She lives in the Orient Bay area and will be happy to assist you during your stay if you’d need any help.

More about Location

The Ametys apartment is located in a small residential complex of some 15 two-story townhouses within the gated community of Orient Bay, also called “Orient Bay Resort” or “Orient Village”. This residence is behind the Palm Court hotel, for those who already know the area – near the main 1st roundabout on the beach access road in Orient Village.

Orient Bay is on the Northeastern coast of French St. Martin and is the best serviced and most popular beach on the island. It is a 2+ mile white sand beach lined with beach bars, restaurants and water sports. 
A pathway at the Ametys townhouse complex takes you to Orient Beach, and ends at La Playa or Waikiki Beach (50-80 meters walk). Kakao Beach on Orient Bay, where you can enjoy the free use of beach chairs, is located a bit further south on Orient Bay, some 200-300 meters from Ametys.

Superbe vacance chez Delphine Richard
Notre séjour de 3 semaines durant le temps des fêtes fut des plus agréable. La propriétaire nous a accueilli chaleureusement dans un condo tout à fait propre, beau et rempli de soleil! Rénové avec goût, nous avons passé un séjour très agréable. Le ménage deux fois par semaine, quand nous sommes en vacances, c’est une superbe gâterie. Bien situé, à distance de marche de la plage et d’une petite épicerie fine, cette location en vaut vraiment la peine! La cuisine est bien équipée, les douches sont parfaites et les lits confortables. Nous serons surement de retour en 2017! Merci encore Delphine pour ta présence et tes bons petits soins. xoxox Marie, Yves et Isa

Great apartment in a great location
We loved our stay in Orient Bay. Delphine was so nice and accommodating. The apartment is very nicely decorated and has just about everything you need. The location is a short walk from the beach and restaurants. We very much enjoyed our stay and will be back again.

Beautiful place and great owner!
One of the best experiences I have ever had renting a condo! I the owner was amazing, our bags were lost by the airline and the owner met them at the condo when they were delivered so that we didnt have to sit at the condo and wait and waste a day on vacation! Beautiful condo that is exceptionally clean and accommodating! Thanks so much for an amazing vacation!

Wonderful location. Wonderfully equipped. Very short walk to the shops/grocery in Orient Village and a short walk to the beach. Everything was clean and well appointed. It looks just like the pictures. The owner was very helpful and gracious! Great deal for the price!!

La location idéale !
Cet appartement est l’endroit rêvé pour un séjour à St Martin ! Tout est très propre, l’appartement est extrêmement agréable à vivre, spacieux et la déco très sympa. Ce n’est pas “conforme” aux photos ; c’est mieux encore ! Delphine notre hôte a été très accueillante et réactive à la moindre question, on ne parle même pas de toutes les adorables attentions réservées à notre fils de 20 mois… La localisation est vraiment idéale, au sein du quartier le plus sympa de l’île où l’on se sent complètement en sécurité partout, et surtout, surtout… on peut tout faire à pieds ! Plage, bars, restos, supermarchés, tout est accessible en 5 minutes, le paradis ! Inutile de préciser que nous recommandons vivement cette location, et espérons bien avoir la chance d’y retourner.

L’appartement idéal !
Nous rentrons très satisfaits de notre semaine à Orient Bay dans l’appartement de Delphine, et n’avons qu’une hâte ; y retourner ! L’appartement est parfait, comme sur les photos et même mieux. Tout y est agréable, très propre. Le ménage fait deux fois durant la semaine était au top et notre hôte très accueillante. Nous ne parlons même pas de toutes les adorables attentions réservées à notre fils de 20 mois… L’appartement est entièrement climatisé, nous n’avons pas eu une seule piqûre de moustique durant toute la semaine, même sans anti-moustique : un exploit dans les Antilles ! La localisation est idéale, dans le quartier le plus sympa de toute l’île, et surtout, surtout… on peut tout faire à pieds ! Plage, restos, supermarché… tout est accessible à pied en moins de 5 minutes, que demander de mieux ? De plus on se sent extrêmement en sécurité dans tout le quartier. Nous recommandons bien sûr vivement cette location !

We loved it!
My family and I just came home from a wonderful vacation in Orient Bay. This condo was a perfect place for us. It has a great location right around the corner from the village and the beach. The condo is renovated beautifully with high end appliances (dishwasher/stove/washing machine, etc), and the owner did a lovely job decorating it. It was like stepping into a cool, soothing oasis after the heat and vibrant colors of St Martin. The beds were comfortable, the layout was great, and the owner was wonderful and responsive. We would be thrilled to come back and stay here again!

Best quality/price on Orient Bay
This villa is owned by very meticulous and detail oriented owners. You will find everything you need from hairdryers to adaptors, soap for bath and dishwashing liquid. It is very comfortable and exceptionally clean ! It has a master bed with full bath as well as a second floor bedroom with full bath and a loft. This was perfect for my husband and I as well as our two teenagers. It is few feet from the amazing orient bay beach! I strongly recommend this condo.It is the best quality price ratio you will find on Orient Beach…Take it from someone who has returned more than 10 times!!! Thanks Delphine!

Better than expected!
We travel a lot and used to book villas or condos via Homeaway in different countries. To date, it was the best experience from all points of view. Condo looks exactly as presented and described on the web. Very spacious, clean, well equipped, new and modern. Excellent location, walking distance to the touristic village with good choice restaurants and cafes, beautiful beach, little fairly supermarket etc.. Thanks a lot to the owner Delphine Richard, she is fantastic manager and hostess! … booking process was easy and convenient, she was always there to answer our questions and to guide us prior and after arrival; .. also to inform us about the activities on the island and making sure we are satisfied and comfortable… Would love to go back!! That condo became our first choice when coming to St Martin:)

Propreté 5 étoiles
Chère Madame , C’est très volontiers que je viens vous apporter mon appréciation sur ce séjour de ” rêve ” passé dans votre appartement situé dans la baie orientale à Saint Martin . Nous étions 3 personnes qui ne peuvent que louer les prestations haut de gamme que vous avez réalisé dans cet appartement , dans lequel vous avons ressenti à chaque instant la ” touche ” apportée par la propriétaire des lieux . A l’équipement parfait de l’appartement , s’ajoute sa situation idéale . En effet , un chemin piétonnier d’environ à peine 100 m nous a permis de nous rendre sur cette si belle plage de la baie orientale . Nous n’avons qu’un seul souhait , c’est celui de pouvoir revenir dans ce coin de ” Paradis ” que vous avez crée . Encore mille mercis de la part d’ Annie , Michel et Jean Pierre .

Great location – layout suits families or couples
Great location, very clean and well equipped condo. Owner was extremely helpful and gracious!! Highly recommended. Pictures are very accurate only item we were unaware is the only toilet is downstairs in a separate room not attached to either of the bathroom shower areas. (Perhaps common in the area-but not in US). Walking distance to many nice restaurants, bars and beach. Highly recommend.
