We stayed here for week 1 of our honeymoon and found Villa Pomme D'Amour to be as fantastic as all the reviews suggested.
Our apartment was very spacious and well equipped, consisting of a bedroom, decent size bathroom, kitchen and lounge. The real reason you will want to stay here is the breathtaking views from the long terrace overlooking rainforest, a swimming pool and the carribean ocean. The view would never get boring and was a delight to wake up to each morning. It will also be the best spot you will ever BBQ in your life!
Each morning, we shared breakfast with our new friends - the local birds that hung around the terrace. Their confidence grows as they get to know you and they were rather entertaining. Just make sure you share your toast or they will get upset and fluff their feathers at you.
The Villa is about a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive from the harbour. There is also a small (private feeling) beach about 5 minutes walk away as well - very secluded, lots of crabs. Take water shoes!
We simply cannot say enough about Josee and Pierre, the Villa owners. They were brilliant from the moment that Pierre picked us up from the airport till we left. As others have said you can expect some delicious rum punch and pruchetta upon arrival but also excellent hospitality throughout. Josee arranged boat trips, restaurant reservations, car hire, extra fans etc etc for us and we are very grateful. We were also left a nice bottle of bubbly as we had let on in advance it was our honeymoon - a very kind gesture.
In conclusion, this really is the perfect place for a relaxing, quiet getaway. It is romantic and peaceful but near restaurants and bars. It is also a great hub to go and explore the island. We can't recommend Villa Pomme D'Amour enough.
