My wife and I just got back from an 11 night stay in Kaybays and St.Martin. It has been 32 years since we last visited St. Martin. Kaybays was more than we could have asked for. My parents used to own a private home in Grand Case 25 years ago. Kaybays made it seem like we had never left and had a home again in St. Martin. It was a beautiful home and has everything that you could need or want. The Nettle Bay beach Club is a great facility and in a great location to explore the Island. It is easy to get to most places on the Island. Rent a car and go exploring. See how many different beaches you can see and pick your own favorites. All the beaches are public. You just have to find the access and they all have public access. After a day of visiting 2 or 3 beaches it was great to come back home to Kaybays and dip in the wonderful pool with a home made Pina Colada. The beach is a little coarse with crushed coral, but there a nice safe areas to enter and swim in the ocean. I made a little mistake and Louise helped us out. She helped to find us the perfect day trip. Funseaker.com. It was a 3 island tour, Creole Rock (snorkeling), Tintamarre (swimming with the sea turtles) and Anguilla. There were drinks, snacks, snorkel gear, lunch at a restaurant and a great crew. Do your grocery shopping at the Super U just out of Marigot on the main road to Grand Case. Buy your fresh fish and Lobster from the fish market in Marigot on Wednesday and Saturday morning. We made our own Lobster and Chateaubriand dinner, with a nice bottle of wine all in Kaybays kitchen and grill. Buy a bottle of champagne and go to Plum beach for your $1,000,000 sunset. USA visitors should bring lots of Cash. Many restaurants and shops give $ for Euros when paying cash. Restaurants - Sandy Ground La Santel is a fantastic restaurant with a tremendous sunset view over the water. Ask for the "Julliette Balcony". The souflee is devine. They offer $ for Euros. Grand Case L' Auberge Gourmand, La Villa and Piazza Pascal (Italian for something different) are all fantastic restaurants with great food and service. La Villa and Piazza Pascal offer $ for Euros and L' Auberge Gourmand offered us about $1.20 / Euros. We brought our own beach chairs, umbrella and cooller on this trip. So we always had a place to sit and a cool drink in our hand even at the unstaffed beaches. We will go back to Kaybays again and enjoy this lovely island home in St. Martin.
