We stopped by last January (2013) and the main building had been gutted and was being renovated into what seems a private residence. The swimming pool has been filled in and several units had been demolished. The new owner from St Barts had no comment about possibly continuing to rent any of the remaining units. Too bad, it was a... More

We had reservations for a studio for March 28 to April 2. We were greeted by a pack of stray dogs charging out of the office. Luckily they ran the other way before they discovered us. The owner came out so we asked to see the studio and it wasn't bad but there was a cat nesting on the couch.... More

We choosed that accomondation because of Tripadvisor. I have to say that the good old times has been gone. The owner changed one year ago and it looks like the new one doesn't care like the old one did. Don't get me wrong: it's still a charming location and a helpfull new landlady but you can see the change in... More

We actually traveled here in May 2009 but wasn't on Trip Advisor and I wanted to make sure to voice what a wonderful experience we had. Owned by Mireille and her husband, La Caravelle is a small villa right on the marina at Oyster Pond. They were so friendly and nice even though we showed up and realized they only... More

The place itself was OK but on return to the place one evening, we were attacked by two island gentlemen that were on a scooter (apparently at the time they were having problems on the island with scooter gangs). One weilded a knife. We were able to fight them off although they got my bag with my camera, a hundred... More

Mireille's small villa right on the marina at Oyster Pond is the perfect get away place for a couple looking for serenity on the water while being just minutes away from a great selection of restaurants. La Caravelle has 6-7 studio apartments, each with a private terrasse. You can cook your own meals or eat out at any one of... More

We have been on the beautiful island St. Martin with its lovely beaches for three weeks and spent our holiday at "La Caravelle" in Oyster Pond. The apartment was very nice and clean, the interior perfect and appropriate. We enjoyed having breakfast outside on the veranda overlooking the lovely garden, the swimming pool and the marina being visited by butterflies... More

a very good location to try for your holidays in Saint Martin, a quiet place, areas around where a lot of interesting things can be seen, magnificent landscape on the sea shore from both the Dawn beach (1km away) and the rocks around.

Hidden Gem! We stayed for five nights at La Caravelle and loved it. Our room was a "Studio A" class right outside the pool which looked out over the bay. This worked well for us since we could enjoy eating and reading on our private terrace then slip into the pool just a few steps away anytime we wanted. There... More

My wife and I had wonderful time on St. Marin staying with charming Mireille at her hospitable La Caravelle on the Oyster Pond. This hotel provides a beautiful tranquil base from which to explore St. Martin -- 10 minutes to Philipsburg (Dutch Capital), 10 minutes to Orient Bay and 30 minutes to Marigot (French Capital). You can walk to a... More
