Overview

World Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Flat, 1 Spacious Living Room, 1 Separate Room, 1 Bathroom And 1 Separate Wc, Ac

The Beach Tulip is located on the beach, at 10 meters from the sea at the Nettle Bay Beach Club. It is very well equipped with a french touch. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning. A large deck in front of the sea. View on Marigot bay and Anguilla island.

At the Nettle bay residence, you have 3 excellent restaurants and bars located at about 200 and 300 meters, barefoot, by the beach (The Mati Beach , the Dreams and the Sand (modern bars). A French bakery/pastry/pizzeria is located at about 100 meters from the residence gate. 300 meters later, you have a very fine French grocery Monop' and a "Simply" supermarket (caribbean dimensions !! but open 7/7 from 8 am to 9 pm) at 3 kilometers. Better with a car. The road is quite dangerous (no sideways). At the other side of the road, 300 meters from the residence, you have a famous restaurant, one of the best of the island, « La Cigale » and several other, Hotel Mercure restaurant, le flamboyant restaurant, Mezza Luna, Italien restaurant on the beach…).

You have also a fine traiteur at 300 meters « Fabulous feast » near the residence where you can order some meals

You can park your rental car inside the residence - important for car rentals - (secured by guards 24h/7/7).

We enjoy; Martine and I, to spend a few time to explain the island, to recommend restaurants, beaches, groceries and activities.

Sleek, Clean, Modern, Bright Beachfront Property

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin! My husband and I stayed at the French tulip for our honeymoon. We had an amazing stay at the condo. Jean-Pierre and Martin are so inviting and helpful with all of their knowledge about the island. Even after we initially met them, they were available to answer any questions we had. The condo is exactly as you see in the photos in a gated beach condo community. Modern, Bright, Clean, Tastefully Decorated are a few words that come to mind. Appliances are all brand new and top of the line. Jean-Pierre and Martin also had beach chairs, beach noodles, snorkeling masks, and other useful beach necessities available to us in the condo. The ocean is steps away from your patio and if you'd rather go to the pool that's about 100 or so feet away as well. The view of Marigot at sunrise and dusk on the patio are breath taking! The patio is also perfect for seeing the occasional rain cloud roll in. Mezza Luna, a restaurant not far from the condo had exceptional service (the waitress was very patient with us since we didn't speak French), the food was just as exceptional especially the pizza! One of the many activities we did was zip lining at Loterie Farms, which was not far from the condo. During our last couple days at the condo, we discovered a great breakfast cafe in Simpson Bay called Cafe Atlantico. If you're looking for some American type breakfast options, this is the place to go for breakfast (French Toast was amazing). All in all, you cannot go wrong staying at this condo, it is beautiful. Jean-Pierre and Martin take excellent care of their properties and are the friendliest vacation rental owners we have come across here on VRBO. We would not hesitate to highly recommend this condo or one of the other properties that Jean-Pierre and Martin own to anyone. Thank you Jean-Pierre and Martin for making our honeymoon all that we could've imagined and more!

Beach Tulip was Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Beach Tulip was just as described and so much more. Jean Pierre and Martine took the time to meet us and take us to the Villa and go through everything with us. I just loved the bright decor and Martine's choices for decorating.I highly recommend this rental.The location is great with lots of choices in restaurants a short drive away and a couple within walking distance.We ate at the bakery each day for breakfast and picked up sandwiches one day to take to the beach.I can't add anymore to what has already been said.We really loved sitting outside at night,listening to the waves and gazing at the stars.We have been to SXM 3 times and we'd stay at Beach Tulip again,without another thought.

Fourth time around and not the last

  • 5 of 5

What can we add to all the wonderfully positive reviews posted for Beach Tulip, other than they are all very true. We have travelled to many corners of the world and rarely return to the same place, there always seems to be some disappointment. Not at Beach Tulip. Every time has been a delightful surprise. Jean Pierre and Martine are constantly improving and renovating even down to the smallest details. We found all new outdoor furniture, new lounge chair, sofa and dining set this visit, believe me the previous ones were not that old. Very few owners invest in making the unit so comfortable and pleasant. Everything is of top quality and most importantly it is immaculately clean. We wonder if anyone has lived in the unit in between our visits...

Martine and Jean Pierre are fabulous hosts, they will attend to any of your needs. I had a small medical issue, phoned Martine to ask if she could recommend an eye doctor, well...I hardly had time to jump in my jeans in time for my appointment 30 minutes later. They are well connected on the island and everyone loves them. They love their island, they love Beach Tulip, you can feel that, and they will love to give "their best" to you.

Encore merci pour un séjour fantastique.

A bientôt . We shall return

Perfect, perfect for family of 3

  • 5 of 5

We need more than 5 stars! We just returned to Toronto from our 11 day vacation in June 2016 and we can't say enough great things about the Beach Tulip and Jean-Pierre and Martine. The apartment is immaculately clean and looks exactly like the pictures. The beach is literally outside of your door. The appliances (fridge, stove, dishwasher and microwave) are high end and work beautifully. Espresso machine too. Martine leaves an abundance of good quality towels for indoor and beach use. Lots of good hangers are in the closet so don't pack any! The washer is great and Martine provides the pods. There are beach chairs / beach umbrella and noodles for your use to take with you to the various island beaches. There is a cooler bag too. There is a hair dryer and curling iron/straightener so no need to bring any of that! The linens for the king size bed and the sleeper sofa are good and clean. The Wifi was perfect for our 9 year old and there is Netflix so a night in for movie night was enjoyed! The pool was clean and warm (bit deep if you have little ones) and we did enjoy snorkelling from the 3 beaches right outside our doors. There are locals who live in this complex too which was great for chatting by the pool and learning more about the island. As for the location; this place is perfect if you like to explore the island. Really close to Marigot (3-5 minute drive). There are 3 restaurants that you can walk to along the beach. The local bakery was great for morning coffee and lovely croissants (knew my husband's name after 2 days! Owner used to live in Toronto!). Jean-Pierre and Martine leave a "book" in the unit that has maps, information and restaurant recommendations. This is great information and use their name when booking meals as they are very well known and respected on the island. Please, please go to Tropicana in the Marigot marina. Best food and service on the French side! Nearby Mezza Luna is also fantastic with the loveliest staff (you can take-out and the sausage pizza was my son's favourite!). Jean-Pierre and Martine are available if you need anything (our bedroom air unit broke and they had it replaced with a new one in a matter of hours with no inconvenience to us at all). They are truly two of the nicest and warmest people we have ever met. We had no complaints, only compliments and our family will be definitely be back to stay at Beach Tulip!

Exquisite!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from an extraordinary one week vacation in St. Maarten. I spent a lot of time researching to find just "the perfect place" for us. We booked the "Tulip Beach Condo" at the Nettle bay Beach Club. From the moment we made contact with Jean-Pierre and Martine it set my mind at ease. They were very helpful and knowledgable about the island. It was our first time booking with VRBO and we were very pleased with the outcome. Jean-Pierre and Martine met us near the hotel at one of their favorite restaurants called Mezza Luna. They gave us our key and told us all about the nearby restaurants and sights to see. When we entered the condo we could not believe how beautiful it was. The layout and decor was amazing. Jean-Pierre and Martine took special care to make sure the condo was perfect! It was immaculate and very well appointed. They paid special attention to detail, even chilling a lovely bottle of champagne and two glasses for us! There was not one thing we needed. They had thought of everything. The terrace, the view, the beach, the pool, everything was incredible. To fall asleep with the sound of waves and a nice breeze was spectacular. Our only regret was that we did not book longer. We could have stayed at this perfect, centrally located condo forever. It is located in The Nettle Bay Beach Club, a very safe gated community near restaurants. We especially loved the patio where you could lounge and watch the sunsets. This accommodation gets a 5 star+ in our books. We won't stay anywhere else when we return to St. Maarten. It's paradise! Thank you Jean-Pierre and Martine! You treated us like family and made our stay something we will never forget!

Amazing Time at Beach Tulip (Nettle Bay)

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing vacation while staying at Beach Tulip. Martine and Jean-Pierre are wonderful people and made every effort to make our stay a pleasant one. The back of the condo is literally steps to the beautiful ocean, and several chairs and loungers are available to take in the sunrise and bathe in the warm weather. Views are increadible. The neighbors cat Tommy was also very welcoming :D The interior of this property is simply beautiful. Every step is made to make you feel at home. Beautiful full kitchen with a dining table for those who like to take a few meals at home. The lounge is very comfortable and a tv with movie box is provided for when you just want to stay in and relax. The bedroom is very comfortable with lots of storage space for all your garments. We loved the fact that you could fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves. Jean-Pierre and Martine gave us nany recommendations for places to eat. The bakery acoss the street is superb. Sarafina is in the town of Marigot and sells the most delicious wheat and walnut bread. Messa Luna (Italian) was very good and we ate there several times. Two other resurtants were within walking distance via the beach. Ma Ti has several meals to tempt your pallet and the waitresses are so so sweet. Dreams is also along the beach but we never made it past Ma Ti. The island is beautiful and the beaches never dissapointed. Very friendly people everywhere you go. We drove around the island several times but must admit we loved the Frence side the most. Food is better, beaches are better, and you get some peace and quiet. Lotiery Farm was fun also. The serve amazing food and extreme zip lining is a must. Watching planes land just over Mabo Beach was breath taking. Not to mention the individuals who wanted to experience the jet blast as planes took off from the end of the runway. Incredibly dangerous and incredibly interesting to watch. We loved this vacation so much we plan to go back before the years out. I would recommend this property hands down for location, and all the comforts of home. Our stay was 10 - 18 May, 2016
