Very nice condo, clean, well equipped, and conveniently located to many of the beaches of the French side of the island. The unit only had air conditioning in the bedroom and not in the main living area. At times, it did get a little warm, however for the most part there was a breeze if we left the front door... More

Nice clean cool and comfortable space. Close to the orient bay beach. Close to leader price grocery store and the gas station. I would defiantly come back and stay there again. Owners are very nice and helpful with anything you need.

Overview: I stayed at the Idolem Residence in the low season from April 14 to 24th, 2016. Idolem is a small “boutique” hotel operated by a friendly French family. If you are expecting a corporate (e.g. Marriott, Sheraton) this is not for you. If you’re looking for an intimate, quiet, and low key stay then this is it! Grounds: The... More

Clean, three level, apartment, with wonderful porch overlooking salt pond. Idolem Residence is a family run operation. Pablo speaks English, and was very helpful. Definitely off the tourist track. No coffee shops in area, so bring coffee for your first morning. There is a little grocery store 10 minute walk away for supplies, just past the pharmacy. Beach is a... More

We stayed at the Idolem Apartments in early February. Our apartment was in front of the pool which was very convenient. We had a large terrace with loungers and a large and small table. The galley kitchen was quite small for such a large apartment and a little dated but likely typical of island apartments. I wasn't keen on the... More

“If you are renting the three-room apartment (I'm not sure about the studios), request unit #9 or #10 for the views and the massive outdoor balcony space, as well as the fact that these are the quietest. Though it's a hike up the stairs from parking, the views are well worth it and you're also very close to the pool! We stayed in #9 and #10 was adjacent to us.”
