The villa is perfectly situated for snorkeling on one side and sandy beach leisure on the other side. The best part of the villa truly is the location. We were in a gated community and away from all of the tourist congestion. We enjoyed the patio every morning and evening. You can get anywhere on the shuttle buses and it's much cheaper than taking a cab or renting a car. Please note that a lot of food is imported so it's a bit more costly than we were accustomed to - I recommend cooking as eating out can start to add up. There are several nice restaurants within walking distance. We enjoyed taking a tour of the island using the shuttle buses. The locals were extremely friendly and more than happy to share information about their island. We were also able to rent jet skis via phone and have them delivered to us on the beach right by our villa! The only downside to our trip was an incident with housekeeping toward the end of our stay which we addressed with Jefferson and he handled without incident. The inside of the villa was quaint and comfortable. We would have preferred newer, clean linen and an iron (the iron was rusted and not working) - we brought this to Jefferson's attention and he indicated he'd have this replaced. The villa pics are as advertised, however, the views in the pictures don't do them justice - definitely breathtaking. We plan on renting this unit again when we return.
We stayed with family and friends for one week. The setting is beautiful with access to 2 pools and sandy beaches. The town-house has an outstanding view and ocean-side private patio.
The kitchen is well equipped with dishes and high- end cookware. There is no dishwasher
( as shown in some pictures) but there is a washing machine and dryer.
The overall appearance of the house is tired, especially the main living area. Some of the cabinets are broken, as was the latch on the patio door.
Although we were charged for extra people, one of the beds was un-sleepable and another suitable only for children. Most of the bedding was thin and worn and the pillows were flat as pancakes.
The unit was booked by a friend and she was happy with the owners prompt responses to questions. He was approachable, and available by phone during our stay.
