  • Best vacation ever!

    "Part of me doesn't want to give such a great review but I truly feel I need to. We traveled just after Christmas, my teen son my preteen daughter and husband and we're the kind of travelers that would rather never see another tourist at all. Let me say this place fit us perfect. Phones turned off only electronics we brought were a laptop to do workouts for my son and a jambox to listen to music! We brought our own snorkeling gear but could easily go next door to the reef house to get everything we needed for a low price. Convenience of a well stocked grocery store easily finding EVERY AMERICANIZED name brand need. Also there's a little store the key quicky store just in case u need more bottled water. The house kitchen is as equipped as my own at home! I love to cook! Only thing I found funny missing was a pizza cutter. lol but who but us would eat pizza on an island! George the caretaker and water taxi driver was so nice and accommodating! Offering to help us with anything and everything! Gina the house lady also cooked us up a local meal that was delicious. I cooked almost every other meal and we only ate out twice. I do recommend eating at the reef house next door. Delicious! And Elam (not sure if that's his name) the fisherman - wow - talk about fresh fish! King crab, grouper, snapper and my favorite LOBSTER! Fresh and cleaned and did I mention fresh!! Exactly what these landlocked seafood lovers dreamed about having available. And lastly the view, the water experiences! Everything from seeing puffer fish the size of a large dog to the schools of parrot fish and more! I suggest a visit to the iguana park and ziplining tour that Dave the taxi driver would take you to. So awesome. We spent most of our days in sheer comfort. The breezes with the open doors and windows in the main living area to the extreme comfort and luxury of air conditioning to sleep in. Large rooms and huge bathrooms. Plus ability to wash clothes! It was just as fun to piddle around in the pool out front as it was to go beyond and find the reef literally out the back door to see gorgeous God made entertainment. We didn't even turn the tv on (well maybe 2 times) which had cable (my daughter however loved the kids channels in her room). Books, games, art supplies, I mean this home was I would say better than a home away from home! Dave, Gina, Elam, the reef house people and most especially George helped make this trip an awesome one for my entire family! Thank you!"

  • Unreal

    "Look, I understand how someone could give this a three-star rating if they are expecting to be in walking distance from other stuff, need air conditioning, etc., but that is not what this place is about. Yes, the grocery store is 20 minutes away, but on the bright side, you are 20 minutes away from civilization in your own private paradise. My wife and I went with a couple of friends, none of us had kids, and we initially had certain expectations, like restaurants close by, internet/phone service, air conditioning, etc., but all of that goes away after your first couple of hours there. The internet didn't work, and I'm glad it didn't, it was an escape from everything. We actually forgot one of our suitcases, turns out we didn't even need it, just need bathing suit and a pair of shorts for an entire week. As for air conditioning, there was a constant cool ocean breeze all day and night, didn't need it. The staff was great, didn't get in our way at all, but were seconds away if we ever needed anything. We literally had our own private reefs right in front of us. You could take the boat out to the deeper reefs, kayak and drop anchor at some other reefs, or just jump off the boat dock and float through some of the most beautiful reefs until you reached the other dock, and then repeat all day every day. We never saw or heard any other boats or people, except for the occasional local fisherman who shouts up to you to see if you would like any live crab or lobster. Who needs civilization when you have this at your fingertips? There was a sound system so we could play our ipod outside, tv with dvd and satellite tv, so you could still stay connected to the world. If you are the type of person that needs to go shopping, go to restaurants for all of your meals, and needs to be entertained, then maybe this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a great escape from the world, THIS is the place for you."

  • Perfect!

    "We had the pleasure of staying for two weeks in St. Mac's Upper unit. Right from the first contact, the owners were wonderful to deal with and always quick to respond to any of my emails. We are a family of five so the bedrooms and layouts were perfect for us. The main living area/kitchen/dining room is huge and the entire unit is very well appointed. The kitchen has everything you need and the blender makes fabulous margaritas! We spent many hours out on the large deck. It was a perfect location, including your very own private beach to enjoy with lots of shade. West Bay was really busy for the first week we were there because of Semana Santa and we felt blessed to enjoy our quiet portion of the beach. The maid and laundry service was exceptional and very much appreciated. I would not hesitate to recommend St. Mac's to all of my friends and family. We hope to enjoy it again very soon!"

  • Perfect for us!

    "Our recent stay at the Blue Bayou Beach house was perfect. if you're looking for amenities that you would find at a beach resort, this house is not for you, however it was perfect for my wife and I. Mike, the property manager takes care of anything you made need. He comes by everyday and is always a pleasure to talk to. You will not find a better view of the sunrise than from the hammock on the porch of Blue Bayou Beach House. We spent a lot of time on the porch. The neighborhood is quiet and it's only a 10-15 minute walk to town. There is great snorkeling right off the dock. I agree that the house could use a little TLC (updating), but it does have everything you need. It's the perfect place for two people to get away and truly have some down time! The island was great and I hope to go visit again soon!"
