  • Truly a "Home Away From Home"

    "Our three generation family of six just returned from a wonderful vacation in beautiful Puerto Rico. Madeline, the owner and contact for renting this villa, was exceptionally easy to work with and very responsive to my emails from start to finish. Receiving the villa keys and key code for the garage door opener before we left home was very reassuring and convenient. When we arrived, we had all of the needed documentation for passing through the security gates. The villa was just as we expected. It worked very well for our twin grandsons to stay in one room with the twin beds on the same floor as their parents and we, the grandparents, stayed in the master bedroom on the third floor. There was everything we needed to make this our "home away from home," including plenty of room to spread out. The location was ideal for taking the ferry into Old San Juan, visiting the Bacardi Distillery and driving up into the mountains. Although there is a beautiful beach and pool in the complex, we didn't use them this time. If we visit Puerto Rico again, we wouldn't hesitate to rent this villa and for a longer period, allowing us time to sightsee and use the pool and beach. (We stayed three nights.) Restaurants and the supermarket were conveniently located and Madeline included good directions to all of them."

  • Island Perfection

    "Start with an excellent greeting at the airport, add a well decorated and well equipped condo, a comfortable bed and a beautiful sea view and you have perfection. The west end of the island is easy to drive around and a great starting point for exploring the entire island. Good food and fun bars are plentiful in Frederiksted and the surrounding area - breakfast at Polly's is a great way to start the day. The condo has everything that a person could ask for and special touches like coffee to get you started the next morning. The people of St Croix will always have a special place in our heart - as will this condo!"

  • Amazing house!

    "Wow! What a wonderful week we had at Drift Away!!!!!! As everyone else has stated in previous reviews, we instantly felt at home when we arrived. Great reading library (I didn't finish a book so I took it home with me and will be mailing it back to Bob!) and music selection. We did not turn on TV at all. The July heat through me for a loop the first few hours without AC, but then I got accustomed to the gentle breezes throughout the house and all was well. The Lasko brand pedestal fan they had was great- we could have used 1 more of those at night, just because it was July. We actually slept on the deck several nights under the stars. Not because it was too hot in the bedrooms, but because it was so wonderful outside! Bedrooms and bathrooms were great, and the kitchen was well equipped. Having the washer and dryer was a big lifesaver. We made sure to empty and refill the ice trays to supplement the ice maker in the freezer, and we never had to buy ice. We used the gas grill a lot. One suggestion for the bathrooms would be to have a no slip mat in both of the bathtubs. My 76 year old mother said she held onto the window sill while showering so she would not slip (I also found our tub a bit slippery). Here are a few suggestions for things to be sure to take with you or purchase at Maxwell's when you arrive: * dishwashing liquid * toilet paper * paper towels * laundry detergent If I were to plan a trip to the Abacos again, I would 100% say that I would stay at Drift Away. Outstanding privacy, easy access to other islands by boat, snorkeling right off the beach- can't get any better than that! Thanks to Judy the housekeeper for the phone calls to check on us! Delmond the gardener was also delightful! Thank you, Bob, for your lovely "home away from home", and sharing it with us. It was truly a memorable week."

  • Tremendous

    "Tremendous apartment, great location within walking distant of everything in Old San Juan including a wonderful private beach. The unit is more than advertised. Very smooth transaction and deposit refunded within 48 hours as promised. Margarita was so helpful with plenty of wonderful suggestions. Also the unit is right next door to Palmas restaurant and bar where the food is authentic and the owner Javier and his staff insures everyone feels at home."
