"We just returned from an outstanding getaway at Bahama Villa. We stayed 6 nights, which wasn't nearly enough time. We wish we could stay here forever! I guess that means we will have to come back :) We visited many different beaches and explored many side roads, and Ten Bay was our favorite spot. We loved waking up in the morning to the waves crashing against the cove underneath the house, and watching the fish from the balcony in the morning with our cup of coffee. The villa is tastefully decorated and the kitchen has everything you could need to cook a nice meal. There were plenty of towels for our stay in the linen closet. A/C worked great. DEFINITELY BRING LOTS OF BUG SPRAY!!! We are from Florida, so we are used to mosquitos and bugs, but the noseeums came out in full force as soon as the sun started setting, so load up on the repellent. I made the mistake of going for a leisurely kayak at dusk without it and itched for the rest of the week. My mistake. There are several local restaurants in Palmetto Point that we stopped at for lunch/dinner(Sweet Dreams, 3JS jerk pit(YUM!), mate and jenny's). Some of the information in the welcome packet is a bit outdated, such as there being a cooler at the house, which there wasn't. That made it difficult to pack up some cold drinks and head out for day trips while trying to save some money. We called Sue the housekeeper but she said there wasn't one, nor a clothes washer. Also, we called Mavis Johnson for some home cooked meals per the number given in the packet, but she informed us that she hasn't been doing that for awhile since she has been sick. The internet was very shoddy when we got there, but Arthur warned us about that when we arrived. We tried calling the internet/phone company several times, but nothing really changed. It wasn't a big deal as we spent most of our time outdoors, but it would have been nice to have access to research some local hot spots/restaurants. The bed in the master was very comfortable, but we did not use the guest bedroom so I can't say anything about that. The kayak was great, but it took both of us to maneuver it down the stairs to use it, it would have been nice to have it stored a little lower, but I can see how it may have gotten blown away.
All in all, this was a vacation unlike no other. We definitely were on "island time" for the week we were there, which was exactly the type of vacation we were looking for! We loved your little piece of paradise.
