Eco lodge with swimming pool, off the beaten track, remotely on a wild beach

Bedrooms 4
Space 3,767 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Remotely on a black sandy beach with lots of character, at the mouth of the Saint-Jacques River, and surrounded by a state forest, eco lodge Maison d'Ô is truly a unique experience, off the beaten track and away from the tourist flocks.

It is an ideal spot for those who love nature, for hikers and surfers, or for having unforgettable moments with your family on a timeless site. Eco lodge Maison d'Ô is also an excellent starting point for exploring a more secret Martinique.

In the Creole spirit, the house coexists in harmony with its environment: the shade of the trees, the large, airy terrace and the swimming pool are unceasing invitations to go outside for a relaxing or convivial moment.

The house has four bedrooms (two large and two standard), and three bathrooms, totalling 10 sleeping arrangements (2 double beds and 6 single beds).

The equipped kitchen opens onto a vast living room, an indoors dining room, and the terrace for having meals outside.

Amid the trade winds, the house is almost free of mosquitos and it is cool in any time of the year.

For children, a car seat, a baby bouncer, a pushchair, a cradle, a changing table, a folding bed, a baby bath and some toys may be available on site.

The ground-floor spaces are accessible for people with reduced mobility, in particular a large bedroom and its bathroom.

As you will be living inside screen sceneries, there is no television.

You have unlimited internet access (but you'd rather enjoy nature!)

Some books and board games are available for you to use.

The beach is wild and never crowded because bathing there is dangerous: a guarantee of peacefulness. For a refreshing moment, enjoy the swimming pool, the river or one of the many beaches around (less than 15 min away).

The pool, facing the sea, has a part for the smallest.

The hammock, in the shade of the catalpa trees, is very enjoyable.

Civilization is only 2 km away : a little supermarket, street vendors (fruits & vegetables, fresh fish...), doctor, drugstore, gas station, ATM, post office... There is also a square that is very popular among local people, with a playground and street foods (pizzas, ice creams, food from Martinique or Haïti...)

And if you can think of anything missing for a near-perfect stay, please let us know!

About The Owner

We have lots of dreams and four children - four girls. So we seldom get a chance to rest.

Alice is a speech therapist. Nicolas is an entrepreneur in the renewable energy sector.

It seems our four girls borrowed to the place their great deal of assertiveness and ardor for life.

Perfect spring break getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in early April at this beautiful house. It is spacious and very comfortably sleeps 8 people; we chose this location on purpose to be off the beaten tourist path and have not been disappointed. Everything one could need is nearby, including several beautiful and almost empty beaches (Charpentier and Azerot), the village with a big supermarket and nice bakery shop, great local restaurants for lunch (Point de Vue).

The views from the terrace and the pool are wonderful, even better than in the pictures, the vista is too big to be captured in one photo. The house is fully equipped with a functional kitchen and three beautiful bathrooms. Lots of towels are provided.

The owners, Alice and Nicolas, are very helpful and welcoming. They provided a very useful guide they composed themselves, with precious tips and a collection of things to do in Martinique, which we used a lot.

The highlight of the week has been Laurence Menchon, recommended by the owners, who lives nearby and can prepare food for lunch or dinner which she also delivers right to the house; it is a delicious way to taste local cuisine with a "French metropolitan" touch that should not be missed ("French-Antillean fusion").

To sum it up, we loved or stay and hope to come again!

Sun/Beach Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Well first off Nicolalaus made our trip amazing. The house was in perfect shape when we arrived and he was more than willing to help us during our stay to make the entire experience one to remember. He setup some reservations for us since we didn't speak French for restaurants, Ms. Machon (who brought amazing food to the house if you just want to relax instead of cooking over a hot stove at night, French food that is just delicious!), deep sea fishing excursion, music venues, and recommendations on where to see the sites. Plus having an almost private beach right next to the house with a pool... it was perfect.

Overall I would recommend also that you have a car to get around the island, definitely a must. If you are looking for a secret hide away beach check out La Diamonte beach on the south side of the island. If you are taking the D7 road look for the La Cherry exit on your way to La Diamonte and there is a secret beach at the end of the road that is just amazing!

Thank you Nicolalaus for making this a great experience. I would highly recommend this place, especially for English speakers because Nicolalaus was so accommodating.

Also the house would be great for kids!

Nicolas was very flexible with our arrival times. We didn't get in until 10pm, and he was there waiting to explain everything to us. The property is more beautiful than the pictures.

You fall asleep to the sound of waves every night and wake up to a beautiful sunrise.

This is a very family style home. There is a store very close, and the kitchen is easy to cook in.

Nicolas also helped us plan out our week. He gave us directions to Mount Pelee, and he set us up with a "secret beach" tour.

There are some dogs that sometimes come on the property, but they are harmless.

Wonderful open air house

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late to the home and Nicolas was waiting so welcoming and enthusiastically. The house was perfect for our group of 10 and it had all the amenities we needed. The location was perfect for every activity we wanted to do from climbing Mt Pelee to canyoning down waterfalls in the rain forest.we had a perfect vacation and hope someday to return!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Alice and Nicolas' house is extraordinary. We were a big group (12 people) and the house never felt too small – it's wide open and full of light and very relaxing. It sits right on a beautiful beach with palm trees (we even managed to find a few coconuts to eat ourselves!). Alice and Nicolas were incredibly generous with recommendations for activities and even booked us a boat tour around the island to a beach that was inaccessible by car.

The setting is extraordinary - right on the beach in the north part of the island, far enough away from the tourist hotbeds in the south to feel comfortably removed from the resorts, but close to both the pristine beaches in the south and the incredible hikes and surfing in the North by car. Everything you could need is a 5 minute drive into Sainte Marie – food, bank, restaurants, souvenirs.

I would go back to Martinique in a heartbeat, and I would absolutely stay with Alice and Nicolas again. Thank you, Alice and Nicolas, for a truly wonderful vacation.

Notre ressenti sur le lieu de notre séjour

  • 5 of 5


Nous avons adorés, surtout les enfants pour qui dès leur arrivée ont comparé la maison à celle de Robinson CRUSOE. Cet Eco lodge avec piscine est très fonctionnel et spacieux, bien adapté aux personnes handicapées également. Le fond musical composé le jour par la mer, et la nuit par la mer, les grillons, les grenouilles et les crapauds. Séjour partagé entre la piscine (très belle), les différentes plage, les visites de l'île. Nous reviendrons très certainement. Nous remercions Alice et Nicolas pour leur accueil très chaleureux et les précieux conseils qu'ils nous ont transmis. SALIKA

La Maison d'Ô is located along a hiking path, managed by the National Office of Forests; it follows the entire North Atlantic coast, crossing state forests.

Our enchantments in the Maison d'Ô surroundings:

* Le Tombolo, a sand barrier that, during low tide, links the town of Sainte-Marie to its islet, on which a hiking path has been built.

* The Saint-James distillery and its rum museum

* Restaurant Le Point de Vue in the Charpentier cove, neighbouring ours.

* The timeless JM distillery

* Some very beautiful surf spots: the Charpentier Cove, Luciole, Tartane and above all Basse-Pointe, which hosted the 2015 World Championship

* The Grand-Rivière fishermen, who take you to inaccessible beaches in the extreme north of the island: the unique experience of a pristine nature. For bookings, please call the Grand-Rivière tourist office.

Some useful websites for taking your holiday to a next level:

* The Martinican Tourist Office

* The Tourist Office of Sainte-Marie

And of course we are available for recommending you personalised routes.
