"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)."

"My wife and I have been to St. Marteen 3 time now and this villa was the best value so far. It does not have five star hotel quality but it does have the working man quality, its not the top of the line but it works. Just as stated on VRBO 3 bed, two bath with pool. During our stay the the brackets for the handheld shower heads fell off the wall, for both showers, the hardware just rusted away. The pool is small but it was clean and very nice for floating around in the evening trying to cool of the sunburn from the day at the beach. The things that happened to use while using this villa are the third that happen to you while living at home. The deck around the pool could use some TLC and the ladder was not secured well enough for me to use. The top step fastener was missing one of its nut.
Just a little while before getting there the previous renter brought a cat and it had kittens while there. I did not realize that cats came with the place when I rented it. I'm sure that they will become more strays for the island.
The location to the beach from here is awesome, 5 min walk. There are shops and restaurants just down the road. You could actually stay at this villa without a car. A nice little market is on the way to the beach.
All in all it was clean, decorated, well equipped and charming. If I were to go back with a group of people or family this would be the place."

"We loved the villa and the location. Anna was a pleasure to work. Three adults and 2 kids. Perfect space with 3 bedrooms, the pool and hot tub were perfect with the kids. When the adults wanted to relax, the kids had the pool and hot tub to keep them occupied. 1 minute walk to the beach and the Waikiki beach bar. We had been to the islands many times, but 1st time with the kids. Anna is a wealth of information and pointed us to new restaurants which we enjoyed. The villa is as described, no complaints or recommendations, maybe 1, an automatic ice maker, ran out of ice for the cocktails a few times. My family and I thank you Anna for making it a wonderful vacation."
