We cannot say enough about the care and attention that Dominique and Audrey provided us from the day we started planning to the day we left as they were available to help with any questions or provide any requested service. They both take their responsibilities very seriously and it was such a comfort to know that they were just a phone call away. Although, there is little need to call. Every possible need was anticipated – the Villa is spotless and has everything in it from totally furnished kitchen to relaxing sitting areas, ample chaise lounges and the wonderful Kayaks!!!
Pinal Island is a paradise and kayaking over to it was the greatest of fun. Be aware that there is not any real beach at the Villa – it is a small area with a dock and more of a kayak launch – although my granddaughters did swim off of it….but the beach area had lots of seed weed and not inviting but we did not care as you only need to take that 10 minute kayak ride to Pinal and there it is!!! Beautiful beaches and walking trails!
The advantage of this is that by not having a long beach created tremendous security - one feels like they could sleep with the 35 break away wall open all night. There is a complete sense of privacy and you feel as if you are tucked away on a little hill over the bay surrounded by lush foliage (but that does block your views to the bay). With the wall open it is as if you have a swimming pool in your living room. Also good to know is that the two back bedrooms on the first floor are large but dark and no view and only meant for sleeping but the master upstairs has magnificent views, although not from your bed – the windows do not go to the floor. Each of the three bedrooms has large, fully modern and fabulous full bathrooms and there is a washer and dryer (although the dryer doesn’t dry but who needs it – there was a clothes line and great breezes). As a tip, there is a short path off the dock down at the launch that allows you to walk over to where the ferry goes to Pinal, in case you don’t want to Kayak. There is a food truck in the parking lot that has the greatest hamburgers (reasonably priced) and even omelets for breakfast. But we never wanted to leave our wonderful Villa for breakfast – as the sun rises from the East right into the Villa and created magical mornings! Thank you Dominique-- for providing us with a beautiful memory of the spectacular St. Martins and Pinal Island.
