Typically I visit a new vacation destination, check it off of my list, and plan for somewhere new the next time around. After having the pleasure of visiting this beautiful island and staying in this lovely penthouse condo with my husband and two teenagers, I'd gladly return year after year to enjoy a repeat of this wonderful week. I had never used vrbo.com, and I was more than a little nervous about booking with an individual instead of directly through a hotel. I was pleased to find that Louise was much more efficient, responsive, and helpful than any hotel I've ever worked with. She answered all of my questions and my reservation was handled in an extremely professional manner. The condo is located along the back of the property of Ocean Club West, less than a 5 minute walk to both the beach and several good, casual restaurants (we tried Jimmy's Dive Bar, Danny Buoy's, and the Seaside Café) . The furnishings were beautiful, the beds were comfortable, and it was very clean. Beach and pool chairs (as well as umbrellas) were plentiful. We spent most of each day floating in the crystal clear turquoise water on the floats provided in the condo. The pool was warm and clean as well. We used the kitchen to prepare breakfast and lunch, and it was equipped with much more than we needed. I borrowed a bike from OCW and rode to the Graceway Gourmet several times for provisions. On our last day, we rented a car and visited the Caicos Conch Farm, snorkeled at Bight Reef, and were amazed by the views of Chalk Sound (with a lovely lunch at Las Brisas). A car is nice, but certainly not a necessity at this property. We always felt very safe and comfortable in the casual atmosphere of the island. Everyone we met on the island seemed genuinely glad we were there and went above and beyond our expectations. For our family, this vacation was close to perfect.
