I was so over vacationing at the crowded hotels in Aruba, Cancun, and Puerto Rico. I was tired of having to get up at 7:00am to make sure I got a lounge chair and I was tired of waiting on line to be seated for an expensive mediocre breakfast. This is not what vacation should be about. Which is why I loved Windchat Villa in Eleuthera.
My precious family vacation time was not wasted on the things you need to deal with at a crowded hotel. But instead of me telling you what Windchat Villa is not, let me tell you what we loved about it.
We have two teenaged daughters so everyone was on their own morning schedule. My husband and I enjoyed a quiet morning sipping coffee on one veranda and finished our day sipping wine on another terrace watching the sunset.
Our daughters got up whatever time suited them, walked down the wooden stairs and met us on the white sand. Did I mention that no one else was on the beach but the four of us? Lying on the beach we would argue over which blue was more magnificent, the water or the sky.
Later in the day we changed our view to the one by the gorgeous pool.
In the evenings we played board games in the loft nook. We all love to read and there were so many cozy places both inside and outside of the villa to cuddle up with a book.
The local restaurants were all charming and delicious. When we wanted to eat in we were able to hire a personal chef for the evening. Everything you need or want can be arranged by Del, the concierge. One day the rest of the family took a boat tour while Del arranged for me to have a massage at the villa. Everyone was happy.
The best review I can give is that we just booked again for next year!
