A VACATION TO REMEMBER!!!!!!
FIRST OF ALL I WANT TO THANK SHERRY FOR ALL HELP WITH PLANNING OUR VACATION GETAWAY. WE LITERALLY TALKED OVER AN HOUR THE FIRST NIGHT I CONTACTED HER. SO EASY TO TALK TO, FRIENDLY AND PROFESSIONAL. HER DEDICATION, ADVICE AND CONFIDENCE IN THE THIS PROPERTY MADE IT AN EASY DECISION TO BOOK THIS RENTAL. THAT BEING SAID, I'M SO GLAD WE DID. THIS WAS A CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR OUR 4 CHILDREN, AGES 19-23, AND OF COURSE THAT IN ITSELF WAS STRESSFUL ENOUGH TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE HAD A GREAT TIME. I CAN'T EXPRESS THE SATISFACTION OR RELIEF I FELT WITH EVERYONES REACTION WHEN WE ARRIVED. THE SOUND OF THE SEA WILL FOREVER BE EMBEDDED IN OUR MEMORIES. WE ARRIVED AFTER DARK SO THE SOUND WAS AMAZING. AFTER A COMFORTABLE NIGHTS SLEEP, WE MADE A POT OF COFFEE AND WATCHED THE BEAUTIFUL SUNRISE OUT BY THE POOL. AS THE PELICANS WERE DIVING FOR THEIR BREAKFAST, GECKOS PLAYING IN THE GRASS, AND COQUI SINGING IN THE BACKGROUND, WE SAT THERE TOTALLY TAKEN ABACK BY THE VEIW. AFTER WALKING TO THE LOCAL BAKERY(JOCKEY)AND HAVING BREAKFAST POOLSIDE, WE VENTURED OUT ONTO THE BEACH LINED WITH COCONUT PALMS AND WERE EXILERATED BY THE VEIW AND THE ROARING SOUND OF THE WAVES. THE BEACH WAS SANDY IN FRONT OF THE HOUSE AND ALSO HAD AREAS WHERE ROCKS AND SHELLS HAD BEEN DEPOSITED A SHORT WALK AWAY. THERE WERE ALSO REEFS CLOSE TO SHORE WHICH WERE FULL OF SEA CREATURES, ESPECIALLY THE REEFS AROUND THE BEND TOWARD THE EAST. DEFINATELY WORTH CHECKING THESE OUT, I COULD LITERALLY STAND IN THE WATER AND SEE THESE WITHOUT ANY SNORKELING GEAR. MAKE SURE TO BRING YOUR SWIM SHOES AS IT WILL MAKE WALKING EASIER, AND YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT IS OUT THERE. WE SEEN A GIGANTIC TURTLE RETURNING TO THE SEA, AND OF COURSE NO ONE HAD A CAMERA HANDY AS WE WERE SWIMMING, BUT NONE THE LESS, STILL AN AMAZING SIGHT TO SEE. IRENE AND THE FISHERMAN BROUGHT US A SELECTION OF FRESH FISH ONE DAY AND WE BOUGHT SOME SNAPPER AND CRAB. WE ARE NOT EXPERIENCED WITH PREPARING THEM SO IT WAS AMUSING TO SEE MY HUBBY GOOGLE FISH PREPERATION TECHNIQUES. WE FINALLY JUST WRAPPED THEM IN FOIL WITH BUTTER AND SEASONING AND COOKED THEM ON THE GRILL(AFTER REMOVING THE HEADS AND FINS) THEY HAD BEEN CLEANED ALREADY. THEY TURNED OUT UNBELIEVABLE, WE WERE ABLE TO LIFT THE BONES RIGHT OUT AND IF OUR KIDS THAT DON'T TYPICALLY LIKE FISH ATE THEM I THINK THAT SPEAKS VOLUMES. THERE WAS A LOBSTER POT IN THE KITCHEN AND WE WERE ABLE TO FIX THE CRABS ON THE STOVE TOP, ONCE AGAIN, YUMMY!!! DON'T MISS THIS PARADISE ON THE BEACH, WE'D RETURN IN A HEARTBEAT!!
Families with Teenagers,
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: Loved reading this review. It was special to me. What I did not realize when I started renting was what a positive impact this would have on our little fishing village. That fisherman has 3 children and one on the way. He fishes every morning before dawn for my 5 houses. He loves his job and is so grateful to you my guests as this provides for his family with the sale of his catch. We spend so little on this fish and yet it gives him that income he could not provide otherwise. The same with the baker down the street. The pastries are the best I have ever had. Made fresh everyday. Again it's you my guests who are helping provide for a local family. It's a win win win...You my guests, my staff and local vendors, and me with happy everyone :) With an experience you just can not get in the big tourist areas. My guest are treated with respect and very much appreciated by us all. Thank you so much for the wonderful review Dee. So happy you enjoyed our very special piece of paradise.
