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 2009
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.
There is only good to say about this studio. If not the best location in Mont Vernon, it is in the top three. Great view of the pool and beach with easy access from the ground floor slider to both. The studio was equipped with nearly everything one could desire with the exception of a microwave for re-heating the wonderful cuisine from the near-by restaurants. It was clean, the bed comfortable, nice shower (once we figured out how to make it work) and everything worked well. The only small downside was that for us, there was not comfortable seating in the studio. A nice chair, or two, to allow one to sit and enjoy the view from inside would be a great addition. Outside, the Mont Vernon complex is a little time worn and could use some maintenance. Although there was a bit of a walk from the parking, it was not difficult, and parking was always available. The owner, Alex, and local manager, Desmond, were available via the supplied local cell phone, and both checked on us through our stay to make sure all was well. We used the rental car company recommended by Alex (Justice) and owner Marcus was very nice. The only glitch was that he forgot we were coming and we waited a bit before he came and picked us up at the airport, but all worked out. There are some very good restaurants in nearby Orient Village (check TripAdvisor) as well as on the beach (but hours on the beach businesses were limited in many cases to before 5pm). We did a island boat tour with Captain Bob--despite the wind limiting where we could go, we had a blast but the snorkeling was not great. I would rent this studio from Alex in a second if returning to the island. There is not enough space for me to continue with the positives, but this was a great trip with a awesome location to base from!
We had a wonderful time staying at this condo. The location within the Mont Vernon complex is one of the best as it is less than 100 yards from the entrance to the beach. The front terrace was perfect for evening cocktails and listening to the waves crash in. There are a few cats in the complex that like to come by expecting to be fed which was initially an issue as my wife has cat allergies, but fortunately after being shooed away a few times they seemed to get the message. Alex was very responsive and checked in with us multiple times to make sure everything was to our liking. The digital shower was wonderful once we figured out how to use it (the settings knob requires some effort to twist) and doesn't have any of the hot water/pressure issues we have encountered at other units. The kitchen had about everything you would need for quick meals and the wave radio was a plus. The only minor criticism we had was to replace the pillows which seemed flat and worn. Overall we were very pleased with our choice and would definitely consider booking this unit again on our next trip.
We loved our stay in this condo located just steps away from the beach. The condo was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed. We stayed for ten days and had such a wonderful time exploring the area with local restaurants, shops and grocery store within a ten minute walk on the beach. The pool was very nice and was well maintained every day. The beach on our end was not crowded, but some days we walked a little ways up the beach and sat at the beach bar/restaurants which had more people. The chairs cost $10 each or if you ate lunch there, they didn't charge us. We took a little boat over to Pinel Island one day and really enjoyed our time there snorkeling. One day we went on a sailboat excursion around the island of Anguilla and REALLY enjoyed that. One day we hiked up to Pic Paradis and the view from up there was breathtaking. We rented a car from Marcus at Justice Rental who both picked us up and took us back to the airport. Being able to drive around the island was really nice but the traffic can be really bad at times. We ate several times in Grand Case and really enjoyed that, the local restaurants there were great. There is a lovely church on the main street in Grand Case where we attended Mass on Sunday and loved it. The people were very welcoming and friendly. We took a ferry over to St. Barth's and rented a four-wheeler and toured the island and beautiful beaches. Most of all my husband and I cannot begin to convey our gratitude to Alex, the manager of the condo, for being so good at getting back to us when we had questions or concerns. He went over and beyond for us and it really meant a lot that he was so helpful and welcoming. We highly recommend this place and hope to return one day with our family.
We had a fantastic stay over Christmas at Alex's place which was beautifully situated very close to Orient Beach. Fresh baguettes and croissants were but a 10 minute walk along the shore to French cafes. The apartment is very nicely appointed with everything you'd need during your stay. One thing I will mention is that there is only a small toaster oven should you need to bake or broil anything.
It's worth driving to Grande Marche to get groceries as the nearer market is a tad lacking and there are horrendous lineups.
One absolutely must rent a vehicle and I would definitely recommend a car since it does rain rather often on the island - sporadically and short in duration, but not something you want to get stuck in on a moped.
The bed is king sized and comfortable if you enjoy a very firm mattress. It was really nice to be able to sit out on the patio and drink wine while enjoying the lapping sounds of the wave .
Overall, highly recommended. We had a wonderful tim .
We stayed and relaxed for two weeks! Although the complex itself in in need of some TLC, the unit was as described and very clean. Alex was in touch when we had internet problems and was fixed asap. Desmond met us upon arrival and was very friendly and helpful. The pool area is also very lovely. Seaweed is a problem at this end of Orient Beach, but was being worked on while we were there. Definately rent a car and we were happy with Justice as recommended by Alex as well. Saint Maarten and their people is a wonderful place to vacation. Would return again.
We were so happy when we arrived at the apartment to find all of the description and pictures very accurate and then some! The first hour we arrived Alex was calling to welcome us to the island and ensuring everything was ok and offering his service 24/7. The studio was well equipped with everything needed to have a comfortable home like environment. It was so nice to be on the ground level, it made very convenient access to pool and beach.
The property is very private and safe with 24 hour security, this made us feel very comfortable.
Just a short walk down Orient Beach we found everything we needed. We especially enjoyed our morning walks on the beach to get freshly squeezed juice and baguette.
I would highly recommend a car rental if you want to take in all of the beauty of St. Martin as well as a ferry ride over to Anguilla, it's just spectacular!!
Our 33 days spent in Alex's condo has been memorable and we are now planning for our return trip back in the fall.
I would without hesitation recommend this property... I hope you enjoy as much as we have!!!
