We just spent a lovely week here and can't say enough good things about this property and its owners.
For starters, it's perfectly located. A short walk or drive in one direction and you're at Lambert's Cove, one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen - Caribbean included. Its calm, clear waters are perfect for children (and adults who don't enjoy getting pummeled by waves). A few minutes in the other direction and you're at a gorgeous, deep, unspoiled pond that's part of the Land Bank Preserve. Both places are treasures.
As for the property itself, my husband and I joked that it should be on HGTV. Alice (the owner) made such great use of the space - there was a place for everything. There was ample closet and drawer space, comfy beds, and even a washing machine. Everything was spotless. Our family of 3 never felt cramped.
The kitchen had all the tools you'd need to prepare simple meals (a single electric burner, toaster oven, microwave, coffeemaker, and a grill outside). There's no oven, but trust me - you're on vacation, you'll never miss it.
Alice was a wonderful host. Because we booked a little late in the season, we had trouble getting ferry reservations. She was kind enough to work with us on arrival/departure dates to ensure our trip could happen. She also met us on arrival to give us the scoop on the week's events - things to do, places to eat, etc. We would have missed so many fun things without her advice.
Now that we've fallen in love with Lambert's Cove and this sweet "treetop" property, my family agrees it would be hard to stay anywhere else on MV. We'll be back for sure!
