  • Beautiful Vacation Retreat, Close to Airport, Amenities and Beaches

    "My family and I stayed in the home for the week between Christmas and New Years this past year and we only have wonderful things to say about both the house and the host! The house is conveniently located within 10 minutes (driving) from the airport and is only a few minute drive to Mullet Bay, one of the island's most beautiful beaches on the Dutch side. The house is extremely spacious and looks exactly like the pictures. There were 5 of us who stayed together in the house and it was more than enough space. There are three full baths and two bedrooms, one with a king bed, and the other with two twins, as well as a queen pull-out couch. The house has it's own private pool, which is big enough for lounging in or swimming a few laps. The house is also in a fully gated community, with a full-time security guard, so we never felt unsafe. In addition to the house, the host/renter of the house is extremely responsive and helpful when it comes to planning your vacation. She will send you a guide to the island with tips that include the best beaches, restaurants, supermarkets, excursions, tips for driving on the island, etc. We had several questions before traveling to the island and she was always extremely prompt and helpful with the information she provided to us. Tips: - A car is absolutely necessary to get to the house and to explore the island. One of the most beautiful parts of St. Martin is the selection of beaches, all are different and beautiful in their own way. I would recommend a car to anyone traveling to the island. -The food is great all over the island, we really didn't have a bad meal. I would suggest bringing a small amount of cash to most beaches because they usually have beach bars and cafes that do not accept credit card and you will want to try the grilled chicken and ribs with rice. Plan at least one meal in Grand Case for some delicious French food. -Plan a snorkeling trip the water is beautiful! Otherwise, you can entertain yourself by going to a different beach everyday!"

  • Outstanding Penthouse

    "We have an annual guy''s trip to St Marten's. in the past we stayed at hotels. This year we took a chance on this penthouse. It is located on the 11 floor of a nice building located in the Cupecoy section. The property is oceanfront with a small private beach and excellent pool. Also close is a larger nice beach. The building is protected by a gate and has its own concierge. The penthouse has two stories with four separate bedroom suites, each with a nice view and private bathroom. There is a large open living room/ dining room/ tv lounge area, which overlooks the ocean. There is a full kitchen. Everything was very clean, with housekeeping several days. We even had easy arrangements for a private chef. This place is excellent and we will definitely return."

  • Location, Location, Location

    "I've just returned from a month in Catalina apartment. You could not ask for a better address in Grand Case. The apartment had direct access to the beach with a view of the Caribbean unmatched regardless of price. A few steps out the front door and you have your choice of the top rated restaurants in St. Martin. Within the block, there is a bakery, small grocer, a spa and numerous clothing and beach related shops. The apartment is as pictured with the exception of there being no TVs in the bedrooms. The kitchen is well equipped; the baths and bedrooms larger than expected. There is one correction that needs to be made to the listing. It is by no means handicapped accessible. The location is on the second floor, some 16 steps up. The beach is a second flight of stairs down from the lobby. As I have problems with mobility, it presented a daily challenge. Finally, my thanks to Phillipe who was more than helpful. When there was a problem or question he was available to solve or answer the concern. And to Jean Pierre and Isabelle who are kind enough to share this outstanding location. Merci!"

  • Two couples getaway

    "We shared this beautiful condo with another couple and had lots of room. Location of this condo is perfect - close to Grand Case, Marigot et. Even with one toilet the layout worked well. Toilet and sink in one room and shower, two sinks & clothes washer in another room. Martine was very helpful. More than once she emailed asking of we needed anything and to be sure to contact her if we had any questions. The only issue we had was no washroom at the pool. Our plane was 1 1/2 hours late so we didn't arrive at Mount Vernon until late in the evening and was very pleased to see Martine standing there waiting for us. Apparently not all owners are there when you arrive. She went as far as helping us carry our bags up to the condo. Martine and Christian are a lovely couple. We will definitely return to this condo."
