What more could you ask for $395.00 to $895.00 a week? (taxes included)

Our 3 apartments are ideal for a couple's romantic getaway, laze on the beach all day (a one minute stroll away), or swim in the HUGE pool, or play tennis, or just snuggle in our exotic king sized bed.

ADJOINING APARTMENT: communicating door can open up to accommodate larger groups of family or friends. They are one floor above ground level for added security.

PLEASE IGNORE QUOTABLE PRICES: the VRBO system does not always accurately calculate our rates over 7 nights. Email me for an accurate quote.

Because we provide high quality for low cost, our THREE apartments are heavily booked for popular months. OUR CALENDAR INDICATES THAT WE ARE BOOKED ONLY WHEN ALL OUR APARTMENTS ARE FULL but we often know of other apartments available in the same complex.

A stroll down the beach are shops and restaurants (half a mile)

A sofa bed is available in some apartments for a child or third person.

The apartments are located on hillside beside the beach. it is a short, pleasant, leisurely walk through private gardens (maybe 1.5 minutes) but not really suitable for wheelchairs or people with limited mobility.

ABOUT ORIENT BAY:

Orient Bay aka Orient Beach aka Baie Orientale is St Martin's finest. Its a truly majestic setting with the mountains rising up all around and the islands of Green Key, Tintamarre and Pinel just off shore. The bay sweeps around an East facing blue water cove that is 2 miles long. A white powdered sand beach is protected from the Atlantic waves by a coral reef, and the sea bottom has a very gradual slope. The area has been recognized as a marine reserve, and I'm told that the snorkeling in the marine park is very good. ??The center of the beach is very developed. It is the most popular and the busiest beach on the island. Lined with tiki huts, colorful beach chairs and restaurants. There is a lot of action with many water sports facilities including parasailing, waterskiing and boat hire. Kite surfers often use this beach and its rolling waves are good for body surfing too. Here you will also find shops and restaurants, some with live bands on busy nights. You can stroll in the surf and view sun-worshippers in all shapes and sizes passing by. Strains of Salsa, Bachata, or Merengue music waft over you from the bars that dot the beach.??

The Bay is said to be made up of five beaches... Kontiki, Kakao, Bikini Beach, Waikiki and Coco Beach. But these names are used to define parts of one glorious sandy strip by referring to the nearest beach bar. In fact, Orient Bay boasts numerous restaurants, bars, shops and hotels along the beach.??At the farthest (Southern) end of the beach is Club Orient, the island´s only naturist resort. Clothing is optional in front of the Orient Club. In fact. nudity is considered permissible throughout the beach but not common at our end (a mile from Club Orient) except for early morning walkers around 8.00 am. ??We are at the QUIET NORTHERN END OF THE BEACH.

We have a fabulous pool beside the sea. There is a pizzeria, launderette and grocery on site and Grand Case, heralded as 'the gastronomic capital of the Caribbean' is about 2 miles away by road.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: In many ways we are a normal happy couple, eager to please our guests, eager to provide an above average apartment at a lower than average price. But it's impossible to describe ourselves without mentioning that we have an international following too. We are probably best known because Nick was a key contributor to the creation of Yoda for Star Wars. But Nick made 53 movies, (Superman, Highlander, Krull etc) and there is little that we can tell you that you won't find by simply putting 'Nick Maley' or 'Gloria Maley' or YodaGuy' into google. There you'll discover that Nick is also a renowned international artist, that we are listed on Yahoo as a 'famous married couple', that a lot of our past guests like to sing our praises (as you will see if you read our guestbook too), and that Nick has a following on Twitter / StarWarsYodaGuy and facebook. If you really want to know more you should check out the websites 'AboutNickMaley' and 'thatYodaGuy' (just add dotcom). There is also our non-profit foundation FYSF.de. Of Course the best way to know us is to come stay at one of our apartments or visit us at our Philipsburg movie museum.

Why the Owner Chose Mont-Vernon 1, Cul-de-Sac, Saint Martin:
OUR APARTMENT stands out for all the reasons described in the "about us" section PLUS we provide above average quality and service at a less than average price. St Martin/St Maarten stands out in the islands for several reasons... (i) there is more to do here. (ii) the governments spend more to upgrade the tourist product all the time. (iii) The restaurants are plentiful and VERY good. (iv) The duty free shopping is the best in the Caribbean. (v) Two nations French/Dutch provide a more varied experience than other islands

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
They ask us to describe unique benefits guests enjoy while staying at our property. Unique is hard. There are other apartments close to the beach. There are other apartments with every amenity we can think of too. There are other apartments that have great style and other apartments that are a great price. MAYBE there are other apartments that provide shampoo and paper towels, beach towels and all the nicities that most owners forget. But all of these things combined... PLUS we have the highest number of 5 ***** reviews of any studio apartment in Orient Bay... PLUS staying with a Star Wars personality... now that's unique.
