First visit...and also the last!

  • 1 of 5

As soon as we walked in I knew we had made a mistake. This unit is listed as newly renovated, and I am sure that was true at one time, but EVERYTHING is tired and dirty and broken. Over half of the glassware was chipped/broken, there were 2 services for cutlery and the one set was completely destroyed, one kitchen cupboard is completely unusable as it is full of cockroach feces (have pictures as does Bruno), dishwasher cannot be used as there is a huge electrical problem with leaking water that throws the breakers resulting in virtually no power to kitchen. The bathroom was filthy, shower most especially, and the shower curtain was truly disgusting. We became aware of cockroaches on night 2 and notified Bruno immediately, his idea of addressing the problem was to buy us a can of Raid and refused our idea of having the unit visited by an exterminator. On night 4 we had a 3" cockroach IN OUR BED....needless to say we slept with ALL the lights on for the next 5 weeks we were there!!! On a personal note there is just way to much stuff in this unit. It is a studio apartment but has the capability to seat 14 for dinner! The pictures show quite a lot of closet space but there is only one that has the capability to hang your clothes and it is filled with the cleaning equipment for the unit (i.e. vacuum cleaner, mop, cooler, broom, dustpan, etc.) which does not leave much room for your clothes. The fake flowers are dirty and extremely old fashioned, the walls are dirty and in desperate need of repainting and the furniture is dated and dirty. Because the track for the sliding glass door has never been cleaned it makes it very difficult to open and close the door...it would be almost impossible for the elderly. Even though Bruno replied promptly to every concern we had it was not a pleasant stay for us and because we were here for 38 days the length of our vacation made it impossible to find alternate accommodations. One thing about Mount Vernon is that there are no cars allowed in the complex meaning that you must carry your luggage and all your groceries, every time you shop, to your unit, and the parking is not close. And the amount of dog poop on the sidewalks, yes I said sidewalks, is appalling!

Owner's Response: Oups! I think you hate everything, the sudio, Mont Vernon complex and why not SXM . Why are you coming? Twice per year, an exterminator treats the unit against cockroach, but no treatment is 100% successfull. Keep in mind that this unit is a ground floor not top floor; so, more small cockroach than at top floor. By the way, SXM is also a hot country so we have more insect than in Canada ! but we have not crocodiles as in Florida!!. Regarding, dogs outside, sorry I am not responsable about it and I cannot manage it. Same thing for Mont Vernon complex, there are no car inside and as we are a seafront, of course it is not easy to come with luggages. I know we have an electric issue with the kitchen but i twill be fixed soon. Thank you for your kindness Regards

Not 5 star accommodations

  • 2 of 5

After extensive research, and influenced by the 5 star reviews, we booked 4 weeks at this condo. Bruno, the manager, was unable to greet us but he sent his assistant, Sandy. We noticed the shower head was broken and emailed Bruno but it took him 6 days to repair it. After 3 weeks the air conditioner broke so we contacted Bruno again. It was Sunday so he couldn't send a repairman until Monday. The repairman was unable to fix the A/C so he installed a new one on Tuesday. After we complained about the inconvenience, Bruno provided us with another unit for Monday night. Although Bruno replied promptly to our texts, we never met him and his actions should have been quicker. Overall we enjoyed our vacation but we were disappointed with the accommodations. The following is our review:

Pros -

- excellent view of ocean & beautiful, long beach for walking

- 2 ceiling fans provided a nice breeze

- blackout curtains kept the unit dark in the mornings

- king size bed was reasonably comfortable

- nice large swimming pool with direct access to beach

Cons -

- shower leaks & bathroom needs a complete renovation

- TV picture has a blue streak going through it & needs to be replaced

- dishwasher wasn't working

- the unit needs to be painted & redecorated (new bedspread, pillows, larger bath towels)

- there was no kitchen sink plug, wash clothes or dish clothes

- the closet doors were out of their tracks (we fixed them ourselves)

- there are holes in the kitchen cupboards which enables bugs into the unit

- Mont Vernon complex is run down & it is situated on a hill making walking difficult

Owner's Response: Hello, We apologized about issues that you met during your stay but, as you know, nobody knows the end of it’s own life, same thing for electronic equipment such as air conditioner ! This device was brandnew and installed since 2 years and half . As, you discovered it, our studio is a true see front but the drawback is the sea salt which destroy all electronic devises rapidly. Unfortunately,the A/C brokes on Sunday and, of course, nobody comes on a day closed. So, the repairman comes the day after and find out the issue, electronic board done. To order this card, it is minimum 2 weeks of delay because Sint-Marteen is an island, do not forget it !! So, I order the repairman to change by a new A/C on Tuesday and asked Bruno, to move you to another studio at my charge, so what can do more ? On the other way, Mont Vernon complex is located on a hill making walking difficult ; you right, this residence is situated at the top of the hill, as a lot of residence in Sint-Marteen and if someone has difficulies to walk, of course, Sint-Marteen does not fit for him because SXM is build on hills and that you do not mentionned me. TV picture has a blue streak going through it ; that is new and you didn’t tell to Bruno, so I decided to change TV by a new one on next Saturday February 20. By the way, dishwasher wasn't working, again you didn’t mentionned to Bruno who doublechecks and it works. At least, remenber that Mont Vernon is a residence and if you want a 24H/24h services, I recommend you an hotel, palace or resort, but i will be not the same rate . We do the maximum for you, but I am afraid that it was not suffisant ; I think you got in troubles with I do not know what and try to move yours problems against me. This is bad because your review is not accurate, see all others reviews if you don't trust me! Regards

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We spent 8 days in this very nice rental. We chose it for location and beautiful ocean view. You could walk from the condo to Orient Beach and it was heavenly. The unit was very nice with everything we needed. Just a few minor repairs on a couple things could be done, but nothing substantial. Just an FYI for those choosing any unit in Mont Vernon, it does required a lot of walking as you go from the parking lot to any unit. There is no close parking. We found a great grocery store just a short drive away with everything we needed. We were pleasantly greeted by Bruno who was very helpful with explaining how everything worked as well as great directions on getting to this place from the airport. Driving anywhere on the island was easy once you grasp the narrow roads and local drivers. We would definitely book again because we were all about the ocean view location. We spent everyday on the beach!

Great value, great location

  • 5 of 5

We chose this location due to the proximity and view of Orient Beach. It's a 3 min walk from the condo to the beach. The condo has everything you need for a relaxing stay for two. The kitchen is well-supplied, and the washer is a nice convenience. The view is spectacular. Groceries are nearby at Simply Market, a 5-10 min drive. While the Mont Vernon onsite grocery store is pretty limited, the made-to-order pizza is excellent. Good food at almost every price is nearby at Grand Case (loved the Creole cooking at Villa Royale). We had a rental car delivered to Mont Vernon from AutoMax, and with our Garmin loaded with a map of St. Martin, it was easy to find our way around the island. Parking in the lot by the tennis courts can definitely be a hike, but we didn't mind. Hope we can return someday! We definitely recommend this condo to anyone looking for a week to relax in the sun.

Delightful Residence in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful residence with a perfect view at sunrise and of Orient Bay and St Barths in the distance. It is well maintained and well-equipped. It is important to remember it is a private condo, it is not in a full service resort. That being said, the location is ideal, the pool area is very clean and well-managed, and the beach access is just right. The kitchen is modern and clean and has everything you need for a vacation. The supermarket is close by, and the drive to good restaurants is brief. The nearest beach bar is about a 10 minute walk south along the beach. You should rent a car to stay here. This was our second time to Mont Vernon, and first time to this particular studio condo. We fully intend to return as soon as possible.

Home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

My wife, 6 year old daughter and myself stayed on St Maarten island from December 16th to Dec 30th. Our Mont Vernon Unit was just what we needed. We loved to wake up and open the patio doors to hear the sound of the surf while we had our morning coffee.Although the Orient Beach, where this unit is situated, was fully covered in seaweed from the recent hurricane we were able to drive to many great beaches in the surrounding area.Our favourite beach was Mullet bay on the Dutch side but also enjoyed many more including Maho, and Bay Rouge. Just a quick ride away was the best shopping and dining ( Grand Case) our daughter love the gelato shop there and my wife shopped in the La Boheme and found treasures.A large super market is also a short drive away( Simply) that seem to have all we needed at reasonable prices.There is a small pizza parlour, market and laundry on the property .All and all we enjoyed our stay so much we are already booking for next year.
