Pros for renting here: The condo is very large, spotless, luxurious and beautifully equipped. It is a new complex. The large balcony overlooks the pool area with a distant view of the marina. It has a convenient location, right inside a complex that had shopping and a few excellent restaurants. The pool is large, clean and is usually uncrowded. The condo is located within a short drive to the airport strip where there are lots of good restaurants and night life. The condo is also located right on the border to the French side of the island which is great for travelling to the French beaches. Cons: the beach (a string of beaches) is across the street from the condo complex and they are difficult to access as you have to climb down a steep hill. The water is rough so swimming is cautioned. The concierge/owners need to be a bit more organized for renters. The telephone was not connected for outgoing calls, or emergency calls to security, (we did receive a temporary cell phone, but 2 days after our arrival.). A rollaway bed I had ordered never arrived (I did get reimbursed.). The condo owner needs to make more keys available to renters as this is a large unit that sleeps 6 and people will want to go their separate ways during the day. On arrival we received just one key/fob and juggled them between 6 people for several days. After I complained we received two keys, sets. Really, you require 3 keys for this unit as there are 3 bedrooms. These latter issues are mostly minor and should be easily cleared up.
One thing to note about renting in this condo is that you will absolutely require a car. If you like the beach you will want to travel to other beaches on St. Martin or to the surrounding islands for an experience. There is plenty of supervised parking in the condo.
I would recommend this condo to a large family or group of couples that does not require a condo on the beach but is content to travel around the island. We enjoyed our stay here because we used the condo as a base to travel around.
I would not recommend the condo to a family that prefers a beachfront location with minimal travel.
