Well built, well maintained, clean, well stocked villa for two people. The drive up the hill to the house is an adventure, the 50 steps can be tiring after a day of hiking...but the view from the deck is well worth it. Cooked at home on the grill every day (two grocery stores within a mile), swam in the pool (shared with some frogs & lizards once the sun goes down), loved taking a refreshing outdoor shower , watched a little tv at night before going to sleep (Netflix, fire stick), posted pics of our day (WiFi is good), but mostly just sat at the little bar height table on the deck and enjoyed the amazing view. Communication with owner & local host was excellent.
We were part of a family wedding, so we were in and out of imposing villas in Great Cruz Bay and Chocolate Hole. And, we were so happy to retreat to quiet Fish Bay. The fact that Fish Bay is a little further apart served us well. After full days, we could sit on the cottage's porch, look at the stars, drink wine, listen to the surf, and relax. The cottage is indeed charming and traditional with a well stocked kitchen, a blessed bedroom air conditioner, overhead fans, beach supplies, a jacuzzi that overlooks the lush green hills, a big roomy outdoor shower, and a friendly dog named Pip. We were grateful to have this quiet cottage retreat to come home to.
