"W had a wonderful time at Tamarind House this May. We were a group of 4 adults with 3 young kids (ages 3, 3, and 6). We spent many hours in the pool, playing and gazing at the Pitons. The pool area is beautifully done, with lots of seating and shade, as well as lots of space in the pool, and even some blow up pool toys for the kids.
Cheryl and Ann took amazing care of us. This was the reason we booked this home, based on the previous reviews, and we were not disappointed. They are very warm, caring, and amazing cooks. We had delicious food all week, and we even had them do the grocery shopping for us (for an extra fee, which was reasonable).
The home is spacious and well appointed. The mosquito nets were very good quality, so no worries about bites.
We used Poppo as a driver (we did not rent as the roads up to the house are very difficult to drive, SO glad we did not rent a vehicle), and he was fantastic. A very safe and courteous driver, and reasonable rates.
Nancy was fantastic to deal with, and answered all our pre-trip questions quickly and thoroughly.
As we were there in May, it was VERY warm with very little breeze through the house. There is no A/C as this is a house designed to take advantage of the trade winds. I think in the cooler months this works very well, but it was really warm for us. There are fans in the bedrooms, which were just enough for us, but in the main rooms when there is no wind, it can be a bit hot. So, we just spent more time in the pool. Do not let this stop you from booking this beautiful home, it is just something I wish I was mentally prepared for=)
Thank you so much for having us in your beautiful home!"
