Recent Nettle Bay reviews

  • Romantic Getaway

    "My husband and I recently stayed at this beautiful condo on Nettle Bay. We were greeted by Elisa, Condo Manager, who was very pleasant and helpful. The condo itself is nicely located near the very end of the beach, close to the ocean. The sound of the waves and the wind off the Bay were very healing. The condo itself was well appointed and we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Located between Maho and Marigot, this property is perfect for venturing out for dinner or shopping. There are also three fabulous restaurants at the other end of the beach which we walked daily. We would highly recommend this property for a relaxing, romantic getaway."

  • Beautiful property, directly on beach, perfect!

    "You want to stay here. Hands down the most perfect location in NBBC. Directly on the only perfect stretch of this beach which is between two huge rock walls and really, it's your own, you will be likely the only people on it as we were. Walk right out of your huge open wall of doors into the sea, gorgeous clean sand, no rocks, no seaweed, crystal clear water. Let the waves lull you to sleep in your comfortable bed! For a rental, this place was incredible, every item you need, tons of towels, the furniture clean and comfortable. Plenty big for our family of 4. The entire back and side open up to let in the gorgeous sunshine, sea air and view. Oh did I mention the view? Anguilla to one side and Marigot and the mountains of the St. Martin the other. You have never seen a more beautiful sunrise. NBBC itself is quiet and close to everything, parking plentiful, people were friendly and the grounds well taken care of and lovely, the pools looked nice but we didn't use them due to our perfect beach. NBBC is gated with a guard and you can't get onto the beach without coming through the gates. We felt very safe here. Lots of local Europeans living in NBBC who keep their own apartments beautiful with flowers, etc. It's really magical. There is a little french cafe for bakery and espresso a few steps from NBBC, a grocery store and a some really nice restaurants also within walking distance. For all else you will need a car. We will always go back here. Sylvie (the owner) is beautiful as well. Friendly, helpful, checked on us to be sure everything was ok and became a dear friend. A perfect compliment to the villas and apartments she owns. She is truly concerned with having lovely rentals and keeping them nice and taking care of her renters. The microwave broke while we were there, we told her and went to dinner. When we returned, there was a new one. She owns other properties here which are also just as gorgeous, you absolutely cannot go wrong with any of them. Worth every penny and more, just let Sylvie help you choose the proper one for the size of your family/party. She knows what she is doing and wants you to be happy! This is a long review but I can't say enough about this place. I expected so much less and was blown away by what we got. I've stayed at a lot of rentals by owner and this is by far the best, especially for the price. If you want more info on this place from me ask Sylvie. I'm happy to share our experience and she can put you in touch with me."

  • Great Place to Stay in St. Martin

    "Our family recently stayed in this unit and found that it met all of our needs. The ocean view from the deck was perfect. Our son enjoyed swimming in the pool every day. Good proximity to Marigot and other places of interest, we spent time on both the French and Dutch side. We ate from the French bakery across the street every morning, and used the local markets for lunch and snacks. The condo was clean and very spacious for 2 adults and 2 children (infant and 6 y/o). The place looks just like the pictures, but better in person. Patrick and Louise made us feel very comfortable with the whole rental process, we would definitely stay there again!"

  • Fantastic beach vacation

    "We just returned from the most wonderful vacation we had at this place in St. Martin. The condo is located right on the beach. It is comfortable and equipped with all you need for your stay. The view of the beach and mountains from the deck is spectacular. The pool is right next to the condo and also on the beach. It is very clean and water temperature is perfect. The best for our family was that my husband and I could relax in the mornings on the beach right in front of the house, with cappuccino and croissants from the nearby bakery, play frisbee in front of the condo or just relax and read while our children were sleeping and safe. The grocery store is very close by, you could even walk but it is better to rent a car as you have many wonderful restaurants within 10-20 min drive. Jean-Pierre is the most gracious host. He truly enjoys taking care of his guests, attends to any need or fix that may arise. He goes way beyond what a condo owner would normally do. One day our daughter fell sick with an ear infection and we e-mailed Jean-Pierre asking for advice. Withing minutes he called to inform us that he booked a doctor's appointment for us for the same afternoon with a good doctor 2 min from the condo. Also very important: there are no mosquitos because of the closeness to the beach and the winds. The water has sea urchins but mostly on the beach pass the condo. We knew about is from other reviews of Nettle Bay and brought water shoes so it was not a problem. And there are so many other wonderful beaches to explore very close by. This condo is highly recommended."

Nettle Bay Travel Tips

Nice Nettle Bay Resorts for Your Next Vacation

You will find the wonderful Nettle Bay resorts situated just between the Caribbean Sea and the Simpson Bay lagoon, which means it has the perfect location for a relaxing escape to an island retreat. The area allows for a quiet and restful respite, like many St. Maarten rentals but with enough development that you will not feel disconnected from the rest of the world. Nettle Bay lodging is ideal for any type of vacation, ranging from a family trip to a romantic getaway.

Nettle Bay Lodging Is the Center for Water Sports

In recent years, those staying in Nettle Bay resorts have had an increased interest in water sports. The area is one of the centers for such activities in the St. Maarten area. Waterskiing, wakeboarding, kite surfing, and parasailing are all popular pastimes as are swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, and boating. In fact, these St. Maarten rentals are near the Academie de la Glisse which is home to true surfing experts.

See Real Natural Beauty from the Windows of St. Maarten Rentals

The view from Nettle Bay, St. Maarten rentals is simply splendid. To the north, you have the Marigot Bay and harbor as well as the island of Anguilla. To the south, you will see the Pointe du Bluff with the ruins of La Belle Creole. With views like that, it is hard to imagine stepping away from any Nettle Bay lodging! However, the beaches are simply pristine with plenty of privacy.

Nettle Bay Resorts Offer Something for Every Mood

The entire area consisting of St. Maarten rentals is laid-back and relaxing, though you may find the French side especially so. The relaxed Creole ambiance surrounding Nettle Bay resorts is perfect for relaxing and hanging out. If you are looking for lots of shopping and gambling, head out from your Nettle Bay lodging to the Dutch side which is much more boisterous.
