"Our group of six just returned from this villa. We had a nice time and enjoyed the island. The listing states 30 acres but I believe this is shared with the house next door 7 palms which you can see from the back patio. Pluses, very private beach with palapa providing shade, turquoise water and white sugar sandy beach very few beach goers so very quiet and private. 15 minutes from governors harbor and 5 minutes from tippys and the back porch. A little older feeling. Our main issues were the floor plan. All three bedrooms were outside the living room/dining room. Even more awkward was the kitchen was separate from dining room, a separate building so you had to open and close, due to mosquitoes, two doors coming and going to dining room, hard with plates in your hand. Dining is very expensive and something as Common as a fish sandwich can cost $20 or more at the local restaurants. We had planned on cooking. The kitchen was poor. Oven was worthless as the temperature was not accurate,but worse were the preponderance of flys, hundreds maybe thousands when food was being prepared. Our harbor island house we stayed in did not have this problem. We gave up and ate out every lunch and dinner. Lots of sand flys, mosquito bites etc , but that's the tropics. Great place to get away with gorgeous beach but don't think about cooking real meals
Ps fly all the way from Malibu ca for pristine beach and privacy and on the morning of our third day a wedding planner walks through the villa, unannounced, to the back patio were we were having coffee. She wanted to meet clients and tour the property, and we had people still sleeping ! After agreeing to come back after we leave the next day , I go for a run on the beach. When I get back she and two people are wondering around the back yard and continue to do so for 20 minutes. My kids and wife say the future groom stormed into the back yard , enraged we wouldn't give them access to our leased villa. All In , the wedding planner sat in our living room For 20 minutes on her phone, supposedly cancelling meeting, then walked around for another 20 minutes. If you value and are willing to pay for privacy like us, you should address this with management prior to renting."

"I can't say enough good things about this house. The location is perfect, with easy access to a beautiful cove and right next door to The Cove Hotel if you want to take advantage of their restaurants, beach, etc. Not that you ever have to leave Tequila Sunset though. I just returned from a family vacation where 6 of us stayed at the house and enjoyed the spectacular views, sunsets, swimming, and house amenities. We really enjoyed having the kayaks and snorkeling gear at our disposal, and the house was extremely clean upon arrival with fresh-smelling sheets on the bed. Everything you could want in order to cook a meal is there - including a gas grill and the all-important blender for pina coladas. Wallace and Rena are responsive and a pleasure to deal with. Simply a perfect house rental and I hope to return!"

"Excellent lodging, great views, beautiful grounds, fantastic location! Ms. Jean was such an elegant lady and gracious host and full of information and historic tales. I would recommend to anyone! We loved it. We spent the last 4 days of an 11 day trip to the Bahamas and wished we had spent them all at this location. Don't miss the Friday night fish fry, and the bakery with fresh breads and sweets only a 2 block walk."
