We had a wonderful stay in Lydia´s apartment. It is beautiful, clean, completely equipped, location is excellent and view is amazing. Everything was exactly as described on the web page and pictures.
Lydia and Jean were great hosts. They always responded really fast to emails.
We will definitely stay here again on a trip to St Martin.
Perfect place on the island of Saint Martin! Great location between airports, restaurants, supermarket, and within 15-20 minutes drive to some of the most beautiful and secluded beaches on the island. Apartment was everything to be expected from the pictures and has everything needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The private beach and view behind the apartment was phenomenal waking up to. Lydia and her friend Jean were friendly, welcoming, and very helpful in answering questions and provided excellent recommendations on places to eat and visit on the island. Would stay here again if visiting Saint Martin.
Lydia and her friend Jean were very helpful beforehand, answering all our questions clearly and thoroughly, and great once we arrived, too. Jean met us and oriented us to the space - which is exactly as described. Everything was clean and in good working order, and the apartment is spare but attractive. It was, in fact, much better than we could have imagined, because the sound of the waves breaking on the beach just below the balcony was the most soothing thing in the world. Their recommendations for restaurants are also all very good. We had a perfect time and hope to return!
Traveled between (phone number hidden). Lydia was able to answer all of our questions beforehand thoroughly and provided specific instructions on how to arrive at the apartment and methods to contact her. She recommended using a rental car to transport ourselves from SXM to her apartment and we were really glad we did this, it was the best way to get around the island. We contacted Jean from the Hertz center and arranged to meet him in front of the apartment building. We met Jean at the laundromat in front of the building right on time and he showed us around the building and room. Room is small but had all the necessities and could not beat the view, it was great to wake up to and very easy access. Would only recommend bringing extra blankets/sheets as they advise to lock the shutters for the balcony at night and it can get a little cold with the AC unit. Also would bring extra bath towels if you like having a couple more around, the ones provided were adequate. Jean only needed to come once for maintenance and that was to unclog the shower drain from previous tenants. They have two beach chairs and an umbrella in the closet for you to use, we took them out to mullet beach and they were perfect. Only maintenance trick we found was if the overhead light for the kitchen sink flickers, press upwards on the fixture on the bottom right half to adjust the contact back into position. We parked our car in the Hotel Beach Plaza, the building right next to the apartment building (east), and never had issues with car safety. The neighborhood directly west of the apartment is intimidating safety-wise if you aren't used to Caribbean travel, but we never had any problems. If you are used to more American groceries (and prices), don't use the "Simply" mart next door but drive west around terres basses to Le Grand Marche on the Dutch side in Cupecoy. The other tenants are all friendly. We got through the week without any other issues and check-out was very simple, we contacted Lydia by airbnb and Jean met us the morning of our flight right on the agreed time. Our only other complaint is not meeting Lydia in person, we would have really liked to thank her face to face for such a great experience.
The correspondence with Lydia leading up to the stay was great and she was always very responsive and answered all the questions we had.
Check-in was easy and we were met as planned. The apartment itself is very comfortable, and the views are exactly as per the pictures. The space is big enough not to feel cramped, even for extended stays. The noise level is very low, the most noise comes from the sound of the sea!
The apartment is well located a very short walk from shops, restaurants, the marinas as well as having a laundromat right next door.
There is a small beach right in front of the apartment, not the best for swimming as there are a lot of rocks, but a great place to just have a dip in the sea if you want or can't be bothered going to the 36 other beaches on the island!
Would highly recommend the apartment to anyone visiting the island.
Der Ausblick war einmalig! Der Empfang hat sehr gut geklappt. Im Kühlschrank lag eine Flasche Wein.
Getting to the apartment was fairly easy, and the friend of Lydia's who met me was right there. The apartment was lovely - very simple, but what do you need when you're in paradise? The building is very secure, and the neighbors very friendly. I loved being able to look out over the ocean and see all the boats lying at anchor.
The location is perfect, in my opinion, a quick walk to the center of Marigot with a variety of shops and restaurants, as well as the market, with local food stalls and a party in the evening!
It was quiet, clean and very comfortable.
Just returned from a short but lovely visit to SXM. First time user of Airbnb and glad I did. The host Lydia was fantastic, quick to respond and through in communication. The space was perfect for what I was looking for: (1) literally on the beach(the picture is a very accurate), (2) walking distance to a grocery store (3) a stones throw to Center of Marigot, a quick drive to Grand Case and other parts of the island and (4) quiet.
The space has all of the amenities you need for a nice beach vacation. I'd definitely recommend.
We felt very welcome when we arrived. Lydia was unable to meet us but her friend Jean was very responsive and met us within 15 minutes of arriving on the island to give us the keys and show us around the facility and apartment. The place is just as shown on the photos, including the great view and sound of waves we woke up to every morning. The apartment is very quiet and easy to go get good sleep in. I loved that the building has a private door to the small beach out back. Supermarket one block away was great to have. Lots of places to eat and a cute street market near the ferry station. All walking distance. The room even came with a very well put together tourist guide with activity suggestions. Jean was also very helpful with advice on places to visit. Overall, This apartment was a great first Airbnb experience.
Lydia and Jean were excellent hosts. Any time we had a problem they fixed it immediately, even bringing us a bottle of wine! The view, beach, and location are wonderful. Swimming on the beach is great, it is usually the calmest on the island and free of seaweed, unlike Orient. It was also very quiet, one of my biggest fears before arriving. The Marigot area was easy walking distance, to the harbor (north and turn left) and the marina with best restaurants (go north and turn right). Saw some concerns online about safety issues but we were in St Martin for three weeks, walked everywhere without problems. One local restaranteur in Grand Case told my wife to take off her necklace so it wouldnt be snatched. Best beaches were Mullet (crowded), Rouge (good drinks/food), and Anse Marcel (best beachside music and quiet). If you stay here you really dont need a car. Just take the buses or a cab to wherever, the local drivers are a little scary so you can avoid that. Weather was great, a little windy and periodic showers first few days in early January, but after that, no rain during the day. Pay with dollars in cash if they give a 1 to 1 rate or with CC if not. The only downside to this apt is it is quite small but with the great weather we spent most time outside or on the nice balcony. The bathroom was recently remodeled and is very chic and modern. Lastly, be sure to tell Lydia if you dont have a phone as she expects you to call when you arrive. All the French travelers have cell phones without high roaming charges apparently so she assumes you have a phone.
Lydia est une personne de confiance, notre organisation s est très bien passé malgré mon absence et je la remercie!
Lydia est très facile comme locataire
