"My family of 6 stayed at Villa Suzanna from November 27 - Dec 12, 2014 and we cannot say enough good things. First of all, the property itself if beautiful. It is a three bedroom, two bathroom bungalow with a spacious living room, wonderful pool for the kids and an enormous deck. About a two minute walk from the villa is a small cluster of around a dozen businesses; bakery, clothing stores, a couple bars, pharmacy and some fine French cuisine and the beachfront. Villa Suzanna is located on a corner lot with two parking spaces in the beautiful, gated community of Orient Bay. Security guards and electronic gates mind the entrances making this a very secure, safe community. Activities are available a few steps from the doorway including parasailing, seadoo's, tubing, snorkelling gear etc. The master bedroom has double french doors opening up to the deck/pool, second bedroom has large windows opening up to the large side yard where the laundry closet / clothes line was located, and the third bedroom again has large double french doors opening up to the deck and pool. Queen beds in the master and third bedroom, and two twin beds in the second. I would recommend having a car rental while in St. Martin to enable you to explore the larger areas for shopping and activities. Grocery stores are about a two - three minute drive north of Orient Bay. Phillipe is the manager for the property and is very accommodating, kind man who ensured that anything was taken care of for us. Denis & Stephane, the owners of the property were very easy to set up our booking and provided us with all the information we required. Both the owners and property managers do not speak very good English, so we asked for the help of a French speaking friend to take care of the coorespondance for us to ensure all the details were clear and accurate. I did extensive research prior to booking this villa and I can assure you that the price for what you receive, the location of the property and the service provided are exceptional. I've read the other reviews, the the WIFI seems to have been upgraded, because it was perfect for us the whole stay. We watched movies on my laptop connected to the living room TV on a few nights that we felt like staying home. The recent hurricane had damaged the washing machine and was promptly taken away, repaired and returned, and the owner paid for laundry service while it was gone. Highly recommended, A+++, 100% chance we will return."
