"The setting, ocean view, decor, complete serenity and comfort of this cottage was beyond compare. It is the most beautiful, well appointed and efficient use of space that I've found in years of rentals elsewhere. Light and appealing in the daytime, quiet and cozy at night. I was visiting the first week in April, which was not a heavy school vacation time. Since there are other units next door and a pool below, it probably was unusually quiet. It was dreamy to have both a first and second floor balcony to enjoy the wrap around surf, dolphins, and sea birds.
Having said that, the sliding glass door to the first floor balcony has a broken lock; is in need of repair so it slides easily. It was very hard for me to slide, I needed help and still struggled each time. The second floor sliding door was fine, but - again - the lock was broken. Lastly, the hair dryer (upper bathroom closet) did not work at all.
Other than the above, it was divine. All was impeccably clean and visually appealing. The curtains were of lovely fabric which matched perfectly with cushions, bed linens etc. Obviously great care and taste was used to make this setting special. Unlike many beach rentals, it had an interior that was as visually beautiful and restful as the ocean view. The kitchen and bathrooms appliances and design were amazing; furniture was high quality and subtle. Mirrors enhanced the space, making it appear surrounded by water on all sides. It never seemed cramped, thanks to the expertise in furniture choice, placement, comfort, attractive accessories.
Although detergent could have been provided for the washing machine, extra toilet paper, hand soap, liquid dish detergent in addition to a small packet of dishwasher detergent - I can't complain. I stayed a week and many guests would probably not require these items as small guest size bottles of shampoo and body wash were in place. Matching towels, sheets, blanket, cushions and other furnishings were plentiful, clean, and in great condition.
In summary, this cottage plus the amenities card and golf cart were a true delight. I highly recommend this property as well as the Resort service on the island. Kathryn Symington"
