Guestbook comments from the owner


The Cottage is an indoor/outdoor architectural masterpiece. Robert has done an amazing job creating this very unique environment and the view from the deck off of the bedroom is fabulous. The interior of the cottage is nicely appointed and very interesting. You are provided with a private entrance off of the road by way of an electronic and secure gate and can park your car just a few steps from the front porch.

Robert is very responsive to emails and was even kind enough to look into what happened to an old friend I had met in Grand Case some years ago. Sadly the news was not good.

The daily morning walk into Oyster Pond is a great way to start the day but be aware that the walk back can be a challenge! Our only disappointment was that Robert was stateside during the first part of our stay so we only had one opportunity to sit down and chat with him. This is a very nice place!

Honeymoon in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with us Robert & family! The cottage was the perfect honeymoon suite. It was great to have a home base after exploring the island all day. The kitchen had everything we needed for the times we wanted to cook & having a grill was great. Thank you for all your help & for the staples you stocked for us. Seeing Bella & Angelo everyday was so nice! They were a joy & helped us miss our pups a little less. The hot tub & pool were delightful. Thank you again & we hope to come back!

Wonderful stay at The Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I spent 30 wonderful days at The Cottage. Robert met us upon our arrival and immediately introduced us to the two dogs Bella(German Shepard) and Angelo (small mixed breed). We enjoyed their company and have missed them since we left.

This was our first visit to the Oyster pond area and we really enjoyed it. Almost everyday we drove to Orient bay around 8AM and walked 3 miles on the beach. Had several visits with our good friend Molly who lives on Monte Rouge. We visited her home to watch the Heineken Regatta. What an amazing sight!

Restaurants were outstanding loved Captain Oliver's and Big Fish were favorites in Oyster Bay also had great meals at L'Astrolabe and BO in Orient Bay. Make sure and go to L'Astrolabe on Friday nights to here the singer "Shine" he is fabulous!

The Cottage itself is amazing! The ground are so well maintained and pool and hot tub just perfect. Robert is the greatest host and is so helpful with any question or problems.

We definitely had a wonderful time at The Cottage. We would definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a quiet romantic getaway.

Robert thank you for a marvelous time in Oyster Bay.

Lovely cottage in Oyster Pond area.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so very much Robert. We were enchanted by our recent stay at your wonderful cottage. Upon our arrival you kindly greeted us and gave a very complete overview of the cottage and the grounds. The wine, beer and water you had nicely chilled in the fridge were just one indication of your hospitality. During our time there, we especially enjoyed reading in the morning light on the top deck of the cottage, relaxing by the pool after a day of driving around the island, sipping wine in the hot tub, and grilling local market fish on your charcoal BBQ. Having travelled throughout the Caribbean, your cottage will be remembered as a very special place, a true pearl – one that is authentic due to the care you have taken to nurture it over time. Very best wishes, Heather & Mike.

The Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place, peaceful and what a view. If you are accustomed to staying near the ocean, you should try the mountain side.This is a clean and comfortable location, Idea for a couple looking for privacy. And then there is Robert, what a nice host. We had computer problems and he arranged for a Tech to make a house call to address our problem. What service.

Future renters Beware !!! Part 5.

  • 5 of 5

Addiction is now THE rule.

It's been five years now, and we have grown to consider the cottage, a home away from home.

Most places we've stayed in usually get run down over time, but not here, oh no ! The cottage improves year after year, and stays spic'n span clean ! Thanks to the good care that the owner puts into it.

Now you see, that's the thing that makes us come back year after year and that's what we appreciate most. That, and the fact that Robert is such a wonderful host. Always there,and yet, discrete.

See you next year Robert and once again, we can never thank you enough for everything you've done over the last five years.

It has been a pure joy to vacation at Chateau Jeca.

Our wish is to continue to have the privilege to enjoy the cottage for at least five more years !

Perfect Relaxing Cottage for Two

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to SXM and this recent visit around Thanksgiving was one of the most romantic vacation get aways we have ever had. The cottage was just perfect for my husband and I to celebrate 12 years of marriage and de-stress from our everyday life. We lounged, relaxed and enjoyed the breathtaking views and beauty of Oyster Pond. We actually had a group of friends staying in Maho Bay but enjoyed the cottage so much we barely made the drive to the other side to visit. The Jacuzzi was magical under the stars with the most amazing view of the gardens and hill side. The cottage and grounds were very well maintained and felt like a quaint tropical paradise.

Robert was an amazing host and went above and beyond to make us feel at home. He stocked the fridge with a few essentials to get us started and also had a wonderful bottle of red wine that I absolutely loved. I also experienced some issues with my Amex card and Robert was kind enough to provide me with an address where I could have a replacement card sent. He was warm, friendly and provided the utmost hospitality and was readily available to assist with any request. Thanks for everything Robert!! 

This was such a special vacation spot and we are already working to plan our return trip to this lovely cottage oasis.
