  • 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."

  • Kavuliak Family

    "This was our third time at Aquazen in less than three years (family of 5 with children ages 11, 8, and 5). We had again a great time. We like the house layout and modern furnishings (you can tell that Christian's wife is a designer) and its location on the water. There are little things that make this house special. Our kids love sleeping in the loft, we play games on the deck outside with beautiful views of the bay, my wife and I enjoy nespresso coffee machine for our morning dose of caffeine, Philippe is always willing to help, and I enjoy talking to Christian, the owner, when he comes to visit. The house is conveniently located with an easy access to stores, Orient beach and Grand Case (my favorite restaurant destination). It is amazing that such a small town can offer so many great culinary destinations. Unlike our last trip, this time wind was not too strong and we were able to kayak to Pinel island every day. We also had fun practicing on paddle board. For us beginners, it is great that the bay is protected and has almost no waves. Visiting St. Martin over New Year and staying at Aquazen has become a tradition for us. We are already looking forward to our next year’s trip back"

  • Wanted to stay longer!

    "My wife and I spent 14 great days in Marie's condo. The photo in the condo description is what we saw every morning as we had coffee on the deck. After breakfast we either took a walk, did some swimming, or just sat in a beach chair. We spent the day exploring, or having a wonderful lunch at one of the many lolos in the area. After dinner out, we played cards on the deck, drank wine, and listened to the surf. Thanks for sharing, Marie."

  • • We cannot wait to return

    "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."
