  • Hello Alan
    I thank you for being such a great host. The apartment was great and all was exactly as described. Donna and I had thoroughly enjoyed the three weeks and met and made friends with allot of wonderful local people. The weather couldn't have been better, but what disappointment to return to snow and now ice storms.
    Thank you again Alan for all your assistance and advice. We couldn't believe the work you put into the welcome package.

    Response from Alan:

    Thanks a lot Larry. It is very encouraging and much appreciated feedback! I am very pleased that you found the apartment as I tried describe it on the website. It is great to learn that during your 3 weeks on the Friendly Island you were able to make some new friends too :) I also would like to thank you for your comments on the Welcome Package I sent before your arrival to Saint-Martin. Ice storms in Eastern Canada on April 1 sounds like a very bad joke especially after the harsh Winter you already had. Sorry to hear that :( I was great to host you during your stay. Isabelle and I are very much looking forward to your next visit in Saint-Martin. Cheers! Alan

  • We stayed there for 10 great days in this nice and comfortable apartment without any surprises or drawbacks. We've found a fully equipped kitchen so breakfast or small snacks and cooking is no problem (I had a twinkle in my eyes when i first saw the italian bialetti coffee maker).
    I would recommend this accommodation at any time to someone looking for a place in Marigot - great thanks to Alan.

    Greetings Georg

    Hi Georg. Thank you very much for your kind words and positive feedback. They are much appreciated. We look forward to welcoming you again in Saint Martin. Cheers! Alan

  • We were very pleased to offer consistent with the description, perfect!!!

    Thanks for the feedback Oscar. We look forward to seeing you again in St Martin! Alan

  • Me and my wife spent the christmas holidays in Marigot and Alans apartment. There is nothing to complain about regarding the apartment, it is situated in the centre of Marigot, close to the harbour (from where you can go to St Barths and Anguilla). I strongly recommend to hire a car to get to other places on the island, the nearest beach is at Nettle Bay which is 4 km (40 min walk).

    My only complaint is regarding bath towels, we did only receive one per person and that wasn't enough for 9-10 days. We were told that the guests before us did use a lot more than expected so i'm sure it won't be a problem for future guests.

    Alan was very helpful upon arrival, his welcome package stretched out many of our question marks. I strongly recommend this apartment.

    Response from Alan:

    Thanks for the encouraging feedback Andreas. It is much appreciated! I personally rent a car myself every time I go to St. Martin as the public transports are not ideal and the taxis can be expensive. Car rentals are quite cheap on the friendly island (especially if you rent one from the airport). I also thank you for the feedback regarding the towels. I agree with you that we will need to provide at least 2 or 3 per person for stays over a week. Thanks again and I look forward to seeing you on your next visit to the friendly island. Cheers! Alan

  • The apartment was spacious for its size. Really nice modern decor.
    Clean and breezy.
    The concierge service was really helpful and an added extra that made it feel like we were getting much more than what we paid for :) there was a good supply of towels and food to start us off.
    Location is good on the French side but the traffic is ridiculous ( road work were in progression mind) it's a bit far to walk to phillipsburg. But we are young and managed to walk to some other places like happy bay in 1.5 hours and Simpson bay in about 2.5 hours. Safe part of town straight across from the police station.
    We would love to go back to this apartment if we are lucky enough to ne back in beautiful Saint Martin.

    Response from Alan:

    Thanks for the feedback Laura. It is much appreciated. I am really glad you liked the apartment and the concierge service we provided. It's nice to see that you found it useful while you were there. As the apartment is in Marigot (on the French-side of the Friendly Island), I agree with you that it is not the ideal location if you plan on spending most of your time in Philipsburg (on the Dutch-side of the island). In regards to traffic, I am asking myself everyday why the local administration has chosen the high season to start these constructions lol ... I hope these will be completed on your next visit to Saint Martin hopefully soon again. Cheers! Alan

  • Great central location especially as we didn't have a car. A few minutes walk took us to the market or to the Marina Royale. Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. Also taxi stands if we wanted a taxi.

    The apartment is a good size and has been renovated to a high standard. Beautiful television, leather sofa and perhaps the best bed we have ever slept on. Linens are of good quality (always important to me).

    Dominique was a great concierge, so friendly and helpful. She arranged a boat tour that was the highlight of our trip and told us about an outstanding restaurant that had no reviews called La Fourmi in the West Indies Mall. We also appreciated the welcome package from Alan.

    There was some food in the kitchen to start us off. The apartment was very clean and the security was reassuring.

    Response from Alan:

    Hi Sharon. Thanks for the kind words and for being such a perfect guest. I shall try La Fourmi myself has I never had a chance to go there in my seven years of frequently travelling to the island ... maybe on my next trip. I'm glad you also enjoyed the boat trip. I hope you had a pleasant trip back to Canada. You are welcome to come back anytime. Cheers! Alan

  • I spent one week in this newly furnished and very nicely decorated apartment in the very centre of Marigot. It is very quiet and comfortable. Alan sent a useful welcome package and was of good assistance if I had any question. Isabelle, who is in charge of the renting of the apartment in St. Martin is having very good advices and she is always available, also you can book trips and renting cars through her.

    The apartment is highly recommended!

    J'ai passé une semaine dans ce jolie appartement au centre de Marigot. Il est très bien situé, calme et décoré avec du goût.
    Alan m'a envoyé un welcome package très utile, avec pleines d'informations et il respondait immédiatement quand j'avais une question.
    Sur place, Isabelle est en charge de la location. Elle est toujours joignable et vous propose pleines d'endroits à visiter. C'est d'ailleurs possible de faire des bookings pour des excursions à travers d'elle ou de louer une voiture.

    Je peux recommander l'appartement entièrement!

    Response from Alan:

    Thank you Martin. It was a pleasure to have you over for a few days. I hope you visit the Friendly Island soon again. Cheers! Alan

  • Incroyable séjour à Saint-Martin, l'appartement est extrêmement bien situé, il y a toujours du stationnement et les soirées à la Marina sont féérique. La location d'une voiture permet de visiter l'île en long et en large et en vaut vraiment la peine. Isabelle et Alan sont toujours disponible et facile à rejoindre.

    Incredible time in Saint-Martin, the appartment is extremely well located, always easy to find parking and the night at the marina are memorable. Renting a car is recommanded to fully experience the island. Isabelle and Alan are easy to reach and always available.

    Response from Alan:

    Thanks for your review Martin. I'm very pleased you were able to find parking easily near the apartment. You made a great decision to rent a car to visit the many attractions Saint Martin has to offer. It makes a big difference! I also love the Marina Royale and I am really glad you got to enjoy it (it's actually one of the main reasons I chose that location for my apartment on the island). Many good memories over there for me as well lol I also thank you for being such a great guest and we look forward to your next visit. Cheers! Alan

  • Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans un super appartement où tout est parfait. Si vous allez a st Martin n'hésitez pas vous ne serez pas déçus. L'immeuble est très calme, très bien sécurisé et en plein centre de Marigot. Alan est un hôte très soucieu du bien-être de ses visiteurs.

About
I have been renting my Saint-Martin / St. Maarten apartment since completing its full renovation in September 2013 mainly to Canadian, European and U.S. travelers who wish to visit the Friendly Island for a few days or want to stay there for an extended holiday. The apartment was rented in the past few months by friendly travelers from Canada, France, Germany, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland and the USA. My goal is to provide a comfortable, spacious, clean and nicely furnished accommodation in the heart of Marigot, the capital of French-side Saint Martin. I chose this particular location for myself for its convenience on the island (taxis, car rentals, island buses and ferries within a 3-minute walking distance) and multitude of restaurants, shops and activities nearby. The apartment is fully furnished and has all the amenities of home. On a personal note, I am 43 years old and I live in Vancouver, British Columbia. Sailing is my passion especially in the Caribbean, Pacific North West and the Mediterranean. If you are a fellow sailor (or kiteboarder / kitesurfer), please make sure to mention it before booking the apartment. I hope you will enjoy Saint Martin as much as I do. Safe travels!
