"This is truly a beautiful, clean, well kept, wonderful place. It has everything you could possibly need and more. It is located in the heart of Grace Bay... one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Beach access is very convenient & really close to the house. It's a nice private short walk to the most white silky sand beaches, with the warmest turquoise waters I have ever experienced. I also really enjoyed the patio and the pool which was amazing to have in your backyard! It was so warm & I pretty much lived in the pool when ever we were home. The yard is so private & beautifully well kept with flowers & trees. There was also lots of chair options & plenty of towels for everyone.
I would recommend renting a car to see all the wonderful sights on this beautiful island.
We enjoyed eating @ Danny Buoy's. The food was very tasty & reasonably priced. There's also lots of patio space to enjoy the warm evening weather.
I would highly recommend this VRBO property to anyone & I would go back in a heart beat!
Thank you for the wonderful memories & an awesome vacation!!!"

Great spot. Agree with all the positive reviews here
"-First time visitors to TCI from Canada. 6 adults (31 to 65) 3 kids (15mo to 5yo) visiting Feb 2015
-Home suited us very well. Lots of space, very comfortable and very clean as mentioned.
-great pool, very lush landscaping contributing to a private feel, nice outdoor seating/ dining table
-4 bikes (3 adult) , beach chairs, toys for kids....such a nice touch.
-kitchen was very nice, very well equipped as advertised and they even have a good selection of spices too. -BBQ is there too which we used twice for family meals at the house.
-beach was awesome. probably a 5-10 minute walk to the closest point. you could walk either direction. we were very surprised that the beaches were NOT busy, but then again you're not in a resort area until you start walking a ways west down the beach!
-for making your OWN food you can go to the Marina (<10 min bicycle) which is a small high-end grocer (limited proteins). It's expensive. Bring a backpack (the bicycles have baskets too). Alternatively you can bike to Graceway gourmet (about 30-45 mins each way on bicycle). Or drive to graceway gourmet (10 mins by car) or to the less expensive IGA on the highway (15+ mins by car.). Snacks are expensive so consider bringing your own (eg granola bars)
-Tonnes of good restaurants on the island.... they will provide you with dining guides and maps to help you find your way! Even the closest restaurants are a decently far walk, FYI but we walked as far as Hemingways (1 hour walk each way)
-agree to strongly recommend bringing bug spray. lots of little "no-see-em" bugs which bite some people more than others. they're everywhere on the island so you just gotta be prepared to deal with them!
-we loved walking (or cycling) into the grace bay commercial area but if you're not keen on exercise you would need a rental.
-we rented a scooter for one day (just my wife and I) from paradise scooters to explore the island and we also rented a 10 person van (grace bay rentals) to explore the island with the entire family. No problems with any rentals. Scooter rental employee picked you up and brought you to the rental location (and returned you). The van rental company offered complimentary drop off at the house and pickup at the house (very handy). Scooter rental was $75USD for a day, van was $190USD. Driving on the opposite side was NOT challenging. People drive relatively slow compared to what we're used to.
-we would all HIGHLY recommend Villa Tropica @ 25 Sandpiper. :)"

"We rented Barefoot Palms for a week in July. We've used vbro many times and we had another wonderful experience this time. First off, Ramona, the owner is terrific with answering questions, giving recommendations, assistance etc. It saved me a lot of time rather than going over to the Tripadvisor forums to ask questions. Also when the power went off in Leeward for just 45 minutes one night, Ramona called to check up on us. Also, Jameka and Wendy who are nearby on the island are very helpful if the need arises.
I am so thankful that we stayed on the Leeward end of the island because we felt this beach was by far the most spectacular and suited our needs better than Grace Bay. I had looked at another property that was in the chalk sound area and I'm so glad that I did not choose that one. It is just a short walk to the beach and I went running every morning on the beach up to Emerald Point. There are some large homes built on this beach, but they are set way back so as not to deter from the beauty of this amazing beach. Try snorkeling around some of the rock formations. Also, we felt the safest in this area of the island, not that we had any issues, but it was a very nice community.
Lastly, the house is older, but is well maintained and has everything you will need. The pool is wonderful and the plants, trees surrounding it are beautiful. We've been on many islands where the internet/tv/electricity/water etc gave us problems and that was not the case here. You won't want to spend a lot of time watching tv or using the internet, but it's there if you need it. The rental price is right on target, and compares to similar homes we've rented on other islands."

"Four couples stayed at the Channel House for one week in January. We all had a wonderful time. The house suited all of us perfectly. We had the ocean, the pool, the kayak, a well appointed kitchen, many seating areas and tables, a large deck overlooking the ocean.
We enjoyed privacy but we were also close to the Grace Bay tourist area.
Wish we could have stayed longer in such beautiful surroundings."
