We felt very safe and secure here with very well maintained grounds and a lovely beach and reef for snorkelling on your doorstep. We were delighted with the apartment the welcome package from Lisa was really useful and much appreciated, everything was clean and spacious and looked exactly like the photos. It was very quiet when we stayed which suited us as we had the pool and the beach to ourselves most days. The only thing that was disappointing was that the yacht club was closed during our stay and so there was no where to go on site for a drink or snack ,we will return to Windward which was great but will choose a time when the club is open.
