Relaxing at Orient Beach
Loved this location! Townhouse is within Orient Village with many great restaurants within very short walking distance. The beach is very close, as well. Great beach for taking walks with beautiful white sand and comfortable temperatures for spending the day there. Second year renting a townhome in Orient Village in March. Had a different townhouse last year (Searulean) and it and Ornella were great. Property descriptions, photos and amenities were accurate. The TV in Ornella had French networks; CNN was the only English speaking network.

Our Ornella Vacation
My wife and I enjoyed our vacation staying at Ornella. The property was as advertised, very clean and had all the amenities we expected. Christine from Saint Martin Vacation did an amazing job for us as we had a reservation issue. My only recommendation would be to ask the owners to clean and trim up the property or make the property maintenance free.

St Martin Villa and Orient Bay stay
Stayed in January 2016 — The rental unit was excellent, even nicer than the pictures Very clean and it had all of the conveinces to make our stay comfortable We had issues trying to call the management from the villa, I think the phone at the villa may require a phone card. We sent emails to concierge and they responded quickly Orient Bay is a bit pricey for the resturaunts and the bars on the beach were asking 25 Euros a day for chairs and an umbrella. It would be nice if the villas were able to have reserved chairs and umbrellas for the stay Overall very relaxing and a beautiful spot

Glad we decided to stay here
Stayed in April 2015 — About the reviewer: there were three of us staying here: husband, wife, and 5-year-old daughter. We’re risk averse, prefer safe environments, like having a kitchen to prepare simple meals while on vacation but also like to dine out at places that aren’t going to break the bank. This was our first trip to St Martin and we did a TON of research about where we should stay. The unit itself, the Villa Ornella, is really very nice—just as nice as it looks in the pictures on. The two bedrooms upstairs are comfortable and the air conditioning works well. The living room, dining area, and kitchen were just the right size for the three of us and I think it would also work well for a family of four, or two couples. The BBQ outside is a great size for grilling and very clean. Plenty to work with in the kitchen as well, but oddly, we couldn’t find any plates. We figured it might have been a European thing. And the pool is a nice size. We had issues with the filter not working the first several days we were there and it wasn’t repaired due to the Easter holiday. Felicia, the booking agent, she did everything she could to get it fixed for us. More importantly, the management company reimbursed us reasonably because we were unable to swim in the pool for 4 out of 7 days at the Villa Ornella. Also, the Villa is a 5 min walk from Orient Beach. It’s extremely convenient if you don’t rent a car and just want to hang on Orient Beach for your stay. We rented a car (2 dedicated spots in front of the Villa) and traveled daily. There’s also what us Americans would call a small supermarket 5 mins away by foot, as well as a few small cafes and shops. Overall, the Villa Ornella is really nice: spacious, clean, safe, quiet, and a short walk to the beach and a few shops and restaurants. FYI, the Thai Chi restaurant in Orient Village has great food.

Ornella villa in Orient Beach
Stayed in March 2015 — The villa was overall quite nice. The only thing that was a (slight) drawback was that it was beside a laneway, which is used by cars and other vehicles a bit, so the privacy wasn’t as much as might have been expected from the photos. Quite a nice villa, though, and excellent service from management.

Our stay was amazing
My husband and I visted St. Martin for our Honeymoon and we stayed at Villa Ornella. Our stay was amazing! This house is so close to the beach. Literally a 2 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to the best bars and restaurants. We are already considering our next visit to the island. We will definitely stay at Villa Ornella!

Neighborhood Living on Orient Beach
Stayed in May 2014 — Internet pictures does not do this place justice. Just gourgeous, Perfect Carribean vacation spot. Great neighborhood. Private, secure and a leisurley 3 minute walk to Orient Beach with a drink in hand.
Stayed on St Martin several times and this place by far was the best. Upstairs Veranda with gourgeous outside furniture perfect spot for evening drinks and just relaxing.
Will definitely be back.
Thanks for the Great Memories.
