Story

Soon after marrying in Charlotte, Vermont, Kristin and Marc Petrelluzzi came down to St. Martin to visit Marc's parents who have resided on the island for the past 25 years.
This was back in November of 1996 and it was supposed to be a two month vacation. Sixteen years later, they're still here and loving it!
Owners of three of the finest properties on the island, Kristin and Marc have received countless praise for their warm hospitality and admit that most of their guests are repeat customers.

Two Caribbean Gems... Polished to Perfection

Best known for their two boutique hotels on the French side; Hotel L'Esplanade, a well-kept secret among travelers who appreciate true privacy and style and Le Petit Hotel, "For the Lucky Few", Kristin and Marc have graced each studio, loft and suite in these relaxed and spacious boutique hotels with Balinese hardwood furniture, "Celestial Beds" loaded with feathers and fine linens, comfy bathrooms stocked with Provencal bath products and modern kitchens that are perfect for preparing late-afternoon snacks of paté and fromage from the local French grocer.
Every room at L'Esplanade has a private balcony overlooking the turquoise water and is draped with the bright pink bougainvillea blossoms that are pleasantly ubiquitous on the island.
At Le Petit Hotel, you can't get closer to the sea; the foundation is literally set upon the sand, the waves lulling you to sleep at night.

Kristin, Marc and their staff truly go out of their way to make sure that everything is just right with an impeccable eye for detail. From the blossoms placed around your room for your arrival to their music selection in the reception (think Jack Johnson, Jerry Garcia, Bob Marley), they epitomize Grand Case's laid-back lifestyle. You can't go wrong at either of these friendly, family run gems!

A Third Caribbean Gem...

Realizing their success on the French side, Kristin and Marc decided to venture into the Pelican Key area to see what they could accomplish on the Dutch side of the island!
They've recently added Blue Pelican Vacation Rentals to their inventory, which is clearly the most upscale accommodations in the area and quite possibly on the entire Dutch side of the island.

Already known for their love of style and comfort and their keen attention to detail, they’ve constructed and furnished Blue Pelican as if it were their own home.
Blue Pelican is tucked away in a charming cove, close by the sea. Its 12 apartments are strategically built around the Zen style dipping pool and surrounded by a splendid Caribbean garden. Truly the Ace of Pelican Key, which is conveniently close to Simpson Bay, the heart of St. Maarten. For the independent traveler, Blue Pelican is it!

Kristin and Marc have clearly covered all of their St. Martin/St. Maarten bases. One guest recently spoke of staying with them, “it’s like being home, without the work”. You can read reviews of the properties on TripAdvisor and follow them on facebook or better yet, be their guest; they’d love to have you!
