Excellent property in good shape despite Irma
There's still a lot of damage in St. Martin that hasn't been repaired (more than we expected), but this excellent property wasn't damaged and is in very good shape. The villa has all the conveniences and the deck is especially great. It's very big with a wide variety of chairs and tables, with some in the sun and some in the shade (one covered area with a dining table and another area under a tree).
The only problem during our stay was that the Internet service died or was very intermittent. (This wasn't a problem with the WiFi in the villa. It was a problem with the ISP providing service. Welcome to the Caribbean! On our last visit, before Irma, we lost electricity for half a day.) Phillipe, the owner, arranged for his friend and neighbor to let us have access to her network, so we had service good enough for email and downloading the newspaper. (Perhaps we shouldn't care so much about having Internet service on vacation, but we do.)
Despite all the damage, there's enough of St. Martin operational to make for a great vacation. One of our favorite beaches (Le Galion) has lost all its facilities (chairs, umbrellas, etc.), but our other three favorites were in full operation (Oriental, Friars Bay and Pinel Island). Some of the restaurants in Grand Case are gone, but we enjoyed dining on the beach and found the food served there surprisingly good.
For groceries go to Price Leader (biggish discount place) and the smaller Cocci market (which has the right size coffee pods for the espresso maker in this villa).
Beautiful house and great view
We absolutely loved this house.
The view was beautiful, location was great.
The island is rebuilding and certain places are still closed but we saw so many contractors that St Martin will be better than ever.
Wonderful house, wonderful island
Perfect place for my family. Kayaking around the bay was great, short car rides to beautiful beaches, and grand case at night. The neighborhood felt very safe, and the house provided every thing we needed, and the large deck provided plenty of space to hang out in the sun. We really enjoyed the French side of the island and the French cul-de-sac specifically.
loved it in every way
great location, beautiful house nicely appointed with everything you would need during your stay. I have nothing but wonderful memories of our stay there
