Just finishing up a 10 day stay on Orient Beach at the Shamrock. We choose this location based on Trip Advisor reviews. My overwhelming impression is all of the 5 star reviews have over rated the place in some respects. This is a more than adequate place to stay on the island if it meets your requirements. I like to... More

SHAMROCK R, Propriétaire at Shamrock, responded to this review

I would like to try to clarify your comment to help people who read your review to get a better idea of our accommodations. First, you say a rental car is obligatory when you stay at Shamrock, but most people who stay or visit St Martin have a car, as there are no parking problems (in front of the apartment,... More

We enjoyed a lovely stay at Shamrock. Chantal was a delightful host who was available if necessary, but left us to enjoy a relaxing week. Location: Shamrock is located right at the entrance to the Orient Bay community. Although there is a lot of traffic going by, the noise did not bother us at all. We walked to the beach... More

We had an excellent stay at Shamrock. The owner, Chantal, is a very nice person and a wonderful host, the studio we rent was a perfect place to stay in Orient Bay, very convenient to the beach, grocery, restaurants and nightlife. I would definitely go back there again. Thank you Chantal!

We spent a week in #29 at Shamrock, and our hosts, Chantal and Stephane were excellent - always available (just ring the bell), and very nice and informative. They even hosted a party for everyone in the 8 units on Friday evening, with apps & drinks. Shamrock is a short walk to Orient beach and Le Village, with live music... More

My wife and I have been to St. Martin 22 times. We have a time share on the Dutch side but spend virtually all our beach time at Orient Beach, and love to eat in Grand Case, the gastronomic capital of the Western Hemisphere. We go for a month each winter and meet friends we have met on the island.... More

The Shamrock was a great choice for us. Chantal was a gracious host and very accommodating. It was about a 10 minute walk to the beach, as well as to town which had a grocery store with everything you would need. Also close to great restaurants, we ate at L'Astrolabe twice, it was a 5 minute walk from the property.... More

I recently spent 12 wonderful days on Orient with my 21 year old son during his winter recess. It was our third time staying at the Shamrock...my fourth overall. We were joined this year by my brother-in-law for his first trip to "The Friendly Island", while staying for an extended time on The French Side, though a 25 year visitor.... More

I spent the last week of Feb 2014 at this place. I wanted an apt that would be near Baie Orientale and would not have to rent a car to get to the beach. Also I wanted a place where I could make dinner if needed. The owners took me to the local grocery store to pick up a few... More

We spent only 4 days at Shamrock and everything was perfect. If anything was less than perfect, it is so minor that does not deserve to be mentioned here (like the lack of ventilation upstairs). Chantal is the nicest host we ever met. I highly recommend the baguettes sold at the small store by the beach - as good as... More

Stayed for four weeks at Shamrock and can highly recommend it to anyone. We arrived on the first day to a hummingbird outside our apartment! The apartment was clean, spacious and the decor was lovely. All of our needs were accommodated for by our hosts, who answered our endless stream of questions about the island. The pool and tropical garden... More
