I'd love to give the place 4 stars but there were several issues that came up that potential visitors need to be aware of.

Water from the plumbing - is gold to brown and we were advised not to drink it by the management company. Could be from the metal roof collection system or heavy rain causing dirt from nearby to wash into system. But we had to buy bottled water to use and we weren't expecting that or told of that in advance.

Mosquitos and bugs - get inside the upper and lower part of the house very easily as the residence isn't really sealed. So expect to be bitten in the middle of the night and while just hanging out. My wife had to sleep in bug spray lotion and still got bit. Only thing that helped was keeping the air conditioning on the cold side. While the lower part of the house has screens, there are massive holes and gaps that let bugs in while you are trying to eat or cook. No fun. Felt like we were camping.

Kitchen - there is no real (normal sized) oven, just a stove top missing dials and microwave and toaster. The oven there we could not get to work. You can't cook a frozen pizza so shop accordingly. The refrigerator won't fit much and the freezer part will not do the job. And there is no dishwasher so many of the pots, pans and cooking items were on the dirty side.

TV - there is no satellite or cable tv. Just a DVD hooked up. So while being on vacation is nice, we didn't expect to be totally marooned from news or some relaxing downtime in front of the tube. The wifi was not very consistent and was down several days during our trip. So for those thinking you'll just go to Netflix, expect it to be down here and there.

The only other negatives were rockslides on the road. One chair sized rock came within a foot of our rental car.

we didn't really expect or want housecleaning renting a house but they managed to come twice in the week when we were away even though we are quite self reliable.

The good to great things - views are wonderful. Privacy was excellent. The beaches were beautiful. The baths relaxing. There is a waterfall next to the pools and bedroom that is heavy after rainfall. It was very nice to have a washer and dryer for clothes. Bed was comfortable. I'm not sure there are any better choices for the money. So hopefully they can address these issues for future visitors so they can better enjoy when away from the beaches.

Dear Robert, thank you for your review. We are very pleased that you were able to enjoy the sound of the natural waterfall and the wonderful views during your stay.
I understand there were some unusual heavy rains during your stay which can lead to an increase in mosquitoes. I will however, check with our management team regarding any holes in the mosquito screens.

We strive to use only desalinated water for daily use in the house but when there are heavy rains unfortunately the water from the roof does collect in the cistern thus giving the water a discoloured appearance. It is quite safe for general use. Bottled water is ALWAYS recommended in the islands despite the whole house filter we have installed. We do not advertise cable or satellite tv and in the event of occasional inclement weather the internet, I'm afraid can be intermittent. Unfortunately this is out of our control.



Kind regards
Laura
