We have stayed in the same studio apartment for the past few years.
This studio apartment is perfect for us, Bathroom, Kitchen, Washer, Large king sized bed, living room sofa, TV, Wifi, air conditioned,lovely balcony with stunning view of Orient beach, where we watch the sunrise and sunset everyday. It is very tastefully decorated. Its location is perfect, the beach on your doorstep.
Nearby attractions are village of Grand Case, with Bistro Caraibes being one of the best restaurants there, Orient Village, with restaurants, grocery store etc. Gymfit is also nearby and offers weekly memberships.
Hurricane Irma did obviously cause a lot of damage,but we have always enjoyed our 2 weeks in St Martin, that we decided that if the airport was open and 'our' studio apartment available we were going. We have absolutely NO REGRETS about that decision. The recovery process had started, and was ongoing. Hurricane Irma did not succeed in damaging the warm welcoming nature, and the spirit of the people of St Martin.
We are returning once again in January 2019, already have the studio apartment and our flights booked.
If you are planning a trip to the Carribean, this studio apartment in Orient bay is the perfect place to go.
This studio is clean, nicely decorated, and has sliding glass doors out to a veranda with an amazing view. Comfortable king size bed, good AC. We like it and are very pleased with their service. We have been renting with Amaury & Thibault for 8 years. We are heading back again soon.
Our studio looks exactly like the picture. The landlords are very responsive to our needs. The whole resort is recovering from Irma, with constant repairs and improvements. The beach and weather are gorgeous, as usual. Beach bars and restaurants are few but are returning. We have already booked for 2019.
We enjoyed out stay very much. The view and sound of the ocean were perfect, and the studio was just a few minute's walk down to the beach. The resort was damaged by the hurricane (no pool, only some banisters on landscape stairways, etc), but the studio was very comfortable and the owner was very accommodating. The owner is also part owner of Bistrot Caraibe in Grand Case. The food there was phenomenal, and we appreciated the renters discount. We are looking forward to our return in 2019 or 2020.
Amaury Meziere was very helpful and easy to book with and this is a beautiful unit in the Mount Vernon complex. Be aware, this is not a hotel. If you want maid service or a staffed lobby, look elsewhere. For us, we love the quiet and privacy and don't want those amenities. The room had a kitchenette, with everything we needed. There was a comfortable sofa and a large screen tv with several channels in English. A washing machine was a big plus, as it allowed us to pack less. The quiet balcony gives a view to the ocean, and we awoke several windy mornings to the sound of the crashing surf. It was the perfect place for morning coffee or a late afternoon glass of wine. Beautiful Orient beach is a couple minutes walk, passing by the complex's lovely pool. And the gastronomic capital, Grand Case, is a short drive. The road into the complex is quite rough, but driving slowly and trying to avoid the worst of the potholes, our little rental car did fine. The only issue we had was that we are used to more substantial pillows and found those provided thin and uncomfortable. We should have purchased a couple, as that would have enhanced our stay. Maybe next time we will pack a couple of our own. Otherwise, this was a lovely unit and a wonderful rental experience.
We stayed here for 4 nights and it was a very nice start to the beginning of our trip. The rental was very clean and nicely taken care of. The view is awesome as well. This would not be ideal for an elderly couple as the walk up to the rental can be exhausting (I'm 26 and in shape and the walk up to the rental could be very exhausting especially if it was very hot out). I did see some cars drive up to the rentals on the sidewalks but we were unsure if people were really allowed to do so. Overall, great experience and it's affordable!!
My husband and I stayed in one of the Meziere brothers' studios last week and are very glad we did. It it excellent value and has the most beautiful view along with all amenities.
The studio was clean and had a fully appointed kitchen as well as a front-loader laundry machine. The site has a terrific pool, direct access to the beach and is only a 10 minute walk to the resort area of Orient Bay Beach. We bought groceries from a few of the markets nearby and prepared all our breakfasts which we ate on our balcony as the sun rose over the sea...amazing.
We didn't get a chance to meet Thibault (he was away) but had the pleasure of dealing with Amaury who was just wonderful. We ate in their restaurant Bistro Caribes twice because it was the most outstanding culinary experience of our lives (and we love to eat).
We will definitely stay here again.
