“Stay here for quiet relaxation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Oyster Pond straddles the border of St Maarten and St. Martin on the east side of the island. With views of St. Barths and a beautiful bay to take in the sun, you can't go wrong.

“This had a real french feeling to it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We had an appartement here, I have to say this was an excellent place. Beautiful views on the marina, very very quiet at night (loved that!!)
there are enough restaurants for you to spent a whole week. There are places were you can get a cocktail and in the morning you can get fresh baguete and pain au chocolat at the small shops.
Beautiful bay just nearby (Baie de l’Embouchure), with an observatory deck, where you can just stand at look at the sea and hear the birds.

“Near the Westin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

This is a nice part of the island, with great restaurants and a nice grocery. We stayed at the Westin which is on the same road.

“A must see.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

This was the first year we wandered off of the main road on this part of the island and we were glad we did. After expecting to spend an hour or two wandering through this area, we ended up spending most of the day here just taking pictures. Beautiful views over each hill in any direction.

“Caution”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

On the Dutch side of the pond, at the interpretive platform, in the middle of the parking lot with other cars around and people present nearby, our car was broaken into. Both locks in the front doors were destroyed on a brand new (3500K) little Hundai. This left us concerned for days. Luckily they got nothing but two towels and a book, plus the beach bag
