We stayed at the Sea Emerald Condo this year and we were very happy with this rental.
We loved the beach side check in. We were familiar with the area, drove to the unit and the key was waiting for us! The unit was very clean and included individual air conditioners in both bedrooms and downstairs in the living room. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the glassware, cookware etc that we needed. The pictures of this condo are exactly what we got upon entering!! It was spotless. Lots of extra towels, beach towels for 4 and 2 chairs and an umbrella if you wish to not rent one at the beach.
The parking is off the main street so there is no traffic right by the condo, our evenings were quiet. We recommend a car to visit the rest of the island but you definitely would not need one if you were going to stay in the Orient Beach and Village area your entire trip, we could walk anywhere!
Sea Emerald is a short two minute walk to the beach, steps to the Orient Village restaurants during the evening and steps to a couple bakeries in the morning. There is a small grocery store that had almost anything we needed, and of course an email to Jeannie for all the groceries and drinks we wanted were waiting for us when we arrived was great!
We loved having a washer and dryer but we missed the iron and ironing board that was mentioned in the amenities. A drying rack for the towels and clothing you do not dry would have been nice to have.
All in all, we loved Sea Emerald and will stay there again when we visit St Martin. This place was perfect for us, a couple, would be great for 2 couples or a family of four. Totally recommend this unit!!
