There aren't words in the English language that can accurately describe how wonderful Luc and his wife are as well as their property. Set in a secure part of town, up in a mountain overlooking the bay to the west, this property is sure to blow your mind away and comes at a great value. My girlfriend and I loved returning to Luc's home each night during our stay, walking through a private path of local flowers and plants that had a different feeling than when you're stuck at a hotel. I loved staying here and if/when I return to St. Maarten, I will make sure I book Luc's home. Stop looking and just book.
Luc & Lou are exceptionally nice people. The room was as described with nice sitting area by the pool and wonderful views from the patio/pool area. Location was excellent, 5 or 10 minute drive to Marigot, Simpson Bay & Maho areas. We frequent the island often and were still given new places to visit from Lou. A bit of a language barrier with Lou but we managed to get by.
Very nice and clean room, looks just like in the pictures. The view from the pool area is brilliant. Luc and Lou are great hosts and we got several good tips for great restaurants to go to.
The house is located in a great spot good for exploring the island, right about in the middle between Marigot / Grand Case and Philipsburg (make sure to rent a car though!).
Would definitely go back again!
Incredible stay! This was our first experience using airbnb and we can only hope that our future stays are this good. Luc and Lou were superb hosts and the room provided is everything as advertised - and more. Their home features a beautiful sunset view in the hills of Cole Bay and the privacy afforded is incomparable for the price point. The location is ideal for exploring both the Dutch and French sides of the island. We also felt incredibly safe during our stay owing to the gated/guarded community (sadly, St. Maarten's crime situation has significantly worsened in recent years). Both Luc and Lou provided excellent recommendations and critiques of our vacation plans.
The only issue we encountered was the relentless mosquitos that come with the hillside location. Owing to our city-slicker naiveté we made the mistake of sleeping the doors open one evening which resulted in waking up covered in mosquito bites. Lesson learned, and following Lou's advice, we had no more mosquito issues.
Phenomenal room and exceptional hosts - you should not hesitate to stay here if your travels take you to St. Maarten.
Thank you Brandr for your excellent report. We hope to see you again to have a good dinner in one of the excellent restaurant of the island.
we had a great 3 day stay at luc´s and lou´s place! we really enjoyed swimming in their nice pool, the great view and the large room with a very comfortable king-size bed! luc gave us great recommendations like the karakter bar on the beach. in general it feels very private; almost like staying in your own house.
We have enjoyed the beautiful room and the fantastic view of the villa from Luc and his wife! thanks for the hospitality. Regards Roel and Riena
I had a wonderful time staying at this property. The accommodations were as advertised. Very clean, neat and quiet. Really enjoyed the private pool. The hosts were very inviting and Lou made me feel right at home. This property is very close to everything! Can't wait to stay there again!
It was great to stay at Luc's and Lou's place! My boyfriend and I felt very welcome, Lou pointed out the most beautiful spots on the Island to us and we had many fun conversations. Would love to come back in the near future!
Luc and Lu where very accommodating. The place is very private roomy and clean. It is just as described. We enjoyed our stay very much !
The Pirate's Bedroom is a gorgeous room, in a wonderful private residence. Luc and Lou, the owners, are both wonderful and incredibly nice people. So charming and welcoming, you will wish you could stay forever.
The villa is built on a hill side, in a private estate above Cole Bay. The view in the morning and the evening is magnificent.
Being at the end of the road, you get little to no traffic from the neighbours. It's quite and relaxing and no noise to disturb you.
The room also come with a small fridge, sink, and some amenitie to eat.
Adjacent to it are a toilet and bathroom. Spacious, well lit and extremely comfy.
If you feel like it, you can also use the inground pool on the outside. It is set in a large deck where you can make use of the transats to sun bath.
The estate is in walking distance of a number of local attractions. Also, the entrance is just in front of a bus stop that can take you easily and at very little charge to Philipsburg or Marigot, in the French Quarters.
All in all, this is a must stay on the island. Affordable, nice, and of such friendliness, you'll feel like at home
