26 January 2013
Extended family group, 6 adults and 2 infants, enjoyed a comfortable relaxed week's winter respite, Jan 26-Feb 2 and recommend this villa without reservation. The constant breeze thru the villa providing day comfort was as advertised, large motorized shutters allowed variation of breeze and sun exposure as desired, night-time use room air conditioning worked well . Well placed outdoor gas grill was clean and functioned well. Ocean and beach views from covered terrace, villa-level sitting garden spot, and umbrella shaded lower sunbathing gazebo were excellent (though Dawn Beach view extending to right is blocked by Westin at the villa level). Lovely floor and bath tiling reflects the owner's business. Decor is tastefully eclectic with indoor comfortable furniture and beds and good outdoor seating and dining amenities. Sheets, towels, and pillows are good to excellent. Craig, the on-site personable and always available caretaker is a definite plus, which includes meeting guests at airport and escorting to villa. Natesha provides excellent twice weekly villa cleaning...and is available to arrange other services or extra cleaning if desired. Recommended nearby (walkable or short drive) restaurants are Daniels and Big Fish for bar/pizza/dinner and adjacent Westin bar/casino. A short drive away just off the main road are the Butterfly farm and highly recommeded for small children, Le Galion beach.
