"What's not to like about this place ? The house itself is very spacious for up to 4 people. Everything is in good working order. The beds are all comfortable, the water pressure is very good, the air conditioning cooled the place well enough although we only used it 2 or 3 of the 8 nights we were there. Most nights we just opened all the doors and windows when we came back from our day's outings and the breeze cooled the place right down. There were enough bath and beach towels for 4 people which is nice because towels take up a lot of luggage space if you have to bring them yourself.
The complex is very quiet. We didn't really see too many of the residents or other renters. More often than not, we had the pools and hot tub to ourselves. Even when there was someone else there, it was usually only a few people. The common pools are really nice, and our plunge pool was perfect for cooling off. It also provided our 4 year old with endless fun.
As others have said, you really need a car to get here but we were fine with that. It allowed us to really explore the island.
The owner was super helpful, and super responsive to any questions you might have to ask.
Being able to just pack up and leave without having to do any clean up was great.
I do have a few suggestions for improvements. None of these would deter me from renting the place again, unreservedly recommending it to others, or changing my five star rating, but here they are:
- The pictures while they do a good job of depicting the house and the complex, are clearly out of date. The little palm trees in the front of the houses are now fully grown. There also seem to be two pictures of the dining area in the house each with different tables, there was only one. The grasses around the plunge pool have been replaced with some sort of bush. Some new pictures would be appropriate.
- The previous reviewer said that the kitchen is well appointed. I found that it was adequately appointed but I supposed that's subjective. I felt it could have used a few more pots/pans, and kitchen tools.
- It would be nice to have a few beach chairs and umbrellas for use by the renters so you don't have to pay to rent them.
But again, these are really minor quibbles. If you're looking for a a super relaxing, chilled out, comfortable place to stay, stop looking and rent it."
