Guestbook comments from the owner

We had watched the deterioration of Mont Vernon for many years, but after 5 years of not being in St Martin we are happy that Mont Vernon has been revitalized. Your unit was a breath of fresh air as A. opened the door and our eyes wandered thru the beautifully decorated unit and then all the way outside to the beautiful flowers and the ocean waves crashing in on Palm Beach. All the details of beauty truly make it feel like home.

It is a well appointed unit as it had everything (except a colander which we purchased for you at the Forum in Marigot - I wish I could find one like this in the states.)



I must tell you that A. is a wonderful contact person for you. She not only has the guest at heart, but is also one who has your interest and unit at heart. The unit was clean and orderly. She walked us through and explained things we should know. We felt confident knowing we had a person we could talk to if needed.



I was quite impressed with your Teflon pans. I always travel with my own Teflon skillet, because I am careful to use only utensils that can be used on Teflon; but yours were in good shape. When they start to peel I stay away from Teflon, therefore it's nice that you also have stainless.



The fabric on the couch, chair and curtains is beautiful. I mentioned to A. that they have a plastic rod that is attached to the side of the curtain to be pulled, thereby preventing you from touching the fabric when you pull the curtain.



I also liked the fact that there was a wooden deck that you stepped on and up when going out the sliding glass door



By the way, the bed was very comfortable!!!.



I enjoyed seeing so many families living here, they give a place life.



Thanks again for renting us your unit.

Excellent affordable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We searched VRBO extensively for an affordable flat to base our stay on Sint Maarten/St. Martin. After comparing offers we chose Vitaliy's home in Hotel Mont Vernon in Orient Bay because of the amenities, location, and price. We were not disappointed. The residence has everything required for an enjoyable stay. The photos on the rental page are an accurate representation of the apartment, grounds, and nearby Orient Beach.

It was nice to have the option of eating out or preparing our own meals and dining in. The clothes and dish washer added even further to the value of our stay. Linda (the housekeeper) welcomed us at the lobby promptly and carefully walked us around the property and explained the room thoroughly.

There is a small store and pizzeria on the premises ran by a gentleman named Nicolas. The 4 Fromages pizza is to die for. He also recommended a French restaurant in Grand Case called Le Effet Mer. It is right on the water, and the atmosphere and cuisine are incomparable. Also while in Grand Case do not miss the "Talk of the Town" lolo barbecue cafe. We also found ourselves visiting the numerous french bakeries on the island for quiche, croissants, and coffee. Unreal!

You can walk to the beach, but the tide and wind right off the property are not optimal for swimming. If you stroll to the south the swimming becomes better. If staying by the residence we found the pool refreshing and relaxing. We found numerous quality beaches around the island however, and most have two chairs and an umbrella for $15.00 for the whole day. Le Galion (just down the road) has calm shallow water which is perfect for paddle boarding and kayaking. The cafe owner's dogs will even ride along if you wish! If you want a quieter beach, Baie Rouge (west of Marigot) also rents chairs, and the water is more challenging (which means no kids). They also have chairs/umbrellas, and Chez Raymond's menu is extensive and reasonable. Karakter Beach Bar in Simpson Bay is a great spot to have a late lunch after a day of plane spotting on Maho Beach. It is right along the south side of the runway, and you can watch the jets take off from there.

I read and considered all the reviews on this rental. I believe the ones that are negative are a result of unrealistic expectations. This is a residential complex, not an all inclusive resort. If you want a comfortable, convenient, affordable place to stay while in St. Martin you will not be disappointed!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is quiet and comfortable. An easy walk down Orient Beach to many bars and restaurants. The owner kept in contact and made a local phone available which was great for calling taxis and making reservations. The condo complex has a small convenience store/bar/pizza place on property. Good sized pool and deck area was enjoyable. Great food and reasonably priced drinks at many of the beach bars. Thanks for the great vacation.

A dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property was even more lovely than pictured. We were able to get food from the grocery store and cook/eat most meals in the condo. You do need a car, but it's very easy to get anywhere on the island. We felt very safe in Mont Vernon. The wifi was sufficient, but my husband was not able to do work he'd planned to do, so keep that in mind. The pizza restaurant on site was delicious. We also loved Orient Beach SO MUCH! We made a point to venture out to a fair number of other beaches, but Orient was by far the most beautiful. It gets more crowded further down, but near the Residence there is plenty of area to spread out. It's a safe, 15-20 minute walk down the beach to get to restaurants/bars. I will say that there was pretty much no nightlife after about 9:30, so you may have to go across the island to Simpson Bay if that's what you're looking for. This was our first time on the island, and we will definitely be back! We would 100% stay here again and have recommended it to all of our family/friends. We are so thankful to have found such a wonderful anniversary spot!

Piece of Paradise on the Hillside

  • 4 of 5

Hillside is right. Hillside means stronger legs for someone who needs exercise. Hillside means walk to the swimming pool and back up again. Hillside means better view, The Paradise is the view of the beach, the sound of the ocean in the distance, the Palm trees, beautiful Flowers, plants and butterflies. Friendly and helpful staff, clean and maintained.

Vitality and his wife have made a very welcoming and comfortable place for their guests to stay. Cooking was simple and fun for us. We loved the privacy of his deck and our dining experience.

Providing beach towels a plus. We didn't use the beach lounges and umbrella as our business was the priority.

We appreciated having WiFi for our laptops and i phones surge protector an important feature as well as the lovely decor and above all the comfy beds.

We had planned a longer stay than most and overpacked which became a problem to get to the parking lot located on a hill.

Suggestions for guest arrival would be an airport pickup. Recommend Julia's Taxi Service.

If there were any changes possible, it would be the roads to get to the place.

Any maintenance issues were taken care of promptly.

Exactly as described

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in your condo. Your property was exactly as described in your listing. It was very convenient to have a washing machine, we found that very helpful and an added bonus. We really enjoyed the location, it is a quick walk down the beach to many activities/beach restaurants. Mont Vernon is also convenient to Grand Case, which has many excellent dining options, we particularly enjoyed our dinners at the bbq Lolo's and at Le Soleil. Thank you for your prompt responses to any and all questions we had, that is much appreciated. If we return to St. Martin we will definitely keep you in mind.
