Our Dream Villa - Montserrat Breezes!
What a gorgeous and elegant villa!! Located at the end of a small road, it was extremely private, but was not so far off the main road that it was difficult to get to or out of the way. In fact, there were good restaurants (The Attic, Gourmet Gardens and Olveston House), hiking trails and a grocery store nearby. The listing description is excellent, everything was spotless and ready for our arrival just as the owner promised, and he was always willing to answer our questions promptly before our arrival. The property caretaker checked in with us a couple of times to be sure we didn't have any problems, and it was fun to run into him in different places on the island through the week. He always had a smile for us and treated us like long lost friends. The pictures posted above are gorgeous, but the villa is even more beautiful than shown. Most importantly, all the furniture was extremely clean and comfortable, perfect for reading, playing games or even watching TV. There is a large living room/dining room which overlooks the ocean through an entire wall of glass doors. The kitchen also overlooks the ocean, and has very pretty dishes for the guest's use - not cheap dishes intended for rentals. There are 5 large bedrooms w/ fans, each with private bathroom (and lots of towels), and each with an unbelievable view. Two of them have private balconies, and one of those has a pass-through window into the kitchen! One of the downstairs rooms also has its own outer sitting area overlooking the pool and beyond that, the view. The pool is large and a gorgeous blue, and has plenty of rafts and lounge chairs. It was wonderful to lie there and look up at the house, the perfectly manicured grounds and the view. We stayed there during a period of bad weather and we were able to stay out on the verandah through all of the rainstorms. The house is positioned perfectly because not once did we get wet and the rain never blew inside. We loved watching the storm clouds come at us from the ocean - it was amazing! The power went out a couple of times, but candles were available. We were happy to have a washer and dryer - they worked well, although the dryer didn't seem to shut off - I don't recommend going out for the day with the dryer on. There are a ping pong table and grill in the garage. We also appreciated the little extra touches like fresh flowers in the rooms. ABSOLUTE RECOMMENDATION WITHOUT RESERVATION! We can't praise Montserrat Breezes enough!
