The Nettlé Bay is ideally located in the French area close to several beautiful beaches: Red Bay, Plum Bay, Longue Bay and Mullet Bay (my favourite). It is only 2 km from Marigot, the French capital, with its 2 marinas and restaurants that specialize in local dishes (or others!). You can head to Grand Case for the nightlife and the many restaurants, gourmet or children-friendly; the Calmos Café is a must-see on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
In the Dutch area, you will find many casinos, night clubs and tax-free boutiques in Phillipsburg, the Dutch capital. You must also go to Sunset in Maho close to the airport to view the amazing sunset, and also to see the planes land over the large neighbouring beach. A show is guaranteed!
The postal address given on this site is not right. This flat is located Nettlé Bay, french side, near Marigot. Conversely, localisation on the map is correct.
Awesome experience! Isabelle (Danielle's assistant) was very helpful with her advice on the best spots on the island (beaches, restaurants, etc). Spotless, beautiful apartment. The sunset view from the terrace was amazing. Very safe neighborhood. Close to everything (with a car): supermarket - 5 min, Friar's Beach, Mullet Bay, Plum Beach ~15 min. Maho Beach / Airport: 20-25 min. French bakery with fresh baguettes and croissants - 2 min walking distance.
This is THE place to stay if you're visiting St. Martin.
Mary and I were very and happily pleased when we arrived at Sun Set, Danielle's Amazing Duplex with Panoramic View, on the La Flamboyant property. Her agent, Isabelle, showed us the accommodations and reviewed a booklet of attractions, restaurants, and suggestions of what to do in our two weeks on St. Martin's. The view is spectacular and the openness of the entire apartment -- both floors -- allowed us to enjoy constant soft breezes day and night. We did not use the air conditioning, instead enjoyed the swirl of beach air. The porch is quite comfortable as is the living room, which we seldom used since we spent most of our "at home" time on the porch where we ate every meal. The kitchen is well equipped and a delight to use; the refrigerator is more than adequate for vacation beverages and food; nice to have the dishwasher, too. The bedroom has a lovely vista onto the porch and the upstairs bedroom has a grand view as well. Full baths on both floors; bath and beach towels provided. Our adult daughter and her husband joined us for a week and used the upstairs bedroom and bath; never felt crowded, very comfortable for four adults. We made full use of the many ceiling fans in every room; having a clothes washer was a welcome bonus. Sun Set is very clean and well-maintained.
The lagoon beach and swimming pool are steps away and attractive; great places to relax after day trips on the water and sightseeing. Ocean beaches are nearby.
Marigot is 10 minutes away by car and has shops and open air markets for fresh produce and seafood and souvenirs. Simply Market is two minutes away and has wide range of food, meats, cheeses, fresh produce, staples, beverages, etc., and nice deli. A larger French U Super Market is In Marigot; all meats are packaged and there is no deli, but otherwise has a good selection. A lovely bakery is a two-minute walk from Sun Set. Internet connections on the entire island are spotty; WiFi is available via La Flamboyant office and pool and at times in the Duplex; again, it's an island short-coming.
A vehicle (rental car) is necessary for seeing the island attractions, beaches and shopping. We drove mostly in daytime since the roads are not lighted and the motor bike, moped and motorcycle riders are reckless. Plus we wanted to see the lovely sunsets and enjoy dinner on the porch. Sun Set also has sufficient chairs and kitchenware to invite friends for dinner, etc. And, it is such a lovely setting for entertaining. We plan to return . . . and soon, we hope!
Tim and Mary Gorman Our stay was 17-31 January 2015.
Thank you very much Tim and Mary ! I am happy you enjoyed your stay in my duplex and in St Martin ! I will see with Isabelle about our recommendations. I thought there was CNN TV channel but maybe I'm wrong ! Anyway you are very welcome whenever you want (or can) :)
Thank you again for coming
We stayed here for a week with our two small kids and would definitely go back. The owner is very friendly and reliable. She wasn't there when we came, but we were welcomed by a rental service and they are also very kind. She took the time to explain the nice spots on the islands and gave us tips on what to do (with the kids). The house is well equiped, from kitchen to bedroom. The basic kitchen stuff is all there, bakery and supermarket are nearby. The swimmingpool at the complex is great for kids.
After some days we had problems with the airco. After we called the rental service they immediately sent someone to fix it. It seems that we didn't use the airco in the right way (too cold), so we do recommend to make an instruction on hoe to use the airco ( and how not to use it -:)). But they handled our problem very well, thank you for that.
So, if you are looking for a nice, spacious and well equiped appartment, well located on the island, then this is a perfect choice.
Many thanks Kim for your comments. I really hope you'll come back again ::)) !
As regards instructions for use of all equipment, they are located in the cupboard above cooking top and hood. But I will check with the youg woman in charge of the apartment.
Thanks again for coming.
