  • Excellent Property

    "We are two couples who spent a week at the end of June at this great property. The condo is better than the pictures! It was easy to find from the airport. The area across the street from the condo are inhabited by very friendly locals. When we arrived, Gordon, the property manager, was there to greet us and gave us all kinds of great advice and showed us around the unit. A VOIP phone and a cell phone are provided for your use. The unit is well-equipped with fans and air-conditioning. The view out the back is fantastic. The beach is small in front of the unit, and you can snorkel around if you enter the water with some caution due to the large rocks. Just down the beach a little bit is a nice swimming area. There are a number of restaurants as you walk towards the airport that are nice to walk up to. Karakter Beach Bar was a nice treat and we had brunch and dinner there. Everything is within 40 minutes driving or less. All the previous reviews are spot on when it comes to the information. Everything is provided and more at Bella Mare. Be sure to take the advice from Gordon and Jill (who we worked with to book the condo). They had fantastic information and made the trip so much easier. Jill helped with booking a car which made it a lot easier for us. WHEN we come back, we will definitely stay at Bella Mare, again."

  • Perfect Place to Relax in Comfort on Vacation

    "This was our third vacation in St. Maarten and the first at AquaMarina. The unit and grounds are as advertised; just bring your swim suit and sun glasses as Bruce & Joyce have equipped the unit with everything you need!!! We will definitely be staying here on our next visit to the island and recommend to all couples looking for a quiet place to relax while still being close to the beaches & restaurants. Thanks Bruce & Joyce The Jackson's"

  • Anniversary Oasis

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was more than happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Firstly Island Properties were extremely easy to deal with. A representative met us at our car rental company and escorted us to our villa which was a nice touch. The drive up to the villa is very steep and takes getting used to to drive up but that view is so worth it! The villas is just as described and looks just like the photos. The location was great if you are looking to be in a quieter area and don't mind driving 20-30 minutes to get to the busier shopping and dining areas, Oyster pond has a couple of really great restaurants and they are just down the hill about a 5 minute drive. The only slightly negative thing I would say about the villa is that our use of the upper deck and pool deck was limited due to cleanliness of the areas (a good power wash is needed...we got out the mop and tried to clean it ourselves but the hose was broken and never really felt clean). All in all it was a beautiful place to relax after a day of sightseeing and would recommend it to our friends and family."

  • Nothing like this Beauty

    "if you're thinking twice...DONT....trust me, you will not be disappointed. PROS: The view was absolutely breathtaking. The house was beautiful, everything was so unique. The master bedroom has a twin bed, which was very comfortable for our 12 year old. Each room has air conditioning. The market surprisingly had a lot of the foods and snacks that we love and it's about 5 minutes away. There are also some absolutely delicious restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner that are less than 5 minutes away, driving. Bruno and Corrine are such hard workers and were such a delight. My travel party included my 12 year old, husband, 2 of our best friends and my mom. It was just perfect. Bring your own snorkel gear as there is a ladder that leads to the sea and there is plenty to see. You will catch cruise ships coming and going. At night, the stars look amazing. Lizards and Iguanas for your viewing pleasure throughout the property. CONS: Mosquitoes were quite prevalent. We spent a lot of money purchasing mosquito repellent but I guess the mosquitoes loved me. I was bit at least 40 times. Thankfully, my daughter didn't get bit, probably because she stayed in the pool. My husband only got bit a few times. SUMMARY: All in all, I would stay here again, no question. La Calanthe is very Tranquil, peaceful, clean and absolutely stunning. I recommend a rental car. We've traveled to many places and often do not rent cars and rely on cabs, however, if we had taken a cab everywhere, we would have spent a ridiculous amount of money. Seriously, if you don't rent a car, you should probably plan on staying in your home or resort. The directions to get around are very easy, Surprisingly. Very Private! I can't wait to go back."
