Fantastic Stay! We will be back!
Our stay at this studio condo located at the former Mont Vernon Hotel was outstanding! The photos and information about the condo are completely truthful.
This studio condo is on the French side and nicely placed on the north end of Orient Bay with a view of St Barts and all of Orient Bay.
The studio location is ideal, facing right onto Orient Bay and only a couple of miles to Grand Case, with it's great restaurants and shops, and a short drive to a good market called Simply . There is good security and we felt totally safe.
This studio condo is a great find. The view from this unit to Orient Bay and St Barts was fantastic.It is just like the photos. The condo is located on the top floor so you do need to negotiate a few stairs. Linda, the property manger, and her husband helped us with our bags and were very good in explaining how everything works. The condo has a good a/c and TV both with remote controls. The storm shutter is electric and can be raised or lowered with the touch of a button. We left it open and watched the morning sunrise! For people not accustomed to European standards, don't expect maid service or fresh towels every day, that said there is a European washer/dryer in the bathroom and you can get additional cleaning service for a fee.
This studio condo is great for two people and a small child. The bed was fantastic as was the couch. The kitchen is modern of French design, with lighted cabinets, European frig and modern electric stove and microwave. Have Linda explain about how the stove works (it was great to cook on (for electric), but took a bit of figuring out). Everything in the studio is new.
We ate most of our meals in and kitchen works well. There are restaurants down the beach and in Grand Case. If you need something there is a small store in the complex. This is a great deal both in location and price. We will be coming back and have told all our island friends about the place.
The former Mont Vernon Hotel is like a majestic old dowager which, while a bit dated and in need of a new dress, is still charming . One can see the splendor of the past and the potential of the future. The pool has been upgraded and is clean and very nice. The exteriors and landscaping need work but the paths lead directly to the beach just a minute away. We never had problems with parking, but it could be a bit of a problem if you go out to dinner and come back late.
We highly recommend this studio at Mont Vernon on Orient Bay.
