About our superior apartment #22...


Apartment 22 has some superior features to our usual accommodation.  It has all the usual amenities, but ALSO  has a double sofa bed, a larger refrigerator, WiFi, a flat screen high res TV and a library of 40 DVDs. It has a patio that opens out to gardens and a delightful valley/mountain view.

We try to provide everything that you might reasonably expect, and then some. So read what is here to minimize what you cram into your luggage.

Bathroom, soap, towels, toilet paper...

ALL studio apartments at Hotel Mont Vernon have a shower, (no bath). We provide liquid soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and 3 rolls of toilet paper per week. If you want more you can purchase them at the supermarket a mile away. We also provide two hand towels, two bath towels, two wash cloths plus two beach towels each week.  You can get towels more frequently if you arrange it in advance with Gloria at an extra laundry charge of $25.00 per change.

Beds, linens & laundry...

ALL apartments feature a KING SIZE bed. There is no sofa bed.  It is designed as a romantic retreat for a couple.  If there are three people, you need apt #9309 or #9310. Always tell us the number of adults and children so we can be sure we put you in the right apartment. The king bed is BIG and some couples sleep there with the kids.

A set of bedding is provided weekly and between guests. You can get changes more frequently if you arrange it in advance with Gloria at an extra laundry charge of $25.00


There is a small folding crib available upon request that is suitable for an infant with ONE set of bedding and a bumper. If you use the crib we recommend you bring your favorite bedding with you to be sure you have EXACTLY what you like. We don't provide any other baby equipment so you should bring with you everything you like to use.

Kitchenette, pots & pans...

The kitchenette comes with pots, pans, utensils, glasses, cutlery, a two burner stove top, refrigerator, toaster, microwave and coffee machine. There is also washing up liquid, dish cloths and a kitchen towel.

Lounge / TV area...

There is a seating area with a 20” flat screen TV, a DVD player, a radio / CD player and an assortment of tourist magazines about St Martin / St Maarten. The cable TV is controlled by French management of the complex. ALL apts have the same channels and, usually, only 4 or 5 are in English... one sport channel. Quality of reception and which channels are available varies. Consequently we provide 50+ DVDs and recommend that you bring your favorites with you.  There are dvd rental stores on the island.


The apartment is wired for WiFi and a LAN line.  There is also an Internet cafe on site where you can scan and print documents.


The apartment is equipped with a safe to secure your passports and valuables.


There is no landline phone in the room as we have no way of monitoring the cost of outgoing calls. Many guests come with their cell phones. Some work. Just in case your's doesn't, we can provide a French side cell phone, (if you ask for it). You just pay 5 euros to put credit on the phone. ( If you need more credit go to the Gess gas station on the way to Marigot or anywhere that sells Digical pre paid cards.) That allows your family to contact you if necessary or you to contact us if necessary.

If you lose the phone you pay $150. If you don't take it out of the apartment, you don't lose it!.

Incoming calls are FREE. Outgoing calls are around 40 cents a minute worldwide. The number of the phone will be written on the back of the phone.


220v 60Hz. The sockets are French, round 3 pin. There is a small 110 transformer in the room which will take American plugs but this is intended for phone and razor chargers and you can not run anything big on that. YOU CAN NOT RUN A 110v HAIRDRIER or high voltage 110 appliances like curling wands and heated hair rollers over 500w will just blow the fuses so if you need these things BE SURE THAT THEY ARE 220 volts. We provide a 220 hair drier.

Water on the French side is generally considered safe to drink but some people are sensitive to  any variation in the water they drink and pipes in any country can break and allow impurities in so we recommend you drink bottled water as a safeguard.

Balcony & dining...

There is a patio with a great view where a table and chairs can be used for dining if you wish.

The view...

The view from 9322 is delightful, looking across the valley to mountains. Apartments with sea views at Hotel Mont Vernon will either be more expensive (an extra $100-$800 a week dependent upon owner and time of year) or be finished to a lower standard.

We do not have the ocean view and so specialize in providing higher quality for less money. All apartments are a very short walk to the beach. Our guests are usually  happy to save the money, so that they can spend more while hanging out all day ON the beach.


You can't light BBQ on a condo balcony as smoke disturbs others and is a fire hazard. But there’s an old sailors trick that you can try on the beach. If you bring a flat metal grill with you, (takes no room in your suitcase, in fact it protects your other stuff),  then you can scoop a hole in the sand on the beach, fill with charcoal, light and just put the grill over the hole. It creates a BBQ to cook on. Great by moonlight.

Maid service...

We thoroughly clean the apartments between guests. Most of our guests are economy minded, but for those who desire daily or biweekly maid service we can connect you with a maid. She charges 20 Euro an hour and we take no percentage of that money.
