Orient--Only Mont Vernon??

It seems like no matter how much searching we do for private properties in Orient (studios, condos, villas) we only find Mont Vernon. The reviews are not impressive, although the pictures and the owners seems delightful.

We're wondering if there's anywhere besides MV to rent privately. We'd love to stay away from a hotel or resort, so we have a little privacy.

Thoughts anyone?

Thanks!

There are many rental villas on Orient but just not directly on the beach, some small amount of walking is required.

You can see from Ed & Sandra's panorama the hotels that are just back of the beach. These are basically the beachfront properties.

Is there any reason why Orient is your only other choice? Is it mandatory that you stay on the French side? There are some gorgeous places to stay along Simpson Bay Beach that would fit your bill. Check out some of the condos on Simpson Bay Beach and you may find what you are looking for...a place right on the water such as:

This link takes you to some very nice places that would give you what you are looking for.

That is an awesome photo-can't wait to get back there as the snow continues to fall.

FYI-the "Mystery Building" is now a sort of upscale beach bar/retaurant with beach chairs etc...

Palm Beach I believe.

Yes, it is Palm Beach and it has gotten very good reviews although anyone visiting there should be prepared for upscale offerings. For those who enjoy elegant, this is the one to go to.
