The photos barely are able to do justice to this jaw-dropping and totally stunning house. The lookout tower provides some of the best Piton views on the whole island and the three-sided house affords cool breezes and unrestricted ocean views. The house is a short drive or walk from Jalousie's lovely Sugar Beach and hop away from the trailhead of Gros Piton nature trail. The staff, Mary and Pious, we're incredibly kind, making our stay as enjoyable as possible. There are a wealth of daytime activities to take advantage of, as well as swishy dining options within a short drive.
We rented the house with two other couples but in the future would probably just rent for a total of 4 people. One bedroom is a bit of a pass through, which is probably great for families and children, but a little less than optimal for couples. That said, we still had a blast!
With permission, we hosted our rehearsal dinner at the house, welcoming 20+ guests to enjoy the beauty of Maison and take part in a fun filled feast. The house and staff were generous and accomodating to the extreme and the event was a total success.
The swinging chairs and poolside lounging inspire relaxation and the open concept kitchen made shared cooking responsibilities a joy. The sound system is also great, so don't forget to pack some music!
The weather was perfect, bugs were not a factor, and every day waking up in Maison was a thrill. The only thing I would caution is that if you have mobility or vision issues, this is probably not the house for you. The steps and numerous and uneven, challenging during the day and increasingly tricky at night.
Overall, an awesome, epic time, we hope to return again! A+!
