"My husband stayed here for our honeymoon 6/28-7/5
The home is a perfect location for visiting all the north shore beaches.
If you don't rent a car, just a warning, the hill/driveway is BIG, i loved it though because it gives you some exsercise. i counted, about 470 steps from street to doorway.
Down the hill (drive-way) is Peace hill parking lot which leads straight to Denis Bay, one of our favorite beaches, stayed there for 3-4 hours and saw maybe a handful of people if that! It was incredible. Good reef snorkeling and TONS of sandy beach to play.
Taking a left out the drive way, its a short walk to Oppenheimer/Gibney, we spent every sunset at this beach, its also not a very crowded beach, but its a local favorite! We swam around with a stingray right in the 3-4 ft water, so cool.
We aslo walked to Jumbie but didn't swim here too long so i don't have much to say.
We had a taxi driver pick us up from the ferry when we first arrived "Chico" He was totally awesome, we ended up using him (called/txt) any time we needed to go anywhere.
We cooked pretty much every night we were there. Has plenty of pots and pans to use/ silverware/ coffee/ even some spices left by other guests. Plenty of salt and pepper :)
The shower is nice, its an out door shower and has clothes pins to hang your wet suits.
Bed is super comfortable and never got too hot! we ended up using the isolating fan in the evening but i don't think it was necessary bc it really wasn't too hot.
The open house is pretty awesome, def some bugs but i lived through it, and back home I'm terrified of bugs.
The birds like to come into the house and be careful, if you walk away from your plate for even 30 seconds, they will be there!
Saw a few lizards in the house, which i loved!
Any time we needed to call management for a question, they answered quite quickly, or returned our phone call with in minutes.
We ate at Asolare which is a few minutes right before you get into mongoose junction/cruz bay, its a fine dinning restaurant and for the two of us we spent around $125. There are plenty of different places to eat in town/ we actually ended up going to Coral Bay a few times to eat/ drink. Every place on this island is COOL and all with in 30 min. drive!
Overall, Perfect and affordable place to stay in on the north shore, we DEFIANTLY will be be back! We can't wait!"
