“Very Very Special Place!”
My husband and I stayed here for 11 nights in November. We were not disappointed by the condo or the view. We were on the 3rd floor of the building and had a wonderful view of orient and beyond. We have stayed at Mt. Vernon before in a different condo and this one was much nicer in décor and layout. We did rent a car and if you are staying in Mt Vernon for very long you really need a car. There is a lot of walking and it is hilly but we did not mind. We had some TV issue but made due (we were not here to watch TV). It was nice that toilet paper was in the condo and paper towels, not sure if this is the usual here but the condo we rented here before nothing was included. Orient was SOOO disappointing this time the sea weed was terrible. In front of Mt. Vernon I think once a week the beach was plowed and the sea weed removed but between Mt Vernon and the main Orient area it was bad. Joanna was wonderful to work with and always a quick response to emails. Super fast return on deposit. Wi Fi works wonderful. Would come back here in a heart beat!
“Wake up to beautiful ocean views and warm trade winds”
My wife and I stayed in this studio for a week in early January 2014 and we were extremely pleased with every aspect. The owners are very responsive and friendly. When we arrived, the caretaker was awaiting our arrival with a smile and offered reserved parking and an efficient check in. Very friendly and happy to accomodate us in whatever we needed. When we walked in, there were no suprises, except the amazing view! The pictures are exact and the view in person is even better. Wi-fi and TV are good. Decoration and style is chic and European. Great use of space. Ac is good if you need it. The old vacated hotel building adds some romance to the grounds, and the small stores in Mont Vernon were a convenience, even though the Simply Market was an easy 5 minute drive. We found a new restaurant every night very close by, and every meal was delicious. The full service in-studio kitchen allowed us to eat breakfast and lunch in, enjoying the beach, then just dining out once a day in the evening for dinner. The pool is very nice, and the beach is irresistable. Short walk to dine, drink, and enjoy just down the beach. Everyone was very friendly and happy. All in all, we enjoyed this relaxing vacation and studio so much, we've already booked a stay next January.
“We will be back!!”
Our stay at this studio condo located at the former Mont Vernon Hotel was outstanding! The photos and information about the condo are completely truthful. This studio condo is on the French side and nicely placed on the north end of Orient Bay with a view of St Barts and all of Orient Bay. Grand Case is close with it's great restaurants and shops, and and a good market called Simpley is close. There is good security and we felt totally safe. This studio condo is a great find. The condo is located on the top floor so you do need to negotiate a few stairs. Linda, the property manger, and her husband helped us with our bags and were very good in explaining how everything works. The condo has a good a/c and TV both with remote controls. For people not accustomed to European standards, don't expect maid service or fresh towels every day, that said there is a European washer/dryer in the bathroom and you can get additional cleaning service for a fee. The bed was fantastic as was the couch. The kitchen is modern of French design, with lighted cabinets, European frig and modern electric stove and microwave. Have Linda explain about how the stove works (it was great to cook on (for electric), but took a bit of figuring out). Everything in the studio is new. We ate most of our meals in and kitchen works well. There are restaurants down the beach and in Grand Case. If you need something there is a small store in the complex. This is a great deal both in location and price. We will be coming back and have told all our island friends about the place. The former Mont Vernon Hotel is like a majestic old dowager which, while a bit dated and in need of a new dress, is still charming . One can see the splendor of the past and the potential of the future. The pool has been upgraded and is clean and very nice. The exteriors and landscaping need work but the paths lead directly to the beach just a minute away. We highly recommend this studio at Mont Vernon on Orient Bay.
“Wake up to an amazing view”
I went to st.martin for my anniversary trip. As soon as I walked into the studio the first thing i noticed was the turquoise waters right outside the balcony/sliding doors. Nothing blocks your amazing ocean view. If you wanted, you could open up the big wall to wall glass sliding doors and get an ocean breeze flowing through the room (as we did). The studio itself is very clean and simply decorated with orange whites and grays. The bathroom shower feels great after a long day under the sun. I would recommend renting a car once you've gotten settled. It would make sightseeing so much easier and there is free parking at the property. Not so hard to find your way around... There is really only one main road that can take you around the island. Honestly, I just followed the other cars & the free map from the airport helped too. If you don't want to leave the Orient bay area... There is plenty to do. There is a very small grocery store on the property by the main entrance with a little restaurant and two computers for paid internet usage. I saw a sign for WiFi by the restaurant/store but i didn't bother trying to use it. The beach is a short walk down the hill through the pool area. The end of the beach where the property is, is very quiet. There aren't too many people so finding a place for you to lay and relax will not be a problem. If you want to party, eat or do some water sports. All you have to do is walk down the beach. We found some great beach bars/restaurants. And all of the places we went into took dollars or euro but we used a visa card. I saw a lot of para-sailing, kite surfing and wave runners that I wouldn't mind trying on my next trip. I could go on and on about our wonderful stay but i recommend you come and see for yourself. Important tip: Not a hotel, so make sure you give the owner the time you'll arrive so the manager knows when to meet you. If you arrive early, wave down a security guard to help you contact the manager (they'll be happy to help)
“Amazing place with a breathtaking view”
We had a wonderful stay in St. Martin! It was a very relaxing experience. The accommodations were exceptional and the view of Orient Bay was breathtaking. We really enjoyed sitting out on the porch every morning as the sun came up. The apartment was brand new, as advertised. It had a warm feeling with a modern clean approach. This location is perfect for long walks on the beach. There are also opportunities for variety of water sports. We feel that Orient Beach is the best beach on the island. Only two miles away is Grand Case known for its fine French dining. The capital Marigot is a short ride beyond Grand Case and also has great restaurants and other tourist attractions. We certainly will be back for another vacation.
