Large inflatable island with headrest and cup holders, tied off on mornings makes for never ending fun and relaxation. No need to worry about the kids because these are the bone fish flats, which means besides having incredible turquoise waters with white sand bottom, it also has no drop offs, no undertow, just enough waves to enjoy the sounds and the water is only 3-4 feet deep at it's deepest as far as you can walk or swim.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Tad, we are at the airport getting ready to fly back to the real world. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed your gem of a property Aqua Vista.



In all the years we have traveled and places we have stayed, I don't recall using the outdoor space of a property as much as we used this one. The pictures you have posted just doesn't do it justice.



We did travel to a couple beaches we found last year and found a new one this year which I consider the best on the island you can get to by car. Coco Plum Beach, not sure if you have been there, but is a must see next time you are here if you haven't.



Alex was a real pleasure to work with. When we arrived he had our car waiting for us when we walked out, so we were able to load up and go straight to the house.



All in all we had a great trip and look forward to returning to Aqua Vista again in the near future. Thanks to you and Alex for making this trip seamless and extremely pleasurable.



Best Regards,

Ben

You really can't ask for a better place to relax!!!

  • 5 of 5

Oh WOW! Where to start? You know how you see some rentals have pictures posted and when you get there it's not exactly what you expected? NOT THIS PLACE! WOW! It ALL looks just like the pictures! It's amazingly beautiful. We never got bored of just sitting out on the deck or the dock and just looking around in awe of the beauty. All of our friends and family thought we went to Bora Bora or Bali from the pictures we showed them. It really is a little slice of heaven! The house is fully equipped and spotlessly clean. Everything works as it should and it was very comfortable.

Customer service from the owner, Tad and the caretaker, Alex, are also top notch. They anticipated any and all needs and made the stay very smooth and comfortable. Alex knows the island top to bottom. He'll tell you everything you need to know from the best places to shop and eat, to the best beaches and snorkel spots. He knows everyone and everyone knows him!

Overall we love the house and the island and we can't wait to return very soon!

My Happy Place!

  • 5 of 5

Aqua Vista is amazing. If you seek relaxation, calming clear waters, cool ocean breezes...with modern accommodations & the comforts of home, Aqua Vista is it.

There is no sandy beach at your door, but with the docks built out over the water, you won't even miss it! There are numerous beautiful beaches on the island if you wish to have that sand between your toes. We preferred the tranquility and solitude (& confenience) right here at Alta Vista.

The water is as clear as a swimming pool and shallow in this area-you can walk 100 yards in water only waist deep. The waves roll gently in and lull you into total calm!

The house itself is just as pictured. The AC was great, although honestly it was very pleasant even without it! You have all you need in the kitchen and comfy seating in the living area to catch a movie using the DVD player. AV is very clean and well-maintained. Loved every minute there.

Due to travel mishaps of my friend , I spent 3 days alone ...and never once felt uncomfortable or unsafe. Tony, the caretaker, took great care to show me where to get my supplies and led me to the house. He called to check in as well, knowing I was alone as well which was comforting and even brought a fresh tank of water for our use.

Tad, the home's owner, was very responsive and helpful before and during our visit, even providing helpful advise regarding the travel delays we encountered. Both he and Tony are wonderful to work with!

For those who haven't travelled to the islands before, here are a few things that are good to know:

1. The roads are nothing short of horrible due to the climate and weather. Queens Highway is not bad but you'll find edges of the road eroded sharply in some places so be alert. Aqua Vista is off the beaten path so you'll be navigating some downright treacherous pot-hole ridden paths, so always allow ample time for your excursions and take it SLOW. If driving a rental, go for a higher profile option like Jeep or SUV if you are able--helps better navigate the "terrain".

2. Plan to spend 2-3 times your usual on your groceries and supplies. Most items must be shipped to the island and this comes at a cost.

3. Your soaps/shampoos don't lather as normal here, just a heads up.

You won't be disappointed with Aqua Vista..unless you were hoping to be pampered by full-service staff.... You're on your own here & that's perfect!

Thanks Tad & Tony for a great trip.

MOST INCREDIBLE SECLUDED OASIS, YET CLOSE TO TOWN!

  • 5 of 5

The house and prooerty were exactly what we were looking for and then some. Very clean with all the amenities one could ever need or want. Not one thing I would change.

We had less then accommodating weather and still had an awesome time. Much of our time was spent out on the awesome dock even during the crazy thunderstorms. We would highly recommend Aqua vista to anybody looking for a quiet secluded house that is still close to Georgetown.

Tony the caretaker is an extremely nice guy that is willing to help you with anything you may need at the drop of a hat! He was waiting for us at the airport. Helped us get our rental and then took us through town showing us where the stores in town we're before leading us to the house. A super great guy! We will definitely try to get back there for another stay.

Peacefull retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I live a busy life so when we go on vacation we really just need to unplug and relax. Aqua Vista was as advertised and we had a great time. Thanks Tad for sharing your little piece of paradise with us.

The Amazingly Blue Water was the Star by far!!!

  • 3 of 5

The pros: The water, dock, Tony.

The Cons: the road in is a deal breaker for me coming back. It’s not “just a few pot holes, it’s 1 1/4 mile of torturous land mines. And the bed linens need upgraded.

Owner's Response: We always appreciate constructive feedback. We heard no complaints from these guests during their stay. Our linens are always completely replaced yearly. We replaced all linens, comforters, curtains and many other items in June 2018. When we arrived in June we noticed some of the linens had been bleached, most likely by a guest as our cleaning person doesn't do this, and they were a bit discolored as a result. They were clean, in very good shape, just a bit discolored from the bleach, and they had just been replaced by us in January 2018, so were only a few months old when these guests arrived. So we replaced them again just 6 months from the last time we replaced them. We make updates and replace items 1-2 times per year. Most things are not available on the island, so we bring them with us when we visit. The road gets fixed about once every 2-3 years. The neighbors all pitch in and get it smoothed out. This is about to happen next month. The few potholes that develop in the meantime are easily navigated if you just slow down. The beauty of Aqua Vista is it's secluded location and if you've been to any similar settings, you'll know it usually involves some dirt roads and such on the last leg of the trip. If not, you're going to a concrete jungle commercialized resort with hundreds of other people and if that is what you are looking for, Aqua Vista is not your cup of tea. If you read all of our reviews you'll quickly see that our home is beautifully up-kept. When you want to get away from it all, enjoy the most beautiful nature you've ever seen, and avoid the concrete commercialized resort and all the noise and crowds, then there is nio better place than Aqua Vista.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Tad, Aqua Vista is amazing and Tony is an awesome host, We didn't want to leave, but Tony said we had too... more guests were coming. Ok, so we'll just have to come back. We were lucky enough to have three days of no winds and water like glass. Because of this, we were even able to stand up paddle board to one of the closer cays.Took the boat to the rest. Non stop relaxation and fun. Strangely enough, even with no winds, very few mosquitos and noseeums. Maybe it was the religious application of deep woods off. Weather was perfect, water was perfect, everything was perfect. Thank you!
