I am a teacher in Cul-de sac High-school and I've been living in Saint-Martin for 12 Years.
I started my studies in France where I am from, and
finished them in London. Then I decided to go and live in the caribbean. I Lived two years in Guadeloupe and then I moved to Saint-Martin.
I really liked the cultural mix on this island and the fact that you can speak english, french, pay in dollars or euro in the same day.
ALEXANDRE Francois purchased this apartment in 2006
I found the very peaceful place of the Residence Hôtel Mont-Vernon and I never moved from there ! The life is so wonderful in this place of the island... and it has improved a lot since I settled here : you have now a very big commercial center at 5 minutes from the residence, and you can find there all you need !
The quality of life and safety improved also inside the residence with security guard night and days and video security night and days. The private parking places are now very well adjusted to the peopole living in the residence. There is a nice Bar/Pizzeria inside the residence with free delivery.
There are no cars inside the residence, just the noise of the waves.
This place is so quiet and safe, you feel so good there alone or with your family.
I decided to stay here with my family and share this nice place to other people that want to discover the island by renting bedrooms.
My studio is a very peaceful place where you can enjoy ether the sunset and the view over the pond with it's wildlife and birds or the sea-view with the beach of Orient-bay.
The studio is very bright, with the sunlight inside the apartment, but not too warm, with a lot of fresh air coming trought.The studio is wide and comfortable. No mosquitoes (or very few) because it's located on the top of the building.
You would realy feel like home in this all furnished apartment with Internet (Wi-Fi) and TV flat screen, with HBO, Show-time and a lot of other programs.
My wife and I stayed for a week at this property in mid Feb 2017 and we enjoyed our time immensely. The owner Francois was very nice, he lives in a different unit in the Mont Vernon development so he's accessible if you need anything. The view of Orient Bay is amazing, the rental has a well equipped kitchen, pretty good wi-fi (we were able to stream Netflix to our computer, not much on the local TV), comfortable bed, and nice area to sit out on the balcony to enjoy the view. There is A/C but we never turned it on, we slept every night with the sea breeze and sound of the surf (it's safe to keep it open since it's on the 3rd floor). This was our third visit to St Martin and the Orient Beach area is our favorite part of the island. The Mont Vernon development is conveniently located at the north end of the beach and combines great views with easy access down to the pool and beach (if you don't mind going up and down some steps). There's a little restaurant and store up by the reception area that has basic supplies, pastries in the morning (except Sunday), and good sandwiches & pizza. The property has good security. On the way to/from the main road you'll drive by a small restaurant called Le Taitu, it has affordable prices and always good food, we ate there almost every day. Orient Village also has a collection of very good restaurants (we loved the Thai 'fondu' at Tai Chi). There's some decent snorkeling out around the rocks at the north end of Orient Beach although the water can be a bit rough at times. I saw a variety of fish, coral, and some squid. We also snorkeled along the shoreline north of the little beach by the Grand Case Beach Club which was calmer water and we saw a good variety of fish including barracuda and sting rays. If you go over to Phillipsburg search online first to see how many cruise ships are in port...some days it can be as many as half a dozen ships with 17,000 passengers in port. You don't want to be there on one of those days! Also we've generally found the food on the Dutch side to be not as good as the French side, and be careful especially in Phillipsburg where they don't need to earn repeat business (from transient ship passengers) so they'll sometimes add tip to your bill and hope you don't notice and pay them a double tip. And then there's Maho Beach, not as good as it used to be now that KLM no longer uses 747s and the beach is more crowded than ever, but still a fun place to hang out.
This was our 5th visit to SXM we have always stayed at Mount Vernon. This was the first time at this studio. The owner was great and easy to work with he was so kind that he helped us on arrival haul all our stuff to the unit. The unit was clean and well equipped. The sunsets were great from the balcony. The bed was comfortable, ac great. We stayed 2 weeks the time went fast.
The pool was well maintained and there was new lounge chairs to use.
We ate most our dinners in the unit due to sand gravity, for groceries we had the taxi from the airport stop and then during our stay we would walk to Orient Village for items and bakery items. We also ate at The Yellow Submarine food was great.
We are walkers so the steps up and down around the complex were no problem.
The WiFi was varied so if you need the WiFi for work etc you may have issues. We were on vacation so it worked for us that we could stay connected with family back home.
We did bring a set of towels but we normally do this no matter who we rent from.
I was disappointed to see the novelty of Orient Beach gone the various bars/restaurants have been torn down replaced with cookie cutter buildings. So sad to see. A lot of beach erosion.
