch and the swimming pool. The pool is nice, being large, the water clean and devoid of leaves or other undesired stuff.
The house, and the needs of the guests, are managed by Joel, which indicated us the directions to the house and welcomed us as soon as we arrived. He has been friendly and helpful: he also managed to find us a car although we forgot to reserve one before leaving.
All things considered, Tom’s place is a very nice option for a vacation in beautiful Martinique: I would definitely recommend it.
