About Carine and David Poret

We are Carine & David a French couple arrive in 1999 in Saint Martin with our son Thibault ( he was 2 years). We found in love with Oyster Pond. We are managers of a *** vacation rental : Les Balcons d'Oyster Pond We bought some condos in this residence and we used to live in Les Balcons till 2007 where we still own some condos.

In 2007, we decided to buy our house situated at 200 meters of Les Balcons and we had our second boy, Romeo, in 2008. Our house is big but we wanted a separated cottage to welcome Carine Parent's when they come on vacations. So David built Sweety Cottage in 2010 with a private access and little pool. Carine parent's and friends enjoy it when they visit us and we rent it to guest who wants something nice and casual for their vacations. We hope that you will feel comfortable and will do our maximum

Highly recommend for a relaxing trip to St. Martin

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations are superb, with all necessary amenities , and pool with view is fantastic. Oyster Pond is a good place to be for peace and quiet, but all other types of experience on the island are not far. Carine was great at orientation (this was our first time in St. Martin) and we were never uncomfortable.....we'll definitely be back.

Lovely oasis...

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet, romantic getaway and the Sweety Cottage is perfect for that. Although part of Carine and David's home, it is very private and Carine and David are helpful and unobtrusive hosts. The kitchen is well equipped with gas stove and oven, medium size fridge, coffeemaker and toaster and a good supply of spices and cooking basics. The clothes washer comes in handy when staying for more than a week and the drying rack worked well on the front deck. There are overhead fans and a moveable fan and we only need air conditioning in the bedroom at night. The splash pool is a lovely temperature and we used it every day. Oyster Pond is a quiet area with a number of good restaurants (Mama's Pizza and Quai Ouest within 2 blocks and visited twice by us). Canoa is a 5 minute drive and on the Dutch side of the pond - was very good and needed a reservation. We were able to rent a car through the owners of Sweety Cottage and my 6 foot 4 husband fit quite nicely into the Rio Picante also a great car to park. Driving around the island we found easy as there is one main road and most places are about 20-40 minutes away. We visited Orient Bay (15 minutes), Grand Case (25 minutes), Anse Marcel (25 minutes - really liked the beach restaurant), Mariott (20 minutes and great restaurants in the harbour area). If you are looking for good food and wine in the Caribbean, this island does not disappoint! We highly recommend and hope that the cottage is not booked next time we hope to go... Thanks Carine and David!

Wonderful Experience and Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the cottage for two weeks and truly enjoyed it! We were married in St. Martin half way through out trip, and had the ceremony on Dawn Beach in front of the Westin which is less than 5 minutes away. Carine and David were very helpful and extremely nice, and made our experience at the cottage practically flawless! The cottage is centrally located; just minutes from Dawn Beach, numerous restaurants and bars, including Mama's Pizza, Daniel's by the Sea, and the Dingey Dock bar. We explored the entire island, including shopping in Philipsburg, kayaking and snorkeling at Pinel Island, more shopping in Marigot, eating in Grand Case, relaxing at Ansel Marcel, and we even took the ferry to Anguilla one day. The accommodations were perfect for the two of us, and we spent a couple of days being lazing and reading/napping by the pool. The view at night is very nice and looks over the harbor at Oyster Pond, and during the day there was always a nice breeze. We will definitely return!!!

Fabulous. Just fabulous.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Sweety Cottage. It was perfect for two and the view was incredible. We loved the dark coolness of the bedroom and slept longer each day than we had in years. The well equipped kitchen made cooking our own meals a breeze but more nights than not we hit the nearby restaurants. Our favorite's were Mama Pizza and Mr. Busby's. We love Oyster Pond and have stayed in this area on each of our four recent visits and we were so happy to find Carine and David's cozy, private retreat. Swimming after dinner and before breakfast in your own swimming pool just steps from your bed was an experience I miss everyday now. Carine and David are excellent hosts - very helpful and extremely accommodating. we are planning another visit this spring with the hopes to stay here again. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a romantic, quiet, beautiful getaway for two.

Nice little hideaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was exactly as described on this website and David and Carine were the perfect hosts. We chose this property because of it's location and it's amenities ( having our own pool to come "home" to every day was terrific).

Although the cottage came fully equipped with everything you would need for self-catering, we mostly ate out every night at some of the local restaurants ( BZH creperie and Canoa were our favourites).

We would definitely recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a nice cottage in a very private setting. It's a nice change to a hotel experience...far more relaxing.

Looking forward to our next stay in the Sweety Cottage, hopefully next spring.

The MOST ideal setting for a couple looking to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

I am honored to be the first guest to write a most deserving review of Sweety Cottage. My husband and I stayed at the cottage during the second week of April. We have been returning to Saint Martin regularly for about seven years now and find ourselves drawn the beauty and quiet of Oyster Pond year after year. This time we wanted to stay somewhere on the the Pond that wasn't within a resort atmosphere.

This cottage is just about the most perfect setting for a lovely, peaceful and beautiful vacation for a couple. The pictures are accurate and honest. The cottage is well structured and uniquely situated on the property for maximum privacy while still enjoying the views of the pond and surrounding garden area. The property and pool are extremely well maintained. The bathroom is modern and clean and the kitchen is suitable for quick, light cooking. Towels (beach and bath), the bed and linens are comfortable and clean. There is plenty of space for storage and hanging clothes.

Carine, David and Anais are friendly, considerate and a pleasure to work with from the reservation process to check-out. The cottage is located on the French side of the Pond and is a short 5 minute drive to Dawn Beach or 15 minute drive to Orient Beach. There are some local restaurants within a convenient walking distance. When my husband and I said our goodbyes, we said we'd be back soon and we mean it! I would recommend this beautiful cottage in a second.
