"With a daughter graduating high school, we decided it was time for a big trip. After searching for a couple of months, I found Bay Rum Breeze and could not have been more pleased. We planned this trip for year, with high expectations that were truly met. July 2015, Our family of 5 which included my husband, our 18 year old and 15 year old daughters, 17 year old son, and mysel. The house was perfect for us. Usually the pictures on websites are a little better than the actual house, but this was NOT the case. As wonderful as the pictures are, it is still so much better in person. The views are spectacular and the breeze was always cooling. We were never hot sitting outside enjoying the view with a cocktail in hand. The bedrooms were roomy and comfortable, each with a very nice full bath. The outdoor showers were to die for!!!! The kitchen had everything you needed to cook meals, however we wanted to try so many different restaurants, we ate most dinners out. There were coolers and plenty of beach/pool supplies. The pool and hot tub were a nice way to end our evenings. Ellen was wonderful to work with and offered many suggestions. She was quick to answer if we had questions. The house also had fun games and movies for family time fun. We felt safe and loved the Coral Bay side of the island. It was much quieter and easy to navigate. Restaurants we enjoyed were the Aqua Bistro, Skinny Legs had incredible burgers for a great price, Indigo grill, The Lime Inn, and Vie's Snack Shack - WOW! Drinks were fun in Cruz Bay at the Beach Bar, High Tide, and of course Woody's. Brunch at Miss Lucy's on Sunday is a must. We also did a catamaran day snorkel trip with Calypso, which was a lot of fun. It had good food, great drinks, and excellent service. We rented a cute jeep from Aqua Blue Rentals, and they were great to us, even when we went swimming with the car keys in our pocket - OOPS! Majo Beach was our favorite and it was a quick drive from BRB. We saw sea turtles every day. I was not crazy over Trunk Bay. It was extremely touristy and the locals that worked at the concession stand were rude and not friendly. Every other place had very friendly and helpful people. I can't say enough about our trip and how wonderful everything was. I could go on and on! We are so sad that our trip has come and gone, but we talk constantly of the lovely Bay Rum Breeze and our Dream week. Thank you so much for everything, Ellen!"
