My boyfriend and I travel often and decided to go somewhere new for his 40th Birthday. I found this beachfront cottage and was beyond pleased with my choice! The cottage is a perfect size for couples and had everything you need. I dont think we needed anything more than what was supplied already! It was a pleasant surprise to find items like dish soap, salt and pepper, coffee and coffee filters already stocked (as its such a waste to have to buy them for a short weeks visit- you can never use a whole bottle of dish soap or 50 coffee filters in that time!)
The property owners sent us a packet of useful information prior to arriving. Upon our arival, we met Deb, who was extremely helpful with getting us settled in- she even helped use arrange a taxi ahead of time :) From getting to know whats around to which restaurants have events on specific nights, Deb was a valuable resource!
We rented bikes from the dive shop that is only about a two minute walk from the cottage. We were able to bike around most of the island and explore. The dive shop folks were very helpful and famliy-like. They pointed us in the right direction for the best snorkeling and where to find other things we needed. All of the town restaurants/bars are within walking distance (excpet Bohio, which is about a 10 minute bike ride). We could even walk to the liquor store! The larger grocery store is a little long for a walk but is about a 5-10 minute bike ride, easily do-able.
The cottage had everything we look for in a vacation rental- on the beach (and we were the ONLY people on it 99% of the time- which we loved), close to dining and necessities, and best of all- very private and low key!
The porch was perfect for coffee in the morning, or wine in the evening, playing cards and relaxing- and thanks to the internet we could use the international music radio app "jango" (like pandora but can be accessed outside of the USA).
We have already discussed that we plan on returning to this relaxing oasis. One of our favorite trips by far!!!
