  • Perfect location on the island!

    "This was a great place for a quiet girl's trip, a couple, or small family. We were three women who wanted a Caribbean vacation AWAY from the resorts and cruise areas. The home was clean, and in a perfect location for the ocean breeze. Travelers should know you must walk along a trail to reach the property, but the view, quiet location, and breeze is worth the walk. The caretakers were very kind, accommodating and was even waiting for us with a light when we were not back before dark. The kitchen had basic supplies for cooking, although we had a little trouble with the propane tank. Santiago was quick to get us another one and help us connect it. One air conditioner worked well, but was very noisy. The other didn't work. The property manager quickly sent a repairman, but it was unrepairable. Sleeping was a bit warm in that bedroom! My only suggestion is to provide some sheets with a higher cotton content (I'm being very picky here). If you've looked into this area, you know that this island is still off the beaten path which has advantages, and some disadvantages. The people are extremely kind, but there was a mugging the previous month so be cautious walking at night. We (three women) felt very safe during the day. A local, named Rene', was a good guide if you want to take a day trip or go out at night. There was also quite a bit of trash everywhere, but the area around the home is relatively clean. On a calm day you can snorkel down the path, and the Firefly restaurant was a wonderful place to get a meal. The water taxis are easy to use and can take you anywhere in the area for a low cost. This was a great place for our adventure! Highly recommended!"

  • Great house for Family

    "My family has stayed twice at this house. It is large enough for everyone to be comfortable. The patio is also large with a great barbecue. There are plenty of towels; could use a few more pots and pans in kitchen. My grandchildren would say that the mule is the best part; great for getting to all the island beaches. We will definitely be returning."

  • Great beach getaway

    "We are a family of 5 who recently stayed in Nina's condo and were completely happy with our stay! It's a great unit with 3 bedrooms and plenty of common space. We loved the deck that looks right onto the beach and that you're only steps from the pool. It's crazy hot there so the air conditioning was essential and it worked perfectly. The grounds are neat and tidy, you feel safe and the beach is stunning! It's not a swimming beach but it's breathtaking! I would give this 5 stars if the road getting to the area was better and it had a convenience store on or near the property with some basic staples like milk, eggs, bread... As well because the road is so bad coming into it, they encourage you to be back before dark. So not entirely ideal if you're wanting to explore other areas. It's a gorgeous spot but it's isolated. So as long as you get groceries before you arrive and are ok with being home before dark, you'll love it! As well, Nina was great to deal with. Responding fast when emailed, and same with her friend who manages on site. Very helpful and informative."
