I can't say enough wonderful things about this place! My husband and I stayed for a week at Island Stones in February (Valentine's Day week 2018). You would hardly know that the villa had been through two significant hurricanes; as the name indicates, it was constructed with island stones and concrete - it seems very sturdy, to say the least. The villa is beautiful and comfortable. The most striking feature of the place is, of course, the view - words, and even the photos, can't really do it justice. We would spend hours just lounging by (and in) the pool gazing out at the view without even realizing (or caring) how much time had passed. The infinity pool was also one of our favorite features of the place. It's creatively and thoughtfully designed with seats/tables for drinks, and is deep enough and big enough to do some actual lap swimming as well as to just linger along the edge taking in the view. (Keep in mind that you are up high and will have cool breezes - which is great for keeping bugs away, among other things! - so the pool may feel a bit brisk at times, so you may want to swim during the times of day when the sun is warmest.) The villa can be accessed off of either Centerline or North Shore road (via a road that is a mix of bumpy/rutty and paved), so the location is a great mix of convenience and feeling like you're in your own little world. It's very private. The family who owns the place (who are off-island but work with an on-island property manager) were all very nice and helpful in making sure everything about our stay went well and that we were happy. They even managed to set up a wifi system for us at a time when Internet access on island is still sketchy post-hurricane. We had a fantastic week there and can't wait to return next winter! (Moving in there permanently might be even better, but I'm not sure that's in the cards....)
