"Our second stay at Hawk’s Cry was a wonderful, peaceful, relaxing, self-indulgent 2 weeks. This luxurious, comfortable, well equipped house was the perfect place to banish the year’s stresses. We were delighted when we heard the hawk's cry!
Reading or lunch on the veranda were punctuated with unexpected delights: snowy egrets, blue heron and green heron, green crested hummingbird, a Caribbean mockingbird, and a white sailing ship, 5 masts unfurled sailing across the bay. Our highlight was a whale surfacing and diving in the bay.
On all but one occasion we had the infinity pool to ourselves for our daily swim.
Kris, the manager, and Rena, the housekeeper, were as helpful as it is possible to be, before, and during, our stay.
Hawk’s Cry is out of town, but we decided not to hire a car and used a local taxi firm at a fraction of the price. It was like having a chauffeur for trips to the supermarket, beach or restaurant and they responded with very little notice. No need to worry about having a drink, buying fuel, parking, or damage to a hire car.
Rodney Bay is a gourmet’s paradise. We ate out almost every night.
A truly tropical island with the occasional downpour, we watched the bay change from gloomy and threatening, to gently misty, and then, miraculously, to glorious sunshine within the hour.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful, idyllic home. We'll be back again next year."
