"We absolutely loved staying at Sweet Escape Villa. We were so excited to get there from the time we first looked at the photos of the Villa on VRBO to when we walked in the door and saw the Great Room in Real Life. We were so very pleased to arrive and know we had made a very good choice. The Villa is beautifully decorated, well maintained & very comfortable and clean. From the beautiful floor tiles to the Caribbean wood beamed ceiling it will not disappoint. The aqua slip cover sofa's, chaise lounge & chairs are in very good condition, super comfortable. I particularily loved the chaise lounge with the flamingo's on it. I laid their everyday, after exploring, to read the book I was enjoying. Their was a beautiful breeze every day, right in that spot, bliss.
My husband did all the grilling. He loved the Weber Genesis Grill. There were 2 full tanks provided, the utensils and grill were in excellent shape. There is a beautiful round glass table in the kitchen with nice new chairs and 3 square tables with 8 long beach dining chairs in the screened in porch overlooking the canal & dock. We loved dining on the screened in porch, it was a nice atmosphere, looking at palm trees and feeling like we lived there. We really wanted to stay forever. There are sunbrella cushions, nice taste in colours. We strapped a kayak to the top of the SUV - Katherine thought of everything, she even has Tie Straps to ensure the Kayak, Water Hammick or SUP"S are safely secured when transporting to Leeward to Kayak in the Mangroves or Chalk Sound to paddle on the most amazing turquoise, white water every. That is where they used to pan for salt, nice and shallow, beautiful mansions and we loved Las Brisas Restaurant and Pool Bar. The food & drinks were amazing and we were welcome to swim in the pool for a change.
The Villa property has beautiful mature trees all over. I think it is about 1 acre. The two tier dock has a dockside patio which we enjoyed late at night. Katherine was right about the bright stars. We saw so many shooting stars, the sky is incredibly beautiful.
We used the sup's in the canal, it was fun cruising around. It is very peaceful. It was nice to cool off in the water and check out the other properties along the canal.
Joselyn showed us the shed where all the beach chairs, snorkel gear, life jackets, helmets and other rental items are organized.
The lights are on timers so if we came back after dark it was well lit. Beautiful neighbours as well."
