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 World

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.

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.

Very good to excellent

  • 4 of 5

Road leading up to it is greatly overdue for repair and could cause us to look elsewhere. Taxis didn't want to come and get us!

Room itself was very good to excellent. Owner needs to be aware of poor seal on glass doors that results in constant wind noise. Maybe a little more time spent showing us the room would have helped. We had a hard time finding the tv remote and ac adjustment remote. I'd give 4.5 stars. My short wish list would have on it, beach chairs we could take to where we want them instead of always needing to go to the busy bar/restaurant areas along the beach. Pizza on site was convenient and very good and saved us from walking greater distances when we wanted easy. We didn't explore the island but there really wasn't a need to, this place's location had all we wanted.

Beautiful Condo with Fantastic View

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 2 week stay at Joanna's condo and found with the pool area and the Orient beach right outside the gate that we only needed to leave to find fantastic places for dinner. Linda was waiting to check us in when we arrived and when we checked out and we really appreciated that as we saw people waiting out front to get to their condos. Great job Linda and Great Condo Joanna.

Awesome Ocean View!

  • 5 of 5

Joanna's Studio has a great view of the beach!..My husband and I were tempted to sit on the balcony all day and look at the azure water!

The contemporary-styled apartment was very clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.

Mount Vernon is located just a few minutes drive to grocery stores and many great restaurants in the area on the French side.The drive to the Dutch side is not far and there are many fabulous restaurants to discover there as well.

We were tired from our trip on arrival day and decided to try the pizza from the little pizza place at

Mt. Vernon where you can pull up a chair and have a beer or wine while you wait for your pizza, the pizza was fabulous! There is also a tiny little store adjacent where we bought fresh baguettes for breakfast... (every morning).

Other restaurants and beach bars in Orient Village are walking distance down the beach from Mt. Vernon.

Very relaxing and stress free, just what we were looking for! Thanks so much!
