Very accommodating. High marks!
Best place to stay! We were welcomed with open arms and the place was beautiful. Clean and loved the Decor. Close to a beach and Sonya checked in from time to time and gave us tips on things to do and was very accommodating to any questions. High marks for this place

Sonia is the quintessential host for this beautiful island. We went on vacation to celebrate the happy New Years and she was there to greet us with hugs, help us with our luggage and provide a very detailed tour of the unit. Sonia created a guide book of restaurants, spas, nightlife, discount codes for us to use and basic information we’d need during our stay-which was super helpful.
The unit is very clean, modern yet has shabby French chic charm, spacious and truly feels like a home away from home. Our favorite was opening up the huge window in the kitchen which gives a perfect view of the island mountains or there is another large space outside the unit that overlooks the bay. Her unit is also very spacious- I would say it can fit 3 people comfortably but has room for four, if needed. We also cooked a few times and really appreciated Sonia including all of the basic necessities like pots, plates,etc and a cappuccino machine.
Location is perfect for folks who want to enjoy the more traditional aspects of island life but also want easy access to nightlife. Downtown was just 10 minutes drive and if you rent a car it’s very easy to tour the entire island in an hour. There is a French cafe on the property, restaurant across the street, hair salon, gas station and clothing store, pharmacy and grocery 5 minutes walking down the street as well. I highly recommend the Aqua spa at the hotel just 2 minutes away-we walked there and had massages and facials.
My only recommendation is that for folks who are coming from US to bring an adapter for the outlets.
Overall, I would highly recommend staying at Sonia’s DREAM! She is the best host, perfect apartment, everything you need is really close, enjoy the true elements of the island but also can enjoy the nightlife of the more tourist-focused areas like Maho & Phillipsburg. This is a truly relaxing and unique gem with an immense amount of charm & home away from home type of feeling. We loved our stay and looking forward to staying at Sonia’s again. Thank you to her for making this an unforgettable experience.
Stay at Sonia’s DREAM, you will love it just as much as we did.

This is a perfect location that is easily accessed to both sides of the island. Sonia is a perfect host and the Dream is a welcome retreat. She has taken much pride in the decor and the comfortable accommodations. There are great restaurants and a store within walking distance. The bakery next door is delicious. I would recommend this place to anyone who visits. The view is beautiful, and the place has two beautiful pools with island/bay views. We loved our visit and the Dream was perfect for us!

Cozy and romantic
We had an amazing time in the small, cozy and romantic apartment. The apartment is located in a resort le Flamboyant and is at walking distance to a french bakery, Italian restaurant, a pool and the beach. However, other beaches, restaurants etcetera are further away and you will need a car or scooter. Sonia is a warm and welcoming person who helped with whatever we needed. It was a pleasure to stay here! Only minor thing was the noise from time to time due to renovating other apartments (no blame to Sonia!).

Modern and clean place
Sonia is the best host! She provided great instructions for our arrival and check in was a breeze. She had many helpful pamphlets and books for things to do on island. She was so great to communicate with. We forgot our US to European power adapter and she brought us one within minutes of sending her an email. The place is very modern and clean along with being nicely decorated. It has everything you need. There’s also two 24 hour pools and beach chairs along the bay that are free to use. I recommend The Dream to anyone who plans on exploring the island. Thank you so much Sonia!

We had an amazing time in St Martin at ‘the dream’. Sonia is a top noch host and really cared about ensuring everything was ok for us. She even created a little book with places to visit which was very useful and a kind attention. The flat is exactly like on the pictures, clean and welcoming.
We will come back for sure if we have the opportunity ! Highly recommended!

Home away from home
Sonia’s place is a home away from home. It’s super comfortable,f ully equipped as shown in the pictures ! Cozy, bright kitchen with glass sliding doors separating the living area. Perfect, quiet location no cars driving around. Apartment has it’s own parking lot and the property has many coconut trees you can find around to put a hammock at the night time to see the moon and stars, even catch some zzz’s if you wish lol . There is security at night walking around to make sure that everything is okay. And if you get to hot just switch on the air conditioning and relax in the apartment. Sonia is professional host ! We will be back in DREAM apartment, for sure . I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE !

Un séjour au top!!! Appartement conforme aux photos, fait avec beaucoup de goût, lumineux et très très bien équipé. On s’y sent comme chez soi: confortable et propre. Situé dans une résidence très sympa (piscines, table de ping pong, resto,…). De plus, une hôte géniale qui a été d’une aide précieuse. Super accueil, de très bons conseils sur tous ce qu’il concerne les visites, restaurants, l’île, etc… N’hésitez pas à louer cet appartement. Je le recommande vivement.

Vacances de rêve : Sonia nous a accueillis chaleureusement. Elle a pris le temps de nous présenter l’appartement et les bonnes adresses de l’île. Nous avons pu ainsi profiter pleinement de nos vacances. L’appartement est spacieux, lumineux, décoré avec beaucoup de goût. Nous nous y sommes senti rapidement comme chez nous. Bravo à Sonia pour son bel appartement et merci encore pour son très bon accueil. Nous y reviendrons très certainement.
