"You have found the Arches, so you can stop looking for a place to stay. We stayed a week at the Arches in April 2014. We had 3 couples and we had an amazing time. We are already planning on going back next year and staying at the Arches again. The house is perfect, spacious, amazing views, every amenity you may want (except for a hot tub). Sitting in the pool in the afternoon with a drink, watching the waves crash was perfect. We did all the "usual" things, going to Mr. Busby's for the $1 beers at happy hour (good food, although maybe overpriced at night), driving around the island to Marigot, Grand Case for dinner, Philipsburg, and of course, hanging out at the Sunset Bar by the airport. The location of the Arches provides easy access to everywhere, although it does take a little while to get used to driving on the island (but that's typical of all Caribbean island). The drive up the hills to the Arches can be a little challenging the first time, but once you're used to it, it's easy. Bernard and Eudora are great and very accommodating, and the owners make the whole process very easy. The kitchen is stocked with virtually everything you need, including various pantry items and liquors (everyone leaves behind what they didn't consume, so there are plenty of condiments, spices, etc.). It is an uphill walk from the beach, which may be challenging for some, and you will need mosquito repellent (again, standard in the Caribbean). It is a perfect location, and amazing house, and we will absolutely be going back to the Arches."
