Answer

1. St. Martin is the smallest island in the world divided between two countries, France and the Netherlands. The island is 34 square miles in total size, 2. The northern French part of the island is known as St. Martin and is an overseas collectivity of France. The southern Dutch part is known as St. Maarten and is one of four constituent countries that form the Kingdom of the Netherlands. 3. The land mass of St. Martin is split roughly 60/40 with the larger French side covering about 20 square miles. 4. Slightly more people, however, live on the Dutch side of the island (where the estimated population is 39,689) while 31,754 people reside on the French side. Philipsburg is the biggest city of the Dutch side while Marigot is the capital of the French side. 5. The division of the island between the Netherlands and France dates to March 23, 1648, under the Treaty of Concordia. Local folklore indicates that the division of land began with walking contest between a Frenchman and a Dutchman. Before they started, the Frenchman drank wine while the Dutchman drank the stronger jenever (Dutch gin), allowing the Frenchman to cover more territory and claim more land. (The Dutch say he cheated.) 6. Before the French or the Dutch arrived, Christopher Columbus claimed the island for Spain on November 11, 1493. Since that day was celebrated as St. Martin Day, he named it Isla de San Mart�n after Saint Martin of Tours. Spain did not make settling the island a priority. 7. Wanting the island�s salt, the Dutch founded a settlement in 1631, erecting Fort Amsterdam as protection from invaders. Jan Claeszen Van Campen became its first governor, and the Dutch East India Company began their salt mining operations. French and British settlements sprang up on the island as well. 8. Peter Stuyvesant was a major figure in the early history of New York City. Before he came to New York, however, Stuyvesant (born in the Netherlands in 1612) was director of the Dutch West India Company�s colony of Curacao from 1642 to 1644. In 1644, Stuyvesant led an attack on the Spanish-held island of St. Martin. A cannonball injured Stuyvesant�s right leg, causing it to be amputated below the knee. When his leg was replaced with a wooden peg, and he became known as �Peg leg Pete.� A year later, in May 1645, Peg leg Pete Stuyvesant was selected by the Dutch West India Company as Director-General of the New Netherland colony, which became New York City. 9. Despite its short runway that is located between a large hill and a beach, major airlines fly large jet aircraft into St. Martin�s Princess Juliana International Airport. This scene results in spectacular photo ops of aircraft directly above sunbathers on Maho Beach. 10. There is no physical border between the Dutch and French sides of the island but there are 37 white sandy beaches to enjoy.

Answer

The island of St. Martin sits at the heart of the Antilles Archipelago in the Northern Hemisphere, between the Tropic of Cancer and the Equator. More precisely, it lies towards the north of the Lesser Antilles, created when the Atlantic Plate slid under the Caribbean Plate to form the string of islands that includes St. Martin. Approximately 240km to the south east is the island of Guadeloupe. Saint Martin faces out towards the Atlantic on its eastern side and is washed by the waters of the Caribbean Sea on the west coast. With a total surface area of 88km�, the island is 15km long and 13km wide at its longest and widest points. The island occupies a central position midway between Puerto Rico and Guadeloupe at the heart of the Caribbean Sea, and is the closest part of France to the US. St Martin is a 3 1/2 hour flight from NY, a 2 1/2 hour flight from Miami, FL, an 1 � hours away from Caracas, Venezuela and 45 minutes from the islands of Guadeloupe and Puerto Rico. The island lies at about 7,0000 KM and 8 flight hours from Europe. Neighbouring islands include Anguilla, St Barts, Saba, Statia, Saint Kitts and Nevis.

Answer

Getting Around St. Martin - St. Maarten The best way to get around St. Martin and St. Maarten is in a rental car. But really, outside of walking, just about any means of navigating between the French and Dutch sides of the island is manageable. Having a car will allow you more mobility and you'll find reasonable rental rates. Agencies are clustered on the outskirts of Princess Juliana International Airport (SXM), located in St. Maarten. Unfortunately, traffic can be pretty heinous on both sides. The island buses also cater to tourists and are fairly cheap to ride. If you don't like the idea of waiting on a bus, consider splurging on a taxi. And if you're feeling adventurous you might want to use a scooter; there's nothing like feeling the sea breeze in your hair -- ahem, helmet.

Answer

Lifestyle sets St Maarten/St Martin apart from other Caribbean islands. It is not only the luxury of grocery stores overflowing with gourmet products from around the world, the more than four hundred restaurants, the vibrant nightlife and the fabulous, frequently clothing optional beaches. More importantly, the island is home to a truly multicultural community, with little ethnic boundaries and a wonderful level of tolerance and respect among its members. Eighty different nationalities living peacefully together on 37 square miles - making this the most cosmopolitan little island on earth. St Maarten/St Martin is an active place - not a dreamy backwater. It is a destination with attractions to suit almost everyone's taste and desires. This island is not part of the third world, even though the appearance of some neighborhoods seems to be in conflict with this statement. In general terms, many of the island's natives live a comfortable middle or even upper class life. English is the most widely spoken language on this cosmopolitan little dot in the ocean. That doesn't mean that some knowledge in French couldn't be of help on French St. Martin... But every local resident remotely involved with the tourism industry will be able to assist the visitor in English. The night is warm, the music hot. This is St Maarten/St Martin where the music is as varied and diverse as the people who live here. The hot sounds of Latin, funky Soul, blood-stirring Rock, foot-tapping Pop, cool Reggae and pulsating Zouk, with thumping, heart-busting Soca and Calypso thrown in for good measure, and the whole lot tempered down with soothing classical and flamenco guitar, making up the melting pot of the music scene on the island. Let�s introduce you to some of our most popular musical maestros!

Answer

The culture of St. Martin is a blend of its African, French, British, and Dutch heritage. Although St. Martin is a single island, it contains two separate nations: Saint-Martin, a French overseas collectivity; and Sint Maarten, part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Although each side's culture is influenced by their respective administering countries, they share enough similar heritage and traditions that it can be difficult to tell where Saint-Martin ends and Sint Maarten begins. The native Creole population can trace most of their roots to Africa, France, the Netherlands and the British Isles. Only some stones remain from the ruins of the two forts built by the Spanish occupation in its early take over. But during the colonial period, the British settlers and several military dominations left their idiom as the main language spoken on the island, and have made a large impact on St. Martin's culture. Nowadays, due to a major influx of immigrants searching for better employment and living conditions, over the past twenty years the number of Creoles has been surpassed by the number of immigrants. Today, the island's population of 75,000 is truly a melting pot of people from 70 or more different countries. With so many different nationalities present, quite a few languages are spoken. An English-based creole is the main local vernacular.[1] However, the official languages are French for Saint-Martin, with Dutch and English being official for Sint Maarten. Other common languages include various French creoles (spoken by French Caribbean immigrants), Spanish (spoken by immigrants from the Dominican Republic), and Papiamento (spoken by immigrants from Aruba, Bonaire and Cura�ao). In French Saint-Martin, the most popular religion is Roman Catholicism. Dutch Sint Maarten favors Protestant denominations, particularly Methodism. The island also has small Jewish and Seventh-day Adventist communities. Perhaps in part due to French influences, the whole island is known for its excellent cuisine. Creole, French, and West Indian cooking are particularly renowned. Chefs trained in Europe elevate restaurant cuisine to gourmet level. Of course, with the diverse nationalities, plenty of international fare is cooked up. Popular music on St. Martin includes a variety of styles beloved throughout the Caribbean. Calypso, merengue, soca, zouk, and reggae all contribute to the festive culture.

Answer

Accommodations in St Martin range form boutique hotels and casual (inexpensive) villas and condos to luxury or Five Star properties fit for Royalty. But when you consider sharing the cost of these luxury accommodations, rates are quite affordable.Like most Caribbean island vacations , you can expect to spend about $5000 per couple for airfare, lodging, rental car, meals and some entertainment. You can spend less or more depending on your taste and budget. There is something for every reasonable vacation budget.

Most delightful and expected attribute was the privacy. We spent our time in the villa and at the pool and on the sunbathing deck freely. During our stay the WiFi failed 7/8 of the time...bummer and an inconvenience. Unbelievable view of the Atlantic and of St Barts on the horizon. Soooo beautiful to see over and over again. Water is city water and that means reverse osmosis...very pure, fun to shower and swim in. Services were great. Good housekeeping and yard and pool maintenance. There are twenty steps from the upstairs bedroom and only bath down to the main living area. The steps are a bit steep and at 61 yrs, a bit difficult after a couple cocktails. Got used to it after three days when my knees had strengthened. Here is a hint for those a bit dim....like me. Turn the air conditioning off as you ascend the mountain to get to this villa. If you are driving a small subcompact like we rented, you will need the extra power. The pool is beautiful if not a bit cool like every Caribbean pool in March. Do a cannonball to get used to the temp the fastest. Another hint. There are no signs posted to ask you to put used toilet paper in the garbage can instead of in the stool. We had a small accident due to our unknowing. It was remedied immediately. This is a very common practice in the islands, but we were just unaware. A memorable sign above one of the restaurant bathrooms read, \"Don\'t put anything in this toilet that you haven\'t eaten first.\" Very understandable! BEAUTIFUL VIEW! I WOULDN\'T HAVE TRADED THE PRIVACY!

This is why you come to St Maarten. This villa is absolutely perfect for two. The view just couldn\'t be any better, from the deck, from the living room, from the bedroom. There is everything you need in this guest house. The furniture is very comfortable which is not always the case in rental properties. Eating breakfast and dinner in the gazebo is wonderful, you just cannot believe the view. We spent most of our days reading on the deck and cooling off in the swimming pool. It is a short drive to Dawn Beach with wonderful sand and good snorkeling. Oyster Pond has numerous good restaurants and you can\'t beat the Dingy Bar. We had house keeping service 3 times and the pool cleaned twice. If you\'re a couple coming to St Maarten, I don\'t think you can do better than this.

We just returned from Villa Leones and are ready to go back. The photos barely do it justice. We arrived two days after the hurricane and were very pleased that the grounds and property were cleaned up in preparation of our arrival. We were without DISH and internet, but that did not bother us at all. We reported it the ReMax office when we checked out and I am sure they will fix that. The guesthouse itself was perfect for the two of us. The balcony off the bedroom, the table and chairs in the covered gazebo and the pool area had spectacular views. Although we were in the guest house, the main villa was not occupied therefore,we had the entire outside area to ourselves - it was delightful. The house was spotless and very well maintained. The property was high on the hill and had several layers of security including a manned gatehouse and a gate with a keypad. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing and romantic getaway. Liked best: Outside areas , spectacular views Liked least: Nothing Traveling group: Spouse/Partner Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend? Yes. Recommended for:Friends getaway The property was \"as advertised\". I recommend the location. The property was a good value for the price paid. The property provided Wi-Fi/internet access.

The apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos given in the listings and the view is actually even better than what appears there since snapshots cannot do it justice. The kitchen is very well equipped and the overall maintenance of the whole unit is excellent. Your privacy throughout the villa is absolute. Even though the apartment is attached to a larger house, the owner guarantees not to be in residence when the apartment is rented. From Dawn Beach far below one can look up the hill and easily verify that this is one of the prime real estate locations in all of Oyster Pond. It was much better that we expected. Liked best: the private pool Liked least: The bedroom is one flight up, which might bother some, but we did not mind this. Traveling group: Spouse/Partner Your age range 65+ Would you recommend this villa to a friend? Yes. Was the property as advertised? Yes Would you recommend the location of this property? Yes Was it a good value for the price paid? Yes Did the property offer wi-fi/internet access? Yes
