Wonderful view of Pelican Beach
Second floor apartment with a large balcony next to and overlooking Pelican Beach. The balcony contains a 6ft long sitting couch and table and chairs for 6 people. The apartment sits next to a bakery and the smell in the morning is incredible. The two bedrooms have very good air conditioning. The living room has another 6ft long rugged couch with a pull out single bed. We ate all our meals in the apartment, the kitchen was adequately stocked ( could have used a larger cutting board, a few large cutting knieves and potato masher though).
The best part of this apartment is the balcony with its expansive view of the beach and ocean . You can see fishermen bringing in their catch in the morning and a dozen or more pelicans surrounding them in hopes of catching an unwanted fish. You can see cruise ships leaving port in Fort de France around 6:30 in the evening. The beach is good for swimming but lacks shade close to the water edge.
We had a delightful two week stay in Francoise Duffys' apartment.
Thank you very much for your great review. You sell the experience very well. I’ll take note of the missing items.
Hoping to welcome you again.
Lovely stay and superb view / Séjour agréable et vue magnifique
En français ci-bas.
My husband and I had a lovely one-week stay.
The appartment is as described, pretty, spacious, and well-equiped. We adored the large, intimate patio that offers a superb view of the Caribbean sea. The reserved parking space is a plus in that area.
It is a good location to visit the north of the island : the mountains, Saint-Pierre, le Prêcheur... And, when returning from our excursions, it was great to come back to the appartment and simply walk across the garden to jump into the sea!
As mentioned in other comments, the 'Le Coin' beach is animated, especially on weekends and holidays. Evenings and nights are quiet, so one sleeps well. However, the noise of trafic and of the bakery make it difficult to sleep in... but allowed us to appreciate the calmness of the seaside mornings, as well as fresh bread!
Thanks to Françoise and to Mrs Saliber for their kindness; communicating with them was easy. A special thanks to Mrs Saliber for her punctuality when we arrived and when we left.
We recommend this rental and would love to return.
Mon mari et moi avons fait un très agréable séjour d'une semaine.
L'appartement est joli, spacieux, bien équipé et conforme à la description. Nous avons adoré la terrasse, grande, intime, avec une vue superbe sur la mer. L'espace de stationnement réservé est appréciable dans ce secteur.
C'est un très bon endroit pour visiter le nord de l'île : les montagnes, Saint-Pierre, le Prêcheur... Et, au retour des nos excursions, quel bonheur de revenir à l'appartement et de simplement traverser le jardin pour aller se baigner dans la mer.
Tel que mentionné dans les autres commentaires, la plage du Coin est animée, surtout les fins de semaine et les jours fériés. Les soirées et les nuits sont calmes, alors on dort bien. Par contre, les bruits de la circulation et de la boulangerie font en sorte qu'on se lève tôt... ce qui permet d'apprécier les matins tranquilles côté plage et le bon pain frais!
Merci à Françoise et à Mme Saliber pour leur gentillesse et la facilité avec laquelle on peut communiquer avec elles. Merci aussi à Mme Saliber pour sa ponctualité lors de notre arrivée et de notre départ.
Nous recommandons cette location et aimerions y retourner.
Perfect Island Getaway!
Great location right on the beach adjacent to a wonderful pastry shop and restaurants. The place was nicely decorated and had all the features we wanted. The place has off street gated parking. Electric hot water is a bonus too for larger groups.
Françoise was very accommodating to our travel times and speaks very good English. We will be returning to this paradise next year.
Amazing view, lovely town, perfect apartment
The photos do this property NO justice. The apartment is so cute, and so well appointed: internet access, an entertainment system and flat television, a good sized kitchen, a comfortable living area, 2 cute bedrooms (the master has aircon), and a large, well lit bathroom. But we practically lived on that magnificent patio, which had a large, comfortable sofa, a dining set, a mosquito net and a breathtaking view of Plage du Coin. This apartment is a second floor walkup, so it may not be suitable for persons with mobility issues. It was perfect for our romantic getaway, and we would also choose this apartment if we were travelling with our children.
You are only a few yards from a nice, open stretch of beach, and the water is so warm! It is great for playing, relaxing or having a swim. Further down in both directions, Plage du Coin is full of charming bars and restaurants, but it was also an easy walk to the Carrefour Express, or a quick drive to the larger market in Saint Pierre for groceries (secure parking was included with this rental). We took most dinners at the lovely Le Petibonum, just a short walk down the beach. This was partly because we were so pleased with the food, drink and staff, and partly because we visited during the off season: many restaurants were only open for the weekend, but Le Petibonum was open every day. Plan accordingly if you do not wish to eat out, and make sure that you purchase your food and seasonings ahead of time. And for goodness sake, put everything away when you are not using it: ants are everywhere in Martinique, they cannot be avoided and they will find your food if you leave it sitting! François provides a secure box for bread and pastry, there are sealed containers for sugar next to the stove, and there is room in the refrigerator for anything that needs to be put away.
I have just realised that I had not thanked you for your lovely review. So superbly written. Thank you so much. We are hoping to get more and more foreign visitors so your review is going to be very useful. Hoping to welcome you again. Kind regards, Françoise
Localisation parfaite pour découvrir le nord
Les + : localisation idéale pour aller découvrir saint-pierre, la pelée, grand rivière, les plages couleuvre céron, le zoo, balata... face a la plage; à pied pour aller aux bons restaurants de la plage; boulangerie à 10m, carrefour market, espace de vente des poissons frais; appartement bien équipé et fonctionnel; parking privé et securisé.
Les - : décoration et mobilier pas très au gout du jour, l'ensemble pourrait mériter un rafraîchissement (surtout sdb cuisine), tour de lit en bois qui casse les tibias plus qu'autre chose; appartement au 1er étage juste au dessus de la route principale qui mène à la plage donc passage continu de voitures au pas, qui se garent pour aller chercher du pain ou passent musique à fond donc pas si paisible que ça malgré la vue.
Globalement une bonne expérience, plus pratique que idyllique, parfait pour une famille!
Appartement conforme à la description faite sur le site.
Cuisine très fonctionnelle et bien équipé. Rue de côté bruillante mais distrellante.
Très belle vue de la mer avec ses coucher de soleil epoustouflant.
Acceuil et service impeccable.
Nous vous remercions grandement de votre appréciation . Nous sommes ravis que votre séjour vous ait plu. Françoise
