About Phadya and Robert Cheron

After coming to Saint Martin on our honeymoon in 1999, we fell in love with the island. It's beaches, it's people, every aspect of the island was fascinating.

After returning a few times on vacation, we decided it was time to call this friendly Island Home. We've been living in Saint-Martin for the past 10 years now, and have continued to love it ever since. We have 3 beautiful children, and the picture shown is off the coast of Grand case , on this amazing inhabited small island about 10 minutes boat ride, called Tintamarre, A MUST SEE.

We are food and beverage wholesalers on the Island. We sell to all supermarkets, some hotels and restaurants. Having studied Hotel management, and being from a family of hotel owners, my wife decided to venture in what is and always has been her true passion. Together with her knowledge of the trade and our passion for travel and knowing what we expect , we decided do it, and do it right. Thus, Jolie beach apartments being exactly what we would expect for a perfect week or two on a tropical paradise. Great beach, Great Restaurants, Fun in the Sun, and the privacy of staying in, cooking a great meal and capturing the panoramic view of the beach, the ocean, and Anguilla.

Phadya and Robert Cheron purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Phadya and Robert Cheron chose World

When living in Saint Martin, one ends up falling in love with a certain spot, and for us, the grand case bay Is the most beautiful of all the beaches of the island. When the opportunity came to buy this apartment, we did not think twice, and enjoyed the thought of being able to share this paradise with others.

What makes this apartment unique

Grand case, and it's surrounding amenities, is exactly what makes one fall in love. everything is in walking distance. When standing in front of the building, you see straight thru to the ocean, and you're already in awe. Once inside, it's almost impossible to leave, as the view from the dinning area is just to die for.

As advertised. Very nice beach.

Nice unit, great location on a calm beach. The restaurant next door is a bit close and has a few late nights but not a big problem. Would choose this spot again. Close too many restaurants.

Would be 6-stars if not for...

  • 5 of 5

...the nightly noise from the Rainbow Cafe next door. Monday night's noise from the party next door was brutal, even after moving beds away from the wall and placing lawn chair mattresses against the windows. Interestingly, my wife and three kids slept right through it all, but I didn't sleep a wink that night.

Despite this, everything else was better than perfect. In fact, during the day, the Rainbow Cafe is GREAT to have right next door, with excellent food and service. The apartment is clean and modern and is located on the best beach and the best area (for food, etc.) in all of St. Martin. They even had gifts, goodies and refreshments waiting for us on arrival. Phadya and Robert are wonderful, kind and honest people. When our baby car seat did not arrive with our flight, Phadya ran an errand for us to purchase a new one in Marigot and deliver it to us. Ephraim and Glenda are amazing...very friendly every day and great with the kids. They purchased and decorated a real Christmas tree and even purchased and presented separate Christmas gifts to all three of our children. Also, Glenda, in her coffee shop, makes the BEST cappuccinos and caffe lattes on the entire island....Seriously!....much better than even the high-end restaurants on the Grand Case strip.

Thank you all very much. We look forward to a return visit.

Some disappointments

  • 3 of 5

Our week in Jolie Beach had some lovely aspects, along with some rather jarring disappointments. On the plus side, the apartment was well stocked and well maintained; the beach was very sweet, with wonderful access; security seemed good; and Glenda & Ephraim were great hosts/caretakers. We had been forewarned about the very late (2:15 am) jackhammer pounding Monday night party next door, although nothing can quite prepare someone for that experience; however, we were amazed to go through a similar (if briefer, ending at 11:15 pm) pounding on Wednesday night - even though there was hardly a soul in the Rainbow to justify it. I approached Douglas, the Rainbow owner, about this on Wednesday, who said he would lower the absurd volume, but he hardly did at all. Once again, this was not a party situation, so very hard to understand. Perhaps the biggest disappointment, however, was that the owners had listed a clothes washer and dryer as amenities on Home Away, but there was neither, and none on the premises. Had we known, we would have packed differently. We did notify Glenda about this misrepresentation and inconvenience, but we never did hear from the owners about the problem. We survived, of course, and did love the beach and the island, but be aware that the posted washer and dryer do not exist.

Paradise--Beach, great condo, great restaurants, cute little boutique shops, fab weather!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week stay at this heaven on earth condo in beautiful Grand Case! The condo exceeded our expectations in all ways except on Monday evening when the party next door went on longer than we anticipated. So you must join the party next door or stay out till 2 enjoying somewhere else. With that one caveat, the greeting from Ephrain sp? and then the owner Robert also were welcome as we were uncertain since we had never stayed here before. They explained everything and were there waiting for us when we arrived from our taxi ride from the airport in Phillipsburg. The condo itself is beautiful, seems new, and very clean. Featuring a nice full kitchen with fridge, stove, micro and cabinets and all the dishes etc. The bathroom is beautiful with double sinks, and a huge tiled shower and lots of countertop space for my stuff. The bed was very comfy and the pillows were also. The drawer space and closet space acts as a divider between the living room area and kitchen space from the bedroom. The living room sofa also makes up into a sleeper. And there is a nice dinette table too; however we choose to eat our meals just the two of us outside our condo in a covered area...overlooking the beach. From your condo you can walk right down the wooden steps to the sand! Sigh....so warm, sunny and comfortable as every day they set out your lounger and umbrella. I carried down the two nice chaise lounge toppers so I was super comfy as I lounged and read on the sandy beach. The beach here is wider than in most areas and if you want to kayak or paddleboard you are right where you can rent whatever you want. I just relaxed on the beach and walked up and down and collected a few shells. The water color was beautiful! For convenience, you can walk to the French bakery you just turn to the right and then a left--less than two blocks--also two grocery stores right there too. Restaurants are right up and down your street and they are fantastic! Some of the best I have ever had and half of them have water views. Some are more upper end in price but then the next night I had pizza within a half a block and made on a wood fire which was also great and inexpensive. So this condo has the weather, the location, the convenience, the great amenities, and the people! Glenda and Ephrain are more than helpful & there when needed no matter the request! And the owners were just a call or email away too. We felt right at home! We will miss it.

A little French Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I want to first of all thank Jolie, Robert and her staff Glenda and Efrain for an unforgettable 50th Birthday for my husband and Anniversary! It was our first time in the island and didn't know what to expect. The people are wonderful and since we went right before the season we had the beach mostly to ourselves. Jolie took the time to greet us even though she had Glenda and Efrain on site which my husband and I appreciated. It is not my first time renting and I've never been greeted by the owner or staff. Glenda was great to see every morning with her big smile and wonderful service if we need anything. Every morning she would be very attentive and with such a great attitude. Efrain was the same. Anything we needed he was there with a big smile. The beach is beautiful as well as the scenery out of our window while we woke up and had our coffee. We did extreme zip lining which was awesome and a great workout! We decided to go to Anguilla and enjoy the number 1 beach in the world. Though the weather wasn't great the beach was still warm enough to enjoy and just breathtaking. All the restaurants were amazing especially la petite table. If you want a romantic view with also great food you have oceans 52. You will not regret your stay at Jolie Beach! We definitely plan to come back with our kids next time.

A slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently spent 10 glorious days here in the Grand View unit on Jolie Beach. It was everything we were hoping for and more. This bright, clean apartment is perfect for a couple (there is a pull-out couch if you have kids). It has a fridge and stove/oven but we knew in advance that we'd be sampling as many of the restaurants and lolos (open air BBQ places) as we had time for. The view of Grand Case Bay is spectacular, and you can't get any closer to the ocean than this. We spent a lot of time at a table in the common area adjacent to our room just people watching. We rented a car and toured the whole island and decided that this is the best beach on the island. No rocks or seaweed/flotsam, just nice clean sand. We went snorkelling at Creole Rock with one of the guides up the beach, and again on Pinel Island. There are a number of tourist shops right on Grand Case Boulevard near the apartment, and for serious shopping you can go to Phillipsburg on the Dutch side. For the more action inclined there are places to jet ski, water ski, zip line, horseback riding, etc. and the property managers Ephraim and Glenda can help you find any or all of them. Monday nights the restaurant next door has a disc jockey and the music goes into the wee hours; other than that it’s peaceful and quiet. One thing we learned is that many places don’t take credit cards so we had to use cash, and the machines on the French side only dispense euros. To get US dollars you have to go to a bank on the Dutch side. For groceries avoid the small store up the street (too $$$). Instead turn right out of the building and go down to the intersection where Grand Case Boulevard meets the N7 road and turn left (2 minute walk). There are two stores there with all the necessities and a pharmacy a bit further along. It was very nice meeting you and your boys Robert, sorry we didn’t get to meet Phadya. Special thanks to Ephraim and Glenda for all their help. Beautiful place, beautiful people! We would definitely come back!
