First time we have been to St Martin, but not our last. Having stayed on 10 to15 different islands in the Caribbean this is one of the best. We normally stay at high end all inclusive resorts so this was a big change, but with some mind adjustments it was great. We rented from Frank Vanneste in the Aruba building,... More

This is not a service oriented area, Mount Vernon is a collection of owned and short term rental units. Convenience store and pizza place are only open mornings and evenings after 5:30 and closed Saturday and Sunday so make sure you bring food with you unless you wish to walk down the beach some distance to a beach restaurant.

We rented our studio from Thibault and Amaury, the owners of Bistrot Caraibes in Grand Case. It was absolutely fantastic, very relaxing, great walks on the beach, not many people around. On Friday, there might have been 4 dozen people at the pool, but most of the time maybe 1 - 2 dozen. We stayed in the Aruba unit and... More

You won't find a traditional booking site or hotel listing for the Mount Vernon Beach Resort, but with any luck you'll find a gem along Orient Beach. The former Mount Vernon Beach Resort is now privately owned studios, a mix of locals and visitors. Studios and apartments are commonly listed through search engines such as FlipKey and others.

Our family rented a studio in this former hotel (now converted into owner-occupied or rented studios) for 2 weeks over the holidays. The studio we rented was in Anguilla building, very lose to the lobby but a bit of a steep walk fro beach and pool area. We did not mind the walk as the grounds are very pretty and... More

I found this rental property here on trip advisor & was initially reluctant to rent vs stay in a hotel like my other 2 trips to St Maarten but after we arrived & saw this place I knew my husband & I made the right decision. The rental property is located in the old Mount Vernon hotel on Orient Beach... More

It is a Hotel converted to european style apartments, condition depends on how and when owner renovated. Its about 10 min walk to the center of the beach where all the bars are - lots of food and drink choices. Beach is very nice. You need a car to get grossers and to move around the island.

This was our first time renting a place at Orient Beach and I have to say , I was very happy with the outcome. I checked out probably 20 places on the web site "Home Away" and the place I decided on was great. I'll start with the pros--I loved the location of this resort. It was at the end... More

This is a former hotel that went out of business and has been converted to condo's for rent by various owners plus some residents. We stayed at Orient Beach Studios; owned by two French brothers that also run a high-end restaurant in Grand Case. Being on the French side, power conversion was an issue. They provide one converter but it... More

Last month my wife and I stayed at StudioSXM in Mount Vernon for a week. We loved it. If we could go back this afternoon, we would. Of course, Orient Beach itself has something to do with that -- as does the fact that we were in good company, my wife's sister and her 16-year-old daughter. But we were so... More
