We were, of course, impressed with all of the incredible reviews, but the reality turned out to be even better! Villa L'Orangerie is beautiful and centrally located, close to everything on the island-downtown, beaches, and activities. Marcel and Sjaak were incredible hosts, and the amenities were as good as promised! Beautiful apartments, lovely furniture, a pool, air conditioning, comfortable beds, safe and secure parking! A few things to know for travelers from the US: these are apartments, not a hotel, so you will need to buy things like dish soap, toilet paper, and trash bags. Some of the aspects of the stay-like paying for electricity and water-are hard to understand but water and electricity are very expensive on the island. Despite this, the total cost was lower than what we would have paid to many of the hotels on the island. You will definitely need to rent a car. All in all, we felt the experience was incredible.
