We just returned from a dream vacation. It started from the moment we were picked at the airport up by Wendell and Xinia. They gave us a gracious welcome, then conducted a mini-"guided tour" of the island on the trip to their home. In the process, they got a good feel for our interests, and were able to direct us to restaurants, parks, and events that we would enjoy.
Believe the other five star reviews! The million-dollar view, the wonderful location, the gracious hosts and clean/well appointed apartment are all accurate. We can add a few more features. The apartment has beach chairs, an umbrella and snorkeling gear for two. There is no need to rent or bring your own.
It is an easy ten minute walk to the famous Horseshoe Bay. (Check to see if a cruise ship in. The beach could be crowded.) If you want solitude and good snorkeling, the apartment's private beach is the place to go. And Church Bay, a quick bus trip from the apartment, has the best bay snorkeling. (It's easiest to enter the water near the foot of the steps. Rocks in the surf make it tricky to enter farther down the beach.)
We also enjoyed watching stars on the deck (trying the Star Walk app was fun). Sitting in the beautiful garden area and feeding the birds was a special treat. And, of course, chatting with Wendell and Xenia was always a pleasure. They are truly special people.
We can't wait to go back.
