Excellent Family Vacation Home
We recently had the privilege of staying at Villa Sirenetta for a week with our 11 year old son. As the previous reviews have said, the house is beautiful, well appointed, and incredibly comfortable. We are from Atlanta, Georgia, and we need our air conditioning - and the AC at the Villa is fabulous for any concerned. We even had to cut it back as we were cold at times. Our son LOVED the pool and would spend every evening there for hours after we returned from the beach. If you have children, be sure to bring pool toys for throwing, etc. We had some spare glow sticks that we brought with us, and our son loved looking for those at night. However, be prepared to lose those pool toys as it is a steep drop behind the pool, and you likely won't recover them. We loved Smuggler's Cove so much that we ended up foregoing the other beaches. The snorkeling is good. We saw a gorgeous sea turtle, stingray, eel, baracuda, and lots of beautifully colored fish. It is close by, although we would highly recommend getting a 4 x 4 especially if you experience any rain during the week. Leanne was wonderful in helping us arrange a car with Jerry's, finding a photographer to take family photos, and aiding in any other questions we had about the island. We ordered groceries ahead of time, and it was delightful to have them all awaiting us at the house when we arrived. Getting from the airport to the ferry to the house could not have been easier, and both Jerry and Sylvia were delightful!! The power went out a couple of times, but with a quick call to Sylvia, it was back on in no time. I know Leanne has bought a generator and plans to install it at some point this year, so that should become a non-issue. But we were grateful to Sylvia for her immediate attention to any issues we had. She is fabulous!! This time of year, because its the low season, the Kuralu doesn't go out as often as there isn't demand. While we were disappointed that we didn't get to try it, we did take a fantastic day sail on the Aristocat and highly recommend it. Having a cocktail as Pusser's while watching the sun go down is lovely. The only time we truly had an issue with bugs biting at the beach was at Smuggler's Cove at sunset when we were having photos made. But they were never a problem during the day. Leanne has thoughtfully provided beach chairs and floats that you can take along with you to the beach. It was a wonderful trip! Many thanks to Leanne for sharing her lovely home!
