Very comfortable
Martine met us on our arrival and made sure we were comfortable for our 1 week stay. The space was clean and had a great view of a lagoon and was steps away from a sand volleyball court, restaurant, and pool. I would definitely recommend her place!
Melissa, Houston, Texas, USA Apr 2016
Perfect little place
We had a wonderful time at the studio! It was the perfect little place. We loved having the kitchen to make meals and the view of the lagoon was very nice. Pauline was also very helpful throughout our whole trip and answered any questions we had. Unfortunately, because of the time of year we visited, the bar and restaurant were closed, but there plenty of other places to enjoy! We definitely recommend this studio for anyone visiting St. Martin!

Martine was very helpful
The place was as described, and even more spacious than the pictures show it to be. Martine was very helpful with everything, and even when the toilet didn’t flush properly was quick to have it fixed. Thank you so much!
