Property was as advertised. A few things that needed to be touched up but didn't interfere with overall function. We did not rent a car and made out quite well for 2 weeks using taxis as our transportation. Would probably be easier if you had a car as the hills are steep - going down was easy, back up not as easy especially for seniors. Marie was very personable and helpful with suggestions on places to go and arranging taxis for us. One thing that could be added to the unit is a free standing fan that could be moved where needed for those who mind the heat, which we did suggest.
A short walk to the beach and restaurants, a longer one to the grocery store. Property pool looked very nice but we did not use it. Anyone staying here should have a great vacation.
We had a lovely stay at Tessa and John's villa. It had literally everything that we could have needed for our visit - clearly it's a much loved home as well as a holiday let. Everything provided was of good quality: it was just a pleasant place to be. It was peaceful (except the tree frogs!), but close enough to the centre of everything: we could be at the shops/restaurants in 5 minutes by golf cart, but also it was 5 minutes' walk to the beach/Castaways (NB you don't have to pay for beach chairs - just say you're staying at the villa - and it's $10 US for the day for an umbrella).
Tessa was really helpful in booking us taxis from the airport, showing us around the house, and left us the basics to get us started. They also arranged for a golf cart to be waiting at the villa for us when we arrived.
Jenny looks after the house when the owners aren't there, and she is lovely and super-helpful. We had one issue that couldn't be resolved (honestly, not for want of trying by anyone involved) which didn't hugely inconvenience us. Jenny was brilliant at keeping us informed and was so sweet and apologetic. We appreciated the bottle of bubbly to say sorry for the small inconvenience. Jenny also found us the perfect excursion (Creole Cruises, highly recommended!) and had everything booked and arranged for us.
We'd very much recommend this lovely house to all, and thanks so much to Tessa and John for letting us stay.
