"I, and my two young adult children truly had the time of our lives.
The House: Far exceeded our expectations of a beach front home. Clean, comfortable, and inviting. Large fully equipped kitchen open to the dining and living areas. Actually the entire house is fully equipped with anything that you could possibly need and then some. Outstanding ocean views from any room in the house. A beautiful wrap around deck with access from the living room and all 4 bedrooms, gives a bird’s eye view of the beach and spectacular sun rise and sunset views with the main land mountains as a back drop. One of the many outstanding features of this home is the salt water swimming pool with deck area, a stone waterfall with a resident iguana, surrounded by lush tropical fauna.
The Beach: Walk out your door and you’re on your own private beach. The grounds and the beach are meticulously maintained. Hammocks, lounge chairs, a fire pit, and a small lagoon full of reef fish. If you like snorkeling, you truly won’t find a better location to stay. Maybe a 50’ walk to the water’s edge. Put your gear on and swim 50’ though the sand channel to the reef, and you are experiencing paradise under water! Outstanding reef! Dramatic views of the drop off to the ocean floor. People were paying a lot of money to dive boat companies to access that reef. We snorkeled numerous times a day, every day, for free, at our convenience, right outside our door!
Location: It’s only a 15 minute walk to downtown. 5 minutes if driving. Yet when at the house, it feels like you’re on your own deserted island. Peaceful, tranquil, safe and secure.
How Do You Say Priceless? Tina and JJ, that’s how. They are the resident concierges at Paradise Regained. Their knowledge, guidance, friendship and sincere willingness to make our vacation special was what really made this trip outstanding. Vacationing at any new destination can have a learning curve that can last your entire vacation wasting precious time, energy, and money. From the moment they picked us up at the airport, we felt like we were among trusted friends. They arranged numerous side trips, excursions, ATV rentals, restaurants, and anything else we may have needed. They booked a white water rafting trip for us to the mainland mountain jungle. Driver waiting @ ferry dock, amazing B&B in the mountains, rafting guide,tickets, and meals, all within 10 minutes. Try hitting that home run yourself in a third world country Priceless!"
