Better than All-Inclusive resort Suite
"We stayed here from 04/04/15 to 04/11/15. This was my first Vacation Rental booking and one of the best vacation experiences I have had.
We met up with Gordon for a quick property orientation with valuable recommendations. After the orientation, we immediately went to Le Grand Marche (Supermarket) in Cole Bay and bought groceries and essentials. There are grocery stores nearby but if you have a car and want to save money, Le Grand Marche in Cole Bay is your best bet. Liquor is very cheap in Le Grand Marche.
I love the kitchen, fully stocked and with very sharp knives. Good blender for Piña Coladas or any frozen drinks. I’m a foodie and I love cooking; the kitchen was perfect for me. Place is very clean and neat. Very comfortable bed, my wife and I slept like babies. Waking up and walking out to the terrace and seeing the catamarans, sailboats and yachts docked was a bonus in terms of relaxation. We enjoy the beautiful sunset as well.
We felt very safe and the people around the area are friendly. There are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby including a McDonalds.
During the week we drove to The Rainbow Café in Grand Case for lunch, to Riu for a day pass in Anse Marcel, Maho Bay, Mullet Bay and Little Bay. Don’t Bother with RIU day pass, skip it and go to a nearby beach club instead.
If you don’t mind cooking and love great accommodation then don’t waste money on All-inclusive resorts or over price hotels with mediocre accommodations. In fact, Paradise Beach was a much better place and deal than one of Sandals Resort I went to. And if you are planning to stay in the new Riu All-Inclusive resort in St. Martin, you will most likely spent more than double the amount for a week stay just because food and beverages are included, and the type of room will most likely be a tiny garden view. That’s double the amount plus tax. That’s insane! Just cook your own food, buy your own alcohol, make your drink, and once in a while dine out. The experience will be much better and cost effective.
Please note Internet service in the island is slow and at times not reliable, both on the Dutch and French side. Good enough to browse, read and send emails.
I highly recommend this place and definitely come back to this place in a heart beat!
Thank you Jill for making our vacation perfect! Thank you, Gordon for the valuable recommendations."

"We just got back from our wonderful stay here at Terre Basse. The location is amazing and you would never have to leave except to get groceries!!. Very private views amazing, especially sunset. Sharlene was good about checking on us during our stay.
We rented car to check out island. Best restaurants are on French side.
The home was very comfy and had everything you would need at your finger tips. The only way you could improve is if you included us on your trip.
This place is GREAT!!!!!"

"My husband and I spent an amazing 10 days at Tony and Brent's condo at the end of February. This condo is just as described, in the perfect location and excellent for two people. We never had any issues with hot water or shutters or the sun. The view from the balcony was breathtaking and a wonderful place to enjoy my coffee and our bloody Mary's every morning. The directions sent to us were very accurate and brought us right to Mt Vernon and the condo. Our days were spent on Orient beach and we drove to Grand Case in the evenings for wonderful dinners. I always felt safe on the property as my husband even dropped me off and went to park the car at night. We did see security people on the grounds and never felt unsafe. We wouldn't hesitate to return to this condo in paradise...."

"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."
