The Whim apartment description

At 'Sundowner' we offer a beautiful 2 bed apartment with infinity edge pool and incredible views.
In a unique position, overlooking the Caribbean, Sundowner enjoys stunning, uninterrupted views of sea, mountains and rain forest. You can swim or lounge around the pool or simply relax in the tropical gardens. The apartment is entirely self-contained and has a large west facing veranda, affording spectacular views of sunsets and bird-life.
Since we are atop a hill, nearly 1000 feet above sea level, we enjoy relatively cool breezes for most of the time, compared to the coastal areas. Also we have relatively few bugs and mosquitoes.
(You can view data from our own weather station at )
There are two attractive double bedrooms (with air-con), large bathroom (with American style washer and dryer) and 'Caribbean' themed lounge and dining areas - although most people prefer to eat 'al fresco' on the veranda.
The pool area also affords fantastic views. The pool itself is 16x20ft, perfect for a cooling dip and it also has an underwater seat along the infinity edge. If you need more in the way of exercise, there’s a jet that can be used to swim against and if you really want to work out we have some exercise equipment on the veranda.
The owners, Annie and Roger Williams, live on the property for much of the year and are on hand to answer your questions, give advice and assistance - as will Roseanne, our housekeeper and ‘Spice’, our resident gardener and handyman. ‘Spice’ can also give impromptu guided tours of the local rain forest.
We also have three friendly dogs, Daisy and Lizzie and young Spencer, plus Rosemary our cat. However, none of our pets are allowed in the apartment.
Although there's a large, well equipped kitchen, we do provide some starter items for your first morning.
We operate a strictly 'non-smoking' policy anywhere on the premises.
We do not consider the property as suitable for younger children (under 8 years) due to liability concerns relating to the steep terraced gardens and the unfenced infinity edge pool area. For exploring the northern part of the island and access to the property, the hire of a 4wd vehicle is strongly recommended. We can assist with this and also with meet and greet and airport pick-up included in the hire, through our recommended provider Taylors of Castara (web site: )
