A LITTLE PIECE OF PARADISE.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent 2 thoroughly relaxing weeks at this studio. The peace and quiet , only interrupted by the sound of the waves beating the nearby shoreline, and the birdsong, made for a tranquil setting in absolute privacy. The studio itself has all that you need in the way of amenities, and is very clean and orderly. The family are only a step away around the other side of the house , should you need anything at all , or advice. Yves and his son Hugo are a splendid pair of fellows, polite, obliging, and helpful. A car is a must to get around this very pretty Island , with an abundance of beautiful beaches. There is a fine selection of restaurants and bars on both sides of the Island, and the nearby Supermarket abounds with French wines, cheeses, cooked meats and other delicasies. We put the Kayak to good use , paddling over to Pinel Island , and in the evenings took a bottle of wine down to the jetty to watch the sunset. What more can I say. A wonderful and memorable holiday.
Denise and Dave, (Trinidad and Tobago.)

CLEAN, SAFE, COMFORTABLE STUDIO APARTMENT.

  • 4 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay at this location. It is very well located in relation to interesting attractions on the island, such as Grand Case (with many great restaurants) just a few kilometres away, right next to great beaches such as Pinel island, Orient Bay and Anse Marcel, and 10 - 15 minutes from Marigot which offers much more in terms of shopping and ferry to Anguilla. A car is essential to get around however. The apartment was clean, it had everything we needed, the bed was comfortable, and we appreciated that it was in a nice, quiet gated community right by the ocean. The hosts were extremely helpful and welcoming. No hesitations recommending this rental!

RETURN TO ST. MARTIN

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from spending six days in St. Martin to celebrate our anniversary. Our stay at Francoise and Yves's studio was relaxing and enjoyable. Our hosts took good care of us - when we arrived, we had a fridge full of breakfast delights (pineapple, butter, jams, milk), baguette, beer and soda. We felt welcomed.

We had breakfast in the patio almost every morning, and used the grill and kitchen for a couple of meals. The only thing to be mindful is the mosquitos, make sure put on some insect repellent when you go out in the evening. Moise the cat was a bonus for us, as she took good care of the patio :-).

Yves took us on a tour of the property and showed us the kayak by the beach, unfortunately, we did not have time to take out the kayak to Pinel but it's there for you to use. Don't miss the Caribbean lobster at Karibuni on Pinel.

The location of this studio is perfect for us because it's central to the supermarket, beaches, short drive to Oyster Bay, Marigot and Grand Case. There are a few restaurants nearby - Villa Pizza, Le Taitu (casual), Sol e Luna (fancy), boulangerie (best croissants on the turn to Mont Vernon). The neighborhood is safe and tranquil, made for a very relaxing vacation. We look forward to returning to St. Martin very soon!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Back in Holland....
We had a great time at your studio! What a wonderful place to stay! We enjoyed our stay very much.
Everything you need is in the studio. The kayak was fun and we spent many hours on the patio watching sugarbirds and just reading a book. So peaceful and quiet.

We had a great time in st. Martin, we visited a lot of beautiful beaches (le Gallion, Anse Marcel, Orient Bay) and discover the whole island whit our car.

We want to thank you very much for staying in your studio and if we have plans to go to st. Martin again we like to come for sure to your studio again!

ENCORE FANTASTIQUE

  • 5 of 5
As I sit in my office waiting for our first major snow storm of the season, I find myself daydreaming about our return visit last month to French Cul De Sac in St. Martin. Once again, Francoise and Yves were perfect hosts and again we thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful quiet of their studio apartment. Just the chirping of the sugarbirds and perhaps the mewing of Moise the cat to disturb the melodic pounding of the surf below. Try going cold turkey on the Internet and email as I did. You'll be amazed how quickly you settle into the rhythm of island life! We of course swam and strolled at Orient Beach daily, taking in the many sights. We also took advantage of our host's kayak which we took to Pinel Island on two occassions. The far side of the island has a beautiful beach with great snorkeling but beware of the current there that can quickly take you if you get too caught up in the beauty below the waves. On another day we drove to the end of Rue de Grande Caye (where we parked our car) and hiked up and around the end of St. Martin, enjoying magnificent ocean views and Anguilla in the distance. We walked to the very isolated Petite Caye where we frolicked in some huge waves before hiking on up the hill to Anse Marcel, site of the Radisson resort and marina. There, a nice Candadian couple allowed us to share their cab so that we could get back to our parked car. A beautiful and enjoyable day as were all of them. You will need a car if you stay here. I highly recommend Automax. We've used them twice and both times have been completely hassle free. Louis and his assistant Sebastion meet you at the airport where they will give you your car and send you on your way. They meet you on your return, you hand them the keys, and that's it. At least that's how it's been for us. So, enjoy your stay with Francoise and Yves in Cul De Sac but there is a downside: at the end of your stay you have to leave - and then you're left to daydream about your Carribean vacation as the cold wind blows and the snow falls outside your window. Bon voyage!!

A PEACEFUL ISLAND RESPITE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week at this studio and enjoyed a wonderful tropical respite. Our vacation in St. Martin was the perfect way to start the new year and recharge after the holidays. Getting away from Minnesota in January made us appreciate all the more being surrounded by warm sunshine, birds, the sound of crashing waves, and flowering shrubs...all just outside our door!
This unit is very private, very quiet, very clean, and very comfortable. It is not connected to any resort and is most suited to those who wish to get around the island and try the various beaches and villages on St. Martin. A rental car is a must if you really want to explore. That being said, our fondest memories were of staying "close to home" at French Cul de Sac. A nearby restaurant, Villa Pizza, was casual, delicious, and they offered much more than pizza. My favorite dish was the Chicken Curry, and we went there 3 times. It is within walking distance if you don't mind hills and bring a flashlight, as streetlights are not prevelant. Nearby Pinel Island had the best beach that we encountered. We went one particularly windy day via ferry (which was $7 per person and very easy to catch); but really enjoyed using Franciose and Yves' kayak to get to Pinel another day. It was a simple and beautiful trip, we pulled the kayak up on the beach and spent the day in the sun being waited on by staff from one of the two beach restaurant/bars. Heaven!
The best part of our stay was our ability to enjoy the outdoors on our private patio. Coffee outside in the morning was the best I've ever had. Just reading a book in the sun and enjoying the privacy and the quiet was such a treat.
We appreciated Francoise's attention to detail and our comfort. She and Yves were available and helpful, and respected our privacy at the same time. They are great hosts. We will be back for certain.
Advisory: Be familiar with the Manchineel Tree. It is a toxic plant that is common around beach areas and can cause skin burns and rashes...or worse. We came into contact with this menace somewhere along the way. It didn't ruin the trip, but next time I will avoid it like the plague. Worse than poison ivy!
Getting there: if you aren't familiar with St. Martin pay close attention to Francoise's directions on how to get to the studio. Street signs aren't as visible and you must pay attention to landmarks to find your way the first time.
