About the property

Apartment, Studio (Sleeps 4)

Our studio is located on Orient Beach (regularly voted the best beach in the Caribbean) on the French half of St Maarten, St. Martin, Caribbean. The highly sought-after, second floor apartment is locate in the renown former Mont Vernon Hotel. The studio faces Orient Bay with immediate, less than 1 minute, access to the white sand beach with turquoise 85 degree water all year round. The spacious balcony with panoramic frontal view of the sea allows guests to sit down, relax, and savor a meal.

All furniture is brand new (super comfortable queen size bed, fold out couch with spring mattress, leather armchair, table with chairs, ample closet etc.).

WE FINISHED A TOTAL INTERIOR RENOVATION IN FEBRUARY 2013. Designer quality kitchen cabinets & top-of-the-line appliances, a bathroom with a washer/dryer and luxurious household items like Egyptian linens, towels, high end tableware and silverware are ready for your use. Contemporary style with sleek design and clear cut forms provide background to the ravishing view.

Our studio has reliable wireless fast internet and flat screen TV with 18 American and French channels. Sheets and towels are ready for your use. Guests may order extra cleaning during their stay. The deposit fee is $300. Unit is non-smoking.

The Mont Vernon area is a gated community with 24h security, manicured tropical landscaping, on-site tennis courts and a tiny grocery store with fresh baguettes and tasty pizzeria. It is only a mile to GRAND CASE which is the French gourmet capital of the Caribbean ('la capitale gastronomique des Antilles')!

From our studio you would admire the absolutely fabulous unforgettable views of Orient Beach, neighboring islands St Barts, Green Cay & Tintamarre!

Owners speak English and French.

About Joanna Ozga

We are architects with a practice based in Chicago. First of all, we were attracted to Saint Martin because of the unique situation and our love of the water sports like windsurfing, boats and, more recently, kite-surfing. We return to the island because of the fantastic French cuisine, breathtaking views and the friendships we have formed with local residents. We have completely rehabbed d the studio of Mount Vernon in 2013. We speak French and English.

Why Joanna Ozga chose Saint Martin

Orient Bay is the best beach you could find in Caribbean with soft white sand and turquoise 85-degree water and air temperate weather ranging from 75 to 85 degrees, all year round. The Mount Vernon residences, located on the north end of Orient Beach, are calm and the three story buildings are designed on a human scale. Orient beach offers access to all possible water sports, a private pool and lounge deck, and the numerous restaurants that let guests taste exquisite French cuisine with a Creole twist.

What makes this apartment unique

Our beachfront apartment building, Antigua is located directly on the shore, so guests enjoy an uninterrupted ocean view. The luxurious property features a mix of short-term and permanent residents, so guests experience daily life in the Caribbean, and discover the Island on their own terms. The second floor (American 3rd floor) is optimal for getting a light, fresh breeze from the ocean while staying comfortable day and night without the need for air conditioning (AC is, of course, provided, should guests prefer it). A new sliding glass door that hides behind a sidewall pocket gives a unified feel to the space and lets guests enjoy total freedom between the indoor living space and the outdoor balcony. New, electronically controlled exterior rolling shutters allow guests to control lighting conditions at will.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

The studio apartment is exactly like the pictures. The design is well thought out and executed. The view is breathtaking every morning when you wake up and the sound of the waves is the best sound to go to sleep with! The location is perfect, the pool is well-maintained, the beach is the best in St. Martin and Joanna is delightful to work with. We had a wonderful stay in this idyllic setting.

Loved everything about it. The only complaint was towels and pillows aren't great, but that's nothing! Orient beach is a blast and SO close! You should definitely stay here!

A wonderful trip!

  • 4 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better week in St. Martin! The condo was very nice and looked exactly like the photos. We called Linda from the car rental company and she was patient and waited for us to arrive. The condo is on the quiet end of Orient Beach but in walking distance to the restaurants and hotels near by. We hope to be back again next year!

Very good to excellent

  • 4 of 5

Road leading up to it is greatly overdue for repair and could cause us to look elsewhere. Taxis didn't want to come and get us!

Room itself was very good to excellent. Owner needs to be aware of poor seal on glass doors that results in constant wind noise. Maybe a little more time spent showing us the room would have helped. We had a hard time finding the tv remote and ac adjustment remote. I'd give 4.5 stars. My short wish list would have on it, beach chairs we could take to where we want them instead of always needing to go to the busy bar/restaurant areas along the beach. Pizza on site was convenient and very good and saved us from walking greater distances when we wanted easy. We didn't explore the island but there really wasn't a need to, this place's location had all we wanted.

Beautiful Condo with Fantastic View

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 2 week stay at Joanna's condo and found with the pool area and the Orient beach right outside the gate that we only needed to leave to find fantastic places for dinner. Linda was waiting to check us in when we arrived and when we checked out and we really appreciated that as we saw people waiting out front to get to their condos. Great job Linda and Great Condo Joanna.
