Cool Change is the quintessential Caribbean island getaway cottage. Surrounded by mature palms and casuarina trees on an acre-sized lot, Cool Change offers peace, quiet and privacy, a wide sandy beach, and comfortable accommodations for up to four adults. The beach is very sandy and reef-protected. The snorkeling is excellent and one can walk for quite a while in either direction. There are areas where one can enter the water barefoot here, but we always advise water shoes or swim fins in the marine environment.
The oceanfront living room has windows on three sides—you’ll practically feel like you’re on the beach! Enjoy comfortable sofas and a large 52" flat screen TV for winding down at the end of the day. Small indoor dining table seats four. Another larger table sits on the patio for al fresco dining!
Large private lot, plenty of palm trees for shade and close proximity tot he Rum Point Club make Cool Change a favorite for a great value.
