  • Better than expected!!

    "We had very high expectations based on the photos here and on other sites. Those expectations were greatly exceeded!! Ivan and his staff could not have been nicer, more supportive or more responsive. We were very excited when we arrived to have beer, wine, water, etc in the fridge. Also a baguette multiple cheeses, meats, candy and coffee. The views are spectacular and it is an easy walk to Happy Bay or Friar's Bay. We felt very safe with a gate for the neighborhood and for the property plus 8 cameras around the property so you can see from every angle. There is a Gardner who lives on site but we never saw him/her. Only saw their motorcycle inside the gate from time to time. The kitchen is very well stocked with any utensil, dish, pot or pan that you could ever need. The only negative was that we expected a washing machine and dryer, but those were only available to the housekeeper. There is a service at the bottom of the hill that will do your laundry for a very reasonable rate. So that was even better than doing it ourselves!! We very highly recommend this place!!"

  • We've returned five times!

    "Hope cottage has become our favorite spot in the Caribbean. While my wife can sleep as late as she likes because shutters keep the bedroom dark, I awaken, make coffee and enjoy breakfast and view on the deck next to the private pool. When she gets up we read or play Scrabble until driving a short distance to a beach or Philipsburg. Marigot and Grand Case are a bit further. Hope Cottage is convenient, relaxing, and beautiful. There are many wonderful restaurants near by. The only thing we miss is that before the Westin Hotel was built, Dawn Beach had a wonderful beach bar named Scavenger's. We've recommended it to friends."

  • Amazing !

    "What a fabulous vacation home for couples or families! We had a great experience at this home on Memorial Day weekend 2014. House offers a spacious floor plan, breath taking views of the mountains and ocean in a secluded gated community. The amenities were magnificent and private bathrooms were great. We had plenty of space for the 8 of us who stayed there. The housekeeping services were helpful as well. There was plenty of outdoor space including a pool, outdoor dining, and grill. It was located in a convenient location only a short ride from the airport and several beaches. I would highly recommend staying here and experiencing tamarind hill estates for your vacation! What an amazing experience I can't wait to return!"

  • Spacious with beautiful views!

    "We visited St Marteen over the Christmas holidays and had a great time. The island of course is beautiful with many options for spending a day on the beach with endless opportunities for water fun. The condo itself was large and has amazing views, especially the afternoon that we were lucky enough to see a rainbow out on the horizon toward St Bart's. With two couples it was the perfect choice for privacy, with each couple enjoying their own bathroom and balcony, and for being together in the common areas for meals or playing a game. The staff was very friendly and attentive to our needs. We had a couple of hiccups with maintenance issues but the staff and owner were extremely responsive once made aware and went out of their way to make our stay more enjoyable. These things unfortunately can happen but the response to our concerns was the key to saving the trip! We would highly recommend the 6 hour snorkel boat trip out of Oyster Bay with Captain Alan's team. Our captain for the day was Francois and we were lucky to spend the day with him and his top notch first mate. On our Capt Alan's trip we saw sea turtles, barracuda, conch shells and much more plus got to visit Creole Rock and Pinel Island. Mullett Bay was our favorite snorkeling spot on the island. That is where we saw tons of fish, plus sharks, rays and even an octopus. Snorkeling was great around the Tiki Hut, although we swam out from the Little Bay Beach rather than paying to go to the Hut itself. My husband also went scuba diving twice with Scuba Fun Dive Center. A great experience for him while finishing his certification. Great dinner spots of Pineapple Pete's, SkipJacks and many more but our favorite was at Le Soleil in Grand Case on the French side. It was one of the best meals any of us could remember and our server Coco was a delight! Best value we found on food was at the Sunset Bar and Grill right by the airport which offered an opportunity for food and drinks while watching spectators get blown away by the jets as they took off. We would recommend both St Marteen and this condo as we had an exceptional week over all and would love to return one day!"
