  • Couldn't Have Chosen a Better Place

    "We rented this villa for our family of 4, including our teen son and daughter, This was our first visit to St. Maarten, so we were nervous about every decision we made. Many times during our 10 day stay, we talked about how lucky we were to have picked the right place in the right location. Bruno and Patricia were absolutely lovely and very responsive, making themselves available to answer any questions. They met us when we arrived and the place was immaculate and just as beautiful as the pictures. It was very hot weather while we were there, but if the ceiling fan circulating the air wasn't enough to cool us (which it usually was), there were air conditioners in every room, including the living room. There was a nice washing machine and a clothesline in the backyard as well as a fold-away rack, so laundry was easy. The kitchen was well-equipped, including a few spices. Wi-fi worked well and we watched Netflix more late evenings than I'd like to admit. There was also a safe, where we stashed our passports and any cash or credit cards we didn't need. We spent quite a bit of time around the lovely salt water pool (so much better than chlorine), which they cleaned once during our stay, although it didn't really need it. It was even more beautiful at night! Orient Beach was a short walk away - maybe 5-10 minutes - so it was nice to come and go individually if we weren't all in the mood to be at the beach or to drive elsewhere. And there was a small grocery store along the way, where they were always nice, despite how pitiful our attempts at French were. (We became addicted to the fresh baguettes available there every day.) Looking at the pictures again, I'm reminded that after 10 days on the island, this relaxing villa was the hardest thing to leave behind!"

  • Great place

    "We spent wonderful three weeks in this studio in November. We are always looking for secluded, not overcrowded places and we definitely found it here. We usually met only a few people in the residence as the most of them are probably living there and working in St. Martin. So, also the pool is very relaxing and there are only a few people using it during the day. The studio is very spacious and fully equipped - it is almost the same as shown on the pictures with some small changes. The highlight is the view which is really beautiful at all times of the day. We enjoyed it very much. Having breakfast and watching the sea is a dream. All the sofas, chairs and the bed are comfortable so we really felt like at home. We used to cook by ourselves on most of the days and we found everything we needed in the kitchen. There is a small store in the residence which has the necessary things you may need upon arrival. In the evenings there is a pizzeria next to this shop which has a very delicious pizza. Another grocery store is located in Orient Village where you can walk on the beach. The beach has soft sand and it is enough long for good walks. It can get crowded during the day (depends of how many cruise ships are currently in the port) but we walked every morning and there were only a few people on the beach. We felt totally safe in the residence and also during walking outside. The local people are very nice and helpful. We really enjoyed every minute in this studio and we would ask for it again if returning to St. Martin. Martine is very helpful, we always got a quick answer if we sent an email with some questions. We didn't find any serious weaknesses during the three weeks. Thank you Martine for a great holiday."

  • Beautiful, large villa, few issues

    "When we arrived at the villa, it was stunning even in the dark! Since we rented the entire villa for ourselves, it was huge! Pauline was amazing! Very on call whenever we needed her, and we did, I'll explain later. If you want seclusion with an amazing view, this house is for you! It made us not want to go anywhere because it had everything! However, there were some things that we had issues with that people should be aware of. But even with these issues, I feel that we would stay here again since we go to SXM 1-2 times a year. We haven't found one villa on the island that is 100%, but this comes pretty close! 1. Air conditioning in one bedroom didn't work. Since we rented the whole house, we expected everything to work. 2. The two front bathrooms had sewer issues. And it only happened when it rained. It smelled the whole house like a sewer! Pauline told us how to fix the problem. I feel that this should be addressed when arriving or in the book and not have to wait for an hour for her to respond with the solution. And it happened multiple times, so that was frustrating. 3. I feel the gardener didn't need to be by your particular bedroom so early in the morning. On vacation, you want to be able to sleep late, and not get woken up by 7:00. 4. The cleaning service was great, but took some of our beach towels and never replaced them. The same with the bath towels and washcloths. I feel that if you're staying there for two weeks, everything should be there at your disposal until you leave."

  • Perfect Location

    "This really is the perfect location for a quiet and relaxed vacation it is a very short walk to the beach and lots of dining options within walking distance. Delphine's apartment had beach chairs which were so nice (it saved us lots of rental fees for chairs at the beach) the patio was private. The apartment was very clean and safe. Delphine was very easy to work with and had timely response to all my emails. I special thanks to Sylvie for helping with the easy check in and check out. We look forward to our return next year."
