Even after the destruction from hurricane Irma the Mont Vernon Condos were functioning with all that was necessary for an enjoyable vacation. The only draw back was the pool which was totally destroyed, but after a short walk down the beach we found a fabulous pool and restaurant. Orient Beach was destroyed but still beautiful for swimming and walks. Amaury the owner of our condo was great and met all our needs.
We have stayed in the same studio apartment for the past few years.
This studio apartment is perfect for us, Bathroom, Kitchen, Washer, Large king sized bed, living room sofa, TV, Wifi, air conditioned,lovely balcony with stunning view of Orient beach, where we watch the sunrise and sunset everyday. It is very tastefully decorated. Its location is perfect, the beach on your doorstep.
Nearby attractions are village of Grand Case, with Bistro Caraibes being one of the best restaurants there, Orient Village, with restaurants, grocery store etc. Gymfit is also nearby and offers weekly memberships.
Hurricane Irma did obviously cause a lot of damage,but we have always enjoyed our 2 weeks in St Martin, that we decided that if the airport was open and 'our' studio apartment available we were going. We have absolutely NO REGRETS about that decision. The recovery process had started, and was ongoing. Hurricane Irma did not succeed in damaging the warm welcoming nature, and the spirit of the people of St Martin.
We are returning once again in January 2019, already have the studio apartment and our flights booked.
If you are planning a trip to the Carribean, this studio apartment in Orient bay is the perfect place to go.
This studio is clean, nicely decorated, and has sliding glass doors out to a veranda with an amazing view. Comfortable king size bed, good AC. We like it and are very pleased with their service. We have been renting with Amaury & Thibault for 8 years. We are heading back again soon.
Our studio looks exactly like the picture. The landlords are very responsive to our needs. The whole resort is recovering from Irma, with constant repairs and improvements. The beach and weather are gorgeous, as usual. Beach bars and restaurants are few but are returning. We have already booked for 2019.
We enjoyed out stay very much. The view and sound of the ocean were perfect, and the studio was just a few minute's walk down to the beach. The resort was damaged by the hurricane (no pool, only some banisters on landscape stairways, etc), but the studio was very comfortable and the owner was very accommodating. The owner is also part owner of Bistrot Caraibe in Grand Case. The food there was phenomenal, and we appreciated the renters discount. We are looking forward to our return in 2019 or 2020.
