Recent Orient Bay reviews

  • Perfect Retreat

    "Fabulous St Martin rental. Just returned from 8 wonderful days. Location is perfect just a few minutes walk to beach and to shops and restaurants, but still very quiet and private. Nice to be able to have wine with a wonderful French meal and not have to worry about driving. Anna, the owner of the villa, greeted us on arrival and gave us a grand tour of Orient Bay. She is extremely helpful and very welcoming. The house is very comfortable with excellent AC, refreshing pool and everything we needed. We toured the entire island, but enjoyed Orient Bay best. Nicest beach with quiet places or full service restaurants. We kayaked out to Green Cay on several occasions for excellent snorkeling. Excellent windsurfing on Galion Bay (SXM Surf), but cash only and beware Westin time share scammers who flag down cars and give you scratch cards with winning numbers. To summarize, fantastic place to relax on St Martin. Can't recommend more highly and looking forward to repeat visit."

  • Beautiful, large villa, few issues

    "When we arrived at the villa, it was stunning even in the dark! Since we rented the entire villa for ourselves, it was huge! Pauline was amazing! Very on call whenever we needed her, and we did, I'll explain later. If you want seclusion with an amazing view, this house is for you! It made us not want to go anywhere because it had everything! However, there were some things that we had issues with that people should be aware of. But even with these issues, I feel that we would stay here again since we go to SXM 1-2 times a year. We haven't found one villa on the island that is 100%, but this comes pretty close! 1. Air conditioning in one bedroom didn't work. Since we rented the whole house, we expected everything to work. 2. The two front bathrooms had sewer issues. And it only happened when it rained. It smelled the whole house like a sewer! Pauline told us how to fix the problem. I feel that this should be addressed when arriving or in the book and not have to wait for an hour for her to respond with the solution. And it happened multiple times, so that was frustrating. 3. I feel the gardener didn't need to be by your particular bedroom so early in the morning. On vacation, you want to be able to sleep late, and not get woken up by 7:00. 4. The cleaning service was great, but took some of our beach towels and never replaced them. The same with the bath towels and washcloths. I feel that if you're staying there for two weeks, everything should be there at your disposal until you leave."

  • Relaxing and peaceful property

    "We were here March 2016. Group of 4 adults. 1st time not using an all inclusive resort. Large 2 bedroom + loft unit. Very spacious, clean, and unbelievably quiet. We couldn't believe how the only sounds we heard were the waves of the ocean. View from 2nd floor balcony was beautiful. Even though there is a parking lot in between the condo and the beach, you can't see it through the landscaping and it isn't used at night. The view from the bedrooms balconies were of the mountains and the surrounding village. All of us thought the beds were incredible! Clean. The unit had all we needed and the manager Julie answered all our questions quickly and effectively. We asked for a BBQ and she got one. The loft would only be good for children as it is open concept into the living room / kitchen area so sleeping in the a.m. would be difficult if that was a need. We had a cleaning lady come in once and she did a great job. We wish we had more towels in between the once visit. There is a washing machine but we didn't end up using it. Parking included. Building is very safe and is locked on all sides. We wish we had been given 4 keys instead of 2 as difficult when we were going back and forth to the beach at different times but not a huge deal. The pool is small and walled in without a view. You would never use it during the day as there is no wind and the area gets very hot. We used it at the end of the day for a cool off. The beach is beautiful (with the exception of some minor seaweed but we know that this is common throughout most if not all the Caribbean right now). It's in a relatively quiet area of the Orient Beach scene but a close walk if you need more action and about 15 minute walk to the nude beach (which is calmer as its in a bay). We weren't happy with the service at Waikiki Beach which provided the chairs/umbrellas as part of the condo deal. They NEVER came and asked us for service (drinks or food). They would only serve the customers of Waikiki and we weren't allowed to sit in the more comfortable chairs. They would take the umbrellas away at 3:30/4:00 if the cruise customers had left as they wanted to go home. The bathrooms at Waikiki were gross!!!! We saw staff using the chair sheds to have sex with tourists! Thank goodness we were a short walk to our condo. Night life is quiet. A short walk to the Village - pricey but good. They take US dollars at par at most places which was good for us instead of Euro. Highly recommend Princess Eden unit!"

  • Owner Helpful

    "Great quiet beach location - and a short walk from excitement. Owner was helpful to make everything smooth for us. Facilities were very acceptable and clean. As advice: this is not a resort-like vacation spot and it's expected you look after yourself. Rental car is helpful but if necessary you can find most of what you need 1/2 mile down the beach."
