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!"

"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:-)"

"Great break from Canadian winter! Our first family vacations since the birth of our baby were close to perfect thanks to this amazing accommodation. The house is clean, comfortable, well equipped and we enjoyed very much the pool and outdoor facilities. The little village of Orient bay is at walking distance so is the beach. Having a car is however necessary if you wish to see the most of St-Martin. Sonia and Martial were very welcoming and helpful hosts. We recommand this proprety if you are looking for casual, relaxing and amazing vacations. Thank you again Sonia! Sabine, Simon and Alexandre
Une belle façon d'échapper à l'hiver canadien!
Des premières vacances en famille quasi-parfaite avec notre bébé de 3 mois grâce à ce magnifique logement! La maison est propre, bien équipée et nous avons bien profité de la piscine et des installations extérieures. Le village de la Baie d'Orientale et la plage sont à quelques minutes à pied. Une voiture est toutefois fort utile pour visiter Saint-Martin. Sonia et Martial sont des hôtes chaleureux,courtois et avenants. Nous recommandons fortement cette propriété si vous désirez passer des vacances relaxantes sans souci. Merci encore Sonia et Martial ! Sabine, Simon et Alexandre."

"We just finished our first stay at this villa and had a wonderful time. Our family vacation comprised 8 adults so we made use of the whole villa both upstairs and downstairs. The villa is nice and clean and beautiful; the pool is clean and inviting and was used every day; the beach really is only a 5 minute walk away; the television had more than enough to keep some of the younger adults happy; and all of us used the WIFI with no issues. The kitchen was well equipped and had an induction stove which was a first for us and we used it often. There were 3 or 4 French coffee/pastry shops on the walk to the beach and we used them frequently. There are 6 or so great restaurants where we ate dinner on two evenings. There is also a very well stocked convenience/grocery store. The beach has great sand and bars/restaurants with clean rest rooms and chairs/umbrellas can be rented from several restaurants ($20 or less for two chairs and an umbrella). We grilled out at the villa twice and we drove to Grand Case (very short ride) on two nights - once to visit the much recommended LOLO named Taste of the Town and then another to visit a French restaurant (of which there are many). We completed every jigsaw puzzle we could find. We met both the owner and property manager and they were very responsive and helpful.
Very happy with our choice to stay at this villa!
