Saint Martin is one of my favorite vacation spots. For the last ten years, I have spent my vacations on Saint Martin and the island still amazes me.
Alex Tisi purchased this studio in 2012
When I had an opportunity to purchase this fantastic condo I could not resist such an amazing view. This condo now has a new air conditioner, cooktop, a new bed, new furniture, and many new furnishings with an Indonesian flair.
Allow me to offer our impressions from our stay at Mount Vernon, St. Martin. As our flight was delayed, imagine that, we arrived after 11PM. I told Property Manager Allen not to wait for us, rather place a key in the lock box. Regardless, Allen was present as we arrived from the 20 min. trip from the airport. The owner of the car rental firm, which Allen recommended, was waiting for us at this late hour and offered us our ride to Mt. Vernon. Allen escorted us to our room which was clean, modern and equipped with some amenities in the refrigerator, which came in handy at this late hour having spent the better part of the day in the air. This concern for our comfort was a reflection of all Allen provided for us. Being sensitive of the hour, Allen came back the next morning to explain everything for us. He even had maps made of the resort showing walk ways to the pool, beach, any and all phone numbers we may have needed, etc…all of which we found very useful. He even had a cell phone for us to use while on the island.
I must say, the picture from the porch on HomeAway PALES to the actual view! Actually, the view is of the entire Orient Beach, from one end to the other. This is where we ate all our dinners by candlelight and spent countless hours relaxing and watching all the action on the beach, relaxing in the breeze.
The washer offered us an opportunity to wash clothes and, in hindsight, we didn’t need to take as many clothes as we did. The suite provided a stand on which to hang wet clothes to dry on the porch. Internet was available and the flat screen offered HBO, CNN, ESPN and STARS. The pool is very large and cleaned each morning. Security is present throughout the property.
It’s about 320 steps up from the beach, so that walk, in conjunction with beach walking, allowed us exercise to counter drinks on the beach.
Orient Beach is awesome. We travel the Caribbean for the beaches and were very pleased with the constant breeze, white sand, turquoise water and great waves. There is not a pebble or shell on the entire beach! We rented a car for the two weeks and actually may have only needed it 8-9 days for exploring and groceries.
Having been in customer service all my life, I am extremely critical and have an eye for detail. It’s a pleasure to say that Allen and the property exceeded all expectations! Allen made us feel at home and was a call away from any questions or inquiries.
Amazing view from the studio - and well equipped with all needed -
Owner and host so helpful ...
Alex was so nice and so available .. really a pleasure ...
countertop in the bathroom is a bit high .. for tall people i guess :(..
but other than that nothing negative to say.
I will keep it in my book of good spots to go !
Cheers ! and Thanks again !
My husband and I have had the good fortune to have visited Mont Vernon, Orient Bay, Property ID 3008994 three times! Each time the experience is the same...absolutely wonderful! The view depicted in the advertisement is just how it really looks...peaceful beauty! The condo is great, clean, quiet and the only place we will return to when we are able to travel back to St. Martens. Adrina was there upon our arrival; she does a marvelous job on keeping the condo looking great! Alex emailed us details about our arrival and kept us up to date on our trip. We again rented our car from Marcus and he was right there when our flight arrived. It was great to be driven to our condo so we could appreciate the scenery and catch up on what had been happening since our last vacation to this beautiful island. The beaches continue to be stunning with choices to either partake of activities, walk along and enjoy the sand, water and beautiful views, or stop for some refreshments at the friendly beach bars and restaurants! (The food is delicious especially at Palm Beach...I felt like we were transported to France as the cuisine was excellent and the prices were more than reasonable!)The grounds of the condo are very well kept and the pool is perfect to cool off in, swim laps or just lounge around! Ah, yes, truly Paradise that I hope you will allow yourself to experience!
Our first time in St Martin and we really enjoyed the location. The owner helped with a car and was very responsive to our needs. We highly recommend staying here.
I gave this condo one star because of the incredible balcony view of Orient Bay and the beautiful swimming pool. My wife and I stayed here 3 weeks in September and on the first day the water supply failed and we were without sanitary facilities for the better part of four days. I called the owner ASAP and he arranged for bottled water to be delivered after day 2. Meanwhile we were struggling with sanitation and our own bottled water. This water supply failure was not due to a pipe rupture, but scheduled as part of a water system update. The owner should have been aware of this situation and advised us and we would have delayed our arrival. The next problem was failure of the AC for 2 days. September here is incredibly hot and humid and loss of air conditioning is not as trivial as it sounds. Andrina, the owners contact person was able to get the unit repaired.
The unit is described as having a clothes washer; an item without which we would not have rented the condo. We were able to do one wash after the first week and the washer died. This washer was well beyond its life expectancy and should have been replaced long ago. I even drove Andrina to an appliance store to purchase a new washer, but she did not receive funds from the owner during our stay. Seating in the condo is non existent except for the what the owner calls an Indonesian Daybed. This daybed doesn't remotely qualify as a bed or a chair. We had to resort to using beach chairs to watch TV, grab a bite or use a laptop.
The kitchen can work for 2 people even with a mini fridge,were it not for the location of the toaster oven and microwave on a shelf 6ft. above the sink. I'm 6ft. tall and had to stand on my toes with a flashlight to determine if the toast was done. Ugh.
Orient Beach is describe as having beautiful white sand. This may be true, but we never saw it because the bay has a chronic infestation of rotting, smelly seaweed. The Waikiki resort at the far end of the beach bulldozes their sea weed away mornings and evenings for its cruise ship customers. We understand the sea weed problem is not new. Other reviewers have described the road approaching the condo as having serious potholes. I think it more accurate to describe driving on this street like driving on a dry stream bed for 1/2 mile.
Any person wishing to contact me with additional questions must get my contact information from the owner who I hereby permit to provide. I also permit VRBO to do likewise.
We had a very relaxing week in Saint Martin. We were very happy with the condo. Very pleased with the décor and view of the beach. Although there is no room service during the weeks stay, that is fine with us! Complete privacy. :) Also, we had booked a weeks stay there a few months before and had to cancel it just days before we were suppose to go...due to a medical emergency. Alex responded extremely quickly and refunded all of our payment to him. That was very much appreciated by us! We didn't do a lot while there so I can't say a lot about the island. Our goal was to have a relaxing week and we did! I think my only negative thing to say about anything is some of the road conditions were pretty bad with potholes, etc. But everyone was very nice. The weather was great and the location of the condo gave us a steady breeze that we loved. We have vacationed on many different Caribbean islands and consider Saint Martin one of the better ones. :)
Alex's condo is exactly as described! The unit is spacious, clean, and the best terrace of all! We ate breakfast every day on the terrace and ended our evenings with a glass of wine listening to the waves. There is a small fridge which did accommodate enough for 2 of us. The kitchen has all supplies you need and we did cook in a couple of times. Alex took special care to provide a few staples upon arrival as well which was very nice!
Andrina met us upon our arrival and was such a pleasure. She guided us to the condo (which can be a bit confusing at first), and welcomed us into the unit. Alex provides a local cell phone which we did not use, but was nice to have in case of emergency. Andrina called us the day before we left to find out what time we needed to leave and she met us at the condo and "checked"us out. We did rent a car from Marcus which was fantastic as well. The condo has it's own parking spot which was a nice stroll to the unit.
You will need a rental car to get around the island and go with Marcus! He picked us up at the airport right on time and then dropped us off as well. Direct service! No waiting at the rental car lines coming out of the airport. Nice small car, great service!
Someone had mentioned previously the road to the condo. WOW! It was riddled with pot holes and made for a very adventurous ride every day. You literally have to navigate from hole to hole so that your tires don't get swallowed! On day 5 on, our rear tire needed air every day. On our last day, some machinery was in digging up 1/2 side of the road which actually made it better.
Each night we would walk down the beach to the Bikini bar where they had great happy hours. There are many delicious restaurants in that area and then we'd walk the beach home.
The pool was fantastic as well! Exceptionally kept and a great refresher from the sun!
You can't go wrong with this unit! Thanks to Alex, Andrina and Marcus for a fantastic vacation!
