Lovers Studio
A fantastic time at Lovers Studio. It was a GREAT place. Probably the best value we’ve found on the island. Delphine (owner) was fantastic. The studio was furnished with everything, we needed. Very comfortable bed, good shower with plenty of towels. Very quiet and private location, but yet 5 minutes to beach, stores, and restaurants. When contacting the owner ask her for my email and i will forward any additional information needed.

Fantastic, Fantastic, Fatastic
Fantastic Vacation. Studio was more than expected. 5 minute walk to beach, store, restaurants (bars). Delphine (owner) was very professional and helpful. The bed was very comfortable, shower large and powerful (something you don’t always see), the entire studio was extremely clean. It’s hard to call this a studio because of all the covered outdoor spaces. This was the best value we have seen in our 22 years of going to sxm. Delphine has my email and I told her to forward it if requested.

Toujours autant de plaisir à séjourner à cette adresse. Nous revenons régulièrement passer 1 mois et vous recommandons vivement cette location. La propriétaire est charmante et conviviale. La location est très bien située dans un quartier résidentiel au calme , pas loin de la mer et bénéficie d’un parking privé bien appréciable. Studio bien équipé et grande terrasse avec barbecue pour faire vos poissons, langoustes ou viandes. Merci Delphine, et à bientôt. Jean-Jacques et Véronique

We spent 3 months in low season in this studio in 2016 and we are still there for 1 week at the end of January 2017. 5 minutes walk to the beach of Orient Bay, no need for car, you can do everything within walking distance. In Orient Bay you have shops, restaurants and much more. The studio is behind the hotel of the Plantation, perfectly quiet. Very clean, Delphine is adorable. Beach chairs are free with rental at Kakao beach ( good deal !! ) We return to the same studio since 1998 and it is always well and especially cheap !! 75 euros per night !! perfect for me and my wife. The others places on orient bay are more pricy, expensive, especially the hotels on orient bay. Thank you.

Good Place to stay and relax
We stay for 2 weeks in one of the studio, location is not near the beach, but within Orient Beach community. It is clean, with lots of trees and flowers surround, it’s like live in the park. Delphine (owner) is a wonderful host, very friendly and ready to answer any of our questions besides being a beautiful women. We had a great time there, the only minus TV is smaller than expected, Wi Fi was working better than in the other parts of the island. Free Kakao beach chairs is areal deal and worth $ 30 a day at the beach for 2 chairs and umbrella. We would recommend this place to any beach lover and for the relaxing atmosphere.

La location a été conforme au descriptif de l’annonce. Location située dans un quartier résidentiel avec une jolie végétation et bénéficiant d’un calme, vu emplacement en fin d’une impasse. La propriété est très propre et très bien entretenue. Le propriétaire est très accueillant ,nous a bien renseigné et a toujours été disponible. Nous recommandons sans problème cette propriété à nos proches. Nous gardons un excellent souvenir de notre séjour passé de 3 semaines et envisageons d’y revenir.

Studios très agréables !
Je suis venue sur deux périodes de l’année 2015 (Avril et Novembre). J’ai logé dans chaque studio. Ils sont très bien placés car on peut aller sur la plage à pied en 5 / 10 mn. Il y a des commerces à proximité. Le lieu en lui même est calme, joli. Accueil et prestations de qualité. Je les recommande !!!!! De plus la propriétaire (très agréable), donne des renseignements pour les activités que l’île propose. Bonnes vacances !

Un super séjour
Bien situé, quartier très sécurisé, un accueil au top, Mme Delphine a fait tout ce qu’elle pouvait pour que notre séjour se déroule au mieux. Tout ce qu’il faut pour passer de bons moments. Plages et restaurants très accessibles , petite préférence pour “le piment” restaurant situé sur la place du village où nous nous sommes régalés avec leurs plats, cocktails et leurs ambiance chaleureuse. Un grand merci pour votre sympathie et votre bonne humeur.

Friendly Delphine
Friendly Delphine welcomed us in this charming bungalow, located in the very heart of Orient Bay. Cleaning is done regularly and value for money is excellent. Only downside, the bedroom is a bit small. La sympathique Delphine nous a acceuillie dans ce charmant bungalow, situé au coeur même d’orient Bay. Le ménage est assuré régulièrement et le rapport qualité prix est excellent. Seul Bémol, la chambre est un peu petite
