“This Studio Condo is super for a vacation stay on Orient Beach.”
We want to highly recommend renting studio condo #3211 from Armaury and Thibault. It has a super view of the rocky bluffs and beautiful shoreline that sit below the Mt. Vernon complex. We loved that they now have a key to the condo in a digital lockbox by the front door of the condo and they gave us the password to the lockbox via email without us having to meet in person at whatever time we arrived there. They wanted to come over the next day to handle the paperwork but we told them we would come by their restaurant the next day to take care of it when we were shopping and they agreed. It was super convenient. The condo itself was perfect for us and exactly as advertised. We didn't cook on this trip but instead used the microwave to heat leftovers from meals we ate in town. The condo was quiet, romantic, and ideal for the two of us.
We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation in a lovely condo nestled in Mt. Vernon. The owners Amaury & Thibault were very warm and when we had any questions, they answered them immediately. The whole condo was in great shape and the view amazing overlooking Orient Beach. Easy walk to the pool which was close to the beach. The kitchen was perfect for our needs. We also ate at their restaurant which was great. We'll be back!!!
We stayed two weeks in one of amaury's studios and had an excellent time. We enjoyed our mornings and evenings on the balcony. The view of Orient Beach is fantastic. We set up chairs at the pool each day and swam in it and the ocean each day. The walks up and down from the parking lots and pool to the studio kept us in shape but are not for the sedentary. Its just a short drive to the market, Orient Village and Grand Case restaurants. We will be back!
We had a great stay at amaury's condo for our honeymoon. The property is exactly as it's described. The bed was comfortable, the shower had good pressure, the kitchen was excellent for making a meal or two. The balcony of our unit overlooked the grassy yard, the pool, and the beach. We had breakfast out there everyday, and often wine and snacks after a day at the beach. One of my favorite parts of the apartment was the black-out shade over the balcony door. We've stayed in other beach property where the sun was so blazing in the morning that we were up with the roosters everyday but here, when we wanted to sleep in we could close the shade and it was pitch black. The beach nearby was really quiet. We were looking for quiet and relaxing, so it was perfect for us. If you are looking for a party you may want to consider a different beach. That said, a 7 minute walk down the beach were a number of bars and restaurants with decent food and good service. You need a car at this property. We rented from automax (recommended by amaury). I'd read some horror stories about car rental scams on the island, but you can definitely feel safe with automax. The property is about a 10 minute drive to the town of Grand Case which has incredible restaurants. Bistro Caribes, Amaury's restaurant, was the best meal of the trip). Don't be afraid of the outdoor bbq restaurants too. They are great food and a really fun experience. The grocery store was nearby and there's a wine store called The Grape right around the corner from it. They were very nice and helpful. If you decide to do any excursions, I recommend Rhino Boats in Philipsburg. It was great fun to drive a boat on the open water. And the snorkeling and sight seeing were excellent, too. I can honestly say that we had a wonderful trip. The apartment was a fantastic home base, and St. Martin is quite simply one of the most beautiful places on the planet. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
Just returned from our 3rd stay in a Mont Vernon studio & we would not stay anywhere else. The location is perfect: a short walk to Orient Beach; one mile to the grocery store; 2 miles into Grand Case & it's fabulous restaurants. And you absolutely cannot beat the price. Thibault & Amaury are great hosts & great you like an old friend when you visit their (wonderful) restaurant. Maybe the best thing is that you are living among the locals - not a bunch of loud, partying tourists that act like they've never been on vacation before - it's laid back & quiet. This is a place for seasoned, experienced travelers.
“Best vacation Ever”
Can't say enough of our accommodations everything was as described in pictures and writing. Amaury and his brother were fabulous there restaurant in Grand Case was amazing. Location of property superb right on Orient beach pool clean and wonderful to bath and relax with breeze from ocean and sound of the waves. One hint though staying on the French side a car is essential (small one) easier to park and drive on island roads. From Mt Vernon site access to grocery store 5 minutes away were you can buy all you need and only 10 minutes from Grand Case. It was wonderful to wake each morning and a short walk along Orient beach to Orient circle were there are bakeries to sit and have coffee as well the best pastries i have ever had. Having a car enables you to drive to Phillipsburg on the Dutch side approx. 25 minutes as well you are able to explore the compete island. I could go on and on, this was such a wonderful location, fantastic owners and island itself incredible. We enjoyed so much that we have reserved for next Christmas first time ever returning to same location the following year.
“A Coozy place”
We live in the cold mountains in South america and were travelling and diving during one month in Bonaire, Curacao, St. Barth and anguilla, but our stay in St Marteen was the best thanks amaury and his coozy Studio!!!. It has all you need for a confortable stay, and the view is Increible!!!. Don´t miss this experience!!!
“This is our home on St. Martin”
We have stayed at Mont Vernon before, and gladly return there to enjoy the convenience to Orient Beach, the restaurants of Grand Case, and the debarkation point to Pinel Island. The manager/owners of the residences (brothers amaury and Thibault) maintain their units in pristine condition, and if something's not right, they make it so -- quickly without delay. If you are the type (like my wife and I) who prefer to spend less on accommodations (since we're there to sleep and change, and that's about it), so that you have more to spend on attractions and restaurants, then Mont Vernon is for you -- and specifically from these owners. Stay here with confidence that you will save money, enjoy your studio worry-free, and be at the heart of the action on the French side of SXM.
This was our second stay since 2009. One thing about the owners, they are awesome! In 2009 I sunburned my legs severely. They took me to the doctor, then I needed medicine so they took me to about 4 apothecary's to collect them all. One item arrived the next day, that also wasn't a problem. That holiday they really saved me because I could not walk for a week. The studio was clean, spacious and superbly equipped with everything you need. So this year we went back. We didn't search for another place to stay because we were so happy about this studio. We could even have the same one we stayed in 2009. Again, everything was perfect. Ideal for a couple, we ate out every evening but had breakfast on the balcony. If you want to make lunch or dinner, go get some grocery's and make your own. My wife was also very happy with the washing machine. The service is great, one day the airco was not functioning. I emailed amaury and the next day it wss fixed. The studio is excellent as a base to explore the island and very close to Pinel beach, our favourite. In the evening after dinner we sit on the balcony, enjoying the sounds, especially the roaring waves from Orient Bay. The beach is a short walk, just beyond the large swimming pool. The price is the cheapest you will find on the island. And with such a great and clean studio and with the service, it's a done deal. You won't be disappointed!
My wife and I stayed for 8 nights at one of amaury and Thibault's studios. It was perfect, nice and clean and had a beautiful view of Orient Bay. It is also fully equiped if you want to cook and enjoy to be with you and your couple. We definetively recommend it. Best Regards, Edgardo
