About the Owner, Ms Janet Armstrong

I bought the property off plan so the area was just a building site when I was it. However, it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Year property purchased 2006
Why this location? I wanted somewhere that was family friendly, accessible without a car and suitable for holidays all year round and this is Ste Maxime. It is very much alive all year round with approximately 14,000 local residents. There are modern shopping facilities, traditional markets, pedestrianised streets, a marina, numerous bars, cafes, restaurants & beaches. I intend retiring here so I opted for a gated residential domain with lots of faculties. I couldn't have made a better choice. I'm not disturbed by traffic noise, I have the use of a shared pools, I have lots of private outdoor space and I can walk into Ste Maxime in 20 minutes or get the local shuttle bus, thus avoiding the summer traffic jams too. There are also lots of local facilities, shops, restaurants, etc within 800m of the domain.
Unique benefits of property It's on a residential domain, not a holiday domain so their is a sense of community. It also doesn't become noisy and overcrowded for this reason. The apartment is larger than purpose built holiday properties and it hs loads of private outdoor space for sunbathing and al fresco dining. I love being able to eat every meal outdoors from April to mid November.

Had a great holiday here. Lovely apartment in quiet location but just minutes from town, beach and waterpark. Very spacious compared to other places we have stayed. Good pool- loads of loungers and chairs. Good local supermarkets and shops. Hardly used the car because everything was so convenient. Easy booking process and security deposit returned promptly. On site manages very nice too.
