I found this rental on TripAdvisor after returning from our first visit to St. Martin. When we started planning our return to the island for our anniversary, I was happy to find it available. The Residence Mont Vernon is a great location to be close to all that Orient offers, but still feel a bit tucked away. We also love being close to Grand Case. The property itself is beautiful. The studio was a perfect size for my husband and I. The kitchen was well equipped, and we really appreciated the use of the beach chairs and towels. We didn't take advantage of the paid parking, but lucked out with close parking almost every day. We didn't mind the walk up the hill, but can see the difficulty it would be for anyone with trouble navigating hills and slopes. Vitaliy was a pleasure to work with and was very responsive, even after our arrival. I appreciate the little personal touches very much and would highly recommend this studio to anyone looking for a quiet, central St. Martin vacation.
I can't believe I forgot to take photos of the interior, but it does look exactly like the listing and was very clean.
We just made our 15th trip to St. Martin and our first 5 week vacation. We love the Mont Vernon complex with the security & a wonderful pool. Yes the road there & the parking needs some improvement, but the views & the beach make it all worthwhile! We walked the beach daily and read books by the pool. A great time was had by all!
This is our second stay at Vitaliy's place, and we enjoyed every minute of it. Great air conditioning, wifi, comfortable furniture and everything you need is available. Fridge, toaster, coffee maker, microwave, dishwasher and even a washing machine are there for you to use. The unit is conveniently located close to the top of the hill, so the climb up is brief. On the premises is a pizzeria with a wide choice of delicious dishes, a laundry/cleaner as well as a small convenience store. A bigger food market is just a few minutes drive away where you can stock up on your essentials. The Simply store has been bought out by another company and was at the time under renovation. Furthermore, if you need to rent a car, there is a car rental agency owned by Herve, the proprietor of the laundry shop who provides a great service with very reasonable rates. Pool on the premises is very good, and Orient beach is just a few minutes away. Vitaliy's place is starting to feel like our second home. Can't wait to come back again.
We stayed for nine nights at the Orient Beach residence. We were met by Linda at the prearranged time. She showed us all of the features of the apartment, which includes a washing machine, dishwasher, and satellite TV. Vitaliy, the owner, contacted me quickly after check in to make sure everything was OK. . PROS: clean, well equipped kitchen, comfy bed. Quiet. CONS: the rental is not just a few steps to the beach. It is on a hillside and its a hiketo the pool and beach. The reserved parking is also down the hill. If you're physically infirm, or just out of shape ( like me) you may find this to be a problem.
Overall, though, this is a great value. TIP: get directions! I forgot to ask, and it took us a while to find it.
We stayed here for 1 week after staying on the dutch side of the island for 1 week. We were happy this place was such a short walk to the beach which had lots of activities and beach bars. It is also close to Pinel Island which has a very nice beach (nicer than orient). The condo was very clean, nice, and had good AC. The pizza place close to the entrance has very good pizza too.
