Amazing private getaway
We were thrilled with this little home and would easily stay there again and encourage others to book it. The living spaces and kitchen are small, but just enough to get by with a small fridge, a two-burner hot plate, and nice shower, and a full-size bed. What makes the space ideal is the private porch (and the view from it), and that is where we spent 80% of our time. With seating for 8 on the porch, it'd even be ok for a family larger than just the 2 of us. The host, Sylvie, was VERY communicative before and during our stay and Patricia, though she doesn't speak english, uses her google translater well. We had an issue with the air conditioning and she made it right by giving us a discount ASAP. The only suggestion I have is that it is difficult to find the place at first - it'd be nice to have better signage or a map from the main road. You have to turn down the small road at the Hemingway sign and then the apartments are on a road off of that right before to the restaurant. Multiple people have said it's a little hard to find in the feedback, so it'd be good to clear that up, but otherwise, this is a total gem. Also, Deshaies was the perfect, quiet tempo for what we wanted in a nearby town. You won't be disappointed staying here!
Serenity with a View
We really enjoyed our stay at Matutine. Since we don't speak much French other than basic greetings it was a challenge to find the place with the map provided. I admit I should have looked closer at it before we left home:) Anyway, the streets outside of town off Hwy 2 are not marked well and are very steep and windy but we did manage to get to our place after a few wrong turns. We met Patricia the property manager there and she checked us in. We connected right away to the wifi in the rental and were able to communicate with Patricia using Google Translate to get instructions on our place and she answered questions about the village. She was very helpful and pleasant. The unit was perfect for my husband and I for the week. The kitchen has roll-up windows so it was all open-air while we were awake which we loved other than an occasional uninvited bird. The kitchen worked well for our breakfasts and we went out for the remaining meals. I would suggest some type of lounge chair or hammock on the front deck, to relax while watching the sunset. Other than that the place was fabulous. Thank you Sylvie and Patrica!
Nice little bungalow
Our stay was basically comfortable enough in this basic, small bungalow. The view was lovely from the deck. A hammock would have completed this outdoor living space. We felt there were not enough towels and asked for another set which was not a problem. We had to buy beach towels as they were not provided. It also would have been nice to have some sort of beach chairs.We missed our flight and fortunately the owner was able to rent us another three nights before she had others coming in. Language was abit of a problem dealing with her manager but we all worked it out. I would recommend this place for two even though it will sleep four. It is very close to other bungalows so noise from other vacationers could be an issue. Great location, close to Deshais and beautiful beaches.
Most relaxing and pleasant: the view is spectacular and the natural auditory scene (from birds, frogs and lizards) very soothing. We spent 6 marvelous days there!
The view was incredible and the cottage was adorable.
Every door and window opened to an incredible view of the ocean. The property was very well maintained and newly remodeled. The bath was beautiful. The outdoor deck/porch was great and we spent most of our time outdoors. Everything that was needed for a comfortable stay was included including a cooler for the beach. The kitchen included only a cook top and no stove. A counter top toaster/oven would have been a nice addition but we did well without it. I would highly recommend this property!
