Best place on Grand Case
This beautiful apartment building sits back on the absolute best strip of beach in the area. It has all the amenities, electronics, hurricane shutters that double as blackout curtains and noise insulation, coffee makers, dishwasher, washing machine, dishes, plates, cups and, most important..wine glasses!
Loved the very good, tasteful furnishings. Comfortable beds. Great lounging off the master bedroom with a fantastic view. Lots of storage in bathrooms and bedrooms. Much appreciated!
Central but private. Convenient walk to so many great restaurants.
Walk downstairs and out the door to the beach. Beach chairs and towels…furnished. Generous past residents have left all kinds of floaties including kids’ beach toys. We left tissues, paper towels, bottles of water, plastic cups.
Just remember, it’s Island Time, no rushing. Christopher and Oliver are accessible for questions and needs. We had a grandbaby with us and some friends and it was an ideal vacation. Thank you Sophie!!

We stayed at Blue Calypso this trip. Absolutely no complaints. Two bed two bath, linens (beach towels), kitchen equipment, beautiful view, keyed entry right on the beach. Rainbow Cafe is next door on one side, Captain Frenchy’s in the other. Both have great food. Garage entry requires a car with clearance because of the steep grade. But you do not need a car. Grocery stores are maybe 6 buildings away, fancy restaurants line the Blvd, then toward the end are low priced BBQ stands (lolo’s). Cabs can be called if you want to go to other locations. I have never felt uncomfortable walking in Grand Case.
It can get loud, but it not a showstopper, and I can be a cranky old woman.
The apartment is clean and modern. It is the middle level of a 5 story building. An elevator takes you just to your floor. There are killer views from the large balcony. Air conditioning is not a problem. There is a washer and drying racks, so you don’t have to over pack. The beach is clean and soft. I have personally never seen waves at Grand Case (30 days or so in town). Good beach for both young and old. I have never seen “vendors” on this beach.
We won’t hesitate to rent this apartment again.

Great Location, Good Condo
The condo when we arrived was very nice, clean, and they had a person there waiting to let us in and show us the condo. However we did have issues with the master bathroom shower smelling of sewage so we had to keep the door closed and window open and put a sheet to not let the fumes out into the bedroom. We also had an electrical issue that limited the plug-in and lights to random locations (power in one bathroom but no lights and lights but no power in other). The key to the beachfront door did not work and someone kept shutting the door so we were forced to walk around almost every time. I called several times about these issues, they came after a a couple of days and got the power working and tried to fix the sewage smell but weren’t successful. Never did get a key to the beachfront door. However, we still loved the condo and the location enough to stay there again!! It was modern and very nice besides a few flaws, with beach and sunset view to die for, plus the bar is next door.

Wonderful stay at Blue Calypso
We stayed at Blue Calypso with another couple for nine days in mid April, 2016. It was in a fabulous location allowing us to enjoy the beach and the many wonderful restaurants in the area. The condo was perfect for us and made our visit very comfortable. The condo was clean and well equipped. We loved spending many hours on the the balcony. The condo is very secure and we were quite safe. Best vacation ever!

Great Beach Location, Modern Condo, Great Views
Blue Calypso Condo was located right on Grand Case Beach between the Rainbow Cafe and Captain Frenchy’s Cafe. Both were very nice bar/restaurants with beach lounges and beach service. We preferred Captain Frenchy’s as the owners were so friendly and accommodating. The food and drinks were also very good. Going to the beach was a very pleasant and relaxing experience. The condo itself was very nicely decorated and furnished and very very clean.The lounges on the terrace were great. The condo was very modern, so much so, that it was hard to figure out how to use the appliances (stove) and even to operate the water faucet in one of the bathrooms. I didn’t even try to operate the washer. A better condo notebook with detailed instructions would certainly solve these minor problems. The unit had an elevator that opened right up in the condo itself. This was one of the determining reasons why I booked this condo. One person in our party was elderly and I thought having an elevator would to be an advantage. However, that was a big mistake. The elevator only worked for 2 days before it stopped functioning. The only stairway was very difficult to use as it was of a spiral design. This turned out to be a very difficult experience getting in and out of the condo. The manager said they would try to get it fixed but of course that never happened. Internet was also a problem. It appeared that the condo has a new owner who was awaiting a contract for the internet. It took about 4 days before we had a reliable internet connection.This was stressful as keeping in touch for business reasons was important. The condo was equipped with automatic shutters. The first night we put them down and there was a power failure in the early morning. Of course they didn’t work and the manual handles didn’t work either and we were completely shuttered in. The shutter in the master bedroom never worked after it was open following the power failure. The sun was shinning bright in the bedroom just after 5 am every morning. One tip I would offer is always leave one shutter up in the living room in case of an emergency. Of course no one should ever cook in Grand Case because the restaurants and cafes are absolutely the best, but we like to eat breakfast in the condo. There were no kitchen utensils provided. The surface of the frying pan was so damaged that everything stuck to it. Hope the new owner buys some better kitchen equipment. All in all, we did enjoy our stay here. It was not perfect but you can’t go wrong in Grand Case. The beach, the restaurants, the boutiques and the people make it a great place. I would recommend thee condo if you can overlook some of the problems. After all it is the Caribbean!

Beautiful Beach Setting, Great Location
You can not go wrong with Grand Case. The condo was located on a lovely stretch of beach and close to shops, great restaurants and bars. The condo was furnished nicely in a very modern style. We encountered several problems. There are remote controlled shutters. The first morning when we woke up there was a power failure and all the shutters were down and we could not operate them manually. After this the shutter in the master bedroom did not work again, thankfully it stopped functioning in the open position, however the sunlight woke you very, very, early. There was an elevator in the unit but that stopped functioning the second day. This was one of the determining factors that led us to rent this unit as one of the members of our party was elderly and not having to climb stairs was an advantage. The elevator was never fixed during our 8 day stay. Very disappointing. The kitchen was poorly poorly equipped with accessories. Of course cooking in Grand Case should be discouraged because of all the food choices but we like to relax over breakfast and to have burned on pans and no spatula to even cook an egg was a little much. Internet was also a problem/ it took four days before we got a reliable connection. The management company should also provide better directions to the condo facilities. It took awhile to figure out the stove and we didn’t even try the washer. In spite of all this we did have a great time. The terrace was great to relax on and watch the sunset and the beach access was wonderful. The beach bar Captain Frenchy’s next door was friendly and provided a beach chair with drink service and the lunches were great.

Great beach location between 2 bars!
Stayed in January 2016 — We loved the location of this condo. Right ON the beach located between Rainbow Cafe & Captain Frenchy’s. This can be a good thing & a bad thing. Folks at Rainbow Cafe were nice & friendly & the food good. Both places had parties on several nights that went into the wee hours. If you’re sensitive, bring earplugs. It was the best beach location as far as we were concerned. Very modern furnishings. 2 beds & 2 baths which would be nice for 2 couples or family. Couldn’t get the hot water on in master shower & AC in the master didn’t work as well as the others; we just kept all the doors open between the rooms. Kitchen doesn’t have too many things if you’re planning to cook a lot. Of course with all the restaurant choices, that didn’t affect our stay. There is a washer which we did use. Loved the outdoor balcony & hung out there a lot. Liked having beach chairs although 2 of the 4 were broken. There were some floaties that we used although we didn’t know if they belonged to the unit we rented or the other two. The parking is underground & has a SUPER steep entry. We backed our car in but still managed to scrape the front end. But we did appreciate the off street parking. There is an elevator that opens directly into the unit that is operated by a key. We would recommend this unit because of it’s excellent location on the best part of the beach in Grand Case & for the proximity to all the fabulous restaurants. We enjoyed the balcony & having the parking.

Stayed in January 2016 — Just returned from a week stay. The location is great . Only 3 apartments in this building. You get your own floor. Actually the elevator brings you directly to your apartment. This apartment is perfect for a family of 4 or 2 couples. There are 2 master suites, each with on suite bathrooms. Very private. Quiet area with everything you want within a few minutes of walking. The beach is not very wide but it is very clean (no rocks in the water and no sea weed on the sand). The large balcony overlooks the sea and you will have a perfect sea view from every room of this apartment. We would return to this location and would definitely recommend it to all our friends.

Another great stay
Stayed in December 2015 — This was our second time in the Blue Calypso and we enjoyed it just as much. Perfect location, comfortable accommodations and the best beach on the island.
Melissa W.Jan 2016
What a great place
Stayed in November 2015 — We had a wonderful stay at the Blue Calypso. The apartment was much roomier than we’d imagined and the beachfront location couldn’t have been better. There were a couple of loud nights from a nearby disco, but otherwise, it was a quiet building. You can easily walk to all of the restaurants in Grand Case or stay in and cook for yourself. We had some trouble figuring out how to use the stovetop and were a bit surprised that we needed to purchase basic kitchen items such as paper towels and clean sponges, but those were minor inconveniences.

Beau Séjour à Blue Calypso – Lovely stay at Blue Calypso
Stayed in May 2015 — (translation) We had a great time at Blue Calypso; the apartment is very spacious and well equipped; 2 bedrooms with bathroom and toilet are spacious with a beautiful sea view. A small table to eat outside on the balcony would be a plus.
Original comment: Nous avons passé un très bon séjour à Blue Calypso; l’appartement est très spacieux et bien équipé; les 2 chambres avec salle de bains et Wc sont spacieuses avec une très belle vue mer. Une petite table pour manger dehors sur le balcon serait un plus.

Great Time at Blue Calypso
Stayed in January 2015 — My family and I really enjoyed our 2 weeks at Blue Calypso! It was in very good condition with comfortable, high quality furniture, and that fabulous view! It’s location was great-within walking distance to everything in Grand Case, but very peaceful. The only improvements I can suggest would be another reading lamp in the living room and possibly some further instructions for the appliances in English. We would definitely recommend the apartment and would love to return!
Emily S.Mar 2015
Blue Calypso a great beachfront spot
Stayed in February 2015 — Overall a very good property and ideal location on Grand Case Beach and a short walk to restaurant row. . Only real downside is the modern appliances with no instructions. A vacation rental property should have simple and universal amenities.
Mike W.Feb 2015
Stayed in December 2014 — This is the perfect location for a stay in St Martin. The apt is spacious with great lighting. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony to watch the waves roll or the sun set. The apt was very clean and had everything we needed One thing I would warn against is parking in the garage. The angle to get into it is very steep so cars bottom out. We just parked on the road which was super easy.
Melissa W.Jan 2015
I guess it’s sharing time!
Stayed in July 2014 — We just came back from Grand-Case unit BLUE CALYPSO and are currently booking our next year vacation. Agent asked for a review and I honestly did not want to put one to keep the place a secret. The unit is delightfully decorated. A tropical unit with modern touches. The lines of the furniture are pure, elegant and easy to live with. The indoor/outdoor furniture is a great idea. The unit is fully furnished and has everything one might need. The view is extraordinary and you get to wake up every morning, raise the shutters and view the beautiful Caribbean Sea from your bed. I especially appreciated the beachfront access and a dip in the warm waters was my first thing before coffee on the terrace. Grand-Case is a beautiful village with a true Caribbean feel. You can experience upscale restaurants (L’Estaminet very Good food and wine) one night and the colorful Lolo’s the other (BBQ and fresh beer). The unit is located in the heart of the Village with a grocery store, bakery, restaurants etc.. all walking distance. I recommend this for couples and for families… Lydia and Felicia Job well done!

Stylish apartment on the beach
Stayed in January 2014 — This apartment has been furnished to an extremely high standard with beautiful designer décor. The property is in a great location on the beach (with its own beach entrance) and is in the heart of Grand Case with all the wonderful gourmet restaurants on the door-step. However please be aware that it is also adjacent to a very lively cocktail bar which does play loud music so you may find it a little noisy on some nights.
