"This cottage is absolutely perfect! Let me start by saying, if you don't know exactly where to turn, you would never find this gem, it's well hidden at the end of a mile long driveway! The last half mile up to the house has beautiful landscaping on both sides of the drive, orchids on the trees, pineapples, mango trees, and on and on! The owner's retirement house is right next to the cottage, but he will be absent from his house during your stay at your request. He and his property manager will take care of every last detail from picking you up at the airport, to buying groceries for you, to giving all kinds of helpful info about the house and the island. The house itself is a very well built 450 square foot bungalow. Basically just one open space, and a bathroom. (I never used the inside shower because the shower on the outside, back of the house is awesome!!) it has a screened front porch that is perfect for an evening meal. There is a large flat screen tv with satellite service which works great, there was no DVD player when we were there, but we didn't really care, didn't need it! The beach is completely secluded from all access other than by coming in from the ocean. It's a short walk down a fifty foot concrete stair way. The beach itself is kind of rocky and small, (I'm sure that changes with the seasons), but that didn't matter much to us because the water is amazing! The snorkeling and kayaking are fantastic! I snorkeled all the way around both sides of the cove where the water became deeper and felt like the coral and fish were plentiful and beautiful! Saw two, four foot wide stingrays, found 70 sand dollars, a small nurse shark, sunbathed in our birthday suites and on and on!!
THIS PLACE IS PARADISE!!!"
