Nice Stay but Hurricane Damaged
We really enjoyed our stay in Orient Beach, good central location to all of the French side and about a 30min drive to the Dutch side. The condo was furnished as pictured, and clean, some mild wear/rust from beach life and visitors. Double sinks in the bathroom and rain shower were very nice. Bed was comfortable, patio seating was perfect for our meals with a great view of Orient Beach. Any maintenance issues were mild and addressed by the owner after our stay. The condos were hit very hard by the hurricane; we were not fully prepared to witness the extent of the destruction, even as Floridians. The pool and tennis courts are not functional. The condos exterior has missing pieces of the roof, tiles in the stairwells, and surrounding units can be seen without doors/windows/ and balconies. Although none of this affected our stay, it was a bit of a shock walking up. I would recommend packing light as checked bagged might be difficult to transfers from the parking area to the unit and up the stairs.
Snacks on arrival were nice and Sofia was readily available to help us with parking. A parking spot was provided, it was a little tight to get in and out of with our rental but definitely needed as parking was very difficult to find.
I would recommend having a car for your stay as most of the restaurants within walking distance close early. Orient Village opens most of its restaurants around 6pm, I would not recommend walking on the road to get here, the quickest route is walking on the beach. Our favorite was Le P'tit Bistro. We did enjoy the Pizzeria near the lobby of the condo office and there were at least 2 small grocery stores within a 10min drive of the unit (one in Orient Village and one in Hope Estates). L'Express was a great spot for snacks on the way to the beach, the chocolate croissant was amazing!
Pinel island was the highlight of our trip. The Ferry terminal to Pinel is about a 10minute drive from the condo. We chose to kayak to Pinel instead of waiting for the ferry and really enjoyed our day trips.
Overall, this condo met all of our needs and gave us a relaxing/safe break from reality. We would recommend this unit and stay again in the future.
Beautiful and quiet
The unit was just as the pictures showed. The management is working on the repairs that resulted from hurricane Irma, which are mostly external. They will be starting on the pool soon and have begun to repair the securitiy system for the property. The beach is gorgeous and a short walk from the room. The island is ready for tourists to return so don’t hesitate to go! We have been going to St. Martin for the past 5 years and this was our favorite place to stay.
Great view from balcony showing a mile of white sandy beach and all the blues of the Caribbean
Condo is great, best stocked kitchen ever with everything functional. Grounds are beaten up from hurricane. Understood pool area and tennis courts where not operating. The overall resort is tired and does need general maintenance. Too many cats roaming and people with dogs do not pick up 😩�. Sophie was great and showed us the condo, provided us w some starter munchies and beverages.... nice touch
Overall it was good, enjoyed being removed from the crowds of tourists and the traffic of Philipsburg/Simpson’s Bay on a daily basis.
Walking down the beach there are 3 decent bars but stop serving food around 4 and drinks by 5-6. Back in off the beach is very nice square with mini-market of higher end products and higher eateries
Generally speaking remote but enjoyable....all depends on the night life you are looking for.
Great place easy location and good beach view.
The complex is a little beat up from the storm and little rough on being maintained.The island has made a great comeback and what has been rebuilt is better.The unit itself is fantastic and fully stocked. It’s a very very clean unit with plenty of storage space. It also comes with a reserved parking space. We would rent again. A real gem.
GREAT location and views
The apartment is well located and convenient . Well furnished but the kitchen needs a few items for cooking ! Need a dedicated parking space as parking is very difficult end of day! Owner very nice and attentif.
Will come back though!
Magnificent view of Orient Beach from this stylish and well equipped unit. We could not have felt more welcome or at home. The owner thoughtfully ensured everything required to make our stay effortless and enjoyable was at hand - from the thick cotton beach towels, local cell phone, and cold beer in the fridge, to the basic provisions in the kitchen, portable beach chairs and cooler on the balcony. It's a pleasant beach walk into Orient Bay Village for lunch or dinner. Grand Case is just a short drive away. And we were delighted to find warm baguette at the well stocked grocer located at the foot of the hill. The pictures do not do the studio justice. Our expectations were exceeded and we would recommend this unit to any one wanting to enjoy a luxurious space with direct access to everything Orient Beach has to offer.
