Beautiful, relaxing stay

Spent an awesome, relaxing week and highly recommend this place to others looking for a private getaway, avoiding the resort scene. The grounds are well maintained, with fresh fruit picked from trees outside your window. Stayed in the Windsor suite which was clean, spacious, quiet, with an awesome view the bay, and sailboats and yachts coming and going. Cyrus, the manager, was super nice, friendly, knowledgeable and available as a helpful guide. We engaged him to bring us shopping, local food stands, the volcano, botanical gardens, beaches and snorkeling from the shore. He picked good locations and timed visits according to the weather and to avoid busy, large crowds. It was our first time off resort and we enjoyed going beyond the "all-inclusive bubble", eg met more local people, ate local food, and cooked meals in suite. Only minor suggestion: wifi could be stronger. The website photos/description and other reviews are accurate. Like most of the island, it's hilly, so there's a short walk on an incline to the shops, restaurants and beach below. We would visit again!
