Recent Orient Bay reviews
Amazing duplex and great location!
"We stayed here with two adults and two teenagers and absolutely loved it!
The entire wall opens up in the front, allowing a constant ocean breeze to flow right through. The view is unobstructed and absolutely incredible! Everything was very clean, the kitchen was well-stocked, and we couldn't have asked for more.
We stayed during June, so not everything on the beach was open, but there were still several choices for dinner just a walk down the beach.
There was a lot of seaweed when we stayed because there was a combination of high sea temperatures and storms out at sea, but we learned that this is not very common. We were still able to enjoy the beach and the beautiful pool every day.
It was nice to be near the restaurants and activities of Orient Beach, but staying at the quieter area of the beach.
The assigned covered parking spot was also a big plus.
This was our first time to St Martin, and after thoroughly exploring the entire island, I'm confident we made the best choice for us in accommodations!"

"We spent 8 days in this very nice rental. We chose it for location and beautiful ocean view. You could walk from the condo to Orient Beach and it was heavenly. The unit was very nice with everything we needed. Just a few minor repairs on a couple things could be done, but nothing substantial. Just an FYI for those choosing any unit in Mont Vernon, it does required a lot of walking as you go from the parking lot to any unit. There is no close parking. We found a great grocery store just a short drive away with everything we needed. We were pleasantly greeted by Bruno who was very helpful with explaining how everything worked as well as great directions on getting to this place from the airport. Driving anywhere on the island was easy once you grasp the narrow roads and local drivers. We would definitely book again because we were all about the ocean view location. We spent everyday on the beach!"

"We have been traveling to St Martin every year for the last 20 years or so staying at various places within the Orient Bay vicinity. This year as the villa we normally stay at was booked we stayed here. The villa is absolutely gorgeous - very spacious with plenty of room and amenities. With one bedroom upstairs and one down - it affords privacy for all! There are a total of 2 1/2 baths, a fabulous kitchen stocked with all tools necessary and even those you did not think you needed. The deck/ pool area is again terrific - we enjoyed using the Jacuzzi every night! Consider eating at Rancho del Sol - we ate there twice and the food was great and reasonably priced."

"Villa Comtesse is a wonderful place to stay while on vacation in St Martin! We rented the villa for ten days for just the two of us but it is big enough for a large family or two couples. Everything we could possibly need was there and it was such a comfortable place to stay and relax. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need to cook a nice dinner and we grilled out in the back garden a few times while we were there. There is a very nice garden area right outside the back door and we sat out there every morning for coffee and every evening just to relax and talk about our wonderful day. The pool is within footsteps of the villa, although it was always very quiet and only a few people taking advantage of it. The beach and restaurants/shops at Orient Village are within a 5 minute walk and it was nice to know we never had to go far on any given day. The small grocery market(Casino is the name) was wonderful and the prices compared with the large grocery store which is only about a 5 minute drive away going towards Grand Case.
If you are wanting to watch television with English as the language, instead of French, there are about ten channels that are in English. We brought our Google Chromecast adaptor and plugged it into the side of the tv and we were able to watch Netflix or Hulu at night after returning home from dinner.
Greg(and his wife), our concierge for the owners, were there to meet us immediately upon our arrival and helped us with any questions we had on our vacation. There were never any problems with the villa the whole time we were there and that was a wonderful thing!
The owners have taken great care of this property and I highly recommend this to anyone wanting a relaxing vacation. My only hope for giving such a wonderful review of Villa Comtesse is that it is not booked the next time we want to go down there. It's a little hidden jewel:-)"
