Recent Orient Bay reviews

  • A gem

    "We just got back from St-Martin and stayed at the Villa Joie de Vie. This house was great! It was spacious, clean and had all the amenities anyone can ask for. The beach was steps away and the pool was as you see in the pictures. It would have been an added bonus if the pool was heated! We were very happy with our stay and Magalie from the rental company was very helpful and available. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone and would go back!"

  • Great Trip

    "We had a great time. Nick and Gloria go out of their way to make your trip enjoyable. The apartment was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The complex is on the north end of Orient Beach and the beach is very easy to access. We're already planning our next visit and taking some friends with us."

  • A great vacation!

    "This was our sixth vacation on the island but our first time staying on the French side. On all previous trips we stayed in a time-share near Cupecoy. The booking process was easy. The owners, Tony and Brent, were very responsive throughout, including providing us with directions, information and even recommendations for dining and things to do on the island. We had a little trouble finding the property. Laurence, the owner's representative on the island, was very nice and met us at a nearby pharmacy and led us to the property and gave us a quick tour of the unit and explained how things in it worked. The unit was exactly as it appears in the pictures - clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. All of the appliances, both large and small, worked and the unit is fully stocked with dishes, glasses, cookware and utensils. We've stayed in timeshares with refrigerators that froze everything, stoves that didn't work and had a a dozen spoons and no knives, so this was a very nice experience. It was also wonderful to have a washing machine in the unit and there is a drying rack provided. There had been a storm in October that impacted the cable and phone lines for large areas of the island. As a result, the TV reception was limited to a couple channels with very grainy pictures but clear audio. We had WiFi the first day but not afterwards. The owners were very responsive to our inquiries and tried to do what they could but we understood that these things were beyond their control. We made good use of the library of DVDs they have but also brought some of our own. We were able to access WiFi in some restaurants to check emails. The view from the balcony is gorgeous and because the condo faces east we were treated to a spectacular sunrise every morning. We had no problems with hot water per a previous reviewer's complaint. Tips - Rent a car. The complex is a distance from the nearest grocery store and quite a walk down the beach to the nearest restaurants. The complex is also quite hilly with a lot of stairs so pack lightly. On a personal note to animal lovers - the island, like much of the Caribbean, has a problem with homeless dogs and cats. We make a point to buy food to give them. It doesn't solve the problem but hope that it gives them some relief."

  • Great Getaway

    "We rented "Lena's Beach Condo" for 2 weeks and it was exactly as advertised. We also rented from her last year and had no issues. I understand about peoples reluctance to wire money in advance but everything was fine. The suite is very clean and everything functioned as it should. We had a little effort to figure out how to run the washing machine because the instructions are in French but after some time we figured it out. The view from the condo is beautiful just like her pictures look. The pool has been updated with a new liner. The walk to the beach is only a few minutes but it is a little steep. Parking is busy in the lot closest to the condo but plan on parking below by the tennis courts. It is a little walk up hill but their is usually plenty of room. We had a very enjoyable time in the condo. It is as advertised. We plan on coming back again next year!"
