Why Schmitt Marion chose Orient Bay
We decided to buy condos on Orient bay because, we live there and we would like to be near our guests if they have any questions, or something else. We love this place, because it is on one of the best beaches in the Caribbean with plenty of white powdery sand and great views of the small islands of Tintamarre, Pinel and Green Cay.

Our home away from home destination!
Beautiful renovated ground floor unit
Plan to be back in January
As always we had an amazing trip and Marion was a fantastic host. Can’t wait to come back.
Clean/Attractive condo is great for couple who want to relax, close to beach & restaurants
What we liked best: well decorated condo, free off-street parking, and personal outdoor space on the "ocean side" that was also very close to the shared pool. The floor unit is convenient for loading/unloading the car in a reserved space. Orient beach is supposedly one of the best on the island and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The nude beach is also only about 5-10 min walk away. There are places to eat and drink along the beach and the food was excellent. The owner gave us good recommendations for things to do and places to eat, though we could not do everything on this trip--maybe next time. The television has many channels in various languages/international stations. The area is in a semi-private gated community so there is no "through-traffic". So, the feeling of privacy and safety is enhanced. There are shopping and restaurants nearby. The Owner invited us to contact her at any time during our stay if there were questions or problems. The whole island can be driven/explored easily.
What could be improved: Perhaps, more written information on where things are in the apartment and how to check-out. For example, we used bath towels at the beach, instead of the beach towels we discovered on our last morning there, which were not readily visible as they were on a low shelf under a folded shopping bag in the hallway table. We didn't operate the clothes washer because we were unfamiliar with the Euro unit, though the Owner did offer to show us this upon arrival. So, this was our fault. There are many stray cats in Orient Bay, including several around our building. I think this may be common for the island and other places but it is still worth noting. Some used the area outside our door as a litter box, which was not pleasant.....
Our review for the area of Orient Beach in general , outside of the apartment, was that we liked it. We visited during the start of slow season so the area was somewhat empty. So, the pulse/energy of the place was very laid back and quiet. We liked not having to fight over dinner tables but wished the bars were busier (or open) at night. Definitely, rent a car if you want to get to busier areas like Grand Case, etc. Service at restaurants is VERY slow, by American standards. Though, this is probably normal for the islands and Europeans. You have to ask for the check, as they don' t seem to want to ask if you are ready for it. Food was relatively expensive. Mixed drinks typically $10-12US
Loved Le Cozi & the beautiful island of St. Martin!
My husband and I just returned from a wonderful week on the island of St. Martin. We were greeted by the owner of the condo and everything was absolutely perfect! We couldn't have asked for anything more! Thank you. Marion for allowing us to stay in your condo! We will be back!

It was a pleasure to meet and welcome you at Le Cozi.

J'ai passé une semaine fort agréable dans l’appartement de Marion et Emmanuel. Aussi, l’accueil de Marion était très chaleureux. Je recommande vivement un séjour dans ce lieu de bien-être et de repos !
I spend a wonderful week in Marion and Emmanuel’s apartment. Marion’s was extremely welcoming and I strongly recommend a visit to this fine home from home.
Que du bonheur
Appartement idéalement situé, proche de la plage, des commerces (supérette, pain) et des restos. L'appartement était d'une propreté exemplaire, ménage fait en fin de semaine, au milieu de notre séjour, serviettes et draps changés.
Nous avons été très agréablement surpris par le confort (literie de très bonne qualité), l’espace et la superbe vue. Il est tel que sur les photos.
Merci beaucoup à Marion pour son accueil chaleureux, sa gentillesse, sa ponctualité, ses conseils.
