“Fabulous waterside location”

We have now visited the property twice and had two really great holidays. By our second visit, further investment in the terrace/pool and covered outside space had improved the property further. The accessibility to water is great with the property sitting comfortably inside the harbour but without having to negotiate the congestion of the inner harbour. The property is well appointed and seemed to keep cool during the day with the added bonus of the additional under cover outside space that is perfect in the late afternoon and for shading our daughter in the pool for a large part of the day.

We stayed at Hector's house with friends in November on a 'babymoon'
The house was stunning, beautifully decorated. Large spacious bedrooms with ensuite facilities. The kitchen was large and very well equipped with everything you would need. The pool and outside area were fantastic with a good BBQ area that we used regularly. The views of the harbour were amazing and we enjoyed sitting watching the different sailing boats coming in.
The location of the house was brilliant and with the golf buggy had brilliant access to the fantastic beaches, supermarket and restaurants within jolly harbour.
We also had a lovely morning out at sea with 'captain bob' on the fantastic boat available.
Through the rental company we had good communication throughout are stay and they made sure all our needs were met.
We all had an amazing holiday and would thoroughly recommend it for family's, groups of friends or couples.

“Christmas and New Year with family”
Reviewed 10 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We had a wonderful stay in Hector's House this past holiday season.
Although far from luxurious the home is well laid out and accommodate our family of 9 very easily. Especially wonderful was that the beach was just a golf cart ride away!
The owner was terrific but his rental agent was dreadful...Definitely put a damper on a perfectly lovely 14 day vacation.

Thank you for sending you thoughts on The Beautiful hectars House Located on Harbour Island in Jolly Harbour.
I have to disagree when you say it is not luxurious.....Hectars is a beautiful, Luxurious home ( you cannot compare it to a Beach front Home type Luxurious ) The home has a very African theme throughout the property. beautiful wall prints, spaciousness and pleasantly appointed.
With a recently new and extended outside gallery/ deck non slip tiles, a new half roof, so when the the afternoon sun is at its hottest, you have the choice to be in the sun or shade to dine, laze or bathe.
Finally, i have to mention that while on island this property was viewed by the guest before there arrival at Christmas.

Kind Regards
Margot Managing Director....( rental Agent ! )

Thank you for sending your review of Hectars House, we are so sorry that you found the house dissapointing.
1. We are in agreement that the Kitchen could benefit from some additional pots & pans for larger groups staying.Other than mentioned we feel the kitchen has more than generous amounts of dining ware, glasses, cutlery and appliances.
2. The furniture is the owners choice...has never been commented on or been an issue by guests before... The sofas and cushions are in keeping with the African theme throughout the property.
3. Internet will be in the House by April.The Crows nest, our office, The commercial center all have wifi that you can use.
3. Pads for the new sun loungers will be at the house at the end of March.
4. Unfortunatly cell phones do not last for ever, and it will be replaced.
5. It was unfortunate that the bikes were not fixed and working fine the first time, as was the cart, but i believe they were then no problem.
6. The plug ( Drain ) for the jaccuzi bath is on the side of the bath tub.

We will pass on all your comments.

Kind regards
