“Great Location, Good value”

This was our first trip outside the USA or Europe so we were not sure what to expect. We traveled my husband and I with our 4 children so an apartment was our choice over a Motel/resort.

This was a decent apartment in an ideal location for visiting Flic En Flac, it has a beautiful garden and pool, security at the gate. The beach and shops/restaurants are within about 3-5 blocks walking distance. The apartment itself was clean and very large, amenities (stove, microwave, fridge, washing machine) functional, Wi-Fi was a bit sporadic, but better than we expected. The price was very reasonable and it was a good value. A HUGE advantage over some of the Villas that our friends rented was that there were screens in all the windows and doors, we loved this feature as we could open up to the beautiful island breezes without getting eaten alive by the bugs. Chris the owner was very quick to get back to us on the booking and arranged transportation from the airport which went without a hitch.
The only downsides we experienced was the linens were not the best and rather scanty and there was a strong odor (chemical? cleaner? we couldn't tell) in the clothes storage areas. The other thing to note is that check in time is not until 2, but our flight got in at 6:30 in the morning (as many flights to the island do arrive early) so we arrived at the apartments wanting to collapse after 26+ hours of travel and were told that we would be waiting in a adjoining empty apartment until the current occupants checked out at 11 and the apartment could be cleaned. It was wonderful that we even had that option and didn't have to wait else where, but we were not expecting that so it was an added strain. The managers there did get us into the rooms about 12, so kudos to them for a quick turn around.

Pros: Very Clean
Excellent price for a large apartment
Safe
Lovely Garden
2 large pools
Walking distance to beach/shopping/restaurants
Screened windows and Doors

Cons: Bed linens very thin/worn
Strong chemical (?) odor in all the clothes closet/drawers
Had to ask for an extra towel as they were only going to give us 5 for 6 people.

Overall if we went back, we would stay here again, it worked well for our family.
