“Simply Amazing!!”
Reviewed 22 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We arrived the first week in December. Despite the gloomy forecast and winds that blew 25 miles per hour, Mark's condo at On The Bay did not mar our vacation at all. I'm not a surfer, but for those who are, you will delight in the eight-foot majestic waves that crest the shores of Old Man Bay in early December. For photographers, it is a sight not to be believed. And for those who were expecting a gentler ocean, don't despair. We found the small lagoon right on the property the perfect place for an afternoon dip. Despite the surf crashing the shoreline, this little tidal pool had calm waters that were warm as a baby's bath water, no undertow, and lots of colorful fish darting in and out of the nooks and crannies of the live rock reef that lined the sea wall. There may be winds strong enough to bend coconut trees but right on the sand, it's amazing that the beach furniture doesn't blow away. The breeze is calmer that you can lie down and catch some rays when the sun peaks through. At night, with the sliding doors in the master bedroom ajar, I loved the calming sound of the surf that lulled me to the best sleep I've had in a long time.

The condo had lots of space for my family of five and provided everything you need to make you feel like it was your own comfortable paradise away from home.

If you wanted to check out other beaches for snorkeling, try Queen's Monument on the North side. We even went as far as Collier's Public Beach where there wasn't a single soul and you had the whole stretch of sand to yourself, all within less than a 7-minute drive from the condo.

And the local food OMG ... Kurt's Corner, Over the Edge, Tuka's, and even Mrs. Vivene's funky Kitchen Restaurant only a 2-10 minute drive from the condo ... I can't say enough about the different Caribbean cuisine we dined on: the fried conch steak, curried goat, oxtail stew, fried fish, jerk chicken...

I loved that On the Bay condos were away from the maddening tourist crowd of Georgetown yet the island was small enough that you could circle it in half a day. If you wanted a more vibrant scene, it's a short drive. The roads are all well-paved and brightly lit so there was no problem getting around even with a left hand drive. (Can’t explain why, but Google Maps and GPS on my Android phone worked even on airplane mode). Of all the islands I've visited in the Caribbean, GC is a definite must-go-back-to and wouldn't hesitate to stay at Mark's On The Bay Condo again.

“Spectacular!!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed here for 10 days in May, 2014 and the condo or location could not have been better. The condo was spacious and very clean, just as portrayed on the web site. Everything was here that we needed including lots of towels and sunscreen. We were very comfortable, especially being beach front. We sat in the morning with our coffee enjoying the beautiful surf and sunshine. In the evening, we enjoyed a glass of wine and watched the sun set. We had absolutely no problems during our stay and would go back in a New York minute!!! Thanks for a wonderful stay!!

“Perfect for our family.”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This condo worked perfectly for our family. We all had our own bedroom and bathroom. We grilled out every night and enjoyed waking up and to a fabulous view of the ocean. The lagoon was perfect for our children to snorkel in and the neighbors were great. We had some problems getting our luggage from the airlines and the property manager was very helpful in coordinating the drop off to our condo. This was a very quiet and relaxing part of the island. We felt safe and had a great experience renting from the owner. We will be back!
