We have lots of dreams and four children - four girls. So we seldom get a chance to rest. Alice is a speech therapist. Nicolas is an entrepreneur in the renewable energy sector. It seems our four girls borrowed to the place their great deal of assertiveness and ardor for life.

Un endroit parfait pour des vacances en famille!
Nous avons grandement apprécié nos vacances en famille dans la maison d'Ô. Tous y ont trouvé leur compte avec assez d'espace autant intérieur qu'extérieur pour que notre groupe de 9 personnes ne se sente pas à l'étroit. La piscine est idéal pour les enfants, et même les petits enfants (notre fille de 14 mois) car un endroit ombragé et peu profond lui a permis de jouer allégrement dans la piscine. L'hôte répond rapidement aux messages et contribue à la réussite de notre séjour.
Turning onto the road is a bit bumpy as well as the rest of the path to get to the property. Upon arrival we came face to face with different animals which was a cute taste. We were right off of a beautiful view overlooking the beach that held a gorgeous backyard including the pool we lounged in whenever we had the chance.
When we first opened the front door, we were greeted with a nice open concept home. Originally, the doors in the back wouldn’t close so we had to get maintenance for that but it was a quick fix. They were quick to help and did so with no issues.
The only negative we could think of were the many mosquitoes. We would definitely recommend bringing bug spray as the mosquitoes did not come out to play! Other than that, our stay couldn’t have been more perfect.
The hosts were so amazing both dealing with us before and after our arrival. They were very accommodating with letting us stay for a few more hours when it was found out our flight was delayed for the entirety of the day.
We would definitely stay here again.
Perfect spring break getaway
We spent a week in early April at this beautiful house. It is spacious and very comfortably sleeps 8 people; we chose this location on purpose to be off the beaten tourist path and have not been disappointed. Everything one could need is nearby, including several beautiful and almost empty beaches (Charpentier and Azerot), the village with a big supermarket and nice bakery shop, great local restaurants for lunch (Point de Vue).
The views from the terrace and the pool are wonderful, even better than in the pictures, the vista is too big to be captured in one photo. The house is fully equipped with a functional kitchen and three beautiful bathrooms. Lots of towels are provided.
The owners, Alice and Nicolas, are very helpful and welcoming. They provided a very useful guide they composed themselves, with precious tips and a collection of things to do in Martinique, which we used a lot.
The highlight of the week has been Laurence Menchon, recommended by the owners, who lives nearby and can prepare food for lunch or dinner which she also delivers right to the house; it is a delicious way to taste local cuisine with a "French metropolitan" touch that should not be missed ("French-Antillean fusion").
To sum it up, we loved or stay and hope to come again!
Well first off Nicolalaus made our trip amazing. The house was in perfect shape when we arrived and he was more than willing to help us during our stay to make the entire experience one to remember. He setup some reservations for us since we didn't speak French for restaurants, Ms. Machon (who brought amazing food to the house if you just want to relax instead of cooking over a hot stove at night, French food that is just delicious!), deep sea fishing excursion, music venues, and recommendations on where to see the sites. Plus having an almost private beach right next to the house with a pool... it was perfect.
Overall I would recommend also that you have a car to get around the island, definitely a must. If you are looking for a secret hide away beach check out La Diamonte beach on the south side of the island. If you are taking the D7 road look for the La Cherry exit on your way to La Diamonte and there is a secret beach at the end of the road that is just amazing!
Thank you Nicolalaus for making this a great experience. I would highly recommend this place, especially for English speakers because Nicolalaus was so accommodating.
Also the house would be great for kids!
Nicolas was very flexible with our arrival times. We didn't get in until 10pm, and he was there waiting to explain everything to us. The property is more beautiful than the pictures.
You fall asleep to the sound of waves every night and wake up to a beautiful sunrise.
This is a very family style home. There is a store very close, and the kitchen is easy to cook in.
Nicolas also helped us plan out our week. He gave us directions to Mount Pelee, and he set us up with a "secret beach" tour.
There are some dogs that sometimes come on the property, but they are harmless.
Wonderful open air house
We arrived late to the home and Nicolas was waiting so welcoming and enthusiastically. The house was perfect for our group of 10 and it had all the amenities we needed. The location was perfect for every activity we wanted to do from climbing Mt Pelee to canyoning down waterfalls in the rain forest.we had a perfect vacation and hope someday to return!
Maison d'Ô is an immersion in nature and indeed I think got the most out of it by choosing great activities ! We will be very happy to welcome you again !
La Maison d'Ô is located along a hiking path, managed by the National Office of Forests; it follows the entire North Atlantic coast, crossing state forests.
Our enchantments in the Maison d'Ô surroundings:
* Le Tombolo, a sand barrier that, during low tide, links the town of Sainte-Marie to its islet, on which a hiking path has been built.
* The Saint-James distillery and its rum museum
* Restaurant Le Point de Vue in the Charpentier cove, neighbouring ours.
* The timeless JM distillery
* Some very beautiful surf spots: the Charpentier Cove, Luciole, Tartane and above all Basse-Pointe, which hosted the 2015 World Championship
* The Grand-Rivière fishermen, who take you to inaccessible beaches in the extreme north of the island: the unique experience of a pristine nature. For bookings, please call the Grand-Rivière tourist office.
Some useful websites for taking your holiday to a next level:
* The Martinican Tourist Office
* The Tourist Office of Sainte-Marie
And of course we are available for recommending you personalised routes.
