When we arrived at Ocean Oasis we were very pleased to see how easily we could park several cars. We passed a very cute gazebo covered table with benches. Really colorful and attractive. There were several bench swings that I couldn't wait to try out.
As soon as we opened the door I thought "Wow, this is really nice. But it is entirely too small and will never work for 8 people all of whom like their own space". I panicked a little bit. We were enchanted with the decor. Attractive, homey and not overdone. Very much like I would have decorated. (Even our taste in books is similar!) Loved the wood furniture and the rocking chairs. We also greatly appreciated the obvious addition of lounge chairs outside to accommodate our group of eight. It didn't take me long to realize the house flowed perfectly. There were two large rockers that were placed between the dining and TV area that just made it work. Space was never an issue.
The view from the windows in the back.....It is what people dream of. Magnificent. I spent many hours outside just arranging and photographing shells and coral. Made me happy and kept me quiet for quite some time.
There was a grill, canoes and even snorkel gear for those who do not bring their own. Kitchen is fully equipped. Bathrooms clean and spacious.
One of my favorite things was the "karma basket". All degrees of sunscreen to take and leave. Great idea. Towels were provided, as were these great little insulated travel bags to carry drinks with their own logo. Tina even thought to provide post cards with the property pictured. Loved it!
I also loved the shampoo and conditioner. Smelled fabulous! I can't think of one missed detail.
Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate with us. We traveled the island most days in order to find good snorkeling. I would have loved to have 2-3 days to just hang out on our private beach and explore the water there. The less than perfect weather just provided another reason to come back and see what the snorkeling from shore was like. If we bring all the kids and their significant others (aged 20-25), we will defiantly choose our new home away from home "Ocean Oasis".
Thank you for sharing with us Tina. Thanks for all the ease of booking and follow up as well. You will be booked solid soon.
My dtr and I research thoroughly. Your home, the location and price can not be beat. Add in all the extras and it is an easy choice. If you want quiet, peaceful and pleasant, this is a perfect choice.
