We stayed a week at Caribbean Salt in Orient Bay for our honeymoon. It was an absolutely perfect experience. It was our first trip to SXM and I spent time looking at different options (both hotels and rentals) and felt really comfortable during my communication with Laure. She was quick to respond and answer questions. Booking was easy. Leading up to our visit, she was just as available and helpful. She provided a map from the airport to the property which we printed off and made life a little easier. When we arrived, she provided us with a warm greeting and a welcome basket, which includes the often mentioned rum punch. Delicious! No matter how small the question or if we needed anything during our stay, Laure was there for us. The unit was great. Very comfortable, close to the beach (Orient Beach is the best beach in SXM in my opinion) and a very short walk to Orient Village. Felt very safe in the neighborhood and walking to dinner at night. Also was just a short drive to Grand Case for other dining options. I highly recommend a trip to Orient Bay and staying at any of Laure's properties.
Response from the owner Thank you very much for your review. I wish you a lot of happiness. Sincerely LAURE
“Beautiful apartment in a stunning location”
Laure was wonderful! She was so helpful right from the start . The apartment was very comfortable with a well-stocked kitchen. We spent most days on the beach, but enjoyed using the pool as well. We had a lovely time and would like to return soon.
Response from the owner Thank you very much ! LAURE
“My wife and I had a wonderful stay a Caribbean Salt.”
We highly recommend this rental condo if you are looking for all the modern comforts of home but in a tropical setting. It is steps from a magnificent beach and several fine restaurants. Laure could not have been more gracious in her hospitality. The kitchen and fridge were stocked with fruit, bread, treats, milk, juice, beer, soda and a wonderful rum concoction. The condo is well furnished and comes with cable, wifi, beach chairs and towels. We had a car rental, but for exploring the island did not need one as Orient Beach is very self contained. We had a very relaxing vacation with absolutely beautiful weather. We hope to return soon!!!
Response from the owner Thank you so much ! It will be a pleasure to see you again for another time. LAURE
“Beautifull experience with my familly.”
The flat was as promised and even better ! Beautiful and fully equipped. Perfect accommodations, brand new furniture's. Marvelous design. Warm welcoming from Laure. She is on top for everything as arnaud his husband is. We have had welcoming gifts set up by Laure. I will not mention anything since it must remain a surprise but I promise you that you will fall in love with ! The flat is ideally located for either visit the island, go shopping or to the restaurant, visit the nature, sea diving, fun boarding, jet-skiing, or just enjoy the beach or quietly take advantage of gorgeous private swimming pool. This is a very quiet and save areas. We never had holidays like this. Please don't hesitate to stay within Caribbean Salt ! Thank you Laure & Arnaud please don't change anything and stay on top as you currently are. Merci Beaucoup ! Philippe Marquier : 2 aduts + 2 kids (14 & 19 year old)
Response from the owner Thank you very much ! Philippe, you can come when you want at Caribbean Salt with all your family. It was a pleasure for us. LAURE
“very nice appartement and very friendly owner”
Laure always responded very fast and precise to all request and questions. She is very friendly and helpful. The appartement is very tastfully decorated and in very good condition and well equipped. We enjoyed our stay in the house. The appartement is just next to the sea, which is very nice. This coast is rather windy and the sea has a strong swell. The pool was cleaned regularly but unfortunaly none of the showers of the pool were working which was a shame. Saint Martin is a very nice island but expensive.
Response from the owner Thank you !
“look no further”
This place is just awesomely located at the heart of orient beach, at walking distance of the best beach bars. The property has a nice pool, furniture is great quality, appliances are great too. cable tv and wifi are included. On top of that, Laure is an amazingly sweet woman that makes you feel like home. She even had some fresh fruits and a traditional juice for us when we got there!
Response from the owner Thank you for your words, and maybe next time ! LAURE
“Well furnished and located; very responsive owner”
We enjoyed a wonderful week at Caribbean Salt. The trip began with a warm welcome from Laure, even though we got in very late. The fruit basket and basic supplies were a lovely touch to get us going the next day. The apartment is nicely furnished. The beds are comfortable and plenty big, as are the bedrooms. The kitchen has (almost) everything you'll need. There is only one toilet, and it's separate from the two shower/sink bathrooms, but you get used to that. The outdoor dining area is refreshing at night. Air conditioners in main room and bedrooms work very well. The pool is well maintained and hardly used by the residents. The beach is (virtually) right out your door, and you are close to beach activities/sports as well as less populated parts of the beach. The only minor down sides for us were 1) the door from the pool in back directly to the beach is locked so you have to walk out the front door and around the apartments to the beach. Not a big deal, but there is something about walking out the back directly to the beach which is lost. And 2) the map and directions Laure provided were not good. If you're going to drive you'll need detailed directions. Laure was extremely responsive via email all week (wifi worked great). She will respond to any issue or question you have in a timely manner. She is very willing to provide advice and guidance, but it's not her strong suit. She tends to assume more knowledge of the island than most visitors will have. But she will keep trying until you learn what you need. Be advised that Orient Beach is adjacent to the nude beach, and some of the nudists have a tendency to walk your part of the beach. Our daughter returned to St. Louis a little more "European" than she left it. :-)
Response from the owner Thank you for your observations. It is true that in the middle of the night, the road to arrive to Orient Bay is not easy to find, few indications to Saint Martin on roads and few lightings. All the best to you. LAURE
This is a fantastic property, very conveniently located in terms of food and beach fun. Very clean, well maintained apartment with everything I needed.
Response from the owner Thank you, See you soon with pleasure, and perhaps this time with your girlfriend ! LAURE
My boyfriend and I went to St Martin to windsurf in Gallion Bay. In total we were four people sharing the apartement which was perfect. The apartement has a great location, each morning we took a walk a long the Orient Bay beach, which is just a few minutes away, and bought some croissants in Tap-market on our way back for our breakfast. We took the car to go to the windsurfing spot. It is very close by if you go by the beachroad and we could easily come back for lunch and return in the afternoon. Not only the apartements location is great, it is also very nicely decorated and super clean. The hosts are indeed friendly and helpful. Upon arrival we were greeted with a basket of fruits and a Planter's punch :). We truly recommend this place!!
Response from the owner Thank you very much and good continuation to you. Sportily LAURE
“Caribbean Salt is Fabulous!”
I have been to St Maarten/St Martin 26 times and have finally found where I want to stay each and every time I go! "Caribbean Salt" is a wonderful place to stay and was the perfect place for our 2 week "girlie" trip. Laure, the owner, is such a wonderful lady and was a pleasure to meet. She was there to greet me with a hug upon my arrival and when I walked in to my "home away from home" I was extremely pleased. She even had all the essentials you would need for your first day and night in Paradise! She had everything you would need for a 1st night dinner, so we didn't even need to go to the grocery store! This was so nice after traveling all day! There were soft drinks, milk, creamer, beer, coffee and a huge fruit basket with wonderful fruit and Laure's own Planteurs Punch, which we had dutifully named "St Martin Moonshine":-) Suzy wants the recipe! She and arnaud, her husband, have taken extra special care to make sure that anyone who stays there "wants" for nothing! Their condo has anything and everything you will ever need while on vacation and it's so close to the beach(20 yards), pool(right outside the back door)and Orient Village, where all the great restaurants and shops are, is within 2 minutes walking distance. The restaurants at the Village are wonderful and we ate there most nights. And, even though all of this is so close, you never hear a sound...it's so peaceful and quiet! I would highly recommend "Caribbean Salt" to anyone, whether it's two couples(huge king size beds in each bedroom), a family or "just the girls", like our trip was made up of. I just hope that "Caribbean Salt" or "Fleur de Sel"(her one bedroom, which is equally as nice!)is available for me next time when we are ready to come back to St Martin! Laure, you are wonderful and you made our vacation to St Martin one to remember! I'm so happy that I found you and "Caribbean Salt"! I'll be back manyyy times in the future!
Response from the owner Thank you very much for your comments. You were really very pleasant, radiant persons and full of life. I hope to see again you, all three, soon. A lot of happiness to you. LAURE
