  • Relaxing and peaceful property

    "We were here March 2016. Group of 4 adults. 1st time not using an all inclusive resort. Large 2 bedroom + loft unit. Very spacious, clean, and unbelievably quiet. We couldn't believe how the only sounds we heard were the waves of the ocean. View from 2nd floor balcony was beautiful. Even though there is a parking lot in between the condo and the beach, you can't see it through the landscaping and it isn't used at night. The view from the bedrooms balconies were of the mountains and the surrounding village. All of us thought the beds were incredible! Clean. The unit had all we needed and the manager Julie answered all our questions quickly and effectively. We asked for a BBQ and she got one. The loft would only be good for children as it is open concept into the living room / kitchen area so sleeping in the a.m. would be difficult if that was a need. We had a cleaning lady come in once and she did a great job. We wish we had more towels in between the once visit. There is a washing machine but we didn't end up using it. Parking included. Building is very safe and is locked on all sides. We wish we had been given 4 keys instead of 2 as difficult when we were going back and forth to the beach at different times but not a huge deal. The pool is small and walled in without a view. You would never use it during the day as there is no wind and the area gets very hot. We used it at the end of the day for a cool off. The beach is beautiful (with the exception of some minor seaweed but we know that this is common throughout most if not all the Caribbean right now). It's in a relatively quiet area of the Orient Beach scene but a close walk if you need more action and about 15 minute walk to the nude beach (which is calmer as its in a bay). We weren't happy with the service at Waikiki Beach which provided the chairs/umbrellas as part of the condo deal. They NEVER came and asked us for service (drinks or food). They would only serve the customers of Waikiki and we weren't allowed to sit in the more comfortable chairs. They would take the umbrellas away at 3:30/4:00 if the cruise customers had left as they wanted to go home. The bathrooms at Waikiki were gross!!!! We saw staff using the chair sheds to have sex with tourists! Thank goodness we were a short walk to our condo. Night life is quiet. A short walk to the Village - pricey but good. They take US dollars at par at most places which was good for us instead of Euro. Highly recommend Princess Eden unit!"

  • Best value on the island!

    "This was our 2nd visit to La Martiniere; our 1st was in 2012 for our St. Martin wedding. We loved it then and loved it even more now! We have stayed at 10 different villas on the island, and La Martiniere clearly offers the best value. In addition, the Family Jouy are so hospitable, thoughtful, kind, and generous. We will continue to come back to La Martiniere as long as it is available. The location is excellent, the view amazing, the pool fabulous, and the villa has everything you need including a blender to make your own Pina Coladas, toys for the pool, washing machine, and a hammock(which my wife adores). Thank you Family Jouy!!!!!"

  • Great view and location in cul de sac

    "Just got back to the Canadian winter...Stayed with my husband in January to celebrate his 60th Birthday. We have rented many Villas around the world, found pictures to be accurate, booking and communication process first class. Greg the concierge was super helpful and assisted us in booking the most amazing couples massage in the privacy of our villa deck with the sea as the backdrop. Villa is very private and secure and has all you need for a villa and beach vacation. Highlights to note were the wild horses seen grazing on the hill just 20 feet away from the deck, location is optimal in cul de sac which has several good restaurants, a grocery store, pharmacy and 5 to 10 minutes to several beaches. A car is necessary to get to the beaches but if you are ambitious you can walk into the Main Street of cul de sac in about 15 minutes. The only negative to share are the Mosquitos. Despite taking all precautions including spray and coils the bugs were relentless inside and outside the villa deck. I was bitten well over 100 times which made the stay for me less enjoyable overall. As for day trips we visited Pinel Island by kayak (our favourite day), Anse Marcel, Friars Bay, Happy Bay, Orient Beach, Grand Cayes, Grand Case, and le Gallion. Best swimming beaches by far are Pinel and Gallion with shallow calm clear waters. We also spent a couple days just lounging by our pool in the sun. Cul de Sac restaurants we reco are Al Dente (best restaurant on the island) Villa Pizza and Pancho. We tried every restaurant in cul de sac and all are good. We would highly recommend this villa and loved the Island of St. Martin."

  • Paradise Found!

    "We come from Belgium and we decided to visit St Marteen We chose this location due to its wonderful view and the proximity of the beach!! Our vacation in St. Martin was brought to another level due to the amazing time we had in this location. We would like to recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful couples break. The views were absolutely breathtaking! We would just sit and watch the sunsets and listen to the waves each evening. The apartment was well maintained, clean and previous pictures were accurate. . Bruno has for mission to make sure that all guests are looked after from the time they arrive to the time they leave. We would like to thanks him We had a rental car, and it was great to have a parking spot right in front of the apartment. There is also a great supermarket just a few minutes drive down the road. We will be back again next year , for the second time!"
