About Joanna Ozga

We are architects with a practice based in Chicago. First of all, we were attracted to Saint Martin because of the unique situation and our love of the water sports like windsurfing, boats and, more recently, kite-surfing. We return to the island because of the fantastic French cuisine, breathtaking views and the friendships we have formed with local residents. We have completely rehabbed d the studio of Mount Vernon in 2013. We speak French and English.

Why Joanna Ozga chose Mont Vernon

Orient Bay is the best beach you could find in Caribbean with soft white sand and turquoise 85-degree water and air temperate weather ranging from 75 to 85 degrees, all year round. The Mount Vernon residences, located on the north end of Orient Beach, are calm and the three story buildings are designed on a human scale. Orient beach offers access to all possible water sports, a private pool and lounge deck, and the numerous restaurants that let guests taste exquisite French cuisine with a Creole twist.

What makes this apartment unique

Our beachfront apartment building, Antigua is located directly on the shore, so guests enjoy an uninterrupted ocean view. The luxurious property features a mix of short-term and permanent residents, so guests experience daily life in the Caribbean, and discover the Island on their own terms. The second floor (American 3rd floor) is optimal for getting a light, fresh breeze from the ocean while staying comfortable day and night without the need for air conditioning (AC is, of course, provided, should guests prefer it). A new sliding glass door that hides behind a sidewall pocket gives a unified feel to the space and lets guests enjoy total freedom between the indoor living space and the outdoor balcony. New, electronically controlled exterior rolling shutters allow guests to control lighting conditions at will.

We agree! Fantastic studio!

  • 5 of 5

This studio was exactly as described, and had such a fabulous view that we cooked more dinners than usual for us on vacation, just so we could enjoy it. The kitchen is modern and well stocked with dishes and appliances, there is a washer/dryer, the bed and furniture are comfortable, plenty of towels and beach towels, and even converters for the outlets so you can safely charge your cellphones, iPad, etc. The location is convenient to restaurants in Grand Case and Orient Bay, and there is a large, well-stocked grocery store called Simply just a short drive away. The grounds are hilly and will quickly get you in shape, but would not be good for older folks who have hip or knee problems. The grounds are well maintained, as is the beautiful pool and deck area right off the beach. Parking can be a challenge if you come back late at night.

The owner, Joanna, and manager, Linda were helpful in letting us learn details, like how to use the cooktop. We had a minor plumbing problem that was promptly taken care of, and we were very satisfied with the service we received all week.

We had been to St. Martin twice before and stayed both times in a two bedroom unit at the Alamanda down the beach. While we have no complaints about the Alamanda, this studio is far superior in terms of spaciousness, abundant storage, modern kitchen facilities, and not least of all, the reasonable cost, even during high season. We plan to come back again, and we love the French side of the island, and this property is a great find!

Beautiful Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in Joanna's studio apartment and it was wonderful! We were very happy with our decision to stay on the French side of the island as it was less commercially built up than the Dutch side. Joanna's apartment has an amazing view of Orient Beach - we loved waking up each morning and eating breakfast on the balcony. We had trouble at first driving around the island because of the lack of street signs, but we quickly grew to love the opportunity to explore different areas on the way to our destinations. We can't say enough about Joanna's apartment - it was clean and updated and had one of the best views of Orient Beach.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

The studio apartment is exactly like the pictures. The design is well thought out and executed. The view is breathtaking every morning when you wake up and the sound of the waves is the best sound to go to sleep with! The location is perfect, the pool is well-maintained, the beach is the best in St. Martin and Joanna is delightful to work with. We had a wonderful stay in this idyllic setting.

Off the beaten path on Orient Bay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 8 nights in this spacious condo in February, escaping the hard cold of our upper Midwest home. The property was as listed - a sleek and updated kitchen with good kitchenware and sufficient dishes, a big and functional bathroom, and plenty of living space. The highlights: an unbeatable view of Orient Beach and neighboring St Bart's, a washer for dirty beach clothes, A/C for happy sleeping, WiFi for picking nearby dining options (Villa Pizza! Le Taitu!), and the all-important drying rack on the patio. Our only recommendations for improvement are perhaps a "studio binder" or book, listing a few things like where a nearby hospital is, upcoming festivals on the island (we inadvertently ran into a festival in Marigot), a map of the property, stuff like that. Also, we had a bit of confusion upon arrival; we couldn't find Linda at the appointed time and needed to call her to arrange the meeting. Email communications with Johanna were extremely smooth and prompt. This location is perfect for exploring the island, away from the cruise ship masses. We highly recommend purchasing the additional $30 reserved parking - especially in the afternoon and evening hours, people would be circling the communal lot searching for parking. We felt lucky to be able to zip into our reserved (and covered) spot with no hassle.

Excellent View

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 9 nights in Joanna's condo for our Anniversary in January. This condo has a fantastic view of Orient Beach! We loved the patio door, that even had a screen to keep the bugs out, so we could turn off the air conditioner and listen to the waves! Also, being on the second floor, we did not encounter mosquitos. The condo was just as the pictures show and very clean. We hired Linda, the manager to clean midweek and on our departure.

The pool in the complex is wonderful, and we actually enjoyed the hilly walk to the parking lot to and from our car. Every afternoon, when we would come back from the beach or exploring, we would walk the entire length of Orient Beach (which happens to be our favorite beach). The condo is in the perfect location to many beaches and resturants.

We are definitely looking forward to renting this condo again in the future! Barry and Lisa W

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

Great place, beautiful renovation and an incredible location. Joanna and her manager Linda were very easy to deal with. It took us a half day to get our bearings, but once we did we realized how great this place is. The room is right on Orient beach, but not right in the middle of all the activities and restaurants. True, Mont Vernon looks like it needs a little TLC, but not the room. The room was super and I'd rather have a great room and a good bed than a beautiful reception area, to be honest. The view was also amazing. Beautiful sunrises. The beach was peaceful and beautiful and the pool was super clean. I would recommend renting a car. You don't need to, because there are many excellent restaurants just a walk down the beach and into Orient Village. But to do some exploring and visiting other beaches, a car is very useful. This is a great apartment in a great location. (The grounds are a bit hilly, so not good for people with hip or knee problems.)
