Did not have the best experience

  • 2 of 5

First, the location is perfect if you want to stay in the Grand Case area as it's a very short walk to the infamous French restaurants and boutiques. It's right on the beautiful Grand Case beach and you have an amazing view.

List of our complaints:

Cleanliness: I call this place a Mona Lisa, it has very fancy appliances and nice furnishings but it needs more care with the cleanliness, far away it looks great but up close you can see the wear and tear and stains in crevices, we just didn't feel like it was clean compared to many properties we have stayed in, the towels are old and very worn down, I believe they may air dry them because they are so rough and hard, we always wore slippers and socks because our feet would turn black when we did not, I had to throw away their cleaning rags underneath the sink because it made the room smell moldy, their sheets and blankets need better cleaning as well

2) they don't provide garbage bags, and we were lucky to find an extra toilet paper roll cause we were told we would have to buy our own

3) we left for Anguilla for a couple days and the room got broken into, luckily I had some of our valuables in the provided safe, but my iPad and expensive Bose headphones along with my backpack got stolen, which is the worse that can happen on a vacation, Beatrice did not really say much but she did mention it was the first time it happened and just to report it, but it was late already and we were leaving the next morning

Now of course it's not totally their fault the place got broken into and we are part to blame because we left the back door open, the place seemed pretty secure with a code to get in and it was located on the 2nd floor, so someone climbed to the balcony to get into the property and they knew we were gone so I'm guessing we were being watched.

We wish someone told us if we leave to close the shutters and teach us how to.

It's unfortunate this happened to us and we do take responsibility for not locking the back door.

So in a nutshell, perfect location, beautiful views but cleanliness and maintenance needs work and it's not as safe as it seems. Sorry to leave a bad review, I hate leaving bad reviews.

All you can dream about

  • 5 of 5

The location is just right, next to a fine dining and small French boutiques. The view is exceptional , apartment is everything you wish to have: one private bedroom, big sofa bed in the living room . We stayed with 2 grownup kids and it was the best from all our previous accommodations . The French bakery was 2 min walk, pharmacy and convinience store. Beach is right below, safe and well maintained building, with private access, underground garage and security code to get in. In 15 min you can be in Marigot where Sat and Wednesday they have fresh fish market . Beatrice met us in frontof the door, very pleasant . Thanks Beatrice, we will defiantly return next year .

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Blue Marine in November of 2016 for a short anniversary trip. The property is beautiful and in a wonderful location. We walked to dinner each night, sometimes on the road and sometimes on the beach. The property is clean and adequately stocked. We were met promptly and everything (including the elevator) worked perfectly. The parking all over the island is quite tight, so rent the smallest car that will accommodate your party. We had a great vacation and highly recommend this property.

Everything you could want!!

  • 5 of 5

Whenever you travel to a far away place in a foreign country, it is comforting to arrive at a place you found on the internet months earlier and get exactly what you expected!! We were so so happy with this vacation rental. The pictures gave an exact account of what this place was like. The beach was RIGHT THERE!! The view was breath-taking!! We had breakfast on the covered balcony every morning after a 5-minute walk down the street to a French bakery. The apartment was well appointed and the kitchen had everything you could want. There was also beach furniture if you needed something down at the beach. The Caribbean Sea was always warm and welcoming! There is AC in both the living area and another AC in the bedroom along with ceiling fans in both. We were always comfortable!

There was only one annoyance that I should mention. This is a 3-story property and the apartment is on the second floor. We're still able-bodied 60 year-olds and normally opt for the stairs. However, we both had heavy bags and we had to lug them up the stairs because the elevator was out. I need to mention this because an earlier review stated that they were also annoyed by the broken elevator. In response to that earlier review, the proprietor wrote that the elevator had been repaired. I guess not. And, we were there for a week and there was no on-going effort (or interest apparently) to fix the elevator. As it is, I cannot recommend this otherwise PERFECT vacation spot to people with limited mobility. If climbing up stairs is not a problem and if you are traveling light, then this is the place for you.

One more thing: the VRBO posting doesn't make it clear enough that the entire Grand Case eating establishment starts only a five -minute walk from your door. All the eating you can imagine and then some within easy, easy walking distance. Please enjoy this great property! I hope the proprietors get the elevator fixed.

Owner's Response: Hi Ted, I hope you are doing fine. Sorry for this very late response. I just wanted to thank you for this great review. I'm really sorry that the elevator wasn't working when you came. Unfortunately, we often get problems with that elevator. We did get the problem solved since ( 2 months now) i hope this time it lasts longer than when you came. The condominium did try its best to get it fixed early but unfortunately the real problem is that the only company capable of intervening on elevators here is located in Martinique (different island). They take a very long time to send someone when they are needed. Nevertheless, i'm really happy you got to enjoy your vacations here although the inconvenience. Best regards, Béatrice
