We had an outstanding experience staying here! Sylvie and Claude were more than accommodating around our flight times (we arrived at night and left early morning). When we arrived they gave us the layout of the area, pointed us to their favorite restaurants and bakeries and showed us where to get the bus and taxis. The place was exactly as pictured and when we arrived they kindly gave us a baguette and bottle of wine for our stay. What a great welcome!During our stay they were very accessible if we had questions even though they were out sailing for the week. We definitely plan on visiting St Martin again and plan on staying here. The marina location was perfect for us. There are five restaurants in the marina open during the low season and it's not very touristy. We loved our experience and would highly recommend using Sylvie and Claude's place to stay!
Sylvie and Claude were awesome hosts! The studio is exactly what we were expecting, gorgeous views and a very cosy space. We were very thankful for the tips about the island as well as the best places to visit! They were very accommodating to check in and check out times. (Our favorite beach was Happy Bay). We hope to visit again and stay at Sylvie and Claude's studio!!
This was our first time to St. Martin and Sylvie and Claude were excellent hosts. The studio was clean and equipped just like a home. There is a clothes iron, hot plates, coffee pot, microwave, dishes, pots & pans, air conditioning and fans making it a home away from home. We were greeting wonderfully by them in person with a bottle of wine, baguette and delicious butter waiting for us! The patio was the perfect relaxation spot with birds visiting all day long. Sylvie and Claude keep their boat right in the harbor outside so they were right there for anything we may have needed.
The condo is right by a taxi stand, fish & clothes markets plus right in the middle of shopping and dining in Marigot. It was the perfect spot to have easy access to such amenities. It was $20 USD to and from the airport and $15-16 for anywhere else we went so renting a car may not be necessary.
We can't say enough about how welcoming Sylvie and Claude were and they took time to point out places of interests on the map. They also had amble books and guides for newcomers to the island to read up on what to see and do.
We rate this experience 5 stars and preferred this way more than any hotel resort. Staying here gave us the chance to be "locals" and experience life instead of a created experience a resort would provide. We highly recommend this for couples. It has views, it's close to a lot of activity and it's perfect if you intend to do your own cooking.
Definitely coming back. - Dimas & Jimmy
Sylvie and Claude are quintessential Airbnb hosts. They are everything that makes using Airbnb great and we could not have been more impressed with their kindness and welcome.
Upon arrival, Sylvie and Claude made it easy to meet them with clear instructions and once we met up, it was off to the flat. The flat was exactly as described and perfect in every way. More than that, Sylvie and Claude spent almost an hour with us explaining the layout of the island, the best spots to visit, and the best places to dine.
Throughout the entire stay, they made themselves available to any questions we had (though we didn't have any since they gave us such great information upon arrival) and we felt secure knowing that should anything arise, Sylvie and Claude would be there in minutes notice.
I can't recommend this flat and these great hosts highly enough!
As for the details of the flat, it's situated right in the heart of Marigot at the marina with restaurants all around. It's perfect for those guests who like to know that there will always be a great selection of places to eat, who want a lovely terrace with a calm and charming view to look out upon, and having at their disposal the best hosts one could hope for.
Huge thanks to Sylvie and Claude for making this a relaxing and beautiful vacation!
The studio in Marigot was a perfect place for us to spend the week! Sylvie & Claude were excellent hosts and they greeted us with a baguette & bottle of wine. The view from the terrace was breathtaking and the town of Marigot was very charming. Great restaurants, shops, bakeries, and the Marigot market are all within walking distance. The ferry to Anguilla (amazing day trip) was also within walking distance. The place was clean, had amazing views, and came equipped with everything you need. Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer! We will certainly be back to St Martin and we would not hesitate staying at Sylvie & Claude's place again, they are wonderful hosts and the studio was perfect!
Sylvie is truly an amazing host. She greeted us as we arrived and had french bread and wine ready for us. The condo is clean, in the heart of Marigot. She also gave us great tips on where to eat, what to see. Overall I could not ask for anything better than this. Thank you so much Sylvie.
