Fabulous Week Chez Martine!
My husband and I spent a fabulous week in Martina’s place in Sint Martin. Highly recommend her place!
Brenda, Chicago, Illinois, USA Jan 2017
Would stay again a heartbeat
I had a fantastic stay at Martine’s apartment. She was incredibly responsive to all my questions and was very accommodating with my flight schedule. I had all the info I needed well in advance of my arrival and Martine was waiting for me outside the apartment as my cab pulled up. The apartment was immaculate and very comfortable — and exactly as described. The patio was a real treat. I didn’t rent a car (though Martine offered to help out with that) but for a shorter stay, everything you need is in walking distance, including a small supermarket and several restaurants. And you can walk across the street in the morning for French pastries. The beach is a five-minute stroll from the apartment and Martine’s place is located near one of the best parts of Orient Beach. You can choose where you want to sit on the beach and pay around $10 to rent a chair and umbrella for the day. I felt incredibly well taken care of by Martine and had an amazing vacation at her place. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great location!
Great location by orient beach! Martine met us at the airport, too, which made the check in process much easier.

Fantastic long weekend
We had a fantastic long weekend at Martine’s place. We were visiting our parents who stay on Orient Beach in the summer and the location was perfect. There are places for coffee and croissants in the morning right across the street and you are just a few steps from the beach. We would definitely stay here again upon our return – so easy and convenient. And we highly recommend the restaurant right around the corner, Le Piment!!

Wonderful time
We had a wonderful time in Orient Bay. The apartment was decorated very nicely.

Lovely flat
Stayed in February 2016 — Lovely flat near the beach. In a quiet block. It has all you need – including a hairdryer! Magazines about the island (which are in the hallway) were helpful. The kitchen has everything you would need – kettle, coffee machine etc. Good size fridge too. The Air conditioning is also good. Doesn’t have WiFi but there is a lovely cafe across the road which does have WiFi so you can always pop over.

Loved her place
Stayed in February 2016 — Martine was on time picking us up from the airport and even waited for us when we had issues with our package claim. I was able to contact martine via email and she responded quickly. Loved her place and how close it was to the beach. I’m very picky and I recommend this place!
Rocio from New YorkFeb 2016
Very nice experience
Stayed in February 2016 — We had very nice experience. Apartment newly renovated, close to beach and restaurants. Would go back again.

Perfect Studio for a good price
Stayed in February 2016 — (translated from Dutch) In summary: a perfect studio for a good price. The owner, Martine, was very friendly. They picked us up at the agreed time at the airport and guided us to the studio. On arrival we found a clean studio. Everything was there to meet the basic need: a clean bathroom with shower and toilet, a small kitchen with basic kitchen utensils, a decent bed and sitting area outside. Please note that the studio does not have wifi, but we felt really great to just be able to “relax.” The studio is not intended to spend in the whole day. It is much more focused on couples (2 people) that use the studio as a base to explore the island or just relax on the beach at Orient Bay. Shops and restaurants are next door and the beach is 2 min. Walking distance. The studio is located in the community of Parc d’Orient Bay, 10 minutes from the famous village of Grand Case (known for its good and cozy restaurants). If you want to explore the island is advisable to rent a car. This can also be rented at Martine. We had a good car (Kia Picanto) for an acceptable price.

Très agréable
Stayed in January 2016 — Séjour très agréable dans un studio refait à neuf, joliement décoré et propre. Nous reviendrons volontiers.
Robin from FranceJan 2016
Great Stay
Stayed in December 2015 — We had an absolutely great stay at Martine’s studio ! The studio is perfectly located at orient bay at only 50 meter from the beach. The studio is brand new and is decorated very modern and has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. We cooked every evening and got groceries from the Simply market which is only a 5 min drive away. Opposite the street there are some nice cafes and bars for breakfast and drinks in the evening. We have stayed at quite a lot of places and this is definitely one of our favorites!
