I stayed at the Sun Cloud Villa with four of my friends the first week of April 2018. None of us had ever stayed at the house before, so no one knew what to expect. We were pretty blown away with the place once we got inside and settled it. It has five bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom. Walk out onto the back patio and all you see is the turquoise-blue water of the ocean as far as the eye can see. There is a fantastic pool and hot tub, and you can walk right down to the ocean which is shallow and warm and sandy-bottomed once you get a few steps off shore and in the water (bring rubber-soled shoes to get those few steps from land to water since the shore itself is pretty rocky).
The house has a huge kitchen with everything you need to make meals which we did almost every day. The nearest grocery store is a bit of a hike back to the more populated part of the island, which we all decided was a good thing! The house is located in a fairly secluded and remote part of the island, making it very private and peaceful, but requiring a little extra driving when you want to go to some of the island’s other attractions. I’ll take the peace and quiet over proximity to crowds any day.
But the location is not completely isolated. Within walking distance is the Rum Point resort with bars, restaurants and a coffee shop just a 15 minute stroll down the road. We went to Rum point a few times during our week stay. But mostly, we just stayed in the house, enjoying the ocean views, dips in the pool and lounging in the sun. If you are looking for a place to really get away from it all and feel like you are truly on vacation, this is the place. So comfortable, well-appointed and relaxing. I can’t wait to go back.
We had so much fun at our week long vacation at the home! We loved the pool and spent our nights grilling or playing games on the back porch! We found some local restaurants on the same side of the island and really enjoyed ourselves.
Roland and the property manager were so helpful when we had questions during our stay! We would definitely return to the house again!
Things to note- Seven Mile Beach is about 45 minutes away, but we made two day trips and had a blast. We honestly enjoyed the privacy of the home most days!
The closest full grocery store is about 20-30 minutes away, but really wasn’t an issue for us. We stocked up and stopped by when needed. There’s a small grocery about 5 mins away.
Rum point is about 3 minutes down the road and has activity options, a restaurant and bar.
I highly recommend the house if you are looking for peace and relaxation, or if you have a group of 6-10 and are looking for quality time spent together! Absolutely enjoyed our stay!!!
