    "Hope cottage has become our favorite spot in the Caribbean. While my wife can sleep as late as she likes because shutters keep the bedroom dark, I awaken, make coffee and enjoy breakfast and view on the deck next to the private pool. When she gets up we read or play Scrabble until driving a short distance to a beach or Philipsburg. Marigot and Grand Case are a bit further. Hope Cottage is convenient, relaxing, and beautiful. There are many wonderful restaurants near by. The only thing we miss is that before the Westin Hotel was built, Dawn Beach had a wonderful beach bar named Scavenger's. We've recommended it to friends."

  • Fantastic family vacation

    "Our family of 8 adults recently stayed in Rick and Marie's beautiful home. The house is actually more beautiful than the pictures show. The view is breathtaking. The location of the house makes it very convenient to walk/drive to restaurants and beaches. Mullet Bay Beach was fun with lots of people and activities. Karakter Beach was also very nice--not as busy as Mullet and chairs and umbrellas were free. Drinks and food were available to purchase at both places. Jennie was very accommodating and helpful. We used the Shop and Drop grocery service for our first night and it worked out really well. So nice to not have to immediately run out to the grocery story. Drinks were chilled and food and snacks were delivered prior to our arrival. We did rent a car and enjoyed our shopping trip to Philipsburgh. Rick was very honest and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this beautiful home. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Rick and Marie for offering an incredible vacation filled with wonderful memories that will last a life time."

  • AWESOME 5 NIGHTS..ROOM WITH A VIEW

    "Joined by another couple, we enjoyed 5 fabulous nights at the OBBR in late April 2014. The condo was perfectly suited for 2 couples. The bedrooms were quite large and the bedding/ mattresses were hotel quality. The kitchen was fully stocked with all of the utensils and dinnerware you could ask for. The bathrooms were more than adequate and linens/towels were plentiful. The location was great. Easy to cab to Grand Case, Orient Beach or Philipsburg for dinner/ beach. But lets face it..the selling point of this condo is the rooftop pool/kitchen. The roof was completely private day,... and night, and you had great views of St. Barts on even the cloudiest of days. The pictures do not do the rooftop pool justice. You could easily get your sun up there all day while enjoying your own beverages from the kitchen. Irene was very attentive to all of our requests prior to landing. She replied almost always on the same day and was extremely easy to work with. We could not have been happier with her service. A great place to stay and we someday hope to be back! Thanks so much Irene. This review was easy to write."

  • Chez SoColisa is AMAZING!

    "There are so many things that are GREAT about this place, I hardly know where to start. It was everything that was promised and then some. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Linda who is the owner's agent/concierge. She had stocked the condo in advance of our arrival with all of the items we had asked for. She patiently and thoroughly explained everything we'd need to know about the condo, the building amenities, and the area. (She also can schedule excursions, tours, activities, etc.) The owner had left us a kind welcoming gift and a nice note as well. The pictures don't fully capture the beauty of the condo, The Cliff property, and the numerous amenities available. Unless you live in a million dollar condo overlooking the Caribbean Sea, you will be awestruck. The staff at The Cliff was always helpful and we were always greeted with a genuine smile by the front desk personnel. The housekeeper, Marcia, was a lovely person and by the end of our stay we felt a real attachment to her. The vehicle that was included in the rental was in excellent condition and use of a free cell phone was a bonus. The condo has two phone lines, one local and one free international. The furnishings were modern, the beds comfortable, and the complimentary coffee machine was great. Fred, the owner, was a great person to work with and was always available if we had a question or a concern from the time we made our deposit until after we had returned home. The location of the condo is probably one of the best on the Dutch side. It is a quick drive to Marigot for morning croissants or a gourmet lunch, about half an hour to Philipsburg for shopping, five minutes to Maho Beach or a five minute walk to Mullet Bay beach. Porto Cupecoy with its lovely restaurants and grocery is a five minute drive as is Blue Mall. The Cliff has its own private beach as well. Its size varies with the currents but the cliffs are beautiful and there is a large cave in the cliff if shade is more to your liking. All-in-all I feel very fortunate to have been able to experience this place in the way that we did. When we return to St. Maarten, we will definitely be staying at Chez SoColisa."
