Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Michael,

thank you for your mail. We'll stay in contact. Once again I have to mention your friendlyness, reliability and the excellent service you gave to us during our stay on this wonderful island of St.Martin.

The climax was the boat riding yesterday with all the exiting places you showed us, especially: Ilet Pinel.

Please take good care of yourself.

Very nice and cozy studio close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 9 Nights in Monte Cristo Studio. We had a really great time. Nettle Bay Beach Club is a 24/7 guarded community. We felt very safe. The studio is nice decorated and is in a good condition. The balcony has a great view to Marigot and the ocean. Nettle Baie and its beaches are not very crowded so it is the perfect place to relax. The beach is quit ok but for snorkeling not the best on St Martin.
Aux fines des gourmandises, a great bakery, is just a few meters away. If you want to discover the island a rental car is necessary also for your daily needs. Just a few steps away Nettle Bay has two nice beach clubs, Dreams and Le Sand. They have very nice beach chairs and good food.
Monte Cristo Studio is the perfect place to stay while you´re on St Martin.

Cozy home away from home....

  • 5 of 5
Mike made our entire experience wonderful from the very beginning. I asked a ton of questions before we ever arrived, which he answered promptly. He arranged for a rental car company to pick us up and then met us at there to show us the studio in person and answer any questions. He arranged a romantic dinner for our anniversary at a French restaurant on the beach.
The studio was clean and well stocked with towels, chairs, cooler, etc. Bed and bedding were very comfortable and we loved the private patio with comfy lounge chairs. They provided a strip plug that was already attached to a converter (which made charging our phones much easier) as well as a blow dryer that fit their outlets.
There's a great French bakery just down the road that serves the best quiche ever. We also went to Grand Case for what my husband calls "the best fish he has ever had" (a whole red snapper) at Sky's the Limit. We prefer a laid back atmosphere and Grand Case has a lot to offer.
Our all time favorite beach location was Palm Beach (recommended by Mike) at Orient Bay. The food and service were excellent and if you eat lunch there they throw in lounge chair rental (nice). This is another place we will return to!
We recommend renting a car. They are inexpensive and allow you to explore this wonderful island.
We didn't have time to charter a speed boat with Mike but plan to do that the next time we are there.
We highly recommend Monte Cristo for a couple who are looking for privacy on the quiet side of the island. If you want something larger, Mike can set that up as well.
At the end of our trip Mike returned to the studio to make sure we enjoyed our visit. Now that's what I call service!

We just got back from our stay at the Monte Cristo in NBBC. We have rented through sites like Homeaway and are well traveled. Pros: Great location. NBBC is five minutes to a half hour from all places on both sides of the island. On Nettle Bay Beach, there are three restaurants. Dreams will give you free beach chairs if you eat at the restaurant, wiithin walking distance of your rental. The studio is as pictured. The deck is much nicer in person and the view is remarkable. Excellent and close pool facilities. Electric blinds to keep the sunlight out in the AM. Great for sleeping in! Quiet and safe. Cons: The water pressure stinks. The shower barely pushes out water and once you flush the toliet, you have to wait several minutes to flush again. This comes with being on an island, but should be noted. There are huge cockroaches...everywhere. We found one in our room after returning one evening and all over the sewers on the property. Again, island life, but I found myself constantly looking around me and around the studio upon arrival for roaches...we were paranoid about the food we left behind, and frankly I just don't want to be bothered with this while away on vacation. The light above the bed constantly flickered on and off. The air conditioning needs to run all day for the room to be cold at night. We never met Michel who we had corresponded with before our arrival. The cars offered through their rental service are fine for getting around the island but forget getting up any of the hills in St. Martin. Although they do the job toting around the island, they are not great for getting over the bumps and cracks on the French side..there are a lot. Isabel, Michel's wife, met us at the car rental place and took us to the rental. She was very hasty in her description of the surroundings, however did email us soon after her departure with a lot of info. A major problem it is advertised that there is 24 hour concierge service, but there is no phone. You have to email Michel/ Isabel with q's. Sometimes it would take them over an hour to get back to us which made it hard to plan ahead. Michel did send someone over to look at the air conditioning, water and lights, but we were still in bed when she arrived. Nothing changed so not sure if she returned or simply could not do anything. The bed is not comfortable and there is no blanket. We were on a babymoon, and would not recommend for a romantic couples vacation. Too much hassel.

Owner's Response: Hello Jenna, I am Jean-Pierre, the new Monte Cristo manager. My apologies for the troubles during your stay. With the new owner, we changed many things in the studio. For the cockroaches (you'r right, the island is quite infested), we treat now the studio and all around 4 times a year. The water pressure was a general problem on the island and now, the French side renovated the system. Air conditioning was changed and now it works very well. Concerning the arrival of my guests, I often spend about one hour to explain the studio, the residence and indicate groceries, bakery, restaurants and so on. Now, we can provide a cellular and, in case of any problem, my guests can call me and I come very quickly (I live at about 10 mn from the studio). The mattress and the base are new (Queen size 180 x 200 cm) with a good quality. A last precision : the Nettle Bay Beach Club is protected 24h/24 but there is no concierge service. I hope nevertheless you have good memories of Saint-Martin. Best regards. Jean-Pierre

Quaint little suite, with all you need for your stay. Room is exactly as shown. 1 large closet for your clothing & suit cases. Nice and clean. Deck with a perfect view for your morning coffee. Only thing missing was a toaster. But with the French bakery across the street its not really needed. If you are from the US or Canada there is a power bar with proper electrical plug to use so that was really nice. There was even a hair dryer in the bathroom which was perfect since I didn't have the electrical converters. After we were leaving they were bring in a contractor to fix the flooring on the deck - so they are maintaining the villas. 2 small things to note - there was only a sheet on the bed and me being a Canadian like my blankets and can't sleep without them, we purchased a blanket and left it there. The only other small note was that they dresser drawers didn't hold a lot of clothes but not a big deal since the closet is so large.

Michal and Isa were fantastic hosts from 7 services. If we go back to the island I will be contacting Michel direct and booking though him for sure. They were very informative & put us at ease as soon as we landed - I can't say enough good things about them. With this being the first time visiting the island Michel gave us a quick map tour of the island and the highlights to visit. They also arranged for the rental car to be at the villa when we arrived. The car is a must though them. I don't recall seeing lot's of Taxi's but they are there so the car rental is the way to go.

All in all - a fantastic holiday, the food on the island is wonderful, the beaches the best I have ever seen, and the people are friendly.

A huge THANK YOU to Michal & Isa from Seven Services.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at the studio for a week at the end of November. We have stayed in Nettle Bay twice before. The studio is exactly as depicted in the photos. Michal was a very gracious and responsive host. He picked us up from the airport and quickly showed us around. During our stay we ran into a temporary emergency when the studio and a safe keys became separated from the key ring. We texted Michal about our situation and he showed up within twenty minutes to let us in the studio. Needless to say, we were thrilled when he arrived. We would highly recommend staying at his studio.

Good Location, Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I just returned from our stay at Monte Cristo. There are pluses and minuses about the unit, but overall we enjoyed our stay at Nettle Bay Beach Club (NBBC). On the positive side, the condo is in an ideal location for exploring the island. You are basically within a 30 minute drive of anywhere you would want to go on the island. I would recommend renting the car from Hanna/Michal, as you will need it to go just about everywhere, and you do not want to deal with the car rental agencies in St. Martin. There is a great French bakery within walking distance right outside of the gates of NBBC and a pizza place as well. Most other restaurants you will need to drive to. The unit itself is exactly as pictured. Keep in mind it is a studio apartment, so it is very small. You will not want to spend most of your time indoors on this island anway. There are many great beaches within a 5 to 30 minute drive that you can take advanatage of including Friar's Bay, Baie Rouge, Orient Bay, Anse Marcel, and many others. NBBC has four pools if you enjoy that instead, we did not use the pools so i cannot comment on their condition. The beach at NBBC was generally very rough for our entire stay and very rocky, so we did not use it either. This condo is ideal for a couple who wants a convenient location in St. Martin, are on a small budget, willing to rent a car, and want to explore the island and all that it has to offer rather than hanging out at a pool all day. If you enjoy laying by a fancy swimming pool, sipping Mai Tai's, I would recommend one of the many resorts on the island instead. Overall, as I mentioned before, our stay was good and Michal (Hanna was out of the country) was very hospitable.
