Villa comprenant vaste séjour donnant sur terrasse de 100m², 3 chambres, 3 Sdb privatives, cuisine toute équipée. Salon d'extérieur. Piscine à débordement. Le tout avec une vue magnifique à 180° sur la mer des caraïbes, à 700m de la plage et 450m de la marina et commerces.
Exactly as advertised. Fantastic view of Orient Bay... keep the balcony doors open at night and sleep to the sounds of ocean waves. Walk down the hill to the pool and the beach. Very clean, the shower is heaven. A bit of a hike to the room, so stock up on groceries wine, water, and snacks. The complex is far from restaurants, so you need a car for sure.
Villa French was absolutely beautiful - the pictures don't begin to do the view justice, and the home was really spacious and well-kept. There are two main parts to the house joined with an amazing outdoor eating space and infinity pool, so it's great for groups of friends or a couple of families who want their own space but want to be right next to each other. Danielle was a wonderful hostess, and even had some local treats waiting for us when we arrived. Our only complaint was that we didn't get enough time there.
The apartment was pretty much as described. It's actually on the third floor (the host's description says Second floor when translated into English), but we were happy about it. A special word about the mattress, it was very comfortable.
The view truly is amazing, you can see the whole Orient Bay from it. The balcony is spacious and has a big table with chairs. There were lots of humming birds flying around the balcony (the neighbor's balcony had a nectar feeder) so we could watch them all the time, which was nice.
The grounds are pretty and well-kept, even though the complex is not in its prime. Lots of tropical vegetation and flowers. We didn't use the pool, but it looked fine. The beach around the residence was pretty quiet and not busy, no annoying vendors or cruise-ship crowds (those are farther toward the middle of the bay). Most people were speaking French, many seemed to actually live there.
The apartment was centrally located, both parking lots being about the same distance from it. A bit of walking involved, but not bad. Most attractions were a pretty short (albeit bumpy) ride from the residence, like Grand Case and Marigot. We went to Philipsburg once and were really glad we stayed at Mont Vernon, it seemed so much more beautiful and relaxed that that area.
The only downsides to our stay were problems with running water and internet. The water would completely disappear for periods of time, mostly during the day, and after it came back it would be rusty for some time. Gabriel explained that it was not a problem at the residence but some temporary water maintenance issues on the whole northern part of the island, and that they weren't told about it beforehand.
The internet was down a lot, sometimes for days, for reasons we don't know.
Overall, though, we had a pleasant stay, and felt like it was a better alternative to a hotel.
The studio is quite lovely and has a panoramic view of Orient Bay and St. Barths in the distance. We would absolutely return to the studio and rent from Gabriel and his associates, Orianne, Sabrina and Alexandra again! Many thanks to them for making us feel welcomed and comfortable.
Très belle maison, super bien situe. Proche de tout. Définitivement, nous la recommandons!
This place is absolutely great. The views are fantastic. The location on the island is perfect - no more than a quick drive anywhere scenic or fun. Pinel Island (a favorite!) is only a 2 minute drive as well!
Gabriel supplied everything I needed and even some treats too! She was very helpful to provide extra information about the island and things to do.
I'd definitely stay here again!
For our honeymoon, my wife and I stayed at one of the apartments Gabriel rents out. Ours was room 5301 in the Tortola building. We really enjoyed our stay. Although we weren't right on the beach, this room has a great view of Orient Bay from the balcony and the beach is just a short walk away. The room was clean and had a full kitchen. Also, Gabriel and his coworkers were always nice and easy to deal with. Overall we thought this room was a really good deal on what can otherwise be a relatively expensive island.
If you are looking for a hotel experience with lots of restaurants nearby, then I would look elsewhere. But if you're looking for a quieter place to stay on the French side of the island I would definitely recommend this apartment!
The studio had everything we needed for our stay, including a fully stocked kitchen so we could make our own meals without any issue. The location is very nice as well with a nice view of the beach from the balcony. Sabrina was nice and accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay!
We 've stayed at the Mont Vernon studio for 2 weeks and have enjoyed a lot the place itself and the studio. The studio has wonderfull ocean view and nice terrace. Though the studio is not freshly renovated it is rather clean and comfortable. The studio is equiped with all the kitchen staff besides if you need something you always can have it from Gabriel's team. Sabrina was very kind and helpfull and we were provided with all the staff we specially needed within a very short period of time.
The swimming pool area is very nice and clean and really huge though there is no cafe or beach bar nearby.
The only issue we faced that there is no supermarket in a walking distance so you'll definately need a car to reach it (4km) and in the grocery there is not enough choise of things and food you may need.
We would recommend this place for the holiday and we'd like to come back again.
Thanks Gabriel, Sabrina and the team for the hospitality and kind care of our family!
Superbe séjour de 10 jours avec ma conjointe et ma fille de 6 ans!
Appartement propre et à proximité de tout : 1 min de marche de la plage, 5 min de la rue marchande et des restos. Si vous voulez être proche de tout et en tranquillé, c'est le bon endroit. Ameublement et équipement neufs et complets.
Service client irréprochable, courtois et rapide. Vous serez bien reçus par Gabriel et son équipe. Ils ont été attentifs à nos besoins et soucieux des petits détails. Exemple : arrangements pour la voiture de location, bières, jus et panier de grignotines à l'arrivée.
Nous pensons y retourner l'an prochain. Je vous recommande fortement cet endroit!
