Stop Looking - Book it!!
We just returned to the cloudy Pacific Northwest after 6 days staying at Villa Chai Light. We already miss it in more than one way.
I will give my comments broken down in categories:
Owner Jacky - What a lady! One of sweetest and most accommodating people I have ever met. Her communication from first inquiry to departure was great. When we arrived she had arranged for some grocery items to be in the home and it was just as we asked. We had a brief walk thru of the property and she was on her way. She lives just up the hill.
The Villa - Perfect, well appointed, very clean, well maintained and had that perfect beach feel to it. The house is basically two living areas one upstairs and one down. The downstairs has a full kitchen, king size bed, shower, sleeper sofa, wonderful deck and great view. The same goes for upstairs with the addition of a second bedroom with a single bed. The value you get for the money makes this Villa well worth the price!
Location - North Sound / next to Leverick Marina - Great location with the marina, restaurants, shops and bars next door. We would just walk down the hill to dinner several nights and anything we needed was in the Pantry down the hill. The Villa is quite private and water front with a nice dock including a deck. The dock will accommodate a dinghy which is great for running around North Sound. The constant parade of boats is a treat to watch.
Activities: - next door is the marina, personally feel that a Dinghy rental thru B&B is in order for half of your stay. Andy Bradley next door is great to work with and the dinghy's are perfect to run around the bay on. Our favorite spot was the Sandbox across the bay. Bar, restaurant with good sandwiches and plenty of chairs on a nice private beach. There are plenty of excursions to take advantage of, but plan ahead. Jacky can make suggestions accordingly
Must visit places in North Sound: Sandbox, Saba Rock, Bitter End Yacht Club, Leverick Marina. MUST GO eat lunch at Hog Heaven. What a view. Can't describe it! This is a must.
For any questions while you are there including arranging rental cars etc you have two contacts. First is Jacky the owner and second is Chudney, who can get you anything you need on VG. He is also the one who most likely will pick you up at the ferry dock. Very punctual person based on several interactions with him and a super nice guy!
Now, stop looking, BOOK IT!"
