Close to many activities, yet quiet location
Loved the location of this condo and not a bad view from ground floor patio either. For Scuba Divers like my husband and I it was the perfect place. Diving at the back of the property. Our favorite bar, Macabuca, just a short drive up the road. Near grocery stores, activities for the kids like the turtle petting farm and "swim with dolphins" place and several great restaurants. Not far from Seven Mile beach either. Almost every night we parked at Governor's beach and walked several miles under the stars, past all the pretty hotels on one side and the gently shooshing surf on the other, stopping in at a bar here and there. In the day it was diving, diving, diving, often at Macabuca (yup, dive, then get out and you are right there for a beer and a yummy lunch (everything there is of high quality ingredients, sold, to my mind, so cheap I don't know how they make money).
We drove around the island one day and frankly I think this is the side of the island to be on. If you want to get away from the crowds, drive away. If you want to be amidst all the restaurants and amenities, your close to them. If you want a quiet nights sleep, you'll get it at this condo. The decor isn't high end Ritz-Carlton, but it isn't bad either. The master bedroom is large with a working ac in it. My only complaint there was that the fitted sheets originally put on the king bed kept slipping up and off the ends, these should be thrown out, they just don't work any more. But we went into the closet and put a different pair on, voila, sheets that stayed on.
If I'd had kids I might have been a little unsure of that second room. It DOES have it's own bathroom, just like the master bedroom does, but the ac in there was iffy, and the room cramped with a small double bed plus a set of bunk beds. Ok for uncomplaining, adventurous kids, not so much for the "gotta have it perfect" type.
Loved the kitchen, it is good sized, bright and airy and open to the small living room, looking straight out the glass door to patio beyond. From inside the condo there is no view out the window. If you are looking for someplace to step in and take your breath away, this isn't it. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable place, with a price tag that will allow you to be out and about spending your money where you should be, at activities and restaurants, and yet a place you will like coming back to at night for a good rest, a handy kitchen, and a nice patio view, this is it.
Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. It is sometimes through this process that we learn that we have a misbehaving appliance. We had the AC unit in the 2nd bedroom serviced and all is now working as it should. We have also replaced those slippery sheets that kept popping off the corners of the mattress (they were really pretty but apparently just not functional). We work hard at making our condo an enjoyable place for our guests to stay. Clean, stocked, TV, fully a/c’d, fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer IN UNIT, great view, very comfy, free WiFi.
Hope to see you back in the future!
