Kai Vista did not disappoint! What a beautiful slice of paradise. The villa is beautifully appointed, beds quite comfortable, lots of spaces inside and out to split up and have some privacy from the rest of your party if you’d like. In January, it was wise to pay the extra amount to have the pool heater turned on! Unfortunately, the hot tub motor seized up right before we got there, so it was not operational, which was a disappointment. You definitely need some type of splash shoes to walk into the ocean from in front of the villa and down the beach to Rock Point, where there is a sandy beach, good swimming and a bar/restaurant. You can check out snorkel equipment at no extra charge at Silver Thatch and would recommend you do that when you stop to check in so you don’t have to make a trip back down. There are kayaks at the property, but a call to the manager’s office failed to get us the combination to unlock them and they didn’t seem to know where the paddles were. We didn’t pursue it further, but this could be made easier for the guests. I might suggest the owners list the amenities at the villa, such as: shampoo, conditioner, soap, hand lotion, and hair dryers. There is also a nice array of kitchen equipment such as a Keurig, coffee maker with filters, blender, etc. We ordered dish soap, dishwasher soap and laundry detergent, none of which we needed as they were all provided as well. Many spices such as salt & pepper were already there, which was a nice touch. You may want to bring zip lock bags, chip clips, etc so you don’t have to buy them there. A rental car is a must, although we had been to the island before and had already seen many of the attractions, we didn’t feel the need to go exploring once we got to the villa. It was so very nice to be a bit secluded, not hassle with noisy hotel guests or fight for a place at the pool or beach. We just wanted to stay at the villa and enjoy the solitude while having our own “home” to run in to, get a drink, fix lunch, and enjoy the warm weather. We also had Eddie go grocery shopping for us in advance, so we had plenty of food on hand and chose to stay and eat in most of the time. While it was expensive, it was well worth it to us! Also, Chisolm’s market is a short drive from the villa, around 5 minutes, if you need munchies, sunscreen, local fruit, or alcohol. So, all in all, it is a wonderful place and well worth the trip. Thanks to the owners for opening up their home to VRBO guest
