  • Beautiful Condo

    "This penthouse condo is a true penthouse, we did have the best of views! Panoramic views. It includes two indoor jacuzzi tubs, three showers and hot tub outside. Bath and bedrooms are very large, and could easily accomodate 8. Furniture is comfy and very nice. The condo is well furnished, well stocked with cleaning products, bedding, comfortable beds, lots of towels, beach towels as well. Hair appliances. We met the cleaning staff and they are very nice also. The only issue was with the pool not being useful for the majority of our stay, however this was being fixed whilst we were there. Security is very friendly at the gate. Also do not expect interaction with other condo guests, we barely seen anyone anywhere. Very close to Maho (walking distance) as well as Maho and Mullet Beach. Maho has a great grocery store with good prepared food as well for very cheap. There is a casino in Maho and a few clubs. We found club scene to be very young. Would highly recommend this location and the owners Ron and Susan as they are quick to respond and trustworthy."

  • Great House, So-So Management

    "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."

  • Beautiful setting

    "My family of six, children ages 18,16,14 and 11 stayed for a week. Great setting and we never got tired of the view. The house is spacious and the pool/deck is wonderful. The pictures are accurate. It is very comforting having a staff on site and Maureen was great. The house is on a hillside which provides the great view, so there is a bit of a steep walk to the beach. The beach at Oyster Pond is very small and we would highly recommend the beach at Orient Bay which is a short drive. Busby's is a great little beach bar with good breakfeasts. Would also highly recommend a yacht rental at SXM. Pricey, but worth it and Pinel Island is a great place for lunch. The location was great as it was also a short drive to Phillipsburg. The only minor downside of the house is that the family room was very warm even at night. It is not air-conditioned which is understandable given the shortages on the island. The ocean breezes never seemed to cool the room down which during the day didnt matter as we were never inside, but, at night it was still very warm. May have just been the week we were there. I would recommend some larger fans in that room. Suzanne was an absolute joy to work with"

  • Excellent Value ... Ideal for us

    "My wife and I spent 22 nights in this studio apartment. As indicated in all of the other favorable reviews, the location is uniquely situated with beach view from the balcony, walking distance to a super market, walking distance to the Marina Royale, plus walking distance to downtown Marigot. The amenities are accurately documented in the VRBO information. The owners are very responsive. We had the chance to meet Sylvie and Jean-Claude, and it was a real bonus to what was already a unique vacation experience. It is clear that they have successfully assisted many vacationers who have used and re-used this lovely little condo."
