The apartment was nice- not opulent, but functional- and the property is beautiful. Basically a microcosm of the whole island. The price for the stay was really good and with the money we saved we could wine and dine at will. We will be back here soon.

Enjoyed our stay. Close to beach and pool. Great places to eat very close. Bring your own beach towels. Loved the screen porch and the use of chairs and umbrella at beach. Kids had a blast. Would love to go back

“Exhaust fans in both bathrooms should be checked - very noisy. Toilet in master bath should be checked - the actuating lever sometimes sticks and the water keeps running.”
