The house is truly great. It’s set up high on a peninsula overlooking a bay, and takes full advantage of property, making all rooms facing the water. Great layout, with the living room, pool, and sitting areas very central and inviting. Nice walk-in closet with plenty of room for clothes, shoes, etc. Very big shower, with decent water pressure.
Really nice infinity pool, we spent a good deal of time enjoying the pool and looking out onto the bay and ocean. There are nice tables outside if you prefer eating by the pool, and a great table inside in the living room. We ate outside several times, including at night. Keep in mind that you are surrounded by lots of greenery, so there are some bugs and moths around, this is normal for the island. Eat inside if they bother you, and keep the living doors closed after dusk once you turn on the lights.
The kitchen is functional, big refrigerator, nice range, dishwasher, etc. Good supply of plates, glasses, all sorts of kitchen utensils if you plan to cook at home. We did cook at home most of times, which helps you keep costs down. There are a few larger supermarkets close to the airport – we went shopping once we arrived at the island and this lasted us for the entire week, we did have to make one or two runs for items we forgot. We recommend the Gourmet Basket close to the airport. There is a very small store near the house next to the gas station, which has the very basic essentials, in case you need beer or water, etc. Also, Mossy has a contact if you want lobster, and we did order two great lobsters which came already boiled and ready for a quick grill. Outstanding price for the lobsters in my opinion.
A few pluses with the house: There is satellite TV which has a good variety of channels, mostly American to keep you entertained before bed. There is also WIFI which works nice, the speed is enough for web browsing, email, and maybe very light streaming, but don’t expect to have multiple people to be streaming videos on it. Each room has an electric mosquito trap, which seems to work great, there really aren’t that many mosquito to worry about. Keep the ceiling fans on also to keep the odd mosquito away. Mossy has a cell phone that she makes available to you, in case you need to contact her or any local number.
