About the property

Studio, 1 King size bed + 1 single sofa bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

Situated in private gardens adjacent to a spectacular beach, the studio is the perfect blend of ECONOMY and LUXURY. 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 delightful king sized bed. Completely renovated, the studio is fully equipped with king size bed, Internet, air condition, microwave, coffee pot, stove top, toaster, sofa bed, TV, DVD's and player, DVDs, CD player. I SPEAK ENGLISH AND LIVE ON THE ISLAND so you can find me if you need to solve a problem or an advice.

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 so 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.

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 have a fabulous pool beside the sea and Boo Boo Jam beach bar is about 200 meters away. There is a pizzeria, launderette and grocery on site and Grand Case, heralded as 'the gastronomic capital of the Caribbean' is about a mile away by road.

Taxi's know the location known as Hotel Mont Vernon and we meet you at the former reception building.

Why Alban chose World

After a quick scan at the available properties on the island I discovered the Mont vernon residence which was actually a very famous hotel years before and immediatly fell in love with the spot. The view, the gardens, the pool on the shore, the breeze made me feel in vacation again !!!

Studio at Mt Vernon

  • 4 of 5

Albans studio is good value and he is very responsive. We had a small problem with a circuit breaker, and being only familiar with 110v vs 220v we were able to get a msg to him and it was fixed promptly.

As readers we could have used more light at night inside. Otherwise, it was quite comfortable.

A short 5 minute walk brings you to Orient Beach with all of it's activity.

A car is a must if you want to see the Island. But if not there is plenty to do and shopping along the beach.

We had a car and found some wonderful quiet beaches.

Fully renovated with all conveniences. Verycomfortable mattress and great wifi.

  • 5 of 5

As usual, staying at MontVernon is extraordinary. Not sure why anyone stays elsewhere on the beach, as these are the least expensive places, yet offer mini kitchens that the hotels do not, as well as much more privacy. The view from this side of the beach is endlessly beautiful and the access to both a great pool and the ocean is excellent. Very safe grounds with a local pizzeria on site and beach restaurants a 10 minute walk. Have been coming for twenty years.

Good value

  • 4 of 5

Great location and good value, sufficient accommodations.

Super fast Wi-Fi, HBO and a very responsive landlord.

The best beach on the Island if you are looking for lots of activities. Close to dining and some remote beaches if you want to hike.

On site small snack bar/restaurant. Laundry drop off service at a reasonable rate.

Enjoyed our two weeks there.

The property is as described. It is clean and well maintained. Everything works as it should.

  • 5 of 5

The owner lives on the island, and is there for check in and check out, on time. He speaks English, as well as French. The property is as described in wording and pictures. TV has four channels in English-CNN, HBO, NBC, and one other, as well as channels in French. The property is ground floor, with partial ocean view. The property is spotless, and the owner is a good guy.

We Will Be Back!

  • 4 of 5

Alban is a wonderful host. He met us right on time, even though it was Christmas day. The studio was perfect for our family of 3. The views are beautiful and the location perfect. You must have a car if you want to see St. Maarten. There is so much to do and see and it is really only 40 minutes even in bad traffic to get to the other side of the island. If you don't go at rush hour it is much less time. Even with that being said, I think Orient Bay was our favorite location. We could sit on the patio in the morning and watch the boats, kite surfers and even parachuters several times a day. It is just a quick walk to a lovely pool with nice covered seating and steps away from the beach. What more could you ask for? We often times had the pool to ourselves. It was just quiet and lovely the entire week. If you want a little bit more fun you can walk up the beach to Waikiki or several other places along the way that are a 10-minute walk at most where you can rent chairs have cocktails and jet ski, parasail or banana boat. The waves and the warmth of the water were fantastic. There are also several little restaurants in the area with beautiful sweeping views of the ocean. We tried a Tex Mex place a 5 minute drive from Mount Vernon. It was very yummy, great service and the view was the added bonus. There's also a small shop and pizza place open in the condos and the pizza was very good. We enjoyed it. There's also a little place that does laundry which is good so that you can clean your towels. Albon provides three towels for bathing and three nice towels for the beach. But for Americans use to having a face towel and washcloth, make sure to bring those yourself. With all the traveling we do, I've learned that not many places provide those. :-) Other than that, I think all the other reviews provide a full view of this property. You couldn't ask for a lovelier week in the Caribbean at a better price. Oh and Alban is very quick to get back to you and he is also a wonderful guitarist. He plays on the island and even made reservations for us to come and see him play. What a great treat. I highly recommend that you go to see him at Pineapple Pete's if he's playing there.
