The Best in Orient Bay
This is our go-to location in Orient Beach! Everything is brand new and updated in the apartment. It is beautiful and clean! James and Kateryna are the best and wonderful hosts. It is a 1 minute walk from the beach and with the restaurants and shops in Orient village, you don't need to leave! We will return!
We thoroughly enjoyed our week...the apartment was practically on the beach...
no driving back and forth to the beach. The unit was very clean and if there was anything that we needed James came to the rescue!!! The only issue for my husband and I were having to maneuver the stairs to the loft where the bed is and having to go up and down them in the middle of the night to the bathroom...we aren’t youngsters so it was a bit of a challenge. That being said we highly recommend a stay there....James and Katyrena were great!!! Restaurants and grocery stores all within walking distance!!
Place was great. Very comfortable and convenient to beach, restaurants and fun.
Great place. Renovations really done well.
Thank you very much Mike ! See you soon
Very Nice and Great People to Work With
We can't say how convenient the property is to Orient Beach. It was perfect. The interior of the property is like new. The bed was comfortable and the furnishings were complete. The electricity on the French side was a bit off and on for one of the 7 days we were there. Definitely not the fault of James and Kateryna.
James and Kateryna were great! Delta Airlines lost our luggage so the second day we were there, we only had long sleeve shirts and pants... way too hot for St. Martin. We waited around, since being on the beach wasn't really an option. We were having troubles getting in touch with Delta to find a time that we could expect the luggage. James to the rescue! James was kind enough to call Delta and arranged to meet the Delta delivery person and even put our bags in the rental. That was awesome!! We were at dinner when our luggage finally came. When we got back to the rental, voila, our luggage was waiting for us!
The pool wasn't ready, but they made it right.
You might want to get directions on using the washer and TV. We struggled with that a bit. I am sure it worked great, but we chalked it up to operator error.
Overall, it was very wonderful and could not have asked for more. Thanks James and Kateryna!
Thank you so much Mike!!! See you soon
Great apartment, fantastic location and great owner
We have stayed in several apartments and studios on Orient Beach over the years, but this experience was our best ever. The location, the view of Orient Beach and most impressively, the response from the owners to every need we had, was outstanding.
James was a pleasure to deal with in every matter and even though our needs were minimal, his responsiveness was impressive. Everything in the apartment was new and the renovations were outstanding-making for a fantastic vacation. We would recommend this apartment for a family vacation (up to 4), "girls weekend" or a romantic getaway. This apartment would be ideal for any of the above.
The location, sitting above the restaurants and shops and directly behind Bikini Beach, is ideal for proximity to a grocery store (Petit Casino), Orient Beach bars, beach rentals and restaurants, and the great French restaurants in Orient Village. Everything is within easy walking distance, just a couple of minutes away.
We can't wait to come back to Orient Beach to stay at this apartment again. You will enjoy every minute of your stay here!
One note--the residence is still recovering from Hurricane Irma so be aware there is construction and some remnants from the storm that are being addressed right now. Other than that, this is the perfect place to be for your vacation on Orient Beach.
Thank you so much Jim, we had a lot of joy to receive you and to discuss with you. We really hope to see you soon.
Will be lovely once the construction if finished.
It's hard to write this review. James and Katya were always there to assist and I can't fault them in that respect. Much of this review is hinged on the fact that the island has gone through horrific damage from Irma and is still trying to get back on its feet...
The location is great because it is right by the beach. There is a lovely bakery downstairs (you have to try the croissants), there is a little grocery store and lots of super restaurants within walking distance. We loved going to Bikini Beach and renting the lovely padded beach chairs for the day for $30. Make sure to get a discount if you come later in the afternoon, you have to ask for it they won't offer.
However, I will warn you that the unit sits on top of a restaurant/bar and on Thursday nights they have a live band that plays late into the night. It is very loud. You won't get any sleep. We arrived on a Thursday and we were exhausted from the trip. After the first night we seriously considered moving locations the following and would have had we found a suitable option.
The good: the condo is clean, and James and Katya supply you with everything that you need during your stay. Once construction is finished it will be a nice place to stay. When an issue arises James quickly makes things right. One suggestion that I would make would be to add a dark out curtain for privacy.
The bad: The breakers blow, the water pressure is low, and the internet goes down frequently and if it is working it is slow. Also, we were not able to get the TV working.
The unit itself was clean, and everything was new because we were the first people to stay there after the restoration. We did get fair warning that the construction was ongoing and received a 30% discount, and that was appreciated. However, we received no warning that the pool wasn't filled, and that we were not getting the unit that we signed up for. We were supposed to get a two level unit, but it wasn't ready at our time of arrival and so we stayed in a much smaller unit. We were not warned before hand. We did see the two level unit and it will be a very nice unit when it is ready.
If you like going out on the town and partying late into the night, this is the unit for you. If you are older and prefer some peace and quiet at night then I suggest that you find a better location. All in all, we enjoyed our stay but would have done better in a finished hotel.
Hello Alena and thank you for your comment, just a few precisions, we informed you before your arrival that the work of the residence was not completed and we have given you the choice between a rental housing with 3 bedrooms in a residence whose work was completely finished or a discount of 30% on the price of the low season for a housing whose price is of 1200 € for which you finally pay half.
It is true that on Thursday the Yellow Sub or salsa parties end a little late, around 22 hours.
The work of the residence will be completed on April 15 and we informed all our guests of the situation so far and practice a tariff offer that seems consistent.
