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.
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.
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.
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.

Could not be a more romantic and relaxing stay!
We can't wait to return.
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!

Beautiful beachfront studio apartment - a chance to get a way. Market nearby for food and drink, only a 20-30 minute to anywhere on the island. This is more remote location (which we loved), so don't expect restaurants, clubs, etc. There are restaurants in the village, about a 15 minute walk away. Stay here I go u want a beautiful, modern space, secluded and a chance to relax. We will be back!
My bf and I chose Joanna's studio for our one week vocation here in St. Martin. Overall we are happy with our choice. the room is nice and clean. we love the balcony and the view of orient bay. we had breakfast here everyday! it is amazing. we enjoyed the pool as well. We did experienced one night out of water. it was not very pleasant, we couldn't use the bathroom and let alone taking a shower. but Joanna handled the situation very well. she refunded us for that night even though it was not her fault as the whole community was out of water. We really appreciated it. the manager Linda is very nice and friendly too. we didn't find the charger converter first night and she brought us another one. most of people we encountered in the community are french. they are very friendly. the road condition in St. Martin in general is not very good. people are driving crazy. the GPS we got from the car rental is not very useful neither. we solely relied on Google map(we didn't enable the international roaming) thank god the satellite signal is still working! and thank to my great sense of direction. lol. the traffic on dutch side, especially philipsburg is terrible. we were almost late for our boat tour one day due to the traffic. anyways, we had a great vocation and we highly recommend Joanna's studio!
