We were the first people to be lucky enough to rent this beautiful home. Karen and Ibro were very helpful and friendly. They even surprised us with a nice basket of goodies on arrival.
The house is absolutely beautiful. We loved the décor and all the nice little touches. Everything in the house is pleasing to the eye. The kitchen is just as it appears in the pictures. It is well stocked (they even had nice clean spices, sugar, flour and oil available for our use). There was nothing we needed that was not available. The water is filtered and the fridge was great for water and ice.
The beds were true kings and very comfortable, especially the one with memory foam. The AC throughout the house was powerful but the house was fairly cool just with the fans and the doors open. The screens on the doors and windows kept the bugs out. We did not get any bites while at this house.
The TV and WiFi worked well. We lost Wifi for one day but as soon as I let Ibro know, he had it back up and running. Our cell service with Verizon was very poor at the house (no fault of the owners, just an FYI).
Bathrooms are very nice and they thought of everything we might need (hair dryer, shampoo, razors, toothpaste, insect repellant, lotion, etc).
The views from both decks were amazing. The location is absolutely perfect because the house is in a very quiet area on a beautiful bay with no traffic except the occasional boat mooring (we think Johnny Depp's boat was out there one day). You are literally 2 miles from Cruz Bay with the best grocery stores and lots of restaurants, but you would never know it looking out the window.
The water in the bay was beautiful. The entry is a little bit difficult when there is some surf (most days we had some surf, but it was December). The snorkeling in the bay was great if you could get past the entry. They had a nice kayak and paddle board for use in the bay as well. These were really nice to have because it was easier to get out onto the water using the kayak.
I was worried about privacy from the main house prior to booking. This was not a problem at all. In fact we sort of wished we had seen Karen and Ibro more because they were so nice and helpful. The driveway and parking were perfect. There is a nice pad for parking which allows you to turn around easily. It is not steep like many of the driveways on the island.
I would not hesitate to rent this house again.
