I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was spotless.
The property manager was more than helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
This was the 2nd year that six of us stayed at this villa for a 2-week period, and we likely plan on returning again in the future. The view over Friar's Bay is spectacular and fun to watch even at night, but the villa is just a short walk to our favorite and isolated Happy Bay, as well. The nice open kitchen allows for meal preparation as well as socializing space with fellow guests, and the two terraces (upper one shaded and lower one with sun and private pool) were a great plus. The perfect spot to enjoy sunsets. There were a few deferred maintenance items that need attention, and this was disappointing given the cost of renting this villa: There were no lights working on the upper terrace, and they all had to be rewired to get them functioning (this was actually taken care of for us); the microwave did not work and was never replaced during our stay although we notified the manager about this several times; the DVD player is a very old one and does not function, and we had planned on using this; the satellite TV remote did not work, so it was very difficult to operate; one of the bathroom sink faucets was very loose and required two hands to operate so this needs attention; the sliding glass door in one bedroom did not lock (so we had to use the hurricane shutters to secure the room) and several other light fixtures either did not work or had burned-out bulbs (including the pool light). We encourage a little bit of work to improve the maintenance on this property, as it is otherwise very spectacular at a fair price.
Improvement suggestions: upstairs bedroom replace the old noisy air conditioning system with a new, efficient split system that would be much quieter. (This was done in the other rooms but needs to be done here.) On the upper terrace, a privacy curtain on each side (like the neighbors have) would block out some adjoining parking. An indoor table and chairs would be nice, and there is ample room for it.
