Recent Orient Bay reviews
Haven't even been there yet and impressed with service!
"I felt the need to write a review before we have even arrived on the island, because I am so impressed with the owners. We inquired with different owners about several properties on different parts of the island as we were trying to narrow down where we wanted to stay. Some owners either never responded or took so long to respond that we assumed the property was unavailable and they just hadn't updated their calendars. This is not the case with Tony and Brent. They have been very fast to respond to our messages, and have answered all of our questions thoroughly and thoughtfully. We even asked about one small concern in one of the reviews, and they went to the point of saying they would look into changing something the next time they are on the island. This was certainly not our expectation, and beyond what I have seen owners offer to do with any other rentals we've used on vrbo. We had a short list of places we decided we'd enjoy renting, but Troy and Brent's service was so impeccable, that we easily and quickly made the decision to stay in their place. We are confident we will be happy with our decision once we're there!"

Awesome villa and location for a perfect holiday in St Martin
"My friends and I rented this villa for 2 1/2 weeks. The villa was the perfect place to unwind and use as a base to explore St Martin. The villa is well appointed, very clean, and has everything one would need to make it an awesome stay! It was exactly as described and as shown in the pictures. It was great to have a Nespresso coffee on the patio every morning! Orient Bay was ~1 block away and an easy walk to the village, beach and numerous restaurants. The private pool was an oasis and provided a great area for entertaining. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this villa. Bruno and Patricia were excellent hosts! I highly recommend this villa for the perfect holiday in St Martin. I will definitely be back!"

"This property is gorgeous. 1 Master bed/bath on one side, and 2 beds and shared bath on the other, separated in the middle by the open kitchen and living room. Although we never used anything on the other side of the house, I imagine it would be ideal for larger groups traveling together. It is a perfectly private deck that spans the entire length of the house. I noticed very little mosquitoes, although my wife got bit a bunch. Nothing a little insect repellent can't handle. There is a key coded security gate for the street, and another security gate for the property itself. There are TONS of food choices very close by, including a Simply Market which has anything you could want. It's a very quiet neighborhood, with friendly (but not nosy) people. We looked forward to coming back every single day so we could take a dip in the pool and relax.
The only less-than-perfect things i could mention:
There is a refundable deposit equal to 1/3 of the entire rental fee that i was not made aware of until the day before I left. This wasn't a problem at all, but it would have been nice to know this when reading the property description. Believe me when I say that 1/3 is a perfectly reasonable request for a property of this quality. It just would have been nice to know beforehand. With a place this popular, finding time to perform basic maintenance could prove to be tricky. We were told that every 15 days the landscapers show up to work. This happened during our stay. We got woken up to the sounds of raking and leaf blowers at 7:30am which lasted about two hours. We also were told that the pool guy comes every Wednesday, which he did. He wasn't intrusive, but I'm glad we knew about it in advance. Lastly, Greg the Property Manager showed up unannounced. He knocked on the door, which woke my wife and I up from a nice afternoon nap, and knocked a second time. After I answered and explained we were sleeping, he apologized and said he was just checking up to see if we were OK. He then watered the property for about an hour. He was a super nice guy and very professional, so I don't wish this to get him in any trouble of any kind. It still would have been nice if we were made aware that he would be coming by at a certain time. In the future, it seems that these 3 things could be combined to let the guests have a bit more seclusion and privacy. This is the only reason for a 4 star review, and not a 5. We'd love to book another vacation here and try for that 5th star!"
