“Secluded artsy beauty”

This place far surpassed our expectations! The pictures are totally accurate. The property is amazing. The only drawback for some, may be the secluded location. It is about a 10 min drive from the nearest restaurant or store. You can walk 10 mins to a beautiful beach though. DO NOT TAKE A TAXI, they charged us $50 one way, from the airport to the property. Do yourself a favour and rent a car from the airport.

This place is better suited to those who want their privacy, and who may want to cook their own food. They have a beautiful outdoor kitchen, gas stove, top of the line appliances, gorgeous pool bar setup. The rooms are very clean, and large. The best room is the one with the ensuite bathroom (blue tile in photos). You have a private patio, with an enclosed mosquito screening. It is gorgeous. The grounds and gardens are so picturesque. Flowers, trees, banana trees everywhere. It really looks like a movie set!!!

The property has 3 totally separate cabana like rooms, with a pool in the middle, and the outdoor kitchen and communal sitting area. The owner, Norma, is an artist, and has a beautiful art studio on the property. She is very friendly and helpful, but does not crowd you. I would highly recommend this property, as long as you are ok with not being in walking distance of any stores. Even though the island is small, and the actual distance is not so far, the traffic is slow, and the top speed on the roads is like 30 mph, because of speed bumps and winding roads. It is about a 15 -20 min drive to the airport, and 30 mins from the main strip with the Soggy Dollar bar - THE BEST BAR ON THE ISLAND!!!

“Authentic Carribean Get-Away & Best Deal on French Side”
Reviewed August 13, 2011 for a stay in September 2010

I stayed in this amazing St. Maarten property with my 12-year old daughter. We stayed in the absolutely charming bedrooms (beautifully decorated) that share a bathroom. We loved everything about staying here. Though we went to the nearby pristine beaches and enjoyed this exclusive Terres Basses French neighborhood, we almost didn't want to leave the property. My favorite spot was a lounge area with just the perfect breeze overlooking the pool and lush landscape. When tired of lounging you could get a drink at the kitchen bar also at the pool. My daughter wouldn rarely get out of the pool, but after some resting, and some chating on the computer, she took some lessons at the impressive large painting studio of Norma, the hostess. The hostess is a great spirit and makes you fell super comfortable.
Next we'll come with my husband and son, and I am sure they will not want to leave this place either....
