This villa was absolutely five stars for us. The view is absolutely stunning, the house has beautiful stone and woodwork throughout. All of the bedrooms are large and comfortable and all face the incredible view. The placed is incredibly private, you feel like you're on your own estate although you're only a minute or two from two of the best restaurants on the island and only about ten minutes from town. You also have your own almost private back road - less than a minute - to the drive up volcano where you can take mud baths - we did it every day. Amazing for the skin and lots of other ailments.
The staff was great, there we you needed them and not when you didn't. They would bring fresh fruit daily, picked from the grounds of the estate.
The owners, Myrna and Sylvia, were fabulous. They helped with anything we needed, they even arranged a car for us with a great rental company. The rental company, And's (he also goes by Andy) was very helpful. He replaced our first car when it started acting strangely, we didn't even have to leave the house, he had it driven right to our doorstep.
Myrna and Sylvia and Andy also came through in an emergency for us. We made it to the airport, almost an hour away and realized we had left our passports in the safe (make yourself a checklist now!). We didn't have time to make the return trip back and then back again - although Andy had the car brought back to us instantly for that purpose. They arranged to have a motorcycle driver zip to the villa, grab the passports and bring them to us at the airport. Lifesaver!
Overall, fantastic experience. We got to experience the food and the beaches at the best resorts but we had better accommodations at a better price with our own PRIVATE pool and a kitchen. We had a harpoon fisherman (we left his number in the guest book) bring us fish caught an hour earlier, filleted and ready to cook. When we go back, we'll do it the exact same way.
