French St. Martin – Vacation Rentals

More Information about French St. Martin

The French side is the smaller part of the island and less developed than the Dutch part. Visitors often prefer the Atlantic side, mainly Orient Bay with its long and sandy beach, beach bars, and in some areas naturist beach at Club O. The Orient Village community offers mostly rental properties for all budgets.

Villa Cote Mer opposite
Pinel Island

Not only the favorite beaches at Orient Bay, Hapy Bay, and Nettle Bay have attractive vacation rentals. Good alternatives are at Friar’s Bay, Anse Marcel, and at Cu de Sac.

More information at Villa Cote Mer.


Grand Case on the opposite island side, a mere 10 minutes drive from the Atlantic side, is a genuine Caribbean village with a few apartment hotels and excellent restaurants. It is also called the ‘Gourmet Capital of the Caribbean’.

Happy Bay and Terres Basses are dominated by upscale villas in gated communities. Close to Marigot, the French island capital, is Nettle Bay with some bungalow developments and hotels converted to apartments.

The less known areas are very attractive, too, such as Anse Marcel, Cul de Sac, Friar’s Bay, and Oyster Pond. All are in close vicinity to beaches.

If you stay in the French part of the island, the entertainment attractions of the Dutch side, such as a dozen casinos, clubs, and adult entertainment are no more than 15 – 25 minutes away.

Although the island consists of two parts, two nations, two areas of different official languages, no serious problems or obstacles are known. No border controls exist between, US-Dollars and Euros are in both parts accepted, English is widely spoken in the Dutch and French part, and locals and tourist alike move freely around between the two parts. Differentiators of minor importance are the electricity, 120 Volts in the Dutch part, 230 Volts in the French part, street signs in Dutch, or English or French, and different phone networks.

In 2010, the Dutch part became an independent country, though still closely linked to the Netherlands. The French part became disconnected from Guadeloupe, and has now the status of a French community. More to read about the island, see here.
