We stayed at this beautiful apartment for 10 days in March.
It was lovely, Diana the owner had thought of everything.It was spotlessly clean, the beds were comfortable and it had everything we needed.
The apartment is part of a Villa which is completely self contained, it is on the ground floor with its own private entrance and garden which is very secluded. The pool is shared with the owner, but that is not a problem as we had it to our selves a lot of the time The apartment is only a few minutes walk to Bottom Bay which is beautiful.
We hired a car for part of our stay, which we think is essential for shopping and seeing other parts of the Island, although the maps are useless and the road signs are non existent on the east coast,( much better on the west coast) throw the map away and buy a compass instead!
The weather was glorious and we had the most amazing time, we spent a lot of time in the garden with Duke, Diana's adorable dog, he's a gentle giant and a real softie. We loved the apartment and would recomend it to anyone.
Thank you Diana and Duke for sharing your lovely home with us
We arrived at the house (got lost first since we found the directions a little confusing) and was met by Jan who provided us with a tour and the keys. She also had done a very small grocery list for us (submitted in advance) so we didn't have to immediately run to the grocery story. The house is large and we were pleased to find the pictures actually reflected the property accurately. The only exception was the beach which looked like we were on the water but in fact is a two minute walk away. Sitting on the large covered deck we thoroughly enjoyed the breeze off the ocean which you can see easily. The walk to the beach (not for swimming) is a public access walkway so there is always someone going by. This is NOT a problem though since there is a full privacy fence. The house itself is a good size, beds are very comfortable and the pool is a nice size.
The a kitchen is huge. It is well equipped with everything you need. A couple of small issues. The toaster was terrible and you had to fight to pop up the bread. We ended up buying a new toaster which we left there as a donation. Another issue was the oven which wasn't giving much heat. A quick call to Jan and she arranged to have that fixed the next day. Last issue - All the cutting knives really need to be sharpened. We have already mentioned this to Jan so will assume she will take care of it.
During the month's stay, we had the house cleaned three times and the pool and yard work done twice. All was done with minimal intrusion and the people were super polite and friendly.
As for location, it is isolated from shops and services. Tourist areas are on the other side of the island. We knew this going in so am not complaining. However if you are not renting a car, your only option it to take a taxi. The taxi's will range anywhere from $50.00 to $80.00 local currency to get anywhere but it does save you from driving on the left side of the road if you are not comfortable doing that.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it. If you want somewhere quiet this place is excellent.
