“Such a special experience”

We have been coming to St. Martin for the past 14 years and this time we brought the whole family with us. We rented both the penthouse and the 2 bedroom unit at the same time. These properties were everything that it says it is. Maybe even more. Both units were tastefully designed and very well equipped. There were pantry items, drinks, alcohol, organic lotions, real tea tree hand soap, bug spray, sun tanning spray, q-tips, hair dryers and the list goes on. I never rented a place that would be so well equipped as these two units. Other thing I really appreciated was how clean and new everything was. But my absolute favorite part was the terrace. It has a roof on top so even if it is too hot to be on the beach the terrace is nice and cool. We had our breakfasts and dinners there and it was pretty special. We also loved the location. We walked to the french bakery every morning for fresh pastry and for lunch to one of the beach restaurants. Simona was very kind and helped us with any question we had. It was really everything we could ask for. We would love to do that again!

“WOW WOW WOW”
Reviewed May 26, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

"This is truly paradise." .... Le Papillon is an absolutely beautiful place! We went to every beach on the Island and could not be anymore pleased with the Simpson Bay location. Everything you could possibly need within walking distance, all local shops, restaurants and activities in the area. The Island is great for families, people who love turquoise waters and or are looking to be active with the abundance of water and land activities.

Our unit coordinator, Simona was very helpful, friendly and very easy to work with. The unit was clean, open, modern and simply perfect. Even better than it shows in the pictures. Such a relaxing space inside and out with all the amenities you could possibly need. All we brought was ourselves and some cloths.

Overall Le Papillon is the best place we have ever stayed! We can't stop looking at the pictures and we plan on bringing the whole family next year. The unit and Island was the best vacation by far my husband and I have ever stayed. Thank you Simona for everything! You are fabulous!!

The apartment was exactly like the pictures - no trick photos. It's in a new (2014) building with only 8 units and three are owner occupied. Gated and secure. Comfortable and nicely furnished with all high end appliances and well equipped kitchen. After a day on the beach or an excursion, it felt like coming home. Kept clean by a housekeeper every other day. Convenient groceries and restaurants close by. The manager, Simona, lives nearby and is very pleasant and responsive if there's a problem or concern. Would definitely return.
