I've just returned from a month in Catalina apartment. You could not ask for a better address in Grand Case. The apartment had direct access to the beach with a view of the Caribbean unmatched regardless of price. A few steps out the front door and you have your choice of the top rated restaurants in St. Martin. Within the block, there is a bakery, small grocer, a spa and numerous clothing and beach related shops.

The apartment is as pictured with the exception of there being no TVs in the bedrooms. The kitchen is well equipped; the baths and bedrooms larger than expected.

There is one correction that needs to be made to the listing. It is by no means handicapped accessible. The location is on the second floor, some 16 steps up. The beach is a second flight of stairs down from the lobby. As I have problems with mobility, it presented a daily challenge.

Finally, my thanks to Phillipe who was more than helpful. When there was a problem or question he was available to solve or answer the concern. And to Jean Pierre and Isabelle who are kind enough to share this outstanding location. Merci!

Thank you/merci Jean Pierre. Your apartment is absolutely lovely. Clean, well equipped, stunning views from both balconies etc. Four of us just spent 12 beautiful days in Grand Case and were fortunate enough to rent your apt. Perfect location to enjoy Grand Case. Had an opportunity to eat at some of the beautiful restaurants just steps away from the apt. It's a perfect location to call it home base while visiting some of the most beautiful beaches on both the French and Dutch side. Truly a gem. Definitely recommend if you want to get to know the Island. When we go back to St. Martin we will be staying here again, no question.

Absolutely perfect!

We just got back from a 10 day stay in St. Marten. This condo is everything it's advertised to be. From the booking with Jean Pierre to our check-in with Phillipe we could not have asked for more. We have staying in Grand Case 4 times prior and this is by far the best accommodation yet. It was wonderful to have a deck both on the ocean and the street. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone interested.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a 2 week holiday in Grand Case. We were very pleased with the condo - the view across the ocean is stunning and you could sit and enjoy that all day. The condo was very clean and organized. Kitchen fully equipped. Both bedrooms and ensuite were excellent - comfortable beds. Beautiful original art really adds to the place. Beach is very quiet and good for walking -- not busy and overcrowded like Orient Beach. Restaurants are right outside the door -- so not worries about drinking and driving at night. If you want a more quiet secluded spot this would likely not be the location for you because you do have some street noise at night but it did not bother us. We were 2 couples and found it very roomy. Parking is provided -- but in Grand Case you alway struggle with your parking spot because people park everywhere . I would definitely book again if we return to St. Maarten. As well the owner has a spot in Paris which I will book next time I go there. Owner was excellent to deal with.

Location, Location, Location VIEWS and talk about being RIGHT on the beach!

I have not even checked out yet, but wanted to go ahead and post this. If you want to be in Grand Case, this is the apt. you should get. WHY? 1) Location is central Grand Case 2) Best views EVER, you have your private beach view and a balcony overlooking Grand Case main street. 3) You could not be closer to the beach 4) Apt is lovely, clean, well stocked 5) The doors open all the way across, if we were in the apt, we spent every minute on the patio 6) the boats 7) private beach access, the sound of the waves is so soothing 8) walking distance to the best restaurants in St. Martin, the only negative is that there are too many to choose from 8) the owner was responsive and most helpful

For you Americans, remember you are in France. The apt has several adapters for your use, I never had to use the ones I brought. Jean-Pierre, it would be nice to have instructions for how to use the appliances in English! Bring CASH, most restaurants and shops will let you pay dollar for euro if you pay in cash. Grocery store across the street had the basics of what we needed for our stay. We did not rent a car but there is a garage if you do, which is rare. Very cool boulangerie and pharmacy down the street. We did not have a bad meal but are going to have to go on a diet when we get back!

I use VRBO all the time, and am delighted with this choice!

I had never used VRBO or another similar site and I was very nervous about wiring money. I am happy to say that everything worked out great. Incredibly easy experience actually. This condo is amazing. If you love having a peaceful white sandy beach with calm turquoise water just steps from your door, world class dining, and a safe and quite neighborhood to call home while you are in St. Martin, this is the ideal place to stay. IMO, the best location on the island.

The condo has secure wireless internet. There is a washing machine, but no dryer. However, there are drying racks folded up on each deck and some clothes pins which worked great for drying our things.The washing machine is not those in the U.S. and I had a very difficult time figuring out how to use it. Jean Pierre if you read this review, please write down directions for how to operate the washing machine. Dishes, glasses, pots, pans, and utensils are all provided. You don’t need to bring anything. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked. There is also an oven with electric range, microwave, toaster, and coffee maker. The refrigerator is a decent size also. There is a bakery just a short a short walk away that has the most incredible pastries. When you walk out the front door go left down to the corner (that is also where the garbage dumpster is located for your trash). Turn right and walk down the block. The bakery is on the right. We sat on our balcony every morning eating pastries, drinking coffee, and looking out at the ocean and the sailboats. When we visited there were plug converters plus and a black step down transformer box in the condo. Most camera/cell phone chargers are rated for 110 – 220 V (look at the rating on the device) and need only the converter plug. Anything else that you are unsure of should be plugged into the step down. Look around the condo in the cabinets, shelves, and closets and you will be amazed at all that is provided. Lastly, there is a garage with an automatic door opener for parking your rental car.

Thanks again to you Jean Pierre and your wife Isabelle for sharing your lovely condo with us.

If you are considering staying at this condominium, rent it! You will not be disappointed.
