In a beautifull tropical garden, it's amazing property, very quiet place with a direct view on the lagoon. Very close from the ocean and the beach (500 feet).

Good Choice for our 25th Wedding Anniversary

  • 4 of 5
We chose Tower House Bungalow for our 25th wedding anniversary, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property was more than adequate as our base from which to explore the island. We typically cooked breakfast in the well equipped kitchen, packed a lunch to take with us, and ate in one of many restaurants for our evening meal.

Renting a car was a must. We started our adventure with a drive completely around the island our first day, choosing places to which we wanted to return. We planned out each day around a significant destination, and filled in with other things to see and do in each area. Our favorite beach was Friar's Bay. There was no seaweed at all. It was fairly quiet. Yet there were two restaurants/bars right on the beach to ensure we had plenty of food and drink.

Our favorite adventure was the Rhino Safari, where we rode out to a snorkeling adventure on our own personal mini-boat. We enjoyed it so much we did it twice!

Favorite restaurant? It is hard to say. We enjoyed the Dinghy Dock, Mama's Pizza, Beaubeau's, and many more.

There were a couple of things that could have made this a little better, and it was mostly communication. First, it was a surprise to find out that air conditioning meant that only our bedroom was air conditioned. Since we arrived on a very hot day, that came as a shock. Once we grew accustomed to the idea, it really was not much of a bother. Secondly, written directions from the airport would have made our first trip across the island much easier. The roads are not well marked, and we had a difficult time finding our rental. Third, if we had been given a gate access code before arriving, we wouldn't have had to park in the narrow street, waiting for someone to open the gate.

These things were all fairly minor, but together added up to enough inconvenience that we couldn't quite give a 5-star rating. That said, we would love to return for another visit, knowing now what to expect.

Back Again

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at Tower House again this year from 2/28/14 - 3/10/14. Wonderful time! Enjoyed watching the hundreds of sailboats due to the Regatta from Busby's. Each day we went to Dawn Beach to enjoy the company of the folks who come back year after year. Did a boating trip and signed up with Anna who was walking Dawn Beach advertising the snorkeling and full day boat trip and booked it then and saved $10.00 each so was $200.00 for day included soft drinks, beer, lunch and we had a great time. We hope to make it back again to the Tower House next year. Love the privacy and if you choose excitement its only minutes away. Thank you again Claire and Pierre for a fantastic time.

Magnifique bungalow

  • 5 of 5
Les deux chiennes sont les fidèles gardiens de ce endroit de tranquillité, de détente. Les lever et coucher de soleil sont envoûtants.
Les propriétaires sont charmants et conviviaux.
L'endroit est propice pour faire de la plongée sous-marine où un vrai zoo aquatique vous attend (raies, poissons coffre, langoustes, quelques petits requins,....) (Bubble Shop à Baie Orientale)
Les restaurants aux alentours sont nombreux et il y a un vaste choix.
Les plages sont belles et facile d'accès.
Il ne nous reste plus qu'à revenir !

Tower House

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Tower House from March 1-10th and had a fantastic time! The property is located right on the French boarder and Dawn Beach is within walking distance however we chose to drive since we had a cooler and large beach bag (both in the closet in the bedroom). You can park at Busby's if you are using the beach but expect to pay $12.00 for 2 chairs and an umbrella. We ate here several times for lunch, had appetizers and stayed for happy hour for half off drinks. The local beer, Bright, is $1.00 from 11-4:00 daily. The food was good. We didn't have dinner here because several of the folks we met and visited on a daily basis said that Daniel's By the Sea which is the name of the restaurant at night time took way to long for dinner (2 hours and longer). My husband nor I have the patience to wait that long. There is a dock right across the street from Busby's and the guys bring in fresh fish around noon time each day which you can buy, but you better be there early or reserve some fish because its that great all cleaned and ready for the grill. We seasoned the fish and wrapped it in foil and put it on the grill - out of this world!
Tower House is very comfortable. One bedroom with a king size bed, small living room and kitchen, wonderful large deck with grill. I only used the pool once because its about 6 to 7 feet deep and you can't walk in to get used to the water so you have to use a ladder to get in and out. Dawn Beach was so close that we hung out here mostly for the entire day and the water was warmer than the pool. The dogs were very friendly and we enjoyed their company. When we left on Sunday around 12:15 we thought it would take us at least an hour to get to the airport due to the high volume of traffic, but surprisingly we were there in 25 minutes so we turned around and ate lunch at a little tiny restaurant right next to Johnny B's and the fish was out of this world! My husband and I split it and we still couldn't eat it all. Had no problems with car rental, but do expect the Toyotas to be beat up. When driving be cautious and courteous. By the way we were told could bring back 5 cartons of cigarettes which is not true. Only 1 carton non taxable so we had 4 cartons and had to pay another $20.00 for the other 3 at customs. No big deal since they were only $20 a carton. We can't wait to go back next year! Thank you so much Claire and Pierre.
