From the moment we booked until the time we departed, the Luxury Retreats team was extremely courteous and helpful. This was our first experience with the added concierge component and it certainly won't be our last. The home was gorgeous, and the owner Irene even called to check up on us. Views were all breathtaking and the foliage around the home was beautiful. We had a great time relaxing on the deck, just watching the sea birds, ferries and yachts and enjoying the pool. Smuggler's Cove is a convenient short drive away. We highly recommend this home!
