About the owner: I fell in love with the island on my first visit. I were hooked ever since! Favorite beach is by far Blue Beach. But every time I snorkel a new underwater landscape becomes my favorite!!
Why the Owner Chose Esperanza: The house is so comfortable for a great vacation. Almost any amenity you need. The house is close to everything. It is a very walkable area, but there are so many beautiful beaches to see...so a car is a must for at least part of the trip!!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Favorite moment in the morning is watching the wild horses head to the beach from the wrap around windows...favorite moment in the evening is watching the wild horses come back from the beach.
The kitchen is in the front of the house and is open to the dining and living area. It is a great gathering space. The back covered lanai with built in seating is great for afternoon reading and a nap!
