"We thoroughly enjoyed the week we spent in this home. We are already planning our next trip!
About the home:
This house is the perfect place to stay on the island. Sitting on the deck, you feel like you are are the only person enjoying the view. There are actually three decks, two facing the ocean. The rooms each have their own air conditioning systems so you will stay cool and comfortable at night. The bathrooms have nice tile, and each has a window with a screen so you feel like you are outdoors while you shower. The upstairs living area is very nice. The kitchen has a huge sink, and beautiful granite countertops. On either side of the living area are large glass doors which allow you to enjoy the view even while indoors. Directv and wireless internet are provided, as well as a local phone. A washer and dryer are also on site, this allowed us to pack less and saved us from an overage fee with the airline. Our favorite place at the house was the hammock- our 22 month old took her daily naps on it.
About the island:
The locals were very friendly and more than willing to help us find (mostly) hidden places, like a beautiful lagoon, as well as necessities, like the local grocery store. We spent our days exploring Dean's Blue Hole, walking at the Columbus Monument, taking an Eco tour of Sandy Cay and the surrounding keys, and hiking to Adderley's Plantation Ruins. Everything was so untouched and beautiful- complete paradise. Clarence Town was so picturesque - the churches are a must see. For the adventurous, the nearby Stella Maris Resort has a cave full of bats! However, our favorite thing to do was simply sit by the water at Santa Maria Beach. The water is so clear, and beautiful- we found starfish as we snorkeled."
