Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you once again for opening your condo to our family.The condo was all you sad it would be and more. Ninoska and the entire staff were very accommodating and pleasant. They helped us to find excellent dining options as well as activities on the island. Bernadette served as an outstanding host. Her kindness, efficiency, and housekeeping skills were superb.

We had an awesome time in St.Marten and hope to visit again in the near future. when that time comes, we would like to contact you and rent the condo again if it is available.

Gorgeous ocean views

  • 5 of 5

The photographs don't do this property justice. Overlooking the sea, with a view of St. Bart's, everything was as advertised. We had a wonderful week in St. Maarten/St. Martin. Oyster Pond is located right on the border between the Dutch and French sides of the island, a 10-15 minute drive to Phillipsburg and a 20 minute drive from all the restaurants in Grand Case. We also enjoyed visiting the local creperie and enjoyed meals at Big Fish, Mr. Busby's, and Beau-Beau's. This condo is well-maintained and the owners appear to be conscientious and available. There is a current seaweed problem on the beaches found on the entire Atlantic side of the island (yes, even on Orient Beach), but hopefully that is temporary. There was ample parking on the property, even if you did occasionally have to park some distance from the unit due to high season volume. Overall, a wonderful experience; we hope to return some day.

2nd time, better than the first!!!

  • 5 of 5

This review is a long overdue.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful apartment yet again this past spring. I do realize that the host was dealing with personal health issues in her family but yet was in full communication at all times helping us with many facets of our trip as she did the first time.

I also want to thank her as I personally got very sick in the evening before our flight and we had to change departure dates to one day later. We contacted her in the very early morning and she was outstanding in permitting us to stay an extra day without any charge.

I can't say enough about this host and this great property. She has been outstanding to deal with both times we have ventured to St. Maarten.

We can't wait to go back someday.

One of a kind experience!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I stayed at this condo for three nights in mid-April 2015 and had an awesome time! The rooftop deck is incredible - we loved it and spent most of our time there. The hot tub/dipping pool was very nice. I hesitate to call it a hot tub because it did not really get hot enough for that, but it was still very enjoyable. The pool also has a swim/wave feature but it was not working. The view from the roof top deck (as well as from all balconies) is spectacular - out over the ocean with the islands in the distance and over the pool. We also used the BBQ grill twice and it was cool to be able to stay on the roof to cook & eat. The rooftop deck also had a refrigerator which was convenient, plenty of places to sit/lay, as well as multiple tables to eat/drink.

Regarding the condo, it was very nice, in excellent condition, and very clean. My son enjoyed the clean "pine" smell in the condo. The condo is in the very new section of Oyster Bay Beach Resort so everything in the condo is new. My son slept on the foldout couch and he thought it was comfortable - as much as a regular bed. We appreciated that the resort provided a large package of tools to us when we checked in so we had plenty of beach towels for the entire stay. The kitchen had everything we needed and the bathrooms were large and had enough hot water for all three of us to shower. The televisions had many American channels which was also nice and the wifi in the unit worked pretty well, even on the rooftop (although a weak signal).

We hope to return one day!

AWESOME 5 NIGHTS..ROOM WITH A VIEW

  • 5 of 5

Joined by another couple, we enjoyed 5 fabulous nights at the OBBR in late April 2014.

The condo was perfectly suited for 2 couples. The bedrooms were quite large and the bedding/ mattresses were hotel quality. The kitchen was fully stocked with all of the utensils and dinnerware you could ask for. The bathrooms were more than adequate and linens/towels were plentiful.

The location was great. Easy to cab to Grand Case, Orient Beach or Philipsburg for dinner/ beach.

But lets face it..the selling point of this condo is the rooftop pool/kitchen. The roof was completely private day,... and night, and you had great views of St. Barts on even the cloudiest of days. The pictures do not do the rooftop pool justice. You could easily get your sun up there all day while enjoying your own beverages from the kitchen.

Irene was very attentive to all of our requests prior to landing. She replied almost always on the same day and was extremely easy to work with. We could not have been happier with her service.

A great place to stay and we someday hope to be back! Thanks so much Irene. This review was easy to write.

Great stay in St. Martin

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days with another couple in St. Martin using this condo as our home base. The location was excellent. It was a quick trip to any part of the island (I advise having a car). Orient Bay was 15 min. to the north, Philipsburg about 15 min. to the south. Plus the location kept us away from the cruise ship traffic. Dawn beach was nice and not real busy. We were able to get 4 beach chairs together every day. Restaurants on site and within walking distance were all good. Drive around the bay to the french side to Dinghy Dock, it was one of our favorites. The roof top deck with hot tub / lap pool was awesome. Great view and totally private. The condo was perfect for 2 couples but would be comfortable for 6 very easily. Unit was clean and the staff at Oyster Bay Resort was very accommodating with any request we had. Irene, one of the owners, was very pleasant to work with. Thanks Irene.

Secluded but accessible beach resort on the Dutch/French border of St. Maarten. Enjoy casinos and gaming on the Dutch side, fantastic dining and white sand beaches (clothes optional) on the French side. Adjacent to Oyster Bay Marina and mile-long Dawn Beach, with dozens of restaurants within a five minute drive. Ferry to St. Barths from marina, hiking in nature reserve, para-sailing and ocean sports within 15 minutes drive. Windward side location provides refreshing sea breezes while protected beaches provide great sun bathing and swimming. Perfect!
