Wonderful Christmas and New Year!

  • 5 of 5

Our family returned two weeks ago from a wonderful stay at Castle Rock over Christmas and New Years. The home had a beautiful view over perfect waters, a private beach, and a well-kept pool. The home has four bedrooms, two with direct door access to the main living room/dining room/kitchen, and one bedroom on either side accessible by the deck outside. The home also has a great washer/dryer room with high functioning equipment. The space worked great for our family of five adults and two small children. The home did come with one Pack and Play, which was great for us.

The owner was incredibly responsive to email, even over the holidays. We had a few questions along the way and she would respond immediately and thoughtfully.

We also had dinner made for us one evening by Evelyn, who offers her services to everyone who stays at the home. Her prices for cooking were comparable to going out to one of the local restaurants for a full dinner and the ease of having an incredible home-cooked dinner delivered at the time of our choosing was wonderful. I highly recommend taking her up on her offer.

We also rented a boat from the nearby marina for a week and found that it was a great way to visit all the nearby cays. Some days we took it out on our own, and other days we used Sam as our guide and that was really wonderful as he could show us all the best spots.

Treasure Cay is a beautiful, generally quiet, extremely safe and relaxing place to get away, and this home is a special retreat.

Beautiful Setting--but accomadations were not what we expected

  • 2 of 5

Owners Susan and Jerry are two of the most responsive, friendly, and honest people you will have contact with--very polite and easy to deal with.

The pictures look wonderful--but some of the bedrooms are not connected, most furnishings are outdated and in need of repair, updating, and cleaning. There is no central heat and due to our time frame a cold snap hit and we were so cold we had to depart early.

The home is listed for sale in Sotheby International for 850K--we were expecting a much different experience.

Castle Rock

  • 4 of 5

The view is breath taking. Cute house. Unfortunately, we could not use the fourth bedroom due to a severe insect infestation. Also, the hot tub was on a timer, and could not use the jets, disappointing. All the appliances are old and need replacing. All locks on sliding doors are inoperable. Despite the need for updates, we had a great time, and would stay there again.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry about the bugs in the fourth bedroom. Apparently it was a swarm of ants. We we have not had a problem since that time and are doing a thorough search to prevent it from happening again. The sliding doors are easily locked by inserting a nail that fits into both doors and prevent them from being opened . We also have dowels that shit in the tracks and keep the doors from opening. All of the appliances are working well I did seems a shame to replace them until it is necessary. The dishwasher was replaced last November. We do try very hard to keep everything working well at Castle Rock. We explaining our letter that if you want the Jets to be running in the hot tub simply reset the circuit breaker. The Jets begin in four minutes. We enjoyed having you at Castle Rock and hope you will return. Blessings for safe and smooth travels.

Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Castle Rock. The view and setting are what we have always dreamed of. We loved exploring by golf cart and island hopping by boat. We enjoyed several beachside restaurants and the grocery store was well stocked and convenient. Waking up to the sunrise each morning was special. We loved relaxing in the hot tub, in the hammock, and on lounge chairs by the pool or on the beach. Dining on the deck was unforgettable. A perfect vacation. It was hard to leave.

Incredible vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we found this property for our Christmas family vacation. There were 8 of us (7 adults and 1 2 year old) and the house was perfect, the location ideal. The bedrooms are spacious and well decorated with a gorgeous view from every one. We were able to lay in bed and watch the sunrise every morning! Weather was warm, a constant 78-80 degrees during the day and about 72 at night. The constant breeze made being outside delightful The beach is beautiful and because it was a bit windy during our stay we simply walked or took the golf cart the 1/4 mile to leeward side so the baby could swim. The pool and hot tub got some use but we spent most of our time in the ocean and on the beach. Kitchen was very well stocked so coconut rum drinks and nice home cooked meals were our evenings but we did venture out for happy hour and a couple of dinners at the Bahama Beach Club and of course thursday pizza night at the Tipsy. Everyone on the island was so friendly and made you feel welcome and safe. The bikes were a bit funky but we used them quite a bit and water pressure in the house is sometimes weak but that is the islands. . All in all this property could not have been better and the Keefe's (owners) were so helpful and friendly, answering all our questions and even helping us to arrange transportation and reserve our golf cart. It is a very easy island to drive also so a car rental might have been a good idea in order to see a bit more of the island. I highly recommend chartering a boat and captain in order to snorkel the beautiful reefs as there si not much to see on the island. But the relaxation was awesome and we had to keep inching ourselves in the morning that we were really looking out at that incredible view of paradise. .
