Our family of 6 adults and one 11-year-old stayed at Date House for a week over Thanksgiving. The location between Castries and Rodney Bay was convenient. The house is situated in a neighborhood just above the Calabash Cove resort. We paid for a transfer to and from the airport and are very glad we did. The house would have been difficult to find on our own as there are no street signs. But once we had driven on our own from the house, we didn't have any difficulties finding our way back, plus the owner provided a map with simple directions to the house and that was useful. Accommodations at the house were just fine for our family. The neighborhood is quiet and the views are amazing. The bedrooms all had air conditioning. The pool, house and surroundings were very clean. Anne Marie, the housekeeper, was delightful and stayed late to make sure we had a tour of the house. Because we arrived later in the day, we had requested groceries be purchased for the house and that was all taken care of, including a complimentary rum punch to welcome us. We did encounter one issue on the last night of our stay. The main electrical circuit breaker went out and we lost power. The response from the rental agency was not immediate, but we were able to get the power back on ourselves by unplugging things to reduce the electrical load. The owner and rental agency made arrangements for repairs the next day, so this should not be a problem for future renters. Having a rental car is definitely necessary if you are going to see the sights of the island or go to a beach (we recommend the beach at Pigeon Island). One caution is that the road to the property is not well kept, so plan accordingly. We rented a van, so that was appropriate. The villa rental agency representative was very accommodating in helping us book a catamaran cruise and a day of zip lining, and we were picked up at Calabash Cove by both companies. Overall the property is wonderful and we would recommend it.
