Our party of 4 adults and 2 children rented the condo over the holiday season. This was the first time using VRBO and overall, we were very pleased. Peter and the process of using Paypal was smooth and simple. We were also encouraged to reach out to Barbara to arrange transportation. We were slightly skeptical of the informal process to "call when you arrive for a pick up and key" but this is how things work in the islands. From the time you walk off the plane, you slip into the relaxed island mode. Waiting 10 mins for a private pick up is no worry. We were quickly taken to our condo complex. It was true to the pictures - clean, well equipped and right on the water. Barbara gave us a quick tour around so we felt quick comfortable and at home.
Overall the island is very safe and you feel at ease going to the grocery. It is close enough to walk however coming home with bags, it's easier to jump on the bus for $1.25. There are also a few restaurants at Sandy Port (just over the bridge), Poop Deck and Nesbitts. Overall the food is a little heavy and greasy but this is the style - fried fritters and plaintain! Typically we would make a casual breakfast and lunch and then make dinner or go out. Twin Brother at the fish fry had a lovely steamed fish and conch salad!
The condo is equipped to make a nice meal and also has a few spices, sugar and other supplies (laundry soap, dish washer soap etc.). The unit is also stocked with beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, etc. so it's easy to relax at the beach. Climbing the rocks and snorkeling are also activities to break up the day. We also enjoyed a day in town for some shopping and a short trip to Atlantis.
Overall, a great trip! Thanks to Barbara for always checking in on us and making us feel at home!
