Outstanding location – complete accommodations
Just returned from a week in Studio Pearl and was very impressed by the rental and the location. Greg, the local caretaker/concierge, handled all of our requests and the recently upgraded apartment was an excellent choice for our needs. We took the option of having a rental car combined with the lodging – and it worked beautifully. Very nice to have it waiting upon arrival and an easy return as well. Having the car allowed us the chance to explore the island much more than our previous two visits, although the apartment is so perfectly located that we really could have spent the entire trip within just walking distance. Loved the deck – the compact kitchen – the amenities (including a washing machine and dishwasher). Especially appreciated the dual air conditioning units. Can’t wait to return.

Wonderful Vacation!
We recently stayed 9 awesome nights in this unit in Orient Bay. I can’t say enough about how convenient it is as it looks right out into the village square. The unit is nicely appointed and very well maintained. We had several people ask us if it was noisy as it sits over top of a convenience store, but we were never bothered with noise. My husband and I are both used to keeping our house very cool so the fact that this unit had 2 air conditioning units (one up and one down) was a huge plus for us. We did the rental car package which was amazing. We were met at the airport with a car ready for us, and all we had to do when we left was leave the car in the airport parking lot with the keys in it (the guy that met us there when we arrived was at the airport waiting for us when we left so we ended up handing over the keys to him). I absolutely recommend going this route. It was just so easy. We spent our days on the beach and then hit GP’s Kakao bar for some cocktails. GP is a great guy and bartender so everyone should stop by and see him:). This was our 3rd extended stay at Orient Bay, and we are already planning another trip in March. I can’t wait to get back there!

My boyfriend and I stayed at this place for a week in September, and could not have been happier. The place was exactly like the pictures on the website, and was clean with all amenities you really needed throughout the week. The location was perfect– close to the ocean (can see from balcony), across from restaurants, and had a grocery store right underneath us which had everything we needed to make breakfast every morning. Nelly was extremely helpful! As was the people who greeted us at the airport with our car and picked us up to return the car before we left. We would absolutely return to this place no doubt.

Fun in the Sun
Stayed in January 2015 — We spent a week at the Pearl of the Orient in January. It was our 2nd stay there. Greg and Nelly were very friendly and helpful with anything we needed. We look forward to returning soon. The apartment is in an excellent location, in the center of town and almost on the the beach. There are many great restaurants and shops all within 200 yards of the apartment. The apartment was very clean, modern and has a very good atmosphere. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to cook with. The bedroom upstairs was quiet and the bed very comfortable. The stairs to get up there were fairly steep but didn’t present a problem for us. The balcony in front overlooks the town square with many restaurants. It was especially beautiful at night when the area is lit up with lights. On Tuesday night they had live music we could hear from the balcony. We enjoyed the beaches, swimming and diving, plenty of water activities are available. I would recommend a car to get around to see the rest of the island. There are many other beautiful beaches on the island. We really enjoyed our stay and the Pearl is highly recommended.
