This is a well maintained, ocean view property. The pictures are as shows. Room was clean, and had all the tools needed to cook, laundry, sleep. We enjoyed sleeping at night with the ocean breeze coming through the screen sliding doors. Although we had air conditioning, really did not use, loved the sound of ocean crashing the shore at night. Best sleep in years.
The surrounding area is a little run down, but, if you are looking for "Americanized" probably should stay on the Dutch side.
Negatives would be all the seaweed on the beach and ice cold pool.
We chose to visit the different beaches of St. Martin and Anguilla, so the seaweed really did not bother us.
Local food in Grand Case was outstanding. Ocean 82 is by far the best in Grand Case.
A restaurant close to Mont Vernon, Rancho Del Sol, has great pizza, they deliver if you are wanting to stay in, but for breakfast, the Paradise View is tops. It is on the same road leading to Rancho, at the top of hill on right going south.
Joanne did not have an extra night so we stayed at the Westin, wow what a disappointment after spending 7 nights at her place. I could not tell if I was in St. Martin, or Miami. I would and have recommended this place to everyone I know. What a great place.

This oceanfront studio was just as advertised. Modern, clean, right on the beach,
bright and airy. Easy and fast to deal with owner, fantastic location. Would rent
this studio again. Highly recommended.

“Condo and owner are excellent, complex needs work”
Reviewed December 22, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

My wife and I stayed for a week in December, 2014. First the positives. The condo is as advertised. If you like the pictures then you will like the condo. The condo itself is very clean, bright and minimalist as the pictures show. Very Ikea-y. Joanna was very responsive and pleasant to work with; always responding to emails quickly. There is a very nice view of Orient beach from the balcony. The bathroom is nice and there is good water pressure. You can't beat the room for the price she is offering.

The three stars are entirely due to Joanna and her condo and I feel bad not giving a higher rating because none of the negatives are in the owner's control. The 4th star is for the bang for your buck. The complex itself is dated and needs a fair amount of work. There was some work being done as I was there so maybe they are addressing this issue. The complex seems about 50/50 vacation rentals and permanent residents. The road in to the complex is dilapidated even by island standards. By the end of the week I had popped a tire on my rental car from the rough and pot holed road in and out. We had rain for a couple days in a row and the dirt parking area turned into a mud pit. It is also very poorly lit and there was at least one car break in (luckily not us) while we were there. Be aware that there is a decent uphill walk from the parking area to the condo.

This complex is on the far end of Orient Beach and off the road to Pinel Island. This means that it is a car ride from everywhere and not really walkable to anywhere.

All in all, I have absolutely no complaints with the owner and the condo itself. The price is right and you definitely get your money's worth. The Main drawback is the complex itself, especially the road and parking situation; which is the biggest negative and should be taken into account before booking. I would not hesitate to recommend this place as long as you know the negatives (again, the negatives are not the owner's fault). If that is your price range though you're not going to get an oasis and you definite get your money's worth from the condo alone.

“Very Very Special Place!!!”

My husband and I stayed here for 11 nights in November. We were not disappointed by the condo or the view. We were on the 3rd floor of the building and had a wonderful view of orient and beyond. We have stayed at Mt. Vernon before in a different condo and this one was much nicer in décor and layout. We did rent a car and if you are staying in Mt Vernon for very long you really need a car. There is a lot of walking and it is hilly but we did not mind. We had some TV issue but made due (we were not here to watch TV). It was nice that toilet paper was in the condo and paper towels, not sure if this is the usual here but the condo we rented here before nothing was included. Orient was SOOO disappointing this time the sea weed was terrible. In front of Mt. Vernon I think once a week the beach was plowed and the sea weed removed but between Mt Vernon and the main Orient area it was bad. Joanna was wonderful to work with and always a quick response to emails. Super fast return on deposit. Wi Fi works wonderful. Would come back here in a heart beat!

This is a nice condo with a great view. Quiet and peaceful.

Mont Vernon is a little run down overall but they are improving it.

Joanna is a pleasure to do biz with.
