"Everything was as promised! Fantastic location and a great studio! Wonderful suggestions for dining from Gloria. Loved it. Already booked for December and considering other dates to return. You will not be disappointed."

"We stayed here with two adults and two teenagers and absolutely loved it!
The entire wall opens up in the front, allowing a constant ocean breeze to flow right through. The view is unobstructed and absolutely incredible! Everything was very clean, the kitchen was well-stocked, and we couldn't have asked for more.
We stayed during June, so not everything on the beach was open, but there were still several choices for dinner just a walk down the beach.
There was a lot of seaweed when we stayed because there was a combination of high sea temperatures and storms out at sea, but we learned that this is not very common. We were still able to enjoy the beach and the beautiful pool every day.
It was nice to be near the restaurants and activities of Orient Beach, but staying at the quieter area of the beach.
The assigned covered parking spot was also a big plus.
This was our first time to St Martin, and after thoroughly exploring the entire island, I'm confident we made the best choice for us in accommodations!"

"La Martiniere is a well designed house with stunning views over Orient Bay with St. Barth's in the distance. The deck area by the pool is particularly nice. You can be in the shade no matter what time of day. The beds are comfortable and all the appliances worked well. The plantings around the pool and side of the house are very attractive. Even though the steep, narrow driveway is a bit of a challenge, the house and grounds are definitely five star.
We were met promptly on our arrival by Jean-Phillippe from the property managers. He quickly showed us some of the basics: How the safe box works; how to make the metal window guards go up and down, etc. He left quickly without telling us how to work to clothes washer with its French instructions; how to work the various remotes; what the alarm? gadget at the pool was and how it worked; and before we could ask our questions. He said he didn't know about the housekeeping schedule, but would get back to us. He didn't. He also said he'd check on us later in the week. He didn't.
The otherwise helpful binder with information about the house and area said the "housekeeper will be in every day except Sunday for a few hours to clean and place fresh linens." On another page it said the housekeeper would come either "every 4th day or so," every other day, or every day except Sunday. We had no housekeeping services. The lead property manager told us that on instructions from the owner there were no housekeeping services during our stay. This is really no big deal, but the written policy needs to be made accurate. More important is that there was mold on the wall in the master bath, a few roaches, and a bunch of dead insects in a corner of the living room. One mosquito repellant device was low on oil. The other was empty. We bought the oil and a third device at the local store, so had little trouble with mosquitos indoors after that. (Pest control must be hard to keep up with on the island, so we know the property managers have a challenge with it.)
Finally, we got conjunctivitis there. Given exposure and time of onset, our doctor thinks it might have come from the pool. I hope not, because otherwise, the pool is great.
We'd gladly return to La Martiniere if some of the issues (mold, pest management) issues were taken care of and especially if we knew the pool was safe."

"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.
Paul and Joey"
