The property was lovely. It's only a few years old so everything was like new, the bedding, furniture, floors, walls, washer/dryer, dishwasher and other kitchen equipment. It was clean, well furnished and equipped with everything we needed to have a comfortable stay. The rooms had plenty of space for unpacking and storing our things. The kitchen had everything we needed from cookware to storage containers for leftovers and had a decently stocked pantry. There were plenty of towels (both bath and beach), linens, pillows and other such items. The A/C units are per room - which was great as it allowed us to have total control over the temperature.
They provided very helpful instructions on 'how to's for the condo, plus suggestions for places around the island to shop, gas up and eat. Everyone we met on the island was incredibly friendly from shop owners, to fisherman to people we stopped and asked for directions. The manager met us when we arrived, checked in on us daily and came on the day of check out to say goodbye.
Per the suggestion of the owner, we split our visit between different parts of the island, north, central and south. In the north we bought tree ripened mango's which were amazing, bought eggs from the organic farmer and spent a day on Harbour island. In the south we went to the mysterious Ocean Hole and ate some fresh made conch fritters.Who am I kidding, we at conch fritters every where we went! In the central part of the island, where the condo is located, we enjoyed several beaches including French Leave beach and ate at several local places including the Beach House. We snorkeled every where we went. One day we just hung out at the property and went kayaking and just relaxed!
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who likes to stay away from crowds, loves amazing creamy white sand beaches (which were EMPTY), warm crystal clear water and desires out of the way places. Buttonwood is perfectly located mid-island allowing for easy access to both the north and south, as well as all the mid-island attractions (beaches, restaurants, shopping).
