Apartment Panoramic View
Located on a cul-de-sac, on the French side of the island, this cozy space on a hill offers a great view of the surroundings. Because this spot is tucked away from the busy streets, it is a little quieter and secure. But, it is still located close enough to the town and within a good distance from local shops and restaurants. Orient Bay and the airport are only a short distance, as well.
Appart cosy avec vue magnifique
Located in a quiet neighborhood, but still close to the shops, this lovely space is a hidden gem, surrounded by lush, green space. A terrace overlooks the garden, which according to the host is quite rare, because of the island’s lack of natural spring water. A great spot for someone not looking for anything too extravagant, but still very modern.
Located right on the beach of Orient Bay, this great spot offers a swimming pool and an amazing seaside view. It’s a fully-equipped spot, with easy access to the beach and local amenities - this place is great for couples and families, as well. A tropical garden and tennis court nearby, means you can get some good workouts in, while you’re visiting.
