Perfect for 2

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I absolutely loved our stay in the Papaya Studio. It is perfect for 2. We are already discussing our next trip to SXM and plan to stay with Armelle & Philippe, assuming the studio will be available.

The studio is well-equipped with just about everything needed. I won't go on and on repeating what every other review has already detailed. But if you choose to dine in from time to time as we did you'll have everything needed to do so. The king size bed is very comfortable. The furniture on the private terrace is great. That space is great for relaxing, reading, etc. The size is nice and it's private. It was clean and tastefully decorated, very clean and crisp!

The studio itself is located 1 story above ground level, which is what we prefer. The description was confusing to us because it is described as 1st story. Maybe it's different down there but it is most definitely an upper floor studio IMO. That makes it more private and that's why we prefer it. Sleep with open windows, for example.

Armelle & Philippe were perfect hosts. They were extremely friendly & gracious. They were available if needed and respected our privacy when not. They are a charismatic couple.

There are conveniences aplenty within walking distance. These include restaurants, convenience stores, the patisserie which sells wonderful baked goods, breads and sandwiches. There are larger grocery stores nearby but a car is needed to get to and from. Here's a tip...we bought a $20 bag of nice shrimp and cooked it up so we had nice snacks for a couple days that were much healthier than your chips and dip. They can be cooked without much fuss or mess. We also bought baguettes at the patisserie and made our own sandwiches with Italian meats from the grocery store for the beach.

Speaking of beaches...Plum Bay, Rouge Bay and Long Bay were our favorites, all very close to Nettle Bay Beach Club. Rouge Bay has a couple food and beverage bars, Plum Bay and Long Bay no services but are quite private. You'll feel as though you're trespassing because you need to go through a security check point but all is good, just tell them you're going to the beach and no worries. Watch the waves, they may look harmless but if off your guard they can wipe you out. Do not turn your back on an incoming wave. Rather, dive into it.

Thank you Armelle & Philippe for sharing your wonderful studio with us. We very much look forward to staying with you again!

Perfectly Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

First time to the island and our perfect little studio at Nettle Bay Beach Club was ideal. The studio has a lovely view of the ocean, large outdoor space, ideal location and all the amenities of home. The studio is very well appointed, everything u need for a wonderful stay. The location is close to everything, bakery across the street, wonderful restaurant next door and a few beachfront bars just down the street. A car is a must, Saint Maarten is such a beautiful island you do not want to miss any part of it.

Armelle and Phillipe were ideal hosts, greatly appreciated their island tips.

Enjoyed the island and all it's beauty, especially enjoyed the studio.

Looking forward to returning to VRBO #1135608 in the next few years.

Cozy Nook in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Nettle Bay. Condo was very nice, clean ,had a wonderful breeze and gorgeous view of Nettle Bay. walk out of the condo right onto the beach, you can snorkel right off the beach. Armelle and Philippe provided great service and wonderful people. The restaurants were close and convenient. Recommend renting a car to see this beautiful Island. Can't wait to come back.
