Interaction with Guests
Régina would welcome you into the studio at your arrival. She would give you the key, make sure you are comfortable and would remain available if you need or miss anything.
We are at the center of the island. This is what we appreciate the most other than view, the beach at our feet, how quiet it is at night, and... and... ;) Restaurants, shops, supermarket, the nicest beaches and attractions are all close by. You are always at less than 20 minutes where you want to be!

- Sarafina, a great bakery offering croissant and café au lait is at 10 minutes walk toward the port.
- Sailing, hiking, scuba diving, parasailing, boat rental and so much more...
- There are 34 beaches on St Martin. We we come on the island we try to visit most of them, something going at 2 different ones in the same day, but we can't do them all! The ones we prefer are: Baie Longue, Baie aux prunes, Baie Rouge, Happy Bay, Anse Marcel, Galion and Pinel Island.
The studio is located at 13 minutes from the Airport by car or taxi. We suggest you rent a car near the airport on the Dutch side as the prices are cheaper. The island really worth visiting.

Beautiful apartment, tastefully decorated and plenty big enough for 2 people. The private beach was the best part of our trip, and we enjoyed every minute spent on it, or looking at it. Jipe was very quick to respond, and checking in with Regina was completely problem free. Thank you for making us feel so welcome.
Jipe and Jojo,
Thank you SO much for providing an amazing suite that exceeded all of our expectations. The suite was clean, close to everything and presented exactly as it is shown in the pictures. The location is by far the best on the island. We enjoyed many dinners in the Marina with our favorite being Le France (If you go, say hi to Lawrence and Michelina for us and say that Kathie and Jamie sent you ;) ) We also loved how close we were to the gourmet restaurants in Grand Case.
We also can't say enough about Regina who was there to greet us. She was amazing and answered all of our questions immediately. We had one very small issue with the air conditioning remote control but Regina was able to have it fixed within a very short time period.
Two things we can tell you for sure.... 1) We WILL be back to St Martin and 2) we WILL be staying at this suite again is Jipe and Jojo will have us.

Studio Marigot was a perfect location for our honeymoon! We booked the condo for 9 nights and felt like it was just enough time to see and do everything we wanted while also feeling like we had time to relax. The condo provided everything we needed (especially the beachfront waters and views!). It was really nice to have an umbrella, chairs, and beach mats provided. We didn't do much cooking, but enjoyed breakfast on the porch every morning. Regina was very helpful when we arrived and stopped by when we left to check the condo and see how our vacation was.
We rented a car and are very happy we did! We visited most of the island and really enjoyed Bay Rouge, Mullet Bay, and Pinel Island. We also highly recommend the FlyZone zip line!! We also really loved staying on the French side. The food and feel of the French side was so relaxed and perfect for what we were looking for. Our favorite restaurants were: La Tropicana (order the creme brulee!), Calmos Cafe in GrandCase (great for american/seafood), Sarafinas (BEST french pastries and crepes), and the beach bar at Bay Rouge (traditional creole).
Overall, the whole experience was amazing and would recommend Studio Marigot to friends and family! We would also go back to St. Martin…definitely the friendly island!!!

This was our first trip to St. Martin and our first Air bnb experience as well. Both were wonderful. The apartment was as described and it was great having beach mats, towels, and sand chairs provided. Everything was clean and orderly, and having breakfast on the balcony overlooking the marina was incredible every day. The Simply market was so close, and they have fresh baguettes delivered every morning and again in the afternoon about 3:30 or 4...yumm!!! The beach has some rocky areas so we were happy we brought sand shoes along. We discovered that the Beach Plaza Hotel next door was a great place to visit, and we did so often, taking advantage of the beach bar, and the lobby bar after dinners at the Marina or on the waterfront in Marigot. Our favorite dinner spot turned out to be Le France on the marina, but Tropicana and Le Gallion were also wonderful. We wanted a relaxing vacation so we didn't do much outside of Marigot. We did hike up to the fort twice, including our last evening to see a spectacular view of the sunset from there. We didn't need a rental car, but we did hire a car for a day and took a 6-hour tour around the island including a stop to see the KLM 747 arrive just after noon on Friday, and then spent an hour at Orient Beach as part of our day tour as well. Joyce Prince of (website hidden) was our hostess and she was great. We live in Atlanta so this is an 'easy' trip which we definitely plan to repeat at the soonest opportunity! Thank you so much Jipe and JoJo for having such a wonderful place in St. Martin!!
The apartment was just great! even better than the pictures and right at a beautiful beach! Just walking distance from the supermarket, Marigot city centre and many nice beatches!
The way Regina welcomed us was great, the place itself also more than fulfilled our expectations, hoping to go back soon!
thanks for having us!
We had a great stay at studio Marigot. Everything was very confenient and exactly as shown on the pictures. The place is cozy and everything you need is there. Regina is very helpfull and kind. Communication with JiPé coudn't be better. We loved the private beach right at the balcony. Nothing better than having breakfast while watching the clear blue water and white sand : ) If you rent a car everything on the island is reachable within 20 min. Beaches we loved were Baie Rouge and Ilet Pinel. The lovely food on Saint Martin made us eat too much ; )
If you ever go to Saint Martin and want a great place and good value for money, go to studio Marigot!
Studio Marigot was exactly as we had hoped - maybe even better! The studio was clean and fresh with a comfortable bed and had everything we needed for our week-long stay: dishes, cookware, beach gear, a little cooler, reusable grocery bags, information on island sights, A/C and even a proper hair dryer (which is something you don't even find in decent hotels anymore!).
The location made for a perfect home base from which we explored Marigot on foot, and we also jumped on local mini-buses to visit Grand Case, Phillipsburg and Baie Rouge. The beach just in front of the studio was clean and quiet - a great place to swim and tan and lounge - and we particularly enjoyed many evenings on the balcony.
Our experience was made all the more pleasant by sunny Regina, whose friendly greeting, recommendations and general helpfulness were simply top-notch.
