Recent Orient Bay reviews

  • Quiet and relaxing. Nick and Gloria are wonderful hosts.

    "My wife and I just returned from Mont Vernon on May 13th, and I'd return right now if someone offered. What a beautiful place to relax and unwind. This was our second trip to Saint Martin and our second stay with Nick and Gloria. Mont Vernon is quiet and away from most of the tourist attractions, which is great because you can get a feel for the island the way it really is. You will be on the French side during your stay, everyone speaks English, but you'll want to remember merci. The island is only 37 sq. miles so you can be in Phillipsburg, Marigot, or the airport in about 1/2 hour for dining, shopping, etc. Getting around the island is pretty easy once you get used to it. There is a main highway around the island with off shoots to various parts. It took this American a few days to get used to the roundabouts, but just follow along, it's easy. Dining is available for any kind of palate you have. The only downside to spending a week there is that you will have to leave and go home. Now, here is your plan: BOOK. THE. TRIP. When you arrive, rent a car. Go eat at Skip Jacks (or anywhere for that matter), head to The Grande Marche on Bush Road and get yourself some groceries (yes, they have PLENTY of food you'll recognize). Cruise around the island to Mont Vernon. Meet up with Gloria. Get checked in. Stow your food. Grab your swim suit. Follow the stone path to the pool. Kick your flip flops off. Go through the gate to the beach. Spread out your towel. Sit down. Take a DEEP breath. Relax. You're on island time now. Let the ocean breeze carry your troubles away. Thank You Nick and Gloria. Hope to see you soon."

  • 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."

  • Perfect house on good place

    "We have had a great stay at this house with our family (6 people). Nice house with good swimming pool. All the things what we expected were there. Before our stay we had good contact with the owner and when we arived there was a nice lady Anne to explain all the things in and arround the house A real warm welkom. During our stay we had no complaints. Down in the park there are shops/restaurants and of course the nice beach. The house had together with 2 others houses a special entrance (special gate), no big problem for our big rented car. During our stay we discover the island included a one day trip to Saba. We went to the different beaches/shopping centres/horse riding in the sea/hiking."

  • Two couples getaway

    "We shared this beautiful condo with another couple and had lots of room. Location of this condo is perfect - close to Grand Case, Marigot et. Even with one toilet the layout worked well. Toilet and sink in one room and shower, two sinks & clothes washer in another room. Martine was very helpful. More than once she emailed asking of we needed anything and to be sure to contact her if we had any questions. The only issue we had was no washroom at the pool. Our plane was 1 1/2 hours late so we didn't arrive at Mount Vernon until late in the evening and was very pleased to see Martine standing there waiting for us. Apparently not all owners are there when you arrive. She went as far as helping us carry our bags up to the condo. Martine and Christian are a lovely couple. We will definitely return to this condo."
