Amazing stay! Séjour inoubliable!
"Great break from Canadian winter! Our first family vacations since the birth of our baby were close to perfect thanks to this amazing accommodation. The house is clean, comfortable, well equipped and we enjoyed very much the pool and outdoor facilities. The little village of Orient bay is at walking distance so is the beach. Having a car is however necessary if you wish to see the most of St-Martin. Sonia and Martial were very welcoming and helpful hosts. We recommand this proprety if you are looking for casual, relaxing and amazing vacations. Thank you again Sonia! Sabine, Simon and Alexandre
Une belle façon d'échapper à l'hiver canadien!
Des premières vacances en famille quasi-parfaite avec notre bébé de 3 mois grâce à ce magnifique logement! La maison est propre, bien équipée et nous avons bien profité de la piscine et des installations extérieures. Le village de la Baie d'Orientale et la plage sont à quelques minutes à pied. Une voiture est toutefois fort utile pour visiter Saint-Martin. Sonia et Martial sont des hôtes chaleureux,courtois et avenants. Nous recommandons fortement cette propriété si vous désirez passer des vacances relaxantes sans souci. Merci encore Sonia et Martial ! Sabine, Simon et Alexandre."

"Our family of 4, (Mom, Dad, 2 teenagers) stayed here for 2 weeks for our family vacation and we just couldn't have asked for a better setup.
I'll start with a bit about the condo itself:
The condo is perfect for a family like ours, with a master suite downstairs (privacy!), and 2 bedrooms upstairs, (1 large, one smaller) with a full bath on the 2nd floor. It also has a half bath off the living room for convenience. The balconies on both floors offer great views of the ocean, and our kids really enjoyed sitting outside and watching the yachts go by, and in the distance occasionally a cruise ship on its way to Phillipsburg. Pretty cool.
The kitchen is well-stocked with everything you need for a quick breakfast, as well as the kitchen tools you'd need to make a full-on meal, (which we did on a couple of nights). The condo has wi-fi, (which all of us really appreciated) as well as a DVD player, Bose dock and all the comforts of home. Everything was exceptionally clean and we really appreciated the little touches like abundant baskets of beach towels and brochures of local restaurants and activities.
Now for the location:
AMAZING!!! Simpson Bay Beach is a real gem. It seems to be primarily a locals beach, as it is quiet and mostly used by the folks that live or rent along it, this gives it a real relaxing and fun vibe... The beach is just a few steps from the condo, just past the beautiful pool and through the privacy gate. The sand is white, and the beach is about 2 miles long... perfect for a walk in the morning or as a perfect vantage point for taking in the incredible sunsets. (We did this most nights!)
Just down the beach to the right is a fantastic beach bar/restaurant called Karakter, which you really shouldn't miss. We spent a LOT of time there, and our teens really liked strolling down there on their own to meet up with new friends and grab a bite. It was a fan favorite all around, they have a tapas and jazz night every friday which my wife and I really enjoyed.
We had a wonderful time at this condo and hope to stay here again on our next trip to St. Maarten. It was everything we needed, and much more than we expected! Two thumbs up!"

"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."

"After reading all the positive reviews, we were sold! The reviews were all true! This is a comfortable rustic creole type home on a small elevation in a nice area of houses. A beautiful view of the ocean directly in sight from the pool deck and dining area. Two beaches within walking distance, Friars Bay and Happy Bay. This is a good base for sightseers and adventuring types. We used it as a base for relaxing, beaching and ROMANCE. Great dining all around the island, which is easy to get around, albeit pricey. A great place to relax on the deck area with a bottle of wine after a day of beaches. I would recommend it to my friends and we will come back. The owners are very cordial and helpful. I would only ask for a small music player. Thanks Veronique!"
