La Maison du Morinant is a delightful holiday rental. It is ideally located between the beaches on the south coast of the island and St Martin and is a short bicycle ride away from the bakery and market at Le Bois Plage.
The house is very comfortable and well fitted out, with many thoughtful touches such as dvds, games, books and magazines. It is the sort of rental where it would not be the end of the world if it rained - i.e. unlike some of the French rentals we've experienced, you are not desperate to leave the house!
We would definitely recommend this house and would not hesitate to return.

We stayed at Maison du Morinant for a week in June 2011, and it was fantastic. We had visited Ile de Re the previous year, when we stayed in a hotel, but after seeing the local produce and food markets, which were some of the best i've seen anywhere, we really wanted to come back self catering, so we could take advantage of it.
This house was ideally situated for us, being mid way between the beaches at Le Bois Plage, and St Martin, it was an easy 5 / 10 min cycle to both. The food market in Le Bois is only a 5 minute cycle too.
Holidaying as two couples, it had proved difficult to find a property with two double bedrooms, and two bathrooms, and this fitted the bill well at a very reasonable price.
The house is very well equipped, the kitchen had everything we needed (even an oyster shucking knife which came in handy).
We would not hesitate to stay in this property again, and definately hope to return.
