  • 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."

  • Owner Helpful

    "Great quiet beach location - and a short walk from excitement. Owner was helpful to make everything smooth for us. Facilities were very acceptable and clean. As advice: this is not a resort-like vacation spot and it's expected you look after yourself. Rental car is helpful but if necessary you can find most of what you need 1/2 mile down the beach."

  • 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."

  • wonderful

    "We stayed for two weeks in this studio.Everthing was exactly as advertised. The mangers met us at the arranged time.They helped us with our luggage etc.The unit was very modern and spotlessly clean.The studio had absolutely every thing we required for a wonderful stay including a very comfortable bed.The view was great as it is a ocean view with a clear view of the ocean.Pool was exceptionally clean. The internet worked flawlessly. A-C and all other appliances worked great.We would highly recommend this studio to anyone. A car is handy to go shopping spree there is nothing within walking distance. All communications with the owner where very timely. Our Deposit was returned on the morning of departure .We will return here again."
