|Minimum Stay||5 nights|
This unit is located in a new condo building called Blue Marine. The property has a nice one bedroom with all the features needed to make one feel like home. The property offers great amneties. It comes with a fully equipped kitchen and a pull out couch in case you are a small family.
The other great thing about the location is that the condo is just walking distance from some of the best restaurants in the caribbean in the fishing Village of Grand Case
I am Rikki the manager of this wonderful property. I am at your service to offer you the best possible experience on the island.
Rikki purchased this condo in 2012
This property should be your choice because it is a great location that will be sure to make you discovery one of the most historical villages on the island.
It is within proximity to great snorkeling, restaurants, and of course your beach front.
This apartment was exactly as featured in the listing. When I initially booked the reservation, Rikki called me right away to confirm my request and answer any questions I had. When we arrived, Marcia met us at the car rental place and we followed her to the apartment, a 20 minute ride. Although, one could easily stay there without a car and walk everywhere or take cabs as needed.
We selected this apartment in Grand Case because we were looking to stay on the French side, in search of an authentic and local experience situated close to everything. This apartment was perfect for my husband and I and our 1.5 year old son. We felt comfortable, relaxed, and safe with no issues. The apartment was perfect for our son because the sandy backyard was easily accessible and private yet situated off the main beach. He would play soccer out back and even made friends with the locals on the beach. Also, walking to the restaurants up and down Grand Case was easy (and we used our stroller every evening). The street is a bit busy for about three blocks but when you get to the beginning of the strip it gets quieter and not as many cars. Also, there are two grocery stores a quick walk away. Both sold baby items and beer/wine, food, etc.
The apartment features an airy open or enclosed patio that we used a few times for dinner and every morning for breakfast. One night we had friends come over and join us for dinner and we fit 6 at the table. We had the doors wide open and enjoyed the perfect caribbean weather. During the day they were kept closed to keep the apartment cool. We cooked in the mornings and there were pots, pans, coffee maker, etc.
The bed was comfortable and the A/C was nice and cool. Also, once we closed the shutters in our bedroom, we barely heard any noise! And on our first night there was a wedding held across the street with loud speakers and music and it was barely audible for us. I would say the highlight of this apartment for us was the sun sets and the ocean view from our enclosed patio table. Every morning we would eat breakfast soaking up the beauty of this island.
Overall, I recommend this gem of a place. I would recommend to get Marcia's cell phone so you can coordinate the meeting at the car rental or airport. We almost missed each other and i didn't have a way to get a hold of her. Also, the washer & dryer broke when we were there but we ended up hand washing and hang drying before they could fix it which was fine.
Excellent location! Although the pictures online don't reveal that there is a local family home right beside you on the left hand side. Thought there was going to be an issue with loud music at one point, but that didn't happen(thank goodness). You realize where ever you stay your holiday can be effected positively or negatively by your neighbors.
The apartment was very good. Clean, all of the needed items although I think it's in need of some cosmetic updates.
We did have some problems with the shower but management dealt with that problem satisfactorily.
Beach is excellent! As good as any other beach on the island which we checked out. Nice to have convenience of your own place, washroom, drinks, etc.
We walked into Grand Case daily on the beach (day and night). No problems. You will see stray dogs on the beach but they seem to ignore you for the most part.
The island is great although like most islands the grand idea of building up with condos, homes when tourism was in its heyday has not happened.
My wife and I spent 5 nights in this clean, convenient, modern and uncluttered unit. The location is easy walking distance to the restaurants and shops in Grand Case, the view is just as is shown in the photo (gorgeous) and it's really a very comfortable layout.
The rental agent, Rikki, was great to deal with and he connected us with an immensely helpful colleague, Angeline, before we left home. Angeline made several dinner reservations for us even before our arrival, made several suggestions for activities and restaurants and continued to help us after we arrived. She was available via email virtually all of the time and was genuinely devoted to making sure all of our needs were met. A broken coffee pot was replaced with a brand new one within hours of our reporting it, for example.
Marcia, another of Rikki's colleagues, met us at the airport, accompanied us to the unit and gave us a thorough walk-through. She was just as delightful as everyone else we dealt with.
Although right on the main drag, the building was very quiet and our sleep was never disturbed by the traffic. The building is modern and secure and this unit is nicely furnished. Definitely not the sort of "garage-sale mishmash" one sometimes sees in vacation rentals.
Estuvimos en el dpto., mi hija y yo en el mes de Noviembre de 2015. El dpto. es fantástico con todas las comodidades. La ubicación optima, y la playa esta a 5 metros de la sala comedor, un paraíso. El dpto. tiene estacionamiento, es muy seguro.
Nos recibió Marcia, nos entrego las llaves del dpto., y del estacionamiento, muy amable y simpática. Nos sentimos como en nuestra casa en el caribe.
The condo was exactly like shown on the website. Very modern, clean, well maintained and so peaceful! We were a minute away from the main boulevard for restaurants, mini-markets, pharmacy, French bakery, etc.. A great place to stay.Ricardo (proprety manager) and Marcia who welcomed us were fantastic answering all our questions!
My wife and I stayed in the condo the first week of December 2014 and had a wonderful vacation. I strongly recommend the property to others who are planning to travel to St. Martin. The location of the condo is great, we walked to town almost every evening for dinner, and most mornings for croissants and baguettes. You're steps from a very quiet but beautiful beach as well, which we also used to walk down to the restaurants and center of town. Rikki was great, we called him before the trip to verify everything was set up, and he immediately responded upon receiving our wires with receipts, and he was waiting for us at the condo right on time for our arrival, with the condo owner. The apartment itself is very well kept, bigger than it appears in the pictures, and has a very comfortable bed. We loved it and hope to be back and we highly recommend it.
