"My wife and I stayed here for 11 nights in November and it was great. We opted for this size unit over a studio to give us some extra room but what really made this ideal was the location of the unit, the reserved parking spot and how well equipped the unit is. As others have commented, the kitchen is well stocked and included little things zip lock bags, aluminum foil, spices, etc.. We drove to several other beaches during our stay and the beach chairs and umbrella were excellent - portable but substantial (not your Walmart one time use items) and several coolers from which to choose. There are 2 remote controlled A/C units that are whisper quiet (not sure why hotels don't use these?) and the electric storm shutters not only keep the morning light out but made us feel secure at night. Marie-France was easy to deal with and very responsive. She met us at the unit, gave us the quick tour, left us a local cell phone to use and made sure we felt "at home". I highly recommend this unit! We have rented from VRBO many times and this one is the best so far. We don't usually re-visit the same place but might have to make an exception for this one!"

"Great break from Canadian winter! Our first family vacations since the birth of our baby were close to perfect thanks to this amazing accommodation. The house is clean, comfortable, well equipped and we enjoyed very much the pool and outdoor facilities. The little village of Orient bay is at walking distance so is the beach. Having a car is however necessary if you wish to see the most of St-Martin. Sonia and Martial were very welcoming and helpful hosts. We recommand this proprety if you are looking for casual, relaxing and amazing vacations. Thank you again Sonia! Sabine, Simon and Alexandre
Une belle façon d'échapper à l'hiver canadien!
Des premières vacances en famille quasi-parfaite avec notre bébé de 3 mois grâce à ce magnifique logement! La maison est propre, bien équipée et nous avons bien profité de la piscine et des installations extérieures. Le village de la Baie d'Orientale et la plage sont à quelques minutes à pied. Une voiture est toutefois fort utile pour visiter Saint-Martin. Sonia et Martial sont des hôtes chaleureux,courtois et avenants. Nous recommandons fortement cette propriété si vous désirez passer des vacances relaxantes sans souci. Merci encore Sonia et Martial ! Sabine, Simon et Alexandre."

"My wife and I just returned after two weeks at Villa Du Voyageur. The pictures on the website are accurate. The pool is beautiful and private. The villa is very well appointed, comfortable and safe. It was a perfect home during our vacation. The villa is located a five minute walk to the village, which provides access to a number of restaurants and a new and improved grocery store (Casino) as well as the beach. To the extent we had any questions or concerns, Frank and Nathalie were incredibly responsive and helpful. They are sincerely nice people and making their acquaintance was an added bonus. We have stayed in St. Martin on seven prior occasions, often at significantly greater expense, and we have never had such a relaxing and enjoyable experience. We could not recommend Villa Du Voyageur more highly. We will be back.

"We just returned from spending 8 nights at Martine's place. I totally agree with all that was said about her, responsive and gracious host. She was very patient when our wire transfer took much longer than anticipated and she was always extremely quick in answering our e-mails. The apartment interior is exactly as shown on this site, beautifully decorated with nice amenities (including ice maker in the fridge, a nice surprise). The only photo not truly depicting current conditions is the one of the "terrace" outside the apartment. What appears like nice wood planks on the photos is currently dried-up grass. And there are no bushes with pretty blue flowers. Maybe the wood got destroyed in the last hurricane and the bushes died due to the terrible drought (latter none of Martine's fault of course). But I must admit we were disappointed that the photo wasn't updated to depict the real setting. Furthermore, due to the odor from all the seaweed on the beach right in front of the property, we couldn't open the doors, it was really bad. Nothing Martine could do about the seaweed situation either (which is getting more prevalent on many of the beaches which is a shame). Just to bear in mind if you travel there soon (local authorities are looking into ways to address the seaweed problem). I think it would be fair to say that the photo of the outside of the apartment should be updated to represent the actual condition. That said, not sitting outside the apartment didn't spoil our vacation, we enjoyed touring the island and exploring many seaweed-free beaches (Mullet Bay and Baie Rouge were some of our favorites)."
