Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at this condo for 2 weeks in February/March 2012. The second floor condo is very clean and is in excellent condition. Has everything one would need for your holiday. In fact, the day we arrived the A/C had broken down but our hosts, Phillipe & Marie installed a new A/C unit the following day. The gated, secure location is on the French side so a vehicle is necessary if you are like us and enjoy exploring an island! We went to a different beaches everyday and enjoyed Orient Beach (people watching), Dawn Beach (view of St Barth), Friar's Bay (calm surf), and Baie Rouge which is really close to the condo. We did a day trip to Anguilla. You take the ferry from Marigot approx. 25 minute ride. We spent the whole day at Shoal Bay Beach, fabulous, great for snorkelling. Phillipe & Marie are great hosts and are there for you if need be. In summary, we would highly recommend this property and island for your next vacation. It was fabulous!!!

Very amazing stay for our honeymoon!

  • 4 of 5

We were joyfully surprises to see the very nice location of the appartment.

Just according to the pictures on the side: on the beach with the sea and swimmingpool in front. It`s such a good feeling to get up in the morning and have a dive into the sea and the pool.

The interior of the apartment was very good. There was everything we needed.

Louise was very kind and willing to help with questions etc.

We rented a car and drove accross the island. We liked to be in Marigot, in Philispburg and Grand Casse. What a nice restaurants are there, especially `Jambalaya` .

We ate at the harbor in Marigot, at the beach just near Nettle Bay and at the delicious Italian Mezza Luna nearby. Just with our feet in the sand!!

We liked Friar`s beach and most of all Happy Bay

Perfect getaway location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this unit for the week over New Year's eve. The resort is very quiet and secure. The unit itself is much better than any hotel room that I could imagine renting on the island because of the kitchen and balcony. Simply put, I would rent this unit again without any hesitation.

If you are going to party and enjoy a lively atmosphere, this isn't the place to rent from. Everyone that lives or rents in this location was friendly and polite; however, I can't recall hearing anyone's stereo or hearing loud conversations/parties.

Location: It is about a 15 minute drive from the airport. I would recommend getting a car if you plan on staying here as it is not frequently visited by taxis. Everything on the island is easy assessable from this location, especially if you time the traffic correctly.

Food: There are multiple amazing French restaurants within walking distance from the unit. They all required reservations--but are well worth it. LeSand (not the most famous or highly rated) was the best for us and is only a 5 minute walk. They were all much better than anything we have access to in the US and priced well for the quality. Appetizers were around $15-25, main courses around $30-40, and wine from $30+ to give you and idea. We ate out in one of these places three times during our week and enjoyed every meal.

We enjoyed eating breakfast and lunch at the French Bakery around the corner from the resort and a few in Marigot to be outstanding. You will not be disappointed if you like coffee, quiche and pizza.

Check in and out: Very easy! Louise tracked out flight in and was waiting at the gate after we texted her that we were close. Check out was equally as simple.

Bottom line: I had a good time, enjoyed the unit, and would rent it again.

Very quaint and cozy...

  • 5 of 5

We spent a quick week in St-Martin in Nov-15, and needed a place to stay. Philippe and Marie's place was perfect for us. We made our breakfasts, and sometimes grabbed a bite to eat before heading off. It is perfectly located on the french side of St-Martin, near Marigot, where we were able to go dining, and do many excursions on the island using our rented car. We enjoyed waking up and eating out on the balcony overlooking the sea, and listening to birds & the crashing of the waves. The beach area in front of the Beach Club is small, but it was great to relax. There are many beaches nearby (driving distance) if you want a bigger beach. So many thanks to our hosts, we recommend this place to anyone looking to experience the good life in St-Martin!

All you need!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this rental just last week! The apartment was perfect for a couple, spacious bathroom, and the kitchenette was perform for our needs. The pools on the property are well taken care of and we often had them all to ourselves. Quiet area this time of year with a great bakery just down the street! The booking process was easy and Louise was very accommodating. Would stay again!

Excellent Place

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from this studio and we had an excellent stay. The studio is as described on the website. There is a great beach and it is very safe. Louise was very helpful and was very accommodating. We enjoyed the patio every morning. There is a bakery and 2 stores with in walking distance. I would highly recommend this studio for a couple. The Mai Ti restaurant at the end of the beach (10 min walk) is very good as well. I would recommend to rent a car to see the whole island. We will be staying here again.
