ST MARTIN | ST MAARTEN after HURRICANE IRMA: Update December 2018!

ANSE MARCEL

I went to Anse Marcel very briefly. Not enough to really give a full-on update but I did see some work being done over at the beach so that is good to see. It’s always good to see work being done that means that it’s going to get better sooner rather than later. When I was there in June, lots of places didn’t have any work being done so it was a little sad but when you see work being done it gets you excited so Anse Marcel I believe is going to bounce back pretty fast and should be ready for the
season continuing around the island I went to Orient Bay next.

  1. Phil,
    Thank you so much, merci beaucoup for this happy, inspirational update!!
    I love St Martin : it’s a second or maybe first home to me. I was devastated for so long but this update has brought tears of joy to me. Tell me, what about it makes you so interested in it? Your Ariel’s are amazing! You mentioned my favorite beaches: Orient beach and Baie Rouge. I am ambivalent about the restaurant and chairs missing. I loved happy hour on Baie Rouge! I’ve also never been to Happy baie so will check it out next time. My Dawn beach in Oyster pond appears to be closed with no sign of life on the web. Are there places to stay on Orient beach?
    Sooooo after your video, I think I’ll return soon. Again thanks so much for the update!!!

    1. Hello Sheree! Thank you so much for commenting. I always love to hear about how much people love the island. It really is a special place. I’m so happy you enjoyed my update. I wanted to provide people with real information about how the rebuilding process is coming along. I first started going to the island 4 years ago. I do work for clients there and found myself going twice a year for weeks at a time. It really started to feel like a second home. Orient Beach has a few places to stay nearby and there are many private villas as well that are available. I’m so happy to hear my video has inspired you to make a return trip soon! That is all I wanted from this! Thanks again for watching and readying!

      1. I used to go for 3 weeks at a time. I’ve stayed all over the island. Each side has its beautiful, seductive aspects.Right?
        Did you get the aerial shots with a drone? Phil, you’re so lucky to work for people there!!!
        I had this dream to live there, but I am afraid of the hurricanes ! Its’ interesting that the new Orient Beach bars are being built so that they can be taken down quickly. Great thinking!!!
