We have just returned from Cactus and can honestly say it is the most spectacular property we have ever stayed in. The views are implausibly beautiful, the house is immaculate and the location could not be better.
Private airport transfers were included (another thing not having to worry about in a foreign country) then Hazel the local property manager was there to greet us and made herself available 24/7, but maintained a discreet distance during our stay. Service and staff could not have been better.
The house is beautifully decorated and furnished. Inside is the nicest, most luxurious villa you could wish for. Dazzlingly clean, it has a comprehensively equipped kitchen, four large bedrooms with three having direct views over the infinity pool to the ocean.
Cactus is situated on a hillside overlooking the Caribbean Sea, but only a few minutes’ walk from some of the best beaches we have ever experienced ANYWHERE – we reckon the lovely unspoilt Valley Church Beach as being the best and only just across the road. The house setting is very private and peaceful having a panoramic view over Jolly Harbour. Every morning waking up in this private paradise seemed like a continuing dream, the views are simply that dazzling.
It is an easy walk to Jolly Harbour’s centre and its many restaurants. Apart from their food (all were excellent) we would recommend Melinis for atmosphere, Al Porto for harbor-side setting and Miracles for authentic Caribbean cooking.
On the first floor there is a jumbo sized pool deck which incorporates a poolside shower room / toilet. The infinity pool was claimed to be the largest in the area, and is fitted lighting controls so you can set up a nighttime show.
Upstairs we found a mega lounging area and a comprehensive equipped kitchen, both opening to a vast outdoor living area divided between the shady lounge/ dining veranda and a sunny BBQ veranda. It was bliss with the natural breeze but also had electric blinds if too windy - the outdoor sofas were so comfortable we spent most evenings here with chilled wine to hand, simply watching the sun slowly set over the distant Monserrat volcano .
We have rented many private Villas over the world, but without doubt this most luxurious property easily beats the lot – yes trust us, it is exceptional in every respect, nothing to fault and simply stunning.
Thank you Roger!
