  • Beautiful Rental, Safe Neighborhood, As-Described and Better!

    "Group of 4 friends stayed for a week. Accommodations were perfect. Bob was very helpful and the rental unit was in excellent condition. Safe and friendly neighborhood, convenient location close to airport, shopping, dining and entertainment. Rooftop deck with amazing views was probably the highlight though, there is nothing like it. Would recommend to just about anyone from families to couples to a group of friends. A++"

  • ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL

    "Stayed here with a Group of 6 and this place is simply amazing! From the moment you walk through the door and out to that view you feel like your in a dream. Whether it be the spectacular sunrises or the amazing service Catherine and Ken the provide, you can't go wrong! It simply doesn't get any better than is. Although a wonderful honeymoon setting, it also sets up Perfectly for groups with two large dining tables and a kitchen complete with an island counter for serve yourself type dinners when you decide to cook in. If you can find time to visit pinel island on the French side you won't be disappointed. It has a wonderful quaint beach with two open air restaurant/bars and it's only $13 american to take the 5 minute boat ride round trip. It's a perfect beach for wading around while having a drink or two as it is shallow crystal clear calm waters. I can't say enough about the wonderful week we had here and we will most certainly be back next year as we have already locked up our week of bliss."

  • One Word...FANTASTIC!!!

    "I would have to agree with the other reviews. Four of us spent a wonderful week in Van's unit at the Royal Palm. We had the best time during our stay. The location is GREAT...walked to dinner at the Pizza Galley, Lee's, Buccaneer and strolled to the Carousel Gelato shop after dinner one evening. The condo was perfect for us...ground floor walk out to the beach and palapas. We had everything we needed and then some. The cooler on wheels was perfect for keeping our refreshments cold on the beach. We would definitely stay here again."

  • Beautiful Oasis by the Sea

    "To keep things concise, here's a point form breakdown of our experience at La Calanthe in July, 2014: Convenience - A very short drive from the airport, Marigot and Philipsburg! Very conveniently located near two grocery stores and a few decent restaurants. Kim Sha beach is less than 10 minutes by foot but we opted to rent a car from AAA and visit other more beautiful beaches instead. A great location! Safety - Gated and with Coco and Bruno right next door with their sweet dog Chanel, we always felt safe. We always locked up at night just as Coco and Bruno asked. There are lots of gated homes with guard dogs in this neighbourhood so it felt very safe. We did walk the road to Simpson Bay a couple of times but only did so during daylight. Water - Pool was awesome. Huge deck with a variety of loungers etc. Ocean was great for snorkelling and easy to access from the ladder. Watch the currents on windy days as they can become very strong if you're not a solid swimmer. Kitchen - All the amenities we needed as well as a BBQ outside. Oven takes a long time to heat up so try to use the BBQ for all meals. Rooms and Baths - Lovely and clean. Nice linens and frequent changing of towels. Lots of room to spread out in common areas although we rarely stayed indoors except to sleep! Tips - Rent a car as there is so much to see and do on this island and everything is so close relative to what we're used to in Canada! If you like to snorkel check out Little Bay on the Dutch side and Baie Rouge on the French side. Downfalls - Nothing really other than the mosquitos which were quite active during our stay, day and night, inside and outside. There are no screens on the windows or the porch and there is some lush vegetation on-site, so the bugs were a bit of a nuisance. We kept the bedroom and bathroom doors closed all day (a/c on at night only) and used lots of repellant with DEET. We did get many bites regardless but hopefully it's just a result of the rainy season. All in all an impeccable experience. And what a view! Highly recommended for LGBT families as well, given how comfortable we were made to feel."
