WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU IN BEAUTIFUL SAINT MARTIN - THE FRIENDLY ISLAND!!!
Alans apt was exactly as depicted, we had a lovely time and the location was great. Bed was comfortable- wifi worked great and it was easy to find. all and all a great trip
Comfort and Convenience 5/5
Renting from Alan was a pleasant experience. With the help of his concierge service through Mrs. Isabelle, a very nice and informative lady, I was settled into the apartment shortly after my arrival. I was able to rent a car through Isa as well, which I must say is a must if you're any bit inclined to see the most of what St. Martin has to offer.
I digress, the apartment is conveniently located in the heart of Marigot. It features many of the modern conveniences that hotel suites lack and offers a unique privacy that you'd expect without the feeling of isolation. There was never a moment that I thought I was being inconvenienced, really it's like bringing your entire home with you inside your suitcase.
Within walking distance of the apartment you will find many unique stores, restaurants and well pretty much anything your heart desires. Many pharmacies, ATM and other services that you might find yourself in need of.
Finally, I don't often pay attention to decor as I don't have an eye for it. That being said, what really stood out is the attention to detail that went into putting this apartment together. There's a really nice theme that might not stand out immediately, but once you spend some time experiencing St. Martin I'd have to say that this apartment will make you appreciate your time there so much more.
Wir bedanken uns für eine wunderschöne Zeit, einen großen Dank an Isabelle für ihre klasse Betreuung. Unterkunft ist super, zentral, entpricht voll der Beschreibung und wir können dies alles nur sehr empfehlen
Alan's apartment in Marigot looks exactly as his photos indicate--clean, contemporary and bright. After a six-hour flight delay and a late-night arrival, I greatly appreciated Isabelle, the concierge, picking me up at the airport and checking me in. Initially there was a problem with the AC, but Alan and Isabelle had it repaired quickly. Alan's welcome packet for exploring the island is most helpful and I followed many of his recommendations. Downtown Marigot is lively and colorful during the day and quiet and safe at night. I was able to park my rental car directly across from the apartment every evening. For a more authentic Saint Martin experience, skip the hotels and stay at Alan's place in the heart of it all.
This apartment could not have been nicer! Right in the heart of Marigot, close to everything! Alan's Welcome packet was like having a personal tour guide with us. 6 night stay with 3 adult children, the apartment never felt cramped. I thank Alan's concierge, Isabelle, for meeting us at the apartment to drop off the keys and show us around. Also for meeting us promptly when we were ready to depart. Plenty of easy parking right in front of the apartment. We're DEFINITELY going to come back. Merci Beaucoup, Alan!
The apartment lived up to the expectations. It was clean, tidy and spacious. Alan, the owner, and Isabelle, the hostes, we're very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this apartment to friends.
Alan was very helpful throughout our stay and made sure we had a great time. His place is very welcoming and spacious. The neighborhood is very safe and in a perfect location close to everything you need. Alan is always available if you ever need anything before, during, and after your stay. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in St. Martin.
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!
