We arrived on the island having never been before. A short walk from the dock, we were pleased to finally (we'd been dreaming about this vacation for three months!) see Kendall Apartment. Beautiful wild flowers adorn the yard, and the patio and surrounding yard is as private as mentioned. This apartment is truly bright and sunny. The kitchen and living area is perfect for two. We stocked a large cooler with Trader Joe's treats and had most meals on the deck, watching the Monarch butterflies. Within a day or two, it felt like home.
Location, location, location. Kendall Apartment is conveniently located near Lobster Cove (see it!), The Black Duck (try their pie!) and The Novelty (delicious ice cream; get there before it closes at 8 PM!). Just up the hill from The Novelty is a perfect spot for watching the sunset... and star gazing. We saw numerous shooting stars! If you're an early riser (or even if you're not), be sure to take the Burnthead Trail out to the cliffs for the sunrise. We were also charmed by the colorful chickens in the front yard of the house across the street (their eggs are for sale at Carina).
It was a pleasure to rent this apartment from Dyan and we would definitely recommend it!
