  • Incredible view

    "My wife and I stayed at Skyflower for our Honeymoon and had an amazing time. The view looks the same as in the pictures but the real experience is breathtaking. Getting used to no air conditioning on the island was an adventure but the villa is at the top of the mountain where the wind cools."

  • Fantastic Stay

    "We had a group of 8 (7 adults and a 12 year old). The house was just as described and was very clean. There was plenty of room for the 8 of us. The deck is large and the view is amazing. The kitchen was equipped with the all the necessities. The water comes from a cistern so you cannot use it for drinking or making coffee. Stock up on gallons of bottled water. Teeth brushing with it is fine. The water wasn't a big deal at all. Dawn was very responsive from when we first booked until when we left. She was friendly, informative and quick to respond. Like most houses on the island, there is only air conditioning in the 2 bedrooms. There are plenty of screen sliding doors for a good cross breeze. The loft rooms have windows, ceiling fans and extra floor fans to keep cool. The loft would not be ideal for smaller children. The stairs are steep and you have to use caution. Once up in the lofts, they are very roomy. We ended up moving our son into the master bedroom with us. We just took a twin mattress from the loft and put it on the bedroom floor. If you have younger ones, you can probably fit 2 twins on the floor of each master. There are two full baths but they are in each of the master bedrooms, so anyone not in a master must come through to use them. None of this was a big deal but just wanted to make note of it. If you go to the beach there are tons of items available at the house for you: beach chairs, coolers, some snorkeling gear, sand buckets, toys and beach towels. The house really had everything we needed. The internet worked pretty well. If it was cloudy or the wind was blowing a little hard, you could have a hard time getting service for a little bit. Nothing to do with the service at the house...just how it goes on the island in general. Everything was very nice and we made a lot of great memories. We were with someone who used to live on the island so we did a lot of traveling around the island, but Dawn will give you tons of ideas if you have never been there before. There are many amazing beaches. The only caution are the roads. They drive on the left and the roads are very narrow, go up, down and around. Many driveways and some roads are pretty steep at times so get a vehicle with 4 wheel drive if possible. The driveway at this house is also steep, but we ended up parking towards the top since we had a mini van. No way it would make it up and down. We just improvised, but you do a lot of that with island living."

  • Excellent, relaxing, beautiful...

    "This is such a wonderful place to stay. The views are breath taking, the pool is awesome to cool off, plenty of sitting areas in / outside. Simple walk to the private beach with very few people there almost have the whole beach to yourself. The bedrooms all have air conditioning which makes for easy sleeping. They also have a bathroom in every bedroom. The views from the master are amazing well from almost anywhere. It also has a small fridge in the laundry room and one outside by the bar so plenty of fridge space. Kitchen has plenty of cookware, utensils etc and the appliances are all nice (wolf / subzero). Great location between Trunk and Cinnamon Bay. Tommy the caretaker is wonderful and very responsive. The only issue was it went by way too fast."
