Tout confort
Nous avons été très bien accueilli par Sonia, le logement correspond complètement à la description dans un quartier sécurisé non loin de la plage. La piscine est bien agréable, tout le confort pour un séjour balnéaire. A noter que Sonia avait prévu pour notre arrivée de quoi prendre un petit déjeuner le lendemain matin ainsi que des boissons au frigidaire…Un “plus” bien agréable quand on débarque de l’avion. A noter pour profiter du séjour, la voiture est un plus et Sonia peux vous donner une adresse d’un loueur très sympa. Nous avons également en plus apprécié la proposition de Sonia de laisser nos bagages à son domicile le temps de profiter des dernières heures de notre séjour avant le décollage. Une adresse que nous recommandons.

Amazing stay! Séjour inoubliable!
Great break from Canadian winter! Our first family vacations since the birth of our baby were close to perfect thanks to this amazing accommodation. The house is clean, comfortable, well equipped and we enjoyed very much the pool and outdoor facilities. The little village of Orient bay is at walking distance so is the beach. Having a car is however necessary if you wish to see the most of St-Martin. Sonia and Martial were very welcoming and helpful hosts. We recommand this proprety if you are looking for casual, relaxing and amazing vacations. Thank you again Sonia! Sabine, Simon and Alexandre Une belle façon d’échapper à l’hiver canadien! Des premières vacances en famille quasi-parfaite avec notre bébé de 3 mois grâce à ce magnifique logement! La maison est propre, bien équipée et nous avons bien profité de la piscine et des installations extérieures. Le village de la Baie d’Orientale et la plage sont à quelques minutes à pied. Une voiture est toutefois fort utile pour visiter Saint-Martin. Sonia et Martial sont des hôtes chaleureux,courtois et avenants. Nous recommandons fortement cette propriété si vous désirez passer des vacances relaxantes sans souci. Merci encore Sonia et Martial ! Sabine, Simon et Alexandre.

Très accueillant et chaleureux
Stayed in March — Appartement confortable, propre avec piscine et petit jardin pour y relaxer et sécuritaire. Le seul point négatif: Loin de la plage pour le faire à pied si vous n’avez pas de location de voiture. Comfortable apartment, clean, swimming pool and small garden to relax. Safe. The only drawback: Away from the beach, to get there on foot if you do not have a rental car.
