Quart-A-Nancy is Quite-A-Place!!!! The privacy and amenities provided in this lovely hillside home made for a wonderful Cooper Island vacation experience for us during our 4th visit to this unique and special island. It truly is a spectacular setting, and the owners have made some lovely renovations and upgrades to their home. We have been to many Caribbean destinations, but have to say that the view from the glorious front porch is probably the most beautiful we have ever experienced!!!! You could spend your entire vacation just sitting there savoring the sunsets and watching the sail boats and cruise ships pass by. Showering will never be the same again once you have used the fabulous new open air one! The house provides excellent grilling facilities and has a very well-equipped kitchen (I even made muffins!),as well as a generous supply of linens/towels. Having the Internet access and TV was a real plus too. As always, the warm and friendly CIBC staff was most accommodating in ensuring that we had everything we needed during our stay.
Having stayed at the CIBC during our prior visits to the island, I would have to say the only negative with staying at Quart-A-Nancy rather than in one of the efficiencies, is accessibility. If you plan to have all your meals at the house, and don't wish to sun-bathe /swim from a sandy beach, then Quart-A-Nancy is definitely the place for you. However, if you do plan to spend much time over at the CIBC, be aware that getting back and forth can be challenging. While the hillside location affords privacy and a spectacular view, it IS quite a hike up and down, and certainly not for those who are not physically fit. Don't pack just your flip-flops; bring your sneakers!!! Also, depending on wind /weather conditions, the trip back and forth via dinghy can be tricky as well, and would recommend that you not make this your first boating experience if you are not already accustomed to the sport.
Overall though, we had a wonderful stay, and thank the Kruse family for sharing their lovely home, and allowing us to experience Cooper Island from a perspective we never would have experienced otherwise. As you indicate in your description - it truly is a small piece of paradise!
