  • Fantastic stay- worth my first review!

    "This stay was beyond expectations!!! We stayed 6/29-7/5/14. This was our first time using VRBO, so we were a little nervous. However, Veronique was incredibly accommodating! The directions to the villa were exact, and the villa itself was just as the pictures promised. In addition, Veronique provided surprises to welcome us to the villa on our arrival. The place has an open-air environment; so much so, we only closed the wall of windows and the front door while we were sleeping or gone. Be aware that there are only showers and sinks in all bedrooms except the master. The guest bedrooms use toilets in the hallways, but that was not a problem for our group. The house has plenty of areas for sun and shade with a lovely constant breeze. The infinity pool is a great size and temp. The villa has snorkel gear as well as kayaks. We used the kayaks frequently to travel (15 minutes max) to Pinel Island for fresh grilled lobster (we literally picked the lobsters from a cage in the sea) and to tour the island. The food was some of the best I have ever eaten. Most of the places took such pride in the presentation of the meals. We ate most dinners in Grand Case (L'Auberge Gourmand and Le Cottage were our favorites!!! We did have a few minor issues. There was a plethora of mosquitos, but the St. Martin people are very used to it. We took plenty of bug spray, and Veronique provided a moderate amount of spray and precautions for us too. Another issue was lack of TV. We were there during the World Cup and were hoping to watch it from the villa, but the TV did not work the entire week we were there. Lastly, there is Wifi, but it is rather weak in the villa. One must stand in a certain corner of the villa to get any access. Overall, this was an amazing trip. I don't typically want to go back to the same places, but I would go back to Villa Pinel in a heartbeat!"

  • Lovely carribean villa

    "We spend a great 3 weeks with our 2 children (9 and 10 yrs) in this lovely house from July to August. The house is located in a quiet area, tastefully decorated, has a comfortable terrace and great view on the bay of Cul du Sac and Pinel Island. Very complete with snorkling gear, 2 kayaks, bbq, etc. Pool is not very big and a little bit shallow, but kids liked it a lot. Owner Philippe is very supporting and responsive on questions and to resolve small issues. All in all, this was the nicest holiday houses we stayed in, and would definitely go back to if visiting to St.Martin again."

  • This was fantastic, I wish we could have stayed longer.

    "We enjoyed our visit to Studio Pinel last year and returned this year to do it again. We were not disappointed and enjoyed it every bit as much. The property is exactly as advertised- clean, quiet and charming. You will need to rent a car if you stay here, to get around to the shops and explore the island. But it is paddling distance to get across to Pinel Island - about 7 min of easy paddling in sea kayaks that Bruno provides for free. There are great beaches and a really nice restaurant on Pinel Island. The owners are very friendly, speak English well and were very helpful when we needed them- but otherwise we didn't see them much and they were not in any way intrusive. Its a wonderful, restful bit of paradise."

  • A little piece of paradise.

    "My wife and I spent 2 thoroughly relaxing weeks at this studio. The peace and quiet , only interrupted by the sound of the waves beating the nearby shoreline, and the birdsong, made for a tranquil setting in absolute privacy. The studio itself has all that you need in the way of amenities, and is very clean and orderly. The family are only a step away around the other side of the house , should you need anything at all , or advice. Yves and his son Hugo are a splendid pair of fellows, polite, obliging, and helpful. A car is a must to get around this very pretty Island , with an abundance of beautiful beaches. There is a fine selection of restaurants and bars on both sides of the Island, and the nearby Supermarket abounds with French wines, cheeses, cooked meats and other delicasies. We put the Kayak to good use , paddling over to Pinel Island , and in the evenings took a bottle of wine down to the jetty to watch the sunset. What more can I say. A wonderful and memorable holiday. Denise and Dave, (Trinidad and Tobago.)"
