Recent Orient Bay reviews

  • Excellent!

    "My wife and I stayed here for 11 nights in November and it was great. We opted for this size unit over a studio to give us some extra room but what really made this ideal was the location of the unit, the reserved parking spot and how well equipped the unit is. As others have commented, the kitchen is well stocked and included little things zip lock bags, aluminum foil, spices, etc.. We drove to several other beaches during our stay and the beach chairs and umbrella were excellent - portable but substantial (not your Walmart one time use items) and several coolers from which to choose. There are 2 remote controlled A/C units that are whisper quiet (not sure why hotels don't use these?) and the electric storm shutters not only keep the morning light out but made us feel secure at night. Marie-France was easy to deal with and very responsive. She met us at the unit, gave us the quick tour, left us a local cell phone to use and made sure we felt "at home". I highly recommend this unit! We have rented from VRBO many times and this one is the best so far. We don't usually re-visit the same place but might have to make an exception for this one!"

  • Perfect Villa!

    "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."

  • Great House, So-So Management

    "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."

  • great gateway

    "Famille avec 2 ado pour une semaine de vacances. Avons beaucoup aimé le magnifique appartement. Moderne, grand et confortable. Avec toutes les commodités. Très propre et super tranquille. La vue est exceptionnelle avec piscine et plage presque désertique. Martine et son conjoint sont des plus chaleureux et accueillants. L'appartement est bien situé. Pour ceux qui ne sont pas allés à St-Martin, il faut louer une voiture pour profiter de son séjour. pas de problème pour stationner la voiture. Seul petit bémol, l'appartement étant à flanc de montagne, il faut être en forme car il y a beaucoup d'escalier. Mais ça vaut le coup car la vue et la tranquillité se méritent! On vous le recommande chaudement."
