About Daphnée and Gilles KELAIDITES
We are a family of 5. We live near Paris in France and work in the events business. We definitely love Saint-Martin French side and especially the Orient Bay area. We spend our summer time in Saint-Martin either in our Princess Anouk beachfront appartement or in our Villa Côté Sud which overlooks Orient Bay and its surrounding islands. We are happy to spend time in both accomodations in order to continously improve our 2 properties and make our returning guests even happier by the year.
Daphnée and Gilles KELAIDITES purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Daphnée and Gilles KELAIDITES chose Orient Bay
We have first bought another property located in Park View residence nearby with an amazing 180° view and a great privacy. And we are happy to have bought this other property to be closest to the beach and to avoid taking our car to drive our teenager back and forth to Orient Bay beach in the daytime or in the night time.
What makes this Apartment unique
No need of a car during your Saint-Martin vacation. The Orient Bay beach and its main beach restaurants are only 100 feet away from the Prince Anouk Deluxe Suite. The ocean view is stunning and there are no buildings between the Suite and the Beach. The natural ocean breeze makes your stay in the apartment even more relaxing, even from May to November when it is very warm. At the same time, the breeze naturally repels surrounding mosquitoes. Very few beachfront accomodations in Orient Bay beach area have this key benefit.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
My family had a wonderful time staying here. The condo has an amazing view of one of the prettiest beaches on the island. The condo was very clean, the kitchen was well equipped, and the beds where comfortable. My son loved the pool (the pool was clean and taken care of). The condo is walking distance to some fantastic restaurants and a small grocery store. It is also about a 10 minute drive to some of the other beaches and Bistrot Caraibes (fantastic seafood). The owner was fantastic to communicate with. The island is still rebuilding but don’t let that stop anyone from visiting!!! The beaches, food, and people are fantastic!
Great location, and pictures do not tell half the story!
Originally we were scheduled to stay in September 2017, but Hurricane Irma happened, altering plans and disrupting island life. Gilles and Daphnée were extremely patient and kind throughout the disruption, allowing us to postpone our stay until the island had recovered more.
Almost 1.5 years later, and the wait was worth it!
Walking in the door you immediately see a wall length sliding glass doors that open fully to the ocean view. Nothing obstructs the view and you are close enough to hear the waves crash.
The beds are comfortable, and the kitchen is fully stocked so you can cook. Coffee and espresso makers are available.
The island is still in recovery mode, so you will want to buy bottle water while you are there. (3.5 Euro for a 6pack of 1.5 liter - we used around 3 cases while there.) Bring adapters for electronics that can handle 220 Volts (Apple products do), and a converter for electric tooth brush or camera chargers. Adapters are cheap, less than a $1; converters decent around $15.
There is a gate that takes you directly out to KKO beach, where you can get an umbrella, food and drinks. It is less than a 5 minute walk.
Orient Bay center is an 8 minute walk, and now has 6 restaurants open, all have high quality food. Casino is the grocery store that practically has everything you need for food and drinks. They all take VISA and USD.
We loved the location, and already plan on returning. This was our 5th trip to SXM, and now we will always stay at the Princess Anouk.
Thank you Gilles, Daphnée and Alex for sharing your wonderful home!
Lovely stay in Oriental Bay
Beautiful view on the beach.
Nice, clean condo with pool and private parking.
Right next to Kko Beach bar, we were most of the time over there, delicious food, drinks and free fast WiFi.
5 min walk to the restaurant and small market from the condo.
Le Piment Restaurant was very nice with delicious food.
Aleksander answered any my questions with minutes
We enjoy our stay, we will be back again.
We enjoyed Princess Anouk very much. It was equipped nicely, very clean, and has a great location. We had a hand held shower head break and they had it fixed within an hour. A/C in every room assured comfort although we hardly needed it because of the wind of orient beach.
We enjoyed our stay at Princess Anouk. Plenty of room well equipped kitchen. A beautiful view. Flo was attentive and helpful. We will definitely stay again.
Perfect location and setting
Had a wonderful stay in this unit. Couldn't ask for a better location with it's proximity to the beach and restaurants/bars. The unit is well maintained and clean. Greg, the concierge welcomed us to the unit and prepurchased items for us we had requested. Overall I'd recommend this unit and the group in charge to anyone questioning stating there.
