Our spacious 3-bedroom and 2.5 bath home is available for rent here on the beautiful island of Martinique in the French West Indies.
We have completely refurbished the home with a new kitchen with granite counter tops, brand new appliances and new kitchen accessories. The interior is painted and decorated with coastal details and all bedrooms have air-conditioning. The house is like brand new!!!
The home is super comfortable and functional. There is plenty of square footage, decking, and yard space to move about. You will love the saltwater pool as well as the view from the house. The pool is surrounded by a beautiful garden, redwood decking, and clay tiles.
Swim - Beach - Sightsee - and much more!
We provide daily itineraries for sight-seeing and activities all around Martinique. We'll make sure you find one to enhance your experience here.
Surf or learn how to surf - There are 3 surf schools in the immediate area as well as surfboard rentals.
Our neighborhood sits at the very eastern point of the Caravelle Peninsula that faces the Atlantic Ocean. You will need a car during your stay and will be happy to have one as there is plenty to see and experience while NOT surfing!!!
In our small village of Tartane, there are small grocery stores, a gas station, several restaurants, cafes, and some small markets where you can buy local fruits and vegetables. You can also buy fresh fish daily caught by the fishermen of the village.
If you continue west on the main highway, going about 10 minutes further, you can visit the town of Trinité where there are large grocery stores offering everything you need during your stay.
It is located at the very tip of the peninsula called the "Caravelle", which is the French name used to describe the ships used by Christopher Columbus who discovered the island in 1502.
Directly in front of the house is our beach which we call "Surfer's Beach", and as you can see from the pictures of the surf, it is a name well chosen, although it is not the only surf spot on the island. There are several other spots on the east coast and others on the northwest.
For surfers who follow the Pro Surfing Tour, In May of 2015, 2016 and now in 2017 Martinique has hosted a WQS surfing event "Martinique Surf Pro" at the surf break of Basse Pointe where some of the best surfers in the world competed. So if you are here during that exciting event it is definitely worth seeing.
For guests looking to learn how to surf, there are surf schools within walking distance. If you already know how to surf, you can rent boards there.
Part of the Windward Island chain and nestled between the islands of St. Lucia and Dominica, Martinique sits about halfway between North and South America, and is served by many major airlines.
Quit going to the same old places in the Caribbean on your vacation--come down south!!! Fly to our beautiful island via Air France and American Airlines' direct flight from Miami, Florida!!!
Martinique is home to one of the best infrastructures in the Caribbean as it is still a French Department and benefits from that relationship. As a result we have great roads, hospitals, doctors, supermarkets, (with French foods and wine), and bakeries just 5 minutes away for breakfast treats.
Directly east, a few steps away, is the largest nature preserve on the island where you can hike and explore, visit secluded beaches, and discover the lighthouse (with a view that will take your breath away) and the Château Dubuc, the ancient ruins of farming family pioneers, who at one time owned the entire peninsula where they produced sugar cane for export to Europe.
There are hikes for all levels within the preserve ranging from 30 minutes to 3 hours long.
For hiking fans, Mount Pele awaits in the north. It sits at an altitude of 1397 meters and is well known for its eruption in 1902 that destroyed the capital (at the time) of St. Pierre killing 30,000 inhabitants. Hikes near the volcano can range from a few hours to all day depending on your stamina. It's an unforgettable day trip. Don't worry it hasn't erupted since 1902, so it's safe to climb without fear of lava and such.
You must also visit the current capital of historic Fort de France where there are shops like Roger Albert and other equally impressive sights to see. One is the Schœlcher Library, designed and built by Gustave Eiffel, the constructor of the Eiffel tower.
To the south are the beautiful beaches of Diamant and St. Anne offering a less mountainous version of Martinique and white sand beaches. To the west are the black sand beaches of the Caribbean side of the island and the town of St. Pierre, with all its history and volcanic ruins.
Also known as Tartane, Anse Dufour or Anse Bonneville. Plage des Surfeurs is a mellow and crumbly, normal to long reef break with primarily longer rights and some lefts. All types of boards can be used here, but longboards are best. It is the most consistent and best known spot on the island, offering the best waves during winter and spring.
