We started our stay off on a slightly bad note as I had spoken to the home owner about our arrangements to get to the house. My husband is from St. Vincent so I felt we didn’t need transport. It was agreed that we would just be escorted but a cab driver still turned up at the airport and insisted on charging us for the journey he had to make. The property manager had no idea about my discussions with the home owner and I had to go through my emails etc to prove what I was saying was true. Not great when you’ve been travelling for a day and just want to relax. He did provide some water, butter and bread for us though which was a nice thought.
The house is spacious and very family friendly (4 kids and 3 adults) as it has a dining area and a table in the kitchen too which meant that we could have dinner together. The main living area is one big open space which the children could play in or watch TV but unfortunately unlike the bedrooms there wasn’t any air conditioning which meant that it got very warm in the sitting room/dining area and the fans didn’t work properly. The main living area was also a little dark compared to the rest of the house, as it’s quite a large space it was hard to get enough lighting, especially during the evenings. Lamps and the like were provided but some of the sockets were faulty so we left them alone.
The outdoor space is very nice to relax in during the evenings, just take some mosquito coils or citronella sticks. There are a lot of locks/padlocks all around the house (which I understand) but we weren’t given the keys to certain doors which kind of ruined the point of having them. We had French doors in the master bedroom which led onto the back veranda but couldn’t use them as they were locked. We did manage to pick a few fruits and the children loved the outdoor space.
Overall this is a nice property to stay in as there is more than enough space for everyone to have some quiet time alone but also family time together. The kitchen is big and well equipped and we enjoyed preparing meals together. The property just needs a little updating here and there (especially the light and power sockets). I would recommend hiring a car if you can as it was easier for us to get around and the property is in a good location. Not too far from Kingstown and there are two beaches within a 10 minute drive.
Thanks for having us.
