Fantastic in every way!

  • 5 of 5

we rented sea la vie in mid-october along with another family with young children- it was exactly what we were looking for! the reservation process was so easy, we had to reschedule our original date due to the hurricane in TX affecting our flights & Scott was incredibly accommodating. the location is perfect- it's far enough west that it's away from the super touristy area, and it's a part of a really nice subdivision community that felt really secure and upscale. it's walking distance from one pool (just up the cul-de-sac, actually), and a very short golf cart ride to another pool that overlooks the beach & the beach itself. you could easily walk to the beach if preferred, but it's nice to have the golf cart when you're hauling so much stuff. the accommodations were exactly what we were hoping- the main floor master had a large bathroom, the second floor had another king bed room with a bathroom included & another room with a king bed and next door bathroom. the 3rd floor has a twin bed and 2 sets of bunk beds- our toddler loved it! all the rooms had TVs as well. there is a grill outside & the kitchen had all the equipment needed, so we ate in for the majority of meals. there's a convenience store (and pizza place) about 2 minutes down the road, there's also a close Dollar General that has a surprising amount of beach items and food. We made a few Target/Walmart/grocery store runs, which are about 20 minutes away, not bad at all. It was so great to have a washer and dryer to be able to bring home all clean clothes, one less thing to do when we returned. there were other options in the community like a gym, sauna, hot tub- which we didn't take advantage of, but was nice to have the option! we were pleasantly surprised to also have so many options at the house to take down to the beach- we brought the kids' life jackets, but they had the things we hadn't thought of- like a tent, beach mats, chairs- all stuff we couldn't have brought on the plane anyway. it was the perfect, stress-free, week with our family and friends; and we're so thankful to scott and his family for allowing us to stay. there was more than enough room for the 7 of us, could have easily had another family included as well. we'd highly recommend sea la vie, you'll love it as much as we did!

Beautiful house and location within wonderful Martinique!

  • 5 of 5

Sea La Vie was perfect for our vacation with our family. The private white sandy beach was an easy walk or golf cart ride, as were the two pools. The house had everything we needed and is impressive to "hang out" in. Also loved the screened in back porch.

Love Love Love This Beautiful Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this unit the day before Labor Day weekend and the owner was so helpful and so pleasant to rent from. The home is so big and lots of room, was beautiful and had everything you would want and more on vacation. The best thing about the unit for us was the use of TONS of beach chairs, kids toys, beach wagon, tent and so much more. Also the use of the golf cart was great. The indoor/outdoor pool is 2 doors away and the beach maybe a 2-3 minute cart ride!!!! Rent this home and you will not be disappointed.

Great beach and pools

  • 3 of 5

We had a great week with our family, and enjoyed the beach and pools a lot.

The ceiling in the kitchen had a leak that was bad when it rained. That needs to be repaired! Also, the towel rack in the upstairs bathroom was hanging loose. The air filters were so full of diust that the air conditioner was not working well. We would have liked the house to be cleaner,Too much dust everywhere.
