We really had a great time at the Blue Villa. The beach is a short walk down the path at the end of Donkey Lane, takes 2 - 3 minutes. The pool was wonderful and a great place to hang out. The IGA grocery store is within walking distance, but if you do get a car, it is less than a 5 minute drive away. Prices are more than they are at home, but not too terribly bad. The villa is nicely furnished and comfortable. We used the grill just about every night. Louise was great to work with, she always responded to any request we had during the rental process. After we got there we could not find the gas cylinder for the grill. We emailed Louise and she got right back to us with the information on how to access it. We did some snorkeling on Smith's Reef (there is a part of the reef that is located right near to where the path comes out onto the beach). If you want to find some nice shells, take a trip up to the Leeward side of the island and go to Emerald Point, a really beautiful spot. We found quite a few shells up there. We really enjoyed our stay and Louise was a pleasure to work with.
