About The Owner

Your hosts Tony, Brent, Angie and Troy are very good friends who have traveled the world in search of our piece of paradise. We are thrilled to share our find with you

Why The Owner chose Mont Vernon

We have been traveling the world for the last 20 years in search of the top ten beaches in the world. Once we found Orient Beach we have concluded this beach is the best of the best with the white sand turquoise 85 degree water along with temperate weather ranging from 75 to 85 degrees all year round. We are convinced this beach offers everything and more for the beach people of the world.

What makes this studio unique

Staying with us will afford you the ability to receive discounts at several stores in Phillipsburg as well as drink and beach discounts .

Guestbook comments from the owner

These comments are in response to our one and only negative review and we are saddend and disappointed. We (Tony and Brent) have traveled the world for 20 years in search of our little piece of paradise and found this condo on beautiful Orient Beach. This condo is not just a rental property, it is our second home that we proudly choose to share with our guests. Our condo is professionally decorated, maintained, and appointed accordinglly with many amenites that a guest would not find in a jsut a rental property The 3 to 5 star hotel experience these guests were expecting or preferred was never promised and is not the experience of renting a personal condo and is not offered on Vacation Rental By Owner (VRBO) site.



We spent hours developing a personal Arrival Letter in order to assist our new and returning guests to enjoy a knowledgeable, affordable and wonderful experience. The letter is forwarded to our guests at booking time, usually many months prior to their arrval, which gives everyone time to ask questions.The letter addresses rental cars, taxi's, grocery shopping, affordable and 5 starr restaurants, condo complex amenities, beach towels, shopping recommendations and affordable ways to reach the shopping areas via the cruise ship taxi drivers located on the beach, a variety of highlights of what the island has to offer in an effort to please every guest's personal taste.



As to the specifics: The custom draperies were installed for decorating purposes only because our goal was to wake up to the sun rise and the sound of the ocean as part of our tropical experience. Like it or not, the hurricane shutters are an insurance requirement. Many people have commented on how wonderful our rain shower is to enjoy but if you stay in the shower too long you will run out of hot water. LOL



This reservation was during the Holiday season, one of the most sought out weeks of the year and was taken over six months prior to this guests arrival. If there was a doubt about the island destination, condo experience or any other reason there was plenty of time to cancel the reservation for a 5 star hotel expereince. It is acknowledged that we were easy to do business with and readily avaiable by email or phone to answer any questions. When the experience was not a 5 star hotel which the guest preferred they chose to leave and demanded return of their rental payment and threatened to write a very negative review if we did not return their money. You be the judge...

Perfect Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a beautiful week on Orient Bay at Tony and Brent's Mount Vernon condo. It was the perfect getaway, exactly as described in the listing. The view, the proximity to the beach, the quality of the beach itself, the friendliness of the owners, the property manager, and the locals make this condo rental an incredible value. We will be back!

Nice condo with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this place several months ago, over Labor Day. Someone asked me for a recommendation today, and I told them about this; when I followed the link from my emails I saw the previous review and thought I would respond, since I disagree so much with it.

We purposely decided we wanted to stay at Mt. Vernon to try it out, and after browsing through the listings, settled on this one--it seemed pretty, nice view, and nice location in the complex. All of that turned out to be true.

We arrived mid-day on a ferry from Anguilla, so didn't have a set arrival time. We were able to call the property manager, who met us within 10 minutes and gave us a tour of the property and the condo. She showed us how everything works in the apartment and went on her way. The apartment is nicely decorated, comfortable and easy to adjust to. The balcony is lovely, with an incredible view of the length of Orient Bay.

Prior to arrival (upon our reservation), we received a detailed document with instructions for arrival/departure and other practical information. We already knew from our own research that a car would be quite desirable at Mt. Vernon, and that Mt. Vernon is at the end of Orient Beach (the opposite end of the "crescent" of the bay from Club Orient).

We were thrilled with the apartment; we spent each day on the beach at various places on Orient Beach, with one day at Pinel Island. Each night we went out to dinner either in Grand Case or Orient Village--both a five minute drive away. We picked up groceries we needed from the nice French grocery store that is a two-three minute drive away, right at the roundabout between Grand Case and Orient Bay.

We slept well on a comfortable bed; if one got up early they could either go to the balcony or hang out in the comfy living area. We will definitely stay again, and highly recommend the apartment.

A HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE

  • 1 of 5
We decided to stay in this suite because of the great pictures and amazing reviews. Let me say that we are world travelers and have stayed in all sorts of hotels, ranging from 3star to five star hotels. This is the first hotel that we have ever checked out early.

Pros:
The view is amazing
Tony and Brent made for an easy booking experience and answered all our questions
The beach is close

Cons:
No drapes in the room, so it was very bright, and therefore, we could not sleep in. There are hurricane shutters but because it is extremely windy the shutters bang loudly throughout the night.

There is limited hot water. Not a problem, if there is only one person. If there is two, the second person won't have a hot shower.

It was too isolated for us. There are some restaurants that are about a 15 minute walk away. This won't be a problem if you rent a car. Taxis are extremely expensive.

No beach towels are provided and there are limited amenities (eg toilet paper). Again, this is not a hotel, so you should expect this. However the "grocery store" on site does not offer much.

Our last night, we found a large cockroach in the bathroom.

Beautiful Condo, Prime Location, Ideal Vacation

  • 5 of 5
First let me say, the owners and condo are FANTASTIC. We did not want a hotel experience, rather we wanted to feel like we lived on the island and that's how it felt! The booking process was smooth, they provided a lot of great info on the island and things to see and do. This was the first step to an enjoyable, worry-free vacation. The condo is in a prime location--the direct ocean views, breezes and sound of the waves were just what we needed. Our flight was delayed and the property manager was patient with us when we got lost driving and ended up about an hour later than we intended. The condo is clean, well appointed, very tastefully decorated. The description is completely accurate and the photos actually pale in comparison to the real deal. I would say this building is the best bet when considering location, views and access. We spent much of our time on the balcony when not on the beach... cooking meals and enjoying sunrise and moonrise. Condo had everything one would need to cook great meals--just stop by the market and grab your groceries. The bathroom was great, complete with Washer and relaxing rainfall shower head and attachment. It was perfect to be on a beach where you can find your own private space (near the condo) or rent a lounge chair and umbrella at one of the beach clubs (further down) and be able to take a dip in the pool on the property, right next to the ocean. There are several shops and some GREAT restaurants in the village in Orient Bay. Prices were high, but not outrageous. We highly recommend Le Piment. While it advertises more like pizza/pasta, wait for the special evening menu. From Foie Gras to Duck Confit to the most delicious steaks and seafood. Best meal of the vacation. Access to Ilet Pinel (a fun island day excursion) is just a short drive from the condo to grab a ferry (5 mins to the island) or kayak (20 mins). We chose to kayak over. Very easy and simple, and quite beautiful protected waters. The rest of the island is very easy to get to. We prefer the French side--it is much more calm/less crazy than the Dutch side. I heard a few folks in the restaurants talk about how they 'wish they had stayed somewhere in Orient Bay' after coming by to eat. The pizza place on property had some of the best and most unique pizzas we've tasted so try it! Only negative: mosquitos at night out on the property and beach. I was covered in the itchiest bites I've even gotten--so bring or buy bug spray! Our first VRBO and we will be back!

Gorgeous views!!

  • 4 of 5
We rented this studio condo which is located in the Aruba building. The owners depicted the condo very well and we were very happy with the cleanliness and location of their unit. The unit had been recently upgraded and we really enjoyed having a full kitchen, large patio, modern bathroom and washing machine.

We did had a few problems finding the complex and it would have been helpful if we had gotten better directions that included the street name the complex is located on. I would also recommend renting a cell phone while you are there as we had trouble contacting the property manager via email when the water went out one day without notice and we could not flush our toilet or shower. We were a little annoyed when she didn't check on the unit until a couple of days later and on the last day of our vacation waited 45 mins for her to show up to inspect the unit before we had to leave even though we had made previous arrangements to meet her.
I would also recommend bringing an extra set of bath towels because the washing machine is slow and you have to air dry them.

Besides some of the minor issues the unit is in a great location, is very quiet and the views of Orient Beach are just spectacular! The unit is very close to a walkway that leads to the pool and beach and it directly over looks the ocean and pool. The pool is in need of some repairs but there are some nice lounges to use for sunbathing. In addition, most of the grounds of this complex are a little run down and the pathways / stairs are little rough to maneuver. If you are not in the best shape this may be a concern. The lack of parking spots available was also a small issue but most days we were able to find spots close to the main building. If you come back later in the evening you will have to park beside the tennis courts which is much farther away. There are not a lot of amenities but they do have a pizza parlor and small grocery store on the property. If you plan to eat in then you will need to rent a car or use a taxi to get groceries etc.. There are two new grocery stores within a 5 mins drive. If you are a foodie visit Grand Case which is well known for it restaurants.

Overall, we really enjoyed the amazing views of Orient beach, the pool area, the serene location and the luxury of making meals at home.
We will definitely be back again soon!!

ideal 3 weeks of relaxation

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our longest vacation ever - 3 weeks at Tony & Brent's ocean front bachelorette suite, which was as pictured. The view was the best we ever had for any of our vacations, enjoying our breakfast and evening cocktails taking in the scenary.
The king bed was very comfortable, & the rain shower option was ideal after a hot day on the beach.
We appreciate your hospitality & the suggestions taken for future visitors.
I highly recommend this option in your travel plans to St Marten.
