Recent Orient Bay reviews
"I rented this place with 3 of my friends and we were not disappointed! A great view, close to Pinel Island, Grand Case, Orient Village and of course the view of Orient Beach and St. Barts in the distance. The pictures are exactly how the condo looks. There is a grocery store nearby for food to get while on your trip if you want to cook at home. Kitchen has pretty much everything you need! We all decided we would love to come back to this condo as well as the island. What a great experience! The owner and her daughter were always quick to respond to questions via email, and very flexible when my flight got delayed and we had to check in later. Thanks Sabine and Suzon!"

"La Martiniere is a well designed house with stunning views over Orient Bay with St. Barth's in the distance. The deck area by the pool is particularly nice. You can be in the shade no matter what time of day. The beds are comfortable and all the appliances worked well. The plantings around the pool and side of the house are very attractive. Even though the steep, narrow driveway is a bit of a challenge, the house and grounds are definitely five star.
We were met promptly on our arrival by Jean-Phillippe from the property managers. He quickly showed us some of the basics: How the safe box works; how to make the metal window guards go up and down, etc. He left quickly without telling us how to work to clothes washer with its French instructions; how to work the various remotes; what the alarm? gadget at the pool was and how it worked; and before we could ask our questions. He said he didn't know about the housekeeping schedule, but would get back to us. He didn't. He also said he'd check on us later in the week. He didn't.
The otherwise helpful binder with information about the house and area said the "housekeeper will be in every day except Sunday for a few hours to clean and place fresh linens." On another page it said the housekeeper would come either "every 4th day or so," every other day, or every day except Sunday. We had no housekeeping services. The lead property manager told us that on instructions from the owner there were no housekeeping services during our stay. This is really no big deal, but the written policy needs to be made accurate. More important is that there was mold on the wall in the master bath, a few roaches, and a bunch of dead insects in a corner of the living room. One mosquito repellant device was low on oil. The other was empty. We bought the oil and a third device at the local store, so had little trouble with mosquitos indoors after that. (Pest control must be hard to keep up with on the island, so we know the property managers have a challenge with it.)
Finally, we got conjunctivitis there. Given exposure and time of onset, our doctor thinks it might have come from the pool. I hope not, because otherwise, the pool is great.
We'd gladly return to La Martiniere if some of the issues (mold, pest management) issues were taken care of and especially if we knew the pool was safe."

"We rented this Villa for a two week family vacation. (6 adults). The villa was exactly as pictured. It was clean, well appointed and very nicely decorated. We were especially pleased to learn it has a backup water reserve tank. (As the island does lose water from time to time.) The two dedicated parking spots were a wonderful bonus. The fenced and gated pool and entertaining area gave us the option to stay around the pool and relax with our family; however all of Orient Bay is just a short walk away. Bruno and Sylvie are wonderful hosts. We will be back!"
